First Thoughts: 2011 Spring Anime Season Part 1

I'm glad that the new spring season is here. Before I get to the topic of the new season, I want to explain why I did not do a post on my final thoughts on the previous winter season. Because of the earthquake that happened in Japan, releases of some anime have been scattered. It would not be fair to comment on series that have not ended. Today I'm going to cover Nichijou, Hanasaku Iroha, and Ore-tachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai.


Nichijou is this surreal slice of life anime by Kyoto Animation. At first, I was just expecting a bland high school anime that follows the lives of cute girls doing cute thing, but with pretty animation. I was wrong because this show is funny because of the surreal elements that it has. One example of surreal elements this anime is a robot that could be mistaken for a human because she feels pain, has emotions, and it is self aware. However, she has a giant winding key on her back. I recommend this anime because of the humor.

Hanasaku Iroha is another slice of life anime by P.A. Works. This anime looks beautiful and the animation is stunning. At first, I was not going to watch this anime but, a lot of people where praising it. I decided to watch the first episode and I'm glad that I did. I highly recommend this anime to everyone.

Ore-tachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai is weird. It first starts out as harem anime but, then it becomes this college aged slice of life anime, and it ends as a fantasy anime. This anime is based off of a series of visual novel by Navel, the same company that made Shuffle! As of right now, the plot is a mess because did doesn't know what it want to be. Now that I said that, maybe it would make some sense if I would have played the 3 visual novels. The only reason I would recommend this anime is for the fan service.
So, what are your opinions on these anime series from the new spring season?
