Stop the presses, this is goddamn awesome! Four-hundred and eighty whole pixels of vertical resolution? That's totally amazing, new and exciting! Not to mention, it's obviously better than seven-hundred and twenty of the same kind.

No really, why do you write the articles like that? That's like saying "Buy this car, now with air conditioning!" spoiler[(Assuming in live in affluent places with tropical/subtropical climates, to preempt any witty comments and people living in Nova Scotia or Norway not needing AC.)] Just call it what is is, plain old boring SD.

Miracle Train: proving that male-oriented shows aren't the only ones running out of good ideas!

fuzaco, you're plugging for "Fairy Tail," I'm still holding out a dim hope for "Kuuchuu Buranku."

I agree and it is kinda odd the article doesnt mention aything about 720p HD...did they stop doing that at crunchyroll? im not subscribed because i find the site a rip off but i know that with naruto they had 720p streams...and for other shows as well they did.

i <3 haruka but ill be taking my streaming to other sites with real HD and where i wont have to wait a week :\

Eh ... I will be watching it anyway. I have been enjoying Hetalia: Axis Powers, which also utilizes the "anthropomorphized as bishonen" gimmick. It remains to be seen if said gimmick will work as well in Miracle Train, but even so, Kenichi Kasai is directing the latter. That is enough for me.

He also directed Kimikiss. Even a great director can only do so much with a rotten premise. Still, I suppose one shouldn't give one's hopes up right away, eh? We'll see what the season previews say.

I'm only gonna watch Miracle Train for the fanservice/estrogen brigade bait.

kokuryu, I can relate to your statement. In addition to developing social relationships, I will balancing my anime viewing with my Home Depot job and last semester of community college. If CrunchyRoll gets the second seasons of Queen's Blade and White Album, Fairy Tail, Sacred Blacksmith, Winter Sonata, and Romance of the 3 Kingdoms, then most of the anime I will be watching this fall will be legit (with the exception of the dubbed Bleach and Yugioh 5Ds and other titles I may decide to watch).

As many of us know, moe is an acquired taste. Haruka has moe in it and I enjoyed it. I also enjoyed the fact her seiyuu, Mamiko Noto, was also Kizaki in Linebarrel. Mecha is also an acquired taste. But because it had harem aspects (yet another acquired taste) and hot women, I enjoyed the show. For me, I can enjoy anime when there are hot women.

Ristorant Paradiso's younger version?
That's the feeling I get from this anime.
Well, I'm gonna be reading the review as soon as it's out, until then...

Ahh, Miracle Train. I really have no idea what to expect but I'll probably watch it anyway, if only because the only other anime that interests me this season is more Hetalia, if that even counts. Of course I said the same thing before about 07-Ghost and only managed to get up to ep06 before putting that aside, so we'll see if these train boys fare better.

I love Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu. Wish it could be released on DVD. At least I can watch the second season legally (even though CR's player aggravates me to no end).

Fairy Tail would certainly be a huge coup.
The only other they'd be missing to top the seasons best shows would be the new Darker Than Black, but that'd probably be more in FUNi's area. They've certainly dropped the ball not getting ahold of that thus far...
