To the show's credit the inappropriate humor and content is usually not a big deal and there aren't that many instances of it. There were just one or two scenes that I thought were particularly in bad taste. In one, Andou SPOILER: Highlight text to read: basically pretends to be a pedophile to convince Chifuyu's friend to stay by her side. Here's a short clip from that scene. I also, like I said, am not big on little girls being part of a harem, even when their feelings aren't recipocated by the adult main character, who doesn't consider them potential romantic interests. But then there are scenes like this, so it's hard to hate the show. Doesn't make up for the show's plot shortcomings (though it's possible there could be more seasons I guess.)

I recently got the BD of the original season of Is the Order a Rabbit? and marathoned it in a day. What a wonderful show. I want more like this in my collection. Very little fan service, and is great for any time you're feeling down. I believe in the power of moe-moe medicine. I also watched the first episode of the currently airing second season. That means I get a little boost of cuteness at least once a week to replace Himoutu from last season.

Haikyuu!! S1 ep.'s 1-25 (sub, complete):
On GeneD's recommendation, I finally watched this... and promptly fell completely head-over-heels in love with it! <3 <3 :hug: :jump: :jump: Not only did it make volleyball extremely interesting, the characters are also great <3 , and as a whole it's hilarious :lol: :lol: :lol: , adorable, fun, exciting, and even a little bit touching. <3 Plus, it's also one of those shows where every episode just makes you feel happy/really good after watching it! :hug:

To top it all off, even if there hadn't been a second season (which there now is, yay! :jump: ), the end was still quite satisfying SPOILER: Highlight text to read: (yes, even including that {*very* close and intensely-fought} loss); and *with* the second season, it's just perfection.

Oh, and after diving right into the (equally-fantastic!) Second Season and the manga, as well, from what I've read so far S1's adaptation was actually one of the rare ones that are not only *perfect,* but actually even a bit of an *improvement* on the source (despite how great the manga already is in and of itself)! :wow!: :jump:

TL;DR: This series is fantastic and I cannot recommend it highly enough!! :jump:
Saved by grace.

Ouran. Been out of anime for a while, so I wanted to start off with something silly and somewhat light-hearted.

Durarara!! eps 3-6 I can't decide if the best part has been SPOILER: Highlight text to read: Izaya stomping on that girl's phone or Shizuo punching that guy's clothes off. They were both awesome. Also, Shinra's dad is disturbing. I always feel compelled to sit through the whole ending...

Started Noragami in an attempt to finish something from the to-watch list in what is supposed to be a quieter currently-airing season. I DIG the opening song. A lot. The characters and designs are nice too, though I can't tell where it's going yet, only on ep 3.

Still Rurouni Kenshin, decided to go for the third season after all. :D Christian arc actually ain't too bad right now, it's totally worth it at this point(getting to see Misao, Hiko, Aoshi, and Chou again is major plus), and interesting too. I'm also a bit curious about Shin Kyoto Hen, the RK OVA, but I have no plans to watch the whole thing, as it's rated R... just the fight with Soujiro, cuz I love him. .3. Can't find clip in English or in subs, tho... just Spanish. o.O

I'm new here so first off I want to say hello!

I've been watching a lot of anime, but lately I've been looking for a good anime that doesn't have anything demonic/sexual/magical but I'd like it to be action packed and romantic?
I tried RWBY and really liked it until someone pointed something out that highly made me doubt the whole concept.
SPOILER: Highlight text to read: When the mysterious woman in red helps Yang after being knocked unconcious by Neo, she opens a portal. Lots of people say that this is Yangs mother and that shes, "The ruler of Hell" and that she was opening a portal.

So I honestly didn't want to watch it, even though I've heard its actually a christian anime based off of the fight between good and evil, not only that but some of the characters are based off of people from the Bible. For example: Yang Xiao Longs strength comes from her hair. Sound familiar? Its based off of Samson.

So if there is an anime you could recommend I'd love to hear it. Thank you!

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit episode 4

A bit more development of the characters, and a whole lot of mysterious going on. I'm intrigued....

Lots of tempting anime deals on Rightstuf Christmas sale. Picked up The Familiar of Zero and Little Busters. Can't wait. Until they come in I'm streaming the wonderful gift to the world that is Is the Order a Rabbit? season 2.

Finished up Zetman. Not bad. Not great. Decent. It was definitely nice to see something a little different, I can't really think of an anime I've seen that is super similar to it.

Art/Visuals: 5/10 - Outside of the Jin and Kouga (who look really cool), I wasn't really crazy about the art. Their mouths looked weird among other things.

Story: 7/10 - The story is pretty good but being that SPOILER: Highlight text to read: its only in the last two episodes that Jin gets his final form and we get to see real conflict arise between Jin and Kouga, I can't say it was handled all that well. If the rivalry between the two started around episode 7, and then the next six episodes were used to expand on that and eventually lead to them resolving their differences, things would have been far more interesting.

Characters: 8/10 - Jin and Kouga had great development and were both very interesting, cool characters. The rest of the characters where kind of bland and I feel like were only there for Jin and Kouga's development.

Enjoyment: 6/10

Overall: 6/10

I watched all of Steins;Gate on my BD set in a single day. That was quite a ride. Never hook a phone up to a microwave and send texts, kids. I really must get the game some time.

Because I heard someone mention it on here a while back, I started watching The Snow Queen. I haven't really gotten into the meat of the fairy tale plot yet, but I'm liking the setup so far. It feels like a fairy tale, which is what I wanted going into this. I was also pleasantly surprised to discover that the composer for the soundtrack is Akira Senju, the guy who did FMA: Brotherhood! No wonder the music's so good ^_^

Recently got a whole lot of anime BDs from Rightstuf thanks to their Christmas sale, and probably going to get some a lot more before it's over... I bought all four seasons of The Familiar of Zero, Cowboy Bebop, both seasons of Little Busters, Kiniro Mosaic, and the 3rd season of Hayate the Combat Butler (which I think is actually a reboot?) Expect me to be talking about them a whole bunch soon.

Watching Kiniro Mosaic as we speak! Cuteness! Cuteness everywhere! I'm so glad I got this. I recently learned this anime is an example of 癒し系, or "healing" anime (it has a lot of overlap with slice of life). What an accurate name for this genre. Definitely my favorite kind of anime, period; so many of my absolute favorites except for some hot-blooded shonen titles like One Piece fit into this category (although I would argue much of One Piece is great for its own kind of healing ;) ), including Non Non Biyori, K-On, Barakamon, and Is the Order a Rabbit.

I need the reminders of all the little wonderful things in life which, we here at CAA happen to know are gifts from God. And all this moe and gentle comedy in Kiniro Mosaic certainly soothes the soul. My biggest complaint is that there are only 12 episodes. There's also some "shoujo ai" themes, though nothing too bad at all; if you can handle anything that's in K-On, Is the Order a Rabbit or Non Non this friendship stuff wouldn't bother you in the least. It's also very noticeable that English isn't the first language of Nao Toyama or Manami Tanaka, the voice actresses for the characters from England in the series (Karen Kujo and Alice Cartelet) so some early scenes where we're supposed to believe they don't understand much Japanese felt a tad awkward. If anything though, that just makes Karen and Alice all the more endearing, and you have to give the seiyuu some credit for their English efforts. Overall fantastic stuff.

I've also finally started watching the Toriko DVDs that I've had for a while. Amazing story that's grown on me the more I watch. I'm guessing it's influenced a lot by One Piece, and far as I'm concerned even comparing it to that is giving it high praise. I'm not really quite sure how to describe it though other than pointing one to some offical synopsis, given just how weird it honestly is. It's... EPIC FOOD ADVENTURE. Idk. All I know is I'm destined to be disappointed, since afaik Funimation never got the rights to put the rest of the show on DVD, and the rest that can be streamed on Crunchyroll apparently has a filler ending. Looks like another case of me having to get a hold of the manga to get the rest of the story.



TL;DR: Go watch Kiniro Mosaic if you need some cute in your life.

So I got Noragami'd hard a while back and am now watching the new season, of which the Bishamon arc may or may not have been actually potentially life changing for me. But that's a post on it's own for another time.

Incidentally, I have 3 Crunchyroll guestpasses that expire at the end of Dec and I'm going away on holiday in a few days, so anyone who wants one, let me know.

Watched Hararaku Maou-Sama! eps. 4-12 (well, 12 until the video player crashed.) I didn't think my hate for the themesong could grow so much. SPOILER: Highlight text to read: Also, I'm disappointed that the show didn't show Maou or Ashiya trying to adjust to the human world at all. It's like they got rid of all the potentially interesting stuff...

Noragami Aragoto ep 11- SPOILER: Highlight text to read: I can sense that the next episode is going to make me angry. Seriously, why doesn't he just leave the Nora in the underworld and escape? I mean, if what's-her-face wants someone to stay, the Nora can. I'm nearly caught up with the anime in the manga, but I think I'm going to wait for it to finish airing.

Dramatical Murder 1-12- It was okay, and it wasn't even shounen ai despite being based off a BL game. It was decent enough for me to try and watch the OVA, and... well, I want to bleach my eyes out after watching it for five minutes and dropping it.

Finished up BlazBlue: Alter Memory. I've played the games, but I never really paid attention to the story. I enjoyed the anime quite a bit, even though some of the time I was a little confused as to what was actually going on, lol.

Art/Visuals: 9.5/10 - Love the art. I loved the character designs, the visuals, the colors, the environments--practically everything about this show visually was really cool. The only complaint I have about the visual experience is that the fight scenes were a little underwhelming at times.

Story: 6/10 - Don't really got much to say here. Enjoyed learning about Ragna, Noel, Jin, and all the characters and there roles in the story, but there were a number of things that I think I would have to follow the games to better understand.

Characters: 9/10 - Great cast of characters! They were all very entertaining, and I feel like even though there were quite a few characters and only twelve episodes, most of the them were expressed fairly well. My favorite was Ragna.

Enjoyment: 8.5/10

Overall: 8.5/10

I've also watch episodes 1-5 of Watamote and episodes 1-4 of Macross Frontier.
