2014-2015 Winter Anime Season Wrap Up Part 3

I wrote that I would discuss Rolling Girls and Yoru no Yatterman.
With Rolling Girls I made it to episode 5. Why did I not finish this series? The last episode I watched just didn’t call me back to watch another one. I like the character designs in the beginning. I even enjoyed the story line, in the beginning. But when they got to the Big City (Always Comina) something happened to the series. I like the idea of the two gangs fighting each other. Another plus for the series is that it was produced by Wit Studio. In the past I have enjoyed what they have put out. So what happened with this title? They gave us Attack on Titan, Hozuki no Reitetsu and for this 2015 Spring Anime season favorite Seraph of the End. The director for the series Kotomi Deai has worked on previous titles that I have enjoyed. But this is their second turn as series director. This series looks like it was an original story for anime with the manga coming later. After writing this blog would I consider going back and finishing the remaining episodes? No. Will I regret this decision? Probably not, life is too short to regret animes a person doesn’t finish.
Now on to another title that I didn’t finish, though I did get further with this one. And that one would be Yoru no Yatterman. With this title I got through eight of the twelve episodes. I was so close to the end. Why didn’t I finish? Because I didn’t think it was going end well. As it was planned for twelve episodes, after the first five episodes it seemed that the series was going to fall off the rails. The story line wasn’t advancing. Plus the series was starting to remind me a lot of Sekai Seifuku: Bouryaku no Zvezda in its art and story line. And I didn’t know if I wanted to go there again. Okay I’ll be honest. The title started to bore me. It didn’t call me back to watch what was going to happen next. The story line was just going in circles. If it looked like our heroes were advancing just a little I would have watched till the end. The problem I had with this title was that there wasn’t going to be an end to the series. Though I have to say that I really like the character design. There was something really pleasing about it. That was the same reason I stuck with Sekai Seifuku: Bouryaku no Zvezda till the end (and was disappointed). Maybe that is why I didn’t feel the desire to finish Yoru no Yatterman.

So this concludes my discussion about what I bailed on. Tomorrow I’ll write start writing about the titles that I really like from the Winter season. Again, I hope you enjoy my ruminations.
