Did you drop it before or after the episode 5 reveal?Because to me that's where things started getting real interesting,and I've been liking it more and more every week since then,more so than I ever expected.
Though in all honesty the show I'd rather try and "sell" to you would be jojo's bizarre adventure,has that one ever been on your radar?
A couple months back, I had to cut down on anime due to RL getting busier. So some shows were dropped/stalled. Psycho-Pass and Shin Sekai Yori made the cut because I saw them as the creme de la creme of Fall 2012. LB! made the cut because I wanted something very upbeat/lighthearted/heartwarming to balance out with PP and SSY (LB! also being a big deal helped). Then there was Muv-Luv, carried over from Summer (Muv-Luv I'm now a bit behind on since I made time for Sakurasou).
The shows that didn't make the cut and were dropped/stalled: Chuunibyou, Code: Breaker, Girls und Panzer, and yeah, Zetsuen no Tempest.
It's not that I thought they were bad, but rather that I had to make hard choices. Recently, though, I have had more free time, hence me marathoning up to the most recent episode of Chuunibyou just a couple days ago.
Anyway, sorry for the long explanation, lol. What do you have to say about Zetsuen no Tempest?
I'm not part of the kyoani fandom really,and in all honesty am stalled halfway through hyouka ,need to get around to finishing it.
Also the next episode of sakurasou can't come soon enough because this whole debate is just starting to irritate me,especially since people are assuming they know exactly what the character's backstory are when they don't.
