Alright, so I seem to have not upheld my promise of making that third post on Spring season stuff. God, I am an unreliable piece of shit. Anyway, here’s the tentative list of shows I’ll end up watching at least the first episode of, as well as the rest of the stuff. Plus comments. The contents of this will be based on the rather useful post on THAT Anime blog. Many thanks go to them for having to research all that.
The visual novel was awesome, incorporating psychological horror-ish elements, gore, delusions (rofl), and science fiction (can anyone say quantum physics?). Hopefully the anime will be more of the same, though the staff is… somewhat disenheartening.
Hakushaku to Yousei
Watching just because it has Tomokazu Sugita.
Tales of the Abyss
My brother played this, and I ended up watching him when I was bored. Tear is love.
I watched this before, might as well keep going.
I’ve heard praise for the source material – a manga I believe – so I’ll be watching out of curiosity.
“Crazy Shrine Maidens.” Awesome.
I read a bit of the manga (like, 2 chapters) and it wasn’t all that bad.
The manga’s awesome cover got to me, and I am watching this just to see how nice it might turn out.
Clannad ~After Story~
How could anyone not watch this?
Shikabane Hime: Aka
Gainax + Zombies = Awesome
Funny how my train of thought works: figure of Taiga comes out > I like the figure > Anime comes out > I am interested.
To Aru Majutsu no Index
Seems familiar, but not quite.
Nodame Cantabile Paris-hen
Never finished the first season – ought to, but probably won’t.
Kurogane no Linebarrel
Gonzo again? Well, it seems to be their all-out show now, so I ought to do them the honor, at least.
Kinda meh premise, but whatever.
Akane Iro ni Somaru Saka
I remember seeing a bunch of CGs and stuff related to this, so my interest’s been piqued – at least on the story.
ef ~a tale of melodies.~
ef. I seriously need to watch the first season – it’s apparently fucking awesome.
Interesting premise, but kinda old-school-ish.
Kyou no Go no Ni
The humor was unintentionally sexual, and unintentionally funny.
Seems to be action. Plus I love anachronistic characters.
Do not watch
Battle Spirits blahblahblah
not really into space battle stuff
Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae
never saw the first two seasons. never will.
okay, this is just LOL
Vampire Knight Guilty
quit the first season.
Rosario to Vampire CAPU2
more fanservice from Gonzo. except this time it’s not mecha-musume lolis with guns in military uniforms and kemonomimi, so no thanks.
Michiko To Hatchin
eh, not really interesting for me.
not into full-shoujo stuff.
yay for shota.
yeah, uh, skin beauty competitions. seriously.
Hokuto no Ken yaddayaddayadda
YOU’RE ALREADY DEAD.
Tentai Senshi Sunred
parody anime can be parody anime for all I care, but this just looks… awful. still a better choice than most others here though.
Junjou Romantica 2
non-shota version of hot dickings.
Edit: Somehow, I have totally missed the typo on the title for days and days until Yamcha pointed it out. It’s fixed now, though links might get broken.
