Latest Spring 2014 anime chart. There will be 50 shows airing in this season if you count the 2 carryovers from Winter 2014.
>the 2 carryovers from Winter 2014.
aww yeah ninja turtles
Space Dandy and some other show.
A show about doorbells?
What's 'some other show'?
Nobunaga the Fool.
>There will be 50 shows airing in this season
That's too many
Is that a hitsugime no chaika anime I spy?
The ones I recognize I'm not watching, and the ones I don't recognize don't look all that interesting.
sup mushi-shi season 2
also jesus christ this sounds amazingly terrible:
Kenzen Robo Daimidaler
Kōichi Madanbashi is a high schooler who possesses Hi-ERo particles, which are used as an energy source for the robot Daimidaler. He obtains these particles by groping females, and uses them to power up the robot in order to fight penguin-shaped robots from the evil Penguin Empire.
Hype as fuck, I hope SHAFT doesn't disappoint.
That's exactly why I'm watching it.
>Robot has a gigantic fap arm and tiny as shit normal arm
Gonna pick up
No Game No Life
Date a Live II
Akuma no Riddle
Hitsugi no Chaika
Selector Infected WIXOSS
What are you watching /a/?
Sounds worth a look-into anyway.
Oh and Mekkaku City, although I'm not going to expect too much out of it.
>by the DXD author
Thankfully there's a load of other mecha shows next season.
Ping-Pong, Stardust Crusaders, and Mushishi for sure. I'll wait to see /a/'s reaction to anything else before I pick it up.
This is all subject to change as the season gets closer, of course.
oh fuck i didn't even notice atelier. i hope it's handled well.
how do you pronounce Puchim@s
Mahouka for delicious butthurt
OregaFlag so I can hope they go for the mystery portion over the harem
DAL2 Electric Boogaloo
Knights of Sidonia to complain about CG, Harem and how Nihei has to dumb his works down for his audience
It's a cross promotion, he didn't write it.
pu chi ma s(u)
So many shows, It feels like they're making more than last year.
Akuma no Riddle.
Bokura wa Minna
Hitsugi no Chaika
Looking forward to the most
Poo chi masu.
Too bad Atelier is just an OVA, but maybe that's actually a good thing. I also wish the Arland series got adapted instead.
Atelier Esty And Logy
I want to see more but I'm not to familiar with most of the ones posted.
so the @ is just an a
i could have guessed that but i needed to know
i can guarantee people will be calling it puchiMATsu
You must be a really funny person irl.
Thanks, I'm the real life of the party actually.
>Too bad Atelier is just an OVA
Really? Well that's definitely for the best.
Hyped for fairy Tail
>Too bad Atelier is just an OVA
It's a TV anime.
Why are there so many shows that i want to watch and diss-cuss with /a/ that i can't even get stuff done.
I just want to draw
I don't speak Chinese
Where's the English version?
I hope more shows would be announced include this one, but it's confirmedfall season
Are you retarded that sounds like AOTY.
Isshukan Friends confirmed for Spring? Jesus fuck Brain's Base what are you doing, 3 shows in one season.
This concept is brilliant, probably one of the best ones I've seen in a while.
Splashing all the Natsume cash in time for s5/s6.
i can't even believe it got greenlit but i will probably watch it anyway
whoops didnt meant to reply to you, meant to reply to
I hope all the money gets split between BokuMinna and Isshukan Friends. Fuck that third one, it looks like a harem.
Jojo and Haikyuu are the only anime worth watching. The rest are shit.
Newfag here, now that I think about it, who make those seasonly charts?
They are pretty neat and lot of useful and must require some deep efforts
Wait really? Hype.
>not reading re grorious nihongo
re preb scum, judging by your unwirringness to conform with the other posters and pretend that you can read japanese, i can crearry determine that you rike carradooti, dubs, and shonen. maybe when you watch enough rori magicar moe high schoor SOR with subs onry, you can come back to /a/. but untir you are sufficientry assimirated you are banished to the praces that spawned you xDDDddddDDddd
How does it feel being wrong?
I feel fantastic.
this made me laugh more than it should have
Please, Japan, I've been having trouble keeping up with everything these last two seasons. I don't think I can take much more.
What, are you really going to watch TMNT?
And you aren't?
>no KyoAni show
Spring fucking sucks.
>no KyoAni show
>no KyoAni shitposting for a whole season
Well, Spring is a tad early for swimming and all.
>no KyoAni show
Good. Spring is automatically best season of 2014
You'll get all the KyoAnus shitposting of sping and more in summer when Free S2 airs.
GOAT sports manga in print right now
Stardust Crusaders is going to be crazy.
only gonna watch stardust crusaders because hype and mushishi because comfy
Are you really NOT going to watch TMNT?
Where all this talk about new Mai HiME project /a/nons talking about
>Where all this talk about new Mai HiME project /a/nons talking about
it's more of a wish considering Mai Hime will be hitting its 10th year anniversary
Already got 27 fucking shows this season. I don't even remember that last time I had this many. Certainly don't want more seasons of watching 20+ different series.
50 shows? I guess I'm watching 30 again.
I don't even know what most of these are. I know I'm watching whatever is season 2 and flags.
It actually looks like a shit season compared to this one.
I want that theme park anime already.
Maybe Kagerou Project anime won't be too bad, tho by the description it it just sounds like modern naruto.
>Soul Eater Not!
Its more like Gen Urobuchi wrote a generic shounen filled with tsundere snake waifus.
Either way, muh Shaft is going to make it look glorious.
>tho by the description it it just sounds like modern naruto.
I missed the part in the description about ninjas and hokages.
I thought Nisekoi was 2 cour. I FEELS like it can be since they're taking their time with it.
I thought it wasn't, then someone told me it was, but I really don't think it is.
Mushishi season 2
>Mangaka-san to assistant-san
I don't need anything else
More like you aren't interested in anything else, /v/.
English chart when? I want my plot descriptions.
/v/ is not one person shitposter-kun
There's all sorts of places online to get these charts, anon.
You say that, but >Nisekoi
Also KagePro started off in the same way that Black Rock Shooter did when someone was like made songs based on some story they wrote in their basement. only instead of just 1 song they wrote like 14.
could that wish be true
Even Speedwagon is afraid.
All right, excuse me: updated English chart when?
That's missing 8 shows.
That's all for me
Denpa and Nisekoi both DO look good though, not animated how. However, Shaft knows Mekaku might even give them sales higher than Bake, so they might actually put effort into it.
>caring about the 8 unimportant shows its missing
Is it just me or is everyone getting excited for spring WAY earlier than previous years? I remember seeing a spring hype thread way before winter even started. It's shaping up to be a great season.
Same thing happened for winter too.
>Second season of mushishi
That's true at the very least. SHAFT can produce some pretty-looking animation, but it's really all on the source material to carry it through for them.
I will give it a shot when the time comes.
>Girls und Panzer Anzio OVA
It has been way too long since I've seen some GuP, can't wait.
Honestly that alone would satisfy me, but that aside the season looks really good as well, at least 5 shows I know I'll finish with some degree of certainty (considering I can usually only pick one or two like that in other seasons).
Looks like I have to marathon first seasons of GJ-BU, Date-A-Live, and Love Live in order to truly enjoy spring season. Will it be worth it?
Hitsugi no Chaiki looks like it has some potential
So hyped for fairytail
Just remember that Origami is the best Date a Live and you'll be fine.
Not really, and the GJ-bu show in Spring is just an OVA. You should marathon Mushishi and Jojo instead.
Mekaku City Actors is going to be an original story based within the framework of Kagerou Project, written by the composer/author of the original songs/manga/light novels. They are, for the most part, pretty good. The light novels are easily the best of the big (LN) three.
Yes, if you like idols.
>Date A Live
Mileage may vary.
God damn yes, Why have you not seen them already?
DAL is by no means amazing but still enjoyable.
>Looking Forward to
>3 Episode Rule
Not too much to look forward to this season.
Why not pick up more?
>Yes, if you like idols.
>>Date A Live
>Mileage may vary.
>You should marathon Mushishi and Jojo instead.
Gj-bu 2 fuck yeah
Looks like more fujo shit
Enjoy turning gay
Definitely trying out first episodes of Jojo, Mushishi, Isshukan Friends, Chaika, SnK, Mangaka-san and Ping Pong. Ping Pong confirmed AOTS.
no bully Lelouch
Haikyuu is gonna be about bros and friendship like Diamond no Ace, r-right?
I got so sick of having to make a huge list every time these threads pop up that I just started watching everything.
I thought this season was bad enough with 40 shows, jesus christ Japan. Has shit like SAO and SnK triggered another mid-2000's style anime boom, or is this just a fluke?
Oh. Well I'll still give it a shot. I can just hope they don't use that atrocious vocaloid in the OP/ED or insert songs.
Meanwhile, JaJa's Kooky Quest will be my main hype for this season.
Looks like a shit season to be honest.
Never really cared for sports anime and a lot of the synopses are kinda boring.
Looks bad, but probably because I can't understand shit. Out of what I could recognize I'll be watching:
>No game no life (based madhouse)
>Soul Eater Not
And maybe "Totally not Hibiki" by A-1 and "We want the Cancolle audience" by Gainax.
That's enough for "non-shit" status.
And there is quite some other stuff looking neat beyond those.
superior taste incoming
>Kagerou Project finally happening and New Keroro
NOTHING CAN STOP THIS HAPPENING TRAIN
Keroro will be shorts tho, not actual full length episodes sadly.
Soul eater not
Awww yeah my dick is ready
Looks like a shitty season again. I'll watch Keroro Gunsou even though it's flash. Mekaku City Actors because vocaloid quirkiness + SHAFT might be interesting visually. Knights of Sidonia might be interesting. And of course Mushishi.
The rest looks terribad though.
>High school club shit
>'Comedy' about being a mangaka
>Sports anime that probably isn't that bad but will never stand out enough to hold interest
>Alternate reality Edo-period action show with ecchi gimmick
>Super robot show with ecchi gimmick
>Shitty harem with eroge flag gimmick
>High school age dramas about mysterious girls and the protagonist falling in love with them
>Shota left alone in a harem of perverts
>Token NoitaminA show with watercolour promo art and boring premise.
Oh well. At least the shota one might be interesting.
They make more every year since Evangelion aired. There were a couple of years around 2005-2007 where it dropped a bit though.
Whoa, Ping Pong is getting animated? I'll steel myself for disappointment.
Yet no loli show, if we assume that NGNL will be totally butchered by Madhouse as expected.
I only really care about Ping Pong and Mekaku City Actors. The rest of it looks negligible I guess Mushishi.
It is Yuasa directing.
>Hitsugi no Chaika
The time has come and so have I.
I'm so hyped for Ping Pong. Just recently finished the manga after hearing Yuasa would be directing the anime. Even watched the 2002 live action film which was a pretty decent adaption.
>I'm as casual as fuck
Good, now get out.
Good, now get out.
I only have plans to watch Rabu Ribu and Soul Eater Not. I haven't heard of any of these other shows. Anything I should give a shot?
>saying Ping Pong, Mekaku and Mushishi is the only ones to look for
>all of those are mature and edgy series for mature people like you and a shounen comedy that still flies because it's not "uguu moe crap"
I hate your kind of logic, and certainly not much better than idiots claiming "backlog season".
Now fuck out. >>>/co/ is more your place.
Dakara H had the same concept.
It flopped, I guess
why does most look like its from the factory?
Go to YouTube, search for Kagerou Project, encounter the worst fanbase you've ever seen.
Yes, worse than SAO.
>not "uguu moe crap"
Wow you are really going all out now aren't you.
Those are your words, even if you left them unsaid.
What is wrong with you
The retardation of this sentence is hilarious.
>i-it's not a r-recommendation thread guys, i-i swear!
Are you serious?
Are you new and trying too hard to fit in?
In couple of years, it will collapse.
50 shows? This isn't good. The industry was just starting to get back on track after the anime bubble popped a few years ago. But now it just seems like they're going back to one of the main reasons it collapsed.
>ALL DIS FUCKING SHIT TASTE
Looks like we found the SamFlam of Spring 2014
Yeah there are lots of things indicating that will happen right?
Did you even look at this post?
There was no collapse a spike one year sure but dropping 30 shows is hardly a collapse when in 1993 only 30 shows were even made.
So it will take me 50minutes to watch everything?
>SamFlam of Spring 2014
Something that is complete shit but a vocal minority will defend it at all costs? Sounds about right and given the studio behind it the mecha battles will be poorly animated. Thank god for Captain Earth
7 of them are kid's anime that are pushing a card game or some other shit. At least a few of the others will be shorts.
There's about 50 shows airing right now too with all the 2-cour shows included.
>This concept is brilliant
If you're 12
There are 41 that started this season.
2014(so far) 42, with 48 shows listed for Spring. 106 in total.
Mushishi and Mangaka San
A-am I the only one who will watch the new Yugioh show...?
Yes. Why would anyone care about YGO after how bad Zexal was?
Because 5DS was good...?
will it be as good as spring 2011
Yeah....the first arc
I'll check it out. It already looks a million times better than Zexal. I have faith in this Christmas-colored protagonist. I'm also looking forward to finding out what his catchphrases are. Hopefully they wont be stupid shit like "POP FLYIN". They need to go back to the good catchphrases like Jaden had.
Also wasn't that a 4KIDS thing?
Is there any chance of them using older cards more? Zexal is boring when there's some new asspull deus ex machina card in every episode.
I liked YGO: DMX.
I still hope we get legal prints of the other Timelords at some point.
>I want to feel like a real woman.
>Stephenie Meyer rivals other famous American authors like Poe and Steinbeck.
>Yes, I do put ketchup on my steak.
Those are your words, even if you left them unsaid.
Mekaku - 60k
Mahouka - 20k
Jojo - 20k
>Anything that isn't cute girls doing cute things is mature and edgy
Way to show everyone how low your powerlevel is
Watching for sure:
Akuma no Riddle
Usagi desu ka
Inugami-san to Nekoyama-san
Love Live S2
Might be good:
Soul Eater Not
So far I have no expectations. Just looking somewhat forward to is the coffin princess.
But there'll be Tamako Love Story in April, it will probably have lots of hot steamy lesbian sex to make up for it.
Soon anons will jump from their basement windows because they can't cope with the ever-growing backlog anymore.
Too bad nothing past a certain point is even worth backlogging. I've been doing the 3 episode rule for literally everything since...2010 and I drop about 95% of everything that airs
I don't remember how much did parts 1 and 2 sell but part 3 will sell more than the two combined
As usual most of it is shit, but there are a number of definitive good ones like JJBA and Mushishi 2, therefore it's not too bad.
Fuun Ishin Dai Shogun
In the late Edo period, Japan had experienced an unprecedented crisis by Kurofune (Black Ships), the ships from foreign countries. But a giant robot called Onigami, which has existed since ancient time, dispelled the Kurofune ships and the exclusion of foreigners was accomplished. The story begins in Japan where Meiji restoration in 1868 didn't happen. The tagline says, "I can be the greatest man in the world, because I am a virgin!!"
Kamigami no Asobi ~Ludere deorum~
The story revolves around heroine Yui Kusanagi, who is ordered by Zeus, a god and the headmaster of a school he created, to teach the meaning of love to young and handsome gods. The reason he has for doing this is to cancel the negative effects of the weakening bond between the world of the divine and the world of the humans.
Seriously, who writes this shit?
I can pretty much predict the gags in this without even seeing it.
>Zeus, a god and the headmaster of a school he created
>who is ordered by Zeus, a god and the headmaster of a school he created
It's getting to the point where they're just trying to shoehorn a school setting into everything.
It's an Otome VN, reign in your expectations.
I have no idea, but this show sounds brilliant.
The question remains, who writes this shit?
So is this going to be fujobait or otaku wish fullfilment?
Guess it's time for you to leave /a/ forever.
Zeus a shit
Hades is the best faggot god
Athena is best waifu
Ares a bro
>Someone insulted muh tastes
>Better tell them to leave
Why else would you be on /a/ is you hardly watch anime anymore. He didn't even insult your tastes.
Mushishi and PingPong I guess.
Maybe Akuma no Riddle too if they don't make it /u/ shit with a bit of action, but action with a bit of /u/.
Who said I don't watch anime? There's more than just airing anime you know.
Or maybe you wouldn't, because your powerlevel is so low.
Because you replied and still on 4chan.
Makoto Kubota wandered through life, not taking things too seriously or looking too deep within himself. His job as the head of the Izumo Group's youth gang kept him pleasantly occupied with yakuza wars, mahjong and assassinations... Until the day he stumbled upon a strange drug called Wild Adapter that produces bizarre side-effects--including death. Forever changed, Kubota becomes entangled with a drifter named Minoru Tokito, and the two form an unlikely companionship that draws them deeper into the mystery of Wild Adapter...
That actually sounds pretty cool. Anybody read the manga?
/a/ has never been for currently airing series only. Maybe you should do some research on the board before you tell others to leave it.
HOW THE FUCK IS BONES DOING 3 SERIES NEXT SEASON
Maybe they cashed in big on the Dandy murrican dorrars
Fuck that shit. HOW THE FUCK IS BRAIN'S BASE DOING 3 SERIES NEXT SEASON?
These are the faggots ruining the Appeal in the western audience
Guess next season is backlog season.
Max Payne, the anime?
Fuck that shit. HOW THE FUCK IS GAINAX EVEN MANAGING TO DO 1 SERIES NEXT SEASON?
That still doesn't sound as bad as DAL.
so is the gintama anime not coming back?
I think Yama no Susume S2 was announced too. I'll also be watching that.
They're doing 2.
With what money.
>Takes place in a dimension on Earth
>Takes place in the Stars
What do you guys know about business anyways
Why was it so shit if there were so many more shows? Is this counting the 3 minute shows that are becoming popular now? I feel like there were 20 of those last year. Is it counting the movies?
>Why was it so shit if there were so many more shows?
Because quantity =! quality.
>srice of rife
that got me
They're making a Sengoku Muosu Ova...
Holy shit, Turtles is getting a dub? Why didn't they do GLTAS instead
I'm excited for the glorious Mahouka clusterfuck. I think it's going to be that show that really explodes in the casualsphere this year, like SnK did last year and SAO did in 2012.
Soul Eater NOT!
>might pick up
Knights of Cydonia
>strait to the backlog
I'm just going to use the spring season to polish off my backlog more.
Well, I wasn't going to pick it up, but now...
>same production company
>similar character designs
> Rias' VA is main girls VA
Christ I will enjoy this
I don't think it's created by the same guy, just being adapted by the same team that did the DxD animation.
>Knights of Sidonia
NO ONE'S GONNA TAKE ME ALIIIIIIIIIIIVE
How is this Haikyuu? I assume some of you read the manga.
No. Do not marathon Mushishi. Watch it one episode a day and have a wonderful three weeks. Marathoning a slow show like that fucks it up
>knights of Sidonia
>Jojo part 3
Best season in anime history incoming.
Ping Pong and Mushishi alone are likely be some of the best anime of the last 10 years.
Then there's Knights of Sidonia, JoJo, and Black Bullet which is from the director of Monster with the Composer of Evangelion.
>Jojo - 20k
You are vastly undermining how popular Part 3 is.
Because quality is not quantity.
>Ping Pong and Mushishi alone are likely be some of the best anime of the last 10 years.
What is this, ironic shitposting?
Stands are dumb.
Why is there no love for Brynhildr?
Is it because of the major shit Elfen Lied was?
You a ripplefag?
Ripple > Stands > that garbage in part 7
>that garbage in part 7
I personally like stands just as much as ripple but that shit was unbearable.
There sure is a lot of stuff airing next season.
>Watching with the power of a thousand suns
Jojo Part 3
Mekaku City Actors
No Game No Life
Hitsugi no Chaika
Soul Eater NOT
>Probably watching unless it's pure shit
Kanojo ga Flag
Gainax's Mahou Shoujo
Usagi desu ka?
>Straight into the backlog
>Going to pick up regardless of previous knowledge and quality
Anything /a/ hypes up too much. Especially Gary Stu in Hogwarts.
What's it like having shit taste?
I'm not sure it's good. I just think it's great from what I've heard from it.
Is it that bad?
There's really not much else to separate it from the other ten-a-penny 'My life as a mangaka' anime/manga series.
>No Game No Life
>Makaku City Actors
Why would you do this to yourself? They look to be the worst on the chart.
Preemptively dropped then.
It's by Hiroyuki, how could you drop it?
Mekaku City Actors can't be described without sounding extremely generic or spoiling it.
Since I've seen Kagerou Daze I wished for an anime adaptation for it. And I hoped SHAFT would do it. And then all of my wishes came true when it happened. I can't possibly be more hyped for it.
I'm going with NGNL just because the LN author and artist is a BR.It IS a shallow reason, but I can't help my curiosity.
That's why it's a preemptive drop. I will just wait some reactions first.
