    Setting sounds like a hit or miss for me but I guess it's worth a try. I guess if it's a boom among the japanese people then there has to be some certain quality to it.

    My expectations are not very high. It is something I could well skip, if it does not get great reviews. I'm not really excited about the studio either, other than Elfen Lied I've never even watched an ARMS anime. The premise is interesting enough, though it does sound kind of contrived. I'll approach with an open mind, pending more previews and reviews at ANN.

    To give some idea of how much hype Maoyuu Maou Yuusha is getting in Japan, here is the page for the primary manga adaption. Check out how many spin off manga's have already been generated, in addition to the original novels.

    Does the fact that Savanna game was in the previous version and not in this one mean that the project has been either postponed or canceled or do you remember an occasion that some of the series skipped a version of the season preview?

    They probably didn't include it because there was no concrete announcement yet. All the info we have is months old and only stated that the anime will be released in 2012. Seeing as there's nothing solid yet I would guess chances are so-so. Could very well be delayed to 2013.

    OMG, Amnesia anime??! *nosebleed*
    I didn't know it's going to be adapted into anime! Though if I remember the past experience with otome-game-turned-anime, usually the plot will be *ehem* not that good. But I guess I'll give it a try.

    ...and why Chihayafuru S2's poster looks almost similar to Utakoi's poster in terms of art style?

    Here's the newest list, which contains what is seemingly all of the anime, which is more than was previously thought, plus OVAs and BDs.

    After taking a second look, I may need some convincing before watching Vivid Red. The director of Strike Witches and hot pants? Not sure what to think of this.

    Thanks!!

    Well, for the moment, next season I'll continue watching Psycho-pass. And for the new series... only Nurarihyon no Mago's OVA and Train Hero seem interesting for me.

    Let's meet up in the New World! Oh, ok, but I'm the one who's gonna find One Piece! Hi hi hi!

    "Now with hot pants" probably relates to the fact that the protagonists of Strike Witches are/were famous for not wearing any pants.....

    Anyway, out of curiosity I looked up the director: Takamura Kazuhiro

    He worked on quite a few productions from Gainax (TTGL, Evangelion, FLCL) and Sunrise, but it appears that was mostly for animation. Guess on that part there isn't much to worry about. Strike Witches is known for a rather weak story though so not sure what to expect.

    I'm definitely going to approach Vividred with an open mind, but also open eyes. While I enjoy fanservice as much (or more) as the next guy, if Vividred is moe girls in hot pants, but otherwise light on content, I will likely pass. Other than moe girls in bloomers, Strike Witches was a mediocre anime.

    So far winter is actually looking like a good season. Finding five potentially interesting series from the preview alone is high, at least by my standards. Usually I don't even find three to try until the ANN previews start coming out.

    Never watched Strike Witches but I share your opinion, hopefully it won't turn out that way

    I have to say that fall looked more promising to me and even though some series were a huge disappointment I still have six series I'm really looking forward to every week (Chuuni, Jojo, Magi, Psycho-Pass, R;N and Tonari). I'm still watching 11 series of this season in total, I believe I've never watched that many before.
    Winter has quite a few potentially good series though, so I guess the season could turn out pretty well too.

    I guess I'm the most pessimistic one here, then.

    Winter doesn't seem very interesting to me. I did notice Chihayafuru because I followed it previously, but among other new titles none really pumped my interest at this moment. That can change of course given how Fall titles I didn't consider before turn out awesome (and those I thought would be awesome fell behind a bit). At this point I don't have ones to definitely wait for, but I'll see comments once they are released.

    Compared to the other seasons, winter always seems to have fewer interesting new anime. Fewer new anime in general, interesting or not, seem to premier in the winter. Two or three good new series is really all I expect. Three of the four anime I started in October (Shinsekai, R;N, and Psycho-Pass) will continue until April, adding too many more won't be necessary anyway.

    KyoAni did announce a new series for this winter, Tamako Market, by the same team that created K-On!. I have not yet watched K-On (after S;G), but I'm enough of a KyoAni fanboy that I am definitely going to try Tamako. Unlike K-On it will be an original story.

    Guess you're not only the one. I'm also pessimistic about the next season's anime. Like niichan, I'm watching 11 anime series in total this season (I've never watched so many anime series before ), but after a quick look at the list, I only anticipate 2 anime (Chihayafuru & Amnesia) for winter. I don't know if later on I'll try to watch the others, but I guess it won't be many as now. I think next season's anime is not as heavy (genrewise and plotwise) as this season's anime? I used to think that so many dark anime in a season is not good, but it turns out they are more interesting rather than the more light ones.

    My updated list for the Winter

    definite:
    • Ganbaranai: No doubt about this one, I'm a huge fan of SHAFT and Shinbou Akiyuki. I do not expect to be disappointed.
    • Tamako Market: KyoAni is also one of my favorite studio's. Should at least be really fun and entertaining.
    Interested but not definite:
    • OreShura: Looks interesting, but it could also be generic moeblob.
    • Maoyuu Maou Yuusha: Also looks interesting, but could also be generic fantasy/action.
    • Train Hero: I need more information. The summery looks interesting, but not even stills are available yet. I'm not sure what to expect from a full CG joint venture between TV Tokyo and a Chinese studio.
    Maybe, but I have a feeling no:
    • Vividred: The new PV opens with a close up of a short shorts clad moe girl's butt. I have a bad feeling about this one.
