I'm watching Guilty Crown mostly for the mecha, honestly. Well for now. It's in the Noitamina block, so at the very least it'll be pretty. And I rather like how all the mecha seem to be remote operated. You really dont see that all to often, even though it seems to be the way real warfare is headed.
I'm finding Ben-To a lot funnier then it has any right to be. I think it's how serious its treating the subject matter, combined with the obvious 'male eye' view of the protagonist.
Boku ha Tomodachi (Does it have an accepted nickname yet?) is rapidly showing why none of the two girls have REAL friends.
And it's not a new series this season, but DAMN did the last ep of Mawaru Penguindrum up the WTF meter.
Well, I've played the game, so I knew what was going on, but what I got from that scene was that the Shadow said what it did and showed people talking about using Youske to break Youske's will, and make him see that, despite his denials, he secretly did see himself as an annoying, friendless loser that people were nice to only becuase his father was the manager of the local Wal-Mart equivalent. The MC's actions showed Youske that he did have a friend, a friend who had just seen and heard all the darker emotions Youske was hiding and still offered him a hand up, after punching him out of his funk. That allowed Youske the emotional strength to accept that the Shadow was telling the truth and integrate it into himself.
On the other point, yes, I do hope the MC does start speaking more soon.
