It is that time where, with the current season beginning to wind down that we begin to look ahead to the next season, although I am looking at it significantly later than many others seem to do. As per usual this season preview wont be definitive since there are always series I’m just not even remotely interested in. It will also be based off of whatever information I can find except for the preview trailers since I have never trusted those to tell me anything useful about any anime series. Trailers simply show the bits that the studio think will sell the series rather than give any real indication as to what the series will actually be about, and as such I don’t believe in watching them. There are quite a few particularly interesting series next season, including a number of sequels and a few light novel adaptations that look to be potentially fascinating. I have to say that there seems to be a nice mix of series next season, ranging from your normal slice-of-life and slapstick series, through to the harem anime and the more serious, perhaps psychological series.  Read more of this post

The slightly Illogical Autumn 2012 season preview


So it appears to be that time when many anime bloggers start to look forward to the new season, to see what looks interesting, or to simply rip into anime as a whole with an immense sense of superiority. I tend not to look too far ahead when it comes to anime, and for the most part concentrate on the current season rather than look at anime that have yet to air. Also, I never watch previews, they tell you very little about the series, providing a few sound bites and a look at the animation style without really giving any indication as to what the anime will really be about. As such my previews don’t contain them and I don’t even bother with them, instead I see what other information is available and generally make up my mind based on the plot overview and artwork. Having had a look at the line-up for next season it does look to be potentially very interesting. As with all anime seasons there is a plethora of anime on show, ranging from the classic romance/shoujo series, through the light novel adaptations to the (usually) over-hyped anime that never quite turn out to be as good as everyone suggests they should be. Overall the season has quite a varied lineup, with may different genres included, something that is always nice to see in an anime season. There are some potentially very nice romance series which will obviously go down well with me as a fan of a good romance, along with numerous sequels to some more recent, along with slightly older series.

This list is in no particular order, and barring a couple of series that I honestly dont like the look of I will at least have a look at everything listed, whether I finish the anime is another matter entirely. Read more of this post

The Less than Definitive Illogical Summer 2012 Season Preview


The summer season has traditionally been one that many pass over, with numerous people dismissing it as full of terrible series, Interestingly enough it has also been the season that I tend to enjoy the most. While it may not have those big series that get a lot of attention and hype, it has always been a season where I find I can sit back and relax while watching numerous entertaining and enjoyable anime series. This summer season has numerous Light Novel, Visual Novel and PC game adaptations, all of which get mixed reactions ranging from massive overhype to those who dismiss them as fluff and pointless. Now, over the last few years I have grown to quite enjoy Light Novel and Visual Novel adaptations, finding them interesting to watch. Read more of this post

The list of anime in the Spring 2012 line-up is pretty varied, and there are those shows that I either don’t care about or are entirely indifferent too. So, here’s a list of the shows that I will be watching, and possibly a few that I wont.

Winter 2012 Preview: The Good, The Bad and the Mundane


So

This has nothing to do with the Winter 2012 season, but I needed a picture for this space.

The Autumn 2011 season has finally finished, with a few shows continuing into next season, the majority have concluded and of were largely enjoyable. Soon the winter 2012 season will start with high school romance, space pirates, devils in mini skirts, giant robots, random nonsense and 4-kome gag shows. I will not be watching everything, but there are certainly shows that have piqued my interest, although I am not writing about them in any particular order.
