    And lastly, Shigofumi, which has been on my backlog for some time. Really liked the first 2 episodes, reminded me a lot of Shinigami no Ballad, just a bit darker and more intense.



    Ah, so almost as linear as F/SN. Could've sworn the flowchart said they had to be in order, oh well. I did arcuied, ciel, akiha, hisui, kohaku and just thought I was being forced into that order.
    Keep watching Rozen, it gets amazing. Love that show so much.

    Whats hilarious is I did that exact order, but thats because I like the last 3 in that order, and felt I should do ciel before the "far side of the moon" 3

    I forgot about Shigofumi, good stuff. Incredibly underrated though.

    Is it really so good? I tried to watch it about a year ago, but ended up dropping after a couple episodes. :/

    Just wait until late season 1/season 2 Remember to watch the OVA's from season 1 before going on with season 2.

    Yeah, I never see it mentioned. Kinda went under the radar for a long time, but when I saw the premise I knew I'd like it. Just didn't expect it to get as dark as it did. I'm surprised it took this long for me to hear about it, though.

    I get the feeling I know what'll happen, I can already see her slowly converting. =) Pretty sure the first episode of season 3 aired today, I need to catch up fast!

    OreImo - Good episode. Little Kirino was awesome. Overall it was a good season, mainly because it had alot of Ayase. 7/10 overall, though depending on how good the specials are it might be higher (i usually don't rate specials, but change the score of the parent series depending on the quality of them)

    Henneko - Loved the ending. Not a big fan of the whole romance part of the ending, but the part with the past was amazing. The music that went along with the kid Yokodera saying he'll give up his memories, wow. Really awesome ending. Series was really funny, though some of the drama was bland. Overall I'd give it a 7/10, just because of the first half of the last episode.

    SnK - What the hell is with recaps? We don't need a 3 minute recap of what happened before this episode. Even worse is that the recap only showed us things that happened in the past two episodes. Honestly, who the hell is going to forget what happened these past two episode? They were so damn slow it is impossible to forget. I'm fine with small recaps (Durarara and Baccano did it well) but not a 3 minute one every episode. But enough bitching, this episode was really good, and alot beter than the past few. Hopefully it stays this way (ignoring the fact that next episode is a recap episode... sigh)

    Am also pretty disappointed Railgun's second half is going to be anime original. Railgun as a SoL show is average, but when it is serious (the current arc and level upper in S1) it can be really good.

    Shingeki: I'm going to guess next epi is going to be some history / recap of everything or something very uneventful, especially with that 'preview'. =\

    So one one else was hype about the Shingeki OST release that happened yesterday? :s

    Did Shingeki get a break this week? I don't even see the raws uploaded yet and usually translation is done by now.

    Only 3 episodes in, but Jun is very generic and cliched so far, Hinaichigo is flat out obnoxious, and Nori is just kinda annoying. I don't mind Shinku as much, probably the only thing I really like so far about the show. The fighting scenes were pretty slow and boring as well. I'll stick with it, and see if it can grow on me a bit.

    Shigofumi and Genshiken on the other hand have me hooked.

    The OST really wasn't that great, just a few songs. So far I like McDonalds more and I have yet to try Gargantia's.

    I do really like DOA though.

    Aku no Hana - Okay... there better be a season 2. Because that ending was really crappy, considering it can hardly be considered an ending. It says the end of part 1, but are they really even going to make a part 2? I doubt the sales are good. Eh, I might have to read the manga I guess. Overall the series was good. The premise itself was unique. Would have given it a 7/10 if it weren't for the fact that the ending gave little to no closure. So 6/10.
