Spring 2011 anime plans

What I've decided to watch. Based almost solely on studio, and Steins;Gate due to hype + looks like it might be interesting.

the two SHAFT shows, (Maria Holic Alive, Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko)
the two Manglobe shows, (Deadman Wonderland, Kami Nozmizo Shiru Sekai 2)
and the KyoAni show. (Nichijou)

Not sure about:
the xebec shows (Hen Zemi, Sofuteni)
NoitaminA shows (C: The Money of Soul and Posibility Control, Ano Hana)
and the PA Works one.(Hanasaku Iroha)

5 Centimetres per Scecond (3 year delay -_-;)

Finally got my copy of the UK (Australian) edition of one of my favourite anime "film"s.
I will not be reviewing the film itself, which I first saw over four years ago, but the shambolic dvd release.

Much as Manga totally failed in alleviating fears I had about video quality (actually give accurate product listings, Amazon still thinks it's sub only), it was actually a good transfer. The standard for UK (Australian) anime dvds is a transfer from the US release, not from the source film, which leaves very bad artifacts form having the frame rate changed twice (e.g. interlace between 3 frames).
