what! the summer season didn't even start yet and it's out, i'm amazed. Took a quick glance, looks like it'll be a stacked fall season
Fate/Zero's definitely something I'm going to watch, I'm watching Fate/Stay Night for the first time and enjoying it a lot. The main characters I particularly care about are Shirou, Saber, Rin Tohsaka, Archer, Sakura, and the gothloli girl whose name I forget, so it would be nice if they're all present in the prequel (Though it's doubtful Shirou will be since he's just a normal kid about six years old), though I wouldn't mind if the cast was all new.
Tamayura's a bit saccharine, but I enjoyed the four OVAs quite a bit and am glad to see it get the upgrade to TV series. I hope the opening and closing songs are as good as they were for the OVAs, I loved both songs.
Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon looks cool, plan on checking that out. I like the art style and the cold, metallic feeling the preview picture in that chart gives off.
Science fiction isn't a genre that cranks out too many series I'm fond of, but Coppelion looks nice. The show has an interesting premise, and I have some fun with shows that take place in the future because I'm weird and enjoy thinking about how old I and the people I know might be during the story, or thinking about how different our lives might be by that time compared to the present.
I'm a big Shana fan, so Shakugan no Shana III is easily going to be one of the anime highlights of both 2011 and 2012 for me, especially since I get the impression that the later novels are fucking badass, more than worth the long wait between the second and third seasons (Well, not quite so long for me as those who watched the show while it was still being aired because I watched Shana for the first time early 2009, but that's still a decent wait).
Personas 3 and 4 are easily my two favorite RPGs, so there's no way I'm missing out on the anime rendition of Persona 4. (Though, to make a correction that I'm sure a million other people are going to point out to the guy who made this chart, the bulk of the story actually takes place during 2011.) Depending on when the series begins, if the anime is two cours the final battle on March 20th 2012 might coincide with the final episode's air date, which would be pretty cool.
Mirai Nikki's a no-brainer, I've never read the manga but I've always hoped that it would receive an anime adaptation some day. I like that Yuuko girl in the preview picture, she looks like a very gentle, kindhearted, easygoing girl.
I might watch Kimi to Boku, looks unremarkable but decent enough to kill some time.
The second season of Working! is the last confirmed Fall anime that I'm interested in. I enjoyed the first season, and this one will probably be better since it has the best character (Yamada) around from the beginning. :D
On the OVA side, I enjoy The World God Only Knows very much and Higurashi is one of my all-time favorite stories period. Infinite Stratos is mediocre, but meh, I'll probably watch it anyway.
The Fall 2011 season looks really good so far overall, and continues the time-honored tradition of Fall seasons always being the best.
I'm not surprised why no decent titles up there. That dreaded bill already in full effect by that time. Autumn has been always my favorite anime season since most of my favorite shows like Gundam 00, Clannad and Yosuga no Sora to name a few has been shown in Autumn but this Autumn release just sucked, except for Persona 4 and C3 perhaps.
Let's hope Persona 4 won't be sucked like Trinity Soul(Winter 2007/2008).
Fate/Zero, epic! And a shot at Shana III.
It can no longer be denied. 2011 is a wonderful year.
Well at least for me, who laughs at those in despair.
Fall season looking to be good. This list looks a tiny bit incomplete.
Will definitely check out:
Fate/Zero - YES, it'S NOT DEEN HOORAY! Looking to be the show to challenge Madoka and Steins;Gate for best this year.
Guilty Crown - Notamina block show demands an auto watch.
UN-GO - Same deal as above
Shakugan no Shana III - Please don't suck.
Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai!!! - If they don't flub the adaption, should be great.
I also may check out the following...
EDIT: I also expected the new Last Exile to be coming out this Fall or next Spring, but if it's this FALL , definitely going to be checking that out.
Isn't Haganai supposed to be airing this fall too?
Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai
Definitely needs to be more complete, but Fate/Zero alone makes it an amazing season.
Not to mention, the list left out Gundam AGE as well for those Gundam fans out there (whether they want to just makes jokes out of it or just watch it b/c it's Gundam).
Haganai - I've been waiting for this for awhile...
Gundam AGE - The story may turn out serious, but if not, I'm so using this as something to joke on...
Ika II - Duh...
Working 2 - Duh...
Fate/Zero - Just b/c it's Fate/... series...
Shana III - Time to go back to first 2 seasons...been a LONG time
Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon - Will probably read the novel before I really decide whether I'll watch it or not
Tamayura - From summary sounds like those high-school slice of life (Which I usually watch just for the sake of it...), but I heard the OAV was boring, though
Guilty Crown - Just maybe...(Doubtful, though, with so many series already up on "Will watch" list...)
Too early to worry about what I'll blog for fall, but Mirai Nikki is a no-brainer despite nothing terribly exciting in the staff and cast. The manga is absolutely stellar.
Hopefully Seitokai no Ichizon and Shinryaku Ika Musume will be fall series. I believe Working! has been confirmed for fall as well.
Chihayafuyu: A serious shoujo show about ambitious girl? If it is then count me in, at least for first few episodes.
Let's hope Mirai Nikki ended like its manga, yes I'm trolling School Days fans.
Shakugan no Shana III - Please don't mess this up J.C. Staff
Mirai Nikki - Manga alone is getting me to try this out
Fate/Zero - Obvious choice for me :heh:
Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai!!! - Going to give the anime a shot.
Everything else :heh:
It's a bit hard to have "expectations and anticipations" around an incomplete chart that skips over a season that hasn't even begun to air. Now if we were closer to the end of the Summer season, then this thread might make more sense. Information would be more accurate and official. Too much can change between the end of the Spring season and the beginning of the Fall season.
I'll definitely be watching Mirai Nikki for sure. I currently have the 10 volumes and are praying the rest will be released. I'll also have Bakuman, Working!! 2, and Mobile Suit Gundam AGE, on my watch list as well as other ongoing series. There are others that look pretty promising like Kyoukai Senjou No Horizon, Guilty Crown, and C³.
Tamayura ~Hitotose~: I liked the OVA series, so I'll be coming back for the series for more.
Bakuman 2: despite the first season starting out badly, it managed to pick up mid way through and finally got better by the end. Plus the season will have the character I've been waiting since the anime was announced lol.
Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon: An adaption of a door stopper series of novels, this sees an annoying looking group of people return to earth. Might check for the first couple of episodes, but nothing from the PV's had drawn me in so far.
Mobile Suit Gundam AGE: Ah Gundam. The director is pretty experienced in the franchise, but Level 5 ... they make some fun games, but the story is just ... well at least this is huge move for them I guess? The character designs don't really look all that great, and the main Gundam is as plain as you can get, but the story potential is very strong here. 3 protagonists, century span storyline, and new direction for the franchise. Could end up being G Gundam reborn.
Shinryaku!? Ika Musume: Loved the first season, but the directorial change ... I will never forgive the Valkyria Chronicles adaption T_T
Fate/Zero: pretty much an ensemble staff here, and could be the anime where the majority of the hype will be at in the season, since it's Type-moon (and has been getting a lot of hype going as is since it's announcement) Yuki Kajiura (meaning it will have a phenomenal soundtrack, though it reamins to be seen if it's used well) Ei Aoki (after Ga-Rei: Zero and Hourou Musuko, the man is a personal favorite of mine, and can direct a good action anime without compromising on the emotional aspect of the show) ufotable (sakuga heaven) and the source material is pretty good from what I've heard. Also, it's not Deen, so that's always a plus.
Just one tiny small problem though ...
There is still no writer. Like, what the hell? Why wouldn't they announce who is composing the anime already?
Shana III: The other widely anticipated show this season, this had already been set for being the final season for a while now with all the OVA's they had been releasing and the novels coming to an end. I will check it out, since I liked the past two seasons more or less.
Coppelion: interesting premise
UnkoUn-Go: proof that Nintendo isn't the only one in the land of the rising sun who can come up with stupid names.
Guilty Crown: The producer of notaminA, having concluded that he needs to sacrifice something in order to gain another, he gathered all the DVD/BD of previous notaminA and placed them all in one building. Afterwards, he set the entire building on fire, and walked in. When he came out, this was stuck to his nibble. He decided then to have the guy who directed an anime about bullets passing through boobs and laser pens to helm it. Much tears ensued.
At the very least, this is heading to be pretty looking. Very pretty looking, going by the concept art, the character designer, and the studio. The story though ...
Lupin III: can't go wrong with the classics right?
Phi Brain: I like the concept, and it's sunrise so it gets a pass with me.
Other wise, this is looking like its shaping like a great season. 2011 is going to end with a bang.
I mean we have about 20 titles aside from the Movies + OVA's already set to air in the Fall, many of which are long awaited shows. As for the information, much like every thread prior, we'll end up getting a clearer picture once we come closer to the airing date, but we do have enough info atm to make a general impression of the season and the shows airing. Change is expected, but that doesn't make the info released now useless.
Well just looking at the list of anime that will be airing in Fall is enough to hype me to the max. Can't wait till October, if it wasn't for the fact that my exams are in November. -_-
I feel like I'll end up watching almost everything. I'm not picky and don't care much for depth in anime anyway. I watch it for fun.
Guilty Crown - It's noitaminA so obviously, and I love the character designs
Tamayura - Relaxing
Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon - Sounds interesting
C3 - I like Silver Link, and torture.
Phi Brain - I also love puzzles, this might be interesting.
Shakugan no Shana III - Of course I'll watch sequels of shows I like
Persona 4 - Looks very interesting even though I've never played Persona (don't have a PlayStation at all) and I like most of Kishi Seiji's works.
Mirai Nikki - Yandere girl is always good, and I like these kinds of psychological shows
Un-Go - Willing to give it a go, only because it's also noitaminA
Maji de Watashi ni Koishinasai! - My No.1 most anticipated show because I love the VN even though I've only played 2 routes, and Kamiya Hiroshi is voicing the protagonist, though I have a feeling it won't do so well
Kimi to Boku - I'd like to see how a Lucky Star with guys will turn out.
Working!! 2 - First season was quite good
Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai - Love the manga, hilarious, and I wanna hear Hanazawa Kana voice Kobato lols
Shinryaku! Ika Musume - Liked the first season
Mildly interested in everything else. Have a feeling this season will be the best season ever.
My expectations are like for the start of every season, zero. I will watch and see which shows I like and which I don't.
Is very weird, is what I'm saying. (and slightly worrisome)
