So to be frank I didn't really have that much enthusiasm for this preview like I usually did before, but going through the chart/preview with the 'editor' helps I guess, as we end up poking fun here and there for the lolz, and I was like, 'this will make a good post!' and also spazzing like no other at some of them so yeah, one thing lead to another I guess.
As usual, I'll still do the verdict, as there's still chances of me catching some shows or another because Spring seems to bring some good shows indeed
For convenience sake
- Kiddie shows (because it'll make me repeat the comments and that's boring, unless I can find something to say)
- Card games (because it make me woe at all the potential but I'll never watch it because OMG CARD GAMES WHY)
- Sequels in which I'm yet to watch the prequel of (because the chances of me watching them will be 0)
- Shorts like all those 5-minute comedy gag trend (refer to the ones on kiddie shows above)
Tl;dr I made a summary of list on the verdicts at the end of the review minus the ones I'm not watching.
Lupin is still my jam at times) but I swear I did NOT see this coming. But then they are relevant enough in Japan now and whoever come up with this idea is a genius; marketing-wise. Sure, this might fall in the niche category and may seem catered for their fans, but there are chances of people giving it a try and exposing the group to a bigger audience, so yeah, it's a win-win situation. The girls will be the seiyuu to their own characters and naturally, provide the opening and ending song. Now, if only I can totally be sure of that Dongwoo Animation (I legit O_o at that); though some sources named a different studio altogether lol.
Verdict: Might check it out, it's just 5 episodes anyways. （￣ー￣）
Verdict: Watching! Ｏ(≧∇≦)Ｏ
My youth romantic comedy is wrong as I expected is a, well, rom-com (duh) and while the main guy doesn't sound as boring, it doesn't mean he is unique either. And of course the school's prettiest girl has to get involved somehow, and so their journey begins! ...or not. You see, me and rom-com rarely gets along, and this has the 'been there done that' vibe, so yeah.
Verdict: Not watching. ヽ(ー_ー )ノ

Lost in America (the 2nd anime blog I often browse true after Random Curiosity) and a brief skim through confirms the josei part. And well, that basically seals it.

RC's preview strikes me so much (I think it's the 2nd after THE anime above) that I have it in the must watch list after a brief read of the synopsis. I'm not familiar with the game this is based from, and the summoning demons part can be a bit cheesy (though I survived the cheesy-fest that is Persona 4 The Animation weekly no less) but for some reason this really pulls at me so yeah, I'll be watching- wait, it's Kamiya Hiroshi-sama. Make it definitely watching. (I swear you want to brick me by now for being such a fangirl, hohoho~)
Verdict: Watching. （人´∀`*）
Verdict: Not watching. (・_・ヾ
Verdict: Not watching. (゜-゜)
Verdict: Not watching. (ノД`)・゜・。
the promo picture at RC's better if only because the image of the mecha is clearer. I already state my case with mecha anime in general above, so there's no repeating there but really, even I know this is ridiculous but I was staring at the mecha when suddenly the image of cyclops pops in my head. I mean there's a yellow kind of a laser (?) at the eyes so this is a cyclops mecha! Like whoaaa! And my sister likes it so much she can't take this seriously anymore ha! Sorry, Sunrise.
Verdict: Not watching. （￣～￣;）
Verdict: Watching. °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°
Verdict: Watching. (´ω｀★)
Verdict: Watching. ヽ(*≧ω≦)ﾉ
Verdict: Maybe. It all comes down to the bugs. MASSIVE BUGS OMGGGG. （／．＼）
And that's it! For info on OVA or movies check out the original chart
So copying from my last season preview post (har har) my watching list for the season (because I change my mind depends on my level of procrastinating with them and also the space available in my HD orz) might be something like this;
The YOU-HAVE-TO-WATCH-THIS a.k.a DEFINITELY WATCHING list:
01-Shingeki no Kyojin (a.k.a THE anime of this season)
03-Otona Joshi no Anime Time
04-Ketsuekigata-kun (har har)
05-Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2199
06-Devil Survivor 2 The Animation
07-Suisei no Gargantia
08-Asian Risshiden no Shima Kousaku
09-Aku no Hana
The will-download-and-watch/see-from-there a.k.a watching/dropped-if-it-doesn't-grab-me list:
01-Kara The Animation
02-RDG Red Data Girl
The on-the-fence-and-maybe list:
01-Glass no Kamen Desu ga
03-Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge
So there's 16 series altogether, with 9 on the definitely watching list
Perhaps I'll go and continue downloading Shirokuma Cafe for the kicks. Or maybe because I might need it.
Oh well, here's hoping it will all be good! Excited! \O/
