A very fun manga now becomes a Gainax (no less) anime. I hope they keep the silly jokes from the original and don't add too much angst.

A very cute manga, with naive romance fun. Again, I hope the anime does a good rendition of the stories on the manga.

I'd really like to watch Anzai Nobuyuki's MÄR and Basilisk Koga Ninpouchou.

hahaha...I won't watch any anime that includes the word 'goshujinsama' more than once per episode anymore. This one has it in the title. lordy.

Almost as creepy as my friend who bought two Pia Carrot waitress outfits, and is concerned because 'if he ever gets a girlfriend', the sizes are slightly different in the shoulders and bust, and she wouldn't be able to fit into both.

Ah, my friends are great.

.......so is he selling the second one then?


*ahem* Back on topic, based on the manga material, seems right up Gainax's alley. Though having rewatched Gunbuster, I missed the days when Gainax was known for more than super-fluid animation and fanservice. Mmmm, maybe I shouldn't use the words "fluid" and "fanservice" in the same sentence...

If I could only choose one anime to watch this season, it would be Futakoi Alternative
The piano / violin piece that plays during the trailer is so nice


Yes, Glass Mask and the two maid anime are on my list too. Watched Emma already and it's pretty good!
And watch Fushigiboshi no Futago Hime if you want to experience your body melting with sugar.

Another bad season for me, I guess. I tried reading "Goshujinsama", but it just seemed tired and pointless to me. I got pulled in by the cute art, but it doesn't have anything unique, interesting or meaningful to offer. Sure, it has cute and funny "charm"...and sure, it has boobs, but so does EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE WORLD.

That being said, I didn't think it was bad, I just thought it was uninteresting. Maybe the anime will improve on it.

I doubt it. There's only so much you can do with the 'cute girls that would do anything for befuddled nerdy guy that never capitalizes on it' formula.

This manga is more like "cute girls and their alligator mascot beat up the perverted guy that tries to get hentai photos of them and strange contests are held"

You have GOT to be kidding me. I hope Goddannar will follow this tradition!

Spring season doesn't seem to have much to interest me either, with the exception of Tsubasa Chronicle - but then again, it's Clamp, so the mainstream fans will be all over this one. I just wonder if anyone who hasn't read Clamp's previous works before will enjoy it, since half the fun in the series is seeing who makes a cameo.

I only saw the first episode. I'm not a huge fan of the animation style and quality, and the story and scenes are STRAIGHT out of the game. I'd only recommend it if you want a refresher in the storyline before playing Xenosaga 2 or something.

Mermaid Melody, while clever in adding more and more words beginning with the letter "p", loses out because they resorted to just making the name longer by adding more pichis to it.

Oh, I'm not into playing RPGs much so I'd watch Xenosaga instead of playing the game letting me learn more about another Namco franchise and getting me ready for Namco x Capcom. Heh heh heh. Anyway, thanks!

Didn't like Xenosaga due to the uninteresting story and not so good art. Not sure if it's gotten better now.

Peach Girl is average, but has its entertaining moments. Probably going to drop in because of all the new series starting.
Oh, and Touji's an idiot.

So far:

Ichigo 100%
Was average I guess? Maybe never reading the manga helps. Don't think too much of it yet.

Erementar Gerad
Seems interesting so far, and lots of cute girls to look at. There's going to be some PS2 game based on this series as well right?

Sousei no Aquarion
Crazier than Godannar! Will most probably follow.

Can't seem to get hold of any Glass no Kamen raws. Iggy, you watched this yet?

It was shown a few hours ago, wait & see.
There were a few changes, but Maya was called 恐ろしい子 several times during the first episode. Good, good. A little deception for Ayumi, but nothing terrible.

Calling Maya 恐ろしい子 is like saying magma is warm.

Trinity Blood seems vaguely interesting, but it's kind of hard to tell because a summary of any vampire story usually sounds exactly the same as any other vampire story. Their quality is based almost entirely on execution.

I'll probably watch five or six episodes, like it intensely, and then find out that its fansub group has either quietly dropped it or is still claiming to be "working on it" six months after their last release. Instead, they will have moved on to more interesting, inspired works of fansubbing, like trying to beat the other sixteen Naruto fansub groups to see who can speedsub the fastest, and then subsequently release the fastest v2 and v3 corrections so that you can actually read the goddamn thing. Later on, they'll pick another quality anime at random and start subbing it, but they'll start from episode 1 when another high quality group is already on episode 28. After finding out that the original group has become bored with it and wants to move on to something else, they'll decide that they'd like to do the same, because having only one group subbing a semi-popular anime with a large cult following is just, y'know... lonely.

I hate to bitch about things that are free, but doesn't everyone else remember the days when fansubbing was about fansubbing anime, instead of slowly climbing up the social ladder of an insane fandom obsessed with doing a pathetic job in the most stylish way possible? Apparently something was terribly, terribly wrong with those days, but I'm just not cool enough to know what it was. Maybe when I have a higher "rep" in the "community", I'll understand.
