Am I allowed to say none of them really interest me as of right now? If I knew anything about Rinne no Lagrange I might be able to say that piques my interest, but all I know is that it's sci-fi and I tend to like sci-fi.

Well like always, Summer/Winter is filled with fodder and maybe 1-2 hit that became bigger than what it is because other title is too weak.

That doesn't seem to be the case this winter, that's just Kaioshin's taste. We have BRS, Another, and Nise confirmed for winter along with a lot of other stuff that was announced previously that will probably air in Winter. It's already looking better than the past 3 years.

Yeah it's still way to early to call anything. This is obviously just what's been announced so as always it's wait for more info time.

By the way, I wonder if I'm still the only one that gets a kick out of the fact that Nisemonogatari basically translates as Fake/False/Phony Adventure Story and that everytime everyone says Nise they're essentially saying fake or phony. It definitely gives an amusing flavor when used in primarily English sentences. :heh:

It not even Autumn yet and the list still incomplete.

Xacual 2011-09-16 18:22

I've said it before but we don't need these topics 3 and a half months in advance. Maybe a month to two months but not before the preceding season even starts.

My thoughts exactly.

Well I'm not commenting about this winter list, but more about situation that usually happened in Summer/Winter (Hell, even this summer is total borefest aside MPD and maybe iM@S in hyped show)

And yeah usually there's big time seller like Bake (might happened again with Nise), Strike Witches, IS etc happened in Summer/Winter because of that, the other title is too weak to complete n the sales for the big hits is even bigger because people don't have too many thing to spend. I'm predicting this winter is only about Nise and one-two other title.

Reading that funny premise, followed by Kaishin Sama's reaction, made me split my sides laughing. :heh:

I agree with Xacual that this thread is too early, especially with a lot of titles yet to be revealed. Since this thread is already here, I'll just hook in and briefly mention what I anticipate seeing at the moment:

Milky Holmes
Saw the first season. This has a lot of potential to be good, in my opinion, especially if they stay true to the insane style of the first season.

Nisemonogatari
More motor mouths!

Black Rock Shooter
Could be good.

Another
Mostly because of the Ito Noizi art style, admittedly.

Kore wa Zombie Desu ka
Saw the first season. I don't anticipate this one not as much as the other series, but if people like it, I'll try it.

White Manju Bun 2011-09-16 20:06

Agreeing thread is too early. Will reopen when more info on Winter season is out.

Closed for now.
