With four more sets of airing dates announced over this weekend, the April 2012 anime
season is now oh-so-close to being fully scheduled. Starting with the cutest anime from this latest batch, Acchi Kocchi
is now set for an April 5 debut, according to its official website
. A few more character profiles have also been posted there, and mirrored in the local gallery
The most anticipated anime from this batch, however, is probably Hyouka
, the new mystery / school series created by fan-favorite studio Kyoto Animation. One of its official website
s is now listing it for an April 22 debut.
Then there's Kimi to Boku. 2
, now revealed to start airing from April 2. Its official website is also streaming a commercial
for this second season, although without any actual footage, so I won't bother recording it for local safekeeping.
And last (certainly least, too) for this checkpoint, Beyblade Zero-G
- the 7th TV anime series in the Metal Fight Beyblade franchise - starts on
April 8. It's once again based on the Beyblade spinning-top game franchise, but this time featuring a new main character named... Ah, forget it, who the hell cares, anyway?Update:
Not so fast! Here's one more: Shimajirou no Wow!
, starts on April 2 according to AniDB's listing
So it doesn't seem to be titled Shimajirou no Wow!, as previously announced.
(strike that, I had mixed things up...) But either way, another anime that's going straight to my "Ignore Bin".Update #2:
Also added the second season of Recorder to Randsell
to the Spring 2012 line-up as a new title - Recorder to Randsell Re
- since AniDB saw fit to separate it from the ongoing first season. "Re♪" begins on April 6, by the way.
