The fact that Supercell's fictional band EGOIST is doing an OP/ED doesn't hurt at all, love their music.

 

Determined to see Sakurasou to the end. I honestly think if it had ended at Ep 12, I would have been very satisfied with the short anime and its ending. The pace and the problems have felt a bit forced since, but I'm also hopeful there will be a clean resolution at the end.

I also love Egoist's style of music, (Psycho pass, Guilty Crown) and I also consider Psycho Pass a peasant surprise.

 

I'd say 12 is way too less for Sakurasou, but again, 24 is also clearly too many.... Oh well, I still love the show and I'm sure that I will watch until the very last second of it. The second ED was quite funny too, I shake my head with those guys after every episode and honestly. Its REALLY hard to do that with an HD800!

IMO Sakurasou isn't anywhere near as good as Toradora. The comedy relies too heavily on character archetypes (the tsukomi/straight man, the hyper-active girl, the sheltered air-head, etc). And the emotional impact is practically absent. That said, one thing it does do well (and probably its most redeeming feature) is the trials the characters go through as they try to figure out what they want to do with their lives, and the effort each character puts in to whatever it is they want to do. Its something that very few anime focus on beyond the typical "character worrying what to write on their career form" episode that most high school anime do.

 

Sakurasou's moe content is also much higher compared to Toradora for those who take issue with that sort of thing.

I have to agree with the lack of emotional impact and i'd say that's a common problem with JC's works including Toradora. Even Multi Season series like Shana and Zero no Tsukaima somewhat fails in building a strong connection between the audience and the characters which is, what I think, what causes the lack of emotional impact.The single exception I have is Ano Natsu de Matteru, that show made me feel like a stupid little boy just praying for the happiness of the characters.

This made me hope that the moe isn't too much of a hindrance for me. Will look into it, but probably now a low priority.
Honestly, I pity those who dropped the series just because of that.
Considering his previous works, it would be a bang for most people, but not so much to others that know how Gen Urobochi 'direct'. Or maybe it's just me. Hopefully he can still blow my mind. But that said, honestly I can't really see how it would end still.(or maybe that's just my hope and subconsciously I already knew).

Not drop.. On hold~ On hold. Shin sekai yori turned out to be AWESOME!

I'll say that some of the newest anime is just amazing. I'd fully recommend those who are fans of the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure manga, or just interested in but are scared of the old-ass art style, go and get the 2012 anime adaptation. And this is coming from a fanboy of the series. Just go watch the anime, it'll serve as a tremendously better entrance for newcomers and humongous fan service just to see one of the most truly awesome like-shounen manga animated to great perfection.

Other newer anime that I can wholeheratedly recommend is Psycho-Pass. A sci-fi utopian Minority Report-esque anime with one of the best, well-progressed, strong female protagonist in a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time in anime. Beware of a lot of literature references though.

One last recommendation that I can make is Shinsekai Yori. A great world-building anime marred slightly by a few animation stumbles and a wooden-at-times protagonist, yet I recommend to watch it just to see yet another post-apocalyptic Earth world-building, where humans developed psychic powers and deals with the everyday life of a serene post-war Earth with lots of dangerous intrigue. Don't be deterred by the childish looking characters, since the story spans up until adulthood.

 

Have to agree with your comments about the first two, JoJo's has been surprisingly amusing and true to the manga and Psycho Pass has to be my favorite anime series in many years due to interesting characters, world, and story.  I have been considering checking out Shinsekai Yori.  The childish character art turned me off when I saw the preview pics so I didn't start watching it, but reviews have been pretty positive about it.
