Fall 2009 Anime Season Preview


   Darker than Black -Ryuusei no Gemini-
 Darker than Black -Ryuusei no Gemini-

I know, I know, I'm a bit late getting this fall 2009 anime preview to you-- the fall shows are already starting all over the place! But hopefully the wealth of information will make it up to you. As those of you who've been through a couple of my season previews before, you know I'm always trying to tweak the formula to give you guys the info you want most in the most sensible ways. This time around I'm making use of that handy-dandy spoiler/nsfw tagger-- because I know I get sick of having to scroll through so much stuff!
 
So it looks kinda like this: each show has its own "cut" or "jump," with all the information, the trailer (or other visual, if I couldn't find an embeddable trailer), etc. underneath it. And each one of those jumps is labeled for its show with a nice little one-liner, so you know whether you want to look at it or not. Hopefully this'll make it easier to scroll through this when you're looking for one specific thing later, and help it from looking like just a giant, daunting wall of text! And so, without further ado...

.... Wow....
This is, like, some sort of bible for Fall anime.

Railgun ftw! because no one wins against a girl who fires tungsten coins at 3500m/s! Seriously though, it seems like it will be a very fun show.
 
Nyan-koi seems quite promising so far as well, and Seitokai no Ichizon seems to be pretty funny too. Miracle Train on the other hand, is funny for all the wrong reasons.

Damn, the only anime from shaft isnt using the same style they used for Moon Phase and Negima!?
 
The YANS GANS reminds me of Mr Stain on Junk Ally

It's just been confirmed that Aya Uchida and Aya Gouda will be performing the theme song for the Kiddy Girl-and series.  
I read somewhere that Chihara Minoru's song was used for the pilot DVD just because someone on the staff had heard it and liked it - it wasn't commisioned specially or anything.

I'm watching: 
 
  • White Album 2nd Season:  didn't like the first but might as well get the whole thing over with. 
  • Sasameki Koto: Looks interesting
  • Nyan Koi: I love cats
  • Kobato: CLAMP!
  • Sora no Otoshimono: BOOBS!
  • Winter Sonata: I hope this makes me cry, I've heard the movie is extremely sad
  • Kimi ni Todoke
  • Aoi Bungaku Series: Looks like it might have some epicness. 
  • A Certain Scientific Railgun
JJOR64on Oct. 4, 2009 at 5:30 p.m.
Damn, so many coming out.  Not really sure what to watch.
John_Martoneon Oct. 4, 2009 at 6:08 p.m.
@JJOR64: I tend to use this as a primer. Like, when I hear about things I could watch, I look them up on Gia's list to see if they sound like something I'd like to check out.
 
Obviously personal recommendations are good too, but I dunno what I'm going to watch either.
Agent_Loston Oct. 4, 2009 at 6:23 p.m.
Sweet, so much info.
Chengyon Oct. 4, 2009 at 6:29 p.m.
Hardly any of those appealed to me, i might give Kobato and Sora no Otoshimono a chance though
giaon Oct. 4, 2009 at 6:35 p.m.
@Shirobane: Thanks for the heads-up; I'll fix that :)
JJOR64on Oct. 4, 2009 at 7:03 p.m.
@John_Martone: True.  I one of those guys who likes the watch a bunch of episodes in a row so, maybe I should just stick with some old stuff for now and see how the reception is for the new stuff coming out before I check them out.

One does not simply walk into Mordor without Gia's fall guide. 
Noodleson Oct. 4, 2009 at 8:23 p.m.
Definitely going to skip the first few weeks of this season and wait for the internet's verdict on the new shows. I just don't have the time (or patience) to pick up every series at episode 1 anymore. =/

I'm planning to watch
Sasameki Koto - I've been reading the manga for a while now am I'v e been enjoying it
Seitokai no Ichizon - SOund like it could be interesting... 

 And I'm actually kind interested interested in Kiddy Girl -And if onl for the facct it is actually airing... I figured that canceled a long time ago so I'll check it out.  I'll probably check out some other shows when I start hearing feedback on them.

OK, it's taken me 2 days to read this, you wrote so much on everything.  And it's the most comprehensive listing!  Thank you Gia! This is why I adore your anime guides.  I've got 12 series I'm interested in this fall.  ^_^
kira112on Oct. 11, 2009 at 6:41 a.m.

ok watched nyou koi and 11 eyes + the otaku club like genshiken seem great ^^
Sigueon Oct. 16, 2009 at 6:10 p.m.
Darker than Black is delicious and Natsu no Arashi is a marked improvement over its predecessor, which I already liked. Fairy Tail is pretty bad though.
Netstrykeon Oct. 21, 2009 at 11:56 p.m.
Locked-In to:
  1. Kiddy Girl-and
  2.  A Certain Scientific Railgun
  3.  Fairy Tail
  4.  Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu: Purezza
  5. 11Eyes
