    Selector Infected WIXOSS has turned out to be a lot better than I was expecting. There's this underlying feeling that's rather unsettling, bordering on sinister. It keeps you on your toes and continues to magnify with each episode. The revelation in episode 5 was particularly harrowing.

    In a way, it's similar to Puella Magi Madoka Magica in that it uses a common genre of anime and turns it on its head. Normally, these game based anime are lighthearted, but that's definitely not the case here.

    HD-remastered Nadia: Secret Of Blue Water. :coma: I might actually have to rewatch some of these series, though if I do, I'll be skipping the island arc. :yucky:

    Started the manga series Magnolia earlier. Nothing special so far, but the first volume had its fun moments. I like that each volume contains an extra chapter, telling the same story from one of the other major character's (Lily's) perspective, though it did end up a little repetitive in places. Means I get to mark two series for the price of one as read on A-P, though. :p:

    I've also now got the final volume of Psyren to read - I'm not expecting a lot from the finale, as it hasn't left itself many chapters to wrap things up, but we'll see.

    I had hoped to resume one of my long stalled series to replace Psyren afterwards, possibly either Maria+Holic or Keroro Gunsou (both on hold since Tokyopop went bust)... but it seems that neither is being scanlated. :s: I'll probably end up going with Ansatsu Kyoushítsu instead, because the synopsis appeals to me a lot. Should hopefully prove more interesting than this season's assassin school anime Akuma no Riddle has so far, at least.

    Finished Golden Time & Log Horizon. Thought Golden Time had a decent wrap up & Log Horizon had a good balance of concluding season 1 and teasing season 2. Wouldn't have been less happy if season 2 hadn't already been announced!

    When I was watching Log Horizon, I couldn't help but think "OMG noob tank can't keep aggro" LOL

    Finished watching Sherlock Hound (about time really, I bought the DVD box set at least two years ago!) Despite being episodic, repetitive and dubbed, as well as obviously being aimed at younger audiences, I found it surprisingly enjoyable. You can tell it was directed by Miyazaki, it looked and felt very Ghibli, if that makes sense. :p: Production values weren't as high though, of course.

    Replacing that will be The Third; this series has been on my want to watch list even longer than Sherlock Hound, I got the files from the then-president of Aberanime in 2011. Though now that I've become obsessed with maxing the quality of my anime, I won't even be watching those files, as I've found a better quality DVD rip. :giggle:

    I've already asked on Facebook and on my blog, but may as well get some more opinions here: I've got tomorrow off from work, and plan to watch the 2nd and 3rd eps of a few of the new Spring series I initially skipped over, but I probably won't have time for everything. Are there any series in particular that anybody would recommend? Here's what I'm already watching.

    Viz are releasing Assassination Classroom in December although by then they'll be about 12 volumes behind Japan. I think they've licensed pretty much all of Jump's current successful series except the sports ones now (Kuroko & Haikyuu).

    Thanks for the heads up! I prefer to buy series if they're available licensed, so I'll wait. Chances are it'll be available on Kindle if Viz are the ones releasing it.

    Uminiku - In English, it is translated into "When Seagulls Cry" - A very good series but the ending is left open and was never really completed, so, it is up to you how you view what happened.

    Uminiku was written by the same person who wrote Higurashi

    Also has a pretty bad ass opening:

    Spoiler:
    Show


    Black Butler - I found this very funny but, I personally found the first episode rather bland.

    Can't think of any more off the top of my head (kinda got exams on the brain, my last one is on Friday...)
    Someone shoot me (out of a cannon), at high speed so I will be far away from here... :sad:

    Yeah, they're releasing it digitally as well. They seemed pretty certain they weren't going to release it with the issue of guns in classrooms being a pretty sensitive topic in America so I was pleasantly surprised when they announced it.

    I found the ANN article, but it didn't specify whether the digital release would be US-only like a lot of their titles or not. :dontknow: Either way I'll wait and see, there's plenty more to read in the meantime.

    Since I didn't get any Spring anime recommendations here in the end (I'm disappointed in all of you :sadnod: :p:), I went with the shows suggested by friends on Facebook, along with a few I remained vaguely interested in myself. Here's my thoughts

    Kamigami no Asobi (ep 2) - Didn't do anything for me at all, sadly. It's no UtaPri. :no:

    Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou (ep 2) - An improvement on the first episode, but I've still seen much better. :yawn:

    No Game No Life (ep 3) - No way.

    Ping Pong the Animation (ep 2) - Eh, it's way better than the above, but I'm still not fully convinced it's for me. Will give it another episode.

    M3: Sono Kuroki Hagane (ep 1 & 2) - Skipped this first time around as it aired so late... what am I watching? It's probably terrible, but the characters are crazy enough that it's holding my interest. Again, I'll give it a third episode. :beard:

    Welcome to the society, once again.

    Based on the series you've said you liked there, I'd recommend any of the following:

    Revolutionary Girl Utena

    Bokurano

    Welcome to the NHK!

    Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi

    Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashìta

    Some are quite dark and serious, others are laugh out loud comedies, but there should be plenty of mind****s to be had with most of them. :p: Hope at least one of them interests you.
