    Bahaha. I just read your tags on MAL and some of the tags are hilarious. Particularly liked the "Nobody cares about Ryou" one

    Yea, she's quite adorable even when she became "cool" for sure, easily fitting in my top 10 characters. Though still I am quite torn on the lower places my 10 favorite on MAL being between Nanoha, Hitagi, Mai, and Madoka[can't fit all of them and the other 7 are there for sure <_<].

    lol I am not sure, I mean with it only tied one side it sure looks different; also didn't Madoka give her two ribbons so how did Homura wear two to make it look like one?

    Thanks XD, I knew I wanted one of Homura with the ribbons after I saw the episodes .

    Was a blast to follow Madoka, but my head hurts now . Ended up giving it 9/10 on my MAL securing my 10th spot in my top 10.

    Yea I am avoiding the Madoka subforum today in general until I see it subbed, but since it's minor and that is indeed relevant to my interests lol, but your response is just great and so true XD, which is probably why I am laughing as I type this.

    So then episode 3 comes along and pretty much makes me annoyed I even bothered praising them. And that is exactly why I have mixed feelings about them. Great potential, but sometimes... just so stupid. Or is this proof you need this crap to sell?
    Although I am still very much annoyed at P.A. Works/Mari Okada for pulling such a stunt, I can't say I blame them completely. Considering all of P.A. Works' series have sold like shit except Angel Beats (which pretty much had a silly atmosphere from the very get go), I think it's fairly safe to say that given the current general demography of anime viewers and their general love for moe, fanservice and slapstick comedy, they did the right thing from a commercial perspective. Too bad it annoys people like me, Reckoner, Guardian Zero and yourself who actually want a non-silly, "normal" drama. And Blu-ray/DVD preorders were rather terrible given the amount of production effort put into this until episode 3 aired (jumped from pretty much non-existent to up there with the top dogs of the season Tiger and Bunny, Anohana and Steins;Gate) which further supports my argument that moe, fanservice and slapstick comedy sells in the slice of life genre. What's even sadder is that Hanasaku Iroha is currently the most discussed anime of the season in 2ch before this incident even happened. Kinda sad, but what can you do, unless the attitude of the anime demography changes. Still surprised about Anohana being the top dog in Blu-ray/DVD orders but TJR wrote a nice analysis here.

    I'm sure they aren't going to keep doing this, though there may be more of these filler in the future.
    I'm fairly P.A. Works won't pull another one... at least for a while (Maybe 1 or 2 more down the track given it's 2 cour) or until Blu-ray/DVD preorders start to drop for latter volumes due to a lack of "otaku" material.

    Also, was I the only one to notice the BGM was really lacking in this episode? If you're gonna go for silly crap, you need silly music for the atmosphere. It wasn't even good for that kind of thing.
    Now that I think about it, you're completely right. Might as well have had the Benny Hill theme song playing with that ridiculous car chase.

    But still, I will say I don't have much negativity on me; I reorganized my watching list here and this season remains a strong one despite the roadbumps.
    Agreed. Regardless of one episode of mishap or one series, the season is still I consider the best one since Spring 2007. I'm just more annoyed than the usual viewer because I had really high hopes for Hanasaku Iroha since I loved True Tears a lot, and the first 2 episodes gave me a similar vibe. Regardless, I still have AnoHana (which I liked more anyway even when Hanasaku Iroha aired only its 2 eps). Hopefully, AnoHana won't pull off something stupid either because in that case, I think I might actually punch my monitor.

    I watched it earlier today, it definitely is the most promising series of the season atm, and my favorite was probably him randomly deciding to call Kurise "Christina" for no reason. Actually pretty much the whole time Kurise was there things were fun xD.

    God damn, there's so much bad fanservice out there. Touch me and I'll beat the crap out of you!
    You are about to move into areas of the anime industry with wonders you cannot possibly imagine. And terrors to freeze your soul.
