Honya’s Fall 2008 Watch List

Epic Anime Season is Epic. Fall season will be starting in just a few days time and it is looking to be one of the best in recent memory. With shows like CLANNAD: After Story and Gundam 00 Second Season, this coming season looks like it will be Fall 2007 remix version 2.0. There are also plenty of new shows like ChaoS;Head that have plenty of potential to be awesome. I tried to narrow my watch list down but given the sheer amount of WIN, it was near impossible.

Will Watch
These are anime that I will watch no matter what even if they end up killing my grades in Japanese class.

  • CLANNAD: After Story – I am a KEY fanboy, what can I say. I stopped playing the VN just so that I wouldn’t spoil myself too much about the true end will BAAAWWW for several days after the ending.
  • Jigoku Shoujo Mitsuganae – I just love Jigoku Shoujo especially because of Noto Mamiko’s role as Enma Ai. Can’t wait to see more.
  • Shigofumi OVA – One of the most interesting shows to come out of Winter 2007. It has much of the same appeal as Jigoku Shoujo so that may be why I like it so much.
  • Lucky Star OVA – This one doesn’t need much explaining. More crazy nonsense from Konata and friends Kagami.
  • ChaoS;HEAd – I actually don’t know much about this other than that the VN is supposed to be epic. Will probably watch the anime first before playing the game.
  • Kyou no Go no Ni (TV) – I was really excited when I heard the series would get a TV adaptation. I really enjoyed the cute and funny OVA series and can’t wait for more collarbones.
  • ef -a tale of melodies– – Honestly I couldn’t stand most of the characters in -a tale of memories- except for Renji and Chihiro. However I enjoyed those two’s story enough to want to watch more.
  • Gundam 00 Second Season – My Gundam maniac friend Citrus got me to watch the first season of 00 so I will end up watching it so that I will know what he is talking about in the coming weeks.
  • Rosario to Vampire Capu2 – I expect absolutely nothing from this series except absurd amounts of fanservice and Mizore. I’m only watching this because I want to know if they can out do themselves this time.

(OVAs continuing on from previous seasons)

Probably Watch
This a list of shows I want to watch but can bear not to if I don’t have time.

  • Nodame Cantabile Paris Chapter – I already know what’s going to happen since I watched the dorama version. I’m just curious at to whether it can match the superior dorama at all.
  • Shugo Chara 2 – I found Shugo Chara to be a cute mahou shoujo series. I’m really behind though so I have to catch up first before I start 2.
  • Quiz Magic Academy – Not really sure what this is about except that it came with the DS game of the same name. It also has an interesting name so I figure it’s worth a shot.
  • Seto no Hanayome – I have yet to finish the TV series but I found the first few episodes to be a riot so I will watch the OVA once I catch up.

Might Watch
These are anime I will keep a tab on but will not watch right away. If they get a generally positive fan feedback or have must-see content, then I may watch them.

With that my list is finally done. I hope I don’t have to become a NEET in order to watch everything I want to.

    Similar lists, but I seem to have more that I intent to watch, and less that I actually will watch.
    And I’m just afraid of what could happen to Chaos;HEAd’s adaptation. If it ends up sucking, I will never forgive Madhouse.
