Fall 2009 – Version 2 (zomg)
Super early, as expected /feckless sarcasm
It’s done, finally, and basically sums up most of what you’ll be watching (or not, if you’re dull) for the next three months. Complete with OVAs and Continuations, per usual. Considering I have most of the airdates already, I have decided to order it properly now rather than later. Weekdays will come in V3. I’ve toned down the brightness of some of the reds to be kind of the eyes (I don’t have a bad pun this time), but as usual expect more artifacts than a museum (oh wait, yes I do) when it comes to jpeg compression.
Aoi Bungaku, or “Blue Literature”, seems a notable edition to the line-up, being an Ayakashi Tales-type setup with classic japanese literature, and as an extra bonus, some good character designers from the world of Shounen manga. Let’s just hope Tite Kubo isn’t drawing the backgrounds. Add that to R3K and you can pretend be all sophisticated and clever with your famous oriental books in animated form.
Miracle Train has to be seen to be believed. War Heroes, Soft Drinks, Countries and now this. Imagine something mundane or ordinary you can turn into anthropomorphic sexual symbols and make an anime out of it quick, whilst the trend still lasts!
That guy from Macross Frontier and Basquash has a new bizarre anime, Anyamaru, which can only be described in one word as “Japanese”. Something about bug-eyed girls turning into animals – and then with three separate studios. Take a shot every time somebody sings.
Also present is a second season of Sunred, some bizarre compilation show involving Shugo Chara, The Three Musketeers (there are clearly four people there, what’s going on?!) some kiddy show about scary hotels, some kiddy show about a rabbit-monkey hyrbid, some kiddy show about a Russian Crocodile, some Kiddy show about a Girl-and..
There’s also flash series called Secret Society Eagle Talon and another young’un show, Gokyoudai Monogatari, which I genuinely considered could be an anime adaptation of Little Britain.
And that seems to be all the new anime. Maybe not so exciting as last year’s surprise last entries, but at least Blue Literature could be very interesting.
And that’s it until the end of the month. Enjoy! (png download below)
