Just watched the first ep of Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru Sou Desu yo?
Pretty interesting! Seems like it will have a decent amount of action and the setting has a lot of potential.
Also a half-Australian/half-Japanese seiyuu is making her voice acting debut as one of the main characters which is pretty cool

I didn't get that those girls were supposed to be sisters. When in the episode does it say that? I've only seen the first ep. It seemed promising though.


The older brother calls them the Yagami Sisters. I forget when


I must have missed that. The second episode makes it clear in any event. I'm intrigued by the show, although I think it runs the risk of trying too hard to be wacky.

It didn't seem to me have any of the atmosphere that Spice and Wolf had. I had to drop it, which is okay because there's other stuff to watch.


Hm did you only watch the 1st ep? I just finished the 3rd and its honestly quite intriguing in my opinion


I watched the first two. It's not that I thought it was awful, but I just have too much other stuff to watch to keep going with something that I'm not into. The awesomeness of Full Metal Alchemist beckons.

Vividred Operation:
Liked it a lot. Had a lot of the same energy of Strike Witches. Transformation sequence was well done. 1st ep was a winner for me. Seems to be heading into sci-fi magical girl territory.

Tamako Market:

This was pretty good too. It was a bit boring but with KyoAni you know something is gonna happen. Interesting cliffhanger. And it has all of the moe-blob elements I was looking for! Also the bird is voiced by the same dude who was Kayneth in Fate/Zero so I can't stop imagining him whenever the bird talks. And the animation was not nearly as crisp as I expected. Hopefully that picks up.

Boku wa Tomodachi:
Thought it was hilarious, especially the ending. Jeez I couldn't stop laughing after that part. Bunch of new characters in the opening, I am interested in seeing them.

Falstaffxx wrote:Turns out Tamako Market is about a talking bird. idk... :dontknow:


No its about mochi! :D


The first episode of Vividred was pretty cool. I'm going to try a couple more and see if I get into it.

Vividred is the show of the season for me so far. It's well put together. I get a blend of a lot of different things. And that opening is just too good!

I don't know how I feel about the squirrel, but I guess that's the magical girl mascot animal. Clever, lol.

I'd say Maoyuu Maou Yuusha could technically count as a Seinen and I'm liking it so far

You don't find it boring at all? 3 episodes in, and I'm bored. Maybe if there was some action...

I think it does a good job of keeping it suspenseful. It is way too peaceful for the setting, I get the sense of a storm coming on the horizon. Thats how I feel anyway

Recently started watching Kokoro Connect. I wasn't sure it would be something I wanted to watch, as high school/slice of life and body swapping didn't seem particularly appealing to me at first. But it actually seems to have some depth to its story so I think I'm going to keep watching it. And I like the voice actress for Inaba, who I think I first heard as Cal Devens in Phantom. Sigh...that Cal Devens was sooo hot...

My favorite shows this season are continuations - Bakuman and AKB0048. The 3 new ones I'm watching are Sasami-san, Vividred, and Senran Kagura.

The Unlimited at least to me is easily the best new show this season, but then again my taste don't quite match up with some of you in this thread.
Dallas Mavericks:
Cousins l Mahinmi
Young l Morris l Gordon
MKG l Morris
Beal l Burks l Goodwin
Augustin l Burks
309/352
Raz Simone - No Tellin'
