Archives for posts with tag: Anime Bingo 2016

Shorter summary only highlighting some things this month, because unexciting updates make me lazy.

  • Honestly, nothing all that big this mon- Oh. New Cardcaptor Sakura anime. Well. Nevermind.
  • A new Digimon multimedia series could also be considered huge, though it has less of an impact with Tri already existing. At least we get to laugh at their attempt to modernize the franchise being called “Appmon” and featuring “Gachamon”. Truly the Digimon of our times.
  • And Nisekoi is finally ending! That is, unless its readers/victims are about to experience the biggest fakeout in anime history and they plan to continue it in another magazine. Which… they wouldn’t, right. Right?
  • Violet Evergarden is getting an anime, as announced by a very flashy commercial. Who’d have thought that the only grand prize winner at the KyoAni Awards (which once again gave no actual prizes this year, also as predicted by someone) would get an adaptation.
  • Time Bokan 24 will be replacing Ace Attorney and airing this fall season. Seems like the least experimentative recent Tatsunoko reboot, perhaps someone wasn’t all that happy about Yoru no Yatterman’s poor sales.
  • Yuki Hayashi keeps trying to take over the anime industry with cool BGM and he’s already up to 3 new TV series, aside from the upcoming One Piece film.
  • The Weird MMD Anime niche has been rewarded with a new Koutarou Ishidate series, about… Mahou Shoujo? I’m not the one doubting, the ? is in the title.

I definitely didn’t forget to publish this post until 6 hours after I’d finished it.

  • The mysterious nisioisin countdown lead to the announcement of a Zaregoto anime adaptation! If only they’d also announced which corpse at SHAFT will be in charge of it.
  • People keep asking for more Hyouka, so we’re getting a new novel in the Kotenbu series and a live action movie. Anime? What the hell’s that.
  • A WIXOSS sequel has been revealed, an objectively good announcement since that means a new WIXOSS title that follows the glorious formula of “attach two terms that aren’t even words”. I have no idea what a Lostorage Incited is, but I love it.
  • Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon is getting an anime adaptation, which is good for people who liked yuri and dragons. Excellent news if you like both.
  • Saiki Kusuo no Psinan is getting an anime as well, but all I care about is that it’ll be produced by a studio called EGG FIRM. Which is apparently a play on Egg Farm. Anime is good.
  • We got more details about the promised Gundam Build Fighters OVAs, which are now slated to be a Try TV special. Where’s the BF one, Bandai. You promised. I won’t forget.
  • And speaking of the good Build Fighters, it’ll get a physical release in the US! Good news if you live in a bad country but enjoy good cartoons.
  • Oh and Crystal to-
  • Sales roundup this month include people wishing terrible sales to BBK and all of 3DCG anime and getting their wish fulfilled.

I really wish I had a funnier joke than “Urobuchi’s project was chinese puppets“.

  • Someone technically had a point before the ballots post even went up, thanks to the Magic of Stella anime announcement. Talk about fast.
  • It’s not quite Barakamon, but its spinoff prequel Handa-kun is getting an anime. Sadly lacking in Naru, but good nonetheless.
  • Keijo!!!!!!!! is also getting an anime adaptation, as well as the award for the most overly enthusiastic title.
  • Many people predicted Osomatsu-san would sell outrageously well, yet no one actually called it’d be one of the best selling volumes of all time.
  • The Mob Psycho 100 staff reveal fulfilled many staff wishlists, what’s with Tachikawa directing and Kameda being in charge of the character designs. Somehow even better than the Natsume&co dreams.
  • Speaking of staff, Imaishi’s new short series Space Patrol Luluco also surprised us by featuring more big Trigger names than expected.
  • Aikatsu’s mobage Photokatsu finally managed to launch this February… just in time for the leaks that the series is getting rebooted. Only Bandai could manage this.
  • Speaking of disasters, remember Kancolle Kai? The PS Vita port that got delayed about a million times? It’s finally being released! A lot of time well spent to make sure it had an even cheaper looking interface than its free to play source.
  • And to end on that somber note, “people predict anime will sell awfully” returns for 2016. The first victim was Comet Lucifer, which barely pushed more than 300 copies.

The motto this year was “get enough people to make predictions about the anime industry so that this post breaks everyone’s browsers”. It seems to have worked.

 

nichijou tada
Fuyu: 1/9

Craig McLeod1/9

  • Sailor Moon Crystal season 2 to be released as a series of OVAs ala Digimon Tri with a volume of the 2003 shins?ban per ‘movie’ (6 total)

Fencedude3/9

  • Idolmaster Million Live TV animeI’m lazy and didn’t replace my LoveLive Sunshine guess so it got changed to this [No Fence this one doesn’t count, but I really did this to everyone else]
  • Saki Shinohayu anime announced
  • Saki Zenkoku-hen anime announced for 2017
  • Citrus anime adaption
  • Some sort of Nanoha anime announced
  • Shirobako Season 2 not announced
  • Girls und Panzer season 2 announced
  • Symphogear Season 4 announced
  • A highly anticipated Sakuga anime fails to deliver
  • Some yuri anime other than Citrus comes out of nowhere

ZakuAbumi3/9

  • HxH manga returns from hiatusThis actually worked out for me once, 1 year is a long span of time and I don’t see Togashi stalling the manga for any longer also pls continue this already ffs.
  • Violet Evergarden adaptationKyoAni’s LNs getting adapted is a thing sadly but with this one, we might just get something decent actually!
  • New Yasuhiro Yoshiura projectHEY KVIN I’M SURE YOU’D LIKE TO SEE THAT EVE NO JIKAN SEQUEL RITE???
  • Anime project that has been on long hiatus (f.i. Despera, Savanna Game, Mushi-Uta 2) to actually happenMore recycling! Okay so that Mushi-Uta S2 will probably never happen (thanks, person who’s at fault) but my suspicion is Hamasaki’s summer anime being Despera with how he claimed that he’d get to a show he’s been wanting to do for a while now and Konaka’s teasing in his interview being rather not subtle.
  • Rokka no Yuusha sequel
  • Yuzuru Tachikawa directs something entirely newAlso, please stay away from stuff like Terror, kthx.
  • More Mononoke animeObligatory “This won’t happen anyway but if it does, everyone will kiss my ass” pick.

ravesaki1/9

  • Aikatsu doesn’t get a fifth season
  • OPM doesn’t get a sequel
  • Macross Delta doesn’t outsell Frontier
  • Gundam IBO isn’t split cour like 00, Sunrise announces another Gundam AU by the end of the year
  • Fafner gets yet another final movie
  • Still no news about the 3rd Nanoha movie
  • Another Precure series ends up on Netflix
  • Pripara lives for the entirety of 2016

  • Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro anime
  • Juuhan Shuttai! anime
  • Minamoto-kun Monogatari OVA adaptation
  • Ajin-chan wa Kataritai anime
  • Shibito no Koe o Kiku ga Yoi anime
  • Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san
  • CANDY POP NIGHTMARE anime

ultimatemegax2/9

  • Ero-manga Sensei will have an anime announcement this year Dengeki’s been promoting it lately, it has manga adaptations already, and there’s now enough content to make a full season. I wouldn’t be surprised if they/Aniplex decide to go back to something successful.
  • Adachi and Shimamura will not have an anime announcement this yearWhile this seems overly negative, it is a light novel series with at least 5 volumes in print. Generally that’s when there’s a potential for an anime series, but AdaShima is too short for a TV series. Also Dengeki isn’t publishing a manga adaptation yet either.
  • Munto will not get a BD release this yearThis is my “”gimmie”” point. Munto was published by KyoAni and distributed by Kadokawa and Movic in 2009 and didn’t sell that well (even with the KyoAni Shop) then. It’s incredibly unlikely they’ll release it on BD despite it being the one series produced by them not on BD.
  • Sound Euphonium’s sequel will broadcast starting in JulyRecap movie three months earlier, enough production time following Phantom World, and before Koe no Katachi. Check.
  • Sword Art Online’s movie will open in under 75 cinemasSAO is a big franchise, but it’s not /that/ big. I can’t see Aniplex reserving this many, but I could see around 50 or so, thus 75 seemed like a risky, but not overly risky prediction.
  • Violet Evergarden will have an anime announcement this year, but will not be broadcast/screened in 2016The schedule is full, so something following Eupho/Koe no Katachi seems natural.
  • While Kadokawa will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Haruhi anime, no additional anime will be announced – It’s not happening!
  • There will be no Kyoto Animation event this fallThey seem to be doing a “”every other year”” timeline and the staff will be moving to a new building this year anyways.”
  • Accelerator manga will get an anime adaptation announcement, but nothing new for Railgun/Index’s anime series – Index S3 never. NEVER!

osama___a2/9

  • Koudai Watanabe will be in charge of the character designs for something*vomiting blood*

One Piece&Naruto’s #01 fan1/9

  • That jump sumo Manga gets an animeHeroAca got an early announcement so I’m betting this will too even if it’s only an ova or something screened at JumpFesta.
  • Fate/apocrypha animeSeems like they’re hyping something for the AnimeJapan panel and it’s a bit soon for a Fate/GO anime, this seems like the most likely choice for a new fate thing.
  • An old shonen manga (over 25 years) will get a new anime adaptationSeems to be happening often lately what with D.Gray-Man and Berserk, so why not.
  • No Game No Life season 2Ishizuka please ;_;
  • Mushoku tensei animeT-this year for sure.
  • WIT will die again (huge production trainwrecks)Only so Shingeki With Trains can truly be Shingeki With Trains.
  • Another Toei series director will leave and become either freelance or join another studio
  • Rie Matsumoto will show up in another BONES seriesSpeaking of ex-Toei staff I kinda expected her to show up in noragami, and while that never happened maybe she’s doing something there since BBB ended.
  • Tokyo 7th sisters animeAll hail our idol overlords.

deepbluejeer3/9

  • White Album 2 Closing Chapter adaptationEvery year until it happens.
  • A Fate/ property gets a new anime adaptationFate/Grand Order is selling like hotcakes despite the constant issues; I can see Aniplex deciding to capitalize off this by animating either Apocrypha or Fragments. Please be Fragments.
  • Arcueid becomes playable in Fate/Grand OrderHalf-joking but they could use this to promote the Tsukihime remake (笑).
  • More Symphogear Hello, free points.
  • Mushoku Tensei animePicked up the LNs and it’s definitely going to be popular with the ‘stuck in fantasy world’ crowd. As much as I don’t want to see a butchered adaptation of this, it’s probably gonna happen sooner or later.
  • Shuumatsu ni nani wo shimasuka? Isogashii desu ka? Sukuttemoratte ii desu ka? (SukaSuka) anime adaptation Apparently it’s ending on April 1st and it seems to be garnering a good reputation.
  • Sakurai Hikaru gets credited for scriptwriting outside of Meian no KerneterSelf-explanatory.
  • Announcement of a Tokyo 7th Sisters anime projectCould be a teaser OVA, animated music videos; TV anime is probably unlikely but I think the game’s getting enough attention for something to be animated.
  • The Saki manga will not reach the last round of the tournament finals by the end of the yearBecause Ritz pls.

Jarmel0/9

  • Full Metal Panic will be produced at Xebec with the Yamato 2199 crew and will be released in the form of an OVA seriesI expect the director to be either Takemoto or Chigira. The producer for FMP, Ito, has connections at Xebec and has done multiple shows there. There was also a tweet from two animators, one who has done some work on Yamato, that sorta implied that one was working on the production.
  • Darker than Black S3 will be announced as the big BONES original for 2017 -?It’s been sorta rumored and wished but 2017 is the 10th anniversary of the airing date.

  • Madoka Season 2 will be announced for 2017Money on the table. On the table.

  • WIT will have at least one production that will go haywire this year and end up a visual trainwreckFree spot.
  • Hataraku Maou-sama S2 announcedI don’t really expect this but might as well keep the hope alive for the potential oddball.
  • No Game No Life S2 announced There was that thing in Brazil so I can see it happening.

Lossthief0/9

  • Discotek Media will license the entire Macross franchiseAnything is Possible if you believe hard enough and send enough voodoo dolls to Harmony Gold’s offices.
  • Symphogear Season 4 will be officially announced, but won’t air before the end of the yearThis one’s basically a gimme considering, but I like to live safely inside my blanket fort sometimes.
  • Rie Matsumoto will be announced for directing a new TV series, but not at BonesAfter the production quagmire with BBB’s finale I suspect Matsumoto won’t want to hang around at Bones, but given the show’s success regardless I don’t imagine she’ll be long between new productions.
  • Nisekoi will get a 3rd anime announced before the end of the mangaI want a 3rd season of Nisekoi.
  • The My Hero Academia anime will sell about average in disc sales (4~6k), but the manga will more than double sales per volume after it airs.

  • Aside from the projects she’s already attached to (Gundam IBO, Kiznaiver, Mayoiga), Mari Okada will be announced to be writing 3 new TV series before the end of the yearOkada is secretly 3 prolific gnomes in a trench coat.
  • Black Clover will get an anime at Studio PierrotAgain this is the safest of bets but it’s fitting that Wizard Naruto get sent to the same studio.
  • Dogakobo will finally announce Love Lab Season 2And it’ll be great and wonderful and bring the light back into our eyes and Maki and Riko will hold hands for a minute and it’ll be the cutest thing ever.

Tuna1/9

  • UQ Holder to get animatedIt’s been running long enough now and has decent sales so it should be bound to happen.
  • Assassination Classroom s3 announced to finish out the source manga contentManga sells well enough and if they keep s2 focused on just one school semester then there is plenty to still animate to finish out the series.
  • Black Clover to get animatedI believe it will be fast tracked along to be animated just as HeroAca and World Triger were (meaning anime announced before it hits chapter 90 this year).
  • Real Account to be animatedIt’s still going and selling strong so I think this is a wise one for someone to get. Trapped in a game world series are all the rage these days and it is good. And who wouldnt want to see king of derp face Yuuma animated.
  • KANA-BOON continues to do songs for anime, I’ll predict at least two more ops/eds this year from them
  • Naruto continues to be animated all throughout 2016I dont see the studio or the tv station wanting to give up on Naruto just yet and with the combination of fillers, Itachi story, and hopefully more original content they will keep it going throughout the year. I can’t imagine life without Naruto anime.
  • Another popular BL series gets a TV animeSuper Lovers is already coming, so I just hope for either a Ten Count anime or a His Favorite (Aitsu no Daihonmei) anime.
  • The Devil Is A Part Timer finally gets an s2
  • Daisuki.net gets a much needed makeover and gets a much larger share of the anime simulcast marketThat is, it expands much beyond Bandai and Aniplex anime.

Jacob0/9

  • Shida Naotoshi finally does key animation for Dragon Ball SuperSomehow Shida has managed to avoid doing any key animation for Dragon Ball for nearly three years now.
  • Tate Naoki finally does something good again and animates a long fight (over 30s)It’s been eons since Tate Naoki managed to hit the heights he did while working on One Piece throughout 2007-2010 but even as the production schedule on Dragon Ball Super somehow grows worse and worse and worse I want to believe he’ll pull through.
  • Tate Naoki quits being an animation supervisor for Dragon Ball Super and becomes a chief animation supervisor for itFed up with the shitty scheduling and correcting the even shittier drawings of rushed or simply bad animators, Tate switches to the role of chief animation supervisor so he can re-filter already corrected drawings into his style and save himself a lot of heartache.
  • Oonishi Ryou acts as an animation supervisor for Dragon Ball SuperHaving provided animation in the past for Dragon Ball, not to mention being one of the six animation supervisors for the 2013 film, Oonishi will make his debut as an animation supervisor for Dragon Ball Super and completely blow the world away with a cool episode that ignores Yamamuro Tadayoshi’s designs and kicks major ass.
  • Yamamuro Tadayoshi will storyboard and act as animation supervisor for another episode of Dragon Ball SuperAs with Episode #13 somehow miraculously being overseen by Yamamuro I suspect he will supply the series with another trite episode where the only highlight is a brief bit by a good animator while the rest of the episode makes me want to gouge out my eyes with its shitty storyboarding.
  • Dragon Ball Super Series Director Chioka Kimitoshi will storyboard an episodeIt’s got to happen sometime, right?
  • Itaoka Nishiki will solo an episode of PreCureIt’s got to happen sometime. Itaoka literally breaths in PreCure.
  • Hatano Morio will be announced as the director of the next Dragon Ball movieHatano’s two episodes of Dragon Ball Super have been two of the best in the series thanks to his adeptness at making conversations interesting. With the gloriously well-done Saint Seiya Omega Episode #51 also under his name he’s a prime candidate to direct a new film, especially if Chioka Kimitoshi doesn’t.
  • Kobayashi Naoki will direct and storyboard an episode of Naruto ShippuudenKobayashi’s been gone for far too long at this point to be up to nothing in particular. If he isn’t acting as an animation supervisor for an episode then he’s probably made his way to storyboard artist and director, especially as we grow closer and closer to the end of Shippuuden.

  • Girls Work won’t happenCheap development hell point.
  • Luck and Logic 2nd cour announcementI can’t see this one being a one-cour show because the Card Game itself is new and needs proper advertisement. L&L will most likely go the Wixoss route.

  • There will be 3 previously unannounced new noitaminA movies

  • Rewrite’s sales estimates are under 9kThis would be the worst for a Key adaptation and their name doesn’t mean as much as it used to. Aniplex is stupid.
  • New Kotenbu series novel releasedThere’s a few shorts that haven’t been collected in a novel and a new story just started in the magazine it runs it. Seems natural to have one this year.
  • Kumiko KyoAni figure announcedSomeone can hope, can’t they?

Blue-kun2/9

  • New Symphogear project announced at the end of Symphogear GX Live – I’m tempted to say we’re getting a movie to wrap up the events hinted at the end of GX, but it might be a new season too, or even a movie similar to the Nanoha 1st/2nd projects. Anyhow, with how well GX sold, as well as Thomas teasing that the series will return, I’m just making a bet that it’s going to be sooner rather than later.
  • Ookiku Furikabutte S3 announced – My bingo ballots are respecting tradition, and tradition dictates I must save anime year by year with my wishlists. In 2015 I finally got Sangatsu anime confirmation, so time to double down on Oofuri so we can get more examples of beautiful friendships between boys, all seen through the eyes of a woman. Hand holding, blushing, it’s the whole package, plus some of the finest anime baseball ever made!
  • Nana Mizuki announces marriage/relationship w/ SOMEONE – Speaking of tradition, here’s another one. It’s time for the Nana shipping corner, except this year I regret to inform that Takanori has missed his chance. His unsightly behaviour at Kouhaku, being kicked out of Ura Talk several times, all while being too hyped for Love Lives put the nail to the coffin of my previous ship. As such, I have no idea who’s worthy of Nana right now that isn’t already married, like Miyano. Which leads us to SOMEONE. Here’s hoping SOMEONE turns out to be someone cool.
  • Megumi Hayashibara cast for next Symphogear project – I think I’m going to end this year w/o a single point, but Megumi seems to be back in action and getting lots of roles lately, she’s signed to Starchild/King, is one of their better/most popular anison singers, and Symphogear is all about moving those chara CDs too. Not only that, she’s also friends with Nana IRL, so I imagine she’d be a great fit for a new villain or even a new ally. Basically, wishlist tier stuff, but boy I’d for it to happen. Against it I guess is the fact that Megumi might be /too/ big for ‘just’ chara singles, but… yeah.
  • Nanoha the 3rd Movie gets back into existence (basically news about it) – I’m not even sure how to describe this, but holy shit it’s been long enough without news, and I’m very optimistic right now so there we go. People are gonna come out and say the movie still exists, is being produced and hopefully will be released in my lifetime.
  • Yasuharu Takanashi to score Sousei no Onmyouji anime – They haven’t announced the composer for the series yet, but considering their choice for Wagakki Band in the OP/ED department and the story’s tone, I wouldn’t be too surprised if Yasuharu ended up filling the composer slot. His style seems like it’d be a great choice for the show, and one I’d definitely approve of.
  • Mahouka S2 finally happening – Onii-sama had to take a break during 2015 and open way to his arguably cooler clone, Kurogane Ikki, but now it’s time for the king of ORETUEEEEEEEEEEE protagonists to come back and nuke things. All while gallantly ignoring all the women in the planet who want a piece of him.
  • Yasuhiro Irie to return in 2016 to direct something – I tried this last year and got absolutely nothing out of it, but here we go again, I suppose. Someone, please, give Irie some work to do. Irie is great. Let’s not have the last thing Irie’s directed be Code:Fucking:Breaker of all things, even though even C:B was rather entertaining to watch thanks to his involvement.
  • Girls’ Work still not happening in 2016 – This is like my safety net, I don’t want to end this with 0 points so Girls’Work is brought back as it is never going to happen or something. Now watch them confirm it just to spite me 🙂

  • Dungeon Meshi manga will get an announcement of its anime adaptationThe manga is really popular in Japan right now , I would be surprised if it didn’t get one sooner or later.
  • Tokyo Ghoul re anime announcement You know it will happen.
  • Imaishi’s new full length TV anime announcement in 2016I noticed that there is a pattern between each of his projects, there is a 3 year gap between them , his last TV project was in 2013 so… If it wasn’t for Kiznaiver I would guess it’d air in 2016 but I don’t think that will happen. Edit: They announced that Imaishi is actually directing a new anime this spring… however I will keep this submission anyway even if the chances of this happening have decreased greatly and it defies all logic and sense. As Kamina says, ” Kick logic to the curb and do the impossible!

  • The iDOLM@STER Million Live Anime10th provided us with a PV that hints towards an anime even more than Cinderella Girls’ did, so I’m making this my safe point this year. Highly likely we’ll see the announcement during ML3rd’s final tour day.
  • Nishigori won’t be directing itMuch as I’d like based god Nishigori, his allegiance mainly seems to be with the main 765s, so I can see him stepping back and letting someone else direct while he either takes on a smaller role or just doesn’t get involved whatsoever.
  • It also won’t be a production disaster like Cinderella GirlsAfter the reactions dereani got I’d be amazed if they let something like this happen again. This is mainly wishful thinking though.
  • Megumi Kouno solo epAfter last year’s Kouno bingo leading to one great AD’d ep followed by nothing but disaster, the choice this year was either solo ep or she does character design for a show. Character design feels like something for next year though, so let’s cross our fingers and go with this.

Nainko: 1/9

  • Yuzuru Tachikawa to helm a new show( ¬¬)
  • No Girls’ Work Might also predict “Aniplex to announce the ‘Girls’ Work’ anime project is no more.”
  • Osomatsu-san in the Top 3 of best-selling series of 2016How is this not daring this early into the year?! In spite of the huge sales predictions, it is already kinda sure to finish third to Attack on Titans S2 and Love Live! Sunshine. so the Madoka sequel just needs to launch this year to send me flying.
  • Nichigo’s lineup for the year as follows; Spring/Summer: Boku no Hero Academia, and Fall: Nanatsu no Taizai S2 As per the Nichigo tradition, HeroAca is very likely to be two cours long, even though Bones’ schedule for the year makes it hard to believe it will be so.
  • Takashi Kojima to work on Under the DogThe Ando connection, etc. Plus the guy’s last work goes back to last year’s April, so almost a year ago. So I suspect he is on something big, which Under the Dog i- *freezes as he realizes this point is DOA.*

  • There will be at least 7 more series in 2016 with the basic Episode 1 premise of “”boy goes to “”magic”” high school, see’s a girl naked & fights her””A little ambitious here, but this late 2015 trend may very well define 2016 as well.
  • A non-crowdfunded Little Witch Academia Series will be announced, but wont air until 2017Netflix dubbing this basically means they’re thirsty af for it.

zetsubouzhainu5/9

  • Crunchyroll announces a home video release in 2016
  • Netflix or Hulu announces that it is on the committee for (or has otherwise funded the creation of) an original Japanese-made animeJust randomly calling a show a “”Netflix original”” obviously doesn’t count.
  • An English-language release of one of the Diabolik Lovers games is announced
  • Idolm@ster sideM anime project is announcedBecause it didn’t happen in 2015 and I swear 2016 will be the year okay.
  • New Free! or High Speed! anime project is announcedBecause while I’m pretty sure this won’t happen, it definitely won’t happen with THAT kind of attitude.
  • Idolish 7 anime is announced
  • Touken Ranbu anime is announcedThis one is probably too easy. I would say that it ends up actually selling better than Kancolle anime, but I think we won’t find out until 2017.
  • A new buffet-style all-you-can-read manga service with subscription opens in North AmericaAnd also it’s primarily NOT porn.

  • Ono Manabu will go back to direct the sequel of a show he previously worked on

kViN1/9

  • Official announcement regarding DesperaKizumonogatari used to be my dream/memetic guess, but Oishi went and made it happen for real! Going with Despera as a replacement, since out of all the forever stalled projects it seems like the most likely to succeed (yes, still can’t imagine Dream Machine working without Kon). ABe having acknowledged its existence a few months back is the hope to cling up to!
  • Two Tsutomu Mizushima projects get announcedIf it were about any other director in the industry, this prediction would be immediately doomed. Nothing this winter and an already announced Spring 2016 show would give him one extra show at best, but since Mizushima is Mizushima I’ll bet on at least two. The man’s a machine known for his crazy management skills, and his demand is high. Make it happen, even if it doesn’t involve Shirobako S2.
  • Atsuko Ishizuka directs another 2016 animeAnd speaking of multitasking directors, Ishizuka’s very long absence before PoS where she did nothing whatsoever still seems suspicious. Expecting her to be up to more than we know.
  • Commercial release of Animator ExpoI used to be entirely convinced that Expo would be released on Bluray, both months keep passing and still no word on it. Pretty please?
  • Mirai Arise actually happens within 2016Soon it’ll be a year since it was quietly revealed at AnimeJapan with a teaser than Bandai’s never officially uploaded anywhere, yet AJ 2016’s site doesn’t even list it (yet) amongst its featured titles. I want to believe, but at this point it’s doubtful whether it still exists or not.
  • KyoAni key staff debut this year (director, series director, character designer)The obvious candidate is Ogawa becoming the series director for Eupho S2 (something he hasn’t done for a TV series yet), but we could even be surprised by a new designer stepping up to cover the hole Horiguchi left.
  • Koe no Katachi breaks 1.5 billion box office grossSeems like more or less the point where it’d be considered an unarguable hit, since it’s the level where popular manga like Gintama or Naruto tend to have their films around. Chances are the movie will be released late in 2016 and thus rank well into 2017 so it better be successful fast!
  • Hiroyasu Ishida directs a new piece of animationIt’s been years since the last one at this point, and I’m not exactly a fan of Colorido’s new director after Noruda so I’ll believe in Tete to save me.
  • Death March kara Hajimaru Isekai Kyousoukyoku animeAs usual, ending with an LN adaptation randomly chosen on Amazon. This one sure has a lot of LN words in its title.

 

Somehow this is already the 4th iteration of this silly contest, time really does fly. No fundamental changes this year – you only need to send 9 anime related predictions, accompanied by your reasoning of why you chose them if you feel like explaining your thought process. Won’t get you extra points, but it gives you more bragging rights in case you correctly guess something. This year I’ll be using Google Forms to make submitting your ballots even easier, just fill in this survey before January 15. Those who have already sent me their lists beforehand can go ahead and resubmit them there, otherwise I’ll do it myself. The form page allows editing your responses so you’re all free to change them as much as you please before the deadline. You can contact me on twitter @Yuyucow if you have any questions about this.

Rules:

  • The contest consists of two parts: the first person to reach 5 points and the grand award for the one with the most correct predictions by the end of the year.
  • Anything qualifies as long as it’s related to anime and newsworthy. New anime announcements are going to populate everyone’s lists, but anything from “Mizuki Nana to marry Yukari Tamura” to “My little sister is a Zombie becomes this decade’s top seller” is fair game. That includes western news, if they’re remarkable enough (so “Sentai licenses every show of any given season” is a no-go, but “Nozomi to release Utena’s blurays on the US” works). In any case, I’ll contact you if there’s any entry that clearly breaks this rule.
  • Predicting rumored announcements is allowed as long as there hasn’t been an official source mentioning them beforehand, but participants are encouraged to be brave with their guesses. Sure to happen news kill the fun, and anyone who goes overboard with those will be asked to change their list.
  • Since it happened multiple times last year – don’t worry if one of your predictions comes true before the 15th, it obviously won’t count but you can send a replacement. And yes, as of writing this in 2016 it’s already happened.

As usual, good luck everyone! Newcomers are welcome, no expertise is required to have fun with this.
