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.

I apologize for the delay. I would normally have written this up over the weekend, but I was pretty busy this weekend. (More on that in a bit after I finish up this post.)

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.
