PostSubject: Canaan - The land of Hope [Review no spoilers,My thoughts]   Fri Aug 17, 2012 2:38 am



I decided to post some anime recommendations,considering that many members do not watch a lot of small seinen series(not that there is anything wrong with that),in case they got free time and interest in store.

Canaan is a 13 episode long seinen,so if you got free time i suggest you give it a go.If you've watched Black Lagoon and you enjoyed it,this is kind of a must.

After 2-3 re-watching sessions it rose as my 2nd favorite anime of all time,but it's surprisingly hard to define what actually brought it that high in front of my eyes out of all the anime i've watched.
But i can confidently share with you that my favorite character of all time comes from this anime, Alphard.

I am curious about what you will think of this anime,and if someone has already watched it and wishes to share his thoughts please do so,any type of opinion is fine,i've already heard some people saying that they were on the verge of puking during the first episode,not that i really understand the reason.I think the studio that produced this has some kind of connection with TYPE-MOON so i guess the quality of the show is somewhat guaranteed to be at least ok.

If you're interested,coalgirls have a pretty good BD release,here
they are even praising it by saying that "This is without a doubt the 3rd best show we have ever done."

Also i think it's pretty good as amv material,maybe some lines will be fitting for trailers,who knows.

Before i finish i want to add that,even though it only has 13 episodes,it has a high rewatch value.
Don't expect to understand everything from your first run,that is if you truly want to understand the characters of this anime.


Here's the opening and a soundtrack that i particularly enjoy.I would also like to post and an amv and because i don't want to feature/promote myself i'll post some other's work i really enjoyed [no spoilers]



Also,i'd like to you to tell me if you found this helpful and if you want more similar series recommendations.

When I first saw the pictures my mind went Black Lagoon xD. Well it seems interesting since there is a good character there (saying he is your favourite of most time shows that he is good..The same happened to me from DRRR 24 episodes but awesome characters in it)..Well the 13 episodes is a small letdown. The short animes are (most times) great but they end damn fast xD

Correct me if i'm wrong,but these short anime are more packed,if you get me,than your everyday shounen,their episodes are a lot heavier.

The series's end leaves an opening for a sequel,which i'd love to see coming to life,but the chances are not in favor of that happening.

Obviously you are right...In these short animes you can have even 2 plottwists in 1 freaking episode..and your mind goes...to nowhere..xD

i don't trust 13 episode animes cause most of the times they don't go like the manga and the ending is sudden so i prefer 25 episode animes...i don't mean ofcourse that all 12-13 episode animes are the same

I'll await your opinion when you finish it Crookz,at your leisure of course.

You don't trust?You mean that they are usually crap plotwise? :/ I recommend this to you out of the piles of anime i've watched,do as you wish.It's only 13 eps after all,nothing to lose.
