Little Buster 1Show
My initial impression of this series is similar to that of Majikoi minus the harem, which isn't a good sign. There are some comedic relief and such and the character design all seem solid individually goes. But as far as how this episode went in terms of story, progress and execution- they will need to show me more.

While some anime takes time to blossom- so I'm not counting it out yet: this episode failed to hook, line and sinker- when the key fanbase were already divided on having JC animate Little Busters over KyoAni.
P.S.- best girl is Sasami-sama~

Ohmyword i don't even know what to say. Oh my freaking god.


*major spoilers ahead stop now if you havent watched it :<*


...
Okay, first of all, I knew that Heathcliff was suspicious, but I didn't think that he'd be Kayaba Akihiko. And when Kirito was apologizing and thanking the other members, my heart was already breaking. I did not expect Asuna to cover for Kirito last minute and actually die for him. I did see Kirito killing off Kayaba though, and thank the heavens he did (though I feel as if Kayaba admitted defeat at the end even though he could have easily avoided Kirito's last attack--probably from half admiration and half disbelief). And when Kirito started crying when he was talking to Asuna again---oh my god my heart broke in half and I started tearing up because dshfaslkfdajsfksjf D: D: D:
And at the very end we see Kirito actually wake up in the real world with his skinny, frail body and his lengthened hair. And he's searching for Asuna...

K ep.1Show
It's hard to say whether the food-stealer is actually a crazy murderous king.
Lots of action though.
And look-alikes (or at least characters that reminded me of other characters from other anime)
There was a Shizuo, a Kanda, either Hikaru/Kaoru, and an Illya
Sukitte Iinayo~ Ep 1Show
That was cute. I've already read some of the manga, so nothing was a big surprise to me. I preferred the art in the manga, but it's fun to watch things animated, so i'll definitely keep on watching

Sword Art 14Show
omg omg!
I been- I pretty much expected everything from who the commander was and how the battle will turn out,
but...the timing of it was completely unexpected (maybe because I didnt read the novel- who knows)
I think they executed this episode perfectly....

umm...what else to say...

YUI-CHAN HNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGG!!

Chu-2 Koi Ep. 1Show
Here comes Yuuta, ex-chu-2. He feels shame on recalling that.
There is Rikka, a heavy chu-2, but also too cute.
2 of 4 girls singing ED have appeared so far.

For some reason Yuuta looks like Houtarou, a bit.
There are some short clips, as it seems. Accepted.
Tonari no Kaibutsu Kun Ep. 1Show
Do all shoujo works have kiss at 1st episode this season?
But watching Shizuku X Haru doesn't feel bad.
May follow.
Zetsuen no Tempest Ep. 1Show
It's not Guilty Crown, nor noitaminA, but with same director.
The world is gonna scrapped and some guys with magic are trying to avert that.
Hakaze is a badass though.
Hold.

Zetsuen no Tempest- Ep.1Show
Seems pretty cool with Shakespeare allusions and stuff.
Fuwa seems a bit crazy but cool at the same time. I wonder if Mashiro will learn magic too. Hakaze seems like a badass xD

The members are back. But 3rd-grade pair will have a trip away.
Yuno wants to play a senior role, but fails...
K Ep. 1Show
There are guys with superpower.
It's ridiculous to have guys attacking you on first glance, right?
But is Yashiro really hidden badass?
And why do you blush towards a guy?
May reject if switch hits.
Chu-2 Koi Lite 1Show
At this time Rikka is already following Yuuta.

Zetsuen no Tempest - Episode 1Show
A really good start to one of my most anticipated series of the Fall 2012 season.
The introduction to the story is done really well and gave viewers a lot of information.
I really think the duo of Mahiro and Yoshino will be interesting to watch, especially since they're linked together by Aika and her "death" (I feel there's more to it than her just getting killed by someone). Can't wait for the next episode.

Oh my, we got a kiss in episode 1, and we got a confession in episode 2~ I'm rooting for you, Shizuku! I wonder if we'll have any interaction between the two new characters (Souhei and Natsume). Looking forward to more~

Kamisama Haijimemashita - Episode 1Show
It's kinda like Inu x Boku SS, with a less-appealing coupling in Nanami and Tomoe; Ririchiyo x Soushi is superior by far. That said, it's an interesting start. Can't say I really like it but I'll give it a few more episodes.

Sakurasou 1Show
It was very interesting. In fact, the first episode was surprisingly much more pleasant than most introductory episode of similar genre.
Both Mashiro and Nanami seem to be very interesting characters and the mc reminds me of the protag in BakaTest.
Likewise for animes of this genre, quality will come down to story/relationship progression and character development, execution and ability to tie up loose ends

The characters alone seems to make this worth watching thus far.

and fun fact: the kitten is named: Hikari

Busou Shinki Ep. 1Show
Looks like they have a duel field.
These little robot girls are nice... and a 4th one is joining.
May accept.
Oni-Ai Ep. 1Show
Looks like Akiko has that syndrome - blood related brother and sister will become lustful toward each other, if having been splitted up for a long time.
However, there are already 3 other girls around Akito. It's a challenge.
May accept.
Say, "I love you" Ep. 1Show
Yet another shoujo work? Or not?
The 3rd title with kiss at 1st episode.
Hold.
SAO Ep. 14Show
And finally Kirito points out Heathcliff is the GM. He's going dust to dust with that, and tell others to survive.
However, his moves are all known and Asuna takes a critical hit... He's over anger and deals a double KO.
But it seems that they are not dead...
Kazuto "Kirito" is awake, skinny, and still looking for Asuna.

Maybe he can only succeed in next chapter.
Chu-2 Koi Lite 2Show
How Rikka starts to use bandages and eye patch, and how she ends in.
TLR Darkness Ep. 1Show
Even the AT-X version is censored.
While Momo is planning a harem project (of course Rito is the lead), Yami may have to fight again...

Girls und Panzer ep. 1Show
The opening scenes of this first episode reminded me of a typical session of World of Tanks--a team vs team battle involving the main characters and another team. But after a tense moment where the main characters' tank is about to take a hit, the scene then changes to an earlier point in time. (Looks like the show is following the "how we got here" narrative style of Infinite Stratos.)

Basically, the main character Miho Nishizumi hates tanks, and by extension, the art/sport of tank battles ("Sensha-do") because of a traumatic past experience. She wants to live a normal high school life with newfound friends Hana Isuzu and Saori Takebe, but that changes when the school suddenly decides to revive Sensha-do. Miho refuses to join at first, but eventually relents after seeing her friends stand up to the student council for her choice not to take up Sensha-do (despite being threatened with expulsion).

Well, without spoiling any more, it's an intriguing yet interesting start to a series that's guaranteed to be as widgety as Upotte!!--with a bit of les yay like the girls of Saki. (I think.) ;)

P.S.: First dibs on Hana! Tall, dark, bishoujo...and she has the same birthday as me! :P
P.P.S.: Unfortunately, the subs I watched have a bad habit of inserting gratuitous German... While I do understand some of the German words, I'll need better (read: normal) subs than that.

Crud. Well, time to wait for those DVDs/Blu-Ray discs of TLR: Darkness!

Sukitte Ii na yo. - Episode 1Show
So far, it's pretty much your typical story: popular guy falls in love with anti-social girl.
I haven't read the manga, but I'm assuming the future episodes will tell of their struggles in terms of how the rest of society (e.g. peers, friends, etc.) look at them. A kiss in the first episode was quite surprising though, given it usually takes forever for it to happen in typical shoujo romances.

Oh, and that stalker was creepy. Who knows what he would've done if Mei didn't call Yamato?

The "first episode kiss" is hardly in short supply this season... ^^;
