There seem to be an embarrassment of riches this spring and pardon the un-seriousness nature of this post. Or maybe it is serious… very serious. It seems there are quite a few new anime that are heavy on the hot anime characters. Now each of them have their own issues and if you just want to stare at hot guys you can watch them all… granted some have more plot than others… However, is this a blessing or a curse?
Butlers X Battlers
Being only two episodes in this one I think shows a bit of a promise of a plot. There seems to be some time travel things thrown in as well, along with the multiple males. This is one that I am still watching since it seems to have a prettying interesting set up and I still want to know the roles of the butlers and what happened to the mc’s sister. I am hoping there is no weird relationships there, but there are never any promises in anime. Also what world is this where your brothers become your butler? This seems to be any younger sisters dream who had their older brothers pick on them ;). In the end there is are a lot of boys to look at here so you can pretty much take your pick.
This is a nice calming anime that will make you hungry… For food… Get your mind out of the gutter… ;). Each episode seems to have its own individual plot and problems to solve. There is nothing better than men in traditional garb to help out people with their problems. This one also seems to have more of a plot than others, but there is no story arc as of yet. I think this one would be hard to marathon because it is so calming to watch you may fall asleep. Not because it’s bad, but it’s just relaxing. Men who can cook and who are gentlemen. This one is also another feast for the eyes.
Libra of Nil Admirari
This was one that I was pretty excited about. I loved how the art style looked a bit like old art sketches. Then as I was watching I realized that this was based on an otome game. There is nothing wrong with that… But sometimes when these games get turned into anime there is a huge plot deficit. So far it is pretty bland with a few pick up lines here and there that are… interesting… “Let me be your lover” okay then… Backs away slowly. I think I would rather play the game than watch the anime, but if you are just looking for an anime to look at the art style is very nice in my opinion, but that is all it has going for it. The anime I was looking forward too is pretty lacking with plot and romance so far. Which is sad the concept of the cursed tomes is pretty cool sounding, but this is a case where too many men hurt the plot since there is not focus on character so they are all kind of potato like… Also the OP is just bizarre.
Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These
I debated putting this one in since it is more of a battle anime, but but but- there are like a gazillion men in this… Just look in the closing credits and you see like two women. So it is packed full of military men if that is your thing. Also the plot seems to be getting very interesting. In the last episode it was mostly backstory, but it added depth to the mc plan to take over the empire. The art is very nice and if you are like me you watch and pretend that the blond and the red head are secretly lovers. Shhh no judgement here…
Kakuriyo – Bed & Breakfast for Spirits –
Okay this one… I’m still warming up to it. There is not a pack of men like in the previously mentioned anime, but there two very nice looking ones. So you know… This one so far has still got me interested the characters were a bit of a slow start, but I thing the ogre character will start to show more depth the farther we go into the anime. Also I’m still team fox all the way. It has to do with the past anime I’ve been watching haha. This one will have a bit more romance. The others seem to be lacking romance even with all the men. So this might be your choice if you want to actually see something develop. Also the female character is older which I’m a fan of older characters (these guys are probably super old) like her. It doesn’t seem as creepy since she is out of high school… Or is it? Who knows.
So there you go! There is a few feasts for the eyes this season. Now, if I had to pick a romantic pick out of all of these… I would say none. My romantic winner so far has been…
Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku
This one is only two episodes in and I’m loving it. The awkwardness is so dang cute. I love the characters and I think this one may be one of my top picks for the spring so far… More on this one later. The two guys in here are very good looking and if you got a thing for nerds… Here you go!
Any special choices for your male picks this spring? Or did you skip these all together? You know I don’t remember a season with so many anime having so many men… We might as well take advantage of it.
Very Happy Watching!
