Version 5 Release notes (2012.03.01) :
Most changes are about airing dates, as you’d expect.
The main things you need to know here are the removal of Gokujyo・(moved to Spring), as well as Space Pirate Captain Harlock and Gaiking (new tentative for 2013). A few additions as well, but I’ll let you read the changelog for that‘s list of URLs has been updated accordingly.

Looks like we’re almost there for the Winter season, as there are very few additions : One TV series and one movie (theatrical release). While most shows will start airing in January, the Winter season is just a couple of weeks away.
A couple of notes though :
Gokujyo—. may be removed next version, as there’s been no update about it. Same thing for Harlock and Gaiking.

3 new TV series, one OAD, several updates/fixes on airing dates and other stuff.

Nothing really special with this release, but enjoy anyway 😉

Version 1 Release notes (2011.09.10) :
And here it is. Took quite some time to redo everything from scratch, but I hope that you’ll like the new design. The chart uses a dedicated redirection service @ to quickly access an anime’s official website. It’ll have further options later on.
Chart is in PNG format to avoid a loss of colors with the “reds”.
The image has been optimized to have a reduced size without any noticeable loss of quality.
Be careful, in the chart the date format is mm/dd/yyyy.
As usual, feel free to point out mistakes, omissions, and/or suggestions : They are all welcome.
Perosnally looking forward to Recorder to Randoseru, Mouretsu Pirates, Inu x Boku SS, Nisemonogatari and Another (yay, horror anime).

Enjoy this first release of the Winter season.

      • Zana
      • October 10th, 2011 - 03:52:09 PST

      I have no idea about a HSotD sequel. It’s not on moonphase and no announcement on animenewsnetworks either; at least for now 😉

    • Erulim
    • October 10th, 2011 - 03:00:24 PST

    Thanks a lot Zana-Oujisan i hobe that you can get a good pest of rest now!
    I belief that this winterchart will not become big this year, there are too many series in the Fallseason with 20+ Episodes ^^

      • Zana
      • October 10th, 2011 - 04:35:43 PST

      You never know 😉 Companies need anime sales to live anyway. We’re not getting less than 23/24 series I guess.

  2. Highschool DxD, really hope this, so long for perfect ecchi anime =))

  3. hmm……most of these i hav read it in reports but tks anyway cant really keep track which anime is winter 2012 or spring 2012 sometimes

    • Lime
    • October 12th, 2011 - 12:40:27 PST

    Highschool DxD, ofc! I’ve been waiting for it for months!

    Besides that, Inu x Boku SS and Baby, Please Kill Me! look cool.

    Oh, and of course, I can’t forget Zero no Tsukaima!

  4. Winter season is already coming together. Thanks!

    I was wondering, how come you release these charts as images instead of just a webpage?

      • Zana
      • October 17th, 2011 - 11:14:50 PST

      You’re welcome :)
      There are several reasons why I chose the chart over the webpage. Among the main ones :
      – People often get discouraged easily when they see a post with a huge quantity of text in it (summaries, airing dates, etc) and they often scroll down the post very fast and/or don’t even bother to read. While the quantity of text remains roughly the same in an image chart, it looks and feels more “compact” to the reader’s eye, thus encouraging the reading even if, in the end, the amount to read is the same without an image (even more true with my chart since I also put summaries for OVA/OAD, etc, resulting in a big quantity of text). This looks dumb, but we instinctively think that way. While it is true that some people like to read and aren’t bothered by the length of a post, most people are not fond of seeing a lengthy post.
      – People like to share content they like on their own website. Copy/pasting a whole, lengthy post feels like plagiarism, and most people do not like doing this (which is the right way of thinking). However, sharing a chart is much more convenient, as you can easily give credits to the original maker (even if he/she is already mentioned in the chart). What’s more, readers of this shared post will immediately know the full content of the post when they land on it, seeing the chart on top of the post : “Okay, that’s what he is talking about”, instead of scrolling down the lengthy post (we’re getting back to the first point I developed above). A picture is sometimes more appealing than text too. People like to see “everything” on their screen at once, so a chart is a good way to make things look “concise”.

      As you can see, everything is purely “suggestive”, but the end result is different, at least from my point of view 😉

      However (yes, there’s more!), a webpage allows much richer content than an image, like links, medias, etc, and you can post as much detail as you’d like. In the end, both have their pros and cons. I’m very well aware of that, and as you’ve probably read elsewhere on Neregate, I’m planning on something very big regarding anime charts, although it’s gonna take several months to develop (biggest obstacle right now is my motivation, to be honest). I also have a small idea (which should be easier to code) that I may be implementing shortly (motivation required, too :>). The blog itself keeps me quite busy, so giving myself an extra push is not always simple.

      Well, that was a lengthy reply but I wanted to say all this, so no regrets here.

        • Raitsui
        • October 17th, 2011 - 11:28:57 PST

        Sorry, too much to read, I skipped it ;D.

          • Raitsui
          • October 17th, 2011 - 11:32:50 PST

          Meh.. I wanted to adjust my sophisticated joke but the no-edit-button destroyed my plans.

  5. Actually the chart is nice It make me want to read maybe because of how it is being served it’s more light for non readers.

  6. hey this anime is also getting an anime adaptation by sunrise

    btw, my weak candidates: Kyousogiga, Recorder and Backpack, Inu x Boku SS, Milky Holmes 2, Symphogear, Another, Ano Natsu de Matteru, Gokujyo.

      • Zana
      • October 20th, 2011 - 17:45:23 PST

      Hai, Airetta-kun (chan?). I’ve confirmed it on moonphase 😉
      Will be added to the chart’s v2 this coming weekend.

  7. i kinda have to disagree on the sacred blacksmith thingy even if its cliche such a simple plot it was interesting the true bond between luke and lisa aria and cecila and wuld love to more awesome fights in s2

  8. and more importantly its nt a shame every anime has a value even if u dun lyk it

      • Zana
      • October 21st, 2011 - 19:17:54 PST

      Well it’s all up to the individual in the end.
      I quite enjoyed the potential after the first episode, but afterwards all I saw was cliche dialogues, loads of fanservice and predictable situations. When I say “it’s a shame”, it’s because to me, this anime had a good enough story to make a great series, but it ended below average because the production decided otherwise.
      It’s my personal point of view, don’t take it as a general opinion of course 😉

      • haha no worries its nt like i take it so far as a general opinion its jus i wanted to say wat i feel about the sacred blacksmith or else i doubt i can sleep easy smiles~

    • Rennie
    • October 25th, 2011 - 02:14:19 PST

    Thank you for the updated v2 chart

  9. hmm……all of these i also know but tks anyway btw why u say the remix of k-on ed you know/hate well? its a very popular song u know……

      • Zana
      • October 25th, 2011 - 13:58:00 PST

      While there are a lot of K-ON fans out there, there are also many K-ON haters, which is why I say that 😉

      • well tat is true but there are some tat make their hate of anime really very obvious like gundam age nt tat i hate it though

    • Lime
    • October 25th, 2011 - 15:28:24 PST

    Uncle Zana, not sure if you’re aware of it, but I think they’ve announced a Queen’s Blade new season for Winter. And thanks for the v2! Still expecting much more animes for next version!

      • Zana
      • October 25th, 2011 - 15:45:31 PST

      The Rebellion one? Yea I’ve heard of it a little, but I didn’t find any evidence that it was for this Winter (yet).
      If you have a reliable source however, I’m all ears 😉

        • Lime
        • October 26th, 2011 - 07:57:41 PST

        Yeah, you’re right. I went to check and it didn’t say anywhere that it was coming this Winter already ^^” I guess I just assumed that, sorry.

          • Zana
          • October 26th, 2011 - 18:19:45 PST

          No problem at all.
          Better safe than sorry 😉

    • Horo
    • October 25th, 2011 - 17:22:37 PST

    Instead of having “plot summary not available yet” on BRS, why not have “Television anime based on the song by Supercell and its accompanying music video with illustrations by Huke”?

      • Zana
      • October 25th, 2011 - 17:30:18 PST

      Yea that could be an idea. Though for TV series I prefer to put the summary rather than the “where it originates from”. Since the summary isn’t available yet, and as it could be a different setting than the OVA, I preferred not to put a summary on this one.

    • Ingu
    • November 7th, 2011 - 01:33:16 PST

    zana how about adding info about bluray movie releases? can’t find any site english site with such info and it would be nice to know when i will be able to see some movie (whom of us can go to japan to watch sth in theatre… we all watch only dvd/bluray releases :D)

  10. Sacred Seven: Shirogane no Tsubasa
    -is this also winter ?

    more info

      • Zana
      • November 15th, 2011 - 17:33:35 PST

      Yes. It’s actually the “Night Edition” that I put in the chart.
      Night edition because :
      “The special edition will focus on the fighting between the Sacred Takers Alma and Night, as well as the fight with Kenmi from Night’s point of view. The re-edited version will have new scenes, particularly of Night’s past, and a new dialogue recording.”
      I’ll fix the title in the next release 😉

    • November 23rd, 2011 - 12:17:52 PST

    great wokr

    btw I saw in this and another preview poster (

    2 images, I was suprised because their DJ Max songs

    one was Sunny Side

    the other was In My Heart

      • Zana
      • November 23rd, 2011 - 14:06:28 PST

      If you mean the “Fillers”, they’re images drawn by a Japanese artist 😉
      Sometimes you may indeed recognize a character.

        Zana can you verify if this is real or not? It’s anime chart of spring 2012

          • Zana
          • December 15th, 2011 - 20:05:09 PST

          My first trollchart T_T I’m moved.
          Nah, this ain’t a real one (this template is from an old chart of mine). I do plan on releasing the Spring chart very soon though.

          It’s well done, kudos to the dude who made that 😈
