When the fifth episode of Hataraku Maou-sama! finished I had a truly important decision to make, one that I usually do not have to do.

This may change over time, naturally, but right now the spring 2013 anime season has been full of surprises!
Who thought a Devil King working at a fast-food chain would end up hilarious? Or what about Attack on Titan managing to live up to its expectations? And let us not forget the massive hatred towards the anime adaptation of Aku no Hana!
