A Centaur's Life being more about its unique world than necessary with the main cast just works for me. Maybe the title of the show should be something else because it seems like that Hime would be the only centaur but that's not the case at all. Also Shiro is Hime's cousin not niece. Hime is an only child and can't be an aunt.

I sort of wished that there was more club stuff with Gamers because I was getting tired of the misunderstanding rom-com that it was mostly was. I was so glad that episode 12 wasn't about romance at all.

Made in Abyss
Spoiler:
Riko should have carried a few more sets of clothes considering how many times she either pee,
puke, or bleed on her clothes. Also Nanashi is a guy. Don't think there's only one trap in a show.
Princess Principal was a good show even though it had the weird nonlinear structure which should have been two seasons considering they up to case 24. The first case actually spoils the twist if you were paying attention.

Convenience Store Boy Friends would have been fine the way it was except it was brought as a show about seven sets of couples which only two of them were the focus and the other five were nonexistent.

I'm assuming you mean Shino, but yeah that was a mispoke.

When did they say it was a boy? Technically Chris and I never seen them indicate gender, and we never heard them specify in self reference like "boku" for boy. Unlike Maruruk who couldn't stop saying "boku". Only indication I got was her being comfortable with Riko and not with Regu (Stripping, hugging, etc). But in the end, I went with what Myanimelist was calling her gender-wise. But I'm open to whatever you found.

It's funny because I never got why people got hung up on the nonlinear structure. I just took it as it exploring each character in jump arounds before going off to the main story. Tons of shows do this, but this one bothered people quite a bit.

Not that there's anything wrong with that, just speaking my chuckle.

Spoiler:
They never did say Nanashi's gender was but the hairstyle was more like a guy than a girl's hairstyle.
Also if Nanashi was a girl, wouldn't Nanashi wear a shirt instead of exposing the chest? I did initially think Nanashi was a girl but my friend convinced me otherwise.

I don't mind if the nonlinearity has a point but there's no point with Princess Principal. For example, the original season of Haruhi was nonlinear because they wanted to conceal the nature of Haruhi until the end because it was reveal at the beginning. Another example was Concrete Revolutio when the episodes were cases which they weren't resolved initially but took months or years later in the show timeline to resolve.

I couldn't see any of that with Princess Principal to say that the nonlinearity had a point.

Spoiler:
maybe the fur factor, youngness and transformation (i.e lack of breast) make so that 'it' doesn't really care about being topless or not.
