  • Trigger announces a full-length anime
  • New Saki spinoff because Ritz

  • Girls und Panzer Season 2
  • Big Order
  • Ohmuro Family
  • Route 225
  • Tales Of Graces
  • The Idolm@Ster Cinderella Girls

Inaki: 4/9

  • Haruhi. Because I am a lover and a dreamer. I walk through the days my mind both here and in a dream land of milk and honey, taking in as much of the world as I can and seeing more.
  • Zaregoto. They’re re-broadcasting Katanagatari, and along with some major new Isin projects it makes sense.
  • Yubisaki Milk Tea. Ahahahahahaha hahaha ha ha ha. Ehehe. Ha. Ha. * sniff *
  • Himitsu no Akuma-chan. Middlingly popular ecchi trap manga, 12 episodes by (insert studio here), mediocre BD sales.
  • Centaur no Nayami. Monstergirl boom has gotta start somewhere.
  • More Garupan. No brainer.
  • More HidaSketch Have you * seen * those BD sales?
  • JoJo’s Bizzare Adventure: Stardust Crusaders. This is the one everyone wanted in the first place.
  • Monster Hunter: The Anime. Come on, it’s perfect anime fodder and we’re getting MonHun 4 this year. Only a matter of time.

Fungi: 4/9

  • Nareru! SE (LN) anime
  • Nisekoi anime
  • Kizumonogatari delayed to 2014
  • Nobuna S2
  • Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei (LN) anime
  • Kurobas cancelled due to bomb threats
  • P4 movie
  • Hatsukoi 1/1 (eroge) anime
  • SAO S2

deepbluejeer: 0/9

  • Utsuro no Hako to Zero no Maria adapted by Studio SHAFT
  • Muv-Luv anime announcement
  • Rewrite anime announcement after Little Busters finishes airing
  • Sora no Woto S2
  • New Koe de Oshigoto! OVA episode
  • Durarara S2
  • Cross+Channel anime directed by Seiji Kishi
  • At least one Liarsoft VN will get an anime adaptation.
  • Fate/stay night: Heaven’s Feel adaptation

resoni: 2/9

  • Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei
  • Rokka no Yuusha
  • Barakamon
  • Some Momoiro Clover anime
  • Sangatsu no Lion
  • Zaregoto
  • Prunus Girl
  • IM@S: Cinderella Girls

irrevilent: 3/9

  • Biblia Koshodou no Jiken Techou to get anime adaptation.
  • Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei to get anime adaptation. These two are the only 2 in the top 24 light novel series that don’t have an anime adaptation, if you include Kagerou Days and Date a Live, as they have anime in the works announced.
  • Terashima Takuma to play a prominent lead role. Feels inevitable, despite the Kokoro Connect incident.
  • Haruhi season 3 will not be announced.
  • Hirano Aya will have a lead role in a Seinen anime. I reckon the Haruhi series is still a bit delayed after her scandal, but on its way. Possible they’re waiting for her to make a full comeback before announcing anything.
  • To Aru Majutsu no Index season 3 announced. A bit of a gamble, but if we assume a July showing for Railgun, they’d announce Index season 3 at the end. If not, before Railgun is finished.
  • Matsuoka Yoshitsugu wins ‘best lead actor’ award at the 7th Seiyuu Awards. This one seems to be a pretty strong bet, regardless of how good the characters are or not, he’s done well in the portrayal of Kirito and Sorata. Couldn’t decide between Kayano Ai, Hanazawa Kana, Tomatsu Haruka and Hidaka Rina and maaaaybe Sawashiro Miyuki. I’d assume one of them would win at least ‘best supporting’, possibly ‘best lead’ too.
  • Magical Suite Prism Nana will be upgraded from non-thing to something-we-know-what-it-is at Comiket 84.
  • Tiger & Bunny Movie 2: The Rising to be shown outside Japan first in conjunction with Scotland Loves Anime, same as Movie 1.

ZakuAbumi: 3/9

  • Horizon S3
  • Kino no Tabi S2
  • Spice and Wolf S3
  • Mushishi S2
  • Detroit Metal City S2
  • Sword Art Online S2
  • Aya Hirano to have a voice acting role in Lucky Star spinoff
  • Announcement of a new unaired TWGoK episode
  • Accel World S2

Blue-kun: 4/9

  • Sangatsu no Lion anniemay -Hopefully for noitaminA, just wishful thinking that it might happen seeing as the block’s going through some harsh times, and it was originally created in order to have Honey and Clover on it. So… after the Katanagatari reruns, what better (and more utopic) way to revive it than Sangatsu no Lion?! Geez.
  • Takahiro Sakurai x Nana Mizuki relationship/marriage confirmed -EVERY damn year people come up with rumours and yet it never happens, so maybe 2013 will be the year. Believe it. Although I’m not sure I want that to happen, Nana forever pure and single etc ;_;
  • Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei anniemay -Apparently it’s a midly popular LN that has a badass protagonit and as such here’s me betting it’ll be adapted into anniemays til the end of the year.
  • Ookiku Furikabutte S3 -Because wishful thinking is never enough, it’s been a while since the last season and I’m sure there’s enough material for a new season already, so… JUST DO IT. It sells like them hotcakes cause fujoshi go crazy etc.
  • Kyoukai no Kanata adapted by KyoAni -Since they had their way with Chuunibyou, no reason not to expect them to work in their newly published LN. Plus, it looks more interesting and then even teased with a promo back then, so I want to believe etc.
  • Goro Taniguchi to return and direct new mecha show that will save anime in 2013 -Because you know you want it to happen.
  • New Monogatari series to debut in noitaminA after Katanagatari reruns -Because duckroll suggested this on Twitter and to be fair it seems like it’s a plausible thing that might really happen. Here I am jinxing the timeslot forever and having it turn into JUST ANOTHER SLOT on tv etc ;_;
  • New Natsume Yuujinchou anniemay near the end of the year -Well, more wishful thinking, but they’ve been chumming those out one after the other, so why not. The last one covered up to Volume 12, and 13 was released past January. Seeing as they usually cover 3 volumes per season, around the middle of the year they should have enough material, so who knows. Plus, there are always the (good) filler to cover up any holes!
  • Girls’ Work not to be released in 2013 -Because TYPE-MOON etc.

Tinky: 1/9

  • New season of Full Metal Panic announced. (I WANT TO BELIEVE.)
  • A movie for Idolm@ster
  • Kamisama Hajimemashita season 2
  • No Haruhi announcement this year -because fuck dat shit.
  • Yotsuba& gets a three-five minutes anime
  • Girl und Panzer season 2.
  • Urobuchi dies -to finalize his work he needed to deconstruct LIFE.
  • Ame Nochi Hare gets an anime.
  • Persona 3 adapted to anime.

Futsuu: 3/9

  • FMP 2013 will happen. Believe.
  • Kizumonogatari will premiere on New Year’s Eve.
  • KyoAni will take a break this spring. (To prepare for FMP in the summer, obviously.)
  • Consequently, Devil Survivor 2 will be the best-selling Spring anime.
  • We’ll get at least one sequel/remake/adaptation of a baseball story. (H2 remake, Oofuri S3 etc, One Outs S2 etc)
  • There’ll be a new Macross series.
  • Either Grisaia or White Album 2 will get an anime.
  • Gotouza will not voice anyone. Not for a full run anyway. Cameos are allowed.
  • Best girls never win.

Kraker2k: 3/9

  • Imaishi announces a new series at Trigger as the Director
  • Gundam Origin is finally detailed by Sunrise with a release date
  • Obari announced as the director for a new anime show
  • New Precure show (Doki doki) also gets a giant robot episode
  • Yamakan saves anime
  • Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei is adapted into an anime
  • Mitsuo Iso comes back to animate/direct/something anime related
  • Sword of the Stranger 2 Announced by Bones
  • Dream Machine gets a release date

Kaisos Erranon: 3/9

  • Another season of Haruhi will be announced. -Like the new Lucky Star anime, it will be by Studio Ordet.
  • Speaking of the new Lucky Star spinoff, it will be a complete flop. -People will blame Yamakan’s directing, but in reality it will be because no one cares about Lucky Star anymore.
  • An adaptation of the KEY game Rewrite will be announced. -It won’t be by KyoAni either.
  • It will be by Studio DEEN.
  • In a surprise move, JC Staff will produce another season of the critically acclaimed comedy anime Kill Me Baby. -It will perform beyond all expectations, selling 687 copies.
  • Studio Trigger still won’t make that old-Gainax-tier TV anime that everyone wants them to.
  • Gargantia, that new Gen Urobuchi anime, will be genuinely uplifting and cheerful, and contain none of the violence and overbearing negativity that the writer is famous for.
  • Because we might as well make a prediction about light novel adaptations to ensure that at least ONE of these things is right, Mahouka Koukou No Rettousei will get an anime.
  • Mahouka will turn into the next Sword Art Online and sell thousands of copies while generating a highly annoying Western fanbase -Composed mostly of stupid, awkward teenagers who think that the series is the best thing ever, when it isn’t, because it’s the Japanese Atlas Shrugged. Fuck Mahouka.

Hitokiri: 5/9

  • Third Nanoha movie gets announced. Third Nanoha seems obvious after the success of the first two, just a matter of time and whether it will be new or a reimagining of Strikers (I’m certainly hoping for the former).
  • TV anime of Atelier series gets announced. -Tecmo-Koei bought Gust and seems to have hopes of making it a bigger franchise and making an anime is a common way of helping make this happen.
  • *new* (not sequel or established franchise) sells over 50k for at least the first volume. I don’t really have any justification for the sales one except that Aniplex sure seems to know how to make huge sellers.
  • Kikou Shoujo wa Kizutsukanai (機巧少女は傷つかない)
  • Ore to Kanojo no Game Sensou (僕と彼女のゲーム戦争)
  • Hitsugi no Chaika (棺姫のチャイカ)
  • Hikomori no Kanojo wa Kami nano desu (ひきこもりの彼女は神なのです。)
  • Seitokai Tantei Erika (生徒会探偵キリカ)
  • Oooku no Sakura: Gendai Oooku Shoujoin Maru (大奥のサクラ 現代大奥女学院まる) The adaptations are purely on gut feeling. I’ve had some success guessing these in the past (like Haganai, Hentai Ouji, and OreShura and some others I’m forgetting). The exception here is Oooku no Sakura which is more hope than prediction. I figured its odds of getting an anime were about zero until recently, since Kyouran Kazoku Nikki was a flop, but if Sasami@Ganbaranai does well, that might bode well for Oooku no Sakura. Also, I’ve been figuring Kikou Shoujo would get an anime for about 2 years… its bound to happen eventually, right? Things I nixed from my list to make room for more LN adaptations, so I’ll kick myself if/when they happen: Fate/Stay Night remake announced, new yuri anime (not Yuru Yuri, and is an actual yuri series like Strawberry Panic, Aoi Hana or Sasameki Koto, with actual lesbians as a major element and not just fanservice or subtext), new FMP anime announced (Ahahahaha yeah right, but I’d hate for it to happen and it NOT be on my list….).

Reki: 1/9

  • Nichijou S2
  • New Eva project
  • New FKMT anime
  • SZS 5
  • Dream Machine to be completed
  • Disappointing sales for the new *monogatari series (less than 20k average)
  • Spice and Wolf 3
  • Yet another Watanabe project revealed
  • Rewrite anime announcement

Xillin Arneth: 2/9

  • “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure” gets second season!
  • “Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S” to adapt “Toaru Majutsu no Index: Railgun SS: Liberal Arts City” and “Toaru Majutsu no Index: Railgun SS2: Shopping Mall Demonstration”
  • “Girls und Panzer” gets continuation.
  • Adaptation of visual novel “A Profile” announced.
  • “Penguinbear Project” revealed to be movie.
  • Light Novel to “Sayonara Piano Sonata” to get anime adaptation.
  • Brains Base announce sequel of “Durarara!!”
  • Anime adaptation of selection of Inio Asano’s works announced.
  • Second season of “Giant Killing” announced.

kViN: 6/9

  • Outsourced Trigger episode in Vividred Operation -A risky bet since the show is only 12 episodes long, but there’s enough clues leading to it. Heavy staff overlap with Idolmaster, which got the first outsourced Trigger episode. Tensai Okamura, who worked in the Trigger episode of SAO, is also on-board. The opening already has some Trigger animation. Here’s hoping that the collaboration between the two studios doesn’t stop and we get an entire episode produced by them.
  • Kyoukai no Kanata -I’ve ranted about KyoAni’s moves to become self-sufficient with the creation of their LN line enough. Now that we know for a fact that Chuu2Koi is been a financial success, an adaptation for the other novel they made an animated PV for seems kind of a given. And it’ll finally shut up the half of the internet crying about their animation being “wasted”! What a happy ending.
  • Haruhi -We’re due a KyoAni x Kadokawa project, and it’s looking like a big one this time. Considering Ishihara’s scarce appearances in Chuu2Koi in spite of being his own show and the fact that Shouko Ikeda hasn’t had a key role in any of their last shows, it seems like Haruhi could be back for real. There’s the Gatoh+Takemoto argument in favor of more FMP but I flipped a coin and it said Haruhi, so there you go.
  • Idolmaster Cinderella Girls anime -CG has printed more money for Scamco in 2012 than is morally (and legally, considering how the game works) sound. Some of their characters have managed the feat to become as popular as the actual Im@s cast, and they’ve been rewarded with singles. Which means that they have official VA. Which means that Scamco might announce some sort of adaptation when Puchimasu is over.
  • D-Frag! You know that adaptation we’ve been calling for years? Might be time to get on it already.
  • Maoyuu s2 It seems to have locked onto the position of the best seller of Winter season, which at this point means absolutely nothing but makes the idea of a sequel sound very feasible considering how cheap the project is. More than enough material to justify it as well.
  • Spice and Wolf 3 -While we’re on economics and such, the SW1-2 bluray box announcement seems rather suspicious now that the novels are over.
  • Saki Zenkoku-hen delayed until 2014 -Less of a logic reason and more of a foolish hope. Otherwise this is going to be the third Saki anime adaptation starting before there’s enough material for it, which has lead to some rather… curious situations in the past. Please learn from your mistakes.
  • Madan no Ou to Senki -A new light novel series was a given, but since picking the ones that sell millions of units like Biblia Koshodou and Mahouka is very boring, I let Amazon’s random LN recommendations do the job. I wish I got something with a funnier title at least, this is just unremarkable.

While most people seem aware that light novels are the way to acquire a cheap win, it’s rather balanced between crazy wishlist and serious attempts at winning. Not to say that any of the down to Earth lists will win for sure, but with cases like a hypotetical Haruhi S3 and Kizumonogatari, someone is bound to get it right just because there are predictions in favor or against their confirmation. Mahouka gets the Award to the Most Obvious Upcoming anime, meaning that if if there’s no announcement this year we’re capable of jynxing anything. To the surprise of no one, FMP is still that one show everyone wants but no one genuinely believes will happen, and Trigger seems to be in many people’s mind as well. Whether those hopes and dreams translate to something more tangible we’ll see in the next months.
