Summer 2011 Anime Preview

New animes for the summer will be airing in a couple of days so I figured I’d start on it now~

There will be PV only for the shows that I think are super duper interesting because I’m lazy.

Here is the chart:

The format for the following is a picture representing the show, a short summary, and then my shortened thoughts of each series.

Uta no Prince-sama–Maji Love 1000%

Nanami Haruka wants to be a song writer so she attends an idol training school filled with beautiful bishounen. The school pairs each aspiring songwriter with an aspiring idol but Haruka finds herself paired with 3 idols! To make things more difficult, Nanami is also not allowed to date any of her beautiful partners!

Thoughts: … so a reverse harem. I’m not a fan of harems and I don’t think I’m a fan of reverse harems but I’ll give this one a try since I want to see how cute the dudes will look when they’re animated.

Natsume Yuujin-Chou San

This is a third season of the series ‘Natsume Yuujin-Chou’ where Natsume Takashi has the ability to see spirits which he has long kept secret. However, once he inherits a strange book that belonged to his deceased grandmother, he discovers the reason why spirits surround him. Now, Natsume is determined to free the spirits and dissolve the contracts.

Thoughts: I tried to watch the very first season but at that time, I was just too naive and dumb to understand this series’ true potential. If I have some time, I will definitely try to marathon the first and second season and be ready for this one.

Kamisama Dolls

Kyouhei, after moving away to Tokyo from his old town to get away from the events that happened, is on a goukon with his friends, including his old neighbor, Shiba. After drinking for a whole night, he and Shiba discover a dead, bloody body in the elevator. He is told by his younger sister, Utao with her Kamisama Doll, that Aki, an old friend, and his Doll, are the culprits responsible.

Thoughts: I think I’ll pass on this one. I’m not a huge fan of dolls much less dolls being used as a killing weapon.

Morita-san wa Mukuchi

Morita Mayu, a high school girl, is extremely reticent and her silence and habit of looking at people’s eyes straightly sometimes cause misunderstanding. The reason behind it is not because she doesn’t like to talk nor because she has nothing to say; it is due tot he fact that she thinks too much before speaking, thus losing the timing to speak altogether.

Thoguhts: I can kind of relate to her. >3> She probably just doesn’t want to say the wrong things and then be hated. I’ll try a few eps of this.

Usagi Drop

When 30-year-old Daikichi returns home for his grandfather’s funeral, he meets an unfamiliar child in the garden. His mother explains that Rin is his grandfather’s illegitimate daughter by an unknown mother. The girl is an embarrassment to all his relatives and nobody wants to take her in because of the scandal. Annoyed by their attitude, Daikichi decides to take care of her himself even though he is single and has no experience raising a child.

Thoughts: This could be a fun series where it follows their lives and shows how he raises her since it’s his first time. This could be really cute so I’m looking forward to it.

NO.6

In a future model city in 2013, raised as a top-ranking elite since the age of 2, a boy named Shian lives in an exclusive area in No.6. On the night of his 12th birthday, he rescues a boy who calls himself ‘Nezumi’. Nezumi ran away from the city’s Special Security Area and from that moment on, Shion’s life is changed forever…

Thoughts: I haven’t checked but it seems like a shounen-ai type of anime. Regardless, it seems interesting. The dude with the darker hair kind of reminds me of Kanda and I’m fond of Kanda. haha.

Blood-C

A new original Blood anime.

Thoughts: Wahhh? That’s all for the summary? I only took it off the chart. hah, I was too lazy to go search it up. I haven’t seen the orignal Blood anime but I think I will depending on the first episode of this series.

Mayo Chiki!

Konoe Subaru, 17, has been serving as the bulter of Suzutsuki Kanade in school, a classmate of Sakamachi Kinjirou. Due to an accident, Sakamachi discovers Subaru’s secret… that he’s actually a girl? Apparently she will be removed from her position if anyone at school finds out.

Thoughts: There’s been a lot of talk that this series would be funny so I’m going to give it a try.

R-15

Akutagawa Takuto is a teenage porn novel writer. He enters Hirameki Gakuen, which accepts only geniuses with outstanding talent. He leads his classmates with his porn skills to win the interclass competition.

Thoughts: WHAT? Lol, what is this? Porn skills are useful in competitions? Haha, anyways, it seems like it’ll be funny but if it gets too weird after the first episode, I’ll pass on this one.

Dantalian no Shoka

Hugh Anthony Disward inherits an old mansion and a personal library from his grandfather. In the basement of the mansion, he meets a mysterious girl Dalian. She is a Dantalian and a gateway to ‘Dantalian’s bookshelf’, which stores the prohibited books of the demons.

Thoughts: A mysterious girl found in his basement. Nice. Look, Look. Daisuke Ono and Miyuki Sawashiro will be in it. Yayy, I’m a big fan of the both of them so I’ll definitely check this out.

Kami-sama no Memo-chou

Narumi is an assistant to detective Alice, a NEET teenage girl who stays in her pajamas and operates within her bedroom. She uses her vast network of people and the internet to solve cases. Will Alice be able to solve them in her PJs?

Thoughts: I’d like to know the reason for why she doesn’t go out to solve them herself. I wonder if all we’ll see her in are PJs. hah. Besides, what does NEET stand for?

Mawaru Penguindrum

The story will center around the lives of three siblings: Kanba, Shouma, and Himari Tokakura, with Himari as the female main character.

Thoughts: I like penguins. I want to know what it has to do with penguins. I want to see penguins. haha. I”ll check out the first episode.

Sacred Seven

A ‘new school battle action’ project by Sunrise.

Thoughts: It looks cool.. *_* I just might watch the first episode but it’ll be last on my watch list.

Ikoku Meiro no Croisee

The story takes place in the 2nd half of the 19th, Japanese culture gains popularity in the West. A young Japanese girl, Yune, accompanies a French traveller, Oscar, on his journey back to France, and offers to help at the family’s ironwork shop in Paris. Oscar’s nephew and shop owner Claude reluctantly accepts to take care of Yune, and we learn how those two, who have so little in common, get to understand each other and live together in the Paris of the 1800s.

Thoughts: This could be a really cute love story and I’m curious to see the setting.

Itsuka Tenma no Kuro-Usagi

Taito has been really sleepy lately, and keeps dreaming of a female vampire who says she has given him her ‘poison’. sometimes he even thinks he hears her voice when he’s awake. But after surviving an accident that should have killed him, Taito’s world changes drastically and he realizes that his dreams are more real than he thought.

Thoughts: The dude with the dark blue hair reminds me of Ikuto~~ I might just watch it cause then I can fangirl about it. :3

Nurarihyon no Mage Sennen Makyou

Second season–Rikuo Nura appears to be an average high school kid. No one knows that he comes home everyday to a house full of the once fearsome yokai of legend., nor that at night, Nura transforms into the all powerful leader of these spirits. However, much to the disappointment of well, everyone, Rikuo is determined to live as normal a life as possible.

Thoughts: I love, love, love the first season of course I’m going to watch this season. Besides, from watching the PV– it seems like things are going to get good~~


Final thoughts: I think the upcoming season isn’t so bad. There are a quite a few shows with potential. It’s a bit sad that there aren’t any shonen-ai shows since I’m starting to get into them. I’m pretty excited for when the first episode of these series will air. Which shows are you watching?

  1. NEET = Not in Employment, Education, or Training

  2. One thing I notice for this summer’s anime list is it seems like there will be a lot of anime with very beautiful artwork. Not all, definitely, but quite a huge portion of those.

    Kami-sama no Memo-chou is the one I’m most looking forward to. I hope she goes out once in a while? Haha.

    • I can’t wait~~

      Lol, if she doesn’t ever go out.. I wonder how she gets her food supply… I want to see if she’ll have different PJs on every time we see her. hah.

  4. WAIT WAIT WAIT … HOW DID I MESS THE PENGUIN ANIME? That actually sounds pretty interesting… so… are they penguins are what o.o

    On the other hand.. I’ve never watched the Natsume Yuujin-Chou series.. is it any good?

    • LOL, I dont think there will be penguins…
      The penguins might just be a mascot for the series or something. hah.

      Hmm, I remember it was just really wordy. It’s kind of like Mushishi. I made a mistake thinking that it was all about action. T-T I’ll try watching it with a different mindset and see if I’ll like it.

      So how are yo summer classes going? o.o I have go to get out of my lazy mode… >3>

      • aww seriously D: I would of watched it just for the penguins… but I’m interested what it’ll be about…..

        Oh really? Hmm… I never really liked Mushishi that much since it was kinda too slow and wordy for me…. hmmm….

        Haha ^_^;; actually it’s not that bad.. but alot of the time when I should be studying I sometimes go on the computer and watch anime -_____- how about you?

        • I heard that it has amazing artwork. o.o

          Haha, I feel the same way but I might pick up Mushishi again in hopes that I’ll be able to see it’s real worth.

          Lol, same. I have summer homework and all I’ve been doing is watching anime.

          • Haha it was pretty good ^^;; especially the animation, considering it was done by the same guy as Star Driver and Sailor Moon haha.

            Haha really? It actually seemed too wordy and kinda had this slow, laid back feeling, so I didn’t really enjoy it that much.

            Ahaha well when does your summer school end? Mine ends about next week. ^_^

            • I watched it.. *_* so colorful and wonderful.
              I’m watching Sailor Moon right now and I never knew Usagi was that much of a crybaby in the beginning. >3>

              I’m pretty lucky that there is no summer school but we just get summer homework which prepares us for the upcoming AP classes so i get to work at my pace, yay~~ you must be excited. what are you planning to do after? o.o
