I’ve watched a lot of anime since I’ve gotten into it. I haven’t watched it for as long as most people who watch anime, but I managed to complete 124 in the relatively short time I’ve been a fan of the medium. I recognize that I’m a bit overly-passionate about it at times, and my sense of pride tends to really overlap with it as well, which can make me a bit of an insufferable prick in particular on the topic.
Of course, just because I’m a bit over-zealous doesn’t mean I don’t recognize the fact that being new to something creates a bit of a new car smell effect – with time, the wonder and idealization of it all is replaced with brevity and a bit of a slog. When I first started getting into anime, everything was awesome and great and new, and I wonder if some of what I watched back then would hold up had I watched it all this time later – there’s no doubt in my mind I would’ve loved Haganai regardless of when I watched it, but what about something like Umishou? My very first anime, which in of itself was probably nothing special, but it opened up this whole medium to me. It felt like there was a new sun poking its head up over the horizon, so naturally I cling onto the memories I have watching it rather dearly.
Of course, things that feel the same way tend to become further and further spread apart the more anime I complete – the new car smell has worn off, and I’m a bit more level-headed now. It’s not a whole new world anymore, and it really just makes anime a bit of a search sometimes for something that can capture the magic of when I started last year. Magipoka made me feel a special way, something I probably haven’t felt since Love Live – I really, really, really, reeeaaaaaaaaaaally
want to fuck the vampire.
Like, I’m not kidding. Holy shit, Pachira is undoubtedly the sexiest non-loli character I’ve encountered. My god.
my whole goal of all of that was to try to seem deeply touched by it and then just switch it with that i really want to boink a character
is of into jokings, comrade, haha
Err…but anyway, I found it to be one of the funniest anime I’ve watched in a long time, though, and I think it’s a goddamn shame it doesn’t get more attention. It’s got cute girls, sexy girls, cute girls again, and this stupidly great approach to being a waifu comedy that I really think is just ideal for this kind of anime. I can’t recall the last time an anime has made me geniunely laugh as much as this one did unless I go back to Haganai.
Thanks to Moog for the secret santa gift, ya twat. Best comedy I’ve seen in a while, and I doubt I ever would’ve found out about it had it not been for your gift thingy.
Now I need to order the Max Factory Pachira PVC that I can undress. It’s a necessity for living.
