Aye. Cause of those conniving swines therik and KiraRin, I am now watching ANOTHER anime that I didn't intend to watch.

And damn the both of them, I ALREADY LIKE IT AFTER FIVE MINUTES. Gah!

Hehehe! I ought to have this thing reviewed by tomorrow. Glad you're enjoying it, Veev (and enjoying it enough to spell the title wrong in your haste to put up the thread ;P).

Cool and spicy indeed.

Episode 1:

Okay, good introduction. Animation is wonderful, characters are funny, and the pubescent-looking bishies make me swoon. Haha. I'm not getting 'better than Cardcaptor Sakura' vibes yet, but there is quite a lot of room with 50 episodes to go. So here's hoping!

OMG Michael Jackon's 'Cry' is on. Excellent break before episode 2.

I didn't say it was better than CCS, just that it has a more modern twist - especially when looking at Amu's emo clothes. Not that its a bad thing, she looks adorable in whatever she wears. The show does get better and better as it progresses, but does get fillerific towards the end. However, as the new chapter starts with Doki, its made of god and win once more ^^

There is much more "Carry-on up the Fallopian tube" innuendo to come. One of the boys wants to put his "Humpty key" into Amu's "Dumpty lock"

;p

Episode 5:

This series is making me believe there's a chibi inside of me. @_@

Episode 6:

Yawn? It's trundling along at average. I did expect it to be all repetitive and episodic at first because that's how mahou shoujo always work, but I swear I got more of an instant reaction from CCS. This show just makes me miss Princess Tutu immensely.

Doesn't help that every single thing I pick to watch now is just shit. These days, it makes me real bitter and impatient when I'm not at least 7/10 entertained.

EDIT: I should like to add, the only thing keeping my interest is the bishie-furry. I adore his character design and can't look away when he's on screen. Come on, Shugo Chara, step it up a bit.

Episode 7:

Add chibi to the list of things I now hate. Animators obviously think this compensates for actual comedy. Also, this show doesn't have nearly enough bishie-furry action.

I do recall that it did start of slowly (and there may be other slow patches in there as well) but it probably helped that I was taken in by its cuteness. Honestly, every time Amu restored someone's X-egg and the would-be self popped out to say thanks, it was so damn sweet it almost moved me to tears. I'm a sucker for that kinda thing, I guess =/.

In any case, you're right to keep watching it for Ikuto's sake. I hope that you find something else to like about it soon enough :).
