April 2007 New Anime - Second thoughts Round 1 part 3

The Good:

Sisters of Wellber
Second thought: Although still interesting, I feel I'm caring less and less about the story as the plot being developed. This is probably the next in line to be dropped. It's in the "good" section for now because I'm not dropping it yet.
Revised rating: 2.75 out of 5 (net gain: -1.2)

Toward the Terra
Second thought: I'm actually surprised that I'm still watching it. Normally, this type of art style would make me cut it lose within 2 episodes. But it had managed to grab and hold on to me.
Revised rating: 3.9 out of 5 (net gain: 0.7)

Second thought: After the first episode, it doesn't look like a female version of Berserk any more. It is still good. The story is a bit formula for this type. I expect it to get out of it soon.
Revised rating: 4.25 out of 5 (no gain, no loss)

Darker Than Black
Second thought: I haven't seen any hint for what's the grant plot yet. The recent episodes demonstrated it definitely has potential.
Revised rating: 4.1 out of 5 (net gain: 0.2)

Love Complex
Second thought: It was interesting and funny to begin with. It actually gets more interesting and funnier. For people like comedies, this is definitely a keeper.
Revised rating: 4.4 out of 5 (net gain: 0.4)

The Bad:

Kaibutsu Oujo
Second thought: Actually, I haven't seen the second episode of it yet. But I'm making the call to strike it off my watch list becaues I don't like the art style very much and I didn't care much about the story either. I still have some old backlogs need time to finish. So I'm just going to throw this one away for the greater good.
Verdict: Gone with the wind
Final rating: 2.8 out of 5 (It's pretty close to my threshold, too)

Heroic Age
Second thought: I don't know why, but it feels retarded. I have not interest of watching it any more.
Verdict: Delete.
Final rating: 1.9 out of 5 (net gain: -0.7)

The Missing:

AIKa R16: Virgin Mission
Status: Hard to find
Second thoughts: I actually wouldn't mind watching more of it. The problem is very few group is doing sub for it, and the one doing sub is very slow. I just can't find more episodes.
Verdict: It's a gonner, unless I can find some more episodes.
Final rating: 3.0 out of 5
