That gif is awesome.
On a sidenote, Hyakka Ryouran continues to get a better plot. Wierdest looking monkey ive ever seen. In more than one way towards the ending.
Have to agree on both points. The artstyle is the awesome part of it, aside from the generic fanservice. Putting that aside, we now have 4 master class on their team. Question is if there'll be more or not.
Meanwhile, i finished the currently translated Nyotai-ka. Annoying that the group dropped it. Guess i will have to find the raws and translate it on my own.
i hope Shingeki no Kyojin goes further than 12 episodes, after starting the manga 24 episodes would be more suited to it and it would be a shame to see it cut down to 12(unless they are doing multiple seasons)

Just finished the manga "Kagami no Kuni no Harisugawa". It was a good manga. Basically a guy who gets stuck inside a mirror. He and the girl he likes have knowledge of this, and if anyone else gets to know, he will be stuck in it forever. He can however get out by confessing his love and it being mutual. He only has one chance at confessing, if it fails, hes stuck forever aswell :P
The ending was a disappointment, and a bit sad, but also bittersweet. Happy ending, but still not happy ending. Not the kind of manga i would recommend to people who want a 100% happy ending. Its still gnawing on my mind... I can however recommend it if you like comedy with some twists. It has a lot of slice of life rom/com atmosphere.
Valvrave (Split cour)
Shingeki no Kyojin
Not sure -
Zettai Bouei Leviathan
Also ones slightly more than one cour -
OreImo (15 episodes, so 1 1/2ish)
Gargantia (15 episodes, 3 of them being OVAs)
Top of the season for me is easily Gargantia. I adore the atmosphere and I could watch seasons and seasons of pure slice of life stuff that takes place on the Gargantia fleet. The character models are up there with Tinkle's in my absolute favorites, and the combination of so many themes has me salivating. Waterworld, Mecha, Steampunk, plus an awesome MC and a great lead female. It being done by Urobuchi just tops it off for me.
I'll be depressed if it remains one cour, this world already feels so vibrant to me and so different from anything else I've seen I really don't want to see it go and it's just started. The atmosphere alone so matches with my tastes (my love of the ocean and the mystical parts of living in a Waterworld like that, especially the scene with the lightning bugs and the lightning on the water was so amazing.
Though I was also a fan of Avatar just because of the world and how it was set up. I didn't give a damn about the story because the world was so amazing. I love shows, books, or movies that take place in a setting that's so different and out there from anything you'd think.
Also for anyone interested, a list of some of the references in episode one of Haiyore! W: http://notredrevie.ws/2013/04/14/hai...2-parody-list/
I hope this show maintains its strong start and the amazing atmosphere its created so far. I'd be really disappointed if it just ended up floundering halfway through. After seeing several of Urubachi's works and the amazing start this anime has had though, I don't see that happening fortunately. I think a slice of life version of this show would be pretty awesome too. A slice of life set in the Gargantia universe would certainly be interesting to see. Here's to hoping the show's a two cour.
