April Season Anime
Sunday, April 15, 2012



I'm ashamed to say this, but I think I'm losing track of the animes. Like, I don't think I have the time or capacity to be watching every single ones that come out. It's unfortunate, because I would be missing out a lot of great shows.

However, for the sake of this post, I've downloaded the more interesting ones. And had watched at least 1~2 episodes of it.
  1. Accel World
  2. Acchi Kocchi
  3. Fate Zero
  4. Haiyore! Nyarlko
  5. Jormungand
  6. Kore wa Zombie Desu ka Of the Dead
  7. Kuroko's Basketball
  8. Medaka Box
  9. Nazo no Kanojo X
  10. Sakamichi no Apollon
  11. Saki Achiga-hen Episode of Side-A
  12. Sankarea
  13. Shining Hearts - Shiawase no Pan
  14. Space Brothers
  15. Tasogare Otome x Amnesia
  16. Tsuritama
  17. Upotte!!
  18. Zetman
Just watching 18 animes concurrently. Nothing is impossible! Not to mention that I have some left over from the previous seasons. So.. well, watching 20++ shows is no problem!

Alright, this season is really great. There are a lot of new shows, but about half or more of them are worth watching. Which is an astounding change from the shitty shows last season.

I'm going to split them into different categories and rank them because, it's worth it to do so for this season.




The best part about this season is the graphics. Or drawing rather, there are many shows with the drawings that I love.

 Not worth watching 
Shining Hearts - Shiawase no Pan


Now, to be honest, you can probably watch all of them except for Shining Hearts. I didn't highlight some of them in the best category because, it doesn't leave an impression. It's worth watching, but it's the kind of shows that you will only watch in your free time. 

Here's the ranking of the anime you should watch when you have the time.
  1. Sakamichi no Apollon (nice story about friendship)
  2. Acchi Kocchi (cute)
  3. Tsuritama (funny)
  4. Upotte! (cute)
  5. Medaka Box (funny)
  6. Zetman (action)
  7. Space Brothers (novel story)
  8. Nazo no Kanoko X (funny romance)
My favourite anime this season in terms of ranking

  1. Sankarea
  2. Kore wa Zombie Desu ka Of the Dead
  3. Tasogare Otome x Amnesia
  4. Jormungand
These are the 4 that you must watch. No joke.

I would probably write something about them some other day. Because it'll be too long and arduous to write about so many animes in one shot. Besides, Google's your best friend. Trust my taste in anime, you probably won't go wrong.

Oh, I just realized something interesting, there are no ecchi animes this season. Like, Highschool DxD kind of ecchi. The closest ones are Upotte!!, Nazo no Kanojo X and maybe Medaka Box.

And I'm pretty sure Shining Hearts is adapted from a H-game because of how much it sucked. Well, I've done my part, now it's your turn to venture into the 2D world. Fight on my comrades, into the world of unknown media fantasies.
