And dest you make it sound like we're bitter old men (which we might be >_>), but the truth is most anime IS crap... it's the few that aren't that keeps me in it though.
Real Drive is great
it's my second-favourite of the season (behind Chi's Sweet Home, of course) o_o It has cool animation and it's not really like anythign else coming out at the moment. It possibly suffers from Shirow Masamune something something... I mean, he just churns out a lot of stuff wit hthe same basic theme. But it's great anyway.
Chi's Sweet Home
: Awesome. Sweet stories about a kitten.
: sci fi, robot hot girls, people who 'dive' into a huge internet mind thing. Except the mind thing is like the sea and the people who dive are literally divers o_O idk, it's cool anyway.
Daughter of Twenty Faces
: Mildly interesting. A thief organisation headed by a charismatic dude who takes a young girl in tow and they foil bad guys' plots and take a token piece of jewellery.
Mnemosyne no musume tachi
: Sci-fi, dark futuristic kind of thing. Big-breasted invincible woman runs a detective agency (lah) but it might turn out ok.
Toshokan Sensou / Library Wars
Tomboyish girl joins a military force to shoot the dudes who try to censor books. It's a silly concept. A little political, a little silly. It's kind of like Pumpkin Scissors in that the army force is lame.
Shion no Ou
: (last season but slow subs) o-o um. sports anime about Go and psychology. the art looks like Jigoku Shoujo. I don't really like it but my girlfrined is addicted.
looks interesting. there's a dude who checks out stuff adn likes to fight. I havne't seen it/
Surreal, fantastic, sci-fi bizarreness. Looks kind of 50's o_o but the art style definitely works in its favour to express the poignancy and such. cos lots of people die in dramatic ways, but it's not a standard gore/violence based thing. SO yah, 10/10 on the cool scale.
: Present-day-ish schoolkid thrown into Edo-era tokyo with fantasy monsters and desu eye powers. Meh, but idk, if you like that sort of thing it's probably interesting.
: shitty teen mahou shoujo with a twist.
himitsu: the revelation
: shite. tries to be serious with a whole thing about getting memories from dead people and using them to eat murderers' livers or something like that . I forget. It was very dumb.
Again, I haven't seen it. I can't imagine that I'd like it. THe original movie was a super duper macho-fest but I get the feeling that this one is just cashing in and won't be able to capture the pure cheese awesomness of the original.
that's about it, afaik.
