This is more of a personal note to myself to keep up with what series being released in 2009 I plan to buy (as of now) and to see if I actually get them. There are a few series from last year still being released that I'm collecting and things released from then and before I haven't bought yet or am waiting on a collection for, but I'm only going to deal with new series. For now, I guess. License-rescues will probably be added if there are any licensed and scheduled to be released this year that interest me.
On an unrelated note, my previous entry made me AoD's 100th blogger. Wahoo.
Definite 2009 releases
Aria the Natural
Aria the OVA ~Arietta~/Aria the Origination
Evangelion 1.0: You Are (Not) Alone
Possible 2009 releases
KenIchi: The Mighiest Disciple
Nabari no Ou
Oh! Edo Rocket
...And that's it. FUNimation's New Show A Go Go event added a couple shows that I will buy and might buy, but besides those, there doesn't seem to be much I'm looking forward to being released in 2009 so far. I know that Aria the Origination
and Aria the OVA ~Arietta~
aren't licensed, but I'm expecting Nozomi to acquire them. That hint Dark Lord Kleckner had about a "packaged deal" in his weekly TSRI threads makes me think both shows are licensed and will be released together in one collection this year. Big Windup!
doesn't have an official date, but I'm really
hoping it will be released this year. You never know with FUNimation, though. The same can be said with Sgt. Frog
. Depending on how the series is handled, I may get it if it's released this year.
