I have now rejoined the ranks of the anime-watching, I guess! Here’s the list of things that I care about in the upcoming season. Expect this page to change over the course of the season.
Just to note, this list is way absurdly too long. I wonder what I’m going to end up dropping.
Continued from last season
Wait, what, I actually watched things last season? Well, no, not really. But I went and marathoned a few shows to catch up.
- That show with the giant titan things and people flying around on cables with swords. To be honest, I only started watching this because Crunchyroll gave me a free 1-month subscription. It stuck with me now, I guess.
- RAILGUN S. (It’s like the first Index season, except that they ramped the animation quality and direction up to 11! And also has more Railgun and less Index.)
New this season
- Stella Women’s Academy, High School Division Class C3 – it has Makino Yui, And if I’ve learned anything from past shows like C -Control- or Sora o Kakeru Shoujo or Tsubasa Chronicles, that doesn’t mean very much. But it has at least one character with a voice actress I’m a fan of :)
- NEW GENSHIKEN
- Some more The World God Only Knows, too.
- Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA. There is no way this can not be awesome. It’s as if they’d made a third season of Nanoha. Possibly almost as good as a Tsukihime anime, should they have made one.
Things where I used to be more than a season behind and had to catch up first
- The second season of the “Monogatari” series. I’m kind of surprised how far behind I am on this; I have to watch Nise- and Neko- (Black) to catch up before starting on this. Which is probably a good thing, because knowing SHAFT it’s not going to come out on schedule anyways. (I’m now caught up on the previous shows, but Crunchyroll has this on a delay…)
- There’s new Rozen Maiden, but I haven’t seen any of the previous work. So, yeah. (I’ve now watched the entire first season, and have started this. It’s awesome!)
Things that aren’t actually from this season at all.
- Captain Harlock
- My Little Monster (Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun). Picked it at random, but it’s surprisingly sweet.
Things that I thought I wouldn’t watch, but upon further reflection changed my mind about
- Free (the famed “Swimming Anime”). It’s aimed squarely at the female audience, but KyoAni!
- It’s Not My Fault That I’m Not Popular! (or whatever they end up translating the title as) (They picked “WATAMOTE” with a subtitle)
- Kitakubu Katsudou Kiroku (CrunchyRoll is calling this “Chronicles of the Going Home Club”) – It’s eh, but it fills a night when nothing else is on.
- KINMOZA! – This show is absurdly cute. (btw, Aya.)
probably definitely not watching
- Fantasista Doll – it has surprisingly well-animated plaid skirts. But that’s about it.
