Bumping this because the season is starting and the first episode of selector spread WIXOSS was incredibly gay. Most of the episode is Hitoe taking Ruuko out, including to a "Girl meets Girl festival"(!), Ru is hung up on Tama, Iona continues to be Iona, but with more naked embracing imagery, and the preview is about Akira's feelings towards Iona

Is Wixoss actually worth picking up? As in, starting from the first season. I've basically been avoiding anything Mari Okada-related following the disappointment which was BRS (TV)... the series looked like something I might have picked up for the seiyuu and hopeful subtext otherwise, but my yuri-radar response was to give it a pass. I will admit I'm somewhat curious now, however.

Okada can be hit-or-miss, but I don't avoiding her entirely is a good idea. And BRS was worth it for the fights, if nothing else

The first season of WIXOSS was pretty good, if slow in the middle. Yuri-wise, there was some stuff that could be read into, but not much active shiptease. What happened with this episode was fairly surprising and I'm not sure where they're going with it

I watched it at first since I heard it had some yuri subtext. Somewhere down the road, I got hooked and forgot the original reason I watched it xD.

"The world isn't square" doesn't work as well in English as it does in Japanese, that was a bad translation I'm sure most people didn't get the meaning.

Something about Bell's flank not working on her right? Had to go through some serious analysis to come to that

Close! Really what it means is that the world isn't black and white.

This is happy Tomino though, depressed Tomino would've already kill about 20 innocent bystanders in episode 2

Happy Tomino doesn't stay long, Bell-kun won't have that shit eating grin on his face for much longer, mark my words.

Cross Ange is going to be the trainwreck of the season.

Wow, seriously. I just finished watching the first episode myself. If they are actually setting up for a het end I can only describe this series as hilarious(in the "sometimes I actually wish this world would go to hell" sense)ly offensive. The sight of that brown-haired Kira-lookalike faggot makes me feel like I wanna puke.

I'm gonna keep watching, but that's only pretty much because I'm a delusionally optimistic masochist. Do not recommend to yuri fans as of now.

(Also seriously fuck Sunrise. Ahahaha. I started giving them a chance again thanks to Love Live! but most of the stuff they produce is really crap, if this doesn't turn out I think I'll go back to not giving a shit about anything they put out.)

Yeah, Cross Ange is mostly pretty bad. The action is good, the music is good, the writing is complete crap. From some people who saw a pre-screening, there is some yuri in the side characters, but it looks like the main pairing is het

Fortunately, Sora no Method turned out pretty well. Cute, feels, definite yuri potential

It's something else I tell you... If you think It's just about that Kira "Jesus" Yamato look-a-like... Think again, http://i.imgur.com/dnsDC4V.jpg

Fukuda is trolling everyone I swear.

Anti-feminist in what respect? Most people focus on the last scene, and obviously the one meant to be shocking would probably the one most people focus on ( btw the blood isn't hers ).

But let's look at other things.
That scene where they take the baby "Yo it's kay, you can make a new one, just try not to make a monster next time" Like, are you foreal here?

Then there's the time where the Queen dies, really no one seem to care. Move along folks, nothing is happening here. Her siscon rapist in the making brother proclaim himself leader now, people are like... The family was harbouring a Norma and all, let's not doubt our new overlord!

What can I say... These people are not being like normal human beings at all. I'd say this show is really anti-humanity.

A lot of shows are turning out to be not so good this season, I might just watch this for the ride.

Maybe that's just how messed up their world is. I'm not going to claim Cross Ange's first episode was great in any ways, but I'll still be following the show for a little bit more.

I don't think you should be ruling this season out yet. Almost half of the 40 shows this season hasn't even aired yet. I'm already anticipating my enjoyment for season 2 of Psycho Pass and Hitsugi no Chaika. Not to mention I really like most of what I've seen. There's also Parasite, Mushishi (for some reason I'm never in the right mood for this show). Inou-Battle also looks really fun.

Fate/Stay Night's first episode was amazing to say the least. Based Ufotable is doing it again.

Sora no Method has a pretty cute and fluffy start. Combined with a mystery to solve, hints of a less happy side of the story, and add yuri undertones. Pretty sure I'll like this show.

Log Horizon's new character design is still quite jarring. Hopefully I'll get used to it soon. Shiroe is still plotting and planning. Looks like this season will have a little more focus on Akatsuki and that's always nice. There's even air megane pusing now.

I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying is a short comedy centered around an Otaku husband's life. Unfortunately their jokes aren't clicking with me, but I like the small cameos they shove into the show.

Kokkuri-san is quite cute so far, but I'd enjoy it better if it doesn't stay this way. We'll see.

Ended up stopping after the firsrt five minutes of World Trigger for no concrete reason. Maybe I didn't like how it started, especially with the CGI monster. The opening was also quite boring. Will pick it back up later to see though.

Selector Spread WIXOSS will probably be full of melodrama and yuri undertones and I'm going to enjoy it anyways.

Will probably do another longass post after I've caught the rest of the shows I'm planning to watch.

The best anime this season will be Grisaia no Kajitsu.
The synopsis in anichart reads:
"One day, P*NIS arrives and throws the orderly rhythm of Mihama off balance. Is P*NIS what the girls need to hold of their lives once more, or will the weight of their pasts prove too steep a wall to overcome? Or is P*NIS' past even heavier than any of the others? Like, fo reelz?"

I'm not a feminist, in fact, I always objectify women, but the idea that woman can't do sh*t without interference of Y chromosome really ticks me off.

Oh, and there's a hint about he might be the most unfortunate of them all? The author must be stealing idea from my fantasy diary, I can totally relate to the protagonist!!!1!

I'm so mad at this series that I won't bother making any sense to you guys.

By the way, do you know that Urobuchi is making an original?

Well, he's pretty unfortunate, but he's a certified badass™.

Isn't Grisaia based on an eroge?

I guess I shouldn't expect compelling story line from porn.

I know a few friends who have seen the VN and they've recommended it to me. I don't think you should judge something just because its an eroge. Fate/Stay Night and Saya no Uta are a few popular eroge with really great stories.

I mean that Grisaia just isn't my cup of tea. Maybe it have great story or anything, I'm just not interested from that plot summary. I quick to judge thing like that.

As for eroge, yes, there are a lot of them with great story. But for most of the time, great compelling story is just a nice plus, not the main attraction. I play Sono Hanabira ni Kuchiduke wo and i love it, but I also think that if they toned down the sex and up the drama, it'd be better.

If that make me sound prudish, I don't hate porn it just goes to different stomach.

Honestly this is one of the least interesting looking season in a while. At least regarding my tastes, of course.
I guess that I will be checking Sora no Method, if Hylarn says that turned pretty well.
And besides that, time to check the backlog!!

Group watching stuff is so fun really.

Group watching is so fun.

Soon I'm going to be watching Kiseijuu / Parasyte with /a/. Much hope that it isn't too censored considering it's a late timeslot.

Indeed it is, my japanese is not so good to do it regularly, but Build Fighters is pretty much your everyday shonen so it's quite easy to understand i did manage to go through Saint Seiya Omega by raws after all
It also helps that the folks from /m/ are quite passionate about it
