None of the series there sound particularly impressive... Might check out 'Canaan' and 'Bakemonogatari', and maybe 'Seitokai no Ichizon' for a shoujo hit, but that's pretty much it.
Surprised to see White Album S2 not present, is that coming out next season, does anyone know?
Spice and wolf airing this month! woo!
I hope someone uploads it on Youtube soon
Frankly, I don't see a lot of series I'm interested in this coming summer. Luckily there's a lot of fun stuff carrying over from spring to make up for it ( -> Haruhi s2, Basquash, Fullmetal Alchemist, Cross Game, Phantom...).
What I'm mostly looking forward to, though:
Tokyo Magnitude 8.0. Bones usually doesn't disappoint, and I'd been interested in the premise when the series was first announced, so I'll surely check it out.
Aoi Hana. Based on (in my opinion) one of the better shoujo-ai manga series, a very gentle and cute one. Also, JC Staff has been on something of a winning streak with their romance series, so it should prove amusing.
Zan Sayonara Zetsubou-sensei / Hetalia ~Axis Powers~ 2 / Ookami to Koushinryou II. Sequels to some very, very good and original recent anime series. The only one that'll be something of a guess is the last one, due to the change of studio. And the OVA that was released last month shows we can expect a change in the mood of the series, with increased focus on the Holo/Lawrence interaction.
Umineko no Naku Koro ni. Based on the games by the creator of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, and animated by the same studio as well. Let's see if it can match up to the expectations, shall we?
What do the rest of you suggest/anticipate for the upcoming season?

ahhh shitt, i knew that i will have lots of things to watch but now looking at the chart i have really a lot to watch......... i guess i'll pass on the beach and sit down in front of my computer day and night.......... i'll be watching weib schwarz, bakemonagatari, s&w, canaan, zetsubou, seitokai no ichizon, and possibly three other series.... im already watching 13 series so idk how im gonna manage this lol
and galth-san, have u played the game for phantom? its reallllly good :]
Looks like it's going to be a very boring season to me -____-;;;
For the series, I'm not looking forward for anything (as in don't have much hope) other than Tokyo Magnitude. I have hopes for CANAAN too.
For the others.. batch watching after they ended probably. I'll just take the chance to watch a couple of the first episodes for every series, but I doubt anything (other than Tokyo Magnitude and CANAAN) would stay, unless they surprise me enough. Sorry, but anime rarely impresses me lately, a lot of them are just mindless so to say ;___;
As for the OVAs, some of those will be in my watch. Dogs Bulelts & Carnage, Hellsing, Negima and Aika Zero.

Miya! Long time no read
So, summer 2009.. let's see...
It's not my style but it has... vampire. Which means, I need to at least give it a try Also, I was told that the light novel would actually fit my taste despite my dislike of this typical 'otaku' genre ._.
The trailer looked interesting. But other than that I haven't looked much into this announcement so far.
Tokyo Magnitude 8.0
Probably the best looking anime for this season so far. I hope it lives up to what summary and PV promise.
Saint Seiya: The Lost Canvas
Zan Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
Ookami to Koushinryou II
Hetalia Axis Powers 2
DOGS: Bullets & Carnage
... I think, that will be all. Looking forward a lot to fall season, though. Summer will be more a time filler than anything else.

But I'm really enjoying Requiem For The Phantom right now, the whole mood of the series is just fine, with especially the music and voice acting making for some eerie and dark atmosphere.

I'll probably be watching the series by Shaft and Bones. I'll probably watch Cobra for the retro quality and because Madhouse usually does a good job too.
Nothing by IG this season? Everything going towards the Eden movie?
Hmm, now that you mention it... Their probably have little else in production right now because of the Higashi no Eden and Tales of Vesperia movies planned this summer and fall respectively, and because they were kind of productive the past two seasons (even adding those awkward multiple versions of Sengoku Basara), so they have to finalize the dvd versions of their early 2009 series.
On the other hand, it's still not sure whether the Higashi no Eden movie will complete the story or just be a compilation movie, is it? For all we know the story might suddenly end next episode.
Blah, what a boring anime season. Fall season (lucky there was gundam 00), Spring season and Summer season: three in a row, three times boring...
Interesting: Lost Canvas (of course, sadly only 13 eps ) and Dogs... For the rest, it is crying with the hat on
and yes! i have missed you!!
hmm, im not sure if im gonna be watching tokyo magnitude or not... but so many people are watching it, it seems like...
and bakemonogatari is amazing! everybody should watch it! and yes, the light novel suits me very well and hopefully eni-san will like it too d
and how can the anime possibly not good if ayahi-chan is ein?!
lol idk if i should watch eva 1.11 in the movies or not. im soooo tempted to just download it!
and compilation movies are fun to watch. u can just relax and watch it since u know its not gonna be a continuation of the anime series or whatever its based on.
This blog post has some links to a collection of promo videos for the upcoming summer season (as well as a series of 'first impressions' on all of them) that might entertain you guys. Have fun watching them, and give me your thoughts!~
