Quick Thoughts: it’s a bit upsetting how Karneval doesn’t have that IMPACT in each episode but still make me want more. The ‘mystery’ or suspense in the series doesn’t get any better but is still interesting enough to keep me on my seat and finish the entire episode enjoying its beautiful visuals and sexy character voices. With not much development on either Nai and Gareki or even on other characters, Karneval is still a series I’m looking forward to seeing a bit more improvements later on in the season. More of my thoughts here. Continue reading
Looks like Karneval will never fail to look as fancy and flashy as the first episode. Similar to how Karneval started, this second episode was able to successfully follow up its flashy shounen style. The introduction of Yogi (Miyano Mamoru) finally gave Karneval a lighter feel to the series after those serious fight scenes. more of my impression here… Continue reading
Quick Impression: To my expectations, Karneval certainly didn’t let me down with its action pack first episode and the introduction of Nai (Shimono Hiro), Gareki (Kamiya Hiroshi), Tsukumo (Endou Aya) and Hirato (Ono Daisuke). I really like the opening scene of Nai and Karoku (Hoshi Souichirou). Their relationship will probably one of the key points in this series since Nai is in search for Karoku to begin with. Aside from the story, what also captured me in Karneval is its outstanding set of cast and really beautiful art and animation. That flawless fight scene at the train as well as Gareki and Nai’s escape from the mansion were both really great.
All in all, Karneval has really proven itself (to me) worth watching. Being the series I looked forward to the most this season, I’m glad that Karneval didn’t failed my expectations and brought a nicely paced opening episode with those fabulous looking characters in a shounen-like series. Now I really can’t wait for the next episode. Yogi will be introduced :3
Quick Impression: For some reasons, this episode didn’t felt as good as the previous two. Or was I just getting too much shoujo this season that I’m starting to compare them? Whatever the reason is, I’m starting to get tired of Mei’s character. Turns out she’s not my type of heroine for a shoujo series. Well. Wait, turns out their relationship and their characters (Tachibana Mei and Kurosawa Yamato) aren’t entirely my type of characters. I’d say that at some point, it’s starting to slide down on me. The characters are somehow getting into. We definitely need more Asamicchi and Nakanishi!! Although the overall shoujo feel to it still seems pretty good. I sure do hope that things will get better in the future because somehow, I’m getting the feeling that Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun is actually better than this. More of my impression here.

Quick Impression: This episode just came by so fast. In a good way of course. I really like the development between Asamicchi and Nakanishi. The rumor that’s going around regarding Yamato sure is rich but I highly doubt that it’s true. I bet people just made it up. As for his relationship with Arai-san, it’s obvious that he doesn’t really like her anymore. That last scene was just really epic. I liked it and I definitely like Mei’s comment more. It made me laugh. Seriously. More of my impression here. Continue reading
Quick Impression: After watching this episode, I have to say that this is already one of my fave series this season. Yeah, I’m just a typical shoujo-romance jerk. I like shoujo-male leads because they’re there to make girls feel so fancy. HAHA. Anyway, this series definitely smells like drama with little comedy. It gives me the Kimi ni Todoke feel despite having that big difference. More of my impression here… Continue reading
