Watched the first episode of House of Five. It is certainly interesting. The art is gorgeous as expected from Manglobe. Looks like the show won't make any attempt at drawing out any decently animated action however. It will, rather, focus on the topic of Mansanosuke and develop his character from the shadow of the projected image of Yaichi. The story has my attention.
LOL trust me Ill be watching Occult for atleast 2 more epis before I give my final judgement. The reason Kuro 2 made me jump outta my chair is that the ENTIRE fandom was trolled by both the mangaka and the production company into thinking Sebby and Ciel werent gonna be in this season and it was totally gonna be about Alois and Claude which it was til the commerical break and them BOOM YOUVE BEEN TROLLED! it was freaking awesome
I did start but Im not loving Occult as much as I wanted, I find Maya a bit annoying right now. Hoping the guy makes it better. Epi 1 wasnt bad but I wasnt totally impressed. For all the horror anime out this season Im kinda disappointed so far, only Kuroshitsuji 2 epi 1 totally made me jump outta my seat but I have high hopes for Shiki.
Have you started on Occult yet? I checked it out, and this one has real potential. The lead female is instantly likable. I always had soft for ladies who can hack, but when they are hacking away at their zombie dad who is quite dead... god that is so hot. Let's go liven that thread up. I see you started it.
I've been downloading the episodes, but just didn't have enough time to start with another series. If I remember correctly Manglobe was the production company so I was already looking forward to it. The art (complimenting the Samurai theme) is also on my alley. The reason I'm holding on to it is because of my summer schedule, but this is one series I've been looking forward to since last year's winter season.
