In a lackluster season, I’ve finally found at least one show I can look forward to every week: Level E.
Ah, the classic love story.
Last season, I didn’t give Madhouse’s Iron Man much of a chance due to a couple of reasons:
1) I found the anime to be a bore. Despite all the action and energy, I didn’t care for anything that was happening on screen.
2) The recent Iron Man movies have contributed largely to Tony Stark’s characterization to a degree that can’t easily be ignored. I’m not sure what Madhouse’s intention was, but their version of Tony Stark seemed boring by comparison.
Have these problems been rectified for Wolverine, our favorite adamantium-lined, super-healing scamp?
4:09 AM: I can’t really get to sleep but yet I’m still exhausted somehow. I know what’ll help: anime. The following shows looked kinda bad — like walking into a cheap Chinese buffet bad — but I guess you should try everything at least once.
Slick production values and dealing with mysteries? Gosick had a couple things going for it already and I really did try to settle in and enjoy the show. In the end, however, the show succumbs to the fact that its narrator is yet another typical bland anime nerdhero.
