Anime summer season 2010
The summer anime season is almost here! With the spring anime series approaching their finales or halfway mark for the longer running shows, took a look at the line-up of series slated to air this summer.
Will definitely be watching “Strike Witches 2” as I really enjoyed the first season of this series based on the original work by Shimada Humikane. Hope that the animation of this sequel done by AIC will be up to par with the animation of “Strike Witches” by Gonzo.
Am concerned though that not all voice actresses may return to reprise their roles as the witches, already saw that Mio Sakamoto will now be played by Saori Seto instead of Saeko Chiba.
Another series I will watch is “High School Of The Dead”, the anime adaptation of the horror manga written by Daisuke Satou with art by Shoji Sato. Although zombie stories aren’t my personal preference, thought the H.O.T.D. manga was quite good with an interesting take on the post-apocalyptic zombies infested world type plot.
Judging by the trailer on the official website, it promises to be a faithful adaptation of the original, full with blood, gore, zombie massacres and busty fighting babes. Have high expectations for this series!
Other series that piqued my interest and which I will sample are “Asobi Ni Iku Yo”, “Seitokai Yakuindomo” and “Amagami SS”.
“Asobi No Iku Yo” looks interesting not only because of the cat eared girl antics, but the original light novels feature art by Houden Eizo, an excellent artist who also did the original art for the “Wagaya No Oinari-sama” novels.
Wonder what “Seitokai Yakuindomo” will be like, haven’t read the manga but it looks like it might be somewhat akin to “Seitokai No Ichizon” with a zest of “Kaichou Wa Maid-sama” perhaps?
Also animated by AIC, “Amagami SS” could end up being standard fare seeing it’s based on a dating sim, yet do like that the series will be in chapter format, focusing on each girl in turn.
Considering that “K-ON!!” is slated to run 26 episodes am looking forward to seeing the light music club girls’ antics continue into the summer season. Will keep on blogging this terrific slice-of-life comedy series, though I haven’t decided yet which other series I might episodically blog, if any.
What will you be watching this summer season?
