January is almost upon us and some REALLY important shows are coming up. Before that though, I’ll start with a quick Fall 2013 final impression.
So Fall was a decent season for me. Sure, there were some really good shows like Non Non Biyori and Kill La Kill, some decent ones like I Wanna be The Strongest in the World (It got better in the 2nd half), Kyoukai no Kanata and Nagi no Asakura but it didn’t “WOW” me as much as the Spring and Summer seasons did. Winter looks a lot more promising in my eyes.
This looks like a well enough updated schedule of what to expect this Winter.
Saki Zenkoku-Hen. I am confident this season will continue delivering great “superpowered lesbian mahjong wrestling” action but there’s another reason I had been waiting 5 long years for this season: A Hell in the Cell Match of epic proportions with the fate of the entire universe on the line. I will be DAMNED if I am denied that Death Match! I have TOO LONG to see those two girls beat the bloody bejeezus out of each other! I don’t mind who the 3rd and 4th wrestlers are but the two I want to see tear each other apart had BETTER BE IN THE FINALS! Heck, I’d even accept an exhibition match between those two. JUST HAVE THEM FIGHT A BLOODY MATCH!
Pupa. The delay only increased my desire to watch this show. I have no idea what to expect but I am attracted to this show. I see something amazing coming from this. If I’m wrong, I at least want to be left speechless, for better or worse.
Wake-Up Girls. Despite the fears from some animeniacs due to the show producing this one also having produced Fractale and Kannagi (I think), I am still optimistic that this will be an interesting idol anime. It should hopefully keep me entertained till Love Live 2 airs in Spring.
Robot Girls Z. The pilot episode for this one showed me everything I needed to know about it: slapstick insanity. Sure, the episodes will be short but girls clobbering other girls is funnier than boys clobbering girls.
Seitokai Yakuindomo 2. I need to watch the OVA midquel to prepare myself for more sex joke goodness. I am curious to see how many more jokes they can dish out because I don’t think it’s easy to get away with a show revolving around sex jokes for more than 1 season.
Super Sonico TV. Her breasts are too big for me to get a raging otaku boner from seeing her in a bikini. Still, I’ll check out her show. I predict it’ll be similar to Miss Monochrome with Super Sonico having 3-5 minute episodics. If this show gets 20+ minute episodes, I’ll be surprised.
That’s it. If anyone out there sees another interesting show worth my time this season, let me know. Don’t mention the latest Precure though. I still have to watch Heartcatch, Suite and Doki Doki.
