Fall ’08 Anime Season: What’s on my watchlist


The Fall ’08 season is well underway with several shows having their first episodes airing in the past week or so. There is a deluge of new series as well as some returning ones. Reviews of the first episode airings are up on lots of blog sites which is a good thing because it helps me decide on what to pick and watch.  There’s something for everybody.  Being more of a viewer, I’ll probably be blogging two or three shows that perks my interest when they are a few episodes down the road but not more than that.

Along with the Fall shows, we’re getting lots of new OPs and EDs as well and I think that’s where my focus will be…the music.  Seems that we’re off to a good start in terms of new OPs and EDs.  Already among my favourites are; UVERworld’s OP theme ‘Hakanaku mo Towa no Kanashi’ (Fleeting and Everlasting Sorrow) for Gundam 00 S2 and Maaya Sakamoto’s ED track ‘Ame Ga Furu’ for Kurogane no Linebarrels .  Lia’s ‘Toki wo Kizamu Uta’, OP for Clannad~After Story~ is already becoming a fan favourite.  I made several OP & ED clips of series I picked to go with my watch list in this post. Yup, this season is slowly turning out to be an interesting one indeed.

Here’s my Fall watchlist (subj to change at any time…lol):
