A rather quiet season this time around, but still definitely a few titles I'm excited about. How about you?

The only show there I really care for is the new season of Hidamari Sketch. 
 
I'll still check out Dance in the vampire bund due to Shaft/Akiyuki Shinbo fanboyism though. 
Honestly, I don't actually find vampires any interesting at all...
giaon Dec. 1, 2009 at 1:11 p.m.
@okand: Nah, these days a good vampire is pretty rare. Alas!
 
I am curious about Ookami Kakushi and So Ra No Wo To though.
wwfunderakeron Dec. 1, 2009 at 2:31 p.m.
Might check out a few of them.
Agent_Loston Dec. 1, 2009 at 2:45 p.m.
Damn, is it really the time for the Winter season. Well I have no opinion until I watch the first episode.
Lanon Dec. 1, 2009 at 2:52 p.m.
Some interesting titles in there. My definite "I will be watching this" are Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu and Ookami Kakushi. I've always dreamed of battling my way up the school class system. :)  I like the idea of Ladies Vs. Butlers--and in many ways I'm reminded of Hayate Combat Butler--but it looks very fanservicey.  Chu-Bra sounds like it could be extremely funny if it's in the vein of K-ON! Dance in the Vampire Bund sounds interesting, but I'm skeptical of a Loli Vampire main character.

Chu-bra looks pretty damn funny, shame we can't hear anything in that clip though.
 
Thanks for all the info Gia!

Hmm. I definitely plan on seeing Nodame Cantabile's third season. Seeing the trailers to Duradura and So Ra No Wo To, they've caught my interest enough where I'll give them a shot. The rest, I lack interest in seeing due to them being the usual romantic comedy/ lolicon/ ecchi rubbish or they're sequels to titles I have yet to see.
Void_Wizardon Dec. 1, 2009 at 4:01 p.m.
I'm looking forward to Dance in the Vampire Bund. After all I'm reading the fabulous manga I'm pumped!
giaon Dec. 1, 2009 at 4:27 p.m.
@Newten: All the time, any time :)
 
@Dream: Yeah, a LOT of shounen rom-coms-- it seems like usually there are at least a couple more dramas, but then, this season is less than half the size of the fall season, after all.
Baku_Senseion Dec. 1, 2009 at 5:04 p.m.
DURARARARARARARARARARARARARARARARA!!!
metalsnakezeroon Dec. 1, 2009 at 5:31 p.m.
Looking forward to Hidamari Sketch,  Durarara!!, and Dance in the Vampire Bund
giaon Dec. 1, 2009 at 5:59 p.m.
@Baku_Sensei: Yeah, it looks seriously badass XD
Sonata moderator on Dec. 1, 2009 at 8:26 p.m.
I'm checking out Katanagatari love my ninja/samurai animesXD
DocHauson Dec. 1, 2009 at 8:37 p.m.
I see maybe three I'll watch, and another three I'll check out of curiousity. Considering the slightly smaller draw this season, it can't be that much worse than this current one, can it? Can it?
 
Guess I'll have to stock up on booze again before attempting to view the animu of Seikon no Qwaser and imagining the voice of Haruhi as a Russian loli. Then again, she did voice a dumb angel in Queen's Blade, so...
Konandaon Dec. 1, 2009 at 9:04 p.m.
Long post is long
 
Wow Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu looks mad Japanese and potentially funny if  seen with a group of people with a proportional increase dependent on the amount of alcohol consumed. Also is it just me or did the girl with the giant sword look like Nodoka from Saki? 
Chu-Bra oh great more fan service... next -_-

Dance in the Vampire Bund looks like it could be interesting or if it's just an excuse for a bunch of loli fanservice like I think it is than it would be quite boring and lame.

Durarara!! looks hella awesome. Someone needs to make a .gif of the guy stomping on the keitai in front of the three ganguro girls. That trailer music is amazing to.
I have no idea what is going on, which is expected from a series based of light novels from the same novelist that made Baccano! Although based on the title, the supernatural bit, and the headless biker a certain Celtic mythological creature comes to mind as being something of importance in this story, but that's about it.

Ya Hanamaru Kindergarten looks like it could be funny in a kind of cute way or really disturbing in a pedo kind of way. Either way it seems those little kids sure like to say boobs. Also what's the deal with the one kid's hair I mean when I was a toddler I was blonde to and than around 4 or 5 it became a light-medium brown but I'm pretty sure it doesn't work like the way her hair is and kid's shouldn't be dying their hair when they're that young I'm pretty sure.

Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 3: Owarinaki Unmei looks kind of interesting and also having one of those crazy convoluted storylines where they'll spend half an episode every 10 or so with just a bunch of exposition to remind you why X and Y are fighting.

Wow the art style in Katanagatari has me intrigued along with the music.

Ladies vs Butlers looks kind of cool although I think having to endure all the fanservice would just make watching it a chore. But I suppose that's what you do when you have a tsundere, clumsy gag tits, introverted lolibait, eccentric crazy girl, androgynous trap, and the super saccharine girl who smiles alot but still has dirty thoughts.

Hmm Omamori Himari looks worth watching an episode or two to see if it's any good.

Ookami Kakushi looks really awesome and with a name like Sly (or is it secret) Wolf that just sounds badass.

I think Seikon no Qwaser would be really fun to watch, while really drunk since even though it's so over the top ridiculous it looks like it takes itself very seriously meaning only beer goggles can find the humor in it.

So Ra No Wo To looks interesting in a that was pretty cool but what did I just watch kind of way.

when I clicked on the link to Weiβ Schwarz I ended up seeing a picture of Adachi from Persona 4 as a playing card and the first thing that ran through my head is   

  
  

  

 

particularly the part where Jeff and Vinny start trying to copy the way Johnny Yong Bosch says bitches as creepy raper Adachi. Ah I miss the Endurance Run. T_T

Anyway if I get time I think I'll check out Ookami Kakushi, Durarara!!, Katanagatari, Omamori Himari, So Ra No Wo To and Ladies vs Butlers. *Edit the video is Part 135 of the Endurance Run since it doesn't seem to be embedding right.

 It's pretty sad to me whenever I hear "OH YEAH, I"M GONNA WATCH THIS DRUNK" because I just imagine some loner sitting a dark room getting drunk watching anime instead of getting drunk with the bros and/or sistas doing something outside and coming back with a story to tell.............However that's just  me(plus I don't drink). Anywho, I'll probably gonna watch Durarara!!,   Ladies versus Butlers!, qwaser , Dance in the vampire bund(depending on the shaftness) , Ookami Kakushi,and  Chu-Bra
 
It be almost fate that qwaser, an anime were breasts are plot device, is being directed by none other than Hiraku Kaneko who was the not only the animation direct for dragonaut ep 5 (garnet vs gio) and for the beach episode in witchblade but also was on the animation staff for eiken and is origanal creator of cattleya from Queen's blade. If wasn't even enough uno makoto (gravion, witchblade, dragonaut) is also on broad as character design?  I watching this anime.

Most of the time when people say that they mean as a group event MST3K style but buzzed or relatively drunk. Personally with me if I'm going to watch anything that's really bad regardless of the medium (anime, movies, live action, etc.) or play a really bad videogame it will be with 2 to 3 other people or maybe a couple more and it would probably be in the vien of heading back from the bar or club to my place and finding a way to entertain my friends a bit, before we call it a night. Usually this means some commentary going on between us about the ridiculous things going on the screen or pointing out lame clichés. Although there probably is people doing what you said but I believe that is an inaccurate assumption.
animeboy12on Dec. 1, 2009 at 10:59 p.m.
@Konanda: Well, as long as your having fun I guess. Whenever my friends get drunk some crazy things go down so whenever someone mentions alcohol I usually  expect the same. I guess I can see where your coming from, still I wouldn't waste my time with bad( well, what I think is bad) anime but don't watch anime with friends. I hope however, if anyone is watch bad anime drunk, there are some friends there.
theswedishphishon Dec. 1, 2009 at 11:40 p.m.
I think Katsura Hoshino should call the staff behind "Seikon no Qwaser" and ask for his Allen Walker back.
 
Besides that, "So Ra No Wo To" and "Durarara!!" (which I did appritiate the "Spice and Wolf" cameo that was in there) do look pretty interesting, but it seems that the Winter season is still plauged with the Illness of "boobie shows" that the fall season had as well.
 
Hope for the best in spring maybe?
