View Full Version : New anime for fall?? shoujo
10-16-2007, 11:00 PM
Looking for some new anime to watch-
Currently watching Disgaea, Please Save Our King (a little behind I know), Fushigi Boshi, Kamichama Karin, and Story of saiunkoku. Just finished Nanatsuiro Drops and starting to give up on finding Powerpuff Z. What's just debuted in Japan or about to come out in the U.S?

Not necessarily shoujo, but a lot of my female friends are watching (and liking) Clannad. Quote one of them: "Are you sure this was a dating sim?"

Shugo Chara! (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=8182) debuted a little while ago.

The only show airing this Fall that is definitely shoujo (as in "runs in a shoujo manga anthology and that's it") is Shugo Chara, a magical girl show from Peach Pit.
Rental Magica has a shoujo manga, but said manga is based on shounen light novels and there's also a shounen manga adaptation. A bit too much like overkill for what seems to be a rather mediocre show, in my opinion!
Out of other recent shows, um... Romeo x Juliet is shoujo (manga runs in Asuka, although it's originally a TV property). Kirarin Revolution keeps trucking on, although I think it's pretty terrible personally. I think one of the Precure shows is still going, although I guess you'd have probably watched that by now in some shape or form.
Oh, and Dennou Coil has a shoujo manga adaptation and is utterly awesome, although I don't think it's really very much like the other shows you've mentioned.

Special A (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2007-10-04/special-a-shojo-manga-to-be-animated-for-television) is in the works, though there's no air date yet.
U.S.-wise, you might want to try the upcoming Hell Girl anime.
