and now that the season started i'll start posting up on the anime that i started watching ^_^

i won't watch everything and if your watching a fall season anime that 'm not just pm your write up, or contribute a better explanation ^_^

So this is one of the bgest seasons yet out of the years i have watched anime ^_^, plenty of shows to keep me bright and happy, and awaiting the second season to EF, Gundam, Rosario, and Clannad (okay...so Rsoario doesn't deserve to be put next to the other three shows XP, but what ever). as well there are great shows that seem to be coming up this season, although a majority of these shows will be 12-13 episodes long (the ormance comedies), there will probably be a few that will go into the 20+ episodes (Gundam,Index, etc.) so i'm quite optimistic of this season (but i generally like everything ^_^ that looks good XD)

5- romance/comedy
1- school life comedy
3- action
(count updated later tonight)

Clannad: After Story
Genre: Drama, School life
OP: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3aa5zOVAwc
ED: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzOxIa1NayA (aww they got rid of Dango)
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RA7EzhvUysI

The second season to Clannad, This bring sback everybody from the first season, and continues on the story. original concept done by key, and based of the Game, it continous on the part of te "after Story" which is basically part two and what happens after school. Those who haven't watched the first season WATCH IT your missing out on a great anime.

The first episode takes place with a baseball match, whereall the characters from the first Arc get together to play baseball (except Fuuko...
she's still in the hospital at this time...i think...she didn't do one of her random pointless acts in this episode
. not much to say bu it was a comedic opening that left a "i feel good about myself" feeling

Akane Iro Ni Somaru Saka
Genre: Romance-Comedy (Most likely), School Life
OP: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n0uVgOrOoYM
ED: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbEf0-2kyFI
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXHbUPXxvcA

Akane iro...i'll just abreviate as AINSS...this is what will most liekely be a stereotypical school life comedy. originally an adult visual novel, this will be most likely be a sterotypical anime of this genre with pantyshots and love-love relations ships forming somewhere in the story (as, having a sex scene would make it a hentai ) . but i'm not to judge till i actually watch it. I'm a sucker for these type of anime, even though i already basically know the storyline...but the first episode left me with a similar feeling like clannad.

basically Jun'ichi Nagase (male lead) saves Yuuhi Katagiri from a pair of teenage delinguents who "want her to play" with them. he leaves her in a cool fasion when her butler (yeah she's rich :roll: ) arrives coincidently after. with not even telling him his actual name excep his nickname which is 'Genokiller' (which itself is an overexageration (sp)). Suprise surpise the next day when school starts she tranfered into his class. well let's see how this goes... will it be somewhat innovative or fall into obsucrity along with all the other anime that are basically like this. (this contains a Imouto, tranfer student, idol, and childhood friend...so i'm thinking this won't be that innovative XD)

Casshern Sins
Genre: Action/Adventure
OP: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_bFqbH6fXw
ED: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrxLKt_RFvE
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKw8QwhexVE

I'm thinking this s based off the movie (casshern). but im not really sure about this... i'll let some other people look into that. anyway th anime has one majour downfall...the main character's suit! i just want to hit him for wearing that -.-... anyway.. in a world leading down the path of destruction, there are only robots that survived. these robots are also dissolving away as time goes bye, so all life (including mechanical) are dying. Casshern is the main character and he's what i think is a perfect weapon of destruction, but the thing is he starts off not knowing what he is and infact only knows his name by the robots that want to kill him to stop this "destrution" or gain immortality.

Casshern has great animation, faced paced action scenes, and what i hope to be a good storyline. this will probably be something i'll watch. only thing i don't like is the main character design!!

Genre: Romance-Comedy, School Life
OP: -Can'ts find one first glance-
ED: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMPK1BTmtGg
another tsundere romance-comedy play by Rie Kagimiya (type cast again -.-)...

anyway. this is an anime about the main character (Ryūji Takasu) who has a scary face and most people who see's him treats him like a delinquent. infact Ryuji isn't really a delinquent (surpise surpise) but pretty responsible, and a neat freak. He meets a girl namned Taiga Aisaka (nickneamed Palmtop Tiger) and get punched in the hall because she bumpedinto ryuji. Apparently the both of them like eachothers best friends, but most likely they'll start to like each other as Ryuji soon beomes Taiga's "dog"... highly predictable, but i'll watch it for some laughs.If uor new to this type o anime, you should probably start off with Love Hina, Seto no Hanayome, etc...this could be mediocre, but showed early promise (much like To Luv-RU -.-)

Genre: supernatural (deals with gods), comedy, romance (going on a lib there)
OP: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDv7vRxmuDU
ED: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQEtLdDk6Mw
trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDiEDh8F0Yg

developed by A-1, it deals with a Kami (shinto god) who was a tree. the tree was cut down during a shrine restoration and a piece of the tree came into the possession of Jin Mikuriya, an art student. sculpting the wood into a form of the girl the Kami, named nagi bursts out of the sculpture. now a goddess who has lost her powers Nagi lives with Jin. there is also the importance of keeping the land clear of impurities (hichharm nagi but don't hurt Jin)

my thoughts on Kannagi is that it will be a funny show. to me it has alot of potential, but lets see how this goes.

Gundam 00 second season
Genre: Mecha, Drama
OP: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ne1dTp5X2aU
ED: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAjXbw2A ... re=related
trailer: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_q ... type=&aq=f

Well here w go season two of G:00 and i'm psyched ^_^ saji comes into realization that setsuna is really a member of celestial being and Lyle Dylandy, has been invited to become the new Lockon Stratos. Allelujah Haptism is locked somewhere, and all the old characters return ^_^...and who would have thought that Louis would become a member of the new federation military forces 0.o. and i'm guessing the frozen bear (the russian guy) proposed to his leuitenant...and Saji cries more :heh:

anyway...to start from S2 will make no sense WATCH FIRST SEASON if uou want to understand the character backgrounds, and basically why things are like this. The first ep was great ^_^
so bascially this story takes place 5 years later, everyone is grown up.... youight understand it if you start watching with the second season... but i doubt that ou'll understand everything

Rosario+Vampire Capu 2
Genre: School life, Supernatural, Harem, Comedy
OP: no op in first ep
ED: ttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9T0XXgG8hg
trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCKzUDBxR4I

the second season . it bring everyone back and introduces Moka's sister.
if you don't like ALOT of panty shots, and sexual situations...most likely you'll hate this anime. watch the first season first and decide for yourself if you want to continue this. imight drop this i might not..but apparently their making thins a bit more intense...

To Aru Majutsu no Index
Genre: Action (with powers), school life (perhaps...after all it is a school city)
OP: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBV3jpToBqA
ED: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93xzE6NpqyQ
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvQolh_F6kY

in a school city there are people who have psychic, magical, and devine powers. the main character Tōma Kamijō has the ability to negate all types of powers with his right hand (imagine breaker) but on the psychic power list he is a level 0, but is also cursed with misfortune. he wakes up one day to find a girl handing over the rail to his veranda, helping her out he finds out that the girls name is Index and asries 103 thousand volumes of forbidden magic.

well this is an interesting show non-the less...i would have gotten tired of 5 romace comedies with just gundam and casshern sins to balance everything out. i actually had a good impression...but then again i like most anime...A very good start to a show and it left me wanting more ^_^ lets see how this goes

Kuro Shitsuji
Genre: Supernatural, Horror(?)
OP: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zttk-jkJA84
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GHxKyLE0DNw

The series sounds pretty good, a demon butler and a kid who can deal prophecies of pain through a boardgame. the series is pretty dark, yet bright at the same time, with the three supporting characters...i'll cut this descriptor short mainly cuz i want to play Atlantica right now XD... but it's a good series, if it keeps it up i'll probably watch it

i'm going to be lazy and post the ANN link http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclo ... p?id=10160

Tales of the Abyss
Genre: Game, action/adventure
OP: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edKrVa3YO_U
ED: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPcZnyMg7Es
trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2GsAuVM6-4

To those that played the game, there is finally an anime out. i never really watched the first ep, and started watching from the second. i can say this is good quality and, not that bad. though i think this is going to lead into Video-game anime hell :/

i'll continue to watch how it plays out as i need something to balance out the Romance-Comedies this season XD

Ga-Rei Zero
Genre: Supernatural, Action, Horror(?)
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lSQQpSAq9A

AN AMAZING FIRST EPISODE! heck they kill off who i thought was the protagonists in the first ep!
i'm usualy not into these type of anime, but this definately suprised me and i' m definately going to watch to balance everything out ^_^

I don't exactly know what to say, sincei actually have to characters to base the story off of since they kill basically everyone off :/... soi'll just give out a link http://randomc.animeblogger.net/2008/10 ... i-zero-01/

EF: A tale of melodies
Genre: Romance/Drama
OP: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGoc88PdifA
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bt9QKZdeAGI

Return of EF, (the first season EF: A tale of Memories) i couldn't keeep up last time, but watched most of the last season to get a gist of the caharacters. the characters are back and people are now older. it's quite a great show, if you like these type of shows. i love the art owrk and the ustic of the show , the story isn't as bad either so it ges a thumbs ups
...more to come as i watch more subbed anime

anime i dropped or skipped
Hyakko - Why did i drop this before i even started watching this? ...i just really don't like the art style... plus after watching the first few minuits of the episode i decided it wasn't for me...i'll try to pick this up....
Iron Line Barrel (something like that XD) - I dropped t ainly uz there's way too much promising series to watch this season!!, and old school animation...mech designs are great and for a mecha the storyling is either reall good or terrible....so... i'm probably gonna lean on very good for this one....
Shikabane Hime: AKA: - i dropped this because of way too much to watch could be promising but i don't erally know...
Assassin of the Black Knights
Naru-chan's hubby50 YEN FEE TO CALL ME PINK
I'm in Dispair! (insert random social problem here) has left me in dispair!
