Fall 2014 Anime Chart and shows I’ll watch

September 24, 2014

????????????????????????

Barely a week left until the season starts, so it’s about time to get this done.

Shows:
– Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken
– Fate/stay night Unlimited Blade Works
– World Trigger
– Grisaia no Kajitsu
– Sora no Method
– Hi*sCoool! SeHa Girl
– Ore, Twintail ni Narimasu.
– Girlfriend (Kari)

Other:
– Kill la Kill OVA – Already watched this, actually. It was super good.
– Shinryaku! Ika Musume OVA
– Strike Witches: Operation Victory Arrow OVA – OH GOD THIS IS OUT??? Subs where? WHERE?
– D-Frag! OVA – Still no subs on this one, as far as I’ve seen?
– Prisma Illya OVA
– Zvezda OVA – Want. Want so much. Zvezda is amazing and apparently they’re making an idol unit.
– WataMote OVA
– Seitokai Yakuindomo* OVA -This has been the show that keeps on giving and I love it.
– YuruYuri Nachuyachumi! – Apparently I never watched the other OVA either. *Shrug* I’ll get around to it, I guess.

I’m still waiting on a few shows to wrap up my final impressions for Summer. It’ll be some time next week before I’m able to make that post since I have a Monday show to watch and possibly a Wednesday show. (Is Yama no Susume S2 ending after one season or will it continue into Fall? No idea and subs are slow because Crunchy sucks, so I don’t know where it stands.)

Summer 2012 Chart 1.0 and shows I’ll be watching

June 23, 2012

Chart by cowboybibimbop.

Mul-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse – I will watch this one… eventually. I actually have to get around to reading the VNs first.

Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate – No reason, just thought it looked like something I might enjoy.

Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru! – Premise alone has me watching this one.

Hagure Yuusha no Estetica – I dunno, the premise sounds like it could be good, but I don’t know a thing about the series.

Rinne no Lagrange 2 – This one’s a given, being that I gushed about the first part for the longest time.

Sword Art Online – I have to see this one. People won’t shut up about it.

Dog Days’ – Eh, I like the first one well enough. It wasn’t exactly an all time favorite, but I’m more than ready to have some more of it.

Ebiten: Kouritsu Ebisugawa Koukou Tenmon-bu – Well, the premise sold me. I guess I’m up for some cute animu fujoshi torturing a poor kid.

Joshiraku – Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei’s writer and Toradora’s artist made a series? And it’s getting an anime? And you’re thinking I need a reason to watch it?

Oda Nobuna no Yabou – I’m cool with some genderbent history.

TARI TARI – I need a show like this every season to keep my soul clean.

Kokoro Connect – I’ve been after this series since I first saw the novel cover without even knowing what it was about. I never followed up on it when it got a manga (I don’t even know if it was scanlated) but now that it has an anime, I’m all over it. I hope it lives up to my unreasonable expectations.

Yuru Yuri ♪♪ – The first season wasn’t that great. Kinda middle ground in terms of quality and entertainment, but I guess I need to see more TOSHINO KYOUKO.

Specials, OVAs, and movies:
– Rinne no Lagrange: Kamogawa Days – Apparently this is out today.
– Tamayura: Hitotose unaired episode – Had no idea this was coming ❤
– The iDOLM@STER Special – Still waiting on subs for this…
– Kiss x Sis – This one’s a long time coming.
– Hyouka
– Seitokai Yakuindomo – I’m glad we’re not done with these, but S2 please.
– Shinryaku! Ika Musume
– Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha: The Movie 2nd A’s – Not until blu-ray, of course, but damn I’m excited for this one. Gotta get me some movie-quality Vita.

I’m not really sure when any of this stuff starts (which is why I usually go as close as I can to the season starting before I do this), but I assume nothing I’m watching (OVAs aside) starts until at least July…

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.

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.

Fall 2010 Initial Impressions

October 11, 2010

Apologies for this one starting late, but gg had issues getting Soredemo 1 out the door, so I had to wait on it to be subbed… then I marathoned all of Toradora and Toradora SOS on DVD yesterday, leaving myself with no time to actually sit down and watch it. No plans to pick anything else up this season, but as always, that could change. Let’s get down to what I know I’m watching this season.

Fall 2010 Chart is out

August 22, 2010

As always, courtesy of Chartfag.

And yes, I do know there was already a Fall chart out by someone else, but lolbrandloyalty or whatever.

Well, last time I made one of these, I said the season wasn’t looking too good. Turns out I ended up watching about as many shows as I did from the Spring season, and I haven’t really been disappointed with anything I’ve picked up. Hopefully Spring will continue to please (everything since last fall has, really) and I’ll end up with a lot of good shows.

I’ve gotta say right off the bat, though, I don’t think I’ll be watching Iron Man like I planned. I’ve heard nothing but bad things about it since the early screening. I’m going to wait for opinions to come in on it. Also, I know I’m not watching the Wolverine one when it comes out because I have no interest in a guy with a super mullet fighting ninjas.

Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt – I’ve been looking over this one since info first came out. It’s… interesting. I’ll definitely have to see if it will live up to all of the hype surrounding it, but as a Gainax series, it has pretty good odds of doing so.

Bakuman – I literally know nothing about this series, but I hear about it from time to time and I’m always a fan of the “aspiring manga/doujin artist” plot, so I’ll be checking this one out.

Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru – SHAFT comedy, nuff said. Again, I know absolutely nothing about it.

Shinryaku! Ika Musume – Don’t know anything about it, but it looks cute and I’ve heard that the manga is hilarious, so I’m game.

Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge – I wasn’t super thrilled with the early parts of the first season of Arakawa, but it grew on me a bit by the later parts. I’m hoping the second season picks up where the first left off and maintains that quality, otherwise I’ll be dropping it like a bad habit.

The World Only God Knows – The manga has been on my backlog for a while (since I don’t really read scanlations, I don’t really ever get around to it). I’ve heard nothing but good things about it, though, so I’ll be much more likely to get into it through the anime. Gotta check it out.

Yosuga no Sora – Again, I know nothing. I have heard the title before, though, and the premise and art style look interesting, so I’ll give it a shot.

To Aru Majutsu no Index 2 – Oh hell yeah, baby. More Index. There’s no reason for me not to watch this. Game on.

My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute (Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai) – People have been talking a lot about the manga and upcoming anime adaptation of this, and to be quite honest, it sounds awesome. It’s one of the titles I’m most looking forward to this season.

I don’t know how much I’ll end up picking up based on popular opinion, but there’s a ton of stuff I’m already interested in, so it probably won’t be as much as I did for the Summer season. Also, I’m apparently up for a good bit of experimentation this season. We’ll see how that works out.
