Thoughts on New Shows

So here's some quick thoughts on the new season, based on what I've seen so far. Links go to JASCII's Anime Show Comments.

  • School Rumble - I've only seen one episode, but I want more. So far it's got one of the best love triangles ever in a show. And it's pretty damn funny too. I'll be watching more of this.
  • Bleach - Ever since my friend Lyn pointed me at the manga for this I've been a huge fan. So when I heard they were doing an anime I was psyched and nervous. This is one show I really wouldn't want to see messed up. Though I've only seen the first episode, I have to say that they've done a bang-up job with this. It has just the right feel that it should. This is something that I am sure will be licensed soon. The manga is also currently available here in the States and I highly recommend it.
  • Uta-Kata - A girl from another world visits a high school girl on her last day of school before the summer and ends up staying with her. It seems like it might be interesting.
  • Beet the Vandel Buster - Enh. I'll check out a second episode, but it isn't doing a ton for me.
  • SunaBouzu - I think I like this one. It takes place on some post-apocalyptic world. The main character does the jobs that nobody else wants to do. It's pretty silly. And it has boobs. But it has promise (even if the character designs don't do much for me).

Next time round: Gunbuster 2, Harukanaru Toki no Naka de, Tsukuyomi Moon Phase, and others.
