2011 Spring Season Anime Picks: Hidan no Aria(aka Shakugan no Shana-magic+guns)

April 27, 2011

I’ll start off by saying, my little brother picked this. He likes guns, loli’s and action. All of which Hidan no Aria has, wrapped up in neat little not-to-fanservicey package. Which is also great, because he’s only 13 😄 I don’t want him exposed to the kind of thing I was at the same age. I’d already read Chobits by his age. And was working my way through Love Hina & other stuff. I know the Tokyopop age rating was only a rough guide, but they were selling me Chobits when I was 12, & it was marked 16+ XD. I was tall for my age though… STILL. My little broseph can wait. He’s seen anime based on eroge/VN’s as it is lol. Non-ecchi ones though :3

Also, he loves Shakugan no Shana, even bought the DVD boxset(go him!!). So we both noticed the similarity to Shakugan no Shana lol. It’s basically the same thing, only Aria has guns+swords instead of magic+swords XD. (He also loves 24, so lots of guns/violence/chases etc, he loves it XD) We checked afterwards for voice actors and both lol’d at the fact Shana’s seiyuu is voicing Aria XD.

2011 Spring Season Anime Picks 1: Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi

The lovely Ui ❤

It’s those eyes. The blue with green. It’s not that common to do that with (optical)eyes. And I LOVE Feng’s artwork. It’s too cute. Theres that figure in the polkadot bikini I still want. I think I like Ui because facially they’re quite similar, hair colour isn’t dissimilar too. And both have a cute hair decoration. So yeah, I’ve fell for the main chara in just the first ep XD, the ditzy, stereotypically moe girl, so what? They’re meant to be appealing!! I don’t mind moe, I get that theres been WAY too much of it recently, but it honestly doesn’t bother me lol, I simply don’t want much of the moe-driven anime. But when certain character designs attract my attention, I give them a chance at least.
