Anime fall season 2011
Looking at the fall anime season line up, seems like it will be a busy season with a long list of interesting series to watch! The two series I am most looking forward to are actually sequels, namely “Shinryaku!? Ika Musume” and “Working!!”.
Adored the first season of both these hilarious comedies and cannot wait to see more, am keen to discover which of these two shows will earn the best comedy of the season spot for which they no doubt will be prime contenders.
Adored the first season of “Shinryaku! Ika Musume”, the anime adaptation of the supernatural gag manga by Masahiro Anbe. Each episode of this show was hilarious, so am l quite excited about the second season.
Another epic comedy which gets a sequel is “Working’!!”, can’t wait to see more silly adventures of Wagnaria’s oddball crew. Though must confess am also hoping there will be plenty of trap action with the lovely Korori-chan!
Will definitely pick up “Tamayura ~hitotose~”. Originally an OVA by Sato Junichi of “Aria” fame, a full season television series of this lovely show simply cannot be missed.
Where the OVA lacked time to make it as enchanting as “Aria” was time, a full season should be plenty to pull the viewer into its wonderful reality and make them fall in love with its characters. Have high hopes for this series.
Quite curious about “Boku ha Tomodachi ga Sukunai”, originally a light novel series by Hirasaka Yomi which has already spawned two manga adaptations, this romantic comedy now receives the anime treatment.
Not sure yet if it will be able to transcend the mediocrity of most harem comedies of which there are so many each season, but am keen to watch it and find out! Plus it has Itou Kanae and Inoue Marina in the voice cast.
Not a sequel as such, “Last Exile: Ginyoku no Fam” is a new anime project taking place in the same world as “Last Exile”, a series that made quite an impression on me when it originally aired.
Was struck by the character designs of Range Murata, the unique world it took place in and the different atmosphere of the original series.
While always felt that the “Fate/stay night” never really lived up to its potential, definitely will watch “Fate/Zero”, the anime adaptation of Type Moon’s “Fate” prequel story.
Other shows that seem interesting to sample are “Ben-To”, the anime adaptation of a light novel series, its premise looks promising to provide some good comedy. Must say “Chihayafuru”, “Busou Shink Moon Angel”, “Mirai Nikki” and “Maken-Ki” sound interesting as well.
As if all those shows weren’t enough to satisfy one’s appetite for anime, there’s plenty of OVA’s, OAD’s and other specials, including those for “Hourou Musuko”, “Queen’s Blade”, “Usagi Drop”, “IS: Infinite Stratos”, “Seitokai Yakuindomo”… and let’s not forget the next “Gundam Unicorn” episode as well as more “Carnival Phantasm”.
What will you be watching next season?
