Summer 2013 Anime Part III

Now that the summer season is fully upon us, I thought I would at least my promised 3 part post of the upcoming shows before I jump into it.  This part of the summer forecast will be looking into shows that I have literally no inclination to watch and why.

At the top of the list is Ro-Kyuu-Bu SS

The primary reason that I have no desire to watch this is that I, in fact, do not share the sentiment that "elementary school girls are the best".  Damn, Japan.  Just.  Damn.  Secondarily, this is the second installment of an already running series, and it should say something when the fact that a show is in its second season is not the primary reason I won't watch it.  Just sayin'.

The next show that you could not pay me to watch is Love Lab.

Because I need a show full of archetypes like I need a hole in the head.  There's nothing wrong with a show having a character or two that follow one character type or another, but if the synopsis is to be trusted, this show is full of them.  You know what, scratch that, I don't even mind a show having a cast of characters that cover the entire spectrum of archetypes (Negima! has a cast so big that I think they had some overlap before it was all over), but I will never be into a show whose singular focus is that.

And last, but certainly not least, we have Silver Spoon.

In case you've never heard the phrase, "being born with a silver spoon in your mouth" means being born into a life of privilege, and is where the title comes from.  I don't think there's anything more I really need to say about this other than read the synopsis.  Oh, you know what, I think I got something.  I think the money from Fullmetal Alchemist ran out (unlikely, but by lookin' at Greed squattin' in the corner there, I think this is the same creator). Anyways, much as I loved Fullmetal Alchemist and Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, this really...really does not interest me.

In the immortal words of Hooper in Jaws - "I don't need any of this working class hero crap!"
