Fall season, 2008

Having just glimpsed through two previews, this season seems stronger than what's finishing up now (currently, it's only Code Geass R2, Macross Frontier and Natsume Yuujinchou for me). So, stuff of interest...
  • Kusoshitsuji (the manga research club at my school really likes this manga. Sakamoto Maaya and Ono Daisuke are the mains, with Fukuyama Jun and Paku Romi also appearing)
  • Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae (I've seen the first two, so I'll be continuing. The main cast is returning.)
  • Gundam 00 part 2 ('nuff said)
  • Nodame Cantabile Paris-hen (same cast, with a couple of additions. I'm actually more interested in this part of the story than in the previous. The only worry is if the anime ends before the manga does...though Ninomiya-sensei has indicated that she's almost finished!)

and the OVAs:
and the maybes...
  • Hakushaku to Yousei (Midorikawa Hikaru, Mizuku Nana, Sugita Tomakazu...a lot of others, including Miyano Mamoru and Kamiya Hiroshi)
  • ga-rei-zero (nice-looking character design, though with what seems to be a premise aimed at teenagers, maybe)
  • Mouryou no Hako (great cast, including Morikawa Toshiyuki and Kiuchi Hidenobu, but the plot could be a hit-and-miss)
  • Vampire Knight Guilty (I do want to watch this, if only for a couple of really cool side-characters...but that'll mean I have to go back and finish season 1...(^_^;), heh...)
  • Tytania (sounds interesting...)



Full list (for non-OVAs) is here.

ん...何か忘れた気がする...

Oh, and lastly for today, I just watched Vexille, a CG film dating from last year. It's got an interesting (if simple and not fully-explored) premise, along with a supposed commentary on Japanese nationalism, and some excellent action scenes. Now if only they could improve on the facial expressions, which seem flatter than ever.
