[Spoilers] [General Anime Winter 2019] Penguins Are Never a Coincidence

🐧 Welcome to the Winter 2019 General Anime Thread! 🐧

🐧 These seasonal threads tend to focus on currently airing anime, but you're welcome to post about anything anime or anime-adjacent, old or new. However, in the rare cases where discussion of a particular show becomes too overwhelming or too much of a hot-button topic, it may be preferred to move that discussion to a show-specific thread. We also have a thread specifically for non-current anime.

🐧 Please note that we do not have much of a spoiler policy here - avoid spoiling major things you may know about upcoming episodes if you are familiar with the source material for an adaptation, but otherwise, most anything goes. Try to be considerate, but also expect unmarked spoilers for anything that's aired. If you would prefer a more restrictive policy, you can find one in the thread for non-current anime.

🐧 Using a commonly recognized name for the show you're talking about is helpful - it's not required, but in the past we've had issues with overly-clever names leading to confusion among threadgoers who aren't familiar with any given show.

So, what new shows is everyone looking forward to? I'm pretty excited for Yakusoku no Neverland, Lord El-Melloi II-sei no Jikenbo and Boogiepop wa Warawanai. In terms of sequels/second seasons there's Kakegurui×× and Fukigen na Mononokean: Tsuzuki.

Kemono Friends II, in the hopes they catch lightning in a bottle again
Thing is, that lightning-catcher is writing and directing Kemurikusa this season, after being unceremoniously booted off Kemono Friends by the production company. I'd look there instead, especially if you enjoyed the playful surreal/postapocalyptic mood.

I'll be curious to see what they do with The Rising of the Shield Hero. Yes, another Isekai, but I've been reading the manga and I've been enjoying it a great deal, despite it's problematic beginning, as well as what goes on with some of the characters.

My hype for Winter includes:
Manaria Girlfriends
Kouya no Kotobuki Hikoutai
because I have a soft spot for anime about girls that fly
Ueno-san wa Bukiyou
3D Kanojo
because I enjoyed the first season very much
Kemurikusa because Tatsuki-kantoku is my president
Meiji Tokyo Renka because it has Morohoshi Sumire in it
Virtual-san ga Miteiru because I am a big virtual youtuber fan
Girly Air Force because I have a soft spot for anime about girls that fly
Promised Neverland because it has Morohoshi Sumire in it
Date a Live because Origami
Egao no Daika because the first episode seemed pretty promising
Magical Girl SpecOps Asuka because
Endro because the trailer looks absolutely amazing
Pastel Memories because the trailer makes it look like an absolute trainwreck that I cannot look away from; I mean, are those the Monogatari school uniforms? Is that one girl a clone of Kagamin? I have no idea what's going on in the most wonderful way.
And obviously Precures in Space but that should go without saying.

The sooner that isekai can get that slavery fetish out of its system, the better.

I like all these things. What is it though?
The Adventures of Captain Sensible, Magical Girl edition.

The evil magical creatures act like mafiosi. The heroines kill a lot of people. The government is trying to deal with Russian bootleg Magical Girls working for the Mafiya.
