July 2009 New Anime Guide


Well, July is coming and I guess most of you cannot wait for the next Anime flood to be released. Some intro below via Wikipedia.

Canaan / カナン (13eps)

Official website: http://www.canaan.jp/

I’ve mentioned about this Anime produced by TYPE-MOON a couple of months ago. Guess it should be the biggest bomb this month (anyway, all TYPE-MOON products are great). For sure, this is a MUST WATCH!

Canaan is an anime television series, conceptualized by Type-Moon co-founders Kinoko Nasu and Takashi Takeuchi, based on the scenario that they created for the Nintendo Wii visual novel 428: FÅ«sasareta Shibuya de, which is noted for being one of the few games to be have been awarded a perfect score by games publication Famitsu.


Spice and Wolf 2 / 狼と香辛料2 (13eps)

Official website: http://www.spicy-wolf.com/

I think there’s no need for introduction. Second season of series. This is a another MUST WATCH Anime in July. Check out more on the series on Wikipedia.


Princess Lover! / プリンセスラバー! (13eps)

Official website: http://www.prilover.tv/

Remember that we talked about this Anime Princess Lover about the quality? Cannot see any improvement but still have a chance to be acceptable. Check out the previous post for more information.


Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 / 東京マグニチュード8.0 (11eps)

Official website: http://tokyo-m8.com/

Every body knows that Japan gets a lot of earthquakes. There’re about 1000 earthquakes every year in Japan (yes, it’s true). Thanks to the government Japan does have a series of ways to handle earthquakes otherwise people won’t be able to live here and watch Anime and Drama everyday. The Anime is similar towards a PSP game Zettai Zetsumei Toshi 3 (絶体絶命都市3 壊れゆく街と彼女の歌, official website) which also talks about earthquakes and has a beautiful theme song. Highly recommended.

The series is set in Tokyo after an earthquake measuring 8.0 magnitude on the Richter scale shakes the city’s foundations and landscape, resulting in the Tokyo Tower, Rainbow Bridge and other noted landmarks falling. It will follow siblings Mirai and Yutaka, who were visiting a robot exhibition on Odaiba on the occasion of their summer holidays having just begun, as they struggle to reach their mother in their house in Setagaya, assisted by a female motorcycle deliverer named Mari.


Yoku Wakaru Gendai Mahou / よくわかる現代魔法 (12eps)

Official website: http://www.gendaimahou.com/

A new interesting story is introduced.

Morishita Koyomi (voiced by Nonaka Ai): A bumbling first year high school student who has the body of a child. Since she’s only 146 cm (4 ft 9 1/2 in) tall, she’s often mistaken for a elementary school student when she is wearing her own clothes. She gets lousy grades, is not very athletic, and doesn’t really have anything about herself to brag about, so she decides to go a magic school that she saw in a flyer in order to change herself. She has the unusual ability of being able to take any code (spell) and changing it into a gold washtub summoning code. This ability has gradually been improving. She, at first, could only summon a copper washtub, then an iron one, and then a silver one.

Another series from the same author 07th Expansion who created Higurashi no Naku Koroni (When They Cry, ひぐらしのなく頃に). Guess this time will still be bloody. Check out Wikipedia for more about the story.

We have 5 girls to form a club like Bamboo Blade, we have nine LOLIs to form a baseball club ^^. Taishō Baseball Girls. is a popular light novel series written by Atsushi Kagurasaka (神楽坂 淳).

The first book in the series begins in Taishou 14 (1925) with Koume (小梅), the 14-year-old daughter of a Western-style restaurant owner, who commutes back and forth to an girl’s academy. One day during the commute, she is having a conversation with her friend who everyone calls “Young Miss” (お嬢, Ojou). They decide to form an all-girl baseball team and have a match with a boys team. While the first volume can be read as a stand-alone work, the second volume does continue the story.
