    Ok, an update from me on what I'm watching... With work and jogging taking up much of my free time, coupled with my ongoing obsession with Quake Live, anime has taken a slight backseat lately, but I'm still managing to keep up with things over the weekend.

    Arata Kangatari has taken a turn for the worse in the last couple of episodes as the studio realises that time is against them. Nonetheless, I'm still enjoying it. I just hope that the ending will be somewhat satisfactory.

    Shingeki no Kyojin is not without its flaws, but it still remains my most anticipated each week and is easily my favourite from this season. The last anime, I believe, that gave me the same desire to watch it every week was probably Mirai Nikki.

    Date a Live is my guilty pleasure of the season, no question. It's quite cringe worthy with the ridiculous premise, but it's still appealing and fun to watch. Can never pass up a harem, however contrived.

    Devil Survivor 2 The Animation I'm a few episodes behind on. The first episode really surprised me, and I was quite keen to watch the next. However, lately it's not really enticing me to watch it.

    I'm also behind on Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince. It's rather cliched, but from what I've seen so far, it still has potential to offer something a bit different. Has Gundam Seed vibes due to the similar character design and genre.

    Hataraku Maou-sama! is simply hilarious. It's definitely among my top 3 with Shingeki no Kyojin and Suisei no Gargantia being the other two. Love the premise and especially the characters.

    Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko is ok, but it's not really grabbing me all that much, largely because there's not much plot progression.

    As mentioned, Suisei no Gargantia is among my top three for the season. Everything from the animation to the characters to the scripting, it's beautifully done. The premise is not exactly new and it's been done before in different ways, but it's handled really well here. Now that we've delving more into the overarching plot, it's getting even better, not that the slice of life of sorts was not appreciated in the earlier episodes.

    Photo Kano is beyond generic. To be fair, I wasn't expecting much with this one to begin with, but I wanted to watch a romance harem series, so stuck with it. The last episode I've watched upped the ante, which definitely helped. It's far from special, but I'll carry on watching.

    Hey guys, would it be worth me watching Fairy Tale? I know this show has a big and good reputation and has been suggested to me alot so i watched the first 5 episodes and wasn't impressed so just stopped watching it. I have seen just about every anime i've ever heard of and read so much manga and i have unfortunately reached one of those times when i just dont have anything to watch atm so was hoping giving Fairy Tale a second chance could solve that.

    Ok, an update from me on what I'm watching...
    My overall Top 3 of the season (so far) would be Shingeki no Kyojin, Kakumeiki Valvrave and Suisei no Gargantia. Hataraku Maou-sama! would have been up there at the start of the season, but I find myself enjoying it less now that the focus is gradually shifting from comedy to plot and drama. Whereas the more 'plot' and 'drama' that's introduced to Kakumeiki Valvrave, the funnier it gets, even if that may not have been their intention. :giggle:

    Devil Survivor 2 The Animation, I stalled weeks ago, because it wasn't good enough (or bad enough :p:) to make me want any more, though I may still marathon it once it's finished. I've been regretting not dropping Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko and/or RDG: Red Data Girl, as they've just gotten worse and worse IMO, but I might as well finish them now.

    Date A Live was a surprise, I regret being so harsh on it in my season preview, as it has come in or near my Top 5 several weeks. Same goes for Mushibugyou more recently, though that got off to a very slow and generic start. Am looking forward to more of both (Date A Live has a sequel confirmed, while Mushibugyou is running for another 12-13 eps).

    I've seen Big Windup! and is actually pretty good given I typically don't watch sport anime because it is usually either American Football (which I have no idea on the rules or how to play) or something along those lines in general.

    You seen season 2 yet?

    I admit, I knew NOTHING about baseball when I went in to watch Big Windup! but I was pleasantly surprised with how worked up I could be about some of the matches :P I also picked up a few rules from the show then googled the rest. Yup seen season 2 but I was gutted they didn't dub it, and for some reason I can't really remember much of it I heard sales of the first season was pretty poor though.

    Have you tried Kuroko no Basket, it's pretty cool. I mean it lacks total realism but my God, some of the animation on the basketball playing scenes....:coma:

    You should definitely watch Fairy Tale. In terms of story and action it’s not the best, but it is really addictive. I found it kinda boring until I got to the Oracon Seis arc, but when I got to that part I couldn’t stop watching it. There are not many filler eps but because of that the anime ended, at ~174.

    Just finished Red Data Girl... thank goodness. :yawn: Also have the final episodes of Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Bride and Date A Live to watch, which I'm hoping won't disappoint (the first series of Hyakka Ryouran ended poorly, but Samurai Bride looks more promising).

    Catching up with the last 5 or so weeks of anime.

    Trundling through Oreimo at the moment; I had been waiting for the final light novel volume to be released so I'd weep less when the inevitable happened.

    Edit: Nope.

    Ergo Proxy is alright, certainly different from most other series. A bit weirdly-paced and confusing for my liking though, I lost the plot quite early on. :o:

    Sorry guys I was wondering if you could help me identify an anime from my past. I saw it ages ago when I was a kid on toonami but can't remember what it was called. It's mecha btw if that helps.

    The part I remember is that he's a young kid who's father is some sort mobile suit maker for the army. He gets sent to pilot one but doesn't want to so the previous pilot says they'll do it but they're very badly injuired and are moved in a hospital bed, seeing that he agrees to pilot it, once he's inside liquid fills the pilots chamber and then leaves.

    I can't remember anything else, I'd really appreciate if someone could tell me watch anime it was since I really liked it but just can't remember what it was called
