Winter 2012 – What Anime You Should and Shouldn’t Watch Because I Said So.

Hello everyone, in order to keep up with the times. I’ve decided to look into the upcoming anime winter list. I wish to provide my unbiased opinion, accompanied by a collection of PVs to make things easier for my dear readers. We’ve got an amazing line up next year and I hope you’re just as hyped up as I am!


I watched this and had no idea what was going on. But who cares right? That just means I’m not hipster enough to get this shit. It’d be nice to get 11 episodes of this though.

Recorder to Randoseru a.k.a A Loli that isn’t a Loli and a Shota that isn’t a Shota 

Welp. It’s like they’re not even trying.

Poyopoyo Kansatsu Nikki

It’s an anime about a cat. Of course I’m watching this! I fucking love cats! What do you mean by “Are you being sarcastic?” I’m taking care of two dogs.

Daily Lives of Highschool Boys

THIS WILL BE THE BEST SHOW THIS WINTER AND YOU SHOULD WATCH IT. You people need the reassurance from people who actually get comments on their blog. Here’s Scamp’s post on the first few pre-aired episodes. Finally, Guilty Crown gets a rival for best comedy.

Black Rock Shooter

There’s supposed to be a star in that title but screw that. I recall watching the OVA and wondering if it actually had a plot. Not that figuring out what was going on would make it any less boring…

Amagami SS+ plus

Haremshit. Okay, some of you might actually like this show. Sorry. It’s not like I’ve actually seen it. I just wanted to say haremshit.

Natsume Yuujinchou Shi

This series is bound to have a couple of episodes that’ll make me cry. I approach Natsume differently from most anime, it’s something I watch when I want to relax. This isn’t the kind of series I’d marathon, it fits somewhere in between all the other shows I watch and since the quality of story telling is consistent, its understandable why people love this show so much.

New Prince of Tennis

This is gay.

Tantei Opera Milky Holmes II

I heard this was funny. But like Ika Musume, I have no desire to watch it. I prefer shows like Gyagu Manga Biyori and Detroit Metal City with a dash of Gintama. In short, I like dick jokes and fart jokes. No one in Tantei Opera Milky Holmes appears to have a dick, or am I wrong?

Zero no Tsukaima F

It has an ‘F’ in the title. Is this the 6th installment? Who needs that many seasons? And why is her slit so high? Isn’t she supposed to be a nun? What?

Mouretsu Pirates

Captain Harlock goes moe!

Inu x Boku SS

What is up with the SS in the title? I read a chapter of the manga and I can safely predict that the  main girl is going to be all ‘B-Baka! Leave me alone! Also, allow me to act like a bitch around you!’ and the main guy is going to be all ‘You are my master! Allow me to be your faithful servant forever and bleed excessive amounts of blood for your sake so we can have forced drama tiemz.’ I did like David Production’s work on Level E (the manga is waaaaay better though) and Ben-To is decent comedy. But I’m not expecting anything amazing. I’m starting to think Level E was a fluke.

Papa no Iu Koto o Kikinasai!

DAT EXCLAMATION POINT. It’s like every otaku’s wet dream. ‘Romantic comedy’ my ass.


I’m lost. I don’t know what to expect from Brave10. It could be pretty entertaining, or it could be about good looking men with swords doing cute things  or perhaps it’ll focus on some faux ‘political conspiracy’. Who knows? A bit of a wildcard.

Rinne no Lagrange

They used a meme generator for this anime’s plotline.

Senhime Zesshou Symphogear

I’m not sure what to say. I mean, I sort of heard of a similar premise in a Precure series. Meh.


I wasn’t blown away by Bakemonogatari but hey, I do like Shinbou’s visual style.


Another is being directed by the same man behind the amazing Blood-C. While I admit, part of Blood-C’s horrid quality comes from CLAMP. I’m not sure if Mizushima actually understands why people were disappointed. I’m pretty sure he doesn’t have a clear understanding what suspense is. If the PVs are any indication– No Mizushima, you don’t put in creepy music and film grain achieve suspense. There’s still potential in this though.

Kill Me Baby

Yeah. It looks like this show has one running joke about an adolescent girl being hurt by another adolescent girl. COMEDY GOLD GAIZ.

High School DxD

If this harem doesn’t have a trap then it’s shit. Who am I kidding? It’d still have a trap and stay shit.

Ano Natsu de Matteru

Oh look! It’s set in the summer, filled with beautiful landscapes and a generic looking protagonist with a camera! We even have an upbeat song sung in the background. I’m pretty sure people are going to love this and I’m predicting tons of MISUNDERSTANDINGS. Because let’s be honest, romance in anime requires people jumping into conclusions and feeling sorry for themselves.


I can’t see this anime not having lesbians because…why else would people watch it?

Aquarion EVOL

Love triangles were cool, but that was a long time ago.

Yeah. We’ve got an pretty underwhelming list but hey, this season might up better than Fall 2011 hahaha!

  1. I don’t believe Milky Holmes shows any dicks. There’s just a lot of nipples…. from a dude.

  2. are we counting Fate Zero part 2 as next season?

  3. Hmm… doesn’t look too promising. I guess I’ll hope Another turns out really good. At least I still have two shows continuing on from Fall ’11 (HxH and Chihayafuru). Also: Thermae Romae!

    • Uhuh, I’m actually just watching HxH and Mirai Nikki but Thermae Romae should be good, it actually does something with Flash unlike the other flash animated shows I’ve seen. Looking forward to those three episodes!

  4. The PV for high school boys was great, judging by the title it sounds like it will be the most unoriginal thing ever which is a shame because the PV made me laugh.

    The PV for Another was good awful but the story sounds good in words so here is hoping it turns out good.

    I got my hands on Kyousogiga the other day but I am yet to watch it, the first 10 seconds look very hipster.

  5. Short and to the point
    How lovely

  6. This is a filler season.

  7. Well that depends on if you thought Level E was actually any good. I thought it had potential, but fizzled in the middle.

    Anyways, I’ll say this: the Winter season may look like crap. But I bet you there will be a few surprises in store. At least, more than the Fall season!

    • Well that depends on if you thought Level E was actually any good. I thought it had potential, but fizzled in the middle.

      I thought it was genius. It’s my favorite show of the year.

      Well every season looks like crap until it actually starts. Not that Fall was awesome, it kind of sucks but last winter we had Madoka and Level E. Never saw Hourou Musuko but I’m sure that was pretty good too.

  8. These are legitimately THE BEST reviews/ Summaries I have ever read.
    You manage to tell me whats it’s about and if it’s worth a watch in nearly one line of text. You are a god at this.
