I didn’t even have an idea of what was airing in the Winter 2010 season until most of the new shows already started airing, so I’m having to make decisions about what I want to watch based on less information and time thinking than I usually do.
From the Fall Season, Kimi ni Todoke, Fullmetal Alchemist, Kobato, Railgun, and Letter Bee are all continuing, so I’m looking for 3 to 4 shows to replace the shows that have finished up. Here are some quick thoughts on some of the series airing in the fall. I’ll skip anything that looks too kiddie or which is a sequel to something I haven’t seen:
A show about a middle school student starting an “underwear club” to spread the merits of wearing sexy underwear. Um, double triple quadruple super duper duper hell no.
Sora no Woto
So basically, this looks like it’s like K-ON!, except worse, because they’re in the middle of a war.
Ladies vs Butlers!
I’m not even sure what to think about this series. It definitely looks like a harem, and it’s along the “girls go wild over young-looking-boys” type. I guess that’s better than the young-looking-girls shows. Maybe.
Another orphaned-boy-taken-in-by-neighbor-girls-parents story. Except this time the magical girl who pops up is a cat girl. And the boy is allergic to cats. This at least sounds mildly interesting. At least far more interesting than any of the shows so far.
Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu
This kind of sounds like Special A, except in reverse. I’m not sure about the summoning creatures part of this show though.
Dance in the Vampire Bund
I’m not really one for Vampire shows, but this show actually looks (visually) interesting, and it’s done by SHAFT, which definitely helps it.
Basically sounds like gangs looking for a mythical head of a headless motorcycle rider. Mmmm…not the worst show I’ve seen this season but I still think there are better things to watch.
This is a show based off of a game made by the people who did Higurashi. I’ve never seen any of those series, but I’ve been curious about them.
Seikon no Qwaser
A show about people who can manipulate iron and who draw power from breast milk fighting each other. That sounds like there is too much that can go bad here.
This is by GAINAX which, of course, means this show won’t have a proper ending.
An actually somewhat decent looking Edo-era sword fighting show. I’ll have to see if it ultimately makes my cut or not, though.
So, My Watch List Is…
I wasn’t planning on picking up another series to blog this season unless there was just something that looked fantastic, and there isn’t, so I’ll only add shows to watch. I think this time, I’ll only add 3 shows. I felt like I was going to add either 3 or 5, and I didn’t want 5 new shows, so I went with my top 3, and they are:
Dance in the Vampire Bund
