So, blogging plans: No Tiger and Bunny because the second episode was kinda lame. No Hanasaku Iroha because, even though the second episode remained around the same quality, I’m not too fond of melodrama and don’t feel like covering that sort of anime. No Nichijou, which I could probably say a lot about because wacko comedies are sort of my forte, but I’m too worried it will do the old KyoAni thing of sticking to cuteness for the sake of cuteness. At the moment I’m leaning towards Steins;Gate, depending on how good the second episode is, and something from the later batch of anime, most likely [C].
Along with Fireball Charming, because my empress Drossel commands it. Not sure how well this will work, what with each episode being only 2 minutes long and all, but I did cover almost 70 episodes of Hetalia. This is not uncharted territory for me.
I’m guessing the first season of Fireball must have done some mighty fine business for Disney. Certainly enough for them to pump money back into the franchise because oh my Drossel has the animation quality ever improved. From the lighting in the classroom scene from the last episode to Drossel’s magnificent display of her reflexes (say it again Gedächtnis, magnificent!), they’re really flaunting their budget here. Swooping camera angles and everything. Now if only every CGI mecha could look as good as Drossel. Not that I want every mecha to have as prominent hips as she does. While the original design will always be my favourite, what this new design does is make her do is thrust those hip
bones pistons about quite a lot. No wonder Gedächtnis told her she was being a bit un-ladylike, what with her effectively doing a pole dancing move into the chamber and everything.
One part I love about Fireball is how the world is apparently inhabited by way more than just Drossel and Gedächtnis, but that’s all we ever see and the show goes out of its way to not show anyone else. One of my favourite moments from the last season was the room of invisible maids. Now we have the man in charge of dropping a pan on Drossel’s head. We never see the poor guy, and we’ll never see him again because Gedächtnis is a tough employer, but he’s one of the many staff in charge of keeping their palace up to scratch.
…welp, guess 400 words per post is about as much as I’m ever going to manage for Fireball. Hopefully blogging this series will cut my wordcount down beyond its current 1100 state.
