Ridiculously Early Winter 2011 Chart

Edit: This chart has since been updated. Go here for the latest charts.

The reason I was going to start making these charts was because Chartfag was slowing down and there wasn’t another trustworthy creator of the charts. However Chartfag finally did bring out one of his amazing charts for the Fall Season (I feel like such a traitor calling it Fall, but I suppose Autumn is a bit of a stupid word anyway. What sort of word has the balls to put both an m and an n at the end of itself? Just make your mind up you stupid word).

I suppose Chartfag could start making charts at his regular speed once again but I doubt it. The two year death for anime blogs seems to stretch to chart makers as well. So while I’m not going to make any V2 for my Fall chart, that doesn’t mean I’m done for the next seasons yet. But don’t go searching for charts for new seasons several months beforehand. Dates simply have not been confirmed yet. Seriously, anyone who believes that they have a list this large confirmed for the Spring season already is pretty fucking stupid.

    “I sup­pose Autumn is a bit of a stu­pid word any­way”

    Hey, at least its a real word, with MEANING ! And it doesnt smell of USian dumbing down the language.

      Hey. :I

      It’s not our fault, hot damn. We’re just a little silly.

      As much as I hate to admit it, some USian versions of words are better than ye olde english words. However, no matter how many times the spell checker tells me otherwise, I will still put u’s in my colours

        It’s probably fall because leaf’s /fall/ in Fall.

  2. Posted August 21, 2010 at 5:23 pm | Permalink

    Being a Brit I don’t particularly understand why I use “Fall” either. It’s a short and compact word and most people understand it, which makes it a tad easier than Autumn to stick on things.

    And yeah, seeing as I will be at Uni next year, I doubt my chartery is going to get any faster. I’ll still TRY and make them, naturally, but if you want to bust out a few of your own, Cart Driver, then please do~

      But if you don’t make them I’ll have nobody to rip the designs off anymore!

      Only when I’m called a nigger in all caps will I be able to call myself the new chartfag

        I never considered that internet useful english would exist. huh, that’s actually really interesting.

      “Fall” in the autumnal sense entered the English language in the 1660’s, in England. It was short for “fall of the leaf”, which expression was around in the 1540’s — in England.

      Fall isn’t an Americanism. We just kept it, whereas the English let it fall… er, drop.

    A rivalry over charts? I can sense the Bakuman mood already.

      I like to think of it as an L/Near kinda thing, although that does have the downside of having myself as Near.

      Stoopid character :(

        Oh God, I hate Near, but don’t worry, I don’t hate you. :P

        I hated him originally too because he was just a pale imitation of L. However I later realised that was exactly the point and he’s quite an interesting character once you look at him from that perspective. I still hate the guy, but at least I actually get his purpose now.

        Still not sure what Mello was supposed to bring to the series though

    Gosick sounds interesting.

      So does Fractale. That leaves us with a 66% awesome/suck ratio at the moment, which is pretty damn awesome

        It definitely sound interesting, but also …confusing. What’s this fractale system they are talking about?
        Infinite Stratos sound like there will be one single boy between busty, goodlooking girls in tight science fiction outfits while fighting with mecha. Against something. Sounds like a cheap rip off of Neon Genesis Evangelion combined with bustyness to me. And if it doesn’t turn out to be a heartwrecking story about a young boy and it’s struggels with life, I probably won’t watch that one. Even if Kaworu is there. A HoYay Twist doesn’t make a harem better most of the time, and Kaworu, even if he was insanlely hot, was treated like a Draco in Leather Pants by the fangirls, if you consider that he doesn’t know what love is, and kills cute kittens, and made him really sweet in most of the doujinshi. (There are some that made him rape poor Shinji SM like, but still…) … Damn, Tvtropes changed my vocabulary.

        Everything is a rip off of Evangelion if you try hard enough. Even K-ON!

    Autumn > fall.

  6. Posted August 21, 2010 at 11:06 pm | Permalink

    Ahh I would think that Starry Sky airs/will be released/distributed/whatever in Winter.

    We all forgot it’s an ONA and it could be distributed on December 31 or something~

      It’s an ONA? Didn’t know that, although that sorta makes sense I guess

  7. Posted August 22, 2010 at 12:20 am | Permalink

    A Bakuman rivalry? I like the sound of that. Pardon me whilst I attach feathers to myself and imitate birds.

    And yeah, currently, looking at the three shows, two are already my most anticipated. Apparently loli-shota combinations are in fashion this Winter. Infinite Stratos on the other hand is obscuring the view.

      Still haven’t read Bakuman. The immenant anime adaptation meant I decided to wait. Although people dressing as birds has ramped my interest up even further

    It’s taught as “Autumn” in Japan, at least here in these parts. Maybe because it’s so much easier to say “OH-TA-MU” than trying to get their stubborn syllabically-trained lips to say “Fall.” :) And yet all the other great parts of British English are ignored in favor of ugly Americanism.

    Great chart! I think I like everything so far.

      I suppose FA-RU sounds kinda silly and pretty far away from its original sound. I’m trying to remember if I’ve heard anyone in anime ever say Autumn…

      • Posted August 23, 2010 at 12:01 pm | Permalink

        Last sentence. And then I recalled.

        The third SS game is ~in Autumn~, and one/all of the seasonal bishies say “honeybee” then “Starry Sky ~in ___~” at the beginning of every game.

        …I can’t say one is better than the other…

    Aw, but Autumn is such a pretty word. D: I mean, the spelling and sound make it sound so pretty…

    • fathomlessblue

      I totally agree. Autumn pawns the fall. The fact that it’s such a strange and quirky word to spell adds to the appeal. I personally love words that aren’t spelled as you expect, like through instead of thru (although Eddie Izzard would be sure to disagree with me).

      I have a friend from Londonderry whose name is pronounced Keeva but spelt Caoimhe. Best. Name. Ever.

      Oh, and nice chart ;P

      I knew both a Caoimhe and a Keeva. Caoimhe was said more like Quee-vah than Key-vah though. Maybe I was just pronouncing it wrong.

      I personally value practicallity over aesthetic value. As beautiful an alphabet Kanji is, it’s so ridiculously complicated compared to the Latin alphabet I’m surprised they’ve stuck with it for so long

    fractale sounds mildly interesting. especially if it’s a slice-of-life theme in the midst of an apocalyptic setting. we’ll see.

    infinite stratos sounded interesting for one second until i read “the only male” blahblah. nevermind.

    • Posted August 22, 2010 at 5:17 pm | Permalink

      It’s really a shame about Infinite Stratos, without it, you can see a brilliant season. With it, you read the description, see “only male in female place HIJIINKS ENSUE LOLOL” and realise anime is still apparently doomed – I rolled my eyes so much they came back out the other side.

    • Scamp

      Fractale is Noitamina. So long as Noitamina exists, anime shall never be doomed. In fact, there should be another Noitamina this season, making it 50% Noitamina shows. That, my friends, is an awesome season

      • Posted August 23, 2010 at 6:05 pm | Permalink

        I actually don’t know what I would think about the industry without noitaminA. Bones, Gainax, Studio 4c, Madhouse, Brains Base and A-1 Pictures also help to keep it reputable. Production IG’s taken a plunge, though…

  11. Posted August 23, 2010 at 12:50 am | Permalink

    I like these three, I think.
