    Yeah well at least your not sitting through The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya movie right now. For a movie that everybody is claiming is so epic I can't imagine anything more dull and drawn out at this point. Seriously the movie is 2 hours and 40 minutes and I'm about an hour and 30 minutes in and barely anything has happened in the last hour or so. There's just no excuse for this movie being this long if they aren't going to fill it with more than a few events that are actually interesting to watch.

    The animation which is gorgeous and definitely taking advantage of the movie format is about the only thing remarkable about it thus far, but I still have about an hour and 10 minutes to go and I'm anticipating Kyoani did what they always do and pack all the interesting parts at the beginning and the end of their feature so that there'll be a hook at the beginning and then when people are finished with it the good parts will be the only thing fresh in their mind. It's manipulative as hell if you ask me, but then again this is Kyoani we are talking about here lol....

    Hmm yeah, I was rather impressed by Angel Beat's second episode as well. The OP and ED certainly saved it for me. The concert near the end reminded me of episode 11 of Haruhi.

    Haven't seen that show yet.

    Fate will lose to Mikoto tonight...

    Check out Rainbow - Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin. Out of the anime I've seen so far this is at least one tier above everything. Predicting and hoping it will be one of the best grim dark series I will see in a long time.

    2x 3k word assignments due over the Easter Break = hell.

    I did watch a few animes in between as breaks though.

    Angel Beats - Same but different style of "Key". Same in that, it follows the standard "Key" formula - comedic at the start with dramatic elements than gradually turns dramatic with some comedy. Different in that, it is a supernatural/action anime and not a romance/drama. Watched 2 eps, and I'm undecided what to think of it. But will watch all of it just because its "Key". The OP is just gorgeous though <3

    Senko no Night Raid - Grim dark/action set in Shanghai. Sounds like an interesting storyline. First episode was interesting enough.

    Arakawa Under the Bridge - Another troll by Shinbo lol. Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei on steroids. I guess Bakemonogatari was just a one-hit wonder for him because the other SHAFT show I like (ef tale of memories) was not directed by him.

    Heroman - Amercian superhero show but Japanified. Don't really like western cartoons (Marvel etc) so don't really care about it.

    Working - For a moeblob show, I'm actually finding it not bad. The main guy though looks exactly like the main guy from Hanamaru Youchien though.


    Other shows I plan to watch:

    Hakuouki
    Saraiya Goyou
    Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei
    Rainbow

    Staying the hell away from the ecchi shows and K-on!!. Talking about K-on!! wtf is with the OP. Chimpmunk Yui supposed to be moe?

    A few years ago people were claiming that Kyoani was going to be the one to lead anime into the next golden age, but I'm not so sure anybody but the most diehard of their fanboys still thinks so now. They've got nothing going for them at this point outside of profit making capability for sponsors. No fresh ideas, no heart and soul, no overall effort, only good animation quality (and even then no longer close to the best) and marketing leverage.

    I dunno..I just didn't find Sora no Woto all that special, lol~ ah well.

    True true, Hanamaru is a cute show and the colorful cast of characters are so balanced with each other. Hm...genius + genius = genius usually. Have you gone back to using IRC yet?

    Yeah the "standards" sure aren't much to look up to today are they? That's why I just make my own.

    Fortunately, that title you mentioned was not on my original watch list so I'm safe. Waiting for all the Ep 1's to come out before I decide what to watch. Angel Beats would be next on my list, but Ichiban Ushiro no dai Maou and B Gata H were my first choices so far. But I have more to check out.

    Add: You might be the first that I know of who went against Bakemonogatari (unless I misinterpreted what you meant). Outside of excess dialogue from the first 2 arcs that I've seen so far (Crab and Snail), can't say I saw anything too negative about it. On the other hand, I may have to copy the comments you made and say the same thing to endless 8 (Suzumiya Haruhi). Maybe the dialogue was alittle different, but it was the same scenes repeated 7 more times. I don't know if I could deal with that when (not if) the series makes it here.

    The only pitch that almost sells me is funny but bloody I'm afraid. I don't really care for cutesy fun or slow paced slice of life.

    Problem is that I know Angel Beats is written and directed by Jun Maeda and I just can't stand his typically overwrought narratives full of pathos and needless melodramatic twists. His comedic style that often dominates the beginning of the stories also doesn't click with me much, but I will give Angel Beats a shot in a little bit just the same to be fair to him/it and confirm if he's actually up to his old habits or not.

    As for Sora No Woto and Hanemaru....still no sell....sorry.

    P.S: Heroman ended up having a pretty fun opener and I'll be following it through to the next episode for sure. I'm a sucker for sci-fi fantasy adventure stories, but hopefully it develops into something a little more in depth and mature otherwise I can't say I'll be sticking around too long.

    Well seeing as nobody has bothered to sub the first episode of ATV:Phantom Arc which is my most anticipated series it's been pretty crummy so far. I'm checking out Heroman in a moment with some hopes and have already watched the first episode of K-On!! MST3K style and found it to be expectedly awful and soulless....so yeah pretty abysmal, but hopefully it'll get better. After all Rainbow starts tomorrow by which point Senko No Night Raid might also hopefully be subbed and House of Five Leaves next week. I have some hopes for these three shows so hopefully they deliver.

    Sounds like your club doesn't really share my taste much at all. Shin Mazinger was IMO fantastic and a much needed break from the norms of todays anime via the gift of Yasuhiro Imagawa's sweeping style of storytelling and cinematography. Macross Frontier is an okay real robot series with horrible character animation and fantastic CGI battle, but honestly I have quite a few issues with it's choice of antagonists even as a long time fan of the franchise. As for Angel Beats, Hanamaru Kindergarten and Sora No Woto....zero interest in the first two, dropped the last one as you know.
