Not really interested in the next haremish/ecchi shenanigans that Japan has to offer, but looking forward to the Spotlight and the Preview Guide, since most of the shows I'm watching are ending and I'll need new stuff to fill up my schedule

I feel spoiled by the winter anime with Minami-Ke Tadaima, Kotoura-San and Tamako Market (three series is usually the maximum I care to follow at any one time). There's nothing coming up I feel the same level of excitement for, though I will probably watch the latest Railgun series even though I already read most of the Sisters arc in the manga.

Es gibt nichts aber jetzt bergab
Ex scaenā, in reālitātem

Time for the Soap Opera that is the anime spotlight to begin. I wonder what show will spark heated discussions this time around?

(I can't remember if the German is perfect, shit)

I read a little bit of the Henneko manga and it was pretty decent.

spoiler[People wish to the stone cat, which will grant it by taking away the undesired quality and giving it to some one else. Youto wanted to be more upfront about his desires, so he wished away his facade. Tsukiko was always way too expressive and easy to read so she wished that she wouldn't be like that anymore. In your standard "careful what you wish for" situation, the wish works too well. Now Youto can't stop saying all the perverted stuff on his mind and Yukiko can't show any emotions at all. They work together to return things to normal.]

So it certainly has more of an actual plot than most rom-coms.

We could easily avoid all that if some people would be a little less negative about the new shows. Or atleast word their displeasure in a more civil way than just "Oh great another shit fanservice show!"

Anyways, yeah, Oreimo 2 is something to look forward to, especially since it's going to complete the story. As okay as I am with incest, I'm really against a Kirino/Kyosuke ending...

But the histrionics that follow are always so much fun to watch.

HenNeko looks very interesting. It will be interesting to see who gets it: Funimation or Sentai?

I suspect that Zac will give a Boobs rating to Samurai Bride and Oreimo 2 will also include drama because of its pseudo-incest vibes(you just know that spoiler[they will likely turn out to be not blood related] (not an actual spoiler just speculation)).

Depending on what Crunchyroll streams, I could have 8 or 9 series that I'll follow(I will of course watch Oreimo 2 on Crunchyroll)

Laughing Now that's writing, folks. Looks like a cute show, I'll give it a chance.

Honestly, I'm not expecting much from "The Hentai Prince and the Stony Cat". I've read the manga and imo so far, it is mediocre. However, I am curious on how the series will be adapted.

Haha, finally, a guy who speaks his mind all the time and a girl who takes everything in stride. All with an idiosyncratic cute aesthetic. I'll definitely be watching

Very much looking forward to Hentai Prince. Can't believe the spotlights are beginning already; where did the winter season go?
