it's that time of year again, folks! since nej has been busy in Vacationland i'll take over duties once again. we have some fresh anime, some seasons of earlier anime, and some continuations of stuff from earlier this year. to me, i'm a bit 'meh' on most of what's here, but maybe it'll be like last season when i loved everything and everyone else was 'meh' on all of that, too. xD
the ones that sound mildly interesting to me(confirmed interest in bold):

Busou Shinki
Chuunibyou Demo Koi Ga Shitai!

Code:Breaker (???, perhaps for the club if it's not too graphic)
Girls Und Panzer (MAYBE. maybe.)
Haitai Nanafa (i'm basing this on the style alone)
Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb (as cute as this looks, it's a bit shakey since i haven't seen any of it yet and this is season FOUR.)
Hiiro no Kakera (though i should watch the first season first >>; )
Hayate no Gotoku (?)
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (i've always wondered what this is about and now i can find out)
Kamisama Hajimemashita (maybe?)
Little Busters (?)
Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankei Nai yo ne (?)
Sakurasou No Pet Na Kanajo
Sukitte Ii Na Yo (???)
Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
Zetsuen no Tempest (???)

Once again cancer has killed the anime industry, and all SHAFT is giving us this season is MORE HIDAMARI SKETCH.

Oh my, I will be VERY studious this autumn.

TVTrope's description of Girls Und Panzer is absolutely hilarious.

I might check out Robotics;Notes if I ever finish Steins;Gate. >>

IKR? We haven't had a good anime season since, like, what? Winter/Spring 2011?

to be fair, i liked the offerings last season, but for once i agree with you. nothing has me hyped up at all. >>;
some look alright, but after last season it's disappointing since EVERYTHING looked good to me last season. :\

Chou Soku Henkei Gyrozetter - (Super Speed Transforming Gyrozetter)
Busou Shinki - (Armed God-Princesses)
Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankei Nai yo ne
Sukitte Ii Na Yo - (Say "I love you")

SO UNORIGINAL IT'S COPYPASTA TIER:
Code:Breaker
Ixion Saga DT
Kamisama Hajimemashita
Little Busters!
Sakurasou No Pet Na Kanojo - (The Pet Girl of the Sakura Hall)
Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun - (The Monster Seated Next To Me)

BY THE GODS WHY DID THIS GET ANOTHER SEASON TIER:
Hayate the Combat Butler! Can't Take My Eyes Off You

Hiiro no Kakera 2nd Season
Jormungand
To Love-Ru Darkness


IM 12 YEARS OLD AND WHAT IS THIS TIER:

POSSIBLY INTERESTING TIER:

And even then half of those possibly interesting ones are so by a VERY generous margin of suspension d' disbelief.
SO DEPRESSING.

Mmm. Aside from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, nothing of interest here

@nej: i think it depends on preference. for example, a couple of the series i think look good ended up on your shit tier. however, most of them i agree with, especially some things in tier 2 and everything in tiers 3, 4, and 5. >>;

the general concensus is that regardless of preference, this whole season lacks passion from all sides. it's just one big "MEH." ><;;

so it seems we all overlooked the first anime on the list, due to lack of info and a picture.

tbh, Aikatsu! doesn't sound very original, but depending on the art style and how deep the plot might be, it MIGHT be worth looking into.

of course, i saw the word "idols" and i was like "OMGSOUKYOOT". my bad. :\

Jojo is really great, but the manga. Dunno if the anime is of quality...

For example Berserk is a superb manga but the anime was made really el-cheapo (I think that they had really a low budget)

Post by: Chocofreak13 on August 11, 2012, 11:17:07 am
yeah, with a manga that's such a long-standing one, there's quite a bit of room for error. but personally, i think it's better to have tried and failed than not to have tried at all. worst case scenario is that we never speak of it again. :\

AIRING NOW(please note that more animoo have been added to the list from when this was announced)
Title: Re: Fall 2012 AniMaple Leaves are Turning Red

Okay. Reviews so far...

CODE:BREAKER - Animated like it's 2005 or something. Lead characters are well voiced, but the story is SO DAMN CHEESE. Will most likely drop.
Magi - Apparently Aladdin and Alibaba is in an animu now or something. But aside from the fact that the main character is named Alibaba and yet looks like a short-haired version of me, it's good so far. Will follow.
Tonari no kaibutsukun - I get the urge to type this as one word every time. Anyway, seems pretty k. Will follow.
EYEPATCH MOEchu2koi - Silly abbreviations, yes. Veeeery doubtful setup, yes. But when KyoAni does it...you just can't know what will come of this. Animation is superb and voicework is as well, but I haven't gotten through the first episode yet. I have problems with humiliation, so to speak. Will at least try, though. /a/ absolutely adores it.
K - Haven't watched yet, but it's on the list.
Jojo - Smells like utter and total waste of time, I'm afraid. It's like a mediocre Gundam Seed, but without the robots. Dropped.

Robotics;Notes isn't out yet, but I'm patiently waiting for that. Otherwise, it seems like we're up a few, but down some.

i've torrented Tonari, BTOOOM!, and Tempest, with plans to torrent more (including ChuKoi). have yet to watch, will update later.

aw, no love for hidamari. XD;
It's the amusing, wideface-cute noise you watch when you want to completely turn off your brain! ....I like it, and I accept your scorn. :D
(and I loved they chose the Hidamari artist for Madoka. The contrast with Urobuchi's storytelling made it awesome, imo)

Will watch Hidamari, Chu2koi, Robotics;Notes. Possibly Psycho Pass (cuz Urobuchi Gen), Girls Und Panzer (cuz I liked Strike Witches and World of Tanks game, so why not?), and Jojo (cuz... Jojo), depending on how much time I have to watch. If not while airing, then much later (as I tend to do with a lot of series).

And for the record, my disbelief is always suspended. :3

i'm thinking of jojo too, simply because i've always wanted to know more about the series but never got the chance to read the manga. as for hidamari, it looks adorable, but if i'm to watch it i've got 3 seasons before it.

and tbh as cute as it looks, the energy spent making a 4th season could have been spent making the rest of the pickings less....meh. ;^;

Let me know if Jojo is any good. I always wanted to play the fighting game based on it, which was advertized in the back of the instructions to a Mega Man spinoff game I have (It's from the same developer) :3

Like i said, Jojo is terrible. Dropped for me.

Like I said earlier, it's something to watch after turning off your brain. Not something to watch straight through because it's super funny or has an interesting plot, but something to watch an episode or two at a time to unwind. I watched moe/cute, pointless slice-of-life shows so I could stop stressing over the engineering stuff and school stuff I had to do, and I learned to like these shows, and still do even now without all that academic stress in life.

Well, Shaft has no control over what other studios are doing, but I imagine that with all the *-monogatari and Madoka stuff, they would eventually return to the other thing that fans were clamoring for a sequel for. (they're out there, I know them lol) It has been more than 2 years since the 3rd season aired, after all. And the manga, I believe, is still continuing.

hidamari or madoka? :\

@nej: one person's terrible is another's holy grail. take madoka, for example. >>;

Not terrible in that way. Unless you somehow can see shit animation quality as appealing...

which part?

"I imagine that with all the *-monogatari and Madoka stuff, they would eventually return to the other thing that fans were clamoring for a sequel for."
Hidamari. Madoka Magica anime stuff is still ongoing, what with the movies and all. They gave a hidamari OVA... last year, I think, to placate the fans, but I'm sure they still want a full season.

"And the manga, I believe, is still continuing."
And yes indeed the Hidamari 4koma manga is still ongoing. And for that reason, there's enough new (well, as "new" as moe slice-of-life shows like this can be) material for another season.

It's certainly not appealing, but for me, animation quality isn't a major prerequisite to my enjoying an anime.
...I'm actually not entirely sure why I like the anime I like, but I guess that's me being way too open minded for my own good.

@sleepy: you answered both, so i'm covered, thanks. :3

@nej: i've actually been conditioned to appriciate lesser quality animation due to TK freezing whenever i tried to watch something HD. this also led me away from most shows that are heavy in CG (read: Nazo no Kanojo X). dunno how this will translate into Loly, but it's important to note that there's more to an anime than just animation quality. i've wanted to know more about Jojo for years, so it could be a bunch of stickfigures animated in Pivot and i'd still watch. :\
