Winter 2014 Anime Plan!


Season Greetings, Everyone! I hope many of you are enjoying your holiday so far as the new year approaches and 2013 will soon be behind us.

Anyways, now that its winter; it`s that time to announce some new anime to watch for Winter 2014. I’ll be watching 8 series for Winter 2014, so let`s continue shall we.

The first anime I’ll be watching for Winter 2014 is Buddy Complex, it’ll begin airing on Jan 5, 2014 on Tokyo MX at 12:00 AM JST. It`s a new original mech anime from studio, Sunrise, that brought you Gundam anime and it`s recently finished series, Kakumeiki Valvrave. It’s opening theme will be “UNISONIA” by TRUE and it’s ending theme will be “Ano Sora ni Kaeru Mirai de (あの空に還る未来で; In the future we return to that sky)” by ChouCho, the singles will be released on Feb 23, 2014.

TRUE is a new band/group, so this will be their debut song/single. You should be familiar with ChouCho’s music/songs by now; if not, go on youtube and check them out.

The second anime I’ll be watching is Hamatora The Animation, it’ll begin airing on Jan 7, 2014 on TV Tokyo at 1:40 AM JST. It’s s a “super-powered mystery x battle entertainment” mixed-media project, produced by NAZ, so it seems pretty interesting as it has some action as well. The opening theme will be “FLAT” by livetune adding Yuuki Ozaki (from Galileo Galilei) and the ending theme will be “Hikari” by Wataru Hatano. The OP single will most likely be out in February/March 2014 while the ED single will be released on Feb 19, 2014.

Some of you maybe familiar with livetune’s music/songs as he did theme songs or so for 6♥Princess, Devil Survivor 2 The Animation, Digimon Xros Wars: Aku no Death General to Nanatsu no Oukoku, Digimon Xros Wars: Toki wo Kakeru Shounen Hunter-tachi, Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha, Mahou Tsukai Nara Miso wo Kue!, Nisekoi, Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai + Specials, Redial, Stella Jogakuin Koutou-ka C³-bu, Take Your Way, Tell Your World, Transfer, and Weekender Girl. Galileo Galilei has done Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai + Movie, Gundam AGE, and Ookiku Furikabutte: Natsu no Taikai Hen; so you may or may not be familiar with their music/songs. Wataru Hatano is a voice actor and has done Angel’s Feather, Battle Spirits: Heroes, Haiyore! Nyaruko-san, Okane ga Nai, Saint Beast: Kouin Jojishi Tenshi Ta, Seiyuu Sentai Voicetorm 7, and Shirokuma Cafe.

The third anime I’ll be watching is Mahou Sensou or Magical Warfare, it’ll begin airing on Jan 9, 2014 on TBS at 1:28 AM JST. It’s a LN adaption produced by Madhouse. It looks interesting and has action. The opening theme will be “Senkou no Prisoner” (閃光のPRISONER; PRISONER of flash) by Yuuka Nanri while the ending theme has yet to be determined, but will be revealed within next 7 days. The OP single will be released on Feb 5, 2014.

Yuuka Nanri is a currently a vocalist for Yuki Kajiura’s “FictionJunction Yuuka” project, so I’m sure many of you are familiar with her music/songs as well as the group she is apart of.

The fourth anime I’ll be watching is Nobunaga the Fool, it’ll begin airing on Jan 5, 2014 on TV Tokyo at 1:05 AM JST. It’s probably one of the highly anticipated anime, produced by Satelight, due to the premise; which looks promising. The opening theme will be “FOOL THE WORLD” by Minori Chihara and the ending theme will be “AXIS” by STEREO DIVE FOUNDATION. The OP single will be released on Feb 26, 2014 while the ED single will be released on Feb 12, 2014.

Nothing the comment here as you should be familiar with both of them.

The fifth anime I’ll be watching is Nobunagun, it’ll begin airing on Jan 5, 2014 on Tokyo MX at 10:00 PM JST. It’s adapted from a manga, which is being produced by Bridge, it’s an action type anime (which i like); so should be interesting. The opening theme will be “Respect for the dead man” by Pay money To my Pain and the ending theme will be “Chiisana Hoshi (ちいさな星; Little Star)” by Shio Ogura (Shiori Mutou), Newton (Yuu Asakawa), Galileo (Sumire Uesaka).

Pay money To my PAIN did Buzzer Beaters and One Outs, so this will be their 3rd anime. The ED is being done by a few voice actor of the series.

The sixth anime I’ll be watching is Noragami, it’ll begin airing on Jan 5, 2014 on Tokyo MX at 11:30 PM JST. It’s adapted from a manga, which is being produced by Bones. The premise seems interesting enough. The opening will be “Goya no Machiawase (午夜の待ち合わせ; Meeting of Umayoru)” by Hello Sleepwalkers and the ending theme will be “Heart Realize (ハートリアライズ)” by Tia. The OP single will be released on Jan 29, 2014 while the ED single will be released on Mar 12, 2014.

This is most likely Hello Sleepwalkers first anime. I’m not sure if this is the same Tia that’s doing this ED.

The seventh anime I’ll be watching is Space Dandy, it’ll begin airing on Jan 5, 2014 on Tokyo MX at 11:00 PM JST. It’s an original anime produced by Bones. It has a retro vibe to it, so yeah. The opening will be “Viva Namida” (ビバナミダ; Viva Teardrops) by Yasuyuki Okamura and the ending theme will be “X Jigen e Youkoso (X次元へようこそ; Welcome to the X Dimension)” by Etsuko Yakushimaru. The ED single will be released on Jan 29, 2014; although the single the song is from has been released, it probably be an album release.

Yasuyuki Okamura did City Hunter 2, so this will be his 2nd anime. Etsuko Yakushimaru did Arakawa Under the Bridge, Arakawa under the Bridge × Bridge, Ground Control to Psychoelectric Girl, Natsu no Arashi! Akinai-chū, Penguindrum and (The) Tatami Galaxy; so this will be her 6th/7th anime.

The eighth and final anime I’ll be watching is Wizard Barristers: Benmashi Cecil, it’ll begin airing on Jan 12, 2014 on Tokyo MX at 12:30 AM JST. It’s an original anime produced by ARMS. The premise is interesting and the PVs shows alot of action.
