Riiko’s Favorite Animes: Spring 2016

Here’s my summary of my favorite Animes in Srping season 2016.

This time, I copied the Story description from AniDB. It all belongs to them, including the linked pictures.

My season favorite: Re: Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu
Genres: fantasy, magic, parallel universe, tragedy, unexpected story twists
Riiko’s Rating
: 10/10
Riiko’s Watch Recommendation: Watch as soon as it’s released!
Riiko’s Comment: Unexpected story twists, unperfect main character, not the “one guy many girls who like him”-harem standard you might expect by looking at pictures of the anime. It’s amazing, different and unexpected. Watch it!
Story: Natsuki Subaru is an ordinary high school student who is lost in an alternate world, where he is rescued by a beautiful, silver-haired girl. He stays near her to return the favour, but the destiny she is burdened with is more than Subaru can imagine. Enemies attack one by one, and both of them are killed. He then finds out he has the power to rewind death, back to the time he first came to this world. But only he remembers what has happened since.

Macross Delta
Genres:
Mecha, Idol, Science Fiction
Riiko’s Rating
: 8/10
Riiko’s Watch Recommendation: If you watch this after Re: Zero, it will feel superficial and not as tragic. Don’t watch it afterwards!
Riiko’s Comment: You like Mechas? This is a must-watch! Somehow not as impressive as Macross Frontier. Frontier also had nicer songs. Nanairo Ninjin LOVES YOU YEAH!!
Story: Macross Delta is set in the year 2067, 8 years after the events of the latest Macross TV series, Macross Frontier. The story focuses on Walküre, a team of talented idols and Valkyrie pilots and the Delta Squadron, a team of experienced Valkyrie pilots as they battle against the Var Syndrome, a mysterious entity that is consuming the galaxy. But both must battle the mysterious Aerial Knights, a group of Valkyrie pilots from the Kingdom of Wind.

Sakamoto desu ga
Genres:
School life, Comedy
Riiko’s Rating
: 8/10
Riiko’s Watch Recommendation: This anime will always cheer you up!
Riiko’s Comment: Perfect student is hated by many and loved by all the girls. Whatever he does, he looks and is cool and awesome. Don’t think this is possible with awful bullies? Well, look for yourself.
Story: The story follows the daily life of the “coolest” high school student, Sakamoto. As soon as he transfers to his new school, he attracts the attention of not just his class but the whole student body, and his jealous classmates’ attempts to bully him repeatedly backfire and instead make Sakamoto look cooler.

Kumamiko
Genres:
Daily life, Miko
Riiko’s Rating
: 6/10
Riiko’s Watch Recommendation: It’s entertaining. If you’re looking for some light entertainment with guaranteed funny elements, this is the anime for you.
Riiko’s Comment:  It’s not a really awesome anime but it’s different. A young miko with a sacred bear who can talk and is more knowledgable than her. What could possibly go wrong?
Story: Machi is a girl who serves as a shrine maiden (miko) at a Shinto shrine enshrining a bear (kuma) in the recesses of a certain mountain in Japan’s northern Tohoku region. Machi’s guardian is a talking bear named Natsu, and one day Machi tells him that she wants to go to a school in the city. The worrywart Natsu then gives Machi — who is ignorant about the ways of the world — a set of trials that she must pass in order to be able to survive in the city.

Terra Formars – Revenge
Genres: 
science fiction, humanoid/cockroachoid alien
Riiko’s Rating
: 9/10
Riiko’s Watch Recommendation: Liked the first Season? Then this is the 2nd one for you.
Riiko’s Comment: I love it. Can’t wait for the 3rd season!
Story: No description on AniDB… uhhh… So the genetically changed humans are still on Mars, fighting the cockroachoid aliens which seem more stronger and advanced than expected. Who is the traitor to humanity?

Gyakuten Saiban / Phoenix Wright
Genres: 
lawyer, based on a game
Riiko’s Rating
: 7/10
Riiko’s Watch Recommendation: Liked the games? Must watch it. Otherwise it’s probably rather boring.
Riiko’s Comment: Unfortunately, the anime seems a bit boring to me. I played the games and loved them. The cases in the anime are exactly like in the games. Yet, only if you’re excited from knowing the games, you will probably enjoy the anime. Horrible subs translates all names to the english ones used in the games instead of the original japanese one. So don’t be confused when they say a different name than you read in the subs.
Story: AniDB story description: “Based on Gyakuten Saiban (Ace Attorney) game franchise by Capcom.” Oh well.

Big Order
Genres:
crazy, superpowers, world domination
Riiko’s Rating
: 6/10
Riiko’s Watch Recommendation: Did you like Mirai Nikki? Then you will like this one too.
Riiko’s Comment: While I liked the anime, it’s nothing compared to Code geass where they also have powers… Also, the main character makes a girl pregnant by just touching her. With his hand. On her clothes. Like… WTF. She also gives birth a few hours later. Um. Yeah.
Story: The story centers on an introverted high school student named Hoshimiya Eiji with a huge secret — he wished for the destruction of the world when he was younger. Fairies give certain people special powers called Orders. What Order Users can do with their power depends on their wishes. 10 years after the Great Destruction, Eiji struggles to come to terms with his immense power.
