July Anime Season (Summer 2006)

By bluemist on June 17th, 2006

That time once again?

I’m keeping my new anime watching at a minimum again. It’s quite a hectic time for me these days. I’m still catching up to many-a-spring anime. Add my current penchant for anything Da Capo, I’m sure to give lots more time for gaming than anime.

Speaking of anime though, I wonder if anyone of you noticed this too. It was some anime I anticipated in spring, but all of the sudden it was out of the limelight, and it never aired. My very first case of missing anime:

Where in the world is Finalist?

As for the upcoming summer season, thankfully there are only a few anime that spurred my interest this time, very unlike the massively awesome lineup of spring. And so behold my huge lineup:

Binbou Shimai Monogatari – Anime about poor people = win (remember NieA_7?), because I = poor people.

Tsuyokiss – Tsundere you say? Instant buy! Cool and sweet!

NHK ni Youkoso! – Yet another approach to otakuism just like Genshiken and Comic Party before it. This time, with the topic I like most: bishoujo games.

Chokotto Sister – Something about this intrigues me, so I’ll put it on watch.

I still don’t blog anime episodes, so for more information on these and other anime, please visit our friendly neighborhood anime bloggers and aggregators. That’s it for now.

Yeah! What happened to Finalist?

While I have no desire to see it, I too was wondering the other day where Finalist vanished too. Ask me before the season and I’d have said it was going to be one of the more popular titles around.

Whoa! “NHK ni Youkoso!” is about bishoujo games? I’m totally there, dood. Actually I was beside myself when the teaser for Joushikousei Girls High (one of this season’s animes) started out with a parody of everybody’s first love sim, Tokimeki Memorial. OMG, did that bring back memories of stupid Gameboy Color action. Hahaha.

I guess you’ve also seen stuff about Zero no Tsukaima. It’s some sort of reverse-Harem Potter show. Nyeh.

Tsuyokisu ftw~
