UPDATE: Pandora and Garokawa were added to the “Must Watch”section.
Note to self: Wait until the 3rd week of the 3rd month of a season before posting seasonal picks.
Picks are based on this chart.
Koukaku no Pandora/Pandora in the Crimson Shell: Ghost Urn.
January 8th Premiere. Like Akuma no Riddle it will get an early preview, in Pandora’s case a 50 minute theater special. I was aware this show was coming. Didn’t expect it so soon but hey, WE GOT SOMETHING! Heard from reliable sources that it’s worth the nation’s time.
In an age when large-scale natural disasters frequently happen all over the world, when cyborgs and autonomous robots are beginning to appear on the market in technologically advanced nations and major world powers compete for technology and resources, the divide between rich and poor grows and the future for the poor looks bleak. In this transitional stage, everyone wanders around in a self-indulgent daze and the way out isn’t clear… This is the story of how two cybernetically enhanced girls meet.
Garokawa Restore The World.
This is interesting. Just when I thought we wouldn’t get any subbed movies, lo and behold Crunchyroll drops the bombshell of this one getting subbed early on their site, once again showing I goofed up by posting my picks too early.
Watch both trailers by clicking here.
According to the Crunchyroll forum post, the movie will be uploaded for premium members January 16th while residents in the San Francisco Bay area will get to attend an early screening on January 9th.
Mahou Shoujo Mouiidesukara. It’s a magical girl show. That’s all I’ve got for this one.
Oshiete! Gyaruko-chan. I think it’s a naughty Girls Club show. Sounds fun. Hopefully it won’t be revealed as a “short” before its premiere, though it may have material for me to write stuff…
Nurse Witch Komugi-chan R. I saw the old Komugi-chan years ago and to be honest I was not impressed…more like I was annoyed. I don’t have high hopes for this latest entry. Again we’ll have to wait and see.
The only non-female centered (het-harems and rom-coms excluded) shows that caught my interest are Ajin, Dimension W and Phantasy Star Online 2 TV…maybe Bubuki Buranki but I dunno what that one’s about. Could this mean OG will FINALLY go to his HUGE backlog? I still plan on going to my backlog.
Again I jumped the gun. Oops.
The Milky Holmes and WIXOSS movies will take a while to get subbed so I hope the Girls Und Panzer movie gets subbed sometime this Winter.
