2011 Summer Anime Season Opinions and Recommendations… Thus Far

July 15, 2011

Whee!!! The summer season is upon us and as always, I have yet to finish most of my previous season’s anime. But, considering that I still have one month of Summer Vacation left, I was able to, believe it or not, watch the first episodes of most of the anime on offer this season!

A feat deserving of a standing ovation… if I do say so myself. Anyways, here are my brief opinions on this season’s shows based solely on the first episode together with my rating.

In the immortal words of Mario, “Here We Go!”

OMG! Time sure flies. Within a blink of an eye, it has already been almost a month since I’ve posted something on this blog! Anyways, the reason that I’ve been away for so long is because of my finals, which just ended this past week (as stated on my Youtube Channel). Now that it is three months of freedom, it’s time to crank up the dial to 11 and get some posts, reviews and Anime watching done!!! First off, let’s start off with the stuff that I’ve acquired over these past two months. Basically, these things are the stuff that I’ve refrained from opening till summer break and now’s the time to indulge!!!

The True Target Audience of Anime

March 2, 2011

I chanced upon this picture and could not not share it. It’s the official Sales and Marketing report for the Anime ‘Futari wa Precure’. Check out the circled table which is labled ‘Main Target’ (audience).

Boys: 16~18, 19~22, 23~30, 31~35
Girls: 4~6, 7~9, 10~12

Next time someone gets on your back for watching/liking Anime meant for little girls, you can now tell them it’s officially for grown men as well. (^.^;)

*For the record, I love Precure, with my favorite being Heartcatch. The original was good, but had some elements that really annoyed me, especially the ‘buy our merchandise’ vibe and stupid villains which thankfully has slowly been diminishing with each new series. Have to admit though, that theme is catchy as hell and I <3 Nagisa. That is all.
