Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai Review: The God of Conquest and 2D vs 3D

I mentioned before that I’ve been watching Haruhi for my school’s anime club, and this time around I’ll be talking about the other series I’ve been watching there.  A week before the club actually got around to finishing it, I watched through Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai, also known as The World God Only Knows, on my own.  It has been a while since I finished TWGOK, as it has been nearly a month since I finished it myself, though I am definitely catching up to my series as far as the blogging goes, even if that list continues to increase as I see more series.  Just like Haruhi, TWGOK ended up being a pretty enjoyable watch for me.  The two definitely had their share of humor and both were great ways to spend some time relaxing after a long day of school.  Of course, the two series are very different aside from that.  TWGOK is, well, an interesting case.  I suppose one might consider it an unconventional harem, though I would need to provide more elaboration on that as this is a very vague description.  It’s often a silly series but it does have its share of touching moments when necessary.

Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu Review: The Whims and Escapades of a High School Girl

The-Melancholy-of-Haruhi-Suzumiya-Episode-01

My school’s anime club has been watching two anime, one of which is Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu, better known as The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.  While we actually have yet to finish it, I went ahead and watched through the entirety of season 1 during Thanksgiving break.  Indeed, I know I am very late in watching this, but as the cliche goes, better late than never.  Haruhi’s a series that pretty much any anime fan has at least heard about, and while it definitely hit its prime popularity a while back, it’s still quite well-known today.  As I am quite fond of Kyoto Animation works for the most part, I was excited to finally watch through Haruhi after all this time.  While I wasn’t quite as blown away by it as I had expected to be, it was still quite a fun watch.  That said, more than anything it’s The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya that I’ve heard such great things about, so I’m aware that I have not yet seen all that Haruhi has to offer by any means.

Carnival Phantasm Review: Type-Moon Ridiculousness Galore

Once again I’ve been distracted from my plans to get to visual novels, but I suppose it was worth it.  Happened to have free time and I decided to watch a couple episodes of Carnival Phantasm with my friend.  I decided to watch the rest, and as expected, lots of hilarity ensued and all sorts of over the top craziness took place throughout the anime.
