[Spoilers] [General Anime Winter 2018] Cute Girls Doing Cute Things (In Antarctica!)

Winter 2018 Anime Streaming Info!

Same drill as usual. I'll update this list as announcements are made. I'm not going to list the stuff carrying over from the previous season, nor am I going to list one-shots, OVA's, and Movies, since those frequently don't get streamed (sadly). I'm also not listing stuff that looks to be little kids shows that doesn't have a streaming or simulcast site yet. If there's something you want added to the list though, let me know and I'll be happy to do so.

Crunchi-Funi Note – With the streaming deal between Crunchyroll and Funimation, Funimation seems to mostly be airing only the Simuldubs of stuff, and that anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks(or more) after the Sub airs. So I’m only going to bother listing Funimation links if they have something that Crunchyroll does not.

Thread Requests

These are not hard Thread Rules, but are general requests for users.
Spoiler: Show
  • The GATE Rule (aka Politics get ugly) – Some shows deal with touchy political and historical issues. Minor discussion as it relates to the show at hand is fine, but this is not the place for in depth discussions and arguments. If it’s getting heated or involved, please spin off a separate thread.
  • Say My Name! – When possible try and use the actual name of the show when you discuss a new episode. Cute nicknames for a show are amusing and welcome, but they can get confusing, especially if there are multiple shows with a similar premise airing. The OP for the thread will list the common English titles for shows, sometimes the Japanese, and if there’s a common and widely accepted Nickname, we’ll try and include that as well.
  • What is anime, really? – The definition of “What Is Anime?” is a complex one without a real answer, so let’s avoid it, shall we? This thread is generally for discussion of animation created and airing in Japan, but if it deviates a bit to Chinese, Korean, or even American animated shows in an anime style, that is fine, though lengthy discussions of individual shows should merit their own separate thread.
  • Spoilers? – The thread is here to discuss episodes as they air (or simulcast), so there will be spoilers in posts. However since not everyone gets to watch these as they air (due to personal scheduling or watching them a week later when CR has them for free members), it would be appreciated if Really Major Spoilers were put in an SBlock.

According to an official announcement in it's trailer and on it's website, Fate/Extra Last Encore will start streaming on Netflix on 01/31/2018. This does not mean it's been officially licensed by Netflix outside of Japan, as the announcement makes no mention of that. I don't know how that would effect your list but I just wanted to bring it up.

Well, that’s just Prime.

This is a top notch thread title. And there are some really interesting titles coming up, too.

I'm not sure I could go more than two sentences without comparing this show to Uta no Prince-sama. I like the manager a lot, she has this "earnest worker" vibe that reminds me of Aoi from Shirobako or Aoba from New Game. Very different feeling from the main character of Utapri. I thought it was hilarious how she was all depressed about the turn out from their first show, but the guys were all realistic about it. I don't know where the show's heading but I hope it's not a repeat of the "Let's focus on each character's individual personal problems that it is the producer's job to solve" thing that Utapri did. I sort of get the feeling that "picking a boy and helping him get over his bullshit" is a common otome trope? I'd much rather have cute boy hijinks than cute boys having to be taught how not to be jerks.

Updated. i usually try and take notes as I see announcements made the weeks before the end of a season, but as I said in the old thread the Holidays are usually very busy for me so I didn't have the time this year. So I only had the stuff I was able to find at a quick glance.

Thanks :)

The last time this topic happened, it was 2 seasons ago, but only because the resident reality warper accidentally warped them to the South Pole. :D

Overlord S2 (Anime) #1

In which we Overlord harder. It's the Lizardman War arc, in which Ains Ooal Gown starts a war it didn't actually need to. Um.

The Emiya Family's Menu Today (Anime) #1

Oh, its the food pr0n spinoff of Fate. I'm going to peck someone if it gets subverted like Prisma Illya did. :X

Alice & Zoroku. Episode 1 did that by pure and complete accident, for all of half a minute. Then it got too cold, so they had to portal again. :3

I move they cross The Emiya Family's Menu Today with Ben-To! and we get Masters and Servants having violent, all-out duels over half-priced food.

Holy crap. Shinji shows up with Rider. That's... wow. Yikes.
