Okay, let’s do this again! The chart was taken from here.
~SPRING 2012 ANIME WATCHLIST~
I bolded the titles of those shows that I’ll most probably make gifs of, if anyone’s interested.
★ Eureka Seven Ao - please please don’t let me down, I’m a huge fan of the prequel after all. It’s directed by the same guy so there’s still some hope. So far I like the chara designs and already expect Rebecka to be my type of a girl.
★ Fate/Zero S2 - well obviously?
★ Hyou-ka - I actually can’t wait to work on this one in photoshop, KyoAni’s animation is so fluid and just perfect for gifs… or so I think. As for the series itself - well, I won’t complain much as long as it’s relaxing.
★ Tsuritama - Nakamura Kenji, end of story.
★ Sakamichi no Apollon - because of /a/’s constant complaints about supposedly ‘one of the worst and most pathetic love triangles ever with MC who spends more time getting NTR’d than he does playing his piano’ I decided to ask my friend (who’s read all the japanese volumes that’s been released so far) about the details… and she basically spoiled the whole thing for me haha. I don’t mind spoilers though and at least I’m not worried anymore~! looks like the original story is indeed more about the romance than music and this part is worrying me slightly, but LET’S BELIEVE in Yoko Kanno and Shinichiro Watanabe. I prolly won’t make gifs of this one though, the bright color palette isn’t really for me (see my Chihayafuru gifs, they’re absolutely horrible).
★ Ozuma - the first episode is already out, right? huh…
★ Uchuu Kyoudai - 48+ eps for a seinen?! hopefully it won’t be too boring.
★ Arashi no Yoru ni - why would they make a tv show… but hey, the movie was nice and touching. in a quite disturbing way at times.
★ Accel World - dammit Sunrise it looks so generic! “Haruyuki has an encounter with Kuroyukihime, the prettiest girl in his school. For the middle school boy who is often bullied, the meeting changes his life.” youdontsay.jpg
★ Natsuiro Kiseki - dammit Sunrise why are you making your own K-ON? I’m kind of interested though, but at the same time I highly doubt this will be a believable depiction of how seiyuu’s work looks like.
★ Shirokuma Cafe - this is………… weirdly………….. tempting…………
★ AKB0048 - because Kawamori.
Nothing is certain yet though, it seems like with age I’m getting worse at judging shows based on promo images (Tiger&Bunny anyone?) and prequels (Aquarion EVOL and Fate/Zero anyone?). What will be the biggest surprise of this season, I wonder.
