List v2

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
Jinrui wa Sutai Shimashita - Will only watch if I'll be editing it for EveTaku
Campione! - Not really my cup of tea so it's only a possibility right now.
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.

Will watch because it is a sequel/prequel:
- Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon
- Dog Days
- Rinne no Lagrange
- YuruYuri
- Hakuouki: Reimei-roku


Movies (if it ever gets subbed):
- Blood-C: The Last Dark
- Toshokan Sensou: Kakumei no Tsubasa
- Berserk II
- Rurouni Kenshin: Shin Kyoto-hen
- Nanoha movie
- Fairy Tail

New additions (as long as it is funny and not overly fanservice~y, it will do. Anything else, will need to get a feel):
- Sword Art Online > everyone's hyping over it, so there you go
- Kokoro Connect > seems like an interesting premise
- Joshiraku > internet says it's humor based
- Binbou-gami ga!


Too many OVAs to list, so I'll just exclude from the above. Basically if it is related to an anime that I have watched, I'll just pick it up.
Supporting:
  • Bakemonogatari: Oshino Shinobu ♦ Sengoku Nadeko ♦ Senjōgahara Hitagi
  • K-On!: Akiyama Mio ♦ Nakano Azusa ♦ Hirasawa Yui
  • Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai: Kashiwazaki Sena
  • Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?: Eucliwood Hellscythe
  • Haiyore! Nyaruko-san: Nyarlathotep
  • Kyōkai no Kanata: Kuriyama Mirai

  • Mondaiji: Kurousagi

It was more fanservice than I thought, but it's otherwise as good as I expected it to be (based on descriptions alone). Will definitely follow this one more.

Not planning to watch a lot this summer, need to prepare myself for fall season anime!!!!!!! :P

- La Storia Della Arcana Famiglia
- Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita
- Chouyaku Hyakusin Isshu: Uta Koi.
- Hakuouki Reimeiroku (need to pick up where I left off on season 2 first, though.)
- Natsuyuki Rendevous

Hmm. I'd been planning for long time to watch Moyashimon but it never happened. Someday I'll get to it, someday...

I'll probably watch less anime than expected because I might forget the carry overs from last season.

Tari Tari Ep. 1Show
Okay. Reflectia was in there. You don't know how much I freaked about that. I ended up singing along half the time before realizing how I knew that song LOL~ And all the characters are pretty interesting and cute :3 Konatsu is cute too. Haha, I love how she just realized that everyone was staring at her sing at the end lol. But the song was cute :] I think I'll enjoy this a lot.

Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita Ep 1Show
Story told through the heroine's perspective as a Liaison between humans and fairy.
Village is faced with a mass shortage of materials.
Strange activities began to unfold and the heroine goes to investigate it with her assistant and grandpa.

Not really sure what I just watched, but I like it and will continue with the anime.
episode rating:8/10

Tari Tari Ep.1Show
Ooh, I'm already loving this one, and like Shira-tan said, Konatsu is cute!~
And lol at the True Tears op choir-version. XD
Campione Ep.1Show
I could start ranting but I'll keep it short.
2 words: Not again...! :onion28:
Arcana Famiglia Ep.1Show
First of all, awesome OP is awesome! XD
And Lolz Luca=Gilbert? I'm already liking him~
The plot itself is also interesting, especially these Arcana powers.

Let's start mine-sweeping.

Resisted: "Chitose Get you!!" due to lack of time.
It seems that Estetica is heavily fan-serviced, like Queen's Blade. There is even a collaboration promo video that proves this.

TARI TARI - Episode 1Show
First off, Reflectia <3 (I'm sure many people noticed that).
The OP and ED were really awesome, too~
I really like Miyamoto because of her energy and cheerful personality.
This seems like it's going to be the music version of Hanasaku Iroha (also by P.A. Works) which may interest me more since I wasn't really into the whole "working at an inn" thing.
Really good start for TARI TARI!

Tari Tari 1Show
That was the fastest I've gotten attached to a cast since Chihayafuru. I have high hopes for this series.
Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita 1Show
That was...amazing. I'm not really sure what to think about it yet. It's set in the distant future, after the world's resources have been all but depleted, and it follows the story of a village trying to survive and find meat to eat rather than processed bread and crap. Some outrageously random stuff out of nowhere too. I'm interested.
