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.
Wait what happened to Summer 2010 you ask? Basically I was too busy with real life stuff. We threw an event that I made a lot of decorations for in July and since then there's been plenty of travel and birthday parties to tend to. Now that fall is on it's way and things are calming down again it's time to get back to being a hermit for me and watching current airing anime. Looking at this countdown site and some charts here and there, I've put together this little look of anime to look forward to for fall.
* means I'm looking forward to it... There's not much... Lets start with some season 2's!
*Sora no Otoshimono 2
I love this show to bits. It's loaded with fan-service and the story is pretty darn cliche but I love all the characters to no end because they make me laugh.
*Yumeiro Patissiere 2
Ichigo Amino keeps up with her dream to be a great pastry maker! The show started off pretty meh to me but grew on me a lot as episodes flew by. Now I can't wait each week to see a new one. HAPPY HAPPY MACAROON FUN FUN GO!
*Arakawa Under the Bridge 2
The wacky cast is back for more adventures under the bridge they call home.
Hakuouki: Shinsengumi Kitan 2
S1 wasn't that great but it wasn't too terrible either. I'll watch it for the sake of completion.
Letter Bee 2
I hope there's less crying...
*A Certain Magical Index 2
Motte To Love-Ru
I know nothing about this show as I haven't seen the first one and have no intention of getting around to it this year or ever probably. Maybe when I run out of anime. Could be sooner than later. Bottom line. This is the only anime I will not be watching.
*Psychic Detective Yakumo AKA Shinrei Tantei Yakumo
Well his red eye there gives him a special ability to see ghosts and spirits! Makes me think of Natsume Yuujinchou but with more mystery attached to it because he wants to help them get to the afterlife.
Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt
Idol angels sent to Earth to fight ghosts... The animation looks totally interesting so I'm game.
Lots of manga fans are looking forward to this one. I have a feeling it may fall flat for me. But if the characters win me over it could be amazing. Boys helping each other make a manga just doesn't seem all that interesting to me. But if it is mixed with great characters and some comedy, it'll win me over like Doujin Work did.
The World God only Knows AKA Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai
About a guy who is good at playing games and winning 2D girls hearts... Righto. This one has a lot of hype around it like Bakuman but I'm skeptical about this one not being all that great.
Hope it actually comes out this time 😛 I'm a fan of the live action movies and read a few comic here and there. So it shall be interesting to see in come to life in anime form.
Invasion! Squid Girl AKA Shinryaku! Ika Musume
Moe teaches you not to pollute the oceans or squid loving girls will come for you! lol I can't even begin...
This one makes me think of B Gata H Kei but it's the males turn to be all weird and perverted. (Like "normal") Instead of making it known like the girl in B Gata H Kei he tries to hide it.
Yosuga no Sora
Togainu no Chi
Makes me think of Bus Gamer but I think this will actually go somewhere. Probably not far but I can hope. Survival, crime, war. I hope for lots of action and blood. The, from what I can tell, all boy cast seems interesting to me as well XD
Tantei Opera Milky Holmes
I like detectives so it was only a matter of time before moe got it's hands on it.
Star Driver: Kagayaki no Takuto
Interesting robots I'll say that much. Kinda creepy actually. The idea sounds so generic though but there's a lot of people from a tonne of series I love working on this so who knows.
Otome Yokai Zakuro
"It’s the Meiji Era in a slightly alternate Japan" This sentence is so hilarious to me because looking at the picture above... DO YOU REALLY HAVE TO SAY "slightly alternate" XD I'm not sure who the target audience is here because of the "fox" ear girls and pretty boys in uniforms. It probably will be slow and boring but could be interesting if given a chance.
My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute AKA Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai
Lolicon bait. Sure to be a hit with most loli fans.
Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru
A maid who wants to be a detective... oh why? Could have some laughs, but I'm not holding my breath.
Hyakka Ryoran Samurai Girls
Maybe not quite Queen's blade since it's about "school girls". So I'll go with perhaps it's going to be what the Real Bout High School anime should have been!
Has a Vampire in it... Harem... Eroge Visual Novel... It has already failed for me.
I don't know about this one. It feels like it's going to be this seasons Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei but instead of a male it's a female. Throw in some otaku stuff of course.
Nougyou Musume AKA Agricultural Girls
This is going to be short 3 minute episodes about some girls that love to grow things. Hope it's good cause it looks adorable.
There's a bunch of ova's coming out but who knows when most really come out and well there's a lot of them that I haven't seen their series or really want to see. I'm looking at you Hidamari Sketch. >.<
At this point I have no idea which titles I'm going to blog. Suggestions welcome ^_^ Overall I'm kinda meh with this line up. I generally never complain about such things because there's always SOMETHING to look at. When only 2 new shows out of like 20 or so that I'm really interested in are airing it's kinda a let down.
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... >.<
