There were a couple of funny parts but just not enough to make the last set of episodes worth watching. Overall 2.75/5 Since the DVDs say "season 1" I assume there will be more.
pretty much what I thought, very nice drawing and great voice acting cast in the beginning... but it really never went anywhere besides blatant (and overdone) fanservice and repetitive cliche stuff

Really? I didn't find it to be either of the two, but it can be difficult to judge an anime based on 1-2 episodes. Take as an extreme example the first episode of Evangelion. The main character could come off on the side of trying to be cool but you will find that a lot in the detective genre. I found that at first Tenjho Tenge seemed like it was trying to be too "cool" but it grew on me after a few episodes.
well i usually do stop after few eps if i find it unbearble or not worth watching in one or the other way. saikano and kiddy grade comes to mind. interestingly tho, i rate uta-kata as one of my top picks from last year (also from Gimik). i really tried to make myself like fruits basket but stopped halfway thru

Regarding ooheadsoo's recommendation for Honey and Clover, I'm up to episode 23 now and it really is excellent. A bit whacky since Gainax also contributed to the production but overall, it's excellent with a good feel for pacing and the right mix between humour and drama. I think the only other romance/comedy that did the humour/drama transitions equally well was Kare Kano (a masterpiece blessed with a mediocre ending). Also, the characters are really outstanding and in 10 episodes there's more plot advancement than other anime series can manage in 26 episodes.

Finally a comedy/drama that doesn't utilize young and uber-cute/short-skirted/sailor-suit female characters with shrill voices. Personally, I couldn't stand recent, well-received productions like School Rumble or Azumanga Daioh.

The animation is definately good. The music is wonderful, unique and absolutely matching although the opening song is very weird. Also, one college teacher looks like Spike from Cowboy Bebop and another woman looks and behaves like a grown-up Ayanami Rei with brown hair.

My all time fav has to be FLCL though. This anime is just pure pleasure

Another good one which I dont see mentionned is Hikaru No Go, which is an anime about Go. Boring says you? nay. Give it a shot and see.
i'm a sucker for those "aim for the top" animes. Hikaru No Go ranks right up there - i wish they kept the series going until they reached Korea at least, too bad!

I'm currently trying to start on the Noir series. Should be good.
Fumoffu was absolutely brilliant! You should also try the new Full Metal Panic season called "Second Raid". It's a bit more like the first season meaning more action and plot but it still has its funny moments and after all, you still got the same amiable characters.

Noir is pretty much the polar opposite of the bright and happy Fumoffo but definately one of the best regardless of genre. Especially the soundtrack is extremely well done.

what? whats worng with uber-cute/short-skirted/sailor-suit female characters? and you cant stand school rumble?? <slashes saint.panda in half with Dojibiron-chop>

all jokes aside, I will check out honey and clover soon

Canvas2 looks average to alright, if you can enjoy game-anime conversions like i do, that is. nothing seems out of place, and I hope they can develop the drama element with the trauma-ridden heroine.

To Heart2 starts out alright, but its waaay, waaay, waaay too predictable and cliche towards the end. Dont wanna spoil it for you anything, but dont get your hopes up

wow,you like that types girl... except osaka ,I also like sakaki o(≧▽≦)o

yea,TH2 is cliche -a boy and a girl grew up together,the girl's affection are centered on that boy....well.well.. watch it if have a lot of boring time..

well, you gotta admit how much energy and craziness tomo-chan brings to azumanga. besides, I also happen to like Sekai from School Days. too bad no one believes me when I say they look kinda alike!


its not that I have trouble stomaching cliche material. after all, almost anything new out now is something already done before with a bit of twist and mix with other old stuff anyway. What bugs me is how cheap and uninvolving they made that To Heart2 anime. Da Capo season 1 was also a cliche, but that was quite fun to watch. Subtle difference eh?

I am sure you probably would have, but watch 2x2 shinobuden if you are bored

oh,you also know the School Days..,hmm,I have only watched the anime of SD
have you played the game?
in my mind,tomo chan () have much more energy than Sekai's,and you know tomo is away from the love things (yep,there is no boy-girl love in AZUMANGA ),but School Days is about triple love.anyway,maybe they just look alike,similar hair type,similar personality... have you seen the anime "Doki Doki School Hours Gold"? thats similar to AZU.
thanks for your recommendation,actually,I haven't seen 2x2 shinobuden will see it.
you make me remeber the anime of "Jubei ChanSecret of Lovely Eyepatch"
pretty funny(have 2seasons) !if haven't seen yet ,now go to find and watch it . highly recommend! ╰( ≧﹏≦)╯

P.S I got a question,is there a special commpellation in English for these animes that have many gals around only one guy ? is like the lovehina ,Magister Negi Magi. I just know this type of anime called imperial concubine anime in chinese and japanese..

Finished watching .hack//SIGN last week, very nice anime. I watched all 28 episodes (well, except for 1) in 3-4 days, and that hadn't happened with anything else except Evangelion. It is not an anime to everyone's tastes though, there are no action scenes to speak of, the main character is much dislikeable (100% for the first 5 episodes, and then it probably varies per person after that), the plot moves at the speed of continental drift, and it has a totally inconclusive ending because it's part 1 in a series and part 2 is a game. But it's still good.

I also watched first episode of FLCL, it is strange :P
