Yea this is why I haven't expressed any strong opinions about preferences or whatnot to you on this, because you really have to decide on your own for this. Pretty much any strong opinion would poison the well.
You can find my posts in that subforum, though probably after you finish.
Episodes 7-11 are the doldrums of the series I felt. It wasn't even that it was bad or anything, it just gave the feeling of me wondering why I was watching it. It just goes nowhere. The "extra episodes" are better though they have their own set of issues. I just hope that season 2 doesn't end up like that.
Eurgh, I had forgotten how slow the start of OreImo's eighth episode was, but the ninth episode was surprisingly quick... and went absolutely nowhere. *sighs* I wonder if the other seven episodes are going to be as zigzagging.
lmao yes Oreimo has a 2nd season, and it is a very polarizing show. IMO the series oscillates between being funny and incredibly repetitive so I haven't checked out season 2. I really don't like the titular sister after the 2nd episode and it can be quite the blocker when the main lead is like that. I felt the same way towards Bakemonogatari.
She's cute, sure, until she got into that swimsuit. Girl tries too hard. >.> But yeah, my friend didn't care for her mostly because of her psycho-lesbian personality. So it was a small victory for me when he told me he was finally caving in and watching it.
Season 2 of Index? I wouldn't know; I'm only on the seventh light novel and stalled halfway through it, so I dunno if it has filler or not. Railgun... I dunno. The second season of Railgun's supposed to cover the whole Sisters arc, so we'll see how that goes, though I wonder how much it will change the Sisters arc from Index 1 in the end.
As for the movie, that's apparently going to be an original story. Kuroi Hadou had said it would've been perfect if it had covered the thirteenth novel, as that's where Index II left off, but it doesn't seem that's the case here. Alas.
Well, hope Little Busters encourages you to check out future (or past) Key works.
And Kuroko-- Ah, the banshee's wail.
I mean Kuroko's actually pretty cute looking and dare I say it, attractive. But for some reason they casted her voice as a 70 year old granny, and voice is so indicative. Although I thought she was okay in Index proper. Railgun played up the perverted old granny role too much.
Season 2 though I hear has much less filler. Also, there's an entire Index movie coming out, and I guess people can stop bashing JC staff.
