  1. Is it just me, or is everyone else getting file not found error?

  2. Fixed. Thanks for coming and listening.

  3. Someone please tell me when/if kevo hears this. I for one really don’t want to miss the fireworks.

  4. Both of the Winter highlights are from the fall season of last year? That’s just sad… and incredibly hilarious.

  5. @MCAL

    Besides Chihayafuru S2, I’m hard pressed to think of a winter exclusive show that I’d consider all that good or notable unfortunately.

  6. @Pebble I doubt he is ever gonna listen to this.

    @MCAL Yeah, anime beginning in the winter itself ranged from only not bad to extremely divisive in terms of quality.

  7. You guys had me laughing all throughout your discussion on Oregairu. Great job.

  8. You could say Shin Sekai Yori was the highlight of the season.

    Maouyuu was disappointing, but I didn’t really hate it.

    Side note: Gen Urobuchi only personally wrote two episodes of Gargantia but he oversaw the whole thing as the main writer. I suppose it’s good he tried to do something different even if the results weren’t the best.

    Other than that…eh, I thought you guys were a little too harsh. I’d give Valvrave a 5/10 at least. Even past the controversial event, the show still had enjoyable goofy stuff (a bit of drama doesn’t negate that). The tone is still appropriate for the ridiculousness of the content.
