Second Saki: Achiga-hen PV:
Preliminary BD/DVD solicitations are out for Saki Achiga Hen. 6 volumes with 2 episodes each would lead to 12 episodes for the series.
RandomC's preview is up. Finally
Secret CharacterOmni and now Divine is gone. I hope Verdant pulls this off since RC isn't a one man show anymore... That said, I am not ready for Accel World!
Finally I can start choosing what to watch, and to be honest, I'm only interested on Hyouka (mainly becuase it's by Kyo Ani) and Saki, though I don't know if I'll watch the latter since I haven't seen the first season and I still have to watch 8 episodes of 5 shows from the previous season. I usually watch everything I'm interested on and what I'm basicly indiferent too, which leaves me somewhere around 14 to 20 shows, but just by looking at that list I doubt I'll even pick up 8 shows this season, even though the huge amount of them.

Already watching Ozuma, 'cause it's Leiji. Planning on watching:
Secret CharacterD: We have the same problem... My HD isn't apparently ready for this....
Medaka Box: I'm thinking Gainax can do this trippy, meta-overdosed manga justice.If it even gets that far. The beginning is relatively boring and I could see it being canceled before then.
It's a late-night anime, so it probably has a limited run to begin with. And fighting series adaptations tend to speed through the early parts. Though, the character page on the website is limited to early characters, so I don't really know

Three StepsI meant canceled as in "they never bother making a second season." Very few things are let run indefinitely nowadays.
I'd be fine with that if what we actually get is good enough. I can still read the manga, after all.
Cure CandyLets see my list will be
I am become death, Destroyer of worldsDefinitely gonna check out Zetman the most of this season.

SpoilerloverI just hope it won't be heavily censored.
I am become death, Destroyer of worldsIt airs in a late night time slot, so it shouldn't be.
^_^Eureka Sven AO and Hyouka are the only 'must watch' this season. Rock Lee I'm on the fence between 'Must Watch' and 'Interesting'. Most of the stuff looks interesting though, so I'll give it a whirl. I'll be watching a couple of the episodes of the Sphere VA thing regardless because Ayahi Takagaki's in it.

^_^Double post because of the Eureka Seven AO PV:
Secret CharacterVoting Uchuu Kyou-something as the most BS anime this season: it bored my PC to death....
^_^Is it that bad? I haven't seen it yet and it looked slow paced (the good kind of slow paced). Springtime of Youth is so cute yet dirty.

Impressions thus far: Natsuiro Kiseki: Decent Slice of Life drama. Surprisingly high production values... and a supernatural element that I have no idea what to make of. So I'd call the first episode a success, in that it makes me want to see the second, if only to see where the show is heading Accel World: Very high production values... and nothing else of worth. No plot to speak of, characters are bland cliches, the character designs are mediocre with one exception, and the fight got no real use out of the excessive budget ZETMAN: Very fast paced. Lots of big emotional moments that meant nothing to me because I had no idea who these people are. I remember finding the manga rather slow, but this is going too far the other way Shirokuma Cafe: I was expecting something weirder from the premise. Not my style Lupin III: Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna: This I like! Reminds me of James Bond back when it didn't suck. Except more stylish

^_^Accel World is already subbed? Man, I was looking forward to a .hack-esque series (Plot-wise, design-wise was already too different, even just looking at the PV) with a Moe-eh nerd lead! I liked Shirokuma if only for it's... girlyness, I guess. ZETMAN is just weird, I hate it when stuff starts with a seemingly already built canon and you feel like somehow you've missed a couple of the first episodes. Haven't seen Kiseki yet. So I can't talk.
Accel World had the first two episodes pre-air on the first or so, and it got subbed pretty quickly. And, yeah, pretty much a straight-up fighting series, not really .hack at all. There's Sword Art Online next season, though, which looks plottier

☆♥☆Shirokuma Cafe is pretty good. Gakkatsu! is fairly average.
Secret CharacterActually Accel World's world building starts slow. How you think about it is forgivable. I should know: I helped with the trope page and read the LN and the manga.
