I enjoyed AnoHana, but I will say this: any time I hear “noitaminA”, I think “pretentious, overhyped bullshit”. AnoHana was an exception (at least IMO), but nonetheless, it sickens me how people go on about these shows being the most intellectual of intellectual anime just because of what fucking block they aired on.

The first episode also gave us a few other things worth looking for (the episode’s title being exactly like that of the first manga chapter, Tuxedo Mask not throwing a single rose, …

    Hell, we don’t even need all of them introduced. Just wait until Mars shows up (I expect in episode 3), then the differences between the manga and the first anime should be more readily apparent.

  • Sailor Moon Crystal Quite Bedazzling:
    S (series 3) was widely regarded as the best series. I believe it’s SuperS (series 4) where the divergences from the manga started to become more of an issue (partly due to SuperS being mostly filler and Sailor Stars outright pissing Takeuchi off with the changes made to the Starlights).
