What am I watching for the summer season? June 27, 2006

Posted by Lupus in Anime, Ramblings.

Everyone’s doing their summer season line-ups, so there’s really no reason for me to post links and pics to every single summer season show. This post is to summarise what shows I’m likely to watch, and in what order of anticipation.

The only Hachikuro fanart I can find on danbooru and it’s loli-Ayu. At least Hagu only LOOKS loli.

1. Honey & Clover II

Honey and Clover

2. ハチミツとクローバーII

Is so awesome that no words

3. Hachikuro II

Can do it justice.

4. Hachimitsu to Clover II

No words.

5. NHK ni Youkoso!

The manga started a little depressing but very funny. Now, in its fourth volume, I find it far more depressing than funny, as both Satou’s and Misaki’s problems really come to the fore. I’ll be watching this anyway because it is Welcome to the NHK!, but I don’t know if I’ll have the power to persevere through an entire season of it.

6. Coyote Ragtime Show

With a name like that and such strong production value, this is looking like it could be in the vain of similarly named Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo. If it ends up like those shows than it will definitely be worth watching.

7. Tsuyokiss

I’ve been brainwashed by Ayyo. [zombie]cool x sweeeeet.[/zombie]

8. Tonagura

I hate harem show, but at least this one looks like it’ll be pretty, and possibly even funny. Hopefully on top of the prettiness it’ll have some substance to back it up.

9. Otogi Jushi Akazukin Bundan

I saw sketches for this in a magazine a few weeks ago, and I fell in the love with the cute but detailed character designs. I downloaded the first episode of the OVA but I still have to watch it. Again, hopefully there’s enough content to allow me to stay awake through the oh-so-pretty moving pictures.

This short list doesn’t mean I won’t watch the other shows, just that there is very little incentive for me to download them. If a show gets really good reps, I might give it a go. Hopefully there will be as many quality shows this season as there were last!

Ahh..this is kinda overwhelming since I didn’t even get a chance to blog last seasons anime. The line up for the summer season is pretty good…so I’m looking forward to it.

I’ll be watching:
-Binbou Shimai Monogatari
-Bokura ga Ita
-Night Head Genesis
-Le Chevalier D’Eon
-Muteki Kanban Musume
-Honey and Clover II

Ahh! Now I’m even more excited than usual…

Binbou Shimai looks pretty boring to me, and so does Bokuita. Night Head Genesis seems like it could be interesting, but when watching anime my brain switches off the function that analyses information. Le Chevalier D’Eon was going to make the list, but I don’t really know anything except it’s about a cross-dressing frenchie. And MKM… well, ramen battles? Sounds like a very lame idea to me.

3. Problematic - June 28, 2006

LOL Binbou and Bokura sounds like another shojo series to me…so I’ll give it a try. After reading a bunch of shojo mangas, I have this weird addiction to it now. Anything remotely shojo, I give it a chance. However, I totally agree, they sound kinda boring, and very familiar.

The only reason why I’m giving Le Chevalier D’Eon a chance is because it reminds me of Blood+. Basically the name lured me in… =P

RAMEN FTW! Yea I have really weird tastes in anime…I’ve only seen two cooking shows and loved them both.

We watch more or less the same shows. I loved the first four choices. I wished I did that with my own review. :|
