It's actually pretty surprising for a long-running anime like Sket Dance. Usually at this point there would have been several fillers by now. Although I quite like the small changes that do occur so I don't think fillers will be a bad thing.
Princess Mononoke? It's the Ghibli film. They both deal with spirituality and nature so I thought that was similar.Quote:
I can't wait to learn more about Ginko. Even though the story is set in historical Japan, I wonder why he has white hair. :/ (Or maybe it's simply a character design thing.)
Currently watching Suzumiya Haruhi not Yuutsu and I'm enjoying it way more than I thought. I watch it in the original release order and not the chronological one, which turns out to be a pretty good decision (and was a a real nice idea by the producers).
Niichan, I continued our Mushishi conversation over here.
My goal is to watch well-received shows from a short (or long) time ago so I've started on Witch Hunter Robin. I'm still trying to remember all the character's names.
I've been catching up on Eureka Seven AO. I've come to the conclusion that it's inferior to the original in every single way possible but I'm still watching it so I guess it's not all bad. I'm grateful to the show if for no other reason that it caused me to watch the original Eureka Seven again. I was a little afraid that it wouldn't be as good as I remembered but it totally was. Music, characters, inspired animation; it really was the complete package.
The only other thing I'm watching is Sword Art Online, which I'm enjoying thus far.
Is there anything else out there that anyone wants to recommend?

I'm trying to continue Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai after finishing the first part, as well as Fate/Stay Night after clearing Fate/Zero. I don't know what to expect from Kai though so many positive reviews I have seen for it (the first part is still a bit confusing and I've only seen one episode of Kai XD). As for Fate/Stay Night, it doesn't seem as good as first season but we'll see.
Finished the first season of Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu. I'm probably really late with watching the show but it was absolutely great. Now on to watch the second season and then the film.
Okay, I'm just catching up with 10 episodes of Kokoro Connect. Ignoring the recent off screen drama, technically, the animation quality is not special, but story wise, this Anime surpasses my expectation. I thought I would get a cliche slice-of-life daily school since the premise of the story is not really that strong to attract my interest, but in fact a good execution can produce such an impressive result. With 7 episodes left, I hope this anime won't disappoint me once it ends.
Finished The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya movie. God this was epic, should have watched that long ago. The drama, the comedy, the suspense, everything was just plain awesome~
Now I really wish they would animate the rest of the novels.
I just started watching 'Kids on the Slope'. Three episodes in and I am loving it. I might start reading the manga.
Either Paprika or Eden of the East... The BDs just arrived.
Any recommendation which to take first?

Eden of the East.. do you mean everything, including the series and the two movies? I watched all three but while it was enjoyable, it had it's boring moments. I do not want to spoil you but you prolly shouldn't expect that much of it, it's an okay/good watch.
I'm completely caught up on Eureka Seven AO now and I feel compelled to tell anyone who might be even slightly interested do yourself a favor and just stay away. As much as I loved Eureka Seven, and as much respect as I have for the studio BONES, after 20 episodes it has become painfully apparent that this is just not good in any way.
I'm genuinely trying to think of something nice to say about it right now and I can't think of anything; that's how bad it is. Wait...I got something! The first episode was really good....That's all I got.
It's sorta surprising to me that BONES would put out something so devoid of quality of any kind. Their work is usually so reliable.
For some odd reason I'm halfway through Inuyasha: Kanketsu-hen. Inuyasha was my first ever fandom for anime/manga so there's a huge rush of nostalgia watching it. The first couple of episodes were awfully fast-paced, but right now things are stabilizing itself. I noticed that the animation is slightly different from the original; the character design seems closer to Rumiko's art style.
Since I'm going through a seiyuu phase again, I want to watch Le Chavlier d'Eon where Narita Ken is voicing one of the main characters.
Other than the anime's I'm watching during the fall season, I'm currently watching BD's of Baccano!, yeah I know I'm late but it's waaaaay better than I thought it would be. I should have watched it before DRRR!. That and I'm watching bd's of index, it's been on my watching list for a while so I gave it a try, plus I'm catching up to the sket dance anime now that it's done.
I don't typically watch much anime, but lately I've been in the mood for it.
I've seen 26 episodes of Space Brothers, and I really adore this show. I think it's really well done.
After that, I watched the first 5 episodes of Giant Killing. I'm kind of bored with it though. I don't even really like soccer and I don't care much about the characters yet. I'll give it a few more episodes.
Another anime I've recently tried is Natsuyuki Rendezvous. It's decent so far, but I think I would like it more without the supernatural element.
And finally, I just watched the first episode of Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun, which I thought was very promising.
