239th G-View: Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS

Featured Image -- 271

LMAO I can’t wait for this to pretty much become my favorite season (since I haven’t watched the first two, just the movies which I’ve said before I absolutely LOVE) when I watch it (until Vivid finishes though we’ll see about that lel) just because of the fact that I’ll probably love all the things that make it so ‘controversial’. It’s kinda nice to have a balance of one-dimensional antagonists and three dimensional ones. It’s also nice to see people in the TSAB get screentime even if in the end I will have to admit the ‘large cast syndrome’ may drag down the show’s quality a bit (though I certainly hope I’ll be surprised).

That being said, definitely looking forward to watching it. And the legendary Takamachi family and Vivio moments. HNNNNNNNNNNNNG! ❤

Also BRING ON THE VIVID. I mean I might miss the premiere since I want to finish StrikerS first (and I’m not sure how this week is gonna go considering college and my procrastination tendencies and rushing to finish/marathon a show that I will hopefully love), but meh. We’ll see.

Great writeup as always, G! NanoFate FTW!

238th G-View: Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha: The Movie 2nd A’s

As a newcomer to the Nanoha franchise who still has yet to watch the TV series and only watched the first two movies, I absolutely loved this film. I gave it a solid 10/10 and found no flaws with it.

The yuri and the Hayate/Reinforce/Wolkenritter story were flawless, as was the action and animation. I still rewatch some clips from time to time just to revel in how badass and perfect a magical girl Nanoha Takamachi truly is. I was moved to tears in the climax and the end of the movie. And overall, I enjoyed pretty much every minute of it. Like, I don’t know what else to say.

Now this may change when I finally watch the second season (which likely won’t happen for awhile since I need to go back and watch the first series and rewatch the movies after watching StrikerS/while Vivid is airing/when I have the time. But usually when a movie like this leaves THAT much of an impression on me, that opinion isn’t going to change very fast.

And its really awesome how the compilation films are part of the StrikerS continuity. For documentaries about Nanoha and Fate’s legacy on Mid-Childa by showcasing everything they did prior to becoming TSAB elite, that’s so meta it hurts. It’s fucking awesome.

But yeah, great review otherwise. NanoFate is definitely one of my favorite ships out there.

240th G-View: Kantai Collection -KanColle-

Featured Image -- 252

Funny that you should mention Strike Witches as I watched the first season this week and absolutely loved it.

KanColle was hit or miss for me, though I haven’t finished it yet. I can’t explain what it is about it I don’t really like, but I think its just too many characters (some I don’t care about at all), some drama that could be executed a lot better and yeah…the CGI isn’t too jarring but its still irksome to me. I do love my Akaga and NagaMutsu though. And the music for the series is also quite good.

I still have three episodes left, but I can’t love this show like you did. Strike Witches was definitely a more solid watch. But that’s just me personally.

Familiar concept of combining historical vehicles/crafts/figures of war with cute and sexy girls once more grace our monitors or Japanese TV screens in the latest entry of the concept known as Kantai Collection, aka KanColle. Keep in mind this review will only cover the anime adaptation.

This show looks excellent. I really can’t wait to watch it.

The Yuri Nation

Anime about making is nothing new but the fact they exist is much appreciated. The ones I have seen are short though, such as Animation Runner Kuromi. This is the first lengthy one I have seen covering this subject. Is it any good? Let us find out as we take a look at SHIROBAKO.
