    Gen Urobuchi, the guy behind Psycho-Pass and Madoka.

    Goddamn, Gatsby, Urobuchi did Psycho Pass and Madoka.

    And Fate/Zero isn't a shounen.

    He also did Aldnoah.Zero, so he definitely has the capacity to suck. What Fate/Stay was to Above, Aldnoah is rapidly becoming for me. It's had two good episodes so far but at this point there's no way S1 won't be considered an overall failure for me.

    The only thing he did for Aldnoah is come up with the idea.

    Welp, guess this just became a priority over Hunter X Hunter then.

    Even though I'm probably the most vocal about HxH, that's probably a good call. Especially considering your tastes in anime.

    I'm just naturally weary of animes that are dudes fighting eachother in a fantasy setting. One can be great now and then, but I think I may be becoming spoiled after nearly 70 episodes of LoGH. That show is just everything I truly want in anime and I just don't want to hop from that into what is basically a glorified kids show. Not saying Zero is that, but the idea that it may be has kept me away. I think after all the time I invested in Soul Eater and how the bad the payoff was, I'm done with all these Naruto style shonens where it's just all an excuse for cool 10 battle long fight scenes.
    When you say "how bad the payoff was", you're referring to the spinoff right? Because I remember you saying that you liked Soul Eater...or am I wrong about that?

    I'm sure it's well done and all.

    I dunno though, Ippo was a shounen and it was excellent. Sadly, New Challenger and Rising have been such huge disappointments. The ironic part was that once Ippo won his title, his character basically entered stasis. He has been the least interesting part of his own show for two seasons now.

    I meant it had a terrible ending. I really liked Soul Eater, but they ended it way earlier than the magna ended, so all these story threads were abruptly ended in an attempt to bring closure to the characters and it just felt cheap and unconvincing. I still enjoyed that show overall, but it should've ran as long as it needed to or not at all.

    Soul Eater Not felt like an even bigger slap in the face in retrospect. They couldn't give SE a new season, but they took its brand name, and butchered its awesome universe to run some shitty yuri spinoff? It was just poor handling all around.

    I'm not a big fan of Soul Eater, but I still don't understand how they arrived at the whole Soul Eater NOT! thing.

    I've never read the manga, but I do remember the ending feeling sudden... That was a letdown .

    I didn't either, but I knew it had run longer and also had some pretty big deviations story wise. It was a fun show, I enjoyed most of my time with it, but after such a huge time investment, it was sad to basically see them be like LOL WE RAN OUT OF MONEY, THE END.

    tldr: last two shounens I watched fizzled out, broke muh heart and I'm afraid of getting hurt again bb

    Heh, that Dandy episode... what a mind fuck. I loved the Grease references, Watanabe is such a huge fan of western culture. You don't get to see that often in today's anime. Kinda wished they would've focused more on the music though.
