    ehhh.... yeah, but it could also just be loads of bullshit if they dont take it anywhere. it could easily lose its promise and fall on its ass if they arent careful with the plot/episode planning (read: destroyed by filler/ending)

    Take a look at kamissama dolls from sumer season: http://www.animeorb.info/plugins/forum/forum_viewtopic.php?19265.last

    I think it looks promising...

    Natsume yujin-chou is a fantastic anime and its on its third season...
    Baka to test is one of the best comedies ever made...
    Keep an eye on Gainax, they gonna do Dantali no shoka, i know everything Gainax touches turns into gold, this title might be something interesting...
    More blood is never to much, if it is better than Blood + and CLAMP doing characters, Im in...
    Nuraryon, for those who watched the first season, it was entertaining, it seems the real deal starts with this second season...
    J.C staff's title might be worth taking a look too, Kami-Sama no Memo-chou might be interesting...
    Bones is producing Nº6, the premise looks interesting and the art good...

    There will be some good OVAs to, related to anime we have already watch and some good movies, ghibli for ex has another movie in production, Negima, hayate no gotoku, sora otoshimono, the awaited FMA movie and even sengoku basara...
    But this movies will only be available on disk starting december\January

    Yea, or it could get end like Merry last season. So many ideas, but dropped them all for a lame ending...

    Just like I'm waiting for Hellsing Ultimate to get done so I can buy the set... That's going on for when... lol.. Yeah, I know it's going to be.. Maybe not so much with FMA due to the fact that they can "kiddy" it...

    Preliminary judgements on the shows whose first episode I've just finished watching:
    Hidan no Aria - exciting
    Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko - promising
    Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai - boring

    So far i am liking Steins Gate quite a lot but as Mussels said they better be careful because anime based on the time concept (generally any movie all together) can fall short really fast because they confuse and loose track of what they are doing.

    That's very true. OP has BIG LETTERS stating that fact.. I don't have a problem with someone saying "pm me"... as long as it doesn't give anything it's not suppose to... I have no problem with the infraction, or closing of the thread if not used right.. Hell, I'll close it myself if people feel it's needed to do that sort of thing..

    Its programed that way, Japan is stopping to watch Madoka...
    Actually, im starting to see the mbs raws...
    Edit: gg just released ep 11-12 and the site is out of commission already, that and 3 other releases today, the server is melting...

    New edit: Shaft did a fantastic work with Madoka and redefined the genre and set the standard very high, it will be probably a while before another story of this level is created, but im sure for Shaft, that wont be much of a problem...
    I think the ending was very satisfying...

    Akisora has been banned and discontinued because it depicted incest rather than the ero bits.
    The inquisition has begun.:(

    Because it was not finished until yesterday... Now you won't have to wait painfully for EP11 & 12 like many of us had endured...
    Mussels says thanks.

    I dropped it after 3 episodes.

    Still haven't watched Deadman Wonderland and Ao no Exorcist (I was doing my mini-review :laugh:).

    Why? Its one of the best anime I watched (in terms of storyline) so far. And the art direction is also very good (unless you don't like that particular style). You should give it another shot, the storyline gets much better.

    I never really liked "mahou shoujo" shows. I wouldn't have watched Houkago no Pleiades because of that, except it was quite short so I gave it a try. It wasn't remarkable however.

    I gave Madoka a try, but I didn't really like anything about it.

    I won't watch Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha for the same reason. They share the same director too.

    In general I don't like Shinbo's shows too. The ones I did watch were exceptions, like Bakemonogatari, Dance in the Vampire Bund, Arakawa Under the Bridge and Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru.

    Personal preference, eh? I watch all anime as long as they are either funny or good regardless of genre. That is, when I have time.

    For me anything Shaft does is an instant masterpiece, even hidamari sketch was great...
    Look at denpa ona from this season, it looks fabulous...
    Worth looking into are C, its got some very good demon designs and an interesting concept...
    Anohana for the great story, some are even expecting Clannad greatness from it...

    Damn... Who ever not watching Madoka doesn't even know what epicness they are missing.
