What follows is part IV of the Basugasubakuhatsu Spring 2006 Anime Preview. I think this is the last part, unless someone lets me know any anime they want me to preview. Then a part V could possibly be made.
Strawberry Panic! is about three all girl’s schools where men are totally not allowed. It’s been described sort of as a cross between Sister Princess (sister harem) and Maria-Sama ga Miteru (school yuri). Will I be watching this show? Heck yes!
Kamisama Kazoku translates to “God Family.” Basically, the main character is the son in a family of gods. He always gets what he wants (because his parents are gods) and so I suppose he becomes really lazy. Apparently he meets a girl and decides to get her without any divine intervention. I wonder what the deal is with the popularity of all of these “I’m a god” shows. Kamichu! Shuffle! (to a degree, right?) and now this. Still, the plot seems pretty interesting.
Kiba seems to be a failry generic story about a boy named Zedd, a “Shadow Caster.” He can use his Shadow to fight other Shadow Casters with magic and summoned animals (like pokemon?). This show really looks generic and boring, but other people seem to be looking forward to it. I’ll give it a quick look if it gets subbed.
The anime description for Simoun is just plain weird. I really don’t know how I feel about watching an anime that involves fighter pilot girls who are going to choose to be male or female adults… Having said that, the art looks pretty neat, and it’s definitely a unique plot. I am also weak against girls in goggles (they’re like a form of megane), so watch this anime I will.
