I'm rather looking forward to this season. Got more shows I want to watch than past ones.
Tower of Druaga will be awesome
I'm going to be all over Chii's sweet home.
That's what you said last time.
From the pics alone, there appear to be 4 or 5 shows I'll watch. I'll have to dig up some summaries for these later. Is this the complete list?
Geass S2 and Chi's Sweet Home will be alright. That aside, it'll be a good season for catching up on hit shows of yesteryear, I guess.
-oh wait I see it.
Fuck you, this season is the first time in a long time that I actually want to watch more than 3 animu series.
If you're looking for something to watch, look no further than THE LIST
Pictured: THE LIST
Looking good but no wolf animu?
Chii's sweet home and that catgirl animu Kyouran Kazoku Nikki
Will Summer ever come?
Tower of Druaga will be lol GONZO
First row third down..Is that some yaoi anime?
I agree with you
Code Geass, xxxHOLiC, Special A, Junjo Romantica, Kaiba, and Chi's Sweet Home, probably.
I've heard Kaiba is supposed to be extremely win~ anyone dig up anything on this?
KAIBA will define anime as we know it.
So many shows and I'll bet all of 5 get subs
ITT: Daytime naruto-loving faggots don`t know who Masaaki Yuasa. These faggots are most likely going to be watching Code Geass and nothing else.
You all disgust me.
"Dig up anything?" It's fucking Masaaki Yuasa.
I'm only watching KAIBA, Chii's Sweet Home and Macross F.
I'm watching everything pictured. I have to burn some DVDs and clean out my hard drive.
??? is Hammerin' Harry. Not that someone care, but holy shit, I love that game.
It's not just because it is by Maasaki Yuasa. The visual design looks lovely. Like sweet, tender sex.
I'll watch (the first and second episode at least) everything subbed.
I'm watching everything on THE LIST. That includes Golgo 13, which I'm sure is just going to be alright, and Real Drive, which looks like shit. I still have hope, though.
Code Geass R2: For the Lulz
I'll try out the first few episodes of each show before I judge it.
Enjoy your anime for girls... oops, they don't watch anime.
Wtf is DaCapoII s2? i thought that shit ended.
All I'm looking forward to is Gyoga Manga Biyori S3. Though the second season is still not being subbed.
I predict nobody will sub Golgo, and everybody will jump on the moeshit.
And afk will finally close down, leaving ZSZS in another three month rut.
I for one welcome the lack of good anime these past seasons. It's been allowing me to cut back and focus on marathoning good unwatched ones or actually applying my time to something useful.
>I will wait `til /a/ forms an opinion, because I don`t have tastes of my own
And nothing of value would be lost.
WHAT IS THE SPRING SEASON?
A MISERABLE PILE OF FAIL.
Will definitely watch Kaiba and Chi.
Macross F, but will drop if it starts sucking. Golgo 13 will be win if they don't fuck up.
Gyagu Manga S3. Needs season 2 subs first. OTL
Will try the first ep of a couple of other things.
Hmmm, Crystal Blaze has a picture of what appears to be a S&W Model 29 and a glass of liquor.
im an elitist fag so i'll watch only one anime from op's list and claim that everything else is shit.
can't wait till winter when I'll finally get FMP 4. RIGHT, KYOANI ?!
LOL no, its Tomoyo After time.
Ive seen you around, actually. You arent elitist. You have extremely shitty taste.
I know very well you wont be watching whats good. You will buy into the same dogshit that the rest of /a/ is watching.
You have Clannad After, Haruhi 2 and there's plan for a Little Busters anime.
That X was a little uncalled for don't you think?
I hate anime, but I'm going to watch Code Gayass R2.
I'm gonna take a wild guess and say that before every season there has been a thread on /a/, with an image of all the anime to come and the word "FAIL" in the text.
Kaiba, Soul Eater, Golgo 13, the IG shows and Chii's home should be good.
>I hate anime
. . .
Someone said that Real Drive will be underwater PlanetES.
MACROSS FRONTIER FUCK YEAH
If they do another Key adaption before FMP they are the greatest trolls ever.
Red- Definately watching
Orange- Somewhat interested, will check out
Green- Don't know if want...
Blue- Satisfied enough with the mango
Purple- Most likely not watching...
Black- FUCK NO
White- LOL whut?
I will be watching everything Cirno watches as I have disturbingly discovered that he has better taste than most people on /a/.
+Junjo Romantica, fuck yes
gayass, xxx, macross
i'll watch most of them. if they get subs, that is...
what is crystal blaze?
I can't even begin to describe how ridiculously excited I am for Kaiba.
This will be /a/'s typical list of things they're watching.
How the fuck do you make a Tower of Druaga anime?
Oh cirno, stop posting without your tag.
I don't really care about the genre, studio, director or anything like that, I will watch 2 episodes of each shows and keep those that entertain me, that's all.
I'm probably the only person looking forward to soul eater
I've watched the Kaiba trailer over a hundred times now.
Kaiba, Kanokon, Code Geass 2, Macross, Tower of druaga. Rest looks okayish.
Make it a typical fantasy animu?
Hey, we're on the same wavelength Anon.
Of course I already had planned to watch what he was watching.
Because it's shit.
Lol, moar pain for Kyoufags?
Soul Eater looks promising, they can't screw it over as badly as R+V on account of it being based on a gag/ecchi manga atleast
can only hope it's an awesome gunslinger show or something and not shit
People like you are why things like Goshuusho-sama Ninomiya-kun, and Nanoha keeps getting made.
OH ITS JUST MINDLESS ENTERTAINMENT THATS OKAY!
No. No its not okay.
Typical /a/sshole, as expected.
Yes it is, it's just a hobby. Fuck you with your ANIME IS SERIOUS BUSINESS bullshit.
I will not watch any of the animes from OP's list but when threads discussing them pop up, I'll join in and act like I've seen every one and shoot down everyone else's opinion like an elitist faggot on steroids.
Nope. I'm looking forward to it as well. BONES as well.
Of course, it could easily fail, especially if it doesn't capture the art style, switches the plot or devolves into fanservice or filler.
You're not obligated to watch them, you know.
Every single one looks like shit.
Every, fucking, one.
Oh come on. Don't you want to see how they play card games on motorbikes. Also this maybe the seris to redeem the Yu-Gi-Oh anime. If not we will never speak of this again.
If people want to watch fanservice anime, why can't they just watch porn and allow Studios to be more creative and risk-taking rather than sticking to the shitty COCKTEASE LAWL market and garnering 20 different fansubbers.
Aw, come on. Kanokon looks like it may be fap worthy.
I fucking hate gx and any spin-off shit realated to it.
>Every single one looks like shit.
You're brain looks like shit.
Your lack of taste is not a problem of /a/s. So please dont bring it up.
Same here. Anyone knows when the 1st episode will be released ?
ICE FUCKING COLD
It's a brand new seris no GX will be in 5D's. I guess when that made they didn't have any promotinal pics. Here's one.
ITT WE'RE ALL MASTER UP AGAINST OURSELVES.
What the fuck, you faggot? Yes it is okay.
Who's talking about fanservice anime, faggot? Most people who watch anime just want to be entertained, that's all. I don't fucking care if you can't accept this simple fact.
Blassreiter is going to be something I'll watch.
I'm setting myself up for disappointment though, and you'll know why if you look it up.
At least I'll get to listen to some delicious Shizuka Itou.
FUCK YES 2 MORE WOLF SERIES
KANOKON AND WAGAYA NO OINARI SENSEI
The only gay in Nabari no Ou is two guys that don't show up as often.
Other that, it's pretty straight and Rie Kugimya is the CV for Miharu, who is sorta a male tsundere.
No it's not really okay. That kind of anime is poisoning the medium. Without having to cater to the lowest common denominator, the quality of shows would increase significantly. Nothing I or anyone else can do about it, but it certainly is not okay.
what was the last gayest season?
I think I'll be following Cirno's list. Also Chii's Sweet Home, CG2, Gyagu Manga Biyori (woot), Soul Eater (because it's Bones), and Masked Maid Guy (because the name is lol).
Gyagu Manga! I mean, wow!
OH FUCK ITS A FOX
IT'S AN ENDLESS VICIOUS CIRCLE OF TROLL
Unfortunately, anime is first and foremost a business. Can't make artsy animu without the dough.
>Giant Wolf of Darkness
This season is so varied that, no matter what your taste is, there's at least one show that you'll like. If not, then you might as well just quit anime.
Well at the very least, I'm glad they keep throwing money at Yuasa and Imaishi.
It has always been that way, don't delude yourself. Anime has been more "otaku oriented" in the last 10 years but it has always been 90% of brainless entertainment and 10% of well produced shows. So what if most anime caters to a "lowest common denominator", if it entertain them then it's doing a good enough job.
I am not hyped for any animu on the list this time,which is probably a good thing.
The last one i really looked forward to was Persona and,well...
I never said anything about it being different before. Don't put words in my mouth.
>Yuasa and Imaishi.
who the fuck are they and why do i care?
I need my rage pic but I lost it...
O-I'll check it out if it's subbed.
Get out troll
I'm totally going to watch Kaiba.
It has Mamiko. I LOVE MAMIKO.
I suspect that anyone saying "THIS SEASON IS FAIL" is doing so simply because they have been conditioned to and haven't actually researched any of these shows.
I've a total of 9 shows I definitely will be watching: Golgo 13, Allison & Lillia, Kaiba, Real Drive, Crystal Blaze, Himitsu Top Secret, Toshokan Sensou, Nijuu Mensou no Musume and Special A (the last 2 will probably suck but I'll watch a few and see).
And the weirdest anime this season besides Kamen no Maid Guy has to be Bus Gamer. It's about 2 companies setting up a fight over a data disk. Sorta like Kaiji/Akagi only not nearly as awesome. In fact it sounds incredibly boring but it's only 3 episodes so...
GAG MANGA YEAH
If you like Ouran, most likely you would like Special A.
Bracing that it would be called a Ouran clone though it came out before Ouran in mango form, and both are obviously inspired by Hana Yori Dango.
Troll? Not quite, judging from the recent bleach and naruto threads, I'd say this guy is serious.
Can I just add that not only is it starring her but also Houko Kuawashima (Kagura; Isako from Denno Coil). I love her voice. It's easily recognizable because she has just a little bit of a lisp.
HOLY SHIT, GOLGO 13!
I want to see Golgo 13, but the subs...
Who's subbing it?
Thats the thing
That's good, watched 5 episodes of Ouran and was pretty entertained by it. The thing that makes me want to watch Special A is because it has a wrestling girl in it. Unfortunately, though, it's also a Gonzo.
fuck you. wikipedia doesnt even list anything for either of these faggots. who are they?
FUCK YEAH GOLGO 13
What the hell is Kaiba?
You do this every time. I refuse to add that to my list! Must.. not... that cat is kinda cute.
Motherfucking KAIBA: >>10128844
Yes, Hikari is awesome. But I bet anons will like Akira the best. Delicious tomboy is delicious.
GOD DAMMIT! You're so shameless, Japan. First you try to cater to Otaku fetishes with moe and fanservice and now you've even gone so far as to use CATS.
fuck yeah! maid guy!
If this isn't subbed I'll have to watch it raw and that will suck. I hope Noto's presence will draw inerest from groups who wouldn't normally care about Yuasa.
They do have cat porn, after all.
And I'm not kidding.
Was Flag ever subbed? It's the only other thing besides transformers that the studio doing golgo has made.
Too much info.
Where's my Gin to Kin animu?
Actually, Special A is Gonzo and AIC.
The same duo that brought us Seto no Hanayome.
>If this isn't subbed
I'll be honest, Kaiba's style (nor mindgame's and kemonozume's) does not appeal to me. Unless it comes with a semi-understandable plot, hyper surrealism doesnt quite do it for me.
Code Geass for the fuck of it, Toshokan Sensou looks maybe good, Soul Eater might be entertaining
don't care much for anything else
better than last season since I didn't watch anything at all
Mindgame and Kemonozume were both 100% understandable.
The only thing that was confusing was the end to Mindgame.
All of Kemonozume was eventually subbed, even though it took a while.
Hopefully Yuasa's name is recognised by subbers.
But seeing what shows this season have the most sub groups, I doubt there will be much attention brought to Kaiba...
>oykosneG fo suomynonA ,onriC
the premise behind both were just unbelievable, to the point where surrealism took over, and thats really all I care to argue for my tastes.
If I wanted that kind of thing with understandable motives and messages being conveyed, I'd just read some Kafka.
BOY GETS AN INTER DIMENSIONAL CHANNEL IN HIS HEAD,
ROBOTS WITH FACES THAT WORK WITH WILL-POWER
Why won't anybody sub that show? It's excellent.
Only spring season show I plan on watching is Golgo 13. Assuming someone subs it...
I'll start everythnig but this is what I have hopes for.
why are people excited for chi's sweet home?
The picture reminds me of THAT SNOWMAN
Because it's cute as fuck without haveing down syndrom moeblob characters.
What I'll watch for sure:
What I'll give a chance, even with weak hopes for them:
AND WHERE MIGHT CHI'S SWEET HOME BE?
What's the staff? I don't really care about good source material, it's all about who is doing the adaptation.
am I the only one who wants to watch Telepathy Shoujo Ran? It looks like a cute supernatural kids show. It's not starting until July though...
Apparently a ton of serious people are doing it. That's why I am watching it.
No idea, actually. I'm hoping they keep the same artstyle, because I haven't seen anything on it.
From some blog
> At first, this may seem like an ordinary kiddie-show, but take a look at the people who’ll be animating it. The director was the episode director of Death Note, Gungrave, Beck and Paradise Kiss, and to make matters even weirder, he was the assistant director on Tokyo Tribe 2 and Shigurui. What the heck is such a manly director doing with a series that revolves around a lost kitten? This is just making me really curious to see whether he’ll combine the gore of Shigurui with the cuteness of this concept.
The director was an episode director of Death Note, Gungrave, Beck and Paradise Kiss, and to make matters even weirder, he was the assistant director on Tokyo Tribe 2 and Shigurui.
Haha. Oh god, imagine the look on /a/'s (read: Cirno's) face if the cat dies a horrible death.
...I don't think you know how this industry works.
Anyway, didn't know it was by MadHouse.
It's true. Strange.
Mitsuyuki Masuhara. Seems like this is his Directing debut.
Chi gets run over by a car. You get to see all the brains, the intestines, the eyes popping out, all of it.
I don't think you guys know how series direction works.
Fuck, i'll watch it.
I know very well, which is why I said this was his directing debut.
I don't think you know how anything works
It looks like a good season, really. Like someone else said, a wide variety of stuff, plus a good helping of sci-fi, non-moeblob cuteness, shounen/action by good studios, odd stuff.
Hurray, Gag Manga! Butt Imoko and Prince Shoutoku on more wacky adventures! The return of detective Usami-chan! Oh lawdy...
/a/ gets fooled by "experts" staff talk... again. For one, he director for Chi's Sweet Home also directed those Clamp anniversary music videos and episodes of Chobits. And second: series direction does not work that way.
Want a lesson?
You mean... more shitty CGI asteroids? DO NOT WANT
Macross Frontier looks pretty awesome if they can have combat like they did in episode one. CGR2 might be okay, at least that's what I hope for. Rest looks like pretty much crap though.
Code Geass is okay, but Kaiba looks like crap?
If you're the guy who kept remarking on Ghost Hound's ZOMG THE CREATURE DESIGNS, then no, since you don't seem to be that smart.
Let's analyze the actual deal with Chi's Sweet Home staff:
増原: In-house MadHouse director. His work was usually as assistant or operator, not truly a creative part of production in anything other than ParaKiss(which he storyboarded) and Beck(which he also storyboarded). His actual style is pretty subdued, not violent at all. Is good friends with Osamu Kobayashi.
I haven't said anything about Ghost Hound since I left /a/ for my self-discovery journey a month ago.
Holy shit, Chii's home analysation go.
>Is good friends with Osamu Kobayashi.
This could mean there's a good chance of them keeping a paper grain style for Chi. But what specifically do you mean by "subdued?"
Mai husbando. No really, I loved Beck and Paradise Kiss.
I thought you were just learning to write better.
He was given complete freedom with Abenobashi 8, which was extremely caroony. The episode was similar to Osamu Kobayashi's laid-back approach, but with more traditional shots and framing.
She spent weeks in the wilderness bonding with nature. Naked.
Reading classics of literature not only helps your grammar.
Chi's Sweet Home writer is 金春, a female for once.
Her work is usually in romantic comedies or shoujos, being composer for Nadja, Kodocha, Nana or Hello Kittie's movies.
I just hate when people expect LOL VIOLENCE due to some side-projects of the director.
Masked Maid Guy promo:
Looks like it'll be entertaining for the first few episodes, at least.
It was a joke. Nobody actually expects violence in a show about a boy and his cute cat.
I guess a month does not make you smarter than any 13 year old who wants to score above 600 on the SAT writing section...
Crystal Blaze is the only show I have hope for.
Gun - Check.
Booze - Check.
Only thing missing to make this show an epic win before it even airs in half-naked women in cute dresses. I still have hope.
Fuck yes, you are the cutest anime ever.
Finally Japan can produce something genuinely cute, without it having pedo undertones.
you're so naive
Especialmente porque la mayor parte de los libros que tuve la oportunidad de leer estaban en Español.
De hecho, en Inglés apenas y leí a Joyce. Realmente no entiendo porque recibe tanto odio atraes de la red…
It's called Revolver and Scotch and these are the character designs.
>>: In a town where many people of different races live in, it offers a glimpse into the future. People in this world seems to be experiencing a new age of freedom and equality. However, this is only a facade, as this prosperity and happiness is just false. “S&A Detective Agency” is a gun blazing, mystery solving group living in such a world. Its members are Shu, who stands against the powers that be through pulse-pounding incidents but he is considered a deviant. Akira is a complicated but beautiful young man. The remaining two members high school girls Manami and Ayaka, mere apprentices. Unhappy with the current status quo, Shu lives day-to-day as a detective, when he meets the amnesiac heroine Sara. Investigating an incident which rocks Lags Town, he journeys to find new friends and exorcize his past.
It has the potential to be epicly corny (and I man that in a good way). It also has Chiba Saeko in it which is always a good thing.
Fuck yes Kaiba, Masaaki Yuasa is a genius.
He needs more exposure, i NEED a Kemonozume box with english subs.
Picture related fuck yeah.
high-school girls? goddamn it.
how about some mid-twenties girls in tight jeans or revealing dresses ffs? even a delicious milf.
and you still messed up your Spanish. read some Pedro Páramo then come back and tell me you know Spanish.
'Chi's Sweet Home'? I liked it better when it was called 'What's Michael'?
One out of forty is still a lot worse than Sturgeon's Law.
And Golgo 13 on that list seems like someone looked at the schedule and said "Oh shit! It's all crap! Let's dig out something old that we already know will be a hit! Oh, and we need some fantasy too. Is there an RPG that hasn't been animated yet? Nothing but some old dungeon crawl video game? Fine, animate it!"
Anime doesn't follow that law. It follows Tuffdawg's Law.
¿De que demonios estas hablando? ¿Lee Pedro Paramo? Realmente me insulta que creas que no he leido Pedro Paramo siendo Mexicana.
>>10129285 FUCK YES 2 MORE WOLF SERIES
>>10129285 KANOKON AND WAGAYA NO OINARI SENSEI
Then what is the most notable element of the story?
BIG WOOP MISPELLING
Learn how to delete your own fail then.
This threads are fucking pointless.
i still dont know who yuasa and imashi are.
these names arent on fucking wikipedia, so why does everyone circlejerk over them?
MASKED MAID GUY! I BELIEVE WE HAVE GAR DETECTED!!!
¿La superposición del pasado y el presente? ¿El amor de Pedro Paramo por Susana San Juan? ¿Los hermanos en la relación casi-incestuosa?
Dont be put off by the terrible Romanization of names in this thread.
Watch Masaaki Yuasa's debut feature "Mind Game". You're life will never be the same.
It will be funny to see Cirno's crying when Chi flops like Neuro.
lol gurren FAGann i stopped reading right there
i havent seen aything the other guy did. artfag shit.
Don't you dare.
Yes, the lack of chronological structure and traditional storytelling is what makes the book notable. You pass.
Espera un segundo... ya no estoy segura de si eran hermanos los que hospedaron a Juan Preciado por primera vez.
You don't know what you're talking about.
I think Golgo 13 is a pretty cool guy. eh is the greatest assassin in the world and doesn't afraid of anything.
Callate. You're not impressing anyone by speaking to yourself about completely unrelated shit in Spanish.
Y también el espíritu Mexicano que recorre la obra de principio a fin.
Lo que sea, es que fue hace mucho que leí el libro. Fue para un ensayo en la preparatoria. El incesto es un tema recurrente en la literatura latinoamericana.
I'm not Mexican, that effect is unfortunately lost on my reading.
I suppose, but I’m sure reading the book indeed gives you a worthwhile insight on Mexican culture.
Hola a ti también, cariño.
For me, the wilderness and the town's contrasting in the past and future does indeed give a good perspective on Mexican culture.
Tengo gusto boletin de la imagen
Yes. My foreign language skills are unmatched!
maybe you already found it,
btw, the last one (the ??? one) is named
Yo hablo la language de taco people desu!
>>And the weirdest anime this season besides Kamen no Maid Guy has to be Bus Gamer.
the mango fukken rocked, I am definitly going to watch that.
isn't there like a bunch of production ig shows this season? One sci-fi one looks especially prmosing
I'm gonna watch the gay ones then viral marketing them until you all watch them to. Bwah haha.
It's unusual that no one complained or praised Trouble (in text that is).
That'd be Real Drive. It's getting a lot of hype, as it should, because the original creator is Shirow Masamune.
Production I.G. is also doing Toshokan Sensou.
Madhouse is doing the most this season: Allison & Lillia, Maid Guy, Kaiba and Himitsu Top Secret.
I HATE ALL OF YOU PROSTITUTOS
