Anime in the Second School Days Age

Recently rewatching Kimikiss Pure Rouge with my roommates; now rewatching True Tears—of course, it’s their first time through—I realize how much better the world is for the show that taught anime viewers that perfectly normal[1] schoolkids could just murder each other on the drop of the hat. Rewatching that train wreck with my roommates was the best decision I could have made. I planted memes in their memescapes that would improve All Anime Forever.

I’ve been watching very little anime, of late, so I have to make what I do watch count. And most of that is rewatching: reliving experiences I know I’ll enjoy. I’ve been doing a good job of that. Maybe I’m missing out on current anime; I’m inclined to think I’m not. I’ve tried things here and there. They didn’t work for me. Kyoto Animation, rather than a studio I can love to hate or hate to love, has just become a disappointment. Yamakan is still making shit, I guess, and that’s almost worth raising an eyebrow over but I can’t be assed. Os tells me that Hirano Aya released more “music” and it took effort to respond with derision. There’re a lot of things I care about, and being an enthusiastic asshole about anime and anime-related things is no longer one of them. That said, I like to think my impeccable taste has held up.

What’s good?

Is this thing even on?

If you can find me a good show, I’ll write some things about it.

It might be nice to pop in every now and then.

  1. Your roommate likes teenage romance?

    Your post would be just in time to get some Nagi no Asukara. Think of it as True Tear returns to origin.

  2. Your roommate likes teenage romance?


    Nagi no Asukara seemed terribad. Is it not?

  3. Nagi no Asakura turned out much better than it’s whiny beginnings.

    I still think you should look into Kyousougiga. Not a teenage romance.

  4. I’d say that Kyousogiga is probably a valid answer too. It excels at being very “anime” while also kind of not falling into the same bullshit. I’d rec Shin Sekai Yori on that same tip.

    Also, Yamakan’s last anime was not bad at all. But maybe you shouldn’t trust me. My taste is worse than Omo’s lately. just ask him.

    • I don’t know, for someone who’s dipping back to the stuff WUG might be too much, taste notwithstanding.

      I would just punt to the Idolm@ster anime if you are going down that route. Or try out a little of Love Live.

      • Zeroblade’s been spamming Facebook with so much Love Live shit I feel I’ve already seen it. Even though I have no idea what it’s about (idols?). @otou-san, seen Shin Sekai Yori, thought it was pretty great. Thanks :)

  5. I haven’t watched anything for a couple years now, and though I’ve lightly observed the reactionsphere, I am quite doubtful that the 13/14 crop is distinguished in any particular way.

    Genre Plateau, perhaps.
