Exactly what the title says. Basically, I usually use the pre-season preview threads made to see what's coming out that sounds like something I should watch. But it hasn't happened yet, so I'm trying to force it. Smiley: tongue Because it would be tantamount to me just posting a vid and saying "Discuss" without adding something of my own, here's one I'm excited about:
Kore Wa Zombie rate me down Ka? wrote:
A second season is scheduled to air in April 2012 officially named: Kore wa Zombie rate me down ka? Of The Dead ( Is This A Zombie?: Of the Dead).


And here's a list of anime coming out soon, courtesy of TVTropes. Which, I know, compiles a list and invalidates my need for you all to do so, but I value some of your opinions.

Eureka Seven AO
Jormungand
Kore wa Zombie rate me down ka? Of The Dead (as soon as I watch the first season)
Lupin III : Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna (I really hope Lupin is actually in this show for more than just a few cameos)
Queen's Blade: Rebellion (for the jiggly of course)
Rock Lee's Springtime of Youth (manga is funny/awesome and 100% less filler than the main series)
Sankarea (sounds oddly interesting)
Zetman (same as above)

Also wtf:
Quote:
Nazo no Kanojo X - (Mysterious Girlfriend X)
Airing from April 7th, for 13 episodes
(PV)

Mikoto Urabe, an unusual girl with some awesome scissors, and Akira Tsubaki, have a special connection. They have the ability to share their emotions and physical conditions through saliva. Tsubaki is addicted to this, and must taste it everyday to avoid going into withdrawal. And that's just the start of the weirdness.

Mysterious Girlfriend X is a pretty entertaining manga. I, for one, can't wait for the anime.

Kore wa Zombie desu ka? is always fun. Lupin and Nazo no Kanojo X also look kind of neat.

I watched Accel World last night. It was an exact copy of C, but I'll probably watch it anyway.

Really only looking forward to Fate/zero and Kore wa Zombie rate me down ka. I don't really like sequels like how it looks like they are doing with Eureka 7 so I may or may not watch it but if I do It will be after it gets a few out. Dusk maiden of amnesia might be interesting but not holding my breath. If all else fails I still have the rest of Moretsu Pirates to look forward to.

The Tasogare Otome X Amnesia manga is pretty decent. It remains to be seen how well it translates into an anime though.

I'll try and watch Zetman, since I enjoyed the manga. What I really want to see is the new Berserk movies, but haven't found the first one online...yet.

Watch a couple of the of the new season so far the ones I was looking forward to turned out as what I was expecting. Check out Sankarea and was surprised how much I enjoyed the first ep so looking forward to seeing more hope it has staying power. Also watched Medaka box, over the top fun after the first one I going to give it a go as well. Finally to what I'm sure lolgaxe dreams are like just with fewer ponies running around. Upotte girls with guns that are guns I don't care how stupid it turns out I will keep watching it.

definitely excited for more fate/zero and kore wa zombie rate me down ka?, but Zetman looks promising aside from the speedbump in episode two where they're trying to pass off jin and kouga as being middleschoolers, but I stopped believing that anime/manga story writers have any idea how ******* weird it is for someone that looks 17 and acts 17 to supposedly be 12. and so does Sankarea. I wanna see a few more episodes of Accel world before I make up my mind about it. I don't know whether I'm actually going to enjoy it, but I will also be watching tasogare otome x amnesia, because the first episode was really amusing.

Of ALL the shows, how the **** do you get C? I loved C, and I can see some similarities, but there's not much in common aside from generic anime plot points that both shows share with about a hundred other animes/mangas.

On another note; am I the only one who's ******* happy that Moretsu Pirates didn't get cut at as a 12-13 episode run? I like the show more with each episode (also that intro.... omg that intro.... Smiley: laugh)

It was probably just the most recent show that I saw with a similar plot. I thought the point system allowing Haru to accelerate and the addiction that came with it sounded similar to C and it's use of money.

So I'm not the only one that's still watching it. I thought the show worked since it never takes itself seriously. I really liked both opening and ending, I just wished the full versions were better.

Jormungand is out and I expect it'll probably be one of my favorites this season.
I've read the manga, but the last Mirai Nikki episode reminded me how awesome Murmur really is.


Final line up of what I'll probably watch, in no particular order:
Jormungand
Zetman
Hairyore! Naruko-san
Kuroko's Basketball
Fate/Zero
Nazo no Kanojo X
Space Brothers
Acell World
Sankarea
Tasogare Otome x Amnesia
Kore Wa Zombie rate me down ka? OF THE DEAD
Medaka Box

Yeah I seen a while back that Moretsu was going to be 26 just happy there is no break. It is light hearted and still enjoyable to watch, brings a bit of balance to the darker shows I watch. I also watch watch Dusk maiden of amnesia, looks like it has promise and might pull off the twist and turns. It been awhile since I seen a really good dark comedy. .

Or at least a dark comedy that knows it's a dark comedy. There's nothing quite like that uncomfortable feeling of a dark, dark story suddenly trying to be funny.

Haiyore! Nyaruko-san! was fairly decent. Funny, though I think prolonged exposure to her "hummingbird on speed" type personality would drive me nuts. Good in small doses. Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals...well, let's just say I'm not gonna be watching another episode of that.

Anyone know of somewhere to watch season 2 of Zombie legally? I haven't seen anything about the second season coming to Crunchyroll and it doesn't appear to be on Funimation either.

ANN tells me it should be on Funimation.

I don't know if link actually helps- I torrent all currently airing shows, so haven't bothered to find it myself.

They may not have started showing it yet, then. Or maybe I missed finding it because of this slow *** work comp leading me to half assing the search. Though there is apparently talk of getting them possibly putting out a Roku app, which will be cool if it happens.

Saw the first episode of Zetman.

Animation is decent, but there's quite a few changes right out of the gate. In the one hand, it'll up the pace a bit (which isn't necessarily a bad thing). In the other, the introduction of one villain(Readers of the manga will know which villain I'm referring too) whom doesn't make their appearance in the manga until much later is going to effect the narrative quite a bit.

The other big change, with Kouga meeting Jin earlier, could make their relationship more interesting.

Yea, I was really unimpressed with the anime version of the Rock Lee spinoff. The manga is @#%^ing hysterical, but the anime just... doesn't pull it off. Smiley: dubious As for the other one, I can't decide whether I actually want to bother watching that one, because it looks like another haruhi rehash, and I try to limit myself to one-two of those at a given time, and right now, Medaka Box seems a LOT more interesting to me.

How is the manga? The series looks interesting, but I've already got like 4 others I'm reading, so I'm wondering if it's worth looking into.

I think Zetman is interesting because of the ways it plays with reconstructing/deconstructing the superhero tropes. But then there is some stupidity, like the gum. That's bullsh*t. You'll know it when you see it.

I think it's an above average manga for what I've read.

Just checked that TVTropes link. Who the **** wants to watch a Rock Lee spinoff? I was actually ANGRY when Gaara didn't kill him during the Chuunin exam.

The manga is actually good even though it's more omake than actual story.
