After a handful of episodes, a show has pretty much established what it is. If you jump to watch it the moment it’s released, it’s probably a 9-10. If you don’t mind waiting a day or two, it’s probably an 8. If you don’t mind waiting a few days to a week, it’s probably a 7. If you don’t mind waiting for more than a week (or two or three), it’s a 6. And if it’s 5 or below, you’re pretty much ambivalent about when you watch it (if ever).
A double feature of Haruhi-chan, while Churuya-san is still MIA.
