    I can only think of two other Hisaya penned series, so no! I'm not familiar with the stuff he's done that's never been adapted, though.

    Just watched the first episode of the twintail anime and... remind me not to ever take a suggestion from your "watching for lulz" list again . Wasn't as bad as Cross Ange but still wtf was that .

    I did chuckle at that scene xD

    The synopsis for Ore Twintails turned me off from trying it .

    So I watched the Tamako market movie. It was actually pretty decent.

    Did a Pellissier and Flower style rating system on my about page for the current season if you want to see what I'm interested in. As usual, my drop list is huge .

    Unfortunately, I'm well over the Anohana, Key, Nagi no Asu Kara-type like moebaww dramas. Also doesn't help that Shigatsu is airing in the same season which I'm absolutely loving and is just superior in every way.

    EDIT: Just watched it and whilst it was better than the other two episode, it didn't do much for me. I think I just got really hard to please .

    That definitely is a lovely and very well-drawn pic. Thanks for sharing!

    Certainly all valid points.

    I just commented on the Yuki Yuna series thread, by the way. Ironic - I'm one of the few there that didn't bring up Madoka Magica on the thread itself.

    Yes, it is very relevant to my interests. Thanks for promoting it to me. You and one other long-time AS friend did so (the other person via PMs). I'm thankful for both of you, since it's rare I'm promoted to immediately drop everything and get a new anime ASAP. But I did so in this case because I received two unambiguous promotions from people who know my anime tastes well.

    I only had a chance to watch Yuki Yuna wa Yusha de Aru Episode 1 this morning, but after work today I'll try to squeeze in Episode 2. After that, I'll comment on the series thread itself.

    But I'll say this, so far, looking at the anime industry bigger picture:

    It's going to happen. I was doubtful after VRO and Gen'ei, but not now. One day they are going to make the "Gurren Lagann" to Madoka Magica's "NGE". I don't think this new show is it (but it's close, and might yet pull it off), but Yuki Yuna wa Yusha de Aru Episode 1 is the closest I've seen yet to "Madoka Magica Episode 1, through a mirror, brightly". The day is coming when somebody pulls it off, and it will be glorious.

    Yuki Yuna wa Yusha de Aru gets a lot of key things right that VRO and Gen'ei were a fair bit off on. At least when it comes to being an effective response to Madoka Magica. There's 2 or 3 areas where I think the show is slightly missing the mark in that respect, but they're relatively minor compared to what it's getting completely right.

    Two key things I'll mention briefly - Aesthetics and Truly wondrous/magical-seeming "other/combat world". These are the best magical girl outfits I've seen since Madoka Magica. And this is the most impressively SHAFT-y other-worldly "witch's barrier" I've seen since Madoka Magica.

    However, I'm going to try to keep explicit Madoka Magica comparisons off the series thread itself, because Yuki Yuna wa Yusha de Aru is a case where I'd agree with Solace - This show definitely should be kept out of PMMM's shadow. So on the series thread itself, I'll speak to what it's getting right, on its own merits, with minimal comparisons to other shows.

    But in the "anime industry bigger picture" sense, this is wondrously close to the perfect answer to Madoka Magica (even if it is unintentional on the creators' parts). I thought I should share that observation with you.
