Sword Art Online 2 episode 1

Awesome scale 6/10 I don't get why people are hating on it. I really liked it sure it could use some work, but so could everything else on TV

I'm going to keep watching this

I've been really busy this past week. Let's see if I can remember off the top of my head:

Blue Gender eps. 1-3 - So far this series has brought me only a minimal satisfaction with it's characters and fan service.

Rail Wars! ep. 1 - Who knew that a series on trains could be so much fun? Really digging the main cast as well as their easy to distinguish character designs.

Sailor Moon Crystal ep. 1 - I LUV IT! The animation has improved dramatically and Mitsuishi-san hasn't lost her touch as Usagi-chan.

Gundam Unicorn ep. 7 - Been putting it off for a while but finally caught it recently and the one scene in particular that caught my attention was when Banagher and Full Frontal were traveling through time in their mobile suits and that particular orchestral piece based on the theme song from Encounters in Space is playing. So touching.

Rahxephon eps. 7-9 - These fan service episodes are slowly but surely ensuring that I continue to give this series a continued watch and does it make me a pedo if I think Megumi is the hottest one to rock a bathing suit? :uhh:

Aldnoah.Zero ep 1.
First episode was great, interesting plot but can't really say its new. The music was good but really had a Gundam Unicorn feel to it, not surprising since Hiroyuki Sawano doing it. And Isaac Asimov reference ahoy!
Shirogane no Ishi Argevollen ep 1
Had a real robot sort of feel with the combat scenes besides that nothing really much to say.

Nadia: Secret of Blue Water eps 17-20

I'd be a broken record by now if I just kept repeating how much this series thrills me. However, I do have one change of tune: It feels like the series has hit a definite status quo. The constant state of flux that the series maintained for an impressive 12 to 16 episodes feels like it has finally settled into a state where the relationships have been sufficiently defined. This is neither good nor bad, just an observation.

I have heard that the infamous Island Arc is coming up soon (episode 23 or so). My anime-watching friends and I (or at least the other one of us who hasn't already seen the series) have decided to watch everything, so I'm waiting with just a little bit of anticipation to see if it will really be that bad or if this is going to wind up like Magma Diver all over again (meaning, episode(s) that countless others seem to hate that I actually love or at least consider to be okay).

The first episode of Nadia I saw was one of the Island episodes so it skewed my perceptions of them as "bad" somewhat.

Tokyo ghoul Ep. 1
I got immediately hooked after seeing the (Well directed) scene, where the main protagonist starts to eat (And vomit) food and tries to prove himself, that he hasn't turned into a ghoul.
