Well, with spring slowly coming to a end, the Summer season of Anime will be rolling out. And with that… I still wonder…

Where is Haruhi S2? Me thinks they’re lying to us. IT’S ALL LIES. LIKE THE CAKE.

. . . Moving along.

Mahou Tsukai ni Taisen na Koto : Natsu no Sora

Yume Kikuchi, a girl who can use magic, goes to Tokyo to be an apprentice mage to the handsome Masami Oyamada (a professional mage). In Tokyo, Yume learns about magic, helping people, and various other things on her way to being a mage. but she soon also finds out that even just magic alone isnt enough to make someone truly happy… – (Taken from Anime News Network)

Flyin’ Fork YES. <3 While I know it as Someday’s Dreamers (Which I will probably use in the title… it’s shorter), HELL YES. Magical animes are a love of mine, so I will most likely be catchin’ this show. Deffinately checking this out.

Chocolate Underground

“From 5 o’clock this evening, chocolate is illegal.” It is an amazing law. The story takes place in some present-day country. The Good For You party has won the elections and announced the Chocolate Prohibition law. They prohibit all sweet things, including chocolates, because they are harmful to one’s health. “We can’t stand such an absurd rule”. Two boys, Huntley and Smudger, stand up to fight against the law. With help from Louise and other friends, they begin to bootleg chocolate. – (Taken from AnimeNfo)

EHWHAT. Noooo. CHOCOLATE? ILLEGAL?! I must find out the ending of this story! The characters look interesting and the storyline interesting. While a bit odd, I’ll be sure to check it out.

Hidamari Sketch x365

Yuno has just begun school where she always wanted, Yamabuki High School. She moves out and into an apartment by herself in a complex called Hidamari-so, which is right in front of the school. There, she meets a classmate, Miyako, and a senior student, Hiro. Yuno’s days become hectic as she begins meeting the strange artists that live in her complex. Although she’s not used to her new life style, she begins to actualize her dream while being with these gentle friends. – (Taken from AniDB)

I’m a sucker for animes relating to artists, so this one I’ll be sure to check out. =3 While I never finished watching Sketchbook ~full color’S~ I did enjoy it. Hopefully I’ll finish this series. Dx;;;

Telepathy Shoujo Ran

Ran is a bright and energetic first-grader in junior high school who possesses supernatural abilities. Together with Midori (her friend who also has supernatural powers) and Rui, the threesome is constantly embroiled in mysterious circumstances. Ran is troubled by her powers because it seems to spark off the ill intentions of people in contact with her. However, with the support of her family and peers, Ran learns to deal with her ‘other’ side and accepts who she is. The threesome also learn how to team up as a whole and solve these mysterious events. – (Taken from Anime News Network)

Magical/Supernatural abilities? Count me in! Might or might not keep going with this, depending on the first few episodes. I’m curious as to the full story. =3

Strike Witches

The world had received the attack from the existence of the mystery that appeared suddenly. Only girls who have magic can fight against them. They install arms in an own body, and fight in the sky, the land, and the sea. Fights of girls who defend the world start now. – (Taken from AniDB)

I haven’t had a damn good Action-style anime for a while now. Normally I’m watching Slice-of-Life and Romance stuff, so this will break the pattern. The series sounds very interesting, so I hope to have the time to watch. Body parts as weapons? Sounds kinda like Saikano. Just hopin’ for not too much Military Lingo, it confuses me. When I watch Transformers all I really get is “Bring the Rain” LAWLZ.

  1. I really like the art of Mahou Tsukai ni Taisen na Koto : Natsu no Sora

    How did you find out what anime is coming this summer?

  2. Normally I spot it on a Lucky*Star/General Anime Guild on Gaia, but I saw Fang-Tan’s post on it, and a link to this post, which had a nice list of Summer Animes.

    Still wishin’ Haruhi S2 would show up… La di daaa~

  3. Oh wow… They have the whole line up already… Thank you for the link :)

  4. Chocolate Underground has me thinking of Library Wars. Except it’s chocolate instead of books.

    Forget summer! I want Fall!
