Another last-minute season preview from me (or is it?). Heh. So, here’s a rough list of anime that will be airing this Spring 2009. I might have missed a few others, but either way, here’s the information that I’ve been able to gather (listed in alphabetical order, by month). Some series will start airing in March, May or June, while most will be in April. As usual, batch lists of my first impressions will follow when the subs are released.

To the Spring 2009 anime preview list we go!

*Edit: (04/02/2009) Updated some air dates, including La Corda D’Oro ~secondo passo~ special episode 2.

Here I am, entering the new year with some lame updates… (^_^’).

As much as I love watching Bamboo Blade, I will no longer be able to continue doing episode summaries for it due to work taking most of my time. To satisfy your need of screencaps and summaries for this, I suggest you hop over to Totali’s blog for that. =)

I will continue with summaries of Shion no Ou and will most probably do that in batches of 2 or 3 episodes per post (ep. 4&5, 6&7, etc.) to make it a bit easier since I’ve been so backlogged with writing it. It will take a bit of time, though (and I think the series would be over by then, heh… I will never let myself be backlogged again!)

Im still short on the last 2 episode summaries of Seirei no Moribito but it’s certain that I will get to that one way or another (I started blogging it more than halfway through, but I still want to finish it off like how I did with Darker than Black and Lovely Complex). While I’m still watching it now and then, I will be officially dropping Hayate no Gotoku! from my blog list since I won”t manage to catch up writing that now that it’s all the way to episode 37 (I stopped at 25… @_@).

With regard to the Winter 2007/2008 line-up, I highly doubt that I’ll be picking up any new series to do episode summaries of since, again, work is taking most of my time (and life! >_<). However, I will still be sticking to writing anime overviews, so expect some new material soon. 🙂 If ever there’s a series that I can’t resist to write summaries of, it would most probably be a short series (12 to 13 episodes) or maybe one full course (24 to 26 episodes), but again, I highly doubt that at the time of writing this babble. On another note, first impressions of the Winter 2007/2008 series will once again be written in batches, like I did last Fall 2007.

Okies… that would be it for the update babbles for now. Eh, that was quite long, wasn’t it? ;P

 I just saw episode 33 of Hayate no Gotoku! and I simply couldn’t resist posting this bit of Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei parody.  I loved SZS so a little parody was amusing to see. I know I’m way late in relaying this news, but I’ll say it anyway… SZS will be having a second season come January 2008! I hope a sub group will stick with it through the season. I’m in so much despair with this news that I’m actually looking forward to watching it!  ^_^

HnG is still showing pretty random episodes, but ep 33 is a 2-part arc on the Culture Festival at the academy. Part 2 will be ep 34. I wonder if this is some sort of sign that they’d start showing story arcs again. My coverage of HnG kinda stopped at ep 25. My summaries will resume later on,  I think. Maybe I’ll just post it as a batch summary, like in batches of 5 from episode 25 to 30, and so forth… or something like that. I think I’ll get back on it when the randomness settles down a bit. It’s still funny though and I still enjoy watching it, I just can’t get myself to actually blog it episode by episode at this time.

Episode 25:  “Shake The Heart” (Kokoro o Yurashite)

Summary:  Picking up from last episode, Hayate is at Isumi’s house. He is extremely uneasy and worried since Nagi blurted out last time that she would sell Hayate to Isumi for 150,000,000 yen. Seeing Hayate in distress, Isumi pushes him. Hayate is surprised by this. Isumi says Hayate did not look very cheerful and she didn’t know what to do. Hayate, touched by Isumi’s concern, puts on a bright face and says she cheered him up and is feeling better now, thinking that all he can do here now is do his best.

Episode 23:  ” A Genius Teacher, Who is Not a Kid, Appears ” (Chibikko de wa nai Tensai Sensei Kitaru)

Summary:  It’s the new semester and Hayate is quite excited to go back to school. He tells Maria that he’s going to wake up Nagi but Maria says Nagi won’t be going to school since she caught a fever. In Nagi’s room, she calls Hayate and tells him she’s going to school. Hayate tells her she can’t since she’s sick but Nagi insists saying that school is only meant to be skipped when you’re in good health. Hayate dismisses this and tells her she must stay home and rest then tells her he would skip school too in order to nurse her back to good health. Nagi blushes but declines Hayate’s offer, telling him that one missed day for a transfer student like him is detrimental to a transfer student like him so he should go to school and not to worry about her.

 Episode 22:  ” Who Came Up With the Onomatopoeia “Kapo~n”? It’s Amazing” (Kapōn tte Gion wa Dare ga Kangaeta nda rō? Sugē yo ne)

Summary:  Nagi is bored since Hayate is always training for his ultimate move instead of spending the last few days of summer playing with her.  Klaus tries to cheer her up by donning a Hayate facemask but Nagi just brushes him off. Nagi decides to read some manga to pass the time. Hayate goes back inside the mansion after his training and Maria informs him that Nagi seems to be irritated that Hayate won’t spend some time with her.  Hayate learns that Nagi is in the library reading some manga so he tells Maria that he’ll go up to Nagi. Maria tells him not to bother since whenever Nagi finishes reading a manga, it influences her. As if on cue, Nagi runs down the stairs and invites Hayate to go fishing with her. Apparently, the manga she just finished reading was about fishing (entitled “I Love Fishing, Sanpei”).
