Looks more interesting to me than Winter at least. I'll watch the continuation of Fate/Zero and Zombie for sure. Medaka Box and Accel World mangas started decent enough, but lost my interest. I may or may not watch those. Then Sankarea and Zetman sound like they could be good, particularly Sankarea.

I'm sure something else will pop up I will be interested in as well.

How did you lose interest in Accel World? The manga has barely started, haha. Unless you mean the light novels, in which case I can't comment. Accel World and Fate/Zero are probably my top choices for spring, Medaka Box following close behind. Medaka Box should probably end after at most 24 episodes, or it'll just get too far from the original concept and tank, unfortunately.

I feel like there isn't enough content to do Sankarea comprehensively, so it'll probably end up with either a giant cliffhanger or an anime-only ending. I'll still watch it, but I won't be expecting too much.

So far winter looks more interesting.

But, this is only a very short list. There'll be lots more added by its finalization.

I don't remember why I lost interest in Accel World. If its that recent, its possible I just read all that was out at the time, then forgot about it due to it not striking me as awesome.

Medaka Box could probably go 24 eps, but I'd be happier with only 12. Once the manga started
Spoiler:
the big plot arch with more superhumans (disciplinary committee I believe?) and all the fighting I got bored.

I actually liked the one-shot considerably more than the series that followed, as far as Medaka Box is concerned.

It's not so much that it's recent and more that it's being released bimonthly, so there are only 8 chapters out right now.

I could be on board with that, except that:
Spoiler:
the flask plan arc goes more into why Medaka has super powers, so it would make more sense to at least go that far instead of ending the series early and leaving a ton of background story hanging.

Will get to Fate/Zero at some point. Not interested in the others just by looking at an image. They might be great though and get a fan base. That's usually when I take notice of weird series.

There are plot synopses in proximity to the pretty pictures, you know >_>

I wish they'd tell me whether the shows a waste of time or not. Sadly I can't get much other than an iffy impression of the first couple episodes from a plot synopses. It could turn out to be an epic show or one that can't hold my attention. That's why I don't usually bother with brand new shows until anime fans have spoken on the matter.

I wouldn't go for the plot synopsis 100% of the time, either. For example, YuruYuri had an extremely generic description in the Summer 2011 chart, but the actual show is funny as hell (IMO).

It ALREADY left the original concept by becoming a battle manga.

...

Spoiler:
And now might have just done it AGAIN by becoming a romantic comedy... XD Or something.



Zombie Desu Ka Season Two, though? OH YES. MY MONEY... TAKE IT.

Can I assume the AKB0048 anime is being made to ride the Idolm@ster anime wave?
