Mori in Guren 2

Been playing catch-up with the 20+ some new shows, but not terribly impressed by anything so far, with a few minor exceptions - Takahiro Yoshimatsu's Oh Edo, which had a nice subdued gag sense and enjoyable designs, and Tensai Okamura's Darker Than Black. I find his restrained, assured pacing fairly watchable. Mori turned up more quickly than expected in Guren, in ep 2. The explosion was fantastic. Felt like the first time in a long time, at least since Iso's explosion in Blood, that I'd felt someone coming up with a new and exciting take on the explosion. His other big shot was typical Mori with all of the strange shapes and flat colors and odd timing. My vote for best Engrish title of season goes to Kiss Dum Engage Planet.
