Thanks to takashichea, Acura Max and BigHeart711 for putting this together!

Petiewon April 1, 2013 at 12:18 p.m.
Man, nothing looks particuarly interesting.
I enjoyed Oreimo so I'll watch Season 2. Attack on Titan might be decent. 
I've been waiting for a season 2 or a new Lucky Star project for ages, I don't think I could be any less excited for the spinoff we're getting. Completely different characters and a completely different studio.
 
Thanks for putting this list together guys.
takashichea moderator is online on April 1, 2013 at 1:07 p.m.

Since it's my fault for rushing it, I had a few mistakes.

Regardless, it thanks to my teammates , , , and the support of the community! You keep me guys working through Easter Sunday's night on this guide.

Stay tuned for the OVA and Movie guide! I will make it error free.

@Petiew:

It's all teamwork. I had the same impression from fall and winter, but I had some good ones like Robotics;Notes, Tamako Market, and Pet Girl of Sakurasou. You'll find something you like.

Acura_Max moderator is online on April 1, 2013 at 1:21 p.m.

@takashichea: Good work everyone! It was a pleasure working with you guys. I'm looking forward to working on the Summer trailers if you guys are up for it.

Lurkeroon April 1, 2013 at 2:01 p.m.

My favorite source for the list of seasonal anime offerings.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like there is much that would interest me this season. I will most likely just be watching the old regulars again.

takashichea moderator is online on April 1, 2013 at 2:17 p.m.

@Acura_Max:

Yeah, I got started on a few of them like Gintama: Kanketsu-hen - Yorozuya yo Eien Nare. BigHeart711 posted a formal trailer for Teaser Trailer #2: Persona 3 the Movie #1: Spring of Birth. When summer comes, I'll be there.

Halberdierv2on April 1, 2013 at 9:23 p.m.

so Attack on Titan, Date A Live and Oregairu for me.

I read Oregairu's manga, and I like it, and the same goes for Date a Live. Attack on Titan is just... I want to watch this.

Dream moderator on April 1, 2013 at 10:59 p.m.

I've been watching Red Data Girl the past few weeks. Anime looks like one I'll be sticking with for the season.

Beyond that, this season has quite a bit of uncertainty to it for me. I have 11 other titles I plan to look into unless ANN has a season preview to get my attention on anything else, though I'm not sure right now if they would be definite watches until I see them over the next couple weeks.

Oreimo 2 is on my radar since I cared enough for the first season where I want to see how things unfold. And while I'm a fan of Hayate the Combat Butler, I haven't been a big fan of Manglobe's recent handling of the series as they've been churning up some subpar anime-only storylines, so I'm approaching Cuties with quite a bit of hesitance.

takashichea moderator is online on April 1, 2013 at 11:11 p.m.

Series I'm looking forward to are Suisei no Galgantia (it's Gen Urobuchi's story), Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge, Karneval, and Joujuu Senjin Mushibugyou.

sickVisionz moderator on April 2, 2013 at 4:25 a.m.

It'd be nice if the main studio involved was listed. That plays a part in adding stuff to my mild interest category or boosting things into high interest.

High Interest: Attack on Titan, Battleship Yamato. Maybe RDG if it's by a good studio.

Mild Interest: Hayate no Gotoku & Aku no Hana.

I'd like to check out Otona Joshi and Asian Risshinden but it's super unlikely those will be streaming anywhere and even if I was willing to go fansub, I doubt anyone would bother to sub it.

takashichea moderator is online on April 2, 2013 at 2:15 p.m.

@sickVisionz:

Okay, I will list them in the future. I finished the OVA and Movie parts yesterday, and I'll add the studios to them.

Edit:

Thank you for your suggestion.

sora_thekey moderator on April 3, 2013 at 7:04 a.m.

A second season to A Certain Scientific Railgun?!? COUNT ME IN!

It is interesting to realize that there hasn't been a MLP Japanese dub until now... Also, how does an anime based on a Dating sim work???

shelson April 3, 2013 at 12:04 p.m.

I expect great things from Attack on Titan and Flowers of evil

Also Gargantia and Valvrave are mildy interesting

Otona Joshi is a project of 4 episodes of "Josei" anime, one of them aired about 2 or 3 years ago, now they aired the last 3, i don't know about any official release, but they were already released by fansubs.
