Denpa Onna Episode 13

With the release of the 7th Blu-ray for Denpa Onna the first season has come to a close. As you might expect from a Blu-ray by Shaft it's pretty high-tier in terms of animation. They might have problems in the TV run but when it comes to discs they don't mess around.

When I first heard this series was gonna be animated by Shaft I thought we would have another Bake and Madoka on our hands. After actually watching the series I realized that I might have overestimated this series. Denpa Onna was missing the one thing all series should have which was "Story". I can honestly say that the only thing this series had going was character design. With that in mind OH GOD THAT CHARACTER DESIGN HNGGGGGGGGGG!!!! Achem..sorry I got a little sidetracked there. Seriously though it's not like the story was bad it's just that it wasn't as enticing as the story Bake or Madoka had. It's actually quite interesting how ridiculously good the character designs this series had. Both Denpa and Haganai had the same original light novel character designer but the anime design Haganai had wasn't as attractive. I certainly couldn't pinpoint the difference but if I had to guess it was the sparkles. Sales for this series is only average with it floating around 5000~ per volume with just Blu-ray. It's possible for a sequel but Shaft have two golden gooses that they can milk so they might not be willing to spend time on this. If they do it then it really is for the fans.

Full ending of Nise is out

If one has been paying attention then you would know that "Naisho no Hanashi", ClariS's newest single which is also Nisemonogatari's ending is out.
Personally I liked "Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari" a bit more.  It's probably because I felt that song actually was referencing the series while this song could have fit into any other. ClariS themselves are very talented and their singing aren't bad at all. It's just that the song seemed kind of....not related.

Either way I recommend that you buy or download it because like I said the song itself isn't bad.

There are three different versions so if you have a case of the OCD then your wallet is gonna take a hit. I believe all three of them contain the same stuff except for the cover but don't quote me on that.

Anyway, I'm hoping for a different ending for the last episode of Karen Bee because there is a VERY good  reason for Shaft to do that. If you've read the novel then you'll know what I'm talking about.

Oshino Shinobu

If you have watched this week's episode then you would know that it re-introduces the character of Oshino Shinobu into the series. This episode is possibly one of the most important if not THE most important episode of the series as a whole. As you might have noticed already from my banner, Shinobu is my favorite character so this episode plays a great importance to me as well.

For all you anime-only watchers you probably remember her as that blonde loli that appears once in a while during the first season. Since she didn't say anything or did anything of great importance (other than saving Araragi's life at the end of the season) you probably shrugged her off as a background character. Now I don't blame you for thinking that since she really was pretty useless during that period. With that in mind, you are probably thinking about how is such a character important to the series? Well let's just say that we'll be seeing A LOT of her in the future.

SPOILER AHEAD, read with caution

Happy Chinese Year and New Beginning!

I've had a keen interest in writing for a while now but I've never actually done any of the sort other than ones relating to school work. With the start of this blog I want to write more. There really isn't a set topic that I'll focus on so I'll just write about anything that have my attention at the time.

Please don't expect too much from this blog since it really is just me ranting about stuff that interests me.
