Summer 2011: Shows I’m considering
Greetings, folks. As usual, it’s been quite a long while since I last had the time to update this blog.
As you can probably guess from the title, this post is a continuation of the one I did back in Fall, 2010. I’ve picked up a hefty lot of them this season, but chances are that I’ll end up dropping half or more of them.
- ダンタリアンの書架 / Dantalian no Shoka
Hugh Anthony Disward inherits an old mansion and a personal library from his grandfather. In the basement of the mansion, he meets a mysterious girl, Dalian. She is a Dantalian and a gateway to “Dantalian’s bookshelf”, which stores the prohibited books of the demons.
“Gensho (Illusory Books)”, the prohibited books, endanger the balance of the world, but people are fascinated by the taboo. Hugh and Dalian solve the cases involving Gensho with their ability to access the Dantalian bookshelf.
Group I’ll most likely be following for this: m.3.3.w fansubs
- 異国迷路のクロワーゼ / Ikoku Meiro no Croisée / La croisée dans un labyrinthe étranger
The story takes place in the second half of the 19th century, as Japanese culture gains popularity in the West. A young Japanese girl, Yune, accompanies a French traveller, Oscar, on his journey back to France, and offers to help at the family’s ironwork shop in Paris. Oscar’s nephew and shop-owner Claude reluctantly accepts to take care of Yune, and we learn how those two, who have so little in common, get to understand each other and live together in the Paris of the 1800s.
Group I’ll most likely be following for this: Interrobang Fansubs
- だぶるじぇい / Double J
In a school where after school activities are mandatory among all students, Hajime and her friend Sayo come across a new club that they have never seen before. The club is called “The Cultural Activity Preservation Club.” The two enter the room to find all kinds of analog jobs and activities, such as handcrafting mats and toothpicks. This is a unique cultural manga mixed with comedy so as not to bore you, this is Double J!.
Group I’ll most likely be following for this: Hiryuu Fansubs
- いつか天魔の黒ウサギ / Itsuka Tenma no Kuro-Usagi
Taito has been really sleepy lately, and keeps dreaming of a female vampire who says she has given him her “poison.” Sometimes he even thinks he hears her voice when he’s awake. But after surviving an accident that should have killed him, Taito’s world changes drastically and he realizes that his dreams are more real than he thought.
Group I’ll most likely follow for this:
