What I will be watching in the fall 2016 anime season including non-seasonal anime.

 

The summer 16 is reaching to its closure and the fall 16 anime season is almost here. I thought it would be fun if I show you guys what animes that I will be checking out in the fall 16 season.

Which ever anime season I will be watching a bunch of non-seasonal as well so I can not get bored while waiting for an another episode for that series that is will be airing.

Furthermore I won’t be watching any anime squeals that will be airing beside Haikyuu S3 because I am a big fan of Haikyuu. I will watch the rest of the squeals when they series have finished airing.

 

With that out of the let’s dive in to this list.

Anime Review 1.4 Inazuma Eleven

Anime Review 1.4 Inazuma Eleven
outlaw-star-jim-brains
Me looking for anime to watch in my PTW list in a nutshell.

In December of 2015 I decided to pick a bunch of non-seasonal anime that I wanted to watch alongside the winter 16 season. One of these series was Inazuma Eleven.

Now I went into this anime with very low expectations due to the fact that I don’t like sports that much plus some of my least favourite sports are football, boxing volleyball and baseball. So I was expected to hate this anime because of it. As again I don’t like sports that much and honestly I was expecting to kinda hate this anime. Was I wrong in my personal judgement or I am right.

 

Hello everyone Shawn/TheKazeTrigger here and today I will be reviewing the anime series Inazuma Eleven is this show worth a watch let’s find out?

 

Story.

inazuma-eleven-full-346373

The story takes place a Raimon Junior High School where Team Captain Endou has to form new members for the Raimon soccer and they hope to complete in various tournaments. But before they do that they have to face Teikoku Gakuen at the soccer so the soccer club won’t be disbanded by the school

Inazuma Eleven is split up into 3 main arcs as well as some subplots that take place during the main arcs.

Football Frontier ARC (EP1-26)

Ailea Academy ARC (EP27-EP65)

Football Frontier International ARC (EP66-127 End)

Honestly the story isn’t the strongest part of Inazuma Eleven. If am going to be real honest here it’s one of the weaker parts especially in the earlier episodes of the first arc which I found to be cheesy at times but at the same time I just can’t to get really infested into it.

The first half it its execution. In my opinion you can make even the most boring sounding setups really good if you can get the execution just right and Inazuma Eleven just that. Honestly I don’t care if the sport is realistic or not because for I only care about the execution more than anything else

The other half are the subplots and in my opinion they are some best subplots I have ever seen in any anime. They are just really handled well and they add life to the characters which prevents them from being boring and generic shounen characters.

All of the arcs were all very enjoyable to watch and they well directed because each arc knows to use its content really well.

The show explores the theme for friendship, teamwork, value as well as overcoming your fears and weaknesses and this show manages to executes them perfectly.

I really like the story for this one even though it’s on the little basic side for the most part. I don’t think much more was needed because the execution of it was so well handled especially in seasons 2 and 3 where the writers decided to go all out.

Great job director Katsuhito Akiyama.

9/10

Characters.

inazuma-eleven-full-508317

The characters are what really brings this show together because like with the story it is execution was just great.

First we have Endou Mamoru who is our main captain for the Raimon and later on Inazuma Japan as well as being the main goalkeeper for the team.

Endou starts off as a goofy and kinda hot headed protestant who has a passion for football but honestly as the series progresses he developed from a less goofy hot headed main protagonist to a very determined and more responsible captain for the team.  I actually adore this character because he is well developed character and a lovable one.

I was really impressed with Endou as a who and that’s why I adore him and he’s one of my favorites characters in the show to be honest,

Next up we have our main striker for Raimon Gouenji Shuuya.

Now like Endou he has a strong passion for football but unlike Endou he’s much calmer but self-centred but as the series progresses he much friendly to the team as having massive character development. Not to mention his subplot and backstory was just great and well told.

Overall Gouenji is a great character for his own right.

Lastly we have Kidou Yuuto who is the brains and strategist player for Raimon who is formerly the Captain of the Teikoku Academy but now is an irreplaceable addition to Raimon Junior High. I can only say this much to this character because he is a walking spoiler character which hes side plot. Besides the one that I just mentioned because it happens early on the story anyway.

All I can say about Kidou is he is an amazing character and he is one of the few complex characters.

The rest of the characters are hit or mess depending on your tastes.

For me most of the characters were great because they had they own subplots which are well written for the most part and they fun to watch as well as being well developed. Sure there were a few miss characters like but least they didn’t damage the show for me.

Then we have what is easily my favourite characters in Inazuma Eleven. Kazemaru Ichirouta.

I honestly have grown attached with this chararter because I just really liked how his very friendly as well as being competitive player not to mention I really adore he’s character design

In my option Kazemaru is probably the most realistic character in this show personality wise. Kazemaru is such an amazing character and is currently my anime mascot for my WordPress website.

Overall the characters were just amazing in my opinion

Art/Animation.

tumblr_m8m13buzut1rwadi6o2_r1_500

If you guys didn’t know Inazuma Eleven was done by OLM which is the same studio that brought us Pokemon, Youkai Watch and Berserk 1997 and to be honest with you guys. Besides this and Berserk (1997) OLM I don’t think OLM is not a good studio least in my option.

The art of Inazuma Eleven is fresh and surprised great because I like most the character deigns because they feel fresh and original

 

One thing that I liked that is the use of color for each arc representing the mood and the tone of each arc.

The football frontier arc has bright color feel it to it but not full colorful while the Aliea Academy arc has a more depressing feel to it. Then we have the football frontier arc international arc which has more modern sports anime feel to it because of the colour usage and the art, in general, has greatly improved in the terms of quality.

 

The animation is surprising really good and it stays consistent all the thought and when they players use hissatsu techniques its freaking amazing of how well animated they all are. Sure at times can use re-use the hissatsu animation but for a show like this I didn’t really bother me too much because they are amazingly animated.

Also the character designs for the most part were great and very unique

Sure there were a few questionable ones but they didn’t really bother me too much.

This is by definitely Oriental Light and Magic finest work in terms of art and animation especially in season 3 (Football Frontier International Arc) where it looks absolutely beautiful at times putting some of the recent anime to shame.

Overall the art/animation is great for what it is.

Sound.

inazuma-all-stars-full-429996

The first time that I listened to the OST I personally found it lacklustre but over time I started getting used to it and I ended up completely loving the OST because how amazing it was.

Hell, some of the tracks in Inazuma Eleven are emotional and just plan epic.

Notable tracks include.

Teikoku Gakuen Theme empire Gakuen came!

Mortal combat with the empire Gakuen

Lethal Attack

Gathering Circle

Kanashii Kano

At this of the Inazuma Eleven OST has become one of my favourite anime OST.

 

All of the Opening and Endings themes are amazing and a good listen. My favourite openings and endings in Inazuma Eleven are opening 4 and ending 3 because they fit every well with each other like the opening 4 adds hype for that arc while ending 1 closes that arc perfectly.

The Japanese audio for the series was great and the voice actors were well acted.

Notable performance goes to Junko Takeuchi as Endou Mamarou, Hiroyuki Yoshino as Kidou Yuuto, Sanae Kobayashi as Natsumi Raimon, Rie Kugimiya aka (Tsundere Queen) as Toramaru Utsunomiya, Yuki Kaji as Kazuya Ichinose and Nishigaki, Yuka as Kazemaru Ichirouta.

There’s also an English dub. Please don’t watch the English dub it’s really bad. I watch the dub for this on Nintendo’s anime channel just to see how it is and it was just awful. Not only the voices were bad but the audio quality itself is bad plus the story and characters development were butchered to all hell.

All of the character has different names and they were really bad on that and the final nail of the coffin for this dub is the show cuts off after season 2 leaving you with a uncompleted story.

I only watched the first 2 episodes for the dub for this I dropped it half way in episode because the voices were just so freaking horrible to listen plus the voice actors had no emotion with the roles whatsoever.

This is a horrendous dub and it up there with some of the worst dubs I heard up there with Higurashi, Fushigi Yuugi, and Samurai X Trust and Betrayal dub is that bad.

 

So there really no reason to watch Inazuma Eleven dubbed and I won’t take any points away because its honestly hard to find a Inazuma Eleven dub nowadays let alone good quality.

Overall besides what I said about the dub the I really love the OST, Openings, Endings and voice acting for the original Japanese audio.

10/10

 

Final Thoughts.

inazuma-eleven-full-530657

Inazuma Eleven might just be the anime that I realize I judged this too early.

Am being real honest when I say that my opinions for this anime went from basically is just an another mediocre sports anime to oh my god l freaking this anime so much!!!

Seriously this went being something that i will hate to something that I will love and it impressed me in so many ways that I will never thought possible with a sports anime let alone a kid’s anime.

This and another show called Gurren Lagann taught me that you don’t have to dark and serious or realistic to be good.

This is just an awesome anime that I barely speak my praises enough. The story, the characters, the animation the OST, the openings the endings and the voice acting were all just great. I know it could easily have flopped but execution for everything is so great that I can’t ignore it.

I love Inazuma Eleven and I glad to put this anime in my favorites list.

I give Inazuma Eleven a 9.5/10 (It was a blast that I will forever love)

Yeah it has its hip-cups and despise is very too high of a score but to extremely honest I just don’t care.

I absolutely love this anime.

Anime Review 1.3 Gundam Build Fighters Try.

Anime Review 1.3 Gundam Build Fighters Try.

The first season of Gundam Build Fighters was just amazing because I never expected Gundam Build Fighters to be good in the slightest because of growing my bitterness to the children anime in general.

It had a great simple story with great writing, amazing characters, wonderful art/animation and the ost was just a masterpiece of art.

Update for my season 1 review I think the Dub of Build Fighters was good for what is was but it had some problems with some of the characters voices not sounding good at the beginning.

tumblr_mzhoai2XN61ru4z27o1_500

The first season of Gundam Build Fighters is in my top 10 favourite anime of all time.

When I saw Gundam Build Fighters for the first I expected to be almost as great as the first season of Gundam Build Fighters.

If only that was true.

1412615647802y8pcr

Hello everyone Shawn/TheKazeTrigger and I will be reviewing the squeal to the sleeper hit Gundam Build Fighters Gundam Build Fighters Try. Is this show worth the watch let’s find out.

Story.

723d470df6d01996e1a99172bbfe2d0a

The story is almost literally the same as the first season but downgraded in quality.

Why you may ask?

Well for starters the writing in this season is clearly not that good because remember the amazing humour that the first season had. Well the first season type of humour is gone and it’s replace with meh humour at best to cringe-worthy humour at worst.

Secondly this season feels more like a battle shounen more than a hobby that  people can enjoy equally because the rivals in the season behave more like a generic villains that just wants power for they own deeds.

That’s alone hurts the characterisation for this cast and it’s really a shame that writers went for a shounen route this time. The first season had its shounen moments but it was less notable due to the great character interactions and strategies that happens in the first season.

Also the battles are all predictable and boring because in Season 1 there was a lot of strategies in the fight and also the battles were almost non predictable. In Try however fights are boring, unexciting and to add insult to injury they is a bunch of Deus Ex Machinas now meaning whenever team try fighters are in a hopeless situation Sekai’s Gunpla will magically get stronger just to advance the plot.

I have admit that some of the fights were hype but the hype factor was negated due to god awful plot armour and Deus Ex Machinas that the Team Try Fighters have.
In short the story is such a train-wreck compared to S1 but its own it really a generic mess.

5/10

Characters.

tumblr_nn1f19wqpr1qmlmyuo1_500

If I have to describe the character cast in a nutshell it would be wasted potential.

Now I have to admit that Sekai is really a good character on his own but the problem is he doesn’t really well with the other characters because compare to Sekai the other characters are just bland and un-interesting.

I had this same problem with Touma from A Certain Magical Index) because every other character besides him are not shounen type character and I think it really messes up the genre for me.

Overall I liked Sekai.

Next we have Fumina…

What the fuck did you do to this character Sunrise?

Fumina starts off being a potential great female lead because she is a team leader and she was a strong combatant for the first couple of fights.

As the series however literally becomes a supporting character because reasons?

What really pissed me of about this Fumina is ever since she became a supporting character she started doing retarded shit like being a half ass tsundere, joins Sekai ‘s harem and the final nail of the coffin for Fumina is she literally got nerfed  to death meaning she is more weak than any supporting characters in the first season. That is just sad.

In general Fumina is just perfect example of a wasted potential character.

You thought Fumina was missed potential Yuuma is literally a badly written character.

He’s boring, pretentious, uninteresting and he’s is really a poor man’s Sei, Not to mention Yumma sup plot is just terrible because you won’t believe this wonderful writing The main reason why he’s depressed and stop playing altogether Gunpla because somebody beat him in a Gunpla battle.

Let’s say that again. The main reason why he’s depressed and stopped playing Gunpla altogether because somebody beat him in a Gunpla battle.

What’s even worst about this he’s stopped playing Gunpla because of humiliation not because of an illness or family issues and by the way those are perfect sup plot sets for this character but no we get a poorly written revenge story instead because we haven’t got enough of those stories right.

Overall Yuuma is a terrible character.

The rest of the characters are also not that good .

In fact the side characters in TRY hurt the anime more than the story and the main characters because the side characters here are just really bad.

Don’t get me started how comical the rivals here because they don’t have any passion for the sport whatsoever and most of them are doing it for the money, some school pride or some business shit.

Also the character interactions were just bad and at times cringe-worthy.

Overall the characters in Gundam Build Fighters Try were really bad besides Sekai and the show biggest fault by a long shot.

4/10

Art/Animation. 

If the show has any positive at all its the art/animation.

Sunrise really did a really good job with the backgrounds, character deigns and movement mainly the gunpla fights.

They just look amazing. Some of the better animation from a Gundam series in my opinion especially the last couple of episodes. It’s easily the best aspect of the show to be honest.

Also the mecha designs were just wonderful as ever.

8/10

Sound.

gbft_ost_01

The OST itself is good for what it was but compare to the first season its not that great and it times it can be forgettable.

I can hardly remember a single track from the ost at all and this really sad because the first season ost is one of my favourite ost in anime.

The first opening Cerulean by BACK-ON is a good song and it really fits into the show really well and it’s also one best parts of Gundam Build Fighters Try. It’s catchy as hell and its a good listen.

The second opening Just Fly Away by EDGE of LIFE is also a good song but compare to the first opening its just okay and its feels more like a ending theme in my opinion.

Even tho Gundam Build Fighters Try has 2 good openings its simply can’t complete with the first season opening 2 wimp ft. Lil’Fang (from FAKY) by BACK-ON because one the song had its own charm and secondly it was catchy and lastly the song was pure hype.

The first ending theme Amazing The World  by SCREEN mode is a great song and its easily the best ending theme from the Gundam Build Fighters series.

The second ending theme Mayomayo Compass wa Iranai by StylipS is a okay ending theme. Nothing more nothing less.

At this time of the Gundam Build Fighters has a dub and to be honest with you. The dub is decent nothing in more nothing less

If you had a choice of sub or dub I would say stick with the sub unless you like watching dubbed anime such as myself.

7/10

Final Thoughts.

Wasted Potential is easily the best way to describe Gundam Build Fighters Try as a whole.

It’s has terrible characterisation, pretentious sub plots, weak story, very predictable fights that have contains lots of plot armour and deus ex machinas, a borderline forgettable ost and its kinda unsatisfying at the end.

Sorry Sekai san.

On its own its a highly enjoyable but mediocre Gundam title but if you compare it to the well written first season its kinda of a train-wreck and it clearly doesn’t do the first season justice in my opinion.

It takes away the fun of the first season and actually takes away a lot of the charm of the first season and it’s really a shame. If you’re planning to watch this only watch it for the mecha battles and Sekai’s character development.

I give Gundam Build Fighters Try a 6 /10 ( It’s a mediocre squeal from a first season that I adored)

I don’t have any recommendations this time. 😦

Anyway this has been Shawn aka TheKazeTrigger and I will see you guys next time.
