[Preview] Winter (January) 2010 New Anime Season Preview

As the currently anime season slowly wrapping up, the new anime season is about to kick off. For this new anime season, I got hold of the niconico preview again, so there're more visual than just a picture and a link. This time, instead of re-sorting the animes in alphabetical order, I went ahead wrote my preview using the video's order. It's easier for everybody that way :)



The January preview video actually ends at 4:58, the rest are previews for new animes beyond Winter 2010 season.


Cobra The Animation: Rokunin no Yushi
Cobra The Animation: 六人の勇士
http://www.cobra30th-anime.com/
(video time 0:42)

Cobra is a space pirate. It's a remake of an almost 30 years old anime.

Forecast: Looks a bit too...retro


Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 3: Owari Naki Unmei
遙かなる時空の中で3 終わりなき運命
http://www.gamecity.ne.jp/media/mix/haruka/destiny/
(video time 0:57)

The third installment of the series of stories that based on romantic reverse harem game.

Forecast: I've seen the first series, never really got into the second one. Fan girls probably would like this since there are many pretty boys. I'll it 50/50.


Chu-Bra!!

ちゅーぶら!!
http://www.starchild.co.jp/special/chuubra/
(video time 1:13)

A middle school girl who's obsessed with underwear (??!!!) is trying to start a underwear club (???!!!) in her school.

Forecast: That... sounds retarded. Maybe just another simple ecchi comedy anime.


So・Ra・No・Wo・To
ソ・ラ・ノ・ヲ・ト
http://www.sorawoto.com/
(video time 1:27)

Did not find any info for this anime at all.

Forecast: Not enough info, no clue...


Seikon no Qwaser
聖痕のクェイサー
http://www.qwaser.jp/
(video time 1:42)

Story occurs in a eastern orthodox school in Japan where people with magical powers are in war (?!)

Forecast: Wikipedia says it's similar in concept with Sailor Moon, but with much more violence, brutality, and perversion. It sounds like an interesting mix. We'll just have to see how they implement it.


Masuda Kōsuke Gekijō Gag Manga Biyori+
増田こうすけ劇場 ギャグマンガ日和+
http://www.kids-station.com/minisite/gag/
(video time 1:57)

Series of random nonsensical comedies.

Forecast: Apparently it's a series has been going for a while. I have no clue what it is, but nonsensical comedies always have potentials.


Ladies versus Butlers!
れでぃ×ばと!
http://www.ladies-vs-butlers.com/
(video time 2:12)

Couldn't find any info about this...

Forecast: Not enough info...

(video time 2:27)

A high school boy who is protected by a sword wielding cat girl to protect him from daemons. But there's a problem, he's allergic to cat.

Forecast: Nyan Koi copy cat?


Baka to Test to Shōkanjū
バカとテストと召喚獣
http://www.bakatest.com/
(video time 2:42)

Story about a school where good grade earns you spot in classes that has good facilities.

Forecast: Weird concept, but it sounds quite interesting.


Dance in the Vampire Bund

ダンスインザヴァンパイアバンド
http://www.vampirebund.com/
(video time 2:57)

The princess who rules all vampires paid off Japan to create a special district as vampire haven.

Forecast: Very interesting concept. I think this might be a keeper.


Durarara!
デュラララ!!
http://www.durarara.com/
(video time 3:12)

From the creator of Baccano!, comes another crazy story.

Forecast: This is definitely a keeper.


Hidamari Sketch X Hoshimittsu
ひだまりスケッチ×☆☆☆(ほしみっつ)
http://www.tbs.co.jp/anime/hidamari/
(video time 3:27)

More story about art story student.

Forecast: The first two season wasn't a keeper for me, this wouldn't be either.


Okami Kakushi

おおかみかくし
http://www.tbs.co.jp/anime/okami/
(Video time 3:42)

From the creator of Higurashi, 07th-Expansion, comes another horror mystery thriller.

Forecast: If there weren't Umineko, I'd say this is a keeper. But Umineko is such a disappointment, I'll just have to see.


Kaitou Reinya
怪盗レーニャ
http://www.reinya.jp/
(Video time 3:57)

Another nonsensical comedy.

Forecast: It seems there are too much nonsensical comedies for this season...

(Video time 4:13)

Kindergarten comedies.

The final chapter of Nodame Cantabile.

Forecast: If I have to pick one anime to watch, this would be it.


Katanagatari
刀語
http://www.katanagatari.com/
(Video time 4:42)

Not sure what it is about, but it's from the author of Bakemonogatari.

Forecast: The art looks...funky. Actually, it resembles some similarities from Bakemonogatari. It could be another good one.

oh oh, i'm soooo looking foward to デュラララ!! i've been trying to get hands on that novel for ages but i always fails to, so when i heard that it's gonna be made into an anime i was like....happy to death...er, maybe not that serious

then is ダンスインザヴァンパイアバンド i used to like bloody/action/violent/sad vampire animes with 'standard' art...like...Blood+

then is 聖痕のクェイサー since the art looks pretty <art is very important to me

the last anime in my to watch list is おおかみかくし since i sorta like mystery

then i'll see wether i'll watch the rest depending on others' rating and comments
