This Japan thing is really creating a dramatic shift out of me. These days I find that watching anime seems more like a chore than a charm. See, I had to take note of when it broadcasts on TV, which is more likely than not after midnight. How do otaku manage to watch them so late? Do they have no jobs (NHK?), or do they have video recorders or something? Ah, the hardships of being a casual anime watcher who happens to like otaku-themed anime.
Oh, and as the seasons change, some new targets spring up at Fall 2006. And it feels all-bishoujo again this season… yay for me (oof so many backlog in there).
Galaxy Angel II – Galaxy Angel was the bishoujo Cowboy Bebop, and I’m so sad that it was over. Hopefully this all-new cast would be as good.
Gift ~Eternal Rainbow~ – This should whet my appetite until the next big D.C. anime comes.
Happiness! – Exactly what I feel.
Love Doll ~Lovely Idol~ – A Princess Soft game conversion.
Kanon – Possibly the best bishoujo game ever made… remade by the ever-l33t Kyoto Animation studio. Take my word for it, this will be beyond Air, beyond Haruhi, and beyond any other bishoujo anime that ever existed (my bias on To Heart is another story).
Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru – Crossdressing + yuri = the ultimate Strawberry Panic. Instant win.
Tokimeki Memorial ~Only Love~ – I never thought I’d see the day. One of the most popular dating sim series of all time is going to have a proper anime series. Now I can know what all the fuss is about.
And then in my wishes come true segment:
Negima!? – Yes! Justice! Give justice to the awesome manga that is Negima!
DEATH NOTE – Ah, the catalyst. The only shounen anime in my list. And boy this is as addictive as crack.
