2014 Summer Anime Watchlist


We’re coming close to the end of June and it’s time for another season of anime – 2014 Summer. Thanks to Zana at Neregate for the season’s chart.

When I took a glance through the chart, I wasn’t expecting much titles that would grab my attention based on their titles and preview images. Until I took some time and watched their PVs, I’m kind of hooked to some of them. Anyway, read on for my watchlist for the coming season.

First Impression: Nisekoi



Just completed 2 episodes of this series, it’s been quite some time since my last romance comedy.

Thought the animation is done by SHAFT, but to my surprise, they’re holding back at the artwork and animation. Well not in a bad way, just it doesn’t feel like the usual SHAFT.

Anyway, my first impression on Nisekoi is good and hope the following episodes are as good as it promised.

First Impression: Kill la Kill

KILL la KILL - 01

From the creators of “Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann” and “Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt”, what else you can’t expect of?

This is an anime that packs energy, speed as well as randomness. Everything is constantly moving and you don’t even have a chance to catch a breath. And…. That’s the style that makes it different from the rest.

I thought I no longer have the chance to watch any series that could live up to Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, I guess the wait is over.
