Pretty excited for Summer! 'Tis the season for hot doodz and potential gayness!

Guess I'll repost this here since I just posted it.

Bakumatsu Rock 1

Defeat the tyranny of Idol Culture with the power of Rock and mild nudity!!! This seems like a fun show, all the ridiculous designs and light hearted stuff characters really added to it. The part about people winning concert tickets through buying stuff was spot on too. The CG was pretty bad though, worse than Beck even. I wish music anime would go rotoscope over CG for instrument close ups. Also Katsura is a total cutie, need to see the shot of him in the ED without the foreground shot!

Is, is this the 90's!?

The perfect way to start Summer OT.

Free Eternal Summer 1

The water animation is great! Bunch of service for those who like tight muscle. OLDCODEX still awesome, and that Ending is still bananas.

Free! Eternal Summer Episode 1

Well that was interesting. I may have just watched only the OP an ED but they were good. Not the worst I've seen; however, certainly not the best. Also the water animation looks really smooth like they have a budget compared to some shows. I won't be continuing this series though. Not the best webm to show it, but still that water looks nice.

Rail Wars gonna be the sht
I'll give it a shot, along with generic Xebec mecha(?) Argevellon.

Will wait on Glasslip impressions, and I might watch Tokyo Ghoul. Read some of the manga and it didn't really hook me.

Just realized I'm going to be watching 6 shows on Saturdays. At least Sailor Moon isn't weekly and I don't care much about Captain Earth right now.

Depends on what you're looking for from it. If you're looking for an action oriented anime you wont find it in Ergo Proxy. I say give it at least to episode 11. I think that episode gives a clear understanding of what Ergo Proxy is trying to do.
I'll give it a shot. That's been my biggest problem so far, is not knowing what exactly it's trying to do or where it's going. It started off well enough but started to get dull once Vincent left the city. I wasn't looking for something like E7 when I started watching Ergo Proxy. EP was just something I had been curious about for a little while since it reminded me of Texhnolyze a bit for some reason.

I was actually about to delete a bunch of posts in the other thread and reprimand people for image spamming. Then I realized it was really just a cry for help because it needed to be closed. Lolz.

You posted the wrong idol.
I believe you'll find I posted the correct idol

I guess I'm watching Nozaki-kun and Dandy s2 this season? And whatever else pops up on Crunchy that I want to look at I guess. Still gotta catch up on other stuff though.

Atelier Escha & Logy - Alchemists of the Dusk Sky 1-12

I enjoyed the series overall. Though I admit they never really got the whole Alchemy feel of the series down, felt more like a SoL thing. Really just makes me want to play the game even more.

Space Dandy 1-13 END

The people here who were saying that the back half of the show is where it hits its stride were completely dead on. But with that being said, most of the first half till 9 is rough as hell. Barring the great zombie episode, the vibrant playfulness of the overall production is forced to work with these pedestrian takes on various tried and true premises. Its got the tag along kid road trip, the dog episode, the two feuding sides that are more similar than they realize, the monster disguised as a human, and each of these were executed in such a by the numbers fashion that came across as a waste of the talent involved. The main things that were carrying me along for the ride were the playful attitudes of its cast, the consistently high production values, and the hope that the wait would be worth it.

And boy was it worth it.

From episode 9 and on, it was clear to me that things were switching gears towards the more experimental both in premise and visual style. They started playing up the endless potential of an unshackled sci-fi universe even more, like with the library planet in episode 11 or the super abstract planet inhabited by sentient plants. Even the writing for the less experimental ones like the Groundhog's day episode or the Chameleonian episode were way more on point in execution, even managing to succeed in the more sentimental moments. And the whole thing ends fantastically with a huge bang that left me very excited for the S2 premiere this weekend.

It may have been spotty initially, but the highs of the back half are so great. I really hope S2 can continue off of it from the get-go.

Necessary Rankings:
13 > 4 > 12 > 9 > 10 > 11 > 8 > 5 > 2 > 7 > 6 > 1 >>> 3

Lol, didn't even notice there's a P4G anime coming out.

So I guess all there is for me this season is Dandy and Nozaki-kun. May try out that Urobutcher series just because, but other than that this should be enough until fall.

I watched the first episode of Sabegebu! A few days ago and thought showed some nice potential and made me want to try Airsoft.
