Twelve Days of Anime 1: Anime Preview Winter 2016

Since last season’s Anime Preview went so well — eight views in ten weeks!! — and since the Twelve Days of Anime aniblogging Project is on again, I thought I’d try it again. Unlike other reviewers, who use knowledge of the source materials, close observation of the studio previews, and who actually read the press releases, I’m going to base mine on just the title and the cover art (with maybe a little bit of the blurb). Clickable details can be found here.

First, let’s say what’s not in here. Sequels to stuff I didn’t like before, kids stuff, movies and OVA’s, and anything I can’t tell if it’s a series, an OVA, or a short.

WILL WATCH: The title or the cover art is properly enticing, so I definitely will watch at least the first three eps.

MIGHT WATCH: The cover art is not too off-putting, so I might watch it.

WON’T WATCH. The cover art and/or the title tells me more than I ever wanted to know on the topic.
