WELCOME TO METANORN’S MASSIVE SPRING 2011 ANIME CATALOGUE!
This post of 60+ titles took a lot of blood and sweat to compile! Roundups to be posted soon~ ^^;;
Update: Changed some cover images, added links to all skipped list and finally the ROUND UP IS HERE!!!
Kyokai: I feel like, I just did this. Not the review, A LOT OF WORK. So, I’m going to make this short. Spring usually is the time of the year when studios go crazy and give us so much choice that our mind boggles and eyes pop. Though, with the declining quality of anime, I’m not sure if it’s going to be a similar lineup or mix and match of good and bad. Usually it’s the latter so I’m ready to give out some benefit of the doubt. I can only hope some Spring happens here in Asia, or else I’ll be as usual feeling HOT, HOT, HOT till September. >.>
Overcooled: Spring means no more snow, and that means nicer weather. It doesn’t mean I’ll actually be outside to enjoy it, but at least I can study without having to turn the heating on. The spring selection of anime certainly looks a lot warmer than Winter, but I still feel a lot more cynical about it than everyone else I’ve chatted with. Maybe I’m just bitter. OH WELL. Let’s hope you have more luck finding some diamonds in the rough than I did.
Hato-kun: Spring? Don’t me laugh, northern hemisphere! You should know well that in Hato’s domain of the world is slooooowly creeping into Autumn! You know what Autumn means? Actual weather I like! Rain! Wind! Cold! No longer must I be slave to the heat of Summer! And while I’m curled up and warm, studying in my first year of Uni, I’ll know that when I decide to procrastinate (believe me, there will be a lot of that…) I’ll know that I have some good anime to watch!
Sassy: Oh god I’m not even caught up to winter anime at the moment, and SPRING anime is coming up? It looks like I need to switch back into sleepless mode in order to prepare myself. Now let’s take a look at this lineup. I don’t need to look at them beforehand because let’s face it, the only thing that REALLY matters is whether or not I get any Kanae Ito. I was cheated for the winter, so it’s time for the studios to pay up.
Foshizzel: Whoa! What happened to summer and winter! Seems like those shows went by so quickly! Spring season looks decent, hopefully we all can find something worth following. I am only looking at a handful of anime this season, I WANT SOME MECHA! Uh…yea anyway let’s find out what we all like the most!
Ness: Oh Spring is here. One step closer to summer, my friend the Sun, oh how I have missed you. But yeah! Spring Anime!! There’s a good amount that I want to watch and a good selection compared to Winter. But I will probably not be blogging as much this season, there’s so much school stuff going on in the spring that I want to just crawl under a rock. However, I have my eyes set on a few series to come.
Captain: If you were in Tokyo at this time, you’ll see cherry blossoms everywhere. EVERYWHERE. So much so that whenever the wind blows, petals and petals of pink literally smother you. It’s like Kuchiki Byakuya’s in real life, less dangerous Bankai. *cough* Tite Kubo must have gotten the idea from somewhere *cough* troublesome, but nevertheless, pretty. Spring also means that the anime advertisements get a turn for the better, I don’t know why, but they just do. Random fact, there, hey.
Hoshi: In So-Cal, Summer is hell, Winter is hell, and Fall is just plain annoying. Yet Spring, oh dearest Spring, brings the best, non-bipolar weather to the south of Cali, making everyone stop bitching about the weather for once during the year. Now to compliment that, the Spring anime selection is bringing out its best, and even turning some of my personal favorite mangas into anime from Deadman Wonderland to Ao no Excorist to A Channel. I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited for Spring before in my entire life. So many good things to fangirl about, BRING IT ON SPRING~!
Hime: Spring is one of my favourite seasons, the cherry blossoms, those days where it’s sunny but yet raining. It’s just wonderful. And it tends to be pretty good to me when it comes to anime. Summer, the little slut it is, is usually just filled with sequels to bad shows I didn’t care to watch the first time around and Winter is that uncomfortable friend that just doesn’t know what she’s trying to say so she flashes you her panties. Most of my favourite shows come out around this time so for once I can cast off my cynicism and genuinely get excited about stuff. Hur-f*cking-rah!
Kyokai: After reading the above comments, I just remembered that I should be excited because some awesome mangas being animated and some season twos coming in. I can only remember some funny words right now… Nomobuyo, Oshi, Hashitawa, Dokeda, Gunmicha, De, Ribura! It’s ironic, when read backwards as raburi de chamingu dakedo watashi ha shi o yobu mono, it means “Lovely and charming; however, I’m the one who will call upon death.” I did call upon death when I started reviewing this post but oh well, there’s a silver lining at the end of the tunnel and I will REACH it! Without any further ado, the breakdown:
>> Action Packed Circuit!: Here you will find all the action, mecha and shounen series, which includes some awaited and not so awaited titles.
