:::Fall Season 2010::: Recommendations

Hey everyone! I'm sure you guys don't want to get left behind this season without knowing what to watch, so I have some quick recommendations for you based on what I've seen in the first few episodes and what looks promising.

(Note: May include 1st episode spoilers)


First off is Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai (The World God Only Knows) which is about a guy who's a master at dating sims games and can conquer any 2D girl... but how well does he fair in real life? Well, he hasn't tried...

But when suddenly he accepts a challenge a "demon" girl who looks more like an angel flys down from the sky and tells him that he needs to free the loose demon souls trapped in some girls' hearts by making the girl create a space for him in their heart so the demon has no where to go.

Unique right? It has a very refreshing feel and the production and music is very nice. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes a comedy romance. I would say it gives me a sort of Angel Beats vibe, so if you liked it you may like this as well.

Next up is Shinryaku! Ika Musume (Invasion! Squid Girl) which is about a squid girl who is enraged with mankind for polluting the water. She surfaces with her super powered tentacle-hair and attempts to take over the world. Little does she know that mankind is more than 1000 people ^^.

Join Ika Musume in this hilarious comedy/slice of life!

It's sure to warm your spirits :)




Next up is something I was skeptical about at first: Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai (My Little Sister Can't Be This Cute). At first I thought it might be very ecchi+ but then I found out it was a lot more comfortable to watch than I thought and no ecchi-ness at all. I was glad it was just a tease and much more pure than it seems =P. If you're wondering why I started watching it anyway it's because I looked up the ratings and it seemed safe--but I wasn't sure if I could trust it--but now I'm sure I can ^^.

What's it like?
This anime gives me a sort of Minami-Ke / Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu feel in that it has spontaneous comical moments with a fun and happy production style and she has a secret from her family: that she's an otaku tsundere. If you're a fan of comedy and secrecy-based-suspense animes you'll definitely enjoy this one =P

Yet another recommendation (yes, this season looks promising =P) is Bakuman! The first episode really caught my attention and now I'm hooked o.O... And although I haven't read the manga like a few of my friends, I can tell that it's going to be great.

So this anime is about two guys who are going to follow their dreams to become manga-ka despite what society has to say about them. They're going to push away the negativity and look forward to their goals. What makes this anime more interesting is that the girl the main character, Mashiro Moritaka, had a crush on agreed to marry him if their manga turns into an anime. What more motivation could you ask for? =P.

Join Mashiro and his friend, Takagi, on the journey to their dreams! :)

And as a final recommendation, I introduce MM!

This is about a hilarious comedy of a seriously masochistic guy who's trying to cure this condition so that when he confesses to the girl he likes she won't look at him like a freak.

He asks a club called the "Second Volunteer Club" for help, who aim to grant any wish or help solve any problem to their guests.

The funny part is that everyone thinks he's a pervert because he keeps asking other people to hit him more and as they do he gets turned on even more and it goes in this vicious cycle that's very humorous =P.

So will his condition be cured by lethal force? You'll have to watch MM! to find out =P.

So that's my fall season recommendations, I hope you guys check these out and decide to keep up this season because it's going to be great! :)

Well that's all for today! If something changes (such as the ratings) I'll be updating this post, so check back! :)

Thanks for reading ^^

Welcome to
The Otaku Reviewers



This blog, "The Otaku Reviewers", was started in February of 2010 on this very same platform, Blogger. At first, it was a venture into the informational and informal world of comics, anime, video games, and Japanese culture. In other words, just a random blog.

Over time, the founder of the blog credited with the pseudonym "RPGhero" was joined by two fellow bloggers and friends with the names "Chansu" and "Deretsun". Together the three bloggers looked up interesting Japanese culture facts, recommended new anime, talked about their own "otaku" interests, and traveled across the United States to various anime conventions.

There have been off periods when the blog ceased production of content and there have been times when there would be dozens of blog posts per week. The schedule varies depending on the lives of the people behind the alias'. However the pattern is that we always get back into the game with even newer information about Japanese culture, anime, video games, and other nerdy hobbies.

The motto of our blog is:
"A cure for your apathy and an inspiration for your dreams. ...Applies to Otaku, anime fans, J-pop junkies, and the like"

The purpose is to blog about cool stuff related solely to anime and otaku stuff. There's no other reason we're doing this.

If you like our blog, please support us in however small a way that you would like. We appreciate our readers!
