I've been out of school for about 2 months now (thank god, that semester was stressful) and I've had a lot of time to catch up on TV shows and anime I've heard a lot about. So I decided to write about it. I'll be updating this post as I go along this summer.
1. Code Geass
A friend of mine suggested this anime. It's sort of like a mix of Gundam and Death Note, so if you liked those, you'll probably enjoy Code Geass. It has a lot of violence and a lot of plot twists that I never saw coming. I was hooked and watched the whole series (about 50 episodes) in one week. I thought the series was very good, although it was a bit soul-crushing and heartbreaking with character deaths.
2. Star Trek: The Next Generation
How do I sum up an entire series like this in just one paragraph? It took me about a month to get through this one, watching a few episodes a day. There's seven seasons and four movies, so if you choose to watch some, you have a lot to choose from. I'm not a big fan of how some of the characters were developed, but there was otherwise a lot to love about TNG: the Borg, Jean-Luc Picard, Data, Worf, people getting laid, and lots of cheesy space battles.
Very enjoyable for the acting, and the movies aren't too bad either. I think the best movie was First Contact.
3. Valkyria Chronicles
Oh boy, this is a good one. A friend of mine streamed his playthrough of Valkyria Chronicles for PS3 on his channel with commentary in March, and that pretty much carried my soul for that month. It's a fun game, and the characters were all memorable, even the minor ones in Squad 7. I have to say, it's the best game I have ever seen but never got the chance to play myself. If you have a PS3, this is an exclusive you need to pick up. (Marina is the best sniper, just saying)
I also got a chance to check out the anime based on the game, which is pretty much the same story but carried out in 26 episodes. It shares the same art style as the game, which I thought was cool.
I could go on all day about how cool I think Valkyria Chronicles is. I haven't seen the sequels but the first game is a classic.
4. Outlaw Star
I caught a few episodes of Outlaw Star on Toonami as a kid, but never saw much more than the first five or six episodes. This June I managed to catch the entirety of the uncensored dub, and man, it was cool. There's a lot more nudity and adult jokes that were surely censored out for Toonami, which is understandable. But at the same time, those jokes added a lot to the series. A lot of these jokes probably went over my head as a kid, too... I don't know. Outlaw Star is only one season, but the character development is satisfying and the pacing is good. It left me wanting more.
This really took me by surprise. I first heard about Watamote on 4chan, believe it or not. First I read the manga, then checked out the anime. I found Tomoko to be a character I can relate to, and the story was nice. I'll be sure to keep up with this one as it progresses.
