I REALLY REALLY like SHAFT. While no KyoAni fanboy (Clannad, Air, & Kanon are not my genres) I think I slowly find myself becoming a huge SHAFT geek with each new series I get from them.
Wow Druaga Sword of Uruk is pretty cool will be continuing onto season 2. Kurokami looks exciting and interesting so will probably continue that. Maria+Holic is made of win and is only 2 episodes young.
Akkikan isn't my thing will probably wait a couple episodes before dropping it though.
Still waiting on a Viper's Creed release and haven't caught up on the last season of Birdy Decode but thats still up in the air too.
As much as the Japanese like baseball and baseball anime and as much as Americans love baseball it seems that American anime fans don't like baseball so I am not gonna hold my breath for a group to pick Major Season 5 up any time soon.
Ride Back episode 01 was brilliant, you should really check it out :D
