Finished Sword Art Online...and perhaps I am in the minority, but I LOVED the first part and liked the second part...a lot....
Then it sounds like Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei would be right up your alley.
Some news for any mechheads here: A new J9 series is in the works. Not much info right now though, but I'll give it a chance when it comes along.
Cool beans. Though it sounds like the Space Car won't be returning, at least it'll be anime original. I mean, it can't be any worse than the dozen or so shitty LNs getting equally shitty animes every six months.
Anyways, I've finished up Hyouka, now I have no idea what's going to be replace that, but I somehow suspect it'll be another dull slice of life comedy. Honestly though, the show was fine until the school festival ended and then it was just "Oh, I bet you can figure this one out." and then the main character does.
Currently up to episode 4 of Madoka Magica and now the real deconstruction can begin.
Finished the first season of Log Horizon. Suddenly a new challenger approaches. Outside of being vague, cryptic, deceitful, and smuggling two watermelons in her shirt, Evil-not-Spice & Wolf's-Holo dumped a bunch of 'to be covered in Season 2' plot hooks, a villains' proposition using Zapp Branigan style bargaining skills, and nothing else. Ehh, it was good enough to follow through so bring on the Second Season. Not sure what to replace this with. Ehh, it's been awhile since I've watched a hilariously awful anime, maybe I should start up Disk Wars: Avengers. Actually, I should probably pick something that's recent yet finished and can be watched twice a night. Hmm...
Episode 32 of Utena, would I be spoilering it for anyone when I say that the 'nice car' seems to be powered by forbidden sex making. Also, banging your not-blood sibling, totally legit since 1996. Also also, banging your actually-blood sibling, totally legit since 1996.
Finished Season 1 of FMP while I'm at it. Now at least I know why the animations are as janky as they are in Z3-1. On the plus side, they're still better than the Code Geass R2 Knights animation, those were just disgraceful. Oh and outside of Gauron, Sousuke, Mao's shit-faced drunkenness, the occasional mecha fight, and the occasional Tessa troll (where she's suddenly "Where's the moe~desu~kawaii now, bitch!?"), the show would be generic LN trash. That said, I'm less amazed at how much I acutally remembered about this show, than I am at the fact that there really wasn't all that much to remember to begin with. Just the plane hijacking (which I missed the first time), the A21 arc, the Ubeckybecky-beckastan/Sousuke backstory arc featuring team Red Shirt generics, and the finale/Sub Hijacking arc. The only thing I forgot was that the Grey-haired ponytail commander dude didn't die this season. Also was amusing to see how much more attention was given to one of the two good guy casualties during the Sub Hijacking arc for SRWW. Anyways, on to FFUMOFU.
