I’ve been bummed by the initial fall release schedule. Besides Railgun, there wasn’t one other show that seemed interesting, but I couldn’t help but feel a twinge of deja vu. Because I know I said the same thing on a few blogs back when the summer preview was doing the rounds. I think back then, there were only two shows that piqued my interest, and you could argue that both were sequels: Umineko and Spice and Wolf 2. But as it turns out, like Low on Hit Points has mentioned, the summer season has been excellent. I can’t remember a season in which there’s been so many shows that I’d consider scoring an 8-10.
My only goal for my summer preview was to do a better job than I did with the winter preview, in which I skipped mention of certain shows that I ended up watching anyway, clearly showing my lack of prophetic skills. Thankfully I set the bar pretty low then. If you have any thoughts for further improvement in the inevitable fall preview, feel free to drop a comment.
