Welcome everyone! BigHeart711 and I prepare the best Winter 2015 Anime Guide for you guys and gals. Here are our quick impressions of shows that have caught our eyes. Stay tuned for the OVAs & Movies Guide that is going to hit this week as well as the Winter 2015 Simulcast Guide for the next 2 weeks. For the Fall 2014 leftovers, please see this separate thread.

BigHeart711

I have a whole lot for this season too. For returning shows, the second cours of Parasyte: The Maxim and Ronja, the Robber's Daughter,Tokyo Ghoul Root A, and the return of Durarara are up my alley. The new coming shows that are interesting to me are Assassination Classroom, Death Parade, and Maria, the Virgin Witch. The two series that I will view for just for fun happens to be Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE and Gourmet Girl Graffiti. This is a lot on my plate, but I hope I will find a good medium to this like I did for most of last season's picks for me.

Takashichea

I'm excited for this season. For returning series, I'm looking forward to Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Egypt Arc, Kuroko's Basketball 3,andAldnoah.Zero 2. Considering our shocking ending for Aldnoah.Zero's first season, I'm curious on where they go next. Jojo is a great Shonen fave for me, and I'm game for the fun that is in stored. For Kuroko's Basketball, I'm stoked to see Kuroko's team against Akashi's team. For the new series, I'm interested in Assassination Classroom and Gourmet Girl Graffiti. The Funimation blogs enticed me to try out this series because of its wackiness. I do love a good cooking show and hope Gourmet Girl Graffiti delivers that. All the cooking oriented shows I watched were Shonen based, Toriko and Fighting Foodons.

Please share what shows you are going watch this season and check out the trailers!

Of the new anime, Assassination Classroom looks like it might interest me, but I have gotten tired of so many things taking place at high schools. My "dropped" finger gets faster every season.

@Lurkero: Yeah, rash amounts of anime shows are set in school (mainly high school) are always out every year. I'm hoping Assassination Classroom doesn't blow either.

I hope you find something you enjoy this season. I know many folks who getting tired of seeing the same thing. Anime is infamous for recycling tropes and gimmicks.

Durarara 2, and Stardust Crusaders 2 have me super pumped!, Also Death Parade sounds pretty interesting,
Post by katmic (570 posts) See mini bio Level 10

Assassination classroom, Durarara2, Death Parade, kuroko; these three i will definitely watch. Everything else i will wait and see what people say.

Post by Kuma_From_Argentina (7,178 posts) See mini bio Level 14

The only series I'm 100% sure I'm watching are Jojo and Durarara.... the rest doesnt call my attention I may give a chance to Yatterman if the same guys that did Gatchaman Crowds are somewhat involved it could be interesting.

Post by Dekken (591 posts) See mini bio Level 20

LOL, the small thumbnail for Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! that I viewed in another site almost fooled me, for a moment I thought the protagonists were girls.

If I have time, I will probably watch Assassination Classroom.

Thanks for bringing this guide to us guys.

Full list to try from me since I didn't want to take too much space. I loved to try as much anime. I don't get tired easily for some reason.

  • Absolute Duo and Unlimited Fafner - Need my generic harem to balance out good shows. You know your harem shows are pretty generic. Hoping it's good.
  • Cute High Earth Defense - It has a wombat. I confused it for a koala at first.
  • Military! - Looks cute
  • Tokyo Ghoul Root A - I hope this is better than the first season and uncensored. The censorship wasn't as ridiculous as TERRAFORMARS, but I couldn't see a thing.
  • Kuroko's Basketball 3
  • Maria Virgin Witch - The title piques my curiosity. Yes, my mind is in the gutter
  • Saekano and Kancolle - just for kicks

Thank you everyone for checking out the guide!

To be fair, that is a problem with most industries. If your attention is majorly focused on one type or genre of media then you have it even worse though.

Ironically I will be watching Jojo which is filled with tropes, but it does the tropes so much better than most modern anime that I don't mind.

So freaking happy Aldnoah is back. But that might change in the first episode.

@Supreme Marvel:

I hope the second season of Aldnoah.Zero after that out of the blue ending we had.

@Marshal Victory:

Didn't know there was a film for Death Parade. If there is a legal link, I put it for folks.

@Lurkero:

That's true. Just that my teammates have gone through almost 3 years of anime guide makings. We seen a lot of new anime together. Nothing surprises us anymore except for a few shows like Samurai Flamenco and Aldnoah.Zero.
