    I keep forgetting Shana III exists. Maybe Shana II was so bad to me that I lost interest in the franchise as a whole.

    Also... I'm going to say this: Kill La Kill is not the best anime of the season. That title goes to Samurai Flamenco. Seriously, the pacing, the characters and the great mixture of slice of life, comedy and some tense moments makes it one of the best animes that I have seen in a while.

    You have to be crazy to not like the anime at least.

    The only thing there I'd suggest avoiding entirely is Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb - not because it's bad (it actually made my Top 12 for last year), but because it's the fourth series of Hidamari Sketch, so you'd miss all the character introduction and several jokes might be lost on you if you started there. :p:

    [EDIT] Actually, the videos they have listed under Seitokai no Ichizon ('Student Council's Discretion') seems to be the second series as well, so be wary of anything that has a sequel. :sadnod:

    Coppelion and Kyoukai no Kanata ('Beyond the Boundary') are both from the current anime season, so have only just started. I'm quite liking the former so far, but dropped the latter because the main character instantly got on my nerves.

    Aside from those, I'd categorise the series on the site as follows (again, these are just my opinions)

    Awesome: Black Lagoon, 'Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions!', Code Geass, Death Note, 'Princess Jellyfish'

    Pretty good: Bakuman, Magi, Persona 4, Tamako Market, Tiger and Bunny, UN-GO

    Meh: Maoyuu, 'Problem Children...', 'Samurai Girls', [email protected], Vampire Knight

    The rest I haven't watched yet.

    Shana II was terrible, and Shana III wasn't much better. If the former was too slow and boring, the latter tried to fit too much into too few episodes, and ended up as a confusing mess. Doesn't stop the OP theme from being one of the best of its year, though. :p:

    I'm struggling to name a 'series of the season' at the moment. Kill la Kill obviously stood out at the beginning due to its style and pacing, but only three episodes in and to me it already feels like it's getting old. All style and very little substance. :sadnod: Samurai Flamenco, I do like, since it's got a great premise and is at least trying to develop some interesting characters, but I can't help but feel I've seen better. :s: I actually think the show I'm enjoying the most so far might be Yowamushi Pedal, though as it's panning out like most other sport/game anime so far, I'm not sure it's original enough to deserve the title. :p:

    It's a bit too early for me to select a 'series of the season'. Nonetheless, to surmise...

    Kill la Kill has probably left the biggest impression in terms of originality, stylistically wise, but similarly I have a slight concern that the formula will start to wear thin. We need some plot progression.

    Hajime no Ipoo Rising will probably turn out to be one of the stronger contenders for the title, but as a sequel of a very popular and established series, I feel like it's somewhat cheating in that regard. The same can be said of Kuroko and Magi.

    Machine-Doll wa Kizutsukanai, Ace of Diamond, Tokyo Ravens, Strike the Blood and Log Horizon are all holding my interest more than the others I'm also following, but none are exceptional, a la Fate/Zero or Shingeki no Kyojin proportions, but we'll see how they transpire.

    Samurai Flamenco is amusing enough, and has a tinge of distinction among the others that are airing this season, but I agree that there's something missing.

    Coppelion is a disappointment of sorts, but I haven't lost hope yet.

    I suppose, ultimately, this season has a lot of promising and entertaining offerings, but nothing that is exceptional. The sequels, in that regard, help to balance this.

    Definitely agree that there's nothing exceptional this season (so far), but on the other hand, I'm finding that I really like everything that I've picked up - I'm following 16 new anime, and there's not much separating them, which is making my weekly blog rankings tougher to put together than usual. :p:

    Did anyone recognise the Pulp Fiction and Terminator references in episode 4 of Kill la Kill? That aside, this show amuses me to no end. :giggle:
