Glory to the Tari Tari master race! Laughing

Boy was that a great show. Good fun, good drama, and while nothing particularly came of it, I got the Taichi/Sawa ship teasing that I wanted Laughing

Sword Art Online has been one of those shows where, if anyone breathes even a whisper of doubt about the central premise, thousands of fans will rush to its defense.


That's mostly because there's an explaination for everything. Why could they log out and get moved to hospitals? Because Kayaba allowed it, simple as that.

Quote:
In what is possibly the most trivial, hand-waving case of dealing with domestic abuse ever, Iori says, “Hey mom, he sucks!” And Mom says, “What? You don't like him?” and then pretty much tells him to never come back.


The moral here is that sometimes problems can be solved by something simple like talking about it. Iori thought that her mom being with some one would make her mom happy, and her mom thought that having a dad around would make Iori happy. So they both put up with it for the sake of the other until they learned that it wasn't necessary.

I like how Kokoro Connect resolves each arc differently. Not all of life's problems are resolved in over the top dramatic fashion.

Sengoku Collection doesn't actually involve the Sengoku Period at all.

Kokoro Connect isn't over yet, it's slotted for at least another episode, if not an entire season. I have no idea where it could go next and not seem tired, but you wrote it off as done. It's not. God help us.


The show is slated 17 episodes. It's TV run is done and the remaining 4 episodes are TBA for webstream. If they decide to skip that, it will be February 2013 or March 2013 at the earliest for the next newest episode.

Sengoku Collection is clearly the best of the group though, but very different from the others.

Please tell me you're joking. I'd take Sengoku Otome and most definitely Oda Nobuna no Yabou over Sengoku Collection any day.

Sengoku Collection is the far more interesting show of the trio, and while some episodes don't work as well as others it has some absolutely brilliant stuff in it, and the hands down single best episode of anything in at least the last year or so.

If you only only watched episode 1 of SenColle, you don't really get what the show is doing.

17, now that is the first I have heard that! Crunchyroll has a "Next up Episode 14" on my account, so I hope they will continue it.

Well after reading this, I'm thinking of checking out Polar Bear Cafe now.

Also, definitely need a season 2 of Kuroko no Basket in the future.

Humanity Has Declined was the standout of the season for me (other than Polar Bear's Cafe). Originality is one of the most enjoyable aspects of something for me, and if nothing else, it was quirky and unique. Its humor seemed to be directed right at me, and I loved every episode. I hope a second season comes along soon.
Utakoi was also enjoyable, although it was very melancholy. It ended on a strong note with a very appropriate story that wrapped everything up well.
I don't know why I finished Arcana Famiglia. It was a complete waste of time. The story was predictable, the characters facepalm inducing, and the pacing awful. It wasn't even an entertaining train wreck; it just wasn't any good.
I don't know what to think about Sword Art Online. It's got massive flaws, but it also does somethings very well. I probably continue watching it, but I won't be too disappointed if I have to drop it in favor of something else starting in fall.

Considering he's just turned a game using totally new technology into a death game yeah it would have been nice if they had included his line in the novel where he says that their bodies will be taken care of. By this point yes, the viewer and characters assume that's what has happened but plenty of things that don't make sense appear in anime all the time.

My tops shows stayed Binbougami Ga and Uta Koi all the way to the end. Binbougami was incredibly brilliant in not taking itself too seriously and being aware of the kind of show it was, taking both to its advantage. Uta Koi was my sweet moment of the week, with its sad, melancholic tone. It was just pure beauty

I also loved the episode in Shirokuma Cafe of Polar Bear and Grizzly Bear meeting and becoming friends. I was squealing like an idiot all the way and Polar Bear is such an amazing character with his sarcastic humor and natural kindness. Also, everytime he brings up global warming my heart clenches ):

I also must say that, even if Asuna is becoming too perfect, I liked that she stood up and decided for herself to participate in the fight. I'm happy with the new direction the character is taking (even if the Mommy facet creeped the shit out of me) because she is acting like an independent woman who can make her own decisions instead of waiting home for her macho husband to come back from the fight. Also, the boss fight is looking pretty baddass and I'm enjoying the hell out of all that team fighting that's been amazing so far. I hope it continues down this route

I think if you combined Sengoku Otome with Oda Nobuna you could get a much stronger show in general.

Sengoku Collection is clearly the best of the group though, but very different from the others.


Le what? I didn't watch Oda Nobuna, but I did watch S-Otome which I kind of liked (in spite of the sheer stupidity of the fanservice yuri episode and the disaster they made with Date Masamune) because it brought some interesting things about Hideyoshi changing history (spoiler[like saving Nobunaga from Mitsuhide's betrayal]). On the other hand, I couldn't even watch past episode 10 of S-Collection. The characters were completely shallow, brought nothing to the table and were in no way related to their supposed historical counterparts. Honestly, I cringed all through the "Tokugawa becomes an idol" and have no idea of how I managed to go beyond that.

I'm done with anime. Everything I ever wanted occurred at the end of Polar Bear Cafe.

Hunter x Hunter is still entertaining, and...that's really all I've got. Wish I had more to say, but I haven't had much time to follow anything this season.

For the Sword Art Online connundrum: yeah in the novel Kayaba's little speech in the beginning about the rules of dying is longer. The full conditions for death are die in the game; have someone attempt to remove the NerveGear from your head; be disconnected from a power source for more than 10 minutes; be disconnected from the internet for more than 2 hours. For wordiness sake its a little hard to slide something like that in considering how much other info he's already dumping but I suppose it would have cleared up a bit of the confusion. Really for a series based on a novel I'm surprised with how closely it follows the original story, a lot of times you lose little details in the translation that can really hurt the plot. The only major point that's lost here has to deal with the PKing guild Laughing Coffin, but that's not even too major of one.
