Winter Anime Season 2011   Leave a comment

Well it appears that the list for the Winter Season is out. This season seems to be composed of some sequels and the rest being new series from manga’s or light novel. It seems that I’ll be watching at least 10 shows but out of the 10 I’ll blog probably 3 shows from the Winter Season. I will mention a few anime that are carrying on from the Autumn/Fall Season, Bakuman, Hetalia, Star Driver: Kagayaki no Takuto, Super Robot Taisen OG: The Inspector, Tegami Bachi Reverse and Toaru Majutsu no Index II. Anyway if you want to get the entire Winter listing please go to MOON PHASE alternatively if you want the specific airtimes check out synobi’s calendar (though be warned its in japanese), finally if you want to know who is fansubbing which anime go to Fansub Wiki’s Page. I will now tell you a few of the anime’s on the Autumn Season I will omit the kids shows but they’ll be in the table I just won’t give any information besides that, I will also mention the long running shows that have been airing for a while minus One Piece. If you see a * anywhere in the Winter Season it means that there is more information to be found at the bottom of the page.

Quick side note: In japan the time is given in 24-hour, relative time format which technically means the times are extended to show which day they primarily belong too.  So for example, Thursday morning at 2:00am would become Wednesday 26:00 to show that the episode aired late Wednesday night. Before I forget I’m from the United Kingdom so I write the date differently from Americans and Japanese i.e. date, month, year 28/11/2010.

Synopsis: The 11 year old Marui triplets could not be any more different. The oldest one, Mitsuba, is sadistic and kind of mature for her age. The middle one, Futaba, is perverted and very athletic and has the strength of a full-grown man. The youngest one, Hitoha, is generally very quiet and gentle but when push comes to shove, she might just be the strongest, the most perverted and the most sadistic out of the three.
The three are all in the same class, led by the newly graduated teacher Yabe Satoshi. He usually gets pushed around by the girls and, on occasion, abused but the triplets also try to lead him and the new school nurse, the clumsy Kuriyama Aiko, together. However, Yabe had no intention of dating Aiko and the methods the triplets use to accomplish their goal are highly unorthodox… (Taken from 1st season).
