But here it is, the winter anime season predictions! I'll talk a bit about what I expect out of the four shows YOU have chosen for me. That's right, the poll on my sidebar is now my future. I'm kind of nervous. Here are a few words about what I expect out of whatever it is I've committed to for the next few months.
#1: NoragamiPremiere date: January 6th
This is a show coming from Bones, who also produced both FMA animes, so I'm having some hope that it will be good. I like the supernatural theme, and anichart.net tagged it with the genres action, adventure, and shounen, which has previously proven to be exactly my kind of thing. So yeah, I'm excited.
Premiere date: January 16th
Another supernatural themed anime, this time mixed with comedy, which can be interesting.
I'm not a big comedy fan when it comes to anime, but I'll give it a shot. I just hope this one
doesn't get too repetitive or boring. There's the chance that it will turn into a romance anime,
which I haven't had the best experience with in the past, but we'll see.
Premiere date: January 11th.
Reading the description, I just went "ugh" in my head. It's not that I don't like romance, or love triangles, quite the opposite actually, but while I adore these in, say things like, tv shows or musicals, anime has yet to provide me with a good enough romance show to make it to my top 10. Also when I first saw the artwork I thought it reminded me too much of High School of the Dead *shudder*. So maybe that's why I'm sceptical about this. But who knows, maybe this will be the show to change my mind about romance anime? I don't know, but I'll try to go into it with a neutral mind.
#4: NourinPremiere date: January 11th.
Why so many romance shows guys? But seriously though, this is actually one I wanted to watch from the beginning. From the description it looks like something a 14 year old fangirl would've written (me included), because who wouldn't want to become friends, or something more, with their biggest idol? Also this comes from the producer of Steins;Gate, which is a good omen. I'm just afraid I have too high expectations and get disappointed. We'll see.
#5: Wake Up, Girls!Premiere date: January 11th
The first time I read the description, I didn't find it interesting at all, but now I'm a bit more curious. If it's a show about music, I really hope it will deliver well. I'm imagining like a j-pop musical here but I might be wrong about that. Still, that would be so cool. But it might also just end up a regular anime about someone trying to keep their head (or in this case, company) over water.
So, while I have no idea how I'm going to find the time to watch all of these at the same time,
as well as the usual shows and maratons of anime I do on a regular basis, I'm sure I'll find a way.
It's all about time management, right? A majority of these seem to be only 10-12 episodes long,
so that will hopefully be alright. I can't imagine myself stumbling upon another show with the
SnK-effect, and having to go through that same torture again.
With that being said, I still want to know which shows you guys are planning to follow this
coming season, and why!
I'll be sure to share my first reactions when the time comes, and I have something extra special
planned to move my internet-id a step forward. So look forward to that (; Until next time!
