    So it’s yaoi-fuel and moe, adorable girls and big breasts? Wow, so diverse >.>

      Such is the world of anime… not that there’s anything wrong with any of those things in the right amounts, but I totally get your meaning here. Shows start to just blend together after a while.There are plenty of other things premiering this season/simulcasting though, so I’m sure there’s got to be some new and unique show out there somewhere!

  • Wish Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero had garnered a second season. Hard to watch the simulcast: many times a show is shown mid series, and a series you get into is just dropped, and others you have no interest in never end. I suppose such is the life of Anime.

      Liking anime is suffering. Then getting ecstatically happy, then suffering again.
