First rankings post for 2008, and my watch list for spring 2008. And why top 3? Because there were no other shows currently being watched eagerly.
1. ARIA the Origination – It just keeps getting better and better with each episode. How can I complain?
2. Shion no Ou – I never anticipated this show would get me so hooked. But Saito with Hani-meijin just makes me a little uneasy. Eww, bad thoughts go away! :p
3. Kimikiss Pure Rouge – There are a lot of times I question myself: why am I watching this show with generic-looking characters? I had entertained the idea of dropping it. But when Futami said ‘I’m not crying.’ although she obviously was, that made me cast away the thought of dropping Kimikiss. The scene was hilarious.
History’s Strongest Disciple Kenichi – Just 10 episodes more and I’m done.
Gundam 00– Need to marathon this.
Hayate no Gotoku – Need to marathon this.
Gunslinger Girl Il Teatrino – No new subbed episodes.
Mnemosyne– No new episodes.
Persona Trinity Soul
To pick up:
Shigofumi, Ghost Hunt,Saiunkoku Monogatari 2,Ookiku Furikabutte
- Bus Gamer – Hmm, key words are ‘corporate secrets’ and ‘gambling.’ Maybe you could add ‘potential appearance of bishies.’ [03/14]
- Macross Frontier – My most anticipated show of the year! [04/03]
- Nijuu-Mensou no Musume – Something about a female thief. Well, the girl doesn’t look too generic at all.
- Allison to Lillia – Key words are ‘treasure’, ‘war’, and ‘mangaka of Kino no Tabi.’ [04/03]
- Code Geass – Lelouch of the Rebellion II – I need to see more Lelouch. [04/06]
- Soul Eater – Bones? I guess watching the 1st ep won’t hurt.[04/07]
- Vampire Knight – maya has been raving about this for quite a while and the key word here is ‘vampire.’ I hope the adaptation doesn’t ‘suck’, though. [04/07]
- Himitsu Top Secret – The title itself is redundant, but catchy. But I’m watching it for the sci-fi.[04/08]
- Library Wars – Production I.G. Sci-fi. Isn’t that enough reason to watch?
- Crystal Blaze – ‘Adult-oriented mystery-story is set in New York’. Adult-oriented just reminds me of Mnemosyne but mysteries are for the curious and I am curious about how this will turn out.[04/17]
- Real Drive – Production I.G and Masamune Shirow? I’m in.
- xxxHolic: Tsugi – Watanukiiiiiiiii!!!!!!! ‘Nuff said. [04/2008]
Well, it’s going to be a busy April for me and that’s why I’m gonna go full blast on catch-ups. I’ll also try to ease up on the post backlogs. Till next post, ja!
