If you told me a kungfu serial with robots IN SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE and the story of an everywoman ojou with electric powers were terrible ideas, I’d have hit you so hard I’d have punched out all of your blood

No seriously.

First up is the most ridiculous Gundam show to ever grace the television screen: MOBILE FIGHTER G GUNDAM. Take one measure of Gundam, mix it up with super robots, throw in as much KUNG FOOLERY as you can, and throw that idea to IMAGAWA (who also directed SHIN MAZINGER Z! SHOUGEKI!!!!!!!!!!!!!), and you get… … … …

The Best Gundam Show Ever. (Even surpassing The 08th MS Team! But SUPER ROBOTS OVERRIDE REAL ROBOTS. ALWAYS.) It’s retarded, it’s insane, and furthermore, Hong Kong and Taiwan are probably going to froth at the idea, but WHO CARES. This idea is SOLID GOLD. It’s AMAZING. It’s a lot fresher than most ideas for anime I’ve seen (kungfu robot tournament fightan is still a lot better than a lot of shows, Code Geass notwithstanding since I’ve never watched it).

And I’m not even at the tournament PROPER. Sure, the first few episodes are slow going and they had to stuff in the backstory at the beginning, but after the terrible, terrible exposition, BAM! ROBOT FIGHTS! UNDEAD ROBOT FIGHTS! JAWSOME STUFF HAPPENS. MASTER ASIA IS EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVIL! THE SHUFFLE ALLIANCE DIE JAWSOMELY! THE GUYANA HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANDS!!!

Schwarz Bruder ;_;

And then we come to A CERTAIN SCIENTIFIC RAILGUN. Or in romanji, TO ARU KAGAKU NO CHOUDENJIBOU. (Try saying that like Tesshou Genda. It’s extremely satisfying.)

3 teenaged girls with what could be accurately termed SUPERPOWERS (and one mundane one) experience life in a city of schools, occasionally interrupted by SUPERPOWERED bank robberies and scientific intrigue. The main character gets roped into these events without so much as a thought because she’s basically Nanoha without the magical crap and we replace her beamspam of death with powerful and creative uses of electricity. No kidding.

Some people say it’s crap, but I, for one, enjoyed the first half of the series. Light, consistent storytelling with likeable characters (Kuroko is an unbashed lesbian. Mikoto is a hardworking ‘normal’ student. Ui~hara~n~ and Saten play off each other very well. Most of the side characters are not annoying.) and a solid plot. I can’t believe people call this crap just because it’s JC Staff. They are formally forgiven for not making Tsukihime. And Shana (And I liked Shana😦 ). And Zero No Tsukaima (in retrospect, JC Staff cannot be blamed for crap source material. Save for not making Tsukihime.)

And then we come to THE CLONE WARS. Which should be extremely interesting to watch. Where’s mah clone Railguns.

Also I refuse to use the weeaboo name for this show.

And mini-reviews for the rest of the stuff I managed to watch:

  • Bamboo Blade: The best moe kendo show I have watched. If there were any other moe kendo shows, it would pale in comparison.
  • Sunred Season 2: Go read wah. He tells it better. Sunred is still funny. And keeps itself fresh.
  • PLANETES: It’s GARBAGE COLLECTORS IN SPAAAAAAAAAAAAACE. And it is jawsomely jawsome. Great character-centric storytelling, much better than Haruhi, which shone in technical animation brilliance, but paled in character-centric storytelling.

18 days to THE LEGEND OF KOIZUMI.THIS SHOW WILL BE THE BEST SHOW OF THE SEASON. I GUANTAREE IT.

    I have never considered bamboo blade as a moe show but now that you mentioned it, they are certainly the best.

    I just had to look at this due to the “punch out all of your blood” comment. Ahhh, good times. Well, I’ve only heard of one of these shows and that is Bamboo Blade, which I’d actually kind of written off right away, but I might check it out now. Oh wait, I also seen some of Clone Wars. I was surprisingly not unhappy with it (not huge on Star Wars).
