Spice and Wolf (TV, 2008)

Overview

The way that I figure it, you can divide every season of anime into three sets of series. There's the Generics - the ones that are there every season, in some form. The series that are the same story, with a different name, in other words. Then there's the Brand Names - the series that make the season. Often these are sequels, or else eroge conversions, but they share a common trait with the Generics in that it's still stuff that you've seen before. Now, needless to say, I'm after the third group, the Wild Ideas... These are the series that try a really new spin on something. They might be based on a manga, or eroge - but not the sort of 'seen it before' material shared by the first two groups. It's hard to do, and be successful - the sad thing is, it seems like most viewers want either the Generics, or the Brand Names... In short, they want stuff that they're comfortable with. Get to the point, JC, I can hear you saying. Alright - it's this season's Wild Idea that I'm taking a look at today, Spice and Wolf.

H2O ~Footprints in the Sand~ (TV, 2008)

Overview

Geeze... short season, wasn't it? Aside from Persona and one or two others, everything for the Winter 2008 season was a short thirteen episodes, and I'm left feeling a bit unfulfilled, honestly. But, alright, since it looks like I haven't got much choice, I suppose that I'd better take a look at a couple of the shows that just finished wrapping up. First up on my list is a little gem called H2O ~Footprints in the Sand~. Now, before I go much farther, I should mention that there's something about H2O that will either utterly turn you off, or draw you in like moth to flame. Part of the opening includes scenes of one of the main characters - a young girl - getting the tar beaten out of her by a pair of boys. It's not an accident - and not a case of metaphor. Stick with me here, I'm going to delve into it a bit shortly.

ef - a tale of memories (TV, 2007)

Overview

I'm trying something a little bit new this season, that being waiting longer before doing my review. That's as much because my time is just murdered between school and work as it is because last season half of my reviews need to be redone (still) because of abrupt changes in quality, storyline, or just plain sanity. So, with that in mind, I've decided to go after ef - a tale of memories for this review - and yes, that is correctly capitalized. The fall/winter season is always loaded with romance stories and eroge conversions, and this season has been no exception. ef stands out from the crowd, though, because of its extremely unconventional storytelling, and abstract animation style. Now, as I said, I decided that I was going to wait a bit longer to do the reviews, and that's a good thing... see, I started writing this review on episode 8, and if I'd have finished it, I'd have had to completely re-write it, heh.

Myself; Yourself (TV, 2007)

Overview

This is the story of a girl... err, wait, sorry, that's a song, isn't it? But actually, it's not so far off from what I'm reviewing today, as you'll see in a few moments. The Fall/Winter season this year hit like a masonry full of bricks, and I found myself in a somewhat rare situation: Not only were there a lot of series that I was interested in, there were so many that I could barely keep up. Traditionally, the fall/winter season is loaded more with romance genre series - that's not to say that action can't be found, as Dragonaut and Night Wizard are proving, mind you. This year's offering included not one, but five exceptional romance series, and every damn one of them is proving good enough to require waiting until the series wraps just to ensure I don't miss anything. The first of those, Myself; Yourself, finished its run in my player not ten minutes ago, and I don't mind admitting that I'm sitting here with the same sort of warm fuzzies that Ah My Goddess TV left me with... Damn, this is going to be a long review season...

Karin (TV, 2006)

Overview

What do you get when you turn a vampire inside out? Apparently, you get Karin, a series about a young girl named Maaka Karin and her family... of vampires. If not for one minor problem, that'd be perfectly appropriate, as Karin herself is a vampire. Well, sorta. You see, Karin is rather unique among her kind. Rather than being unable to produce blood for herself, she produces far too much, and so when she goes out for a bite, it's to inject her excess blood into somebody else. It's either that, or getting enough of a nose bleed to paint the walls. Aside from that, she's just a normal, growing vampire girl... well, not really.

Shuffle! (TV, 2005)

Overview

S'ok, everybody knows that any harem anime has to have three basic ingredients, right? You have your male protagonist, the girls - at least three, never more than seven - and some good, old fashioned Strange Events to round it all out. So, let me do a little check list here - Rin, male protagonist... check. Kaede, Nerine, Lisianthus, Asa, and Primula, girls in love with Rin... check. Next door neighbors that just happen to be gods/demons? Check. Alright, that's everything that Shuffle! needs to be your standard harem anime, complete with some great nude scenes from a set of excellent babes to top off the mix. Here's the problem: Shuffle! is a tale of two halves, and while the opening is very much a standard Harem anime, the second half of the series absolutely blows the top off the pressure cooker and ditches any pretense at being a standard Harem.

Itsudatte My Santa (OVA, 2005)

Overview

I suppose that I should have known not to expect much when I found out the translated name of Itsudatte My Santa - 'Always My Santa'. Come to think of it, I probably should have realized that the moment I saw the word 'Santa' in the title. But for some foolish reason, it never quite registered in the back of my mind what I was in for, as I patiently waited for the fansubbed two OVA series to download. It might have been that I'd had a long day when I finally sat down to watch it, or it might have been some long buried reflex watch response to anything related to Santa Claus left behind from when I was a kid. Whatever it was, I found myself watching this OVA, and wincing almost the entire way through it.

Onegai Teacher (TV, 2002)

Overview

I wasn't going to check this series out, actually, as the high school drama usually isn't my sort of thing. None the less, after much cajoling on the part of K`thardin, I decided to pick it up - after all, who can resist a cute babe with glasses and red hair? Besides which, by the time that I finally took the plunge, I'd begun to grow curious about the main character, who seemed very much to have split personality disorder, from all the artwork I'd seen of her. One, the cool, cute, and composed school teacher, the other, the sexy, and decidedly hot babe that traipsed about in a silk teddy that I could only describe as... skimpy. In any case, locating the series wasn't very hard, and very soon I was enjoying my first meeting with Mizuho Kazami.
