And a random InuYasha/Alice in Wonderland crossover pic ^,^
Now, it is time for the spring anime series/movies list! Seems pretty promising to me, because there are a lot of anime I want to check out. At least, far more, than the Winter season. Now, I’ll move into the list, and will leave the rambling part to the end of the post. Nyaaa~
3 highschoolers start a club called Sket-Dan, which is devoted to helping anybody, who has a problem. Though, the club remains unpopular, for some reason.Genre – Comedy, School, Shounen | Release date – 7.04.2011 Producer – Tatsunoko
I’m getting into Shounen too much, lately.. I wonder, why … ^^” But anyway…. I’m soooo watching this! I’m not expecting anything exceptionally epic or awesome, but it seems like a pleasant, slice-of-life anime, that you can just watch and relax. Also, a pretty good seiyuu list attracts me too. Like Tomokazu Sugita(Nova, Hideki, Kanata and my precious Takenagaaaaa~!) and Yoshino Hiroyuki (Firo, Kimblee, Heisuke-chan(he would kill me if he heard, what I call him -____-‘), Brief and my favorite nerd ever, Ox!!! catchy name, huh? :3). Can’t wait, can’t wait !!!! >3<

When I watched the first couple of seconds of the PV, I was like “Miyano Mamoru will be here?!” I didn’t even look into the seiyuu list oO” And yes, he will be appearing in Steins;Gate. As well, as Hanazawa Kana and Kobayashi Yuu. And this anime is a MUST in this season for me. The storyline seems interesting, the art looks pleasant and the music….. I just LOVED music in the PV!!!!!!!

Fufufufufuuu~ I suddenly remembered Angel Beats, how hyped I was about that anime, and how much I was disappointed in it. Well, I only watched the first episode, but literally nothing was able to grab my attention. You will probably think I’m crazy. I’m not saying it was bad, it just didn’t mix with me well enough. However, I am gonna watch this. The art is amazing, just as I’d expected, and I wouldn’t mind another positive slice-of-life anime. + a very promising staff. Itou Kanae FTW :3 O’tanoshimi da yoo~
Ao no Exorcist

Ordinarily, travel between the two, and indeed any kind of contact between the two, is impossible. However the demons can pass over into this world by possessing anything that exist within it. Satan the god of demons, but there’s one thing that he doesn’t have, and that’s a substance in the human world that is powerful enough to contain him!! For that purpose he created Rin, his son from a human woman, but will his son agree to his plans? Or will he become something else…? An exorcist?

I thought, I would check it out, but my interest is growing weaker. The art is just too much for someone like me to handle. I like cute stuff, but this is a bit overboard for me ^^” I’ll still have to think hard about this one…

I am going to check that out. I know, I will be killed for that but I want to watch something girly/sparkly/bubbly/stupid from time to time. + I love figure skating, so….. If this will have decent enough art, animation, characters that aren’t too irritating, then I think, I will watch this. Let’s see. )))

When I first saw this, I was like “Errrr….. ok.kay ^^” next one..” but when I looked into the seiyuu cast…. Nana Mizuki, Miyano Mamoru, Hikasa Yoko and other really nice seiyuu like Horie Yui and others. Then, I watched the PV. And then I finally reconsidered… We’ll see about this, then.
Hmmm…… I think, that’s about it for this season…. you must have noticed, that I didn’t publish all the upcoming anime here. That’s because I published series that caught my attention at least a little bit. And let me tell you…. that’s a LOT of series I have here oO” I’ll have to note, that this Spring’s list is GINORMOUS! It’s the biggest list I have ever seen. Well, I’m in anime community only for 2 years, and I completed only one full year considering the seasonal releases list, so that may not be so surprising. However… it’s still really big O.O
I would be glad to receive feedback! Please, comment and tell me, which anime will you check out or watch! ^^ Nee~??
