Animenewsnetwork reports that the official Nodame Cantabile anime website has released a 15 second trailer for the continuation of Nodame Cantabile, entitled Nodame Cantabile Paris-hen. Tomoko Nonomiya's romantic comedy about two music students, Chiaki Shinichi and Noda Megumi, was adapted as an anime in 2007 with 23 episodes. The manga is currently being published in KISS with 22 volumes released to date. Del Rey is releasing the manga in English which currently has 14 volumes released.

With many spring and summer animes ending in the next month or two new animes will soon start in September and October to replace those, and so I thought it'd be a good idea to post the trailers that I could find to help you decide what new anime to follow. Note that I couldn't find all the trailers for every anime that will come out, as some have only just recently had their websites posted (Mouryou no Hako and One Outs) and some just don't have much information released, so if you see one that I'm missing, just post a comment.

Hakushaku to Yousei (Count and Fairy): September 29
"The story is set in 19th century England and centers on a "fairy doctor" named Lydia. Her life takes a 180-degrees turn when she meets a legendary blue knight count named Edgar and his crew. He hires her as an adviser during his quest to obtain a treasured sword that was supposed to be handed down to him by his family." (From ANN)

Shikabane Hime: October 2
"The story starts off with a bunch of high school students, taking the dare to go up to this abandoned building that has been half destroyed by a fire. It was rumoured to be haunted. Just a rumour, right? Not when real corpses start showing up, and they start feeling things grabbing them, and finally zombies going after them! Shikabane Hime is there to save the day. The immortal girl, “Shikabane Hime,” has the mission to “kill” 108 corpses. It’s a contract she has between herself and the Buddhist monk, Keisei. After 108 corpses, she will finally get her happiness and go to heaven." (From Mangaupdates)

Toradora!: October 2
"Toradora!'s story begins with the male protagonist Ryuuji Takasu who is frustrated at trying to look his best as he enters his second year of high school. Despite his gentle personality, he has a natural outer-appearance which makes 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, Ryuuji 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." (From Mangaupdates)

Hime is a superheroine. Ao can read minds. Kotoha can conjure up anything with the right word. And Akina…well, he's just a regular guy, surrounded by three supergirls!

Kurogane no Linebarrels: October 4
"Based on a shounen manga written by Shimizu Eiichi and illustrated by Shimoguchi Tomohiro, serialised in Champion RED.

However, those days of being bullied by classmates and escaping to a fantasy of being a hero are put to an end when a certain “accident” bestows on him a girl and a gigantic humanoid robot called “LINEBARREL”. The extraordinary power that Kouichi obtains puts him and everything around him on a sudden rollercoaster ride of battles, intrigues and friendship! During the course of his adventure, the boy starts to learn what life has to offer; he meets new friends, bids farewell to the old ones, but most of all he now has considerable responsibilities and is forced to confront the world around him." (From AniDB)

Kannagi ~ Crazy Shrine Maiden: October 5
"Our unlucky protagonist, Jin, uses the trunk of a sacred tree to carve a statue for a school project. When he takes it outside, to his surprise, it begins absorbing the surrounding earth and transforms into, hold your breath on this one, a girl! So like all similar setups this guardian deity is pretty pissed that her tree was cut down and lives with Jin while she takes out her anger on squashing bugs....er, cleaning the "Impurities"." (From Mangaupdates)

Kemeko Deluxe!: October 5
"10 years ago, high-school student Sanpeita dreamed he was engaged to a beautiful girl. One morning, an unknown homely girl suddenly pressed him for marriage. The homely girl was named Kemeko. In order to escape, Sanpeita left for school where Kemeko followed and showed up with an uproar. A larger disturbance was when Sanpeita was targeted by a rice cooker on the school's rooftop. As Sanpeita and his childhood friend Izumi were being attacked by the rice cooker, Kemeko saved them both. What is the girl's true shape!?" (From Mangaupdates)

To Aru Majutsu no Index (A Certain Magical Index): October 5
"In the story, Tōma Kamijō is an ordinary high school boy with terrible academic scores and a power called Imagine Breaker. Imagine Breaker can defeat any other power, but it also undermines Kamijō's own good luck. His Imagine Breaker's immense strength is literally immeasurable, so hapless Kamijō is listed at the supernatural level of 0. He happens to meet a girl in white hanging off his window balcony. The girl says she is being chased by sorcerers, and Kamijō learns that the girl is a Church of England nun whose memories have been forcibly replaced by Index-Librorum-Prohibitorum — the 103,000 forbidden texts of the Church." (From Mangupdates)

Kidou Senshi Gundam 00 2nd Season: October 5
The continuation of Gundam... enough said.

Well, there are too many trailers for this, so I just chose the most recent one.

Ga-Rei: Zero: October 6
"While many of us will probably scream at even the thought of a ghost being near us, Freshman Nimura Kensuke just thinks of it as a common everyday thing, seeing as how he has the uncanny ability to see so many of them on a daily basis. Things soon heat up for him when he meets a girl who changes his life from then on. Her name’s Kagura, and she has the power to summon a mighty “spirit devourer”–otherwise known as a “Ga-rei”–called Byakuei. So, what’s Nimura to do? Chase down the evil spirits and and have Kagura summon the Ga-rei to devour them, of course! Now, come feast on their adventures like some ravenous Ga-rei!" (From Entropy)

Macademi Wasshoi!: October 6
"Magician's Academy revolves around Takuto Hasegawa, who attends a magic academy that is not marked on any map. During a summoning spell exam, he accidentally creates a girl named Tanarot, who happens to hold enough magical power to destroy his country, but fortunately Tanarot professes undying loyalty to her "creator."" (From ANN)

Here for HQ on official website.
(new trailer added: 9/29)

Skip Beat: October 6
"Kyoko Mogami followed her true love Sho to Tokyo to support him while he made it big as an idol. But he's casting her out now that he's famous! Kyoko won't suffer in silence--she's going to get her sweet revenge by beating Sho in show biz!" (From Mangaupdates)

ef - a tale of melodies: October 7
The sequel to the 2007 TV series “ef - a tale of memories,” based on the adult PC game from Minori.

Vampire Knight Guilty: October 7
The sequel to Vampire Knight.

Chaos;Head: October 9
"Based on a Japanese visual novel developed by 5bp and Nitroplus, Chaos;Head is a delusional murder mystery story, with strong elements of gore, psychology and science fiction. The game uses a feature called a "delusional trigger", which allows the player adjust the ‘realness’ or ‘surrealness’ of the perspective of the main character, which directly affects the storyline. The main character, Takumi is a troubled young man who struggles to distinguish reality from his delusions, while being pursued by the perpetrator of a series of bloody murders, (or so he thinks). His travels take him in and around Shibuya, Tokyo and his adventures bring him in contact with various scientific themes such as the concepts of matter, antimatter, and the Dirac sea." (From AniDB)

Visual Novel ad
I would suggest checking out both the trailer and the visual novel ad since I personally find the VN ad alot better.

Tytania: October 9
"In a future where mankind is spread amongst the stars in the vastness of space, the TAITANIA family has been able to build a large empire through intimation and economic might. In the year 446, the city-state of EURIA rebels against the tyranny of TAITANIA control. Their isolated act of revolt starts a sequence of events which strains the careful alliances and agreements within the empire, as factions and associations take action to exploit the situation to their best advantage. In the ensuing turmoil, ambitious members of the Taitania Royalty begin to move against each other in an effort settle old grievances and seize control of the family. What started as an act of rebellion in EURIA, quickly expands to a civil war - with the wealth and power of the empire up for grabs for who ever is brave enough to aspire for it." (From AniDB)

(new trailer added: 9/29)

Michiko to Hatchin: October 16
"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." (From ANN)

Uwaaah, this has a lot of great info, thanks!

I'm looking forward to the new Gundam~ I'm surprised that I hadn't heard about it yet, but I've been paying much more attention to the manga scene than anime recently.

you sure you posted nodame just for me :S
Well, my top picks this season are nodame, gunDAMN!, casshern (very surprised about this one), and linebarrel (cliche, perhaps, but robots = win).

I am curious, which one of these title(s) is/are bones'?
Or is bones just finishing up xamd, 20 faces, and the friggin' awesome soul eater?

Bones is not currently working on any of the upcoming animes, and as you said- they are only working on the three animes that you listed - xamd, 20 faces and soul eater.
