Oh god, I’ve been letting Expo Expo dust over. D:  All the series that aren’t continuing on into the fall season are over now,  and I think Summer ’09 was one of the better seasons for a large quantity of quality shows, which is in stark contrast with the “meh”-ness of the current fall shows.  Spoilers ahead obviously…

Anime Update: Rough Draft Style

Oh man, if there’s one thing I’ll miss about living on campus it’s having reliable internet access.  Right now my housemates and I are trying to get it up and properly functioning, so I’ll make this quick before my wireless decides to cut out again.  This will also let me get in a couple words on some series that I don’t make constant posts about.

I finally finished viewing all the new shows for this season that looked interesting, and I’m glad to report that they all seem decent or better overall.  There’s also a bunch of OVAs like Spice and Wolf that’ll be premiering at some point, so things look good.  Three series that stood out to me were Shangri-La, Ristorante Paradiso and Eden of the East for their well-rounded nature.
