GOOD! Despite me being rather busy with work and events, the animes i managed to catch this season still exceeds the numbers i would usually watch, which is about 3. Not counting the animes from the previous seasons like Sword Art Online, Muv Luv Alternative or Space Brothers.
So what are the really good ones? Let’s see, off hand, I have;
It’s one of the Noitamina time slot anime and with it usually comes high quality and good story. And Psycho Pass does not disappoint, after it is made by Production I.G with the good looking, clean and detailed art style and it’s take on the future of humanity. It’s storyline however presented quite a gloomy future, in my opinion. One that should have been regarded as a paradise where crime rates are low and everyone knows what they are suppose to do.
But in such a world, are dreams and the will of man dead? Replaced by the machinery created by man to monitor and single out those tainted by criminal thoughts. Everything is planned out by the machines, from your breakfast to your aspirations. Well to make things better… they did give you some choices… some.
So is human will dead in this supposed paradise? Well it’s a very deep question and Psycho Pass is trying to find out through the live of fresh inspector Akane Tsunemori and her enforcer partner, Shinya Kogami, why? Afterall, Akane is one of the privileged few to be granted more choices than the others but still have some hidden will within. Will her “will” be hammered flat like the rest of society as she enters a Job with one of the most contact with the Sybil system, the machinery that determines everything.
Chūnibyō Demo Koi ga Shitai!
Definitely one of the smash hit this season, maybe even this year. From Kyoto Animation, there is no need for me to mention the animation quality and it’s story selection. They are all just too good, perhaps not awesome like the first episode of Little Buster that Kyoani didn’t make but still a very respectable piece of work.
Storywise, it’s interesting, so much so that it kind of resonates with me reminding me of my younger days, going about visualizing how I saved the world, how ambushes made me late for school, and how going through certain doors actually like to another world another possibility… Watched too much Sliders when I was young.
Eitherway the story revolves around this very cute couple, the Wicked Eyes Rikka and Dark Flame Master Yuta, demonstrating how a person’s imagination has no bound and hallucination don’t necessarily needs to be drug induced…
Not forgetting to mention it has all the makings of a hit anime, cute girls, good art, good story, fighting scenes and sci-fi! So if you haven’t really caught this, you should really give it a try.
