A Handful of Winter Anime 2011/2012 =)

So from our stats here at MW, it’s pretty much blatantly, in-your-face obvious that most people frequent our blog for all the upcoming anime, so here I’ll give a small dose of what’s to come in Winter this/next year. Enjoy!

Btw, as usual, my main source is from FanSubWiki. Good starting point to look for new anime! =D

Kyousogiga

Toei Animation, Web Stream (12/10)

In a world where boundary between human and yokai worlds is no longer distinguishable, 3 different groups pursue for power. What is Count of Reality and Destruction of Negentrophy? Koto, a high school girl who got out of maze of Java Work, chases the shadow of “Kuro Usagi (Black Rabbit)”. This is a story surrounding various people chasing Kuro Usagi in Kyoto, where time has stopped.

Okay everyone, P-L-E-A-S-E watch the PV if you feel that life is worth living. Don’t let the 5 minutes be a total turn-off, from the moment it started I felt like it really captured me. There’s the music, the animation and just the whole atmosphere that just makes it already feel like a wonderful anime. So please watch the PV and share my sentiments😄

BlackRock Shooter

Ordet, Fuji TV

On her first day of junior high, the innocent and naïve Mato meets with the mature Yomi. The time they spend together strengthens a growing friendship, but as they go into their second year at the school, they begin to grow apart. In another world, a young girl, blue fire residing in her eyes, Black Rock Shooter faces another young girl; this one holding a jet-black scythe, Dead Master, and a battle to the death begins to unfold.

Haven’t watched the OVA, but I know it gained a huge fan base from that only. The animation’s looking pretty nifty so I’ll be watching out for this too😉

Natsume Yuujin-Chou Shi

Brains Base, TV Tokyo

Fourth Season of Natsume Yuujinchou. Natsume Takashi has been able to see spirits, but it’s a heavy burden for him. When Takashi inherits his grandmother Reiko’s “Book of Friends” and learned the true meaning behind the Book, he undertakes a journey with his bodyguard, the infamous spirit Madara, to free the spirits of their contracts with Reiko.

Hahaha so yes. Fans of Natsume Yuujinchou would probably already know this, since it’s been announced in Monthly LaLa as well as during the final episode of Natsume Yuujinchou San. I, for one, am definitely looking forward to this as it’s one of my favourite series. If you don’t know shit about what I’m talking about, you’re only missing out on one of the greatest works ever.

New Prince of Tennis

MSC, TV Tokyo

The anime will be based on the New Prince of Tennis manga, which begins several months after the end of the original series. In Japan, an “All Star Team” is being formed, containing the 50 best tennis players from the entire country.

This was the big thing when I was like… 13? Anyway the best sports manga from Jump is now and forever Eyeshield 21. Please throw away the rest of your life and read the manga (the anime isn’t worth it).

P.A. Works

In the spring of 1998, a boy named Sakakibara Kouichi transfers, and grows suspicious of the fearful atmosphere in that classroom. In particular, there is a beautiful, aloof girl named Mei Misaki who wears an eye patch and is always alone drawing pictures.

I think I read like one chapter before, it really does seem to be worth looking into – well in the end it is P.A. Works and I like their stuff so far. Looks like they decided to move onto darker stuff after HanaIro and Angel Beats previously… ho-ho-ho…

Inu x Boku SS

David Production

The Shirakiin house’s daughter, Shirakiin Riricho, who has a complex about being unable to live independently and unprotected, feels the need to move out and live on her own under the condition of residing in the mansion named “Ayakashi Kan.” In this mansion, only those who have cleared a very strict examination could reside in it, and for each resident, they are accompanied with one agent of the Secret Service (S.S.). Although Riricho has rejected the company of the S.S., while residing in the mansion she finds out that the agent dedicated to protecting her is actually the Fox Spirit whom she previously rescued.

Lol the manga cover looks like Ciel and Sebastian. Except that ‘Ciel’ is a girl (not that he ever looked that much like a man really) and ‘Sebastian’ has white hair. Still has that dominatrix expression on his face though lol
Overall though this
does look interesting… gonna give the manga a go now😄

Baby, Please Kill Me/Kill Me Baby

J.C. Staff, TBS/BS-TBS

 Kill Me Baby is a 4-panel style manga that follows the comedic life of a typical school girl Yasuna and her assassin classmate Sonya. Sonya’s attempt to fit in often fails when her natural assassin instincts kick in and Yasuna’s attempt to be more friendly with Sonya often gets her hurt or intimidated.

The 4-koma is really quite cute😄

High School DxD

TNK

Hyoudou Issei is an ordinary yet lecherous highschool student who is killed by his girlfriend, Amano Yuuma, during their first date. Yuma is revealed to be a fallen angel named Reinare who was sent on a mission to eliminate divine weapons. Issei is later reincarnated as a devil by his senpai Rias Gremory; who in return will serve under Rias in fighting against the fallen angels.

The typical type of anime I do not like. Oh well.
