Finished watching Space Dandy

As usual, i started by searching for specific which is SPACE. I kinda known that this series would be a ridiculous story about bounty hunter in space. As the main part of it is in comedy, it will be the main part i will solely judging my enjoyment out of it. If i want to put Space Dandy in specific bucket, I would put it under weird / wacky / absurd comedy, thus this is not for me (i prefer cute random slapstick comedy).

The premise is very simple, our MC is just bounty hunter who want to find new alien and register them to get some money. I think a proper tag for this series probably a series of mis-adventure as well, as our MC is being thrown around with series of unfortunate event. There isnt much plot to say about this series, one of the reason why i kinda dislike it a bit.

If you like this kind of comedy, you will enjoy. The series have awesome smooth animation (sakuga moment) but I just dont care pretty much about the story of this series at all. I rather watch a series with proper plot, but with minor comedy.

Alternative : This remind me much of Cowboy Bebop and TTGL although not exactly close. Alternative probably the Redline movie (awesome one) and Nichijou (which absurd comedy, but i like that style more)

Finished High Score Girl

Are you grow in 90s playing video games and going to game arcade? If yes then this is anime for you. This anime is pretty nostalgia trip with various of video games from 80s and 90s shown in every episode. Main premise basically there is a weird girl who pretty good at games, thus all the over the top and comedy happening through out the series. The tag of this romcom, which is romance comedy, so if u dislike this type of anime, you better stay away from it. Another part that could be negative in my eyes is the usage of full 3D CGI for the whole series despite it doesnt need it at all since there are no complex action battle scene and most of the scenes can be done simply with hand drawn.

I admit i had some trouble to finish, mainly because i feel bored on both gaming and watching anime side, so this anime took me weeks to finish. I dont think im considering this romcom my type since i generally hate absurd gag and violent comedy. Bonus side, apparently the main girl never talk throughout whole season, thus heavily rely on physical force or other people give narration.

Alternative : Chuunibyou probably more cute and comedy that i liked more, this anime also remind me of Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san which i just finished recently.

It have been a while for me since I finished an anime.
Mainly because I have no open world games that I can chill + watching anime at the same time.


Finished Mitsuboshi Color

Ok, I admit I kinda put high expectation from this anime because it have all stuff that I wanted from cute loli slice of life anime. But turn it wasnt the case, they are not cute are kinda annoying brats who play around which is kinda loud and obnoxious. Usually it quite hard to make hate an anime, but this is one isnt for me.

Premise is pretty straight forward where a group of trio little girls who went around town to help other people, instead they were on misadventure with plenty of jokes / gags as usual comedy anime. Each have their own weird wacky personality that kinda make / break for enjoyment of the series. It didnt work much for me mainly because there arent much memorable moment for me that make me "feel good, cute or being a kid".

The series felt flat for me from the start. As usual standard gag / comedy which tend to be plot-less, this anime feel lacking in many aspect. Sure it can make you feel like you are kid again, but only if you are a loud annoying kids who keep bugging other people.

Alternative : If you want calming + cute series, non non biyori or ichigo mashimaro is better. If you want more absurd gag / comedy, then minami-ke or mitsudomoe have stronger theme. My favourite of cute girls doing cute things (or absurd) is definitely azumanga daioh or nichijou.


EDITED

Finished My Girlfriend is Shobitch

By title alone, it is kinda misleading because you thought the girl would be unlikeable and boring, instead awkward, weird and honest girl. However, with low score that series have together with ecchi tag, I kinda know what kind of expectation that I put when watching this series. Ugh, again, gutless MC with harem is a bit turn off for me at this point unless the girls are interesting / enjoyable to counter the balance.

The MC is normal straight forward guy while the main girl is honestly trying to learn to become best girlfriend, thus gag / comedy insure throughout the series. There are a lot sexual innuendo being thrown around although plot wise I think the series lack something unique and it is pretty boring for me from start to finish. Better watch a good series that focused more on comedy / romance or ecchi than this series.

I suggest you skip this series since it is nothing new, pretty much standard mediocre anime.

Alternative : For romcom, you can check Nozaki-kun, Lovely Complex or Baka-test. For more ecchi, Sora no Otoshimono is the best as well as To Love-ru series. But if you want better option for more similar anime to this, then you have series like B-Gata H Kei, Seitokai Yakuindomo and Shimoneta.

Finished watching SSSS Gridman

I was specifically looking for a mecha anime, and im somehow intrigued by the ultraman-like design poster. Turned out I was semi correct, after small research, seem like this anime was produced by same studio that made ultraman live action series, then given to trigger studio to animate which is well known anime studio for flashy animation and artstyle.

First several episodes of this series is exactly what you expect from trigger studio, it make you pumped up to watch every episodes, especially the battle scene at the end of each episodes. Some people might turned off by this "monster of the week" design, but to it is quite entertaining especially when it was added mysterious / intriguing plot about origins of kaiju (giant monster). Despite you know the origin of them, you still puzzled through the season because it is not properly explained. Additional to new monster, our protagonist also get new upgrade every episodes to solve problem coming from new kaiju. So in a sense, you able to their evolution.

However, SSSS Gridman is not perfect enjoyment anime for everyone. Aside from flashy animation and intriguing mysterious plot in the beginning, the series is kinda feel flat mid till end because none of the story plot was properly resolved by end of the series. 12 Episodes also kinda made it fast paced compared to live action counterpart, but that not an excuse to make weak closure.

Alternative : For intriguing mysterious plot : Bokurano or World Trigger. For similar feeling of "teenager pilot" , Neon Genesis Evangelion & Darlling in the Franxx. For badass animation scene, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann or Kill La Kill is pretty close.
