    I dunno why but lately I've been craving for Saki again. I hope we get a new season.

    Oh, I know that feeling. I myself tend to avoid discussions when there is a huge audience whether it's pre-established or even formed during the broadcast, for example Aldnoah.Zero. There is always a negative mob that has to criticize whatever they see. That doesn't sit well with me as I'm more of a "go with the flow" enthusiast so I find it difficult to empathize despite being able to understand what they talk about. In Aldnoah's case I simply try to avoid obvious "the writing is bad because xxx" posts. lol

    As for Kancolle, I happen to be a player so I enjoy seeing anime viewers' takes on it and answering their questions. Sadly the discussion is admittedly not too anime-only friendly because it's hard not to bring up game related content for game players, and it doesn't help that pointing out historical facts alludes to pseudo spoilers.

    Ah, I figured. Real life is such a jerk sometimes. How does that saying go again? Money in the bank pimpin' ain't easy.

    I'm folllowing the 3 of them as well, hooray!

    Saekano - The first episode is very pleasant eyecandy, but it also has very witty dialogue that's quite engaging. The best thing of course is that their anime conversations are so relatable it makes me wish they were my real life friends. The main girls are likable but I still need to see more of Utaha (the one like Hitagi) and the sporty cousin before I can make a clear picture of them. For now I'm an Eri fan because the childhood friend factor makes me sympathize with her. lol The protagonist though, he needs someone to deliver divine punishment to him for various reasons, heh. Later episodes apparently get more serious concerning drama since it's written by the person who also did White Album 2 so I look forward to that!

    Deremas - I'm ashamed to say this but I never watched the original IM@S anime. That said, I do like idol anime very much which is why I have no problems enjoying the anime for what it is. I agree the producer is very amusing to watch. Whenever he explains why he chose a girl as an idol, it cracks me up. The series is doing a commendable job at developing our main girls and exposing them to the world of idols as well. Most intruiging to me are the subtle things that say much more when you look past the face value, i.e. when Producer puts his hand on his neck to show that he is very troubled, or how you can tell that becoming an idol is Uzuki's absolute happiness when you see her practice so much and bombards the Producer with anticipation.

    Yuri Kuma - Couldn't have said it better myself. I couldn't make sense out of the first episode at all, and I'm not a big yuri fan although I do ship girls together when the pairing looks legit to me (Fate+Nanoha, Saki+Nodoka etc.). If I were to drop an anime, it was this. However I'm glad I continued watching because things become much clearer in the following two episodes, especially episode 3. This is the episode that'll make you go "Ahh, it all makes sense now" and it's good at bringing us plot twists here and there as well. The one thing that still tugs on my heart is the alluded cannibalism though, I'm not used to seeing cute girls get literally eaten even if they are unimportant characters. Then again they haven't yet shown how exactly girls are being eaten by bears so... I stay tuned.

    I definitely have a recommendation for you, and that is Rolling Girls, an original anime by Gainax. It's very colourful, has crazy action/battle scenes (similar to Kill la Kill if you like this kind of exaggerated style) and the overall atmosphere is just very vivid which IMO results in an amazingly fun ride(pun intended). The premiere of this is probably the second most bizarre thing after Yuri Kuma but it already starts to set a certain direction within the second episode showing how the main cast (really likable btw., plus cute!) goes off on a journey for a purpose we will yet have to find out. I'm certain that this anime will provide great entertainment no matter what.

    Ah, you saw my Choice Award votes. Love Live is love, Love Live is life! Ok, that sounds awkward. The thing about LL is that I started hyping the franchise the moment I saw their animated PVs years before the first season even aired so I consider myself a veteran LL fan if that even makes sense. I also must say that the actual series topped my expectations by far, followed by a second season that's just as fabulous and we now even get a movie. That's just wow. lol Honoka is indeed my true favourite character because I'm a sucker for girls that have a simplistic and cheerful attitude. Umi comes close to her but that's where my bias comes in as I'm a huge fan of her VA.

    As for PMMM, I believe there is not much to say! It is simply an anime that holds a special place in our heart. Hell, I still remember the heated discussions and the exchange of arguments between you and Kaijo (I think that was his name).

    I am sure I said this before but it's always good to see you contribute to threads. I find myself agreeing with your opinions and views more often than not, specifically the more positive ones. That said, may I know which animes you are following atm? I've only seen you post in the Kancolle thread recently, I think.

    This a idea for a one shot jumped into my head I thought maybe I should share

    I'm thinking some one should write one shot about Sabre meets King Arthur (Male) And I'm not talking about one from Fate/Prototype OVA a King Arthur From different series

    I think part of the reason it works for me is the criticism is gentle/humourous enough that the author is kind of admitting that he actually kind of likes these kinds of shows too. It's the writers who try and act like their work is superior just because it's self aware I can't stand.

    Plus, I feel like the episode gently criticizes its audience as well - I can't help but read the way the show pokes fun at the protagonist for ignoring the girls and scenery for the most part as a way of saying "it's okay to take a break from being an otaku sometimes".

    I remember Bakemonogatari more for its drama than its metahumour. Nisemonogatari is the opposite, I can see comparing Saenai Heroine with Nise even if it doesn't necessarily have all the visual gags Nise did.

    As for the character comparisons:
    -Utaha: Were it not for how utterly scathing her remarks can be, I would have said she's Kuroneko crossed with Hyouka's Irisu, but I guess the remarks do make me think Hitagi a bit. She's not as dramatic a character was in the early parts of Bakemonogatari though. The scenes where Hitagi tries to intimidate Araragi into silence in Bakemonogatari episode 1 are iconic for me.
    -Michuru: Technically Kanbaru has a dark side under the genki, sporty girl exterior but I do see this comparison.
    -Megumi: I'm guessing you're comparing her to Nadeko? She's need to be younger and more vulnerable for me to really see it.

    By first episode, you mean episode 00 right? I've seen both episode 00 and episode 1. And I actually flipped through 00 again before writing this post.

    Here's the things I noticed about episode 1:
    1) Frequent lampshading of the show's own tropes
    2) The main character essentially ignoring three talented beauties and focusing his attention on his game and a more mundane girl (the "boring girlfriend" in the title.
    3) Small hints that the "mundane" girl has changed in the six months since meeting the MC.

    I strongly suspect that one or both of 2 and 3 are important to the show's overall theme. I also think that the title ("How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend") is very intended to be tongue in cheek. I'm also somewhat optimistic the show is going to actually say something interesting using these themes by the end, especially as the writer previously penned White Album 2.

    But the one thing that gives me some pause is how "meta" the jokes are. I didn't mind it a lot in episode 00, because having a bunch of gorgeous girls discuss anime at a hot spring strikes me as so over the top that I can't take it seriously. On the other hand, episode 01 is more serious in tone, and therefore the "the top two beauties in my school are secretly a talented write and a talented illustrator" thing bugged me a lot more there.

    On the whole I'd say I'm going a bit wait and see on the show.

    This season I'm watching (not counting the carryovers of Log Horizon II and Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso):

    Assassination Classroom: Very interesting premise, and Koro-sensei's a charismatic character that could carry a series by himself
    Dog Days 3: The highlight of the season for me, I'm a huge fan of the series. At least in my top 20 favorite anime, maybe top 10.
    Kamisama Hajimemashita II: Fun and charming show. I also think it's pretty cool that my fourth nephew was born while the original was airing (December 15th 2012), and that the fifth was born during the Winter season where the sequel is airing (well, December 30th, but I associate him with Winter 2015 since Fall 2014 was basically finished). Cousins linked by Kamisama Hajimemashita
    Seiken Tsukai no World Break: Recommended to me by EroKing-sensei. It's a nice series, I like the idea of all the characters having past lives.
    Shinmai Maou no Testament: It's okay, fairly standard anime so far but I'm enjoying it well enough.
    The Idolmaster - Cinderella Girls: Seems I'm a fan of idol series, since I've watched most of the ones that have cropped up over the last few years; Love Live, the original Idolmaster series, Natsuiro Kiseki. The idolm@ster series from 2011 was a wonderful show, so I couldn't pass this one up. I'm hoping it's two cour like the original.
    Tokyo Ghoul Root A (too lazy to copy and paste the symbol ): A great show for anyone who enjoys morbid material, and I really like how much the main character has changed from the original.
    Yuri Kuma Arashi: I'm checking this out mainly because of Ikuhara; I've never watched Utena, but I very much enjoyed Penguindrum.
