Finished the first season of Owari no Seraph.

Was playing on my 3DS on the side, so that might have helped me sit through it. Well, I guess that implies too negative of an appraisal -- it's not bad, I guess, but it's not much of anything (aside from being a fujoshi's wet dream). It took the slow route to establishing its scenario, so little of any substance actually occurred throughout the season. It was never offensively bad and sitting through it wasn't really agonizing (dunno if that would have been any different if I wasn't playing games), but it never actually put all of its cards on the table. From all accounts, the second season has more meat (although it's not the actual conclusion since the manga is unfinished), so I guess I'll see if that stands up. With anime especially, it's not uncommon for the smaller scale exposition bits of the story to be better than the rising action simply because a show was unable to live up to its potential (and it's a much harder to actually play a story out than it is to set one up, and honestly, it's less fun too), and I dunno if I can vouch for this one.

Addendum: Sometimes the screencaps I take and their names are a pretty good indicator of what I'm paying attention to with the shows I watch. Usually in series starting from 0. Here's some choice screencap series:

"don't worry, they're not blood related!" (8)
"my vampire boyfriend can't be this horrible!" (12)
"vampires are sexy" (18 -- all of these pictures are of men, of course)

also about 20 pictures each of both ferid (not including everything in the vampire boyfriend chain) and mikaela. that about sums this show up

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

got a plan to watch four 12-episode anime this week. owari no seraph season 1 was the first. season 2 will wait for a bit, though -- the remaining three are ben-to, cute high earth defense club love and dai-shogun, in that order. ben-to and earth defense club love are both pretty solid from what i've seen of each, and dai-shogun is legendarily awful, so the remainder of this schedule should be pretty interesting.
