This year's been seriously long, but there were a lot of good and bad points within this year, so let's start enjoying the last of it by seeing what was released over the holidays now, shall we? Also, this guy here (Bigheart) is glad that the world didn't end on the 21st. That could've messed up everything.
My Quick Pick would be Steins;Gate because my teammate, Acura_Max, got me into Robotics;Notes series and its wiki project. He told me to watch Steins;Gates to enjoy the references that Akiho Senomiya does that cool persona with the bright red glasses. Plus, we did a Skal and Dr. Pepper thread for the series. I hope Steins;Gate would be a good and entertaining show.
My pick is Kobato because it's one of the CLAMP-related anime series that I haven't seen yet. It involves someone with magical powers that often helps people who were going through heartbreak, but has a trial of her own once she meets a mysterious creature. I hope it'll be fun once I get to it, but I'm in the middle of a Pretty Cure binge right now (Watching PC5 and Smile Pretty Cure) so It'll be a while beforehand.
...and now let's see which one of these you readers will choose! :)
