Let’s see…I’ll try this with a different style. But if you’ve read my previous posts before, it’s a style I’ve used quite number of times. Oh, but before that here’s the Spring anime 2012 chart I reference to.
My train of thoughts when I was going through Spring Anime 2012 chart.
- No way…I still can’t believe they make a Rock Lee anime (referring to Rock Lee no Seishun Full-Power Ninden)
- Another football anime? (referring to Ginga e Kickoff!)
- So cute! (referring to Arashi no Yoru ni Himitsu no Tomodachi)
- A basketball anime?! (referring to Kuroko no Basuke) Right, I was supposed to watch Slam Dunk during my Chinese New Year break.
- This reminds me of neopets. (referring to Jewelpet Kira ☆ Deko)
- Oh look, Thomas and Friends! (referring to Kikansha Thomas)
- Ah…Phi Brain has second season. That most likely means the first season was good. Put that to my waiting list.
- I might need to scan through some of the previous episodes (referring Fate/Zero S2)
- An investigation club. Ghost. Woooo. (referring Tasogare Otome X Amnesia)
- Shining Hearts. That sound familiar.
- Obsessed with zombie? Kiss a zombie? (referring to Sankarea)
- I’m watching this! (referring to Natsuiro Kiseki)
- Sakamichi no Apollon. I’ve read a lot about this.
- Saki! Wait, where is Saki? At least, the summary mentioned Nodoka. (referring to Saki: Achiga-hen episode of side-A)
- Mobile anime adaptation? What does that mean? (referring to Koi-ken!)
- Hmmm…seems like there are lots of sports anime this season.
Okay, that’s roughly what went through my head. So it turns out Koi-ken is a mobile game so I guess that’s what it meant. I thought for a moment that is going to be an anime released via mobile apps on Android, iOS and WP7 platforms. Seriously.
Once again, like Winter 2012 list, the anime series or at least the summary written aren’t very exciting for me. I know there are a few titles that will catch the attention of others, especially the sequels. My rule of thumb is to never watch a sequel if I haven’t watched the first season. Nevertheless, I was able to pick up a few.
Saki: Achiga-hen episode of side-A
Honestly, I enjoyed Saki. I always joked about “Haitei Raoyue”, Koromo’s favorite move. A little overdramatic when she played the move but I’m okay with it. I don’t know what to expect of this except that I know I wouldn’t be seeing familiar faces all the way. I’m gonna just treat this as another mahjong anime, independent of the original Saki. I’ll just have to see what is Saki without Saki?
Sakamichi no Apollon
Coming of age? Jazz music? I’m in. At least, that’s what I read.
I was alerted by Rei about this series, which is why I immediately recognize it when I saw the chart. I’ve already decided to add this to my Spring 2012 list this after watching the PV weeks ago. I’m a slice-of-life fan and this looks sweet so really, is there a reason why I shouldn’t be watching this?
Once again, I’ll go through as much first episodes as possible, but definitely not all, especially not sequels before my final list for Spring Anime 2012 is confirmed.
P.S If you don’t see any thoughts listed for a particular anime, it’s probably because I’m not interested.
