Watching? HELL YEAHHH! >:3

Okay,, that’s one reaction. XD Anyhow, if there’s one show in the Summer 2009 anime that I’m totally looking for and is hoping that it won’t disappoint or else I will go nuts , it’s this one. Hey, it’s not that I’m hemophilic and love seeing bloody gore and murder (honestly, I’m hemophobic in RL) but I just love seeing those in anime. Plus, I LOVE the Higurashi series so I don’t find anything wrong with watching this huh? I guess I’m part of the hype over this show! XP Nyahahahaha~ So don’t call it overrated infront of my face OKAY!? Nahh, I’m just joking, I respect everyone’s opinion >w<

I’m really curious on how this show will turn out. As far as I see, the character designs are of great quality so that’s a point for Umineko~ So I have to wait for a month before I can get this..? Now I just want to read spoilers.. Oh and have I mentioned that I hear people saying that there are pairings here.. is that true!?*le gasps~* lmao xD

Anyone want to spoil it~?Nyahahaha~ XP

Studio: Studio DEEN

Summary:
Season 2 of TEH BEST ONA SERIES OF 2009 or EVER!? Hetalia Axis Powers.

The story continues from season 1.. blahblahblah Does this even need a summary!? 8DDDDDD

Watching? OF COURSE! >83 I wouldn’t miss it for the world! XP

Yeah~ I suddenly got addicted back to Hetalia again. Ahh~ wonders of fandom xDD I wanna see Prussia… T___T

Anyways, I’m just so glad that there’s close to no gap after the first season before we get the second season >u<

[spoiler]

[/spoiler]
Summary:

Saku Oyagi is a quiet bookworn who moves back to his former hometown. As a high school freshman, he meets his childhood friend Mihoshi Akeno again. Although a traumatic incident long ago had left their relationship in an awkward state if high tension – Mihoshi brings Saku into her Astronomy Club.

Watching? Yup~ ;3

By the looks of it, the story looks interesting so I tried out the manga and wow I wasn’t mistaken, it was good! That’s why I’m looking forward to this one. Plus, I love stars~ what else would be the reason why I couldn’t resist!? Oh wait – it’s the romance! There is romance in this one, right~? xD I mean, it looks kind of obvious that there would be romance and it’s pretty much alright if there wasn’t but it’d be much much better right? Gawd I’m so awaiting for this show~

HOW COME THERE’S LACK OF SHOUJO-ROMANCE SERIES NOWADAYS!? RAEG D:

Other than that, I expect to learn some facts about stars and other astronomical things on this one. ^^ harhar~ It’s also educational so it’s good ne~? X3

Another reason why I’m watching this is because of Kanae Ito~ and her seiyuu awesomeness X3

SEITOKAI NO ICHIZON

Website: http://www.fujimishobo.co.jp/sp/seitokaino_natsu/

Airdate: July 2009 (unconfirmed?)

Studio: Studio DEEN

Summary:

The members of the student council of Hekiyou Gakuen are chosen by a popularity vote. As a result, all the members are cute girls except for Sugizaki Ken, who studied hard to enter the council. This novel is about the endless chattering of the members with full of parodies of “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya”, “Dragon Ball” etc.

Watching? Yep ^^ That is if Studio DEEN continues this. I’ve been hearing that this might get cancelled for Summer `09, I hope not.

So you’re probably wondering, why am I going to watch this? I really don’t know myself. XP I guess one thing is the character design, God I’m so biased~~~ >.< But actually, when I heard of the anouncement that this will be made into an anime adaptation, I just suddenly wanted to check it out. The plot looks typical and cliche but I’m interested in seeing this X3

lol. I noticed that I already have 3 shows from Studio DEEN that I’m watching XD

Also, I like watching animes that are school-themed and I guess it’s even more interesting if it’s about the Student Council this time. hehe XD Me and my petty reasonings~ I’m also dying to know if this has romance or anything. And I just hope this won’t be what I fear it is…

I wanna see its PV nao. >3<

BAKEMONOGATARI

Website: http://www.bakemonogatari.com/

Airdate: July 03, 2009

Studio: SHAFT

Trailer:
[spoiler]

[/spoiler]

Summary:

Koyomi Araragi is almost human again after briefly becoming a vampire. When Hitagi falls down the stairs into arms, he discovers she weighs almost nothing and offers her help from a middle-aged homeless man. Koyomi encounters many different ‘apparitions’ in a series of interconnected stories.

Watching? Yep & Yup! 😀

Hey~ it’s either the plot, or the characters that made me wanna watch this one because it looks interesting in my eyes XP I’m curious as to how SHAFT will animate this; I hope it’d be the SHAFT HQ side because when SHAFT’s LQ, it’s just annoying or disappointing.

So here we have a supernatural series~ how exciting XD I don’t really know much about this other than what’s stated in the summary because the PV didn’t help – NOT AT ALL. 😐 All I can agree on now is that the character design is good, the plot is intriguing yet still confusing. Oh and, I need to get myself used to SHAFT animes being SHAFT-y. 😛 *is reminded of ef ~ a tale of memories~ transitions XDDD*

Also, what’s up with school supplies falling down the girl’s skirt and that bare-chested guy in the website? Oh this better get clear sooner or later.. it’s confusing me! xP

YORU WAKARU GENDAI MAHOU

Website: http://www.gendaimahou.com/

Airdate: July 11, 2009

Studio: Nomad

Trailer: Here

Colored-Character Sketches + Screencaps: Here

Summary:

The story revolves around Koyomi Morishita, a clumsy high school freshman girl who is often mistaken for a grade-schooler because of her shortness. Koyomi becomes a disciple of Misa Anehara, a 25 yr. old graduate student who happens to be one of the most powerful modern-day magicians.

Watching? Maybe..???

Guess what? Yupppp. Character design. and maybe a little tiny bit of the plot..? I know it’s a pathetic reason to watch an anime but you know me..plus, it’s mahou so it may be entertaining or something right..?

Somehow the 10010010000 or something up there reminds of the Zaiphon in 07-Ghost but what I know is that 07-Ghost is better in many many ways. There’s no bishies here. j/k. j/k X3

So I wonder how this will turn out because I’m pretty much clueless about it. Hope it doesn’t disappoint or it doesn’t get boring.

UMI MONOGATARI

Website: http://www.sea-story.tv/

Airdate: June 24, 2009

Studio: ZEXCS

Trailer:
[spoiler]

[/spoiler]

Summary:
Marin and Urin are sisters who live alongside the fish in the ocean. When a beautiful ring falls in the middle of the sea they decide to go on ground for the first time to deliver the right. On an island where high school girl Kanon lives, the encounter between her and Marin awakens a hidden power as the world is threatened by an enveloping darkness.

Watching? Most likely, yes.

lol. Pichi Pichi Pitch, anyone? XP

So here I am again with the main reason I pick an anime. It’s just to oversaid that it’s obvious already. *sigh* You can’t blame me though~ ;D

One thing is that I haven’t seen any show with mermaids or sea-related elements lately so I want to watch this one and also because I want to see how it goes… And also, it’s another mahou-shoujo and mahou-shoujo are shows that I watch when I’m in a busy mood. lolwtf. xD

CANAAN

Website: http://www.canaan.jp/

Airdate: July 04, 2009

Studio: PA Works

Trailers:
[spoiler]

[/spoiler]

Summary:

A present-day story about a detective, a young man, a virus researcher, a freelance writer and a cat mascot character who are brought together by bizarre events with worldwide implications in the Tokyo neighborhood of Shibuya.

Watching? Hmmm.. maybe?

It seems to me that this series is more on the mystery side. Normally, mystery series would bore the hell out of me when I’m in school-mode (I love it when I’m not in busy mode. Weird, huh?) but I want to see how this thing goes.

You can never know, this series might turn out even more interesting so it’s in my list for now~ Oh and by worldwide implications? Waahh I’m curious le~

GA: GEIJUTSUKA ART DESIGN CLASS

Website: http://mv.avex.jp/ga/

Airdate: July 06, 2009

Studio: AIC Plus+

Summary:

The slice-of-life manga revolves around five freshman girls in a high school art class.

Watching? YEP 😀

While not-so many may be planning to watch this, I like my slice-of-life shows so I’m going to watch this~ And look ART – one of my fave subjects at school xP

I haven’t seen the official anime character designs yet but I hope it’s cute and not too over if you know what I mean. I’m just glad that KyoAni ain’t doing this because if they will, they’d probably throw in some moemoemoe-ness in here. At least with AIC Plus+ we can expect less moe..? *hates to much moe*

By the looks of it, I think I already know who’ll be the favorite one but let’s just see. lol at this being like K-On! only with paintbrushes xD

TOKYO MAGNITUDE 8.0

Website: http://tokyo-m8.com/

Airdate: July 09, 2009

Studio: BONES

Trailer:
[spoiler]

[/spoiler]

Summary:

Mirai goes to Tokyo’s Odaiba Islanf with her brother Yutaka, but a powerful tremor causes Tokyo Tower and Rainbow Bridge to grumble and fall, instantly changing Tokyo’s landscape. Mari, a motorcycle delivery woman, helps them head back to their Setagaya home in western Tokyo.

Watching? Yup. :3

There are two reasons why I wanted to watch this show. One is because the premise is intriguing and cool. Second is because I want to know why the hell people is anticipating for this. Maybe it’s because they know that it’s a good story? I honestly don’t know but I’m not afraid to try this. XP

Natural calamities huh~? Hmmm..

Website: http://www.starchild.co.jp/special/kanamemo/

Airdate: July 05, 2009

Everyone else living at the office are all charming, self-assertive bishojo. The story follow’s Kana’s daily life in the fast-paced yet joyous environment.

Watching? Probably..

Before I say any of my other thoughts, I shall say this loud and clear:

ANIME.ART.DISAPPOINTS. DDDDDDD:

I mean, the art in the light novel covers or something were cute but this one, I dunno if it’s cute or weird. D8

Anyways, another slice-of-life show that I decided just for fun~ I ain’t expecting much from this but I just hope that it’s enjoyable. :3

Watching? Yes or No – Maybe a first few eps?

I wanna try watching to one too. I don’t care about baseball or anything but I want to check this out and see if it’s good. It wouldn’t hurt right? And.. this is taisho era right? Cool~ And the character designs aren’t half bad either. Definitely worth a try – no matter how it turns out.

    Don’t you mean that school ENDS on June 8. I don’t think that any school would ever start on June 8, neither would they let you out of school in April(I’m not saying May because that’s when my schools USED to let out(stupid district, George Bush and amusement parks(mosty Astroworld))).

    School next week already? Awww you poor dear~ I wish you good luck with your studies! 😀

    lol. For someone who’s about to begin a school year that’s a lot! Hope you don’t stress yourself hun~ Mmkay`?

    Let`s see… our list is pretty much the same except for two or three shows that I dont want to watch right now . Totally looking forward for the ff. :

    – Tokyo Magnitude 8.0
    – Hetalia 2
    – Umineko no Naku Koro ni

    Why is July still next month…?!

    OH YEAH! I also cannot wait for Fall!~ xDDD

  5. 5 FuyuMaiden June 6, 2009 at 6:02 am

    The anime almost always air one month into the first month of a new season (as far as weather goes). It’s annoying! It screws up my organization! But whatever, I can deal with it.

    Laziness is no sure way to keep yourself away from stress. I’m lazy and that just makes me stress more because there’s stuff I know I need to do, but I still don’t do it. XD

    AND YES! This summer belongs to the girls~

    Sora no Manimani has romance, but I peeked ahead in the manga and it’s definitely moving slowly. Which is fine by me actually. It reminds me of how I get excited about every little thing for a side pairing.

    lol. SHAFT being SHAFT-y…yes that’s something I still need to get used to as well.

    Now as for what I’m picking up this season, well I already said that in my post and it hasn’t really changed much. Though my enthusiasm keeps going up and down. Most because FALL IS GOING TO BE EFFING AWESOME!!!!. I really want to bypass Summer and just get to Fall already (Sora no Manimani can be transplanted into Fall!).

  6. 6 Sapphire Pyro June 6, 2009 at 8:14 am

    I haven’t checked much of the PV’s of the summer lineup yet, so I don’t have my initial impressions on all these series yet.

    But for now . . .

    I’m defintiely watching Hetalia 2.

    I’m also definitely checking out Umineko . . . I liked the manga xD

    *just found out you’re noypi* your school isn’t included among the ones which had their opening classes moved?
