Just the winter season, spring looks like it has alot of good gems

Only 1 or 2 shows caught my eye in the new winter season


I never dismiss any series until I've watched 3 episodes of it. Often I have to put up with 3 episodes of a bad show but sometimes I discover some real gems.


Attack on Titan is a pretty interesting manga, It's a Del Ray/Kodansha license in the US which might rule out Viz getting the Anime. Funi is still possible but I would give CR reasonable odds as well.

And yea I usualy do the same thing grey and not dismiss things but you can get a good sense by the pv's most the times, nothing really struck me like the lineup I saw for the spring

You're a better man than I, after 5min of the second episode of Bakemonogatari I'd had enough. I still don't get why everyone likes it so much.

I was like that at first too, but more so with Nisemonogatari, Bakemonogatari at least had alil more action to its story line... But i gotta say I just tried watching the 4 new ova's that came out acouple days ago and couldnt get past 5 mins without wanting to sleep..

the animation and art direction followd with the dialog is what gets people about that show.. It's kinda its own thing. More like a aquired taste ;p

All I can say is "different interests and expectations" when watching anything new (I like the Monogatari series and I'm enjoying Nekomonogatari Kuro right now lol)
It's best to give something a try before making a final decision
I don't think PVs should count lol

I think the OP could've made the title better like maybe along the lines of "Winter 2013 anime reception or "Winter 2013 anime impressions" and made the thread more of a first impressions of the season kind of deal but that's just my view lol

Watched the trailer 3 times... god that looks awesome. ><

Uh, disagree about the winter season though. Personally, I'm pretty excited for quite a few shows.

Trailer fails to excite me. But if it's your cup of tea then OK.

The trailer doesnt come close to filling you in on the story/background but most of that trailers from the 1st 3 episodes or early manga chapters. I'm mostly looking foward to this for the story

If i didnt know the story and watched the trailer i'd prolly just think who are the naked guys eating people

If you don't get why people like the show, then you don't understand the people, or you don't understand the show. Since you've only watched 5 minutes, I'd guess it's probably the show you don't understand. If you like your characters with depth, and you like intelligent dialogue, then you'll like the show. If a lack of interesting plot or action is something you don't like, then you probably won't like it.

But if you don't understand why people like something, you're probably just not looking. School Days is probably my least favorite show ever, but I understand why some people might like it. I don't understand why people like Girls Und Panzer, but then again, I've only seen the first episode. I'm not really trying to understand why people like it. That said, I'll probably watch a couple more episodes eventually just to confirm my suspicions, but even before then, I can make some guesses about why people might like the show. If a show has a pretty big following, then chances are, there are some good things about it that most people can relate to -- that's basically the only reason I put up with the first 50 or so episodes of Bleach.

Girls und Panzer had me with the Pink Lee.

Seriously though the appeal is two part.

a) they did a really good job with the tanks and tank battles and classic 'war movie' music. The War Nerds love it.

b) it's surprisingly better than is typical for the genre. It's not empty and trite like Uppotte! no one goes around pantsless like Strike Witches. (actually despite the short skirts I can't recall any panty shots in GuP...)

Both Girls und Panzer and Strike Witches were made by the same guy, so maybe he got tired of panty shots and pantless 15 year old girls? :D
But dont worry he goes right in between with Vivdred Operation, which had better be one of the titles CR picks up. It'll make me a very happy person aruyo~
