I'm so excited for Kancolle. I had initially set my expectations really low, but having seen snippets of the leaked pre-screening camrip, I'm starting to think that Garupan level isn't an impossibility.

Also pretty hyped for Ansatsu Kyoushitsu as well, having marathoned the manga this summer.

Other shows in no particular order: Yurikuma, Saenai Heroine, Graffiti, DRRR2, A/Z2, IM@S CG, JoJo, Rolling Girls, and Maria.

I really enjoyed the first episode of iM@S (2011) TV series, and the first episode of Cinderella Girls follows up with a great opening of its own.

I love how visually pleasing this whole episode is.

Disclaimer: I also loved ep1 and ep2.

I'm not sure what it is precisely, but it seems a lot of people are going in with certain expectations due to the director and coming out disappointed because it doesn't meet those expectations. As someone who's never seen an Ikuhara show before and thus went in without any expectations I'm loving every moment of it; I see the criticisms and can only think 'well, that's just what the series is like', and feel people's expectations based on earlier works leaves them unable to appreciate Yuri Kuma Arashi's style. That's what it feels like to me, anyways.

>As someone who's never seen an Ikuhara show before
I'd almost recommend stopping Yurikuma and watching Utena or Penguindrum right now. They both had far better openings than this show, and your first Ikuhara is usually the one you'll like the most.
>> No.50210  
>>50203
I also think you should watch Utena and Penguindrum first. YKA feels a lot like a combination of both those shows when it comes to symbolism and story construction, though I'd say so far YKA has been making better use of flashbacks than Penguindrum.

I feel like the show has an interesting premise, but the last 2 episodes have been kind of repetitive, and the protagonist is starting to come off as an incompetent moron. Still going to watch it to the end though, since it's at least something a bit different from the usual fare, and the director has been quite successful with his other works. I'm expecting it to pick up after a bit.

>but the last 2 episodes have been kind of repetitive
But isn't that the whole point? I feel ep3 really demonstrated the power of repetition by making slight exceptions to demonstrated patterns (for example, the transformation scene); because you expect it to be the same, it has much more impact when there's even a slight difference.

Saying YKA is repetitive is like saying Sharnoth is repetitive. Yes, it is, but it's artistic use of repetition and the fact that it's completely the same is the whole point.

Sure, you can take it as an artistic choice, but I still would call it a mediocre one and personally would've enjoyed it more if they'd used the screen time for something else.

I guess some of its always going to come to personal preference though. I also didn't much care for Endless Eight/Nisemonogatari/that one rom-com where the protagonist is pursued by a cute girl but he refuses to acknowledge her love and they make the same jokes but no relationship progress every week.

Death Parade is very decent, even though it has yet to be any better than Death Billiards. I sure hope it doesn't run out of ideas. The show hinges on the believability of the characters and I can easily see that being mishandled. Ep 1 was almost too cheesy with the girl going crazy at the end but I decided to press on. Thankfully it was satisfactorily addressed in ep 2.

Death Billiards is just one episode, it was part of the Young Animator Training Project. Just give it a watch if you're at all interested, it looks great and the storytelling is good. Death Parade is a series based on the same format as Death Billiards. It also fleshes out the show's setting and recurring character.

The show focuses more on the psychological aspect than on the games themselves. Don't go in expecting Kaiji.
