Moderate HaruhiistListening to Hanazawa Kana ham it up as a self-centered bitchy rich girl with secret abandonment and loneliness issues is always an experience.

I LOVE the performances of the two main girls. One of the best things about it.

I'd call it "If Tex Avery Was Japanese".
I was watching this purely for Hana Kanazawa (and that cute ensemble of chinese calendar familiars!) but now I can add Momou to the list of things to look out for! His masochism is hilarious.
I wouldn't count on Mamou reappearing soon if this truly is a one-cour show. And to me, the zodiac animals don't matter. They were on-screen for two minutes and received no exposition.
Well, I'll count them in as one-episode wonders or something.
ALL ABOARD!I loved Momou's expression when he changed back to human form. "FUCK MY LIFE!" indeed.
Momou in general is win. He's a cutie.
Binbougami ga 5: The best one so far in my opinion. Momo and Bobby make a surprisingly good comedic duo.
I find it hilarious how this is only a one-cour show and Ichiko spends one sixth of it as a little kid! Not the kind of story I'd expect to be a two-parter.

Técnico ElectromecánicoYeah, let's just wait and see how it ends. I find that because this is a comedic show the Cliff Hanger at the end of the episode loses its power.
Shop OwnerI think this is less a comedy and more a dramedy, actually.
Moderate HaruhiistIt's a comedy with drama thrown in every so often — see Nadeshiko's arc, or heck the one that comes immediately after Ranmaru's. It's pretty like Gintama in that regard.

赤鳥^I mean, I guess so, but most of the drama comes from the two ten-second segments per episode where Ichiko contemplates the possibility of maybe acting like a decent human being and then decides not to. Don't get me wrong, I like her well enough, and it's good that her abandonment issues aren't being solved in one magical swoop (though I wouldn't argue with some healing sex between Ichiko and Momiji, truth be told...). Still, she'd better get her act together.
Moderate HaruhiistI'm not sure that we have the episodes for it though. A good deal of Ichiko's issues also stem from being afraid of anyone getting close to her, which only gets revealed after Ranmaru's story.

Técnico ElectromecánicoExactly, because the source of almost all the drama in this show is Ichiko, the Cliff Hanger lost its power. It was not a bad Cliff Hanger and the preview for the next episode doesn't ruin it, so if this where a more serious series then it will be really effective. Also Nadeshiko Leaning on the Fourth Wall was fun.

Scrubs is mostly comedy with drama thrown in, for example. Most half-hour dramedies are comedies first. It's hour long tv shows in the US that have more drama than comedy.
I think a supernatural rural fantasy about a lazy god of misfortune pulling out random devices that appear to be from different stories all together can't be anything BUT a comedy.
Shop OwnerFirst. Rural? how? Second. Momiji is an instigator of change in Sakura's life. The show is about Sakura first and foremost.
Moderate HaruhiistI think someone is mixing up the setting with Hyouka, the latter of which IS set in a relatively rural town. :P Indeed, Momiji is an instigator of change. If she had been any less violent and actually much nicer, and Ichiko a guy, Momiji might have even been considered a Manic Pixie Dreamgirl.

Lemme guess. No episode this week.
Actually, seems there was...
Dem sites better git to it, then! First the upload is late, and now that it's online, the video is slanted!

Técnico ElectromecánicoJust saw it. The reason for her depresion was just a Bait and Switch :| And Nadeshiko that is why you don't mock the staff.
