Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse Episode 1Show
This is so gonna blow Rinne no Lagrange out of the water.
Good CG, what I expect from this series.
Not as good to begin with storywise but I hope this picks up. This might have another story from the VN so might as well touch up on that.

"When the BETA first arrived in Japan in 1998, 36 million people were dead within a week. By 2001, the world population has been reduced to 1 billion people, and most of Europe and central Asia have been wiped out. The Soviet Union, though, is still around, operating out of Alaska. The world on brink of destruction. Luckily, they able to hold out for 33 years later but situation not much better."

I won't drop this. Might recommend to others who are mecha fans.

I guess people here aren't as excited for this than the other series.

And the little "play" that they pulled in public was funny too x3x3 So far, I think my fav will be Satsuki<3 I have an obvious feeling that she's going to lose though -.-" Rawr. Oh, and that beginning surprised me O.o What was going on there...?

"Why are you coupling me with him -_-"

I could somehow imagine some ISML members saying that line! X)

Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru! - Episode 1Show
Your typical harem plot with girls acting illogically, weak/useless/perverted MC-kun, and a questionable premise. Still, I found it oddly entertaining watching the girls, each of whom strictly represent one a popular archetype, interact with MC-kun. While the incestuous aspect of the show is a bit kimochi warui, the cute character designs do make up for it slightly.
Censoring was expected; the use of a black shadow instead of a beam of light in some scenes made it bearable.
Overall, the episode was average and what you'd expect from a typical harem.

Binbo-gami ga! ep1Show
What a funny show that was. I could make out HanaKana's voice instantly, but it's refreshing to hear her pulling off all sorts of antics in this kind of role she doesn't seem to normally get. Everything else are just random and funny. Definitely a keeper.

NakaImo Ep. 1Show
Uwah, looks like some other confusing, surprise ending harem anime. .__." (Maybe like MashiPhony or Akane-iro or something). So wow, this is just going to be a big "Who is the Imouto?" guessing fiasco o-o" Well, I'll keep up with it for now.

After a few scanning:
Jinrui Suitai Ep. 1Show
Nah, it's a lol landmine. I may watch now.
Hold(acceptable).
Uta-Koi Ep. 1Show
But this is not interesting.
Landmine.
Kimi no Iru Machi OAD 2Show
Haruto has to think over his relationship with Yuzuki... again. He's afraid of hurting her again.
It's good that they finally meet, with misunderstanding wiped out.

It seems that there is crossover during this OAD.
Koi-Choco Ep. 1Show
The main part is giving out the main route...
What is that at the beginning and the end?
And censor light, duh.
Accept.
Natsuyuki Randezvous Ep. 1Show
Given these facts that:
- Aired as noitaminA.
- One of the main charas is a ghost.
This is NOT Anohana and it steps on my berserk trigger.
Resisted.

Just finished watching Sword Art Online ep 1 and I have to say that along with Champione, it's the most interesting this season.
SpoilerShow
Seems really cruel to lock up 10,000 people in a virtual world. I wonder how they keep their physical bodies alive in the real world?? Do they all have to go to a hospital to be taken care of?? Also, the girl looks like she'll probably be in ISML 2013. Can't wait to see her show up in the next episodes.
So far "Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai" and "Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru!" are okay, but nothing else has really caught my interest so far.

Sword Art Online Ep. 1Show
Man, my expectations were definitely met. Actually, this was higher than my expectations. Then again, I wasn't really sure what this was going to exactly be about. But the "consequences" in this game and the "stakes" are definitely higher. (I'd probably die in like 3 minutes of being in that game...) And man, seeing Kirito and Klein leave each other made me all sad :[ I think this is definitely going to be one of the better animes of this season. Yay!<3
Plus at least the protagonist of this series isn't lame.

My answer as to how it works (spoilerish indeed risk yourself) S…Show
The game uses a helmet that can send and receive brainwaves in order to shut down some of your physical movement in the real world and immerse yourself into the game which includes the 5 senses.

The lead programmer apparently decided to troll the ten-thousand players by excluding a "log-out" button, trapping their consciousnesses in the game. To make things worse, if anyone tries to force the helmet off or the helmet is left unplugged for more than two hours, or gets tampered with and such, it will fry the brain of the player. And, of course, if the player dies in the game, their brain will get fried as well. The programmer tells them that they need to have at least one person make it to the top floor of the world and beat the boss in order to free everyone. As of where the main duration of this story is, they only have a few more floors to go, and they've been going for 2 years, with only 6000 players left.

This is funny lol. Another nice slice-of-life along with Tari Tari~ And so next time, 3 people switch bodies. And they still don't know how to get back to normal. There's too many factors...and lol at the glasses girl who walked in on Taichi in Iori's body lol. And lol, i wonder what Himeko told Iori to make her react that way? XD And Himeko's question to Taichi was hilarious too. XDXD Looking forward to this~<3
