Note: All times are given in a 24 hour format, using what I call relative day time where times are extended to show which day they belong to. For instance, Friday morning at 1:30AM would become Thursday at 25:30 to show that the episode aired late Thursday night.

By no means is this list complete, these are just the series I’m planning to watch. Check out MOON PHASE for an entire listing and AndrewLB’s Winter 2006 Wiki for who’s tentatively subbing what.

A brief run-down on my choice of shows:

  • Nerima Daikon Brothers – The director is Watanabe Shinichi (aka. Nabeshin). For that reason alone, this should be pretty interesting.
  • Magikano – This series sounds like magical girl/harem-romance fluff, but I’m willing to give it an episode to see how it is. It’s airing on Tuesdays though, so if it doesn’t impress, I probably won’t stick with it.
  • Kashimashi – Boy gets hit on the head by a UFO, turns into a girl, and shoujo-ai ensues. This is probably the series I’m looking the most forward to this next season after having read some of the manga.
