Garden of Words Kotonoha no Niwa

The Summer 2013 season is just hours from starting, so here are the poll results and our tentative plans for episodic blogging.

First, some quick poll results (Top 10):

  1. Free!
  2. Blood Lad
  3. Monogatari: Second Season
  4. KamiNomi III
  5. Gin no Saji
  6. Kimi no Iru Machi
  7. Gatchaman Crowds
  8. Rozen Maiden (2013)
  9. Danganronpa The Animation
  10. Genshiken Nidaime

Comments: Quite a strange spread for the top 10 most anticipated series.  I personally didn't expect to see Blood Lad so high up and it breaks my hear a little that Kimi no Iru Machi made it all the way to the number six spot.  On the brighter side, Gin no Saji, Gatchaman and Genshiken garnered some hype, which is reason for happiness.  Oh and I should probably mention how unsurprised I am at Free! topping the poll.

Blogging Plans:

Hard decisions to make here, since it is a season with a lot of decent choice.  Amber has graciously offered up her time once again to pick up 3 series, and I'll probably be looking at anywhere between 5-10 (I'm just that compulsive).  For now our plans look something like this:

Amber - Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist, Free!, Brother's Conflict

Myself  - Genshiken Nidaime, Monogatari: Second Season, Gatchaman Crowds, Uchouten Kazoku, KamiNomi III, Gin no Saji, Servant x Service

A few others I'm considering include: Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi, Tamayura: Maore Aggresive, Gifuu Doudou!!

Of course being a tentative list, things might get dropped or swapped out in favour of something else so don't consider this a confirmed list.  For all I know, a lot of the series I'm looking forward to might end up being poor and hence not get blogged.
