Autumn/Winter Animes!!!

Lucky Star, Nanatsuiro Drops, Zero no Tsukaima 2nd season and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei(not sayonara just yet, 2nd season to come very soon!) have all ended as I speak, and with more to follow the same path. With autumn/fall approaching and just around the corner, it's time for a new batch of animes just waiting to be aired!

These are animes that I would be watching. Any good animes coming out this October that's not in, please let me know!

1st up, Shakugan no Shana 2nd season.

She's back. Finally! Any fan of the 1st season should know that this is on top of their must-watch list. And I've finally got hold of the DVD version of the Shakugan no Shana movie. This should keep me busy until then. Starting 5 Oct 2007, Friday 1:25am.

Next, Clannad by Kyoto Animation.

Somehow, the characters are eerily similar to those in Kanon. But as a Kyoto Animation project, highly anticipated. The girl in middle = Tsukimiya Ayu??? You be the judge. Starting 5 Oct 2007, Friday 1:55am.

D.C. II ~Da Capo II~

Not much known of the storyline, but it follows the eroge of the same title. Expect harem and romance from this, like the previous Da Capo. Airing 2 Oct 2007, Tuesday 12:00am.

ef - a tale of memories.

Based on the visual interactive novel by Minori, featuring character designs by Nanao Naru.

The story revolves around the protagonist Hirono Hiro, a poor high school boy who draws shoujo manga for his living. One cold Christmas night after meeting a very strange woman in a church, who tells him that he's going to meet someone he has to meet, his bike gets stolen by another strange girl. He runs after her and finds her collapsed on the street. Her name is Miyamura Miyako and her bag got stolen by a man on a motorbike. Soon after, they start hanging out together, enjoying high school life. Miyako falls for Hiro pretty quickly but naturally finds a rival in his childhood friend, Shindou Kei, who has been dictating Hiro's life since ever.

Quite an interesting title. Haven't got hold of the "visual novel"(eroge in disguise), but I've heard that the story's pretty solid. Starting 7 Oct 2007, Sunday 1:35am.

Kodomo no Jikan

Based on the seinen manga by Watashiya Kaworu, serialised in Comic High!. NOT related to the other Kodomo no Jikan by Goto Akira!

It's the cute ones you've gotta watch out for...

23-year old school teacher Aoki Daisuke has a huge problem. One of his precocious 3rd Grade students, Kokonoe Rin, has the hots for him?! Yes, mischievous Rin has proclaimed herself to be Daisuke-sensei's girlfriend and is now on a warpath to win him over or cause him to lose his job...whichever comes first!
Besides Rin, Daisuke's got other problems to take care of -- one of the students in his class, Mimi (one of Rin`s friends), hasn't been attending school recently.

Kodomo no Jikan is produced by Studio Barcelona, which is behind the recently ended Nanatsuiro Drops. Loved the art done by them, so this is naturally in my watch list. NO I AM NOT A LOLICON. Starting 11 Oct 2007, Thursday 2:00am.

KimiKiss Pure Rouge

Wierd title, but nice art. Not surprising as this anime will be produced by J.C.Staff, who are behind the Shakugan no Shana series. Not much known about the story though, but I suspect romance. My favourite. Starting 7 Oct 2007, Sunday 2:55am.

Dragonaut : The Resonance

Another wierd titled anime. Looks nice though, and not surprising as well. This anime is produced by Gonzo, who has a pedigree of producing great animes such as the recent Seto no Hanayome, Vandread and the Full Metal Panic series. Starting 4 Oct 2007, Thursday 1:50am.

That's all for now. Will be watching out for potential animes along the way. Oh and by the way, stay away from the soon-to-be-aired animated version of Maplestory, you fans of the game. It looks REALLY UGLY. JUST LIKE IN GAME!!! UGHH.
