watch no game no life first, because it's definitely the stronger show, but if you run out of stuff to watch, nanana's buried treasure is worth at least checking out

i'm not really good at reviewing shit, so read the crunchyroll reviews, in general they're what i'm trying to say

- it's not a supernatural show. it's only supernatural insofar as the artifacts are concerned, their powers are real, the dead girl is more a plot point to get the ball rolling than anything
- all the characters are assholes and/or criminals. all of them.
- show is weirdly over-the-top, but pretends that it is not, it often asks you to suspend your disbelief for no reason other than it simply can (why does it need to take place on an artificial island, can't it just take place on a normal island?)
- if you liked the first season of zero's familiar, you may want to watch this, tsundere loli and all

it's not a high budget super-intelligent mature show, but it's a pretty solid mid-budget show, and having watched up through episode 8 now, going to have to put it in the top 5 spring anime despite a lot of people kind of ignoring it, little bit of comedy, little bit of action, little bit of romance, little bit of secret organization business. if you watch it with really high expectations and a super critical eye, whatever; but if you watch it with low expectations, you might be surprised

iunno, like i said, i'm bad at this sort of thing, but i'd give it a chance at least especially if you're just checking out spring 2014 anime in general

Kawai Complex is bad
Comic artist and his assistants is terribad

I'm currently reading "The Gamer" and this just made my day: http://www.mangahere.co/manga/the_gamer/c049/21.html

Direct reference to RO's Super Novice :)

The premise of the story is the main character lives in the real world -- well, you're typical "real world" where ordinary people are unaware that there are people with super powers. The super power of the main character is that he has the properties of an MMO character. He can level up, has stat points, hp/mp, etc.

Overlord: http://kissanime.com/Anime/Overlord

Definitely recommend both!

just read "The Meteor," survival manga, i liked that the main character is a bit of a psychopath sometimes because it's some sort of unspoken law that in survival manga: only uber white-knight types survive and they have an ultimate showdown with someone mentally deranged before finally triumphing

however that's about all that was good about it, the art was okay, the dialogue wasn't too over-the-top, but it started very scattered and poorly, the pacing was really whacked up, and the premise was just sort of weird and stupid

Shimoneta good anime

I find it a little bizarre that it's about japan and not america though.
