    Find it rather ironic people in that Mary Sue/Gary Stu thread only want to argue about Mahouka with the odd mention of SAO. I find it hard to believe that people aren't discussing Attack on Titan as being the most blatant example of that character type being successful via Levi and Mikasa.

    I would suggest a darker red or a light orange for your border.

    I remember Nanoha being called the Gurren Lagann of magical girl shows back in the day (definitely pre-PMMM). Granted, that was partly intended to counter critics writing it off as a lolicon show, but part of the reason it gained traction is many of us saw it as a very astute comparison.

    I really liked Yuki Yuuna's second episode myself. First was a bit of a miss - and while I hate to do the PMMM comparison, that's mainly because of a lack of dramatic foreshadowing early on. I honestly expected something Slice of Life-ish.

    I do like the visuals a lot - even the way the girls sometimes go spinning off into the air when hit (which kind of reminds me of Super Smash Brothers...).

    I also have to make note of one of the episode 2 transformations - at first watch I felt it was excessively servicy, but then I realized it has some symbolic value that kind of makes up for it.

    I do agree this will probably be much bright than PMMM though I wouldn't be surprised if i goes some fairly dark places along the way.

    Re: Trinity Seven: I largely agree with your general assessment of episode 2. But I also feel that it's position on my list is kind of insecure. Because Ore Twintails ni Narimasu, while pretty silly on the whole, is a much more fun show. And also incredibly self aware.

    I'm surprised how many strong late season launches and second episode better than first cases I've seen this season... it's gone from being a season I was pretty meh on to one I'm pretty pumped for.

    I wish we had such a holiday here. teehee

    Selector spread wixoss, Chaika and Nanatsu no taizai are my top for the season. Kokkuri-san and parasyte are also nice.

    And you, what are your picks?

    I'm thinking you may find Yuki Yuna wa Yusha de Aru relevant to your interests.

    It's funny, because I was considering both of the shows you recommended, as I'm still looking for a lighthearted show to add to my roster for the season. Thanks for that, I shall be checking them out! The season is looking a bit sparse for me so far. In addition to the previous, I've picked up World Trigger, Shingeki no Bahamut and Akatsuki no Yona for now, out of a dire lack of things to watch.

    Now.
    Magic Kaito Only two episodes so far and my memory of the manga is fuzzy, so this is tentative, but let me make a bold statement: this is roughly what I expected out of SMC in terms of rebooting an established series. There is sufficient modernisation and tightening of the dated source material's weaknesses while retaining the charme of the original. It can be silly and whether that's a weakness or part of the appeal depends on the viewer. If you enjoy a bit of lighthearted school drama with a splash of mystery, romanticised crime and glamour, you might enjoy this. It definitely has an oldschool charme to it and I've enjoyed it so far.

    Terraformars As someone who loves dystopian sci-fi, I, so far, really like this one. It's no Sidonia though: this world truly and utterly sucks. You don't want to live here. There's a fairly large and likeable cast with some interesting dynamics starting to show in what can only be described a pretty cold, harsh setting. The biggest downside is the excessive, mood-killing censorship here, rather than the gore, if you're squeamish, which isn't visible thanks to the former and the primary antagonist may not work for everyone. I suspect that similar to Sidonia, you will be inclined to draw some comparisons with others old sci-fi shows here.

    I'd recommend giving both a try, as these are the type of shows that either work for you or they don't. They're not everyone's cup of tea, but they have their own rather distinct flavour- love it or hate it

    Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso: Okay, you've already discovered this one for yourself. For me, this actually turned out to be a surprise: I expected it to be good, but based on past experience with Noitamina anime I didn't expect to like this nearly as much as I did, be it in terms of the characters and setup, the artwork, or even the humour (I know you're not fond of the slapstick, but I personally enjoyed the way the misunderstanding in the park got way out of hand).

    Ore Twintail ni Narimasu: The other recent surprise hit for me. Guy with a massive twintails fetish is given the power to transform into Tail Red, - essentially a twintailed sentai heroine - in order to battle aliens who are trying to steal the twintails attribute from earthling girl. I don't expect everyone to appreciate the show's straight up "ham and cheese" approach, but I enjoyed it.

    Grisaia no Kajitsu episode 2: I felt this show had dark horse potential from the opener - despite it not doing much aside from establishing some weird, over the top moe quirks for the girls, hinting the characters have dark and sinister histories and showing some fanservice. Well, it's only the second episode and I'm already seeing improvement. The girls are feeling less like collections of tropes and more like actual characters, and the plot intrigues me much more than either Ushinawareta or Daitoshokan's plots do. (Caveat: I have trouble taking Makina seriously as a romantic interest for the same reason I have trouble taking Ayu seriously as one - personality is wayyyyyyy too childish. At least so far.)

    Not sure if you have the internet connection (or PC hardware, albeit it is a five year old game at this point), but just in case you need even more stuff to suck up your free time, EA is offering Dragon Age: Origins as a freebie via their Origin download service until the 14th. Thought I'd mention it as it's my favourite single player game of recent years.
