Chuunibyou 5Show
The all the familiar plot of "one member is a baka and needs help to pass" scenario
Very smart for the mc to keep rikka motivated in studying so that she do well on her test, though at a cost of his own image.
Some swimsuit service in between when cleaning the pool turned into a clash between Mori Summer and middle school kid (dont remember her name at the top my head)
It's a fairly nice episode, balanced.

Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka? Of The Dead ep. 11 (OAV)Show
Flea market day at Ayumu's school, with Orito challenging Haruna to see who makes the biggest profit. Haruna eventually wins when the other busty girls help her out, as well as offer Orito Seraphim's blouse/negligee--at the cost of all his profit. (LOL @ Orito selling H-doujins, though. :lol:)

Later, Ayumu accidentally drinks an invisibility potion and Haruna is initially not pleased...until she finds out that a Philosopher's Stone of hers is missing. Ayumu immediately makes use of his condition the next day in order to find Haruna's Philosopher's Stone. And he searches among the girls during their physical examination day... But after getting into a few perverted situations without anyone seeing, Sarasvati manages to spot Ayumu (despite his invisibility--must be her vampire ninja abilities) and even gets a good butt-grope in. :lol: Ayumu manages to explain the situation to Sarasvati and she offers to help out.

And then Ayumu's invisibility starts to wear off...but he's lucky to have an understanding girl like Taeko. Ayumu finds out that Taeko has Haruna's Philosopher's Stone and retrieves it from her. Turns out that it wasn't necessary, as Taeko had the fake Philosopher's Stone (sold to her by Haruna the previous day) and the real one was at Ayumu's house all along. Even with that matter resolved, Ayumu later drinks a potion that gives him X-Ray vision...LOL, the hijinks just pile up. (Though it's still up in the air whether they can recover Haruna's mana from Chris.)
Hayate no Gotoku: Can't Take My Eyes Off You ep. 5Show
Yukiji Katsura, Sonia Shaflnarz and Ruri Tsugumi--three big eaters who can run into debt faster than you can say "Leeroy Jenkins"...and Hayate gets stuck with them in a family restaurant. :lol: Well, at least more Hinagiku appearances is good. :bigsmile:

Nagi's grandfather is also back, and gives some background info regarding Nagi's father after some "persuasion" by Maria. But still no definitive proof of whether Ruri really is Nagi's sister.
"Rip and Tear. Rip and tear until it's done."

PSYCHO-PASS - Episode 3Show
Episode was decent. A nice amount of action, interesting content, and not much Akane.
Inspector Ginoza reactions when Akane was talking with him definitely raise suspicions. I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up turning on everyone later on or just ends up dying because of his views on the whole Inspector-Enforcer system.

Damn it, they killed the granny AGAIN >:[ My word, I was thinking "yay this series isn't going to kill the nice old lady!" Until the last second and i was like "=-= seriously?" Damn. Anyway, I wonder who it was that shot her. I don't think it would be the Princess, maybe someone trying to frame her? Anyway, looking forward to more. (Judallll)

Pretty much a typical shoujo episode, so it was neither good or bad, imo.

Chu-2 Koi Ep. 5Show
One of Rikka's weaknesses is maths. She's not so willing to study though.
It takes a lot of effort for Yuuta to get her up, that he thinks of himself being worse in next test - until it turns out to be too hard overall.
The last scene... Looks like Rikka is "defeated" (in Keima Katsuragi's style).
Medaka Box S2 Ep. 4Show
Mainly on Medaka VS Takachiho "super reflex".
It's a barely victory.
But this is not the last guy she needs to beat.

Isn't it that guy who tried kidnapping all of the women in the village? I mean, he's the most likely candidate, seeing as he seems to want to go to war for whatever reason rather than settle things peacefully like the Princess wants. ^^;

Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! - Episode 4Show
Shinka's true colours are finally revealed. It's not like this was unexpected though; it was already obvious that she had her own motivation for joining the group which definitely didn't include getting closer to Yuuta. Regardless of this, I still think she's the best character of the series. I just hope she doesn't go towards the yandere route.

Tempest 5Show
Things are moving along quite quickly.
A battle between Samon's men and our two heroes at an aquarium- but they were able to escape by baiting Samon's people into a trap.
Something more devious is that Samon also predicted some of Hakase's moves and planned accordingly to stop her from disrupting the rituals-
Possibly negating the power of that special talisman.
Theory that may be a major spoilerShow
During Yoshinos flashback when he was at the aquarium on a date with Aika, I noticed she speaks very much like a mage on the same lines as Hakase.
Perhaps, she is one of them and also foresaw what was going to happen, thus a chain of events happened that led to her early dismissal in life?

That's what I was thinking too, but I wasn't sure if they'd try to pull a twist move on us or something o-o Too bad he's still alive >-> rawr! Poor Granny though, everyone is going to be devastated (and angry for sure...)

Shinsekai Yori 6Show
Saki was able to break free of the hypnosis thanks to the library's teachings and used it to help Satoru regain his cantus- without limitations of psychological restrictions.
The "war" against the foreign qwuerats continues...and Satoru is starting to get really fatigue from the continuous waves.
What sort of fate awaits Saki and Satoru?

*note*:
series anticipation dropping, but far from being dropped- for now

Jormungand - Episode 15Show
R.I.P. Renato... ):
Although R's death was inevitable, it still carried a bit of a shock value. It was frightening to see Koko go slightly insane, and makes me wonder what will happen if, in the future, she ends up losing more of her men.

Shin Sekai Yori - Episode 5Show
oh gawd... dat change in artwork. ):
When even someone like me notices the decrease in quality, something's definitely wrong.
The content of the episode didn't fare too well either; too much running and not enough plot development.
Overall, it was quite a poor episode, imo.

SAO Ep. 18Show
Leafa is cute :3 But I seem to like Leafa > Sugu, which is a bit strange since they're the same person O.o" Maybe it's because I don't tend to think Leafa is related to Kirito, while Sugu is actively acting as his "sister" (cousin). And Asuna finally knows the password out of there! But if she leaves, how will Kirito find her..? And who was following Kirito and Leafa?
