First episode of Nurarihyon S2 serves to explain a few things that was untouched in the first season. Even then, it's still as fun to watch as ever. And the preview for the 2nd episode seems to indicate that more exciting stuff is in store for us.

Sacred Seven Ep. 1Show
Lots of guys can see Geass, Star Driver, Precure, Megaman, and a lot.
BTW in real life a "Honda Motocompo 50" can be found, small as the bike of Aruma.
Blade is a western claymore mine.
Utapri is an idol show for women.
These two are dropped powerfully.

Well, the size of the Honda Motocompo 50 has already been shown in You're Under Arrest. But still, what nostalgia to see this bike again in an anime after so long.

First episode of Sacred Seven got off to a decently good start. Still can't beat the first impression from Star Driver though.

Finished watching Yuruyuri ep1. It looks funny, I absolutely adore Kyouko already *.* Art is nice with all these soft colors but characters look a bit alike much to my disappointment. The OP is horribly catchy, I can't get it out of my head xD

Aw :) that was really sweet. I liked that old lady. I feel bad for Reiko, thinking that she finally made a human friend. And poor little cup-guy :( He was cute.

Decided to check out Blade while waiting for [email protected] and BakaTest season 2 (subs should appear after Thursday...probably sooner for BakaTest).

While there were no scenes of Blade killing "sparkle-vamps," I am intrigued enough to wonder what the heck Deacon Frost is doing in Japan. And if the series fits anywhere in the timeline of the movie trilogy...
"Rip and Tear. Rip and tear until it's done."

Yuruyuri looks like... a perfect yuri mine.

And, Tsurara(Yuki-onna) takes the adjacent place in staff...

Natsume Yuujinchou San 1:
Excellent as usual. You know a show is special when it can make you sympathize with a teacup.

Kamisama Dolls 1:
Good start. I didn't pay much attention to the promo materials so I was surprised that the show is so quick-paced. It's only the first episode and they've already set up some major plot points and questions to be answered. Looking forward to this one. Also, the OP is my current favourite for the season.

Mawaru Penguindrum 1:
What can I say about Penguindrum? I went in with no particular expectations and yet somehow, it exceeded them anyway.
SpoilerShow
- The visual design is amazing. They really know how to use colour to set a scene.
- Love the minimalist feel of the OP and eyecatch/transitions. Channeling Durarara a bit with the simplified background people.
- Dat transformation scene.
- Lol incest already in episode 1. Ikuhara outdoes himself once again.
- Penguin no. 3 for ISML 2012
Image
I'm hooked. With that said, I have absolutely no idea what happened. Gonna have to wait for subs before making heads or tails of the story (though I doubt I'll be any less confused).
