Yay, more news on Baby Steps Season 2. Will we see Haikyuu S2 debut this Spring also? I hope so.
Kyoukai no Rinne (TV) looks good as well. And after all the teasing, I hope Non Non Biyori Repeat debuts either Spring or Summer this year. Seems like we'll get more info on Overlord later as well so perhaps that could be another title for Summer or Fall.
Oh and I hope Akira Hiramoto gets better soon from the flu season :/

I'm actually really hyped for Overlord, hoping that a studio can animate this well. Unlike SAO and Log Horizon, plot is driven by physical action rather than descriptive monologues. Problem is that the anime won't be able to replicate the beautiful art style.

Moar nano ripe!
Mirai Nikki is TRASH
Angel Beats is horrible.
Charlotte is a dumpster fire.
Shinsekai Yori has no characters.
Oreimo's S2 specials don't actually exist.
IM NOT AN ELITIST
I live to see the day where Hidamari Sketch or Little Witch Academia get another season.

Hyped for Non Non Biyori Repeat! I like me some Kyoukai no Rinne and more Baby Steps too.
Seems like people are looking forward to Overlord, I hope it turns out well.

I wanna wach overlord NOW!
Why are we still here? Just to suffer? Every night, I can feel my leg... and my arm... even my fingers. The body I've lost... the comrades I've lost... won't stop hurting... It's like they're all still there. You feel it, too, don't you? I'm gonna make them give back our past."
