Well it shouldn't be that surprising given that they're both animated by A-1, which is Aniplex's own anime studio. Now that I think about it, it might be a miracle if we ever see another A-1 title get picked up by someone other than Aniplex USA, since they probably get first dibs.

Not necessarily. From the New World was picked up relatively recently by someone other than Aniplex. Fist dibs is only that - first dibs. Anyone could take them if Aniplex declines to.

So it's more that we should expect all of the anticipated A-1 series to go to Aniplex.

I'll Check out the Hokuto No Ken's artist's new series, as well as the new symphogear(Especially considering it's being done by the Director of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's), the new Rozen Maiden, Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou, Blood Lad, and Gatchaman Crowds.

Silver Spoon anime adaptation better be blindingly shiny.

Time to make the list!

Definite Picks:
  • Senyuu S2: Has its charm.
  • Symphogear: Welcome back.
  • Gifuu Doudou: Dat testosterone.
  • DXD: Despite S1 being full of fanservice and a story that my grade school self could have written. There are some who tell me that the LNs get really badass, so I'll hold them to that.
  • Free!: Swimming! I'll be honest though, mostly gonna watch so I can join the inevitable thread for it; I'm interested in the audience reactions.
  • C3-bu: Survival gaming has got my interest. Going in with low expectations.
  • Danganropa: Very much my type of story. I heard the game even has shades of Ace Attorney! The character designs are good too, hardly what one would call generic.
  • Rozen Maiden: Seems like a reboot or something? Thought this would be a good chance to dive into this franchise.
  • Servant x Service: Working life comedy-slash-SOL(that is for once not about high school girls). Sold.
  • Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou: Original series. Looks nice.
  • Prisma Ilya: No need to explain.
  • Monogatari: My body is ready.
  • Kami-sama no Inai Nichiyoubi: A fantasy/mystery show with a very interesting setting. Animated by Madhouse. Right up my alley.
  • Uchouten Kazoku: Dat PV.
  • Blood Lad: Will be reading the manga alongside the anime.
  • Makai Ouji: For you, Chiaki Kon. Looks like a good shoujo as well.
  • TWGOK: Goddess Arc~
  • Watamote: Time to see what the fuss is about.
  • Neptunia: Console warz
  • Gatchaman: Gatchaman!

Might Watch:
  • Tamayura: Haven't watched S1, but continuity doesn't seem a big deal.
  • Inu to Hasami wa Tsukaiyou: The premise is the standard kind of weird. Honestly doesn't pique my interest, but I'll give it a shot.
  • Brothers Conflict: I gave up on Amnesia fairly quickly, and I'd like to be fair to the reverse harem genre so I might pick this up. Helps that this is apparently based on a novel.
  • Fantasista Doll: Looks decent enough.
  • Kimi no Iru Machi: Maybe I can rage about it like everyone else!
  • Love Lab: Yuyushiki's been a pleasant surprise, but I'm not sure about watching more yuri-isms.

One or the Other:
  • Kitakubu Katsudou Kiroku VS Kiniro Mosaic: Both look generic. Leaning towards Kiniro Mosaic as I think I've heard of the name before, and I prefer its art style.

No Thanks:
  • Kingdom: Didn't watch and have no plan to watch S1.
  • Recorder: Ditto above.
  • Ro Kyu Bu: I'll have Kuroko next season.
  • Genshiken: Don't feel like watching it. I'm reading the manga anyway.
  • Teekyuu: ... yeah, no thanks.
  • Hakkenden: Huh, it's you again.
  • Silver Spoon: Manga's good enough for me.
  • Milky Holmes: Still going strong I see.

Once again I end up picking up more shows that I thought I would.

Has there been any confirmation on Senki Zesshou Symphogear G's episode count?
I don't fight for good, and I don't fight for evil, I JUST FIGHT!

Not that I know of. Probably safe to assume that it'll be one cour, though
After looking at's season preview I’ll be trying out these shows:

Senyuu 2

Gifuu Doudou!! Kanetsugu to Keiji

Stella Jogakuin Koutouka C3-Bu


Servant x Service

Kami-sama no Inai Nichiyoubi

Blood Lad

Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaete mo Omaera ga Warui!

Gin no Saji


I will probably end up dropping something as I go through the season. In all honesty I want to get through some of my backlog, especially a few animes I bought at Otakon last year and still haven’t watched.

Holy crap, there's not much that catches my eye this time. (Servant X Service maybe... Perhaps Silver Spoon, other than that? Ehh...) Mind, the short descriptions we get aren't neccessarily accurate, but still, sheesh, this ain't looking good. There doesen't even seem to be much snark-fuel.

It really seems to mostly be sequels to stuff I haven't watched.

I could go nuts anytime, considering that I have work everyday for July. Anyway, stuffs that are definite watch are Fantasista Doll, Genei Wo Kakeru Taiyou, Neptunia, Senyuu & Servant X Service, plus Kanetsugu To Keiji, Kitakubu Katsudou Kiroku, Kiniro Mosaic and Rozen Maiden if I got additional spare time.

There are... seven things I am provisionally interested in. I doubt I'll even get started on most of them.
[up] At least it's more than the 1 I'm provisionally interested in (Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi).

I'm starting to like anime adaptations of light novels a little too much.

"IT'S OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAAAND!!" *crushes calculator*
Fate/kaleid Liner Prisma Illya seems to have been postponed for some undisclosed reason.note 

EDIT: Oh, wait, it was just some pre-broadcast thing that got cancelled. That's what I get for listening to a tumblr blog on this stuff.

Originally there was supposed to be some sort of special, titled 'Prisma Scope', to be broadcast on July 5th, one week before the TV broadcast. That's now been postponed indefinately.
Yeah, I just saw on ANN. I really wish I know how to read Japanese.

Crunchyroll's begun to announce their lineup — right now it consists of the sequels to Recorder and Ransell, Teekyu, and Senyu, as well as Dog & Scissors, Servant x Service, and Free!.

EDIT: And Funi starts out with Brothers Conflict and Danganronpa.

So, Inu Hasa is decent. Not really my type of humour, but I can see it getting a decent following

Also, there's a low-resolution raw of the first half of Fantasista Doll's first episode out. It's okay. Will need to see the full thing to make any kind of judgement, though

Now to wait until Thursday for anything I'm interested in to come out. Whee...

[up] The Female Protagnonist seems to be into Döner, thats a major plus!

But yeah I will watch the second episode and then see if I will drop it then, so far it didn't do much for me.
Inu Hasa was actually pretty decent and funny. Except for the scissors part of the equation. That was as bad and uncomfortable as I thought it'd be.
Don't mind me. I'm just a creepy little lurker.

[up] I'm just reminded of Mysterious Girlfriend X.

Watching the sample opening clip of D&S made me go NOPE, NICE TRY SHOW.

Yeah the whole animal-abuse-played-for-fun thing is quite uncomfortable

What is the anime thing with scissors right now, though? The Severing Crime Edge, Dangan Ronpa, Mysterious Girlfriend X, Dog and Scissors, and I'm sure there's one or two I'm forgetting.
