Yet another winter came and went. 24 shows to choose from this time! I always like to watch everything in a year so all was watched yet again unless special circumstances apply! Doing these posts is always super fun with more anime to talk about anyway! Onward with winter aired anime!
Winter this time around gave me a whole lot of anime that I enjoyed. I didn't watch a lot of them till after they were finished airing since I needed an anime break after the holidays. I'll likely do the same this year honestly. I like how it ends up working out for me. Doing things this way puts me even further away from people in the aniblogsphere and on twitter but ehhh I'm finding it harder and harder over the years to want to dive right back into new anime at the start of a new year.
Smile Pretty Cure started but I'm sad to say it didn't live up to my expectations so I'm not too happy about that. At least watching my backlog of Yes, Pretty Cure fills the bill in awesome. The New Prince of Tennis and Danball Senki W weren't watched because I haven't seen any of the rest of their franchises. Someday I hope to get around to PoT but I'm in no hurry to watch a billion episodes of tennis. Amagami SS+I saved myself the trouble with and didn't watch it. I wasn't a fan of the first season and that was way longer than this one. Enough is enough of that for me!
Thermae Romae I have a hard time classifying as a TV show rather than a TV special since it was only 3 episodes. I'd put it at #3 if I did include it though. Man that show was so manly and hot.
Best Show of winter is Natsume Yuujinchou Shi because obviously Poyopoyo Kansatsu Nikki is the show of the year! 2 anime that have awesome cats in it at the top of my list? Can I get anymore predictable?!
Worst Show of winter is Kill Me Baby. I don't understand how anyone could have liked this show... From a terrible OP and ED to ugly characters to ANNOYING AS FUCK characters... Yeah it clearly wasn't made for someone like me.

Surprise enjoyment: Inu x Boku SS honestly wasn't on my radar. Even better that the bf completely loved it too! Ano Natsu de Matteru romance, drama, drama, and aliens... Yup it found it's way into my heart!
Daily Lives of High School Boys cute boys doing cute hilarious things.
There's a few different ones here but all are pretty plain but thankfully not ugly plain. The one we see the most is of course the all blue boy uniform with the red and blue striped tie. The stripped part is a nice twist to the norm. There is a matching girl uniform to the all blue but the bow is all red which is ok by me cause a striped bow would have looked weird. Sadly there is a stupid tan school sweater too...
We of course have the typical sailor suit show up. And we get to see a lovely brown and red plaid uniform with a grey top that can either be the jacket or a school sweater. I find it amusing that all uniforms have red in the tie or bow.
Overall: Ummm no thanks lol.
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!
