1. IS: Infinite Stratos
2. Hidan no Aria
3. Mayo Chiki
-----Confirmed until here-----
4. 僕は友達が少ない - Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai (TS: I have few friends)
5. 機巧少女は傷つかない-Kikou Shoujo wa Kizutsukanai
It makes much sense, since IS = January, Hidan no Aria = April releases. You can automatically assume that they will air season by season, and also probably taking time slot of Friday night 1:25. It's just speculation though. You can also see both Haganai and Kikou Shoujo has there own website popped up, which means there are high possibility that they might get animated.
It seems like PV for both Mahou Shoujo Madoka☆Magica and Yumekui Merry is being shown in today's comiket 79. This will last 2 days more and we can just wait someone to upload videos for those PVs soon enough. According to Twitter; Yumekui Merry PV from Comiket will be updated soon in TBS, so I can't wait.

Here is yet another anticipation ranking for Winter 2011, held by Dengeki-online. It's not much better than Anime-one survey. All hail 2ch for the best, the most objective, ideal and realistic rankings of all. Every 'anime needs plot mehmehmeh-mehmeh' or 'shit moe shit cute girl' or 'noitaminA is the best' fag can go to hell. (*trollfaec)
Nevertheless, it seems like the first place is again fucked up as usual; according to my prediction Kimi ni Todoke will get the highest TV rating, but never good DVD/BD sales, definitely not any better than first season unless it has better pacing. IS is the only thing that is constantly good in all three list. Yumekui Merry was higher than Madoka for the first time. Onii-chan no Koto and Zombie desuka is just orz... Mitsudomoe is fail guaranteed anyway.
To sum up, only thing that is actually related to the sales of DVD/BD is 2ch ranking. Others are either fujoushi powah or TV rating fight.

If you've seen this article, you will find how fucked up this ranking is. Respect 2ch.
1. Starry Sky (222 votes)
2. Gosick (138 votes)
3. IS: Infinite Stratos (135)
4. Mitsudomoe 2 (133)
5. Fractale (129)
6. Kimi ni Todoke 2nd season (124)
7. Kore wa Zombie Desuka? (123)
8. Oniichan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janain Dakara ne!! (118)
9. Mahou Shoujo Madoka☆Magica (117)
10. Yumekui Merry (107)
This list is clearly 'shit' just by the fact that STA-SKA is in the first place. Also having ONIICHAN NO KOTO above MADOKA and MERRY is clearly fucked up result.

If I remember, last quater, the same survey had Arakawa Under the Bridge 2nd season in the third place, Sora no Otoshimono in 4th, Kami Nomi in 5th. All of them are having unimpressive DVD/BD sales. Only thing this list guarantees is Starry☆Sky's sales; scaaaary fujoushis aka Dark Side.
Due to my hyperactivity on Madoka Magica through the past few days, my body and soul is exhausted. Sleeping 5 hours a days, even though it is holiday in my country. So, I will only be posting blogs in specific time at once (11 o'clock pm, everyday), with all the anime related news and 2ch related informations.
There will be important announcement that is exclusive to Megami Magazine. I wonder what it is, but knowing that this will be the whole new announcement that was never said in other magazine.... New Nanoha animation?... Nanoha Vivid or Force?....

.... important announcement everywhere... It's not even surprising anymore.
When I go around the forum, I find people who have wrong understandings on 'good' and 'bad' DVD/BD sales. People say 'animation industry' is falling or whatever. Some says certain anime is financial failure even though DVD sales are actually good. Some underestimates Bakemonogatari's popularity, when its sales is actually 'IMPOSSIBLE'.
Now, I will give some better understandings on how specific sales figure represents the success of late-night TV series. All the sales of Movies are out of question, as the scale is different and it also has various other source of income from filming itself. Success of so called 'late night animes' are totally dependent of the DVD/BD sales.
Here is the list;
<<DVD+BD sales and its respective meanings>>
~1000: The lowest late night animation can reach, no failure can be less than this. However, it is common sales for most of main stream kid or shonen animes which does not consider DVD sales from the start anyway. (Example: Munto, Natsu no Arashi, Fairy Tale, A lot of noitaminA) 1000~2000: Failure. It's not as bad as above, but still very sad. (Ef - a tale of melodies, Dance in the Vampire Bund, Kaichou wa Maid-sama! Mitsudomoe) 2000~3000: It has some fans, but didn't sell due to popularity crisis or original breaker. (True Tears) 3000~4000: This is about break-even point for most of animes, aka Manabi line. Thus, it is still along the line of failure (Maria+Holic, Ga-rei Zero, Arakawa Under the Bridge, Baccano!) 4000~5000: This is also about break-even point for most of animes. This is an average achievement. (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, 5000~6000: This is a line where you can expect 2nd season. Good achievement for any late night animes. (Amagami SS, Sekirei ~Pure Engagement~) 6000~7000: I consider this as semi-hit, but it varies. This is a bit ambiguous line, since you can't really call it 'a big hit', but it is still a good result. Sometimes, there are animes where you had big anticipation, but ended up being not good. (Highschool of the Dead, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Seikon no Qwaser, Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu) 7000~8000: Semi-hit. Staffs should have party. But still ambiguous to call it extremely successful. (Katanagatari, Pani Poni Dash!) 8000~10000: Very good result, but I consider it more of a cult hit, where otaku plays a lot of role. (All Hidamari Sketch series, Fruits Basket) 10000~12000: Huge success for otaku oriented late night series. Fujoushi-hit series is often included here. Some people who aren't otaku might have heard of it. (Striker Witches, Durarara!, Natsume Yuujinchou) 12000~15000: Most of hardcore otakus will own series with this sales. This is cut -line where you can call 'otaku hit' or getting 'original content boost', although it is highly opinionated. (Gintama, Aria) 15000~20000: This is already at the level where those who don't usually by Animation DVD/BD get into the play. Massive hit. It is still heavily influenced by otaku buying power and media-mix boost. (Working!, Full Metal Alchemist!-Brotherhood, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Sengoku Basara) 20000~30000: Die-hard fans and votaries come into the play. However, it already passed the level of only appealing otakus, but any animation/manga manias. However, most of the series have hard time being consistently on this level of the sales through the volume. (Nanoha, Fate/Stay Night, Lucky Star) 30000~50000: Marked on animation history. Legend. (K-On!, Suzumiya Haruhi, Angel Beats!, Fullmetal Alchemist, Macross Frontier, Ano Hana) 50000~100000: Almost impossible for late night animation. Gundam, Bakemonogatari and Madoka Magica are the only TV series that reached this point. Godly sales. However, it is common for OVA or Movies (Kara no Kyokai, Gundam SEED, Bakemonogatari, Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica) 1000000~: Only movies or OVA (Evangelion, Gundam Unicorn)
Edited: someone in ANN had modified list that is 'similar' or referenced from mine. So, I'm adding a bit of his opinion too, to give better understanding. You can also look at his one too, but remember, my list is much simpler version as it does not take account to the first volume sales, but average volume sales.
Edited: Added fucking Madoka Magica and Ano Hana

meh.... it sickens me when someone tries to interpret sales data without actually knowing what is success and what isn't.
Homepage says that 'Hoshi o Kodomo' (Children who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below)'s main female ("Asuna") will be voiced by Kanemoto Hisako, voice actor of Ika Musume.
This movie doesn't really fall into my category of taste, but Shinkai Makoto is certainly using better seiyuu than before. It also lists Irino Miyu, Takeguchi Junko, Inoue Kazuhiko, Shimamoto Sumi, Hidaka Rina, Orikasa Fumiko
No you fuckin Anon, fuck you. I have never posted shit in 4chan ever, so I will. Posting my blog link in 4chan by myself is always worst idea ever anyway. That's equivalent of suicide. Then, why would I do that?
