Next season summary (795 KB)

It’s June already~ and I barely review things with jobs on the line and so on. Anyway looks like the series that I confirmed to follow gonna be Spice and Wolf II, I already read the novel though, and I can assure (if they they don’t change the story) it’s gonna be interesting. For this series I gonna review further (hopefully) this weekend.

Other series that might interesting to watch especially for type-moon (Fate S/N, Tsukihime, Kara no Kyoukai) fans probably CANAAN which adapted from the visual novel 428 of course by type-moon. here’s a quick quote from ANN:

The official Japanese website for the anime adaptation of Sega and Chunsoft’s 428 ~Fuusa Sareta Shibuya de~ visual novel has launched with the announcement of the anime’s official title: CANAAN. The visual novel for the Nintendo Wii tells a present-day story about a detective, a young man, a virus researcher, a freelance writer, and a cat mascot character who are brought together by bizarre events with worldwide implications in the Tokyo neighborhood of Shibuya. Sword of the Stranger director Masahiro Ando (not to be confused with the similarly named Sailor Moon animation director Masahiro Ando) is overseeing the animators at P.A. Works (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society, Darker than BLACK).

And, well ecchi anime lovers probably gonna wait for Princess Lover! which totally looks like another Harem anime which is adapted from *cough*eroge*cough*. For other interesting series that I gonna peek is probably Bakemonogatari.

Nogizaka Haruka DVD
Hmm~ for fan who didn’t get enough just by 13 episodes, looks like their pray has been answered. Although they must be patient…

Here’s a quote from ANN

Second Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu TV Anime Green-Lit

posted on 2009-02-05 04:18 EST A “Dengeki no Kanzume” pamphlet enclosed in Isuna Hasekura and Jū Ayakura’s Spice and Wolf X light novel has announced that production on a second season of the Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu television anime has been green-lit. Like the first series that ran in 2008, the new project adapts Yūsaku Igarashi’s otaku romance comedy light novel about a boy who discovers that his high school’s most unattainable girl is a secret otaku. Mamiko Noto and Wataru Hatano lead the cast by reprising their roles as the girl, Haruka Nogizaka, and the boy, Yūto Ayase, respectively. Similarly, Munenori Nawa (D.C.S.S. ~Da Capo Second Season~, Kiss×sis) will return to direct. Series script supervisor Tsuyoshi Tamai (Inukami!, Strike Witches) and character designer Satoshi Ishino (Excel Saga, Puni Puni Poemy) also return from the first season. The first season’s Studio Barcelona is producing the animation again under its new name, Diomedea. (The studio reformed and changed its name last November.) The same “Dengeki no Kanzume” pamphlet also confirmed the summer premiere of the Spice and Wolf II television series and the April premiere of the Asura Cryin’ television anime adaptation.

To Aru Majutsu no Index (A Certain Magical Index) – First Glance

To aru Majutsu no Index

“When Science crossed path with Magic, this Tale begin.”

When this series begin I not really put into much thought about this, but once I saw the first episode I was enticed to collect it. Since it came from the same production house, you can say it’s replacement for Shakugan no Shana. Well this series, just like Shana, also adapted from novel of the same name. Although this has the same vibe, but the story is completely different of course and this one is more Sci-fi too (which really make me more interested). Although after watching more than twenty episode, the arcs felt like separated story altogether but somehow (I feel) it would get connected later on.

Merry Christmas 2008 & New Anime Season 2009

Xmas Greetings

Yes, it’s Christmas again and winter season of Anime. Other than series that still continued (such as Gundam 00 Season 2 or To Aru Majutsu no Index) there are new series that gonna be broadcasted in early 2009. Although I really doubt I will collect most of ’em, some title that already caught in early broadcast just like Akikan already caught my attention. Other action series that potentially good is Kurokami and the series also will broadcasted in three countries at the same time (US, Japan, Korea), I think this is an effort againts piracy (and well… fansub) but most hardcore otaku still prefer subtitle unless the dub quality is really good (which is quite rare).

but what U gonna watch is for U to decide~

And now… *sigh* should I post this half-ass Kannagi review… nah, maybe later after some touch up.
