This anime season (Fall 2009)

This season seems a little lackluster to me. It seems like I was following more shows last season. The only ones I am watching in earnest are "Kimi ni Todoke," "Aoi Bungaku," "Seitokai no Ichizon," "Cross Game," and "Thriller Restaurant." "Winter Sonata" seems stalled with the subbing.
"Kimi ni Todoke" is fantastic every episode, beautiful to watch, makes me smile.
"Aoi Bungaku" is the "mature" anime that delves into suicide, adultery, and murder, and is also beautifully animated.
"Seitokai no Ichizon" is makes me LOL at least once every episode.
"Cross Game" on the surface is about sports, but it's more about the characters and their relationships.
"Thriller Restaurant" is a cute Disney-Haunted-Mansion thrills type anime and I really like the end credits where you see the maitre d'/ghost narrator dancing.
On Crunchyroll I watch "Letter Bee" and "White Album." I think there are 21 simulcasts on Crunchyroll, but none of them seem really interesting besides those two. "Hanasekeru Seishonen" is one I am slowly catching up on. "Miracle Train" is something I watch whenever I have nothing else to watch.
Maybe it's because Crunchyroll has so much current season streaming that I'm realizing how many shows I am really passing up each season. Wonder how next season will be...
