The New Season Begins Saturday -- Fall Anime Calendar

Actually, we have already seen a couple of the new shows: a preview of Working'!!, and the the first episodes of the new season of Battle Spirits.

But things get going in earnest on Saturday, with shows such as Fate/Zero; and , the new ecchi fantasy from Oonuma Shin (ef, Baka to Test). There will also be the new season of Bakuman; the official premiere of Working'!!; the ecchi comedy Maji de Watashi ni Koi Shinasai; and the unpredictable future fiction story Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon.

Sunday is one of the fullest days of the week, along with Thursday and Saturday. This Sunday, Hunter x Hunter and Phi Brain get started.

Monday comes the new Tamayura series and the interesting Kimi to Boku, a slice of life show following a group of boys.

Tuesday we have one of my most anticipated shows, Chihayafuru, about a girl who is a champion of the Japanese poetry card game. And two more ecchi comedies, Maken-ki and Mashiro-iro.

No new shows start on Wednesday, which is the weakest day of the new season.

Thursday we have the promising thriller Persona 4, and the animation of the popular school life novel Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai.

Friday, we have three sequels: the second series of the excellent yaoi romantic comedy Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi; the final series of Shakugan no Shana; and the new Last Exile series, which I am very much looking forward to, if only for Yuuki Aoi in a new role.

Many shows will not premiere until next week or later: Gundam AGE, Mirai Nikki, Ika Musume, Un-go, Guilty Crown, Ben-tou, Ad-lib Anime Laboratory. Lots of future goodies.

@relentlessflame -- Thanks! Fixed. Somehow didn't make it from my db to the page.

noticed this in a previous post as well. Shouldn't it be novel adaptation instead of manga for Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai?
Sorry if I'm mistaken

@anonymous -- Thanks for the correction. As it says in my calendar and in my season preview, the original work is a novel. Slip of the mind, lol.
