Seems like we have pretty similar tastes! Victory! Peace!
Except "Nagi no Oitoma", the titles you're watching are all in my "to watch later" list (I prefer to wait until I'm sure that they're subbed completely Beaten ), and apart "I Turn", none of the ones you've dropped interests me... w00t!

p.s.
Finished "Kinpika", total let down as far as I'm concerned.
Started "Saki ni Umareta Dake no Boku", I'm liking it so far...

Finished "Saki ni Umareta Dake no Boku": it gets a full 10/10 for its many merits (very interesting plot, beautiful message, great performances by the leads - Aoi Yu and Sakurai Sho - and by part of the supporting cast - most of all, Kazama Morio and Kinami Haruka - btw, too bad Morikawa Aoi's role is so small Shameful Cry ) and despite its defects (the naiveté of some details - active learning is indeed a great tool, but it's not so easy to implement it, particularly in a high school environment, as shown here; the terrible performances given by Arakawa Yoshiyoshi - the guy can "play" only ONE character, and that's what he does *every single time* in *every single drama*...ANNOYING!!! - and by Takashima Masanobu - compared to him, even Dick Dastardly from "Wacky Races" was a credible, realistic and sober villain! bleh )

p.s.
Started "Koi ga Shitai"...the 1st episode seems interesting... Victory! Peace!

Finished "Koi ga Shitai": nice dorama, mostly well written and acted (honorable mentions for Kanno Miho, Watabe Atsuro and Tokoro George), accompanied by some lovely music. You'll need a strong suspension of disbelief, though, as these guys keep bumping into each other as if they lived in a small village, instead of a metropolis, LOL. On the other hand (and this is the reason why I don't give it a full 10/10) the characters are even "too realistic", in that none of them is fully appealing; they have too many defects and even the apparently nicest among them will reveal a dark, hidden side. Something which would have been ok in a noir, but in a romantic story seems a little out of place, imho.

Three episodes into Toho Nanafun. Very slow and offbeat. Requires patience.
