We told you we’d be back soon. Like, really really soon. Here we are. Yes, it’s first impressions time again, and while winter is generally a slow season for anime, there were a lot of series that caught our interest when we looked at its chart back in December. We didn’t check out everything – last fall made us learn the hard way that just because you watch more doesn’t mean what you watch will be good – but we did check out everything that seemed important and intriguing to us or surprisingly good to other anime critics. Like last fall, we won’t be posting scores this early. This is simply our thoughts on the pilot of each show we watched, followed by whether we thought it seemed worthy of continuation. We’ve also added little summaries to each entry below, just in case you’re out of the loop (and there’s nothing wrong with that!). Let Justice-sensei put your ignorance to ease.
