Like this winter I'm only going to watch season continuations and wait till everything else has finished airing. I will be picking a few that I feel I will like to keep up with though. This brings my total up quite a lot from 6 shows in winter. I dropped 2 of those to watch at a later date because after 2 episodes they just weren't doing it for me. Another and Mouretsu Pirates will be better off marathoned, I hope... All the others keep pleasing me greatly. Especially Poyopoyo!
Since Spring is a busy time of year anime wise my total jumps from 4 watching titles in winter to 11 new titles for spring! For a full list of anime going to air click here and here. I won't be picking up any new anime to blog because I think I still have my hands full with what my current plans are. (Like always)
Eureka Seven is getting another season focusing on another young boy. I wasn't a huge fan of the first show but it did have some really great moments and when some characters weren't being annoying great characters too. Hilariously enough I'm excited for more Queen's Blade! Gotta love big busty ladies fighting among each other for an awesome title!
Haiyore is finally getting a full anime. They made a lot of shorts for it that's for sure so I knew it was only going to be a matter of time before it got a full series. Can't say I care about it though because the shorts didn't do it for me. So when I'm not pleased with the shorts it's generally a no brainer that I won't care about the full version. Arashi no Yoru Ni I can't believe is getting a full anime. The movie was great but thinking that this series is going to span 52 episodes is just odd to me. I doubt anyone will want to sub all of it anyway.
Season 2's: Fate/Zero (YAY!!!) Kimi to Boku (more boys being cute for another season) Kore Wa Zombie Desu Ka? (S1 was entertaining enough to get me to want to watch a S2) Phi Brain: Kami no Puzzle (This is a very fun shounen show about solving puzzles. It's kind of a sleeper hit imo since it's getting another season and all) Saki (Girls playing boardgames... I was meh for the first one but meh enough to want to watch another season of it. I love boardgames!) Yuru Yuri (YAY!!!)
The only new anime I'm looking forward to is Space Brothers. I'm expecting something more awesome than Planetes. Now you might be thinking "Planetes is the best! Nothing can beat it!" or "Man if you weren't swooned with the anime read the manga!" 1. It's hard to get me to read manga and 2. I'm a strange person when it comes to me and SPACE stuff I like. It's pretty random actually. Something has to set me off in order to REALLY enjoy it for it's spacey goodness! This is partially why I'm not too pleased with Mouretsu Pirates.
There's a few others I have my eyes on that people have been talking about. Like this Mysterious Girlfriend X. It doesn't look like my kind of thing but it could be good. Hiiro no Kakera to girly it up because Hakuouki Hekketsuroku didn't do it enough for me. Dusk Maiden of Amnesia could be good but I have a feeling it will go the Gosick route for me. Kingdom looks like it will be right up my alley but I have suspicions that it might not get subs anytime soon. I'll wait and see what happens if I'll pick any of these up.
There is only one anime everyone needs to concern themselves with coming up in winter 2012.
Poyopoyo Kansatsu Nikki!
That is all...
Seriously though I'm also looking forward to a grand total of 5 other anime that will be airing. Another (Looks interesting), Brave10 (Could be good), Daily Lives of High School Boys (Because I'll need something to fill the Kimi to Boku void), Mouretsu Pirates (Fuck yeah!), and Season 4 of Natsume Yuujinchou!
Using the chart from here. I give you the below edited for my preferences:
8 anime made it to the super looking forward to and will watch. Hilariously only 2 of those titles aren't season 2's and of course they both happen to be the noitaminA titles Un-Go and Guilty Crown. The only 2 season 2's I don't give a crap about are Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi (lol yaoi) and Shana III (lol tsundere). I'm currently trying to watch Shana Season 1 and it's not going so well enjoyment wise so who knows if I'll even get it watched by the time III starts. I find it rather amazing that Shana is the only show I have to watch to catch up with what's airing. Generally I got 2-3 titles to do that for when Spring and Fall roll around but only 1 is just a little shocking for me.
The one anime I'm most pumped up about is Hunter X Hunter. I love the original series and always hoped that they would make more. I really can't wait for it! I dunno what I'll do if it disappoints me. 🙁
Gundam Age has been getting a lot of flack but I still think it'll be enjoyable. I gotta watch it anyway cause then I wouldn't be able to say I've watched ALL gundam titles! (Somehow I made it through all of SEED) Still waiting on more awesome Gundam Unicorn. An episode of that should be out pretty soon.
Ben-To has me interested for the silly factor. I don't really know what to expect but I do expect to laugh! It's probably the silliest anime I'm looking forward to this fall. I do hope that Kimi to Boku proves to be entertaining and not some kind of Ouran knock off without a reverse harem. Horizon on the Middle of Nowhere I hope it wow's me. I just want something that I think might be trash to actually be good.
I really hope that Last Exile and the new Fate/Zero do not disappoint me. I probably could live with Fate making me sad but if Last Exile is crap... I dunno... 🙁
I'll be interested in how Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai AKA "I got me no Friends "will do. There's a fair bit of hype about it but I'm still not so comfortable with it personally. Something about it just screams run away to me. Kinda like how Tamayura does along with those other few red highlighted titles...
I won't be blogging any of these but I might start that strange Busou Shinki Moon Angel soon because it's got 5 minutes episodes but I haven't decided on that yet. I've been doing pretty good with the Nyanpire posts so if that keeps going I plan on keeping up! I'm totally going to re-start blogging TORIKO as it's a shame I had to stop. It'll be fun catching up with it because GUTS GUTS GUTS is awesome!
Fall anime is going to be exciting! YAY for season 2's of shows I actually like! Bakuman, Ika, and Working woooot!
I rather like the circle and have a legend attached to it way of doing these posts, so that's what I'll be doing from now on. So here's yet another one of Scamp's charts modified to suit my needs.
Click image to actually read it.
I'll never include any ova's or movies in these posts because they are just so random and a pain in the ass to keep track of for the one person in probably a thousand that would care. Yet again I chopped off 2 of the bottom anime that were kiddy ones that no one will care about. Hilariously enough I actually enjoy Cardfight Vanguard from last season that I did the same thing to. I decided to add in an extra category for those anime that I just don't care about one way or another. I'm hoping a few of these will end up in my "like" category after viewing.
I'm looking forward to 10 anime that will be airing which I find a little dull with over 40 new listings. They are mostly season 2's since we have a lot of those this spring, 8 of them in total and 5 of them are must watches for me. Gintama being the #1 that I can't wait for among the sequels. Kaiji is a very close second. For original anime it's totally Toriko. I LOVE the ova to bits and I almost went and started reading the manga because of how awesome those 30 minutes were. Also I don't care what anyone says, X-Men WILL be awesome! Hyouge Mono I'm super interested in but I can't really explain why other than I like the era and the proposed characters.
The noitaminA block looks interesting but I don't wanna get my hopes up for it like I did with Winter. Both anime could honestly go either way for me and like always I'm hoping for in the "like" direction. Deadman Wonderland I've seen a lot of hype and praise for it so I'm hoping it's not all just talk there.
The facepalm award goes to Lotte no Omocha. Semen and lolis... Opposed to Seikon no Qwaser where it's breast milk, so suppose I shouldn't talk but... I'll take the mature boobs over young girls drinking magical youth making semen... I mean I kinda like the idea but I don't like that the girl is 10 years old.
I might actually just watch only the "must watches" for me and the of interest ones making the total 16. I always try to tell myself to save everything else for when they are finished airing. But that'll probably fail like always and I'll watch it all in one go as they air. I will admit that over 40 new current airing anime does scare me to try and keep up with so maybe my only watch those 16 anime goal will work this time around.
Ah well, here's to another season!
EDIT: I'm going to try my hand at blogging Toriko each week. Maybe this time I'll get past the first episode XD
Here's a totally lazy picture post from Scamp's chart with my picks circled. (Although considering I had to tag the post with all this anime it sure didn't feel lazy at all...)
Click image to actually read it. 😛 (Yay Paint!)
I didn't include any OVA's, specials or any of that stuff. I honestly don't understand why people get so excited about those series as much as they do. The air dates are so random/spread apart that it's hard to care a lot about them until they are completely finished and actually available. That just might be my point of view on the matter though... I really don't like waiting around for episode 2 to come out 6+++ months later...
I also skipped out on 2 kiddy shows (Cardfight Vanguard and Usagigoya) that are at the bottom of the original chart. No one really cares about those 2 anime anyway. 😛 11 out of 20 anime in this list are ones I'm looking forward so that'll be fun. Sad that 9 of those don't look so good to me but I'm sure one or 2 among those titles will shine through to enjoyment for me.
The 2 anime I'm most looking forward to are Level E and Wolverine. I hope they live up to what I want them to. Ironman didn't disappoint me so I don't think Wolverine will either.
The anime I facepalm at the most that will be airing is Oniichan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janain Dakara ne AKA I Don't Like You at All, Big Brother! It feels like they are trying to take Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai AKA My Little Sister Can't Be This Cute (long titles are long...) and turn it into incest... Which to be honest is what a lot of people want from OreNo Imouto... We'll see if it holds out though. I don't have high hopes for it at all.
