Thomas will do the same to anthropomorphized trains genre what Madoka did to magical girls genre

Thomas and Friends ftw, I always shipped him and Percy together when I was a kid <3. I wonder if it will have BL elements or just subtle hints.

Medaka Box for sure, and maybe Sakamichi no Apollon. Everything else is absolute crap.

I must be getting old or something, with each season there's less and less anime that I am interested in watching and half of them i end up not watching properly (i.e doing something else while the episodes play on background)..
My one pick for Spring season is Sakamichi no Apollon.
Although, i wonder if they remove the fillers from the remaster version of Nadia, if they do, that could be worth a watch as well. Used to love that series when it was running on German cable TV in the 90s..

For once there doesn't appear to be a sequel series for me, may have to branch out a bit more come spring.
Also there is one movie on that chart I've already seen

No, you are not. A checked this list a few days on some other site, and I was like "ok, I'll rewatch my favourites this season then"

I was feeling the same way. It's kinda scary that there are less and less worthy anime series to watch with each season. Well, at least I can catch up on other shows and finish a few this coming season.

thank you unranked and NanoZero for your reassuring words :)
re-watching old favourites might be a good idea, i just hope i'll be able to be focused, as my fading interest seems to be the issue. or maybe doing something else entirely, something outdoorsy perhaps, will be spring after all.

(regarding old, then i just realized the other day that next year in spring it'll be the 20th anniversary of when i first saw anime, take your wild guess that i wasn't an infant at the time :D).

I'm kinda interessted in uchuu kyoudai.I'll also check Sakamichi no Apollon.

new Queen's blade anime? Liked the seccond season (believe me or not the story was good) I didn't watch the OVA...so I'll pass.

Hmm...Kimi to Boku S2, Saki, and Kore wa Zombie Desu ka Jigoku Hen are must sees for me...but I'll probably pick up another original anime besides those. What that will be, I'm not sure yet.

Yeah, those shows weren't too appealing to me before, too(and still aren't)... I don't know how kids can watch that...

Seems like Neregate's site is down due to suspension, so here's his v2 chart hosted on The Cart Driver:


Well, I'm watching:
- Ozuma (short, old school stuff is cool, right?)
- FUCKEN THOMAS
- Hyouka (KyoAni, I believe in you!)
- Kuroko no Basket (I.G+Basketball, and LOLGRANRODEO is doing a theme song)
- Tasogare Otome x Amnesia (this is going to be SHAFT-y)
- Uchuu Kyoudai (that dog turned me on)
- Medaka Box (GAINAX AND NISIOISIN OMGOMGOMGOMG THIS IS GOING TO BE FABULOUS CAN'T WAIT)
- Accel World (protag doesn't even look human compared to the others)
- Tsuritama (Uki Atsuya)
- Sakamichi no Apollon (noitaminA and jazz and Yoko Kanno and great animation and everything)
- Haiyoru! Nyaruko-san (well, I've watched all the other anime adaptions of this, so why not)

MAL says that Nazo no Kanojo X airs this spring, but if that's the case, then Ayumu Watanabe is directing both it and Uchuu Kyoudai, and I have problems imagining him pulling that off. And also - only thing Brains Base is doing next season is that shit KONAMI Sengoku show. Shining Hearts: Bread of Happiness seems even derpier, though.

10 shows? (let's face it - Thomas the Train isn't going to get subbed) Assuming that half of the series I've picked is going to end up as utter crap (and, believe me, they will), I appreciate there at least seems to be some watchable series next season.

What I will watch:

-Kimi To Boku 2
- Phi Brain Kami no Puzzle 2
-Tsuritama
- Hyouka? (the picture looks nice)

Though I usually watch the 1st episode of all new animes. :P

But is it just me, or there seems to be a lot of all girls anime in spring (15/44). Winter 2012 line up was good though...

Less shows every season that I find interesting. Hm.

This is one of the rare spring animes where I didn't even found one show a tad interesting. I'm just going to finish some things on my list... hopefully, Fall has better choices.

You're most probably getting old because as a long-time anime fan/specialist (and industry person), I can assure you there's not been such an interesting year of anime in terms of quantity and quality since the mid-2000's (let's say 2006/2007). The good series are finally coming back on our screens and the anime business is back on tracks stronger than it was in the previous 3/4 years with roaring high-budget productions.

This. The amount of good series produced last year was quite abundant.

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Actually, i don't necessarily think that anime is bad these days, far from that.
I just feel i'm not interested in watching most, even those that are good/excellent etc. As an example, from fall season 2011, everyone was raving about F/Z, i watched it and felt quite indifferent towards it, but that doesn't mean it's a bad show. It just didn't do it for me :)
In comparison to older anime, then no worries, most of them don't do it for me either. But i felt a pang of sadness when i had a look on the preview of next season and saw that only one up-coming anime piqued my interest. Since following anime seasonally from autumn 2008, this hasn't happened to me yet. So that's what i meant with my comment earlier :)

And i even came back to this thread to have another look on the preview to see perhaps i've miraculously got younger again and there's something else that i'd like to watch coming spring.

There's that new (fucking awesome-looking) Lupin the IIIrd series in April, but that's missing from the graph. That's the one thing I am anticipating the most in the spring.

I'm going to try out A LOT of stuff, but also looking forward to Sakamichi no Apollon, Phi Brain season 2, and Uchuu Kyoudai more than anything else.

I haven't watched Eureka 7 in general, so I'm avoiding Ao until I actually get to watching that. @w@;;;

I'm a fan of the Sankarea manga. I was suprised at how good it was (I wasn't expecting much).
Hyoukka seems a bit too down to earth/every-day-life to me, but it could be good.
Other than those two, I don't see any more TV series I particularly want to watch. *sighs over having to wait until Summer for Sword Art Online*
