Legend: 13 Divine 2 Kiiragi 1 Prooof 3 Takaii Not covering

With the new fall season starting tomorrow, here’s a quick overview of what the plans are blogging-wise. Please note that this schedule may change in the upcoming weeks, but will likely remain very close to what’s listed here. As usual, I’ll be watching much more than I’ll be blogging, so Suzuku and Takaii have been brought in to help cover some other shows. Prooof is continuing on with Bleach and Nurarihyon no Mago like originally planned, whereas Kiiragi is going back to being the resident One Piece writer. If for some reason you haven’t checked out the Fall 2010 Preview already, all links in the schedule will take you to the series’ corresponding entry. I’ve added a lot of new promotional videos since the preview was originally published, so it’s worth checking out again even if you have.

* More after the jump on some plans for the new season. Please note that the the reader’s poll on top 5 picks of the season will be closing tonight. As always, feedback is appreciated.

RAINBOW: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin – 26 (END)

「Over the rainbow」

It was pretty ambitious of the writers to slip in one more arc for Mario and go from start to finish in a mere episode, but they managed to pull it off and wrap up the second of four major manga arcs with this adaptation.

Bleach – 290

Komamura releases his bankai, Kokuju Tengenmyo, against Tousen who claims his powers have surpassed all the Espada and shinigami. Tousen states that it is easy for him to target Tengenmyo’s weaknesses, and that Komamura never believed that an enemy couldn’t be defeated in one blow.

K-ON!! – 26 (Extra)

「番外編 訪問!」 (Bangai-hen – Houmon!)
“Extra Chapter – Visit!”

The second bonus episode of K-ON takes place some time after the girls get accepted into the same university but before their graduation ceremony. Focusing on the yearbook photos and the vast majority’s discontent over their picture — particularly Yui — this final showing brought both sweet and funny moments to help tie-in the actual ending. Oh yeah, a surprise announcement about a K-ON movie was made at the very end too.

So-Ra-No-Wo-To – 13

「空の音・夢ノ彼方」 (Sora no Oto – Yume no Kanata)
“Sound of the Sky – Beyond the Dream”

What better way to mark the end of the third Anime no Chikara series than with the second bonus episode of their first one. Unlike episode 7.5, this latest one takes place at the end of the series, after the ceasefire was called between Helvetia and the Roman Empire.

Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin – 13 (END)

「マヤの文明」 (Maya no Bunmei)

Just when we thought it was all over, the writers slip in another huge twist at the very end by reviving the threat of Nostradamus’ Key.

It almost pains me to have to refer to this as my last post on GIANT KILLING, because this is only the start of much more awesome things to come for ETU. Unfortunately, none of it will be animated, at least not anytime in the immediate future.

Mitsudomoe – 13 (END)

「丸井さんの家庭の日常」 (Marui-san no Katei no Nichijou)
“Everyday Life at the Marui House”

There’s a second season coming in the near future, but Mitsudomoe concludes its first run with an incredibly strong showing that had me laughing helplessly on one particular skit.

BLACK LAGOON: Roberta’s Blood Trail – 01

「Collateral Massacre」

After a nearly four year hiatus, we get the glorious return of Black Lagoon with this OVA series, titled “Roberta’s Blood Trail”. Even though I say it’s an OVA, this is in fact the third season of the series, which is indicated further by the episode itself being counted as #25 of the anime.

SEKIREI ~Pure Engagement~ – 13 (END)

「真実ノ絆」 (Shinjitsu no Kizuna)
“True Bonds”

Following the collapse of Teito Tower and the conclusion of this second season, the “to be continued” message at the very end left the door open to a possible third adaptation.

One Piece – 467

「死んでも助ける ルフィVS海軍戦闘開始」 (Shindemo Tasukeru – Rufi VS Kaigun Batoru Sutāto)
“Even If It Means Death! Luffy vs. the Navy; The Battle Starts!”

After telling Whitebeard of the new execution schedule, Luffy promptly rushes into the battlefield to save Ace.

Seitokai Yakuindomo – 13 (END)

「生徒会役員共!乙!」 (Seitokai Yakuindomo! Otsu!)
“Student Council Executives! Yeah!”

After faithfully following the manga for the past twelve episodes, the series finishes animating the second volume’s material and throws in an anime original look back on the days of SYD. Best part is, it’s nothing like we and Tsuda remember.

Nurarihyon no Mago – 12

Continuing on from last time, Rikuo, Yuki-onna, Aotaba and Kubinashi notice the distressed Karasu Tengu, but he flies off without noticing them. Later, Gozumaru and Mezumaru reveal that the Supreme Commander Nurarihyon has disappeared and they are searching for him.
