I'm lacking the inspiration to watch anything since finishing all of the cat-centric episodes of Sketchbook - full colorS, which are hilarious. I'd be working on Kurau and Nodame Cantabile if I were watching something though.

I recently watched through all of Nodame. I really liked it despite it's silliness and shonen sports like plot line. It was something fun and different.

I watched the first couple eps of Kurau but there was nothing about it that really made me want to watch more.

Gyabo! Nodame Cantabile was great fun and we should try to get it in whenever it comes out. Even though it's a bit shoujo-esque, I think a non-shoujo audience can still enjoy the show. And our schedule could always use more shoujo-esqueness. :) Besides, the classical music in the soundtrack just makes the show that much more awesome.
All glory to the Hypnotoad!

Nodame Cantabile is the most awesome thing ever.

SRSLY.

That is all.

Honestly, I enjoyed Honey and Clover much more than I am enjoying Nodame. The animation is in the same style and done by the same guys, I think.

From the NYCC Avatar panel:

It's delayed even more, to July now. The finale is indeed 2 hours long (4 episodes). So, don't expect new episodes for a while. I'd also suspect that the book about the finale will be delayed as well.

Still, they showed an awesome finale trailer in the same style as the season 3 trailer.

Current season--
Code Geass R2: Enough said. Code Geass has quickly become my all-time favorite series. I stayed up until 6am last week just waiting for the raw torrent to be posted on TokyoTosho.
Macross Frontier: It's Macross. It looks really pretty. All is good. Nothing to complain about the story - but so far there's nothing too special.
Tower of Druaga: It's Gonzo. It's...strange. Got this old school RPG style.

Plan to watch this season
Too many...
Chico - Heir to the Phantom Thief (aka Nijuu mensou no musume)
Zettai Karen Children
Library Wars
Special A
Wagaya no Oinarisama
Nabari no ou
Allison & Lillia: From the creator of Kino's Journey :D

Just finished
True Tears: I spent two days at Steve's place in New Orleans marathoning through this and shouting at the computer screen. Two thumbs up, even though I wasn't completely satisfied with the ending...
Clannad: a Key + Kyoto Animation show is ALWAYS good.

I believe so. Nodame was much less... serious? Plus, I was able to connect more with Honey and Clover (Takemoto ;_;) than I could with Nodame.

I'd put a list up of what I was watching, but you guys would wonder what the hell I was doing watching all of them, especially since I'm currently in med school. :P

You are both LAME. Honey and Clover is stupid and boring. And depressing. Nodame Cantabile is HAPPY.

(Also, why does the main love interest in Honey and Clover look like an 8 year old girl? )

One of my best friends from high school (she's Asian and 20 yrs. old now) is 4'8" and looks very, very young (as in, no older than 12). I didn't think Hagu was that odd because I know someone IRL like that.

Honey and Clover also has The Morita Factor and, like Nnaemeka said, Takemoto. These are pretty big pluses for me. And I know I watched the Twister scene at least 4 times.
