    Is anyone here watching this season's High School Star Musical, Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry, Taimadou Gakuen 35 Shiken Shoutai, Heavy Object or Hidan no Aria AA? And if so, would you recommend them?

    As usual at the mid-season point, I'm looking for one or two new anime to replace those I haven't been enjoying... while I wasn't impressed with the first episodes of any of the above, I'd be willing to give them a second shot, so some help narrowing things down would be greatly appreciated.

    I dropped Heavy Object after 4 episodes and I have no idea why I held on for so long. Can't say I would advise it and that seems to be the general consensus.

    Watched up to episode 5 of rakudai kishi no cavalry.. it's okay the main girl who's a tsudere is also not "too" crazy i.e. misunderstanding everything. MC (guy) is also pretty strong, not useless with girls, the romance progresses refreshingly fast and the action scenes are pretty well details and the animation isn't lazy (still pictures). As for the other animes I haven't watched them as I read manga or light novels more then watch anime nowadays.


    Onepunch man is released up to episode 5 I'd deffo recommend that. The story is great, doesn't take itself too seriously and the animation is great..not FSNUBW or 5CM/SEC but still great amounts of detail (if you haven't watched it yet )

    Cheers! I originally skipped Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry because I've seen a lot of magical school harem anime, a lot of which featured tsundere characters, so it didn't strike me as overly original. But definitely a better first episode than that of the similar Gakusen Toshi Asterisk, at least! I'll give it another look, hopefully now the cliche character and setting introduction is out of the way, I can look forward to more action.

    One Punch Man is one of the 18 ongoing series already on my watching list, and I'm not planning on dropping it. I'm enjoying the comedy so far, and as you say, the animation is spectacular.

    Finished my Evangelion rewatch, I had been putting it off for ages but I'm glad that I finally got to do it. Preparing myself to revisit End of Evangelion sometime tomorrow.

    I somehow missed your reply last night! :o: Thanks for the warning, though. The plot sounded alright on paper, but the first episode was a bit of a mess - shame to hear that's still the case.

    So far I have to say I'm enjoying the sequels more this season. Had to drop Seraph of the end though, thought season 2 might have been an improvement from S1 but guess not.

    Starmyu (High School Star Musical) is quite honestly one of the best shows I'm watching this season - it's really surprised me!

    Holy crap I thought it was July still! Having blitzed some the Grisia shows recently i'm back into viewing again but not seen anything since I started plodding through Kill la Kill. I may as well run my Secret Santa again haven't I? Will have to see when as i'm in Holland next weekend. Want to be my elf again?

    Is anybody interested in an Anime Secret Santa for TSR (it'll be my third year running it)?

    Hi
    Would any of you chaps be interested in the annual Anime Secret Santa? Quite easy to participate in really. In a nutshell you pick 3 animes for the person you are 'picking for' whilst also receiving 3 animes to watch from your secret santa. I handle all the admin work so no stress involved really

    Thanks for running this again! Sign me up, I handled two Secret Santas last year, so I'll manage again somehow. :p: And sure, I'll be elf.

    Never done this before as I'm new to TSR but how would you prove you actually watched the anime?? or that the person tagged would watch those they've been challenged to watch? Sorry if I'm being a downer

    I usually write reviews for the series I've watched for the Secret Santa, but you don't have to go to that much effort if you don't want to. Just a post saying whether you enjoyed them or not would suffice. :yes:

    ...that's more than I usually get each year from the people I give series to, anyway. :sad: Unfortunately there's not much you can do if your recipient doesn't play along, aside from keep nagging them after Christmas once the givers' names are revealed to everyone. :p:

    What leads an anime to get a remake? I really like a few animes but they wander off the manga into something monstrous and ugly. The plot becomes obscure and fast paced and it just ends the wrong way. So what leads an anime to get a remake?

    Yeah I'll play again this year - although I'll probably have the short series/ova/movie restriction in place.......I seem to have very little time these days! Don't know how I'm going to manage the Reverse Thieves Secret Santa thing and all my end of year blogging this year.

    Usually it has to be something VERY popular, and if the manga/light novel is still ongoing, all the better since the new adaptation can be used to boost sales. :dontknow:

    As Mr Jellyfish said we do rely on the honesty of the people on TSR I have to say it is far better than some of the people on MAL/AP. As I take a short while to organise the secret santa, anybody who isn't interested usually drops out after a few days and I source active replacements So the majority of people taking part are active in this thread/forum and will be quite happy to see and receive feedback after xmas.

    Absolutely fine asking questions It's quite fun receiving some bizarre yet strange anime choices!
