Uchi Kyodai looks like something along the lines of Moonlight Mile. It could be interesting but it's also the sort of thing that tends to get passed over by both streaming sites and fansubbers.


Maybe so, but look!

Looking at the full list now, I hadn't heard about Gakkatsu! before, but it looks kind of interesting. I suppose it's not likely to get a North American simulcast, though.

Per the official site, the episodes animated in Flash, and are 5 minutes in length. Given that it is on one of the NHK channels, however, a simulcast seems unlikely. (Has anything on NHK been simulcast before?)

NHK is Japan's PBS, so feel free to enjoy a fansub without any guilt.

Except that NHK itself really cracks down on fansubs, moreso than any other TV station...

Only two shows I can't think of have been simulcasted that I can think of off the top of my head -- Phi Brain and Giant Killing. In both cases, I don't think it was NHK themselves pushing the simulcasting either, but another company.

Edit: Geh, I didn't see that someone else answered this.

Dusk Maiden of Amnesia and Fate/Zero have my attention this spring!!! Smile

The gloomy girl in Dusk Maiden is so enthralling by her design. I wonder who has drawn her but the animation and character design so far seems superior to most things recently made. Smile Spring is good this year!

Dammit, this guide's feature on Zombie Deskcarr's second season made me interested in getting the manga....except Yen Press has rated it M, so I can't buy it (I'm 16).

God f*cking dammit.

Not trying to make waves here but zetmen, and accel world both aired April 1st, and accel world released episode 2 already and its still only April 3 so please tell the poorly informed writer who posted the spring line up of anime in anime spot light spring 2012 to either learn Japanese to get the company announced premiere or don't both posting premiere dates. By the way zetman episode 1 was awesome,
And accel world from first impression is a win or lose depending on the direction they take the story, they could follow the manga or go off and try strengthing the story so it's not a hit and miss fan series(50%like it 50%dont like it).

Who else read the synopsis for Shiba Inoku-san and immediately thought of this?

I'm most excited about the new Lupin series, but Space Brothers and Jormungand also look interesting. Morbid curiousity (and 80's-tastic character designs) make me sorta want to se Nazo no Kanojo X.

Spastic Minnow did in the Preview guide thread. I'm ashamed that I didn't. Bad nineties kid! BAD!

If you add Kids on the Slope and perhaps pull back a little on Space Brothers (now with 7 locations across the tri-state area!), I agree entirely.

the first two EPs of Accel World were pre-Air. Just like Fate Zero(S2)'s first two eps already showed. The different is nobody can pirate Fate Zero and put it online.

Is it me or are the lineups getting worse and worse by the year, i can barely see two shows this spring that have anything new to bring to the table that we haven't seen ten times already Sad

Maybe i´m getting to old or something.. But if this continues anymore i´m gonna have go out and buy an old VCR player to at least have something chalenching to watch.

I'm really looking forward to Hyouka because:
  • It's KyoAni.
  • The VA cast is excellent.
