Anime Review Spring 2010 Season: A Recap

Anime Review Spring S010 Season:
A Recap

Well, it took about six weeks, but I finished what I set out to do. At the beginning of April, I pledged to watch and review each anime show of the Spring 2010 season that was subtitled in English, and give each one a pass/fail grade.

Out of the few dozen shows, I was able to find 32 different shows that were subtitled. Out of those thirty-two, a total of 10 shows received a thumbs up (one of which I dropped after the second episode). Here is a really quick recap of the reviewed shows:

Highest recommendation: MUST SEE TV!:

None! Not a single show gets an unconditional thumbs-up.


Kaichou wa Maid-sama, The Tatami Galaxy, and Shoka (one-shot special)

Slightly recommended:

Working!!, Angel Beats, and K-On Season 2

On The Fence: - Watching for now, but I may drop before the series completes.

Arakawa Under the Bridge, Giant Killing, and House of Five Leaves

Slight Thumbs-Down: - Includes shows that may be decent by not within my interests, or shows that I might be convinced to give a second shot if enough people recommend them.

Heroman, Hakuouki Shinsengumi Kitan, Senkou no Night Raid, Ookiku Furikabutte Season 2, Rainbow Roukubou no Shinichin, Jewel Pet Tinkle, Tales of Symphonia: Tethe'alla, Yutori-chan, and Magic Kaito

Thumbs-Down: - Terrible, just terrible.

B Gata H Kei, Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou, Mayoi Neko Overrun, Uraboku, Hime-chen Otogi Chikku Ido Lilpri, Ikkitousen Xtreme Xecutor, Hetalia World Series, Haiyori Nyaru-ani, and Major Season 6

Oh Dear God Why Does This Even Exist? - You watched it, now you can't unwatch it!

KissXSis and SD Gundam Senshi Sangokuden Battle Brave Warriors

Explicit Yaoi/Boys-Love: - There's a special place in Hell for these shows

Sex Pistols and Kachou no Koi

...And finally, the Wild Cardz Memorial Prize for the Worst Show of the Season goes to...

Shin Koihime Mousou Otogi Tairan!

There's still a bunch of shows that were never subtitled, but there's still a chance some of them might see the (English) light of day. These include: Hana Kappa-kun, Ring ni Kakero, Marie and Gali vers. 2.0, Ketsu-Inu, Metal Beyblade Baku, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Anime Conference on the Environment, Armored Trooper Votoms Gene-ei Hen, xxxHolic Rou, Bakugan New Vestroia, Black Rock Shooter, among others.

And I've wrapped up the initial reviews of the Spring 2010 Season just in time -- the Summer 2010 Season is just around the corner! So, What Do You Think, Sirs? Sigh. Push the Button, Frank.
