The surprise? Nothing that makes me drool at first sight. Hmm...
Having said that, I still have to watch something, and the few noteworthy ones at this point would probably just be the following for the time being;
Maybe it's because of the long gap in between waiting for this to be released, that I'm not as hyped up as I'm supposed to be. Of course, this will all change once the show actually airs. Judging from the DVD trailers, season 2 promises more Lelouch just-as-planning and Suzaku faggotory.
10% seems to be the "in" thing this year. From the delicious wolf god Horo to the recently released English patch of the Utawarerumono game by Mirror Moon, bishoujos with animal anatomies are invading the hearts of otakus. No clue what this is about, but it seems to feature foxgirls in miko costumes, which makes it an instant winner in my book ( ´∀`)
I only recently learned how to pronounce this title(lawl, trouble), despite having read the manga quite a while back. The plot's kinda dumb; alien princess on the run and bumps into a loser of highschool dude. Blah blah she falls in love with him, but because this is typical harem, he's undecided, as there is another girl he's interested in. Loads of fanservice to be expected, so I'm going to stick to this.
Light novel turned animu. Don't be fooled by the character designs, it's some Kino's Adventure styled show set in the 1920's that features lots of guns, explosions and WW1 plane dogfights. Best of all, it features the voice talent of Nana Mizuki. Har har.
Slice of life anime from the perspective of a kitten? Sounds like win.
Well that's about it for now. As always, I'll be randomly trying whatever that gets subbed, so obviously there's room for more, even though they've yet to catch my attention ^^ Shin out.
