The season where the wind gets colder, snow starts to fall down… And new anime too.
[Last update: 12/09/08]
Kanzeon: The winter season is like a pass-through for the great Fall season this year. I think that this would be the perfect time to finish up all my work because this season, there’s is only a few shows that caught my interest. Here goes my much-awaited Winter Anime 2008 post, this time it would be different because I dragged Tsuiteru along for a tag-team impressions for the upcoming new shows. This should be finished a week ago but Tsui is just stupid so I have to edit this again to become a tag-team post.
Tsuiteru: We even cut classes just to finish this post up! You should all be grateful XD… Just kidding. I decided to help kanzeon on a tag-team commentary. Honestly, I didn’t donated any help on this post, just my impressions on them, so if you see any mistakes, blame Kanzeon ok? Haha..

Kan: I heard that this is having a brand new set of creators so I might give this series a second chance. Plus I love girls with guns.
