    For me I have...


    Mawaru Penguindrum
    Kamisama no Memo-chou
    Usagi Drop

    Most likely:

    Dantalion no Shoka (Well it looks good, and it's Gainax).
    Sacred Seven
    Kamisama Dolls
    The Idolm@ster

    Maybe for the lolz:


    Something dramatic has to happen for me to ever watch:

    Ikoku Meiro no Croisee (I haven't even made it past 7 minutes 42 seconds in the first episode)

    Of course I still have the two cour shows form last season as well

    BTW A-1 pictures is part of Gainax alah Xebec to IG? If so, that's very interesting....

    I totally agree man. I'm just loving it this year. No I totally agree with you, Penguindrum has a ton of potential. First anime I rated the first episode 10/10 in a long, long, long time. I was that captivated from start to finish.

    Right now Madoka is at the top this year with Steins;gate closely behind it for me (Will pass if its ending is good probably), and I think even this can top those two, and THAT's saying something. Not to mention I still have my lovely Fate/Zero later this year .

    Thanks for the response to my Anohana review. Sorry that the blog isn't working for you. I'll try to remember to ask RP about that.

    Just a few things:

    1. What I meant by C having "tight plot cohesion" is basically that it didn't waste any time and (most importantly) had no filler episodes. However, it's fair to say that it didn't always flow well, and could feel very choppy in parts.

    2. My "Is it any wonder that RP has chosen her (Menma) to be the virtual mascot of this blog site? " line was playful ribbing mostly, lol. But yes, as moe as Menma is, I hope that RP chooses a different anime character to take her place once he finds a new one that impresses him, lol.

    3. As you can probably tell, I try to take an almost poetic approach with my blog writing style (hence all the alliteration). I try to create pithy and witty-sounding lines that make important points (even if not as accurately as the point could be in more standard English. ). And that's why I used the "slice of life which does not ignore the impact of death" line. Sounded kind of pithy/witty to my ears when I repeated it to myself while writing it.

    You're right that other slice of life shows tackle the topic of death, but Anohana delves into that topic more than any other slice of life/drama I've seen, so I felt it was worth a mention.

    Anyway, glad that you enjoyed the review, and I'm very glad that it's inspired you to write your own. Our takes on Anohana are very similar, almost identical even.

    Well BL or no BL, I thought the No. 6 episode was pretty good. And damn, I want to see mawaru penguindrum !! GRR. Must resist RAWS!

    And yes... 2011 is definitely the year that anime remembered how good it can be. I almost lost all faith these last 2-3 years.

    For the record, I didn't make my avatar and sig. Somebody else made it for me so I'm not taking the credit

    Heh, I thought Alice coming off as pretentious was a bit of the point? Not that you have to like that, just saying.

    Yeah, I don't think anyone really liked the last scene, it was out of place.

    Perhaps a combination of the voice acting and the visuals just made everything seem understated to you. It doesn't quite sparkle like say Hanasaku Iroha . It also doesn't help that the mian character is purposely made to look dull, like a pixel.

    Not that I think that way necessarily, but I can understand perhaps why you may have thought that way.

    Fascinating take on Kamisama no Memochou. Even though I liked it a lot more than you did, I think I can see where you are coming from on some of your points. However, my main concern personally is simply that it's done by JC Staff, lol.
