Spring 2011 Anime Chart v3

  • I have a sneaking suspicion Appleseed is delayed, so don’t be surprised to see a big fat DELAYED sign plastered across the next chart update.
  • Kids shows are awfully difficult to get information on. For example, I’m pretty certain Sock Monkey Loves You has been delayed more times than Duke Nukem Forever. There also might be a new Hamtaro, or it could be a rerun. Or even just a one episode special. Nobody knows and, more depressingly, nobody cares. Yet I’ve got to try find out this sort of stuff to make the damn chart.
  • The big image down the bottom is simply there to prevent there being a big auld blank space. The picture is from the upcoming Fireball Charming show.
  • I’ll have a proper season preview up in about a week, so no opinions from me telling you what to watch just yet. Besides, I’m sure you’re all intelligent enough to know to watch C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control next season anyway =D

    Sock Monkey Loves You — Aargh! I can’t wait for that show to come out. I have been really excited about it ever since it was announced, because I happened to see a copy of the book it is based on, and the book is really nicely designed and presented. Plus it is apparently an anime about how to make a Sock Monkey! This could be the start of a whole new trend in anime! Why must I continue to wait?

    Hurray! It’s there!
    … I can already feel the snarkyness and hidden anger by reading your descriptions to the moe shows~
    Everyday Life and C are a must. I hope they don’t cut all that Ho Yay out of Deadman Wonderland. SHAFT being SHAFT… That Tea thing sounds awesome. Aaand… YAOI~ <3
    I'm looking forward to your first impressions posts, Scamp~

        The timing is perfect, specially with this Bill hanging over our heads ain’t it? Better enjoy the loli while it’s still here.

        Yeah, it looks pretty cute.

        I want homoerotic shows, not shows about ten year olds eating semen….

    Thanks for the outstanding chart! Spring looks like such a great season already. C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control looks to be the most intriguing, and I’m happy to see more xxxHOLiC and Maria Holic.

    Also, great line on Qwaser II’s synopsis.

    AZAZEL-SAN!

    Looks like Level E might actually have competition this year, assuming the TV series is as ridiculous and grotesque as the OAV.

    “I’m still excited for Deadman Wonderland and I’m hoping the Air Gear and Highschool of the Dead OVA’s are great too.” “My hope is that these series don’t drop ship since my disappointment with the ever delayed Hellsing is making me anxious as to what I might expect at this years Sakura Matsuri” Misaka says as she returns to watching TAMNIndex with a grin. Please let it be spring soon. The snow is getting to be a little much. ^^

        From what I heard this is just another dumb comedy and nothing really happens?

        Eh? No, the story is actualy well made. In the manga it’s more cuteness than echhi anyways.

  10. Posted February 27, 2011 at 9:24 pm | Permalink

    Lotte’s Toy are you kidding me? Didn’t they pass some kind of law that prohibits shows like this? The premise is basically = “10 year old girl must devour semen.”

    This is why anime get’s no respect.

      i don’t think it goes in affect until after this season.

        Suppossedly the manga is sfw and it’s veeeery cute.

        Sorta like Squid Girl with dick sucking. She WANTS to eat some cum, but no matter what she absolutely can’t.

      • mcm38
        Posted February 28, 2011 at 12:49 pm | Permalink

        Your true about the cute. And it’s not a human girl who has to devour the semen. A succubus sounds more natural I think. Funny thing is the succubus should be the one having a male harem, instead the only male char has the harem.

      • Posted February 28, 2011 at 3:45 pm | Permalink

        SUCCUBUS OR HUMAN, SHE’S STILL 10.

      • Posted February 28, 2011 at 5:25 pm | Permalink

        10 year old sucking dick and eating cum is not cute. If you think it is, then you’re a pedophile.

      • Posted February 28, 2011 at 6:09 pm | Permalink

        SHIT. I just found out that Rie Kugimiya has the main lead. Now I’m forced to watch this piece of pedophile shit.

        Ugh… I meant the manga itself is cute. It’s ecchi, but it keeps it cuteness till the very end. The merit may be very taboo and disturbing, but I didn’t say I liked the idea. It is just merely an interesting subject for an ecchi manga.

    • Posted February 28, 2011 at 1:34 am | Permalink

      …a manga can have cum and dick sucking, and still be safe for work?

      • Posted February 28, 2011 at 7:11 am | Permalink

        The premise is still disturbing enough.

      • mcm38
        Posted February 28, 2011 at 4:19 pm | Permalink

        There are many more disturbing manga. Incest, harem and rape. Almost no one says anything about these.

      • OHEMGEE

        rape, incest, and harem- really i only regard them as porn.

      • Posted March 1, 2011 at 5:46 pm | Permalink

        If you want a detailed reply.

        I say something about them when they’re turned into anime and appear on the season previews…well, with incest at this point I justt roll my eyes and go “WHY JAPAN WHY?”

        Harem…really depends on the age of the girls. Having been (and still am) a teenage girl myself, it’s perfectly rational for me for girls around 15 and 16 to be coming on to boys very strongly. We have hormones, and there does come a period of time (for many, in high school) where we go nuts and boy crazy.

        Rape is one of things over which I drop an anime immediately. But on season previews, no anime sits there and says “They were normal friends until he raped her! Now things will never be the same! Comedy lulz!”

        To be clear, my main objection with Lottle’s Toy is that she is ten. I understand that is some people’s fetish and they’d never do it in real life. But no matter how you slice it, 10 years aren’t suppose to suck dicks. It’s…um…going to make many people uncomfortable, even among anime fans.

        And you can’t pretend that Lotte’s Toy is innocent. You can say it’s nowhere as bad as you’d think, and actually quite cute, but it is what it is, and what it is, is a pedo premise. Komodo no whatever is is actually quite cute, considered touching, and many people like it. But it still has a pedo premise, and people are going to look at you weird upon hearing about it for the first time.

        But I also don’t object to manga I don’t know exists. ^_^; I don’t go look for manga to object too…

    There is a discussion going on about whether Lotte’s Toy has any merit….*eye twitch*.

    It’s days like these I love my obscurity.

      oh dear, the first reference to the ponies on this blog…

  12. Posted February 28, 2011 at 6:56 am | Permalink

    Sunshine’s heroines look older though.

    I swear I’m the only friggin’ person around excited for Danball Senki. CERO still hasn’t decided on the rating yet even though it looks like it could easily pass as A (it will probably be but if it somehow turns out as B…that’s just strange). BUT IT’S FREAKING LEVEL-5 DAMMIT. HOW COULD YOU NOT BE EXCITED. Also prime time show yey.

    …I was kind of excited for Sock Monkey too… ;~;

    Finaly God only knows second season is near. Only one month to go.

  14. Posted February 28, 2011 at 4:01 pm | Permalink

    Nothings looks like a good romance… *disappointed*
    Maybe that SHAFT thing…

  15. Posted February 28, 2011 at 5:47 pm | Permalink

    I say NO to Lotte’s Toy. I say YES to World’s First Love.

    Thanks for posting this!

    I’m definitely watching C: The Money of Soul and Possibility Control and the SHAFT one, but I only even got interested in it because I saw it was SHAFT … and I’m checking out a few of the others, I guess.
