    Before the Rumble match (Cena/Kane on now), I predict that Wade Barrett will win.

    Well, I guess Squid Girl is quite popular in your group. Did you like it yourself?

    I've already seen Redline, so I can certainly appreciate why that did so well.

    And I guess Madoka Magica just rubbed you guys the wrong way.

    Right,I figured it was something like that and it reassures me because after watching episode 1 I was quite confused and wondered if something was wrong with me but looks like I wasn't alone.

    I actually started writing out an even more detailed reply, then decided I didn’t want to get into that detailed a discussion a week where I have major assignments due.

    Anyway, there’s less surprises in that list then you might think, because I was heavily involved with my university’s anime club from 2006-2009. So I’ve been part of a group where “old style” Noitamina (Nodame Cantabile and Honey and Clover in my group’s case), Akagi/Kaiji, Mushishi and Monster were hugely popular. There are differences of course too. My group liked One Outs. I can’t imagine Madoka bombing that hard here , given that stuff like Rozen Maiden and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei got positive if not enthusiastic responses (actually Bakemonogatari was supposed to get a screening back when I was still part of the group until a couple of the execs saw the Nadeko Snake arc and chickened out). (Similarly, there’s that discussion we had previously about the popularity of Evangelion in our local anime club scenes.) Minami-Ke would be a middle of the road show among our group and so would Ika-Musume.

    As for the lack of moe shows compared to Animesuki, as a moe fan it wasn’t like I was going to wait to see them at a club screening to see them anyway. Nor did I particularly want to watch most of them with people less enthusiastic than I. Anime club screenings were a way of injecting some variety into my anime watching schedule. I always got the impression that those with similar tastes held similar thoughts.

    There’s only a few shows I ever actually tried to pump – with pretty poor results. My inability to get Kurenai screened is the one that still bugs me most, primarily because I always felt that one of the guys calling the shots at the time was both dismissive of my tastes and a bit of a loli-phobe and hence I have trouble believing the show ever had a fair chance. The stuff that did make it in (ie. Rozen Maiden, Haruhi Suzumiya, Moon Phase, Minami-Ke) were personal picks of our previous president, who was absolutely brilliant at managing the various “factions” in the club.

    Just out of curiosity,if you were involved in the decision,why that episode in particular?

    Sorry to butt in however I don't know what I liked more about that ranking,Redline #1 or Dirty Pair at #48

    For dirty pair,is that the rating of the TV show or does that include the movie and OVAs?

    The Steins;Gate-Romance debate has probably gotten a bit out of hand, yeah. Sorry for my part in that.

    Truth be told, the more I think about it the more I dislike the idea of one series dominating a lot of genre categories because I'd like to give more room for lesser-known series' to shine. That was an idea I tried to convey in my hypothetical Fate/Zero vs. Another situation when it comes to Mystery/Horror 2012.

    I'm probably caring more about this than I ought to, but what can I say, it can make for interesting discussion!

    Looks like Jericho is still a heel; parodying the general catering to the fans that most returning stars do.

    It doesn't look like it.

    I can't see anything good coming out of Aquarion.

    Right now, Another is my favorite new Winter 2012 anime, but Chihayafuru is my favorite currently airing show.

    Another is a rare case of anime doing Horror/Mystery almost to perfection, imo. Like Reckoner, I think you'd find it just Ok, but it might be worth your time.

    I'm also really liking Rinne no Lagrange and Moretsu Pirates. Both of these shows have a bit of a space sci-fi throwback to them which you may well appreciate. I think they have pretty well-rounded female leads so far, after watching two episodes of each. It's possible that there might be something in them that'll rub you the wrong way, but I think they're worth a try. If you do watch Lagrange, prepare yourself for some silly fanservice in the first episode, but I didn't notice much in the 2nd. With Pirates, prepare yourself for a slow-burning plot, even I found that a bit too slow.

    I'm also liking Aquarion EVOL, but I have my doubts you would. It is pretty cheesy/silly, lol.

    With Nisemonogatari, I liked the first episode, and was pretty displeased with the second. If you watch it, prepare for really random conversations and plot movement (if you can even call it a plot so far, lol).

    There's some other shows this season I've found Ok, but they haven't really grabbed me to the point yet where I can say much about them either way.
