If just it wasn't by DEEN. Aside from the first episode, they drag out the story in the beginning, and then start rushing and cutting stuff to make it to the end. Overall it wasn't a bad adaptation, much better than others that have been crucified by DEEN, but they still have a lot to reflect upon for improvement.
It's about what I expected it to be. Nothing spectacular, but at the same time nothing too disappointing. More of the story and more characters getting a v2 route. The movie recap ep was entirely unnecessary, though.
cute lolis doing cute things. The writer didn't even bother to read a wikipedia article about britain before he put the characters into the japan setting, and it really, really shows. If you can stand that, it's a very cute show about cute girls doing cute things and the yuri undertones reverberate well.
double the lolis, double the DVD-only fanservice, half the time for every character to actually be developed, so only the problem ones get any sort of story focus. On the bright side, they do play a lot more basket ball than in the first season.
Kyoani found a way. Even with the terrible use of dubstep in the OST, I still find myself enjoying this show. The animation gets a bit shafty with the well drawn close ups, and it is good. no homo
The CG is noticeable, but they put enough effort into the designs that it's not a deal breaker. All the characters, especially Hajime and Katz, are very, very well done and the seiyuu work is absolutely amazing (especially Katz). The OST is great as well.
Amazing and fluid animation, and I'm a sucker for the strong shintoism base for the story.
Railgun S & Futari Milky Holmes:
Fuck you, JC staff.
Fuck you to hell.
Blood Lad, SymphG, Neptune, DXD NEW,Inu Hasami, Hakkenden S2, KKK, Love Lab, Gen'ei Taiyo:
Turn off your brain, sit back, and enjoy. most of the shows are hit or miss on whether you'll like them, and you will know whether or not you'll enjoy the show quite fast.
Blood lad being very much a pleasant surprise for me, and KKK takes a couple episodes before it really gets it's act together and starts being funny.
Stella C3, Fantasista Dolls, Kamisama Inai:
started off well, but then decided to just fall over in the mid-later bits. Not bad enough for me to drop the shows, but I wouldn't give them very much of a recommendation to anybody else looking for something to burn their time with.
Overall, summer 2013 was a great season. So many shows that interested me that I was unable to even watch them all (though I'm sure there'll be a crap season sometime soon and I'll get to my backlog then).
