Tasogare Otome x Amnesia : It's about an 'invisible to everyone but one' ghost girl stalker (picture above) cornering & feeling up a pseudo-smart-looking lucky bastard. Well, not really, but the ghost part is accurate? Basically is about a guy that can see a ghost and tries to find out things about her past since it's interesting and no one else is cares enough to help. The story is simple and what not but the way it's told is pretty interesting; also the source material is clever on it's narrative and that's what makes me have hopes for the anime (for example, there are like 100 female characters and a single guy, however this isn't an harem, there it isn't even a love triangle, also there are virtually no panty shots nor clumsy nude scenes nor walking into someone changing and cheap stuff like that. As I said the author is a "clever" and tries to keep things fresh even though the formula that he is using is not new). The first episode is "hard to follow" because it's an episode where everyone is already together, the next episodes are going to show how the characters get related. I'm a big fan of the manga simply because when you look at a page you can tell that the mangaka worked on it for over 4 hours (it's like an oppai version of Miura
), I don't hope for such magnificent visual representation and obsessive production values to translate into the anime, though; since anime has been about efficiency for a while now.
Uchuu kyodai. To some the big surprise of the season, but I knew from the start that this was going to be good. It's about some brothers that suddenly want to become astronauts. It's a lot more serious and interesting than what I make it sound
New Eureka Seven = Yes.
Umi no Nadia remastered = Yes.
Accel World : The novel bored me immensely and the only thing that kept me going was the possibility of the main female lead being a schemer and having an evil agenda where she was going to discard the gullible protagonist, that seemed cool, but in for about 150 pages that possibility was cleared up (I dropped the story a few pages later). The anime doesn't even spark that doubt and thus is an utterly simple story about brats fighting in a virtual MMORPG where everyone are friends and happy until the lose too many times in a row and then go to hell (as in, they are forced to drop the game permanently).
Someone told me that I was sure to like Sakamachi no Apollon and Hyou-ka . I'll check them up when they have more episodes.
Arashi ni Yoru ni : I'll check it out, I have a good feeling about this. It's about a wolf and a sheep that become friends and have to work together or something. It reminded me that fable about the scorpion and the frog and even though I'm not even sure that such fable has an english version I'm still having good hopes with this.
Saint Seiya Omega. I wasn't that interested in the 80s, and I'm much less interested now.
Sankerea : Some people compare it with Tasogare Otome x Amnesia due to (in their eyes) slightly similar premise, and that's highly insulting to Amenesia, of course, not only on the premise side but also on how the story unveils itself; this has all of the over used cliches about a teenager romantic comedy that you might want to watch and I don't.
Medaka Box: Don't go near it if you are older than 12, else your brain is going to end in that mental age after this.
There is also the things that everyone is supposed
to be watching, like Rurouni Kenshin, Zetman, Fate & probably something good that I'm not mentioning. edit
