Fall 2011–First Impressions

Mhmmm I owe you guys an apology since I wasn’t able to post anything for the past couple of months and  you already know the reason is school ,school and school. I still owe you reviews for the spring and summer shows and I’ll work on them little by little and most probably I won’t review all the shows I’ve watched during those seasons instead, I’ll just review shows that I think would need some reviewing. My vacation is coming to an end so expect that those reviews would be released slowly. I’ll make it a goal to review 1 show per week (oh gosh wish me luck *smacks self because of lack of time management skills*).
So far the shows this season is really good specially with much anticipated shows like Fate/Zero, Guilty Crown, Shana and Persona 4. Still, there’s these shows that seems interesting at first but when you watch you’ll find it disappointing but surprisingly from all the shows I’ve picked up there are only few shows I have issues with.
I’ve listed the shows I’m following this season and it’s arranged according to my rating of the shows so far. 

Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon
Mobile Suit Gundam AGE
C³ CubexCursedxCurious
Ben-To
Shakugan no Shana III Final
Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai
UN-GO
Persona 4 The Animation
Guilty Crown
Fate/Zero
Mirai Nikki

Along with its own personal army, Hellsing has secret weapons. Alucard, an incredibly powerful vampire, has been controlled by Hellsing for years. It is unclear how he feels about being a servant to the Hellsing family, but he certainly enjoys his job as a vampire exterminator. Seras is a fledgling vampire and former police woman. Although reluctant to embrace her new self, she is a valued member of the organization. Integra Hellsing, the current leader, is usually fully capable of fulfilling her duty, but lately, vampire activity has been on the rise. Unfortunately, the cause is more alarming than anything she could have imagined. A group long thought dead has been plotting in secret since their apparent destruction over 50 years ago. Plotting to plunge England, and perhaps the entire world, into war.
