Anime Impressions Spring 2013

Since I am watching quite a few shows this season, I thought I would just leave my impressions and the number of episodes of the shows that I am currently watching, enjoy!

DATE A LIVE (1-3):
By far, my favorite show this season. The fighting is very intense, and while at first I scoffed at the plot (Date Aliens to save mankind!), this anime makes it plausible. The characters are really good too. I really like it when the male mc of a series like this is not a pushover, and Itsuka is proving himself to be one of those characters.

As or the machine itself, I own the Windows 7 X51, and I'm quite pleased with it. It is a very compact, yet powerful machine, that I can connect to my own monitor or the HDTV in the living room. I run Linux Mint on mine through Virtualbox, and have a Windows 3.11 setup through DosBox.

Anime Spring 2013

So here we are again at the beginning of a new anime season. So, just like before, here is the link to the chart of the Spring Season, which goes from April (Actually end of March) to May 2013! I would post it here, but it is a very large image, that never seems to fit within the bounds of this blog, so I'll just link it this time.
I'm interested in Red Data Girl, Railgun S, Date A Live, Devil Survivor 2 and Hentai Ouji, are they any series that pique your interest?
