Fall 2012 Chart 2.0 and shows I’ll be watching

September 22, 2012

New chart is up, courtesy of the usual place.

Shin Sekai Yori – The premise sounds interesting. I’m always up for a story like this.

Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! – KyoAni’s newest work. I have to. I can’t recall being disappointed by one of their series yet.

BTOOOM! – I’ve heard some stuff about the series. Kinda interested in it.

Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb – OH MY GOD I’M SO EXCITED HOLY CRAP I CAN’T WAIT IT’S GONNA BE SO GOOD OH LORD WHY ISN’T IT AIRING YET

Busou Shinki – I didn’t know anything about this until I played Otomedius Excellent, but I rather like it and I watched the short episodes. Can’t wait for the series and some more Arnval and Strarf.

K – Iunno. It looks interesting, visually. I’m always up for supporting original series, too.

Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankei Nai yo ne – Incest story of the season.

Bakuman 3 – Third season. Bring it. Hopefully less stupid drama this season, but I’m not getting my hopes up. The second season left off at a really exciting point, though.

Haitai Nanafa – This will be my moé overdose for the season, I guess? I honestly don’t have much confidence in sticking with it the whole season.

Little Busters! – I guess that this will technically be my first Key series. I watched Angel Beats, but it’s a very different beast than the VNs. (I actually have Kanon, Air, and Clannad on DVD that I need to sit down and watch still.)

Teekyuu – This is definitely my kind of series. I think it’s just going to be those short episodes, though, so that’s kind of upsetting. I hope the budget isn’t complete garbage.

Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo – JC Staff LN adaptation of the season. I’m more or less obligated to check these out every time.

Girls und Panzer – It just looks like my kind of thing. I LIKE MOÉ, OKAY?

Medaka Box Abnormal – Second season. Pretty excited.

Psycho-Pass – Urobuchi is writing. I can’t pass this one up.

Robotics;Notes – New 5pb. VN adaptation. I heard it wasn’t as good as Steins;Gate, but I’m still very interested.

Seitokai no Ichizon – Second season. More harem hijinks. I hope the loli is back. She’s awesome.

Specials, OVAs, and movies:
– High School DxD – I actually already watched it.
– Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai: Add-on Disc – Pretty excited.
– Inu x Boku SS Special – This was a very underrated show last year. Can’t wait for more.
– Amagami SS+ plus Onsen Special – It says unaired, but I’m pretty sure we saw this during the broadcast…
– Minami-ke Omatase – I hope it’s at least on par with the third season, but it would be better if it was as good as the second. Another season has been announced as well.
– Upotte!! – I really liked this show. It was surprisingly good.
– The World God Only Knows – I thought we were done with the anime for this. I’m glad we’re getting more.
– Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? OF THE DEAD – I’m glad we get more since the second season was so short.
– THE iDOLM@STER: Shiny Festa – HYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYPE. So hyped. I’ll be buying all three games these come on, but not until there’s an inevitable budget/value/Best edition.
– Tasogare Otome x Amnesia – This ended up being one of the better shows I’ve seen, and I love Oonuma’s direction. I can’t wait to revisit the series.
– Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica movie 1 & 2 – I’ll definitely watch these, but I’m waiting on BD. I probably won’t even watch if they come to a theater nearby. (They’ve been announced to come to some theaters around the world.)
– Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo – The Rebuild movies have been amazing so far. Can’t wait for the third entry. As before, I’ll be waiting on BD.

A lot more than I hoped to be watching this season, but I’m sure I’ll enjoy it.

I’m not sure when the final impressions will come for Summer because of how far behind Joshiraku is, so I imagine the next anime-related post will be initial impressions for Fall. There will probably be two import posts and a post about AWA before that.

Winter 2012 (+Guilty Crown, Bakuman 2, & Mirai Nikki) Final Impressions

April 17, 2012

Less carryovers than I seem to remember having. I said five last time but I only have three. Maybe I was counting Fate/Zero and Sket Dance, too? Anyway, I had to wait on Mirai Nikki to end, which was taking its sweet time. Let’s do this.

Spring 2012 Chart v1.0 and show I’ll watch

March 18, 2012

Chart by cowboybibimbop.

Naruto SD: Rock Lee no Seishun Full-Power Ninden – Admittedly I’m only going to watch this for Rock Lee. I have zero interest in Naruto otherwise.

Fushigi no Umi no Nadia Digital Remaster – I’ve always been curious about this series, so I’ll pick it up.

Upotte!! – Moé anthropomorphized guns. Don’t need to explain myself here.

Tasogare Otome x Amnesia – I almost picked up the manga for this once, so I guess I’ll do the next best thing and pick up the anime.

Hyouka – I don’t even know (or care) what this is about, but it’s KyoAni’s new series so it’s a given.

Fate/Zero – Obviously. Second half is going to blow the first half out of the water.

Kore wa Zombie desu ka? OF THE DEAD – Loved the first season, so I’m ready for this.

Sankarea – Zombie romantic comedy. I need no words.

Haiyore! Nyaruko-san – Finally, a full-fledged TV series. I can’t wait.

Medaka Box – NisiOisin animu, do want.

Nazo no Kanojo X – Another one I almost picked the manga up for.

Saki: Achiga-hen – Episode of Side-A – Saki is my 3rd favorite anime ever. Guess why I’m watching this.

Specials, OVAs, and movies:
– Fate/Zero Extra – If this is that thing with Iri in the classroom, it looks funny.
– High School DxD – I’ve really enjoyed the series. A lot more than I thought I would.
– Ura Mirai Nikki – Did the first one come out? I never saw it.
– Amagami SS+ plus – Maybe. The series has kinda sucked.
– Thermae Romae – This is another thing I liked a lot more than I thought I would.
– C3 – Wow, that’s a good thing. Had no idea this would be coming out.
– Seitokai Yakuindomo – Oh hell yeeeeeeeees.
– Kore wa Zombie desu ka? – More is better. Usually.
– Strike Witches movie – But only once a good rip comes out.

No one cares because no one reads this, but I’ll be out of town next week and I’ll miss a few season enders, so it’ll be a while before I get around to my season wrap-up. I say anywhere from 1.5 to 2 weeks minimum.

Winter 2012 Initial Impressions

January 17, 2012

Apparently I completely forgot to do this last season. Weird. Well I’ve already done my final impression on most of those shows, so I won’t be bothering to go back. We’ll just move forward with this season. I apologize for the delay. I had a lot of pick-ups I didn’t plan for and there have been some weird delays in a lot of the shows I’m watching.

Winter 2012 Chart v3.0 and the shows I’ll watch

December 10, 2011

Chart by cowboybibimbop.

Let’s get to it.

Tantei Opera Milky Holmes 2 – I passed up the first season initially, but it was pretty enjoyable when I gave it a shot. Can’t wait for some Mori this season.

Recorder to Randoseru – Legal loli, 4koma, etc. Too many things for me to ignore.

Another – I hope this one is good, because I really want it to be.

Black Rock Shooter – Doko e itta no?

Amagami SS+ plus – Not sure how I feel about this really getting a second season, but if it’s half as good as the first then I’m still in for a great ride.

Kill Me Baby – 4koma comedy. I obviously don’t get enough of this in my animu diet.

Mouretsu Pirates – Based on a novel series called, literally, “Mini-Skirt Pirates.” Curiosity got the better of me on this one. I just have to see how it is.

Papa no Iu Koto wo Kikinasai! – I don’t really have a reason for this one. Just ’cause. Seriously. I can’t think of any reason why I’d watch this show, but I want to anyway.

Nisemonogatari – Hell yeah, more Bakemonogatari goodness.

Specials, OVAs, and movies:
– Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei – Can’twaitcan’twaitcan’twait
– Usagi Drop – Still watching these.
– Ikoku Meiro no Croisée: Yune & Alice – I honestly forgot about these. Need to get on ’em.
– Toradora – My levels of hype are immesurable. Bold just ’cause.
– Hidan no Aria – Why not? I rather liked the show.
– Carnival Phantasm 3rd Season – This has been phenomenal. Everyone who likes Type-Moon needs to see it.
– Higurashi Kira – Episode 3 subs where?
– Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko – Only slightly less hype than the Toradora OVA.
– Ura Mirai Nikki – Maybe. Depends on how much I care to follow up on it. I said I was gonna watch the Infinite Stratos OVA and ended up not giving two craps.
– Steins;Gate – About as much hype as Denpa Onna.
– K-ON! movie – No cam rips for me. Only watching when a good home release rip is out.
– .hack//The Movie – Again, not watching until a good home release rip is out.

I feel like I get lazier with these every time. Oh well.

May follow up with a post about what I scored in Right Stuf’s holiday sale after it’s over. We’ll see.

Spring 2011 Chart v3.0 and my shows to watch for the season

March 5, 2011

Once again, this season’s chart is brought to us by cowboybibimbop.

I would have liked to have waited for a chart with some more concrete starting dates on it, but with the bulk of the season starting next month, I may as well get to planning out what I’ll be watching.

Moshidora – I’ve heard good things about the source material, so I’ll be picking this one up. I’m also pretty interested in the airing schedule. Unless it’s changed, the show will be airing one episode every day (or at least every weekday, I forget). I’d like to see how that works out.

Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai – *Shrug* Just looks cute. I pick up a lot of stuff by art style.

[C] The Money of Soul and Possibility Control – It’s an orignal series that sounds like it could be pretty good. I’m always up for trying out some original stuff.

Sket Dance – I’ve heard too much about the manga to pass this one up. I’ll have to give it a shot.

Nichijou – The OVA hits next week and the TV series will follow. What I’ve seen of previews makes it look like a combination of a lot of series that I like, so I’m hoping the formula works out for it. Additionally, it’s KyoAni, so I pretty much have to check it out.

Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko – Newest Shaft series. Can’t pass it up. It’s a law.

30-sai no Hoken Taiiku – A self-help series for men in their 30s about dating women and having sex with them… This is either going to be really luzly or really depressing, but I’ll have to check it out to find out which.

Dog Days – Newest series from the creator of Nanoha. You couldn’t stop me from watching this if you tried.

The World God Only Knows S2 – Oh man, continuation of the first season. Gonna be awesome.

A Channel – I dunno. Cute art and a 4koma adaptation. Sounds right up my alley.

Hidan no Aria – This has been something I’ve been waiting on for a while, but it’s been so long that I can’t really remember the original reason. Kugimiya plays the lead, though, so I’m totally in anyway.

Maria-Holic: Alive – S2 of Maria-Holic. I wasn’t too taken with the first season, but I had read the manga before it and I thought the manga had much better execution of pretty much everything. The only episode I really liked was the last one because it was original content and followed Shaft’s typical style. This one will pick up where I stopped reading (Read: Stopped being able to afford) the manga. I won’t be going into it with a bias, so I’ll probably enjoy it more. Too bad nothing will ever top the ED of the first season, though.

Lotte no Omocha! – The premise on this one sounds pretty lulzy, but according to manga readers, the series ends up ignoring a lot of it in favor of a rather sweet father-daughter relationship between the tiny succubus and her human victim (who already has a real daughter). I’m in on that concept, because I do like series that work on that premise (like Yotsuba&!). Also, more Kugimiya lead role.

Steins;Gate – I never did get around to watching (or playing, despite my best efforts) Chaos;Head, but I’m assuming that there’s little to no direct relation to the two other than the world they’re set in, so I’ll be watching this as Steins;Gate still has no VN translation.

Hanasaku Iroha – Sounds like my slice-of-life show for the season.

Hen Zemi – Another of those shows where the OVA will come before the series. No idea why I want to watch it other than it sounds like it’ll be a decent comedy series and I’m always willing to give more seinen a shot. The first OVA is out, so I’ll give it a try soon.

As for specials and OVAs:
– Gundam Unicorn #3 (which should be out today)
– Koe de Oshigoto! #2
– Asobi ni Iku yo! OVA (no idea why, I didn’t like the show that much)
– Shukufuku no Campanella OVA (Oh dear lord, please let there be more Tortilla Co. and sexy Agnes.)
– Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu OVA 2 (moar BtT please)
– .hack//Quantum #3 (still waiting on subs for #2)
– Morita-san wa Mukuchi (*Shrug*)
– Seitokai Yakuindomo OVA (Oh hell yes.)
– Amagami SS OVA (Miya episode, ohgodohgodohgod)
– Highschool of the Dead OVA
– Kaichou wa Maid-sama! Special
– Valkyria Chronicles 3 OVA (May hold off on this one depending on if it spoils the game or not)

The only other possible addition would be Kaiji S2, but I still have to watch S1, so that’ll be further down the line, I’m sure.

Fall 2010 (+Katanagatari & Amagami SS) Final Impressions

December 31, 2010

Delays on Arakawa subs held this back for about half a week longer than the shows I watched ended (Zakuro ended on Monday), but now I’m done with the Fall season. As usual, I’ll post my final impressions of the shows I watched, as well as shows from other seasons that ended this season, and I’ll declare my show of the season.

However, since this is the last season of 2010, I’ll also pick my show of the year.

Summer 2010 Initial Impressions

July 12, 2010

Updated Summer chart, courtesy of Chartfag.

Now that Asobi ni Iku Yo! has aired, I’m all set on what I’m watching this season (except that I may or may not be starting Strike Witches 2 later this week if I watch the first season, but that remains to be seen).

Summer 2010 Chart is out

May 19, 2010

Courtesy of Chartfag, as usual.

Summer’s looking pretty bleak. There doesn’t seem to be much to watch, and Spring has been so damn awesome that I’m definitely going to be disappointed in comparison. I also haven’t really heard of much being hyped for this season, so I’m not expecting a lot.

Highschool of the Dead – This one’s been hyped up a good bit. I don’t know much about it, but it looks like it could be pretty good and I hear it’s basically a horror flick in anime form, or something along those lines. I almost feel like I have to check it out.

Seikimatsu Occult Academy – The third Anime no Chikara project. I’ve enjoyed the first two and original anime is always welcome.

Amagami SS – Believe it or not, literally minutes before studying the chart, I saw this PS2 VN on VNDB and was disappointed that there was no PC version or translation. Good to know there’s going to be an anime adaptation, so I’ll definitely be checking it out now.

Ookamisan to Shichinin no Nakamatachi – I’ve had an eye on this since I saw the trailer a while back. Checking it out ’cause it looks nice, but I don’t know anything about the series.

I may check out Asobi ni Iku Yo! and Seitokai Yakuindomo if only ’cause the premises don’t sound too boring and I like the promo art in the chart. I just opted to watch these on a whim though and I’ve heard literally nothing about them before now.

There are also a lot of sequels I’d watch if I had actually gotten around to the first seasons by now, like Sengoku Basara or Strike Witches. All in due time, I guess.

I guess we’ll see how much I end up watching this season. There isn’t exactly a lot to choose from, but I definitely won’t end up watching as much as I am this season. There’s no way I’ll start up 12 new series like I did this season since there are only 13 that aren’t sequels to something I haven’t watched and I know I’m not watching at least a handful of those. Aaaaaanywho… We’ll see, I guess.
