Heterochromia - Winter Season Preview - So much anticipation, so few comments

Winter Season Preview - So much anticipation, so few comments

Since my other website is dead (what the heck?) I decided to follow my inner desire to do my winter preview. There are so many things I am looking forward to after all:

drrt
This definitely is the most beautiful scene of the whole series.

Zoku Natsume Yuujinchou
Zoku! Ahaha, what a surprise to see that name. Natsume Yuujinchou would have been the best summer season if Hidamari didn’t exist - and they both got a 9 from me on MAL. As some of you might know, I absolutely can’t wait for the next season to come out, especially since it takes the scanlators ages to move on with the manga.

drrt
Does it look like IKKI style? Sure it does.

Ride Back
I had hoped that this would be an autumn series, and the information might be wrong this time again, but oh well. I have time, and I will patiently wait for this series to come. IKKI series (Bokurano, Tetsuko no Tabi, Noramimi) need more love.

drrt
He actually raped them, most of them at least.

Asakiyumemishi - The Tale of Genji
It’s been 4 or 5 years since I heard about the manga the first time in my life, and I have wanted to read it ever since. While it’s unlikely to happen anytime soon, I’m very glad to see an anime adaptation of this. I guess it has to fail really for me to drop it.
By the way, you probably know Genji Monogatari but did you also know that Yamato Waki’s Asakiyumemishi used to be very highly acclaimed and popular in Japan? With this background, I think that there’s actually a good chance that the series will end up better than your regular shoujo adaptation. Wishful thinking perhaps.

drrt
From left to right: Germany, Italy, Japan, USA, UK

Hetalia Axis Powers
I have started reading the webcomic very recently, and oh how surprised I was to see that there’s going to be an anime about it! O___o I hope the anime series will be more comedy than shounen ai, and I will definitely look into it. Perhaps this is the type of manga that will get yaoi fangirls into looking up european history.

drrt
Winter is beautiful.

Minami-ke 3rd Season
Well, I have not even started watching the second season, but it’s definitely on my agenda… someday.

drrt
What cosplay friendly character design.

Maria†Holic
Everybody and their father is looking forward to this it seems. Of course the gothic lolita characters alone are worth a first look, heh.

drrt
Too bad they most likely are not a yuri couple.

White Album
I have no idea what this is about, honestly, but I like the title and the picture on the website sounds intriguing. After School Days, true tears and ef, I’m not so against watching eroge adaptations anymore, so here’s hoping that this will turn out nicely.

drrt

Konnichi wa Anne
Although I love the WMTs, I never had the opportunity to see Akage no Anne. I’ll take a look at this.

Kemono no Souja Erin
I have never seen “Seirei no Moribito”, but I might one day. Also, I’m not a big fan of the director of Toshokan Sensou, but I’ll keep in mind that this series exists.

It’s only 9 series, sure, but I am interested in so many of them which makes me confident that I will enjoy the season much more than I do for the current.

    What a coincidence! I just read the webcomic of Hetalia Axis Powers last weekend and was totally intrigued by all the country characters… lol. Now it’s become one of my most anticipated animes, if only for curiosity’s sake.

    Early season preview is early! But thanks to that, I think I’ll get myself to start my own research on the Winter season XD

    @lolikit: I wouldn’t say I’m blogging again, as this ‘blogging’ is pretty much limited to season previews and comments on the season for about half a year now.

    @dood: I heard a lot of bad things about Minamike season 2 too - it’s too sad. Also, season 3 is apparently going to be animated by the same studio as season 2? Eeek.

    @usagijen: I know, the country characters also are so incredibly on the spot!

    I love how the US character and the UK character looks almost alike in everything except my country is holding something like a hamburger? Figures. *L*

    Genji the anime? I might have to get my mom watching that one. Out of all the ones you mentioned, I’ll probably at least look at that, just to see it against the book.

    They really do look alike. O.o It also seems that US and UK are a rather popular pairing. XD

    The Genji anime is an adaptation of a shoujo manga, so the whole story would be different and most likely more romantic. As for myself, I have neither read the manga nor the book, so I’m really looking forward to my first exposure to the Genji story. :)

    Good to know that someone else besides me will check out Tale of Genji and Konnichiwa Anne. It is highly likely that I’ll cover these anime, but I just posted previews so far.

    The latest news is that The Tale of Genji anime will not be based on manga, but the novel itself instead.

    @Maura: It’s gotten colder here too, and we are expecting snow by the end of the week. *__*

    @Kitsune: I heard about the news on the new Genji anime, actually I was like “Argh, why are they bringing out such news one day after I write my winter preview?” Heh. Since the fans of the manga are rather sparse in the english anime audience anyways, I didn’t think many people would be interested if I had written a separate post for it, so whatever. :)
