Fall Semester Begins

So yeah, Finally after the long summer. School started! yay~!

so here are my classes...

English 102: Finally got into this class, been going after this class for 2 quarters and FINALLY got in. English 102, the first time i heard about this class i was worried, cuz we had to write a 10-12 pages (of course double spaced :D) report about the legal system or whatever it was I DIDNT like it. But this class we get to either stick with the detective fiction topic or find a topic ourself and do a research paper! Yatta! i think its gonna be exciting.

Drawing for Animation(2): yup my second time doing this class, so i'm in the advanced class. SOO much things to do, and its gonna be SOO much fun. The first project seems kinda boring... we have to put sound affects to our final animation we did last quarter, I dont want to do that... i'd rather make another little animation and add sound affects. Then we move onto making an self-portrait of ourself and do a lip-syncing animations, i'm kinda excided about that. And finally the last project is making an animated Commercial, sounds awesome. This Class is gonna be quite busy thats for sure.

Math 70: lol This class is... Mega-sa easy, i mean we were able to answer the problem the second our teacher put it up on the board.. XD shoot, so far this class is like a joke.. yeah totally...

Those are my classes this quarter, I think i'm gonna be really busy and gonna have alot of fun(i hope)


Now here something that has nothing to do with my school, i found this and i thought this was helarious, you all gotta see this

Fall Anime Series 2008

The Fall Anime 2008 Going to watch list

Gundam 00 Second Season
Airing date: October 5th
Production Group: Sunrise

Plot Summary
: 2312 A.D. Four years have passed since the final battle between Celestial Being and the UN Forces. Humanity, after having established the Earth Sphere Federation, forms an independent security force, Arrows, separate from the formal Federation army to further unify nations and the will of mankind. But the reality is the inhumane oppression of anti-government powers, doctrines, and ideologies in the name of unity. Setsuna F. Seiei, after surviving the battle four years ago, has decided to once again fight with his Gundam. (animenewsnetwork)

My Thoughts: I was not much of a Gundam fan, until I started watching a lot of Mech series(TTGL,CodeGeass,E7). My friend who was a Gundam fan suggested to watch Gundam 00, so after the first season was done airing, I finally started watching the series. Suprisingly I was enjoying it(maybe because i got so used to mech now after watching some). Great animation by Sunrise( probably the best production group for mech series), the plot was decent(although i must admit the scene with Lock on was quite touching), the names of the characters are quite humorous. So anyhow, I'm looking foward to this series which is going to be airing right after Code Geass R2, so hopefully this series wont dissapoint me.

Tora Dora
Airing Date: October 1st
Production Group: J.C. Staff

Plot Summary: Despite Ryūji Takasu's gentle personality, his eyes make him look like an intimidating delinquent so he is utterly hopeless about his chances of getting a girlfriend anytime soon, and does not have many close friends either. After being greeted by his hungover mother in the morning, Ryūji goes to school and is happy to find that he gets to be in the same class as his best friend Yūsaku Kitamura and crush Minori Kushieda. However, it is then that he unexpectedly knocks into "the school's most dangerous animal of the highest risk level" — Taiga Aisaka — who just happens to also be in his class, and is a good friend of Minori. (Animenewsnetwork)

My Thoughts: So I'm just watching this series, because I recently read the manga and I thought it was pretty fun, but I did hear that the anime was going to be based from the light novel version, I'll just have to wait and see.

Clannad ~After Story~
Airing date: October 2nd
Production group: Kyoto Animation

Plot Summary: A sequel to the recently wrapped anime based on the Key Clannad franchise. After Story is a path that opens in the original visual novel after all the other paths have been opened. (ANN)

First season Plot Summary
: Tomoya Okazaki is a third year high school student resentful of his life. His mother passed away from a car accident when he was younger, causing his father to resort to alcohol and gambling. This results in fights between the two until Tomoya's shoulder is injured in a fight. Since then, Tomoya has had distant relationships with his father, causing him to become a delinquent over time. While on a walk to school, he meets a strange girl named Nagisa Furukawa who is a year older, but is repeating due to illness. Due to this, she is often alone as most of her friends have moved on. The two begin hanging out and slowly, as time goes by, Tomoya finds his life shifting in a new direction. (ANN)

My Thoughts: This series I'd have to say was one of the better ones that kyoto animation made, they made other series such as Kanon and Air, which werent so bad, but after watching those series, its pretty easy to understand the plot of Clannad right away, so basically after watching Kanon and Air, its like you've watched then all. So now that Clannad has a sequel, which is going to be about the future of what happend after the first series, I'm curious of whats going to be happening to the characters, now that all the characters are introduced...Fuuko lol.

Nodame Cantabile Paris-hen
Airing date: October 9th
Production group: J.C. Staff

Plot Summary: The two music students now drive themselves and each other to greater artistic heights, in Japan and now Europe.(ANN)

First Season Plot Summary:
At a top music academy in Japan, Shinichi Chiaki's arrogance is matched only by his top-notch piano playing. But when Chiaki and the teacher get into a fight, he's demoted to the reject class. Chiaki is left to pursue his dream of being a conductor while surrounded by a bunch of loser musicians and one annoying girl, Noda, who has proclaimed herself Chiaki's girlfriend. It doesn't help that Noda, who insists on being called Nodame, lives right next door to him.(ANN)

My Thoughts: YEEEESSSS finally! the long waited second season of Nadame Cantabile, after watching the first season I was soo into the series, I started watching the Live action drama! Then started reading the manga, and Finally soon! the second season is out! I just hope that I wont get dissapointed by the series. *crosses finger*

Tales of the Abyss

Airing date: October 3rd
Production group: Sunrise

Plot Summary: Luke fon Fabre, the spoiled son of a noble from the kingdom of Kimlasca-Lavaldear, has been confined inside his father's mansion ever since he was kidnapped seven years ago by a rival country, the Malkuth Empire. Now Luke's memory of the life he led before is missing, and a strange voice, which only he can hear, has been calling out to him ever since. One day while training with his mentor, Van Grants, a strange woman called Tear breaks into the mansion with the sole intent of taking Van's life. During the struggle Luke is transported far from home, along with Tear, and now that Luke has finally gained the freedom he's been dreaming of what awaits him in the outside world will shatter everything he's ever known about himself. (ANN)

My Thoughts: I have not played any more Tales series game after Symphonia, so I have no idea of what the story is going to be like, it is even going to the same story as the game, I will not be sure. But I have been the fan of the Tales series ever since Tales of Phantasia, which was for the GBA(if i recall) and they also have couple anime series based from the games, Tales or Eternia, Phantasia, and the most recent Symphonia, the only diffenrce is going to be that Tales of Abyss is going to be a 26 episode series, the other series were mostly OVA's and they only went up to 4 episodes, except for Eternia which was a tv series and had 13 episodes. All in all I'll be looking foward to this anime.

ef - a tale of melodies
Airing date: October ?
Production group: SHAFT

Plot Summery: This is the sequel to Ef ~ A tale of memories ~. This is likely to focus more on Yu and Mizuki, and their life. Following this will be a recap of the first season syponsis.

The story revolves around two protagonists, Hirono Hiro and Asou Renji. On Christmas Eve, Hirono Hiro meets a girl named Miyamura Miyako who was chasing a purse snatcher. Hiro later finds out that Miyako also goes to the same school as he does and they start hanging out together. This made Hiro’s childhood friend, Shindou Kei, feel left out. Kei then tries to compete with Miyako for Hiro’s affection and a love triangle ensues. The anime also tells the story of Asou Renji. Renji meets a girl named Shindou Chihiro at an abandoned train station. He soon learns that Chihiro suffers from a type of amnesia where her memory span only lasts for 13 hours. He also discovers Chihiro’s dream of writing a novel, but she has never been able to fulfill that dream due to her condition. Renji then decides to help her fulfill that dream.

My Thought: Well, I was pretty excited to hear about a sequel, but then again I just liked the ending of the first series. The plot was decent, and the build up of the story was interesting, I really LOVED the theme song, thats probably one reasong why I'm gonna see this series. I just hope that it wont be the same story over again...

The Fall Anime 2008 Possibles

My Thoughts: Heroes... super strong girl, a mind reader, a conjurer, and an ordinary powerless boy.... okkk.. so yeah I'm just interested in this because I see that there are soo much people talking about this, I havent read the manga, and I have no idea whats going to be happening, but the idea of supernatural power anime.. hmmm really doesnt catch my attention too much. I suppose the art style looks pretty sweet, but other than that I'll probably watch couple episodes to see how things are.

Airing date: October 2nd
Production group: A-1 Picture Inc

Plot Summary: One of the noble families of England - Phantomhive, has a butler, Sebastian Michaels. He has unquestionably perfect knowledge, manners, talent with materials. martial arts and much more. But he serves a 12 year old master. (ANN)

My Thoughts: Yet another series that I'm just going to check up because I've heard many things about it. No other particular reason, except that the animation style looks a lot like Nabari no Ou, which i dont really like too much(the animation)

Kyou no Go no Ni

Airing date: October 5th
Production group: Xebec

Plot Summary: Kyou no Go no Ni revolves around Sota Ryota, a 5th grader in an elementary school. He is a bright and active boy but always manages to get in to a bit of ecchi troubles with this classmate girls

My Thoughts: Just watching it because the Author of this manga, also made Minami-ke another manga and anime series which I both enjoyed reading and watching (except for the second season of Minami-ke b/c the production group changed) So I'm gonna give it a chance

Michiko to Hatchin
Airing date: October 15th
Production group: Manglobe Inc

Plot Summary: Michiko is a free-willed "sexy diva" who destroys a supposedly inescapable fortress, while Hatchin is a girl fleeing her strict foster parents. The two join forces on an improbable escape to freedom. (ANN)

My Thoughts: So I just heard that the same production group made Samurai Champloo, so that just got me interested, and from the trailer the animation is really well made, just like Samurai Champloo. Its definitely a possible

Shikabane Hime
Airing date: October 2nd
Production group: GAINAX

Plot Summary: The title "Corpse Princess" belongs to Makina Hoshimura, an undead girl who seeks to hunt down 108 corpses in order to go to heaven.(ANN)

My Thoughts: Seems bloody enough, hunt down 108 corpes to go to heaven... lol very interesting.

Kurogane no Linebarre
Airing date: October 3rd
Produciton group: Gonzo

Plot Summary: An artificial satellite falls to Earth in 2013, seriously injuring Hayase Kouichi. He awakens six months later with strange powers. Three years later, a giant robot called Linebarrel appears and Kouichi joins him to fight for Juda, the largest medical equipment supplier in the world.(ANN)

My Thoughts: Well Gonzo made this and its got Mecha, I think its worth a few episodes to watch, the only thing that I didnt really like was that the Mecha's are in 3D.. I mean yeah, 3D robots are cool, but it just doesnt fit in with the animation, In My Opinion. Recently Gonzo's been doing alot of 3D things and I havent really likend that, so yeah I just hope the story line will be worth the watch.

To Aru Majutsu no Index
Airing date: October ?
Production group: J.C. Staff

Plot Summary: In a world where science clarifies supernatural powers. In a huge college that has power development in its curriculum. To a resident high school student, Kamijou Touma, a pure white sister appears. She calls herself "Index" and says that sorcerers are chasing her. Thus, Kamijou Touma enters the world of the occult.

My Thoughts: J.C. Staff, why not give them a chance.

Kemeko Delux!
Airing date: October 4th
Production group: Hal Film Maker

Plot Summary: A chibi robot doll appears in the room of a typical high school boy. The robot claims the boy as her husband and then a beautiful girl comes out of the doll's mouth who knows the boy from 10 years prior and had been promised his hand in marriage.

My Thoughts: I read the newest chapter in the manga, its pretty funny, I think it'll be worth a check, the only thing I just dont like is the chibi robot she(main character) uses, really isnt cute or anything, its kinda IMO

Vampire Knight Guilty
Airing date: October 6th
Production group: Studio DEEN

Plot Summary: Yuuki wants to know more about her true family and her forgotten past and starts a research. The secret will be revealed. Yuki, Kaname and Zero will show the begining of a new mystery and a forbidden love. (ANN)

My Thought: ok so I believe there are ALOT of fangirls about this series and alot of people making big news about this, so I checked out the first series, I almost fell asleep(sorry for those who LOVE this series) during the first couple episodes, but then later throughtout the story its gotten better, I guess to me it was just a slow beginning. Since it kinda ended in kind of a cliff hanger, I just thought I'd check it out too see where it goes.

Airing date: October 4th
Production group: A-1 Picture Inc

Plot Summary: An art student named Jin Mikuriya carves a statue from the wood of the Kannagi tree only to have the statue come to life in the form of a goddess, who has now taken over the statue. He and "Nagi" work together to destroy the impurities that are gathering in the town.(ANN)

My Thoughts: "An art student" ok so that kinda got my attention, as an artist I'm open to anime with artist, but they tend to not "show" them drawing and stuff.. which is kinda dumb. Anyhow, this anime is based from the light novel(so I heard) and the artstyle was pretty catchy, so I think I'm gonna give it a little peek.

Airing date: October 1st
Production group: Nippon Animation

Plot Summary: The story follows the antics of four high school freshman girls, after they enroll into a huge private academy that teaches every grade from elemntary school to high school.

My Thoughts: Hyakko??? lol the title is so random... I wonder if thats one of the characters name... but yeah I dont have any particular reason why I want to see this.. I guess its because its a slice of life/comedy and like what others said, the main characters voice actor is the voice actor for Haruhi Suzumiya....
