[Preview] October 2009 Anime Season Preview

It's a little late, but it's better than never. Here is the preview of October 2009 new anime season. Maybe it's the global economic downturn, this October season is significantly smaller than usual. On top of that, I'm not seeing many exciting new animes either. Oh, well, we'll see how it is when they're out.

Asura Cryin' 2

Continuation of the first series.

Forecast: If you have seen the first series, you would want to see this since the first one didn't really end at all.

Darkder than Black Ryusei no Gemini

Oh the long awaited Darker Than Black sequel.

Forecast: It's Darker Than Black, what do you think?

Fairy Tail

Story about a kid who is part of the greatest mage guild, Fairy Tail.

Forecast: Standard fantasy story, could be interesting...

Kaidan Restaurant

A kid's anime about a "thriller restaurant".

Forecast: Kid's anime...

Kimi ni Todoke

Story of a shy and unpopular girl and a popular guy. Typical shoujo story.

Forecast: Shoujo anime is always unpredictable...


A girl who goes around gather people's suffering into a bottle.

Forecast: Sounds somewhat like Natsume Yuujinchou, could be very moving...

Kotatsu Neko

A story about two cats and their owner. Couldn't find much info on the Internet.

Forecast: Not enough intell, can't tell...

Kuchu Buranko

Story about a psychiatrist, whose behavior is quite strange.

Forecast: It looks...trippy

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu: Purezza

The second season of Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu. Although I wasn't too impressed with the firest season, it's still an above average anime.

Forecast: Probably just another above average anime...

Queen's Blade: Gyokuza no Tsugumono

Did you ever think that there could be no broadcast anime that is worse than Queen's Blade in terms of lewd content? Well, you're wrong. Just go to the new Queen's Blade's website and take a look at the preview of the new series. You will be amused.

Forecast: Ahhhhhhhh......


Another high school yuri story. Is it just me or the art style looks extremely like Aoi Hana?

Forecast: I'd give it an episode or two...

Seiken no Blacksmith

Fantasy story about someone trying to find a blacksmith to fix his legendary sword.

Forecast: Might be good...

Seitokai no Ichizon

I've read a little bit the manga it's based on. It's about a student council in high school. The art style in the anime makes the character look more childish than the manga.

Forecast: Looks cute, we'll see...

Shin Koihime Musou

Another Koihime Musou anime, let's see how bad this one gets...

Forecast: Very interested to see how much more destruction they can do to The Romance of Three Kingdoms.

Sora no Otoshimono

Some guy been dreaming a girl asking for help. One day, some strange anime fell out of the sky and his life is forever changed.

Forecast: Totally not sure...

Tatakau Shisho - The Book of Bantorra

All I can find is that it's a story about wars fought over library.

Forecast: Unknown...


Story about a government delivery boy?!

Forecast: Mediocre at best, the art work looks somewhat strange...

Toaru Kagaku no Railgun

Spin-off of To Aru Majutsu no Index, which focuses on the story of the railgun girl.

Forecast: Could be good, but I wouldn't count on it consider how disappointed I was with Index...

I hope Darker than Black will be as good as the first season, that got my vote. The other animes do seem a litlle less good by what i'm used to see.

Very excited about Darker than Black 2. I am also interested to see how the Toaru Kagaku no Railgun will turn out, because I was a fan of the first series.

I am familiar with the Tegami Bachi (Letter Bee) story because I've read the manga. I think the story could have promise.

I have mixed feelings about Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu: Purezza. On one hand the first series had an interesting story that I want to see more of. On the other hand, the animation of the first series really bugged me.

After watching Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu I started to notice two things with anime: one, in a fixed budget there is an inverse relation between picture quality and animation quality ie the more something moves around the less detail it has.
The other thing that I noticed is that no one ever blinks in an anime. This first bothered me in this anime because it was really bad at spending over a minute in the same frame with the main characters virtually motionless except for their mouths.
Which leads back to point one, where this anime is putting so much detail in the pictures that they animate so little to the point where it is noticeable.

Darker than Black 2 is still produced by studio BONES, and they've always been producing good animes. I expect the high standard just as the previous one.

Index was actually disappointed my quite a bit. Though I still wish good things out of Railgun, I'm not expecting much.

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu was mediocre to begein with, so this new one is probably mediocre at best.
