Summer 2007 Anime Preview! Part 4!

In which Hung previews Sky Girls, Potemayo, and Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni Kai.

Sky Girls


Why do loli girls always make the best mecha pilots? I never saw the original OVA. Some people might find the whole mecha musume thing to be cute, but I think it’s kinda creepy. I actually think I remember watching part of the OVA, actually. But it was creepy, as I recall.



At first glance, Potemayo looks like a kid’s show. But I checked the story section of the website, and there’s a ton of kanji! From what I could read, it seems to be about a middle schooler’s love triangle?

The main deal maker for me is that this anime is being done by J.C. Staff, which is my favorite studio. The designs look pretty neat and colorful. So I’ll watch this, probably even if it doesn’t get subbed.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai


This is a continuation of the original Higurashi no Naku Koro Ni anime, which is licensed now. I never actually finished watching the original series, though it had me interested for a while. The resets got old.

I do give Higurashi props for making a pun for it’s second series, though.

I agree J.C. Staff is my favorite studio! Zero no tsukaima, shakugan no shana, and all that other goodness.
