Summer 2011

Summer 2011

This season honestly doesn’t look that great. But there’s a few multi-season shows which I am continuing to watch, and a couple of new things on my radar. Here goes:

Yes

  • Usagi Drop — A rare thing; this show is actually, legitimately cute without being stereotypically moe.
  • Steins;Gate — Continuing. It has me quite hooked.
  • Hanasaku Iroha — Continuing into its second half, but I’ve been slowly falling behind. It’s OK tho: I caught up now, and we’re cool again.
  • Mawaru Penguindrum — The director of Utena returns. I’m not sure what this is, but it’s awesome.

As Time Permits

Wait and See

I waited, and I saw. (Or didn’t see, as the case may be.)

No

  • R-15. Honestly, who comes up with this stuff?
  • No. 6
  • Ikoku Meiro no Croisée — Mostly because it has Yuuki Aoi (Victorica from GOSICK, Madoka). As a side character. The translation convention in this show is horrible.

As always, a more well-rounded opinion and a more complete overview can be found at Anime News Network’s Summer 2011 Anime Preview Guide and in the Summer 2011 Anime Chart.
