I'm not the only one posting spring line up thoughts late so that makes me happy. With the help of awesome charts from Chartfag and from an Anime Countdown site to help me schedule my anime, I've looked around a lot to see who has been saying what and what I'm interested in seeing myself. Unlike last season this one has a lot more to choose from so the chances of finding a lot of awesome always go up along with finding the terrible. Chu-Bra holds my title for worst show of the year so far, although Kiss X Sis could upset Chu-Bra from this title. Scamp has created a very nice preview as well which was very fun to read and gives a lot of extra little background information to each anime.
* means I'm looking forward to it. Onward!
Angel Beats Everyone is looking forward to this one... I'm skeptical. I have a strong feeling I'm not going to like this because it's made by the same people that made Kanon and Clannad... But this one does have a different formula than their usual dish. Action. Don't screw it up for me studio Key.
* Arakawa Under the Bridge I think this would be the one I'm looking forward to the most aside from the several ROTK anime. Girl meets boy, they have to live under a bridge because that's where she lives. lol ok.
* Battle Brave Warriors (SD Gundam Sangokuden (ROTK) It's going to be fun seeing ROTK characters played out in mecha form 😀
* Betrayal (Uragiri wa Boku no Namae wo Shitte Iru) Angsty bishies with yaoi tones. Could be good, probably will be average or even below average.
B-Type H-Group Looks like a trashy smut manga. Could be entertaining in a groan kind of way as most smut is.
Giant Killing Football (soccer) anime. I'll give it a whirl. Never watched an anime based on this sport before oddly enough.
Hakuouki: Shinsengumi Kitan Anime based off a game hardly ever do it for me. But since I haven't played the game it could be ok as I have no expectations for it that way.
Heroman I think it's going to flop... I'll be very VERY surprised if I like it.
* Hetalia 3 already started and I'm already very much a fan.
Ichiban Ushiro no Dai Maou More magical academy anime but this has lots and lots of fanservice. Gonna be another boring harem trying to be unique.
Kaichou wa Maid-sama Ladies vs Butlers without the fanservice. (At least not to that extent) Definitely looks like it's more aimed at girls than boys this time around. Gives off an Ouran feel to it for me.
Kiss X Sis Incest is fun but not when it's done like this. The ova was... Special...
K-On! Season 2 I watched S1 with a friend and that same friend wishes me to watch it with him again. I'll do it for him as I really have no interest in watching a S2 of girls playing instruments in school. Image above done by ~shaoron.
Mayoi Neko Overun Nyaa! Loli cat in a box. Oh boy. I love cats and all but I don't think this anime is going to get very far enjoyment wise unless something super interesting happens plot wise.
* Rainbow - Nisha Rokubo no Shichinin Dark and gloomy. It's about some boys that go through hard times but they always look towards a better place.
***** Romance Of The Three Kingdoms After almost a year of waiting the time has finally come for this remake to be aired in Japan. I loved the first one when I watched it last summer (Made it my 1000th anime watched) and thought to myself, wouldn't it be great if they remade this with today's graphics. Little more than a month later this showed up on my radar and my wish had been granted. Now I can only hope that someone will pick it up to be subbed as other really awesome ROTK anime seem to not have quite the following (Souten Kouro).
* Sarai ya Goyou (House of Five Leaves) Edo-era Japan with the shoguns. I'm there.
* Senko no Night Raid Fighting secret wars in China, I'm game. Looks like a lot of fun with pretty animation.
* Shin Koihime Musou Otome Tairan Huzza more of my black haired beauty and her interesting friends are back for more crazy action and odd ecchi moments.
* Working! Read my PreRelease thoughts here. Basically I like it.
Yojo-han Shinwa Taikei Looks quirky so we're in for some weird animation. Plot seems to be interesting enough as well following a person reminiscing about their past.
Yutori-chan 1-4 already aired. She works for a telemarketing company. Random stories and fun occur including some close encounters with the boss, cellphones, and illness! Could be cute. I like that it's short episodes.
That's it for everything that I will be watching/airing. Oddly there are a lot of things I'm interested in and of course a lot that I have no interest in either. There are always lots of OVA's and some movies that come out but I won't really bother talking about those. GINTAMA movie!!! Also everyone seems to be really hyped about the ova Black Rock Shooter. I personally don't care either way about it but I will watch to see exactly what all the hype is about. Here are some second seasons or beyond that I probably will not get around to. But I can hope. 😛
Jewelpet 2nd and Marie and Gali 2 No one will probably pick these up because both their S1's were dropped.
Ookiku 2 and Major 6 Both are about baseball... ewww. But I did just get Ookiku S1 so since it's only 25 episodes and ONE season to worry about, I'll be watching it next week most likely. I hope it's good and not boring like almost all other baseball anime I have watched.
Ikkitousen If I get around to watching all the other seasons I'll pick it up. Highly unlikely. I do want to start this series someday though. I'm a sucker for Romance of the Three Kingdoms knockoffs as you all already know.
Ring ni Kakero 1 Highly will try to watch the older one(s) first. But since I haven't even done that with Cobra it's unlikely that it'll happen. Although it is 24 episodes between the 2 of them so it's likely to be watched next week along with Ookiku.
Iron Man Originally was on the line up but sadly will be delayed till Fall 🙁 The live action movie Iron Man 2 will have to make do till then. Can't wait!
Bakugan... We'll see as I just finished S1 and half way through S2... Don't ask why...
Hime Chen! Otogi Chikku Idol Lilpri Uhhhg what a title. I honestly don't even know what this is about. Something to do with card games and magical girls. No thanks. Looks like Pretty Cure mixed with Mermaid Melody Pichi Pichi Pitch... >.<
