Fractale had a good first episode. The designs remind me a lot of Miyazaki designs. If they handle things right, it could be a fantastic series, otherwise it could end up being a show that attempted a really strong story and fell flat.

I thought it was more of Miyazaki and the dopples like the dude who drew Bo-bobo...yeah.

Beelzebub 2 was SO DAMN FUNNY!

ditto for Zombie 2. Mahou Shojo gets bitch slapped.

Zombie 2 wasn't that funny. I hope they pick back up.
Madoka 2 was very interesting. This show has the potential to make a name for itself in the magical girl genre. It's just so...odd.

Okay, Madoka 3 confirms that this series will not be like any other magical girl anime ever. I'm changing this to a highly recommended rating regardless of whether you generally like magical girls or not.

Hourou Musukou is actually looking pretty good. If you like drama, I recommend this one as well.

Dragon Crisis 2 was kinda weird. It's so far not actiony enough to appeal to me, but there's not enough emotional depth to hook me either. I want to like this series, but it's looking to be hard.

I still haven't watched Cardfight!! Vanguard, and I'm not sure if I will.

The producers of Fractale got butthurt that people were still pirating it despite them simulcasting it on Funimation, so they've pulled the simulcast for that. What this means is that piracy is now the ONLY way to view Fractale. Good job, producers.

Freezing episode 2...if it had a sex scene, it would have been a straight up porno.

I have one thing to say to that... Episode 3...
Also at the rate they're going I expect your statement to be proven true by episode 5 or 6 tongue.gif

Beelzebub 3 cements this show's status as the funniest thing all season. Highly recommended.

Rio 3 was all stupidity and none of the fun of the first two episodes. Not recommended.

Wandering Son/Hourou Musukou 2 was also very solid. This will probably be the best show all season. Highly recommended.

Gosick 3 confirms the show for awesome. Cannot recommend enough.

Level E 2 was kinda weird. It looks like this show is gonna be more comedy than sci fi. Kind of like Men In Black. Not recommended.

Fractale 2 was good. The show is good but I don't think it'll end up being as good as Wandering Son. Recommended.

IS 2 and 3 finish off the lead's core harem, and the explanations given for why any of the girls likes him are nonexistent outside of overused crap. Dueling childhood friends and somebody he lost to in a robot fight on a technicality. Only recommended if you enjoy exoskeleton battles.

Yumekui Merry 3 indicates that this show is probably gonna be kind of a light drama/slice of life/action series. It's not action-based, but when it does do action it's executed pretty well. I think we're going to start seeing more action from this point on. I still can't make a solid recommendation either way on this show.


I've made a spreadsheet to track my reactions.

Freezing: This show annoyed me. I don't mind fanservice, but mixing sex appeal with brutal military combat? No! It just doesn't fucking work! Not recommended.

If you disagree, congratulations, you have different tastes than me. This is a reflection of MY personal views of each show.

Well... If the only thing you find interesting is the fanservice... Yeah I can see how the show wouldn't be good for someone...

Don't get me wrong, I like tits as much as anybody, but brutal combat and skanky outfits do not go together in my book.

If I want tits, I'll watch Queen's Blade, or Samurai Girls, or [insert any number of anime that are just excuses to shove boobs into every other frame].

Are those random ratings or your progress on these series? Guessing the latter?

Looks to be his progress in each show. Mine should be self-evident from the spreadsheet, which I constantly update.
