Xenoglasia may be worth a look. It looks like it may be a nice fluff full of cute girls show. With some mechs, too, apparently. Maybe it will suprise me with a good story or something as well.

Seto no Hanayome. I read a bit of the manga and it was rather entertaining. I only read the first few chapters, but I don't remember the girl being a fighter of anysort (though her father ran a mermaid/man yakuza of sorts) despite the website giving that sort of impression. I'll be watching at least a few episodes of this one.

Claymore. I've been somewhat interested in Claymore and I hear it has a good story, but I never cared for the art and I'm entrenced in over 30 other manga series as it is. I'll give this one a try though and see what its like.

Seto no Hanayome definitely has a great look to it, and probably will be one of the series I check out once some episodes turn out. Claymore also looks interesting I am interesting based on the name which also the name of a type of sword so I am hoping for some good ole sword fighting. And lastly Ookiku Furikabutte aka BASEBALL ANIME! with spring training coming in the near future I am so excited for some sort of baseball I am definitely going to check this out, it's probably like most other sports anime but hey I am excited.

Claymore sounds cool, but this season needs more shows than just that. The only manga I can think of with a reasonable head start right now though is 666 Satan.

I read a bit of Claymore in a preview book. It sounds interesting and I like the art... I might check out the anime.

Claymore is what I'm most looking forward to. I really like the manga so hopefully the anime will be just as good. Nothing else really looks that interesting to me now but I'd like to give Seto no Hanayome a try.

There's a promo clip available off one of their web pages but it's a windoze only product. I sure as heck am not sure where the giant robot thing got worked into the show either but it certainly looks like a "Sell! Sell! Sell!" show.

Seto no Hanayome sounds mildly interesting but sadly the only thing that goes through my head when I see the title is Koyanagi Rumiko's hit from way back in 1972 (which was about a somewhat different subject). Let's hope the tune doesn't get used in the show.

i'm thinking it's a parody of Xenosaga, hence the title.

I can't say anything really jumped out at me as totally interesting, though I'll probably try and check some of them out. I just want to know if there's going to be a 3rd Season of Tsubasa Chronicle. ANN has it listed but there really hasn't been anything offical saying there's going to be a 3rd season, not to mention I know a lot of people complained about too much filler in the 2nd.

The website is just emphasizing San's (the mermaid girl) Yakuza pride. Like any anime series, all Yakuza are either worthless punks, or if they are the main characters, are filled with great amounts of pride and are something to be admired. Seto no Hanayome follows the latter.

In addition to Seto no Hanayome, I'm really looking forward to Claymore, since I found out just now they're making a series of it. I only found the manga recently myself. Once you get past the somewhat strange art (very childlike faces), there's a lot of depth to the story. I obviously won't get into any details, but it's a very nice mix of deep character development and good old sword combat. If you liked Berserk, you'll probably love Claymore.

It's nice too see a lot of people looking forward to Claymore. I'm looking forward to it as well. I've read all but one of the 6 volumes of the manga released in the US so far, and I really like it. Sure the art is a little dull (perhaps it will be better in color), but it's got an great story going right now, which makes reading it worthwhile. Hopefully the anime adaptation will do it justice.

Ookiku Furikabutte: I've been looking for a good sports anime, there really haven't been any good ones since Princess Nine (no I do not count Eyeshield 21 as a real sports anime).

Everything feels either to kiddy or way to otakuish.
