So, now that we’ve established the fact of the awesome winter season’s sheer awesomeness, I’m pleased to present my complete viewing list for this awesomely awesome season.
But Diego, Diego! How can you possibly go through this list and keep up with ongoing series? Fret not, my friends. Word on the street is that the Big Scientist Guys who control the world’s clocks are adding a whole second (!) to 2008, which means that I’ll have more than enough time to burn through the backlog accumulated from the fall and earlier seasons – leaving me with a clean slate for the awesome winter season.
Bring it on, I say! Bring it on!
Okay, seriously now, the winter season sucks. Always has, always will. There are a few other shows I may or may not try out (such as Genji Monogatari Sennenki), and of course I’ll do my usual harvest of OVAs/ONAs (including fresh installments of ongoing series like Eve no Jikan), but other than the continuing exploits of Nyanko-sensei & Kid the coming season has utterly failed to pique my interest.
If you’re putting together your own viewing list, I can recommend the following sites for reference purposes.
hashihime – Loads of information and links to official sites.
j1m0ne’s blog – Probably the best seiyuu-oriented winter season guide out there.
THAT Animeblog – They’re awesome. Enough said.
UPDATE (03 January 2010): Click here to read the 2010 edition of this post. Looks like Winter 2010 will be twice as awesome as 2009! (Which really isn’t saying much.)
