The Fall season of anime is fast approaching and as all long time anime fans will know, Fall is where the substance is. This year is no different, and after a quick scan through of That’s preview for Fall, I’ve chosen 7 titles to watch, which is more than a tripling of my 2 choices for Summer.
Those who aren’t into Western video games probably wouldn’t care, but with October also comes a whole slew of new and exciting computer game releases (including the likes of Fallout 3). Together with the encroaching exams, I am presented here with a very real dilemma. Which I would probably (and I stress the word probably) solve by watching and blogging about anime and buying the games later in December when the semestral exams are over.
October is going to own me over and over and over again.
Well without further ado, the things you’ll probably see gracing my blog this coming October:
So it seems that from now on, Otaku need to get their mecha-musume fix at least once every season. Kemeko Duluxe replaces Pantsu Witches to cater once again for those who have a penchant for robo-loli, without revealing the panties of the lolis this time round. Moar robo-loli is always good, at least until ADV manga wakes up their idea and publishes the 7th volume of Gunslinger Girl (manga).
Clannad ~After Story~
Clannad ~After Story~. `nuff said. This is a series that will be blogged by hundreds of anime bloggers simultaneously, guaranteed.
Shikabane Hime: Aka
I’ll admit, this one I took at face value. But it sure does look promising. Violent bishojo in school uniform exorcising spirits sounds very, very good. The official website looks really impressive as well.
To be honest, the first time I saw the original light novel was in Liang Court’s Kinokuniya when I was buying the Nogizaka Haruka light novels. Looks like the moe god has answered my prayers and given me an anime adaption. Amen.
Akane Iro ni Somaru Saka
Eroge adaptions always catch my eye very quickly, and I remembered first seeing this title in one of the issues of Dengeki G’s which I purchased a few months ago. Screenshots from the magazine have proven that this is likely to be a blast. Especially for moe-bishoujo lovers.
Kyou no Go no Ni
Manga originally drawn by Minami-ke’s mangaka. Please checkout my write-up of this series if you have not. Today in Class 5-2 is essentially a replication of your own childhood, with some ecchi mixed in that may be distrubing to some. The way I see it, its rather realistic in a sense, which we didn’t know really know much social rules when we were young anyway.
Adaption of a Delusional Science Visual Novel. True Remembrance anyone?
I’ve heard about this game for ages and ages over at Visual Novels, and am extremely pleased that it has received a quick anime adaption. Even though I feel that horror ultimately doesn’t mix with Bishoujos well, I’ll have to give this a go to make up my mind.
This Bishoujo outing looks set to contain as much depth as any of Key’s works, and is a must watch even for non-Bishoujo game fans. Please read the Wikipedia Article for detailed information on the visual novel.
