Ahh, that's the Hanekawa arc, yes? That was quite entertaining. But Nadeko and Senjougahara will always be my favorites~

They're been releasing the lists too early lately... being too early means a lot will change on latter versions of the chart, and heck, winter shows barely starts, so prefer to focus on the current ones.

Sankarea looks like it'll be a Hitose-feel anime, and the Saki seems to be a prequil show.

Other than the season 2's/Movies/Specials, nothing else looks interesting.

Let's focus on this season first shall we?
Rinne no Lagrange Ep. 1Show
Madoka rescues a girl from drowning. It gave me an idea that she wants to help people in trouble. Madoka's uniform goes missing and some girl returned it to her. Madoka meets the girl again and that her name was Lan. Lan asks Madoka to pilot a robot of some sorts from an offshore base. Later, a robot from outer space attacks the base. Madoka pilots the robot aircraft and defeats the enemy robot by using a german suplex.

Will this be something like I've seen before? Most likely it will be a generic mecha anime.

For every Madoka, there has to be Kyuubey which was said by one of my online friends which made me laugh.

From the synopses, it sounds more like idolmasters meets gundam (robotech?) Space-based, not earth-based like I think xeno was

Since it's 2012...
Hoshikaka Ep. 13Show
Daigo, Kazuma's friend, becomes POV this time.
And he makes someone angry... twice!
First, by saying three Hot Moms 'old'.
Second, by being seen by Kazuma as assaulting his younger brother Ayumu.
But he somehow gets his to-be-girlfriend... via game!

Saying about hot moms, there are quite a lot, including Daigo's.

I've been awful at keeping up with anime lately, and only managed to follow two shows last season (one being a carryover from summer). That said, I'll be watching Natsume 4 and will at least try to watch the first episodes of:

Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou
Another
Ano Natsu de Matteru
Kyousogiga
Nisemonogatari - if I don't watch it week to week, I'll definitely marathon it at some point

Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi OVAShow
Most bromantic foils I know of in most harem/romance series never get a girl during the course of the series. Well, chalk Daigo as the rare exception. Heck, this episode focuses on him!

Daigo spends the episode trying and failing to hook up with the other girls that Kazuma didn't pursue...with hilarious results. He even gets into a "not what it looks like" situation twice, first with Hina (earning the anger of her dad) and then with Ayumu (earning the anger of Kazuma).

Luckily for him, Daigo happily ends the episode meeting a girl whom he only knows through the online game he plays--face to face. Good thing for Daigo that it was a real girl--a buxom, shrinking violet meganekko kouhai, in fact--and not a "Guy In Real Life." Though that would've been a funnier ending, it's nice to see Daigo subvert the usual bromantic foil stereotype by actually getting a girl.

Milky Holmes S2 Ep. 1Show
Looks like I have missed some OVAs, where they started farmer life.
But... ruining it gets the girls really angry!

Yet the male protagonist is not out of PSP.

Rinne no Lagrange looks kind of boring. I haven't been a fan of mecha shows for about two or three years now, and the characters don't seem that appealing (Madoka balantly screams Mary Sue from her first episode setting). I'll give it a couple more episodes to see if it can redeem itself, though.

Kill Me Baby on the other hand looks like something that's similar to Nichijou, except not quite as funny but good enough. Looks a lot more appealing to me.

First winter anime 2012 Start!
Kill Me Baby Episode 1Show
It looks a bit like Lucky Star/Yuru Yuri/Nichijou, only the main character is a FREAKIN' Assassin!
The jokes are sometimes a bit lame, but in combination with the cuteness it quite fun to watch. The characters are very cute. I already took a liking to Agiri.~
The opening is a bit strange but I really like the ending~
And Sunday there is a whole bunch of new anime coming... I hope I can find time to watch them on the last day of Winter Break :s
