Fansubbed by Shinsen.

A while ago, I saw this go by on my favorite torrent tracker site. I'm not an incredibly huge fan of Shinsen, but I will admit that they tend to sub shows I like. I clicked over to the Shinsen site to see what their new show was about. I found a warning that they'd only released this because they'd done the scripts, and they'd only done the scripts to see how bad it really was. The release post also mentioned that we were under no obligation to download it just because Shinsen had released it.


So, I downloaded it.

And then I watched it. I'm glad I only downloaded one episode, because I feel bad about deleting anime without watching it. All I can say is, "God, that show sucked." I didn't see anything worthwhile about it - there wasn't even a sense of the famous so-bad-it's-good. Everything sucked. The character designs sucked. The mecha designs sucked harder. Everything drawn on cel was inconsistent. I couldn't follow the plot, possibly because there was none. Everything seemed to revolve around mecha pilots fighting other mecha, all while carrying on some half-assed flirting with each other. The voice acting sucked. Characterization sucked.

I can't even call this a fanservice show, because there was none. I mean, lots of girls in short skirts and clinging clothes, but no actual fanservice. I just want my twenty minutes back.

In other news, I've found that I don't have the stamina to blog individual episodes. To those who do, I salute you. I'm going to go back to series reviews.

Anyway, here is my up-to-date list of the stuff I watched (or am watching) this season:

-Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto - thumbs up!
-Bartender - thumbs up
-Ghost Hunt - thumbs up
-Hataraki Man - thumbs up
-Kanon - thumbs (reluctantly) down
-Pumpkin Scissors - I'm very far behind on this one, but thumbs appear to be up
-Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge - thumbs up quite happily!
-Giniro no Olynssis - I cut off my thumbs in order to have something to do to alleviate the boredom. Typing is now very hard.
