And I finally watched Puella Magi Madoka Magica last week after hearing for a really long time that it was surprisingly awesome. Holy crap, have you guys seen this show? It's... It's really cool. Also, I can confidently say that if you're the kind of person who would assume you'd hate the show based on that opening theme video I just embedded, you are probably the type of person who should watch this show.
Anyway, brief reviews of what I've watched over the past couple months.
Sword Art Online: I've complained about this enough that people here who care probably know I didn't care for it. Beautiful animation, and the first arc was definitely enjoyable (though flawed), but geez does that second arc go TOTALLY off the rails. What a train wreck.
2/5 (Would have been a 3/5 if it had quit while it was ahead.)
Fullmetal Alchemist: It's good! It's... It's not perfect, especially by the end, but it's good! I liked it a lot, and from what I hear I really need to watch Brotherhood now.
Puella Magi Madoka Magica: Maybe my favorite of the batch? I don't know. It's a really cool show. It reminds me of Cabin in the Woods in the way it tricks you into thinking it's one kind of show, and then pulls the rug out from under you early on, but on top of that I really do think it's a well done series. I... I liked it a lot.
SEE, YOU GUYS?! I CAN SAY NICE THINGS ABOUT ANIME WHEN THEY AREN'T SAO! Oh, who am I kidding, it won't make a difference.
