Fall 2009 Series Picks

Hello everyone. Well its time this year to tell you the shows that me and Flare will be covering this season. As always, this post isn’t to inform what’s all out there but simply to share which shows we will be blogging and following. This could mean episode by episode, or more editorial style posts that follow arcs and different developments. Without further ado, here are the shows we will be following and a bit about why we picked them.

Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu ~Purezza~
I loved the first season of this show. The only problem I had with it was that it ended to suddenly, which is to be expected, was to be expected when it comes from some other source. Getting a second season is nothing but great, as this show has some very fun characters, a charming and sweet love story between the two main characters, and some very good comedy to it. I can’t wait to see more of this show and only hope they continue to make anime seasons for it, or give it a good anime end.

Inuyasha – The Final Act

I have to admit that I was absolutely floored by the news of this. It’s not something I would have expected in a million years. The show actually became this perfect example of a show that just ends abruptly due to source material having not finished. Sure there are plenty of other series that do this too, but this was just the perfect example. They didn’t make anew ending, they didn’t end on some small arc, they just up and stopped. This show seems like it’s just a classic and there is no way I would miss it, no matter how mainstream and over commercialized it has become. Plus, the boomerang girl is hot. What’s her name again…Sango? Why do I know that name after so many years having passed since I’ve seen it…

Koihime +Musou – Otome Ryouran Sangokushi Engi

I was quite surprised by the news of this show getting another season. It didn’t seem like something that was popular enough or really honestly good enough to get another season. It was still fun to watch even if it wasn’t the best, it had some interesting characters in it and sometimes it’s fun to watch a semi-bad show just for the entertainment aspect. Since I stuck with it for the first season I have to give this one another go.

Sasameki Koto

It’s yuri, what more reason do I need?

Kampfer

I don’t have any delusions of this being very good. I don’t expect it to have some epic story and in depth character development to it, but as I’ve said before sometimes you just want to watch something because it’s simply fun to do so, it doesn’t have to be extraordinary for it to e fun to watch, which is precisely why I wish to watch this series. It seems like it will be very stupid and ridiculous while also being fun to watch.

I picked this mainly because I was looking for something a bit different then what I already had. It seemed semi interesting, and although not in the style or genre I most watch, it’s not really one that I would hate, or so I hope. Plus, pretty all the other shows I was watching from last season are ending, so I needed something and figured what the hell.

To Aru Kagaku no Railgun

It’s not just because I covered Index that I’m interested in blogging this series. I honestly felt Mikoto was the best character and getting to watch her in her own series will be great. I did stumble onto the manga for this one so again I have a pretty good idea what to expect. Still it will just be nice to see Mikoto much more often and watch her deal with the situations she has to face. Besides should be fun to watch her interactions with Kuroko. Since there should be some fun things happening each episode I’m more than happy to cover each episode.

Fairy Tail

Well having read the manga I was pretty excited to hear about the anime coming out for it. I do like my action series so this will be a good one to add to my blogging list. Besides do like fitting in some elemental fighting into the series I’m watching so Natsu should be a good lead to follow. It just seems like a good option for a series with some adventure. I’m curious to find out whether this will go a normal length like 26 or join some of the longer running series. Anyways the promo looked good so I’m pretty confident this will be done well.

Asura Cryin’ 2

It does seem right to continue where I left off with this series. There were some surprises in how they dealt with things and it did fail to answer some questions that I had. So it’s good that the sequel is coming out so we can hopefully get those answers. Besides they left on somewhat of a cliffhanger so I’ll be glad to get right back into this. Misao really was the star for me in this show so hopefully she continues to shine in the sequel.

    Well it’s one that I’ll probably be watching. Like always there is always a chance that another show gets picked up if it really stands out. This is looking to be a good season with quite a few interesting shows.
