Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Season 2: Truth be told, I didn’t find the first season to be the crowning achievement in anime, but since we all know KyoAni SAVES ANIME like Jesus Christ saves pedophiles, the pre-air hype will no doubt reach its highest levels of delusional since the last K-ON! season. Hold on to your butts.
Saki Zenkoku-hen: So let me get this straignt, Achiga Girls used to be the renegades of funk, then they lost, then they regrouped under Shizuno, then fatbags left, and now that we’ve caught up to the first season of Saki, she is GETTING THE BAND BACK TOGETHER? Okay. I guess.
Gin no Saji Season 2: My wife always likes to tell me about her time in vo-ag during high school where she watched animals get slaughtered and learned about farming. I sure enjoy eating animals, but the gory details are better left to those with the eyes for them. This show however, had an excellent first season, and I will certainly welcome another.

I Will DL and Have a Look
Seitokai Yakuindomo Season 2: I actually liked Seitokai, despite it being a bit dry. But at a time with so many Student Council-themed shows, it was presented more as an appetizer than a main course. With less competition of its genre this time around, it could be good, or it could just suck.
Space Dandy: “And you people, you’re all astronauts on… some kind of star trek?”
Nobunagun: Historical figures as weapons and shields? Please tell me Stephen Hawking becomes a black hole and ends the universe?
Tonari no Seki-kun: Who id Dexter and who is Dee-Dee here? For that matter, GET OUT OF MY LABORATORY!
Mahou Sensou: Light novel adaptations are always a gamble, but when they involve magic… well… they become more of a gamble, really.
Noragami: I don’t always call phone numbers on bathroom stalls, but when I do, I get deities who can cut shit. He is the Most Interesting Unemployed God in the World.
Onee-chan ga Kita: Seems like this might be the kind of SoL I enjoy watching, especially with them big-breasted quarter-Japanese girls. Mmm mmm….
Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta: I do like a good show about aerial combat, after this season of naval combat, but I’ve hadn’t heard of TMS, until I looked them up and found things like Lupin the Third: Mine Fujiko to Iu Onna, Magic Knight Rayearth, and Tenshi na Konamaiki. Bandai Visual is also involved, so there’s that. Either way, might be interesting.

Don’t Know if Want
Pupa: A girl who eats humans eh? This is a DEEN title, and it doesn’t look LOL SO RANDOM, so it might pan out. Rozen Maiden did, after all.
Wizard Barristers: If this isn’t magic meets Phoenix Wright, it’s dropped. No seriously. How else would you do a law show that isn’t Phoenix, Harvey Birdman, or the Chewbacca defense?
Witchcraft Works: I’ll be honest, the manga isn’t that great. It’s passable, but not great. By the time it starts getting interesting, it’s about the twentieth chapter and there is only twenty-five on Batoto to read. JC STAFF doing this means they will probably Railgun this into the ground, and the premise certainly shows signs of SHANA all over it. Five bucks they cast Hino Satoshi as Honoka.

Maken-NOPE: Are you capable of wrapping your mind around something worse than Infinite Stratos? Then by all means go watch the first season.
NOPE-Rin: Oh Silver Link. You gave me Non Non Biyori, and that’s fine, but that was based on an otherwise good manga. To go for a light novel? This smells like a trap.
Robot Girls NOPE: You know, just because it has robots and girls doesn’t mean I’ll bite.
NOPE Trick: Eh, it’s not because they’re lesbians, it’s just there is only room for one DEEN show a season. Something has to give.
Sailor NOPE: So wait, is this the remake, new thing, what? I’ve never seen Sailor Moon in my life. Not that I was going to start.

I’ll sort the rest of this out soon and make a chart. Happy Thanksgiving to whomever does it, happy whatever the fuck else the rest of you do. Work or something. I don’t know.
