Just finished chapter 5 of Metroid!

Things are going a bit smoother than anticipated. They're doing an origin story instead of trying to follow one of the games, so there's nothing really to screw up.

The only thing I don't care about thus far, are Samus' generic sidekicks (they're not only generic, but it's odd seeing Samus with team mates).

Like I said earlier, I know about this manga, and how it's a non-canon origin story.

I already knew all that...

Sorry, I wasn't posting them to piss you off, I put a warning. Not all the pictures were of the Titans, I was just trying to post some images from the show. Sorry. And I also didn't know it was against forum policy.

I'm watching Date a Live, i guess. Will give impressions later.

I've heard some negative impressions on that one. Like, scores of 1/5-2.5/5 on Anime News Network. One of them even scored it as "guuuuhhhhh"...not sure about fan impressions, though. Those tend to be different...

I couldn't bring myself to finish the first episode... I got uninterested. Character designs are generic-ish and everything was show first explain later. Unfortunately what was going down just didn't grab me enough to care. Kinda expected as much when the first scene was literally the main guy's little sister's panties.

@Rocko52 Space quakes are destroying the world and the guy has to date the girl causing them to save the world.

Harem/fanservice shows aren't my thing, but I just watched both seasons of Rosario + Vampire, and I'm now slightly ashamed of myself for doing so.

Can anyone recommend Attack on Titan? Aside from the occasional long-running action show, I rarely watch anime while they're in-season, but this one has me intrigued.

@RevolverLink I'm not a fan of Harem. I just tried watching one and no nooooope. Rosario + Vampire seemed like something I really wouldn't enjoy either from what I saw.
I'm also starting to get interested in Attack on Titan. What is it? I'm not gonna be watching currently running anime this season anyways,

Im gonna watch a bit of attack on titan, sad that it's only on crunchy roll because every other time I was on there the video player was crap or I had to pay.
Edit:nevermind then, it actually being nice now...but the ad are annoying.

The only Harem I've enjoyed were the original Tenchi Muyo! series. They actually had plots, and great action & animation.

Every once in awhile, I'll try one out to see if it can catch that same Tenchi feeling, but nope :/

I think I mostly just watched it because I needed something to do.

While it was occasionally funny and Funimation tried their best with the dub, all of the things that bug me about many shows of its kind (embarrassing fanservice and wish-fulfillment, poor character development, contrived drama, meh art and animation, etc.) were still there. Oh well, at least I can say I gave something outside of my comfort zone a try. Just didn't work out.

Have you tried Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki or Tenchi Universe?
