    Didn't get to see the heroine in this episode at all.

    Sword Art Online is good so far; I've just watched episode 4. Episode 3 was a little depressing but episode 4 made the inner nerd laugh when he was talking about his health regen.

    The anime is running chronologically whereas the manga did a main story first and the time skipped back for side stories.

    Re: The Anime Thread 2 :)

    La storia della Arcana Famiglia is quite interesting so far (only 4 episodes out atm).

    There's an organisation, called Arcana Famiglia, which protect the island from outside threats and danger. The Famiglia is made up of people who have made contracts with the Arcana cards, and have received special abilities due to this. On his birthday celebration, the "Papa" has decided it's time for him to retire and give up his seat to a new male who has control over an Arcana. To decide who in the "family" gets this seat, he calls for a tournament, called Arcana Duello, between Arcana-users. To the winner, he promises the "Papa" seat, a wish of the winner's choice... And his daughter's hand in marriage.

    Thanks, have added to list. The anime looks like it is along the same lines as Hitman Reborn ?

    Re: The Anime Thread 2 :)

    Just started on watching SAO, the world is unique indeed but I think it does fall quite short from a "good" anime. They just seem to be putting a lot of random chars in with separate plotlines in right now, hopefully they'll be a converging point as it does seem slightly rushed atm.. From killing the boss, to level 48 to level 78 in 4 episodes?

    I believe that it will have something interesting that will pop up though. I wanna see more Asuna too cos she was pretty good, I wonder how strong she is now.

    EDIT: I also laughed when it was 7v1 and they only did 400 damage whilst his regen was 700 or something! Too funny!

    Re: The Anime Thread 2 :)

    Apparently the main story starts at episode 8-9. These are just random stories that help you build up knowledge of the main characters.

    Re: The Anime Thread 2 :)

    A lot of my favourites are already on the list, loved Clannad and Zero no Tsukaima. One I didn't see was Haibane Renmei, it's a very interesting Drama/slice of life anime that is subtle but moved me immensely. Also liked DNAngel, not really sure which genre it would fit into however.

    The anime of Sword Art Online is rushed, especially if you read the light novel... you'd feel unsatisfied with the anime :/

    Mio! Loved her character in K-on!

    Gah I've been addicted to To Love Ru Darkness damnit, just read through it all in one sitting, lol.

    I can't believe how much hype SAO is getting though, I personally think it's a bit overhyped.

    It feels way too rushed. Modern anime fights are way too short, miss those DragonBall Z fights which lasted 10 episodes or those Bleach fights which lasted an episode.

    The fight with the spider monster took exactly 1 minute to finish and was completed in the time before the opening for that episode started!? Then, the main bad guy was defeated in ahandful of minutes. And, what's with this bs they made that his sister is actually his cousin. Seriously, who would root for his sis ?

    Hayate No Gotoku Season 3 - Can't take my eyes off you out now.
    I have dropped it after watching first 2 eps. I haven't laughed even once in both episodes. Shame.
    Gintama Season .... nvm .. episode 253-255 has now aired and it's back after a hiatus of 6 months.

    They didn't show any of the fights in the last episode of the arc and just breezed through. Very very disappointed and I now wish it doesn't make a comeback!

    Re: The Anime Thread 2 :)

    Just got back into Bakuman and damn, I'm loving it! I just started on the second season again.

    Right now out of all the things I'm watching, these are probably my current rankings in order of my own preference:
    Bakuman > Hunter x Hunter > To Love Ru Darkness > Sword Art Online > Btoom!/K Project/Psycho Pass/Little Busters!/Naruto

    Quite a lot of standard shounen stuff in that list, would be great to watch something "screwed" up like Mirai Nikki but I guess watching light hearted things with a bit of comedy is quite relaxing too and doesn't keep me too addicted. It's hard to rank the new anime with only a few episodes out at the moment. Not too much of a fan of Little Busters! but I'll probably finish watching it just because it's by Key and I loved Air and Clannad. I don't really get the same vibes from this one though. I'd love to rewatch Clannad one day, that truly was amazing.
