Spring 2014 preview thread.

Mekaku City Actors
JoJo
Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei
Date A Live II

Spring will have four extremly big IPs. Three Bones shows, another season of Mushishi, Yama no Susume. Another full CG show with Sidonia no Kishi and Sgt. Frog celebrates his flash comeback.

Spring is big.

We will get also several OAD episodes for various shows. A new Girls und Panzer OVA
And the final volume of Gundam Unicorn.

The Anime Mirai stuff looks also pretty interesting.

And unlike Mahouka the Mekaku fanbase got bigger since the anime announcement.

Oh, I guess the new Keroro series is why Bandai's been claiming my Keroro clips on youtube lately.

Just blocking them from being viewed in Japan, so it's no big deal.
>>
>>101398985
Three? I thought it was only No Game No Life and Mekaku, and Mekaku is hardly about NEETS considering Shintaro is only the character that ties them all together. Hardly an MC.
>>
>>101398984
Idk, I think it'll be decent.

Too bad Knights of Sidonia is full-CG and will get alot of shitposting because of the fact.

The manga is great.

>>101398237

With a title like that, I'll have to watch this show definitely!
>>
>>101399257
There are alot of shows without school setting. I think Mahouka is the only show with such a school setting next season.

I'm pretty hyped for Mekaku City Actors, Mushi-Shi, and Captain Ea-

>bones mecha

Make that cautiously optimistic for Captain Earth.
>>
>>101399310
There's a handful of characters who gets more MVs and coverage in the manga than he does. He's really not the MC.
>>
Aside from JoJo, nothing too interesting.
>>
>>101397999
JoJo and Mekaku are the only things I'm hype for. There are a few things I'll check out though.
>>
Three Bones shows.

That's some crazy shit.
>>
>>101397999
So pretty much just Mushishi with a side of Knights of Sydonia.

Alright, I guess.

Ping Pong is missing.

>>101399569
E7 was shit so I have no idea why you would use that as a counter example

>>101397999
Wow.

This seems shittier even than the current season.

Good that at least /m/ will save the day.

I won't be hyped for Mekaku unless Jin channels the spirits of both Gen Urobuchi and Jun Maeda to assist him creating a new route for the anime.
>>
>>101399666
that is your opinion and I respect that, but eureka 7 held a lot of enjoyment value and really let the viewer connect with most of the characters due to the consistency of their character growth.
It was a great emotional ride.
>>
>>101397999
This season actually looks pretty dire. Maybe some of those new shows will turn out good though, who knows.
>>
>>101398984
It's a funny as hell Gary Stu.

Also, ZENMETSU.

Mekaku City Actors
Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei
Mahou Shoujo Taisen
Hitsugihime no Oika

I just want to watch girls doing cute things, so Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka?
I doubt that more than two of the animes I have picked for this season will surpass the three episode drop rule.

You know what, I don't mind CGI mechs if they're well done. Hell, CGI humans can work, too.

Will watch Jojo, Mushishi, and Puchimas

Never saw sgt frog so I won't watch the sequel.
Other than that nothing really looks appealing.

They stopped being relevant in like 2007. They couldn't make a good show to save their life now.

sucking Shaft's dick doesn't sound fun, but maybe it will be more interesting than the rest of the trash.

this is gonna be comedy of the year, will watch for sure

I am already sold with this name
>Mangaka-san
woo, classical ecchi comedy. Gonna be fun.

really? That's a good manga, will watch 100%

Am I missing anything besides the obvious second seasons? Considering I don't watch sports series... yeah, guess this is it.
>>
>>101400015
It's a LN series, so there aren't many people who know about it here.
>>
>>101400169
>sucking Shaft's dick doesn't sound fun

>>101400015
It's cliched as fuck, with a Gary Stu main character, yet rather enjoyable.

Just, you know, don't expect it to be something more than "fun".

Looking forward to Stardust Crusaders, Mushishi season 2, and SnK IIIIN SPAAAAACE!!!

Also, 2014 is a great year for sports anime. Spring has the debut of Haikyuu, Baby Steps, and Ping Pong. And we have the continuation of Diamond no Ace and Yowamushi Pedal.

Looks like mostly a backlog season for me, especially with most two-cour shows ending this season. That's okay though.

Shit will be awesome. I hope more people will get into ping pong.

>>101402933
It starts at the beginning of volume 5 and finishes at the end of 7. and meh. It was more enjoyable for me I guess cause I hadn't read the novels before. They really skipped quite a bit and changed some stuff and it was really rushed in season 1. Hoping 2 does a better job cause they have less to adapt.

Mahouka doesn't seem to have nearly the amount of hype SAO had, at least outside Japan. Besides, the big draw of SAO was the premise and setting.

Two second seasons that go without saying (JoJo, Mushishi), but I'll let /a/ vet all the new stuff, like I usually do -- not that I expect many to fall into the category of "/a/ never talks about good anime".

I swear to god, neither bones nor madhouse are even trying anymore. Also, it's pretty sad that Black Bullet and Mahouka couldn't exchange studios. BB made by Madhouse could turn into something actually good.

Bones have something with "Chaika" in the title. I think this should be good. The slavaboo jap shows are the best, after all.
