Fall is just finishing up at this point. Battle Spirits and a few other kiddy shows weren't watched. I didn't touch the latest season of To Love-Ru due to not having seen any of the rest. I decided NOT to touch Little Busters and Hidamari Sketch to save myself some sanity. I knew I wouldn't enjoy these so why keep going with something I know I'll hate! CHII IS LEARNING!
Gintama started up again but we only got a few new episodes to sink out teeth into. They were great episodes too! I wish we got more but we will be getting some come January sometime so at least there's that to look forward to. I find it interesting that they are airing re-runs in the meantime! Initial D Fifth Stage started and it is as good as ever. So nice to see more of this show being animated! A few other specials were aired but have stalled so I won't bother talking about them too much since they didn't leave an impression on me. A show that looked cute Haitai Nanafa aired but never got any subs along with another cute one by the name of Picchipichi. I will watch these if they ever surface.
Best Show of fall is Shin Sekai Yori hands down. I can't wait for more! I'd make the top anime Chiisan Oji-san but that's a pretty short show that no one else has heard of anyway. Check it out, it is about a little old man!
Worst Show of fall is Seitokai no Ichizon 2. Yup it still sucks. But it feels like a cop-out making it the worst show of fall since no one watched it. So I'll make Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo the "winner" for the title.

Surprise enjoyment: Busou Shinki was a lovely surprise since it's ova kinda sucked. Btooom started off kinda lame but got better then the ending happened... I'd still say that I enjoyed the show overall though. Girls und Panzer TANKS! That's about it... Wooser no Sono Higurashi I ended up liking a whole lot more than I though I would. Probably because I blogged it. I didn't get a lot of what was going on but that's ok because it was pure randomness!
Surprise fail: Code:Breaker kinda took me by surprise by how much it sucked bawls. Robotics;Notes has let me down but it's not really too much of a surprise. I can't decide if I like or hate the otaku chick...
Honorable mentions: Suki-tte Ii na yo. actually turned out to be a pretty decent show after the first few episodes but still pretty forgettable too. Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo keeps on being entertaining. I'm not sure how it keeps happening! Medaka Box 2 as the same score as season 1 but I enjoyed this season slightly more than the first one. I kinda hope we get more of it. Zetsuen no Tempest has a lot of talking but it just happens to be the kind of talking I like a lot. Can't wait to see where this one goes.
Fall has proven once again to be a very enjoyable season. Having so many shows airing certainly helps. I always feel a little overwhelmed with Fall and Spring anime wise though because there is just so much to check out.
The only 2 shows I didn't start were To Love-Ru and Pokemon. The first because I just haven't watched the season one of and honestly I have no real desire to watch it. It doesn't look like the type of show that I would enjoy in the slightest. The second being Pokemon well... I'm working on it very, very slowly with my Pokemon workout. I'm totally going to be starting that back up again come January.
I'm glad that I enjoyed this season a lot. There are only 5 shows that are under 5 out of 10 rating wise. I think that's pretty darn good out of 25 shows. I'm sad that it does hold the worst show of 2010 for me though. It would have held the best show as well but honestly Katanagatari is a pretty darn good pick for my 2010 best overall.
Best Show of fall for me aside from that adorable little dinosaurs would be Kuragehime. Every character was simply awesome. I'm completely in love with everything about this show it's impossible just to pick one moment.
Worst Show of fall for me without a doubt is Yosuga no Sora, actually no I'll make that one the worst overall for 2010. So next in line for fall is Fortune Arterial. Did anyone honestly even watch this show and enjoy it? Granted I didn't keep up with any chatter about it.
Here's my big list of Best to Worst shows of fall 2010:
- Kuragehime 10/10
- Omae Umasou da na 10/10

- Yosuga no Sora 1/10
Surprise enjoyment: Bakuman I personally can't believe I'm enjoying as much as I am. It's slow, slice of school life, and about making manga. I have pretty much NO interest in any of these subjects. Not to mention the romance thrown in here and there. So what keeps me watching and not bored to tears like most people with it by now? I honestly am not sure. I've just been really liking it. I think it heavily has to do with the characters though because they are just all amazing.
Surprise fail: Psychic Detective Yakumo not so much a surprise as a disappointment. I watched the first episode like everyone else and had the grrr reaction to it. The very end held my interest but it still failed. This show made me very sad because I was so looking forward to it.
Honorable mentions: Omae Umasou da na DINOSAUR! Enough said. Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt I didn't enjoy for the most part but I give credit where credit is due generally and it certainly deserves some of that. It was totally unique in a strange and odd kind of way. Yumeiro Patissiere what kind of ending was THAT?! I'm still very angry that they changed the OP from the amazing fluffy macaroon song to the shitty who know what OP. Don't get me started on the lame ending. They should have just kept going with the other series or nothing at all. This is why I generally hate shoujo!
Thanks for reading!
Sequels you always either look forward to them or dread them. Some people just instantly put a season 2 in their won't watch pile right away if they really hated the first series. I've not gotten the hang of saying NO to a season 2 yet so I've always been stuck watching them. Although this season ALL (ok well one doesn't count see the bottom of the post) of the sequels I actually have been looking forward to. We have a total of 8 this fall! If you aren't interested in sequels check out my mini reviews on all the new anime that is airing. Follow the links from post to post to see them all.
* Means I approve and look forward to watching each week.
To Aru Majutsu no Index 2
So far this lives up to my expectations. A few laughs, some nice action, and a plot.
*Yumeiro Patissiere 2
More fun baking time. The focus now is growing up, looking at boys, and managing her own Sweets Shop. At least the food aspect is still there. It's still very fun to watch this adorable show each week for me. Only one total disappointment from this season so far though. THE OP IS TERRIBLE. I want my Happy Happy Macaroon back please. Although I'm sure this one will grow on me too...
*Sora No Otoshimono 2
Fan-service, comedy, harem. Generally these words are POISON to me. In the case of this anime though it's something special. The way they parody everything is just AWESOME. With the addition of a new Angelroid the laughs have been upped greatly. All episodes so far have had me laughing till I almost cried.
Hakuouki: Shinsengumi Kitan 2
I bet it'll be the same kind of meh as season 1 was. It is interesting but not interesting enough. Oh look it's the same. Meh. At least it's pretty.
*Arakawa Under the Bridge 2
This show seriously is the best comedy I've ever watched. Well one of them anyway. I love every character to bits! I love seeing the romance progress between out 2 main characters.
*Letter Bee 2
Lag cries still... But I won't scare off because of that. I love the way this anime looks and I always wonder if Niche will get to eat her Steakeeeee!
*Super Robot Wars: Original Generation 2
For some reason I didn't put this title on my preview post but oh well. I haven't played the video game it is based upon either and I actually hadn't seen it's season one or it's ova. So I watched those before starting The Inspector. I gotta say I was most impressed with season one so I looked forward to starting The Inspector and was not disappointed. I still feel I would like it even more if I did in fact play these games. Oh so many games around that I wish to play but will probably never get around to. OH WELL!
Motte To Love-Ru still not watching it just like I said. In truth I just haven't seen S1 and I don't see it as that big of hurry to get around to it.
