Spring Anime Catalogue 2011


Kyokai: Oh God! This list took me around three days to put right. I know, we are a bit late than usual with our reviews, but you can say we have been quite busy with some backend stuff. Thanks to Overcooled, Fosh and Ness, who helped out in making this monster draft possible. If you include the skip list, around HUNDRED Series, OVAs and Movies are releasing in Spring alone! Yep, some studios are working over time to entertain us and even at such dark times that are still prevalent with many areas still water and electricity less. Take out some time to think good thoughts about Japan and if you can, do donate to the right relief bodies.

We haven’t really followed any specific chart rather combed through ANN, MAL, AdniDB and Moonphase to get a comprehensive list of anime releasing in Spring 2011. The following information and summary to be added after a breather as this post already took a lot of time to compile at my end only.

In a Summary, Spring Chart credited to nelson☆彡:

Spring Studios Roundup:

  • Some new contenders are on the horizon. The leading Studios are taking a back seat this season. So, it’s not like J.C.Staff in Fall, producing 20% of the titles.
  • Interestingly, Tatsunoko Production is a very old studio, who has gone quite ACTIVE lately. They will be the busiest among the new ones producing three TV series: Pretty Rhythm: Aurora Dream, Sket Dance and C, while two OVAs: Yozakura Quartet and Princess Resurrection.
  • Surprisingly, Sunrise is the only studio that is going strong and coming up with three major titles this spring. Namely, Gintama, Tiger & Bunny and Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon.
  • Production I.G has upped an ante as well with a melee of OVAs and Speicals: Wakate Animator Ikusei Project, xxxHolic Rou, GitS 3D movie, Break Blade movie 6, Sengoku Basara Two Shorts and a TV series Moshidora.
  • Toei Animation is being quite active with three releases of old titles like Toriko, Ring ni Kakero and Digimon Xros Wars. They are also releasing another PreCure movie and Tezuka Osamu no Buddha.
  • Madhouse is making me tired with all these Marvel rehashes. I would rather have a go at Kaiji S2 rather than burn my childhood memories of X-Men awesomeness. In the OVA department they will continue with their Black Lagoon: Roberta’s Trail and finish up HOTD with a beach episode? I wonder.
  • My favourites, SHAFT is climbing high with two series offerings of Denpa Onna and Maria Holic’s season two with Katteni Kaizō OVA, while Brains Base is coming out with Dororon Enma and Hotarubi no Mori e movie (lol, wut!?).
  • Manglobe is slowly becoming a very aspiring studio. They are bringing in Deadman Wonderland and KamiNomi Season 2; both I hope would be total win!
  • A-1 Pictures is animating one of my recent favourite manga: Ao no Exorcist; also, Ano Hana and Fairy Tail special
  • J.C. Staff is still keeping a low profile by animating Aria the Scarlett Ammo, Maid-sama and Kämpfer für die Liebe special with Nomad, which is releasing OreTsuba as well.
  • AIC is quite OVA-centric this time with the release of Amagami SS Special, Shukufuku no Campanella OVA and a hentai title too (0.0).
  • Studio DEEN has gone Shounen-ai (YES! Making all those bishie series gave them a direction, ne~?) and are coming out with Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi OVA and twelve-episode series on the same.
  • Studio Gokumi to come out with A Channel and our favourite lulz-producer: Koe de Oshigoto!’s second episode.
  • White Fox, Kyoto Animation, Seven Arcs, P.A. Works, Diomedea, Dogakobo, Bee Train, Xebec, Gathering, Gallop, TMS Entertainment and DLE are coming out with one series only.
  • Bones and GAINAX are taking a chill pill this season. Release the damn movie, GAINAX!!! (Refer to Quickening)

Spring Seiyuu Roundup: It’s all about the new blood these days~ I want some of my oldies back! D:


  • It was OD in Fall but this time around the busiest Male Seiyuu is actually Tomokazu Sugita for whom I’m quite glad that it is he. He’ll be voicing the awesome Gintoki and appearing in OreTsuba, Sket Dance, Tono to Issho 2 series, while Air Gear, Sex Pistols and Spelunker Sensei OVAs. Ono Daisuke on the other hand will only be appearing in Dog Days, Tono to Issho and Yozakura Quartet’s second OVA. He sure needs the rest.
  • Hiro Shimono will be quite busy as well with Ring ni Kakeru, KamiNomi S2, OreTsuba, Sket Dance, while Gundam Unicorn, Sex Pistol and Baka to test OVAs.
  • The seasoned Ryotaro Okiayu will be voice-acting in Toriko, Ring ni Kakero and Ao no Exorcist.
  • Junichi Suwabe will be voicing for Deadman Wonderland, Blooming Flowers, OreTsuba, while Fairy Tail and HOTD Specials.
  • Yuuki Kaji’s climbing the seiyuu ladder too with three series and two OVA roles. Namely, Deadman Wonderland, Ao no Exorcist, Blooming Flowers, Yozakura Quartet episode two and Air Gear OVA.
  • I’m glad to see Takahiro Sakurai being busy with Dog Days, Ano Hana, C and Katteni Kaizo OVA (SHAFT, you win with awesome Sakurai roles~).
  • Nobuhiko Okamoto would be delighting me by voicing Rin (Ao no Exorcist), along with roles in Sekai Ichi, Air Gear, Shukufu, Shiki and Kaichou wa Maid-sama! OVA/Specials.
  • Hiroshi Kamiya will be around as Mephesto in Ao no Exorcist, Ring ni Kakeru and Sekai Ichi series.
  • Some more quick favourites:
    • Akira Ishida to reprise his role of Katsura in Gintama and would also be voicing in Henzemi and Princess Resurrection OVA.
    • Satoshi Hino to voice in OreTsuba series, while Air Gear and Spelunker Sensei OVAs.
    • Tomokazu Seki to voice in Sket Dance, Steins; Gate series and Air Gear OVA (IS EVERYONE ON AIR GEAR?! How long is that OVA anyway?)
    • Namikawa Daisuke will be part of Kaiji S2 and Roberta’s trail and Gundam Unicorn OVAs.
    • Two ROLES:
      • Junji Majima to appear in Aria the Scarlet Ammo and Blooming Flowers.
      • Mamoru Miyano luckily would be voicing two roles in Dog days and Steins; Gate.
      • Same for the celebrity Gackt, who would be appearing in Tono to Issho 2 and Shiki special.
      • Norio Wakamoto to voice in Dog days and Dororon Enma.
      • Nakata Jouji to voice in Sket Dance and Princess Resurrection.
      • Yuuichi Nakamura to voice in Sekai Ichi (fangasm) and Fairy Tail special.
  • SADLY, Keiji Fujiwara and Jun Fukuyama are only appearing in one role; both in Ao no Exorcist.



  • Kana Hanazawa will again be the voice whore of the season. It’s not that I don’t like here-I LOVE HER but woman, don’t you get tired? Oh sorry, I’m preaching to the choir. She’ll be voicing eight roles; namely, Deadman Wonderland, Ao no Exorcist, Dog days, Henzemi, Steins;Gate, Moshidora, Morita-san OVA and Asobi ni Iku yo! OVA.
  • Kitamura Eri is busy as usual with two major roles, while 6 from OVA/Movie. Namely: Ao no Exorcist, Sengoku Otome, Queens Blade, Princess Resurrection, HOTD OVA, Katteni OVA, Shiki Special and PreCure Movie.
  • Rie Kugimiya is back with a back, of course with Kagura in Gintama and voicing roles in Ariathe Scarlet Ammo, Lotte’s Toy, Queen’s blade and Fairy Tail special.
  • Noto Mamiko to voice roles in Blooming Flowers, Dororon Enma, Tono to Issho, Queen’s Blade OVA and Kamfer special.
  • Yu Kobayashi’s still up with her own brand of voice with roles in Sket Dance, Steins;Gate, Maria Holic Alive, Tono to Issho 2 and Air Gear OVA.
  • Yui Horie to voice in Dog days and Lotte’s Toy series, while Fairy Tail, Katteni Kaizo and Kamfer  OVA/Special.
  • Marina Inoue to voice in Sket Dance, Maria Holic Alive, HOTD OVA and Kamfer Special.

  • Inoue Marina, another regular will be voicing 4 roles: major series in her kitty: Sket Dance, Maria Holic Alive, HOTD OVA and Kamfer special.
  • Saori Goto’s lucky this season with Steins;Gate, Maria Holic Alive and C in her kitty.
  • Quick Favourites:
    • Saori Hayami to voice Haqua (finally) in KamiNomi S2, Ano Hana series, while Morita-sa, Princess Resurrection and Air Gear OVA.
    • Megumi Toyoguchi to voice-act in Sket Dance, Sengoku Otome, Black Lagoon and Gundam Unicorn OVAs.
    • Sawashiro Miyuki to appear in Maria Holic Alive, Yozakura Quartet and HOTD OVAs.
    • Kanae Itō to voice Elcea in KamiNomi S2; also, Blooming Flowers, Queen’s blade OVA and Asobi ni Iku yo! OVA.
    • Nana Mizuki to appear in Dog days, Kamfer special and PreCure movie.
    • Yōko Hikasa limitedly voicing only two series: Dog days and Moshidora, while Seitokai OVA.
    • Romi Park is still around for voicing adolescent boys: Ganta Igarashi in Deadman Wonderland and Komatsu in the new Toriko.
    • Aoi Yūki, owner of that mellow voice to appear in A Channel and Shiki special.
    • Chiaki Omigawa and Chiwa Saitou to voice only one role, Blooming Flowers and Katteni OVA respectively.
  • Sadly, no Sakamoto Maaya this season. T__T

    Man I’ve been waiting for this post for ages XD It’s good to see that our opinions on shows are on par but still, the anime does not reflect the quality of the manga. Remember that! D:

    Great job on writing this up, I’ve been gobbling up everyone’s opinions lately and it’s cool to see how everyone varies on certain series. Good to see that there is a show for everyone this season.

    I just hope the season doesn’t disappoint

    • Kyokai says:

      Hahahaa! We were late because of SO MUCH material out there and us being a big group but thanks. It’s good to have so many opinions rather than just one kind of information. Also, I’ll give Sket Dance a read, no worries there.

      Interestingly, I haven’t been as excited for Spring like I was of Fall, I dunno, maybe failing expectations? Though I hope my favourites get a good running start.

      Once I’m done with the roundup, I have to finish reading the one at SJ too.

      • Hime says:

        It can’t be any worse than the winter season.

        • Bass says:

          Which one is usually the better season, fall or spring? :O

          • Kyokai says:

            It’s usually Spring. Fall just has some good surprises but lacks in number. Spring is definitely the busiest. ^^

  2. umi_no_mizu says:

    ooh looks like theres plenty to check out =P lessee looking forward to most:
    Deadman Wonderland
    Ao no Exorcist
    C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control
    Gyakkyō Burai Kaiji: Hakairoku-hen (come on, it’s Namikawa XD)
    Katteni Kaizō
    and of course the Shiki special =D

    • Hime says:

      Deadman Wonderland and Ao no Exorcist look to be the shining gems of the spring season.

    • Foshizzel says:

      Awesome list! Can’t wait for Deadman and Ao no Exorcist! Probably most excited for those.

      Shiki special sure! Why not I liked the series.

  3. spazer says:

    No love for Kaiji? Whaaaat. Also, Steins;Gate has the some of the best time travel plot elements I’ve ever seen.

  4. baka_girl says:

    Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi has Hiroshi Kamiya in it?? Now I feel like I want to watch this series 😀

    Definitely watching: Ao no Exorcist (Hell YES!), Shiki Special (more Natsuno pleaseee :D)
    Might be watching: C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control, Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi, Maria Holic Alive, Spelunker Sensei, Katteni Kaizo

    I think there’s a little mistake in Ao no Exorcist seiyuu list, Hiroshi Kamiya is voicing Mephisto as far as I know..

    • Hime says:

      Hiroshi Kamiya’s like the dark horse of yaoi drama CDS, he creeps up every now and then. It’s good to see him in something animated, though I don’t think he has a huge role.

    • Foshizzel says:

      WOoooooooooo more love for Ao no Exorcist! YAY for more Shiki!

      Well Wikipedia says Hiroshi Kamiya and ANN says Ryotaro Okiayu so not sure who to actually go by Mal probably has someone else too lolol.

      • baka_girl says:

        MAL say it’s Kamiyan 🙂
        And from the trailer in Star Driver 21 (not sure if it’s 4th or 5th trailer), if my ear didn’t deceive me, it’s Kamiyan who voiced Mephisto.
        Not insisting, just sharing my opinion 😀

        Ah, I see that you already changed Mephisto’s seiyuu!

        • Kyokai says:

          Thanks for the info though. I always go by ANN > MAL because MAL is notorious for not giving out correct information; however, I trawled the web and found out that it is indeed Kamiyaan who voices Mephisto, while Ryotaro’s voicing Igor.

          • baka_girl says:

            you’re welcome~
            everything for my beloved Kamiyan :DD
            Too bad he didn’t get many role this season -_-“

            • Kyokai says:

              Srsly! He’s reducing his work since the last two seasons. Same for OD… I want MOAR of them! D:

            • anaaga says:

              @kyokai: yeah OD i miss that smexy husky voice :'(

            • Kyokai says:

              What is up with our favourite seiyuus?! D:

  5. anaaga says:

    gintama – if it’s gona be like 200+ episodes again, i ain’t watching this
    deadman wonderland – yes. yes. YYYEEEEEEEEESSSSSSS
    hidan no aria – the black uniform reminds me of final fantasy 7 before crisis
    Ao no Exorcist – *fangirl squeal*
    X-MEN – not watching this, but lol Cyclops looks so ugly my crush for him is practically gone thanks to this

    nichijou – daaw, reminds me of yotsuba, which is cute
    ano hana – it sounds too cheesy, i’ll pass. and my tragedy antenna perked when i read the summary
    god knows 2 or whatever it is – NO. NO. NO
    Blooming Flowers – The girl kind of reminds me of kobato. the face. don’t ask me why
    A Channel – so cute!
    OreTsuba – no shit, it’s harem. HAREM. HAREM = NO
    Hen Zemi – i am an anti-psychological person. so no. NO. NO
    I HATE HAREM I HATE HAREM I HATE HAREM. exceptions when it’s a reverse harem

    Money of Soul – i already have a crush on the main guy now.
    Steins;Gate – i want microwaves like that. but since i know i won’t i’ll just watch this

    Koe de Oshigoto – OH HELL YEAH MY POR-,er, EROTICA is back! watching it for the fun of it
    Air Gear – hhhhmmmmmm…….
    Highschool of the Dead – look at that, i'm already laughing. that's how stupid it is
    Sex Pistols – i still don't like how the animate the dramatic part of the manga, not the extremely interesting part of the manga, but i'll still watch it because it's YAOIII~~ Once more, hato sassy fo and captain you guys suck
    Hen Zemi – not even gona touch with a ten-foot pole
    Seitokai – YESSS!!
    Norageki – watching this. so watching this!

    Amagami SS – i actually like this series. i'm still waiting for the incest episode between the main guy and the nishishishishi sister though. if the news is true
    Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo – the poster kinda reminds mf fractale…

    huh? isn't there gona be a Sekai-Ichi hatsukoi OVA?

    • anaaga says:

      omg my comment is soo fuckin long i’m so sorry i’m so sorry! >.< feel free to delete this comment

      but wow, that's a lot of titles!

    • sassy says:

      Excuuuuse me if we don’t care for yaoi

    • Captain says:

      No! Anaaga! How could you say that about Gintama ; A ;
      It’s always worth watching..
      *crawls to a corner*

      • Hime says:

        it is good, but just so hard to get into cause of the MAHOOOOOSIVE number of episodes.

        • Kyokai says:

          My advice to you, non-gintama watchers. Skip the first two episodes and start from episode three. It’s gag-filled with lots of comedy. Usually it hits home so you will enjoy it. It has become my dinner buddy these days. xD

          • anaaga says:

            let us not forget that i have a crappy net, so i can’t mass download 200+ episodes

            • Tofu says:

              My friend gave me 5 episodes to watch for Gintama and the deal was… If I enjoyed them, I have to watch the new season… I watched the 5 episodes she picked and OMG I love Gintama!!! xD

              I suggest watching first: Gintama OVA – JUMP FESTA 05
              2nd: Gintama OVA – Shiroyasha Koutan
              3rd: Gintama episode 166
              4th: Gintama episode 175
              5th: Gintama episode 119

              Instead of watching 200+ to get into Gintama, all you need to do is watch these 5 Anaaga xD Enjoy~

            • Overcooled says:

              Ew, I never watch long series…manga all the way. Easy on bandwidth limits, faster to go through, and (usually) better art!

            • anaaga says:

              @tofu: i’ll try. i haven’t finished bakemonogatari and clannad (which is torturing me right now)

              @OC: deshou? i could never understand why people still watch bleach and narotu. especially bleach, because it’s mostly fillers >.<

          • Captain says:

            How can you eat your dinner without spitting it out because of the laughing fits that you’ll have ; A ;
            Kyokai, you’re amazing.

            • Kyokai says:

              Awesomeness of healthy food is; unless it being toned-down curry or soup, it’s pretty handy to eat (fruits/veggies ftw~) so I enjoy my food while laughing my ass off. Also, for those who want to cheat the system, do what Tofu did.

              @Cool, I didn’t like the manga art so meh. Catching up very slowly as its worth it.

            • sassy says:

              I EAT TOFU

              YES THAT TOFU


            • anaaga says:

              @Kyokai: what do you eat every week, breakfast lunch and dinner? i’m planning to go on a diet…PLANNING TO

            • MikADo says:

              Healthy food for sassy

            • Tofu says:

              YOU WISH YOU CAN EAT ME SASSY!! 😀

      • anaaga says:

        well, it was long…

        i could say the same thing about yaoi.

        how could you? :'(

      • Foshizzel says:

        Lol it’s ok captain!

        -Pat back-

    • Foshizzel says:

      Wooo Gintama! I gotta watch Moreeeeeee

      Deadman looks good love that plot, hopefully it does become something fun.

      Ao no Exorcist Woooooo!! can not wait! 😀 😀

      Xmen- Looks alright, ill probably do a first impression.

      nichijou- Wow that first OVA So damn cute! Loved the talking cat lolol so good.

      Lots of specials and movies! Can not wait to see them xD

  6. Deadman Wonderland — Read the first volume and like the story. Also a BIG fan of Romi Park, so I can’t wait to hear her voice again. XD (And yes~~~ Junichi~! <3 <3 You still own my heart!)

    Ao no Exorcist — Been meaning to read this manga, but too lazy to even start. (I haven't even continued reading Deadman Wonderland because of said laziness..) So I'm also planning to check this out. XD

    X-Men — Downloading for the boyfriend. ._. But it'll probably be deleted like Iron Man and Wolverine after the first episode or two..

    The World God Only Knows S2 — Just watched the entire first season a few weeks ago.. it wasn't too bad, but it had it's moments, I suppose. Wanna see if it gets better. (lol Keima's mom is the best character. XD)

    Sket Dance — Watched previews of this already.. I know I'm interested in it. XD

    C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control — Saw the second or third commercial for this. Now I'm interested.

    Steins;Gate — Another download for the boyfriend..

    Koe de Oshigoto! — lolness for the boyfriend. We both enjoyed the first episode.

    Kaichou wa Maid-sama Special — Enjoyed the shoujo-ness, so I'll watch this to see the characters again. XD

    Either way… I'm going to be checking out almost all the titles to see if anything else catches my eye. XD That's how I got hooked onto Star Driver.

    Note: Seitokai Yakuindomo OVA has the wrong image. lol The image used is from Seitokai no Ichizon, the one about the guy who loves dating games and wants to turn the student council into his harem. Not the Seitokai Yakuindomo with the perverted girls. XD

  7. Ugh, idk what happened, but my reply didn’t show up. It happens to me a lot. o.O

    Deadman Wonderland — Read the first volume and like the story. Also a BIG fan of Romi Park, so I can’t wait to hear her voice again. XD (And yes~~~ Junichi~! <3 <3 You still own my heart!)

    Ao no Exorcist — Been meaning to read this manga, but too lazy to even start. (I haven’t even continued reading Deadman Wonderland because of said laziness..) So I’m also planning to check this out. XD

    X-Men — Downloading for the boyfriend. ._. But it’ll probably be deleted like Iron Man and Wolverine after the first episode or two..

    The World God Only Knows S2 — Just watched the entire first season a few weeks ago.. it wasn’t too bad, but it had it’s moments, I suppose. Wanna see if it gets better. (lol Keima’s mom is the best character. XD)

    Sket Dance — Watched previews of this already.. I know I’m interested in it. XD

    C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control — Saw the second commercial, I believe, and became more interested.

    Steins;Gate — Another download for the boyfriend..

    Koe de Oshigoto! — lolness for the boyfriend. We both enjoyed the first episode.

    Kaichou wa Maid-sama Special — Enjoyed the shoujo-ness, so I’ll watch this to see the characters again. XD

    Either way… I’m going to be checking out almost all the titles to see if anything else catches my eye. XD That’s how I got hooked onto Star Driver.

    Note: Seitokai Yakuindomo OVA has the wrong picture. lol The image is from Seitokai no Ichizon, the one about the guy who loves harem games and wants to turn the student council into his harem. Not the Seitokai Yakuindomo with the perverted girls. XD But Seitokai no Ichizon did get news about more anime on the way… so was that a mix up?

    • Bass says:

      Hell yea Sket Dance *high fives*

      Although I suggest you check the manga out too, even if the first volume is a slow burn :3

      • *high fives back~* I guess I’ll do that, since I’m FFXI-less because of the earthquake and tsunami business. lol I haven’t had anything to do since they closed down the servers.

        Speaking of manga… I need to catch up to (lol)Shin Prince of Tennis and D.Gray-man. So I guess adding Sket Dance, more Deadman Wonderland, and possibly Ao no Exorcist won’t be too bad.

    • Foshizzel says:

      More love for Deadman! Seems everyone is excited to see this, I know I can’t wait hahaha.

      Ao no Exorcist- Yesssss this is going to be epic! I read like half of the manga but forgot most of it.

      • I know! When Deadman Wonderland was first announced, I was like “meh, another shounen manga turned anime”. But then one day, I got bored and just read the first volume and got hooked. Then saw Romi Park as Ginta and just had to put the anime on my “to watch” list. lol I love her, in a non-yuri way. And omg, I’m not even gonna start with Junichi… He’s like my ultimate drool-worthy seiyuu, I suppose. lol Atobe (from PoT) totally got me hooked on his voice. XDD

        • Kyokai says:

          First, we love long comments. <3 Second, even if your comment doesn't show, I can still see it in spam. I always rescue them so no worries where they go. This happens because we get many spambot attacks so yeah.

          Awesome list, I'm gonna watch most of them. Also, that pic was a mixup at the backend, corrected. xD

          • lol thanks for letting me know. I was wondering since I’ve seen it happen a lot with a good majority of my responses and sometimes never see many of them. XD

            And I noticed the pic change yesterday. XD
            Yay~ lol the Seitokai Yakuindomo OVA might also be added to the list, since the boyfriend loved the first few episodes.

            • Foshizzel says:

              Seitokai Yakuindomo is so random and funny! The perfect type of show I love hahah

              That ova should be really good hopefully 😀

  8. Carla says:

    Oh, this sucks…
    I’m so dissapointed right now…
    But I’m interesting in Maria Holic Alive (But i’m not SOOO excited about it)
    And the only things that made me go like HELL YEAH! was Shiki Special >w<

    • Overcooled says:

      It doesn’t SUCK, but I don’t feel very excited. As long as it’s better than the winter season…

      I’m ALWAYS excited for shiki lawl

    • Foshizzel says:

      Maria Holic was great! I died laughing with season one, lets hope the next season is just as good 😀

    • Kyokai says:

      There are a lot of bishies, hopefully, you’ll get your fix.

  9. Alynn says:

    Might watch Aria the Scarlet Ammo, manga was kind of weird.

    Also Deadman Wonderland, Steins Gate, World Only God Knows… just to name a few.

    Hmm I’m definetly watching Ao no Exorist, Steins;Gate, and of course that awesome Shiki special that I’ve been looking forward to ever since Shiki ended.

    C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control looks so awesome,and it’s also directed by really great people, I hope it turns out pretty good.

    • Hime says:

      I never thought much of Steins;Gate when I first heard about it, now I’m dead excited 😀

  11. Junko says:

    Alright, so I didn’t expect to pick up much but…I was wrong..

    Deadman Wonderland
    Ao no Exorcist (with the adds in all my Star Driver subs I can’t NOT watch it)
    Ano Hana
    TWGOK S2 (Can’t wait for this to get to the series arcs)
    Hanasaku Iroha
    Sket Dance (IDK what you guys are in, this was hilarious)
    Money of Soul
    Steins Gate (ready for mindf**k)
    Sekui Ichi Hatsukoi (I HAVE NO SHAME)
    Sex Pistols ep2 (might need to go find ep1..)
    Baka Test (just ‘cos I saw the series, may aswell)
    Katteni Kaizo
    Shiki special (:D)
    Kaichou special
    Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo

    and when it finally get’s a good sub…

    MACROSS FRONTIER: SAYONARA TSUBASA (I realise it’s summer season but I had to mention it. I saw the figurines for the movie release and all the lolita collabs, my collectors heart can’t take it!)

  12. Starry says:

    KAMINOMI SEASON 2!!!!!!!! XD

    Too bad Hanazawa Kana isn’t here anymore. But at least we have Toyosaki Aki. 8D I’m looking forward to her character CD already….

    There seems to be quite a few interesting animes this time… Hope that they will actually be good though… T_T

    • Overcooled says:

      Kaminomi has a lot of good seiyuu, so I’ll be too distracted to miss her. Yes, even someone with an adorable voice like Kana Hanazawa. Season 2 yessss

      I hope the spring season pleasantly surprises me!

    • sassy says:

      Kana Asumi (aka NISHISHI) is in Kaminomi 2… just hope she keeps her voice pretty normal this time (NISHISHI)

    • Kyokai says:

      Kana is already in too many anime, so no worries there.

  13. Tofu says:

    You guys were talking about Sengoku Basara in the Yu Gi Oh section XDD I was wondering why it said possibly blogging: Cool (cool wants to blog yu gi oh!?!) 😛 jkz jkz

    Aria no Hidan has a girl who looks like Nagato in it Hato!!!

    Definitely watching Moshidora for Hikasa Yoko but not Dog Days…. that thing is not worth my time…

    That picture isn’t even Seitokai! D: But damn, what anime is it from? I’m liking the art~

    Koe de Oshigoto… gotta keep up to my deals don’t I Hato? 😐 But really, this isn’t as bad as School Days mate

    HOTD and Norageki… definitely watching! I actually thought Norageki came out during Winter :\

    • Tofu says:

      Hato!! How could you have stood still as to see K-ON special be put into the ‘others’ list!?!?! As a rabid fan boy I will not allow this Kyo! 😛 But great job on the massive post xD You deserve a weeks rest!!

    • sassy says:

      It was from Seitokai no Ichizon, which is also a pretty funny series, hehe.

      • MikADo says:

        Seitokai no Ichizon was reallly fun :3
        apparently second season is coming out !!

    • Overcooled says:

      lol no, I’m actually gonna try to blog the first episode of Yu Gi Oh! at least. HOW COULD I PASS THAT UP?!?! At least I’m not watching Koe de Oshigoto *cough*

    • Foshizzel says:

      WOoooot 4 HoTD can’t wait for more 🙂

      • Tofu says:

        HOTD *thumbs up!* xD

        • Kyokai says:

          There was one errant spoiler tag that hid the whole Sengoku Otome post, but I’ve fixed that; same for the Seitokai image too.

          Actually, I didn’t skip K-On! on purpose, we just noticed it too late and all of us had already booked in their comments. But for the life of me, I didn’t have energy to add something like the Horizon and Katteni Series/OVA.

          Agree with everyone. We should do a voiceful (my word) review of Oshigoto and bully Hato to make some awesome ‘noises’.

  14. Dan-go says:

    it looks abit too much like every other season of anime tbh, nothing looks like they’re going to put a creative spin on anything, i think i’ll be sticking to the slice of life animes, this season they’re always enjoyable, and of course ALL the SHAFT productions

    • Kyokai says:

      It has too many titles! Even Fall didn’t have as many. Let’s see how this pans out though.

  15. Gunny says:

    Gintama >> I’m not cool enough.

    Ao no Exorcist >> it reminded of shana… dunno why o.o

    Deadman Wonderland >> I did not read this cuz I was waiting for it to get animated…and here it is *-*

    Nichijou >> just found my before-wonderland-fix

    Ano Hana >> might test- wait, this music is just to sad for me ;__;

    KamiNomi >> might check D:

    A Channel >>> plus Nichijou combo *-*

    Hen Zemi >>> (:

    Dororon >> DAT TRAILER MUSIC. Aside from that, Ika-musume wearing dat KamiNomis girl hairpin?

    Denpa onna >> SHAFT D: SHINBO D:… but still, it doesn’t look cool enough to me.

    Sket Dance >> Usui doesn’t have robot voice. I’m desapointed.

    C >> is this original ani? well… checking it anyway

    Steins;Gate >> dunno ‘-‘

    Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi >> oh fuck. BL. And I’m afraid I might like this. oh god… what do I do? @[email protected]

    Maria Holic Alive >> I laughed a lot with to the frst season. And I’m straight.

    Air gear >> ;__;

    HOTD >> Gimme world’s end/explosion.

    Sex Pistols >> cool… oh wait, Yaoi again.

    Norageki >> been waiting for this ‘-‘

    Hoshi wo Ou Kodomo >> “Asuna likes to spend her time listening to the strange music […]” COUNT ME IN.

    Imma doing at least 1 episode to every single one… cuz of Madoka. Also Moshidora is not doing it right.

    • anaaga says:


      and sex pistols too. it has a very interesting plot.


      • Gunny says:

        @[email protected] I’m not really into Yaoi… I’m afraid I might like it lol. Still, I… think I gonna try… D:::: OH GOD. WHAT AM I THINKING?!

        • anaaga says:

          you’re not thinking anything weird. it’s normal if you’re curious about yaoi. NORMAL NORMAL

          now look at my eyes and repeat after me: “I will watch Sex Pistols”. Repeat that three times

    • sassy says:

      Yay Taishou Yakyuu Musume (Kanae Ito) 😀

      Stay away from BL, it’s bad for your [mental] health. Ignore everyone who tells you otherwise. IGNORE COMPLETELY.

      • Kyokai says:

        It’s okay to be curious. Everyone should watch yaoi, just for the heck of it. xD

        Btw Gunny, definitely original anime, C is.

        • Gunny says:

          Oh thanks for the info ^^ I’m really fond to original ani *-* danm you Madoka for doing this to me ((((:

          Show ▼

          • Kyokai says:

            I expect a lot of good things from C and whaaaaaatttttt did you waaaaatchhhhhhhh….. It’s one of the most fucking horrid shows on this planet. It’s only laughable when you are doing a group watch, who are well informed and seasoned; mind you. It’s just wrong and even an ante above shoutacon. Ah man, I feel sorry for you to be scarred for life.

            Some yaoi is actually good; just don’t watch shoutacons! Dx

            • anaaga says:

              @Gunny: LOL Gunny watched Boku no Pico. first, don’t ask your friend for good yaoi. if you want some good yaoi, i can list them for you. boku no pico and things such that are for experts who can tolerates lots of things or who reads yaoi on daily basis
              you should really really watch sex pistols. it’s actually one of the good yaoi i know. so WATCH sex pistols!

              @kyokai: i imagined the face you had when u read a shotacon…lol

          • Gunny says:

            My friend is a good person… but that was a BIT to hard. And no, she’s not into little boys doing these things… Shotacon/lolicon is wrong… AAHR EVERYTINHG ABOUT THAT SHOW IS SO WRONG D8.
            Thing is that we just like to pull pranks at each other a lot… ( and she already paid for it F: )

            Now she was telling me to watch okane ga nai… [this time] I googled some reactions… and lol.

            @anaaga …I will watch Sex pistols.

            • anaaga says:

              yes, that’s the wise choice you made gunny. i love you more now

              don’t watch okane ga nai. the bottom dude practically looks like a little child. and the sex scenes are pretty intense

            • Kyokai says:

              Another title to stay away from. What’s up with your friend and shotacan references? Definitely wants another one back at you. xD

            • Gunny says:

              yeah those things are still to intense for me @[email protected]
              thanks to everyone for the advices. ;__;

              @anaaga I’m not loving you back. lulz

            • Overcooled says:

              Yaoi is the best guilty pleasure there is, it’s worth a shot XD Your friend is kind of a jerk though, Gunny.

            • anaaga says:

              @kyokai: okane isn’t shotacon. the guy us in college. he’s just having a slow metabolism. or he just has a deformed body

              @Gunny: OMG HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO ME *wailing start rolling on the floor*

            • Kyokai says:

              Srsly, I ran away from that yaoi because it had this bullying a child feel. Urgh.

      • anaaga says:

        don’t listen to sassy. he watches hen zemi

  16. Renn says:

    Man, this is comprehensive. I can’t imagine the amount of time it took–it took forever just to read it. xD

    It’s cool to see everyone’s opinions on the shows. I can’t wait to see how your blogging schedule actually pans out. 😀

    • Overcooled says:

      There is a tiny fragment of all of our souls embedded in every sentence.

      I want to see how I can strategize blogging all shows I like the blogging schedule turns out too :3

      • Hime says:

        Looks like there will be fights over Deadman and Exorcist, everyone wants them.

        • sassy says:

          You guys can have it, as long as I’m doing Hen Zemi. hahahahahaha

          Oh and Hanasaku Iroha, hopefully that doesn’t isn’t a fail.

          • Overcooled says:

            I’m leaving all the slice of life things to everyone else, lol. Gonna have to be some bloodshed for certain titles though, Hime’s right. *cracks knuckles*

            • Ness says:

              Oh hell yeah, we’re gonna have a battle. Teeeheeee, exciting. There will be blood!!

      • Foshizzel says:

        LOL! our souls are in this post I like that 😛

      • MikADo says:

        underground battle for favorite post :3

        • Kyokai says:

          Not on my watch. Let’s do this peacefully. *stars speaking in a calming voice* “Please sit on your mats and breath deeply. Take the breath in and keep it inside for a while and then breath out…Follow after me~”

          *melee of punches and kicks ensue in the background*

  17. Foshizzel says:

    Awesome list everyone can’t wait to get a chance to see the first impressions! So many shows to look forward too lots of movies too.

    The list took a while to make, but great work on the post everyone played a important role 😀

    • Kyokai says:

      Our schedules will be a killer when Spring starts… Oh wait, Moshidora;s out already. We need subs.

    • MikADo says:

    • Ness says:

      I was going to wait for the Black Lagoon OVA to finish airing and watch in one go too but I was soooo bored and it was just sitting there.. staring at me… taunting me and saying my name. 😡

      School work and anime this season is going to be hard for me><;

      • MikADo says:

        i knwwww especially since the release dates are too far apart…. it soo hard to win the temptation

    • Foshizzel says:

      Gintama is awesome so random and funny 😀 😀

      Black Lagoon next few specials should be blooody and full of action!

      Deadman, Ao no Exorcist, Yozakura Quartet, All three look great! I only read Exorcist xD

    • BlackLagoon187 says:

      ugh I’m gonna have to make a list of which series to watch while airing and which ones to finish airing in order to marathon :S

  19. MikADo says:

      Shinryaku! Ika Musume Special

      K-ON!! Special

    • Captain says:


      • Foshizzel says:

        Lol Sounds good Captain xD

      • MikADo says:

        Gintama FESTIVALLLL

        • Captain says:


          • BlackLagoon187 says:

            Wurd,,, does screen share work when you do a group call in skype? Haven’t tried it out but if it does we can all do a big call and watch Gintama on someone’s screen xD

            • Foshizzel says:

              I watch stuff all the time with the sccsav group! We all DL our own copies and do a 1 2 3 countdown and hit play 😛

            • Kyokai says:

              Seeing on someone’s screen is hard. Best option is what Fosh is saying. We should definitely Gintama in a group. xD

            • MikADo says:

              thats a nice idea :3 i want to try that XD

            • BlackLagoon187 says:

              bahahah I’m down for that

            • Kyokai says:

              We’ll do a metanorn watch on a weekend and make an announcement for whoever wants to join in.

            • MikADo says:

              I hope I can match up the time right 😛

  20. amado says:

    il decide on which ones il watch but for now I need to finish the last2 eps of seikon no qwaser to watch this season.

    luckily, school is now finished so I have lots of time now.

    • amado says:

      meant decide later, im busy right now to read through all of it.

      • amado says:

        lots of shows but since school is done… well if im not too busy. none really that interesting though, maybe its because there is a lot of it this season.

        C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control – sounds and looks interesting. got some vibes of a possible great one.
        Ao no Exorcist – it has action, expecting pretty good ones and the guy is not a wimp.
        Seikon no Qwaser II – this one is actually pretty good, if you dont mind the fanservice.
        Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai II – though last season wasnt as good as I expected it, hopefully this one will be.
        Kampfer fur die Liebe – shizuku!
        Seitokai Yakuindomo OVA – it was hilarious. and contrary to what it looks, its not a harem.
        Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu – very hilarious. seems like the OVAs are following the manga, which they diverged in the anime.
        Sengoku Otome ~Momoiro Paradox~ – if its an all girls cast, chances of yuri are high.
        Denpa onna to Seishun Otoko – made by SHAFT so il give it a chance. and im getting some incestuous vibes.
        Deadman Wonderland – initially pass but heard the word yandere so il give it a go. as long as the yandere is either cute or hot.
        Hidan no Aria – like the art. hopefully the girl wont be a tsundere or at least not too dere or too tsun.

        • MikADo says:

          Is Seikon no Qwaser really good? i dropped after 1st episode so i dont really know :3

          • Captain says:

            Tit-sucking for power.
            Just saying.

            • Overcooled says:

              Seikon no Qwaser brings back bad, bad memories.
              Let’s just say I don’t recommend it.

            • Hato-kun says:

              I think I watched like, 8 episodes? I seriously cannot remember why, I just found it hilarious.

              Oh that’s right, Aya Hirano.

            • MikADo says:

              that’s the reason i asked :3

          • anaaga says:

            i find the whole chemistry power thingy to be interesting, but the way they got their power is just effin nasty *remember this certain episode* brb, gona go to church

            • amado says:

              yes thats what makes it interesting(aside from the breast sucking).
              I dont mind seeing those and the main character is pretty badass, he just uses his main power in diff ways to defeat the enemies instead of getting powers as the story goes on.

              its kinda like to aru majutsu no index, except darker, bloodier and ecchier. and the main character is cool and cold, something rare to find these days….

          • amado says:

            well if you like really bloody, dark, action, psychological with ecchi, then this is a really good series.
            at least the main character is not a wimpy one and doesnt just gain power boost when they’re in danger.

            oh and if you watch the censored version, you’ll miss those bloody scenes and ecchi moments. much better to watch the uncensored version.

            • MikADo says:

              hmm maybe i should get the censored version

            • amado says:

              if you watch censored, you will miss a lot of what happens.

              like you will keep on seeing the moon while someone is stabbed or being “sucked”.

            • baka_girl says:

              kinda want to watch it, but I don’t think I can watch that tit-sucking scene >,<
