Keeping up!

Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou no Kyoushitsu e: The government has create an elite school where exactly 100 students per year are admitted. They live in dorms and get a lot of points that translate to cash each month to cover their living expenses. Kiyotaka enters this school, keeping to himself while his classmates play around with this new-found wealth. He only talks to Kikyou, who is actively anti-social, so that doesn't help either. When one month has passed, the reality of how this school works is starting to set in...
It all looks gorgeous, but the main characters are unlikable -- and the ones that go out of their way to be friendly seem untrustworthy. I'm not sure what the writers are going for, but they will have to go without us.

Mahoujin Guru Guru: A remake from a series from 1994, a parody of 8-bit RPGs with their pixellated overland maps and standard plots. Nike has been groomed by his parents to become a hero, and when the king announces he is looking for one, he is pushed to answer the call. He is also paired with a girl his age, who is the last magician of the forbidden Guru Guru magic school -- and she doesn't have any common sense knowledge of the world.
It's very... energetic. It's fun, but it's really, really 'shouty'. It has some good puns (some of them non-obvious visual ones), but all in all one episode was enough zany-ness for us.
