2014 Winter Anime Season Preview

2013 is definitely not the best year for anime. Against the usual trend, Summer actually give us the best lineup, followed by a below-average Fall season, not just by Fall standard, but any standard. So how does the Winter fare? Well, I can only say it doesn't hold any surprises – it is as insipid as it has always been. There is the usual crop of fanservice driven shows that's the signature of every Winter. I don't know what I would be looking forward to if not for Bones' comeback after a year of absence. Oh right, seems like the much anticipated Sailor Moon remake will be finally making its appearance. So without further ado.
