07-Ghost - i'm not a yaoi fangirl, and there's hardly any in the manga and this is one of my favorite series >///<
K-ON - This looks fun! Plus KyoAni is amazing!
Pandora Hearts - Love the idea, and the manga is pretty good so far.
Eden of the East - I can't wait 'til this airs!
Asura Cryin - I like the whole childhood friend/ghost plot :3
Might be Watching

I'm going to be checking out at least the first episodes of Natsu No Arashi, Eden of The East, and Shangri-la. I expect I'll end up watching one-two of them, definitely the SHAFT show. And of course, I also highly anticipate The Tale Of Genj being fansubbed someday.

Top Five List must to watch
1)Full Metal Alchemist 2 (since I didn't like the 1st season since it's stray away from the manga)
2)Dragon Ball Kai (no filler and better quality, I expect it better than the JUMP Dragon Ball Z special episode last year)
3)Hatsukoi Limited (The male protagonist is well.. I hope it's something new compared to other type of this anime)
4)Shangri-la (Will this be GONZO's redemption?)
5)Still hoping that Melancholy Season 2 would suddenly pops out of nowhere at the end of final episode in Melancholy of Haruhi-chan that would be my no.5

Saber's Husband XD
For the sequels Hayate no Gotoku is my #1 pick...
for the new ones...
Full Metal Alchemist ~ it's not a sequel rather a remake so I will try if this one will be better than the epic 1st show...
Tears to Tiara ~ don't know... just riding up in its popularity I think...
Pandora Hearts ~ hmmmm just curious ^^
Winter Sonata ~ I watched the Korean Soap Opera and I could say it is nice.... don't know about the anime adaptation that's why I want to check out this one....

Here's my five series that I will be looking into this season:
1) Fullmetal Alchemist - This one was a no-brainer for me. The original anime is #2 on my Top 5 list and with this remake being touted as more faithful to the manga story, which I love, it went right to the top. I really dig the new character designs too.
2) Shin Mazinger Shougeki! Z-Hen - I've been in need of some hot-blooded mecha action after finishing Clannad and Toradora! and this looks like it'll scratch that itch just fine. The retro-style artwork is also a big plus in my book.
3) Dragon Ball Kai - Mostly a curiosity pick for myself. I'll drop it quickly if it disappoints, but the prospect of this being "DBZ done right" intrigues me.
4) Tears to Tiara - Sounds like it has an interesting premise, character designs are nice-looking and there's at least a couple of familiar names among the seiyuu cast. I'll reserve judgment on it until I've gotten a few episodes under my belt.
5) Pandora Hearts - Like Tears, interesting premise. Character designs are a little meh at the moment, but I'll give it a chance.

Anyone who calls themselves a mecha fan must watch Shin Mazinger Z, its the original mecha anime that created the mecha genre.
The old Mazinger Z anime was an adaptation of the manga that doesn't follow it completely. But this Shin Mazinger Z, Shin meaning True, follows the original manga truthfully, providing a darker story than its original anime that was targeted mostly at kids.
If one who calls himself a mecha fan can't relate to Mazinger Z, then he will never be a true mecha fan.

I don't see too much for me this season, but there are a couple of things that could cheer me up:
Eden of the East: An interesting premise, and Production IG behind it, which is almost enough to make me watch it.
Sengoku Basara: I don't know if I'm going to be too thrilled to watch it, but since it already appears to be not too serious, and Production IG is behind it, I might give it a spin.
K-ON: Kyoto Animation already failed pretty terribly in my eyes with a 4-koma adaptation, but this time the premise seems a bit more interesting. I hope they go for the Azumanga Daioh approach rather than the let's-throw-in-randomness-and-then-a-Haruhi-ad approach like with Lucky Star.
Natsu no Arashi: It's been a long time since I've ever watched a SHAFT+Shinbo combo, seeing how I haven't finished through Hidamari Sketch x365 yet, so I'm kinda excited for this.
Ristorante Paradiso: Extremely puzzled by this. The character design already indicates a more mature approach at telling a rather simple story, but I'm really hoping it'll turn out to be good. Also, Orikasa Fumiko is doing the main character.
FMA: A 4-cour remake, huh. I expected better of you, Bones. But still, it's my favorite studio remaking a not so great (but not so bad either) series. Here's to it being worth my time, and doing it better than the original FMA.
I'd really love to watch Shangri-La based on that bit of sample art, but the near-financial-death Gonzo is behind it and I fear for the worst.
Well, that's it. Only six series I'm interested in, and the rest looks pretty... meh. 90% of the rest looks completely generic, and the rest is things that probably wouldn't cater to my tastes (like Chi's Sweet Home--Side note: Why aren't you making anything other than that this season, Madhouse? ). There's still the Ichigo Mashimaro and Spice Wolf OVAs, so it's not _too_ bad.
Also, Gonzo making three series, lol.
EDIT: After reading up a bit on the story, I might add Phantom to the list. Keep in mind that I'm not a fan of Bee Train at all.

Has only watched K-on and 1st Ep is awesome so far.
I will also try Valkyria Chronicles, Full Metal Alchemist 2( this one is definitely), Shangri-la, Saki, and maybe Natsu no Arashi (just rewatched SR2 by chance, and realise it will be hard to recorver)

Of the premieres I've watched this spring, I would judge Pandora Hearts the best based on the first episode. It was the most fully realized introduction to characters and story. But I'm also keeping an eye on:
Sengoku Basara - Horses with tailpipes, swords, I.G., Wakamoto-sama chewing scenery as Oda Nobunaga. Honestly, any male not watching this should put his 'nads in cold storage.
Asura Cryin' - A mess of a 1st episode, but interesting premise.
Basquash - Sometimes you don't want to think about what you're watching.
Cross Game - Off to a great start. I love baseball manga that really aren't about baseball.
Natsu no Arashi - Maybe the one anime of all this spring that has the potential to go either way. Lots of fascinating oddity here, with the SHAFT influence and madcap story, but the first ep felt somewhat deflated. We'll see.
07 Ghost - I liked the poster at TAF.
FMA II - It's FMA. You have to give it a shot.

I've only actually watched 2 things, but so far I'm interested enough to download:
-Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~
-Chi's New Address
-Eden of the East
-Hatsukoi Gentei (maybe)
-07 Ghost (maybe)
I've watched Basquash and Pandora Hearts' first episodes and loved them.
