Ugh... Queen's Blade. I have never before seen such trash for TV in my life.

This season has quite a selection. There are still many series I havent watched yet but so far I really like Cross Game, FMA, and Dragonball Kai (Nostalgia). K-ON! is pretty calm (I love the animation for the OP and the ED) but I think it will get better since it just started the engine and same thing with Phantom and Natsu no Arashi. Saki is kinda boring, especially since I am always comparing it to Akagi in my mind. And Arad Senki and Asura Cryin' are just plain bad. But who knows, it might get better...
I am looking forward to watching Eden of the East, Guin Saga, Basquash, Shangri-La and Valkyria.

Aaah yes Dragon Ball Kai. I was going to watch it but then halfway through the first ep I just wanted to hear the english dub because thats how I grew up with it. They were pretty crappy but I would not have it any other way now. Its just not the same in japanese. Hopefully the same old guys redub this anime as well.

But seriously DBZ remade in HD with widescreen is epic win. Hopefully they shorten the anime though theres room to make it in 100 eps :P

....
Pardon my ignorance but, what is DragonBall Kai? Another continuation in the vein of DragonBall GT, a remake or a reimagination of the series?

Look what I just found!

What I don't get about Queen's Blade is how they got so many big name seiyuu for such a trashy show. It's like, let's get as many recognizable names as we can, add boobs, and everyone will want to watch, right? RIGHT???

K-On! is exactly as expected--KyoAni moeblob overload. Dojikko is doji and cutely innocent, hyper girl is outlandish, ojou-sama has wtf eyebrows??!!, and Mio is uber win. As a corollary to the latter point, the ED is totally awesome.

Hayate no Gotoku!! is also as expected. I enjoyed the first season enough that I'm sure I'll keep watching it.

I find Saki more hilarious than I expected. I don't usually like sports-ish anime since the shounen fight style that they use usually annoys me, but when they apply it to mahjong, it just cracks me up, plus I like playing mahjong. Though I'm still trying to figure out why some girls have typical, unrealistically short skirts and others have actually reasonable skirt lengths. Frankly, the student councilcongress president looks better for having an actual skirt, compared to the scrap of cloth that boobsNodoka wears, since her character design seems to be purely fanservice-based, and which consequently irritates me like the entirety of Rosario+Vampire.

I'm gonna give Pandora Hearts another ep or two before I give up on it. The first ep was pretty slow, but it looks interesting conceptually, so even though everyone else seems to hate it, I'm giving it a shot (at least for now).

I'm a bit embarassed to admit that I'm looking forward to seeing a decent sub of Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica Crimson S. I <3 Corti.

While I love Sanguo Yanyi, I couldn't really watch Koihime Musou. Having most of the heroes become girls may work out for an eroge, but it just feels too ridiculous for me to want to watch what is basically an adventure anime, especially considering the extremely conspicuous absence of Liu Bei (whom I understand to be the protagonist in the game). I gave up after three or four episodes.

Wached Kiss on my deity and its kinda wrong in so many ways.....

I mean how can a goddess be a cute girl with a let-me-be-your-wife attitude? So its just another harem anime?

I saw Shin Mazinger Shougeki Z-Hen on the new release anime list and it turn out to be a lulz

Now gonna watch Onegai teacher ova :wink:

It's not a sequel, it's a remake. The first series had to split from the original manga storyline at a point because it wasn't finished yet but this new series is supposed to stick to it completely to the end.

.

And if K-ON! continues as it did in episode 1 it'll probably be my favorite show of the season. Mio = win, this is true.

Strange, noone mentioned Shangri-La! Char. design by Range Murata (Last Exile) what gives the whole series a unique atmosphere. Anyway, it's very interesting so far, can't wait for the next episode. (It airs on crunchyroll, though I heard, the subtitles are off...could someone who understands the original speech confirm that? Thanks!)
Pandora hearts can become interesting, depending on what happens next...
Asura Cryin' seems to be a big mixture of various elements, but that is not a problem, if it ends up like To Aru Majutsu no Index (it kinda reminds me of that series).
Tears to Tiara seems to be ok, though nothing special.
After one episode of Valkyria Chronicles, I want to play the game.
Sengoku Basara has some annoying points, like how the guy in the blue armor (with 6 swords) has exhaust pipes on his horse and speaks "oh how very macho" english pharses sometimes (with a strong accent, of course, but that is not much of a surprise). During the first episode, it also seemed to exaggerate. A lot. (Hint: Nuclear mushroom cloud...). It's also very hard to understand, what the grand hell is going on...but maybe it's just me...
I want to watch Eden of East.
Queen's Blade seems to be something, that is not ecchi anymore, but is somewhat less, then hentai...it also misses a story, originality and quality so far. I hope this will get better in the second episode...

FLMA 2. Haven't seen the first one, but fortunately it looks like they will give sufficient explanation of who is who. After the first episode I didn't feel like I was left out because I hadn't watched the previous season.
