Now let’s talk about the other teacher fucker show! Yes, we didn’t get just one, but TWO shows based around teacher and students having the hots for each other. While Nobunaga Sensei’s Young Bride brought the goods, can this series, known for it’s almost hentai level of Ecchi keep up? This review has taken me hours to craft, going over every little detail. So after the cut join me on an in-depth shallow dive on the series Why the Hell are you here Sensei?
We all knew this was coming.
Neon Genesis Evangelion, one of the most influential anime series of all time has finally been put on Netflix. Regardless of your personal opinions on the series, finally being able to see it on a legal platform, after years of forcing to buy overpriced dvds, or bootleg version, is a welcome sight. And what better way to celebrate it then with some opinions!
Welcome to Don’t @ Me, where like Shinji’s crippling depression. I rise up from the darkness to deliver some hard biting truths about anime. It’s raw, to the point and has more leg than Misato. Join me after the cut as I give you ten of my opinions, some snarky, some genuine, about this legendary series.
It has not been a good year for Ecchi in 2019. The shows have been sparse and those we do have have been decent at best, horrible at worst, or in the case of Why the Hell are you Here Teacher?: censored to hell and back.
That’s a shame really, because 2018 was all around a banner year for the sub genre, with How not to Summon a Demon Lord becoming a runaway hit, and High School DxD Hero proving to everyone why it’s still the king. While 2019 is not over yet, and there are some interesting shows coming up (Please don’t suck Isekai MILF!). It has just been a really weak year.
The show we are looking at today is one of those weaker shows, so join me as I take a look at Nobunaga-sensi no Osananzuma, or, Nobunaga teacher’s young bride.
Nobunaga Sensei is a very strange show. With each episode around 6 to 7 minutes, it always feels like a show that is just getting started before it suddenly ends, which is a shame because the premise is actually quite interesting.
Our lead, a decedent of the great Oda Nobunaga is a teacher at a local high school and everything is peaceful until, when his hand touches an ancient object, he finds himself in the presence of a young girl named Saito Kicho who claims that she is his bride to be. What follows next are short mini episodes of ecchi antics where more and more girls connected to Nobunaga’s life are introduced to cause comedic chaos.
Now it’s hard to talk about a show like this simply because it’s so short. This is a show that at the very least should have been 12 to 15 mins, or a full 24. There is enough comedy among the girls, enough chemistry among the characters that the series could have gone on for a bit longer, but I guess they didn’t bother.Which is a shame, because unlike the other show, this one was actually uncensored and brings a respectable amount of “the goods”. Again this has been a horrible year for ecchi, so beggars can’t be choosers and thankfully there is quite a bit done in the short run time.
And that’s about all I have to say about Nobunaga-sensi no Osananzuma. I was never not entertained by the show, and I chuckled a more than a few times at some of the comedy. It’s nothing special at all, but hey…at least it’s fully uncensored.
I had a whole fucking FULL post ready to be published, then it randomly got deleted. I fucking HATE it when this happens. But I can’t be bothered to re-write the whole damn thing again, so you’re getting the cliff-notes version. Gah that pisses me off, anyway here are my thoughts on the first cour of Fruits Basket 2019.
- I can see why people love this show. Twelve episodes in, and I am already fully committed to watching this until the end. It’s an exceptionally well done piece of anime so far.
- Tohru is a good character, but feels a little basic and hollow right now. Is that the point? I know the broad strokes of the plot, but I am hoping we get a bit more meat to her character in the next cour.
- Kyo and Yuki feel like almost stereotypical shoujo character, but since this is considered a landmark title, I suppose that’s the point?
- The first cour feels very much like set up, establishing the core characters, their personality traits and place in the Zodiac chain/Soma hierarchy. Again this is going to be a 60+ episode series, so we can forgive that for now.
- Tohru’s friends are the best, with Hana walking away with series MVP so far.
- Hatori is my favorite Soma, giving us a great little peak into that Fruits Basket angst the series is known for.
- Akito, the series villain show up in the twelfth episode and does a remarkable job showing us the danger and fear that the other Soma’s have towards the family head. I had chills just watching it.
- Shigure’s hinting at darker motives for having Tohru stick around the household is also a great sense of foreshadowing.
- The comedy so far has been really well done, Hana again is a great fucking character. I’ll buy any statue that make of her in that cute black dress and hat, just GIVE IT TO ME.
- So far, the series has not gone full “Sadness: The Anime,” yet, but I know it’s coming and I am READY for it. Bring it on.
I’ve made it no secret that I am an abashed fan of the series Girls und Panzer, however it is a show I have only really covered once on this blog. While I knew there was a movie follow up, as well as a now in production series of 6 “mini films” serving as the finale, I just haven’t really gotten around to talk about it. That changes today however, so join me as I take a shallow dive in the theatrical film: Girls und Panzer der FILM.
Fate Prisma Illya is the longest running Fate anime, and it’s a spinoff. It’s a very love/hate sort of show with great moments, fun comedy, a rather interesting story and of course..Kuro. The opening and ending themes are also really great. So the tune of the week is Fate Kaleid liner Prisma Illya’s first opening: starlog by Choucho!
And that’s season 1 done and dusted!
12 episodes in, and I am already loving being back in the World of High School DxD and enjoying rediscovering parts of the series for the first time. Now that most of the pieces have been set in place, the show is ready to jump in with the first real baddie of the piece. Once again we got a bit to go through, so after the cut let’s take a dive into the second half of season one and the second story arc: The Raiser Arc.
