New season (24)

It's time for the new season thread! What shows are you looking forward to? The ones that grabbed my attention when reading the latest NewType ( were:

  • Eureka Seven ( - I really like Kenichi Yoshida's designs, but I wish he'd work on something other than mecha shows. Really not my thing.
  • Trinity Blood ( will apparently be the gothiest show ever.
  • Hachimitsu to Clover (Honey and Clover, looks pleasantly unconventional for a shoujo show. I might watch that if it turns out interesting in other ways than visually, too.
  • The Gainax/Broccoli project Bushilord ( seems to be getting closer. That'll be interesting to see how it turns out. Not sure if that is airing this season or next, though.
  • Sakura Taisen: Le Nouveau Paris OVA on the way.
  • The new Oh! My Goddess series is something one has to pay attention to, I suppose. Looks like they're starting over again with that one.
  • I already watched a bit of the Mahou Sensei Negima anime, but I was not all that impressed. The opening especially seemed really lame.
  • Mahoraba looks like just another harem show, but I'm watching it anyway, because I am big fan of the author of the manga, Kojima Akira. He did Seiken Shoujo, one of my first translations:
  • And for some more moe, there's the He Is My Master anime, the Ichigo Mashimaro anime, and the utterly weird Battle Fairy Girl - Help! Mave-chan OVA.
  • Noted in passing: Full Metal Panic The Second Raid, Xenosaga, Starship Operators.

>Full Metal Panic The Second Raid

Should have been the second fumoffu

Signed. I got bored with FMP after watching half of the first episode, but I loved Fumoffu to bits.

Good time to point out the latest 2chan board where Toshiaki discuss shows that are running as they are posting screencaps of them.

OMG!!!! Trinity Blood is like the best example on how fucked up the catholic church is.

> Seiken Shoujo

Does any more of this exist? I've been looking for it for a while.

On topic, I'm looking forward to AMG if it isn't insta-licensed (and it keeps all the awesome motor-vehicle goodness from the manga this time around) and will give AIR a whirl.

I've been trying to find more Seiken Shoujo for YEARS.

I know there is some in the first volume of Gangan YG, but I haven't been able to get my hands on that.

INSTANT REVIEW : Mahou Sensei Negima

Anime fanservice has evolved from "Onii-chan" to "Sensei".

Mahou Sensei Negima:


You want loli's with that?

The new Oh! My Goddess seems to contain quite a bit of re-writing, and also seems fairly classy. I'm looking forward to more.

Air surprised me by being not completely boring. At least the main character was mildly interesting and had some sort of personality, a rarity in bishoujo shows.

>Trinity Blood

Hey, look, Goth Vash. Also, Studio Gonzo. I might watch this if it doesn't turn out to be full of kawaii goth bishies.

>The new Oh! My Goddess series is something one has to pay attention to, I suppose.

I'm successfully not caring about it.

Starship Operators looks like it deserves much more than a mention in passing, but since nobody's subbing it I can't really say.

More mentions in passing: Jinki EXTEND, Ultimate Girls, Gunbuster 2, Air, Magical Canan, GUNxSWORD

Please try to keep the AA in English and topical.

I'm pretty sure there won't be a single frame of animation that isn't packed edge-to-edge with kawaii goth bishies.

Also, Ultimate Girl is fantastically bad.

Starship Operators is a pretty clever spin on the Nadesico concept. The storytelling was a bit hurried in the first episode, but it's definitely original and interesting.

Sukisho - now I finally know how you guys must feel when you play an H game, and then see it on TV in a dummed down version. It's really weird. Good to hear the voices, but I wasn't really a fan of the game in the first place.

With so many groups doing shows like AMG and Air, anyone have opinions on best/worst subs?

23 Name: !WAHa.06x36 05/01/17(Mon)14:00 ID:AwTGBp/L

Triad's doing Air, and they've never produced anything but quality.

24 Name: Random Anime Otaku 05/01/17(Mon)18:06 ID:aSHdA7KW

I'm going with Solar for AMG and Triad for Air.
