And it’s FINAL: The Otaku’s Blog Winter 2010/2011 Anime List

At last, we’re nearly there. With this, The Otaku’s Blog will finally be complete, freed from its ‘UNDER CONSTRUCTION’ status (at least for now) :D That means MORE UPDATES and MORE BLOGS on the latest animes and mangas will be published very soon. YESSS!

For starters, let’s see what our staff has got to say about the 2010/2011 Winter Anime List. (Yes, I know. It’s a bit late but hey, considering the fact that this blog only started less than 3 days ago, I reckon we’ve managed to handle it pretty well. )

Haiyoru! Nyaru-ani: Remember My Mr. Lovecraft
Release Date:
December 10, 2010
Animation Production:
DLE Inc.
Website: Nyaruani JP
Genre:
Comedy, Sci-fi
Summary: The story centers around Nyaruko, a formless Cthulhu deity who can take on the shape of a seemingly ordinary silver-haired girl. Mahiro Yasaka is a normal high school who is chased by aliens one night, until Nyaruko saves him.
Trailer: Here’s an example from its promo DVD.

Impressions:
Serenata:
LMAO It’s another K-ON! The comedy’s so similiar XD Wells, seeing as how the anime’s already out, I might give it a shot. Though after having learnt my lesson with TNC (whose trailer was more favourable for me than its anime), I can’t say for sure it’ll be as funny as it seems. Either ways, I’ll see how it goes.
Jacqivarius: They soiled the good name of Lovecraft, ruined by the remnants of the moe bang. I refuse to watch this.
Baka-Neko:
in K-ON context, the guy = MIO the girl = RITSU.
Mio: Thats enough. *BANG*
Ritsu: Q.Q what was that for …
in other words , it reminds me of a certain someone ;) *all arrows point to yui*

Starry☆Sky
Release Date:
December 23, 2010
Animation Production:
Studio DEEN
Website:
Starry Sky JP
Genre:
Romance, Shoujo, Reverse Harem
Summary:
The heroine, Tsukiko, enrolled to a school that was recently changed from all-boys school to co-ed. Since the area where the school is conveniently rural and the rather exclusive curriculums the school has, up until now the heroine is the only one female who enrolled to the school.
Trailer: I’ve no idea whether this is from the game or the anime. Meh.

Impressions:
Serenata:
Saw the first ep. WAS SHIT AS. No plot, therefore no character development, therefore NO GOOD ROMANCE. Studio DEEN, you’ve let me down. In the least, Hakuouki had a more decent and actual storyline. Oh, and did I say it only runs for less than 12 mins?
Jacqivarius:
It’s like a harem anime for girls? With only 12 minute episodes and no plot, it isn’t going to last very long. The bishies aren’t going to save it.
Baka-Neko:
12 min only… D: no action? no plot? what the hell are we supposed to do .. ? staring at my fish for 2 hours is far more interesting than that >__> . Atleast ONE Killing Scene pleasse ~ 

Rio – Rainbow Gate
Release Date: January 4, 2010
Animation Production: XEBEC
Website: Rainbow Gate
Genre: Looks like ecchi, tad bit of action, but mostly gambling (if that’s a genre?)
Trailer: PV

Impressions:
Serenata:
Judging from the trailer, it doesn’t look all that bad, except for the ecchi. I’ll give it a go.
Jacqivarius: This looks like Saki but with gambling. I’m sure that Rio’s “hot bod” will garner some viewership but I’m not interested.
Baka-Neko: reading from them , i believe that it is ecchi and i’m not gunna go anywhere near it.

Kimi ni Todoke 2nd Season
Release Date:
January 4, 2010
Animation Production: Production I.G
Website: NTV Kimi Ni Todoke JP
Genre: Comedy, Romance, Shoujo
Summary: Continuation of season 1. Will most likely follow the manga again.
Trailer: PV

Impressions:
Serenata:
YESSSSSSSSS FUCK YEAH! Been dying for this >:D
Jacqivarius: The first season and manga are good so I’m expecting this to be good too. I need my dose of lovey dovey anime.
Baka-Neko: i need to watch the first season then i will watch >;D . Defs going on my anime list. oh and theres a live drama for this too ~ ! I havent watched or read it yet, but to me it seems very much like Lovely Complex.

Mahou Shoujo Madoka ★ Magica
Release Date: January 6, 2010
Animation Production:
SHAFT
Website:
Madoka JP
Genre:
Magic
Summary:
Upcoming original anime by Studio SHAFT.
Trailer:
PV

Impressions:
Serenata:
WTF and WTF.
Jacqivarius:
I’ve seen a lot of ads for this anime. SHAFT has a reputation for surprising people with the most random anime. It could be amazing or it could suck.
Baka-Neko: i dont understand a single thing that trailer just said but the graphics look good (:

IS: Infinite Stratos
Release Date: January 6, 2010
Animation Production: 8-Bit
Website: IS JP
Genre: Action, Mecha, Sci-Fi, Shounen
Summary: Infinite Stratos (IS), a weaponised exoskeleton system, has become the dominant tool of warfare and conflict. Unfortunately for the men in society, only women are able to operate Infinite Stratos… with very few exceptions. One of those exceptions is ORIMURA Ichika, an orphan raised by his older sister who is herself a famous IS pilot. When his compatibility with IS is discovered after he accidentally touches an IS at the age of 15, he’s given a scholarship and enrolled in a school that specializes in training IS pilots. Which of course means an… interesting life surrounded by girls for this shy, unassuming boy.
Trailer: PV

Impressions:
Serenata: Despite the fact that it’s mecha and sci-fi, (I really shouldn’t say this) I’m kinda curious. But no matter how you look it, it’s definitely a harem i.e. quote: ‘surrounded by girls’.
Jacqivarius: Ecchi anime for sure. I wonder if they can explain why this guy can use the suit. The suit probably misread his gender because he’s most likely an eliminate anime character or they could say that he’s “the one” and leave it at that.
Baka-Neko: it loooks interesting, but like if women can only use it, how come he can o.o some sorta glitch? well anyway ill check this out when its released.

Trailer:
PV

Impressions:
Serenata:
Four part? So there’s still more D: ? URG.
Jacqivarius: Why does MADHOUSE feel the need to ruin Western comics? Iron man was not good in the least so I don’t expect anything from this.
Baka-Neko: ew. marvel

Trailer: PV 

Impressions:
Serenata:
KUROSHITSUJI RIP OFF! Thus, why I am blogging about it. So I can bitch about the bitchy-looking heroine.
Jacqivarius:
I agree with Serenata on this one, it looks like a Kuroshitsuji rip off. However, this plays on the fact that I always thought that Ciel should have been a girl. ;D
Baka-Neko: it is a kuro rip off. and LOL trix is right ~ ciel shouldve been a girl and he was .. for a only a short while . The names a bit iffy. Gosick?

Website:Vanguard JP
Genre:
Action, Adventure, Demons, Game, Shounen

Anime based on a trading card game.
Trailer:PV

Impressions:
Serenata:
OMFG The world is coming to an end.
Jacqivarius: Yu-Gi-Oh? It’ll be nice for the kiddies and make the card game a lot of monies.

Satellizer who appears to be the most powerful Pandora in her class, but has not yet chosen a male partner to be her Limiter, and in spite of the warnings of all his friends, he decides to be her Limiter.
Trailer: PV
 
Impressions:
Serenata:
Seems alright, but I’ll pass.
Jacqivarius: The manga was alright. It’s pretty much what you would expect, girls with various weapons ripping the clothing off one another. The fights seem interesting but in the end, it’s still a generic ecchi anime with a bit of action mixed in.
Baka-Neko: ecchi. Nty.

Beelzebub
Release Date: January 9, 2010
Animation Production: Pierrot
Website: Beelzebub JP
Genre: Action, Comedy, Supernatural

This boy is the son of the demon king and he has been chosen as the one to raise it with the baby’s demon maid Hilda. The story follows his life with the child and at the delinquent school.
Trailer: PV


Impressions:
Serenata:
AHAHAHAHA. Sorry, I just felt like laughing like that for no reason. Well, seeing as it’s under Pierrot studios (who did animes such as GTO, Bleach and heaps, heaps more), I’m expecting the best :)
Jacqivarius: This looks like the only dose of shounen that I’m going to get this season. The manga is quite good so I hope that this anime doesn’t tank.
Baka-Neko: xDD ~ this reminds me so much of reborn ! except WE FINALLY HAVE A MAID IN A SHOUNEN ANIME !  Ive already seen a bit of the first ep but it was un-subbed so i was like ehh … but the action in this is like one, two kill. Amazing. E.G., walks to school, random guy picks fight, 1. Walks closer, 2. Punches, 3. Dead.

Dragon Crisis!
Release Date:
January 10, 2010
Animation Production:
Studio DEEN

Trailer:
PV

Impressions:
Serenata:
The blondie reminds me of Yachiru from Bleach, but like less awesome. Hint the ‘second cousin’. Probs gonna be some romance between the two thens.
Jacqivarius: Dragons, secret organizations, relics, and another peaceful life ruined. Studio DEEN, why must you do this to me.
Baka-Neko: ew. i hate her voice. its so high pitched and annoying effing hell. not to mention, why is it all about games this year? like MMORPG >_> zerkers, necros, mages w/e.

Trailer:PV

Impressions:
Serenata: YUP. Definitely looks like something Studio DEEN made. No thanks.
Jacqivarius: Necromancers are cool… I’ll watch it just to see how cliche this is going to be.
Baka-Neko: the girl looks cuute. but other than that. meh ; un-interested.

January 10, 2010
Animation Production: Pierrot×David production
Website: Pierrot Level E
Genre: Comedy, Sci-Fi, Shounen

Impressions:
Serenata: FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK. Horror. Well, at least the trailer was D:
Jacqivarius: This looks rather interesting. I’m guessing that it’s similar to Shiki of last season? The concept of a baseball player and aliens reminds of Gintama which would be truly amazing.

Trailer: PV

Impressions:
Serenata:
Seems fairly interesting, but still not my cup of tea (it’s sci-fi). But I’m getting the feeling that the secret mentioned isn’t exactly nice, esp with all that ‘Fractale System’ or what not. Mmhmmm.
Jacqivarius:
I’m enticed by this anime. I normally love animes that revolve around conspiracies and highly technological societies built around regular citizens. 
Baka-Neko:
O.o i dont think ill be able to follow on. it takes me a while to understand what theyre saying, esp with sci-fi and their random terms.

Trailer: PV

Impressions:
Serenata: I thought this would be one of those ROFL comedy series but turns out it’s actually pretty serious about teenagers going through puberty and transgendered issues. Sounds pretty emotional too O____O” I’ll look at it later, though I won’t I won’t blog it. Ritsu, it’s all yours.
Jacqivarius:
I will most definitely take this one. It’s a very touchy subject matter but the author has dealt with it well. My hopes are riding high with this anime.
Baka-Neko:
it sounds a bit..  emotional. which kinda puts me off. i semi wanna watch it.

Trailer: PV

Impressions:
Serenata:
Ok…WTf much. A war with cats? Now that just disturbs me, cuz if it had been anything else, I would have considered this anime a decent one. But surprisingly, the art looks pretty good, though I’m not too sure for the action.
Jacqivarius:
What’s with the Japanese and cat girls? I’ll watch it for the probable hilarity that will ensue.
Baka-Neko: LOL. a war with cats.. GAH ! i hate it when such innocent girls transform in to demons >_< it scares the shit outta me.. and same with puppets. im staying away fromthis.

Summary: Second season of Mitsudomoe.
Trailer:PV

Impressions:
Serenata: Personally, I prefer the other trailer better. LMAO. But no, I’ll pass.
Jacqivarius: Hmm, I never did watch the first season but I need my fix of Slice of Life this season. If it’s anything like Hanamaru Yochien or Hidamari Sketch then I’ll love it.
Baka-Neko: … wtf is with the “other trailer” … that just put me off it and it was from the official webbie too. *sigh*
