I'm here just for the pure awesomeness of Yugioh GODanimation and Gate 2nd season cuz Rory.

No seriously, I'm not really interested in game anime adaptions..
I'll watch Kizumonogatari whenever the hell I finish the 2nd season.

Quite a lot of new shows that have potential. Though no sure things. Still I have plenty that will be continuing from this season that will ensure I have enough to watch (Haikyuu, Gundam, Utawarerumono, Gintama, Heavy Object) plus second seasons of Gate, AssClass and Snow White.

Looks like they're going for Lork Knight on Elsword, huh? That's good.

the most least excited season of the last 3 years

For me its quite the opposite. Its the most exciting season for me since Winter 2014. There are tonnes of new animes that grabbed me by the PV, synopsis and the poster. + Gate 2nd season!!!

A bunch of game adaptations. Chain Chronicle still alive although I think it might air Spring at best, Summer more likely.

Can't wait for Kizumonogatari as well as the sequels.
Dagashi Kashi looks like it might be fun as well.

What's with all the game adaptions? That can't be good ... The only one that even looks decent to me is Divine Gate, and it'll probably be mediocre (Chain Chronicle's animation looks pretty good, as well).

I will definitely be watching the second seasons for Shirayuki and GATE, and I'll probably check out Dagashi Kashi as well. And I'm watching Kizumono for sure. Other than that, nothing really seems appealing.

Can't decide if Sekkou Boys looks funny or retarded. Or both.

Chain Chronicle have a great animation
i think i will watch it

Dec 13, 2015 2:20 PM by tragedydesu

I can already tell that Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge will be my favorite of these.

If you are talking about the Heroes and Cygnus Knights, sure that could work somewhat.

I've been out of the loop for all the new characters for 4-5 years now ever since I quit for good.

If we are talking about adventurers, there is literally nothing to do.
Adventurers all got extensive storylines in the RED update which connect them to the Heroes' stories.
You could just forget everyone else and focus only on the Heroes' story and make something big out of that, not only do you have their fight leading up to the Black Mage but how they deal with their loss and come back centuries later.

I see.

I quit around the time Chaos update got introduced so yeah.

Hmmm January seems promising. Though I won't get my hopes up.

Dec 13, 2015 1:45 PM by bobzanny

Woooooooooah, Elsword??

What job paths will they have the characters take? and to what limits will they rush the shit out of it?

Dec 13, 2015 1:32 PM by Ein

Kizumonogatari is pure hype... and is only a video about Hanekawa.

Gate PV doesn't show much, Dagashi Kashi looks fine, Prince of Stride has a really good animation and Divine Gate looks cool. Seems decent.

Chain Chronicle animation O________O WOW
(Btw the game is really good)

New Kizumonogatari CM looks glorious! Aside from that and Lord of the Takanashi, nothing really stands out.
