On Sunday, ended up getting caught up on a lot of 1st episodes of the new anime season… Many I surprisingly liked, only one I tried to nod off during. The first was A Certain Scientific Railgun (Season 3); I’m like it better than the last season of A Certain Magical Index (which I got lost in; too much politics, too many characters). Then I followed it up with Infinite Dendrogram — little bit of a SAO rip-off, but I still enjoyed it. The third was Uchitama?! Have you Seen my Tama? — which I thought was going to be too cutesy, to the point of being annoyed, but really enjoyed the transition between dog/cat to human & the animators really nailed the animal behaviors. Next was Hetena Illusion — which I thought would be magic girl-esque or silly like Magical Sensai, but turned out to be intriguing. Watched 2 episodes of Keep Your Hands off Eizoken! — mind blowingly good, the animation style is just awesome. And finally, In/Spectre — a story about Yokai.
That night, I had a mash up dream — the world was set in Eizoken, at a hot springs, but the art style was clearly Eizoken. The hot springs were a maze to get into, with the healing waters at the center of the maze. Along the way, I met 4 people who were actually yokai, but switching from animal form to human like in Tama when they interacted with me. One of the characters was the general from the latest SAO Underworld season, the other three have become fuzzy now — all male however… About all I can remember now, but there was a plot/story there… One that made sense in dream logic.
I just realized, Tama reminds me of my almost all-time favorite anime, The Eccentric Family, with how it switches from animal to human.
