Oooookay. New anime.  There are a lot of them.  But~ only a few that caught my interest.


1. Kimi ni Todoke Season 2

Yup.  I am ever much a fun of Kimi ni Todoke.  Yes.  It’s shoujo.  I don’t do much of shoujo unless it’s more of a shounen ai variety or if it’s bearable.  But, like Skip Beat!, Kimi ni Todoke just captured my heart~♥! X3  I fell in love with the manga as soon as I started reading and I just can’t get enough of it.  Unlike all other shoujo manga I’ve read so far, it doesn’t leave me with a frustrated feeling.  It’s just soooo~ easy to read and it’s soooo~ easy to fall in love with the characters.  The first season ended with the New Year chapter and the manga has come a long~ way~.  But I still wanna watch the anime even though I know what’s gonna happen.  That’s how addicted I am to this manga/anime.  lawl  Well, there’s only a few episodes out.  I’m gonna wait a few more weeks so I can watch episodes and not feel frustrated while waiting for another.




2. Gosick

At first, I wasn’t interested in watching this anime.  But then I remembered.  There’s a manga of this one that was adapted from a light novel.  And the manga was just sooooo~ interesting.  It’s about a male Japanese exchange student who meets a girl in a library.  The manga’s interesting and has mystery written all over it.  Too bad only a few chapters have been scanlated.  I watched the first episode and I was surprised that it was somehow different from the manga.  Hmm….. oh well.  This one is definitely going to be a fave~

[Oh, I’ve been thinking a whole lot what on earth ‘Gosick’ means.  I’ve been thinking about it over and over and over and over and over again.  And I finally had a lightbulb moment.  Then I realized that, all along, there’s been katakana readings all over the place.  ugh… I can’t believe I’m so stupid.  ]


3. Fractale

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to watch this one.  The summary I saw wasn’t a bit interesting.  So I downloaded an episode on a whim.  And, wow.  I was surprised.  The premise of the story is quite interesting.  It’s set in he future when people have doppleganger-thingies that could take a place of a person even if that person is far away.  The main character lives alone with doppels of his parents.  How cool is that~?  So, anyway, the people are living in a somewhat Utopia-kind of place.  There’s no war or anything.  People don’t need to work because basic needs are provided and everyone receives an equal and basic income.  But, a terminal is embedded inside a person.  And, apparently, at the end of the day, they’re required to pray or something.  It’s weird, though.  Since it seems like the Fractale system is reading their minds.  Or maybe not.  Maybe I’m just being creepy here.  *laughs*  Anyway, this anime seems to have some promise.

Oh, and on another note, I’m liking Fractale’s opening them. XD


4. Level E

Oh wow.  This is going to have an anime?  *laughs*  It’s been years since I’ve read the manga.  *laughs*  For those who don’t know, Level E has the same mangaka has Yu Yu Hakusho.  Anyway, it has a bit of a sci-fi theme going on.  When I first encountered the manga, I was a bit hesitant since it didn’t seem like the kind of manga I read [that time, I was such a kid and was falling in love with Inuyasha and Fushigi Yuugi. Now, I don’t think I can stand those manga anymore~ *laughs*]  It’s been a while since I’ve read the manga so I think I’m going to dig up some of my older CDs and files so I can reread it. *laughs*  So far, the anime’s interesting.  I’m sooo~ looking forward for the upcoming episodes~.


5. Starry Sky

Wow.  When I first read about this anime… I was excited.  It’s a male harem for crying out loud!  Harem and seemingly-Harem anime seem to dominate.  [Ah, but for the past few seasons there’s been harem anime out. read: Hakuoki lawl]  So, anime, I was excited about this one.  I mean, just give me bishies and I’d be happy.  *laughs*  The first episode was interesting.  But the second one was a bit…. *sigh*  For the meantime, I’ve stopped at episode two.  I’d wait for a few more eps [maybe until episode 7 or 8 is out…?] before I watch them again.  The episodes are about 10-15 minutes long.  And the bishies… ah~ the bishies~!  I love the bishies.  They are soooo~ hot.  I love them.  Yeah.  Hear me rant.  I am such a nerd.  *laughs*



6. Beelzebub

I love the manga even though it doesn’t makes sense sometimes. *laughs*  I watched the first ep.  It was cool.  Baby Beel was just sooooooo~ adorable. I go ‘awwwww~♥’ everytime I see him and hear him speak.  *laughs*  The voice actors were okay, kinda like how I expected them to be in my head when I read the manga.  Sooooo~ looking forward for the next episodes.




7. Hourou Musuko

The manga is cool.  Really.  The main characters are children but it focuses on such important issues.  I haven’t watched the first ep yet.  Like I said before, I’m waiting until a few more episodes are out before I start watching.  I do hope it’s cool.


So, there it is.  The list of anime I’m going to add to my watch list.  I do hope they don’t disappoint in later episodes.   Oh, but there’s still Mai no Mahou to Katei no Hi.  It starts airing February… or so I’ve heard.  It seems interesting so I think I might watch it.
