    I'm sure I'd be looking forward to some of these too if they were accompanied by a plot synopsis.

      I was thinking the exact same thing. 20 titles in a language I don't understand isn't particularly helpful.

      Let me take a crack at least 50% of them:

      "[Popular boys name] was just your average schoolboy living a normal life until he met a mysterious semi naked girl with bizarre powers."

    Why does Ajin have to be 3D? :(
    Also what on Earth is Fairy Tale Zero? A prequel arc?

      I have to say it looks rather cool and well done and I was quite off-put by Knights of Sidonia. Still looking forward to it.

        Don't remind me of the horror that was season two of Sidonia...
        IT
        WAS
        A
        PEE PEE

        .... Otherwise I thought the 3d worked well for the mech scenes.

    Red Haired Snow White has a season 2?!?!?

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! xD

    On a random note... yeah a synopsis would actually be nice?

    Video linked for Fairy Tail Zero is actually a trailer for the Tartarus arc which has been running in the main anime for months.

    Gate was a surprise of season past. After a slow start it had some great high points.
