    It was very good until it was over...
    There's the ovas too, but they are a serious mess and are mostly for fans of the manga, not directly related to the anime though...

    I will not be Iris's passenger, my life is too important for that.

    Edit: Car is 300SL, no computer assisted traction control back then. Give her something more manageable instead, I might reconsider.

    There is a newer version of the car, the guys from top gear (i think the ones from the American program) think the old one is better...

    Just watched C3, the anime is surprisingly good, interesting, it is actually quite original and good looking too...
    New enemy\character is interesting as well, she isnt evil like the bitch, and being voiced by Chiwa saito and sounding like Homura makes her even more likable, hope she is added to the mc's harem...

    Either way if you don't have traction control with a driver like Irisviel I will not be the passenger .

    Other than C3, F/Z, Guilty Crown, Mirai Nikki, Shana III and Ika Musume S2, what else should I watch from this season so far? Ben-to and Boku wa tomodachi are going to be picked up when I have time.

    Working, you cant go wrong with that one...
    Horizon where every episode gives you a mind fuck, you seriously need to pay a lot of attention and thinking not to get lot...

    Persona is kinda meh so far...

    UN-GO is seriously good, a good detective show...

    Tamayura is a sort of K-on, A-channel replacement, cute girls doing cute things, the theme is photography and it a very lightered show to watch with good comedy levels and a very good cast...
    Check the Ova first if you want to, or not because episode 1 happens before the ova, ep 2 onwards takes place after the ova...

    Last exile, is the most hyped anime of the season, the pressure on a studio that is betting its resurrection on it and the quality is astounding to say the least, although character have been dumbed down and modified (probably), it is still one of a kind...

    Carnival phantasm, 2 ep/month if im not mistaken, it would be crime to miss this, type moon character are having a blast with it, like watching Berserker going on an errand to buy Ilya's some batteries for her playstation pad and destroying half city in the process...

    I think this pretty much covers everything, the rest are just harem/fan service types...
    There one about cute boys doing cute things
    There's bakuman season 2, only if you watched the first, if not dont bother...

    And then there's Chihayafuru, i think its a very good anime, but the theme is very original and might not be interesting to everyone...
     
    Fourstaff says thanks.

    I've noticed that most of my fav animes were made around 2004-2006.

    New animes are not bad, but they've been using a lot of computer effects which make everything shiny and "sharp". I don't really hate them, but it doesn't give you "that" feeling like in older anime.

    It probably costs more to product quality as Ghibli studio, but older animes seem to be up there at least.

    Don't anime nowadays seem bland to you? Like how the background is drawn - a lot of lighting effects but lacking in details.

    The script for dialogues are not as good too. There are something wrong with it... as it's not as naturally or believable. It seems as it is written by a very young writer that doesn't put much thought in it.

    Haven't watched Working S1 yet, so I will skip that for the time being. Will check out Horizon then. Probably not going to watch UN-GO or Tamayura. Haven't watched the first Last Exile, so Season 2 is out too. Watching Carnival Phantasm, only T-M fans need to apply, others will not understand. Haven't watched Bakuman either, and will check out Chihayafuru.

    It took 5 eps to get to some semblance of a story, and it's barely a viable plot.

    Has nothing to do with the first Last Exile, just happens to share the same world. Much like how the first Valkyria Chronicles is related to Valkyria Chronicles II (I'm talking about the games here) only by the fact that the story takes place in the very same country.

    Thats true, you will only be lost for a couple episodes while watching LE2, after that you start to understand whats going on, even i was a little lost at first, have watched LE ages ago, and i actually downloaded some dvd rips to watch beforehanded, but i havent yet...

    And i think you could try Un-go and see if it strikes your curiosity...

    last exile - steampunk airplanes.


    once you remember that much, the rest makes sense pretty quickly, since the stories arent really tied together (at least so far)

    Ep 4, was reaally good, Sylvana is back, and with modifications...

    I just started to re-watch the original, it still looks great after all this years, although Fam Fan looks better, more refined animation...
    But its good to see Claus and Lavie again in the original...

    Shaft is to busy right now for more Arakawa, they are producing 3 Madoka movies and are going to start very soon new bakemonagatari works, these are very high budget works that require a lot of effort from the company, they are also producing a new Hidamari Sketch called Dai 4-ki and just released a 2 ep Hidamari ova...

    Its good to see one of the best modern studios doing so well and bring high quality anime for all of us...

    Perhaps when they have some free time they will make more Arakawa...
