Spring 2014 Anime To- Watch List!
So, instead of finding animes by chance, I have decided to start doing my own researches and watch what I actually DO want to watch, and not through the fandom. BelIEve it or not, I hate missing out, so I decided to start including myself in the anime community...by force. It is hardly working, but...
I am not the kind of person to watch an anime while it is airing. That is a no-no. I only watch it after its seasonal run. However, I have decided to stop watching anime for a bit because 1) I have many reviews to catch up on, and 2) my headphones broke. So yeah. Considering that I am halfway through Black Bullet...
1-Bokura Wa Minna Kawaisou
I have a thing for perverted characters. The jokes, though old, always seem to interest me. These days, I have gotten into the whole slice-of-life genre considering that I am a hardcore Shounen/Shounen Ai fan. I love a dark, gritty story filled to the core with action but I also like to take a break from all that once in a while. It also sounds so cute and interesting from the synopsis!
2-Akuma No Riddle
I think it was the whole yuri/action/assassination theme that attracted me so hard. I have always wanted someone to include the yuri and action. Rare as they are, the feminine type shounen ai is always filled with cute girls and school. Even though this show is centered also around a school, the murkiness and obcure synopsis has got me pumped! Can't wait!
3-Selector Infected WIXOSS
I heard that this show, seemingly innocent, gets darker and darker as it goes on and plays about the characters emotions. I love these sorts of premises (Puella Magi) and wish granting. We know how well that worked out in the aforementioned show! I have not seen an anime featuring card games yet, but I DO love alternate dimensions. Want to see this play out!
4-Fairytail New Series: No need to explain this. This is the first anime that I have ever watched. I mean, despite the animation style change that I am not too fond of, I love Natsu and the characters. Can't wait for more dragon kicking butt action!
5-Mahouka Koukou no Reittousei
So far, some of the reviews I have been reading are saying that the main protagonist is too overpowered considering the fat that he was introduced to be weaker than then the other characters. I don't mind. I love Kirito after all, thus I actually like OP characters. What really sold me hear was Studio Madhouse! This anime looks really good, and magic?? On it!
6-Seikoku no Dragonar
I loved dragons! The premise and the sassy attitude of the main girl (promised, promised!!) is so refreshing. Dragons, Fairytail, dragon slayers, got the gist?
I--I don't even know why this is here. Studio Bones, maybe?
8-Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii
Read this Synopsis from MAL--
Nike, the fourth princess of the Rain Dukedom and one who holds the power to call forth the rain, travels to the Sun Kingdom to marry Sun King Livius for her country, despite her own reluctance. She soon discovers that the King, who conquered the world in only three years after his ascendance to the throne, is still a child! Furthermore, for trivial reasons, he has demanded that Nike call forth the rain...?!

and tell me if it doesn't sound sweet!
The premise of this show sounds so depressing and at the same time so sweet and hopeful! I am not a fan of slice of life, but I thought that I might as well give this one a try. The fact that the main character wants to be friends with a girl that loses her memories over ad over and over again every Monday and still vows to continue so...sounds incredible! I really want to see this play out!
10-Mahou Shoujou Taisen
Yeah, I don't know why this is here. When I look back, it doesn't sound so good...Maybe because of Gainax??
I LOVE Yuuki Kaji. After voicing Eren Jaeger, my favorite character in SNK, I have NEVER met someone with such a raw, emotional voice, who has some of the best rage voices I have ever heard! This sounded somewhat good, but what really drew me on as Satomi Rentaro. I really, really know the extent of Kaji's voice and he IS my favorite voice actor of all time. Simply incredible, powerful and unique.
And Oh, I am currently watching it...So far, the loli is incredible.
12-Hitsubi no Chaika
I saw and girl with guns, a promise of coffins, an actual 20-year-old character, gorgeous wallpapers, and Studio Bones. You gotta be kidding me.
13-Escha & Lodger no Atelier: Tasogare no Sora no Renkinjutsushi
I actually adore when a premise sounds as if humanity is in mortal danger. They are at the brink of some sort of destruction (YO, SNK). This wallpaper looks amazing, and I am a sucker for old-time attires, (Black Butler), and amazing character designs. I have never tackled the Alchemy genre (no I have not watched FMA, nor, FMA: B) but I am sort of skeptical. It is a game adaptation after all.
I don't know. Honestly, I am rethinking this one through... I have never heard of the Kangerou Project prior to this, and it seems as if I am going to have to check that out first before I tackle this show. I really like Shaft (Monogatari Series, Puella Magi) and, well, I am still hesitant though...
15-Date a Live I and II
This one I am a little skeptical about, because well, the premise sounded a little cheesy. I mean, stopping a walking disaster by dating her? I don't know, but the character designs looks really good! I mean, if it has a second season, and I still have not watched the first one, thus it must have some merit. I will try it after my priorities. We'll see.
16-Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizukin
I don't even remember how this got here... (tsundere)... bbbb---ut, yeah.
Some I am not sure whether or not I will watch:
20-Blade and Soul
21-Kamigami no Asobi
22-Mangaka-san to Assistant-san
23-No Game no Life (This one I definitely will. I was sold from the reviews...)
24-Gokukoko no Brynhildr
Anyway, this is all I have for today! Since I enjoy making posts like these, I will do a summer one also! I have just started taking anime seriously since Attack on Titan, and I am VERY FAR behind. I will go as far back as 2009, but since Code Geass, one I have planned to watch stretches to 2006, if a show is older than 2009 and is deemed really (like really good), then I will watch it. But, damn, my anime list is actually HUGE! My Iphone is screaming for help. Believe it or not, I don't expect to finish all of them. I have a feeling that I will be watching anime to my death, because, even through I am a rapid consumer, I seem to move too slowly. I feel so behind!! One day, Ill catch up!
