First part of my 2009 in Review article. Only shows I’ve completed watching are in this list, divided in to four tiers of descending “accumulative entertainment value”.
Senjougahara-fascination in full swing.
Poor Ami~n :(
Almost made me gay for megane-jiisan’s
Eden of the East
Seitokai no Ichizon
I’m still rooting for Key-kun’s Harem End.
Sora wo Kakeru Shoujo
Epic space colony battles. Badass Asimo deserved more screentime.
Rin Shan Kai Hou is rather cheating.
Lolicon Hocchan and musical episode made my Season.
GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class
Most educational anime I’ve watched this year.
Sora no Otoshimono
Flying panties are awesome.
Second most educational anime I’ve watched this year.
Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Rei
Resolves a lot of questions for the series + lots of focus on Rika.

Zoku Natsume Yuujin-chou: Needs more youkai.
Denpateki na Kanojo: The fastest way to happiness is to look awak from reality.
Asu no Yoichi: Better than I thought.
Hayate no Gotoku 2nd Season: J.C. Staff redeemed themselves.
Fight! Ippatsu Juuden-chan: Would’ve been Awesome tier if they didn’t overuse the urination trope.

Tokyo Magnitude 8.0: Did KEY had a hand in writing the last few episodes for this?
Ontama: Short and (bitter)sweet.
Darker than Black Ryuusei no Gemini: Didn’t learn from its predecessor.

Kurogane no Linebarrels: Only watched it for the name similarity.
Asura Cryin': Causality loops are mindfucking.
CANAAN: SUGOI SUGOI SUGOI SUGOI
Chrome-Shelled Regios: Felli was in the wrong show.

Gundam 00 2nd Season: The Innovator’s names.
WHITE ALBUM: Give me back my boyfriend.
Tower of Druaga The Sword of Uruk: Needed more Ropers.
Munto TV: Pretentious as fuck.
K-ON!: A music anime with sucky music.
Umineko no Naku Koro ni: DEEN Adaptation.
Princess Lover!: Took itself as a joke.
Kampfer: Ode to Joy.
The Sacred Blacksmith: Cecily is annoying.
Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu Purezza: WHITE ALBUM wannabe.
11eyes: The sex in the penultimate episode was just a vision? GODDAMNIT.
In total, 43 shows completed this year. I’m surprised at how much I managed to watch despite thinking about how slow this year was. Then again, I never did keep track of the number of shows I watched for the last few years…..
Part 2, which consists of other miscanellous accolades, should be up tomorrow!
