Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji – Ultimate Survivor
Gambling Apocalypse Kaiji – Ultimate Survivor
逆境無頼カイジ – Ultimate Survivor
Air Date: 2007-10-02
Episodes: ?
Summary: Kaiji is a super lazy loser with no ambition in life. He’s a full time gambler (which he sucks at) with a part time job going nowhere. His life is turned upside down when he becomes the inheritor of a 3+ million yen debt incurred by a friend (more like aquaintance he barely knows) because he co-signed the “friend’s” loan. The twist, the loan company has insane interest rates which balloons his debt, 10x the original amount. Endo, the loan representative advises Kaiji to pay off his debts by gambling on the ship Espoir, the only recourse for his situation. All kinds of gambling is available on the ship, and Kaiji learns soon enough the rules are simple: win or die.
Notes: 賭博黙示録カイジ (manga title). Kaiji is actually a genius at gambling but he can’t draw out his talent unless his life depends on it. This is because he’s too lazy to use his brain. :D Tagged this as a winner.

Notes: Kaiji takes on the debt of a friend and becomes a gambler in this psychological drama.

ED1: “Wana (罠; Trap)” by The Back Horn
Preview: Youtube 1 (raw), 2(translated), 3 (2:07min PV Special), 4 (3:26min mecha and character presentation)
Summary: “It is the year A.D. 2307. Fossil fuels on Earth have been depleted entirely, with mankind turning to the next available power source: solar energy. During this time, 3 orbital elevators with solar power generation systems are built, each under control by the Union (formerly United States of America), the Human Reformation League (Russia, China and India) and the AEU (Europe). However, not all countries are able to enjoy the benefits of this system, leading to widespread resentment and war. Arising out of the conflict, a mysterious non-profit military organization known as Celestial Being appears, dedicated to end all warfare using Mobile Suits called Gundam. This begins the stories of Gundam Meisters (pilots) Setsuna F. Seiei, Lockon Stratos, Allelujah Haptism and Tiera Erde as they are thrown into conflict between the 3 superpowers and the other various factions.” – ANN

Kodomo no Jikan 2007
こどものじかん
Air Date: 2007-10-10, 2007-10-11, 2007-10-12
Episodes: ?
OP1: “Rettsu! Ohime-sama Dakko (れっつ!おひめさまだっこ)” by Eri Kitamura, Kei Shindou, and Mai Kadowaki
Preview: Youtube 1 (1:42min)
Summary: “Based on the seinen manga by Watashiya Kaworu, serialised in Comic High!. NOT related to the other Kodomo no Jikan by Goto Akira!” (AniDB)
“Kodomo no Jikan’s story revolves around a male twenty-three year old grade school teacher named Daisuke Aoki employed at Futatsubashi Elementary School (双ツ橋小学校, Futatsubashi Shōgakkō?). Daisuke is in charge of class 3-1, and one of his students, a mischievous young girl named Rin Kokonoe, has developed a crush on him, and has gone so far as to proclaim herself Daisuke’s girlfriend. Rin continues her efforts to be with her teacher despite the fact that he will lose his job if she gets too close.” (Wiki)
Notes: It’s not an anime list without loli school angst—
The anime is based on a manga by K Watashiya of the same name which translates to Nymphet. Recently went through some controversy due to an english publisher dropping the title because of problematic content back in May. The author Watashiya commented about the controversy on her blog, and the publisher, Jason DeAngelis, also expressed his thoughts on the matter. Seven Seas Entertainment: 1st letter (defending the title), 2nd letter (explaining the cancellation)

Kodoma no Jikan comic book #4 will come bundled with a 30min OVA prelude entitled “Yasu Mijikan Anata Ga Watashi Ni Kure Ta Mono”) but only with the special limited edition.

    Kimi Kiss is for boys, not girls.

  2. aya Says:

    oh…oh..great…wow i can’t wait for kyo kara maoh! R ..

  3. #Doanimation Team# Says:

    @sento: O RLY? Dudes may play the video game but the anime looks like another sappy Tokimeki or School Days.

  4. alyt Says:

    None of the series interest me… what is the anime world coming to?

  5. #Doanimation Team# Says:

    despaired alyt.

    Instead of Fall maybe Summer shows are for you, specifically Sayonara Sensei. ( ´∀`)σ)∀`)

  6. IrishHaremOtaku Says:

    well…….

    Da Capo 2? That’s surprising.
    Shana 2 I saw coming, but what about MoHS?

  7. #Doanimation Team# Says:

    The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya second season air date is still unconfirmed. The best guess is Spring ’08.

  8. reina Says:

    OMG these animes look great i cant wait to see them XD

  9. QC Says:

    Wait, isn’t Gambler Kaiji already made into an anime?
    Or is it a re-make or continuation?

    Also
    “left click>show image”
    Don’t you mean right click?

  10. #Doanimation Team# Says:

    Doh. :P
    Thanks for the heads up.

    Quote:

    Also
    “left click>show image”
    Don’t you mean right click?

  11. #Doanimation Team# Says:

    Do you mean Akagi? If I’m I’m not mistaken, Kaiji is a different story with the same theme. The word is the animation will cover the manga’s 1st story arc, Apocalypse.

  12. GiGi Says:

    Thank you. :)

  13. Ryou Says:

    Wow, they’re making an animation based on Bonoron? That’s pretty funny. Bonoron is a series of early childhood picture story books. My penpal sent me a stack to practice japanese with, they seem to be either sold or given out at 7-11’s.

  14. asdvhod Says:

    Hmm, seen some of those mentioned above:
    Clannad ep.1, pretty best… reminds me of ep.1 of Haruhi or maybe Kanon? But this one might do a 180, and do an Air ending urg… some of them other Anime – descent enough (seen the RAW).

    There’s less (or none) Higurashi or School Days themed Anime for TV, ne?
    NO MORE NICE BOAT

    I can understand Tokimeki as being sappy but School Days? if u saw the ending there is nothing sappy at all
