March comes in like a lion

Ah I loved the music they used for the show already. It has this smooth vibrant feel that connects with the lighthearted atmospheric setting.

The episode introduced Rei, the main guy and there's even a small glimpse of his past. I think Shaft's style works for the show despite my initial impressions of it. The comedy and realism works fine so far, really liked the family feel of the show as well. Pretty good start, can't wait for more. With 2-cour, they can adapt quite a bit from the manga.

Feels weird posting again after a break peeps. Just moved to another country and stuff has been quite hectic. In case somebody shed a tear for my absence or jumped for joy. I shed a tear at least. ;(

Really positively surprised for this show:3 I hope the character development actually happens during the show because this was a strong start for a show in a relatively bland season so far. Something to really look for next week well, apart from JOJO.

BTW Both OP and ED were just <3
Bump Of Chicken apparently just makes good stuff. Haven't forgotten Kekkai Sensen OP yet. LOVED THAT STUFF.

Just say my negative bias towards a non-Monogatari Shaft is too strong, yet the show itself is quite okay. Not that hot with the animation techniques though. Moreover, I still have a what if in my thoughts whether JC Staff could have handled the humor much better.

Nonetheless, it's one of the best premieres so far.
I am not sure if good animes are getting fewer these days or my taste has gone numb because most of what I watch recently look the same.

Oh, another shameless plug. Here's my blog: http://samui26.wordpress.com

Man this slipped under my radar. The mangaka is the one who made Honey & Clover!? I'm so in. Premiere did not disappoint, this could be the dark horse of the season and maybe even year.

There's been an increasing amount of stuff I've seen that deals with characters dealing with depression. Certainly not easy to watch, but still incredibly good.

Looping thoughts, poor appetite, not caused by current events (he's winning). Now that is the real deal.

I could swear those cats are mine.

I mean, it was amazing and all, but I still dont know exactly what it was that's been killing Kiriyama inside.

First thoughts: I REALLY want to rewatch Hikaru no Go.
First and One Half Thoughts: Murder-mystery elements? Imma follow  that HnG rewatch with Shion no Ou.
Take Away: This would make one hell-of-a Eroge.

Between this and Yuri on Ice, assuming they maintain their level of quality, I am content with this season.

This is the kind of flashback I like. Natural, tied into what's happening in the present, shows who the characters really are, and hardly any exposition. It's easy to see why Rei's attached to the three sisters.

Oh so this is what this is about. Well, some of it, at least. My guess is that his adoptive guardian ("Father") started him on Shogi and the two girls in the photo were his daughters.
