    Watched Seitokai no Ichizon and Lvl2 up to this episode and I have to say, this one was By far the best episode. Oh my god, that phone call was amazing, some episodes were rather boring for me, but this one made up for it, dayum.

    Sora no Woto huh, guess it cant hurt to take a look.

    Definitely check it out. It's only 12 episodes plus an ova, so not long at all.

    Two OVA's. Episodes 7.5 and 13.

    7.5 is pure comedy, and 13 is a conclusive and heartwarming episode after the main story.

    I should really go watch Cromartie High School. I watched a few episodes a long time ago back when I had Anime network on demand, but never watched it since.

    Ah, yeah. I'd forgot about 7.5.

    Almost done with Mirrai Nikki, and damn this is good. I wasn't expecting much, but I haven't been able to stop watching it. I've heard the anime has a different ending than the the source. What are the differences between the two? Spoiler tags please since I'm not quite finished yet. On episode 23 atm.

    Hmm... I forgot about finishing Sora no Woto... damn it. It's one of the more different type of 'slice of life' that I've watched (half way anyways). I'd love to see a few more series like it.

    The first half of Sora no Woto is really slice of life and the second half still so but also with a lot of melancholy and bittersweet the first half didn't have along with a very great ending.

    Started catching up on MMY. All I have to say so far is fuck those squid demons and their tentacles engulfing and sinking ships instantly. I'd be rowing in the other direction immediately if I saw that happen.

    Im quite easily amused, so pretty much every ep has been good for me. But yes, the phonecall is probably the best episode so far.

    Bit late on commenting last AKB0048, but i do wonder what will happen between Kanata and Takahashi. Will she eventually steer towards another role, or will Takahashi eventually step down? Im not even sure if either will happen, provided it even gets that far now that they'll be facing an attack. I dare say the two of them are among my fav chars.

    I also like every episode where Elice-chan comes to visit Ken, probably because it's fun to watch everyone treat him like a mega-pervert lawl.

    Sakurasou: Last couple of episodes have been meh, in my opinion. I don't like how the past 3 or so episodes Mashiro has become somewhat of a supporting/background character and her character development has all but stopped. I find that odd and kind of annoying when her blossoming into 'normality' has been such an integral overarching part of the plot so far. Only 5 episodes left now, so I hope they go back to it.
    I'm also a little concerned about what Ryuunosuke said at the end of the preview. I don't want Aoyama to suffer anymore.

    Someone pointed out that Aoyama's VA would make a good Haruhi replacement and I can't unhear it now. She'd make a great Haruhi! And, maybe with how poorly Tomato Market is selling, we might finally get a third Haruhi season (preferably with less time-loops! ಠ_ಠ). A man can dream...

    I have to agree with you here, the episodes seem to get a little bit boring at this moment. Random flashback scenes for 2 episodes now. I want to hear about the present, not what happened before >_>. Aoyama's gonna get dumped at the end anyway, unless Sorata goes for the splendid Harem ending... lol jk. First half of the show was way better in my opinion.

    Edit:
    Unlimited - Interesting to see Hyoubu's back story, especially since I haven't seen the original, what's up with this week's anime though, 2 flashback episodes allready? o.O

    Anyone have a link for a Magi Episode 19 stream? I can't seem to find it on my regular sites, what's up with that?

    Yeah, I definitely feel that the last few episodes haven't been up to par with the rest of the series so far, which for the most part I thoroughly enjoyed. I thought 1-13 were fantastic! 13 especially was a lovely halfway ending/"End of Act 1" kind of episode.
    Hmm. Yeah, it never really looked good for Aoyama on the romance front but the thing I'm worried about is her flunking her VA audition. It'd suck if she ended up not 'winning' on the romance front (even though I'm not particularly keen on Sorata at this point) and failing at her dreams (especially after funding her course herself and going against her parents' wishes to pursue it). I'll be thoroughly pissed off if she's the only kid from Sakurasou that doesn't catch some sort of break! =I

    I'm pretty sure that everyone who watches Sakurasou at this point dislikes Sorata allready, but what do you expect from your typical dense main character? Yeah she'll probably fail the audition, she'll only confess if she makes it, and if she doesn't confess Sorata will choose Mashiro, which is the most probable ending. It would be even more disgusting to see her confess and him not choosing her, wouldn't it? Just my €0.02 though. I doubt even RyuunosukexRita will work out, seeing as there is no development there and there's only 5 episodes left. Unless they rush it I don't really see it happening. I'm hoping I won't be as dissapointed as I expect to be when the anime ends, it isn't looking good at least.

    Very good point about main characters. xD Yeah, I'm not sure it'll work out for those two, but I don't think Ryuunosuke or Maid-chan would particularly mind that! Also, Rita has already had her disappointment/hurt there on Valentine's, so I'd be surprised if they do that again (if they go back to that story at all).
    There's still time to turn it around, but it'd really need to start next week, otherwise, yeah, I'm worried about being disappointed too (which is a shame because I've loved it up until recently). Think the turning point for me was how blasé everybody was about Sorata's sister not getting into their school. Kinda shitty reactions, especially from him.

    There's also waaaaay worse MC's that I compare everyone to.
    Yeah, there are moments when he's an alright guy, but he just gets so pissy all the time and at everybody and everything. >.< The kind of guy who might be in your circle of friends, but isn't actually specifically friends with anyone in particular in the group and you sometimes wonder why he's there at all.

    And, you're right. There are definitely worse MCs...

    Wai hate Shinji so much? He might have been a whiney weakling, but he still was more interesting than 90% of current protagonists.

    Sure, he was interesting. But far from likeable, in my opinion. The deal-breakers for me were, in End Of Evangelion, when he pretty much let's Misato die because he's having a catatonic tantrum and in the aftermath of the quasi-apocalypse, the first thing he does is start strangling the only other apparent survivor, who just so happens to be one of the few people in his life that cares about him. It's stuff like that and the fact that he becomes so self-absorbed during his existential crises that he simply doesn't care about the fate of humanity that shows how incredibly solipsistic he is. He's had a crappy childhood and because of that he thinks it's okay to see everyone else's lives as meaningless. It sucks that he's had it rough and he'd actually be a really sympathetic character if he had a little more stoic dignity/self-respect, but since he doesn't he just comes across as a selfish pussy. >.<

    He's definitely interesting. You're absolutely right. But, he's also utterly contemptible, in my opinion.

    Any suggestions?

    I think the Misato's death, attacking Asuka and other disagreeable acts of his(fapfapfap?) illustrated his mental breakdown very well. Because, let's face it, he had every right to lose it after what had happened. On one hand, he'd be more likeable had he been less of a selfish pussy - but I can see where those aspects of his were coming from. TBH the main thing I like about him is that he was not made out to be inhumanely strong mentally - just a picture of absolutely normal, average kid; in way over his head.

    Mai-Hime is very good and a little bit similar to Madoka. If not for last episode, the SO IMMA GONNA REVIVE EVERYONE! DEUS EX MACHINA HO, FUCK THE TENSION AND DRAMA! action, it'd be nearly as good as Madoka in my eyes.
