Zetsuen no Tempest

Posted by xccj , in TV Nov 24 2012 · 330 views

Hey another anime entry from a guy who's getting into this but is still a newby to the whole American fanbase culture. Take it as you like, here are my thoughts.

If you don't trust the future

Continue with that force

What is left to learn now

So do it

And when you look there's someone

That's running by my side

Spirit inspiration

No I can't lose

So the latest Anime that I started following is Zetsuen no Tempest. The anime itself is intriguing. I like the basic plot, although the magic side is a little odd. The characters are great tho, and at the very least the fights in the first couple of episodes were awesome.

But I also like the intro song. What caught me off guard was that it's in ENGLISH! Craziness! (I assume its not just an english dub, cause they usually don't do that for the songs, and I did some searching and the English version was all I found. And yes, I do prefer subtitles over dubs.) At first it seemed a little off because it doesn't quite have the flow of an english song, but the beat is catchy enough that I found it and added it to my song collection.

I've actually done this with a few other anime songs, so I'm slowly building up a playlist where I don't actually understand all the lyrics. But hey the tunes are catchy enough that I can enjoy them. Funnily enough, I started doing this a couple of weeks before I first heard Gangnam Style on the radio, and although he's not Japanese, I still find similarities to enjoying a song that has Asian-language lyrics.

And I've been trying to follow some other Animes. One of my favorites is still Sword Art Online, and I like the plot of the second half of the season. I have also enjoyed Magi, where the story is very well done, and Robotics; Notes, which started out kind of tame but now has this awesome mystery / conspiracy tone to it.

I've also been following HTTYD and Ninjago, which have been fun. HTTYD is fairly enjoyable even if it is aimed at a younger audience, and still makes me laugh. (Although the music isn't as epic as the movie's.) I'm sad Ninjago ended, but it was a fairly good ending that wrapped up the series pretty well. Not sure if I'll be as into Chima, but I'll give it a chance. And for non-animated TV, I'm only following Arrow and Grimm, which are okay but I think there aren't any new episodes coming out soon.

I'd say suggest some anime I should look into, but... well, I have plenty for now. Right now, I'm watching about one twenty minute episode per night from various series, so that works with my sorta-busy schedule. But I'll be needing more stuff to watch come December when I get to recover from a surgery, so I'll need good material to watch then. (Currently planning to rewatch LotR, Indiana Jones, BttF, PotC, and any other good trilogies we happen to own.) ;)

That's frightening on a whole different level.

...Zetsuen No Tempest and Sword Art Online are the only two anime I've been keeping up with lately.

What specifically are you refering to, cause there are multiple parts of that entry that could potentially strike fear into the hearts of lesser beings. :P

Basically this entire entry, though more specifically because you mentioned the only two anime I'm currently watching.
