OG’s Spring 2013 Anime Picks

I think this is the official lineup of shows to expect this coming season. Hmm, let’s see what shows will initially pique my interest.


OG’s guaranteed picks:

Oreimo 2

Ore no Imouto 2. I’ll be honest. I was completely satisfied with the default in season 1 and felt there was no need to continue. But noooooo, those insipid fanboys just HAD TO HAVE our male lead get paired up with somebody, thus the bonus 4 episodes and the upcoming 2nd season. Whatever, I’ll pick it up because the 1st season had a lot of interesting things that didn’t revolve around hooking up the guy with any girl. Chances are they’ll focus more on romance this season and piss me off.

More Girls und Panzer episodes…hopefully more than 1.

railgun-season-2To Aru Kagaku no Railgun S. While others are more psyched for the Index movie, I’ll stick with the 2nd season of Railgun.

Shows picked up due to curiosity: I have no idea what to expect from any of these shows but I’ll check them out nevertheless.

Otona Joshi no Anime Time - Kawamo o Suberu KazeOtona Joshi no Anime Time. This one looks mature. I’m interested.

Red Data GirlRDG. Red Data Girl. Maybe this could be the show some Inu x Boku fans wanted. I dunno.

Pretty.Rhythm .Rainbow.Live.full.1408239

Pretty Rhythm: Rainbow Live. This one depends on whether I NEED to see the prequels in order to catch up and the prequels are both 51 episodes long. My backlog is already full…


Karneval. Out of all my picks in this category, this is the epitome of curiosity. My spider sense indicates yaoitacular vibes…but if the show’s interesting…I’ll take my chances.


Shingeki no Kyojin. The action show I picked at random to watch.

Yuyushiki and Aiura look like they’ll be 3-minute shows so it shouldn’t be too much trouble.

Extra comments:

I’ll have to rely on the opinion of anibloggers I trust to find out whether the show revolving around the guy with a hair cutting fetish will be worth my time.

I haven’t played Devil Survivor 2, like most Shin Megami Tensei games, so I’ll be skipping this one too. I don’t dislike the games, I just haven’t played them.

The Hanasaku Iroha and Higurashi movies won’t be fansubbed for a while so I’ll wait till when I do. The Steins;Gate movie will have to wait till I eventually pick up the anime.

43714japanjapaneseappleMy best guess is the art style won’t change and the characters will merely be dubbed by Japanese seiyuu.

I’m a Brony, but I don’t think I’ll be picking up the Japanese dub of the show, unless they come up with new content. Till then, I’m happy with the original version…

    There is no yaoi in Shingeki no Kyojin, just SHEER AWESOMENESS. One of the most anticipated shows of my life (I read the manga).

    There’s actually a couple shows with awesome manga that I’ve read. That hentai one should be funny (the title can be misleading, as there’s no actual hentai or fanservice).

    . . . . .

    Actually I think that’s the only one. Anyway, more Hayate is always good, even if it is from shitty Manglobe.

    I really liked the first Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls season, and I’d love another. Same with Azazel, which is superbly funny.

    I’m still only halfway through the first railgun and haven’t seen the second season of Index, so it looks like I’ve probably given up on those two titles…

    Mushibugyou is my dark horse of the season. I need to write a season preview it looks like….

      Good to know that there are plenty of shows on your schedule this Spring as well. Whether you’ll be able to see them depends on you. I didn’t say Shingeki no Kyojin had yaoi. All I said was that it’s an action show I picked at random to watch. That’s all.

    And oh holy shit…..Aku no Hana is an anime? Weird ass manga that was overall really interesting…

    And is that a NOZOKI ANA bit of animation????? AWESOMEEEEEEEEEE>…..

    AND a new episode of Seitokai Yakuindomo!


    • Overlord-G says:

      Other than another Seitokai Yakuindomo episode, I honestly have no interest in the other shows you mentioned because most of them sound like rom-coms, I haven’t seen Azazel yet.

      I haven’t seen Index but I loved Railgun.
