Fall 2013 Anime Chart and shows I’ll watch

September 30, 2013

Yep, late. I know. Once again, I’m doing this the day before the season starts. I was gone for most of the day during the con times and the rest of my time those days was spent catching up on anime and Game Grumps episodes that released while I was gone. I tend to do this a week or so before the season starts so I have the most up-to-date info on the season’s shows, but that’s kinda what happens when the con rolls into town.

Anywho, without further ado:

Shows:
– Miss Monochrome: The Animation (I don’t even know what this is, but it’s short.)
– Kyoukai no Kanata
– Kill la Kill
– Golden Time (OH MY GOD I’M SO EXCITED PLEASE HELP ME)
– Little Busters! ~Refrain~ (I’m looking forward to my beer and Little Busters on Saturday nights again.)
– Tesagure! Bukatsumono (I’ve never watched one of these MMD shows, but maybe if it’s short I’ll watch this one.)
– Sekai de Ichiban Tsuyoku Naritai!
– Teekyuu S3
– Non Non Biyori (My SoL show for the season, apparently.)
– BlazBlue Alter Memory

Other:
– Genshiken Nidaime Special
– Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Ilya Specials
– Pocket Monsters: THE ORIGIN (Pretty excited for this. Looks awesome.)
– Kill Me Baby OVA
– Seitokai Yakuindomo OVA (These need to go on forever.)
– Miyakawa-ke no Kuufuku OVA
– Kiss x Sis OVA (These also need to go on forever.)
– Hidamari Sketch Sae/Hiro OVA

Movies:
– Chuunibyou movie with the long name
– Kara no Kyoukai: Mirai Fukuin
– Madoka 3rd movie

Final impressions for Summer will come when I’ve finished everything. I’m only waiting on Symphogear and Ro-Kyu-Bu and RKB came out last night. If Symphogear is out tonight or tomorrow then I’ll definitely write it up on Wednesday.

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 2011 (+Star Driver, Bakuman, & Index II) Final Impressions

April 23, 2011

Apologies for the delay. With all of the delays from the natural disasters keeping things back far enough that Madoka’s announced finale just had me put the whole thing off, it took a while to get around to this. It also took me a day just to sit down and watch Madoka and another to find the time to get around to this. Such a pain.

Starting with this season wrap-up, I’ll formally announce my show of the season. Usually I just mention it in the reviews and it just sorta gets lost in the walls of text. From here on out, it’ll be explicitly stated.

Winter 2011 Initial Impressions

January 13, 2011

I feel a bit like I’m jumping the gun on this one since I haven’t started everything I’m watching this season, but Houkago no Pleiades doesn’t start until February 1st, so it’s either now or in almost three weeks. Anywho, time to get started on what I’m watching this season.

Winter 2011 Chart v3… has been up for a while >.>;

December 13, 2010

There’s been a lot of confusion on my part this season when it comes to anime charts. Chartfag has been taking a break due to real life circumstances, but has unofficially passed the torch to (read: bothered him to do it instead) The Cart Driver. Unfortunately, I was having difficulty finding a finalized chart with premiere dates. Then I found one I had lying around from cowboybibimbop that was mostly done but didn’t have dates. Looking for the newest version, I found the completed chart I had been looking for.

And so, it’s that magical time of the season where I once again decide what I’m going to be watching in the upcoming anime season.

Haiyoru! Nyaruani: Remember My Love(craft-sensei) – Some kinda moe series about anthropomorphic Lovecraftian creatures. It apparently had some kind of ONA series earlier this year and the TV series will only consist of 4-minute episodes. Kind of disappointing given the potential of the concept. This one slipped by me and caused me to go looking for a new chart. Figures that at least one of the things I wanted to watch aired about a month before everything else. I’ll be checking it out later tonight (as well as the previous ONA series), but don’t expect any comments until the season proper starts and I get a chance to take in a bit of everything.

Rio: Rainbow Gate! – I really don’t know if I’m going to watch this one or not. Seems a little fanservicey, and I dunno about the content. Looks to have gambling and fighting to some degree, but I really don’t know if I care that much. We’ll see.

Kimi ni Todoke (2nd season) – Oh, hell yes. There’s no way I’m passing this one up. The first season was fantastic.

Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica – An original anime series by SHAFT with god-tier talent all around and hints of becoming srsbsns (like Nanoha maybe?). Can’t pass this up. This was originally rumored to be an Anime no Chikara project. That ended up not being the case, but the show itself ended up being true, and my excitement from the time I first heard that rumor is still going strong.

IS: Infinite Stratos – Not really sure why I want to watch this one. I had a reason before (I set it to Plan to Watch on my MAL at some point), but I forgot it. *Shrug* I guess I’ll find out when it starts. (It may be because it’s by the same studio that did the Macross Frontier movies.)

Gosick – Something about a gothic lolita girl who is amazing at solving mysteries (with deductive powers that allegedly rival Sherlock Holmes). I dunno much about the series, but it sounds like it has potential on the mystery factor alone. I’ve been a sucker for mystery series lately.

Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? – A boy gets killed and then revived by a necromancer as a zombie, then has to fight magical girls. I’m sorry, but that’s either the worst premise ever, or the best premise ever. I’m gonna find out which.

Fractale – I was going to watch this anyway because the premise sounded neat, but then I found out that the animation looked great and the lead male is voiced by Yuu Kobayashi, so now I can’t wait.

Yumekui Merry – *Shrug* Sounds interesting. I’m not expecting great things, but we’ll see. It’s a J.C. Staff series so it’ll either be pretty good or really bad, depending on how well they adapt it.

Mitsudomoe Zouryouchuu! – Second season of Mitsudomoe. The first season was great, so I’ll be following the second for sure. Though if I had my choice of sequels for Summer 2010 shows, I’d have liked a second season of Seitokai Yakuindomo…

Onii-chan no Koto nanka Zenzen Suki Janain Dakara ne!! – Damn, these shows about little sisters and their older brothers have freaking long titles. Anyway, going to watch this one. Premise sounds good and we have a potential wincest (maybe) relationship in the making.

Houkago no Pleiades – Some thing Gainax is doing with Subaru (the car company). No idea what it is, not really sure I care. It’s Gainax, so I kinda have to watch it just to see what the hell the result will be.

I’m also going to watch these specials/OVAs:
– Mirai Nikki OVA (already did actually, was underwhelming)
– Angel Beats! Another Epilogue & Stairway to Heaven (**** yeah, Angel Beats!)
– MM!: SS (may as well, already watched through the series)
– Issho ni Training 026: Ofuro (shameless fanservice go)
– .hack//Quantum #1 (**** yeah, .hack)
– Kara no Kyoukai: Epilogue (KnK is great, Type-Moon is great)
– Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu ~Matsuri~ (can’t wait for season 2)
– Mitsudomoe (lots of upcoming Mitsudomoe)

I’d list the macross frontier movie as well, but let’s face it. I’m not going to watch a camrip of a movie I really want to see given how amazing it’ll look ripped from a blu-ray.

Well, that’ll do it. Probably nothing from me unless I decided to post something about my Christmas score or a Cross Edge review (if I ever finish it) until my Fall season final impressions. (I’ll be waiting on Zakuro and Arakawa to finish airing after Christmas.)
