I am very late onto the anime wagon for the new Summer 2011 series. At the time of this post I have yet to watch any episode of any of the new series and other than the X-Men anime I still have some catching up to do with some of the series I had been watching from my Spring 2011 anime list and even before that. Better late that never so I have been mulling over the plot synopsis’s and trailers for some of the new anime this summer and plucked a few that I think would be interesting.

Ikoku Meiro no Croisée

It’s the last 1800s and a Japanese girl named Yune travels to Paris with French traveler Oscar to help out in his his nephews ironwork shop. From what I understand it’s a story about two different cultures and people from different backgrounds learning to understand their differences and appreciate what they have in common. Worth a watch but my annoying female lead senses are tingling.

Blade

The coolest Superhero vampire is in town as another of Marvel’s IPs gets the anime treatment. I couldn’t bare watching a minute of Wolverine, I endured some of Iron Man but couldn’t see it through to it’s generic end and while I enjoyed some of X-Men it definitely wasn’t a good series so will Blade be any different? I sure as hell don’t know but I love the whole vampire bit my mom when she was pregnant so now I am mad angry and want revenge kind of story.

No.6

No.6 looks like a brain twisting story heavy series that will keep me interested. I have not seen an episode yet but I am already expecting great things from this show. It is based on a novel and the story stars Shion who was raised from an early age among the elite and on his 12 birthday most move to a new mysterious and futuristic city where the highest ranked individuals in a very segregated society reside. Hopefully I am not disappointed by this show.

Blood-C

Vampires, demons, a sword with hard to pronounce names, lots blood gushing action and a decent sized cast is what I notice from what I have read so far and/or also expect from Blood-C. I am not very familiar with the “Blood” series on anime but something tells me I’ll either love or hate this anime after the first couple episodes.
