Winter 2009 Anime

Fall season is approaching its end, some series are concluding, some continue to the winter season. But with the start of the winter season, new and old-new anime starts airing. Some of them have taken up my interest of course.

White Album

White Album

The first one is White Album. It’s about a couple, college student and idol singer, who are facing lots of obstacles. This anime has two awesome seiyuu stars, Hirano Aya and Mizuki Nana. White Album could even be some kind of seiyuu battle between these two, I think.

Minami-ke Okaeri

Minami-ke Okaeri

Once again we will see what’s going on in Minami household and how much our favorite three sisters have grown up.

Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo

Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo

A story set into the time when people have migrated to many places in the universe. A girl from one human colony encounters a malevolent artificial intelligence and is joined by an Inter-gallactical Police officer and two other persons.



A boy named Daichi Kakeru bought a melon juice soda from vending machine but the liquid from the can has magically transformed into a girl. He named her Melon after the drink. A few more Akikan (Empty Can) girls appeared, who needed a kiss in order to infuse carbon dioxide in their bodies.


Sora wo Miageru Shoujo no Hitomi ni Utsuru Sekai

Akuto, the main source of energy is running low and the Heavens, a world of islands, hidden beyond time, floating above ours, has united against the Magical Kingdom whom uses the most energy. To save both the Magical Kingdom and the Heavens and restore the flow of akuto, the Magical King Munto must follow a vision and find the girl Yumemi in the lower world. Yumemi herself is just a normal girl except that she is the only one who can see the islands of the Heavens floating above. [source from ANN]

Maria Holic


A sophomore named Kanako enrolls in an all-girls school due to her phobia of men. Expecting that she will finally find her yuri love, Kanako meets Maria, who happens to be the most popular and beautiful girl in school. But this girl turns out to be a little different.

Higurashi Rei

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei

OVA sequel to Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Kai. What will happen next to our hero and heroines from the lovely Hinamizawa village?

I believe that it will be another good season of anime. I have high expectations for White Album, and am really curious about Akikan and Maria Holic. And of course as a big fan of Higurashi, the OVA will be the biggest pleasure for me.
