[EDIT: Congrats on making a totally asinine first post that I cannot delete without removing the entire thread. This is not a contest to see who can start off the thread with a worthless "I'm first" post. - Key]

Aaaand it looks like it's time for another season of the soap opera that is the Anime Preview Guide on ANN!

Take your guess, folks! What show/topic do YOU think will cause 30-page long flame wars?

^ Probably OreImo, but in actuality it's hard to tell. Last season people were killing each other over MAOYU and it wasn't that big of a deal, really.

Loved UtaPri 2. After the boring, nonsensical stupidity that was Amnesia, UtaPri comes back with all the silliness, the supposedly-sexy-but-mostly-ridiculous coreographies and the hot guys (and none of them wants to drug you and put you in a cage, thank god). My love for reverse-harem has been revamped by 2000%. The addition of the three new guys is awesome, and I hope the world gets a shitload of threesome-ish doujinshis. I'm so happy I could cry.

Haruka just having a personalty already makes it better than Amnesia

I don't know, alternate personality Natsuki seems like he'd do that just for shits and giggles

UtaPri looks like something I could watch...but the character designs are "meh". It's got that "otoge" look to it and I've just never been a big fan of it. I like my guys to be more "moe"-looking, if that makes any sense.

We need an Otokonoko anime >_>

Sorry, wrong wording by me. Should've been "None of the potential boyfriends wants to drug you and put you in a cage to prove how much he loves you". I think that's what bothered me the most about that one. That they wanted to make it seem like it was "romantic".

Also, Natsuki's alternate personality (forgot name) sings one of my favorite songs from the show, so whatever.

I don't even have to stretch too far out of sequel territory to fill my plate this season, there's so much airing. Summer's gonna just like this too. I've gotta start on RDG soon, now that the HD is out.

Uta no Prince Sama 2 seems mediocre so far to me. I've watched season 1 before and everything almost stays the same so far with the exception involving some new characters. Well, some of the songs were nice I guess.

Regarding RDG: Red Data Girl, there's still many questions that invites answers and I am definitely looking forward to what's to come next. It definitely has potential and I remember P.A's other work, Another from awhile ago that invites questions from viewers as the episodes progressed with theories and analysis.

Rebecca's Utapri review had me in stitches. Good job!

I've seen the first three eppies of RDG and I'm really digging it. Imo, the first eppie was the weakest one, so if you like it, you should be pretty happy with what follows.

Seeing both Theron and Rebecca comment on Haruka's eyes, I decided to do an image search just to see what the fuss was, and OH MY WHAT THE HELL.

Won't be getting much sleep tonight.

On a less disturbing note, Red Data Girl definitely sounds interesting, will be wanting to check it out.

I've seen all of P.A. Works' TV series so far, so there's little chance I'd miss out on this one. Their series are always lush with detail and fantastic backgrounds. Another, for all of its problems, was still one of the most entertaining series of 2012. When a series truly captures my attention, I stick with it and the people who produced it. And throughout 2012, that director, Tsutomu Mizushima gave us two more excellent series in Joshiraku and Girls und Panzer. I'm keeping my eye on him.

It's already been running for three entire episodes? Wow, it must have gotten started early! (not that I can watch it, since I don't download. Really want to see it though...)
