Finished Little Witch Academia this morning and Death Pool just now. Both of them had been on my backlog for couple of weeks and today is the time where I could watch both of them. Little Witch Academia is a gleeful, colorful, and fun anime. If this were made into a 12 episodes Anime, I bet it'd become magnificent. One thing that I feel lacking from LWA is the ending.. maybe because it's a short, 20-minutes anime, I feel that the ending could be more intricate than that.
Meanwhile, Death Pool is excellent. Well-crafted dialogue, interesting setting, and great animation, as expected from MadHouse. I really wish this is going to be made into a movie format, but unlike LWA, I feel the story is fit enough to be condensed into 20-ish minutes anime. The psychological theme is superb as well, and the ending, while kinda predictable, still satisfying.
Excellent anime I'd recommend to all of you.
i just finished kokoro connect
i must say, this is the type of anime that touches your heart
flat out amazing one of my favorites, i would suggest it to any fan of any genre
I finished rewatching Nisemogatari, and have started Oda Nobuna no Yabou.
Spring 2013 shows I'm watching:
Attack on Titan
Aku no Hana
Something no Crime Edge (for lols)
Date A Live
Why am I cringing through this pilot episode/I should have read the plot summary:
Uta No Prince-sama: Maji Love 2000%. My face hurts from all the cringe comedy and I still can't decide if I want to be a trooper and watch the last.... 19 minutes. ohgodwhy

I tried Crime Edge. When he had his first harigasm I laughed so hard I couldn't finish the episode. Might be a great show, the look on his face was more lolz than I could handle. Prince-sama looks too fabulous for my taste. RDG is underrated, I really like it so far. Lots of feels.
Dropping Valvrave and Mushibugyou along the way, I've settled down mostly for a bunch of comedy series. Date a Live, Hataraku Maou-sama, Oregairu and HenNeko might all easily rank as the top anime of the season for me.
And although I don't notice much of a popularity going on for either show, I could suggest Arata Kangatari and Crime Edge. They both worth a look in my opinion.
Finished watching Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo and I have really mixed feelings about it. It stays true to it's concept and is as thrilling as always but really lacks some things that made the previous movie so great, such as a lot of interesting character interactions (because we mainly got Shinji and Kaworu, while the rest of the main cast was barely featured ). It was over in a flash and yet I feel like there wasn't much progression, just that the situations even more of a mess. Nothing unusual for Evangelion but it lacked parts to make up for the slow progression. So while it was entertaining, stunning and good to look at (animation is as great as always), it lacked too much compared to it's predecessors. If I had to describe it, it felt more like half of a movie instead of a full one.
I felt like Crime Edge never fully took off until episode 3. MC has potential, and I really like his relationship with the Hair Queen and all of the other Author-Instead relationships.
Dropping Prince-sama after finishing episode 1 because it needs less pseudo-harem "we can't love a woman bros, it's against idol code!" and more razzle-dazzle.
Starting RDG after it finishes loading.
I finished Oda Nobuna no Yabou, a really fun, and surprisingly action packed, anime. Next I'm going to finish season one of Railgun, and catch up on the new season. I watched part while it aired, before I got lazy and stopped watching.

omg I forgot Misaka was so epic
currently watching tari tari (thx to kaiten-san) and kotouro-san
also picked up a series called myself yourself
nome them.are amazing but they all seem pretty good
After having dropped Karneval and Devil Survivor 2, which were both just too generic and boring, I think this is my final watch list for the spring season:
- Hataraku Maou-sama! (hilarious and awesome, definitely my surprise hit of the season)
- Kakumeiki Valvrave (for the lulz)
- HenNeko (Likeable characters, especially the mainies. The episodes differ in quality though, at least for me)
- OreImo S2 (Loved season 1, love season 2 even though it's not as great as the first yet)
- Red Data Girl (I have a thing for mysteries anyway and while the series is more or less average so far, it does manage to keep me interested)
- Suisei no Gargantia (it seems Urobuchi always delivers)
- Shingeki no Kyojin (awesome manga, awesome anime)
- Oregairu (I love the humor with all it's irony and sarcasm + great characters)
And I'm trying to watch the remake of Space Battleship Yamato when I find some time between all the shows. Watched four episodes so far and it's indeed entertaining, though I'm not totally hooked on it yet.
has anyone tried attack of titan?
just curious if it is any good
This weekend I started up two of the new animes
- Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru
- Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai
I must be in the mood for animes with impossibly long names.
