Winter Anime Impressions 2009/2010

A friend and I took the time to write up some impressions for the upcoming anime season. Consider it a late Christmas gift. Niipah~

You can find the chart that has the upcoming winter anime that we used to make these impressions, here.


Riyoga: I was interested until I read the “headless Irish fairy” part. It doesn’t seem like it’ll be too bad a show, but I want to watch Baccano!! first since it’s done by the same creators/director.

Beast: Making it a ‘distorted love story’ got me interested. It doesn’t sound like my cup of tea though.

Approval Rating: 60%

Dance in the Vampire Bund

Riyoga: Loli. Vampires. What more do you need to know? DO WANT.

Beast: VAMPIRES!!! So we give them land. I’ll give human/vampire relations one more chance.

Approval Rating: 85%


Riyoga: K-ON VIRUS IS SPREADING. Seriously, it looks like they stole the character designs and art style too. We don’t need more moeblob crap, GTFO.

Beast: Young people creating music in the army. No thanks.

Approval Rating: 0%

Hanamaru Kindergarten

Riyoga: Oh god, Gainax is taking trolling to a whole new level. I’ll probably watch this for the lulz. It better not disappoint.

Beast: Chibi Characters? But it sounds kiddish. I’ll try anyway.

Approval Rating: 65%

Nodame Cantabile Finale

Riyoga: Looks like another one of those “true love” stories. However, this is a sequel, so I won’t be watching it unless I watch and like the prequels in the future.

Beast: MORE MUSIC? But it’s a love story. Still, no.

Approval Rating: 15%

Gag Manga Biyori+

Riyoga: LOLWTF? I might watch this if I get really bored or something. Random comedy shows are really only good if you’re in the mood.

Beast: Random is good to waste time, but I don’t want to waste time.

Approval Rating: 30%

Qwaser of Stigmata/Seikon no Quaser

Riyoga: …He draws power from breast milk? …That has to be the best friggin’ excuse to release what is essentially porn to the public, EVER. I intend to watch for the lulz, although the main guy looks like he has a pretty bitchin’ scythe.

Beast: It mentions Mafuyu and Alexander, and breast milk. ’nuff said.

Approval Rating: 90%

Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu

Riyoga: I actually really liked the synopsis up until I read that they were going to use fantasy creatures to battle. Actually, you know what? I’m going to watch an episode or two, and if it’s anything like Pokemon (which is the greatest show in existence), I’ll finish the whole show and give it an automatic 10 out of 10. PLACE YOUR BETS NOW!

Beast: It comes out on my birthday! And it’s like higher vs lower class. Immawatch.

Approval Rating: 55%

Hidamari Sketch (Season 3)

Riyoga: Blerg. Another sequel. NEXT!

Beast: Artists? Well the small characters remind me of lucky star. It looks okay.

Approval Rating: 15%

Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 3


Beast: HARUKANARU. Sounds like magic… No. More like, DEMONZ.

Approval Rating: 10%


Riyoga: Sweet, another adaptation of a Ryukishi07 story! And this one is even done by a studio that ISN’T Studio DEEN and a director that ISN’T Chiaki Kon! Also, the main character will be voiced by the same seiyuu that did Nagi in Nyan Koi! That’s pretty much an epic win right there. 100% looking forward to this show

Beast: It looks pleasing to the eye, and it’s looks like a good mystery thriller or something.

Approval Rating: 100%

Rose O’Neill’s Kewpie


Beast: …What? Kewpie? More like, COWPIE.

Approval Rating: 0%

Omamori Himari

Riyoga: When I first read the synopsis for this, I didn’t care for it at all. After reading it again recently, it sounded a heck of a lot like Inukami!, which was the most hilarious show ever, so I’m giving it a shot.

Beast: Looks like a guy surrounded by beautiful ladies. I’m in.

Approval Rating: 70%

Ladies Vs. Butlers!

Riyoga: This looks like a hit-or-miss. I’m gonna wait until people say if it’s funny or not. Could potentially be a Hayate ripoff.

Beast: Servants, cliques, upper-class ladies, chibi characters. Seems like a good recipe for guys.

Approval Rating: 70%


Riyoga: An entire show based around panties. Sounds like a waste of my time, but I could potentially also watch it for the lulz. …I don’t think there’s really any other way to watch it.

Beast: A girl starts an underwear club? I want to join!

Approval Rating: 60%

WeiB Survive R

Riyoga: Apparently this is Yu-Gi-Oh! with tits. Bleh, I’ll pass.

Beast: Looks like a show about nude ladies and a card game? Don’t know how this will turn out.

Approval Rating: 30%

Kaito Reinya

Riyoga: No. Just… no.

Beast: Appears to be directed at children with not much story.

Approval Rating: 5%

Heartcatch Precure!

Riyoga: LOL WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?! Does this show actually take itself seriously? It’s probably trying to be the next Sailor Moon or something. It’s a sequel anyway, which gives me even more incentive to stay away.

Beast: Love and cures and dancing with Trinity! I don’t know how this could be entertaining at all.
