Winter 2007 Anime Preview Part 2

So apparently, the anidb list that I used for the first part of the Winter 2007 Anime Preview was overly optimistic. I guess I should’ve been wary when I saw so many shows premiering on January 1st… I’ll just use Moetron’s list for the rest of my posts.

Saint October


An orphan, a pop idol, and a mysterious girl walk into a bar… Well, subtract the bar and you have the cast of Saint October. The plot seems to involve stopping the end of the world and solving the mysteries of an amnesiac. There’s not much to say about that, but the character designs look decent. This is a “might check out” if the season is really slow.

Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora


Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora features a girl dreaming of a prince to whisk her away from the land of Academia, literally! There’s a city called Academia, and it’s a giant university! Despite the main character being a girl, the source manga is a shounen magazine. I guess it’s the cute girls and the mecha… It doesn’t really seem like my bag, but I’ll probably watch the first episode anyway.

Les Misérables: Shoujo Cosette


This is just an anime version of Les Misérables. Amazingly, I never had to read the book in school, so I don’t know anything about the plot. I guess I’ll just skip the book and check out the anime. Les Mis is supposed to be the best book/musical ever, so I should probably experience it in one form or another. Anime it is!

Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight


Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight looks like a super moe version of Strawberry Marshmallow. If that’s possible. I am a connoisseur of moe (but not a lolicon!), so this anime looks awesome. I have a feeling the language will be pretty simple too, so I might be able to watch this anime raw.

Master of Epic


Master of Epic sounds like a really dumb name, and there’s a 99% chance they came up with it so that the acronym would be “moe.” Also, this anime is based on an MMORPG, so my expectations are not too high. This will have a spot on my “do not watch” list.

Hung about your previous part, the shows u checked up on Anidb…did you actually check the dates by going into the detailed section? it says that the release date is xx.xx.2007 or something like that. Anidb just puts it at january because they dont know the real release

Yeah, I had been doing that with the other previews, just going down the list and looking at the shows. I didn’t really pay attention to the dates or anything, since they all were in “January.”

Saint October – Nah.

Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora – Do not want.

Les Mis̩rables: Shoujo Cosette РDefinitely looking forward to this.

Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight – Nope.

Master of Epic – As one of my net buddies said “Why does one of the characters look like a giant sentient turd?” Seriously, the initials spell “MOE.” Keep it away.

Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora might be good because they have characters from Kannaduki no Miko! That’s the only reason i’m watching it =)

Hmmm, I never actually saw Kannazuki no Miko. So does that make Kyoshiro to Towa no Sora a spinoff or something? I believe that Kannazuki no Miko was licensed, so I wonder if this will be too.

“Les Mis is supposed to be the best book/musical ever, so I should probably experience it in one form or another.” I’ve seen the musical twice, so I think it’s really good. It’ll be very interesting to watch this animated.

I’ve been in the musical Les Miz. I’ll definately give at least the first episode a try, but I’m kind of skeptical since the title has ‘shoujo Cosette’ in the title. She’s my least favourite of the Les Miz musical heroines; beautiful, tragic past, doesn’t really do anything.
