Winter Anime Season

There's always so much indecision about what to watch, and something I would have been interested in always slips under my radar...  I guess it shows how usable these charts are for determining what you want to watch.  Oh and the chart comes from The Cart Driver.

There's some things I'll probably check out, but as for stuff I know I'm watching, guaranteed, there isn't much.  It's mostly DVD/BD specials.  In fact, it's entirely DVD/BD specials.

DVD/BD specials I'm interested in:
  • Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu: The TV series was great, and hey, more Hideyoshi.
  • Shinryaku! Ika Musume: These were announced shortly after episode 5 aired.  I guess the fan reaction to episode 5's third part, the infinitely cute mini-Ika, was so great they realized the fans wanted more mini-Ika.  These don't come out until the 5th and 6th BDs are released (April 20, 2011 and May 18, 2011, respectively), so it'll be a while.
Like I said before it's tough to gauge whether or not I'm going to enjoy a series based on a short description on a chart.  I'll just point out a few things that randomly caught my eye regardless of what I'm going to check out.  I've done no research at all on any of these other than what the chart says, so really your guess is as good as mine as to whether or not any of these will be good.
  • Houkago no Pleiades: The Gainax show for the winter season.  Their stuff is always worth checking out (I mean, they're currently doing Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt).  This seems to be a collaborative project between them and car manufacturer Subaru.  My guess is it'll involve cars... and somehow Gainax's signature WTF elements.  Will have to watch at least one episode.
  • Is this a Zombie?: Zombies + mahou shoujo?  Color me intrigued.
  • Infinite Stratos: Seems like the requisite harem anime for the winter season.  A weapons system that can only be used by females, except there's only one guy in the whole world that can use it?  Yeah.
  • I don't like you at all, Big Brother!: Main female character has a brother complex and destroys his non-incest porn?  She's also possibly not related to him?  Seems like a pretty solid wincest premise to me.
  • Dragon Crisis: This caught my eye solely because it involves dragons, and anything involving dragons has got to be interesting, right?
  • Yuri Seijin Naoko-san: The only OAV in this list, it looks like the requisite fanservice OAV.  A planet inhabited by lesbians?  lol
  • Freezing: Quite possibly another harem show, but with extra-dimensional enemies, a personal vendetta (said enemies killed the main character's sister), and of course combat thrown in.  Definitely intrigued.
  • Starry Sky: Reverse harem show.  Previously all-male school goes co-ed, main character is the only female who enrolled? Yeah.
  • Wandering Son: I just noticed this as I was doing my last look-over of the chart.  Boy mistaken for girl, ends up seated next to boyish girl in class?  Could lead somewhere, or could be boring.  Dunno.
So there you have it.
