sickVisionz (Level 24)

I'm realizing that I have NO CLUE about what's airing in Winter 2014 and no idea what to watch.

Earlier this year I blogged about shows that I was watching from the current anime season.  Now that I've finished most of them, here's my final thoughts on them.
 
Angel Beats 
   A nice mix of elements.
  A nice mix of elements.
This was a show that I always enjoyed, but for some reason I'd put off watching for like 3 weeks at a time.  I'm like that sometimes and I'm not sure why.  Anyways, I had a blast with it.  It looked pretty and the combination of action, humor, technobabble and sob story was nice.
  

Bleach 
 Old faithful

Bleach is still like comfort food for me.  I can't say that I really enjoyed more than 1 or 2 episodes this season but I still tune in like clockwork every week.
 
 
House of Five Leaves 
I wish it would go on for years

I really enjoyed this one.  It's a slow burn type of show that reminds me of Erin with it's pacing.  Like Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, I could watch 50+ episodes of the gang getting into random adventures and I think it'd be a blast.  However, I'm pretty sure that one season is all we'll ever get. 
  

The Tatami Galaxy 
Probably the most serious yet utterly ridiculous and goofy show I've seen.

I let this one build up in my Hulu queue.  It's a show that I always enjoyed watching but for some reason I never really wanted to watch it.  I think I'm the mood to watch a couple of them today though.
  

Rainbow

When this came on Hulu I pretty much fell off of it.  I keep telling myself I'll catch up on the episodes, but I haven't.  Realistically I probably never will.  It's a shame though.  I was legitimately enjoying every episode that I saw.
  

Kaichou wa Maid-Sama 
 The nicest Ice Queen ever
 The nicest Ice Queen ever
Still on going and I'm still really enjoying it.  I don't usually root for the guy in shows like this, but she's such an Ice Queen toward Usui that I always hope the series is gonna end with him banging her out.   
 
 
Senkou no Night Raid 
Out of sight, out of mind. 
Out of sight, out of mind. 
Like Rainbow and Tatami, I really loved every episode I saw but I never actually wanted to watch it.  When the release schedule slowed up I pretty much forgot about it and I doubt i'll ever go back to it.
  
 

B Gata H Kei 
 Either the tamest raunchy show ever or the raunchiest tame show ever.

This some how managed to be way tamer than I expected but a lot raunchier than I expected.  I went in expecting Kanokon levels of ecchi but it's not really like that at all.  I had a blast with it though.  Really funny.
  

Kiss x Sis 
 WTF is up with urine fetishes?

I liked this up to a point and I finished it, but I really didn't understand all of the urine fantasies towards the end.  That was pretty stomach turning for me. 
 

 
Naruto Shippuuden

Still watching and enjoying Naruto.

 
 
One Piece 
 Not for me.
 Not for me.
At 122 episodes I feel like I've given this show a fair shot.  It's not for me.  It doesn't really deliver on anything I want from a never ending shounen-action series.
 
 
 
FullMetal Alchemist: Brotherhood 
Good

I'm two episodes away from finishing this and still enjoying it, although it's similar to Angel Beats where I like the episodes but I'll go up to a month without watching it. 

 
Dragon Ball Kai 
Yes, this show rocks.

I look forward to this every week.  I think Bleach could learn a lot from this on how to do story-less never ending anime. 
 
 

 
Katanagatari 
Good mix of comedy, action and drama.

I love this one whenever it comes out.  I think maybe two or 3 episodes came out since the last blog I wrote.  I wish it was twice a month, but it's really good so I'm ok with it.

 #1 for the season

Hands down, this is my favorite show that debuted this season.  I pray that they do more seasons.
