Spring 2008 anime impressions

Allison & Lillia Episode 1:
I like it. :D The first episode doesn't exactly blow me away, but it was nice to watch and certainly has potential to be a fun adventure. The BGM was pretty and I'm currently in love with the OP theme. Certain aspects of it really did remind me of Keiichi Sigsawa's style. This is probably my favorite of the season so far.

Kyou Kara Maou! Season 3 Episode 1:
Wow, nostalgia. Nothing's really changed since the last season and it put me in a good mood seeing all the characters back again with their usual antics (Yuuri freaking out over the idea of Greta growing up and getting married lol). Well, except for one thing... Wolfram's replacing Yuuri as Maou?! WTF! O_O I'll have to keep watching just to find out what the hell is going on...

The Tower of DRUAGA -the Aegis of URUK- Episode 1:
I wasn't planning on watching this at all. But then I saw people on 4chan talking about it and they seemed to find it hilarious. Plus the studio is actually subbing and streaming this for free, so why not, right? It's totally legal!

Well, this might possibly be the 'unexpected favorite' that I was looking for. Possibly. It's definitely unexpected, and I did find the episode pretty amusing (this part cracked me up the most- random streaming comments a la Nicovideo FTW). I'd describe it as a cross between .hack//sign and the first episode of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya...with a Gurren Lagann parody thrown in near the end. I have no idea what the rest of the show is going to be like (WTF at the OP animation??), but so far, I am very entertained.

However...it's GONZO. The first episode of Romeo x Juliet was awesome too, and look how that turned out. So I'll try not to have high expectations. But I am curious to see the next episode.

As for others...after finally seeing the preview for Toshokan Sensou, I might not be watching it after all. It kinda looks too...military for my tastes. I might give at least the first episode a try, but for right now I'm looking forward to Kaiba more. I don't have a lot of time to spare to be watching anime this month anyway.
