Fall Season ’08 Stuff

Alright, so I seem to have not upheld my promise of making that third post on Spring season stuff. God, I am an unreliable piece of shit. Anyway, here’s the tentative list of shows I’ll end up watching at least the first episode of, as well as the rest of the stuff. Plus comments. The contents of this will be based on the rather useful post on THAT Anime blog. Many thanks go to them for having to research all that.


The visual novel was awesome, incorporating psychological horror-ish elements, gore, delusions (rofl), and science fiction (can anyone say quantum physics?). Hopefully the anime will be more of the same, though the staff is… somewhat disenheartening.
Hakushaku to Yousei
Watching just because it has Tomokazu Sugita.
Tales of the Abyss
My brother played this, and I ended up watching him when I was bored. Tear is love.
Gundam Balls
I watched this before, might as well keep going.
I’ve heard praise for the source material – a manga I believe – so I’ll be watching out of curiosity.
“Crazy Shrine Maidens.” Awesome.
Kemeko Deluxe
I read a bit of the manga (like, 2 chapters) and it wasn’t all that bad.
Yozakura Quartet
The manga’s awesome cover got to me, and I am watching this just to see how nice it might turn out.
Clannad ~After Story~
How could anyone not watch this?
Shikabane Hime: Aka
Gainax + Zombies = Awesome
Funny how my train of thought works: figure of Taiga comes out > I like the figure > Anime comes out > I am interested.

I dunno

To Aru Majutsu no Index
Seems familiar, but not quite.
Nodame Cantabile Paris-hen
Never finished the first season – ought to, but probably won’t.
Kurogane no Linebarrel
Gonzo again? Well, it seems to be their all-out show now, so I ought to do them the honor, at least.
Kinda meh premise, but whatever.
Macademi Wasshoi!
Yay lolis.
Akane Iro ni Somaru Saka
I remember seeing a bunch of CGs and stuff related to this, so my interest’s been piqued – at least on the story.
ef ~a tale of melodies.~
ef. I seriously need to watch the first season – it’s apparently fucking awesome.
Casshern SINS
Interesting premise, but kinda old-school-ish.
Kyou no Go no Ni
The humor was unintentionally sexual, and unintentionally funny.
Seems to be action. Plus I love anachronistic characters.

Do not watch

Battle Spirits blahblahblah
kids show.
not really into space battle stuff
Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae
never saw the first two seasons. never will.
okay, this is just LOL
Vampire Knight Guilty
quit the first season.
uh, what.
Rosario to Vampire CAPU2
more fanservice from Gonzo. except this time it’s not mecha-musume lolis with guns in military uniforms and kemonomimi, so no thanks.
Michiko To Hatchin
eh, not really interesting for me.
Skip Beat
not into full-shoujo stuff.
yay for shota.
Bihada Ichizoku
yeah, uh, skin beauty competitions. seriously.
Hokuto no Ken yaddayaddayadda
Tentai Senshi Sunred
parody anime can be parody anime for all I care, but this just looks… awful. still a better choice than most others here though.
Junjou Romantica 2
non-shota version of hot dickings.
One Outs
baseball. meh.

Edit: Somehow, I have totally missed the typo on the title for days and days until Yamcha pointed it out. It’s fixed now, though links might get broken.

    I do hope you give Skip Beat a second chance because it’s not like the rest of the shoujo series out there. I’m not so sure if the anime adaptation will turn out great, but I highly recommend the manga. It’s really fun and has much depth too. I’m currently suffering a withdrawal syndrome due to having to wait one more month to read the next chapter =__= 128 chapters are out and I still can’t get enough of it.

    Ah yes, Yozakura Quartet. Try making it past the manga version’s covers and what you’ll get is one heck of a confusing mess. But it’s entertaining, it’s got likeable characters and the art is gorgeous – so confusing or not, I’ve still got the manga on my “Actively Following” list.

    Definitely looking forward to the anime adaptation (primarily in the hope that the story will be easier to follow on the tube than on the printed page).

    I think you meant Fall 08. Staying on topic, nothing in this fall lineup has interested me.

    usagijen, I’ve never been a fan of purely shoujo manga before, though if it really does warrant an addiction, I’ll give it a few chapters.
    Diego, Yeah, I heard that the story itself wasn’t so hot, though sometimes the art is awesome enough to warrant a read. Given that it’s the anime though, it’ll probably simplify the story quite a bit, so that might make it easier to take in.
    Yamcha, and indeed I did. Good god, I am blind.

    I have my eyes set on Clannad season two, and Ef season two. Can’t wait :D.

    The second seasons of ef and Clannad are also my most anticipated this season, but I’m looking forward to Nodame and Chaos;Head as well.
