2010 Winter Anime Season Preview

For regular, or semi-regular readers of Bokutachi no Blog you may have just had a strange sense of deja vu. Yes, this is the second time I’ve posted this season preview. The problem was the last post seemed to have offended Google for some reason. For the first day or two it attracted plenty of hits but then suddenly stopped showing up on their search engine. If you typed in ‘Bokutachi no Blog Winter Season Preview’, all you would get is last years winter season preview post. Now if this was any other post I wouldn’t mind but this is a bloody season preview! We’re dead proud of this baby and it took far too long to make to let it disappear off into obscurity. So let’s try this again: Welcome to Bokutachi no Blog’s Winter 2010 Anime Season Preview!

::Edit:: Now Google has decided the old one exists but this version doesn’t. Bloody typical


The info on here was taken from a load of places, including but not limited to ANN, MAL, Moetron, Chartfag’s amazing chart, Mangafox, Animesuki forums and a load of other places I can’t remember. Also a lot of info was taken from each respective anime’s website. If you click on the title of each anime it will take you to their website.

I completely encourage anyone to link this preview on a forum or wherever but for gods sake do NOT copy and paste the entire thing onto a forum or your own website. I swear, this happens more often than you might think.



Studio: Brains Base

Additional Info: Based off novel by the same author who wrote Baccano. Airing 7th Jan

Synopsis: The story takes place in a downtown of Tokyo, Ikebukuro. Teenage punks gang up and fight against each other. The gangsters are afraid of an urban legend “Dullahan” headless rider, who rides a black motorcycle without head lights nor sounds of engine. Ryuugamine Mikado is a normal high school boy who seeks peculiar beings. When He moves in to Ikebukuro, a mad scramble for Dullahan’s missing head breaks out.

Scamp: Same director, same author, same studio, same character designer. Yup, this is pretty much the closest we will get to a Baccano season 2. Even if you haven’t seen Baccano (and if you haven’t you should really go educate yourselves) all the signs still point to this being an awesome anime. I read some reviews from people who’ve read the novel and they said that Baccano wasn’t just a once off. Durarara is just as fantastic, if admittedly quite different in style. I would be fanboying over it a bit more but I did that already back in October. Besides, everyone knows that this is the show to watch out for in the winter season.

Brian: Did you say Baccano? I’m already onto it. Durarara sounds psychotic at first but if it is as brilliant as Baccano, then I don’t mind being psychotic as well. Even the premise of the story reminded me of xxxHolic. If there is any anime to watch this winter, it’s definitely this one.

 Kaza: Brain Base has a knack for making psychotic animation, if you ask me. But hey, like Brian said, no wrong there! From what I’ve seen it looks more then great, it looks (and already is) genuine quality material. Although I’d think of Durarara as the Japanese version of “The headless Horseman”, no doubt this is one to watch this season. BTW, any anime that has a guy getting pegged with a fridge is at least worth watching.

 Loba: So….Baccano? Hm, from a guy who never watched that before, the closest the preview reminds me of is Ga-Rei Zero which are similar in 2 aspects : Mystery involved and school kids fighting action! I guess this sums up my thoughts about this. Most likely watching.

 Blindability: I’m a “definitely watch” for this. Everything from the character design and animation to what looks like a very interesting cast of characters appeals to me. I really enjoyed Baccano! so I’m expecting I’ll like this as well. I’m also loving this Headless Motorcyclist who wields a huge scythe; I love anyone on a motorcycle with a helmet. Oh, and Kaza: the guy was pegged with a garbage receptacle; not a fridge.

Dance in the Vampire Bund

vampire bund

Studio: Shaft

Additional Info: Based off manga

Synopsis: After millennia in hiding, Mina Tepes, the Princess of the ancient covenant and ruler of all vampires, wants change. Using the vast wealth of the Tepes line, she has paid off the entire gross national debt of Japan and in so doing, gained the authority to create a “special district” off the coast of Japan that is to become the future haven to vampires the world over! Now, on the eve of the landmark press conference announcing the existence of vampires to the world, terrorists and rival factions are plotting to assassinate Mina Tepes before she has a chance to make her world-changing announcement.

Scamp: Ever wondered what Elfen Lied would’ve looked like if done by Shaft? I present to you Dance in the Vampire Bund. As you can tell from the trailer, there’s plenty of blood and gore and naked lolis. Since Shaft usually go for comedic anime, this is a bit of a change from their usual work. I’m not that big a fan of Shaft but they completely won me over with Bakemonogatari and, judging by the animation quality in the trailer, are clearly rolling in the cash after the success of Senjogahara and co. Reviews of the manga are a bit mixed but the negative reviews seem to come from people who can’t stand gore. So not for the faint hearted this one. As if the decapitation in the trailer didn’t give that away already…

Brian: The show looks promising from trailer. Ask me if the anime is worth watching? Maybe but I won’t into that boat just yet. From what I can tell is that the Japanese are picking up the vampire fever. Frankly, Dance in the Vampire Bund reminds me a lot of Blood+ and I am not sure if there any promising character development like we saw from Blood+. I’m telling you up front: Blood+ was a good anime but I can’t say the same for this one just yet.

 Kaza: Decapitating peoples heads with just a bite to the neck… while wearing merely some panties and a bra? You know, I guess you just have to remind yourself that this is in fact SHAFT. I have to admit, this isn’t exactly my neck of the woods for anime. But if your into a bloody and gory Loli that kills people while naked, along with werewolfs and other fancy creatures, then this show isn’t half bad. Bakemonogatari did in fact become a great show, but like scamp said, there taking a turn away from there funny jokes. This doesn’t please me.

 Loba: Love it hate it, it’s all up to you. Me? Not my type.

 Blindability: I’ll probably watch the first few episodes and see how it goes…. I don’t mind gore so much but brutal, senseless killing doesn’t sit well with me. Neither does half naked underaged girls but I suppose if she’s a vampire, she’s not really underaged, is she?

Sora no Woto


Studio: A-1 Pictures

Additional Info: Original Anime project. First anime to air in the ‘Anime no Chikara’ timeslot that is devoted to airing anime original projects. 13 episodes long

Synopsis: The story takes place in an imaginary town Seize (the model cities are Cuenca and Alarcón Fortress in Spain). A long war brings a gradual decline to the world. People disappear from the town and fishes cease to exist in the sea. In this quiet world, five girls guard a fortress and play brass vividly.

Scamp: Yes yes, I know. K-ON joins the army. Not only does the plot seem to say that but you can clearly see the similarities in character designs and animation style. Whatever, moving along from that there’s the far more important point that this is an anime original project. Read that additional info I supplied for you. A project whose intent is to harvest anime original projects? How fantastic is that! Not galge adaptations or fanservice manga adaptations. Anime original projects who start off with no pre-airing fanbase and have to collect this fanbase by actually producing something worth watching. Mind you, ripping off K-ON is a rather obvious way of drawing in the otaku fanbase but I’m hey, a man can hope can’t he?

Brian: There might be more this than what you think. So what if the character design is similar to K-ON! It might be good to develop a good fanbase as Scamp said but it doesn’t mean the story would have the same theme to it. I’m keeping this one close. Moreover, it’s an original anime production. This means anything can happen for this one. Yup, I’m following one this one alright. Don’t think if I can blog about it though, given my final year works in university. I am hopeful that they bring Mio inside XD

 Kaza: Look, because this is original, I’m not too sure what to expect. But judging by their previous work I’m definitely going to check this one out. It seems like K-ON was a success and I do like the character designs. And being that this is an Anime original project, you can assure yourself that this is going to have a grand story-line… Or so it seems. Oh, and if you’re looking for adventure, action, drama, and the oh-so-cute K-ON chicks then this is the show for you.

 Loba: How interesting can guarding a fortress get? As interesting as watching someone blowing her horn (wahaha, not funny.)Maybe like what my fellow writers say, this might turn you on if you like the designs of K-ON implemented in this show…

 Blindability: My first thoughts based on the trailer is that the story has a really beautiful and fairly grand setting; something good is just bound to happen. Then K-ON!-esque girls walked in on the scene clutching to their trumpets and I thought, “huh“… The characters seem a little out of place but I think it’s worth watching just to see how great this story could be. And since it’s an Anime Original, there’ll be no manga spoilage here!

Hanamaru Kindergarden


Studio: Gainax

Additional Info: Based off manga. Airing 10th Jan

Synopsis: Anzu goes to a preschool with her friends, the shy Koume and the eccentric Hiiragi. Together they try to attract attention from their caretaker Tsuchida. However, he is clearly more interested in the pretty Yamamoto who supervises the class next door.

Scamp: Ummm…Gainax? The creators of Evangelion, FLCL and Gurren Lagann are making this? What makes it even weirder is the director is the same guy who directed FMA and Gundam 00. Yeah, I don’t really get it either. But hey, I’m certainly willing to try. It’s pretty much the closest we’ve got to a Yotsuba&! anime and if we’ve learned anything from that manga, it’s that the innocence of kids is downright hilarious. Just a quick warning to you folks. This is meant to be cute. If you start branding this as paedophile bait then you are not only completely wrong but probably a closet pedo yourself. Just saying.

 Brian: I don’t watch chibi-centric animes.

 Kaza: What?! I mean really, was it not Scamp that referred to the very well known term, “Gainaxing”? Is it not true that this means that your character or characters have a rather large rack? WTF are they doing a something like this? OK, maybe they got the ‘girl next door’ having a bit of what one might call a “rack”, but that’s is truly nothing compared to what they’ve done.

Loba: Gainax…hm? Ok, so usually notable studios will make us sit straight up and consider any of their releases seriously. Fine fine, so we have a kindergarten show with perhaps the kids narrating most of the story, therefore providing their perspective on the world around them. This could be interesting to those who wonder how kids think, reminds me of this Hollywood movie Baby Geniuses although it is unlikely the show would be similar. Go for it if you have nothing better to watch. Girls might like it. I mean girls might like you watching it. Or hate you. No risk no gain! @Blindability: How can you not like children if you gonna have kids in future =(

 Blindability: Does it reflect poorly on me that I don’t like children? I won’t condemn anyone who’s inextricably drawn to this though – kids do look cute from afar. Hard to believe that the makers of Evangelion have also produced this but it’s always worth a try to make something different, right?

Nodame Cantabile Final


Studio: JC Staff

Additional Info: Third and final series of Nodame Cantabile. Based off manga. Airing 14th Jan

Synopsis: The final instalment of Nodame Cantabile continues in Paris with Chiaki trying to achieve his ambition of becoming a conductor.

Scamp: The final Nodame. Ever. Gyabo. Unfortunately I heard the manga ended rather disappointingly but hey, at least it’s actually ending. So, for the last time, lets enjoy watching Nodame and Chiaki. I’m getting a bit teary-eyed just writing this 😦

Brian: Yup! The title’s not fooling you. This is indeed the final season of Nodame Cantabile; the sequel to the Paris arc of the manga. Nodame Paris Chapter was quite a let-down though there were several technical improvements, particularly on the CGI. As Scamp mentioned, the ending was a let-down as well. It was an ending but not the way many of the fans expected. I was warned about this but it don’t bother me to follow this series until the end.

 Kaza: Can’t say much about this one. Never really watched this. To tell you the truth, probably never going to, either.

 Loba: Definitely catching this, you should start from season 1 too! Second season might not have been as great as the first but the characters are still one of the more captivating ones as of recently. Did not read the manga so I wasn’t spoilt. lalala. Btw, did you guys know there was an OVA for season 2?

 Blindability: Like Kaza, I’ve never seen the other seasons of this. Ulike Kaza, I probably will. The animation doesn’t strike me as anything special, but apparently it’s a pretty good love story (quote: “the single best romance series in existence” Scamp: 2009) and I’m always up for a good story.


Studio: White Fox

Additional Info: Based off novel by Nision, who also wrote Bakemonogatari. Will be released in OVA format with one episode per month for the next 12 months

Synopsis: A swordfight story taking place in Edo era (17th – 19th century). Yasuri Shichika is the seventh head of the Kyotou school of Japanese sword martial arts and lives in Fushou Island with his sister Nanami. With the order from a female samurai general Togame, he sets out for a trip to collect the twelve treasured swords created by a legendary swordsmith Shikizaki Kiki.

Scamp: Kinda looks like Samurai Jack doesn’t it? For the record, I thought Samurai Jack spent far too much time basking in its artistry and was incapable of providing any form of entertainment. That shouldn’t happen here though. Nision has become a name to watch out for after Bakemonogatari so get ready for more of his weird and wonderful dialogue and wordplay that no non-japanese person understands in the slightest. Mind you I couldn’t find any reviews of the book so this could be less Bakemono and more Medaka Box (a manga by Nision that I’ve yet to hear anything but criticism for). White Fox are a bit of a nothing studio but sometimes these studios can cast off their harem image and create something worthwhile. It’s certainly worth checking out, although that month wait between episodes is going to hurt.

Brian: You have to agree with Scamp that it looks a lot like Samurai Jack. Nevertheless, interesting art style they are trying to pull off on this one. The synopsis alone provides a good basis of a story. Edo era never cease to fail grabbing my attention. Now asking me if I will follow this anime, it will probably take a few episodes for me to make up my mind on that one. Having said that, I will give Katanagatari a try.

 Kaza: I actually thought it was a bit convenient for this to be coming out monthly. Think about it. You watch one episode, and if you like it you can keep watching your other shows while watching this one on the side. Although, if you have a memory like mine (which is like that of a goldfish) I probably will have to recap on the last episode. It has a rather simple character design to it, so it doesn’t really turn me on.

 Loba: I say a game will be made for this, the character designs are a giveaway! Ok, to be very honest, this just reminds me of disney’s animation designs. Simple, cleancut and not as complicated as Japanese animations. Maybe I’m wrong since I never did watch Samurai Jack. On the positive side, it has swordfights! Might just try it out for the action scenes. Who knows, it may entertain just as Kurozuka did.

 Blindability: I would watch this just for the art but I think I’d enjoy it for more than just that. The story seems interesting enough and since there are so many period based stories out there, the difference in animation style might give Katanagatari an edge (and I realize that could be interpreted as a terrible, terrible pun; it was unintentional). Wait… I have to wait a MONTH between each episode?(found out later that each episode is an hour long. That should make the month wait less painful)

Seikon no Quasar

Quazar 2

Studio: Taki

Additional Info: Based off manga. 24 episodes long

Synopsis: In St. Mikhailov Academy, Oribe Mafuyu meets a silver haired boy called Alexander. He is a Qwaser, a being who can manipulate iron and draws his power from breast milk.

Scamp: Normally I skip reading the synopsis of an anime but I really recommend you read that one. Yup, this is the breast milk one. From what I can gather, the manga is very much like D-Gray Man meets Queens Blade. I actually took a peek at the manga (purely as reference material I might add) and by god is there a lot of nudity. I seriously doubt I’d ever enjoy this and the reviews of the manga are pretty darn shit but if you can stand or even like that sort of thing then your chances rest with how the studio adapts this. A lot of the time the plot of a fanservice manga can be lost in its anime adaptation (Rosario to Vampire and the unholy Gonzo adaptation) so the only way we can tell is to look at the studios past projects. Taki…this is their first anime.

Brian: To be fair, Seikon no Quasar have good character design. But here’s the catch. Panties, bouncing boobies, then breast milk? I know those are just fanservice but they must draw a line where it should stop. Definitely not for me.

 Kaza: That grim-reaper looking dude, at the end of the video, looked really badass! That might be the only reason why I’ll take a peek, but other than that, like Scamp said, the excessive use of fanservice really turns me off.

 Loba: Draw his power from…breast milk…WTF? Next.

 Blindability: I was reminded of D.Gray-Man too with that Allen Walker like main character but that’s about as far as it goes for me liking this anime. Fanservice involving excessive panty exposure and boobies aren’t my thing; maybe because I’ve got them, who knows. It’s a bit of a shame too because the characters as well as their weaponry do look well designed; they might even have some good action sequences. Too bad I’m not likely to watch them.

Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu

Baka test

Studio: Silver Link

Additional Info: Based off light novel series

Synopsis: The story centers around Akihisa Yoshii, the “baka” of the title. His academy rigidly divides up the student body into classes based on the results of tests. The prodigies are in the A class with reclining seats complete with air conditioning, but Akihisa is in F class, the lowest rung of the school ladder which is furnished only with low, decrepit tables and worn-out straw tatami mats. A girl named Mizuki Himeji is actually one of the smartest girls in Akihisa’s sophomore year, but she had a fever on test day and was pigeonholed into the F class. Besides Mizuki (who Akihisa secretly adores), the F class also has Yūji Sakamoto, the class president who has been Akihisa’s friend and partner-in-crime since the freshman year. The school happens to have developed experiments to summon fantasy creatures, and Akihisa decides to rally F class to take on the higher-tiered classes and seize their perks. The F class uses the summoned creatures in an all-out battle for school supremacy.

Scamp: The case for: A synopsis that sounds very reminiscent of Seto no Hanayome and a director whose worked on Shaft projects so knows a thing or two about wackiness in general. The case against: Shitty studio, generic character designs, below-average ratings of the source material, high potential of horribly generic and uninspired magical rom-com blobby thing. The verdict: Check it out but don’t get your hopes up.

Brian: The class division reminds me of my brother’s current high school and almost similar to my old high school. Sure brings back some good old memories. Indeed, Scamp is right not to keep your hopes up on this one but he’s just being too judgemental. This show is all about the classic anime clichés but that doesn’t mean that it’s not good. I can see some potential as being a pleasant anime to watch but don’t get me wrong. It is hardly a memorable show either. In all honesty, this anime is just like any other animes. So there’s no harm in watching them anyway.

 Kaza: Well, in my opinion… Proven Guilty! I’m sorry, but after watching an episode of Sora No Otoshimono I know how annoying it is to watching an anime full of chibies!

 Loba: Long synopsis, yawn. No idea what this is and have no interest to find out. (nice boat)

 Blindability: I’m in Loba’s boat – sailing away from this anime.

Hidamari Sketch x ☆☆☆


Studio: Shaft

Additional Info: Third season of Hidamari Sketch

Synopsis: Yuno has just begun school where she always wanted, Yamabuki High School. She moves out and into an apartment by herself in a complex called Hidamari-so, which is right in front of the school. There, she meets a classmate, Miyako, and a senior student, Hiro. Yuno’s days become hectic as she begins meeting the strange artists that live in her complex. Although she’s not used to her new life style, she begins to actualize her dream while being with these gentle friends.

Scamp: I haven’t watched the previous seasons yet so yeah, no interest.

Brian: There’s a third season?

 Kaza: Yeah, me neither.

 Loba: Who watches these anyway? Let us know in the comments.

 Blindability: I was going to say that this looks like a heart-warming anime – but then I choked and nearly died.(woah, none of us have seen Hidamari Sketch? Kinda failed as a team there guys…)

Harukanaru Toki ni Naka de 3


Studio: Yumeta Company

Additional Info: Third (?) season of the series. Based off manga

Synopsis: Akane Motomiya and her friends Tenma and Shimon are pulled by a demon into another world, where Akane becomes the Priestess of the Dragon God. The people of this world tell her that she is the only one who can stop the demons from taking over; meanwhile, the demons want to use her power for their own ends. Luckily, Akane has the Hachiyou, eight men with powers of their own who are sworn to protect the Dragon Priestess.

Scamp: Took me a while to find out what this show even was. It’s one of those terrible reverse-harem shows that only the craziest of fangirls ever watch. Which explains why I’ve never heard of it anyway.

Brian: Remember Fushigi no Yuugi? Ayashi no Ceres? Yes, this show will definitely attract those kind of fangirls (and guys, I’ve seen some of them). Want me to point out their common traits? One girl. Two pretty boys whom the girl likes equally. Then a bunch of guys who fall into the background of their love triangle. Add some legendary/celestial creatures and some magical battles, then you have this. Easy, they even have a manual book for this sort of anime.

 Loba: My hopes went up when I thought this sounds kinda familiar to twelve kingdoms until I read Scamp’s comments and reread the synopsis “Akane has the Hachiyou, eight men with powers of their own who are sworn to protect the Dragon Priestess.” Ok, next.

 Blindability: I was wondering why this looked familiar: Yumeta made the Angelique series too. …In my defense, I only watched the OAV and I didn’t enjoy it. This is very similar though: one girl and a bunch of men.

 Kaza: I treat these shounen harems as if they’re a bad case of leprosy. As you can see, I want nothing to do with leprosy, thank you. OK, maybe there’s one girl, but there’s still to many guys with rainbow-colored hair.

Okami Kakushi

Higurashi again

Studio: AIC

Additional Info: Based off PSP visual novel by Ryukishi07, the creator of Higurashi and Umineko

Synopsis: The story follows Hiroshi Kuzumi, a 16-year-old boy who has just moved to the seemingly serene village of Jogamachi. Nestled in the mountains far away from the city, the village is divided by a river that separates old Jogamachi from new Jogamachi. Young Hiroshi soon discovers that the village’s ancient as well as mysterious traditions and customs have been kept alive over the ages. Although a bit bewildered by the new environment, Hiroshi begins to settle into his new life. While he has never been the type to win any popularity contests, he quickly earns the affection of his classmates. That is with the exception of aloof class president, Nemuru Kushinada, whose only words to Hiroshi are a warning to stay away from old part of town. It is there that terror and mystery await him.

Scamp: The third installment in the Ryukishi07 franchise except this time Deen are no longer the studio adapting it. While I dare say many fans of the games are pretty darn happy about the, AIC, the studio now in charge, aren’t exactly the greatest studio in the world either. If you are a bit of a noob and don’t know much about Higurashi and Umineko, they are a weird combination of moe, mystery and murder. Very graphic murder. As for myself, I’ve yet to watch Higurashi but Umineko is mildly entertaining (if admittedly sometimes for the wrong reasons) so I’m willing to give this a shot.

Brian: Like their Hollywood counterparts, game-based animes tend to fail most of the time. More notably (to me) was Persona. The game is way much better. So better keep it that way.

 Kaza: I haven’t watch Higurashi and Umineko but I have watched and am watching Nyan Koi, which is also by AIC. And because I was so damn pleased with Nyan Koi I’ll take my chance and give this weird looking show a chance.

 Loba: The only two shows I remember being produced by AIC are: Dual! Parallel Trouble adventures and Pumpkin scissors. The previous wasn’t very original yet I enjoyed it, the latter was meh. Most likely skipping this.

 Blindability: I’ve never played the game so that shouldn’t spoil my outlook on this. I think this might actually be interesting depending on how the mystery and terror unravel. I’ll probably watch this and see how it goes.

Omamori Himari

onamori himari

Studio: ZEXCS

Additional Info: Based off light novel series

Synopsis: After losing his last relatives Amakawa Yuuto lives with his childhood friend Rinko, his only problem being his allergy to cats. Until on his 16th birthday a girl with a sword appears, telling him that he is the descendant of a family of demon slayers and that she is a spirit sworn to protect him. Bad luck for Yuuto, since she is a cat spirit and eager to get close to him… very close…

Scamp: Ah, here is where the true otaku-pandering rubbish begins with a Shana copycat complete with its own flat-chested tsundere bishojo. OK, not quite, apparently the light novels actually have a plot. But the website seems to be intent of highlighting the fanservice instead. Plenty of naked women with strategically placed cat-paws. Guess where this anime is heading? Plus I’ve yet to enjoy a single ZEXCS work so I’m certainly not holding out on this being any good.

Brian: We’ve seen enough of this anime genre and ZEXCS is no stranger on delivering such animes. Just having a mention about this sort of anime feels like I’m wasting my time already.

 Loba: I propose sending all fan service anime to the bottom with font size 4. Wait, the bottom seems long this season….

 Blindability: This makes me think of Wagaya no Oinarisama which was also produced by ZEXCS; I had actually hoped for a sequal because it was cute. Having said that, I probably should watch this for the chance that I might enjoy it… But I kind of don’t want to because it sounds stupid.

 Kaza: Look, I have nothing wrong with cats, or descendants of Demon Slayers, but I have to agree with Brian. After already dealing with a cat-alergic boy in my Nyan Koi reviews, I’ve had quite enough of cats, especially when they involve a cat-load of fanservice.

Ladies vs Butlers

Ladies vs Buttlers

Studio: XEBEC

Additional Info: Based off light novel series. Airing 5th Jan

Synopsis: Hino Akiharu lost his parents when he was small and was adopted into his uncle’s family. But he noticed his uncle is after the inheritance of his parents, so he decides to enter a boarding school, Hakureiryou high school. However his delinquent boy-like appearance frightens the girls, who make up the majority of the students. Being unable to get along with the classmates, Akiharu meets his childhood girlfriend Saikyou Tomomi.

Scamp: It’s been bugging me for a while now, but why and how can there be so many fanservice orientated light novel series? Fanservice manga and anime fair enough, you can ogle those lovely women to your heart’s content while ignoring the story. But Light Novels only have a picture every 10 pages so you clearly have to have some form of intelligent writing to fill in the gaps between pictures. And yet I’m seeing more fanservice orientated light-novel adaptations every season. I guess until now we’ve been getting the cream of the crop, like Baccano, FMP, Haruhi, Kino’s Journey, Shakugan no Shana etc. Now producers are having to dig into the darkest depths of Light Novels to find something. And they come up with crap like Ladies vs Butlers. *sigh*

Brian: There was a story of a butler and a bunch of ladies. The butler unfortunately had to bend his will to these ladies. Though this might be an orgy-in-the-making for some, the butler tries his best to maintain composure. But seeing the sight of these beautiful ladies but doing nothing about it found to be very difficult for the butler until one day, he decided to end his torment. By ending his torment, I mean, he decided to rape the girls. An unexpected turn of events however found himself to be on the opposite side of the court because it turns out that the ladies are far more hornier than he is. Hence, zombies ladies eating versus butler.

 Kaza: If you’re looking at the real synopsis that’s below the video, then you’re wasting your time. Yet, with just a glimpse of what Brian has explained and you quickly know your wasting your time just by reading the review for this anime.

 Loba: The world of anime has ended. Awaiting the bubble burst for fanservice shows.

 Blindability: I will definitely watch this… In Hell. If I die and go to Hell, this will be my eternal punishment.



Studio: ZEXCS

Additional Info: Based off manga

Synopsis: The story centers on Nayu, a middle school girl who shocks her schoolmates on the first day of school by wearing black lace panties. She likes this kind of underwear, and she tries to “spread the word on the merits of these kinds of underwear” via an underwear club with her schoolmates, who are worried about their bodies’ development and which underwear to choose.

Scamp: I didn’t actually do these series in order of how awesome I think they will be. This is just the order they appeared on Chartfags amazing chart. It just so happens that the best series, Durarara and Vampire Bund, appeared at the top and the worst, Chu Bra, appeared at the bottom. Do you think Chartfag is trying to tell us something? If you haven’t gotten the clue yet then look at the homepage. If you still haven’t gotten the clue from that then you are a bit of an idiot.

Brian: Have you not read the synopsis yet? Don’t you think the title was the first clue already? I mean, the first clue to drop this anime inconsiderably.

 Kaza: By Golly! … WTF

BTW… to Blindability… I guess you can’t join huh? Too bad, because Loba said that the girls will let himme join since he was I am wearing a G-string… Wohoo, Go Loba me!

@Blindability: That actually sounds wrong. @Kaza: Looks like you can!

(crappy fanservice anime + nearing end of preview = off-topic discussions)




Remember that any movie that airs in Japan we won’t see fansubbed until the dvd release a few months later. So look out for movies whose screening dates have long since past. There’s the second Gurren Lagann movie for one. Then there’s Summer Wars,the one by the same group who made Girl through Time, which I’ve talked about in the last 3 bloody season previews. There’s King of Thorn, which screened Oct 9th, although that’s got some pretty average reviews over on MAL. Looking forward just a little bit, the Macross Frontier movie is airing mid-November. Far more importantly, the two Eden movies are also coming up, the first in December and the second in January. Unlike most anime series spin off movies, these are a genuine direct continuation of the TV anime story and it will undoubtably be epic. Oh, and Haruhi will be disappearing for 150 minutes mid-Febuary. Not that anyone cares about that…

Loba: You forgot the Gundam 00 movie sequel.

Brian: And here’s the trailer. Gundam fans, go fap yourselves!

Tieria managed to materialize his own body, Allelujah is back in Gundam business, and Gundams are updated heavily. A notable mention is 00 now has a GN Fangs-like system. Now, continue fapping.


Final Roundup


Shitty chart is kinda shitty. This is what happens when the trial period on your photoshop runs out and you’re too lazy to get a new one so you end up using MS paint instead.

Other Worthwhile Season Previews

Chartfags amazing chart, Metanorn, Seinime and the Knights of the Round blogsphere…or something

I’ll update this whenever I come across a preview that’s actually had some research put into it.

And that’s just about it folks. So tell us, what are you planning on watching?

    Wow, is it this time of the year already?

    Winter looks pretty exciting. I’m glad we have a couple good action shows as well… although will we ever see a mecha anime again?

    My list looks pretty much identical to Scamp’s except you can replace the Ryukishi07 ? with a check mark. It’ll be interesting to see how well AIC does with the adaptation. I’ve been thoroughly impressed by their animation work on Nyan Koi and Sora no Otoshimono.

    Do vote on the poll. Would love to see your feedback here. Also, the poll is limited to 2 votes each try. Each try, I mean, each IP. Yes, it’s a unique vote!

    None of you guys have seen Hidamari Sketch? Way to blogfail. The OEG will be around shortly to revoke your otaku licenses.

    But nice write up guys, and real early too. A little tl;dr right now, but I’ll work through it this week eventually.

  5. 27 November 2009 at 8:38 pm

    wow, so many colorful anime next season. Well, I’ve been planning to reduce the number of new anime to follow each season(It’s quite exhausting to watch too many series simultaneously) and this seems like a good chance. For me only, Durarara, Vampire,Sorano Woto and probably Nodame 3 looks interesting.

    …I think I’m the only one who can’t see K-ON! in Sora no Woto.
    Or maybe I just don’t want to.

    Either way, looking forward to Sora no Woto, Ookamikakushi, and a bunch of movies.

    By the way, Ookamikakushi is for the PSP.

    I bet you were pretty miffed you could only vote for two in that poll


    The lack of mecha has left me in DESP…wait don’t panic folks. Next season we have Gundam Unicorn and Broken Blade, both pretty awesome looking mecha series. So we mecha fans just have to wait it out another season

    I haven’t seen Higurashi yet (I know, I’m sorry) but neither Umineko or any of AIC’s previous works have exaclty blown me away as of yet. Hence I’m interested but sceptical


    Real early? My friend, for the last 3 seasons Bokutachi has gotten the season preview up on the 24th. We are the very definition of punctual.


    I’ve gotten the ‘watching series simultaniously’ thing down to a tee. The problem now is I find it really difficult to marathon older series anymore. Apart from a brief period in the summer where I watched Claymore, Trigun, Dennou Coil and Ghost in the Shell, I’ve really failed miserably at watching older series. Once you get used to weekly watching, it’s hard to go back


    I have this rare mental problem where I can’t distinguish the difference between 3 and P. I believe they’re going to have an episode on it in Trapeze

    fascinating…no one’s watching the pedo- kindergarten show.

  9. 27 November 2009 at 8:41 pm

    Wow, this post must’ve taken a lot of work. Thanks for putting it together for us.

    And actually… I’m one of those fangirls who likes the male-harem shows and I’ve been meaning to watch Harukanaru at some point, but now it’s in its third season, and I have so many other animes to watch, and it’ll just have to wait. Just want to make the point that, yes, there ARE fans who will watch shows with 8 pretty men (because… there are 8 pretty men in it).

    I voted for Durara(rararara…). Looks interesting.

    When you get a chance, you really should watch Higurashi. It’ll give you nightmares, but I can tell you that you’ve never seen an anime like it. O_O

    No, no: I WILL be watching Nodame Cantabile. I just have a lot of catching up to do in covering the first two seasons before this one starts.

  11. 27 November 2009 at 8:42 pm

    Durarara definitely looks badass, and I’m looking forward to Dance in the Vampire Bund as well. The final season of Nodame is also giving me the kick in the ass I need to finally watch the first two seasons of that series. Katanagatari looks pretty sweet, too. Hopefully the series will look pretty badass since it’s a monthly OVA.

    I’m keeping an open mind regarding Sora no Woto, and the absurdity behind Hanamaru Kindergarten’s development is just intriguing enough for me to at least try it out. (I was actually at Anime Expo when Seiji Mizushima unveiled the trailer for the anime. The lead in was clips from FMA, Gundam 00 and Shikabane Hime. The reaction when the audience got a cute kids series instead of a kickass action series was hilarious.) The Ryukishi07 connection might be enough for me to try out Okami Kakushi.

    heheh… ok. No hurt done there, like I said before, peoples tastes can be different. But I guess it would fit a fangirl like yourself to want to watch it, huh? I mean, wouldn’t it be a little weird for me to be interested in it?

  15. 15 kagura89
    27 November 2009 at 8:54 pm

    Must Watch Instantly:

    +Durarara(Hell yeah kickass action & Baccano! author)
    +Katanagatari(Nision another work so count me in!)

    Will Watch If First Episode is Satisfying:

    +Dance of Vampire Bund ( Vamp Loli running naked & killing off people,it just so wrong!)
    +Sora-no-wo-to (LOL K-ON joins the army XD)
    +Ookamikakushi (Enough with mindfuck situation in Umineko)
    +Hanamaru Kindergarten (I’m curios what the hell is Seiji Mizushima thinking with this..)

    Not Watching:

    +Seikon no Qwaser (Good chara design but full of shit fanservice)
    +Baka test no Shoukanjuu (Plot doesn’t sound convincing + it had traps in it…DO NOT WANT)
    +Omamori Himari (Why a worthless boy gets a lot’s of pretty girls?)
    +Ladies vs Butlers (Same ol’ harem+ecchi anime & all harem stereotype will be included)
    +Chu-Bra! (This is a joke right guys?)

    I’ve totally fallen out of the habit of watching anime in any other form other than weekly airings. There’s a mountain of anime I’ve been meaning to watch, including Higurashi, but I just can’t get around to it. Christmas break maybe…


    I’ve seen the youtube video of that screening! I can just imagine what it must have been like for mecha fanboys. With all the lack of mecha in recent seasons you see what clearly looks like it’s an announcement for a new action series and poom! you get little kids. Talk about salt in the wounds


    Yeah I’ve never quite gotten the obsession some people have over traps. Well, apart from the Moyashimon trap. But Moyashimon can make anything awesome

    27 November 2009 at 8:56 pm

    Same thing than Scamp but I’m gonna try the Breast thing… I hate fanservices thing but the guy look badass and the weapon too so just for that I’m gonna try 1 episode or 2.

    For the rest it’s all crap so not gonna watch it.

    For Nodame Cantabile I loved the Drama but never seen or read the manga so I’m not gonna see the final season xD

    For the Pedo one I will try it cause I like to laugh and I think in this one I will laugh. But hey, just to say the show remind me of a manga I read (like very weird one) It’s like a teacher come to a school to replace another teacher and make friends with 3 girls about 8-11 years old(the girls are best friends) and one of them make funny things to him to love her and it have some weird scene but anyway I forgot the name so I can’t continue it anymore. It was very funny but weird because it was classified like a hentai Oo but there was nothing like this in it.

  18. 27 November 2009 at 8:57 pm

    Sure, no offense meant, none taken. I’m actually wishing I were watching Harukanaru now instead of Miracle Train, the truly insipid male harem anime I’m currently watching. And I’m only still watching it because it’s a 12-episode series, so the end is in sight.

  19. 19 kadian1364
    27 November 2009 at 8:57 pm

    For sure I’ll be watching Hidamari Sketch, Nodame Final, and Gainax Kindergarden. (2 known quantities and a seeming Potemayo style coMOEdy by Gainax)

    I’ll check out Durarara, K-On Enlists, and Sword Story. Somewhat interesting and novel concepts.

    I’ll look at other shows if they get lots of hype, but that’s plenty for one season as it is.

  20. 27 November 2009 at 8:58 pm

    I’m still not quite sure what I’ll watch, but there’s definitely enough to chose from. I’m definitely going for Vampire Bund and Nodame.

  21. 27 November 2009 at 9:10 pm

    Right, I’ve moved all the comments from the older over here by the rather time-consuming method of masquerading as each of you and ctrl+c ctrl+v each comment. Except for kyon which for some reason or another ended up with my avatar picture. Dunno why that happenned.

    Anywho, carry on commenting

    Hmmm… For this season, I guess the one I’m looking forward to the most would be Baka to Tesuto to Shokanjuu. I’ve read the translated versions by Baka-Tsuki, and I find it really interesting. I particularly don’t mind the chibi (Sora no Otoshimono’s chibi are cute, except for Tomoki). I find the humour good, and strategies used quite interesting as well. No to mention the elements used in this anime/LN is relatively fresher IMO. I find the idea of using tests and results to call forth summons funny.

    Too bad Winter’s going to be pretty dry. Thank goodness I’ve stocked up lots of stalled anime to pull me through winter.

    As for the rest, I won’t be deciding yet, until I watch about 3 episode for each series. And obviously I won’t be watching all of them. I spot a few that doesn’t suit my tastes already.

  23. 28 November 2009 at 5:52 pm

    scamp, the old one got bumped to the top of google’s search again.

  24. 28 November 2009 at 6:53 pm


    I know, fucking thing did that intentionally to piss me off. Thats what I get for over-reacting when google acts up. Ah well, I’ll just leave the two of them up.


    It certainly is plenty for one season. A small selection of anime producing quite a selection to choose from. Total oppisite from the current season. Yes even I, the guy who constantly tries to claim that the latest season is not crap, will admit that this autumn is dreadful.


    Not to your taste? No breast milk for you eh? Yeah I’ve heard some good stuff about Baka to Test. Then again I also heard some good reviews of the Kampfer novels so…

  27. 29 November 2009 at 8:31 pm

    *crying profusely inside* i soooo wish I had 26 comments on my winter preview 😦 lol, anyways, yeah dance in the Vampire bund, drrr, and one other look pretty cool, but katanagatari is going to have the format be 1-hour long episodes every month. Basically…think of samurai Jack (most should know what I’m talking about) all over again….yeaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Moving on, the others look like crap.

    OH!!! how could I forget!!!! SEIKON NO QWAZER!!! riight 🙂 you know there’s an uncensored trailer right? Well pop on by to my place and check it out. When I kept hearing about breastfeeding anime this and that, I wondered if I was going crazy…because i never saw anything that stood out from the usual fanservice. When I heard there was an uncensored qwazer of srigmata vid, I jumped. Took me over an hour to find it, but I finally did & lemme tell you, it’s entertaining 🙂

    Hmmm last round of business, ah, Chu-Bra. No why does everyone keep bagging on chu-bra..??? Like almost everyone??? I really think this show has a lot of promise and lemme say, I’m a pretty harsh critic. I mean panties….lingerie…and them making jokes about it? Pure gold. However, as I’ve said Many times earlier, the only thing I don’t like is how They’re in junior high, or middle school or whatever. Like come on….way to make everyone a fucking pedophile…no wonder people stereotypically think people who like anime are weird – because of shit like
    this. Anyways, I’ll stick around as long as I can on that one.

    Overall, I loved the thoroughness of your preview and keep up the good work guys 🙂 I’ll definitely be stopping by soon!

    *desperately wants Yotsuba& anime*


    It took years of refining to get the art of the season preview down. We might even have had more comments if google didn’t keep changing it’s mind as to whether this post exists or not. Mind you a lot of these comments are from Bokutachi authors which don’t really count…

    Fanservice anime = no interest. When I began watching anime I did watch a lot of those ecchi shows but lost interest pretty darn quickly. Now I’ve turned elitist and like weird shit like Kaiba and Trapeze. Although my fanservice phase did lead to me watching Chobits and it was worth shifting through the piles of craptitude for that series alone.

    Important note to remember: It’s not drrr, it’s DRRR!!

    Sadly, I can’t say there is much I’m looking forward to this season. Here are some I have interest in:
    Dance in the Vampire Bund
    Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu
    Omamori Himari
    Ladies vs Butlers
    Sora no Woto
    Last season I think there was more anime that I was definately going to watch as opposed to this season where I don’t know if I want to watch some of the anime coming out. BUt I’m excited about Dance in the Vampire Bund if anything.And I’m intersted in Ladies Versus Butlers simply because it looks as though the Character designer will be the one from Kanokon, and I’m interested in seeing if the fanservice will be just as crazy…

    *wipes imaginary sweat off forehead*

    Hey scamp, as a Crunchroll subscriber I bet you must be taking advantage on the expansion they did on there music catalog huh. Or at least that’s what ANN told me. Seems pretty cool

    OH! something related to Saikon No Quasar…
    DUDE! so you said you checked out the manga for informational purposes right? And you noticed they blatant nudity right? Well, I got a couple things to say about that. First off, yea there’s skin but I can’t consider it fan-service though. Only because there is a reason for that actually fits into the story. Second, have you read through to at least chapter 2? Dude! This shit gets INTENSE! Well, at least when you step up to like ch.3 or 4. The first ones you’re still kinda not knowing what to expect. Third, this things got me hooked! Why, you ask? Why the hell would I be interested in a show that the story consists of a breast-feeding hero? Well my dear friend, after reading through some of its pages in manga I found myself thinking, “Kaza, stop! You must wait until the show comes out and you can’t spoil it!”

    Yea, and guess what, it’s like a mix of Bad-ass villans along with a class of chemistry in each episode. Yea! I know right! WTF???

    Solid Preview guys and you all won me by how much you think fanservice is ultimate SHIT I’m with you. I’m going to give Dance in the Vampire Bund a look because I’m a big fan of Hellsing and all that gore looks perfect. Also, since my ass is done with both Nodame series might as well finish the last one.

    17 December 2009 at 3:28 pm

    Great round-up and showing of the upcoming season. Love the layout and opinions on each show.

    Quasar had me until “breastmilk”. I’m sure several people were the opposite but I’ll catch the first few episodes to see if I can get past the fan-service. Shit like this season’s Kampfer and Queen’s Blade are really starting to get annoying.

    I’m hoping Vampire Bund will be as good as the manga which is pretty good for the “Hime/protector” schtick they got going. Definitely dark and bloody with some funny shit thrown in; hell, there’s even a love story.

    I’ve got a feeling “K-ON Army” is going to be slow paced and waaay too “slice-of-lifey”. *sigh* going to watch it anyway ‘cos I love the style.

    And another season of Hidamari Sketch? Meh, I’ve seen them all and most of the time it’s painful to get through how slow and boring it is. The only reason to hang on is for the yuri-pairing of Sae and Hiro (if you’re into that *cough*).

    Durarara is going to be a (semi) complete blow. Well maybe it will be better than Blacksmith.

  39. 21 December 2009 at 9:46 am

    Bleh. Order of Interest:
    1. Dance in the Vampire Bund ( since I read the manga, it was good … I hope they don’t emphasis the loli)
    2.Durarara!! (Not that into shounen but looks like a good one)
    3.Okami Kakushi. (Higurashi and Umineko were entertaining. Especially the first few eps)
    4.Nodame Cantible (will get to it if I ever finish first season…)
    5.Harukanaru Toki ni Naka de 3 (complete fushigi yuugi ripoff but the first season wasn’t bad….)
    6. Sora no Woto (… hmm)
    7.Quaser (manga was good enough … -tries to ignore panty shots and…yeah-)
    Everything else was bleh for me.

    Woa, an Anime blog I hadn’t been around yet. Cool. And it has the season preview, too. Might as well comment.
    Well, I’m clearly looking forward to Durarara! and Ookami Kakushi. I haven’t watched Baccano! as of yet, but it is one of my main series to enjoy this summer (hey, Chile, the sun shines bright)/winter weekends, and DRRR! looks promising. Ookami I can’t say much, but that game was quite… interesting for the rainy days of sickness. Besides, after Higurashi and the two episodes I watched of Umineko… Katanagatari is 12 episodes long in monthly releases. That’s cool, and I shall follow it. If schedule allows. Also, nice designs you have there.
    Scare myself away. I’m actually giving Qwasar a try. As well as Soranowoto or however you divide those syllabes. K-ON was an anime I didn’t watch, but I’m willing to see if this is worth it. Same goes to Dance in the Vampire Bund (is that a word?). Don’t watch vampire anime much, but hey, it is Shaft.
    I tried Harukanaru… all the way back when Hachiyo Sho came out… and no thanks. And you may scream blasphemy, but I’m letting go Nodame Cantebile too.
    Oh, I see movies there. Haruhi and Gundam 00 are a must watch in my case. Ibara no Ou should hurry and get subbed too.
    And that’s all of today, good luck this season, Bloggers.

    24 December 2009 at 7:48 pm

    A couple of comments on the few that I read:

    Yes, SHAFT is known more for their comedies but they also did an excellent adaptation of the drama ef – A Fairy Tale of the Two. It does appear that this is the first time SHAFT and Shinbou are teaming up to do a non-comedy though. Shinbou has directed the first season of Nanoha and has also directed Petite Cosette so it’s not something new to him either.

    I’ve read a bit of Baka Test and it’s entertaining. Those character models are pretty damn generic though. The main character looks exactly like he main kid from Reborn with less spikes in his hair. I can see the adaptation going either way as far as quality is concerned. If there’s any reason to dislike the show, it’s the cliches. The main character is your standard idiot. He likes the really smart girl who has little common sense and can’t cook. He’s also liked by a tsundere. There is an epic level trap in the show though. The concept is also very unique and can be interesting if done right. Don’t hate it for the chibis though. They’re only summons who fight in place of the characters. They don’t interact with anybody and don’t get much screen time other than to slash another chibi.

    A group of 5 bloggers and none watch Hidamari? Wow.

    Anyways, I’m looking forward to Durarara, Hidamari, and Baka Test (which I admit has a good chance of disappointment). I’ll definitely watch Nodame for completion’s sake. Vampire Bund, Sora no Woto, loli Kindergarten, Katanagatari, Okami Kakushi, Ladies vs Butlers, and ChuBra will get the old “watch one or two episodes before deciding whether to go further” treatment.

    i have to say this. i was actaully looking forward to seikon no qwaser after just seeing the artwork, but then it just had to be … breastmilk?! i mean wtf??? thats just too much, i could get by if it was a kiss or blood or whatnot. just WHY breastmilk? but i still feel like i should give it a try just to see how it is ¬__¬

    and dance in the vampire bound is actually a pretty good manga so i’ll be checking that out ;3
    durara just looks plain awesome and so i’ll watch it, and i’ll probably see hidamari sketch just becouse i’ve seen the other seasons, its like a good anime to watch when youre really bored

    im only dissapointed that there isn’t that many new animes this season Ó3Ò

  43. 44 Shifter Shaman
    6 January 2010 at 3:06 pm

    Dura looks good, and loved the first season of Nodame (the second was okay, it just didn’t have the same originality, and they abandoned the old characters without developing the new ones in the same way). ‘K-ON enlists’ looks intriguing (I actually liked K-ON, as it was cute, if you ignored the teacher and a few other annoying aspects).

    As for dance of the vampire? I’ll watch it when I have nothing else to do, but too many naked/scantily clad women that I feel that that’s all it will be.

    WAY too many fan-service anime this season, Breast-Milk’s story actually looked okay, until you went back over and realized you didn’t just make it up.

    The kindergarten one might be cute, if it actually has a semi-serious (even silly, just not fan service :P) plot. For those talking about it being a pedo show, it doesn’t necessarily need to be. Young children often think they’re in love with, or want to marry an adult. They see grown ups marrying the closest person of the opposite sex, and they think, “Hey, this guy/girl is cool, why don’t I marry him/her?” My little sister had a friend she was going to marry in kindergarten, where do they come up with ideas? Adults. I think it’s a little early to prejudge and bash this show, but going by the rest of them…. I’ll probably be proven wrong.

  44. 8 January 2010 at 6:57 pm

    Well done on a fan-service-tastic season preview guide guys. (see there! I tried to make topical pun while congratulating you guys, but failed horribly).

    I really enjoyed your views and opinions on the new shows, I found Brian & Blindability both very funny & generally agreed with them and Scamp the most.

    I totally agree with you guys about how all these fanservice hogwashies are quietly trashing the industry… they don’t even equip them with swords anymore *momentarily drifts away in a Queen’s Blade flashback montage*.

    Btw, I have linked to your guys preview on my universities anime forum.
