Current Episode: 14
Awesome episode filled with moments of true gar, despite the absence of any male characters (Raki sucks, he's excluded). Clare trains rigorously with Irene, strengthening her swordsmanship while attempting to learn Irene's Flash Sword technique. Irene gave (literally) her right arm to Clare, allowing her to use the Flash Sword much easily. After Clare left, Irene encounters Rafaela, ranked Number Five in the Organization, sent to kill Irene after sensing her Yoki (something like power levels in DBZ LOL, only cooler). On her way, Clare encounters an Awakened Ophelia (as seen in episode 13), fought against her and defeated her. Not quite sure what she received from Ophelia (lots of credits, EXPs, cake?) since I didn't read the manga, but I'm assuming that Clare received Ophelia's Rippling Sword technique. At this point, I would say that Claymore's getting more and more interesting. Definitely sticking to this anime till' the end.

DEVIL MAY CRY
Current Episode: 2
Subs: AonE - Conclave
Still nothing much happening: Pointless racing/demon slaying mission with no concrete storyline and also without a main plot at all to begin with. The action scenes are its only redeeming factor. Come on Capcom/Madhouse, throw us another cliched demon or madman wanting to take over the world; that's the kind of plot and story so mundane yet easily evolvable into something so awesome makes the game popular in the first place. I'm still sticking to this anime simply because I love the game, though I'm not anticipating anything that great besides being good enough for DMC fans.

HAYATE NO GOTOKU!
Current Episode: 14
Subs: SS - Eclipse
This episode closely follows Chapter 8 of the manga's 4th volume (or Chapter 39 if you count em all) with some minor changes: Nagi is excited about Hayate being qualified for Hakuou Academy and decided to hold an early celebration. However, Katsura-sensei struggles to tell Hayate that he actually failed and that she was the indirect cause, having played pranks on him before the exam. Hayate eventually knew but nonetheless managed to get himself accepted through Maria's recommendation. Not as funny as previous episodes and manga is still better but what the hell, I like random references that makes me wanna Google it.

Pointless chit-chat has never been this fun. Massive ROFL at the Animate staff and their attempt coax Konata into buying their stuff, only to find Konata 3 yen short of cash, much to their previous feeling of triumph upon witnessing Konata picking up an item from their store. Minoru's Ore no Wasuremono (My Forgotten Thing) credit song deserves a standing ovation.
