Back to anime
I intended to follow more shows from the current season. However, I find myself watching only these, "No. 6," "Mawaru Penguindrum," "Natsume Yujincho," and "Usagi Drop." "Blue Exorcist" is one I've dropped. I try to catch up whenever I can't find anything else to watch. "Tiger and Bunny" was funny, but I didn't keep up with it, I'm not sure why. "Mystic Archives of Dantalian" is one I really wanted to like, but I can't get past episode one. I even fell asleep one of the the times I tried to watch it. "No. 6" keeps me wondering what's going to happen. I usually like the dystopian future type of story which the show is all about. The uncomfortable-to-watch relationship between the two lead characters give it another dimension that I find enjoyable. "Natsume Yujincho" is a tear-jerker this season. It gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling after you watch it. "Usagi Drop" is beautifully colored and has a relaxed and innocent feel. The relationship between the girl and her guardian is sweetly depicted in simply plotted episodes. Now that I've written this, four shows seems plenty to follow.
