Monthly New Anime Shout Out: May

+ posted by soDeq05 in Shout-Outs on May 2, 2010 15:55

Hello everyone! Welcome to the second Monthly New Anime Shout Out. This month there's not a whole lot to announce, but it's like they say- less means more!(well we'll let you decide with the selection ;) ). If something catches your eye make sure to check out the manga and add it to your favorites to receive updates about it! With that said, on with the new anime!



Bungaku Shoujo
文学少女

Type: Movie
Release Date: May 01 2010
Official Website: Here

The anime film Bungaku Shoujo is adapted by Production I.G, based on Mizuki Nomura's "mysterious school comedy" light novels of the same title. The story centers on the unusual members of a high school literary club. Touko Amano, a high school senior who calls herself the "literary girl" as the club president, is actually a supernatural creature (youkai) that devours stories - she tears pages from books to munch on them. Her club subordinate is Konoha Inoue, a second-year high school boy who writes stories every day for Amano to eat. He once wrote an award-winning novel, but he wrote it under the penname Miu Inoue so readers thought the author was a mysterious 14-year-old bishoujo novelist. The stress from the novel's fame and its movie and television drama plans turned Inoue in an introverted recluse.

Break Blade
ブレイク ブレイド

Type: Movie
Genres: Action, Fantasy
Release Date: May 29 2010
Official Website: Here

The 6-part anime films Broken Blade / Break Blade are adapted by Production I.G and studio Xebec, based on Yunosuke Yoshinaga's fantasy-mecha manga. The story follows Rygart Arrow - the only one in his world who lacks the inherent ability to power up quartz, the energy source that makes all of the machines run. Nevertheless, he's pretty well connected. The King and Queen of his country of Krisna happen to be old college friends. But so is Zess, the guy who is leading the army of a neighboring kingdom in an attack on Krisna. How did it comes to this? There's little time to ponder the implications as an army in giant, mechanized battle suits attacks. Arrow just feels like he's in the way - until he comes across a powerful, ancient mech that no one has yet to be able to figure out how to run. But his natural affinity for the suit's operating mechanism may just turn Arrow into the most important player of all.

Love Break Blade the manga...But haven't checked out any of the movies...
Bungaku Shoujo looks good -summary- but I'm not into much of those Shoujo School Life lately...But the plot seems really interesting for me!
King of Thorn looks mysterious and cool,something I'd anticipate to watch...And the graphics look good also...
Will probably watch the OVAs in the meantime then...DTB and TOS!

I know I may sound like a perv - but "Fault!! フォルト!!" makes me happy!
The link redirected to some awesome hentai images that I really admired! ^_^
I love "erotic" animes & mangas. I'll definitely check it out.

I'm up to date with the 'Mahou Sensei Negima!' manga. Not really into the anime though.

And is 'Break Blade' really that good? I guess I'll go check it out...

Want to watch Break Blade most...but...

By Tales of Symphonia: Tethe'alla Episode, you mean the second episode of it, right? I mean, that anime's first episode was actually released already since the beginning of April. The second one should be around the time you said it'll be out...but I doubt you can consider it as a new anime of this month because of that...-_-"

I'm eagerly anticipating the rest of the DtB OVA's, why couldn't thwy have based the second series on them instead of Ryuusei no Gemeni Y.Y

GL parallel works looks promising, the first 6 (I think?) little music videos were fantastic.

I have read the manga for Ibara no Ou (King of thorns) and it was really good. I hope the OVA will stay true (or make it even better) to the manga.
