This season im watching:
Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt (filled with lulz)
The world god only knows (my favorite this season :3)
Ika Musume (Means Squid girl, and ALTHOUGH it sounds like a horrible Japanese porno it is actually quite funny. And contains on porn)
Star Driver (Dissapointed that nobody actually drives a star but pretty good story)

Hated Iron man and detective Yakumo so dropped the shit out of them.

Also finishing off needless and Welcome to the NHK

If you haven't, you should check out Bakuman, Ore no Imouto, Nurarihyon No Mago and Index2.


Is The World God Only Knows really good? hmm... thought it looked pretty stupid and not seen anyone praise it before now, guess I'll check it out. Good timing as well, was bored.

I havent seen index or the original so no reason for me to watch season 2 yet XD
I saw first 3 eps of ore no imoto and it wasnt for me :|
As for Bakuman I do want to give it a try, im just wondering how good an anime about writing manga can be, although apparently teh manga is quite good.

Also im taking back what I said about The world god only knows, last 2 eps have been really average ;A;

GF got a DVD set of "Case Closed"/"Detective Conan" for xmas.

Been watching some of that. If you like Phoenix Wright Maybe you'd like this anime... maybe. Main dude is a detective though not a Lawyer.
It's pretty gay sometimes though, could be an anime made for girls. It has a Lupin III look to it.
..............Yup!

Love how the resident tough guy is happy to talk trash on an internet forum but back pedals as soon as he is called out. Typical coward. No doubt he'll respond to this with excessive bravado in order to restore his rightful place as a fully fledged internet badass.

I have only one question for this series: WHEN WILL IT FRICKING END?!

I mean I like murder mysteries as much as the next guy, but this show needs to frickin' end. Just I always hoped this show would be more bout this black organization,instead of these killings which happen more than the random encounters in the FF games. I mean you emedeatly forget bout the organization, since they're rarely mentioned and when they are you stop giving a shit.

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Yea man. I noticed that it's STILL running when looking for the first opening theme. It's the DBZ of murder mysteries.

So far the Winter season has been shit. Level E and Fractale are alright, Dragon Crisis is watchably generic and I'm reserving judgment on Yumekui Merry..

Spring is looking a little better. But hell even if the rest turn out to be a bust, just having more Gintama and Maria Holic should make up for it.

/Gundam 00 Movie was good, I would recommend it to anyone who finished the series.
//Rainbow was a surprise, about halfway through and so far it's been quite an amazing series.
///Densetsu no Densetsu no Yuusha ended more or less how I hoped. That is, without a shitty anime only ending. Looking forward to a sequel.. (I can hope right icon_razz.gif).

Second. Worst. Signature. Ever.
Expecting something witty? Herp derp tiddlerp.

Yea, winter season is pretty bad... Watching Dragon Crisis (because of Rie Kugimiya), Wolverine (cause it's Wolverine..) and Beelzebub (for the luls.) All 3 are ok. Gosick is almost on the level of good so far.
But the only thing saving this season imo is the continuation of Bakuman and Index2 :/

ending was a bit weird.... epic battle for an hour, then suddenly just "O HAI THAR! the end."

I really hope they make a sequel.... They have to! >.<


Haven't heard much about spring season yet.. Where have you found info Karko?

I worry for summer season thou.. Wonder how the tokyo ban will affect things.


Watching older series instead these days... Can't believe I haven't watched Mushishi before now, soo good.

I started watching Yumekui Merry, Beelzebub, and Kore wa Zombie Desu ka, I'm enjoying them so far. Also watching Wolverine but I watched all of Iron Man and the show was terrible, so my hopes aren't incredibly high for it. Also just watched Bakemonogatari, Durarara, and Souleater, all were pretty good. I watched Air Gear as well, but I don't really understand why people like it, I thought it was ok.

Dont know if you guys have watched Shiki, but it is pretty good so far. I am only on episode 19.
Never let your mind stop you from having a good time!

The first novel series effectively ended just like that. There's a second series that continues the story.

Baka tsuki have a few of the volumes translated I think?

Chartfag. Even though they've officially stopped they've linked to a few others who took it up.


I had to do a double take when I read Lotte no Omocha.. I can't see how anyone thought that was a good idea.

As for the ban, I'm sortof on the fence about it, on one hand I can see why people are disgruntled about it but even a blind man could see how anime has really stagnated in the last five years. Until recently you had a wealth of amazing and interesting titles coming out. Now half of it is HAREM MOEBLOBS ALMOST PORN.. If the ban completely removes that shit then I'll be a happy man.

/Shiki is alright.
//I heard you like tractors.

Well, yea... But what worries me is that publishers will do stupid stuff out of fear of the ban... Like the one who has banned their mangaka from drawing school uniforms... wtf is up with that?

I can't stand the generic ecchi retardation animes. So no complaints from me there if they finally stop, or at least quiet down a bit.

The problem is the vague-ness of the law... The board who is supposed to look at anime/manga and judge whether they fall under the law or not will most likely consist of the people who supported the ban... Christian fanatics and old people. And it's up to them how they choose to read the law.
I'm still wondering what happened over there... Usually the flaws of democracy isn't that obvious. I mean, 80% of the Japanese are opposed to the ban. Usually the corruption and randomness of democracy are much better hidden in percentages like 55%

yea, there's something about it...
It's pretty cliche romance/comedy/harem... just without much comedy.
But so far I've watched every ep as soon as they are available.

I think I like it simply because it's been a while since I watched a harem anime that pretended to have a story. And the first anime I watched (not including pokemon) was Nagasarete Airantou. So romance/harem/comedy is what introduced me to anime icon_razz.gif

This season is looking better than the last. Gosick, Fractale, and Madoka are fucking stellar.
