    You know, I feel kind of inconsistent for saying it for docking marks from Arpeggio and Tokyo Ravens (the latter of which I actually like a lot) for what I thought to be the ridiculousness of their final scenes, but Galilei Donna's first episode was a riot.

    And on a completely different topic: I final got around to seeing Star Trek VI recently... and for all the Into Darkness/Star Trek II comparisons, I kind of feel like Into Darkness is like a contemporary update of Star Trek VI. Not sure if you've seen both, but if you have I'd be interested in your opinion on it.

    Well that is nice, though to be honest the actual numerical ratio is less important to me than the quality of the characters themselves. There I'd call Valvrave pretty hit and miss, but at least it's equally hit and miss for both genders.

    The other side of that is, yes, it's a school-based series where the student body (and those who matter to the plot) seem to be what most are in real life, close to an even split. That's a positive for sure. You could look at Kyousogiga and get a pretty similar ratio - it's about 50-50 among the main cast.

    I really like the characterization in Tokyo Ravens episode 1. I had to dock a couple marks for the final action scene though - the combination of mechanization and spirit powers was actually pretty cool but the execution of it in that scene just seemed excessive and needlessly elaborate/complicated to the point where it actually broke suspension of disbelief a bit. It actually bothered me more than the high gloss late-90s looking CG.

    That said, I still have to say I'm very positive on the show. This wasn't like Arpeggio's last scene, which knocked away a lot of my interest - I liked Arpeggio better when I assumed that Iona taking human form was something unique.

    Two minor notes:
    1) Is it just me, or is Natsume's dress actually pretty revealing under strong sunlight?
    2) KanaHana playing a miko? Between that and Gingitsune, this season seems to be catering to that particular taste of mine a fair bit.

    That would be a great passing of the torch moment indeed - and it would be a vindication of sorts for all of us Sayaka fans after all the hate, abuse and disrespect that has gathered against her over the years.

    My plans to watch Love Live! fell through, unfortunately. Just as I was preparing to find and obtain the releases, the faction started its near-fatal losing streak in the tournament, and my interest waned. I do have all of Jintai already though, so only free time (or the lack of) would be a factor for my quest to discover Watashi's appeal to voters.

    So I barely participated in ISML this year, but ended up voting in the last match without realizing it (I didn't look to see what match it was, actually). And yet somehow, it's the first year my girl won. (To be fair, I think a lot of fans were sympathetic to her after S2.)

    The final round made me think of this image:

    On a completely unrelated note, I think this is rather well done (Danbooru link, usual caveats about possible NSFW content (but not the pic itself)):

    Had my season kick off screening today, though we didn't have time for a few shows (Strike the Blood and White Album 2 come to mind).

    Outbreak Company was surprisingly popular given that my group isn't the most easily pleased. I think the 90s throwback world design helped win some people over - one friend thought it had shades of Irresponsible Captain Tylor to it. I notice Enzo noted in his blog that the show has a bit of a humanistic side, and I'm kind of feeling like that's the other special ingredient - in particular, I'd cite the scene where he starts teaching Miusel to read as being one of the bits that keeps it from feeling like an also-run reference comedy.

    Though for stuff that's clearly intended to be heartwarming, there's Gingatsune. Genki miko playing off a grumpy fox spirit. Non-romantically, even.

    At one point, a friend and I decided it would be fun to force the group to watch a double header of fujoshi shows - specifically Diabolik Lovers and Megane-bu. Diabolik Lovers appears to be based on an otome game targetted at Twilight fangirls - specifically one aimed at the kind of girl who fantasizes about being stalked and harassed by brooding sparkly vampires. I found it rather amusing, but then again that kind of thing doesn't phase me much.

    Re: Mio in Walkure Romanze: whose brilliant idea was it to dress a shallow klutz in an obvious rip off of the garb of one of anime's most iconic strong female leads? Even for a veteran of guilty pleasure anime, I have to call that one out for being terrible, terrible taste.

    One the other hand, Mirai's klutziness didn't bother me nearly as much on a second watch of Kanata no Kyoukai episode 1. Since the show actually has a decent number of things I like in it, I see this as a good sign moving forward.
