The Fall season is one of the most disappointing I've ever encountered. Just sayin'.

Yes, I didn't really hate SAO (normally I'd just consider it as crap and move on), I hated the brain-dead audiance that hyped it to heavens throughout the whole run even if the flaws were painfully obvious and colossal. There are many examples of the same shit going on each season: each time when something that's not the part of the chain (harem, school life or comedy). If it's aimed on the wider mass it instantly gets into the spotlight no matter how shitty it may be. Companies today can litterally do just that, create something a bit different that the usual menu (they don't even have to make it worth it) and there's about 60% that it will get accepted, and if they aim for shounen-type fans it's definite.
While I didn't find Psycho-pass on the same level as GitS (it had some problems i couldn't overlook), the latter is quite popular and pretty much the cult-classic. Psycho-pass sales unfortunately did werry poorly, so there won't be any sexy back. GitS is getting a new movie... and I'm sceptical as hell... I mean, did you see how it will look and sound (major is a loli with girly voice. Pls)... that's not GitS I know.
I don't know what to think of anime industry these days. Everyone pretty much plays safe, and when they don't the sales turn out very bad. Thery don't have balls as older studios did like Gainax who never played by rules (the old staff of Gainax is gone), or Manglobe when they decided to do Ergo Proxy (which was superb and unique), etc, etc... point is, without risk there's a small chance we'll be getitng something great, which is quite sad. My hope lies with new Studio Trigger (a.k.a. ex-Gainax) which could flip some tables.
But there were some really good anime lately. Most recent anime that were good and really stood out in the crowd, imo, were: JoJo and From the New World. The rest wasn't on the same level... ok, arguably Attack on Titan... but that's another story.
I absolutely agree with you. And even about the part about Code Geass and Guilty Crown. I didn't find CG as bad as Guilty Crown, which was a major crap, but it definitely is over-rated as hell.
Glad someone read my review.
Well I do not know if you celebrate Christmas but I hope you have a great day off from work!
Yeah the Shion or "eye opening arc" is one of my favorites too, I actually own the manga version of it which expresses the feelings Shion's going through better than the anime. I guess the reason I like Higurashi so much is because the first season is all about tragedy and the second season is about overcoming that tragedy when Rika had all but given up hope. Good reviews by the way. Also, I watched Steins;Gates and enjoyed it a lot, especially Rintaro Okabe's mad scientist in turmoil personality.
how is little busters so far? i've been thinking about giving it a go :)
