As the New Year fall upon us in another month and I have no anime to blog about due to delayed releases, I suppose I can work on the brief Winter Preview and plans for a Let’s Play of a certain game. (Image Source)
Amagami SS + Plus
Oh boy, it’s another season of our favorite harem anime involving the lovable male lead, Junichi. Although I found the first season rather enjoyable, some of the arcs were kind of disappointing, especially Rihoko’s arc. How dare they leave her Friendzoned forever?! Either way, I assume that they are expanding a bit more on each girl’s arcs as they have a new director. If this ends up being a retelling of the first season, it would become a disappointing experience.
Tantei Opera Milky Holmes 2
Needless to say, the first season of this show was an unexpected gem in 2010 mostly because the characters were really enjoyable along with the hilarious situations. The second season is probably more of the same, except now the arch-villain, Mori Arty takes center stage. I can only wonder what schemes she is up to.
Aside from these two shows, I won’t watch anything else considering that I haven’t watched Bakemonogatari and therefore I will have no clue on what happens in Nisemonogatari, although I will watch the former in the future. Not only that, Fate/zero goes on haitus until spring once the first half finishes. So pretty much this is what I have planned for the winter season and it’s subject to change.

Idolm@ster 2 Blind Let’s Play
As mentioned earlier in my posts, I planned on obtaining a copy of Idolm@ster 2 for Christmas as it finally made it on the Playstation 3 and that the anime sparked a lot of interest to play the game. Although my sister questioned me for buying it since she thinks that it’s a dating sim, I plan on making a blind let’s play of the game.
If you don’t know what is a Let’s Play, it’s an activity where people record their gameplay along with their commentary and upload it to the Internet. As long SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) doesn’t pass, you get to see me producing my first unit with the lessons, promotions and stuff once I get the game. However, I won’t include the communications since I need time to decipher the Kanji and get what they said (yes, my Kanji skills are horrible). Once I finish Genki II and become confident enough, I will include this in future playthroughs.
On the other hand, I’m not sure whom I should pick in my first unit… I’m planning on Takane, Chihaya and Yukiho, but that could change… ¶
