TPAB’s Top 100: Anime Moments of 2012 Part IV

This is the last part of our look back at 2012. Those moments that defined the anime experience, those scenes that you just can’t get enough of and those events that’ll stick with you forever. We started with Shining Hearts and Tony Taka’s awesome character design, talked about some great anime moments like Gin and Futayo kicking ass, talked about worst ones like the disturbing beach episode from Another and there are also a lot of kissing moments that I am too ashamed to admit. We have reached the top twenty five now and these moments are truly the ones that made the whole anime experience of 2012 an amazing ride. Have you seen your favorite moments yet? Maybe they’re in this one. Maybe not. I’m not exactly the kind of blogger that goes with the flow so some of these moments may not even cross your mind.

TPAB’s Top 100: Anime Moments of 2012 Part III

This is the third part and we are halfway through the countdown. I made the list four parts simply because I am intimidated by it all. I can combine them in one giant post but the amount of GIFs and those stupid pictures I had to make takes a lot of time. Dividing the load was the best thing to do. Anyways, I’ve covered a good amount of anime thus far from popular ones like Little Busters to very obscure ones like Ebiten. This was really my anime journey combined in a list. I’ve seen all of these anime and I have a high tolerance for things other people dismiss so I’ve been able to experience a lot of great anime moments as I blog as TPAB. The bottom half is already done and I hope the moments that got into the top fifty are some that I hope you all enjoyed as well.

Daily Lives of High School Boys Review

Hello. This is my sixth review. I’m here to review another comedy anime. Before I dive in, I want to talk about the K-on effect. I made the word up but ever since this damn anime took notoriety, quality in anime significantly drops. A lot of studios followed the same path of K-on hoping to cash in on the anime’s hype. After K-on, a lot of copy cats came like Hyakko, A-channel and Yuru Yuri. All of these titles are different but they share one annoying detail. They are about everyday life of four girls in school. The K-on effect is annoying as hell. I’ll expand on it another day in another blog.

People seem to forget that before K-on was released by KyoAni, they had another four girl anime. It relies on comedy rooted from everyday life and the interaction of the girls. Crap, that sounds like K-on. No, I’m talking about Lucky Star. Forget it? That anime established K-on so imagine an anime with the same format but the characters are all boys.

I know it’s a stretch but, to me, that is Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou. It’s a twelve anime episode about the everyday life of high school boys. It’s pretty unique but oddly familiar.
