Eva: Sign me up, I’m definitely interested in this- it sounds pretty badass.

Vantage: Post apocalyptic sci-fi is always a good thing. Not in love with the art style though.

Kaitou:  Creator of Space Pirate Captain Harlock, Space Battleship Yamato, Galaxy Express 999? WIN. I’m watching this. Not enough people watch old school stuff.

Genre: Action, Game
Airing Date:  April 2012
Summary: Second season of Phi Brain: Kami no Puzzle.
Trailer: PV 1,

Team’s Impression:

Eva: WHY IS THIS GETTING SECOND SEASON- WHY!?! WHY?! SERIOUSLY- WHAT’S SO GREAT ABOUT THIS SHOW?! COME ON-

ZeroG: I think I’ll kill someone, I could not finish the first season how much it was shit, why would anyone watch a second season of this boring piece of puzzle crap.

Vantage: Let’s just say this was one of the pre-decided second seasons, like how Blood-C was slated for a movie even before the fan hate and rage it so rightly deserves.

Kaitou:  Black Rock Shooter gets 8 episodes, and this show gets a second season. I would watch it for RookxKaito, but it’s not worth sitting through the terrible episodic adventures and kitschy villains. It’s OK for the puzzles, but that’s not an excuse to throw away character development and story.

Oki: lololol I just like to see Eva squirm over this XD

ZeroG: While Eva will be blogging this, I will watch it, the first season was already amazing, I simply cannot wait for the continuation of this amazing show.

Vantage: Gotta watch the first season, and maybe Fate/stay night before the first season.

Kaitou:  Not at the top of the list, but I’d watch it to keep up. I never watched Fate/Stay Night, but Fate/Zero season 1 was decent enough. Decent graphics, decent story, memorable characters, a little something for everyone.

Soon, Jin and his grandfather are attacked by a mysterious man who turns into a monster…
Trailer: PV 1, PV 2,

Team’s Impression:

Eva: The animation style looks different from what I’m used to, and it has all the ingredients for genres I like… except for the horror bit. I’m a bit unsettled about that in particular, so there’s no telling whether I’ll be checking this out or not.

ZeroG: This looks awesome, I’ll blog this if I have the opportunity to do so.

Vantage: I’ll give it a go – looks pretty amazing even though I’m not too sure what exactly it’s about.

Kaitou:  I’ve already read the manga, so it might be predictable…but then again, how is ZETMAN predictable? It’s a seinen anime about super heroes, lots of drama and ideology differences. DEATHNOTE fans, rejoice! I can’t wait to see the two titans clash, the animation looks gorgeous. BUT THAT’S SPOILERS. I wonder how much of the story they’ll manage in this season, and how they’re going to handle the violence. Σ(・∀・;)

Oki: This looks awesome but Kaitou shotgunned it so, tears. Tears of a thousand lifetimes.

Genre: Romance, School, Seinen
Airing Date:  April 2012
Summary: Wouldn’t you just love to poke in a relationship between two young high schoolers who have a subtle distance between each other? Of course you would. Tsumiki and Io have this subtle distance that anyone would want to jump in between just to bug them. That’s what the other characters are there for. Tsumiki, being a tsundere and all, won’t be honest about her feelings toward Io. Io on the other hand is unaware of Tsumiki’s feelings, hence the subtle distance between the two. Now, let’s watch these two and see what events await them…
Trailer: PV 1,

Team’s Impression:

Eva: Romcom count me in. Definitely something I’ll check out.

ZeroG: Meh, Romance, I’ll let the girls have their fun with that.

Vantage: This looks like a nice romcom to get into, complete with tsundere and all xD If there isn’t any progression though, I’ll just end up getting pissed at other people constantly poking into their relationship.

Kaitou: What anime doesn’t have it’s share of tsundere characters? I’ll try it. She looks so young though. =__=

Oki: Not a fan of the art style so I won’t be checking it out unless Vantage says it’s super good.

Team’s Impression:

Eva: This looks really good, I’m definitely curious about where this can go!

ZeroG: This looks boooooring, pass.

Vantage: I sense a lot of potential from this, not only from the setup, but also as a mystery series. Every season needs a good mystery to go with it.

Kaitou: Too many names. Pass. I’ll watch it if someone tells me that it’s good.

Oki: I’ll watch the first few episodes to see if I should rec it to my friends, but otherwise not interested.

Team’s Impression:

Eva: I was totally interested until I spotted Horror. I’ll stick to checking out the manga instead. I don’t need zombie nightmares.

ZeroG:  Ecchi, horror, comedy, supernatural ! Awesome ! I want to cover this now…now !

Vantage: Yes, ecchi, comedy and horror. Yes, it works. Somehow. Anyway, I loved what little there was of the manga, and it really brought a unique twist to the whole zombie concept. 

Kaitou: Ecchi and romance never mix well in my books. No interest.

Oki: It looks good but I don’t think I have the time to cover it unless it gets more interesting. I’ll give it a shot.

What is the secret that makes him so strong, and how will he help his high school team?
Trailer: PV 1,

Team’s Impression:

Eva: MINE. ALL MINE. YOU CANNOT TAKE THIS FROM ME. I read this manga like- I don’t know three-five years ago, but I recognized this in a heartbeat the minute I heard about this being green-lit. You can count on me covering this, and I won’t have to rant about the lack of ‘strong adaptions’ if it fails to do so since I barely remember what the hell happened except for the type of characters they are. UFF BASKETBALL- COME TO ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ZeroG: Sport, that is bad for my health, I’ll skip

Vantage: Sports! Been there, done that…failed.

Mysteriously, there is one person who can see her in ghost form: Niiya Teiichi, a freshman. Now they both seek to find out the reasoning behind her death, and what could have caused it.
Trailer: PV 1,

Team’s Impression:

Eva: I’ve actually read the manga, but I know for sure this is definitely something I will not be able to tolerate watching. *Shudders* If you like Another, you will probably enjoy this too.

ZeroG: Horror ! I love those, I might blog this, but I will watch it for sure.

Vantage: That summary reminded me of the anime movie Colorful, which also had a soul find out reasoning behind death. Anyway, these shows tend to have amazing plot twists, and are really interesting in general as well. Totally not going for this because of Yuyuko’s backstory from Touhou 07 Perfect Cherry Blossom.

Kaitou:  So much shonen romance. The supernatural aspect sounds promising.

Oki: It looks good and interesting but mystery shows and I don’t tend to mix well. I always want to know how the mystery ends and wait for it to finish before watching!

Hiiro no Kakera

Animation Company: Studio Deen
Website: http://www.ytv.co.jp/hiiro/ | http://www.hiironokakera.tv/
Genre: Action, Romance
Airing Date:  April 2012
Summary: The protagonist is a teenage girl (Tamaki) who revisits a small village, she remembers from her childhood and gets caught up in her family’s history and supernatural dangers surrounding it. While walking along the hillsides waiting for the person who her grandmother sent to fetch Tamaki to the village, Tamaki comes across a small, white round object with sticks for limbs and talks. It runs off soon after, with Tamaki chasing after it. Soon Tamaki finds herself in a place where ‘it doesn’t feel like the world I came from’. She gets attacked by three slime creatures, and a male comes charging in to save her – by clamping his hands around her body and mouth and telling her to be quiet.
Trailer: PV 1,

Team’s Impression:

Eva: Although it isn’t said here, it’s a real shame that the characters aren’t going to have the same seiyuus they had in the game. That alone is quite frustrating- especially to those who are fans of this game. Another thing is that after seeing the trailer, I find the character designs are absolutely HORRENDOUS much like Hakuouki’s Anime compared to the originals. Come on Studio Deen, you can do better than that!!!
Despite that said I’m really looking forward to this as this is one of the otome games I’ve been dying to play but can’t since I don’t understand the language. I’m counting on Studio Deen to do this properly  and execute as well as they did with Hakuouki.

There has been already three shotguns for this show. Therefore, it will be likely that there will be THREE of us covering this because we are ALL (except for Zero and Vantage- OBVIOUSLY) looking forward to this.

ZeroG: I might watch it, but I’m not sure if I’ll like it that much, I guess I’ll judge after the first episode air.

Vantage: *backs away slowly*

Kaitou:  …It looks like Studio Deen didn’t put as much weight into animation quality in this show. Hakuouki: Shinsengumi Kitan wasn’t bad for animation quality and voice acting (using the same actors as the games), but they switched them up for this anime. It’s not really a problem until they bring the game over here which is never, ever going to happen, sorry Eva, don’t kill me. No one can animate Yone Kazuki’s work! But I’m looking forward to it because it means a) more people becoming aware of otome games b) like Eva, I can’t read Japanese that well, so I’m willing to take this to see what the story is like. Someone post the Hakuoki: Reimeiroku PV already! @///A///@

Trailer: PV 1,

Team’s Impression:

Eva: I had just recently purchased Eureka Seven and decided to have a marathon for this. I also took a look at the manga- it looks fairly interesting. We’ll see if this will turn out as successful as Eureka Seven.

ZeroG: I’ve never watched any Eureka Seven, and I don’t think I’ll start just now.

Vantage: Er, either I go watch Eureka Seven at some point or just try this without any info from its prequel. ES was amazing though, I know that much.

Kaitou: Watching it, never seen EurekaSeven, so I might as well give it a shot. *slowly becoming more forgiving of the mecha genre*

Team’s Impression:

Eva: The odds of me watching this… highly unlikely.

ZeroG: What the hell is that, she is an assault rifle? She is not a shooter, she is a gun? What?

Vantage: So it’s like…Hidan no Aria, except without the Shakugan no Loli concept and more about shooting? Or girls, from that promo pic.

Kaitou: I’m surprised it’s not ecchi, considering the way that skirt is floating in the promo picture. I guess it’s a SOUL EATER with cute girls? @.@

Airing Date:  April 2012
Summary: Kurokami Medaka, a first year, is elected as Student Council President, and the first thing she does is establish a suggestion box, later dubbed by students the “Medaka Box”. Medaka encourages students to submit any problem to the box without hesitation and promises to take on any issue from anyone. Since Medaka won the Student Council elections with a staggering 98% of the vote, she ends up as the Council’s only member. She asks her childhood friend, Hitoyoshi Zenkichi, for help and he grudgingly agrees, becoming the Student Council’s lowest ranking member. Soon Medaka recruits two more people to the Student Council, the former judo club member Akune Kouki as secretary and the current swim club member Kikaijima Mogana, on loan for 300 yen a day, as treasurer. Now the Student Council members spend their days solving the problems submitted through the Medaka Box, whether they be hooligans in clubs where they don’t belong, girls who need help writing love letters or people who’ve lost their pets, gradually earning the respect and admiration of the entire school.

Trailer: PV 1,

Team’s Impression:

Eva: I will definitely check this out, but I can’t stay for sure whether it’s something I’ll be interested in blogging. I’ll leave that opportunity to the overs.

ZeroG: I’ll take a look at this, but only because there is the premise of huge boobs and naked virtual girl.

Vantage:  This looks like SKET Dance except much more unique. Nisio Isin (Monogatari series, Death Note) wrote this so that’s more than enough for me to look forward to it – I’d be interested in covering it too. Also Medaka has big boobs the art looks pretty ^_^

Kaitou: I, unfortunately, was so tired after reading the story premise that I’ll just chant along with Oki. *depressed*

In that moment, the lowest of the “school caste” becomes “Burst Linker”, a knight defending a princess.
Trailer: PV 1, PV 2, PV 3,

Team’s Impression:

Eva: Shotgunned by Vantage. I checked out the manga after he recommended it to me, it’s pretty darn awesome, and it’s something I’ll be looking forward to see animated as there’s a lot of action involved. Please don’t disappoint us, Sunrise.
Oh yeah and this also being released as a PSP/PS3 Game *O* THAT’S SO BADASS, ME WANT! *w*

ZeroG: That looks awesome, while Vantage will be the one covering it, I will watch this for sure.

Vantage: Mine! Back off. Amazing manga, amazing PV, what’s not to like? The main danger with this is whether Sunrise ruins it or not. The manga hardly gets anywhere with how little of it there is, so I’m actually really interested to see where this goes after the first few episodes since it’s a two-cour.

Kaitou: Everyone says it’s good. D: The first PV was transformation, the second PV a preview of the gaming environment. I’m probably one of the most anti-MMORPG type non-gamer out there, I get bored so fast with this stuff. And why is the guy drawn like that? >_<

Oki: This was already raped by Vantage and also I am tired of shounenesque seinen currently.

Team’s Impression:

Eva: I’ve never played the game, but this is a good opportunity to learn a bit about it.

ZeroG: I’m not even sure I would watch that if it was an ecchi…

Vantage: This sounds like the start of a plotline from Zelda, except it’s all mixed up and turned around.

Kaitou:  No, pass. Sounds anti-climactic.

Oki: The plot seems cliche and I’ll watch it, but unless the first episode leaves a real impression I won’t cover it.

AKB0048

Animation Company: Satelight
Website: http://akb0048.jp/
Genre: Music
Airing Date:  March 16, 2012
Summary: In the beginning of the 21st century, a world war breaks out over interplanetary travel tech. The environment is pretty much destroyed so mankind leaves Earth and starts Star Calendar 00. Entertainment and songs become heavily regulated and eventually banned due to their power to move people, but a brave idol group puts on guerrilla performances in the name of a famous act from earlier times that sang to Earth’s bitter end, AKB48. The illegal revival group’s name is… AKB0048.
Trailer: PV 1,

Team’s Impression:

Eva: … So let me get this straight: it’s a group of illegal group of singers who sang to the Earth’s Bitter End. That’s pretty badass, and considering this is Satelight doing the job, count me in.

ZeroG: I don’t like musicals, so no.

Vantage: Nothing will ever fill the idol slice-of-life gap left by The iDOLM@STER, but this series looks set to give it a good shot. Post-apocalyptic Earth setting is always nice too (apart from KyoSen, which was beyond confusing). I dunno…I’ll give it a try, but no guarantees.

Kaitou:  I know AKB48  is really popular and all, and I’m not in the target audience, but a television show? I won’t watch it. It seems almost a crime to, since I know it’s going to be sickly sweet  and damn moe. Pass.

Oki: Eh.

Trailer: PV 1, PV 2

Team’s Impression:

Eva: I’m surprised this isn’t a direct sequel of Saki. I’m familiar with Saki but I eventually dropped it because I grew bored of it. I’ll probably give this one a shot, but it’s pretty unlikely that I’ll cover it or continue watching it beyond three episodes.

ZeroG: As much as I love Chihayafuru, I don’t feel like watching another show about board/card game.

Vantage: Never ended up finishing Saki *stares at On-Hold list* Maybe in a few years time.

Kaitou:  …do you actually learn mahjong in this show? I might watch Saki for that, since I’m clueless about it. “OTZ But the fact that it’s yet another school story means I won’t be watching it.

Sentaro was infamous for getting into fights, skipping class and was an overall bad boy. Strangely enough, the three of them find common ground in music, namely jazz, and Kaoru finds himself actually enjoying the new town.

ZeroG: No way I’m watching a slice of life about music, the only thing missing is sport and I would puke just reading the title.

Vantage: I like Sphere’s music, but an anime with them as the seiyuu? Ah, four cute girls doing cute things again. I’ll wait for Yuru Yuri S2 in the summer.

Eva: Hahahaha, I tried Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream, and guess what? It was so ridiculous, the CG was so horrendous (and mind you right after the first two performances I SKIPPED EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM) that the only reason I kept on watching it up to Episode 20 was because I was bored out of my mind one day and before I knew it I was skimming the performances and everything. Oh and did I mention that the heroines have to listen for their clothes’ melody aka their clothes singing?!? Like hell I’d bother watching this and let alone cover it!

Overall Thoughts:

Eva: Looks like we have a strong season, but almost half of it are sequels, which isn’t a bad thing- especially for shows like Fate/Zero, holy shit. APRIL IS ALMOST HERE!!!! I’m going to be freaking out like crazy! And then we have a bunch of new shows and adaptions… I have a number of them that I’d LOVE to cover to the point I’m actually worried about whether I’ll be able to pull it off. Fate/Zero 2, Kuroko no Basuke, Hiiro no Kakera, Eureka Seven Ao, Accel World, Sakamichi no Apollon, Saint Seiya Omega, Jormungand are all shows I’m most looking forward to. That alone right there seven (excluding Accel World) I am/could possibly be covering and I still have to keep in mind that there will be three shows continuing from the Winter 2012 Season (Aquarion EVOL, Area no Kishi, Smile Precure!) that I will be covering. I know my limit is ten series, but at this rate, if these shows prove to be spectacular- I might actually push myself to twelve. *Shrugs* We’ll see.

ZeroG: A lot of great shows this season. While there are also many shows that I’m wondering what the hell they are about, most shows seems quite decent. It can be deceitful sometimes to judge book by their cover, but at the very least, we know that we have some good damn covers. I’m looking forward to cover those shows, there is so many horror and ecchi show for me to have fun with !

Vantage: I really wish I had more time to cover more series, since this season looks like it’ll churn out a lot of high quality stuff, as per usual for Spring seasons. My hopes are riding with Accel World and Tasogare Otome, as well as stuff like Zetman and Jormugand which pulls you in just from the synopsis. There’s always the hope that the shows that we know nothing about or look crappy turn out to be good too. Anyway, you gotta separate the gold from the sports shows trash, but your mileage will vary.

Kaitou: We waded through that much garbage for a handful of decent shows. I was surprised there was more than one sports anime, I guess it’s the season. The “weirder” shows are the only ones that really caught my eye, because all the other ones seemed like they’ve been done a million times before.  As long as Zetman doesn’t crap out and do a Claymore, I’ll be very, very happy this season. Even if I have to nibble on things like Hiiro no Kakera before the next season of Hakuouki’s PV drops, or watch Fate/Zero 2 as a dinner/common discussion anime. Same old, same old, just as dash of spice here and there.

Oki: A lot of stuff this season just seems completely in another field from me. Not to say the ideas aren’t creative, because they are. There is a lot of variety and that is always a good thing, and there are so many things I can’t even begin to claim there’s nothing good. There’s plenty of good stuff, so much so this season should have at least two shows for everyone. Lets hope the adaptations, like Mysterious Girlfriend X, and the originals too will be done well.
