I could take this opportunity to glorify myself, but I’ll let you handle that in the comments. Instead, I’m going to pimp three underappreciated anime series I reviewed back in Season 1.
What do the following shows have in common, other than the fact that I single-handedly popularized both of them? Oops, I said I wouldn’t glorify myself.
I watched both of them because of Touch. Touch taught me that slice-of-life anime can actually be good (Aria). It also taught me that Central-Anime subs some kickass shows (LotGH).
It was the first anime review I wrote. It also inspired a series of monster-with-no-name comics. If you’re one of my fans who hasn’t seen Monster, yet you complain that I don’t review enough “good” anime, kindly take a moment to punch yourself in the solar plexus.
Then go watch Monster.
The most thought-provoking anime I’ve ever seen. And I don’t mean thought-provoking in the bullshit philosophical sense. I’m talking physics, i.e., thought that’s valuable to society and actually requires intelligence. Also, this series epitomizes a term I’ve been throwing around for years: comical victimization. When it comes to seeing half-naked girls in humorously painful situations, this is the cream of the crop. Caution: may contain sex, drugs, and extreme graphic violence.
Three years down, and according to this hacked road sign in Indiana, there’s plenty more to come.
Apparently Indiana is so boring that people hack road signs for fun.
Note: just because we both have MAL accounts doesn’t mean I’m your friend. You may use my MAL page for business purposes, such as recommending anime and manga. If it becomes a hotspot for small talk and gossip, I’ll delete my account and incinerate my hard drive.
