My favorite anime of 2014

2014 is finally behind us and I finally have the spare time to write this. There were lots of pretty good anime last year but these are the ones that really stood out in my opinion. So without further ado, here’s the bunch of anime last year that I think are the best of the best.

Today is year 2015. Where are the Angels?

Miku Hatsune now one step closer to Sharon Apple

Back then I wrote a post about how Macross could have foresaw the future with the introduction of the concept of a virtual idol, made real today by vocaloids. Slowly but surely everybody even to people outside of the anime community are being made aware of the concept of the virtual idol with Miku Hatsune performing in sold out concerts and just recently, appearing on the Tonight Show with David Letterman.

Tetsuya Nomura, famous for being the character designer of various Square-Enix games such as the ever popular Final Fantasy series, drew Miku Hatsune to look more real which is a step away from Miku’s usual moe appeal. The result was for me was really awesome.

With Miku now looking more human-like, Miku Hatsune is now one step closer to Sharon Apple. Perhaps in the future, everybody around the world would be open to the idea of a virtual songstress just like in Macross Plus.

Watching Genshiken Nidaime first episode and reminiscing about my anime org memories

I’ll say this: one of the very few things that made my college life bearable back then was being a member of the college anime org.

Yes, it’s the same name as of the anime. The name feels kinda unoriginal but seeing the anime org that I’m a part of through the years, the org name is very fitting as it feels very much like Genshiken.

Secret Santa 2012 – Bartender

This is my first time participating in this anime blog Secret Santa project. For those of you who are wondering, the Secret Santa project is something put together by the guys at Reverse Thieves where bloggers submit their names and recommend 3 series to a randomly assigned blogger as well as anonymously receive 3 suggestions and out of those 3 suggestions we pick one title.

For my first Secret Santa experience, I present to you… Bartender. This is something I’ve been meaning to watch for the longest time but don’t get the chance to do so because I have a lot of stuff to do. I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about this anime and this Secret Santa has just given me the push to start watching this anime. The other choice I contemplated on picking was Kaiba, which I will be watching at a later time, while I didn’t consider picking up the Macross 7 movie because I wanted to try something different from what I usually watch.
