What's Wonderduck Watching, Fall 2010 Edition!

In every anime season, there's always some keepers and some shows that are quite honestly nothing more than crap on a stick.  In this edition of the semi-regular series, "What's Wonderduck Watching?", I'll be pointing you towards a few shows that I think are keepers... and a couple that are crap on a stick.

As always, this post isn't meant to be a comprehensive review of every series out there, nor is it unbiased or even-handed.  It's a look at the shows I'm going to be following this season because I think they're good, and a warning to stay away from a couple of others because I think they're awful.

That being said, let's get on with the program!

Programming Note

A new entry into the semi-occasional feature "What's Wonderduck Watching?" will be coming along in the next day or so... except I'm still trying to figure out what'll end up as keepers.  And I need a nap.  So, in lieu of anything involving things like 'content' or 'anything worthwhile,' here's a funny picture.

Oh, and no, Siergen, I haven't forgotten, I'm still researching.  There does appear to be a one-word answer, however: fear.

UPDATE:

...and you thought I was kidding, Gerberette?  Pshaw!

Little Girl, Big Gun

A couple of days ago, Steven was talking about an anime fetish/trope/whatever, namely, "Little Girls with Big Guns."  Last night, while I was waiting for my broadband connection to get fixed, I stumbled upon another example or two: Gretel from Black Lagoon 2nd Barrage.

You've gotta love the cute little plushy fob hanging from the barrel, neh?

In case you're wondering, it's a M1918A2 Browning Automatic Rifle, or BAR.  Sort of halfway between an assault rifle and a machine gun, I suppose it's the predecessor of today's SAR.

Now, one can debate if Gretel actually falls into the category of "Little Girl," but that's an argument for another day.
