So a new beginning and I could see some shows that I will follow. Railgun, Nyaruko and Ore no Imouto, Samurai Brides is a confirmed Yes! We have three original mechas shows which got nothing to do with Gundam or Macross. But it is more to the Real Robots genres so don't expect anything over the top.

I have been following Space Battleship Yamato 2199 on blu ray and the first 14 episodes is really good! The show is first showed in Japan theatres four episodes at a time and come out in home version three months later. If you want to follow the story based on the original series but don't want to watch the old version, this is a good time to watch it and they improve a lot on the characters and battleship designs.

The rest of the shows as usual I will watch the first three episodes before making any decisions. So what will you will be watching this season? Feel free to comment and see in April for the new shows!
