*Totally ignoring how it’s kinda been a year. That shall be addressed later.*
CHARLOTTE. It came out this Summer season of anime, but I ended up getting distracted with the classical anime that is Detective Conan (DC) aaaaaand basically ended up totally pausing this one.
What an idiotic mistake.
Now that my winter break has started (Day one, wohoo~!), I reeeeaaaally was craving some anime, so I thought this would be as good a time as any to finish this. After all, I had seen the first four episodes and it seemed interesting.
It went from interesting, to utterly terrible- “WHY?! Why would you do this?!!”- to me, to interesting, to reeeaaaally interesting, to OH MY GOSH, THE FEELS. THE FEEEEELS. It hurt.
But anyhoo, it’s totally amazing! Before I delve into my opinion of it, I’ll just link this summary of the anime from animelist in case anyone would like to check it out. I’d definitely recommend it, especially if you like sci-fi, fantasy, slice of life, drama, etc, etc, anime~
(And emotions somewhere near that of Nagi no Asukara!)
Okay, Yu’s brother? Oh my gosh, this guy was so epic. Like, he was so amaaaaazing. For everyyything. And ugh- Kumagami! Aaaaaah/Uuuugh, whyyyy?! I was honestly not too thrilled with poor Pooh’s death, even if it was only for the sake of Mr. Awesome Time Traveling Oldie 😦
*Totally looping the op as I type this. I’m so obsessed right now.*
AND MISA. Like, can I please discuss that?!
One, when she was introduced, I loved her so damn much. Easily my favourite female character of the show (even her red haired friend- I cried watching that episode and he was only a cameo character!) and then she died- AFTER she was already dead!! I mean- “Let a dead person do what she should and die already, so I bid you farewell!” THE TEARS WON’T STOP. Misaaaa TT^TT
UGH, even the final episodes promise between Yu and Tomori! Like, I kinda find it really satisfactory that the first season ended without Tomori falling for Yu, and not really responding to his confession when he did admit his feelings for her.
Hm? Did I just mention the FIRST season as though there’s going to be another one? Weeeell….
Okay, so I have no really proof of this except THIS, but I’m hopeful ❤ Winter 2016, you better have a Charlotte Second Season, ya hear!!
Awwww, and honestly, I just love it so much, even though I’m remembering my first impressions- which I was about to dedicate a separate post to since I love it so much now, but I guess I’d rather just have it all together in one. So here goes.
Some first impressions:
(Imma just go over one major thing I remember really. That’s why it’s okay to just throw into this post! ^_^ )
What is this nostalgic No Game No Life tribute?! Okay, I realize it probably wasn’t even intended as such, BUT it’s too close!! NGNL is still at the back of my mind every time I see a scene like this. And who is who when I see the flashback of that brilliant op? Obviously Yu is Sora, but does that make…Tomori Shiro..? Unacceptable. Just- hell no.
For so many reasons. Although, it’s pretty evident I didn’t like Tomori at all in the beginning of the show, but now, she’s not just tolerable, she’s okay. Sure, I’m still not a fan. I mean, no chick can beat Misa in this anime. Nor could anyone beat her up 😛
And fangirling over Misa’s red haired comrade~
That’s it for first impressions.
Okaaaay, then there’s the Charlotte comet thing- I reaaally liked that touch. Very nicely done. Add a flair of sci-fi to the show.
Alriiiightie. Imma take a break to calm my heart, listen to some more of the op, and then get back to dealing with this blahg! I mean, come on, I’ve missed this and this is probably why I’ll end up writing like four different posts tonight :3
