I came here thinking there would be a preview chart of several confirmed series for the winter season, just like the other season threads.

I'm sad now.

..Can we delete this and start over when we have something worth talking about?
panic
I was hoping for a troll chart, actually.

^Alright then, a poor otaku's Troll Chart for Winter 2012

  • Code Geass Season 3
  • Generic Harem Anime with a wimpy lead male surrounded by a bunch of tsunderes who are only tsunderes because that's what the fans want
  • Generic Harem Anime with a wimpy lead male surrounded by a bunch of tsunderes who are only tsunderes because that's what the fans want
  • Generic Harem Anime with a wimpy lead male surrounded by a bunch of tsunderes who are only tsunderes because that's what the fans want
  • Puella Magi Urobuchi Gen Laughs Into The Camera For 30 Minutes Nonstop Magica (brought to you commercial-free by Morning Rescue and/or Pulque)
  • Generic Harem Anime with a wimpy lead male surrounded by a bunch of tsunderes who are only tsunderes because that's what the fans want
  • Generic Harem Anime with a wimpy lead male surrounded by a bunch of tsunderes who are only tsunderes because that's what the fans want, but one of them is voiced by Kugimiya Rie
  • Tsundere eggs sausage and tsundere
  • A second season of Fractale
  • An anime adaptation of No Bra
  • A second season of Infinte Stratos—wait, I said that already
  • A show that goes all out and takes risks, by doing crazy and novel things like making the male lead wimpy and unlikeable and surrounding him with a bunch of women who have strange problems with mood swings
  • At least ten shows where a guy walks into his bathroom in his own house and gets assaulted by a girl using the bath, even though she shouldn't be in there
  • At least ten shows where a girl flashes her pantsu to everyone and beats up all the guys nearby for seeing even though its her own damn fault people saw anything
  • Another season of Hyouge Mono, that is also not going to get subbed on time

As proof that I totally did not start this tread too early,

A New Black Rock Shooter anime is set for January!
On noitaminA? Weird. And it looks like it's another new continuity

Something designed to be purely entertaining is horrible of course.

It certainly is when it fails to be either creative or entertaining.

Oh come on.... I'd rather have something fun than something seriously made with drugs like Steins;Gate. It's predecessor is a lot tons better... also made with drugs.
...a little brother should belong to his older sister, right? - Orimura Chifuyu
No. Chaos;Head is godawful. I hate hate hate it. Not because it's generic harem crap, but because it's just festering bile.

Anyway, entertaining stories don't have to be angsty. But generic harems aren't entertaining because they're generic and thus have little novelty and often little in the way of fresh humor.

Ok, give me a combo of tropes that haven't been used in anime. [lol] Since we've already done everything then it follows that everything they do is generic now.

And a second season of Fractale? :/

The funny thing about novelty is if everything is special, then nothing is. I can stomach 4-5 run of the mill shows if it means that one gem shines all the brighter for it.

[up][awesome][awesome][awesome][awesome][awesome][awesome] True that, true believers. I think that one special show is enough for one season.

^^^ Do you have any idea what I'm even talking about? Avoiding being labeled a generic harem... make that a generic story isn't about going out of your way to say something no one has ever said before or picking and choosing from a list of arbitrary storytelling devices and constructing a story around them. It's about making a plot that is not interchangeable with the plot of another story. It's about characters who are engaging and unique without going down a checklist and striking off traits and personality. It's about a setting that stands apart from other settings, or at least doesn't blatantly copy them in the hopes of cashing in on their success.

^^ Not every show has to be amazing, I'll admit. But saying there's nothing wrong with generic shows just strikes me as absurd. If you're going to tell a story, then tell a story.

Oh hey, Black★Rock Shooter's getting an actual anime? Nice.
Sam just... punched his own face and died in a marsh. And Pippin got lost, and Frodo was dead.
