Opening: “Pursuit of Happiness” by Kid CuDi

SUMMARY:
As is tradition, The Other Side takes another look at another season of anime. The Spring 2014 season can only be described as a cesspool. One of the worst seasons we’ve gotten in awhile. But one show dares to look this garbage in the face and say “I shall entertain”. The Other Side, of course, puts this pandering, substanceless garbage through the ringer, while propping up that lone oasis. And while they do that, Cody makes Andrew feel uncomfortable when Max is away, and the boys at The Other Side shill for Loadout!

    The characters from the ping pong anime actually look like they could conceivably be Japanese.

    Cardfight Vanguard is like Free! but with card games. It’s about some guy with the most generic name ever (Kai) searching for “mates”, people who remember a mary sue that was suddenly erased from existence because plot. And during card fights, Kai looks deep into the eyes of his opponent and says “Yes, you are also his mate.”

    I can’t decide if it’s the dumbest or funniest thing ever.

    So wait, Kamigami no Asobi is basically a show about Chris-chan’s Dating Education?

    The cool thing about Precure is that the transformation sequences are totally modest and age appropriate and the series is devoid of any kind of fanservice. Unfortunately, since it’s basically the Japanese MLP. As in it’s a long-running series with a very visible and obvious target demographic, who’s fanbase has been completely overtaken by sad, lonely otaku that fap over it. All I want to do is look up pretty pictures of the characters and I get porn. It makes me fucking sick.

    I am all for breaking target demographics and enjoying what you want, but there’s a marked difference in using it as an escapism from your shitty life/ masturbating to the candy-colored singing and dancing character and enjoying a show for what it is.

    That being said, Happiness Charge isn’t going to be as good as HeartCatch.

    im curious about what comes after obliterated………………….atomized?, sucked into a black hole?, Alucarded?(ok the last one may be stupidly written but I couldn’t come up with a better phrase for an encounter with alucard.)

  • Emblyon

    break blade/broken blade is actually surprisingly good.
    the anime is a remake of the original ova.

  • Emblyon

    please don’t bring Britain into this

  • Normality

    I am legitimately surprised you guys didn’t mention “Kenzen Robo Daimialer”.

    Heard this cover song of Space Dandy’s ED a few weeks ago. I don’t usually go out of my way to hear German covers of anime songs, but this is pretty good in my opinion.

    Noticed a mention of Shimajiro here. He of course is the sort of mascot for a company named Benesse Corporation. The character along has shown up in all sorts of videos over the past couple decades I think, notably educational materials. One such video that made it’s way on the net was a toilet training one where he had to go do #1 and #2 with his parents being there to sing a stupid song at him. If you need to see what I’m talking about…

      Ah, yes, I’ve seen those. I can only assume this movie he’s in will have nothing to do with shitting, so it should be something nice and adorable for the kids without any awkwardness.

      • Chris Sobieniak

        It should be, don’t let the internet say otherwise since most people’s thoughts of this character tend to go back to that same clip over and over. This is definitely pre-schooler material like anything else.
