OK, I'm shallow. I'm enjoying Free! a lot. It's silly and very cliched, but the addition of the last major member of the cast (going from the OP and ED) was a lot of fun. And it's so pretty!
I also watched the first two episodes of Gin no Sagi, the anime adapted from the manga by the artist of FMA, about a nerdy kid from Sapporo attending an agricultural high school just because it's a boarding school. Haven't learned much of his backstory yet, but it's pretty amusing to see the city boy learn the joys of farming and animal husbandry. Oh my, I couldn't do it. I wish he wasn't so fixated on the cute girl because his group members are way more interesting to me, but I'm along for the ride (for now).
I also watched most of the first episode of Makai Ouji, but it didn't do much for me. The main character has a very high opinion of himself, which right now is more irritating than, say, amusing right now. I might try another episode to see if it gets any better. I'm hoping he gets some humility knocked into him by the demons and he becomes less of an ass. *shrugs* Pretty demons and fighting! Random Biblical characters invoked! British nobility! I'm not against the concept, just the main character.
Majestic Prince is still going strong. I really like this series, and I really enjoy the mecha fight scenes. I am still not that fond of the new pilot (as well as the boy-crazy one), but I think my fondness of the main character is overriding the things I don't like. Also, the narrative is interesting. Not sure where it's going...
