New season starts January 3rd. Most importantly, IMO, Season 2 of Maoyuu. And a new season of Minami-ke. Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru sounds pretty interesting to me.

But mostly it's a season of sequels and such. Anything strike anyone else's interests?

Edit: So I read the wrong one, what with my sleepiness. Here's the right one.

Isn't that last year's list?

This season nothing really looks that interesting except maybe Space Dandy.

This is what you want to link: http://anichart.net/winter

Anyway, I'm mostly looking forward to the 2nd season of Chuunibyou and the Sailor Moon remake, and continuations of KLK and Golden Time.

Crap. I think you're right. That's what I get for posting with 5 hours of sleep last night. Editing the OP.

After reading the quick descriptions, not a one of those gives me enough info for me to get excited about. I'll look into them more after I've slept.

I forgot about the Sailor Moon remake. Is that actually starting this season?

Yep, those are the two getting added to our rotation as well.

Four anime to keep up with again. Gah! I'm reverting back to my anime-binging, hair-dying weabu self from undergrad a decade ago. Smiley: frown

Ha ha, yeah. I'm watching four shows this season. I haven't done that in probably 10 years.

I believe it's just the first season, so should be no worries there.

The first episode of Log Horizon was alright, but I dunno if I'd really want to watch more?

I dunno, them starting at level cap is a big turnoff for me, particularly with the concept being a MMO-based anime. I would have much preferred the route SAO took, and had everyone start at level 1. I can see why they'd want level 90, for the past relationships and such, but I don't see why the expansion couldn't have come with a hard reset of their levels, equipment, etc. along with the content.

I dunno, seeing a wizard dude who already knows all his spells clear content doesn't sound fun...

Trust me, the later episodes will meet your standards and even explain why they're at level 90. It's definitely better than SAO's second season, and the pacing is better than the first's.

Just checked CR and they added the two OVA for SAO if you haven't seen them yet.

It also has School Days... Smiley: um

Space Dandy was great. Still don't really care about anything else besides the ongoing Log Horizon and Kill la Kill.

Is Space Dandy really that good? The description was not very enticing for me. I guess I'll have to give it a shot >_<.

Haven't watched it yet, but I heard it's FLCL in space.

Saw Pupa ep1. I had no clue they were going for that format. It's not going to be good, but it's going to be funny.

I just watched ep 1 and 2.
It might go places. 1st episode really didn't make any sense, but you learn what Space Dandy does (searches out alien species that have not been identified, for money).

2nd was about Ramen.

There is a "bad" group, guy looks like a Pimp (in space!) after Dandy but why is unknown still.

Cartoon Boobs.

I laughed and enjoyed both episodes, but then I am a fan of FLCL and weird animes.

I would disagree. I think it would be fairly accurate to describe Space Dandy as Redline's character design with Excel Saga's jokes (space and time has even been used as deus ex machina again).

The art and animation is quite good, but I think the humor is a little too low brow.

Yeah. Admittedly it's only been two episodes, but Space Dandy seems a lot more like Excel Saga than FLCL so far.

Watched ep 1 of Chuu2 Ren, looking like it might be ok even though I'm kinda sad they made a sequel. We'll have to see. The first ep did at least do a good job of reminding me why I liked the first season.

It makes sense from a marketing perspective. viewing solely as a person consuming a media product though, I found the first episode hilarious because I guess it distilled for me frustrations I have with many other stories. Certain events needed to happen, and due to lack of time they couldn't even *pretend* for them to occur organically. Events just happen because the plot demands it. I also find the proportion of time devoted to the OP and ED to be amusing.

Yeah, that needs to be abridged, you are already on a clock with these micro episodes. A minute intro and outro really chop down your ~5m short work-space.

Btw, have you been busy lately?
