    Nice work on getting Triple_R to start Mysterious Girlfriend X.

    Between you and Last Sinner, I decided to finally start watching Mysterious Girlfriend X. And I have to say that I really liked its first episode! I'll probably post on the series thread for it after I've watched the 2nd episode.

    I like the romantic pairing here, and I like how it's really their story. No love triangles, no harem shenanigans, just a normal (but creative/imaginative) guy and a cute (but in a different way, and quirky) girl.

    I enjoyed Melodies (the second season) a lot and would recommend it. However, it's a darker, more flawed, and ultimately less satisfying anime than Memories was. Part of this is probably the twelve episode limit, apparently they cut or compressed a fair bit from Melodies (although Memories also compressed Kei's arc).

    Memories is one of my favourite anime and Renji/Chihiro is one of my favourite pairings. Plus, my girlfriend and I met because she cosplayed an EF character. Needless to say, I grabbed it (and Melodies too) recently when it came out on R1 Bluray.

    Speaking of R1s... this may be DVD only just like the Japanese version, but I really want to get this when it comes out anyway:

    Hmmm... I'm inclined to agree with Malkuth that Otome feels like Oonuma's work and Sankarea doesn't quite feel like Shinbou's... on the other hand, I can't help but notice that Shaft seems to be taking a lot less projects these days and concentrating on it's big three (Madoka/Monogatari/Hidamari Sketch) so it's not like he wouldn't have the time... not sure what to say.

    Also, since Oonuma came up, I'm curious, did you watch EF back when it aired? The show has been a favourite of mine for years, and not just because my girlfriend cosplays characters from it.

    I doubt that Shinbou has anything to do with Otome, because the style is more like Ounuma's and they have not worked together since the later left for SilverLink.

    For Sankarea, aesthetics aside, it doesn't feel like a Shinbou/Ounuma work.

    As for fake names, Iit's more common with hentai VAs, since they are regarded as live porn, but it's not unheard of staff to use pseudonyms when the ecchi factor is high... for example I still don't know who is Kobun that directed Hyakka Ryouran.

    By the way, I don't think you'll like KoreZon, as for Nyaruko-san, dunno, had some interesting direction, but yeah otherwise it's probably not you cup of tea. I asked out of curiosity, since they are my top picks for spring, followed by Sankarea, Otome, and psycho-girlfriend.

    Hehe, Tasogare is directed by his apprentice, and Sankarea has staff that used to work with SHAFT, anyway they both look good, storytelling is an issue though with both... Sankarea moves at a snail's pace compared to the manga, while Otome has that nasty habit of replaying scenes with and without Yuuko.

    By the way have you checked Nyaruko-san and KoreZon?

    Just finished watching it. That OP is good but I still like the ED more by a fair margin as well as a couple of in-episode pieces. Scissors, nosebleeds, continual deconstruction of the romance genre, 90s style art, gorgeous backgrounds. So much to like about Mysterious Girfriend X. Along with Space Bros and Fujiko Mine, I'm having more fun from currently airing shows than I've had in a long time.

    @your Sig: my moe zombie's boobs can't be this good?

    No, old school designs can be cute. I guess I just think of retro-moe as another kind of moe though, because the hair over eyes thing aside, she didn't register as that different to me from a visual standpoint. Not actually sure who your profile pic is, BTW.

    I do think "weird girl" is actually a moe point - I mean, isn't half of what makes Haruhi who she is that she's disinterested in anyone except aliens, espers, and time travellers? Urabe has that same kind of appeal, only a little more ero since her weird points including talking about addictions to drool and how the voices in her head told her who the first person she's going to have sex with is.

    I didn't actually notice this was a "defined couple" romance until you point it out, but I usually consider that a good sign - I tend to find those have significantly better romantic development than harem shows do.

    (On a mostly unrelated note... is it just me, or is Hanasaku Iroha more or less the only "4-5 girl band" show you can think of that's dared to give is heroines romantic interests?)
