Spring is looming

March 6th, 2008 by Author

Like everyone else, I’ve read through the list at Impz’s and started to try shows for size. It looks like OVAs are missing, but it will do for now.

Macross F: The Plus was on my list. Might as well try this.

Nabari no Ou: Seems like Naruto redone, let’s check it out.

Uchino 3 shimai: lulz maybe

To Love-ru: Looks like Urusei Yatsura reimagined. I haven’t seen the original, so…

[Tower of] Druaga: The Tales of Symphonia was a horrible disaster, and so was Legend of Lodoss War. Why am I attracted to this?

Itakiss (Itazura na Kiss): We need a new Kare Kano. And apparently, the source material has an ending, a big plus.

Kyouran Kazoku Nikki: Seems like a promizing comedy, but the name suggests an endless series like Hayate.

Every, and I do mean every pre-selected series, except Macross F, has one issue: the number of episodes is unknown. I’ll never buy into another Naruto size franchize, and here in some cases it’s an enormous risk. Nabari no Ou has the risk built in by definition. Itakiss may simply be long like Maison Ikkoku. But really, everything attractive carries a possibility for milking.

I suppose I just have to roll with the flow and see how it goes.

P.S. About losers:

Bus Gamer: An evil corporation? Bah, socialists.

Golgo 13: A Jerk Bond? Bah. BTW, local Blockbuster still has it on VHS.

Ikuze Gen-san: Another bad corp? What’s wrong with Japan? Dropping with extreme prejustice.

Kyou Kara Maou! 3rd Season: a sequel.

Allison to Lillia: Looks pretty, but WW2 + supernatural… No.

Kanokon: Furries (without propellers).

Zettai Karen Children: Sounds nice, but promo art looks meh, so pass.

Code Geass R2: a sequel.

Soul Eater: Mildly interesting, but seems horror-esquie, pass.

Vampire Knight: Vampire, pass.

Monochrome Factor: Shadow world, pass.

Kamen no Maid Guy: Seems trashy, pass for now (I reserve judgement).

Kaiba: Artsy art, pass (what is this, Disney?)

Crystal Blaze: Crime novel, bah.

Da Capo II Second Season: a sequel.

RD Sennou Chousashitsu: Looks like Lain redux, pass.

Himitsu Top Secret: Bishies, pass. Crime novel, double pass.

Toshokan Sensou: ROD for girls? Bah. Nice art though. Also, 12 episodes. Hmm… I’ll keep it in mind.

Wagaya no Oinari-sama: Ranma said everything there was to say about sex-swapping.

Nijuu Menzou Musume: Crime chick, drop.

xxxHOLic Kei: a sequel.

Kure-nai: Crime, Rental Magica inside-out, whatever.

S-A ~Special-A~: WTF, is spring the season of Kare Kano remakes? If Itakiss fails, I switch to this.

Junjou Romantica: homos.

Neo Angelique Abyss: Supernatural, pass.

Amatsuki: BAMF? Pass for now.

Blassreiter: Supernatural and a battle royal? Pass.

The competition is tough this spring.
