I tried watching Deep Space 9 and Bashir completely ruined it for me at the start of the third episode.
"Hey everyone doing their jobs in Ops, I met that spy and he talked to me and it was all super-awesome!"
No way am I putting up with that.
Character development mother****er. Do you know of it?
Then again, DS9 takes a while to get truely interesting.
Currently watching Samurai 7. Verdict: meh, it works well enough.
Samurai 7 is an odd show. It never bothers to explain the deal with the giant flying mech samurais and all that. Yet for some reason all the wierdness of the setting keeps things kinda interesting. Its just really sloppy in a lot of things, poor consistency. Like for example, there is one scene where the samurai lose their weapons as they pretend to be taken prisoner. Yet as the giant floating ship thing starts crashing down, they suddenly escape the ship with all their weapons on them. There was no way for them to have searched and found the weapons as they barged from one fight scene into the escape scene. Stuff like that, its just poorly directed.
And Blue Gender. Verdict: Giant monster bugs fighting people in power armor! Sounds awesome, but in practice is a bit more mediocre.
This show just got downright wierd near the end. And the ending was a major "What the actual **** just happened?".
Though I liked how the 'final boss':
Just promptly got shot in the head after he was finished delivering his 'I'm so evil, this is my master plan' speech.
Just finished with Gundam AGE yesterday. Very disappointing ending. The writing could really have been a lot better, and there was a general lack of a climactic duel.
I haven't watched the last 3 episodes yet, but even as a big gundam fan I can only say that Gundam Age was overal just bad
. It felt like a major chore just to sit through it.
SAO i'm ... iffy about. It's really predictable and cheesy at points and lol random drama, but it's still got a nice setting. Though lately its been focusing on a bit too much cyber-sex/flirting/DRAMA and not enough boss raiding. Uhm...I'll be generous and 7/10.
I'll second this opinion. I do quite enjoy it though.
Two other shows I'm watching and really like are the second season of Kyoukai senjou no horizon (wierd of a show as it is, I enjoy the **** out of it) and Oda Nobuna no Yabou.
Still need to get around starting second season of Rinne no lagrange.
