The shows I'm watching;
Yumekui Merry [2ep] - This may end up as style over substance, but I really love the visuals of this show. The Dream World and it's Demons look fantastic. And even though the character design does look kind of commercially sweet, there are the beautiful backgrounds and odd angles in the animation, that give this show an extra touch! The plot seems rather slow paced, but I like where it's going. Nightmares trying to enter the world of the wake is interesting enough.
Kimi ni Todoke 2nd Season [1ep] - I liked the first season, so it's a given! Although the plot can drag at times, I want to see how the relationship between the pairs will develop. I'm more interested in Chizuru x Ryu and Ayane x Pin, then the main pair though!
Beelzebub - I enjoyed the manga, so I'm sticking with this anime for a while. As most Shounen Jump adaptations this doesn't quite live up to the source material. They are abusing the electrocution joke so much, it's starting to hurt the show. Hopefully as the story progresses, they'll stop relaying on it for cheep laughs.
Mitsudomoe Zouryouchuu! [2ep] - What can I say. I love the sisters. Specially Hitoha and Mitsuba. Sometimes it really doesn't take much more!
Mazinkaiser SKL [1ep] - I LOVEd Shin Mazinger, for it was a deliciously violent mindfuck, with a great story. Mazinkaiser on the other hand is a disappointment for me. It's one of those action fan service shows, where a bunch of cool looking mechas have an all out battle, without to much of a focus on the story. Alas, the action was cool and it will only be 3 episodes, so why not!
Kore wa Zombie desu ka? [2ep] -
Level E [2ep] -
Wolverine [2ep] - Iron Man was a train wreck. At least Wolverine seems to have a proper story, that goes beyond the foe of the week formula. The supporting characters seem to be a bit more interesting as well. I like the assassins, especially Kikyou seems like real eye candy.
Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magika [2ep] - Style over substance yet again? As of the first two episodes Madoka really doesn't look all that different than any other Mahou Shojo anime. If it wasn't for the psychedelic fight sequences & Kajura's dark soundtrack, I doubt there would be so much hype around this show. The main characters are rather bland and boring as of now. On the other hand, it's so obviously hinted at a dark twist that will lead into a faustian tragedy, that it's impossible not to continue with this!
Gosick [2ep] -
Freezing [2ep] - There are so many great Korean manhwa, that would deserve to get animated and the Japanese choose this?! And if the source material wasn't ecchie enough, the japs remove what little good the manhwa had going for it and replace it with disintegrating schoolgirl uniforms. I love gory anime, I can handle good fan service, but I sure as hell can't stand plots that insult my intelligence. Bottom line...I'll leave this one to the fappers!
Starry☆Sky [3ep] - This is obviously aimed at people that liked the otome games. Everyone else will find this underwhelming, as there is no proper story told. Just short introductions to the protagonists of the game. Unfortunately every one of this bishies seems to have a sappy qlishe back story. Eye candy alone doesn't make the anime good.
Rio: Rainbow Gate [2ep] - So incredibly stupid, it's almost good again. It sure has the surprise factor. You never know just how stupid the plot will get in the next episode. And you can't say the show isn't creative. Unfortunately, the excessive fan service kills this for me.
Infinite Stratos [2ep] - A harem show by numbers! Yet another bland mail lead, perusing female eroge stereotypes.
Cardfight!! Vanguard [2ep] - A poor man's Yugi Oh! There's something incredible boring, about watching teenage boys save the world, with a card game!
Onii-chan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janain Dakara ne!! [2ep] - A cherry boy's fantasy!
Dragon Crisis [2ep] -
