[Preview] Summer (July) 2010 New Anime Season Preview

Finally got time around to track down what's new in July 2010 new anime season. Since it's a small season, the list is relatively short as well. I've searched far and wide, only managed to come up with 15 new TV series that starts to air in July 2010. But, quality over quantity, though the list is short, there are some really good looking animes that I think has the potential to become the anime of the year.

Amagami SS

A boy meets girls during Christmas, lots of them.

Forecast: Sounds like a typical soft harem anime, but sometimes could be very moving

Asobi ni Iku yo!

A guy meets cat-eared alien, everybody else is trying to catch her, except him trying to protect her.

Forecast: I think this concept is getting a little old. I'd give it 50/50, only because it looks cute.

Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu


A fantasy setting, where some guy is caught up in the war.

Forecast: I think I've heard similar stories before.

Gakuen Mokushiroku Highschool of the Dead

Zombies in high school!

Forecast: Japanese high school and zombies? This could be very interesting.

Kuroshitsuji II
黒執事 II

New master and new devil butler.

Forecast: If it's as good as the original series, then this will be a keeper.


Premature elemental school students.

Forecast: No thank you. I think I'll probably pass on this one.

Nurarihyon no Mago

A kid who's 3/4 human and 1/4 youkai is destined to become the leader of youkai, except he has no interest in becoming one.

Forecast: Also seems to be an overused concept, not so sure about it.

Okami-san to Shichinin no Nakama Tachi

A story about a high school "fixer" club that fixes high school's problems.(?!)

Forecast: While not sure what it's about, it sounds somewhat interesting.

Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin

The daughter of former headmaster of private academy dedicated to the study of occult who died in 1999 (?!)

Forecast: It's horror genre, so, it might be worth just to see.

Seitokai Yakuindomo

Story of the only boy in the high school student council.

Forecast: Haven't I heard of this concept somewhere before? Yeah, Seitokai no Ichizon...

Sekirei Pure Engagement
セキレイ~Pure Engagement~

The second installment of Sekirei series.

Forecast: Well, the first one weren't that great, but I'm sure there'll be a lot of bouncing boobs in this one, too.

Sengoku Basara 2

The second installment of Sengoku Basara.

Forecast: The first one is brilliantly fun to watch. I expect the same for this one, too.


Strange death start to occur in a small and quiet village. The hospital staff soon finds out what the cause for these deaths.

Forecast: This is based on original story written by the author of 12 Kingdoms and Ghosthunt. That is enough to convince me to follow through.

Shukufuku no Campanella

Upon finding a mysterious girl in a chapel, a group of people set out to a mysterious adventure.

Forecast: Can't really tell...

Strike Witches 2
ストライクウィッチーズ 2

Second season of Strike Witch.

Forecast: The first season lasted me only one episode, I'm not going to bother with this one either.

Read the manga to some of them already.

Highschool of the dead is awesome. Sort of like dawn of the dead with highschool students in anime. Can't wait. Also excited about Kuroshitsuji Season II.

Shiki looks interesting. Nurarihyon no Mago is a decent enough manga but will go on forever.
