    Hi, Jello-kun. I recently started listening to your podcast and thought I’d comment on your list.

    Out of your five, I’ve seen all but Cobra the Animation, but also never finished B Gata H Kei. Overall, I’d have to agree, The World God Only Know is definitely up there (with its high production values and great music), but I would probably place Baka to Test higher. I’m more biased towards comedies and all the characters were fun. I thought TWGOK was somewhat handicapped by the pace of some of the arcs.

    I watched MM! after listening to your review, but found its ending somewhat disappointing. I find myself somewhat an Arashiko shipper, and any sympathies for Mio died with her voice being the same as Kirino (from Ore no Imouto). I really like Ayana Taketatsu (the VA), but there’s only so much bitchiness I can take. ^_^ But it was still more enjoyable than B Gata H Kei for me. That series was funny at first, but for some reason Yamada ended up on my nerves. Maybe I’ll finish it someday, since I only have 4 more eps to go. As for Cobra, it never came to mind. I only knew of it as the 80’s series, about the guy with the odd gun arm.

    Still, if I had to pick a top five of my own out of all I’ve seen from 2010 (which was about 20+ series for me), it’d probably be something like this:
    1) Cross Game (great balance of character, fun, and drama)
    2) Toaru Kagaku no Railgun (more fun that the Index series it spun-off from)
    3) Working!! (kind of silly at first, but I really liked Mahiru)
    4) Arakawa Under the Bridge (crazy fun)
    5) Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei (The Tatami Galaxy) (starts out slow but it ties everything up in a great way in the end)

    Keep up the good work!
