Anime/Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi :

Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi aka A Dark Rabbit Has Seven Lives

Anyone else watching this? I just watched the first episode and it almost reaches So Bad, It's Good, it also has some rather odd use of Censor Shadow.

There are some quite funny moments though.

Knowledge is Power, Guard it Well
I'm watching it later this week. Thanks to the show's trailers' deletion from Youtube managing to make news on ANN, it's more or less out of Bile Fascination. grin

Oh, and the art looks cute.

Don't mind me. I'm just a creepy little lurker.
The trailer was removed from youtube? I suppose I can see why, naked loli vampires tend to get that sort of reaction.

Hmm.... a cute girl turns a guy into one of the living dead so he can be her servant... to show off that he's really dead he gets hit by a truck... and there's tons of pointless fanservice.

I feel like I watched this show already...

[up]Apart from the pointless fanservice (I think, it's been a while), that's pretty much the plot of 3x3Eyes.

Good Thing You Can Heal, I suppose. And being really unoriginal.

EDIT: Egregious use of tropes aside, I didn't hate this first episode quite as much as I should. Will probably watch the second episode and see where it goes from there.

That aside, just what is it with pantyshots in anime? Am I crazy for thinking it isn't sexy at all? Just what is the reason for putting it in, apart from insulting the viewer* ? I mean, I'm pretty sure most of those shots weren't in the original novel.

[up]Don't worry. You are not the only one.

I generally find that girls dressed in inherently sexy clothes such as tight-fitting denim booty shorts to hotter than those wearing non-sexy clothes (like school uniforms) and accidentally showing off something "sexy".

I guess it has something to do with how I like my girls to be strong confident, dominant, and in control, and accidental wardrobe malfunctions tend to undermine that kind of image, whereas intentionally dressing sexily is much more in keeping with that kind of image.

But I'm going off-topic and have nothing to say on this anime because I won't be watching it. If I want mindless fanservice from this season, I would probably go with Manyuu Hikenchou, and even then, not until all of the Blu-rays of it are out due to the censorship problems that this kind of anime tends to have when aired on TV.

I felt a little bored while watching this, but that might have been because I was seriously lacking sleep at the time.

I'm willing to give this another go, though. Hey, I survived HOTD. I can wade through the fanserivce in this one.

Yeah, when it comes to fanservice, I've seen way worse. Gratuitous panty shots aside, there wasn't much to see in that area at all. Heck, Taito and Himea's relationship seems in fact quite pure at this point (if somewhat creepy, with, you know, the whole 'slave, escort, beloved' deal).

I'm... Kind of interested. I'm a sucker for the entire "two people are joined somehow by magical stuff" plots. I guess. Admittedly because I hope against hope some show will actually epxlore the moral implications of something like this.

I think they will this time, actually. The whole 'Slave, escort and beloved' just screams this. It would be a terrible, terrible shame not to explore it now.

You can watch the show here.

Yeah, not sure about this show. -_-
NOT holding a Shoe Phone
The distractingly obnoxious fanservice (and the inept censoring thereof) is far from the worst problem this show has. The artstyle looks terrible, like a much brighter show half-assedly grittified with a brown filter, Dutch angles and ill-fitting special effects. The dialogue is often terrible. (Witness that awful scene where our hero stops dead on his tracks to exposit an awkward 6-line description of the villain, in pure As You Know fashion !) And the transitions between scenes are quite poor, as characters move from one to another without much logic.

It's too bad, because there a few genuinely good scenes (the pre-OP sequence with the contract, or the one where our hero's headless corpse moves about cluelessly after being hit by a truck), and it feels like there's the nugget of a good story somewhere in there. But the piles of crap surrounding it are too aggravating for me to bother.

Not really disagreeing about any of that.

The second ep was a bit better than the first.

The second episode did improve things somewhat although the series does still seem to have a bit of trouble with pacing. I have also now read what little of the manga is on Manga Fox and it does look like that is only slightly better on the pacing.

Together Forever...
This show gave us a new Shikata Akiko song, and that alone justifies its existence.

Anyway, this is a ZEXCS show, and it shows, so I'm not exactly expecting a masterpiece, but it was decent enough. Taito's a pretty good lead, once he gets his memory back he acts pretty decisively, and don't bitch about his situation.

Gekkou's actually kinda funny, and Mirai, his sidekick, is hilarious.

Love Himea, <3 <3.

And lol at Fukuyama being Fukuyama

Always Right
People exagerrated the level of fanservice in this series....

As for first impressions...

  • Himea has the most...unusual hair I've ever seen, even by anime standards.

  • They defeated Hinata too easily

  • the subtitles were badly timed

  • it was't that bad...I'll probably be following it. I like fantasy elements.

I thought he was going to do something cool with his powers as well. Like tear off his own arm when it has that blue fire and throw it like a bomb...

I really find all the fanservice comments a bit overstated; let's face it, it's not a case of paper clothes and Himea ages herself to a respectable 15 as soon as she reappears. If anything drives me away from this one, it's going to be the over-the-top jerk-assyness of Gekkou.

This show lacks in subtlety. Everything in episode 2 felt completely overblown. Which is fine, usually, if it were the final episode. Now it just felt like the show is trying too hard to impress us and fails.

I also call Deus ex Machina on Taito still living after dying 7 times, unless they come with a very good explanation on the next episode.
Always Right
Something tells me the "7 lives" rule is bogus, and it's affected by time and not amount of times killed.

I remember she was looking at the clock back in the flashback, and then she gets worried.
