Favorite Anime 2014Friday, December 26, 2014
Hello, lovelies~ It's the day after Christmas. Did you enjoy your Christmas yesterday? Got a lot of presents maybe? I didn't get presents, but I gave lots, yeay~ Anyway, since the year is coming to an end, I wanted to post my favorite anime of 2014. Here they are.
Oh, they're not in order of favorite, just random.
Wake Up, Girls!
A bunch of girls trying to reach fame by joining in an idol group. It gives a rough picture on how idols make their way to the top, although maybe it's not like that in reality. I don't know.
Gin no Saji 2nd Season
It's all about livestock, crops and how to manage all of it. I watched the first season, so naturally, I like the easy going, no stress plot.
Mikakunin de Shinkoukei
Roughly translated to "Engaged to the Unidentified". Yep, 'unidentified' as in UFOs and stuff. An ordinary girl got engaged to a boy, who turned out to be more than just human. It's funny, stress-free, but can be a little draggy sometimes. Still enjoyable, though.
I'm not usually into plot-heavy anime, but put in a god of calamity in the mix and you got me hooked. It's a well balance of fun and serious as the god of calamity is now a god of I'll-do-anything-for-5-yen, lol.
A nichijou type anime that leans towards romance-comedy. It sure is hard falling in love with someone, especially if that someone can only remember you for a week. Yup, the heroine's memories got deleted every Monday, leaving the hero puzzled on how to make her remember him every week. Sweet and memorable.
Gochuumon wa Usagi desu ka?
One of my favorite anime to watch if I want to watch something cute with a light plot. It's just filled with cute girls working at different cafes in that town. Total eye candy.
Another funny anime with a survivor game theme. It gives off the same vibe as the last season's Stella Women's Academy, High School Division Class C3 (Shiikyuubu) , minus the drama.
Get your naruko ready and enter the world of yosakoi! The OP is fun and catchy, I find myself humming to it all day when it was still airing. It is about a group of girls starting their own yosakoi club at school.
Ao Haru Ride
This anime brings me back to the first time I like someone. It's just such a sweet anime that kinda reminds me of Kimi ni Todoke, but with a faster pace. The chemistry between them is just cute and sweet and ... It just brings me back to my high school days! Being stupid, falling in love and the likes~
Two close friends who shares everything, including kisses. This is what I want to see from Hidamari Sketch and Yuru Yuri. Embrace it, lol.
The opposite of Sakura Trick. Just watch it. This is one of the sweetest, most heart warming BL I've ever watched. ^_^
Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun
A girl who meets with her crush, who turned out to be the author of her favorite manga. He uses her and his friends as manga material as he is partially clueless about romance and the likes.
Drama around the workplace that is the manga store. It's a laid back anime with light story, just the anime I watch to feel less stressed at the end of the day.
Amagi Brilliant Park
A boy is offered a job at the worst amusement park ever, but there is more behind it than meets the eye. With eye pleasing graphics, this may just be one of my favorite anime of the year. Moffle-san is cute and adorable!
The heroine likes to eat instant ramen (like me!). Aside from that, she called a fox spirit, who turned out to haunt her. By haunt, I mean take care of her in her daily life. When he transformed into a fox, it is sooooooo cute and fluffy!
Originally from a manga in the late 80s, it tells a story of a boy who got a parasyte into his body. However, he managed to block it from taking over his brain, making him live peacefully with the parasyte that is now his right hand. Filled with action and drama, I find it hard to dislike this anime.
Zankyou no Terror
Again, not usually a fan of heavy plot animes, but this one starts me off right. It gives off puzzles during the first three to four episodes that makes me think along. One of the songs called is by Yoko Kano (feat pop etc) where they ride the bike into the dark of night. Love it!
I watched other anime, but those I dropped didn't make it into this list. A few are SOUL EATER NOT, Nisekoi, Tokyo Ghoul, etc. Oh, I am in no way an expert on anime, I just enjoyed watching them. I don't know the seiyuu or writers, just pure enjoyment. :)
