    See thats the thing, I had also heard and seen nothing but praise for it and so as someone who enjoys anime which is odd/ breaks the mould, I jumped at it. It started off, as I said, very funny and very interesting however the things that made it unique i.e. the comedy, the psychology, the themes of social acceptance etc started to fade out about half way. It then fades into a very odd kind of love/not-love story (which to be fair is obvious will happen however I thought they'd handle it better) with some odd side stories which have little or no driving force for the story or character development. There is a certain pathetic fallacy in the anime which is very interesting at points however the ending was disappointing and predictable. All in all, I felt nothing changed from beginning to end and it was a waste of time. I guess I was a little harsh with my initial critique, to be fair it deserves 3.5/5 just because it is very unique and engaging at points however I think it fell into a few traps along the way preventing it from being a truly great rare gem.

    If you really look at the reception it gained, as the manga goes along, it falls in rating. The anime as I said does have great themes however it (perhaps this is just the anime as I'm not familiar with the manga) digresses from its initial purpose towards the end.
    Hmm, given my tolerance for all things average when it comes to anime, I'll probably be less critical, but we'll see.

    Well Mayo Chiki! certainly chose a weird episode to end on. :hmmmm2: Felt like the kind of thing that would normally be in a DVD special/OVA episode... Aside from that, the jokes got a bit old towards the end of the series, but it was better than average.

    Just did exactly the same. :five: Doesn't really feel like the beginning of the new anime season as a result though, since I went straight from one to the other. :p:

    Finally caught up with Sket Dance. I've gotten used to their humour so I'm actually liking it more and more. Episode 24-25 were brilliant, covering the story behind Switch's computer speech. Should have had some tissues, this one's a tearjerker.
    Episode 26 was the Sket Dance x Gintama crossover. Funnier in the manga. Shame they didn't do the "Hello I'm Sugita Tomokazu" gag. Plus the Gintama characters looked off. XD

    I hadn't been paying much attention to the fate anime, as I've yet to watch the first one (still hoping for a DVD price drop :awesome: ) However when I mentioned this elsewhere someone said it was a prequel? Do you think I could watch it without missing too much? Then I might have an idea about whether or not it'd be worth buying the original :teehee:

    Well, if you want parts the visual novel completely spoiled. Feel free to watch Fate/Zero.

    Fate/Stay Night only covered the Fate route of the game. There was the Unlimited Blade Works Movie, but that was mainly aimed at people who know the series already and Heaven's Feel has never been animated.

    The first episode explains a bit about the background, but you won't appreciate it as much if you haven't read/played the VNs. It gives away quite a lot about the Heaven's Feel route and you might not get it at all unless you've read it.

    I thought it was great though.
