Looks interesting
Zero no Tsukaima F - Have watched the first three seasons, wondering what this will bring to the table.
Black Rock Shooter - Saw the OAV.
High School DxD - Sounds like a combination of 'Zombie' and 'Kamfer' probably going to end up watching.
Ano Natsu de Matteru - Sounds light + airy, and one of the characters seems to have a passing resemblence to Taiga.
Kyousougaya - Sounds like something playing off Quartet. Rie Kugimiya doing a voice doesn't hurt either.

New episode of Toradora?
Holy Knight - sounds like it might be something interesting
another .hack piece? Looks like it's going to have real world pieces too, and an art style that doesn't seem to fit the mold.
another Kenshin as well, haven't seen that in a while.

As normal, will probably look at any series that the site I stream from covers.
Jamie AB is open for business. How would you like your hare-brained scheme?

Did Louise just steal Index's "Walking Church" in that pic? :lol:

And is that Gyo OAV the adaptation of the horror manga done by Junji Ito? (*Views the Gyo page on TV Tropes*) It is?! Oh snap! :o

(EDIT: Revised with new version.)

Sure-watches:
- K-On! movie - Though I'd love to watch this alongside Hayate no Gotoku: Heaven Is A Place On Earth once both become available.
- Amagami SS+ - It's Christmas time once again! Hope Rihoko gets her proper ending...
- Nisemonogatari
- Gyo OAV - One word: GASHUNK! Not to mention it's done by ufotable, the guys currently behind the animated adaptation of Fate/Zero.
- Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko OAV - Since I already completed the series, it's now a sure-watch. Erio's moeness got me good. :arrowed:
- Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi OAV - Also completed this one (thanks to the exhibition match from Elimination Round 1), so the OAV is now a sure-watch.
- R-15 OAV - Another completed series, another sure-watch OAV. (Spotted another potential ISML 2012 entry in Sonokoe Utae, though I'm sure Narukara Fukune won't be far behind.)
- Steins;Gate OAV

Might-watch:
- High School DxD
- Black Rock Shooter - At least once I arse myself to watch the OAV/movie...
- Zero no Tsukaima F - Not for Louise, but for Tiffania and Tabitha.
- Toradora OAV - For completionist's sake.
- Rurouni Kenshin: Shin Kyoto-Hen

I think the season starts Dec '11 and runs through to sometime in '12, so it's technically '11

Some shows start December, but majority of the winter shows start January and run until end of March (1-cour) or end of June (2-cour). So I was always curious why people label upcoming season as Winter '11 not Winter '12. (still is) o.o o.o o.o

IMO, it should be Winter 2012 since I see the seasons like this:

Winter: January 1 - March 31
Spring: April 1 - June 30
Summer: July 1 - September 30
Fall: October 1 - December 31

I think by wrote, December is the start of the Winter season, Hanukkah is a Winter holiday/counterpart to christmas, and sometimes it's in late November, so I think it's just how you look at the calander.
I think I usually see TV seasons as Winter '11/'12 since it passes over the 'year'-line. I believe even schools do that, and some of them don't even start the semester until Feb!

It's early, but here's what I'm interested in so far. Pretty much all of the franchises and series I'm already familiar with except for Another.
But ANN had previously mentioned it and it sounded interesting. Plus Noizi Ito is doing the designs.

Early Preliminary List

Definitely

Black Rock Shooter
Zero no Tsukaima F
Nisemonogatari
Another

OVAs

Toradora!
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kira

Movies

K-ON!
Rurouni Kenshin
