Chasing After Rainbows: list of spring 2008 anime that I have been watching

list of spring 2008 anime that I have been watching

I rarely put up new blog entries less than 24 hours after the previous one on the same blog

With Summer 2008 anime approaching and have been paying attention to my anime watch list since early April this year, you would notice that those mentioned here (and here) are hardly mentioned under "likely to watch" are currently there and some of "not likely to watch" are actually listed.

For most of them, I would just watch 1 episode and see if it's good. But for some of them, I might watch more and sometime more than half-way through the series before dropping it. For anime that falls into the latter include:
  • Neo Angelique Abyss (just plain boring)
  • Kanokon (far too much intolerable sexual scenes than To LOVE-Ru; character design is decent, but the picture quality is like crap)
  • Kamen no Maid Guy (same as above; storyline doesn't seem to go anywhere; character design and picture quality looks like crap)
  • Wagaya no Oinarisama. (I actually fell asleep watching this)
  • Persona -trinity soul- [Winter 2008] (It looked like it had a lot of action, but there were hardly any; fell asleep watching the episodes prior to dropping it)
  • Special A (storyline doesn't seem to go anywhere; character design and picture quality looks like crap)
  • Vampire Knight (all of the episodes seems to be talking about the same thing with no major progress on the storyline)
[when I say that the picture quality "is like crap", I meant that it looked like it was for Standard Definition TV (640x480 with horizontal black bars), but the so-called HD version is actually an upscale of the SD version. So in the end, the picture is not as sharp. Use the SD and HD of CODE GEASS Hangyaku no Lelouch R2 or Lyrical Nanoha Magical StrikerS as a comparison.]

Anime that was listed as "unlikely to watch" and "some chance of watching" that I ended up watching are:
(those in italics were dropped later with reasons to why I dropped it listed above)

Episode 9 of "Code Geass: Leouch of the Rebellion R2" has been delayed for another week to 8 June due to the recent earthquake in Sichuan Province (四川省) and has been replaced by a "festival" hosted by someone in Akihabara (秋葉原). It doesn't seem interesting though.

It's not from any particular anime. Though the style is somewhat related.
