    The main point of frustration for me this week was Irregular at High School Magic. That first episode was slow, bland and cut out a key scene from the start of the manga. The sister has a magic battle and utterly owns face. It's crucial in establishing a sense of equality between the two siblings and that the sister isn't just a mere brother-lover. But within a few minutes, I could tell those adapting this title are keen on cutting her down and making the brother look superior from the get go. Not to mention removing the shounen/action aspect, which was essential in keeping things interesting in the manga amidst the info dumps. I expected a few adaptations to go wrong, but this was one I thought they wouldn't botch. Guess I was wrong, but better wrong about this than other titles I'm sticking with.

    Your instincts were right. This adaptation is going right for the fetishes and the tropes. A real shame.

    Thanks for the info. Well, to be fair, it did have an interesting first episode. I actually liked the bit where the girl got her knee stuck in the drain and almost died. It's strange, sure, but it's also pretty different, so I liked that scene.

    I will be sticking with Brynhildr for at least the three-episode try. Kuroneko does show a lot of promise.

    R3, for the record, the reason people compared Brynhildr to Elfen Lied is because they have the same author in their original manga form.

    Okay, my thoughts on April.

    Potentially going to be the best season in years.

    However, those three titles you listed first - I didn't click with them at all. Akuma no Riddle actually creeped me out big time.

    What I did like:

    One Week Friends
    Mushishi S2
    Rowdy Wrestler Sumo Matsutaro
    Brynhildr
    The World is Still Beautiful


    What disappointed me:

    Irregular at Magic High School
    Akuma no Riddle
    Mangaka-san to Assistant-san


    Kindaichi I'm also going to investigate. Knights of Sidonia is on Friday, that's the other one I needed to check out.


    The last time I truly liked a season was April 2010. If those 5 shows as well as Kindaichi stay good, this will be one heck of a season.

    Later tonight I will. I got new headphones last night but night class left me unable to watch anything. I've got tests on Thursday and Friday which I need to study for. It's about 1pm here now, so, I guess I will in about 7-8 hours then give you my thoughts.

    I'm slowly making my way through the new Spring 2014 shows.

    I liked the first episodes for WIXOSS, Captain Earth, and Akuma no Riddle. All three have very nice/stylish visuals, so at least I'll be in for a good visual treat even if the stories don't hold up that well.

    I'm loving the Love Live! sequel, as its pretty much just what I want in a more upbeat show.

    I'll be checking out Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei later tonight.

    Any shows you want to recommend? I'm open to a suggestion or two, at least.

    Just a thought on a steam punk comment you made recently.

    If only anime had someone like Caitlyn
