BLADE | ブレイド



http://www.animax.co.jp/marvelanime/blade/
Animation: MADHOUSE x Marvel Premiere: July 1, 2011
Genre: Action Airtime (GMT+9): Fridays at 22:00
Episodes: 12 Station: ANIMAX

The last of four Madhouse x Marvel collaboration projects comes in the form of Blade — the story of a superhero vampire hunter who acquired his own vampiric abilities when his mother was bitten just prior to his birth. Known as the “Daywalker”, the vampire/human hybrid Blade (Ootsuka Akio) is seeking revenge on the four-fanged vampire Deacon Frost (Isobe Tsutomu) for killing his mother, which leads him to Japan where he encounters a father/daughter vampire hunter duo. He’s forced to kill the father when the latter is bitten, leaving him at odds with the daughter Makoto (Sakamoto Maaya). However, they eventually see eye-to-eye and work together against Frost’s “Existence” organization, comprised of genetically modified vampires.

Ro-Kyu-Bu! | ロウきゅーぶ!



http://www.ro-kyu-bu.com/
Animation: project No.9 x Studio Blanc Premiere: July 1, 2011
Genre: Comedy, School-Life, Sports Airtime (GMT+9): Fridays at 23:30
Episodes: 12 Station: AT-X

From two relatively unknown studios comes a light novel (later turned manga) adaptation about Hasegawa Subaru (Kaji Yuuki), a talented basketball player who gets scouted for Nanashiba High, only to find out that club activities are suspended for a year due to suspicions of the club leader being a lolicon after he ran away with an underage girl. Upon hearing this, his aunt Takamura Mihoshi (Itou Shizuka) invites him to coach the girls basketball team at her elementary school. Dejected, Subaru refuses at first, but is vehemently convinced to give it a try for a week. On his first day, he’s greeted by five girls in maid outfits as per Mihoshi’s plan to make him stay. He later learns of their situation and is captivated by the abilities of the only experienced member, Minato Tomoka (Hanazawa Kana), and decides to coach them seriously.

I think they have a pretty good round-about casts. Most of them are female seiyuus if not all, in the anime. And all of them, once in their life, was anointed the best female seiyuu of all time. They are like the equivalence of the current "Kara Hanazawa", cept old.

Kami-sama no Memo-chou | 神様のメモ帳



http://www.kamimemo.com/
Animation: J.C. Staff Premiere: July 2, 2011
Genre: Mystery Airtime (GMT+9): Saturdays at 23:00
Episodes: 12 Station: AT-X

YES an anime that I know of.. Light novel turned manga, then into Anime.

Self-proclaimed NEET detective, Alice (Ogura Yui), whom 16-year-old transfer student Fujishima Narumi (Matsuoka Yoshitsugu) is introduced to by his classmate Shinozaki Ayaka (Kayano Ai). Alice is a doll-like, super shut-in, and lives in an apartment above the ramen shop that Ayaka works at. Narumi winds up becoming her assistant (*cough cough* servant) to solve cases around the city, which she mostly does on her computer without ever leaving her room. They’re aided by fellow NEETs: ex-high school boxer/gambling addict Tetsu (Matsukaze Masaya), military fanatic “Shousa” (Miyata Kouki), smooth-talking gigolo Hiro (Sakurai Takahiro), and Hirasawa delinquent group leader “Yondaime” (Ono Daisuke).

SO, I guess, they decided to kinda wander off from the original thematic point... I guess this could evolve into various genres of Anime. But it's mainly comedy + limited action, they looked so cool in the manga though.

Sacred Seven | セイクリッドセブン



http://www.sacred7.jp/
Animation: Sunrise Premiere: July 2, 2011
Genre: Action, Fantasy Airtime (GMT+9): Saturdays at 26:28
Episodes: 12 Station: MBS

Although the artwork is pretty lame it's Sunrise, come on!

Somewhat like Ginga Bishounen, Star Driver, their opening-artwork is pretty damn lame. But I think sunrise can pull it off again, that's why I'll be both watching and reviewing this Anime.

Tandouji Aruma (Terashima Takuma) is in a Kantou port city, where he meets a mysterious transfer student named Aiba Ruri (Nakajima Megumi) asking for his help. Arumi is known as a “Yoshi”, one who possesses the Sacred Seven power, but he declines because he’s become an outcast after losing control of his power in the past. Before long, rock demons known as “Ashi” appear and wreak havoc, so Ruri entrusts Aruma with a jewel imbued with her will to help him realize his true power to defeat them. It turns out that Ruri is the wealthy daughter of the Aibi Foundation, and is establishing an anti-Ashi organization because of a past incident. She’s supported by her butler Kagami Makoto (Irino Miyu) and a Maid Unit that he commands.

Nurarihyon no Mago Sennen Makyou | ぬらりひょんの孫 千年魔京



http://www.nuramago.jp/
Animation: Studio DEEN Premiere: July 3, 2011
Genre: Action, Fantasy Airtime (GMT+9): Sundays at 17:30
Episodes: 2-cour Station: Tokyo MX (MX)

It's another one of those off-the-series work, designed to "attract and leash" the fans but at the same time it has nothing to do with the original anime adaptation. "Filler".

Odds I’ll Watch This: No

Ikoku Meiro no Croisée The Animation | 異国迷路のクロワーゼ The Animation Top



http://ikokumeiro.com/
Animation: Satelight Premiere: July 3, 2011
Genre: Slice-of-Life Airtime (GMT+9): Sundays at 24:30
Episodes: 12 Station: Chiba TV (CTC)

We don’t see Satelight studio leading the production of too many shows, but they’re back with this adaptation of female mangaka Takeda Hinata’s lovely slice-of-life series. Set in 19th century Paris, “Crossing of a Foreign Maze” follows a young girl named Yune (Touyama Nao), who leaves Japan to learn about the world. She’s brought to an old shopping district known as Galerie du Roy by a French merchant named Oscar Claudel (Tanaka Hideyuki), where she helps out at an ironworks shop, Enseignes du Roy, run by his grandson Claude (Kondou Takashi). Claude doesn’t like the idea of having to look after Yune, who’s still learning the French language, but is constantly bewildered by her Japanese customs and is slowly won over by her earnest desire to be helpful. Things flip over to a lighthearted air when the wealthy Japanese culture fanatic Alice Blanche (Yuuki Aoi) learns of Yune from his sister Camille (Yahagi Sayuri).

Natsume Yuujin-chou San | 夏目友人帳 参 Top



http://www.nasinc.co.jp/jp/natsume-anime/
Animation: Brain’s Base Premiere: July 4, 2011
Genre: Drama, Fantasy Airtime (GMT+9): Mondays at 25:30
Episodes: Station: TV Tokyo (TX)

Third-season already.. Uggh.

Natsume Takashi (Kamiya Hiroshi) and his “Book of Friends” is back for a third season, brought to us by the same staff at Brain’s Base (except for the screen writer). Takashi’s had a very lonely childhood because of his ability to see spirits, but later learns that his grandmother Reiko (Kobayashi Sanae) also had this ability. After inheriting her notebook — which contains the names of all the youkai she half-heartedly put under her servitude — Takashi decides to release youkai from their contracts while fending off the ones who are after it. He’s aided by a mischievous spirit named Madara, a.k.a. Nyanko-sensei (Inoue Kazuhiko), who’s after the book himself yet agrees to protect him for the time being. In this third iteration, Takashi continues his journey of annulling contracts with youkai that wish to have their names returned, as he encounters more spirits and learns of Reiko’s teenage years when she beat them into submission.

Kami-sama Dolls | 神様ドォルズ


http://www.kamisama-anime.jp/
Animation: Brain’s Base Premiere: July 5, 2011
Genre: Action, Fantasy Airtime (GMT+9): Tuesdays at 25:30
Episodes: 13 Station: TV Tokyo (TX

“Girl Meets God” is the tagline for this manga adaptation, which begins with Kuga Kyouhei (Okamoto Nobuhiko) leaving his small village to attend a university in Tokyo. After a group dating event with a fellow student/daughter of his father’s friend, Shiba Hibino (Kayano Ai), whom he wants to confess to, they come across a massacred corpse. Not long after, Kyouhei’s younger sister Utao (Fukuen Misato) comes looking for him, telling him that Kuga Aki (Kimura Ryouhei) has escaped imprisonment after learning that Kyouhei had left, and that he’s responsible for the murder. Utao and Aki are “Seki”, manipulators of their village’s secret Kakashi — mysterious dolls that are believed to be the empty shells of god. Aki was once a good friend of Kyouhei’s, but now believes he possesses a powerful black power of the Kuga family and intentionally provokes him to try and awaken what he believes is his true nature.

Usagi Drop | うさぎドロップ



http://www.usagi-drop.tv/
Animation: Production I.G Premiere: July 7, 2011
Genre: Drama Airtime (GMT+9): Thursdays at 24:45
Episodes: 11 Station: Fuji TV (CX)

“Bunny Drop”. The premise is somewhat unusual, and starts off with 30-year-old salaryman Kawachi Daikichi (Tsuchida Hiroshi) attending his grandfather’s funeral, only to find out that he left behind a six-year-old illegitimate daughter named Kaga Rin (voiced by 9-year-old Matsuura Ayu), much to the disbelief of him and the rest of the family. Rin’s feelings about losing her father are quickly ignored, as Daikichi’s relatives perceive her as an embarrassment and argue over who’s going to have to take her in. Repulsed by their attitude, Daikichi decides to raise Rin himself, and she takes an almost immediate liking to him since he looks just like his late grandfather. Thus begins the heartwarming story about a 30-year-old nephew raising his 6-year-old aunt.

CAUTION: I might possibly drop few of the anime series that I said I'd be watching.



Titles that I did not mention:


Uta no Prince-sama Maji LOVE 1000% | うたの☆プリンスさまっ♪ マジLOVE1000%

Yuruyuri | ゆるゆり (SIMPLE, Yuri-work, I deny that. Altho it is yuri comedy, people might be interested in it. Supposedly, they are really funny, in comedy-sense of course.)

Morita-san wa Mukuchi. | 森田さんは無口。

Nyanpire The Animation | にゃんぱいあ The Animation


They are under this list because I really think they are unwatchable; possible Aoi adaptation, horrible artwork, no-brain-requiring-but-not-even-funny-anime.



Part 2. Coming Soon
