Why am I sighing, you ask? Compare this with last season. The number of series on my list is close, but the Low Chance section is much more populous this time around, isn’t it? I should note that everything under Low Chance, with the exception of one or two series, were originally completely absent from this list.

Last season, I ended up liking everything but Daimidaler. I somehow doubt that this time around. Everything under Low Chance gets one episode to wow me this time, since they’re barely on the list to begin with.

A side-note: Hanamonogatari is on this list and the previous one because it was delayed. No matter – I need to finish the preceeding anime before watching it anyway.
