[Info] New animation by Kyoto Animation - 'Free!'

So, it was not a fantasy series that Kyoto is doing next. I laughed so hard that this was NOT a troll;


Bi-shonen Swimming animation.

Original story is actually from the novel that got an award from the 2nd Kyoto Animation award - "High Speed". So, I'm guessing this is a way that Kyoto will create their original series I guess.

Casting:
Shimajaki Nobunaga
Suzuki Tatsuhisa
Miyano Mamoru
Yonaga Tsubasa
Hirakawa Daisuke

...Other than Miyano, no idea who they are. I guess this is Kyoto being Kyoto again.

Anyway, this is MUST WATCH. So excited kyoto showing their hidden card now.

[KamiNomi] Chapter 224: The World God Only Knows...

This chapter... was god damn amazing. One of the best chapters I've seen in KamiNomi for a long time.

I always had a feeling that there would be some kind of meaning to the title, 'The World God Only Knows', and it is finally explained in this chapter. Fuckin legendary.

I thought series was kinda getting loosen after vintage arc and also thought time travel arc is kinda out of place. But, damn Wakaki-sensei. You are pure genius.

Ranting: Sumary of this anime season.

The best/most successful title of the season $$$ = Shingeki no Kyojin VS Suisei no Gargantia

Moe title of the season :3 = Oreimo new season VS Nyaruko W

God title of the season = Girls Panzer

Mind-fuck = Aku no Hana 

Pretty much best season of the year. So many things to watch

[Review] Shingeki no Kyojin - You call this 1st episode.

Shingeki no Kyojin aka. Attack of the Titans - possibly one of the biggest hit manga selling over 10 million. Its anime adaptation? I honestly didn't expect much especially when I found out the director Tetsurou Araki (Who did the worst animation of the year, Guilty Crown) and Production IG (Well, it is actually WIT-Studio - 6th branch of IG which recently got separated) is doing the series.

...Well, I can say that episode had so many good stuffs in it, I feel that this can become the animation of the year 2013. First impression of this series was THAT good.

When I watch anime, 1st thing I care about is animation/sakuga itself. It is actually guaranteed that Production IG will have high production value, but there were so many small, but great features that made its quality even higher. Rough and sharp sketch of characters + use of CG built up unbreakable tension. I couldn't breathe a single bit by the end of the episode - which had flawless direction that shows great amount of despair that characters are facing, directly to the viewers. That CG blood, wow. One of the best direction I've seen for a long time.

This episode was definitely BETTER than manga. It had full use of advantage that anime has and manga doesn't, such as colour usage and background detail. Regardless of what comes up during the series, this 1st episode sure had its impact.

PS. Also, tat BGM.
