(I am in love...) Fall Anime

In the wake of my sadness of Code Geass R2 AND D.Gray-man anime ending, I'm finding new series to watch and read... I am in love with Kuroshitsuji... It is awesome beyond words. It's the one series I am certainly going to watch this fall. I also downloaded the first episodes of two other series that looked good, Chaos;Head and Toradora! (there seems to be an excessive amount in punctuation in this season's series...).

Chaos;Head appealed to my sense of 'fucked up shit is interesting' so I got the first episode. Basically some socially reclusive otaku has lots of delusions and gets wrapped up with recent violent murders and other gruesome events. Also, there are a bunch of girls. Sort of like a harem with blood and gore. I like it okay. None of the characters are immediately endearing (I think the girl otaku is funny), but I'll watch at least a few more episodes. Subs by m.3.3.w

Toradora is cute and funny, a kind of counterbalance to the stuff I usually like... (It seemed especially refreshing after I got finished reading Tokyo Akazukin, which deserves its own entry for sheer fucked-up-ness...). There are two misunderstood people who end up helping each other try to get the affections of the other person's best friend. One is constantly misjudged by his appearance and the other is violent and volatile, but timid and shy when it comes to her crush. And also, a retarded bird. Seriously, it's retarded. As I said, it's a cute show. I like it. ^^ Subs by ggkthx.

Lastly, there is my newest obsession, Kuroshituji (Black Butler). It's about Ciel, the 12 year old head of the noble Phantomhive family and his super awesome amazing hot demon butler, Sebastian. It's hilarious and awesome at the same time... and it has demons. That's more than enough for me. Shinsen does subs, yay. Episode 2 is gonna be awesome...

Tokyo Akazukin was... interesting. I liked it... but I guess that's just me... I've certainly read more disturbing things than that. I personally think the Battle Royale manga was worse. Besides, I love demons and shit, so it was right up my alley.

I also have a sort of 'thing' for messed up Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf... <<

It'll be a good fall... (let's not discuss school, k?)
