High School of the Dead is exactly what I thought it would be. Fanservice and zombies. Its both the best and the worst series ever made. If you like bloodbaths, zombies, and panty shots, this series is for you. If not, there really isn't much else to it.

I'm enjoying Amagami SS so far. Lots of interesting characters, Kaoru's got the best anime hair ever, and I'm really intrigued by the unique storytelling aspect. Maybe it'll come off as better than the Key anime route where the main dude just moves from one girl to the next and drops them on their butt when their arc ends >_>

This series was what I hoped it would be, glad it doesn't disappoint

I enjoyed High school Of The Dead. Also enjoyed Occult Academy.

And drop Shukufuku no Campanell from my list of things I might be watching. I can not find a single review that had something good to say about it.

Why not, you know, watch an episode and judge for yourself?

I'm in the process of watching high school of the dead and I'm pretty uninterested already.

And the OP isn't even over.

I understand nerds dig the whole zombie thing and fanservice but you'd think they'd try to make a show about more than that.

This is yet another show I would have stopped watching in the first few minutes if slap law hadn't been invoked. :/

edit: yep. Zombies and ridiculous fanservice is all it is.

I would agree with your assessment of High School of the Dead.

Shukufuku no Campanella: this is a porn game with the porn removed, and lets be honest if you remove the sex from porn there isn't much left.

Mitsudomoe: less cute and less funny then Hanamaru Kindergarten and less disturbingly perverse then Kodomo no Jikan. The show is basically 8 year olds making sexual jokes and fanservice, and yes there ages are stated they don't just "look young". I took a very long shower after watching.

Occult Academy: I think that this is the lighter of the two real horror shows this year the other being noitamnA's Shiki. By lighter I only mean that there are more comedic sections the story seems deeper then the description and publicity art would lead you to baleave.

Still watching: Occult Academy and Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi
watching tomarrow: Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan, Seitokai Yakuindomo

I watched the first episode of Digimon Xros Wars yesterday. It was ok. Nothing too special, but it will probably pick up in the next couple of episodes or so. Definitely going to keep watching it. :D

Ditto, I'm don't care much for fan service myself and while I kind of enjoy how it's stylized, there's nothing much more beyond that. I'll probably wait until the series is over to finish it (even though it's only one ep in =P).

I'll probably stick with Occult Academy and K-On!! for now.

Legend of the Legendary Heroes: If you took every bad RPG chicle and crammed them into one anime you would have Legend of the Legendary Heroes. The show attempts to create a overly complex world that would only seem complex to a elementary school student to everyone else it is boring and simple.

Shiki: Is right now the best offering of the season, but the summer is week. It is a fairly good horror mystery so far with some unique charters. It is definitely worth a watch the character designs are different as with most of the noitaminA block. The look is like a cross between Paradise Kiss and House of Five Leaves

Moyashimon (Live-Action): Ya it isn't anime but it is sharing the noitaminA block with Shiki and the block is the last bastion for constant high end shows. The tempo is slightly too fast pushing too many manga chapters together for its own good. The show's CG is campy but cute and it seems to work with a show that is as over the top as Moyashimon.

Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan: I found nothing really good to say about this show, it seems as they took a bunch failed ideas and shoved them into one show. The quality of art is awful either made ultra cheep or by a group of people who really didn't care.

Seitokai Yakuindomo: Kid transfers into a formerly all girls high school not do to the insanely high female to male ratio, but do to it being close to home. He has no interest in starting a harem but I'm sure he will be forced into it. Seitokai Yakuindomo is your normal gag-oriented school romantic comedy harem with paint by number characters.

Watching: Shiki, Moyashimon (Live-Action), and Occult Academy.

I'm not so sure that will be the case. It strikes me as going to be a bit different than that, looking at the topics the girls talk about (much to the guys discomfort.)

As to this I have seen *far* worse shows this season alone than this show.


So far I haven't seen Occult Academy yet. :[
