Anticipated Anime Releases for 2009

Beveridge Gives his Top Five Anime Picks for the New Year

There’s a whole lot of anime coming out in the next year and the solicitations for the first quarter are pretty much in with a few hints of what’s beyond. With lots of collections on the way, new high def releases and more, here’s what’s rising to the top of our lists!

 
Hayate the Combat Butler
 
A 52 episode series, it never gets old which is a major accomplishment. It combines just about every type of humor used in anime - slapstick, exaggeration, romantic hi-jinks, misunderstandings, parodies, fourth-wall-breaking, a snarky narrator - with a very likable cast of characters that change along the way and a light plot to make a great comedy with heart.
 
 
Clannad
 
The latest entry from the VisualArts/Key library with animation by Kyoto Animation is coming from Sentai Filmworks much to fans joy. With lush animation and very character centric stories, it’s one that will definitely please fans of shows like Kanon and Air.
 
 
Monster -
 
An exciting detective-psychological-thriller for adults, the manga has finished its run in the US and a live action movie is in the works. Viz Media’s anime adaptation should hit in 2009 with seventy-five episodes worth of material Naoki Urusawa has a lot in the works for US release in various forms and this is one of the big ones.
 
 
Evangelion 1.01: You Are (Not) Alone
 
The first of four theatrical retellings of the classic storyline that continues to be a mover and shaker in the anime world should hit in 2009 and that will bring in new fans and old fans and likely start up quite a few debates once again!
 
 
Gundam 00
 
With a strong as following as ever, a second season riding high in Japan and some of the most alluring character designs of any Gundam series, this is one that will have many fans eagerly awaiting its release, especially after its airings on the Sci-Fi Channel.

been watching G00 on scifi, its pretty good though at the moment its kind of like a mash up of all the other gundams borrow elements here and there but at the same time it trys to be uniquwe and i think so far its doing it fairly well. as for the rest havent seen them but im always up for a new anime least  a newly dubbed one.Oh Anyone by chance heard of any news about animes coming out in Hi def??the article mentions it but ....well it doesnt  list any! I wonder if Code geass will come on Blu ray??it did in Japan most likely no though..

Gundam 00 looks pretty good so far.  I donn't now why but that part where the Trieze like character was ttalking to the bservers ansd they were each represented by a different period of art was just really wild and  cool.  It was like something out of The Prisoner. The Lady Un like character and the Forecaster look like their gonna be pretty cool too.   Looking forward to seeing more of the Gundam characters.

It's cool to see Monster is coming out, I remember wanting that one a looooong time ago. But 75 episodes?! Not sure I'll want to fork over the cash all those DVDs...unless they're kind and put several episodes per disc.
