Tiger and Bunny 1: Hell yes this is looking good. Love the animation style, and while the suits would look better animated the cg isn't that obtrusive.

Gintama season something ep 1: This is the first episode of this series I have ever seen and I could not stop laughing. Oh my god what an opening.

Hansaku Iroha 1: Ah, here's the nice weekly drama to fill Wandering Son's gap. Very pretty, although it seems a little "familiar" from the starting episode.

Nichijou 1: Probably shoulda watched this before Gintama but it was pretty flat to me. Only thing of interest was the robot exploding but they fumbled that joke.

Toriko OVA/ep 1 (from a ways back but whatever): If this is anything to go by then this show will be delicious. I hope the whiny chef dude doesn't show up too much though, he was appallingly grating.

Tiger and Bunny 2: Best single dad anime since....
Spoiler:
The cyclical nature of the episode was pretty nice, and the end had me going "aaawwwww." Man I hope that kid comes back, because that was a neat power. Too bad you don't get points for inspiring people!

If his daughter isn't a fan by the end I'll be disappointed

Gintama ep 203: Man I am going to have to play some catch up come vacation! Totally surprised by this show. I also watched ep 25 on a recommendation, and wow that was like some passive-aggressive singularity or something. Good stuff.

Iroha 2: That girl's got moxie. I got serious deja vu from that "believe in yourself" spiel too, the direction seemed really familiar.
Spoiler:
Woah that ending Image. I'm definitely jumping to a conclusion [so I'm probably wrong] but it really seems like they're setting up that dude as a paedophile. If so I hope she kicks the guy's ass.

Sengoku

Basara

<----- someone please fix this Otome 2: anyone wanna be my Second? I'm like six minutes in and it's so god damn awful. I'm pretty sure that Hideyoshino is a Mary-Sue along with being a pretty awful character, Nobunaga and her aide need more screen time (and better designs) and the only thing I can honestly say I like about this show is the dog.

fake edit: 16 minutes 58 seconds and I'm done.

Edit: Hahahahaha I just found out why: it's another pachinko game, so no one will put any effort into it.

Ohana is 16, which is legal in most of Japan and where I live, so that guy's off the mark if he's a pedophile. He was probably just pissed she found his slashfic.

You may want to spoiler that(?)
Spoiler:
Huh. I had completely forgotten! She definitely looks a lot younger. Still, you can't say the guy isn't acting really creepy writing slash fiction about getting with a sixteen year old girl! Definitely getting a bad vibe from that ending.

Actually, his slashfic was about Ohana and Nako. Here's a translation of the visible portion. Personally, I think he got the seme and uke reversed.

Status: still creepy as ****

Toriko 2: It's the same as the OVA except the OVA is way better. I'm disappointed that this doesn't have a higher budget but I'll be around for the next episode to see if things improve.

Really long name Noitamina show that gg is doing 1: I thought this was alright, the interactions between the leads could definitely use some work (please don't let there be another Nessa, PLEASE), but overall I quite liked it even though the Op has massive spoilers in it. Gonna give it three eps.

*Bamf* It's Enma! *cricklecrackle* ep 1&2: I'm not really sold on this, I think they prolong the jokes for way too long, it's awfully hit and miss for a comedy show, and I'm not entirely impressed with the VAs. I'll give it one more because it was at least enjoyable to watch to some degree. Could end up being this seasons P&S, could end up being a train wreck who knows!

Edit: at the very least teaches us the importance of proper chest support NWS

Derpa Onna 1: HEAD TILT! HEAD TILLLLLLLT!

This reminds me of that movie about a mental patient who says he's an alien sharing a body with someone and I think played by Kevin Spacey except came across as less of a sperg than mattress girl. Other than that it's p much SHAFT's gonna SHAFT. I'll give this 3 episodes to see where it goes but god damn they need to break up those long exchanges, it was awful in bakemonogatari and it's awful here.

Deadman Wonderland 1: Why are they censoring this. Still I think this first episode shows signs of a promising adaptation. Definitely got the warden down, she is bad ass.

Tiger and Bunny 3: Still owns and ninja photobombing will never grow old. Although I don't know why they don't animate the fire guy in 2D when they did that with Tiger in his old costume.

Hansaku Iroh-WTF 3: Uh what

WHAT

What happen!?

Bzzzt

<Rebooting>
</run Kneejerkbot.exe>
<Loading...>

What was even going on in this episode? Was the entire cast suddenly replaced with Bodysnatchers? Is the writer (of the series) an alien? A robot? A robalien?

And what was up with the music? It was almost Fractale-esque.

And fanservice? In this show?

Why

why

why

why

Lesson learned:
Spoiler:
What does:

Kidnapping
Assault
Sexual Assault
Fraud
Grand Theft Auto
Being creepy

get you?

Blue exorcist 1: I liked this first episode, in spite of it being shounen origin story #101. I think the character interactions were believable and it's an interesting spin on demons. Also: a religious father figure that isn't evil for once?????
