I tend to watch 20+ shows a season, so I'll decide them all next month. For now, my no-brainers are:
Fate/Zero 2
Tasogare Otome x Amnesia
Hyou-ka
Sankarea
Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?: Jigoku Hen
Shining Hearts

There will also be some really good OVA's and specials like Amagami and Another. Also the Strike Witches movie.

The only show that I'll definitely be watching is Fate/zero 2.

Other than that, below are the list of potential shows that I'll watch:
- Kuroko no Basuke
- Accel World
- Zetman
- Sankarea
- AKB0048

The following are not yet on the chart, but appear to air in the spring according to MAL:
- Acchi Kocchi
- Ginga e Kickoff!!
- Hyouka
- Natsuiro Kiseki
- Tasogare Otome x Amnesia

I'm starting to watch many different genres so my list is longer than I first expected it to be. Nonetheless, it's still subject to change.

Probably the same, adding Kimi to Boku 2.
That's assuming I'll still be around by then..

Fate/Zero, Jigoku-hen and Sankarea. My only picks so far, and will probably stay that way.

I hope they don't wreck Tasogare Otome x Amnesia, it's such a good manga. Any fans of Another, you'll probably like it.

As long as it's actually better than Another, then I'll watch it. XD

After reading the synopsis on MAL, I thought it seemed SO similar to Another that I had to put it on my "Plan to Watch" list. xD

Ooh, I just looked up Tasogare's summary, and now I'm interested in it as well. It does seem a bit similar to Another, but hopefully they'll both divert from each other.

I think it sounds more like Ghost Trick. Both are similar stories about dead people trying to find out about their deaths.

This list is far from complete.
Definitely resisted: Kimi to Boku
Locked on: F/Z 2nd half, Korezom S2, Saki gaiden.
I have heard that Sword Art Online will be another April show, and feel interested. It seems that Accel World is a similar one.

By the way, in Real Life there are too many scandals of AKB48 members.

Definitely watching:
1. Kuroko no Basuke - Awesome basketball-anime, its manga is one of my favorites. Amusing characters, great humour, good story and exciting matches. Definitely recommended!
2. Saki Achiga-hen - I can't miss this, the original series is on my favorite list on MAL :lol:
3. KoreZombie Jigoku-hen - I liked the first season, so bring me more craziness, Ayumu&co.

Likely watching:
1. Accel World
2. AKB0048
3. Tasogare Otome x Amnesia
4. Hyou-ka

SAO comes in Summer as far as I know, and it's one of the shows I'm excited about since I've read the synopsis and the first chapter of the manga.

MAL has a longer list of upcoming anime but you kinda have to sift through it. From what's coming out in April:

For sure:
Fate/Zero 2 - After that epic cliffhanger (and almost nothing conclusive happening in S1) I'm anxious to see what's next
Sakamichi no Apollon - Made by the director and composer that brought us Cowboy Bebop
Hyouka - Kyoto Animation. Also an impressive staff
Another OVA

Probably:
Saki SS
Sankarea

Maybe:
Accel World
Tsuritama
Natsuiro
