Might watch list

Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru
- Might be one of the series I might not want to skip

Hagure Yuusha no Estetica
- I'm excited about this

Rinne no Lagrange II
- hopefully it continues where it left from S1

Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate
- Hopefully I won't be disappointed in this.

Dakara Boku wa H ga Dekinai
- Might be worth a try.

Dog Days II
- Mizuki Nana will sing the OP
- Horie Yui will sing the ED
- more dogs

Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon II
- Chihara Minori will sing the OP again

Tari Tari
- definitely will give a try. Nice art

Muv-Luv Alt: Total Eclipse (most likely because of Kimi ga Nozomu Eien)
- I hope Kuribayashi Minami or JAM Project will sing the theme song.
- I'm also excited about this.

Kokoro Connect
- Hmm, I'll try this.

Binbou-gami ga!
- we'll see about this

Sowrd Art Online
- I might like this.

That's it so far. I don't know if Blood Lad and Yuru Yuri II are confirmed so there.

I'm not sure if I'll pick up more but I'll catch up later.

Sword Art Online: Makes me think of .//hack, maybe a spin-off?
Blood Lad: Might be interesting, what's with the current undead interest?
Buncha Specials and things, To-Love-Ru Darkness o.o they're going to try animating that?

Dog Days: 1 wasn't anything special, no high hopes of 2 being anything more.
Jinruri: the picture makes me think of Yuno :p

Suprisingly not a lot on my plate for the summer months, maybe I'll actually have time to relax and get to work on my 'plan to watch' list then?

Definitely:
  • Moyashimon Returns - I'm appalled that no one has Moyashimon on their lists yet! Just seeing that sequel on the summer chart completely made the season for me, as it's one of the best shows I've seen on noitaminA.
  • Rinne no Lagrange 2 - Continuation that I enjoyed for what it was. Could use more drama and conflict though
  • DOG DAYS' - Cute and innocent adventure
  • TARI TARI - looks like a music version of Hanasaku Iroha. I'm in.
Will try:
  • Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse - Another attempt at me inserting some solid sci-fi into the season
  • Chouyaku Hyakunin Isshu: Uta Koi - Historical fiction that could be promising
  • Natsuyuki Rendezvous - Any josei deserves a chance, since I have yet to stumble across one that I didn't like or that wasn't instant gold.
  • Sword Art Online - Art reminds me of Guilty Crown, although hopefully the story and characters will actually have some depth in this case.
  • Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita - If only to try out the art style
  • La Stroria della Arcana Famiglia - Interesting concept and most likely good art
  • Hakuouki Reimeiroku - I enjoyed the 1st season, stalled in the 2nd, and will give this 3rd one a try. <3 Reverse harems in this era
  • Binbou-gami ga! - The premise is pretty cute and I have hopes that this will be a lighthearted comedy
  • Kokoro Connect - Familiar art style and decent production company
  • Arve Rezzle - Hopefully this will be an intriguing sci-fi

The only thing there I know I will watch without fail is Space Battleship Yamato 2199's second film. I liked the first film (what I've seen of it) and will continue to watch this series.

Preliminary List

Definitely
  • Sword Art Online - An anime with an MMO setting? Heck yes. Also, I think Metaler was complaining that Accel World didn't have serious consequences in its game. Well, here's an answer to that.
  • Kyouka Senjou no Horizon II - This was a given. First of all, I will almost never drop a series I start. Second, the first season turned out better than it started out to be.
  • Tari Tari - It's freaking PA Works. That is all. Let's just hope they don't have to animate anyone falling through crumbling debris...
Promo videos for these: Maybe
  • Hagure Yuusha no Estetica - This sounds interesting. Again with the video game themes.
  • Aruvu Rezuru: Kikai Jikake no Yousei-tachi - Yet another sci-fi themed series.
  • Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai - I can just tell that this will probably be an ecchi fest, but that means it'll probably be popular and might stand a chance at getting into ISML. It's way too early to tell, but I'm going to keep my eye on this one.
  • Kokoro Connect - I've never really been too keen on body swapping, especially between both genders. But it's being animated by Silver Link so I might watch this.
  • Campione! - A magic-themed series is fine too.
OVAs
  • Tales of Symphonia: United World Arc, episodes 2 and 3 - I'm really eager to finish this one. I hope Formula Subs actually sticks around long enough for this...
  • Tamayura ~hitotose~
  • Kiss x Sis - As always....
  • Persona 4
  • Code Geass: Nunally in Wonderland - If I'm not mistaken C.C. plays the Cheshire Cat. This should be fun.
  • Code Geass Gaiden: Boukoku no Akito - Basically a side story with different characters if I'm not mistaken. I really liked the first series so I'm hoping this OVA series will be fun.
  • Hyouka - If I ever get around to actually starting the series...
  • Accel World Special
  • To Love-Ru Darkness - Here's hoping that me not watching Motto To Love-Ru won't be detrimental to these OVAs.
Movies
  • Blood-C: The Last Dark - I watched (and didn't dislike) the series (which ended in a cliffhanger). Time for the conclusion (once it comes out on BD/DVD).
  • Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha: The Movie 2nd A's - Once again, I enjoyed how the first movie was handled.

Trying not to pick up too many shows (like the 18 I'm watching right now from the Spring 2012 season).

Will Watch
TARI TARI - Visuals look great, character designs (girls) are cute, it's seemingly a slice-of-life, possible romance. Really looking forward to this.
Kokoro Connect - Apparently it's a "love and teen pentagonal comedy". Great visuals and a few notable VAs made me put this on my PTW list.
Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate - Nice VA cast and seems like a good slice-of-life with romance.
Sword Art Online - Jumping on the bandwagon. Plus, the premise seems interesting.
Arve Rezzle: Kikaijikake no Yoseitachi - Trying to get into sci-fi stuff.

May Watch
Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru! - Will only watch if incest isn't present/it is not a prominent element.
Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai. - Probably going to be another ecchi comedy.

As of now, I'll be watching 5 (or 7) + 3 (Accel World, Hyouka, Kuroko no Basket) = 8 (or 10) shows next season, nearly half what I'm watching now.
Should be easier on my in terms of both blogging and trying to fit in the time to watch anime.
