After what has been a very long while, we’re getting a season that has us super excited! Of course, with conventions, our intense blogging load and what not, we haven’t really had the time to put together an epic Spring Preview this season. Instead, we’ve listed the series we’re going to be watching and the series that we’re confirmed on blogging.

Have a look and sound off in the comments if you’re going to be watching any of the shows we are or something totally different!


Ao No Exorcist

Studio: A-1 Pictures


Action, Fantasy, Supernatural

Length: 25 Episodes

Air Date
: 17th April 2011

Hype Meter
: 95%

Blogged By: Setsuken [Coming Soon!]

Synopsis: This world consists of two dimensions joined as one, like a mirror. The first is the world in which the humans live, Assiah. The other is the world of demons, Gehenna.  Satan is 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? (Taken from MyAnimeList)

Why we blog it: Demons? Awesome looking animation and effects? God this series looks cool. My only concern is that A-1 Pictures is doing this and given their track record with Anime like Persona TS and Togainu…. Yeah. Still, the plot synopsis for the series and its numerous commercials has me VERY intrigued.


Deadman Wonderland

Synopsis: Ganta Igarashi has been convicted of a crime that he hasn’t committed, and sent to a new, privately owned and operated prison, where the inmates are the main attraction in a modern day twist to the gladiatorial coliseums of ancient times. Throw in a healthy dose of weird little girl, some new-found super powers, and a little conspiracy theory, and you have Deadman Wonderland.. (Taken from Onemanga)

Why you Watch: Sounds like one of the more interesting shows of the season and setsukan tells me that the manga is pretty damn interesting as well. Hit me baby, give me my Deadman Wonderland!.

Synopsis: The continuation of the Gintama series that was put on hold in  2007. 

Why you Watch: HELL YES! I was so damn sad at the Gintama anime series ending, especially when the next arc the manga tackled was one of the best. Now the series is resuming, and we’ll get one of the best action comedy series again! I cannot wait to be watching Gintama every week and blogging it!

Synopsis: Set in a slightly futuristic world where Earth has been invaded and is at war with aliens from another dimension called the Nova, the story follows the adventures of a Japanese boy named Kazuya Aoi who enrolls for training at a special school for genetically modified girls called Pandoras who battle the aliens, and their male partners, called Limiters, who use a special power called “freezing” to limit their opponent’s mobility. The protagonist makes the acquaintance of an unusual older girl named Bridgette L. Satellizer who appears to be the most powerful Pandora in her class, but has not yet chosen a male partner to be her Limiter, and in spite of the warnings of all his friends, he decides to be her Limiter.

Why we blog it: I first got to know of Maria Holic after I saw it in the season chart and went “This…looks interesting. How come I havent heard of this before? I wanna watch this season 2.” So i watched season 01….fell in love with the OP & ED and allll the crazy that comes with it. Lets see if Kanako has any lucky in the new year to find her fated person XD

Sket Dance

Studio: Tatsunoko Productions

Type: TV Series

Genre: School, Shounen

Length: ??

Air Date: 7th April 2011

Blogged By: Hanon [View Blog]

Hype Meter: 90%

Synopsis: The story focuses on the misadventures of the “Campus Support Group” or “Sket-Dan”, of Kaimei Gakuen, a club devoted to solving any and all problems brought to it by the staff or student body for the general improvement of campus life. Due to its general lack of meaningful assignments and unglamorous ‘group of handymen’ reputation the organization is treated with widespread contempt and it is composed of only three members. (Taken from Wikipedia)

Why You Should Watch: I read the first chapter sometime half a year ago and it actually really surprised me to see that an anime was coming out for it so soon! The story revolves around a club that takes requests to help people (reminds me of Ookami-san). I believe that this series is going to be episodic but that’s alright with me. I sorta need that new stuff every week. I expect good things to come from this anime, hopefully it doesn’t mess up 🙂
