Cards, JoJo’s and Boredom…
Here’s the first batch of my initial episode 1 impressions of anime in Spring 2014. I’ll be putting these up 3-by-3 as I watch them.
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders
I absolutely love JoJo as a series and it’s a delight to see it back at where I first found it, the third part. The first episode introduced us to Jotaro, stands and the basic premise of Dio’s return. It was absolutely wonderful, David Production has really managed to hit the nail on the head with their presentation of the series. It’s just exquisite. Watch it, watch it right now.

Selector Infected WIXOSS
I love a good cardgame anime, and WIXOSS seems to be the next big thing in that subgenre. Taking a bit more of a darker route with its presentation and storytelling will either make or break this show in the end, but for this first episode it worked like a charm. Great writing, gorgeous background art and splendid music. I want more.

Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou
This was ultra boring. Kawaisou follows the highschool boy Usa who wants to find an intelligent girlfriend and falls in love with a short-hair girl named Ritsu at first sight. He then find out that he actually lives with her, and a larger cast of colourful characters, in the Kawai dorms. Premise is fine and the character designs are straight up my alley, but Kawaisou is just really boring.
