30 Day Anime Challenge Day 8: Favorite Anime Artwork/Directing (56k Warning)

Well, thank God for the saying “A picture is worth a thousands words” because I suck at describing visuals.  And I want to finish editing the grammar errors of my next post that is coming very soon so I’m going to leave you guys with some pretty anime pictures.

Enjoy!

I recommend that you listen to this classic vaporwave song to set the mood: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cU8HrO7XuiE

If you can’t tell I love hand drawn cel animation.  And I’m also aesthetic trash.

30 Day Anime Challenge Day 1 – Anime I Want to Watch

Well, I did say I’ll return to writing about anime soon.  I’m always good on my word (okay I’m lying about that part). From seeing blogger Karandi’s post, I figure that I’ll do the 30 Day Anime Callenge as well!  I have nothing better to write about for the next 30 days (outside my planned posts) so why not!

Day 1 – “Anime I Want to Watch” (boy where do I start?)

Bubblegum Crisis

Bubblegum Crisis was recommended to me by a friend recently. I’ve heard of this legendary cyberpunk OVA  series by studios Youmex, AIC, and Artmix during my early anime viewership days, but I never had any means of watching it up until my adult years.  While I’m not super deep into 80s and 90s cyberpunk anime, I do love the a e s t h e t i c visuals of that era (there’s something about cel animation man it’s so beautiful).  Four kick ass women mercenaries in exoskeleton suits destroying robots and doing whatever kickass women do in 2032 Japan?
Yes please.

This makes me wanna get stoned, listen to vaporwave, and be a s a d b o y.

Nisemonogatari.

Bakemonogatari was a visual and story masterpiece. Can’t believe I slept on  the show for seven years.  So glad my homeboy got me hip to this show and it’s characters, including best girl Hanekawa (and second best Hitagi). So why I’ve been sleeping on the second animation adaption? I do not know (okay I know it’s because I’m lazy).  But I do know that Akiyuki Shinbo is back as chief director with Nisemonogatari. That’s great!  You know why? We get his outlandish directing style that we all know and love from him.  Yay Shinboism!

My reaction to this scene is likewise.

I’m going to have some E&J for the infamous Toothbrush scene on standby.  I have yet to see the scene in full, but I heard it’s quite…interesting. Cringe-inducing creepy incestuous fanservice interesting.   Alcohol is needed for that shit.

The anime adaption of the third volume, Owarimonogatari, is coming soon.  I best knock out Nisemonogatari and the moves out as soon as possible before that drops this Summer 2017 season.

How to ruin your chance of getting a date.

I’m a shitty anime fan.  I’ve been lacking on the recent anime game. I’m screwing myself over with my laziness by not to investing the time on watching new shows.   If I’m gonna be about this anime blogger life, that means I best expand on the anime I watch.   Here are two shows I’m eyeing from the upcoming season!

Gamers!

Looks promising, but I’m not holding my breath on another light novel anime adaption doing well or at the very least blow me away.   I do not know much about studio “Pine Jam”, so that will be something on the field of  first impressions. From what I’ve researched, it’s like a group of high schoolers forming a video game club  with fellow other gaming otaku.  Getting some Genshiken vibes here, but I’m doubtful it’ll go heavy with the gaming nerd culture like the Genshiken manga and anime series.

Hajimete no Gal

84417l

I’m going to be completely real here.  Up until three minutes into writing this paragraph, I’ve never heard of Hajimete no Gal (First Time Girl) and its My Anime List (MAL) synopsis left much to be desire in explaining what’s up with the show (as most MAL synopsis are).  I took it upon myself to researching the upcoming anime by studio NAZ (hey! That sounds like Nas the rapper.  That must be a great sign!)

After completing my quick lackluster research, I found that Hajimete no Gal is  based off  Shonen Ace’s  romantic comedy manga of the same name by Meguru Ueno. Main character Junichi  is pressured by his homeboys to seek out a girlfriend and lose his virginity to her  during his first year of high school.  He encounters the alluring gyaru Yukana, who shames him for looking at a porn magazine openly in school.  Junichi decides to make it his mission to confess his feelings towards Yukana and get with her.

To his surprise, Yukana is incredibly sexually forward, teasing him about how much he wants to sleep with her by flashing her panties and revealing her cleavage towards the kid.  From my first impression off two chapters, the art is amazing and the story is funny enough to catch my attention.

I have high hopes for the adaptation!
There are my anime I want to see soon! With that, the day 1 challenge is completed! Onwards to day 2!

Here’s the list!  Enjoy! 30-day-anime-challenge-e1495940169705
