I’ve been so swamped with work these past few weeks, but I finally found the time to blog again (just in time for spring! hurray~). So, here’s a rough list of anime that will be airing this Spring 2010 season. I’ve been eagerly waiting for this season because of a certain couple of series~ ^_^

I skipped the first impressions for winter, but I *think* I might manage to make a batch list of it again this time after I’ve seen the first episodes.

Anyway, here’s the information I’ve been able to gather (listed in alphabetical order). All of the series in this list will start airing this April.

Synopsis: Fumihiko Matsumaru is an average salaryman with no girlfriend. He invited his colleague Ms. Tanaka to a movie but was stood up. Right at the time he was about to toss tickets into a trash can, a cute girl appeared and asked him not to waste those two tickets. After movie and dinner, he escorted her home and found they live in the same neighborhood, yet unfortunately her apartment caught on fire hours later. Having nowhere else to stay, rookie seiyuu Aka Onda moved to Matsumaru’s place, and the two had started a “more than friends but not yet lovers” relationship under the same roof while keeping this secret from their employers. (from: ANN)

Genre: Romance, comedy, drama
Status: Anime – completed, 9 episodes + 1 DVD-only episode (Feb to Mar 2006)
Manga – ongoing (10 volumes as of 01/2010)
Age rating: The anime contains some mature content (nudity, suggestive scenes and dialogue, and the like), but I heard the manga does indeed contain mature content (R-18?)

Thoughts / Review: The OP was your typical upbeat tune, though it did sound a bit different than the usual ones on similar types of series. It was done by SHAFT, so there were some touches of their unique visual style/elements present here and there. It has 9 episodes in total plus an extra DVD episode. Each episode is just approximately 12 minutes long (or short, however you wish to refer to it), so I managed to finish it in one sitting.

Heh, like the season 1 final episode, this is probably one of my longest posts as well. My final impression of this series is noted at the end. =)

Episode 12: “The Ark of Stars” (series finale)

SUMMARY: Suou finds Shion knocked down on the ground in a room inside the Gate. Shion says it’s because he paid the amount necessary for his remuneration, then asks Suou to take him outside because he wants to see the moon. Yin, who’s clad in black, is humming a creepy tune while sitting on a rock in a flowery field, surrounded by a bunch of observation spectres (and contractor spirits?).

I got too caught up with work and the holiday season and almost skipped out on this. Anyway, here’s a rough list of anime that will be airing this Winter 2009/2010 season. It looks a bit dreary, but there are a few titles that caught my fancy.

This is far from a complete list of all the shows that will air this season, but either way, here’s the information I’ve been able to gather (listed in alphabetical order, by month). Most of the series in this list will start airing on January, while some on February and March 2010.
