Name: Angel Beats!
Japanese Title: エンジェルビーツ
Producer: P.A. Works x Aniplex x Visual Art's/Key x G's Magazines
Premier: April 2010 Spring 2010 (Moonphase has it listed for spring)
Related Links: ANN
Promo: Youtube
Summary: (ANN)
In a world after death, angels fight for their fate and their future. Yuri, the leader of the Shinda Sekai Sensen, rebels against the god who destined her to have an unreasonable life. On the otherhand, Tenshi, the chairperson of the student council for the world after death, battles against the SSS members. SSS members utilize armed weaponry to battle it out against the angels harnessing supernatural powers.


I know I ever said that girl+sword= win, but I also think the same thing with girl+gun. wub.gif The other point is that this is Key is taking part in the production of this anime. (Key is very popular with some famous title such as Air, Clannad, and Kanon). So, I expect this would be a well done anime.

The other thing if you look closely at the main character, Yuri, she will resembles Suzumiya Haruhi a lot!! except with different hair and eyes color. hmm SSS = the new SOS Dan. blink.gif

Main Title: Omamori Himari
Japanese Title: おまもりひまり
Production: ZEXCS
Premier Date: January 2010
Genre: action, supernatural ,harem, comedy , ecchi
Official Site: Omamori Himari
Related Links: ANN, Fansub TV Manga Thread
Summary (ANN):
The slapstick romantic comedy centers around an ordinary 16-year-old high school boy named Yūto Amakawa who is protected by a spirit — specifically, a beautiful, sword-wielding cat girl spirit named Himari. Yūto is descended from a family that has subjugated demons since time immemorial. The charm that once protected him is now impotent, but fortunately, at that same moment, Himari appears before him as his new guardian.

I have read the manga so far (English translated version is up to chapter 36), and I really love the story. girl + sword = win!
The main character itself is not a lame one (at least in the manga), well I think Yuuto is quite a good male character compared to other male character that I hate (I will not mention the name here).

If you read the manga, you would probably find that Rinko is a little bit different in the anime. Other than her, the rest are pretty similar to the manga. Unfortunately, there is no noticeable seiyuu (voice actor) in the anime. But that aside, I have high expectation of this anime. happy.gif


Manga Summary:(onemanga)
Seven years ago, Amakawa Yuuto's parents died leaving him living alone without a single relative. Ever since then, his childhood friend, Kuzaki Rinko, has waken him up, cooked for him and generally taken care of him. The only thing he has from any relative is a mysterious charm, a red ball, given to him by his grandparents as a good luck charm (an omamori).
On the day of his 16th birthday, this charm mysteriously disappears, and into Yuuto's life walks Himari. A cat spirit-samurai girl and demon hunter who swears to protect Yuuto. There is only one small problem. Yuuto has a severe allergic reaction to cats! Hang on to your manga-reading chair as this slapstick love comedy with a bit of good ol' fashion demon hunting is about to begin!

New D.C. ~Da Capo~

NOTE: the official name of the anime hasn't been officially published yet, so I just put New D.C. ~Da Capo~ as the thread name. I will change the name later once the official name is released.

Expected Premiere Date: Spring 2010

Circus has announced a new Da Capo anime, along with visual novel. (for complete list see ANN on the above link). Still not sure, whether the new story will be related with the original Da Capo or Da Capo II or a totally new story with new characters. (Personally, I wish for the last).

In my opinion, most likely, the story will be related to the sakura tree (again...) dry.gif Although, I still like the Da capo series, but I just wish that a "new breeze" of story will be created. Well, Circus is a big company so i am sure they will figure something out for the Da Capo fans to not become bored. (...or not?)

Note: the image above is from Da Capo II, so it is not a new image for the new season.

Probably an 'original' anticipated anime that I am interested in after awhile. So far, there are 3 pilot editions that have been released. The main song is sung by Hatsune Miku. (If you guys don't know who Miku is, google is always your best friend. Although probably you want to see this first) laugh.gif

Although, I doubt that Miku will appear in this anime (aside from the song), this still looks a very cool anime to me. And since it is original anime, the plot and story are still mystery up to this point. (Although, we can guess it a little bit by watching the pilot). As side note, one of the girl has piggy-tails too which is Miku's trademark in vocaloid. blink.gif Luckily, based on the promo it doesn't seem to not be a 'singing' anime thou, so I am looking forward to this. happy.gif -edit: it doesn't mean that i hate vocaloid songs thou...i like vocaloid songs, i just think that anime based on singing would be boring :x

AniDB has listed this as TV series (which is most likely true), but so far I haven't seen any announcement about it yet.

The 3 pilot videos are subbed and uploaded at youtube:

Title: New Prince of Tennis
Genre: sports, shounen
Serialized In: Jump Square Monthly Magazine
Starting in: April 2009 Issue
Official Release Date: March 4, 2009
Prequel: Prince of Tennis
Synopsis:
Ryoma is going back to Japan after he went to America when the first series ends. Around the same time, at Japan there are 50 middle school students who are invited into the U-17 training camp. This includes all seigaku members, hyoutei, rikkaidai, and other schools (players) that has been acknowledged.

The stories of this New Prince of Tennis would be around the U-17 camp of all Japan. Later on, I would guess that there will be tournament with other countries.
