Half-assed reviews in alphabetical fansubbing group order... ('cause that's how I see the files listed)

Via a.f.k.:
The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
Honestly, I didn't watch the first episode. It was... odd. I'll go back to it at some point. Starting from the second episode... mmm, the plot seems original - one high school boy, one very strange high school girl who has no interest in anyone, unless they're an alien, ESPer, or something of that sort. She drags aforementioned boy into creating a brand new club called SOS... something or other. And erm... yeah. Will continue watching to see where it's going.
Categories: Comedy, possibly sci-fi, High school
Episodes released: 3
Am I going to follow this? Probably. I want to see where it's going.

Via aarinfantasy-KissSub:
Princess Princess
Take an all boys school, and a concept of uh.. bringing joy into the lives of fellow classmates by crossdressing. And you'll have Princess Princess. Where the prettiest freshmen (originally two, now three, as they're joined by yet another victim) are given the job of dressing up as a pretty girl to smile and encourage their classmates. Art and story reminds me a bit of Sukisyo.
Categories: High school, guys crossdressing, comedy
Episodes released: 2
Am I going to follow this? Yeah.

Via AnimeU:
Disgaea
Mmm, demon prince, apprentice angel who's been given the job to assassinate the demon lord (aforementioned demon prince's father...)... mostly comedy.
Categories: Fantasy, comedy
Episodes released: 2
Am I going to follow this? Probably.. just for laughs, maybe.

Via AonE-AnY:
Ah! My Goddess - Sorezore no Tsubasa
Err, new season of AMG. Same pace as before, a moderate-slow, with the usual humor.
Episodes released: 2
Categories: Fantasy, comedy
Am I going to follow this? Probably, only 'cause I have the first season...

Via ASource:
.Hack//Roots
Yet another .Hack series. Erm, not going to follow this. Don't know where it's going. Never really been a fan of the .Hack series, aside from the music.

Via Doremi:
Simoun
Odd flying machines, female-only pilots, strange attacking methods.
Episodes released: 1
Categories: Sci-fi?
Am I going to follow this? Ehh... just long enough to see if it gets more interesting.

Via Froth-Bite:
Magical Pokan
15 minute episodes, about four princess who, uh, get transported into the human world. One is an android, one is a witch, one is a werewolf, one is a vampire. And there's assorted amusements. And some fanservice.
Episodes released: 1
Categories: Comedy
Am I going to follow this? Err, if I can find another group that has better encoding - there's lots of random stuff in this copy that I have. But it's cute. But possibly only that?

Via Kyuu and also M-FS:
Kiba
Something about magic and summoning and shard casters. Take one boy who has budding magical powers, and throw him into an alternate universe.
Episodes released: 2
Categories: Fantasy
Am I going to follow this? Probably, the magic is pretty.

Via Lunar:
Ouran High School Host Club
Take a poor ("commoner") girl, who looks like a guy because she cut off her long hair due to bubblegum, and put her a rich school. Have her walk into the "Host" club, which is composed of men who cater to the desires of the girls at the school. And have her knock over a 800 million yen vase, which she now has to pay back.
Episodes released: 2
Categories: Girl "crossdressing", comedy
Am I going to follow this? Yes. It's funny.

Via Shinsen-Subs:
xxxHOLiC
CLAMP's work. Ties in with Tsubasa Chronicles, kinda. Same witch-person-who-takes-things-in-exchange-for-services-provided.
Episodes released: 2
Categories: fantasy, comedy
Am I going to follow this? Probably...

Via SRN:
Strawberry Panic
All girls school. Erm... I dunno.
Episodes Released: 1
Categories: Slice of life, yuri
Am I going to follow this? Probably not. It's slow, and the blatent yuri isn't what I'm looking for. Something more along the flavor of Maria ga Miteru would have been interesting, but this.. I don't know.

Via Triad:
Today in Class 5-2
Slices of life, really. About middle school.
Categories: Slice of life, middle school, comedy.
Am I going to follow this? Eh, maybe.

Via yesy:
Utawarerumono
Set in a fantasy world, one mysterious main character who lost his memory, and people who have... droopy? reverse cat ears and tails... the ears are adorable, especially when used to express emotions.
Episodes released: 1
Categories: fantasy
Am I going to follow this? Yep! So cute!

Via WF:
School Rumble Semester 2
Comedy, just like season 1.
Categories: High school(?), comedy
Am I going to follow this? Yes, only 'cause I had the first season. There's no... serious plot though, but it's nice to watch in chunks of boredom.

Yeah, I did hear that it was from a game, and that the anime doesn't exactly follow the game, which bugged the person who did that review. (or something like that...) :: shrugs:: I don't know anything about the game though.
