Just wondering, is it just me, or is Shinsekai's first ED unique in composition? It gives me this fresh vibe whenever I listen to it that differentiates itself from many other anime OP/EDs.
That's the flaw of Gen Urobochi's work I feel. Just like Saya no Uta, the start is very intriguing and amazing, but once the pieces are hinted, and then showed, every other pieces just falls in nicely in a somewhat predictable way; or even if unpredictable, it still makes sense to not feel like too much of an ass pull.
I have the same opinion with youon Shinsekai Yori's ED I feel. It's been a long time for a ED to feel this way.

Shin Sekai Yori is the second biggest surprise for me. The beginning was quite.....I have to say... Boring.. But somewhere around ep 10 I just simply got addicted to it.
Personally, I'd also recommend Mondaiji Tachi and Sakurasou no pet Kanojo.
Mondaiji is a great mixture of lighthearted trolls and seriousness (somewhere around 7:3) with a super badass main character who is also smart.
Sakurasou is somewhat similar. Lots of trolls and lots of seriousness. I find Sakurasou exceptionally entertaining because there is lots of character development.
And... For the intial D and Gintama fans
(fans would know) people who likes initial d and Gintama. They are both airing right now.
Glad that you're hooked on JoJo on the first episode and stayed for the awesome. I've been hesitant to recommend the manga series since it's just too massive to start where the art is uniquely awesome instead of experimentally bad. Now I'll just point to the anime and it does a better job than the manga did, what with all the interesting SFX, exaggerated "drawn" SFX used in the manga superimposed in the anime, and the godly use and timing of the OST and crossfading of Yes' Roundabout for the ED.
Shinsekai Yori I can agree that it's quite boring in the beginning. Didn't follow it too closely too. But that's fixed right after ep. 8 when most people were turned off by that particular scene LOL. After that it's just been uphill world building galore.
How similar is Sakurasou to Tora Dora? I'm not a fan of rom com, and Tora Dora blew my mind away with it's great character interactions. Still haven't changed my mind on a lot of romcoms though, and I put Tora Dora as an exception rather than the rule for rom com.
