We have it here. Record shows the entry was created two weeks ago.

Anime I know I'll follow to their conclusion:
Usagi Drop
No.6 (both Noitamina titles... something which I am a fan of)
Natsume Yujin-Cho San (the first two seasons were incredible!)
Kami-sama Dolls (been really anticipating this one)

I'll Give these shows a try:
Kami-sama no Memo-cho
Ikoku Meiro no Croisee
Dantalion no Shoka
Blood-C (loved Blood+)
Sacred Seven
Nyanpire the Animation (looks cute)

The rest: Nura will most likely be picked up by Viz and not be streamed in my country
Uta no Prince-sama-- Maji Love 100% probably couldn't hold my interest for more than five minutes (no offense to people interested in the series)
Blade (zero interest in Marvel works)
The same goes for the others... they're just simply not for my tastes

Can someone tell me why a lot of people hate CLAMP's character design? Like, CLAMP is a pretty famous group and they did Code Geass's character design and I loved that show.

Being the fangirl that I am I just can't say no to watching Uta no Prince-sama— Maji Love 1000%. Its definitely gonna be this season's Starry Sky for me. Also since I watched the first season's of Nurarihyon no Mago and Baka to Test those are a must watch for me.

I'll do the first 3 episode test on these shows:

Kamisama Dolls
Kami-sama no Memo-chō
No. 6
The IDOLM@STER
Usagi Drop
Mayo Chiki!
Itsuka Tenma no Kuro-Usagi
Dantalian no Shoka

The older-boy-meets-young-female-detective is becoming a rather familiar trope (see also: Gosick


Er, in Gosick, VIctorique and Kujo are the same age, she's just that short (as is her mother).

Anyway, looks like I'll be watching most of the shows this season. Hopefully a lot of them end up on either Hulu or Crunchyroll.

My top 5 most anticipated for now look like this:

1) Natsume Yūjin-Chō San
2) Kamisama Dolls
3) Baka to Test to Shōkanjū Ni!
4) Ikoku Meiro no Croisée
5) Usagi Drop

Those and 11 or 12 other titles.

I don't know seems like weak tea so far...I'll wait for the ANN early season reviews before deciding on anything for sure. The only things that have my remote interest is Usagi Drop, Blood-C, and maybe the Yuri one.

Er, in Gosick, VIctorique and Kujo are the same age, she's just that short (as is her mother).

At least in the anime, following the dates, I got the impression that Victorique was 10 and Kujo 14. Correct me if I got that wrong, but she was born in 1914, and this is 1924, right? Of course, four years is not a huge age difference at all, especially for the time period, and besides, at least thus far they are more in the pre-romance, best friends stage, which is marvelous and heart-warming.

Yuruyuri... I like girl-girl romances, but the plot sounds slice-of-life-ish which is a very hit-or-miss genre with me. There's a strong chance I may be bored out of my skull by it, even with a good yuri romance angle.

Oh I meant I was posting that information since it wasn't in the preview guide and that (hopefully) people skimming the thread would be able to glance at it and see if anything about the show caught their eye, I wasn't trying to insinuate that the encyclopedia didn't have any information at all. There's just so little info that I wanted to put it all in one place and add in a few trailers for the fans who don't normally pay attention to the staff/studio/voice actors for the show.

If you ask me, the relationships will be quite similar to the ones in A Channel except this time the girls of Yuruyuri are pretty aware of the yuri tropes.

Animation Character Design: Terumi Nishii
I'm surprised to see this. Nishii was Yoshihiko Umakoshi's right hand man on Mushi-shi and Casshern Sins, so I'm looking forward to seeing what he does here.

Color Design: Kunio Tsujita
I was wondering where he was going to pop up next after working on The Tatami Galaxy. Makes sense that he would pop up on Ikuhara's next show. I'm more excited to see this show now that I know he's working on it too.

That aside, I'm looking forward to the two noitaminA shows, Blood-C, Idolmaster (to see how Nishigori handles it), and Dantalian no Shoka (only because Osamu Kobayashi is directing an episode in his trademark style).

I don't dislike all their character designs, but man I get tired of their "bishounen" dudes with incredibly pointy-chins type of style. I mean I know it's definitely a distinct design choice, it's just that it's distinctly ugly.
