Fall 2011 Anime List

Last Exile - Ginyoku no Fam
(image taken from hashihime's blog)

A nice write-up over at hashihime's blog.

My personal list:

  • Shinryaku!? Ika Musume
  • C³ (*)
  • Working'!!
  • Fate/Zero (*)
  • Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon (*)
  • Hunter x Hunter (*)
  • Phi Brain: Kami no Puzzle
  • Tamayura - Hitose
  • Kimi to Boku
  • Chihayafuru
  • Persona 4 (*)
  • Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai
  • Last Exile - Ginyoku no Fam (*)
  • Ben-Tou
  • Mobile Suit Gundam AGE (*)
  • Mirai Nikki (*)
  • Un-Go (*)
  • Guilty Crown (*)
  • Ad-lib Anime Laboratory (*)
As you can see, there are some not-so-good shows in there (Tamayura, Ben-Tou) simply because of certain seiyuus. Also, I need my weekly fix of simple, feel-good anime (Ika Musume and Working'!!). The shows labelled with (*) are the most intriguing to me, and could go either way.

The new season's Noitamina shows fail to excite me even though it is BONES and Production I.G. again. Much of that has to do with the current season's poor showing for those 2 studios; Usagi Drop was only slightly above average while I dropped No. 6 after a few episodes. This time round they have the advantage of better directors (Death Note, Aoi Bungaku, Fullmetal Alchemist, Gundam 00), so let's hope they turn things around for Noitamina.
