Summer is almost over and a new anime season is upon us packed with fresh new shows and quite a few sequels. From my interesting summer 2009 anime list I have been enjoying Needless and Tokyo Magnitude 8.0. From the long list of series starting in the next few weeks I have chosen 4 series that have caught my eye from the previews. Looking forward to watching these and reviewing them at a later date.
Armed Librarians – The story evolves around death, religion and a library filled with books protected by librarians wielding powerful psychic powers. Crazy? yes I know but to me a librarian is one of the most docile professions so it will be interesting to see how the ass kicking plays out in this action series.
Fairy Tail – My fantasy anime itch has not been scratched in a while. Guin Saga impressed initially but has grown more mundane with each episode. Fairy Tail however seems to be a highly rated manga and the anime adaptation is on it’s way filled with magic, dragons and adventure. Possible my most highly anticipated series in this upcoming season.
Romance of the Three Kingdoms – This anime is based off a Chinese historical novel. I think the anime was originally expected to be released in the spring but was rescheduled. The Asian history buff in me is looking forward to watching this series and a video game series called Dynasty Warriors that I used to play is also based off this historical text.
Kimi no Todoke – When I heard that this series is from the same people behind Eden of the East it jumped right on my list. The story takes place in a real life setting and is about a creepy looking girl who is scored by her peers. She has a huge crush on the popular guy in school who is one of the few people who is nice to her. Will there be tragedy or will there be a happy ending? ‘ll just have to watch it and see.
Which new series coming this fall are you looking forward to?
