I wanted to try something new this season and score the shows I watched from 1 to 5. These are my first impressions on these shows and not a full grade of the whole series, I put my full judgment on the second or third episode to see if the series is really going anywhere. Also episode 00 if Kimi ni Todoke season 2 will not be graded as it is not the true start of the series. Also Mitsudomoe Zouryouchuu!
will not be graded either since I have not seen the first season and would be unfair to rate the sequel. So let get started. Starry☆Sky
Visuals not that great and characters pretty bland. However, episodes are structured in arcs to allow for each male character to have a fair share for happiness and this is mainly for the ladies.
2 out of 5 Rio Rainbow Gate
Very silly, a mess of a plot, weak voice acting, and fan-service up the behind. Their attempt at having any kind of seriousness faults completely when they so many problems.
1 out of 5 Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica
Great art styles in many areas, a twist on the usual magical girl formula, and sign of good plot and character development. While many would complain its by the book of magical girl structure in some areas, it still able to keep it interesting.
5 out of 5 IS: Infinite Stratos
While is has a generic plot of boy goes to all girl school, it has pertinence for good character development for both the male lead and the girls, and well done combat.
3 out of 5 Yumekui Merry
Lots of pertinence for this one with its idea of the dream worlds, and mysterious girl with power as well as a boy with a connections to both. Just hopping they improve the fight scenes and art settings.
3 out of 5 Gosick
Great animation and visuals, has some good charm, and possible depth with the mysteries. Just need more development to some of the characters. Also Victorique is god damn adorable :3
4 out of 5 Cardfight!! Vanguard
Again, a poor mans Yugioh with poor looks, poor characters, and just a big fat ad!
1 out of 5 FREEZING
Pretty heavy on the world and the connections characters have on the events that are going on but poor visual, lack of any character development, and a bad mix of fan-service and gore is what makes this show suffers.
2 out of 5 Wolverine
While has the same Marvel story telling, Wolverine does well with a clean visuals, better actions, and its F-ing Wolverine. Just hope they keep this up.
3 out of 5 Onii-chan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janain Dakara ne
Dirty jokes are either too off putting to keep looking at or funny enough for some to keep watching. As for me it is the odd character design that keeping me from continuing.
