Definately watching:

Hayate no Gotoku! HEAVEN IS A PLACE ON EARTH - any HnG is a must watch
Kami-sama no Memo-chou - Like Gosick, except NEET detective sounds cooler. Also, I like the singer thats singing the OP - Choucho of Nico Nico Douga
Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu Ni! - Always awesome, there's a reason it reigns in the light novel department in Japan

Probably watching:

Dantalion no Shoka - been into demons recently, and demons in books sounds cool
Nurarihyon no Mago 2 - same as above, without the books
Usagi Drop - enjoyed the manga, so why not the anime?

Might try:

Ro-Kyu-Bu! - Kind of bundled with Kamimemo, so might as well try it
Mayo Chiki! - Cross-dressing girl butler? Hmm...

Ro-Kyu-Bu! Ep. 1
SpoilerShow
loli...? Anyways. xD it looks pretty cute I guess. Seems kind of funny though considering they look like they're 5 ._." Haven't really gotten a good grasp on the main girl character yet, so i'll wait a bit for that. Seems unlikely that little elementary school boys would have the guts to stand up to a high school dude, let alone little boys care about the girl's basketball team, but whatever. Anime is always kinda far-fetched anyways.

First episode of Ro-Kyu-Bu! was kinda meh.
- The direction of the first episode felt very generic.
- Characters were as if they were generated from a cookie-cutter template and worse is they look almost alike!
- Art was too sugary for my tastes (what's with the overly sparkly bright color scheme!).
- The "costume appeal" attempt had me facepalming (was too pointless when viewed in context of the reason for having the training)
- Hanazawa Kana's voice felt so out of place compared to the rest.

If the revelation in the second episode isn't intriguing enough, I'm considering dropping this series.
Supporting:
  • Bakemonogatari: Oshino Shinobu ♦ Sengoku Nadeko ♦ Senjōgahara Hitagi
  • K-On!: Akiyama Mio ♦ Nakano Azusa ♦ Hirasawa Yui
  • Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai: Kashiwazaki Sena
  • Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?: Eucliwood Hellscythe
  • Haiyore! Nyaruko-san: Nyarlathotep
  • Kyōkai no Kanata: Kuriyama Mirai
  • Hyōka: Chitanda Eru
  • Mondaiji: Kurousagi

Blood-C Episode 1 was meh

I don't think it is as good as Blood +
I'm not used to Saya wearing glasses and having pigtails
Nana Mizuki is good probably better than Eri Kitamura

after watching ep 1...
Sacred SevenShow
Sacred Seven looks like a promising series to follow. Futuristic vehicles and device with twisted form of monstrous creature. Artwork looks cool and the story contains an interesting plot. The title refers to seven dark-stones (such as : Amethyst,Ruby,Topaz,Sapphire,etc)that give power for further information , read the summary
