Version 3, Final Version. Enjoy.
Cobra follows Winter Sonata in being the Duke Nukem Forever of anime, and Ichizon also goes back by a season. A few less and more OVAs to boot.
Now with weekdays. I decided to go with animesuki dating method (I’m still confused by Japanese time), so that everything seems later than it might officially be – considering you have to wait for RAWs and Subs alike, it’s closer to how we might watch said shows anyway, so blegh.
Fall shows are also starting to be announced, so i’ll have that line-up in a month.

You’ll need the image-editing program “Fireworks” to make any changes to it. You can also download it as a general High Quality image.

Here be Version 2 , just before the sugoi~ (stop that) Summer season officially begins, though it truly gets going in July. Cue applause..or something.
This version has OVAs and TV Specials, Continuing OVAs and TV specials, four new shows, a few more pretty pictures, dates and months for OVAs and TV series respectively, and more ORANGE, because you can never have enough. Basically i’m experimenting with colourschemes and such, to liven up the image and not stap people’s eyes out with primary colours – and of course to appease the Designfag inside. There are also a few added boxes, lines and font placements, all for the good cause of pretentiousness.
(This uncouth image has decided to rebel and poke out the sides a bit, I don’t understand MACHINE CODE so I guess it’s stuck there)
Enjoy! And by that I mean stop bitching, herpderp. (In case you can’t SEE this image, try clicking on it. I still refuse to believe people can’t read this in full and weren’t just squinting at the blurry thumbnail)
soon… Now –
– with a hazardous colour scheme stolen directly from Newgrounds. At least there aren’t any bee or wasp related anime or I could be accused of favouritism. There are, however, Wolves, Cobras, blue things from uncanny alley and Seafaring felines.
Yet again, I hasten you to TAKE NOTE OF WHAT I AM ABOUT TO SAY:- Neither the images, nor the summaries, can paint an accurate picture of the anime it describes. It will be close, but before you judge an anime, wait for it and watch it – or do the proper thing and make use of sites such as ANN to check out the stafflisting and see what things they worked on. From this, you can work out that shows like CANAAN have experienced people working on it and will perhaps be very professionally done, whereas shows like Sora no Manimani probably will not be. /rant
Most Spring shows pass the baton in July. And really, Spring 2009 has been very good, with a large variety of decent shows displaying lots of different themes and quality, and a handful of anime rising even above that. It certainly leaves a better impression than 2008.
As a result, it seems the backlash of inevitable harem and moe flicks distills into Summer season – though there are certainly a good bunch of enjoyable and intriguing anime shows on offer, which gives more prospects than last year (which incidently, is when I started this charting lark). You have innovative concepts in the form of Tokyo Magnitude and Element Hunters, loveable sequels from Brains Base and Shaft, some nice slice-of-life manga adaptations such as Aoi Hana, the mandatory Visual Novel anime of Canaan and Umineko, and even blasts from the past – Cobra.
Anyways, enjoy this season, and anticipate the next.
