It is honestly good, if you don't mind a few slow episodes. They're all really good, just kinda... moody. The first few are light on plot, but the 3rd episode alone is super bad-ass.
Well, the whole show is sort of slow. Not that it's a bad thing. I just wish they had stuck with the story-per-episode setup they had at the start, since the "main story" sucked anyway. Oh well, at the very least it was one of the few shows with half-decent art that I've seen recently.
I'm waiting for the Natsu no Arashi 2's last episode, should be out next week. Excited to see how the story turns out. Also planning to watch the last chapter of Kara no Kyoukai sometime this week, on Christmas maybe?
That, and picked up all of Ayakashi - Samurai Horror Tales and Monty Python from the library,

Yeah, the main story is basically just Dio getting his ass kicked, and then realizing he's a whiny bitch with no real goal. Go Boss though, smartening him up. "You can't even protect the one's around you!"
What a charismatic guy. I'm gonna finish the show today. Episodes 17-24!
But you know all he's thinking is Please still have a vagina. Please still have a vagina. Please still have a vagina. Please still have a vagina. Please still have a vagina.
I'm starting to doubt Del Rey, they haven't even got a page up for the novels on their site, and they said that they'd begin releasing them this year. Hopefully they don't decide to pull a Viz/Seven Seas and drop it.
Just make sure you watch the FIRST season and NOT the other two, because the sequels are done by a different company and will make you very very sad.
Huh? What're you talking about? Minami-ke only had two seasons: The original and Okaeri.
Original (by Doumu) -> Okawari (by asread) -> Okaeri -> Betsubara OVA
Given that season 2 and on are made by the same ppl who made Shuffle!, it's not that surprising that it's pretty bad.
EDIT: Just DLd the TO OVA, took a peek. YES! Finally cel-shaded 3D that doesn't look like ass (as opposed to, say, Appleseed or that horrible .hack movie). Will be watching the awesomeness tonight, gotta go find a big flatscreen somewhere ^______^

You should be denying everything except season 1 existence because of how horrible it is then. Okaeri may have been slightly better-written than Okawari, but the poor direction and the fact that it looked like it was drawn by middle-schoolers makes it no better.

Just finished Darker than Black 2, Umineko and Seitokai no Ichizon. I...actually feel rather depressed now that Seitokai's over; I had incredibly low expectations for it when the season started, yet towards the end I didn't want it to be over.
