Sengoku Basara - 01
I found the first episode entertaining coupled with good animation and amazing bgm , I think I’m going to like this series. I don’t know why I find this first episode funny (I don’t even know if it was intended to be funny or what), maybe it’s because if the OP sequence which I think is the best one this season, the character of Date Masamune and Sanada Yukimura and the part where there’s a n exchange of OYAKATA-SAMA! YUKIMURA! 3x Etc. Even at the very beginning Date Masamune began shouting English and it’s really funny because of the setting, it was set in ancient Japan where you expect people to talk different sounding Japanese. The background music is also cool coupled with good fight scenes and I like the concept of warring nations and the different strategies they employ (even though I can’t understand why that is called wood pecker strategy). It really looks promising for someone who hasn’t played the game, I just don’t know about the people who played the game. Aside from Valkyria Chronicles, I’m interested in blogging this one.
More on the OP….whoever who thought about the dancing soldiers…banzai to you.. that was hilarious, good job.
Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood - 01
I do sure believe that FMA: Brotherhood would be able to live up with the hype that it had caused. For a person who wasn’t able to watch the first version of FMA I find this first episode awesome. There was this chase with the ice alchemist dude which is awesome, coupled with the good visuals and splendid action; you could say that I’m already hooked. I think this series has some interesting characters and the part where it was pointed out that the military has done dirty things is quite interesting. I think the idea of the black and white background that emphasized the blood, when Bradley finished Isaac, was very cool.
The OP song is quite catchy especially the first part and I could say that the OP sequence was cool featuring the characters of the series and what caught my attention was the father of Edward. Is that an indicator that he will play a major part in this series? I wonder. Oh, I forgot to mention that the lip synchronization was cool too. On the other hand I like the ED song better but the animation sequence coupled to it, I find it not suitable but oh well, it’s the ending.
Wow, I’m also interested in blogging this but there are a lot of series that I haven’t watched yet and so far, almost of them(what I was able to watch) are good. I’m not yet sure on what to blog but let’s see once I watched some of the shows that I’ve listed in my preview, I’ll definitely choose what I’ll blog.
