Since I just did the Winter Anime post, and I’ve got some free time now I just thought that I’d quickly add a dash of Spring since it’s a pretty short list for now =D I’m sure we’ll live through the next year to be able to watch it since I don’t believe in a 2012 apocalypse, but just in case… everyone pray with me.
As usual, main source is FanSubWiki. Enjoy!
Kimi to Boku Season 2
J.C. Staff, TV Tokyo
The story follows the lives of four teenage boys who have known each other for most of their lives. Their friendship has its ups and downs, but they remain close into high school. A half-Japanese transfer student joins their group and adds a new dynamic to the everyday adolescent friendships depicted in this comedic anime.
Well if any of you are wondering ‘heck, they’ve already prepared a second season?’; the whole series has apparently been split into two seasons with 13 episodes each. If you haven’t watched it yet, it’s a shoujo slice-of-life that has everything but explicitly announced shounen-ai. Or it might pull a No. 6 on me and really turn out to be a kinda sorta partial shounen-ai for shiz. It’s pretty good though so far, worth a watch if you like those everyday life kinda stories =)
The 26-episode, CGI anime series Train Hero deals with a rescue team that handles disasters on a network of high-speed trains crisscrossing the country, transforming to do so. A movie version is planned to debut as China’s own high speed Beijing/Shanghai train is due to be available, in 2012.
If I was still a kid, I would probably be obsessed about this. Kinda wondering why more of these anime genres aren’t around – I know a lot of kids who are half obsessed over trains. Speaking of trains, Train Man (Densha Otoko) is a book/manga/movie really worth reading/watching 😄
Kurokami Medaka, a first year, is elected as Student Council President, and the first thing she does is establish a suggestion box. Since she was just elected as Student Council President, she’s holding all the Student Council’s responsibilities, and wearing their armbands. So, she asks her childhood friend Hitoyoshi Zenkichi, for help.
I did read this manga, and it was pretty interesting but I just dropped it somewhere halfway because I just couldn’t be bothered to continue. Not surprised it got an anime, since it’s got pretty much every facet of turning into an anime covered. I’ll definitely be watching this, for the action scenes if not for anything else.
A story about the humorous misadventures of Akabane Aya, an arrogant high school girl who’s constantly trying to outdo her classmates in everything (especially sex appeal), only to make a fool of herself in the process. Since the story takes place in an all-girls school, expect lots of yuri innuendos (and sometimes even blatant yuri).
Er. Well. Not really my kinda anime, but if it’s hilarious I’ll watch it >=D
