Clannad + Clannad after story are two legitimately sad animes I've watched. The relationships get developed and you start believing in what happens. The "Another World" extra episode is nice too. After story is probably the saddest anime I've ever seen... mega spoiler about Clannad: + Show Spoiler +
until they pull some tricks at the end

I think its fine. I read the big 3 (and really enjoy OP), but each one either has too much trolling, or has been discussed to death everywhere else already.
As for Clannad, maybe I'll pick it up. Not really a fan of drama as you can see, but maybe I'll watch it for humor when I have time.
FMA:B is fine... I don't mind the comedic parts which breaks up the grimdark. I think its rushed, but it has to be since the first parts are exactly the same. I'm going to wait until more of it is out before really deciding if I want to drop it.
Anybody else watch Cross Game? I think it's the best anime of the season, first ep actually made me tear up slightly even though I've read the manga.
Actually what's Cross Game about? I kept hearing about it, dled it but never got to watch it (like the many other animes that are airing this season =.=")
Added a pic with all this season's animes in it in the OP!
@StRyKeR You mean the one where Tomoya and Tomoyo got together? That was really really sad

Cross game is basically a romance/slice of life/comedy/sports manga/anime with great dialogue that uses a baseball backdrop. That sums up pretty much every Adachi manga ever (swap baseball with whatever other sport), but its like coming back to the same delicious restaurant every week.
I don't really like baww animes (since I'm pretty heartless and end up being bored or laughing), so maybe I won't watch Clannad.
God, I was in Japan a week ago and they were playing K-ON songs in like every anime related shops and some aracades that now I'm overdoesed on it....... and I come onto TL and I see a K-ON thread......... is this the doku denpa of the era......... /faints
Cross Game is in the mitsuru adachi genre /cryptic

They haven't started discussing anything good yet, we are safe
Why did you start this with K-on, why not phantom, or eden of the east, both are so good.

No. I think in Adachi manga, baseball/boxing/diving/etc is all used as a tool to develop relationships between the characters, and gives it an extra dimension. It's very character central IMO. There's also a good amount of comedy and romance (which I don't think Major has - only read some of it though). Of course, baseball is still pretty central (getting to the Koshien), but what makes the anime and manga really good is not the baseball parts.
Very good anime, I definately recommend it.

Yaya brother, I found the manga a lot sadder but the anime version was well done. The song is really good.
Adachi Mitsuru though is a genius. I find myself re-reading Cross Game and Katsu! over and over again and it doesn't really get boring.
Are you following the Cross Game manga? Like, he gives you clues on how the characters are feeling but you never know for sure who likes who and such, so addicting o_o. But definitely Cross Game is my favourite of his work, the anime doesn't really do it justice I find.
Eden of the East is better than K-ON! I think, I really like K-ON! though, I really liked how they drew Mio (really liked her eyes) don't care much for her personality though, definitely my favourite character.
