This show is /terrible/ for me. I pick up too many shows with the intention of dropping a bunch in the first couple of weeks. The worst this week had to offer was still good enough to give it another episode or two.

Some things had truly been great, though.

I don't tend to watch the shows that are currently being aired. I usually watch the shows the season before. So I'm currently going through Winter at the moment, with the occasional series from earlier on.

This allows me to watch shows back to back without having to wait a week for the next episode and forgetting characters or what's happening.

On my list for Spring, I have:

Akuma no Riddle
Brynhildr in the Darkness
Black Bullet

A few others that aren't on the list like:

Daimidaler The Sound Robot
Fuun Ishin Dai Shogun
Hitsugi no Chaika
Mangaka-san To Assistant-San
Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin

Might not all be amazing series, but it's usually the stuff I am interested in. There are probably other series that might interest me which I didn't think would.

Daimidaler is mostly considered super-bad, and Dai-Shogun is considered to be /even worse/, for what it's worth. No animation, no story, even the fan-service being crap, heh.

Also, one of the best things about watching a season or more late is you can avoid most of the dross. Winter had been almost entirely dross :(
