Update: Previews & Reviews

Seeing as how I haven’t written anything for the past 12 days I suppose I’ll give you the readers a little heads up of whats to come.

Alright, first off, Lucky Star is nearing its end of its 24 episode run. Scenes from the final episode will be used in the review so be prepared to expect some spoilers from the images. Review for ARIA The OVA ~ARIETTA~ will be delayed due to the fact that I haven’t really been watching ARIA The NATURAL. So don’t worry about not seeing a review of ARIA The OVA for a short while.

Now for Previews. Preview for episode 9 of Zero no Tsukaima: Futatsuki no Kishi has been canceled. I apologize for this but I forgot that it was episode 9 I was suppose to preview so I kind of messed up there. Since episode 10 is coming out sometime this week, I will be doing a preview using that episode. Remember to check the date and episode for previews in Anime List (Fall 2007). Rental Magica, Sketchbook ~full color’s~, CLANNAD, and ef – A Tale of Memories will not be airing until sometime in October so no preview of those will be showing yet. If any trailers have been uploaded onto Tokyo Toshokan for any of these series, I will download them and write a little preview of it.

That is all for the update, here is a little table of what is said above to make it a little easier:

Fall 2007 Preview

It’s almost back to school… its a sad, sad time for all anime watchers but good thing newer anime is coming out! So, to prepare for that here is a list of the Fall anime of 2007. The date/time in the list is not the confirmed official time and may be subject to change.

Please check MOON PHASE for entire listing of anime and air time, check AndrewLB’s Fall 2007 wiki for which fansub is subbing what. These are the only one I am currently interested and hopefully you guys will be watching these ones too. Anyway lets start shall we?

Premiere Date/Airtime in Japan are subject to change

CLANNAD
http://www.tbs.co.jp/clannad/index-j.html
Premiere Date: October 4th, 2007
Airtime in Japan (JST, GMT+9):Thursdays at 25:55
I guess for anyone who has played the visual novel already know what story could possibly be about. Supposedly the TV anime is an alternate retelling of the movie that was premiered in Japan theaters only. I don’t know what the story is going to be about, but I do hope its gonna be a fantastic one since it is by KEY who also did Air and Kanon visual novels. Both of those had wonderful story so I’m pretty sure CLANNAD would also have a wonderful story that would make you wish for a sequel of some sort.

Odds of me sticking with this series: Guaranteed

ARIA The OVA ~ARIETTA~
http://www.ariacompany.net/ova.html
Premiere Date: September 2nd, 2007
Airtime in Japan (JST, GMT+9):Sundays at 24:00
ARIA is probably the most beautiful series I have watched. The graphics are just so beautiful and Neo-Venezia is beautiful. Makes you want to live there. So anyway, this is probably the last sequel (I hope not) to ARIA. Akari is still trying to be a Prima like Alicia. This is one of those anime even though its a OVA that I cannot wait for. September 2nd though, thats pretty soon.

ef – a tale of memories
http://www.ef-memo.com/
Premiere Date: October 2007
Airtime in Japan (JST, GMT+9):TBA
Another new anime based of a visual novel. I’m not going to talk too much about this one since I have no idea what this anime is possibly going to be about so no details here or anything. But I hope you will check it out anyway.

Sketchbook ~full color’s~
http://www.sketch-full.net/
Premiere Date: October 1st, 2007
Airtime in Japan (JST, GMT+9):Mondays at 26:00
I think this might be like Hiwamari Sketch, just a group of friends who like to draw and tend to do really stupid and funny things. I actually like Hiwamari Sketch but I could never find any torrents for the next episode so I just gave up. Hopefully a fansub would be kind enough to stick with this anime and sub it long enough so that I can enjoy or it hate it, either way.

Rental Magica

Premiere Date: October 2007
Airtime in Japan (JST, GMT+9):TBA
A kid named Itsuka Iba inherits a “rent-a-magician” company called Astral, complete with quirky, magic-wielding employees after his father had disappeared. The kid has a freaky red right eye but he covers it with an eye patch. I just this on my Newtype USA September issue and thought it looked pretty cool with this red eye of his. Thought I might as well check it out, I wonder if this red eye of his is like a Geass. That be pretty cool.

Animes Licensed by Geneon

I’m reading previous issues and seeing what Geneon has decided to bring to the American audience and seems like they have decided on getting Zero no Tsukaima. I hope this series does well in the American audience, I loved the series when I first watched it and hoped for a sequel. There is a sequel coming out for Zero no Tsukaima this Summer 2007. Here is a list of what Geneon is bringing to us.

  • Zero no Tsukaima
  • Higurashi no naku Koroni
  • Rozen Maiden

Although Rozen Maiden and Higurashi’s vol 1 dvd is already released it doesn’t hurt to remind you people that these 2 great series is brought to you by Geneon and you should definitely check them out.

Summer 2007 Preview

It’s almost that time of the year where we get to sit back, relax and just watch anime all day. So, to prepare for that here is a list of the summer anime of 2007. The date/time in the list is not the confirmed official time and may be subject to change.

Please check MOON PHASE for entire listing of anime and air time, check AndrewLB’s Summer 2007 wiki for which fansub is subbing what. These are the only one I am currently interested and hopefully you guys will be watching these ones too. Anyway lets start shall we?

Premiere Date: July 8th, 2007
Airtime in Japan (JST, GMT+9): Sundays at 25:30
I have no idea what this anime is about but it looks damn interesting. It’s one of those weird magical girl animes again. The only magical girl anime I liked was Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha. Other than that I never really watched magical girl anime because they always seem tedious and kiddish. This one seems that way as well but its a comedy so I might as well try one episode and see what its like.

Odds of me sticking with this series: Decent (Subject to Change)

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai
http://www.oyashirosama.com/web/news/kai.htm
Premiere Date: July 3rd, 2007
Airtime in Japan (JST, GMT+9): Tuesdays at 26:30
The first one was creepy as hell and I enjoyed it. I will definitely be watching this one. I really love the chapter for Rena in the first one. That one was the most creepy one of them all. I didn’t really finish the first one though because I had to reformat my computer so I lost everything… I’ll probably go back and watch the first one again from where I left off if I can remember.
