Watch Maburaho!

It's funny, no seriously. It is. Since my post got wiped out, I'm gonna have to recommend it again to everyone. So watch it! Or I'll eat your kitty!

yeah, i know. i'm usually the serious anime person and i try to stay away from overused formulas like many-girls-go-after-one-guy. but i think (so far) that maburaho is not only funny, but interesting as well (good concept, story).

I already made up my mind after trying the first eps, I'm definately going to watch this ^^ The one-guy-many-girls thing is a recycled concept, but never gets old IMO ^^ Plus this one might actually have a somewhat decent storyline, witht the interesting concept of the guy only being able to use magic 8 times before he dies.

So, you guys think he'll die before the end of the series or not?

I'm actually thinking that he'll get into a situation (read: mortal danger to himself or yuna) and be forced to use that last magic point.

He probably won't die though, something about his latent magic powers and/or the power of love.

Either way, this is a very good anime and it deviates enough from the tired one guy/lotsa girls formula to be interesting. I'm definitely gonna be watching

Looks good so far. It's quite formulaic but it's interesting enough to get one's attention. The third episode, though, wasn't as good as the first two. I hope it gets better.

yeah the 3rd ep sucked. i think that the underclassman SHOULD actually flirt with him or try and kill him. one or the other. this "i am going to kill you" then ... not doing anything thing is annoying.

yeah. too bad the main characters dont have to live together anymore.

Well now everyone is living together... just not in the same room. All the girls are just down the hall, instead of in a different building.

I think you need to consider her feelings. She wants him dead (to save herself), but she's not willing to take the final step and become a murderer. Since she isn't willing to murder someone, even to prevent such a horrible fate for herself, she's hoping that her threats will serve the purpose of keeping him getting too close to her. After all, if he wanted to marry her, her family would give her to him.... yuck!

It does sound interesting if that happens. I kinda enjoy the current way things are going too, though. I found Rin working at construction - well demolition - hilarious.

Wandering A.I., I think your spolier...is true. I saw it on another site as well. I'm sure there's much to look forward to in this series!

Edited: just saw that A-Keep has joined in the fun. Now we have some competition.

Anyway, whatever it is that will happen, this series has certainly entertained me so far (then again I can say that for the majority of the shows I'm watching right now)... So hopefully it'll continue to do so.

I am definetly planning on watching this one. It has a Love Hina with magic feel to it that i love. The childhood promise only adds to the similarities.

Seems that I'm in the minority as one who doesn't really like this series. I gave it a fair try and chuckled a bit here and there, but ultimately I find myself getting bored with it. It really is just the same gag repeated over and over in every episode (the three that I've seen, anyway).

Zuh.

I think it's been alright so far, nothing terribly interesting in the first 3 eps. I really liked the 1st ep, but the last 2 have been less enjoyable. It's still early, and even though I didn't enjoy the last 2 eps much, there are still things to enjoy about it so I'm definately gonna stick with it, at least so far.
