The Anime Music Tournament 2013 Bracket Lina – Round 1 – Polls 1-8 “Analysis”

By TheBigN

I’d try to make an “Inverse” joke here, but I don’t really feel up to it today. Instead, here is another set of two polls of interesting songs in the tournament, that starts of with an interesting bang, I think.

The Anime Music Tournament 2013 Bracket Jigglypuff – Round 1 – Polls 1-8 “Analysis”

Given the nature of the Pokemon, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was a sleep-inducing bracket on initial glance. Thankfully, this is not the case, as the two polls here keep things lively in a good way. Continue reading ‘The Anime Music Tournament 2013 Bracket Jigglypuff – Round 1 – Polls 1-8 “Analysis”’

Entranced By The Sound Of Many Voices

By TheBigN

The ED of Nichijou, “Zzz”, is one of my favorites of the season, with its combination of what I find to be “adorable” animation of Yuuko and Nano with no noticeable outlines walking and skipping to a general pop song that’s easy on the ears, along with an imaginary dream-like world along the way. However, the song isn’t one that easily stays on the ears by itself. At least until episode 7, where they decide remove most of the instrumentals, and just let Sayaka Sasaki‘s voice do the talking:

The Trump Cards Nichijou Holds For Me

I was planning on watching Nichijou anyway, since the premise of the show with their comedic focus tends to be stuff that pique my interest. After watching the first episode, the humor is more or less hit or miss (more hit than miss so far), but the pacing of those jokes are quick enough that if one joke doesn’t work, it’s alright because it’s over quickly and chances the are that the next joke will be funny. The jokes and the characters themselves if you take them as they are so far won’t make this a memorable work for me, since as others have said, the concept has been done over and over again. That being said, what’s more important is less the fact that they reuse ideas, but how it’s done. In that sense, presentation plays a big part in our reception to this apparent variation of a “standard”, and Nichijou has those for me in the show’s animation and background music.
