New Spring 2008 Anime I will be watching

Last year was a good year for anime. I enjoyed anime like Seirei no Moribito and Claymore that premiered last spring, Naruto returned with Shippuuden and Gundam 00‘s first season got better with each episode. It’s spring again and as usual brand new anime are premiering and a few are enjoying a continuation of their stories. After looking at write ups, previews, trailers and checking out at least one episode of most of the series that have started so far these are the three series I am most looking forward to:

The Tower of Druaga: Aegis of Uruk

It has demons, references to gods, great animation, art style, costume design and a somewhat interesting story (at least on paper). I’ve checked out only one episode so far and althought not overly impressed I’ll be sticking around for a few more.


This series was recommended by a friend from Japan and I am mostly watching it for “educational purposes”as it is set at the end of the Edo period of Japanese history when Japan was some would say forcefully opened up to the world after a long time of isolation. The characters are interesting, the story is ok and overall I have been entertained by the 3 episodes I’ve watched. I kinda have a thing for historically based anime even if it’s fantasy and I am expecting a lot from this series.

Soul Eater

Soul eater is my favourite series so far. It’s hilarious, I love the art style, animation and music and it’s the most interesting series so far. The sory is based around 3 weapon masters who have weapons who can transform into humanoid form and then back to weapon form at will (or when instructed).
