    I finished The Tatatami Galaxy yesterday, it was amazing. I'm not sure what to rate it, but I'm giving it a 9/10 for now,
    Should be a 10 m8. Yuasa is GOAT.

    I'm still trying to compose my thoughts, it really was unlike any anime I've seen before. I rarely give out 10s but I might make another exception. Heck, even Baccano got a 9, and I loved it.

    I also finished the series a few days ago. Very unique and cleverly done. :yes:

    Is anyone here watching Triage X, Etotama, Denpa Kyoushi, Kyoukai no Rinne and/or Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo, and if so, what do you think of any of them? (I'm particularly interested in Yamada-kun, since I haven't seen the first episode myself yet).

    As usual I'm planning to drop a few series mid-season and (maybe) give a second chance to some of those I skipped, but nothing jumps out at me. :s: Falling back on Kaitou Joker and/or UtaPri is always an option, but if anyone can convince me any of the above shows are worth a look then I'll give them priority. :yes:

    I actually like Yamada-kun so far, it's nothing amazing but it's a fairly enjoyable watch.

    I dropped Denpa Kyoushi after episode 3, the story wasn't atrocious but it was still pretty boring at points. That combined with all round sloppy production and bad animation made me drop it. I wouldn't bother with it.

    Cheers! I'll be sure to give Yamada-kun a look. :yes: Only skipped it because it aired so much later than everything else.

    You started on a very high note, let me tell you .

    Try and experience as many different genres as you can during your time in the anime-realm. I'd recommend moving towards Fate/Stay Night or Elfen Lied next to keep you in the realms of ''frickin' good'' . Though both Gosick and No Game No Life have the whole ''Oooh, let's use immense amounts of inconceivable logic to figure out this mystery'' that Death Note has :lol:

    Ignoring sequels, Arslan Senki has been the stand out series for me this season. The characters and their dialogue and interactions are great, and the animation is of a high standard for the most part (though unfortunately the first episode opens with some very dubious CGI, which doesn't make a very good first impression!)

    Kekkai Sensen is also worth a look IMO, I'd say it probably has the best quality animation of anything this season, definitely the best soundtrack this season, and a fun cast. All the five episodes so far have been enjoyable, but last week's 5th episode was on another level.

    Seconding everything suggested by Nirgilis, and I'd also recommend Zetsuen no Tempest, Kaiji and Code Geass, which all feature intelligent characters in high stakes situations. :yes:

    So Archer is Shirou? Didn't expect that. Although the signs were there from the start, I feel a bit stupid for not realising.

    I read that spoiler ages ago, when I was trying to find a photo of Gilgamesh for you to show you how similar he looks to Kise :lol:

    Again, it's very mainstream like FS/N or Elfen Lied that I recommended to you. However, it is internationally recognised, so I wouldn't say it's a bad idea to watch it

    I haven't seen it myself (since I'm slightly hipster and avoid mainstream anime), but I'll quote in AJ for you :yep:

    Of topic... but if it takes up the space required for a spoiler, I'm sure it's acceptable, right?

    I can't believe that you've been around since 2010 and I don't know your name. Did you change it recently?

    Hehe, I changed my name in late 2011 . But I spent the years of 2010-2014 in the Study Help sections since that's my primary moderation area . I was extended over to Hobbies & Interests 2/3 months ago to cover a temporary absence in the team, so I'm getting to know the members under my wing in here now :yep:

    You been around for long? . Your account says not so much :lol:

    Have you ever taken a personality test? http://www.16personalities.com/free-personality-test I'm absolutely sure you'll get INFJ. You have this vibe I only get when around INFJs. If not, I'll eat my hat... but it's so clear that you are :P

    How are you handling the increased responsibility? Do you enjoy it? I can't imagine one good reason to be a mod. Name 3! :lol:

    I was Occams Chainsaw in a previous life. You might have seen me around in Maths/Science sections of study help, depending on your area of expertise.
