Spring 2013 Thoughts


Another season is coming...same as usual. After what happen in the preview for winter season, I decided to take a look at a few previews this time so I don't get Amnesia'd again. Most people have mentioned that summer season seems to be a lot more stacked than spring is and I'm inclined to agree...still, that's a while away, so let's focus on the here and now.

  • Kara the Animation - uhh...not interested. Moving on.
  • Otona Joshi no Anime Time - Not sure what it is...it seems it's already airing. But you lost me at "stories for women".
  • Red Data Girl - preview doesn't really show me anything different from Hanasaku Iroha or Tari Tari. So far, two pre-airs have been released and I'll probably wait for "full versions" if they come to take a look.
  • Girls und Panzer - haven't been watching this, so probably not.
  • Gundam Seed Destiny HD - well, after they remastered Seed, this was bound to happen. shivers Shinn Asuka. That is all.
  • Date A Live - give me a compelling argument and I may watch this...otherwise no.
  • Train Heroes - uhh...what? Moving on.
  • DD Hokuto no Ken - more what? Moving on...
  • No...no My Little Pony...just no.
  • Kuro Majo, Gakkatsu, and Danbouru Senki Wars are second seasons of shows I didn't watch, so pass.
  • Karneval - This definitely looks like a bad idea. It's like K all over again.
  • Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - what the heck is this premise? I don't even understand. Should I succumb to my curiosity or avoid this? I really don't know.
  • Photo Kano - looks like pretty standard romance to me. I'll check out the first episode and see what's up.
  • Hataraku Maou-sama  - meh...random comedy. Not too interested.
  • Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru - have I seen this anime before? I swear it sounds familiar...
  • Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince - wait...this isn't a Gundam show? It sounds just like it. But will likely watch...because yeah.
  • Devil Survivor 2 - played the first Devil Survivor and liked it...also the same franchise as Persona. It's time for genocide!
  • Aku no Hana - This sounds pretty dark...it would be a shame not to give it a try...right?
  • Hyakka Ryouran and Jewelpet Happiness - more sequels whose originals I haven't watched...yay! I can dodge!
  • Namiuchigiwa no Muromi-san - hmm...mermaids...uhh...what's the harm? Wait...maybe that's just what they want me to think.
  • Tetsujin 28-gou Gao, Pretty Rhythm Rainbow Live, Tanken Driland, and Robocar Poli can all be avoided.
  • Oreimo 2 - finally a sequel that I'm actually caught up on...will watch, but may choose not to cover depending on schedule
  • Danchi Tomoo, Yondemasu yo, Zettai Bouei Leviathan, Boku wa Ousama - pass.
  • Shingeki no Kyojin - I've heard good things about this so far...but I'm curious. Is the entire show supposed to be a single siege by the giants or will it be like each episode is a new giant?
  • Ketsuekigata-kun - pass. What is this premise anyway?
  • Nyaruko-san 2 - ...why? Just why?
  • Glass no Kamen Desu ga - what is this?
  • Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2199 - do I have to watch the original to watch this? Because if not, it might be worthwhile...
  • Battle Spirits and Dibetagurashi - just no...
  • Arata Kangatari - I have a bad feeling about this show...
  • Hayate no Gotoku and Chibi Devi - pass
  • Mushibugyou - I'm getting bad Brave 10 vibes
  • Yuyushiki - cute girls doing cute things?
  • Aiura - see previous line
  • Kakumeiki Valvrave - ...we're doing it!
  • Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S - you know...sooner or later I'll finish this series
  • Hentai Ouji - RUN AWAY
  • Uta no Prince-sama - more sequels! that I haven't seen...
  • Suisei no Gargantia - yeah...why not, Urobuchi? Why not?
  • Katanagatari rerun - saw the original...so yeah
  • Haitai Nanafa - why did this get a second season again?
  • Sparrow's Hotel - is this supposed to be a short-episode series?
  • Asian Risshiden no Shima Kousaku - corporate Japan? Sounds like a gold mine of information there...

So let's see what we've got so far. If you've managed to scroll down this far, that is. Looks like for shows to be covered: Devil Survivor 2, Shingeki no Kyojin, Kakumeiki Valvrave, and Suisei no Gargantia. In the "maybe" column, we have Red Data Girl, Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge, Majestic Prince, Aku no Hana, and Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2199. Most of the rest will probably be tried, but no guarantees. MAKE ME AN OFFER!

    It's like I'm reading my own thoughts. I'm most excited for Devil Survivor and Shingeki no Kyojin even though I know next to nothing about Shingeki no Kyojin... I hope I'm not getting my hopes up to high.

    I've read the Aku no Hana manga and dark is an understatement, it's very confronting at times but it's highly entertaining so you should find it at least interesting.

    I also read the start of Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge and it was very confusing so i'm not sure that's going to turn out very good.

    As for Red Data girl and things like Yuyushiki and Aiura it's hard to judge those without watching at least one episode first.

    Is it just me or is more and more crap making it's way onto these charts? I mean even reruns are getting on there. I thought there was going to be a new Katanagarari season for just a brief moment and then my dreams were shattered spectacularly with the word rerun.

    Is there any OVA's or movies you are looking forward to? There sure is a lot this time.

    Yeah...I'm thinking about the same for Shingeki no Kyojin.

    Sounds good :D

    It's such an odd type of show...I really don't know what to make of it.

    Those seem like pretty standard stuff to me.

    Yeah...it seems a lot longer than usual. Like the crossovers and the reruns for sure.

    I wouldn't say I'm looking forward to any OVAs specifically...I guess I just watch the OVAs for the shows I've seen. As for movies, they always come out a lot later than they are aired, so I don't really pay all that much attention.

    TLDR: What's worth watching?

    Only thing I may watch is Red Data Girl, Aku no Hana, Devil (if i watch season 1) and maybe Shingeki no Kyojin. Tbh after getting Psycho-pass Robotic Notes, Shinsekai, and Zetsuen this season seems meh. God summer and the next of the Monogataris and Geass part 2 (with 100% more CC, god Im dying for this) cant come soon enough.

    Psycho-pass was phenomenally good. Shinsekai was decent but could have been better (lazy ass time skips) Zetsuen and Notes were both enjoyables and had plot twists galore.

    Compared to those this season is seems really bad. I feel like im basically playing the lottery and praying I find a diamond in this seemingly pile of trash. Kinda disappointed by what Madhouse put out as well.

    If by season 1 of Devil, you mean Devil Survivor, then there is no season 1. Devil Survivor 2 is a sequel to a video game and the two stories aren't related. As for my own plans, they're at the bottom. And yeah...summer season seems pretty stacked.

    I like to give every season its chance.

    I do too, but Summer and Fall are just always so stacked. Winter occasionally gives you a gem (not this year), and Spring is usually much better than this.

    If they arent related, I guess I'll watch it then.

    I know we get Monogatari back and Code Geass's second movie but anything else notable for the summer?

    you should review my little pony marth.why you might ask?just because it would be funny and a sight to behold you reviewing my little pony.though seriously speaking i wonder why does that even appear here...if they got time to make this they should make something else a better one...

    not much that is interesting but shingeki no kyojin clearly got my attention along side other such as devil survivor and to aru kagaku no railgun and of course katanagatari and maybe dansai bunri date a live! and rdg that is pretty much the only important one.the rest is just slice of life,romance,mecha,and ridiculous show,but i guess some of them are quite good the slice of life and romance i mean.better than nothing i guess so might pick up few of them...though slice of life/romance and me generally don't get along...

    and of course how could i forget such classic such as robocar poli and train heroes!

    b-but what about friendship and magic? good thing this is typing since i probably couldn't say that without laughing... though what about robocar poli and train heroes?clearly you are not going to turn down such masterpiece?

    though from the list i can pretty much predict which one you would cover...though are you going to give all of them a shot or just a few of them?because trying it all would mean you need to watch some "less than terrible"show...

    well, I wouldn't say I'm trying them all because I'll obvious skip most second seasons and probably won't watch some of the childish ones. That's why I said I was trying most of them
