Watched Hanamonogatari - and was left dissatisfied. If I were to arrange the series so far from most favorite to least favorite, it would go: Bake, SS, Nise, Hana, Neko. Those last two, while it was nice to have them expand on those characters, just felt weak when compared to the other arcs...and really, every season after Bakemonogatari hasn't been as good as that first season. But hey, Hana happened, and hopefully the next arc is better. Moving on!
Natsume season 2 - Watched up to episode 9. This show continues to be enjoyable and super-chill to watch.
Space Dandy Season 2 - Watched episode 8 and was like wut? This episode felt like an ode to over-long indie arthouse sci-fi films...and I like that sort of thing...but I just don't think it worked here. If this were the intro episode to a different show that was all about this sort of thing, I'd be down with that, but it was just too flat of an episode for Space Dandy.
I watched season 3 of Korra. I enjoyed it. That P'Li death. Korra in a wheelchair. Mako making use of his lightning bending. Bolin figuring out lava bending. Ghazan's suicide. Jinora's new tattoos and shaved head. Not to mention Ming-Hua's armlessness and this height difference were pretty cool too:
Watched the first season of Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor. I always appreciate when a show defies my expectations. It was clear that Kaiji had to survive and still be in debt somehow by the end, by the mere existence of a second season, but I wasn't sure how. At so many points during the final gamble, I thought he would catch on to Hyodo's tricks, but he didn't until it was far too late. I was ready for him to bust out some Ace Attorney shit and spot the crease in the paper as Hyodo was holding it. But, he ended up not noticing it and having his fingers chopped off. Not to mention his ear and shit. I love when a series does that sort of thing, when it goes there. When the protagonist's Plot Armorisn't very effective, shit gets intense.
Also, watched two episodes of Nisekoi. It's cute so far. I'm also a sucker for pretty art and this has plenty of that. Exhibit A. Exhibit B.
No Game No Life - Why the hell are you touching me, asshole? Please. I liked it and I want more. I want to touch it in the Super Healthy Space. Hopefully they'll come through with a second season.
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya - Both seasons, in the linear order I saw suggested on MAL. Season 1 was a great show. An enjoyable premise, with fun characters, and some interesting situations. They should have made the second to last episode the season finale though, since the actual final episode wasn't as good. Season 2 on the other hand was a dumpster fire of bullshit; a complete waste of time. Well, except for the first episode of season 2, that one was pretty good, then it was bullshit for 8 episodes and a waste of time for the 5 episodes after that. So, not a complete waste of time, if the one good episode negates that. Character-wise, Haruhi just became completely unlikable in Season 2.
Azumanga Daioh - The first 6 episodes. I watched Nichijou a few months ago and these two shows feel extremely similar, which is in no way a bad thing. I liked Nichijou, so for now I can only assume I'm going to like the rest of Azumanga Daioh.
