[talk] Anime Fall 2010 season

Durf, I haven't posted about anime other than Inazuma Eleven in a long time, so here are my two cents on the new stuff I've been watching in the season:

Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge - The usual good crack. XD
Bakuman - I enjoyed how much I read out of the manga and am glad to see JC Staff animating it. It's pretty much what I imagined it to be thus far even though I was a bit attached to Fukuyama Jun and Tachibana Shinnosuke from the vomic cast. Abe Atsushi and Hino Satoshi are probably even better fits though XD;
The World Only God Knows (Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai) - THIS was the dark horse for me, I'm enjoying this a lot more than I would have ever assumed from... not looking up a bit of what it was about before watching. I thought it'd be full of fanservice for otaku guys after halfway through an ep, but Shimono Hiro actually gets a LOT of good action in this series. This might be one of the only new shows I'll enjoy for its full run.
Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai - After 4 episodes, the novelty has worn off already, but I'll probably be able to finish it like I did for Nyan-koi for Youkyan's voice and the general otaku-ism. Runs in the background.
Pokemon Best Wishes! - I lol'ed at some of the "old school" themes they went back to, particularly Team Rocket trying to be srs badass again (and still failing), Satoshi doing the stupidest things ever and reviving the fact that he's still fucking 10 years old after more than 10 years have passed. ...I was hoping for Dent's personality to be more interesting because it's Mamo, but eh. And I really wasn't expecting a revolutionary turn on actual plot involvement, but... yeah it's the same old. More disappointment, but I'll probably still let it run in the background as long as Mamo sticks around.
Shinrei Tantei Yakumo - I was actually... RELATIVELY impressed with bee train's pacing on the first ep, and then it kind of went back down a level from the next ep onwards. XD; Bah bee train. Seeing as it's only a short series and I'm enjoying the guest seiyuu appearances along with a steady OnoD, I'll probably be able to finish it off in the background.
Star Driver: Kagayaki no Takuto - YAWN and occasional eyebrow-raising. I go "heh" for like 3 seconds at the fan reaction to this series and then move on. It's all they're going for. >____>; BONES had it better with stuff like Ouran when it comes to utilizing Mamo hotness. TwT; Anyway this is running in the background too.
Tegami Bachi Reverse - Nice continuation of the first season. This series is just nice in general. XD~ Even though Lag cries too much, it's not the obnoxious type of crying at all. TwT;
Togainu no Chi - Waii Nitro+CHiRAL \o/ Have to admit I haven't played the game since the story is REALLY not my type (I prefer the fluffy-dark fantasy stuff Lamento is set in), but having played Lamento I can feel the aura the series gives off. XD; And the cast \o/ Now if only the animation weren't so cruddy in most places. But it's better than nothing at least. XD I'd still be happier to see Lamento animated of course though.
Yosuga no Sora - LOL don't ask how I can stand watching this series. It's terrible. It's just running in the background. If it's this versus God Knows for Hiro-tan, I'd pick God Knows over this any day, but this just makes me lol at how active he is this season.

Stuff I need to catch up on, or finish and move out (I've watched some and left off somewhere):
Battle Spirits
Sengoku Basara Two
Nurarihyon no Mago (the pace is boring me to death but the seiyuu tempt at me so)
Heartcatch Precure!
Uragiri wa Boku no Namae wo Shitteiru (I have 3 eps left to go, haha)
Hakuouki (will probably play the game before going further into the anime)

Yes it looks like a lot, but almost all of it just runs in the back while I'm doing other stuff, really. Unless the animation is totalllly exceptional, I don't have even have my eyes on the screen that often. I tend to not even remember character names, just the seiyuu who play them.

On the other hand I do enjoy staring and staring again at Inazuma Eleven XD;;; Screenshot gallery has hit 13 pages~
And slowly adding the purrrrty 2011 calendar images to the layout. Piecing together scans and cleaning takes such a long time orz
