TOKYOPOP's Must-See Spring Anime

We know, we know - it seems like just yesterday that the new crop of winter anime came out, but that's no reason not to get unreasonably excited about what April has in store.

1. Naruto SD: Rock Lee no Seishun Full-Power Ninden
Finally, the Green Beast of Konoha will get his own, albeit super-deformed, starring vehicle as Naruto SD: Rock Lee no Seishun Full-Power Ninden hits the airwaves. The plus side to Studio Pierrot's pint-sized, huge-headed style? Rock Lee's eyebrows are even bigger.

2. Medaka Box
Can GAINAX do any wrong? Possibly, but it seems unlikely. Medaka Box  follows high school students who uncover a secret program that is experimenting on students with supernatural abilities. Honestly, you had us at Medaka Box.

3. Eureka Seven: Astral Ocean
A sequel to the preposterously popular Eureka SevenEureka Seven: Astral Ocean boasts awesome mecha action and a killer soundtrack. Throw in the fact that it's from BONES? Game, set, match. Fun bonus fact: Eureka Seven is an anagram of Keanu Reeves.
4. Sakamichi no Apollon
With Cowboy Bebop director Shinichiro Watanabe and composer Yoko Kanno behind it, Sakamichi no Apollon might be the most hotly anticipated show this spring before people have even heard the premise. Fortunately, the 1960s coming-of-age story about high schoolers-turned-jazz musicians promises to hit all the right notes.

5. Fate/zero Part 2
Do we honestly even need to list Fate/zero Part 2? Haven't you already started fansubbing it yourself, just in case?
