Definitely enjoyed My Little Monster. The somewhat wonky pace didn't really bother me, partially because I was having so much fun watching the characters, and partially because jumping ahead a month helped move the relationship (such as it is) forward a bit more than one might expect for the first episode, which was a nice surprise. The only thing that really bothered me was that scene spoiler[in the alley with the rape line, because it felt really out of place and more than a little off-putting for a character who was so comically over the top (the very next thing he does is pull a box over his head and tell her to follow him). Obviously wasn't a serious threat, and it did kind of show further just how out of touch Haru is with the way his actions and words affect others, but I still didn't really like it.]

Small misstep aside, I really enjoyed the show, and am looking forward to more.

I actually enjoyed My Little Monster quite a bit. I don't typically watch shoujo stuff because the art is a turn off, but Brains Base used quite a nice art style for this show, so it made it much more appealing to me. The story is also kinda interesting, though I hope that the guy stops being so obsessed with the girl later on. Or at least tones it down a bit.

Alright, it started and have to say that My Little Monster was pretty good after watching it. I liked the comedy, drama, and that spoiler[surprise kiss at the end]. Ha, those two main characters makes a pretty amusing duo.

The other series Hiiro no Kakera S2 was basically spoiler[recap] so wasn't too catchy. The OP song was sort of nice though

*Puts on a hard hat for good measure*

I think I'm ready.

Shall I start by getting the obvious ones out of the way?

I can't wait for Zac to review XXXbooblolibaitshow#999!

Will Zac be reviewing CanIBoneMyImouto-chan?

Reminder #6232: Typically Zac only reviews things that either the rest of us haven't gotten to yet or that really catch his attention.

You can't trust Zac's previews anyways. Look at the grade he gave the Madoka Magica preview! LE GASP! Travesty!

Herpderp, ANN reviewers suck. They're all one hive mind anyways.

GAWD, WHATEVER HAPPENED TO OBJECTIVE REVIEWS!

Reviews are meant to be subjective, moron.

Suck my [censored words can't be repeated in polite company].

I am personally deeply offended by "blahblahblah" that Zac said. Y'know, just because I like---

A creeper is a creeper. We calls it likes we sees it.

Haha, sucks to be you. This shows is projected to sell #### units. Look at these pre-order numbers.


Hmm... am I missing any?

You forgot that all ANN reviewers not named Zac will be neglected in the forums even if they rank a show with high marks. Seriously, it's like Rebecca, Carl, Carlo, and Bamboo don't even exist. Anime cry

My Little Monsters: This is going to be one heck of a show! At first, the fast pacing was a bit difficult to catch everything but the humor between the couple is great! Haru is like a huge, cute puppy with anger management issues while Ice Queen Shizuku is so witty and adorable. spoiler[And she can take a punch to the face very well. Ouch!] Will continue!!

I actually found the first episode to be pretty dumb.

Haru is so forceful and violent that its no surprise that everyone avoids him. Shizuku not only goes to warn him about his imminent expulsion when she hardly knows him, but she actually starts have feelings for him even though he threatened her of rape and 'inadvertently' hit her so hard that she started bleeding out of her nose.

The guy is so annoying with his nagging and violent nature but he's emotionally vulnerable and a regular white knight, and on top of that, he's actually pretty good at studies. So yeah, we got our typical shoujo hero, who's perfect at everything but one thing, which is obviously where our Shizuku comes in. She's supposed to leash him and make sure he doesn't get into trouble by constantly babysitting him.

I sure as hell hope that she doesn't have to be rescued by punks all the time, who just want to get to Haru because I can totally see that happening.

An abysmal first episode for me but I'm gonna stick with it a couple of episodes to see if anything changes 'cause yes I actually do dig the art style.

Btw Rebecca Shizuku reminds me of Maka from Soul Eater. Even some of their personality traits overlap each other.
