Terror in Resonance

Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo) is on a tear of late, and here’s yet another anime series from him, Terror in Resonance (Zankyo no Terror). Surprise, surprise, it’s pretty much impossible to tell where this is going based on just the first episode, but I’m definitely intrigued, and looking forward to seeing where they go with it. The very beginning points to a terrorist plot, and then we follow two very young guys (teenagers) who slowly go about threatening and blowing up a building in Shinjuku. But this is all done in an almost comical – or at least, nonchalant – way. Hmmm…

Space Dandy

Shinichiro Watanabe’s new series, Space Dandy, has started, and although I wasn’t particularly excited by the trailers, I was still going to watch this because it’s by Watanabe. After one episode, although I loved the crazy sudden ending, I’m not that sold on the setting and especially the main characters – not getting a Cowboy Bebop or Samurai Champloo vibe at all. But like I said, it’s Watanabe, so I’ll give the series at least a few episodes to see if it develops into something that’s more interesting. And I’m all for sexiness in any form of media, but this “Boobies” stuff just feels juvenile – I’m hoping the show starts to leave that stuff behind.
