Here's a link to ANNs Winter 2012 Previews ...

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/feature/spotlight2012q1/

So far I've gotten interested in the following ..

Another - Feels like When they Cry .. spooky High School story.
Brave 10 - Typical Battle anime.
Moretsu Pirates - Girl takes over Pirate ship once her father dies.
Recorder To Randeseru - Young kid looks like adult. Plays the flute.

Another anime that is coming in February is Thermae Romanae. I've read the manga or this and it's pretty funny and has an interesting premise. A Roman architect of baths time-slips to modern Japan and learns about Japanese Baths.

Anyway ... Im definitely pleased with this season's set of anime. Last Season was mainly dreadful.

What are you watching?

Currently watching Moretsu Pirates.  The staff behind it was enough to pique my interest.  With only two episodes into it, I'm definitely wanting to watch the rest of it to see where it goes.

Also watching Listen to Me Girls, I'm Your Father!, it's something I started out of boredom.  Not sure if I want to continue it.  I feel that it's kind of weak, so I'll probably give it a few more episodes before I decide to drop it or not.

There are others for this season that I'm simply waiting to watch as I'm catching up on series I've been meaning to watch as well as keeping up with from 2011.

I've been watching much more anime these days ..

Moretsu Pirates - Kinda got bored with it
Another - Kinda got bored with it
Recorder and Randesell - Got bored .. same joke over and over
Poyopoyo - Still kinda funny when I need an anime fix

What I am watching regularly .
..

- Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? -Part 2 - It's getting a little repetative but still fun.

- Hyouka - Interesting kind of mystery episodes ... we'll see where this goes.

- Space Brothers - Kinda funny .... slice of life. My wife and I watch this.

- Nyarko-San - My favorite so far. Not only is it funny ... the Lovecraft homages are clever. How can you not like the Chthulu mythos in the form of anime. The Creeping Chaos was always my favorite Smile

- Kids on the Slope - I read a good review of this and decided to give it a try. I like it so far ... nice slice of life anime.

I tried Polar Bear Cafe and it just didn't keep my interest. Also, thought I love the Mysterious Girlfriend Manga that anime was too over the top with the drool tasting ... somehow the manga does a better job of not making it creepy. I know that sounds odd but ..

Anyway ... what are you all watching these days?
