HAHAHA GOOD TIMES
Looks less like GOSICK than expected. So that's good
World's biggest wannabeLooks good enough. I'll probably bite. too bad that the main character very much likely will be unable to pronounce his own name.
Too Good For YouOh look it's Ono Daisuke again. I'm getting kinda tired of hearing him in leading character roles.
Please be gentle with me.
Dark Herohow will they troll us this time
World's biggest wannabeThey will troll us by using their reputation for trolling, and reveal in the final episode that there has been absolutely no trolling. Seriously, though, the series seems to be a bot too straightforward for that sort of thing.
It's an adaptation of a light novel series, so unless there's trolling in the original story I don't think there will be trolling here. Unless Gainax plans to deviate from the story.
Gainax's reputation is overblown. They really don't do that sort of thing very often
Bring them all on.Aww. It looks subdued and paced and intelligent. I guess we'll always have Demonbane if i want to think about what would happened if Cthulhu invaded the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann universe. Anyways, i'll have to give the show a shot. Demons, anime and the 1920's apparently go together really well.

Looks like Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann was a sign of better times, and that Gainax might be moving away from their post-FLCL slump (or at least I'm hoping). I'm eager to see it just for the period trappings alone.

Always RightIt looks watchable.........thought can't really give any real opinions without watching an episode or two. It still looks like one of the better anime this season, along with Nurarihiyon and Baka Test...
"Every opinion that isn't mine is subjected to Your Mileage May Vary."
I actually read the first novel and found it to be pretty mediocre.
Lv. 3 Genasi WizardHmm... well, it's at least not as bizarre as suddenly doing an anime about Kindergarteners out of no where, but I'll try it.
The thing about making witty signature lines is that it first needs to actually be witty.
Reverse the Curse... did those credits just say they took on Baby, The Stars Shine Bright and Alice And The Pirates as wardrobe consultants? XD
Wh'joo lookin' at?I recall news of the show surfacing way back last year, when people mistaken it for ongoing work on Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt. It seemed Gainax was insistent on getting the look and feel of the setting right, even allowing international talent to jump in. While it's supposed to be set during the interbellum I can't help feeling the show has a Victorian vibe to it though. So I take the show was in production for more than a year? And has anyone been able to ID the English manor the show is set in?

HAHAHA GOOD TIMESA New promo is up.
Silence Is GoldenSeems beautiful. We need more foreign talents in Japanese animation. More interculturality and cross-polinization.
The Quiet One. No OTT. No unfunny. No squick. No crusades. Harmless and clean.
HAHAHA GOOD TIMESAnd the first episode is up!
Reverse the CurseWould you cut it the fuck out with the niconico? >_< One, not everyone reads kana and kanji and understands Japanese, and two, even those of us who do a bit don't necessarily have or want an account there. Can't you find a less bloody inconvenient site? ... I should go back to sleep.
HAHAHA GOOD TIMESI was just linking to the english simulcast...
Oooh, this actually looks interesting. I'll put it on my list of things I'll start watching quite soon.
Too Good For YouA hardsubbed rip of the Nico broadcast is already out on Tokyo Tosho (under the somewhat deceptive name "Nico-Raws"), so that should be one less reason for Furiko Maru to rage.
Please be gentle with me.
Things make people happyWell, that was pretty average. Decent premise and beautiful animation, but weird pacing and some badly framed shots (especially when destroying the dragon). Also I hate Dalian already. At least Huey is more interesting than Kujo...
,%,..@@@,.Þ%,.@G,.@@,.% / Playing with animals.
The Earth KingThat girl at the beginning looked a bit like Goddess!Madoka, IMO... But I'm just rambling. Looks like a more "mystical" Gosick. I'm strangely Ok with that.
Overseer of the Holy Grail WarGood start, but not excellent. Seems like more of an adventure of the week type thing at this point. I do like Huey though. For once, a protagonist that doesn't freak out in the face of the abnormal. Dalian is okay so far and some of her interactions with Huey were funny, but she has some disturbing shades of Index. Please dear god not another one.
