Here is a short list of the Winter 2009 / 2010 anime that is coming out (not including OVAs and movies).

I have split the list into 3 sections - those I think will be hot, those that will have mixed reviews from the audiences, but still get a lot to watch them, and then the bottom feeders - those that will have the lowest possible viewership. Feel free to comment on them all. After all, it's just my own gut feelings for where these series will pan out.

HOT SERIES

Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu
This one takes the top prize in my book! A school where ranking is everything. In F class - you got it, the bottom rung - is where our heroine come forth. She decides that F class is not going to take it anymore and rallies them up to begin to take over the school. But wait, it doesnt stop there - the students in the school are capable of summoning fantasy creatures to do their biddings - so its an all out war for domination.

Durarara!!
This takes place in a version of Ikebukuro that makes it look like everyone there is super hyper all the time. It focuses on a set of teens in the neighborhood, and their lives and trials and tribulations with romance. Filled with tons of quirky things and extras and one shot inclusions and the such.

Dance in the Vampire Bund
Are you wondering how the special areas for Vampires begin in Darker than Black? Although not really associated with it at all, you will be left thinking that this IS the official story for that. Blood, gore, horror, drama - everything messy you could ever want. God only knows how they are going to censor this one.

So Ra No Wo To
A girl's dream comes true - she manages to enlist in the army. The stories focus on her and the unit she is assigned to, as they defend what is precious to the. The art seriously looks like the K-ON girls in army uniforms...

Nodame Cantabile Finale
Not much need to describe this. This is the finale for the Nodame Cantabile series.

Omamori Hiari
Cat allergy alert! But with a different twist. The main character in this story is your typical boy living all alone with his female childhood friend coming over to wake him up and make breakfast for him every morning. On his 16th birthday, the omamori, a red ball, that his parents gave him as a protective charm wears off - and the demons begin to attack him. To save the day comes the super sexy cat spirit samurai demon hunter. Unfortunately for him, he is allergic to cats...

MIXED SERIES

Katanagatari
Great story - just as the title suggests - the story is focusing on special katana's. The head of a special martial arts clan that resides on a secluded island with his sister finds out about 12 legendary katanas made by a legendary blacksmith. Intrigued by the tales told, he decides to head out to claim these swords for himself. The art on the other hand may throw a LOT of people off. It is not quite traditional.

Seikon no Qwaser
Upon first look, you ask, why is this here? Looks cool - some guy that can manipulate iron on the elemental scale attending a school full of other kids that can do similar things. Only problem ... think Queen's Blade - plenty of breast shots, and breast milk... not quite your average anime...


Hidamari Sketch X***
Yet another Hidamari Sketch... I think they are going to do a Y and Z too...

Harukanaru Toki no Naka de 3
This is probably based on the first PS2 game, and not the other 2 later games, nor the alternate universe tellings. The main female character chases after a mysterious boy at school and gets transported from earth to an alternate dimension, Kyou - the 3rd dimension of time. This place resembles Kyoto in the Heian era. Here she gets caught up in the battles of the time, and becomes Hakuryuu no Miko - the priestess of the White Dragon God. She finds out that the boy she chased WAS the White Dragon God in human form, but he cannot return her home until he can regain his powers.

OOKAMIKAKUSHI (Hidden God)
Only because the general premise has been done to death many times already do I place this in the middle category. Each episode will be a story that happens during a particular time period, from the perspective of one person. Each story seems to have nothing to do with each other, but ultimately in the end, a tale is woven between each story to unveil the true horror of what had been going on the whole time.

GOOD LORD - THESE CAME OUT

Ladies vs Butlers
The main protagonist is the first male to enroll in what used to be an all-girls' school. The school used to teach maids, but now teaches maids and butlers.

Chu-Bra!!
The entire school finds out the main character likes to wear black lace panties on the first day of school. Rolling with the punches, she then forms an Underwear Club to support wearing different type of underwear and lingerie to school, and at the same time learn about their young, developing bodies.

Hanamaru Kindergarten
It's kids in a kindergarten running around squealing and yelling and making all kinds of noises. It's a comedy sorta in the vein of Hare to Guu - but without the adult themes. Just cute kids getting themselves into trouble.

Tose O'Neill's Kewpie
Um, this will either be the lowest on the low end totem pole, or an unimaginable sleeper hit. I cannot find ANY information on this show... NOBODY wants to review this.

Nope. Nobody has written up anything on CR yet about the new series coming out for the Winter 2009 / 2010 yet. This is the first post for that topic. Unless they have a screwy heading for it or dont mention anything about the coming season. Nothing came up under searches.

Someone move this to the Anime section please.
