Now that i've finally finished with the spring anime reviews (or have I? look they've starting subbing Senkou no Night Raid again! Though I'm not sure I want to continue watching it, we'll see...) I can talk about the show I'm interrested in this summer. Which aren't legion, this is a pretty dry season.

I love Fuyumi Ono enough that I'll be watching Shiki even though I think the character design are atrocious and I've been impressed neither by the first episode nor the first volume of the manga. For the premise we have an isolated town surrunded by cedar trees forest (they use to make coffin, the region's speciality) and series of suspicious death by anemia after a big gothic style castle has been build on top of the hill above the village. I smell vampire.

Occult Academy is the other cool looking supernatural show, with a dramedy set in 1999 (are we already nostalgic about the 90s? yay!) revolving around an occult obsessed highschool and a time traveller from 2012 (1999 and 2012? That's a lot of appocalyptic dates) trying to prevent an alien invasion in the future. The first two episodes have been pretty dam good, with some excellent comedic timing, awesomely establishing the two leads (especially Maya, the daughter of the recently deceased principal of the occult academy; who is badass, impatient, intelligent and has a hate/love relationship with the occult - very well rounded as a character already), and i rather love the tongue in cheek attitude to occult elements already.

The other series I might be interrested in is Osaka Hamlet which i don't believe has premiered yet and seems to be a slice of life show about a family in Osaka.

Of course there's also the Black Lagoon OAV Roberta's Blood trail which I will not miss for the world ♥

I should also mention Highschool of the Dead which right now I'm watching with a sort of horrified fascination. It's Zombie Appocalypse meets panty shots, with some excellent production values, black humour tone and action scenes and with an extremely misogynistic narrative so far.
