We’ll be keeping this rather brief since there’s a lot to cover. Apologies for anyone that actually cares enough to read what I think and wanted more in-depth stuff.

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.

Fall 2011 (+The Idolmaster) Final Impressions

December 31, 2011

This is going to be pretty short. Most of the shows I watched this season carry over into Winter.

Fall 2011 Chart v3.0 and shows to watch this season

September 18, 2011

As usual, chart is courtesy of cowboybibimbop.

Another season, another set of stuff I’ll be wasting my valuable free time with.

Shinryaku!? Ika Musume – Second season of one of the best shows of last year. Oh hell yes.

Bakuman 2 – Pretty much the same as above. Second season of one of the best shows of last year.

C3 -Cube x Cursed x Curious- – Yeah, I dunno. I saw a preview, I guess I just wanna see if it’s worth watching. I really don’t know jack squat about it and none of the descriptions are really very informative.

WORKING’!! – Second season of WORKING!! Already seen the first episode of this from the pre-air. It feels a little more balanced in character focus so far, but of course it’s the first episode, and it had to serve to reintroduce characters and stuff. There’s no guarantee it won’t slip right back into the awful Inami focus while it completely ignores everyone else just like the first season did, but I’ll give it a shot and hope it doesn’t disappoint.

Fate/Zero – I had every intention of reading the novels once they were fully translated, but I just haven’t had the time. I may try to squeeze them in before the anime gets too far into itself because I want to be familiar with the source material, but regardless of whether I do or not, a Fate series prequel written by Gen Urobuchi with all of the praise I’ve seen it given is an absolute must-watch.

Tamayura ~hitotose~ – I sat down to watch the OVA series of this a few months ago after I heard people mention that it was getting a TV series and I have to say that I was highly impressed. I absolutely loved it and I am seriously looking forward to this series. I really hope it lives up to the standards set by the OVAs, because if it does then it’s going to be one of the best shows this season.

Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai – I’m pretty much just watching this one on the hype built around it. A lot of people are talking about it and I just really want to see what all of the fuss is about. Also, the artist for the novels is the same as the artist for the Denpa Onna novels and you can really see that in the art for this series. I really liked that art style, so I’m also drawn to this. Shame we won’t have some excellent Shaft angles to go along with it, though.

Mirai Nikki – I still want to get around to reading all of the rest of the manga I have before this gets going (so yay, another barrier for the season alongside the Fate/Zero novels), but definitely interested in this.

Guilty Crown – Supercell, Supercell everywhere. I was initially attracted to this series for the character designs, but Supercell’s name being plastered all over it (which of course means Ryo is doing the music) means that there’s absolutely zero reason for me not to watch this. One of the series I’m most excited about this season.

Hidamari Sketch x SP – Always up for more Hidamari Sketch. Also can’t wait for the fourth season that’s been announced.

Specials, OVAs, and movies:
– Astarotte no Omocha! EX – Actually already saw this.
– Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai: Yonin to Idol – I had no idea this was already out. Gonna watch it shortly.
– Hourou Musuko special
– Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu: Sora ga Bokura no Nichijou
– Kimi ni Todoke specials
– Ikoku Meiro no Croisée: Yune & Alice
– Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai OVA
– Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kira OVA 2 and 3
– Carnival Phantasm 2nd Season
– Usagi Drop specials
– Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn 4
– Seitokai Yakuindomo OVA (Oh hell yes)
– Infinite Stratos Encore: Koi ni Kogareru Sextet

Nothing else I’m interested in so far, but as usual, we’ll see if I pick up something else as the season goes on.
