Spring 2012 Anime:

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.

[up]Omni 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:
  • Uchuu Kyoudai: Mmm, tastes like Planetes.
  • Kimi to Boku: Since I went through the trouble of watching the first season
  • Zetman: Because it's friggin' Zetman!
  • Shirokuma Cafe: Looks cute.
  • Acchi Kocchi: Probably gonna be my dose of cliche for the season.
  • Natsuiro Kiseki: Wasn't actually planning on watching it 'til I found out it's being animated by Sunrise. It looks gorgeous so far, and it's not like my schedule is packed.
  • Accel World: Why do you wanna watch it? That's probably why I wanna watch it.
  • Fate Zero: One of the best shows I've watched, so hell yes I'm gonna watch it.
  • Medaka Box: I'm thinking Gainax can do this trippy, meta-overdosed manga justice.
  • Mysterious Girlfriend X: Awkward love story: check.
  • Phi Brain 2: How the hell did this get a second season? There's not even that many plot threads to resolve... plus in terms of entertainment it was only serviceable. Huh. Gonna watch anyway because I already watched through the entirety of Season 1.
  • Tasogare blah: Supernatural mystery that's most likely better than Another. Sign me up.
  • Lupin: ... Lupin!
  • Haiyore! ~~~: Cthulhu Mythos plus SOL. Sounds crazy enough to work.
  • Jormungand: Anti-heroes, arms merchants, awesome title, animated by White Fox.
  • Sakamichi no Apollon: Made by the Cowboy Bebop dudes, SOL but not the usual kind, jazz music. Interesting.
  • Tsuritama: Fantastical SOL made by the guy who directed Mononoke and [C].
  • Shining Hearts: I stand corrected: this is definitely my dose of cliche for the season.
  • Hyouka: Kyo Ani. "Nuff said.

... I thought I wasn't gonna watch a lot this season, but apparently I will.

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

I meant canceled as in "they never bother making a second season." Very few things are let run indefinitely nowadays.

[up] I'd be fine with that if what we actually get is good enough. I can still read the manga, after all.

Cure Candy
Lets see my list will be

  • Kuromajo-san ga Tooru
  • Yurumates
  • Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? OF THE DEAD
  • Sengoku Collection
  • Acchi Kocchi
  • Natsuiro Kiseki
  • Saki Achiga-hen episode of side-A
  • Haiyore! Nyaruko-san
  • Sakamichi no Apollon
  • Hyouka
  • AKB0048

[up]I just hope it won't be heavily censored.

It 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.

Voting 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[lol].

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.

[up][up][up]Actually 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.
