As Hinano stated, Mamoru-kun ni Megami no Shukufuku wo! is the anime that really confused all of us at the Anime Nano Podcast. The seemingly Lilliputian size of the green-haired kid coupled with the giant girl in that promo picture made us all give a collective WTF?

Speaking of the Kanon Remake…

Kanon Popularity.jpg

It’s totally beating every other Fall 2006 anime into the ground! The anime series popularity tag cloud thing that I implemented on Anime Nano shows how many times a series has been written about in the past 2 weeks. Kanon has already been mentioned 66 (make that 67) times! That’s almost 5 posts a day!

I’m guessing this anime is gonna be waaaay popular. Maybe even more popular than The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi… I for one welcome our uber-moe overlords. Uguu~

Kanon was one of the first anime that I watched when I started out way back around 2001. It was on every list of “must see anime” and I have a feeling it still is on a lot of lists today.

D.Gray-man is another one of the shounen anime out this season. I guess it’s supposed to be one of the more popular series. Death Note, another shounen anime, actually ended up looking pretty good. Can D.Gray-man escape the lameness that most shounen shows exhibit?

Di Gi Charat Calendar.jpg

Just recently, Broccoli Books sent me a bunch of anime calendars to review. I don’t typically review calendars on my blog, but these ones are anime themed! I got two wall calendars: Disgaea and Samurai Champloo. I also got two desk calendars: DiGi Charat and Juvenile Orion.
