I've been slowly going through a trippy anime called Trapeze (Kuuchuu Buranko). It's really out there. Also watching Kill la Kill, Kanon (2006), Hidamari Sketchx365, Nisekoi, Seitokai no Ichizon, and Tonari no Seki-kun.
Kill la Kill is mindless fun (Trigger is not saving anime), but Nisekoi is freaking hilarious (Shaft always does great shows imo)
Kill la Kill, IMO, would be infinitely better if they actually toned it down a bit. I think 'clever action' could score them way more points that over-the-top action. But yeah, it's been fun. The animation always gives you something to look at.
I liked Nisekoi (the manga) till it felt kinda repetitive. I'm gonna wait on it for a bit to get some more chapters.
I think Kill la Kill's issue is that it's tone is getting in its own way. Gurren Lagann pulled off over the top with a silly story and maintained a silly tone throughout while Kill la Kill carries a more serious tone with its insane story. Last show to do that I saw, I ended up nearly dropping (Shingeki no Kyojin).
As for Nisekoi, I've heard that complaint with the manga a lot. Honestly, if Shaft adapts it fully, filler and all, I'll be very very happy. Shaft animation is always fun to watch and Nisekoi is the perfect fit for a long running adaption for them.
I figured the issue with Kill la Kill was that it really doesn't have the budget to pull off the level of action a show like it calls for, falling back on the tried and true ways of cutting corners and costs like reusing animation clips, recap episodes, talking heads, still shots of location exteriors, action that occurs just off screen, etc., but because there's so much going on that it can be hard to notice if you're not really looking for it (seriously, this show moves three times faster than a regular anime; and to the fifth power compared to a shonen). Of course its also a big ass love letter to anime and other pop culture references (hell the current ending is one to Urusei Yatsura, never mind all the sight gags).
As for Kyojin, the manga's janky artstyle really helped it out a lot.
And on that note: Kill la Kill episode 19:
"Hey guys, we've just developed this awesome new weapon that can defeat a cover and safely extract the human in one sho-oh wait, the main character is back. Nevermind."
Log Horizon episodes 13/14:
Damn you Hulu!!!!
Taking a break from the MMOEconomics to start giving out explanations (and a penalty to defeats outside of "Go back to Start").
Martian Successor Nadesico:
What the hell is going on with you Hulu!?
Two might as well be filler episodes. At least I got to the cyberspace one. After that though, I think only one more episode made it into SRWW.
Space Dandy: Lol, dat fridge. Also, dat doggie.
Blue Exorcist: Decided to give this the three episode test, just to make sure I'm not judging a book by its cover. So far this is all I have to write about because I can't seem to recall any of it other than a feeling of thorough mediocrity and boredom.
Edit: Hulu still works in Firefox, carry on. (Not-quite Double Edit: Kinda....)
