I vote for Sonata!
I just noticed this. Take a look at this picture.
Just from looking at this picture, you wouldn't have guessed that this girl was in a coma for more than 2 years. When Kirito came out of his coma he was a skeleton, but Asuna must be on some kind of special medical plan. I guess that happens when your dad is the president of a company. I guess the creators thought it would be too difficult for the viewer to want to save Asuna if she was ugly.
@Jinbeifan1: You certianly did called it sir. Well done.
How is it that Ichigo, who has never had any quincy training, is able to use blunt vene while Ishida, who had years of training, has shown almost no hint of it?
@takashichea: Sket Dance has fan service? I didn't know that. episode brought some more questions to the table. I hope they answer some soon. It looks like Frau will be making an appearance in the next episode. So far, the characters are assuming that she is a dude, but they will be in for a surprise. It also looks like this key chain will play some important part in the story. There is also the mystery woman that appears at the end. She seems to have some kind of connection to Akiho. Something tells me that this could be Akiho's mother. I don't think it is her sister, Misa. All the characters seem to talk about Misa as if she is dead. Whether happened 9 years ago, it seems like it was huge. It also seems to have affected the Robotics club. Nine years ago to was able to win a competition and build part of a robot. Then all of a sudden, the club is cut down to two people. That is a bit strange.
@takashichea: To my knowledge, the manga is still ongoing.
As for anime from this season I'm presently following, I'm watching Jormungand: Perfect Order, From the New World, Little Busters, Bakuman 3 and Psycho Pass.
If we're having a discussion on From the New World, Little Busters, or Psycho Pass, count me in.
Another fantastic episode of Robotics;Notes. So far, it looks like the creators of Steins;Gate have another winner. In this episode, Akiho and Kaito try rebuild an old hobby robot, but find that fixing the robot will be a tough challenge.
This show is a late bloomer. I read some of the manga. It's innocent and funny at first, but there are dark moments and frequent themes of slavery and poverty later on. It's pretty cliche at first and the first episode was sleepy which can cause people to drop it.
It turns out your assessment was right. Crunchyroll did a poll of what fall anime people dropped after one episode and Magi made the list as one of the top 5. Source
