It’s already March and new season is already begin, it really felt so fast. Before telling what I thought about next season I’m gonna reminiscence a bit about the previous season.
You can also see the list on more. And all credit for the list goes to Lop-san from downloadanime forum. please join if you’re free~
Influenced by few blogs I also start collecting the Druaga series and well just like they said its really a hidden treasure. Although it was for good laugh and entertaining at the beginning but towards the end of the first season, it began quite epic. The second season the Tower of Druaga: the Sword of Uruk is still running but the HD release is quite slow so I gonna pending the second season for awhile.
While most of Major series is keep up the hype, like Gundam 00 or Index, I found ToraDora! is quite amusing too~ I haven’t read the novel thoroughly but the anime maintaining a good drama (and so far the manga is quite good too since the pace is different somehow it have it’s own charm, I guess) although some episode can be quite plain but it’s followed by epic drama in the next episode. For another drama there’s also White Album, although the pace is very slow but I just can’t stop collecting these. Maybe because it’s making you annoyed to whom the guy would pick (well it’s a Visual Novel adaptation anyway and I still can’t accept Yuki as main heroine XD Rina Banzai~ not only because her VA is Mizuki Nana).
And for the next season, Full Metal Alchemist seems to be on my highlight list for now. For other series that looks interesting is of course Hayate the Combat Butler Season 2. Next for my watchout list probably K-ON, since Kyo Ani is on it, I will look forward for this. Then there’s Shangrilla, Saki, and Tayutama~!. For Queen’s Blade I haven’t even get the previous series but is looks good (more like looks HOT, Sexy HOT XD Nothing like seeing girls fight with minimal garment isn’t~)
