Amagami SS +
Airing from January 5th

Second season of the Dating Sim-based romance stories, still in an “omnibus format”, this time with 2 episodes continuing the stories of each heroine from the first season.

I must admit, I have not seen amagami SS so I won’t know how this one will be. But I will give it a chance. It looks like a typical romance with some fanservice. I will not start watching it yet, I will need to finish the first season.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Ano Natsu De Matteru – (I’ll Wait in That Summer)
Airing from January 9th for 12 episodes

An Anime First romantic comedy by the creator of Onegai Twins.

Seems like the kind of anime I will only watch a few episodes and then drop it. Im not really into these romance/comedy anime, but I’ve decided I will not  “Judge a book by its cover”

Airing from January 9th, for 12 episodes

As adapted from a mystery Light Novel: 26 years ago, in a third-year classroom of a middle school, there was a student named Misaki. As an honors student who was also good at sports, the charming girl was popular with her classmates. When she suddenly died, her classmates decided to carry on as if she was still alive until graduation. Then, in the spring of 1998, a boy named Koichi Sakakibara transfers to that classroom, and he grows suspicious of the fearful atmosphere in that classroom. In particular, there is a beautiful, aloof girl named Misaki Mei who wears an eyepatch and is always alone drawing pictures.

 I can only say one about his anime. And that is that its going to be AMAZING! Having seen the PV and read the synopsis made me look forward to it.Even if the PV is in jappaneese with no subtitles I still understood absolutely everything! I have not seen that much horror anime but I am sure that I will enjoy this one.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Aquarion Evol
Airing from January 8th

A sequel to Genesis of Aquarion taking place 12,000 years later, chronicling a battle against new enemies from another dimension.

First let me tell you that im not really into mecha, however after I’ve seen Code Geass I decided to give mecha a chance. Who knows?Maybe I will like it.The PV really made me want to see the first season until this one comes out.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Area no Kishi
Airing from January 7th

A soccer anime, particularly focusing on the main character’s relationship with his Aloof Big Brother.

Let me start with saying, Anime and sports don’t go that well together! Anime is mostly all about………….. AWESOME THINGS THAT WON’T HEAPPEN IN REAL LIFE! But let’s get back to Area no Kishi. Being an anime about football doesn’t mean there is only going to be football. I suspect that, as any typical anime they will add romance to it!

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________Black★Rock Shooter
Airing from February 2nd for 8 episodes

A TV anime based on the characters created by huke and popularized by the Supercell/Vocaloid music video. Based off the earlier Black★Rock Shooter OVA.

I need to say that I have not watched the OVA therefore I have no idea how the anime will be.I have read the synopsis and it seems pretty interesting. I really like the artstyle.I tend to prioritize high quality anime and this one seems to have a good quality.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________Bodacious Space Pirates
Airing from the 7th of January for 26 episodes

This Light Novel-based story is about a spirited high school girl named Marika, who inherits a pirate spaceship from her dead father.

The PV starts with her being popular at school and stuff and then BAM, she is in a spaceship launching attacks on other spaceships. Doesn’t it make PERFECT SENSE?! I don’t know what to think about this anime, a high school girl being a pirate in space is something that was certainly not donebefore. I’m anxious to see how it turns out.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________Brave 10
Airing from the 7th of January for 12 episodes

The story reimagines the legendary adventures of the 10 brave warriors assembled by the warlord Sanada Yukimura in the year 1600, in the middle of Japan’s tumultuous Sengoku (Warring States) era.

This seems interesting. The fact that it’s set in the year 1600 gives me high hopes. I just hope it doesn’t get childish and focus on fights.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________Danshi Koukousei No Nichijou – (Daily Lives of High School Boys)
Airing from the 9th of January

The original gag comedy manga follows the humorous yet “realistic” everyday life of Tadakuni, Hidenori, Yoshitake, and other students at a boys’ high school.

So basically this anime is about high school boys talking about girls and how to make a girlfriend.Sounds nice enough. I laughed my ass off at the PV when one of them is showing some panties to the other boys 🙂

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________Highschool DxD
Airing from the 6th of January for 12 episodes

The story follows Issei Hyoudou, a dim-witted, lecherous second-year high school student who is killed by a girl on his first date ever. Issei is reincarnated as a devil, and from that day forward, he serves as an underling of Riasu, a high-level devil who is also the prettiest girl on Issei’s campus.

 An anime season cannot be enjoyable without an plotless ecchi! There we have it. The plot doesn’t really seem interesting enough. Will just going to watch it for the fanservice 😛

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________Inu x Boku SS – (Dog × Me SS)
Airing from the 12th of January

Adapted from the manga of the same name by Cocoa Fujiwara.

Riricho Shirakiin, who has a complex about being unable to live independently and unprotected, feels the need to move out and live on her own under the condition of residing in a certain mansion. Only those who have cleared a very strict examination could reside in this mansion, and they are accompanied with one agent of the Secret Service (S.S.). Although Riricho has rejected the company of the S.S., while residing in the mansion she finds out that the agent dedicated to protecting her is actually the Fox Spirit whom she previously rescued.

 Whats up with this S&M anime? This is getting all romantic and stuff but oh well. Forget it, as long as there is a cute loli I’m in! She kind of reminds me of Victorique from Gosick! Gngggggggggg

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Kill Me Baby – (Baby, Please Kill Me!)
Airing from the 5th of January

An anime adaption of Yonkoma gag manga revolving around an airheaded, but otherwise ordinary high school girl, who befriends an assassin classmate.

I have no idea what to think anymore, but the PV made me laugh. This anime has “alot of sense”, the loli assasin and the airheaded girl. But whats even more senseless is that they look like they’re 8 years old but they’re in “highschool”! Seriously japan? Even Pokemon has a better plot than this!  But its a comedy so its supposed to not have any plot, and this is the exact reason why I dislike comedies.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Natsume Yuujinchou Shi
Airing from the 1st of January                                                    (PV)

The fourth season of the laid-back supernatural adventure of a boy and his youkai mentor.

The story seems weird. And it looks like a typical shounen. Not too sure about this.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________New Prince of Tennis
Airing from the 4th of January for 1 cour                                 (PV)

The sequel to the popular tennis manga, now in anime form.

I love tennis and I love anime. Will definetly like this! And no, I havn’t seen prince of tennis before.

Airing from the 7th of January for 13 episodes

The sequel to Bakemonogatari. A swindler who once tricked Hitagi arrives in town, spreading the curse which afflicted Nadeko in the first series. Koyomi’s sisters, Karen and Tsukihi, start working to capture this swindler, but things get complicated along the way.

Persoanlly I did not enjoy Bakemonogatari as much as others have. The story and plot were okay but there are two things that really disturbed me. And that is that it uses elements from real life,that’s something that should not be done in an anime.Also the text that pops up is just too sudden and makes no sense. Putting that aside I enjoyed it.Looking forward to Nisemonogatari!

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________Papa No Iukoto Wo Kikinasai! – (Listen to Me Girls, I Am Your Father )                                                      Airing from the 10th of January                                           (PV)

Segawa Yuta is a freshman of a university. He lost his parents when he was small and was raised by his sister Yuri. Yuta has been living alone since Yuri got married to a middle-aged man when Yuta was a junior high student. One day, Yuri visited Yuta’s apartment and asked him to take care of her three daughters while Yuri and her husband were on a trip. He unwillingly accepted the job but the plane Yuri took went missing. In order to prevent the daughters from being adopted separately by the relatives, Yuta decided to take in all the three girls. A life of a strange family in a tiny apartment begins.

The story looks nice enough, it reminds me of Usagi Drop.Im probably going to like this. A tsundere, a hyper active girl and a cute loli. What else could you want?

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Poyopoyo Kansatsu Nikki
Airing from the 8th of January

A Slice of Life comedy about a spherical cat.

This doesn’t seem that interesting. It might just be one of those comedy shows.


Recorder To Randoseru – (Recorder and Satchel)

A story based on a yonkoma manga, about an 11-year-old that looks 17 is taken care of by his 17-year-old sister, who looks 11.

Gotta love the twist!. Im really curious about how good it will be.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Rinne No Lagrange: Flower Declaration of Your Heart
Airing from the 8th of January, for 12 episodes

An Anime First series dealing with three girls using Humongous Mecha to fight off alien invaders. Looks to be somewhat Slice of Life in-between fight scenes

Sounds pretty much like Evangelion.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Senhime Zesshou Symphogear
Airing from the 6th of January, for 13 episodes

An original anime, that tells the story of two girls in a top vocal unit named Zweiwing who fight to save humanity against a threat known as “Noise.”

Girls fighting each other………. WITH THEIR VOICE! As weird as it sounds it may be awesome, who knows? Will have to wait until January the 6th to see.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Smile Pretty Cure
Airing from the 5th of February

The 9th anime entry to the Pretty Cure Magical Girl series.

God! Why do I have to watch this? I don’t even know what to say about it!

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Tantei Opera Milky Holmes Dai-Ni-Maku
Airing from the 5th of January for 12 episodes

Second season of the detective-based Magical Girl series.

In real life we have Sherlock Holmes. In the world of anime we have MILKY HOLMES! Horray for loli detectives with super powers for getting a second season! Mwahahahha

________________________________________________________________________________________________________Thermae Romae
Airing from January 12th for 3 episodes

This manga adaptation is a comedy about Lucius, an architect of public bath houses in ancient Rome, who time-travels to various modern-day baths in Japan. The author explores the two cultures in the world “that have loved baths the most: the Japanese and the Romans.”

 What?! Who the heck even cares about which country loves baths the most? This is bullshit . And it only has 3 episodes?! Also, I don’t get how this can be funny!

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Zero no Tsukaima F – (The Familiar of Zero – Final)
Airing from January 7th for 12 episodes

The fourth and final season of the Zero no Tsukaima series.

Zero no Tsukaima ?! This is definetly be great, I cant wait for it! I’ve seen the previous seasons and I really liked it. Might do a short summary on every episode if I have the time to.

That’s it, those are the anime that will come out in the next months. I will do short summary on every ep of every anime that I like. ! Thanks for reading! -Robert

  1. I know u can delete me so do that after you read me
    I am not perfect at englsh either but at the last one u said “This is definetly be great” u should chose from “This is definetly great” or “This will definetly be great”
    1 more thing… because I was bored i watched the first episode of “Natsume Yuujinchou-Shi” and it’s pretty good. I’m going to finish it

  2. I don’t know how you are able to watch ALL of the anime for this upcoming winter season but kudos to you! I don’t plan on watching many but Another is definitely on my list. It looks GREAT!

  3. It seems impossible to watch all anime aired in Winter, But then again, maybe that just me. I’ll cheer you anyway

    By the way, I didn’t know there is a Thermae Romae anime! I read the manga just two weeks ago and it was quite hilarious. Looking forward to it.
