TheBigN’s Crappy One/Two-Liner 2008 Fall Preview

As I’ve stated before, I haven’t done these things before because for most of the shows, I don’t know jack about them, so I thought there was no point. Well, I still think there’s no point in the matter, but because I can’t really think of anything else to post about for the moment (and the Hidamari Sketch x365 posts come when subs come, though I’ve already finished the series *tear*), I figured why not show-off my lack of knowledge and not-so-great humor? If you want actual valuable information, see the many other blogs that have the reviews for this season. Otherwise, here are my “brief” thoughts, with a few unrelated pictures because I’m lazy. Yes, it’s that crappy. 😛

And while on that, for Marimite Season 4.

Waiting for the upcoming Season 3.

Akane Iro ni Somara Saka – Doesn’t pique my interest nor push any buttons.

Battle Spirits Shounen Toppa Version – lol kids show that I’m not watching.

Bihada Ichizoku – I assume that I’ll never need cosmetics in my life, so I also assume that I’ll never need this in my life either. Prove me wrong on the latter, I guess?

Casshern SINS – Caps make everything better, but no interest on it right now.

Chaos;Head – English in anime names are fun times (Sketchbook ~full color’S~), but I’m not planning on watching it though.

CLANNAD ~After Story~ – Really liked the first season, but I hear this is more typical-Key. So I’m banking on not liking this as much.

Ef ~A tale of melodies~ – SHAFT led me to a tale of memories, and I drunk it. Expect similar things here.

Ga-rei Zero – My first glimpse of this was from Kodansha’s panel at Otakon, and even then nothing stirred inside.

Gundam 00 Second Season – I’m too anal to start something “midway”, so probably on my “backlog”.

Hakushaku to Yousei – Not sure if this Count will be as cool as Edmond Dantes, so I’ll wait to see what others say about it.

Hyakko – This stuff is like bread and butter for me, and the manga chapters I read were pretty entertaining, so of course I’m watching it. Not watching because of character designs is overrated.

A little foreshadowing.

A little foreshadowing.

Hokuto no Ken Raoh Gaiden: Ten no Haoh – Manly slice-of-life, from the villain’s POV.  Might watch it, but should work some more on Golgo 13 first.

Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae – See Gundam 00 Second Season. Also waiting for the Shigofumi OVA to be subbed.

Junjou Romantica – lol at joke in RenAi Blogger. No interest on watching it.

Kannagi – I think people might be overlooking another possible gem here (there, I said it.). Another show I’ll be watching as it comes out, but with that there was more Crazy Shrine Maidens than what I saw in the manga.

Kemeko Deluxe – Also up my alley in another comedic sense it seems. Should keep an eye on it.

Kurogane no Linebarrel – Hearing that Kana Ueda was in it was enough for me to watch fact that Corniche is doing the music (love the job they did with Hitohira) just makes a must see for me.  Hating on a studio is overrated.

Kuroshitsuji – I’m a fan of badass maid(guy)s and butlers, so of course I’ll be checking this out as well.

Kurozuka – There are too many “Kuro”s this season. From my limited memories of the manga, this is mature, gritty stuff, so fringe alert?

Macademi Wasshoi – To show off my hypocrisy and shallowness, this looks too silly for my tastes from first glance. Prove me wrong again, I guess. :3

Michiko to Hatchin – Another must-watch for me. All I hope is to see someone who knows and uses Capoeira among everything else in the show, since it’s set in Brazil-like area and all. 😛

Nodame Cantabile Paris-hen – Loved season one, so right there for season two, if nothing more than to hear Ayako Kawasumi as Nodame again.

Noramimi 2 – See Gundam 00 blah blah blah…

One Outs – Will watch because it’s cool to be anti-irrational dislike. Also because the pitcher reminds me of Hiruma from Eyeshield 21.

This is Kannagi BTW.

lol TYPE-MOON in so many ways.

Rosario to Vampire CAPU2 – Remember what I said about sequels where I haven’t seen the original? Me too, plus this is no Kanokon.

Skip Beat – Not in a romantic mood lately. Or ever, now that I think about it. :/

Shikabane Hime: Aka – Not something I’ll keep up with, but something I’ll probably watch during the season when I’m done with everything else.

Stitch – Another lol kids show I’m not watching.

Tales of the Abyss – I might need to watch more video game-based shows anyway.

Tantei Senshi Sunred – Looks like lol random humor, which means a d(“d) from me. 😀

To Aru Majutsu no Index – If I watched this, it’s because the nun uniform reminds me of Orange Planet’s undinewear. 😛

Toradora – Most overcome my fear of a stereotypical Rie Kugiyama role to watch it.  Said overcoming is a work in process.

Tytania – Epic space operas aren’t usually my thing, but I also think more people should check it out. I don’t know why though.

Vampire Knight Guilty – Yeah… sequels… :/

Yozakura Shiusou ~Yozakura Quartet~ – Last time I watched something because a cast pic look interesting, it was Rental Magica. Hopefully this will be better, as I’m taking this risk again.

And speaking of risks, should I do this again? 😛

No matter what the answer is, I will still have Shikieiki and the sunset.

    Aside from the obvious ones (Clannad and ef), I’m mostly looking forward to Toradora and Chaos;Head this fall. Maybe a little Gundam, too.

    Something is wrong with this season if I’m only looking forward to Kuroshitsuji and Chaos;Head, while in summer season it was six series.

    Torako jumps out of the window in the preview too, so anyone how was paying attention knows about her trademark move. What’s up with all the jumping though? You know how Manabi does it and IT HURTS A LOT? Stupid girls.

    I’m just waiting for a series that issa-sa really loves so I can watch it and hate it.

  5. 5 Owen September 30, 2008 at 7:34 am

    Will watch because it’s cool to be anti-irrational dislike.

    Sweet, another confirming non-conformist. Score!

    Will be highly anticipating your reviews of what you call your “bread and butter”, since I’m going to pass on them till I hear good news.

    Scheris: It just means that your priorities this season are lower than previous ones. I don’t think it means that this season will suck, but it just doesn’t have what you’re looking for.

    Author: I’d say get more info before you say that, but given that I don’t have much myself out of the first two chapters (which show off what happens after that and where it goes from there), I should as well. 😛

    And Manabi jumped off a bridge, don’tcha know? Same concept, but different execution. :3

    blissmo: This will backfire on you one day, and you know it. 😛

    Owen: Hopefully it works out that way. :3

    Oh, I thought jumping out the window was a Toki o kakeru shoujo reference…

  8. 8 omisyth October 1, 2008 at 4:18 pm

    Because I don’t know what to say.

  9. 9 Shin October 2, 2008 at 1:00 am

    Michiko to Hatchin for me; it’s been a while since I saw anything from Manglobe. Then there’s the obligatory Nodame Cantabile. Tales of the Abyss only because I like the game.

    Skip Beat is not a romance manga, at least not the usual fluffy shoujo romance series per se. It’s brimming with genki optimism and “ROW ROW FIGHT DA POWAA”!! So yes, I highly suggest you give it a try, N, at least an ep!

    I’m also gonna watch One Outs, especially if I’ll be able to drag my brother to watch and be all hyped up for it in my behalf!
