Oh and justinstrife I would recommend watching Claymore if you are not watching it already. When episode 8 comes out next week (of Claymore) there is going to be a huge explosion on that forum(The strictly anime watchers are going to go crazy)

OFF Topic a little but there has been a ton of Top Animes released this season:

1)Claymore(Top quality on everything.. its literally perfect)
2)Kaze no Stigma(top quality story telling.. animation subpar)
3)Seto no Hanayome(just a great and funny anime.. animation solid)
4)Darker than Black(very intriguing.. good animation)
5)Sola(just very solid overall)
6)Heroic Age(story lagging a little, but its animation quality and story scope is great)
7)Kaibutsu Oujo(interesting, but the animation is only slightly better than KNS)
8)Ookiku Furikabutte(very underated baseball series)
9)Gigantic Formula(standard mech combat fare, but its all really well done)

I am also watching History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi, but I wouldn't consider it a part of the Spring Season since it started months ago.

This has just been a incredible anime season I have never watched so many anime shows at once.. I am starting to fall behind now.
Frankly, time is something I don't have. I work full time, am getting my turbo-charged 240sx licensed, just got my corvette back from the body shop, selling it to my dad, selling my twin-turbo RX-7, buying my friend's supercharged corvette, still owe 10 grand in bills, truck's got a wheel bearing that needs to be replaced, the list goes on and on here. I don't have any free time to go and do normal things. I'm usually burnt out and asleep by 9. I do however, keep tabs on the Kaze no Stigma thread and anime as it's the only show I've seen tibs on, that is worth that 20 minutes of viewing that I have.

Oh how I long for the days when I didn't have bills or a job.

Haha dude, welcome to life? That's how it usually is. If I started to list the things I need to get done by yesterday, we'd still be here tomorrow.

That aside, Claymore is an above-average manga (which started out below average but got better as it went), and the anime adaptation is very tastefully done and has high production values... except during the fight scenes, which are as cheap as the ones in Kaze no Stigma if not cheaper. Can't blame them though, as the original was a bit lacking in that regard. The story is pretty good though. It's still a good pick, so you might wanna keep it on the back burner till there is a lull in your schedule.

First time I see this anime, I thought....Shana? (Ayako somehow looks like Shana at first glance -- minus the big eyes ). Anyway, it was really nice and I'm hooked and I think I'm gonna stick around. Kazuma looks cool whenever he's using his wind powers

A mild no from me, but I might convert it to a yes if the following can be satisfied:

1) an acceleration of posts in the next month
2) more anime blogs picking this up (only 1 or 2 on animenano atm)

hmm for someone who is so cool and calm headed, he sure has weird hobbies...lol.

Maybe it's because he is so cool and calm headed that he needs other's frustration to quell the frustration inside of him...

Nah. I want to see her get her butt kicked, then Kazuma save the day again, and her realizing there's more than just being the head of her clan.

The clan hasn't done much good the past few hundred years, it needs a new direction.

Kazuma really has a weird hobby of setting people off. Ayano just makes it so easy that he probably can't resist it. It's strange how Kazuma let her fight so her confidence would grow, but spends a lot of time telling her she'll be a burden or in the way. It might just be that she gets upset easily, which is good for a decoy. But we can see its really bothering her that he sees her that way which can't be good.

I thought Kazuma's lines in the beginning of episode 5 were awesome. When he makes his sexual comment towards Misao; most viewers are led to think that's he's a jerk for asking Misao to perform sexual favors for compensation. But Kazuma knew what Oogami's real intentions were so he simply played along.

This is a good show. The animation is funky but the concept of the anime works. Oh, and Ayano's chasing scene was hilarious. She was looking in trash cans and climbing poles to find Kazuma. She later had her brother join in the pointless activities. =P

I don't feel as negatively about Ayano in the novel version, but I think those parts that are being omitted, are the reason why I don't like her in the anime. If they had shown these other parts of her from the novel, in the anime, I'd be able to like her better. As for Kazuma being cold to her in the novels, he's got his own reasons. She can't possibly know the hardships others have gone through, as things have always gone her way.

It's true that the Ayano in the novels in comparison to the anime version is a lot more likable. I'm just glad we have the summaries to turn to in order to find a fuller experience. Since they are the same person I'm just using the novel version to add to her in the anime.

Certainly in episode 5 Ayano really led a humorous chase for Kazuma. It was seeing them look in garbge cans, climb up poles. Completely ridiculous that they would hope to find him that way but still funny in its own way. Oh and Ren isn't Ayano's brother. He's Kazuma's and they are just cousins.

Spoiler for Cold Kazuma:
