This is really dumb. I’m not sure why I like it, but I do. Maybe because the main character is practically the opposite of your average lead anime character… Reminds me a bit of Hajime, whom I recall a ton of people hated…

Amazingly stylish start.

I can muster up some degree of enthusiasm for the top 11. But most importantly… HIGH SCHOOL DXD S3!!! OMG BEST SEASON EVER!!! (Also Sidonia S2!!!! And Oregairu.)

What do you guys think about this season?

  1. I haven’t been too excited about any of the new crop of anime, with the exception of the return of both Gintama and Grisaia.

    Gintama is, well, Gintama, with all that implies. However, is it my imagination or has the quality of the animation deteriorated slightly? I noticed the lack of the Sunrise logo – could that be the cause?

    The Labyrinth of Grisaia – just wow. Seriously, though, could anyone survive the things Yuji went through? I had to rewind a few times because of the “did I just see what I thought I just saw?” factor.

    1. I couldn’t get through the last season of Gintama so I’m not sure. It’s still pretty funny though.

      Yeah, Grisaia…. lol…

  2. Have you tried watching up to ep 3 of ore monogatari? Believe it or not, ep 1-3 only cover chapter 1 of the manga so episode 1 doesn’t really give a good sense of the overall series.

    1. Yep! I’m shocked they started dating so quickly. Unless this pulls out something crazy soon (his friend started the fire to make him look good, the girl is secretly nuts) I doubt I’ll stick with it though… just doesn’t excite me.
