We have an ending...
Tengen Toppa Gurren-Lagaan
Comedy, mecha, bikinis... okay, then.
Ge Ge Ge no Kitarou
The really old manga that popularized youkai stories is being animated! I wonder if they'll do it in 1960's style. I can't tell because the site refuses to load. Apparently, it's getting a live-action movie, too. The one live-action movie guy is moe~. Least I think so. Perhaps this bodes well for the animated version.
Hayate no Gotoku
Hayate the Combat Butler, that mysteriously very hyped new anime! Yakuza, evil parents, runaway kid, cute small children, and cute romance, apparently. What more could one want?
The Gold Race called all the other sentient aliens into space. The humans missed the memo and showed up late, so they get the sucky name of Iron Race. Hundreds of years later, they're threatened by the Silver Race. How do you get out of that? Well, they've got a prophecy, a young boy, and a mecha, so they should do fine.
Kaze no Shoujo Emily
Yup, it's Emily of New Moon! Well, all the books, really. It's all bad-animation style like Shoujo Cosette, which makes sense considering what they're trying to emulate. I just want another S-Strain if they're going to update old books.
Seirei no Moribito
So this guy gets pregnant with an egg. A water fairy put it there, probably because it was a sadistic water fairy, but officially because every 100 years, the water fairies have to do that. The egg-guy is also a prince. And the king wants him dead. And there are aliens that want to eat the egg. This is just creeping me out. Next!
Baseball and ugly animation.
Wellber no Monogatari: Sisters of Wellber
The art looks pretty but I couldn't figure much else out. Curse my sucking at Japanese.
Runaway finds himself shipwrecked on an island! If you act now, receive a free harem!
Seto no Hanayome
Kinda like Pichi Pichi Pitch, except instead of a mermaid instantly turning into sea foam when her identity is revealed, she gets sentenced to execution. Also, no magical idol singers.
The manga's licensed by Del Rey as "Princess Resurrection". Creepy chainsaw girl raises the dead to fight creatures of the night. And by that, I mean vampires and ghosts and stuff. Not, you know, owls. Or mosquitoes.
Youma disguised as humans prey on them... therefore there must be someone that fights youma. Enter master race of cute young girls that balance drama about what they have become with kicking monster butt.
Shinkyoku Soukai Polyphonica
Yet another case of "looks cool, what is it".
Lovecon: Lovely Complex
Sounds like a sequel to Lovedol... a tall girl and a short guy are always called a comedy duo and never taken seriously. Can they stop fighting long enough to break the social requirements they don't meet, fall in love, and attract the nightly shoujo drama audience?
The idolM@STER: Xenoglossia
Mecha, girls, music, meh. Might impress me if I give it a chance.
Romance, cute character designs-- hey, is that Karen Clavius, escaped into a better-animated show?
Saint Beast ~Seijuu Kourin Hen~
In ye olden days of ancient whatever, there were a bunch of angels. They were called Saintly Beasts. And they ruled over everything because they were cool like that. Then two of them were all "You suck" and defected. Those two got sealed away. Now they're back. The other four have to stop them from doing... whatever it is they do.
Guy with amnesia wakes up with two Very Powerful Rings. So it's kinda like Lord of the Rings, but with two. Cause they're all powerful and drive you crazy and make you try to kill people and stuff.
Yet more "cool art, what is it". And hey, Ise Mariya's the main character. She's a cute Urara-chan.
Another old manga! Orphan with weird lab-tested powers kills a lot of people to get revenge. DOOM.
Kono Aozora ni Yakusoku wo
Does this sound like something Key would name their games, or is it just me? A small town is about to lose its factories, meaning no jobs, meaning no people. All they have to hold onto is a promise... probably made by the main girl to the main character or vice versa. It was adapted from a bishoujo game, after all.
Bokura no what? A large group of kids (don't worry about keeping them straight, apparently they get killed off a lot) comes upon a strange man advertising a mecha game with just enough beta mechs for all of them. They get trapped inside the game and everything starts to suck.
I don't know~
It's so in Japanese!
Shy girl gets drafted into drama club. I was drafted onto the soccer team once. I was played less than people with broken bones, if I recall.
Based on a cel phone game where you spend real money on your virtual girlfriend, otherwise she thinks you're cheap and dumps you... How's this going to work?
Kodomo no Jikan
It's the KyoAni yonkoma series! I'm surprised anyone hasn't heard of this. Guess after Haruhi went under everyone's radar last spring, people are keeping a close eye on KyoAni.
Apparently a sequel to Kotetsu Jeeg. Which I haven't seen. Let's see... Kotetsu Jeeg was from the 1970s! Anyone else seeing a pattern here?
Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS
YES. I AM WATCHING THIS. YOU CANNOT MAKE ME NOT WATCH THIS. IF YOU TRY, YOU FAIL.
Darker than BLACK -Kuro no Keiyakusha
Because BLACK just has to be CAPITALIZED. Plot? Weird data field shows up in Tokyo. Humans get powers from it. But... oh yeah, they're powers from hell, and make you insane. Great.
Devil May Cry
Yeah, skipping this too.
Eikoku Koi Monogatari Emma: The Second Act
Didn't see the first one. Maids are bleh. Although she doesn't seem to be an average meido.
El Cazador De La Bruja
Loli on the run, suspected of murder. Joins up with the bounty hunter that's supposed to be after her. I doubt that happens in real life. So they go trying to figure out the loli's past, then the loli has some weird destiny, and there's treasure involved.
Kaze no Stigma
Romeo X Juliet
Romeo: I want to be with you!
Juliet: That's against the rules, isn't it?
Romeo: Screw the rules, I have green hair!
Verona: *still just floats, glad that it isn't Shibuya*
YES. YOU CANNOT MAKE ME NOT WATCH THIS EITHER. PLEASE DO NOT LET IT SUCK.
Manga's "To Terra" in English. All I know is that there was some big fight over whether it was shoujo or shounen. And it's in space.
Oh! Edo Rocket
In the old days of Edo, idealistic young children decide to build bottle rockets or something. At this point in the preview, I'm too lazy to correct myself.
Street racer finds a mysteriously fast car in the junkyard. It's not being junked because it's actually a mecha that can save the world or anything. It's because it's cursed. Well, same deal. He's going to drive it anyway.
Kids gain the power to make their shadows manifest into monsters. If I could do that, I wouldn't have been teased in kindergarten, oh no. Although I probably would have caused the end of the world. These guys are more sensible, saving the town from some guy that terrorizes the world every ten years when he gets bored or something.
Tie-in to a renai game by Broccoli. Well, I played Galaxy Angel, that was good.
...and a beginning.
