Spring 2009: Your Expectations and Anticipated Series (was: Spring 2009 releases!)
Spoiler for The chart but without OVA/ONA:

Sadly no yuri shows for me.I certainly avoid all video game adaptations unless they have good first impressions. I also worried that 07-Ghost is a yaoi show like Yami no Matsuei, marriage between dark + yaoi.

Shadow Kira01 2009-02-07 02:57

Based on this list, I am most looking forward to...

Asura Cryin'
Eden of the East
Hayate no Gotoku 2
Natsu no Arashi
Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom
Tayutama: Kiss on my Deity
Tears to Tiara
Valkyria Chronicles

Mushi 2009-02-07 04:11

Looking forward to:

Asura Cryin'
Polyphonica Crimson S

Curious about:

Winter Sonata
Natsu no Arashi

But I'll also be watching for comments and impressions from others, since I haven't got a clue what most of these are about. :p

Fullmetal Alchemist and Hayate no Gotoku are my most expected series this Spring. Loved their first series, so I can't wait for more.


Haruhi and DBZ, can't wait to watch them in HD greatness.

New Series
  • Cross Game: Touch is one of my favourites old series, so I'm really looking forward to Adachi's latest series.
  • K-ON!: Looking forward to it as a fan of KyoAni.
  • Hatsukoi Limited: New series from the creator of Ichigo 100%. I'm already hyped!
  • Eden of the East: I don't have many references about this one, but every Production IG series are worth to watch.
  • Valkyria Chronicles: The game was awesome, and the story really hooked me up, so the anime should deliver for fans of the game no doubt.

Not too sure
  • Phantom: I like some Bee Train series but sometimes they are so repetitive and dull.
  • Natsu no Arashi: I read the first volume of the manga because School Rumble is one of my favourites mangas, but I didn't like it that much, maybe the anime will be better.
  • Shangri-La: Maybe the good series from Gonzo next season? :heh:

Satsuki Yuuhi Ramius 2009-02-07 05:47

Anime that i will watch
Full Metal Alchemist
La Corda D'oro 2nd season
Hayate no Gotoku 2nd season
Sengoku Basara
Tears To Tiara
Natsu no Arashi!

Westlo 2009-02-07 06:21

Let's see...

Full Metal Alchemist Remake - Definitely watching this, will be interesting too see how Bones approach the start.
Shangri-La - Gonzo have been putting out some decent shows lately and this looks like being one they are going to put a lot of effort into.
K-ON! - Yeah I'll give it a few episodes.
Eden of the East - It's Kamiyama Kenji and Production I.G, need I really say anymore?
Valkyria Chronicles - Played a lot of the game, this could be made into a decent anime easily and A-1 Pictures are a studio on the rise.
Pandora Hearts - Liked what I've read of the manga and looking forward to this, Kujira's music should suit this.
Queen's Blade - Guilty pleasure show of the season.
Tears to Tiara - Enjoyed Uta and this looks like being a more fun along the same lines, Octavia ftw!
Tayutama - Should be my harem fix for the season.
Basquash! - Trailer was stylish as fuck, will watch a few episodes.

Sheba 2009-02-07 08:13

Will check:

FMA Remake

Cobra (Cobra + Madhouse)


Guin Saga

Valkyria Chronicles (wait. Wasn't A1 the studio that made Kannagi?)

Cautious about:


Guilty Pleasure:

Queen's Blade

jsieczkar 2009-02-07 15:18

Sounds good:
Eden of the East
Rainbow Nisha

Not sure but will try:
Winter Sonata
Hanasekeru Seihounen

0utf0xZer0 2009-02-07 16:20

I'm really looking forward to Tayutama, since I'm an animal-ears fanboy and so much of the promo material I've seen for the franchise looks so incredibly moe:

I'll probably take my usually approach of watching anything from studios I've liked in the past (Kyoto, SHAFT, A1, JC Staff, etc.) until word of mouth starts pouring in. Then I'll decide what to pick up. I do have to admit I'm also looking forward to Natsu no Arashi because it's by Shaft AND the mangaka from School Rumble. Also, the Fullmetal Alchemist remake just because I've heard so many good things about the original.

Kafriel 2009-02-08 16:11

I'm definitely watching FullMetal alchemist and Pandora hearts...I don't know much about the other ones but I also got Kurokami and Toradora running, so I'll limit myself to those and check again once they're over.

C.A. 2009-02-08 16:16

I'll probably be taking on the following if I have time:

Sengoku Basara
Queen's Blade

UOU! Wait a second: this might sound rather ignorant but will we be getting HD DragonBall Z? If so: DO WANT! :|

Still, looking at the list I see quite some series I want to follow, especially the FMA remake.

Yea we're waiting for the HD Dragonball Z.

They announced a Dragonball Z remastered with latest animation technology.

Sorrow-K 2009-02-08 18:12

You know what I already find refreshing about the upcoming season, even before a single episode has aired: there's not such a ridiculous number of sequels this season. That's the first time it's been like that for a while.

I don't know enough about the upcoming crop to finalize my list yet, but there are few titles that are already certainties, like FMA and Hayate no Gotoku 2. And I'll definitely be watching Natsu no Arashi to see if Kobayashi has learnt any lessons from his previous outing, and can actually write a worthwhile story to go along with his fantastic characters. (School Rumble summed up in four words: brilliant characters, awful story).

-Sho- 2009-02-08 18:36

Its all the anime in spring or there will be some more ? V1 = Version 1 so there will be a V2 ? (dunno )

Also , for me it will be :

Sure :

Hayate no gotoku S2 (Hilarious and i want to know what will happens to Hayate )
Cobra (i saw the 2 first oav :) )
Shinkyoku Soukai (but its a remake no ?i heard it is)
Queen's Blade (well its for the eichi i guess )

Try :

Basquash (promising maybe )
Tears to Tiara
Hatsukoi Gentei
Sengoku Basara (like Dynasty warrior huh )
Natsu no Arachi
Phantom ( promising maybe )
Pandora Hearts

Its all . So no Black Lagoon S3 this spring ? ouch .

Lostdreams 2009-02-08 18:37

I will certainly be watching
Winter Sonata
Might be watchings
Hatsukoi Genkai
Pandora Hearts
Tears to Tiara
Shinkyoku Sinkai

cerrian 2009-02-08 19:09

Stuff that I would watch right off the bat:

Eden of the East
Pandora Hearts
RAINBOW Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin - this one has some serious potential based on the brief summary. I'm curious to know who's behind the wheel for this project.
Hanasekeru Seishounen
Natsu no Arashi

Stuff that I'll probably check on halfway into the season:
Winter Sonata
Tears to Tiara - I don't know about this one. Tales of the Abyss has left me with a very bad taste in my mouth as far as RPG/game anime goes.
Senjou no Valkyria

One thing I was hoping to see was a romance series, but nothing really stood out. Hopefully there's a couple romantic hidden gems in next season's line up.

uis 2009-02-08 21:51

Stuff that i sure watch

Natsu no Arashi
Fullmetal Alchemist
Hayate no Gotoku 2
Pandora Heart
Tears of Tiara
Senjou no Valkyria
SSP Crimson S

Might be watch:-

Winter Sonata

I hope 07-Ghost great or i will be upset if manga great... anime not...
That Hatsukoi Limited forgot... I will watch it...

Dremora 2009-02-08 22:57

Likely to watch~
Pandora Hearts Ė The trailer is awesome; it inspired me to read the manga. The manga is decent, but itís much too fast paced. If the anime slows it down Iíll be happy.
Shangri-La Ė Plot synopsis sounds great and I love earthy settings --- hopefully Gonzo wonít blow it, itís about time they put out something quality.
Eden of the East Ė Plot summary is meh, but IG is behind it and thatís enough to get me interested.
Basquash Ė Trailer rocks.
FMA Ė Wasnít the first series a faithful adaptation for like.. the first 12 or so episodes? If so there is going to be a lot of retreading. Anyway, definitely going to follow it all the way.

Will give a chance~

Phantom Ė Trailer is so-so, sort of Noir-esque. I like what Iíve read about it, but Iím on the fence.
Guin Saga
Winter Sonata

Ascaloth 2009-02-09 02:25

Picking up

K-On! (Kyoto Animation): Oh, c'mon, you can see me picking this up from a mile away. ^_^

Natsu no Arashi (SHAFT): Interesting premise coupled with the possibility of Shinbou-WTFness? I'm in.

Checking out

Winter Sonata (Real Thing): Haha, this is my mom's favourite Korean drama. Not exactly mine, but I'm intrigued as to how this adaptation is gonna play out.

Hatsukoi Gentei (J.C. Staff): May turn out to be a good slice-of-life. Let's just hope J.C. Staff doesn't screw up on this one.
