The new spring anime season is totally jam packed. I swear it’s a ploy to turn everyone into giant couch potatoes so that they can make even more money off of us, or maybe it’s some government funded operation to see how many anime shows the average person can watch in a single season. Well who knows, all I know is that I got a lot of watching to do and not nearly enough time to do it in. Who is with me on rallying for 36 hour days?

Well here goes my 2006 spring anime list in alphabetical order.

airgear
Air Gear: http://www.toei-anim.co.jp/tv/airgear/
Ah yes the new anime by Oh Great!
Air Gear is about a teenager named Ikki, your typical shounen punk hero who discovers a sport known as Air Treck (AT for short) and becomes immersed in it. Ikki, takes on some pretty tuff guys right off the bat and proves that he has some bad ass skills even though he is still just a n00b. With some spurring on from the super hot Simca and help from his sisters it looks as if Ikki is on his way up the ladder to become one of the top Storm Riders. (people who use Air Treck) Being a typical Oh Great anime you can expect tons of action and plenty of fan service. As usual if you want a decent story then read the manga, otherwise just don’t expect to much depth from the anime.
From what I have watched so far I can say that the animation is rather good and the story isn’t bad either, but best of all is the awesome scenes with Simca!

blacklagoon
Black Lagoon: http://www.blacklagoon.jp/
Black Lagoon has to be one of my favorite anime shows this season it just has this feel to it that leaves me always wanting to see more. (no its not just the hot girl but she sure doesn’t hurt ;) )
Black Lagoon is about a group of mercenaries (or outlaws what ever you prefer) and a Salary man that they happen to pick up on one of their missions. The two main characters are “Okajima Rokuro” the salary man and “Levi” the crazy gun wielding, killing machine, and uber hot babe. The story is based of the manga by the same name though I have yet to read it. The story more or less follows the lives of the mercenaries on their day-to-day missions; think Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex. The show really challenges today’s morals and perspective on what’s right or wrong, especially when Levi gets all psychological and talks about her dark past.
The animation is sleek and sexy some of the best stuff out there right now plus the story is really interesting especially as we learn more about Levi. Go watch it now! Or Levi might very well have something nasty in mind for you.

demonbane
Demonbane: http://www.demonbane.com/
Only seeing one ep I can’t say much about this show other then its nuts to the nth degree. Imagine if you will a loli/fantasy/sci-fi/mecha/romace/adventure/magical type show and there you have it “Demonbane.” Ok so for a real summary read this nice handy quote.
“Plot Summary: The story takes place in the world where both science and magic has advanced. Arkham City is a metropolises prospered by highly advanced magic. However it is threatened by a criminal syndicate Black Lodge. They set the Master Telion, who is the greatest wizard as well as the worst criminal, up as the leader, and they give free reign to their desire to rampage the city. Hado Family Group, the guardian of the city, makes a robot to beat Black Lodge. It is Demonbane.
Now, the battle between Demonbane and Mater Telion`s Black Lodge starts.”
All I have to say is think lots of hot girls and giant mecha what else do you need to know? XD

ergoproxy
Ergo Proxy: http://www.ergoproxy.com/
Ergo proxy…..all I can say is wow. The show is from Manglobe, if you don’t recognize the name you should because it’s from the same people who made Samurai Champloo, and if you haven’t seen Samurai Champloo stop what you are doing and go watch it now :P The show is about “Proxies” original eh? Basically Proxies are super beings with immense power and are starting a sort of revolution. Now to be cheap I will steal the rest of the description from ANN because I will end up spending the next hour writing my own crazy summary.
“Plot Summary: In a world where humans and androids, known as autoreivs, live in relative peace, there exists a domed city named “Romdeau”. Under the implementation of complete management control, it is a paradise where feelings are literally discarded, and the governing council dictates the way of life the citizens should live. But this utopian landscape is soon broken by a series of mystifying murders. Real Mayar, a female inspector from the Citizen Information Bureau, along with her autoreiv partner Iggy, are tasked to solve the murder cases. She is soon attacked by a creature drawn to her which is neither human nor android, and learns about the mysterious phenomena called “Awakening”, an event which draws her further into the case…and to the world beyond the limits of Romdeau.”
This is definitely in my top 3 favorite anime shows from this season. Ergo Proxy has rocking awesome animation, a great story, a super hot girl, and one very interesting guy. What more could you ask for? Ok I am a bit biased as I love dark and psychological themed shows and this happens to be the only one this season, but its still a great show so make sure not to miss out.

goodwitch
Good Witch of the West: http://www.project-westwitch.net/
Um don’t know much about this show yet as its still just sitting on my HD but it looks and sounds cool, that counts for something right?
“Plot Summary: On Filiel’s 15th birthday, she received her mother’s necklace as a memento from an obstinate astronomer Dee, her common and tedious life was turned into a life of conspiracies. With her new life, many adventures await.”

higurashi
Higurashi no Naku koro ni: http://www.oyashirosama.com/web/
Another show that is just sitting around waiting for me to watch it. From what I have seen and heard it reminds me of Elfen Lied, which I just happen to totally love so I though I would give it a try and hopefully I wont be disappointed.
“Plot Summary: On one hot summer day in 1983, a transfer student named Maebara Keiichi comes to a peaceful rural village in Hinamizawa. There, he befriends his classmates Rena, Mion, Rika, and Satoko. Accepted as a full-fledged member of the “club,” Keiichi and the gang plays all sorts of activities ranging from card and board games to hide-and-seek. People will remember that THIS was how playing used to be before the advent of video games. But just as Keiichi was beginning to be assimilated in simple rural life, he stumbles upon the dark history of Hinamizawa. Dam contruction project. Violent demonstrations. Kidnapping and extortion. ARM-AND-LEG DISMEMBERMENT MURDER. As Keiichi dives deeper into the mystery, he finds that his new found friends may not be all what they claim to be.”

inukami
Inukami!: http://www.inukami.jp/
This has to be one of the funniest anime shows this season and full of fanservice, but not like you are thinking because the fanservice is mostly of the main male character; talk about a twist. Inukami is all about Keita a “Inukami tamer” and his cute/sexy Inukami Yoko. The story line is fairly simple, Keita and Yoko are supposed to destroy evil spirits. Though, I said simple I should take it back because Keita and Yoko live together and Yoko is the “innocent” cute little girl; you know what I am talking about the “I act cute but am really a trouble maker” type. This makes for an interesting and funny show to say the least. That aside I do see some romance aspects in the show and can’t wait to see what happens between the two.
Overall, the anime is cute with a funny story and solid animation; that’s good enough for me to keep watching it. I should also mention Inu girls are super sexy, I love the tail! *goes to look for one*

jyu
Jyu-Oh-Sei: http://jyu-oh-sei.com/
To start off I thought this was going to be a yaoi story like Loveless, or something along those lines. I was completely and totally off to say the least.
Jyu-Oh-Sei is about Thor (and Rai his twin brother who doesn’t play much of a role) a kid who was abandoned on a planet called Chimera after seeing his dead parents. Talk about a happy start to a series. The planet is basically a big prison for criminals and to top it all off 99% of the plant life there is deadly, and likes to kill humans. The only way for Thor to get off the planet and avenge his parents is to become “Jyu-Oh-Sei” which is basically the ruler of the entire planet. All of that aside it’s actually a pretty good anime and not overly serious, but that is how most fantasy type anime shows are anyway.
I really like the animation it’s definitely some of the best out there right now. Also, the story seems pretty good so far and it has lots of potential to make for a really good show.


The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya: http://www.haruhi.tv/
Do I really need to say anything about this series? Everyone and their mother is watching it :P Ok the truth is that its 3am and I am tired and to lazy to write anymore so here is a nice little summary.
“Plot Summary: On the first day of high school a beautiful girl named Haruhi Suzumiya introduces herself as having “no interest in ordinary humans”. She asks for any aliens, time travelers, sliders or espers to join her. Watching her weird behaviour is Kyon a boy who sits in front of Haruhi and is the only person who talks to her. Commenting on Haruhi’s joining every club in school and then quitting Kyon unwittingly gives Haruhi an idea to start her own after school club. Thereafter Kyon and several others find themselves literally dragged into the Save our world by Overloading it with fun Suzumiya Haruhi’s Brigade (the S.O.S. Brigade for short).”
Yeah its about a crazy girl who can influence the enter universe or what not and her super crazy club. Just go watch it nothing can really explain the weird coolness that is The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

hostclub
Ouran High School Host Club: http://www.vap.co.jp/host/index.html
Another super funny anime! What makes it so? Cross dressers!!!!!! Yeah its got an interesting story to say the least.
OHSHC (the acronym is way to long and so is the title -_-) starts off by introducing you to the “Host Club” basically it’s a club for hot guys to entertain cute girls and make money while they are at it. No not like male hookers :P This is a nice super up scale school they are at, so by entertainment I mean tea parties and stuff like that. Yeah the hookers do sounds like more fun, but then this would turn into a hentai series and you would miss out on all the weird stuff the host club um hosts…yeah. Anyway, one day Haruhi the main characters walks into the host’s club room and breaks an $80,000 vase (who leaves things like that out in the open?) so of course the host club wants her to work the debt off. The thing is the host club guys don’t know that Haruhi is a girl.
I’ll leave the rest to your imagination it will be more funny that way trust me, now go watch it and laugh yourself into oblivion!

strawberrypanic
Strawberry Panic: http://www.strawberrypanic.com/
One word “yuri” and lots of it. Do I really need to say more?
Ok so for those of you that the single word yuri doesn’t make you jump to your feet and go watch it, I will explain some more. However, I must say if the “yuri” didn’t get you most likely none of this will either. Strawberry Panic is about an all girl school in what looks to be the middle of nowhere. (if this isn’t the perfect yuri setup I don’t know what is) Aoi Nagisa has just transferred to the school and runs into Hanazano Shizuma a.k.a Etoile who instantly takes an interest in Aoi. Now Etoile is schools president and everyone lovers her. This makes for an interesting relationship to say the least. Basically the story thus far is just about different girls hooking up with each other and some dark secrett that involves Etoile.
The last ep was especially nice ;) finally something more then a tiny kiss! XD Yep that’s all I am going to say so if you like yuri or cute romance stories check out Strawberry Panic.

Side Note: I should technically be saying Shoujo-ai but yuri is so much easier.

the third
The Third ~Aoi Hitomi no Shoujo~: http://www.wowow.co.jp/anime/third/
Sword fighting+loli=The Third. Yep that is what I got out of ep one, needless to say I really need to catch up on it. So far it looks cute and somewhat interesting but nothing strikes me as amazing yet, so I don’t know if I will continue to watch this or not. I shall see what the next couple eps have in store. Here is the summary.
“In the distant future, because of an interplanetery war that has continued on for centuries, the civilizations were ruined. Human beings have lost everything, and only 1/5th of the population survived. Pseudo-human, “The Third”, is said to have appeared just after the war. They have red pupils called “Space Eyes”. Using them, they can control computer systems and so on, and rule the world by their superior power.
In this world, there is a girl, Honoka; She is a jack-of-all-trades, and she accepts any order except murder. One day, she happens to find a young Ikus in the desert. When she accepts the order from him, her great adventure begins.”

tokko
Tokko: http://www.wowow.co.jp/anime/tokko/
Toru Fujisawa, yeah the guy who did GTO and Rose Hip Rose well this is his new anime based of off his manga by the same name.
Tokko is about a guy named Shindo who lost his parents in a huge disaster when he was a kid. Shindo, has just recently become an investigator for Tokko when he runs into a weird group of people called “The Special Public Safety Task Force.” During this time appears a monster who is on a brutal rampage killing lost of people. When Shindo encounters this monster he finds out the he has special powers and that the monsters have to do with his parent’s death as well as the huge disaster from when he was a kid. So as expected Shindo joins the task force and is on a mission to avenge his parents and find out more on the monsters that are going around killing people.
So far the show is rather interesting and the animation is decent but its nothing real special, hopefully it will pick up soon otherwise I would say stick to the manga.

witchblade
Witchblade: http://www.witchblade.jp/
Another show I am behind on. T_T
Anyway, Witchblade is about..well its about Witchblade what else can I say? Masane Amou a.k.a. Witchblade comes to Tokyo, looses her daughter, ends up in jail, breaks out, goes looking for her daughter, and is then taken down by some secret organization. That sums up ep one. I should also say that Masane Amou has no idea she is Witchblade yet and freaks out when she is transforming into her, but I do have to say the transformation is quite nice ;)
The animation looks great plus the story seems promising I’ll just have to wait and see on this one.

zegapain
Zegapain: http://www.zegapain.net/top.html
Ah the only pure mecha show this season I don’t know if I am glad or sad about that or maybe both.
Zegapain is about Kyo your normal high school kid who has a thing for swimming. One day he runs into a new hot student named Shizuno who tells him he has to save the world. With her help he pilots a giant mecha called Zegapain in what appears to be a virtual world. However, the virtual world might not be fake after all and the “normal” world he knows might not be exactly what he though either. No matter what’s going on though Kyo is going to give it all he’s got and make sure the machines that are taking over pay. Zegapain reminds me a lot of Sosei no Aquarion with the whole ” I am a crazy awesome mecha pilot who has been reborn.” I really liked Sosei no Aquarion, so hopefully it will be just as enjoyable.
The animation is pretty good but the CG could be a bit better thankfully the characters look good and the story seems interesting thus far.

Well there it is my super longs list of shows to watch this season. Might I add that I am still watching Blood+ and Eureka 7. Talk about overkill T_T Now for the ones that I will actually be blogging.

Air Gear
Black Lagoon
Blood+
Ergo Proxy
Jyu-Oh-Sei
Witchblade
Zegapain
And maybe Demonbane or Tokko

So keep an eye out for upcoming super awesome, crazy cool, and sexy post by me on those series. xD Now that it’s officially 4am and I have written some 2000 words :P I think I shall call it a night and post this up in the morning when I have time to add some pics. SeVIIn out!

Thanks to: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com, http://anidb.info, and http://www.animenfo.com/ for some of the descriptions.
