Hello, in my previous blog I talked about how over the next month, I'll be finishing watching a handful of anime. And I promised to write a MUCH shorter blog post about what anime I'm planning on watching next. With soooo much anime available for free online legally, I have lots of anime that I want to check out. The ones below I've been excited to watch for a while, and now I finally get the chance! I am NOT going to give plot summaries, I'm just going to talk about my expectations going into the anime.
The Anime at a glance
Somebody on this site had praise for Casshern Sins, the art style and the story. So it's been on my radar for a while. I know next to nothing about this anime except that the protagonist looks like of like a power ranger and the art looks really nice. I'm looking forward to watching something actiony and entertaining.
A medieval setting anime, centered around a lithe blonde female knight. I heard this anime gets a little dark and gorey, and that the story has some depth to it too. I'm looking forward to getting to know this anime's heroine, hopefully her character has some depth and the story brings out something interesting.
I've heard and seen great things with the animation of this series. The story is something about a guy sharing a body with a hot female alien superhero? It sounds and looks fun, so I'm excited.
GAIIINAAXXXX YOooooooo. I was jumping up and down in my seat when I heard that Crunchyroll had acquired Gurren Lagann. An incredibly popular anime from the people who made Evangelion and FLCL. I've heard the Gurren Lagann gets pretty crazy like FLCL, so that should be fun and exciting. I'm expecting something like Redline? I know that female sniper is a pretty popular cosplay option, I don't understand why she just looks like a slut, but maybe watching the series will enlighten me.
Alas I thought I swore off traditional slice of life/comedy after K-ON Season 2, but somehow I keep coming back with something. It's not really my genre of choice anymore, but I've heard some good things about this anime from some peeps on this site. The art looks bright and unique enough that it gives me some hope for the characters actually having some depth, which is becoming harder to find with the influx of moeclones these days.
I feel like I haven't had enough Kana Hazawa in my life lately. She plays the lead in this anime as a Marry Poppins-like character from outerspace?? I'm not too sure, but it kind of reminded me of Chobits, and I've been meaning to check it out for a while. Here's hoping that the animation and story is good and Kana Hanazawa brought her A-game.
So the question is when will I start watching these series, and will I be blogging about them again? Uhh I don't know, it will still take me a few weeks to finish watching a lot of the anime I listed in my previous blog. So, slowly as I complete different anime series, I'll start watching anime from this list. I can't make any promises about blogging more about these anime, but I'll see.
Any thoughts or warnings about approaching these anime? Leave a comment below! o3o.. or don't.
