I’m losing my momentum here… but I will faithfully complete my task! Which is to blog the first 3 episodes of 10 fall series. I haven’t even watched Letter Bee yet. When I saw the special from last year, I wasn’t too excited. But we shall see. Anyway, onto the post!
I wasn’t very good keeping up posts during the spring and summer, but I did mention here and there how much I was enjoying Natsu no Arashi and how underrated I thought it was. Definitely underrated. I enjoyed every minute of it, even the stupid first episode. Though yes, Shinbo + SHAFT can equal REPETITIVE. God. Watching Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei is like a chore now. But I liked their style for this one, and the music was so distinct and catchy. I really ended up missing Natsu no Arashi during the summer. Which meant I was really happy to find out it would be continued! This was originally the only show I was looking forward to this Season.
On the actual episode: It’s the same old Natsu no Arashi! I feel like there was a bit more fanservice though. Hopefully they’ll tone it down, since I’m not one of the fans that particular service is directed at… This wasn’t actually that bad. Hoping the same pattern will follow; you know, crappy first and last episode but lots of good stuff in the middle?
On the series potential: I feel like this’ll just continue to get better like the first season; and it seems to be keeping the same atmosphere – which to me is a good thing. But goddd, make me miss summer even more, will ya?
I don’t think I’ll get tired of this even if they decide to be really uber-SZS-repetitive, since I already like it. Of course that would be disappointing though. Let’s hope there’s more from Akanishi Jin where the first season came from and that Shinbo sticks to the good stuff and doesn’t try to OVER-over-embellish. A little over-embellishment is only to be expected =)
On a side note, Darker than BLACK! No one told me I would like it so much!?!?! I don’t think I’ll finish the first season in time to post the episode one of the new season right away, but as soon as I finish I’ll definitely do it. It’s a given that I’m DLing season 2. If Crunchyroll steals it, I’ll fucking hack them. Not that I’m enough of a computer nerd to do that.
