Fall 09 Anime Preview

With summer ending means fall/autumn is approaching.  With anime, the summer season has been a surprise with the decent amount of shows airing.  However, I cannot say so much about the fall season.  From the looks of the shows that is about to premiere this fall, it looks like many of the shows will be very disappointing.  Here is my preview on the anime coming this fall.

Most of these information is pulled from ANN, anidb, MAL, Wikipedia, and Chartfag’s chart.

Darker than BLACK: Gemini of the Meteor

Animation Studio: BONES

Summary:  Two years have passed since Hei and Yin escaped the Syndicate after the events of the first season. Making their way to Russia, Hei encounters a young girl named Suou Pavlichenko, whose family is gradually pulled into the war between contractors and various intelligence factions. Meanwhile, Misaki Kirihara has quit her position in Foreign Affairs to begin her own investigations into Hei, the Contractors and the Syndicate. -ANN

Comment:  Darker than BLACK is one of my favorite series.  I enjoyed season 1 and cannot wait for season 2.  I just hope that it will not have second season syndrome like Gundam 00 and Code Geass R2.  Hopefully, the tone of the show stays the same and that they develop the new characters like how they did the first season.

Trapeze ( Kūchū Buranko)

Animation Studio: Toei Animation

Director:  Kenji Nakamura

Summary:  Irabu Ichiro is an eccentric psychiatrist. Patients, who visit him to have a counseling, are perplexed with his weird behavior. -MAL

A Japanese short novel and a title of a collection of short stories written by Hideo Okuda and is the second volume of Irabu Ichiro series.  It is also the 131st Naoki Prize winners.

Comment:  From basically the staff of Monoke, they bring you the adaptation of Trapeze.  It seems to be a very interesting, and I hope it does not fail in it.   I heard that the book is pretty good and has some witty comedy in it.  Also, it airs at Fuji TV noitamina’s timeslot, which aired Honey and Clover, the Nodame series, Eden of the East, and recently Tokyo Magnitude 8.0.

The first book of the series, In the Pool, has been released with English translation.   So if you want to find out more, you can pick it up.

Reaching You (Kimi ni Todoke)

Animation Studio: Production I.G.

Director:  Hiro Kaburaki

Summary:  Kimi ni Todoke is about a girl named Kuronuma Sawako. She is nicknamed Sadako (from The Ring) because many people see her as strange and often mistake her for a ghost. A boy called Kazehaya kun becomes her friend and, to her, is “100% refreshness.”

Kuronuma Sawako’s one wish in life is to make friends. That’s a difficult proposition when everyone who meets her cowers in terror. She admires her classmate, Kazehaya-kun, a popular, easygoing and 100% refreshing guy who is nice with everyone, even with her. -ANN

Comment:  Based from one of the most popular shoujo manga out there right now, this show cannot help but pique my interest.  Whether it will be good or not, will be tough to determine if you have not read the manga.  However, I put potential on this one being at least good.  If not else, at least the animation production should be good since Production I.G. is handling it.

So if you want to find out more about this, read the manga and make your decision.

Everything Else:

Well everything else does not look too interesting right now or is just crap and should not be watched.

Edit:  Blue Literature also looks interesting.   Also, Kobato might be worth a couple episode watch since it is based off of CLAMP manga.
