Durarara (8/10) - refreshingly unique opening with catchy drum beats. So far the best anime of this season I've watched. Definitely has a lot of potential to be very interesting. Watched 5 episodes, waiting for the next.

Dance in the Vampire Bund (6/10) - ugh, the first episode was really slate and boring. The character designs were outrageously unattractive. The tone of each character sounded flat and unexciting. I like the interesting story and pacing of where it's heading. I recommend watching the first few episodes before dropping this anime. Finished 2 episodes.

Name of the series: Durarara!!
Episodes watched: 5/24
Brief comment: Very confusing. At first I thought this anime was going nowhere, but then people compared it to Baccano! So I gave Baccano! a try. I absolutely loved it. I saw similarities between the two, therefore I'm pretty sure I'm going to love this show too, I hope.
Rating: 8.5/10



Name of the series: Ladies Versus Butlers
Episodes watched: 5/???
Brief comment: I like the main character, other than that, I think this anime is one of those typical harem/ecchi animes.
Rating: 7/10



Name of the series: Hanamaru Kindergarten
Episodes watched: 5/12
Brief comment: Really cute. But Anzu sometimes bothers me with her love for Tsuchi. O_O
Rating: 8/10




Name of the series: Dance in the Vampire Bund
Episodes watched: 5/12
Brief comment: Decent, I don't like the animation though. I like the manga so much better.

Ladies Versus Butlers
5 episodes watched
It definitely exemplifies an ecchi-oriented anime; don't foresee any substantial character development, as with most ecchi or harem genres, but the animation is vibrant and it keeps me amused. 7.5/10

Theres a thread similar to this, but not sure if this would be counted as a duplicate or not because of the word review... http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-602245/which-recently-2010-anime-you-like-best/

Your list is missing acouple, and Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 3 Owari Naki Unmei is only an OVA not a series...

I had typed out one with reviews of all the ones I'm watching, but accidentally closed the page... I cbfed retying, so ill just leave a link with the ones I'm watching, episodes seen and ratings:

Name of the series: Dance in the Vampire Bund.
Episodes watched: All that have been fan subbed already.
Brief comment: Manga was better, but the anime is still enjoyable. Definitely better than a lot of what's out there.
Rating: 8/10 mostly because it's an anime with a Werewolf as a main character. 10/10 on the badasstitude scale.

Name of the series: Chu-bra
Episodes watched: All currently fansubbed
Brief comment: Funny, cute. I'm really enjoying it. I didn't think it'd be that good since the description is just about a girl who likes underwear and wants to form a club about it.
Rating: 7/10

Name of the series: Ladies vs Butlers
Episodes watched: All currently fansubbed
Brief comment: Funny, ecchi. Keeps me entertained.
Rating: 7/10

Name of the series: Omamori Himari
Episodes watched: All current
Brief comment: Bit of humor, bit ecchi, bit action. It isn't much different than other anime like it, but I liked the manga and it's sticking pretty close to that source.
Rating: 7/10

Name of the series: Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu
Episodes watched: All current
Brief comment: Funny as hell. It's not that original. The whole summon thing is never explained. The characters are pretty much the ones you'd expect to see in a romantic/comedy, however this one is also a parody of that genre; so the characters are taken to extremes. This one has made me laugh the most out of all the newer ones I've seen.

So Ra No Wo To.
3 episodes watched.
This series is quite a suprise(don't know good/bad yet). After reading the synopsis, I had a thought it was going to be a war series. But it turns out to be a slice of life anime. The one problem with it is the pacing. at times it feels like nothing at all is happening. Still, worth a look.
7.5/10

Chu Bra.
4 episodes watched.
Sweet and funny at times. But the whole concept does feel a little weird. They're 12 for [email protected] sake.
6/10.

Cobra The animation.
1 episode.
AWFUL, the animation is "classic" and that doesn't always mean good. I didn't like it in the 80's, and it's not much better now.
2/10

I checked that thread before. It's not at all similiar compare to mines. His thread compare people's favourite animes in a simple scale. Mine is more detailed orientated so more can express their opinions without being bombared by other people's ideas. Thanks for telling me.

Well fuck you for giving up after 2 episodes.


I didn't say I gave up after 2 episodes. I said I finished 2 episodes of it.

Dance in a Vampire Bund is a fantastic anime it's really how I pictured Mina Tepes. It's gonna rock 2010! :p It has blown me away from episode to episode when they press on the story. At first i thought it was standard lollicon but it's raw and pure vampire stuff, with very dark sides of the story but it always lights it up with good interesting dialogues. Let's say this vampire has much more in her than I had imagined. 9/10


Baka to test to Shokanjou is a super comedy and cool ideas. Chibi power and genius prevail in a bit of a fantasy/competition theme with awesome summoning system :p! 8.5/10
