Once upon a time, there was a Prime Minister. His name was Jean Chrétien. He had a staff of office that indicated his high position of respect and honour. His staff was originally pretty lame when it was given to him in 1994, spitting out things like neo wrestling and oni. Suddenly, one day, in 1997, an evil wizard stole Chrétien’s staff and imbued it with magical revolutionary powers by giving it a ring with a rose crest.
HINT: THIS IS ACTUALLY A POST ABOUT ANIME»
Oh, hey. Welcome to February. Note that the first anime of this season aired nearly a month ago (Natsume, on January 3rd). Back in my day, they called me the lATEM@STER. Because I write posts. That are late. Hahaha. That’s not even a pun what am I typing
Here, read my season previews. They’re decent. And by decent I mean they’re not horrible. That is to say, they’re merely bad and/or mediocre. Just read those god-damned posts and come back here and read this god-damned post and like, just, damn yourself, god
Before anyone accuses me of espousing anime as an entertaining, interesting, and fun medium of communication, let me disclaim myself with a disclaimer that I believe fully fits the mood of this post.
[Disclaimer: ANIME SUCKS]
I wear anime sucks in my anime shoes»
So, what did I learn from writing season previews?
Rule 1 of writing season previews: Don’t write season previews after everybody else does.
Rule 2 of writing season previews: Do not write season previews after the previous season has already ended.
Rule 3 of writing season previews: DO NOT write season previews after the season’s shows have already started.
Rule 4 of writing season previews: DO NOT WRITE SEASON PREVIEWS after all the season’s shows have already started.
Rule 5 of writing season previews: DO NOT WRITE SEASON PREVIEWS AFTER THE SEASON IS OVER!
Rule 6 of writing season previews: Do not talk about writing season previews»

Woah, woah, woah. You didn’t think that that was the end, did you? Did you miss that ‘2012 Winter Anime PART ONE’ at the end of the post title? Or are you wondering why I’m using rhetorical questions in a post about anime previews? Let me first tell you that I am a master at rhetoric. Some people can’t even toric normally, but I toric over and over and over again.
In which I continue writing about anime even though nobody needs to read my posts to know what’s airing, especially since most things are already aired. OH WELL
I say 2012 Winter Anime Part One because I changed the 2011 Winter tags to 2012 Winter, and the 2010 Winter tags to 2011 Winter. ‘Wait,’ you might think, ‘What’s wrong with 2010 Winter?’ Nothing, which is why I changed the title of this post from 2011 Winter Anime to 2012 Winter Anime Part One.
Everybody knows that Winter is the last season of the year, right? Too bad it isn’t in the strange world of anime, where it’s actually the first season of the year. Actually, I was lying about that changing thing. My 2011 Winter Preview is still my 2010 Winter Preview. But now I don’t actually have a post called 2011 Winter Anime, because the Winter of 2011 is this Winter, but in anime, this Winter is the Winter of 2012… what I’m trying to say is, it’s Part One because I’m splitting this post into three parts. Hooray!
Hopefully this Winter will be better than last Winter, where there were a grand total of two good shows (Madoka and Level E). *shudder*
I shudder because it’s cold»
Arghblargh somebody just crawled through my blog on some reading rampage. I’ll bet he now knows all of my deepest, darkest secrets that I keep obscure by posting them online for everybody to read. After all, anybody who wants to find my secrets won’t possibly look online at my personal blog, right?
Anyways, whoever you are, IDENTIFY YOURSELF! Or I shall BLOCK your IP address because… uh, I can like totally see your IP address and stuff. Yeah. Trust me. You can’t see it because you didn’t buy the WordPress Super Duper Awesome Crazy Top Secret Value Package Bundle Deal, which only becomes available after you purchase the WordPress Value Bundle. Don’t believe me? See for yourself
and waste $99 in the process!
I’m not tricking you»
Woohoo, it’s finally finished!
Summer was nice, but there was a lot of anime. It didn’t seem like it at first, but add in the ton of two-cour anime from Spring and I had my plate full /even/ without school. Thus, I’m going to be following far less anime this season (the lack of multi-cour shows from Summer helps) – not only because school might bog me down, but because I want to participate in NaNoWriMo this year and catch up on unfinished anime (first seasons of established shows, I’m looking at you…). Yet, no matter how many anime I watch, I still do nothing at all, so maybe it might just be better to watch another ton of shows.
Next, after recently adding the ‘Potential Rating’ thing last season (which are absolute and not relative by season, so there ‘could’ be a season where everything is at a 1/5), I introduce yet another groundbreaking innovation by the team (there’s a ‘me’ in team, but I see no ‘we’) here at O-New:
butt jokes and swearing custom-designed, fully original, only 30% from-anime artistically inclined modern imaginative drawings from a highly educated scholar in writing informative posts!
That is to say, bad mspaint doodles. HUEHUEUEHEUEHEUHUEHUEHEUHUUU
My preview quality is FALLing»
This is my face after finishing the anime.
Oh gosh, this HSR is from the times when I didn’t screencap while watching, so arghblargh I have to go through all those episodes again…
ACTUALLY, NO I DON’T, BECAUSE THERE’S NOTHING REMOTELY INTERESTING ABOUT THIS AT ALL :|
(Also, will be updating some HSR here, so wait for my link!)
Here: Shiki HSR 3. Read it~!
