Considering it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these kinds of posts (and I have some new readers), I’m gonna explain how my looking at a new season works. If you already know the drill, just hit the jump for my comments.
I only comment on what seems genuinely interesting to me. If I see something like, say, Highschool DxD and comment on it, the comments would be ‘oh hey look, it’s another harem series, moving on’. And that makes for boring reading.
I don’t comment on second seasons (usually). This is because a lot of second/third/fourth seasons tend to be more of the same. Maybe higher production values or something. Another reason is because I probably haven’t seen the first season, because I am a horrible person when it comes to getting things done. No comments on movies and whatnot either, unless something stands out. Anyhoo, that’s my spiel. As usual, the image is at the bottom of the post, so feel free to check that out. Also, many thanks to those who compiled this information. On with the comments!
Ozuma – The idea of seeing an ‘unreleased scenario’ from the man behind Space Battleship Yamato and Harlock intrigues me. It’s apparently going to be a six-episode series, so it should be a pretty easy watch. Also helps that I’m currently on a sci-fi kick. The setting seems pretty interesting, too. Reminds me quite a bit of Trigun from what little we know of it.
Acchi Kocchi – Slice of life with tsundere. Art style looks cute enough. I’ll give it a first impressions post, if nothing else. I could see it being a few-minute-per-episode thing, kind of like Recorder and Randsell.
Zetman – This looks all sorts of badass just from the one screenshot I have handy. It’s giving me a very retro vibe, too. Can’t really comment too much due to lack of information at hand, but it’s got me excited.
Hyou-Ka – Anyone else reminded of Another/Higurashi without all the horrible murders and umbrellas? Because I am. I love a good mystery, so I hope this pulls through. Can’t see it being as dark as the other two, though…
Sankarea – A lot of weird slice-of-life and highschool stuff this time around. Not complaining. Interesting to see how deep it’ll go into the girl’s reasoning behind wanting to become a zombie, too.
Tasogare Otome x Amnesia – Speaking of weird slice of life stuff. Definitely reminded of Another, except the ghost (Yes, I’m still calling Misaki being a spirit of some sort) isn’t inherently terrifying and prone to killing people around her (still calling that theory, too).
Uchuu Kyoudai – Well this is a surprise. It’s… normal. It’s just two brothers, seemingly middle-aged, who made a vow. A big surprise given the rest of the season’s offerings. I have high hopes for it, but don’t know if I’ll be able to watch the whole thing.
AKB0048 – Guerilla. Idols. Guerilla idols. It’s like someone said that Symphogear couldn’t get any more balls-out insane, then Satelight folded their metaphorical arms and… Well, challenge accepted.
Sakamichi no Apollon – It’s interesting if only because of the time period it’s set in and the fact that it seems to be a completely realistic series. I… honestly don’t see myself watching more than an episode or two, but it’s good to see studios try something new.
Haiyore! Nyaruko-san – Loli Cthulhu and aliens. Have I mentioned I love how crazy Japan gets sometimes?
Anyhoo, that’s it. Lots of cool stuff coming up in the next few months, so that makes me happy. Also, there’s a lot of stuff I didn’t cover, so feel free to check out the image below.
