The Fall 2009 Anime Preview Guide

by Anime News Network's Editorial Team, Oct 12th 2009

Welcome to Anime News Network's Fall 2009 Preview Guide! By now, you know the rules; our critics write up their impressions instantly and they get posted as they go along, liveblog-style. Each critic will cover as many shows as they can handle, resulting in alternate takes on most every show (sometimes on more than one episode!).

This is an ongoing guide; throughout the next two weeks (give or take a few days), we'll be updating as often as possible with new perspectives on new episodes. New reviews will be posted as they're written.

Please remember that this is a preview guide. It is designed to give you a taste of the first episode (or the first few episodes) of a show with a preliminary opinion. These are not intended to be blanket judgments of these series as a whole. All reviews use the same ratings scale: 1-5, with 1 being the lowest.
Click on the critic's name to check out their episode reviews! The newest reviews will always appear at the TOP of each critic's page, so if you're wondering what's new, just click the critic and their latest work will pop right up. Scroll down to see earlier reviews. The newest title in each critic's page will also be bolded for your convenience.
