Spring 2008 anime

[The previous post was an April fools joke! :)]

(originally posted here yesterday)

As I am lazy to list everything and the fact that complete information can be found online, I'm going to just list what I am going to watch. This post wont appear on the anime blog and it's japanese counterpart, though the links for those listed below can be found there. The finalized version would appear on the earlier mentioned blogs and my friendster profiles

Not likely to watch:
  • Allison & Lilia (it's war themed)
  • Macross Frontier (the characters looked ugly and uses too much use of gundams)
  • xxxHOLiC Kei (not my type)
  • To LOVE-Ru [pronounced as "trouble"] (too much fanservice, as displayed in all of it's trailers)
  • kure-nai (storyline don't seem interesting, character design not good)
  • The Tower of Druaga ~the Aegis of URUK~ (medieval themed)
  • Itazura na Kiss (don't know much about it, website don't seem appealing)
  • Blassreiter (zombies=horror/scarry genre, not my kind)
  • Zettai Karen Children (somewhat like a kiddy show, the visual quality somewhat reminds me of those from 10-20 years ago)
  • Neo Angelique Abyss (reason is the same as "Macross Frontier" and "Tower of Druaga" above, without the gundams)
  • SOUL EATER (reminds me of "Shaman King" and "Naruto". Not that they are bad, but compared to what I may/will be watching, I should skip this.)
  • Monochrome Factor (boring)
  • Kaiba (I give the character design a WTF rating)
  • Junjou Romantica (Yaoi and humor)
  • Golgo 13 (50 episodes long that is based on a manga that started in 1968 with volume 148 out this month. It's too long. "Hayate no gotoku" was 52 episodes long too, but somewhat lost steam by episode 10)
  • Nijuu Mensou no Musume (the character designs made all the women look like men in female clothing. The way the trailer is made is similar to "Crystal Blade" below; full of static images and text)
Some chance of watching:
  • Amatsuki (interesting storyline and good character design)
  • Kanokon (somewhat smillar to "To LOVE-Ru" above but not as extreme)
  • Da Capo II Second Season (the storyline of the 1st season was a letdown, despite everything else being nice)




Will surely watch anime and anime carried over:
  • Persona -trinity soul- (24 episode Winter/January 2008 anime)
  • CODE GEASS Hangyaku no Lelouch R2 (Liked the previous season, which ended as a cliffhanger. Somewhat as popular as "The Depression/Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya")
  • Special A (the setting somewhat reminds me of "Ouran Host Club")






  • Vampire Knight (A show that is based on a shoujo manga that is actually interesting to watch, not like "Kyoushirou to Towa no Sora" aired in Winter 2007 and "Itazura na Kiss" listed above)
