I don’t usually do this, but this season I’ve decided to drop two series from my watch list halfway through. At the start of the season I was following 10 series (9 if you discount series with 2 minute episodes): Dragon Crisis, Gosick, Haiyoru Nyaruani, Kimi ni Todoke 2, Kore wa Zombie Desu Ka, Level E, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Star Driver, To Aru Majutsu no Index II, Yumekui Merry. My usual rate of anime consumption is somewhere between 4 and 7 series at a time so this season’s plate of anime was a lot for me. I managed to keep up with all of them at first, but over the past couple of months I’ve decided to drop Dragon Crisis and Level E from my watch list.
It’s been two weeks into the new anime season, and that means it’s time to head to the chopping board. I’m fairly certain that I’ve seen all of the major new anime airing this season and have now decided on which ones to keep watching and which ones to drop. Here are my thoughts based on the first or first two episodes of each series.
A naked baby that electrocutes everyone around him when he cries, and is raised by a high school delinquent sounds like a wild and crazy idea that would make a great anime. Unfortunately, Beelzebub just didn’t have what it takes to impress me. By the end of the first episode it seemed like the anime was trying to follow something along the lines of teen parenthood, but I just couldn’t take it seriously.
