So, despite having a workload that’s slowly eating away at my will to live, I’ve decided to take part in the 12 days of Christmas project, beloved by anibloggers worldwide- partly because I like to be included in this sort of thing, and partly because I write too many negative posts, and this will give me a chance to talk about some of the more pleasant anime-related shenanigans I’ve been up to this year! I’ll be posting in a chronological order, starting off with the events that happened to the start of the year, concluding with those that happened just recently, because I’m just totally OCD like that!
And what better way to start off this project than this: the debut of Watashi wa bucho!!
‘Skeptical’ is the word which best sums up my feelings when I sat down in front of my laptop and prepared myself to watch the Nazo no Kanojo X OVA. I’ve had a less than savoury experience with OVAs in the past, finding they do little to add to the show, existing mainly to provide fans with the excessive fanservice forbidden by the show either due to the time it airs on TV or by the fact they had to stay suitable for their target audience- and considering Nazo no Kanojo’s pushed boundaries within its TV show (which are always, comparatively, more reserved)… well, can you understand my cause for concern? I was also worried it wouldn’t make up for the slightly boring finale of the show, but stupid me, I should’ve learnt from experience that it’s pointless making any kind of pre-conceived assumptions when about to watch Nazo no Kanojo- ‘cause it will always end up doing something completely out of the left field! Still, there was fanservice… But that’s almost a given in OVAs today, isn’t it?
