Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren
Episodes Watched: 3
This is easily my favorite anime of the season. It has everything that I want: unique story, great characters, comedy, and finally an anime that takes a relationship past the initial confession. I can't stress enough how rare it is to see an anime that shows the actual relationship develop despite how successful it has been (e.g. Mysterious Girlfriend X). I was afraid that the second season wouldn't hold up to the first, but so far its blown past my expectations with flying colors. The relationship between the Dark Flame Master and Wicked Eye is one of the best romances in anime and this season is just bringing out the best of the two. I think it's following the same pattern of having a happy-go-lucky feel at the start, then hitting hard toward the end so I'm curious to see what that story twist is going to be. If you haven't watched the first season it's a must see especially now a second has been released. Definitely worth picking up this season for any fans of the first season.

Buddy Complex

 

Story so far: Our protagonist’s future self sends his past self a girl and he even time traveled to the future.
Episodes seen as of the writing: 1/12

Impression:
One of my favorite plot device is time traveling and if done right would leave a very deep impression on the viewers (specially now that they’ve mixed it with mecha). In the pilot episode of Buddy Complex, it seems like this series is going in the right direction. I think there were promising/possible foreshadowing that really made me want to watch the next episode. If the writers of this series are good, they’ll be able to justify what they’ve shown in this episode and will make its viewers go: “Ahhhh so this is why this is (insert name)’s reaction” or “So this is what happened”. It’ll be really awesome if I would re-watch this series I would get a different reaction/feels. So far, the time traveling revelation gave more questions than answers: “Why did Hina disappeared half way?”, “Why did Aoba woke up in a machine different from the one he rode on?”, “Why did that crazy guy want to kill Aoba?”, “Base from the OP sequence, why does it seems like Hina would become Aoba’s enemy?”. Holy sheez, I want to find out the answer to those questions.

To tell you guys the truth, my logical mind says that the opening act was very cliché but the emotional side says otherwise cause I find the Hina x Aoba relationship very natural and I find myself rooting for them. I just hope that this series won’t forget to tackle the romance and time traveling side of the story as the first arc would seem to focus on the meeting with Dio and the introduction of the future world. Btw I’m looking forward to that Dio Coupling thing (I think I smell yaoi in here lol) cause that might be one badass mecha fight special move.
