Impressions on a Year 2007: Happy Action Fun Time

Written by TheBigN

This installment contains SPOILERS. I repeat, SPOILERS, so read at your own risk. This is also hella long, so again, read at your own risk. :3

With that being said, these are the episodes or moments in series this year that made an impact on me; the “definable” stuff.  I guess, in a way, you could say that as an extension, these are the memorable series for me for the year. Not all of them are my favorites for the year, and all of my favorites aren’t on this list, but these are the ones that stick in the mind long after the show’s over. 😛

Impressions on a Year 2007: Awesome Soundtracks I Haven’t Covered Yet

Written by TheBigN

By now, you should know what my standards of “awesome” are, but let’s move on, shall we? 😛

When I’m talking about a soundtrack, I think about all of the music that a show entails, including the OP/ED. So what was the point of having all of those tracks standalone in the first place? Because they usually arestandalone from the rest of the soundtrack; Unless you care about what you listen to while watching anime, you only tend focus on those pieces of music because they’re the intro/outro of the show. So I figured they needed something by themselves, but all of the show’s music needs a chance to shine as well.  Usual criteria for this: Liking more than half of what I listened to overall which is harder than it seems. This is probably why Senrei no Moribito‘s, Byousoku no 5cm‘s,Hayate the Combat Butler‘s (yeah really) and Heroic Age‘s OSTs aren’t on here: They we’re good consistent stuff, but they just didn’t work with me as well as these ones here did. And because ef‘s kickass soundtrack won’t be out till next year apparently (as short as that time is now), I’m not including it here. 😛 Continue reading ‘Impressions on a Year 2007: Awesome Soundtracks I Haven’t Covered Yet’

We’ll Always Have Amigo Tacos~: Impressions on El Cazador de la Bruja

Written by TheBigN

As it was another girls and guns show by this guy, I decided to check out El Cazador de la Bruja not really expecting anything despite the theme of the shows. Each of the previous series of this that I’ve seen from Mashimo has been interesting in some way. Noir was initially filled with a lot of wonder at what Kirika’s kill of the week was going to be (the ID card kill is still my favorite one), then at how Mireille and Kirika would solve the mysteries of the past together, and while the story fell apart at the end, I was mostly satisfied with how things went. I only saw the first couple of episodes of Madlax while the main plot hadn’t even really started kicking up, but the side stories themselves held my interest; and Avenger held it’s story togethe, though the characters felt weak as we went through the series. El Cazador didn’t have as much action or intrigue as Noir, as much mystery as Madlax, or as much cohesiveness as Avenger based on what I remember of those series (one can never tell). But apparently compared to others this happened to be my favorite of these types of shows, and probably because of it’s failure to match it’s predecessors in those areas, while being stronger on other aspects.
