This season is surprisingly less anticipated than the previous season. However I will be looking forward to Zero no Tsukaima F, Aquarion EVOL and Amagami SS Plus. Zero no Tsukaima F despite being another Kugimiya Rie show, I am more interested to find out if Saito will return back to his world and given how the author is in and out of hospital, hopefully a good conclusion can be satisfied to the fans.
Aquarion is one that had my eyes wide open. Known for the pilots to get orgasam everytime they combine to Aquarion and from the trailer, they have an all male team and an all female team. So I guess they need to have to a mix team to release the full potiental of Aquarion.
Amagami SS Plus is of course an interesting look at the after-story of every female lead. Even though we have a glimpse in the future in Season 1 of how their lives will be. But as long there is more Haruka, Kaoru, Tsukasa and Nanasaki, I am all eyes and ears about it!
The rest of the shows will be as usual "watch the first three episodes and decide" format. Hope you enjoy the shows when it comes out!
