What are the anime to watch in Summer 2009?

I’m only starting to understand the intermittent updates by TheBigN, and that has a lot to do with the rigours of medical school. It’s actually worse than high school, because after you’ve stayed at school for more than a third of the day you also have to study for another third just to probably pass. There are also weekly exams, which don’t make things any easier.

With that said, I haven’t really watched any anime after finishing Shikabane Hime. I was irritated at the ending, primarily because it was classically Gainax, but it was, as a series, pretty good. I wished Makina and Oori became more than friends within the anime’s span, but I guess that wasn’t meant to be.

I have a few questions: which spring anime of 2009 have already ended? What are the good ones to watch, aside from Cross Game and Eden of the East? Has a poster for Summer 2009 come out yet? What are the anime to follow?

It’s actually a reality that I’ve realized a steep decline in my Internet use. From the more or less 35 hours a week in college I’m barely using five this time around.

    Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom and Pandora Hearts (both ending when the summer season ends) are, IMO, good anime’s to watch.

    Summer ’09 Poster… are you talking about this: http://theninthcut.com/images/lineups/summer09.jpg?=v2

    For summer 09, the shows to look out for will be Bakemonogatari, Aoi Hana, Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, Umineko no Naku Koro ni (depending on how you like higurashi), Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei (depending on how you liked the first 2 seasons.), GA: Geijitsuka Art Design Class (if you like stuff like Hidamari Sketch and Aria), and Space Adventure Cobra

    I’m really looking forward to Spice and Wolf II. I watched the first episode of Sea Story, and it seemed good.
    Umineko… I saw the preview and I’m not too pleased. Go play the VN; it’s fully translated.
    Pandora Hearts: This was my second favorite of Spring, but I got into it and switched to the manga. Compared to the overly dark (and always lacking raws), the manga is better.
    Obviously everyone is still going to watch Haruhi, and there should be more new episodes as Summer wears on.
    A couple of the forced drama shows might be interesting, if only for the lols.

    Michael, I thought we’ve already gone over this.

    Whoa, study hard! Also, I’ll second Aoi Hana for production purposes. No use rehashing the second coming of Horo, because you’re probably already eying it. Hmmm, the astronomy club one could turn out nice, and Tokyo Magnitude looks like it has potential. I wouldn’t jump yet though; no rush ^^

    What about K-ON!?

  7. cuc Says:

    I’m personally looking forward to Canaan (nominally based on a Type-Moon penned story, but basically an entirely original creation), Aoi Hana and Sora no Manimani (the astronomy club one).

  8. Lehq Says:

    Canaan —> Obligatory TYPE-Moon fix. Since Kara no Kyoukai takes a long time.
    Umineko —>to fit in with the /jp/ crowd… or rather, to witness the “unity” of /a/ and /jp/.

    I finally watched the last two episodes of Eden of the East. I was like, “Waaaaaaahhhhhhhh. I want more!!!!!!” :3

    anyway, intend to leave this infantile hobby behind. i am so determined to grow up.

    I appreciate the suggestion, guys. I hope I’ll have time to watch them, lol.

    Medical school is such a boon and a bitch.
