    The doujin episodes, deserted island episodes, and flashbacks to Watashi's school days were my favorites. Pion and Oyage's true identities were so dopey that it ruined whatever redeeming qualities that arc may have had.

    and I knew Mawaru because you posted about it here. I could name last year Anime which are more familiar (to me, at least) than Mawaru: AnoHana, Tiger and Bunny, Fate/Zero, Children Who Chases Lost Voices from Deep Below.. but shamefully I never heard about Mawaru. I watched Utena, but never followed the news about its creator, so I was a tad surprised when I found out that Mawaru was created by him.
    No, Mawaru definitely did not have the stature of any of those series. It's well known enough to be licensed in the US; the first set of BD's come out on New Year's eve. It is not a name brand, franchise though. Mawaru is not even close in popularity to the titles you mentioned.

    Quote Quote:
    Never heard of him before I watched Kakeru Shoujo, but probably I watched one of his works previously since I also watch One Piece and Digimon movies. Going to add Summer Wars to my watching list.
    He's very popular in Japan, kind of a "rival" to Shinkai for the title of "next Miyazaki". The Girl Who Leapt Through Time was his first movie (aside from One Piece and such), the one that kind of made him a household name.

    I just finished watching Production I.G.'s wonderful film, A Letter to Momo. Fans of Ghibli and Shinkai will love Momo, a beautiful told story about family, love, and home. Worthy of all the accolades it has received in Japan.

    I just watched Hotarubi no Mori e (Into the Forest of Fireflies' Light), a short movie based on a one shot by Natsume Yojincuou mangaka Midorikawa Yuki. Hotarubi no Mori e is a lovely movie about how it only takes one special person to put an end to loneliness, the strength of the bonds we form, but how relationships are still ultimately temporary things.

    In retrospect, going two (or more, can't remember) years watching little or no anime was a better idea than I thought. I suddenly have a near limitless number of recent shows and movies to watch. Tonight I watched the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya, reminding myself why I loved that series so much in the first place. Kyon is a classic character, but Nagato steals the show.

    Re: What anime are you watching and next on your list?

    I haven't watched any anime in a long time. So i restarted with two OVAs (Shin Prince of Tennis and Junjou Romantica).
    Next, i will watch K-project and the new anime Hakkenden.

    Discuss the yaoi side of Shingeki no Kyojin and Kuroko no Basket at the Boys Love section.

    Re: What anime are you watching and next on your list?

    I'm currently re-watching One Piece! I'm planning on finally watching Madoka Magica, K Project, Psycho Pass, and Magi in the near future! And I would love to re-watch Tsuritama and K-On!


    Current obsessions: One Piece and D.Gray-man.

    Re: What anime are you watching and next on your list?

    Recently I have finished with Amagami SS and Amagami SS+. I watched upon my friend's request and he said that Amagami is "one of the best romance Anime" out there, so I was a little bit pumped up. I would say the concept is interesting, since it gives you multiple endings with different girls, pretty much keeping same mechanism with galge visual novel. Unfortunately, the interesting way of story telling does not match up with the quality of the story line. I think there is only one girl route which I like, but in general they're pretty boring although still watchable. If you're interested in watching romance Anime and have some free time, I'd say that this Anime could be one of your options, but I'm not going to say that this Anime is a mandatory for romance suckers.

    The next Anime I'm going to watch is Summer Wars.

    Re: What anime are you watching and next on your list?

    Wow, just wow. That's pretty much my overall reaction after I finished watching Summer Wars, because of Kaiten's recommendation. I did not really like The Girl Who Leap Through Time, but this time Mamoru Hosoda amazed me in so many ways. The story is well-written and more importantly the animation is beautifully pictured. He deserves to be called as Makoto Shinkai's rival for the next Miyazaki. I'm eagerly waiting for his latest movie to be subbed.

    Next I'm going to watch Hellsing Ultimate OVA series.

    Re: What anime are you watching and next on your list?

    I'm watching Bakemonogatari right now. I don't really get it, but I want to finish it for some reason.

    EDIT: Nevermind. It grew on me. Those long, nonsensical, Quentin Tarantino-esque dialogue scenes threw me off. The first few and some others were weird and boring, but a lot of them do pay off. I really like the idea of just two characters interacting for an extended period of time, but it would be a lot better if they dialogue was more meaningful and less nonsensical.

    Now I'm on to Nisemonogatari.

    The more I watch this series, the more it reminds me of a stage play.

    The structure of this show kind of reminds me of the 2007 film version of 'Sleuth'.

    Re: What anime are you watching and next on your list?

    I just finished Elfen Lied, it was an excellent watch. What an intense series, it managed to capture me completely and touched me on so many levels. I'm hardly able to write down my thoughts, that's how much it amazed me. Maybe I will be able to say more when I've cooled down but for now a big thanks to Kait, who made me check out the show.

    The most memorial thing about the anime series (the manga was better btw) for me was the ingenious starting sequence. Elfen Lied was actually one of the first Animes i watched as such (i had only seen the usual suspects like DBZ, Digimon and so forth on German TV) and the beginning simply blew me away.

    Here it is

    Re: What anime are you watching and next on your list?

    It seems like a short list fo me this winter, mainly sticking with Sasami-san and Tamako Market, keeping an eye on OreShura and Vividred Operation, but I do not expect much. AKB0048 - Next Stage was fun but I do have to watch the first season, that would be next on my list.

    Re: What anime are you watching and next on your list?

    The only new shows I am watching this winter are Tamako Market, Maoyuu Maou Yuusha, and Sasami-san@Ganbarani. I found the first two episodes of OreShura to boring, and Vividred was a little to ridiculous and over the top to follow. I found myself laughing to hard after the opening scene to continue. I may give it another try. It's a least a good natured show, aware of what it is, their audience, and what the audience wants. There are absolutely no pretensions or delusions of grandeur to it.

    Re: What anime are you watching and next on your list?

    I'm watching Chihayafuru S2, Maou Yuusha, Kotoura-san, Tamako Market and Mondaiji-tachi from this season. Dropped OreShura and Vividred Operation, the first just didn't interest me enough and the second was plain horrible. Not sure if I will continue Mondaiji but I'm pretty fond of the rest so I think I will go with these until the end.

    Next I'm going to watch the K-On movie, time for some entertaining and funny moe stuff
    Afterwards I will give Gintama another try.

    Re: What anime are you watching and next on your list?

    Still following some on-going titles from previous season (PP, Zetsuen, R;N) as I try some new titles like Chihayafuru 2, Tamako Market, Sasami-san, and Vividred. Vividred's summary is super plain, I'll just give it a quick try to see if it's worth checking out. Aside from that I still want (or need) to finish third season of Natsume Yuujinchou and Shakugan no Shana. Too many, too many...

    Re: What anime are you watching and next on your list?

    I have finished watching Angel Beats!. It's not as moving as CLANNAD or Kanon, but nonetheless I need to say that Angel Beats! is a solid and awesome Anime, regardless of its flaws and plot holes. The Anime is moving pretty monotonous during the first 4 episodes, but the thrills are escalating from episode 5 onward. I believe the problem with this Anime is it is only consist of 13 episodes, which is a pretty narrow room for this Anime to improve and using its wonderful cast. If this Anime were a two-cour series, I believe that this Anime is going to be really awesome. All in all, this is a pretty safe recommendation for anyone, if you have some time, you definitely need to watch Angel Beats!.




    I only watch three series from the Winter season, namely Tamako Market, Sasami-san@Ganbaranai, and the latest installment of Minami-ke franchise, Minami-ke : Tadaima.
