Week 1 and 2 for the Winter Season

Week 1:

Gosick Episode 1: 5/10

Weak start. The mystery is easy to decipher and it just has an essence of stupidity in it. I like Victorique though which is why I’m continuing this.

Beelzebub Episode 1:6/10

Its funny I guess. I’m being kind by giving it a 6 really. Its what gags in SJ are like. I do hope it gets better cus I’m also sticking with this.

Fractale Episode 1: 6/10

Letdown. It is pretty intriguing with the hints of a new perspective in beliefs and all with no one owns a house anymore and Phyrine is quite interesting but it was a boring first episode for me. I do trust this gets better though which is also why I’m sticking with this.

Kimi ni Todoke Season 2 Episode 1: 7/10

It is a solid recap. I just don’t like Ume which is th reason for me preventing this from getting an 8.

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Episode 1: 8/10

The plot is a bit slow (kinda like how Nanoha started) but the animation is just :-o. SHAFT and Shinbo finally got their act straight and the action scenes are just pure awe. If I’m grading by visuals this is definitely a 10. 8 is still high though and I can see a great premise with this one.

Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? Episode 1: 8/10

Surprisingly good and funny. i thought this would be your average moe/harem show but no. Its a zombie who became a Masou Shoujo. This is just epic lulz which is why I’m giving it a solid 8.

Level E Episode 1: 8/10

Unlike Beelzebub which is a fellow Jump series, Level E is scarily funny. The gags are deadpan and just. Wow that was funny. A solid 8 for me.

Hourou Musuko Episode 1:8/10

Surprisingly deep. Reading the premise and looking at the promos I thought it would be just a light hearted show with a guy who likes cross dressing but NO. Its deeper than that. All the characters have weird personalities and there is a huge drama flaming between the characters. The sakura at night scene was exceptionally dramatic and pretty. Another solid 8.

For the continuing series:

To Aru Majutsu no Index Season II Episode 13: 6/10

Aargh.Rage. Just. F*cking firework display.

Bakuman Episode 14:7/10

Its picking up I guess. This was an especially good chapter in the manga which is why I kinda liked this episode. Eiji and Ashirogi Muto finally met. I can’t wait to see the other Manga-ka’s A solid 7 is good for this one.

Week 2:

Gosick Episode 2: 7/10

Finally its picking up. The mystery is still quite predictable but I like the atmosphere built in this episode. Its well executed and Victorique just got cuter. Wahahaha I give a 7.

Beelzebub Episode 2: 7/10

A bit better than last week’s episode and I do think Beel is cute. He can be Misaka Mikoto’s son after all that rage thunder blasts he gives.

Fractale Episode 2: 7/10

Nessa’s appearance is a good change of pace and I can feel the premise a bit more with this episode. Yes it is getting better but its still moving slowly. A 7 would be appropriate for this.

Kore wa Zombie Desuka Episode 2: 8/10

Its still consistently funny and the plot is getting a bit deeper. I’m really liking this series. I’ll give it another 8.

Kimi ni Todoke Season 2 Episode 1: 8/10

The true episode comes and it is as solid as ever. I especially like the ending scene which shows how slow the pace of Kazehaya and Sawako’s relationship will be like. Valentines Day never got so depressing and sad (in a good way though). Ume and Pin cockblocks this episode though to get a 9 which is why I’ll give it an 8.

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Episode 2: 9/10

Plot finally starts and things started to be more explained like what witches are or how you need ta wish to become a Mahou Shoujo. Animation is still top notch and I’ll give this a higher rating of 9.

Hourou Musuko Episode 2: 9/10

It gets deeper this episode with Chiba being thrown into the mix. This is a full-fledge middle school drama with the angsts of puberty filled children. Very insightful series. I’ll give it one more point so a 9.

Level E Episode 2: 9/10

Deadpan variety got even funnier. The flow of humour is just so smooth and Yukitaka is doing his best as a tsukkomi. The prince is just outrageously funny. +1 so 9.

For Continuing Series:

Bakuman Episode 15: 6/10

Haaay. And I thought it was getting better. A very slow episode and very Yawn-ish.

To aru Majutsu no Index II Episode 14: 7/10

Another nice beginning and my hopes are brought up again. Just hope it carries on and not downright suck until the end of the arc.
