…and after looking through a massive selection the only thing that looks good is the bag of potato chips on the side. I don’t expect much from the winter season, in fact I think it will suck ass, but because JP & I are running a team blog I thought it would be fun to copy everybody else and do a preview post with some pre-season thoughts. So let’s get started!
Hinano – This is a sequel to an anime I haven’t gotten past episode 1 of. Undead girls aren’t my thing. Pass.
JP – Have fun trying to watch this one, people that don’t live in the USA!
Hinano - DO NOT WANT.
JP - You know, one of these days I’ll get around to watching this series.
Hinano – Did they finally decide to name a girl Melon after her rack? I mean soon we’ll have girls named Hooters-chan and Gazongas-chan. I’ll probably be blogging this show. Epic fail VN to anime conversions are my specialty.
JP – I have to admit, there was a disappointing lack of melons in the promo art. Melon is soooooo not an appropriate name for her!
Hinano – I like epic fail VN to anime conversions, but I’m not a big fan of the emo ones unless it’s made by Key. This looks like it’s gonna be another Kanon but I’ll check it out anyway. Could turn out to be worth my time.
JP – Hopefully I can avoid this one
Hinano – DIE SHAFT! YOU GO TO HELL AND YOU DIE!
JP – GENTLEMEN, START YOUR FILTERS!
Hinano – Go away, 1 season of you was enough!
JP – I wish I both knew what emoticom represented a teardrop mouth, and I wish that I could read that emoticom without having Japanese language support installed. Also, even though I didn’t watch it, I will declare the second season of Minami-ke as the best, because I could translate “Okawari” as “Sloppy Seconds”
Hinano – Another sequel to an anime I couldn’t get past episode 1 of.
Hinano – This looks like a stupid show JP would like (to make fun of.) Pass.
JP – Actually, I believe that some of the My-Hime/Otome staff is involved in this one. But here is my obligatory fun-making: “MOAR LIKE ‘TOKI O BUKAKERU SHOUJO’ AMIRITE LOLOLOLOL”
Hinano – Um ew? Next.
JP – While “VIPER’S CREED” is kind of an awesome name, THIS is the kind of show that I would like to make fun of. And maybe I will!
Hinano – As we have learned with Slayers, bringing ancient shows back from the dead for the “current” anime audience is epic failage.
JP – One of these days, I’ll get around to watching Hajime no Ippo. The fact that it is 76 episodes long means that it is going to get put off for a long time.
Hinano – This is based off some manga right? I like the character designs. Will give it a look though, although I imagine this would be something Totali would slobber all over.
JP – lolololol romantic comedies, which are so seldom romantic or comedic. Also, MOAR LIKE ASS NO YOICHI AMIRITE?
Hinano – Another sequel. I feel like because I played the MMO for 3 days I should actually watch season 1 but I can’t get myself to bother because Gonzo rears its ugly head into my mind.
JP – I was interested in the Tower of Druaga when it looked like it would be about people playing an MMO, or having the MMO as the story, but the “players” speaking through the characters. Since it’s not that any more, I’m not interested. But if you’re listening somebody, make that a show!
Hinano – HAR HAR HAR. I don’t know if I’ll even bother with this show. It’s seems like another one of those “kawaii desu roriko is actually an ass kicking tsundere/yandere/whatever” things.
JP – Oh wait, you guys already know what I have to say about this one.
Hinano – Season 1 looked dumb enough that I didn’t even bother. Yet another sequel I’ll be skipping.
JP – And now, some more fecalia: MOAR LIKE TURDY THE MIGHTY AMIRITE? Man, I never get tired of that.
Hinano – I dunno the character designs are hideous. I can totally see after like the first episode, people’s faces beginning to look more contorted than they do in the promotional poster. Although I suppose that in its own would be a reason to watch and lol.
JP – I dunno dude, this show sounds pretty cool. Also, “Chrome Shelled Regios” totally sounds like the name of a Yu-Gi-Oh card.
Hinano – The writers new Season 1 was gonna be epic fail (which it was) so they split it into 13 and 13 instead of the traditional 26 episoder. That’s too bad because the first 13 eps of most Slayers series are stupid filler crap and the actual plot kicks in around episode 16. With this in mind, maybe this season will actually conclude the storyline which seemed retarded and non-existant in S1. (Either that or if I hear Blackstarmon 1 more time… )
JP – If I am forced to watch it, I will. Hopefully, I won’t be.
Hinano – Is this like the modern version of Brigadoon? Maybe JP will be interested, girls & bikes aren’t my thing.
JP – Nah, girls and bikes aren’t my thing either. LOL! Anyway, civil rights +, motorcycles -
Hinano – Munto the TV series. I mean I think when I saw the movie it was during a time when anime was scarce so I thought it was the most awesome thing ever. Now that I think about it, it really wasn’t all that special and I can’t justify watching a TV series based off it.
JP – Meanwhile, I have no idea what Munto is.
Hinano – Umm is this a yaoi anime? I only see mans on the site! I’m getting STRONG Kyou Kara Maou! vibes from it. I’ll have to pass. I bet JP will be interested though
JP – Of course! If there’s one thing I like more than World War II, it’s yaoi! Kyaaaaaaah!
