Anime watched in spring 2015 season

Spring season of 2015 has many interesting shows that I find interesting. Here is a list of the shows that I watched in that season, ranked according to my opinion from least to most enjoyable:

  • 7. Nisekoi:

    English Name: False Love

    w1280_Nisekoi_2nd_Season_backdrop

    Genres :  Comedy, Romance, School, Shounen, Harem
    Brief : second season of Nisekoi, where Raku is the center of his story with his locket given to him by his childhood girlfriend, the same characters exists in this season, with few new female characters appearing.

    My opinion : first season was much better, the same story and incidents occurring in this season with little advancements or plot, I force myself to watch many episodes hopping in will get better, but it didn’t ūüôĀ

  • 6. Owari Seraph

    English name: Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign

    3d745e151fb24686d50cf4173f52916d

    Brief : A mysterious virus appeared on Earth which killed every infected human except children, Hyakuya Yuuichirou is a kid taken with his ‘family’ from orphanage as livestock by the vampires who seems to rule the remaining humans. Hyakuya goal in life is to kill vampires.

    My opinion : Slow based first season that has some entertaining fights Рand other boring parts Р, the end of this season reveals that this is just the beginning, I guess it will turn into much better show and greator plot in the next season which is scheduled in October.

  • 5. Arslan Senki

    Brief : Arslan is 14 years old prince of Pars, who lost almost everything at war against neighboring nation “Lusitania”, he strive with his friends to reclaim his kingdom and build new better country. This anime is re-make of popular show from 1990s.

    My opinion : Interesting story that have very good animation and nice characters, the storyline is somehow realistic and has a some charm based on historical elements, hopefully it will have advancements in plot as the story advance. Although I prefer the old anime character design better.

    English Name: My Love Story!!

    Ore-Monogatari

    Genres : Comedy, Romance, Shoujo
    Brief : Gouda Takeo is a freshman in high school with giant body, not a good looking  guy so he is not popular with girls, yet he is very nice person with many friends. One day Takeo save a girl called Yamato in the bus from a pervert, and his romance life begins.

    My opinion : Very nice shoujo anime that worth watching, it is rare to have a romance story without the male protagonist being handsome. This anime has a good heartwarming story about the life on Takeo, his relationship with his girlfriend Yamato , his best friend Sunakawa along with many other characters. It really emphasize on the known idea: don’t judge people by their appearances.

    Fate-stay-night-Unlimited-Blade-Works-Simulcast-Ein-Blick-in-die-erste-Episode

    Genres :  Action, Fantasy, Magic, Shounen, Supernatural
    Brief : Remake of popular fate/stay night. It is about group of magician “masters” who¬†summon heretic spirits of the past called “servants”, fighting to win the holy grail; a mysterious device that can grant the wish of the winner. Unlimited blade works focus on the story of Shirou and Archer.

    My opinion : Great action fantasy anime, being produced by Ufotable, it has really beautiful artwork, animation and deep philosophy behind the story. Each one of the masters and servants has his complex personality along with interesting background story. Fate/stay night UBW is excellent anime, but to be honest, fate zero still is the superior.

This second season is one of the best emotional intelligent shows I have watched in a while, I really hope there will be a third season.

    My opinion : this anime is very amusing and has great story line. It is both realistic, emotional and somehow inspiring. I think it’s the best slice of live anime I have watched in a while.

Usagi Drop

One of the best anime shows that I have ever watched. This anime illustrates the true life of a foster parent with his child with their worries, happy times and normal life routines.

This anime talks about parenthood. It begins when the main character “Daikichi” gets to his grand father funeral. Surprisingly, the family found that the late grand father has a daughter named “Rin” from his mistress, when the family discussed what to do with this little girl,¬†rather that getting her into orphanage like the family almost settled on,¬† Daikichi decided to raise her at his house.

Life of Daikichi will not be the same anymore, there is new responsibility that imposed a change in his life style.

Its simply smoothing anime with simple yet attractive day to day life of normal people.
