I would like to hear some opinions on these anime. Thanks.

Gosick - I have mixed feelings about this one. Starts off as sort of a detective show, that takes place between world wars. The 2 leads are high school age, although Victoria looks younger. Victoria is a pretty good character. Kazu is a bit of a dork, but a likeable dork.
The mystery cases aren't actually done all that well. I guess a plus is that alot of the cases are linked together, so even after they solve 1, it ends up being connected to another.
All told, i'd give it a passing grade. The ending picked up somewhat, and that long with the characters it gives it a push into ok-nes. It is not an amazing show, imo.
Denpa Onna - I found the show to be quite witty. Alot of insane, erm, I mean interesting characters. Even the male lead isn't to terrible, although he does have a case of male lead denseness. The ending...is mostly a non ending. There is another episode to be released on disc. I find it hard to believe it will have anything resembling closure in that last episode though. Well, I think the show is good enough to stand up on it's own without a real ending though. Probably my second favorite of the past season, behind Steinds:Gate
Yondemasuyo Azazel-san - As far as I can tell, this one was pure comedy, and about a demon summoning detective agency. Humor is quite crude, and the first 2 episodes did make me laugh occasionally, but not enough to contineu after 2 episodes. But, since humor is one of the most subjective criteria I can think of, ymmv.
Hen Zemi - Another pure comedy. Another one the humor is quite crude. This one had college students, I think (although the animation made them look like high schoolers). I don't think I thought it was funny 1 time during the 2 episodes I stuck around for. I can't really recommend it. But, ymmv again.
Deadman Wonderland - I actually tried the manga out some time ago, and didn't particularly care for it. I tried the show out for the heck of it, and liked it a little better. but, still, never made it past episode 5. I didn't dislike it, but there was so much better airing, I didn't want to 'waste" my time watching. I still might go and finish it up at a later date.
Sengoku Otome - not really my kind of show, so I didn't even really watch much of the first episode I tried to. I'll take a pass on this one.
Moshidora - if I remember what this show was, correctly, I think it was about a boys baseball team. But, rather than being about the team, it's about the female manager, and her attempts to manage it using a book on running a business. The details are a little fuzzy. I couldn't for the life of me figure out what could have possibly be interesting about the show, and I dropped it after 2 episodes. perhaps someone can tell me what I'm missing :P

The only one I've seen is Deadman Wonderland; I am on the 3rd episode and it is so suspenseful. I would recommend it if you enjoy mystery/action and suspense mixed in with a little gore. It is unlike any anime I've seen and it is a hell of a ride.
