Meh, none of the new anime this season are really grabbing me. I think I was spoiled by so many great shows last year. At least we've still got Yona, Ronja (what up with the drama, tho?), and Log Horizon. Plus there's new seasons of Working and OreGairu coming later this year, I think.

I just watched the last episode of Selfie on demand. Great show, terrible title. I only picked up three new shows this year, and that was one of them. It's too bad it didn't catch on, but I'm sure the terrible title had something to do with it.

Speaking of great show, terrible title, my other favorite new pick-up of the year is Jane the Virgin. #RogelioMyBrogelio. If I'm not going to have any more Henry Higgs, then Rogelio is the best character on TV right now. Waiting for it to come back from break, along with Chasing Life, which turned out to be much better than I expected, given it's on ABC Family.

And Community will finally be coming back in March, so they say. On Yahoo! Screen, whatever the hell that is.

Current Mood: blah blah

Yoru no Yatterman! If Episode 1 doesn't interest you, then... I give up.

Is it not crystal by now that we don't like the same things?

It didn't make our list on a first pass, but D's willing to try it because "pickings are so slim".

Everyone's different. It's really cool when someone does like your niche show, though.

Hmmm... What about Suzumiya Haruhi and Fruits Basket? Along with Honey and Clover, Furuba was the best show on my list.

I feel like I should re-watch it, it's been more than ten years.

Haruhi is one of those shows I watched without actually liking it. The Fruits Basket anime I enjoyed, the manga not so much.

Slayers is still my best, though. It's had a long reign.

Selfie also I think suffered from that freshman comedy syndrome where it is so hit or miss. I remember The Mindy Project being like that first season. Sometimes it was really good, but other times I was just like "Meh".

It's tough, too, because shows aren't given the time to work the kinks out. I think I read once that Cheers was the lowest-rated show in its first season, and it went on to last 11 years and win all kinds of Emmys. Shows don't get much of a chance to grow anymore.

Speaking of Mindy, it's continuing to lose me this year, while New Girl has rebounded tremendously.
