Please check out MOON PHASE for complete listings, syoboi for specific air times, and Fansub Wiki for a list of potential subbers for each series.
Regardless, it’s my pleasure to present to you Random Curiosity’s Spring 2013 preview, the product of countless hours from seven of our writers — many of which are coincidentally also celebrating their one year anniversary of writing here. As a quick reminder, each entry is divided into two paragraphs: As with last season, we’re bringing back our Expectation Levels in an attempt to help you decide what to watch based on how excited we are about each individual shows.
For more on this, including our definition of each level, check out the overall impressions section at the very bottom.
We’ve also included a list of all shows organized by expectation level, just to make things easier.
Disclaimer: Past season previews were done by a single writer, Divine.
Unfortunately, none of the writers are full cyborgs like he is—we still have to eat and sleep—so we’ve divvied up the preview portion of this post amongst five writers (Baka Mochi, Moomba, Stilts, Zanibas, and myself — Zephyr) in order to try and match the high-quality and objective impressions you’ve come to expect.
Similar to what Divine did in the past, we will also try to identify what appeals to us in each series, in hopes that it will help you determine if it coincides with your tastes.
Disclaimer #2: Please note that this list does not reflect all the series airing this coming spring.
It is meant to be as comprehensive as possible, but omissions have been made in regards to shows that stray from the anime norm or seem to be oriented towards young children.
It has been said that every ending is a new beginning.
Indeed, the end of the cold winter months signal the beginning of spring—and yet another new season of anime.
Having given us some of the best series in recent years, the spring season has established itself as one of the strongest and most packed seasons, second only to fall.
