Winter Anime 2009/2010
« on: November 07, 2009, 01:41:23 AM »
This is just a preliminary outlook (version 1), expect this image to change over the next 2 months. I did not make this image, it was compiled by the admins at chartfag.wordpress.com and information for this was gathered from various sources and such, listed on the image itself.

These are the potential anime scheduled to be released for the Winter Season, subject to change however and most likely will.

HAHA Holy crap looks like there's an anime that seems like a mixture of a war anime with K-ON! ahahahaha how much are they gonna reuse old plots?

Durarara!!: It's the same animation studio that did Baccano! and the same creator.  Yes please.
Dance in the Vampire Bund: I'm tempted because I could've sworn I read the summary somewhere and people liked it but...it's SHAFT.  I really hate SHAFT.
So-Ra-No-Wo-To: Whoa, Aoshi, you're right.  There's no other way to descrie it than war and K-ON!.  Sure, I'll watch.
Hanamaru Kindergarten: Unless I hear that it's somehow great...pass.
Nodame Cantabile Finale: I keep telling myself to start this.  I'll pick up the manga sometime.  So nah to anime.
Katanagatari: Another Nisioisin title turned to anime.  Still can't finish Bakemonogatari, probably because of SHAFT.  Hopefully this will be better. 
Qwaser of Stigmata: Image looked cool and so did the summary until I got to the "breast milk" part.  Ecchi?
Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu: Er, I dunno.  It's from a light novel.  Might give it a try.
Hidamari Sketch (with a bunch of stars in the title): Never watched the first so no.
Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 3: Three?  So it's a sequel?  Also, too many bishounen.  No thanks.
Hidden God: Image looks nice.  But is it a horror?  I'm kind of on the fence here...
Rose O'Niell's Kewpie: Tarako?  Scary.  No.
Omamori Himari: So...swordswoman bodyguard catgirl spirit.  Okay...  Eh, I'll see what others say.
Ladies Vs Butlers!: Nah.
Chu-Bra!!: Yeah, no. 

So it looks like the only show with exclamation points that I'll be watching this season is Durarara!!.  This season honestly doesn't look too bad, though.  I just hope I have time in my life for it all.

Just looking at the name Chu Bra (Kiss Bra?) and then its description, makes me want hold my head in shame at the writers for that story. Either they aren't gettin laid enough or they're your stereotypical Otaku that are fat, pimply, and wank to 2D porn every night... not sure which shames me more...  ::)

I don't think they're either, actually, but that's DEFINITELY the audience they're pandering to.  *nod nod*

The fact that the show will go on to probably become a cult sensation, and would likely find success if it made its way to North America, as well, proves that they're on the money when it comes to knowing what types of shows anime fans want to watch.

Nah, American companies really can't afford to bring every other anime over liked they tried to do in the past.  They're being more picky.  Unfortunately, that means they skip over the overlooked and maybe hard to market stuff that are awesome, like...Denno Coil.  Still gets no love.

Yeah it sucks when some of the better, underrated anime don't get chosen for licensing. However the anime industry admits using the fansub community as a way to judge which shows should come over. However the part thats stupid about that is sometimes the fansub community chose wrong anime to sub. So its a never ending cycle of not choosing the right shows.

Anime isn't the safe investment here that it was a couple years back, sadly, so licenses will probably be limited to big shonen titles that have a guaranteed following and marketability will receive official ports for a while.  >.<

Anime isn't a viable television presence anymore, with only three series managing to perform well in their time slots across the board (Monster and TTGL on SciFi, Bleach on CN,) and DVDs have never been especially profitable, since getting the spoiled-rotten american anime fanbase to actually PAY for the entertainment they claim to love is like pulling teeth.

Yeah, it's a shame that most fans just leech their shows online.  These days, I barely buy anime that I haven't seen on fansubs.  But the ones that I do and love, I do buy when they are licensed and usually the special edition versions too.  But the companies assume that none of us really want to buy anything.  I pretty preview everything through fansubs first and I can say that I buy dvds way more often than anyone I know. 

Get the hint already, companies!  Look for shows being fansubbed that actually get good reviews or that lots of feedback and positive talk on forums!

Actually, companies have done something pretty brilliant with regard to the fansub/DVD dillema.  They eventually just resigned themselves to the fact that most fans could get their stuff for free, which meant that nothing could convince them to buy DVDs.  Thus, they re-tooled their method of attack, and began official streams of new episodes with the approval of the japanese companies. 

Now people can  watch the episodes legally and for free, with just three commercials spaced out through the episodes run.

Of course, we STILL have elitist fans crying out about how they "shouldn't have to watch commercials, either" and clinging to how much more "reliable" their speed-subs are, but at least it's progress.

I've tried watching anime through Crunchyroll and Viz and a couple other legal sites but unfortunately they still have some issues.

1) Whoever is encoding the videos is doing a very crappy job of it.

2) Websites are horribly designed which causes stuttering in the videos. I have a very fast, very reliable system and the videos I watch streaming still stutter. I'm not the only one with this issue.

3) Places like Crunchyroll have us pay if we want to catch the anime the day after it airs in Japan. However a site like Viz for Naruto doesn't. Crunchyroll needs to get their act together. I have no issue paying if it comes with extra content but if its just for shows that air the day after instead of a week after, thats not worth it, especially since Fansubs are still subbing shows licensed by Crunchy. For instance Asura Cryin, I have to wait a 2 weeks for the new episode if I catch myself up, however Chihiro Subs is doing Asura Cryin despite being licensed. Now tell me who's actually going to watch Crunchy's version.

Now the fault here comes down on both Chihiro and Crunchy, but thats more than I want to type right now.

Crunchy roll isn't actually as legal as they like to pretend they are, so I find it kind of funny that they get away with charging for the service.  Only two or three of the series they stream are actually backed by official licenses.
