I'm hearing a lot of great things about Haibane Renmei, so I'm going to check that one out.

Hey, me too! It takes a couple of episodes to truly start appreciating just how brilliant this show is. Especially since some of the most brilliant skits are in later episodes. The humor at first can be an interesting task to process but once you curl up to the shows form and start riding its wave the amount of funny this show is cannot be described in words.

The amusement park skit in episode 12...I died of laughter.

I am thinking once I complete Gintama, maybe Monster, GTO, Shakugan no Shana, or maybe I'll pick back up Steins Gate....

Does that anime follow any real plot or is just different skits every episode?

And I'm probably gonna be watching either Gintama or My Little Busters next. Gintama is kinda intimidating considering it's at 200 + episodes.

It follows a single time line incredibly loosely, as in there are occasions and circumstances in which some things continue on being because of an episode (a character enrolling in school for the first time), or returning concepts happen and you wouldn't get it unless you'd seen a previous episode.

Aside from these minor cases you could probably watch the series backward and it wouldn't be any different, but obviously I don't recommend that.

Each episode is sort of a collection of skits in the daily life of a handful of returning characters, sometimes one of them, sometimes more than 1. Occasionally there will be a skit that is completely unrelated to the cast, using random characters who have no names (and are not given names in 30 seconds you see them) to etch out a quick joke. Sometimes there are random skits just meant to be cute or even depressing sometimes, neither funny nor cute, though these are only here and there. That's the best I can think to describe it but it really must be watched to be understood. It's an amazing time killer anime, or an amazing anime for watching in your "anime cooldown" time for when your other shows are all caught up to date.

Ah, I see. Appreciate the explanation. I don't know if you've seen Working!! (or Wagnaria!! whatever people call it lol) but is it sort of like that anime?

I've completed Working!!. You could say it's pretty similar to that. I would actually say it's a fraternal twin to Azumanga Daioh. If you've seen that anime and like it even the least bit, My Ordinary Life is almost the exact same formula.

Working!! actually follows a bit of a trail what with the whole Inami-chan and her trying to improve the punching thing, and the transparent romance between her and Takanashi, and then there are other things that are also similar in importance. My Ordinary life has pretty much zero main narrative. It's skit to skit, different situations all unrelated to one another (if only through an easter egg mention), with no connection to one another to the point where you don't even know if they are all happening even in the same day or not. It's disconnected that way. Very funny, and incredibly entertaining. They over-do everything and it's wonderful.

I've promised a friend to give "Avatar: The Last Airbender" a chance and at least watch until episode 12. She says it really starts picking up around then, so we'll see! :)

Also going to start "Kokoro Connect". I saw it was recommended in an earlier post in the thread and it looks interesting.

Hmmm I see. Yeah that's what I liked about Working!! though. I was hesitant on watching it because in the reviews on crunchy people said it 'didn't have much of a plot' but I jumped in anyways. I REALLY enjoyed it and the trail it has is what made me like it even more. Soooo I'll give My Ordinary Life a try (I love anime comedy) but I may not like it if it's just a collection of skits. We will see.

The first season of ATLA does take a little while to pick up, but it's totally worth it. ATLA is one of my favorite shows and I've watched it all the way through twice, as well as watching some episodes more than once. It deserves the praise it receives. Just stay away from the live action movie.

I also want to watch Kokoro Connect and it's on my to-watch list.

Highly recommend.

Kokoro Connect is an excellent anime if you're in to romance. It has a perfect injection of thrill/suspense added because of the situation that is brought down on them, and it makes for an extremely fulfilling ride. There will be feels!

Also, in other news, Inaba is voiced by the sexiest sounding female VA in the business Miyuki Sawashiro, so you get to listen to her talk all day, which should be anyone's dream come true. Her voice has the power to make me sit through an entire anime purely because she is voice acting in it, even if the show itself frustrates me *cough kiminitodoke *cough. Trust me, you will love Inaba.

Important to note is that the final 4 episodes of the series are not on crunchyroll, so you will have to seek other means to see them should you commit to this series.

It looks like CR is missing the last 4 episodes though. Otherwise, sounds like just the kind of show I love!
