Spring 2009 Anime

Post by chaosprophet » Tue Mar 31, 2009 5:12 am

So with the next anime season at our doors will you follow any of it's anime? Do you have any one you specially hoping for? How do you choose which ones you going to follow?

I like to choose what animes to watch at a new season by looking at all of them. The would watch the ones I found to be interesting and/or it's art pleases me. In a way I kinda afraid to miss a good series (and yeah I know I could just watch it later :P). That worked well last season as I was suprised (in a good way) with RideBack, Tower of Druaga, Viper's Creed and White Album (these were ones I wasn't expecting much). This season I wanted to watch less series (to much to study >_> ) but there were too many interesting series... oh well...

The following ones are the ones I will watch. I may drop some of them but not before at least 3 episodes of each. (I got the start dates from MAL database)

+Basquash! (April 02)
+K-ON! (April 02)
+Queen’s Blade Rurou no Senshi (April 02)
+Pandora Hearts (April 02)
+Phantom Requiem for the Phantom (April 02)
+Hayate no Gotoku 2 (April 03)
+Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica Crimson S (April 04) (Need to watch previous season first)
+Senjou no Valkyria - Valkyria Chronicles (April 04)
+Tayutama -Kiss on my Deity- (April 05)
+Saki (April 05)
+Dragonball Kai (April 05)
+Shangri-La (April 05)
+Fullmetal Alchemist (April 05)
+Tears to Tiara (April 05)
+07-Ghost (April 06)
+Asura Cryin’ (April 06)
+Ristorante Paradiso (April 08)
+Eden of the East (April 09)
+Hatsukoi Gentei (April 11)
+Fight Ippatsu! Juuden-chan (May)

The ones I'm hoping for the most are Hayate no Gotoku 2 (need my Nagi, Hayate, Hina and Maria fix), Tears to Tiara (playing the VN and it's quite good) and K-ON! (KyoAni ftw). I'm quite interested in FMA and DG Kai too(they will be much easier to watch one episode a week). Let's see how those two will go.

Next are ones in which I was interested enough that I may watch them if I have enought free time (that's not probable though).

+Sengoku BASARA (April 01)
+Slap Up Party -Arad Senki- (April 03)
+Hanasakeru Seishounen (April 05)
+Cross Game (April 05)
+Natsu no Arashi (April 05)
+Robo Crosser (???)
+Bakugan Battle Brawlers New Vestroia (???)
+Rainbow Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin (???)

And in the end the OVAs I plan to watch:

+To-LOVE-Ru OVA (April 03)
+Yurumates (April 24)
+Spice and Wolf II OVA (April 30)
+Denpateki na Kanojo (May 01)
+Dogs: Bullets & Carnage (May 19)
+Kiss x Sis (May 22)

Edit:

Here is an IMAGE with all the animes that will air in the next season.

The following ones are the ones I will watch. I may drop some of them but not before at least 3 episodes of each. (I got the start dates from MAL database)


+K-ON! (April 02) - KyoAni and schoolgirls
+Pandora Hearts (April 02) - I can't pass up another "Alice in Wonderland" inspired series
+Hayate no Gotoku 2 (April 03) - One of my favourite comedy/parody series
+Senjou no Valkyria - Valkyria Chronicles (April 04) - Promo vid looks great; appealing lead female. Based off a hit game
+Saki (April 05) - Moe mahjong w/ a pretty good cast. Hopefully it avoids getting severely GONZO'd
+Natsu no Arashi (April 05) - Obligatory SHAFT fanboying
As usual, it's more of an "on the fly" thing for me, as I will inevitably pick up at least another half dozen depending on staff, friend recs, and various other tangible factors.

Right now only K-ON and FMA remake appeal to me. I haven't finished HnG S1 yet, but I have watched all the "key episodes." School + ISML takes away so much of my time that I was only able to follow Clannad AS, Toradora, Index, and Akane-iro last season. Four will probably be my limit this season as well, so I have to chose carefully.

As usual before the start of a new season I make a 'battle plan' of the shows that seem most interesting to me. Sometimes I pick up other shows on the fly depending on the buzz and I drop shows from this list because they are either: a) extremely badly animated or b) the story sucks monkey balls.

The ones I'm looking forward to the most are K-ON!, Pandora Hearts, Queen's Blade, Hayate no Gotoku!!, Shangri-La, Full Metal Alchemist 2, Natsu no Arashi! and Dragon Ball Kai. The others I'll check at least 2 or 3 episode from to see if I like it or not :P

Apr 2, 2009

-K-ON!
-Pandora Hearts
-Queen's Blade
-Asura Cryin'
-Phantom Requiem for the Phantom

Apr 3, 2009

-Hayate no Gotoku 2

Apr 5, 2009

-Full Metal Alchemist 2
-Shangri-la
-Guin Saga
-Saki
-Tears to Tiara
-Natsu no Arashi
-Dragon Ball Kai

Ones I plan to watch:
- Eden of the East
- Natsu no Arashi
- K-On
- Hayate no Gotoku 2
- FMA 2

The rest I will be waiting like Seishi for the reactions/reviews first. I'll probably ending up starting around 10~12 series in this Season of New Beginnings, due to most of everything ending.

Unn seems like many are waiting for reviews... maybe we can use this thread for it? If they want people could post their reactions/opinions/revies of the shows they're watching. For a better organization and easier acess for everyone I could put them on the first post and divide by series...

Unless there is a ninja Haruhi s2 announcement, nothing. I very rarely watch ongoing series.

Pretty undecided as to what I will watch atm.

Yes, it would be the "preliminary grades" thread or whatever you see on forums like AnimeSuki where people post their thoughts on the shows they are watching for the current season. I'm looking forward to the feedback provided on more than a few shows.

On further inspection...I might try the 2nd series of Polyphonica, even though I found the first just decent at best.

First the series that I'm going to start watching for sure, whether I complete them is another matter:

Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica Crimson S - This is the series I'm most looking forward to. I really enjoyed the first series despite it's flaws, and I'm hoping this will be an improvement.

Phantom Requiem for the Phantom - It's based on a Nitroplus work, that's enough for me to try it.

I'll most likely (but not definitely) also watch some of the following as well:

Senjou no Valkyria
Tayutama -Kiss on my Deity-
Tears to Tiara
Saki
To Love Ru OVA
Spice and Wolf II OVA

Then depending on my mood I'll end up watching some of the other new series.

After looking at trailers and promotional images, my list of things to check out is 15 titles long. Not couting OVAs and Hayate 2, since I still need to finish the 1st season.

Genuinely interested in:
Fullmetal Alchemist 2 (hoping this one if better than the first)
Guin Saga (it's going to be either epic, or epic fail)
Higashi no Eden (the trailer made me lol)
K-ON! (KyoAni)
Pandora Hearts (even if the plot turns out to be crap, I approve of the soundtrack)
Saki (epic mahjong!)

Could be interesting too:
07-Ghost
Asura Cryin'
Hanasakeru Seishounen
Hatsukoi Limited
Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~
Shangri-La
Tears to Tiara
Valkyria Chronicles

I heard it's going to be so bad, I kinda want to check it out for myself:
Natsu no Arashi!
