Yeah, I don't get the sales success of Haiyore! Nyaruko-san either. I checked out its first episode, and it seems pretty generic to me. I'm also not personally aware of its source material being insanely popular or anything like that Odd. What's your theory to its (likely) sales success?
Between you and totoum, I decided to finally start watching Mysterious Girlfriend X. And I have to say that I really liked its first episode! I'll probably post on the series thread for it after I've watched the 2nd episode.
I like the romantic pairing here, and I like how it's really their story. No love triangles, no harem shenanigans, just a normal (but creative/imaginative) guy and a cute (but in a different way, and quirky) girl.
Mysterious Girlfriend X Ep2, Lupin: Fujiko Mine Ep2, Space Brothers Ep3. Three freaking brilliant episodes! Most fun have I've had from currently airing material in about two years. This season is giving me good times.
True, but when the issue of Character A vs Character B being a voting one for 6 months is at hand, care factor suddenly goes up. I voted mainly on the premise of who I'd rather have to vote for over and over.
Manga readers claim Zetman is 15 volumes long and the adaptation is going to condense that into one season. So...no idea how that will turn out.
Space Bros. fits in somewhere between Planetes and Chihayafuru for me. Gritty, masculine reality of the former and the youthful optimism of the latter.
Lupin: Fujiko Mine - For a few minutes, I thought it was a Shaft show...then I just sat back and lapped it up because it turned out not to be. It's so incredibly indulgent and gratuitous, but Fujiko is still allowed her class, allure and feminista like in the 70s series. I'll be amused to see how you find it.
