Finished up School Rumble and Nadia recently.
School Rumble was wonderful... though I have to admit that I hit a bit of a plateau with my enjoyment in the last half of Season 2. The central Harima/Tenma/Eri stuff remained golden, but some of the material for the rest of the ensemble just wasn't up to par (the whole running gag with Hanai and the kite, the Aztec village thing, the magical girl episode, etc.) That said, I consider this one of the highest-caliber comedies out there, and when it's on, it absolutely rocks.
Nadia ended up surprising me by how much I loved it. I don't think it's a show for everyone - it's definitely a little "cartoony" compared to most modern-day anime - but the meat-and-potatoes of the main plot is fairly strong, and there's a real charm to the characters that makes the cartooniness not bother me too much. I love the sweetness of the relationship that develops between Nadia and Jean, I love Nadia's temperamentalness, I love how Grandis/Sanson/Hanson start out as typical bumbling cartoon villains, but end up being valuable, skilled allies. Definitely a series that I'm glad I finally got around to watching.
Picked up the first volume of Blue Seed, and I *really* like it a lot so far. The main character, Momiji, is positioned as the typical heroine-who-discovers-she-has-magical-powers, but I like that she jumps right into helping fight the good fight, instead of the more reluctant, whiny, "Why Me?" sort of character we get in that scenario.
It's also a rather interesting dynamic, that her main value is as a *sacrifice*... That the monsters have a vested interest in keeping her alive until they can do it under certain parameters, while, theoretically, her human allies are somewhat suspect, since someone, somewhere in the organization must have at least *considered* that the easiest way to take out the monsters would be to just kill her. It'll be interesting to see how/whether that plays out.
I got halfway through the second disc of Nerima Daikon Brothers and decided there just wasn't any point in continuing. It was a fun gimmick for a few episodes, but the repetitiousness doesn't make for a very good series, overall. (And I have to say that, if your "gimmick" for a show is that it's a *musical*, you might want to have more than four tunes that you recycle with different lyrics OVER and OVER and OVER again in every episode.)
Also not bothering to continue with AD Police (TV) beyond the first episode. I'm usually a lot more patient than this, and normally give a series at least 4-6 episodes to convince me, but everything about this first episode screams low-budget crap-fest. I thought going in that it might at least be worth it for the bishonen-quotient, but they do this weird lopsided mouth thing that completely spoils any eye-candy enjoyment. Blah.
