all right, time to shovel off the last few scraps of the '95 plate
as usual, i don't have a lot to say about any of this stuff, because it's mostly just random garbage that nobody else likes either, yet i'm still obligated to watch in order for me to be able to say "i've seen every anime ever made"
Nurse Angel Ririka SOS (Studio Gallop, 1995, two episodes) I wish I had more to say about these dumb mahou shoujo shows, but they just never offer me very much. 4/10
Catnapped! (Studio Hibari, 1995, completed) This is one of the most obnoxious things I've ever seen, but I'd be lying if I didn't at least somewhat appreciate the imaginative visuals to SOME degree. 2/10
Neighborhood Story (Toei, 1995, one episode) More of the same bullshit, but credit where credit's due to the art style, which is fairly unique by anime standards. You can still tell it was made in Japan, but it's kind of striking all the same. 3/10
Galaxy Fraulein Yuna (J.C.Staff, 1995, one episode) I am now watching OVAs that were released and made to be watched exclusively on old PC-ROM games that nobody played in the mid-90s. I have officially lost control of my life. 2/10
Mahou Shoujo Pretty Sammy (AIC, 1995, one episode) This one's kinda interesting. It's an OVA that "recasts" characters from the Tenchi Muyo! series, giving them entirely different roles in a totally disconnected(?) show. Almost as if they weren't just cartoons, but real people playing characters. I've never seen anything like that before. Points for originality, I suppose. 3/10
Battle Skipper (Artmic, 1995, one episode) The only thing I'm skipping here is the rest of this OVA. 1/10
Hyper Doll (Triangle Staff, 1995, one episode) 1/10
Sorcerer Hunters (Xebec, 1995, one episode) 1/10
Kouryuu no Mimi: Mina no Shou (Unknown studio, 1995, one episode) 1/10
Gotou ni Naritai. (Unknown studio, 1995, completed) 4/10
the last things i have to watch now from this year:
Virtua Fighter. I'm saving this one for last, because not only is it based on one of my all-time favorite fighting game franchises, it was also released on my birthday. And it doesn't even look half-bad, honestly. So hopefully, by watching this one last, I'll have ended 1995 on a positive note.
Red Hawk - Weapon Of Death. This is a movie, and it looks very very bad, so I've been putting it off for a long time.
Neon Genesis Evangelion + Death & Rebirth + End of Evangelion. Given that many people still regard Eva as one of the most important shows ever, if not the best ever created, I'm not opposed to giving it another chance. I didn't watch either of the two films last time, because I simply didn't care to, but I'll go ahead and watch them too. I definitely don't expect to completely turn around on this show, having disliked it initially, but it certainly wouldn't hurt to get to the bottom of why people seem to like it so much.
And then Majackou, Gunsmith Cats, The Silent Service, Gakkou no Yuurei, and Shin Kaitei Gunkan.
Then I move on to 1996.
