Ahh, here comes that awkward time of the year where I have to use both 09 and 10 to prevent confusing people as to which year we’re on – however, as the majority of shows actually begin in 2010, I shall refer to it as ‘Winter 10′ – which just sounds like an anime in of itself.
Currently….15 shows. It can’t just be me who thinks that’s an extremely small batch of shows for one season? Maybe there will be more eventually. But it doesn’t seem to be bad.
Durarara!! should be promising, being from the author, staff and studio of Baccano!! and having an irish headless horsewoman on a motorbike. SoRaNoWoTo is part of TV Tokyo’s intriguing new “Power of Anime” timeslot, which will be for anime-original series. It has owls. Katanagatari exhibits an interesting art style, and is from the author of Bakemonogatari, which should garner interest. Hanamaru Kindergarten is Gainax’s new troll show about extremely young kids, so …eh, make of that what you will. Baka to Test and Qwaser further pushes back the boundaries of taste (davidmitchelllol) with using furry avatars to cheat in school and magical judeo-christian GRIMDARK characters who drink breast milk. yeah. Okamikakushi seems to be a cousin of Higurashi, being from Ryukisihi07 himself and presenting a similar scenario – it follows a new trend of SCYTHES EVERYWHERE. The rest follows ordinary high school students who do things and things happen, in some cases becoming butlers or starting clubs devoted entirely to underwear, often in sequels. And there’s Kewpie, whatever that is.
Oh, and i’ve decided to go all abstract and creative with my formats. Love it or leave it.
