    I'm adding Kindaichi R to titles I'm keeping this season, so that makes 6. I'd marked about 10 as interested in before seeing them, so having six to keep has been a pleasant surprise. Guess we'll see how this keeps up since right about now, the 2nd eps of a lot of shows will be airing since a lot of shows started on the 6th.

    That critic thread is giving me a headache...

    It's actually the same case in Australia. The majority opinion is written by one judge and the other agreeable judges pretty much say "I agree with the opinion with Justice except for the following points". Dissenting judges though write their full opinions.

    I got some time over the weekend so I'll check out some of the titles you mentioned. Particularly the World is Still Beautiful since the premise intrigues me and it's been a while since I've seen a good fantasy/adventure anime. I also really like artstyle of One Week Friends as it reminds me of Wandering Son/Bunny Drop. Plus it seems like Brains Base is back on track (hurrah for non-otome game adaptation ). Otherwise, I'll check out other titles as they come based on recommendations made by yourself and others.

    In regards to Mahouka, not touching that with a 10ft pole unless it's agreed upon "credible sources" that's it's actually good ala Raligun S2. Megapopular light novel adaptation from Dengeki. Yeah, nah. I rather watch Kyoani moeshit than that.

    Talking about Kyoani, they are really trolling the shippers hard with the Tamako Market movie promo posters .

    Admittedly, I'm also doing exams at present. They've kind of had the reverse effect on me. Break time from revision has been precious for me. Pulled of my first 12 win run in Arena mode in Hearthstone today, so the focus/tension is doing me good it seems.

    Mushishi S2 and One Week Friends are the kind of chill mode I like. The World Is Still Beautiful has a cool, feisty female lead in a fun, shoujo setting and has good art, so ticks most boxes for me. Brynhildr did enough for me to remain interested. Wrestler Matsutaro is from the old school and intentionally having a real prick of a protagonist but in a very funny way. I find it absurd most people don't want to allow such a thing, yet when a complete cast is full of douchebags/detestable people like, say...White Album, it's perfectly fine according to those same people.

    Either way, season is fun. My last exam is tomorrow. Accounting 2 was a real trial today and I was one of the few to avoid being scarred by Legal Decisions. Payroll is the last stanza for this term. Then I can chill. Good luck with your exams.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I've tapered completely off my usual anime knowledge expertise since I'm kind of naturally steering off the anime hobby as I age and find other interests so I don't look at charts no where near as much as I use to.

    I also like your attitude of "This is a moe show that caters to me and I like it, so fuck you haters" for certain shows .

    So aside from Mushishi Season 2, I have no idea what I'm supposed to watch this season. Suggestions are welcome... including your token moe show(s) of the season .

    Nice to know someone else likes The World Is Still Beautiful. Nike is just an awesome female lead.

    Brynhildr and One Week Friends do get stronger over time from what I read. Brynhildr was never going to match the opening Elfen Lied had - but since they have the same author, the bloodbaths will come in due time. As for One Week Friends, it's simple but to the heart. Over time, the impact of what those two go through with the futility of losing it all over and over - it amounts to something memorable.

    And I won't deny how utterly delighted I am that Mushishi S2 has finally happened. 9 years apart yet that crew still knows exactly how to do it.

    This season could be the one for me that I've been waiting years for. After discussing things with a friend, I realised the last time I liked 5 titles in a season was April 2010. 4 years....If the five I'm following stay good and either Kindaichi or Knights of Sidonia are also keepers, this will be quite a season for me.

    For me, the major fizzle of the season at this rate is Irregular at Magic High School. They seem hellbent on making what was a fun manga with some good action into something really bland. They removed an entire battle from the start of the manga where the sister utterly owned face. And that gives me grave concerns about this adaptation. They seem hellbent on establishing the sister as inferior all the way when she isn't. And an episode of info-dumping with that weak not-battle at the end was pretty meh. Really don't know what Madhouse were doing. I know the innuendo/relationships were meant to be a core part of this, but it's also a shounen/action title in part. This adaptation seems intent on ignoring those aspects, which is pretty deplorable in my opinion.

    I still have a fair bit of catching up to do with the new Spring 2014 shows.

    What I've seen so far is Akuma no Riddle, Love Live! Season 2, Captain Earth, WIXOSS, and Brynhildr in the Darkness. Of these five, Brynhildr in the Darkness is the only one you mentioned to me, so we'll start with that.

    I found it unintentionally hilarious. I mean, they present Ryota as the super-practical super-serious guy, but there's something I just find silly about him. I mean, he is a massive risk-taker in ways that are pretty amazing. I read people compare this anime to Elfen Lied of all things, so I have my doubts that this comedy I'm seeing is intentional (so I'm tentatively calling it unintentional). Kuroneko (haha!) is no less silly than Ryuto is, but it's pretty clear she's supposed to be that way. She is amusing.

    I have to admit that I'm a bit skeptical of shows like this. Nerdy male lead and strange mysterious "girlfriend" - That's been so done to death in anime it makes incest look like a novelty. They're going to have to do something pretty different with this show to make this heavily used concept work for me. And I suppose the Elfen Lied comparisons could be promising that way.

    Akuma no Riddle I enjoy a lot on a shits and giggles level. Having two characters that look almost exactly like Kyouko and Sayaka definitely appeals to me as a Madoka Magica fan (the fact that "Kyouko" eats pocky and "Sayaka" wields blades makes it that much sweeter). Aside from that, the show has the same "crazy cool" sensibility as Dangaronpa, Mirai Nikki, and Umineko - And while that can seem a bit lowbrow at times, I also find it highly amusing. Throw yuri on top of all of this, and this show is the one of the season that will probably get me smirking the most. Worst-case scenario is probably "Guilty Pleasure" but time will tell if it rises above that for me.

    While Akuma no Riddle is the show with some superficial similarities to Madoka, it's WIXOSS that captures the spirit of Madoka the best, imo (at least after an episode). So of these shows, the one I most recommend you check out is WIXOSS. It does dark and foreboding really well, imo. I'm not a big fan of the "children's card games" shows myself, but this one may be an exception for me. And hey, it's wrote by Okada!

    Captain Earth - To me, it's like an unusual blend of Space Bros. with Star Driver so far.

    And you already know what I think of Love Live! The 2nd season looks just as good as the first so far.

    After I've watched some more anime shows, I'll give you my take on them as well, if you want.

    I'm curious to see if Tamako Market love story movie will be a better romance series than Nagi no Asu Kara. My gut reactions thinks yes, which is damn scary.

    But, I still stand by my opinion that Tamako is one of Kyoani's best female characters, and that I do quite liker her. No idea how she would rank in my general preferences though.
