Well the Spring Previews on ANN are in full swing and as usual Zac's reviews are the lulzy highlight of the whole affair. Although he's actually held back on giving idiosyncratic scores to things, with the weirdest one being a score of "WHAAAAAAAAAAAT" given to Upotte. Speaking of which, Upotte is shaping up to be the token brain-breakingly bad show of the season: it's a show about moe girls who are also assault rifles, and it apparently takes the basic anthropomorphization concept to extremely fetishy levels, so much so that it had both Zac and Rebecca making grim declarations about The State Of Anime Today. The other WTF-inducing show of the season is Mysterious Girlfriend X, a romance story that involves drool-drinking. This one also broke Zac's brain pretty bad — "spit otaku, that's where we're at now, folks!" — although some of the reviewers said it was a solid show if you can get past the spit-drinking. Which is a pretty big "if" if you ask me.

And I enjoyed Bamboo Dong's assessment of the reverse-harem show as "falling somewhere between Terrible Generic Crap and If I'm Already Drinking, I Might As Well." I feel like I watch a lot of stuff in the latter category. Except I don't drink. :(

So I was browsing ANN's list of Spring 2012 anime premieres and um.

Lupin III - The Woman Called Fujiko Mine


Director: Sayo Yamamoto (Michiko to Hatchin)
Animation Director / Character Designer: Takeshi Koike (Redline)
Series Composition: Mari Okada (AnoHana, Simoun)


And the woman voicing Fujiko also did the voice of Celty from Durarara. GHH.

Also in the service of the MG Project, I took a look at the Magical Girl shows coming out this season, and dear god is it a depressing sight. Jewelpet season 4 and Pretty Rhythm Aurora Dream season 2. That's it. BARF.
