Interesting Anime from Last Winter

I’ve been hearing and reading on various anime blogs that the Autumn 2009 anime season is one of the weakest in a while. It’s impossible for me to watch every or most of the new anime that premiere or continue each season but I am really enjoying Armed Librarians from my list for the  Fall 2009 season and I am wrapping up and drafting a few review posts from my Summer 2009 anime watchlist. The winter season is around the corner  and having made one of the worst mistakes in my blogging career and mistaking Winter 2008 – 2009 anime for Winter 2009 – 2010 ones I decided to just go ahead and post about these anime from a year ago anyway and catch up on the interesting ones.  I have Chosen 4 series I will follow and unless its not my kind of anime I should follow them out to the end and provide reviews.

Kemono no Souja Erin – The first thing that caught my eye when reading up on this anime is that it was written by the same writer that did Guardian of the Sacred Spirit, an anime that I thoroughly enjoyed, especially the music and battle sequences. I don’t expect Kemono no Souja Erin to have as much action and so I am really looking out for the story elements.


Viper’s Greed – A story involving armies, war, politics, environmental destruction and huge mechanized bikes (that reminds most people a little of Akira) is enough for me to expect my action and explosion fix from this series.


The Tale of Genji – A peek into Japanese history especially the happenings surrounding the life of Japanese aristocrats in the past is the premise in this anime and the story follows “Shining Genji” a prince kicked a few notches down the Japanese societal food-chain.


Asu no Yoichi! – I was caught slightly off guard when I added harem fueled Queen’s Blade to my Spring 2009 anime watchlist and was traumatized by female demons using their mammary glands as weapons. This time around though I am almost sure there are no demons but I expect a country boy who ends up in a dojo with 4 females to be enslaved and forced to sit on their eggs.

    Ah well, you had me right there. I love Guardian of the Spirit to death, so now I have to check this out. Thanks a lot for the recommendation. I love animes, but I simply don’t have the time to watch a lot of shows.

    1. very few people love story heavy fantasy anime like Guardian of the Spirit. I’ve watched the first 5 episodes of Kemono no Souja Erin since making this blog post and so far the story is epic!

  2. Awesome I’ve been looking for new anime to watch, and kinda get a jump start on an old project of mine..called Anime Synergy

    Please feel free to cross review your anime’s man.. I’ve been in the dark in regards to anime for some time now.
