Comments

Shingeki no Kyojin
Dark, original cool
Another show that should be shown after break
Interesting idea, very dark
art-9, effects-10, plot-7, sound-8, dialogue-9, interesting-quite so for once an anime intrigues me more than the manga, the gut-not the widest appeal but I'd like it
Extremely gruesome

Kotoura-san
So depressing… happy =) I'm a sucker for outcasts becoming happy/finding a place for themselves.
It's a good series with good comedic parts with a good bit of drama.
Probably want to see a few more episodes, but first episode was funny
Interesting idea for a shojo especially the mind reading
art-7, effects-9, plot-9, sound-9, dialogue-10, interesting-yes yes yes, the gut-definitely run it!
Very cute! Needs to be at SPAMM

Mondaiji-tachi ga Isekai Kara Kuru Sou Desu yo?
Fun, simple, but with interesting powers
It's interesting and has cool characters
I would watch it
Great idea show reminds me of "C," which I really liked
art-8, effects-10, plot-7, sound-8, dialogue-8.5, interesting-sure, the gut-seems alright go for it
This came from the sky. Meow

Suisei no Gargantia
Mecha, interesting
Slow start but interesting idea, interested in more
art-9, effects-10, plot-8, sound-9, dialogue-8, interesting-yes, the gut-go for it
Rave in space, very interesting even with space raves

Zettai Karen Children: The Unlimited Hyoubu Kyousuke
Looked to be a bit boring at first. Lots of OP magic people against the army? Bleh… but the end changed that. Betrayal, mystery, intrigue, pay
It's kickass except the squirl
Good action, good premise
Would watch due to a mystery/dual agenda idea
Art-8, effects-9, plot-7, sound-7, dialogue-9, interesting-yes, the gut-run it
Interested in seeing how the show turns out! Might even look it up myself

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure
Manly, the best action plus english
Seems like an old school anime; probably should be on after break if at all.
Chrono… the perfect show
art-6, effects-8, plot-7, sound-9, dialogue-6, interesting-oddly yes, the gut-this MUST be run, the score is low yes but I feel oddly drawn to this silly show
Shiny DBZ football with eyeliner and duckface and Aztec relics

Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru
Would enjoy watching Kotoura-san over this
art-7, effects-6, plot-6, sound-7, dialogue-7, interesting-no boring, the gut-pass
Might be a good shoujo anime for SPAMM

Maoyuu Maou Yuusha
Jumps around a bit, very interesting concept. Spice and wolf with jiggle physics
I've lost interest in it about episode 4
I think it could be ok, I just have no idea what kind of show it is action or comedy
***** A+
art-9, effects-10, plot-9, sound-8, dialogue-10, interesting-yes, the gut-Please, run this
Interesting, but veries a lot in tone. Also, the translation possibly allows the meaning to be lost. SPICE & WOLF WITH JIGGLE PHYSICS


For those of you who wanted it on a Friday, don't fret! I am planning to hold a request night.

Schedule subject to change as qPenguin is a moody guy.

His main mission is to save ESPers who are mistreated by humans, even if that be by force. Through his methods, he has saved many ESPer lives and gained the loyalty of those he has saved. The name of his group: P.A.N.D.R.A." --Anime News Network

"The story is set in a world embroiled by war between Humans and Demons. The Humans' greatest hero invades the Demon Queen's castle determined to vanquish her. However, instead of fighting back, the Queen proposes an alliance with the Hero. She explains how a sudden end to the war can bring further chaos to the world as the Humans once united to stand against their common enemies would eventually begin fighting among themselves, with similar issues already occurring at the Demon Realm. Convinced by her words, the Hero joins forces with the Queen and together they execute a plan to bring prosperity and a lasting peace to both Humans and Demons alike." --Anime News Network
"After watching this series, I still do not know the name of a single character." --qPenguin

"The story begins in the distant future in the far reaches of the galaxy. The Human Galactic Alliance has been constantly fighting for its survival against a grotesque race of beings called "Hidiaazu." During an intense battle, the young lieutenant Redo and his humanoid mobile weapon Chamber are swallowed up into a distortion of time and space. Waking from his artificially induced hibernation, Redo realizes that he has arrived on Earth, the planet on the lost frontier. On this planet that was completely flooded by the seas, people live in fleets of giant ships, salvaging relics from the seas' depths in order to survive. Redo arrives on one of the fleets called Gargantia. With no knowledge of the planet's history or culture, he is forced to live alongside Amy, a 15-year-old girl who serves as a messenger aboard the Gargantia fleet. To Redo, who has lived a life where he knows nothing but fighting, these days of peace continue to surprise him." --Anime News Network
"Because we needed more flying squirrel..." --qPenguin

8:55
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
Image
"This is the story of the Joestar family, and their battles against bizarre enemies. Jonathan Joestar's battle against the vampire Dio Brando starts it all, and it continues into roughly each second generation of Joestars through all parts of the story." --Anime News Network

9:20
Shingeki no Kyojin / Attack on Titan
Image
"Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by giants. Giants are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of giants.
Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a giant in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a super giant that appears out of thin air. As the smaller giants flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Eren vows that he will murder every single giant and take revenge for all of mankind." --Manga Helpers
"Dat smile O.o" --qPenguin

Still no JoJo? Schedule sucks. Put all the shows that aren't JoJo on there; it will still suck.

Holy crap this show is better than I thought.

Hmm... I might have to show ep2 for preview nighk... ep1 just doesn't have that great of an impact.

Ya see, JoJo had the opposite effect compared to Evangelion. After every Eva episode, I asked maybe the next episode would be better, and I was wrong each time. With JoJo, I said that the next episode couldn't possibly better, and I wrong each time. Hmmm I guess in a way they had the same effect.

This is why I tried to show episode 3 of Madoka instead of 1 but in the end it didn't turn out as well as I would have hoped. I tried splainin during the show but there are some things I'm good at splainin, but that, along with most things, I'm not good at splainin.

I've also post the results in the survey thread, so keep an eye there too.

Personally, I feel that Kotoura-san did better than it should have; it is a good show, but that first episode is great.
Maoyuu Maou Yuusha has the opposite problem of a better show than the first episode implies.

Story of Preview "Nighk":
When asking what day of the week would work best for people, I mistakenly wrote a k instead of the t on the board. I have been rolling with it ever since. I wonder how many people actually noticed considering that only the people at that meeting and my roommate pointed this out to me (")>
