Unlimited Fafnir + Seiken Tsukai no World Break = Dropped.

Still trying some new series to see if there’s anything worth following, but I don’t think I’m going to find anything else. When you get this far in anime-watching there’s a lot of “been there, seen that” out there, and there’s no reason to force myself to try anything less than arresting when my backlog keeps growing every day.

Unlimited Fafnir – Monsters appeared out of nowhere and only kids with special powers can fight them. Kantai Collection has pretty much the same premise, and while I haven’t seen Attack on Titan, doesn’t that also have to do with fighting giant world-destroying monsters? And that’s not even going back in history to look at the Evangelions and Rahxephons.

But I didn’t drop it because of the lack of originality (which I don’t really care about, TBH), I dropped it because five minutes after the show started, the main character walked onto a beach to find a naked girl bathing there. “Oh, it’s going to be one of those shows, is it?” I thought. And as I suspected, right after the credits there were more comical hijinks involving said naked girl and so I closed the episode barely 7 minutes into the show. Dropped with extreme prejudice.

Seiken Tsukai no World Break – Magic high school series with kids in touch with their past lives or something like that. The action-packed first few minutes were intriguing, but I dropped it halfway through episode 1 because the characters were annoying. Some loud-mouthed girl with a brocon fetish who can talk a good game but can’t back it up and a milquetoast main character whose face I had to look online to remember and some other girls who will probably all be interested in main guy. Blah. There are better series out there, I’m convinced of that, so dropped.
