Canaan Official Site

The series now renamed Canaan. Still the same setup though.


Beretta 92F. Nice handgun.

Viper's Creed/ ヴァイパーズ・クリード

Official Site

A hardcore sci-fi show from Shinji Aramaki, director of the Appleseed movies, with production from AIC. The story focuses on a PMC/ private military corporation (like Blackwater USA) in the late 21st century after the war. Just like what happened to Blackwater USA in Iraq, soon this PMC has some relationship challenges with regular armed forces after the war ended.

Soon in January 2009.

That's all I know so far.

Druaga, Sword of Uruk/ ドルアーガの塔 ~the Sword of URUK~sequel

Official Site

I liked the main picture showing Jill carrying Fatina while the reflection below is Kaaya, the cleric. Needless to say, it is one of better GONZO anime offering besides godawful (coughs)...I mean popular Strike Witches.

Slightly longer Preview.

One of sleeper hits of 2008, the sequel should be be as consistent. Will wait and see if I am was right.

Madhouse new anime for Jan 2009, Rideback/ ライドバック

Set in future, the story talks about a female student who is close to her bike/mecha, embroiled in a ongoing student political movement. Madhouse is responsible for this thus gained my attention.

Based on 8 volume manga by Kasahara Tetsuo.
