i totally agree, a light comedy with fanservice spice is totally better than a season of loli~moe~kya~hell

What a pity, only 14 episodes. Buy the BDs my friends, so god will bestow more Rio upon us.

what's so bad about this anime? It's not just pointless fanservice anime. Light ecchi with funny gambling. better this than more K-On and other moeshit.

12 Episode Madoka is disappointing, but expected. I can't remember the last time SHAFT did a 24 episode series (it was either Moon Phase or Pani Poni, both released around 2004/2005). Of course, this being SHAFT, there's a high possibility of a second season this year if they don't finish it properly this time around.

Not commenting on the main news story, because everyone expected it.

Better than pointless moeblob seasons

But K-ON was actually better than this crap LOL

It's good to see that Gosick is 24 episodes long. I can't really say that I'm looking forwards to this extra episode, but if I somehow end up finishing the series, I'll probably watch it.

Not fun.
I hope it can still have a completely fulfilling and non-rushed plot, or at least earn a second season... because it deserves it.

As long as they finish the series well, I don't mind it having 12 episodes. But another season or more episodes would be nice if they don't have much closure after the 12 episodes.

Cmon give us more of a good show instead of this flaming pile of fanservice crap. Please Japan?

Jan 28, 2011 1:15 PM by FatherAnderson

more pointless crap?
what a disgusting show...

You people should stop talking about Madoka and other stuff and discuss the news about Rio. A mod will delete your posts if you don't stop.

OT: Yeah, 13 episodes for the 13 dealer cards. Again, not surprised that there is a special and not that excited about it. Better catch up I suppose, I'm behind by two episodes but I'm lacking motivation to watch :|

EDIT: Dropped.

i think it would be funny if for the fanservice anime they had a super serious Ep as the extra XD

Madoka Magica only has 12 episodes, another good anime cut short

I hope we get to see Rio and possibly Rina naked in the special with some possible yuri.

Gosick has 24 episode which is good news

Jan 28, 2011 9:00 AM by Hoppy

I wonder why crap anime is 2 times longer than good ones... :/

also, on Rio topic: will we get to see her naked in that special episode after all?

Jan 28, 2011 8:06 AM by seishi-sama

unless IF going to be a rio-rina yuri type ep (yea hey we're still wondering that GOD MY OH on that bed on ep.4 scene is about.)
