Spring 2009 Anime

After last season's fantastic anime, Japan is now airing their spring season lineup. Here are some animes you might want to watch:

K-ON!

Four girls, one school, same dream. no this is not a Lucky Star clone many have said on the interwebs. K-ON! is an anime of its own. If you love music and moe girls, this anime is for you!

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

a sequel to the anime of 2003 that became a hit that we all know. The action and alchemy is still there, as well as the comedy moments and fighting scenes that made FMA popular. It is also being simultaneously aired on Animax so for those people who don't know what a torrent is can watch the show.Will the same formula work on this next installment? We'll soon find out

Tears to Tiara

I have watched this anime as the very first simulcast of Animax last Monday and I'm sure Animax didn't made the wrong choice on this one. Set on a fantasy atmosphere where an evil being is on the brink of revival. Sounds a cliche right? But if you watch the first episode, the artwork and the effects can compensate for the cliche. I'm backing-up Animax on this one.
So take a pledge and place this on your favorite social networking site.

“I’m watching Tears to Tiara and Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood on Animax now”

Sengoku Basara

A Romance of the Three KIngdoms / Dynasty Warriors inspired anime that's full of martial arts and uber cool effects. Will this formula make this anime a hit or will it be a shame? So far the story is good and the characters are introduced one by one. Looking forward to the next episode.

Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~

A serious anime that is all about espionage and deceit. If those two genre are your favorite, this anime is for you. But if you're the childish and moe type, stay away from this anime for it's target is the mature audience.

Queen's Blade

The highly anticipated anime for us toy collectors. Queen's Blade is a graphic artwork that was circulating the interwebs for quite some time now. The anime is..uughh.. not for children as Oppais are displayed almost every part of the scene and the protagonist wet herself TWICE. Is this really aired on Japanese primetime?

Valkyria Chronicles

yet another anime on a medieval setting. This one is kinda light on the action..so far and it seem to head on a romantic genre rather than an action genre. We'll just wait for further developments.

Pandora Hearts

A gothic-mystery-fantasy anime that looks promising to watch. It's not anything to write home about, but the writing and the pacing are competent enough to make you curious about what's around the corner.

Eden of the East

A romantic story of a boy who's memory is wiped out and a girl who is oh-so cute. The sorty is not yet progressing so there is still room for some surprises.
