Currently watching JoJo's Bizarre Adventure 2012, in episode 12 now.
Also watched New BlazBlue Alter Memory episode, because I'm way too big fan of game series.
I will watch Blood Strike The blood episode 1 when I'm finished JoJo.
Oh I watched Freezing Vibration too, but they already got personality of Julia wrong.....
My fall anime list is now complete:
I'm also watching Monogatari Series: Second Season (summer holdover) and Tamayura: More Aggressive (completed series). I tried Kikou Shoujo, but didn't like it, and dropped it after one episode. I may also drop Outbreak Company. It's a pleasant show, but nothing special. I'll probably decided after episode three. If someone could only watch four shows this season, I would recommend Kyoukai no Kanata, Golden Time, Yozakura Quartet, and Nagiasu. Those four have been my favorite, so far. Galilei Donna and Samumenco also have a lot of potential. Kill la Kill has so far been very good, but is a little but too hyper. There are a lot of good shows this season.
- Diamond no Ace
- Galilei Donna
- Golden Time
- VVV Season 2
- Kill la Kill
- Kyoukai no Kanata
- Little Busters: Refrain
- Outbreak Company
- Strike the Blood
- Tokyo Ravens
- Yozakura Quartet

Finished Accel World. Not really a fan of the RPG game setting normally, but they somehow managed to pull this off. Main cast was likable, although "the bad guy" of the anime was really someone who could get into your nerves even when you are aware that it's just a story. The fact that your weakness in your real life shapes up your strength in your game avatar was a pretty nice approach.
Now watching Mayo Chiki! and up next will be Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo?
I dropped everything but Monogatari by the end of last season but this time I'm going to try..
- Log Horizions.
- Tokyo Ravens
- Golden Time
- Infinite Stratos 2
Hopefully, I'll actually make it through at few of these this time.

Currently, I'm watching these:
1. Strike the Blood (significantly better than I expected)
2. Freezing 2
3. IS 2
Finished Mayo Chiki! and up next will be Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo?. Both have their good moments, but Mayo Chiki! is more light hearted in terms of setting. Mondaiji-tachi's story regarding an old tale got a bit difficult to follow at one point, but I got the gist of it later on. It should still get a second season to be rated more highly, though, since things are left up in the air as it is now.
Seen MS: The Third Exhaust, felt a bit weird, like the second part to The Second Combustion, less like a standalone movie or third chapter to the series. The casino scenes are a good prepartion for the end, a nice way to process her past and end her suffering. Was a bit slow and dialogue heavy thogh.
Also finally got done with Dragon Ball Z Movie 14: Kami to Kami, better than expected, sparring, fight, eating, fight, fight, dessert, fight, end. At least a little allusion to GT. Nice to see them going back to hand to hand fighting, instead of spamming ki attacks.
Yozakura was originally a manga, by the illustrator of the Durarara novels. The 2008 anime that you watched adapted the first four volumes, and first major arc of the manga. It might have felt so confusing and incomplete because Nomad made major changes to the plot, including an abrupt, anime only ending to the story. Fans of the manga generally hate the original anime. Tatsunoko took over in 2010, animating volume 5 - 6 (where the 2008 anime would have left off, if it had followed the manga more closely) as OVA's packaged with volume 9 - 11 of the manga. The OVA's closely followed the manga, and were very popular with fans.
Wow that really really explains it. Thanks. Yes I can tell the resemblance in art between YQ and Drrr, I like the art to begin with. Guess I'd need to check out the manga too to get a more complete image
After seeing Mayo Chiki!, do you have any recommendations for anime with similar style? It's one of my favourite genres (the closest resembling would be Kannagi IMO, and then there is maybe Chuunibyou and OreImo.) I have literally zero shows on my To-Watch-Next list XD
If you haven't watched it already, you can watch Kimi ni Todoke. A school romance with occasional comedy. Watch White Album if you haven't done so, even just for the sake of strong soundtrack.
Gave myself a jolt and got to watch Pretty Cure All Stars DX. <3 Only seen a couple episodes of the original series and Heartcache till now and it was a good introduction into a couple of the first generations. Man do I love the concept of women/girls kicking ass, the 1st Gen is probably the most kick-ass of them all, those from Splash☆Star were too much of like the previews one[and ugly to boot]. PC5 had the best designs so far, maybe their big cast did help. Sadly the best Precure desgins from Heartcache[Umakoshi, most will recognize him from Cashern Sins] are only in the next movie, but it's overloaded as it is already.
