I finished Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun

High school student Chiyo Sakura has a crush on schoolmate Umetarō Nozaki, but when she confesses her love to him, he mistakes her for a fan and gives her an autograph. When she says that she always wants to be with him, he invites her to his house and has her help on some drawings. Chiyo discovers that Nozaki is actually a renowned shōjo manga artist named Sakiko Yumeno. She then agrees to be his assistant in order to get closer to him. As they work on his manga Let's Fall in Love (恋しよっ?, Koi Shiyo, Let's Have a Romance),[4][5] they encounter other schoolmates who assist them or serve as inspirations for characters in the stories.

It's a high school comedy. Quite funny but a bit disjointed. Almost borders on the sketch show format but pulls just enough plot threads to be satisfying. Executed pretty well, I enjoyed it.

--------------------------------------------------

Started Humanity Has Declined

Set in a post-apocalyptic world where the human civilization has regressed and humanity keeps decreasing in numbers. The story follows an unnamed girl who acts as a mediator between humanity and the "fairies" who are small elf-like creatures attracted by sweets and happy things, but also have the habit to cause trouble to her with their powers in their endless search for amusement.

Pretty unique series in tone. Reminds me of World Conquest Zvezda Plot a bit. Interesting scenarios and I have no idea where it's going.

EDIT: gave up on this, too quirky/obtuse.

Gave up on Humanity has declined, too obtuse.

Started Brynhilder in the Darkness, good so far.

Finished Brynhilder, I liked it but there wasn't enough backstory or explanation as to the lab or what the creatures were. It was however funny and decentely done overall.

Started Selector Infected Wixoss which is based on a popular card game. There is an odd plot thread involving a girl whose greatest wish is to marry....... her brother. Which is offputting at the moment. Otherwise seems solid if unspectacular.

Finished Selector Infected Wixoss 13 episodes.

Er... seems to end, on a cliffhanger which I presume is picked up on in the next series, Spread Wixoss but its not even availible here to buy in the UK.

Overall I think the series is pretty good if somewhat deep/heavy toned. Considering its based on a card game I thought the scripts were actually pretty good.

Just started this:

When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace

The story focuses on Senkō High School's Literature Club, whose five members; Jurai, Tomoyo, Hatoko, Sayumi, and Chifuyu, have all somehow developed superpowers. The superpowers have now become a part of their everyday lives as they battle against others wielding similar powers.

It's a school club comedy with light harem elements. It's pretty good so far, not hilarious but there were some leftfield LOL moments. Fun stuff.

Also reached the point in Naruto Shippuden after the awesome Pain fight/storyline and it's quite obvious that from then we are back to meaningless filler. The series is telling tales of what happened back when Naruto and co were kids. So it's like watching OG Naruto, oldschool.

I can't remember that, seems like ages ago.

How do you guys decide on what Anime to watch?

I usually go off any trailers that appear on DVDs which are usually the opening sequence - creditless. It's led me to bad and good anime. I think on Netflix I don't tend to finish series because a lot isn't dubbed or is incomplete with only series 1 or something. I think the only anime on there I watched all the way through was Hunter x Hunter (still incomplete on netflix) and The Seven Deadly Sins.

It was the episode after Kurapika learned that the leader of the Phantom Troupe was dead but he just faked his death.

I don't know how I decide which Anime to watch. I use to just watch Adult Swim and continue watching what interested me. I have some on Netflix but I can't really watch Subtitled anything unless I understand the language the characters are speaking.

I am struggling to finish the Fairy Tail Celestial drama arc.

This is one of my favourite series, probably no 2 after FMA Brotherhood, but this arc is terrible. It's so derivative it feels like soul-less filler. I hate it.

You should be using the first post of this thread to decide.

Finished season 1 of Kamisama Dolls

it doesn't feel like a complete season so the story is obviously continued in its sequel series, the catch is that it isn't released here yet.

So Kami are Gods in Japan, Shinto-ism? Here the gods are like well, dolls that people can control remotely. And there is this village with a dark past whose people can use them. It was pretty decent.

Evangelion 3.33............ wtf?

Someone help me here. I saw the first two movies and they were decent, fairly normal with a narrative I could follow. Movie 3 starts and I'm at a loss. Everything is weird, everything is different.

WTF is going on here? I haven't seen the OG series.

Where did Kaworu come from and how is he an Angel? Where did these spears come from? WTF is Lilith actually. WTF are the Angels anyway? What are the Evangelion, I thought they were human tech, but how did they then trigger the third impact and why/how do they bleed and go crazy and animalistic?

If Shinjis unit 1 is now powering the Wunder, why does unit 13 look exactly the same? So NERV (Shinji's dad) is trying to force evolution so humans become a merged consciousness so he can be with his wife again?
