October 2009 New Anime Guide


New New Animes have arrived and the post seems a little bit late to arrive whatsoever, guess I was just lazy :) Back to the topic, the overall releases seem quite nice and there’re some of them really worth out expectation. Several Animes have already on air and you might have already watched them. But never mind, here we go.


To Aru Kagaku no Railgun / とある科学の超電磁砲 (13 episodes)


Guess this will be the hottest Anime of fall. A side story of Anime To Aru Majutsu no Index. No more description is needed.

Compared with Index in To Aru Majutsu no Index (とある魔術の禁書目録), I personally like Mikoto Misaka (御坂 美琴) much more. Check out the OP only my railgun by fripSide. The OP will be released on Nov 4, remember to check it out. And now, listen to it online.


Kämpfer / けんぷファー (12 episodes)


The story seems interesting and the character design is so far acceptable. Will look into and decide whether to keep on watching.

Kämpfer (けんぷファー) is a Japanese light novel series by Toshihiko Tsukiji, with illustrations by Senmu. The story revolves around Natsuru Senō, a normal high school boy. One day he wakes up to find himself turned into a girl. A stuffed tiger “Harakiri Tora” comes to life and tells him to fight as a female psychic fighter “Kämpfer”. Having no idea about what’s going on, Natsuru is involved in the battles against other female Kämpfer. (via Wikipedia)


Nyan Koi! / にゃんこい! (12 episodes)


Another new Anime of October. Seems quite interesting in the story. The first episode has been released, it may be as good as you think.

Junpei Kōsaka is a second-year high school student who despises cats and has an allergy to them. It just so happens that his high school crush is Kaede Mizuno, a girl who adores cats. One day, while walking home from school, Junpei kicks an empty can and unfortunately beans the local neko-jizō-sama (guardian deity of cats). He finds he can now understand what cats are saying, including his family’s own ill-tempered cat, Nyamusasu. However, if he does not grant 100 wishes from cats, he will turn into cat himself. (via ANN)


Asura Cryin’ 2nd Season / アスラクライン (13 episodes)


Second season of Anime Asura Cryin’ (actually I haven’t finished watching the first season, just leave them to some day later).

Story: Tomo was a school kid with just one problem: he had a ghost friend for a while. One day, his life is turned upside down as his world changes into a new one, one which he couldn’t imagine before.


Tegami Bachi / Letter Bee / テガミバチ (13 episodes)


New Anime of this month. Very good Character Voice staff but not sure the rest of them.

The story takes place in the land of AmberGround, a place of perpetual night only partially illuminated by an artificial sun. Lag Seeing works as a “Letter Bee” (delivery boy) at the “Bee Hive” (a delivery service), with his Dingo, Niche, and her “pet”, Steak, traveling with him. He is entrusted with the “hearts” of everyone in AmberGround to deliver their packages. (via Wikipedia)


Seiken no Blacksmith / 聖剣の刀鍛冶 (12 episodes)


Think this is a good Anime, kind of being to Sword and Magic type. The characters are well designed and the overall quality seems fine. Will have further report after it on air.


InuYasha / 犬夜叉 (26 episodes)


Actually when I heard about this, I was shocked. What? Inuyasha? Is it an April Fool? No, definitely not. The series is going to the end in the next 26 episodes coming (not sure about the Manga). Suddenly I started to miss it and wonder when Conan, Naruto, Bleach and One Piece came to an end :)


Seitokai no Ichizon / 生徒会の一存 (13 episodes)


Actually I don’t have much interests in this kind of story. The pattern is that the story is quite boring but the girls are quite attractive. Not sure about this one. Will find out.


Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu 2nd Season / 乃木坂春香の秘密 (12 episodes)


Second season of the series. Again, never watched the first season before thus I don’t have much to say about this. Any comments?


11eyes: Tsumi to Batsu to Aganai no Shoujo / 11eyes -罪と罰と贖いの少女- (12 episodes)


A famous Galgame made into the Anime.

Satsuki Kakeru lost his sister by suicide and has been living a dull life ever since then. One day, he is transported into a bizarre world “Red Night” along with his friend Minase Yuka. In order to survive and escape from Red Night, he fights against Dark Spirits (Ralva) and Black Nights.


Kobato. / こばと。 (24 episodes)


Original manga by Clamp. Kinda looking forward to watch this series and don’t know why. Check out the content and you might know the reason.

Kobato is sweet and perky girl, but also extremely naive about the world around her. She has a “mission”, which is to fill a mysterious bottle of hers with the suffering from people’s hearts so her wish to go a certain place that she desires to go can be granted. However, she has a restriction, she is not allowed to fall in love with any person whom she heals the heart of.


Kimi ni Todoke / From Me to You / 君に届け (12 episodes)


This is originally a very nice Manga and it’s highly recommended. Though typically a Shoujo Manga type but the story is interesting and worth keep on reading.

Kimi ni Todoke is about a girl named Kuronuma Sawako. She is nicknamed Sadako (from the ring) because many people see her as strange and often mistake her for a ghost. A boy called Kazehaya kun becomes her friend and, to her, is “100% refreshness.” Kuronuma Sawako’s one wish in life is to make friends. That’s a difficult proposition when everyone who meets her cowers in terror. She admires her classmate, Kazehaya-kun, a popular, easygoing and 100% refreshing guy who is nice with everyone, even with her. (via ANN)


Sasameki Koto / ささめきこと (12 episodes)


The story, mainly set in a co-ed school, revolves around Sumika Murasame, a 15 year-old girl who is secretly in love with her female best friend, Ushio Kazama. Ushio likes girls too, but she’s only into cute girls, while Sumika is tall, good at sports and she has a cool personality.


Fairy Tail / フェアリーテイル (18 episodes)


Lucy is a 16-year-old girl, who wants to be a full-fledged mage. One day when visiting Harujion Town, she meets Natsu, a young man who gets sick easily by any type of transportation. But Natsu isnt just any ordinary kid, he’s a member of one of the world’s most infamous mage guilds: Fairy Tail.

Lucy is a 17-year-old girl, who wants to join a mage guild to become a full-fledged mage. One day, Natsu, a young man who is looking for the salamander and his talking cat Happy meets Lucy and help her get out of a sticky situation. That’s when she find out that Natsu not only is a mage, but is also a member of one of the world’s most infamous mage guilds…Fairy Tail. (via ANN)


DARKER THAN BLACK 流星の双子 / ジェミニ (12 episodes)


Two years have passed since Hei and Yin escaped the Syndicate after the events of the first season. Making their way to Russia, Hei encounters a young girl named Suou Pavlichenko, whose family is gradually pulled into the war between contractors and various intelligence factions.
