Jyu-Oh-Sei episode 9

Ah, this was the stray episode I saw that got me interested in this anime in the first place. Yeah, I can see why this would make the show look more interesting than it actually is :shady: Still, I don't regret getting to hear another Romi Paku role.

Silver Spoon episodes 12-13

I always love the antics of the Ezo students ^_^

Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit episodes 9-10

I'm repeatedly amazed at how blithely the main characters walk around this town and use each other's real names, like there's no possibility anyone would overhear and recognize them. Sheesh, at least give Chagum an alias! He's the freaking prince, for crying out loud! :bang:

The Snow Queen episodes 6-8

More little adventures along the way. I absolutely can't figure out the Snow Queen's motives. I'm also growing a little frustrated that the wolf hasn't shown up, even though he's all over the ending theme :lol:

Been watching AKB0048 slowly but surely. It's cute and quite clean, if a bit odd at times. You have to just go along with the silly story of idols (the singing kind, not the violation of the Ten Commandments kind) being outlawed and mech police attacking and our beloved space song & dance girls fighting back. Or at least, that's what I can gather about the show's setting. I'm watching it with the subtitles off, and it's actually pretty difficult to understand.

I have the greatest respect for anyone who actually has the patience to sit all the way through Jyu-Oh-Sei. So much disappointment from that series.

I wish I had time for anime!! I did, however, finish Charlotte recently. I really, really liked that one. SPOILER: Highlight text to read: But of course, my favorite character died. As always. Started to watch DurararaX2 with my sister while she was visiting me, but only got a few episodes in, and if I watch it without her she'll kill me. So I'll have to wait till summer break for that one. Oh, how I missed this show.

Honestly, I think knowing it was going to be a disappointment ahead of time makes it easier to get through :P Then why watch it? you might ask. Well, mostly just because I love Bones animation and Romi Paku. And the ending theme's good? *shrug*

Anyway, I'm now up to episode 10, so just one left.

I’m currently watching Steins;Gate. Not the garden variety anime in terms of style, and I think a fresh take on time travel. This assistant is the most tsundere character in existence.

I recently finished watching Erased on Crunchyroll. Definitely recommend it.

Also just finished Durarara!! x 2. Good series.

I'm tired, so I haven't expounded on either of those yet. Maybe I'll remember to come back and add more about those later.

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit episode 11

Library War episodes 10-12: Finally got around to finishing this one. Tough to say how I feel about this series. The premise was really interesting and really hard to believe at the same time. Throughout the whole show, I kept thinking "there's no way that the government would really ALLOW fighting like this between rival branches." And I was still saying that at the end; the series never won me over on that point.

BUT I did really like the overall message about the power of art and the need for freedom of expression. Kasahara did a great job of summing that up. I do like the way the show made the case that art and literature are worth fighting for; even potentially worth dying for.

I also have a mixed reaction to Kasahara as a protagonist. To be blunt, she annoyed me quite a bit at the beginning of the series. But I enjoyed watching her mature by the end.

Toradora was pretty good I enjoyed it. I have not heard of the other ones, however, I noticed the Charlotte gif under your post and assume you must have good taste in anime ;) . If you find any of those anime's you are watching particularly interesting, I would love to here about it.

Rewatched Hayate the Combat Butler (which I really love) on beautiful BD (the animation quality of the last two seasons + movie in particular is just gorgeous) and now Nyankoi, which is not as bad as it may appear, but is in fact a pretty decent romcom and not a fan service show, despite what the BD back cover may make you think. Then I'm going to watch Glasslip, which I'm really excited about. Was a steal at $10.

Sakamoto Desu Ga

So much awesome. It's just awesomeness that I watch every week. XD

Nijiiro Days

Okay, I like it, but my gosh, it feels eternal with these short weekly episodes...

Black Cat

Really liking it. A bit violent for my tastes... (RK is my standard? Like, don't wanna go much farther than that) ...but I just kinda look away if something gross happens. XD Train is awesome (I like him better after the skip~), he's like another Kenshin. :D And I just love Sven.

Shounen Maid

Somehow, I'm a bit embarrassed to list this one, but MAL says it ain't shonen-ai or yaoi, so I think at most it's more like Free? (throwing hints at crazy fangirls) Actually seems lighter once you get past the title and concept. XD It's not like he's wearing a skirt or anything. Just an apron and frills :D (I actually got my friend to watch it too lol) So funny, I like all the characters for once. XD jk

I finished Erased and it was really good. Who the murderer is was really just flat-out obvious, but at least the ending tied itself up nicely. I also started Kiznaiver and it's doing okay so far. I like the idea of everyone being connected in some way and there's some decent drama coming from it, so that's good. Hopefully the show doesn't fail to disappoint.

Recently I've been much more entertained by Western shows than anime, but I started watching Wolf's Rain again, which is pretty solid. I plan to finish it up tomorrow. I'm also on episode 9 of Divine Gate, which is okay, but seriously feels like its being crammed into 12 episodes. I honestly feel that if this anime was at least 25 episodes, they'd be able to tell the story without it feeling a like a convoluted mess. Eh, I guess I enjoy it for what it is, though I can't see giving it more than a 6/10 if that.

I seriously gotta start watching more anime again, I feel like I'm falling behind, lol.

Re-watching OreMonogatari (MY love story) with lil'sis, forgot just how great that one is! Watching Sketchbook -full colorS- on my own. It's mediocre, but I'm really enjoying it for some reason which may or may not be Azumanga Daioh.

Finished Black Cat. I guess I can't blame people too much for not liking it by the end, but I still think some of them were being dramatic. It's a good story, with tone of good characters, the anime just rushed some things, especially the end. (and admittedly, some parts were hard to follow, they make have assumed too much of their viewers. The final battle jumped around a lot as well.) I started reading the manga first, so I wasn't upset when Train's personality "changed", since he was like that at the manga's start...

Still watching Shounen Maid and Sakamoto Desu Ga, and still enjoying both greatly. Sakamoto gives me laughs for it's ridiculousness and creativity, and Shounen Maid gives me fun and fluff. ^^ (and it's pretty darn clean, I think.)

Still watching Nijiiro Days too, but I'm almost done with it, in more ways than one. Kinda bugs me how long it's taking to get to the point, almost like Ishuukan Friends. (One Week Friends) several couples, non together yet (except for Yukirin and Tsuyopon, of course, who are my faves. Otaku couples are so cute.)

Started Working!! yesterday I think (I sure hope it wasn't earlier lol) and I'm up to like 6 episodes. A lot of things in it were ticking me off, but it's gotten better. Souta's sisters aren't as bad as their first appearance made them seem. Inami was driving me crazy, but she's gotten a bit better already. (I mostly don't like it when she blames someone else for her hitting them. But she hasn't done that much anymore, so it's okay. My fave is Satou, he's pretty cool. The blonde lady he likes irritates me now though. :shady: She's a little too attached to the manager and not-quite-sane-sometimes... Oh, and I love Souma. XD Looks like I'm in for a long-ish ride, three seasons and extras...

Um... I kinda started Orechi no Furo Jijou[/b since it said funny shorts and shoujo, but I'm not too sure... made it to 5, and it's mostly funny, but it has it's weird moments here and there. (I skipped that part with the octopus guy in that one episode, just cuz.)

And... let's see... Oh, I tried [b]Seitokai no Ichizon
, and it was funny in some ways (I liked the main guy lol), but I just didn't wanna deal with all that fanservice and stuff. (and references I don't care about/get) Same reason I quit GJ-bu and When Supernatural Events Become Commonplace(?). Apparently, I can't stand these clubs-that-do-nothing-and-have-only-one-guy shows. And for goodness sake, why must the "leader" of the club always be red/orange/pink haired and short-ish? The supernatural one was a bit different at least... but there, the GUY annoyed me. XD

Guess I'll just stick to Host Clubs and swimming clubs. -w-

Working is a fantastic anime, and I'm sure it has a decent amount of fans given its three season run. I have an Inami Mahiru Nendoroid that is incredibly adorable. Also, "Souma x Yamada?" What is wrong with people? Some anime fans... :comp: EDIT Again: I realize it may have sounded like I was talking about NekoNinja here, but I was really talking about the people who came up with this, and no doubt even go so far as to sexualize it, as the otaku "community" is inclined to do. I assume the worst because I've unfortunately seen far worse than that. My wording was probably too vague. That said, it's probably best to drop the topic from here on out.

I watched and finished Glasslip. Just... what? I have no idea what to even think of this anime. What I feel definitely isn't closure, though. But maybe that's intentional? WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO FEEL!?




Now I'm starting Uta No Prince Sama 1000%. As usual, going in blind, so no idea what to expect, but from the cover it looks like standard "reverse harem" shoujo fare, so I'm hoping for lots of silly hijinks.



Edited to be more respectful.

"Souma x Yamada?" What is wrong with people? I hate anime fans...


It's better to say: ''I don't like (it's horrible to hate people) otaku (otherwise you insult yourself and innocent people)'', in a Japanese sense. Anime is sometimes terrible indeed, but it should not surprise you :( Just ignore the bad things. There are MORE terrible things in anime than that. :banned:

Working didn't quite work for me(stopped watching it in season 1). It wasn't particularly bad, but it just didn't work out for me.

I watched and finished Glasslip. Just... what? I have no idea what to even think of this anime. What I feel definitely isn't closure, though. But maybe that's intentional? WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO FEEL!?


Yeah....I have watched it too. Don't know how to feel it either. I just don't :?:

I think that's about right.
It's been a while since I watched it, but I think the show itself was more about SPOILER: Highlight text to read: dealing with change than relationship closure. Everyone had an eclectic bushel of things they wanted to change, and things they wanted to keep the same. By the end, a lot had really changed, but it could be argued that nothing actually did. Running guy's (sorry guy, nobody said your name during my last episode refresh.) comment to Touko encapsulates it well: "You're the same as always... or are you?"
In a short: Change is frightening because we're afraid we'll lose things. But change doesn't take away from us, it makes more of us.

Or, I'm making the whole thing up. It's been awhile, and my most vivid memory of the show is the fireworks chibi backhand spring from the... closing? >_>

I watched and finished Glasslip. Just... what? I have no idea what to even think of this anime. What I feel definitely isn't closure, though. But maybe that's intentional? WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO FEEL!?
I think that's about right.
It's been a while since I watched it, but I think the show itself was more about SPOILER: Highlight text to read: dealing with change than relationship closure. Everyone had an eclectic bushel of things they wanted to change, and things they wanted to keep the same. By the end, a lot had really changed, but it could be argued that nothing actually did. Running guy's (sorry guy, nobody said your name during my last episode refresh.) comment to Touko encapsulates it well: "You're the same as always... or are you?"
In a short: Change is frightening because we're afraid we'll lose things. But change doesn't take away from us, it makes more of us.

Or, I'm making the whole thing up. It's been awhile, and my most vivid memory of the show is the fireworks chibi backhand spring from the... closing? >_>


Now that I've had a little time to think about it, your interpretation of what the anime was trying to do kind of makes sense.


Watched The Girl Who Leapt Through Time with Grandma and Mom (the Funimation dub). Man. What a perfect movie. Definitely gotta watch the original audio some time.
