Vantage: It’s apparently quite popular, but I’ve never tried this.

Oki: It’s a beautiful adorable moe show! No freakin thanks.

MidnightDevont: Oh look, a fourth season of a show that I have never seen. Also, the picture, it burns me with the moe!

Berry: Aikatsu looks cute but man I’m behind.

Hideki: Is this thing still going?

Nikolita: Holy pink and sparkly. Also, I don’t usually have an interest in shows of which I haven’t watched the previous season(s).

Trailer: PV 1 | PV 2 | PV 3

Team Impression

Eva: ….The story sounds awfully familiar to something I watched in the past, but hey I am curious enough to see where it will go!

Vantage: An interesting premise, this looks cool! I don’t feel like the PV told me any more than I already knew from the synopsis, but it featured a flying loli. That’s a good thing, right?

Oki: Looks like I could give it a shot, and it has mecha. Loli for Vantage, Mecha for me! Then again Gundam. . .and loli.

MidnightDevont: Not exactly sure how to feel about this, from the PV the animation looks absolutely beautiful at the very least. Mecha isn’t usually my genre though. So i’m pretty sure there are people on this blog that will want this show more then I do.

Berry: Typical guy finds mysterious girl, adventure ensues type of anime. And I don’t like mecha but the premise sounds nice and the PV was cool, though it was more like a music video. The girl is cute too.

Hideki: I’ve seen this show already..like 15 times.

Nikolita: Reminds me of Origin: Spirits of the Past. I’m not big on mecha, but I’d be interesting in doing a First Impression anyways.

Charibo:  -BIG GIANT ROBOT- not for me .

Concrete Revolutio Choujin GensouConcrete Revolutio: Choujin Gensou

Animation Company: Bones
Website: http://concreterevolutio.com/en/
Genre: Action, Adventure
Airing Date: October 6th, 2015
Summary: The stage is set in “another Japan” as a banquet of diverse superhumans unfolds…In an imaginary “age of gods” about 20 years after the war, Japan has grown and developed by leaps and bounds. What if all the superhumans ever written about in fictional stories existed at the same time? Superhumans who came into existence through different circumstances, and who are special in different ways — Titans from outer space, lifeforms from a mystical world, phantoms and goblins from ancient times, cyborgs created by scientists, relics that rose out of the ruins of ancient civilizations, and the list goes on. One segment of these superhumans makes no secret of their existence and has gained popularity in society. Others cloak their identities and fight in secrecy. There are enemies of superhumans as well, organizations that operate in the shadows. The Japanese government has taken many measures to secure peace and order. One is the establishment of an organization under the Ministry of Health and Welfare — the Overpopulation Research Laboratory, a.k.a. the Superhuman Bureau. Their mission is to identify and approach suerhumans, then oversee and safeguard them. One member of the Superhuman Bureau, Jiro Hitoyoshi, is protagonist of this series.
Trailer: PV 1 | PV 2

Team Impression

Eva: This looks like it is going to be real complicated, but I like complicated stories so I will take a look! Also damn the colors, gorgeous! I can see BONES signatures stamped all over this. Considering I wasn’t a huge fan of their previous original series, here’s to hoping this one (as colorful as it may be) will be more appealing.

Vantage: An original series, huh? It looks like it’s created a reaaaaally complicated setting for itself, so hopefully it doesn’t end up as a complete mess.

Oki: This looks freaking amazing and also I hate it but I love it.

MidnightDevont: You know, this looks like it has the potential to be a lot of fun. I mean, the PV had a magical girl fighting against a Mecha. Something about that is so special that it makes me happy on multiple levels. I’ll take a look at this one for sure.

Berry: This sounds so crazy but fun. The synopsis is so complicated so I’d have to watch an episode to actually understand the show. But a bunch of superhumans of all types? Nice.

Hideki: I saw the PV. not interested.

Nikolita: Sounds like it’s going to be really chaotic, which means I’d have trouble keeping track of all the names and details. Pass.

Charibo: Why does this show sounds so complicated ? I like the Art style though .

Trailer: PV 1 | PV 2

Team Impression

Eva:  I want this to be good, I really do, but I am not holding my breath for it. I will watch it though.

Vantage: I’d be more interested in this if it didn’t look like it fell straight out of an otome game.

Oki: I love otome games as we all know but I have never enjoyed an adaptation.

MidnightDevont: Something about this show and the way it’s animated reminds me of another show in this season….one that I am not looking forward too in the slightest. oh look, it’s the one RIGHT below this….

Berry: If it’s a shoujo there’s a 75% chance that I’m going to watch it. Like Midnight I’m also worried it might be another Diabolik Lovers I really hope it won’t be. I’ll think about covering this.

Hideki: See…reverse harems have never been my thing. I’ll just go ahead and pass on this one for people who like the penises.

Nikolita: On the other hand, as long as it’s tasteful, I’m all about reverse harems. It looks pretty, so what the hell –  I’m game.

Charibo:  Another Reverse Harem . Still introducing the main blond boy, the red head one , the one with the crazy hair-curt ( such a cute plait, please teach me how to do it ), the pervert one  and the one who look like a crazy psychopath. I might look a bit masochist on this one but I want to try it. Also, I may have a crush for the ginger head one ( rindo/リンド  ). Don’t judge me .

Team Impression

Eva: OH HELL NO.

Vantage: Ibid.

Oki: I like my dignity where it is thank you

MidnightDevont: -internalized screaming, runs off, comes back with 16 bottles of holy water, silver stakes, many matches, a truck of garlic.- I HATE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS SERIES, IT OFFENDS ME ON BASE LEVELS. WHY THE HELL IS GOT LICENSED FOR A SECOND SEASON I CAN’T EVEN IMAGINE. IS THE CONTENT OF THIS SEASON EVEN CANON TO THE GAME ANYMORE? Wait, actually, that might be good….since the anime based off the game was missing so much detail it was painful. One part of me is drawn to this second season out of a sick sense of curiosity, the other half wants to vomit at the thought of it….I’ll give it ONE episode….that was enough of the first season to tell me i hated it….

Berry: I watched one episode, and I almost felt myself vomit. The abuse and rape tones are disgusting and make me absolutely sick, and the fact that this has gotten another season just…frightens me. And it also frightens me that there are fangirls horny over this and it’s sickening. It’s trash, absolute abusive trash.

Hideki: What did I just say about reverse harem shows?

Nikolita: The social worker in me is thinking that if everyone else is having this kind of emotional reaction to the show, I’d end up putting my fist through my computer screen if I tried to watch it.

Charibo: While watching the first season I literally spit blood. For a long time I was in pain now I laugh about it .YES MORE BLOOD ! YES ANOTHER BUNCH OF HOT LOOKING SHITTY TEENAGE VAMPIRES WHO ARE ENJOYING  ABUSING A 13 YEARS OLD LOOKING GIRL ! Our new vampire cast looks exactly the same as the last one : Tsundere boy, crazy-shit-eyes-kun, stylish blond hair guy,and the read head smiling psycopath. Not sure I can handle two reverse harem with some autoproclaimed demons shows in a row.

Trailer: PV 1 | PV 2

Team Impression

Eva: I have seen a lot of hype around this series, so I know it definitely has something going for it. Regardless of it being an ecchi harem, (which is typically not my cup of tea) I will give this show a shot.

Vantage: As a light novel reader, I’m really enjoying this series. Yes, it’s an ecchi fantasy harem cardboard cut-out, but with A-1’s surprisingly high production values and a two-cour run confirmed, this adaptation will get through enough of the plot to make it worth watching. I’d be more than happy to blog this.

Oki: I was interested until the harem part!

MidnightDevont: I think i can pass on this safely, I think Vantage has it covered sooo…..AWAY!

Berry: Harem? Ecchi? Count me the hell out.

Hideki: Oh boy. Another show about a super special guy who all the girls want and he’ll end up with the first girl he meets #23432.

Nikolita: I’m all for ecchi, but this reminds me too much of Gundam for some reason.

Charibo:  That’s a really big sword  Ayato-kun . Are you compensating for something ?

Unlike the first Garo anime, this series will be a jidaigeki (period drama) set in the Heian period. It will have a female protagonist.
Trailer: PV 1 | PV 2

Team Impression

Eva: I feel like this is more of something I would enjoy marathon in the future than watch while airing.

Vantage: So is this far removed enough from the first anime for newcomers to pick up? If people end up saying it’s good I might try this.

Oki: Looks light it might be good but I’m not sure, never really saw Garo and don’t know how different this is going to be.

MidnightDevont: I didn’t watch the first season, is it going to have any relation at all? I don’t know, I mean, I heard a lot of good things about the first season. I don’t think i’ll be checking it out, but i’ll be listening to other peoples views.

Berry: Even though Honoo no Kokuin had some problems, I still really enjoyed Garo. I thought the second season would be a continuation of Leon’s adventure, but it’s completely different! Even though it’ll be different characters, the same voice cast is coming back so that should be fun. I’m looking forward to this.

Hideki: I didn’t care enough about Garo to watch it in the first place. So….no?

Nikolita: Cue my blank stare.

Charibo:  Never saw Garo, but if it’s a really different show, why not ?

Eva: This show is adorable- and I’m saying that based off watching only one episode. I need to finish the first season first though.

Vantage: A miracle of the universe. I can sing its praises for hours. Each episode is guaranteed diabeetus and everyone is best girl. Also distinguishable from the first season because the title now has two question marks instead of one. My body is ready.

Oki: TOO MOE

MidnightDevont: Well I know absolutely nothing about this show past vaugely recognizing the name. So That counts me out!

Berry: ………………………no.

Hideki: Didn’t see season 1. Automatically kills any interest for me when i’m a season behind like this.

Oki: Nah man it be sports.

MidnightDevont: I know a lot of people who cosplay from this….but my actual knowledge of the series and interest to get into it are about 0. So i’ll pass.

Berry: Haikyuu!! was a fun watch. Not as dramatic as Kuroko no Basket or other sports anime, but still enjoyable. You know, I’m gonna go ahead and cover this. Covering it during the matches might be tough but I’m going to try it out anyway.

Hideki: What did I JUST SAY about the ‘missing a season’ thing?

Nikolita: I have little to no interest in virutally all sports anime.

Eva: It’s to safe to say I will not be watching this series, period. I have covered the first season, but I honestly have no interest in the sequel. It has been long forgotten.

Vantage: I remember watching Hidan no Aria many moons ago, although it’s been so long that I don’t even have an opinion on it any more. I remember Kugimiya Rie, though.

Oki: This PV makes it look waaay more interesting than it probably will be!

MidnightDevont: I don’t know anything about the original, it looks cool and if Kugimiya Rie is in it, we’re in for some serious tsundere. However, I think I’ll pass on this one.

Oki: I read High School Musical and where is the lie?

MidnightDevont: The summery doesn’t do much for me, however the pv does. Seeing the animation and the characters and the [gay undertones]. I think I’ll be checking this one out, yo know…for the comedy.

Berry: I’m only going to watch this for the purple-haired badass on the motorcycle. He’s probably gonna be the mean one who’s totally not mean and that is my weakness.

Hideki: The amount of NOT CARING and strong not wanting to do this is amazing.

Nikolita: That poster is cute but it’s not enough to sway me into being interested about this show.

Charibo:  So, It’s like Utau no prince Sama but without the crazy-eyes-useless girl ? It can be watchable then. Wait … Are they making  a star with their fingers ? The Cherry Blossom Flower Association ? I’m starting to like this . Also, Hot looking boyz in uniform, can’t argue with that.

Vantage: I remember co-blogging this with Eva a few years back. Never thought it’d get a sequel! I’d be down for continuing if she’s up with it as well?

Oki: I need so much more context than I have.

MidnightDevont: As much as I’ve meant to watch the first season and trust me, I have. I just keep not having the time. So since I’ve missed the first season, not much point in me watching the second one.

Berry: Okay so question. Do I have to watch the movie before watching this? Because there are dead characters that are alive and I’m so confused?????? Also, I was never too invested in this show (only for the main trio).

Hideki: Can’t say I ever wanted to watch anorexic boys fighting other anorexic boys that have the personality of a wet newspaper.

Nikolita: Interesting premise, but pass.

Charibo:  I haven’t finished the first season . Too many new characters but, oh well, if I manage to finish the first season maybe I’ll try this out .

Ore ga Ojou-sama Gakkou ni "Shomin Sample" Toshite Gets♥Sareta KenOre ga Ojou-sama Gakkou ni “Shomin Sample” Toshite Gets♥Sareta Ken

Animation Company: Silver Link
Website: http://syominsample-anime.jp/
Genre: Comedy, Ecchi, Romance, Harem, School
Airing Date: October 2015
Summary: In a hidden school surrounded by mountains, young ladies of good families are taught everything a high class lady needs to know. They are also completely cut off from the outside world, keeping them sheltered and innocent; however, a problem has come up recently—more and more graduates are failing to cope with the modern world after graduation. To deal with this problem, they’ve decided to kidnap a male commoner student, and enroll him as a student. They hope that this will be a gentle way to introduce the girls to the outside world.

Kagurazaka Kimito is chosen for this dubious honor, mostly because he seems utterly average; however, the school leaders also seem to have concluded he’s a homosexual with a muscle fetish. When Kimito hears that the alternative may be castration (to protect the girls’ purity), he eagerly plays along with this misconception. Now he’ll just have to survive the attention of many high class young ladies that are completely out of touch with the world!
Trailer: PV 1 | PV 2

Team Impression

Eva: Bloody hell, is that a NOPE I hear? All I can see is a whole lot of stupid. Definitely not my type.

Vantage: A ‘gentle’ way, huh? Why do I get the feeling that this will involve lots of misunderstandings and innocently lewd jokes? Also, the character designs in the PV reminded me of Prisma Illya. I guess the same key animators are working on this project too.

Oki: I can hear the trembling written word of Edward Allen Poe at the sorrow he knows I’d be feeling from this show.

MidnightDevont: Alright, let me begin with everything that is wrong with this. First off, if you want the girls to begin getting ready for the outside world sooner. Why not instead, begin by hiring some male teachers to begin teaching them about it? Second off, instead of kidnapping one poor guy and passing him off as homosexual. You begin by letting a small group of male students integrate into the school. Third off, I am SO sick of the ‘one guy in an all girls school’ trope that I could DIE. STOP IT, IT’S NOT INTERESTING ANYMORE. I could think of 100 ways to make this same concept but make it LESS generic and stupid. I’m getting wordy though, so I’ll settle with this NO, I WILL NOT COVER THIS GARBAGE.

Berry: This sounds horribly stupid.

Hideki: There are no words to describe how stupid and generic this sounds. Like…I think my head would hurt after every episode I watched of this, and I would lose even more brain cells than I did watching Vanadis. Okay…well maybe not AS many..but it would be close.

Nikolita: I’m kinda interested, but it smacks so much of Green Green that my gut instinct is to say hell no.

Charibo:  God , I see embarrassing situations and a lot of boobies coming. At least they try to make the presence of a single among a lot a hot chicks logical. BUT AN HOMOSEXUAL WITH A MUSCLE FETISH ? The school leaders must be on drugs on something or maybe it’s the authors of this THING that are consuming too much meth. I dunno

Vantage: I’m sure this is a momentous thing for fans of the original series. If only I’d been around in Japan in the 1980s.

Oki: No idea what this is about! I love so many old Japanese cartoons but not sure how I’d feel about this.

Vantage: I haven’t read the novels for this, so all I can say is that it looks really generic. At least the main male lead isn’t Matsuoka Yoshitsugu, right?

Oki: Looks like an RPG cover.

MidnightDevont: bland, generic, just the kind of thing that I should nope my way away from. NOPE.

Berry: This is generic as fuck. Guy sucks at using magic, popular strong girl fights him, he loses, later he ends up OP as fuck, popular strong girl suddenly sucks at fighting, guy saves the day, romance. The end. There, now you don’t even need to watch this.

Hideki: NO! NO MORE GENERIC HAREM SHOWS! I… I can’t deal with this anymore. I can’t watch any more shows with a generic piece of crap male who we know in episode 1 who he’s going to pick. I…I just can’t.

Team Impression

Eva: Keep the horror away from me.

Vantage: Like Aku no Hana!

Oki: Looks so good but so creepy!

MidnightDevont: I think this could be a really cool show. I’m sort of sad that it’s just a short. Horror shorts just don’t end up nearly as good as comedy ones. [-cough- Pupa -cough-]. I’ll do a first impression and see what I think of it at the very least.

Berry: A HORROR <333333 Oooh I’m sure the rotoscoping will make it even more scarier! Though I’d love to cover this, the length of the short will be a problem for me as I most likely won’t have much to talk about. Also I am worried for another horror short. I feel like a horror should have full-lengthed episodes or else they might end up like…..Pupa. *shudders*

Hideki: ewwww. rotoscope? I never liked rotoscope.

Nikolita: I’ll be the first one to say that I can’t stand horror movies or shows. BUT. I’m really interested to see what the rotoscoping will look like. I will give it a try.

Charibo:  I will try to watch this but since I’m a pussy I think will be too scared to cover it.

Berry: This looks like a cuter mystery, so why not?

Hideki: If i wanted to watch a show about kids solving mysteries I’d stick with “Detective Academy Q” thank you very much.

Nikolita: Anyone else getting a Digimon vibe from this?

Charibo:  They kinda look like the PCP gang from Bakuman. I want to try it.

Overall Thoughts

 

Eva: I am back in for the FALL ANIME 2015 SEASON! HURRAY! This season consists many sequels, and a lot of moe- which can be a hit or miss for me. But in all honesty, the only stand out for me this season are all the MECHA series- which is a good thing since I LOVE mecha- but on the otherhand, this season is flat as hell. As I am still covering two on-going titles, I am not quite sure how many titles I will pick up this season. It will ultimately depends on my health and real life schedule (which has been growing more hetic as of the late), so right now I am considering picking up two or three more titles (preferably 2/3 shared). I know for certain I will be covering Noragami Aragoto, and I am definitely interested in Comet Lucifer, Heavy Object, Kidou Senshi Gundam: Tekketsu no Orphans, Taimadou Gakuen 35 Shiken Shoutai. Considering Oki has signed up for many of them as well, sharing might be an option for us. I also harbor interest in Concrete Revolutio: Choujin Gensou and Gakusen Toshi Asterisk, but I have doubts about picking them up to cover. However, if one of them turns out good and no one else picks it up, then there will be a greater possiblity of me doing so since I hate turning a blind eye to a potiential hidden gem!

Vantage: I’m liking the look of this season. Lots of cute stuff, which is nice. I definitely want to blog Gakusen Toshi Asterisk and Taimadou Gakuen – the last time one of these sorts of harem shows ascended into popularity, it was Infinite Stratos, and I think at least one of those two can pull it off if not both. Other than that, I’d go for Gochiusa S2, Lance N’ Masques and Owarimonogatari next if I have time. I probably will, as nothing from this season will be carrying over except Tokyo Ghoul :re as always and maybe God Eater for the first few weeks. As for stuff I’m interested in, One-Punch Man, Noragami Aragoto and Sakurako-san top the list, and a couple of the mechs shows do too. I thought Summer 2015 was going to be boring, but it turned out pretty great in the end – hopefully this means Fall 2015 will be even better!

Oki: Okay so here are my thoughts in a legitimate way: so many anime of this season seem like decoys. Their themes and ideas seem really cool! There are even some shows that seem deep other than their harem ideas. The honest truth is that I love anime and I don’t want to review shows that come off to me as tropes. I want to watch anime and enjoy them for what they genuinely are, not the tropes that help make them what they are. This season if a moe show defies my expectation or you think it is good, feel free to recommend it to me. My only desire this season is to cover anime that are surprising and good. I’m hopeful this season can give that, and let me also hope for a good Gundam. . .

MidnightDevont: This season is pretty dry, like bone dry or death valley dry. There are a few things I’m sort of hype for, like Young Black Jack and Sakurako there are a few things that I’m checking out because their PV’s were good enough to grab my attention. I got lucky in the Summer season and got the honor of covering or co-covering some of the best shows I’ve seen since joining the blog. Then there is trash in this season like Diabolik Lovers 2…well anyway. If there is a show that is good that you guys recommend to us, I might go check it out. I just want to cover things that are good and pertain to my interests. I’ll even consider things outside my usual genre if they’re good enough.

Berry: ONE PUNCH MAN. NORAGAMI. AND HAIKYUU!! THAT’S IT. THAT’S ALL YOU NEED TO WATCH. Okay but really, this season is kinda….ehhh? There’s a lot of the generic shit as usual, then the moe stuff, then mecha I don’t care about, and a lot of sequels! So that eliminates a lot of shows already. I’m happy to see a lot of mystery shows, so those immediately caught my eye. Of course I’ll also keep my eyes peeled for people’s first impressions to see which shows are worth checking out, because right now I’m just a little unsure about a lot of them. Either way, the season will start while I’m in school so it might be better to take it easy this season. Also, ONE PUNCH MAN. NORAGAMI. AND HAIKYUU!! Ok.

Hideki: Honestly, this season is pretty full of utter crap. This is like the previous Winter season. There’s really nothing I’m excited for. The only good thing about this season is that both Gate and Ushio and Tora are carrying over this season so I at least have some familiar faces to hang onto. Granted I’ll be able to watch more World Trigger but as you guys know, I’ll only be happy if that means more Konami. I’m really doing that cutie show just for the lols and albeit i’ve never been the biggest AOT fan, who knows, maybe the chibi one will be cute. (Shrugs) In general though, WAYYY too many generic harem shows as well as reverse harem shows and all in all, just generic pieces of crap or continuing seasons of shows I never cared about in the first place. Ah well. Here’s hoping some of the random shows I’ll review will be halfway decent. Yay for mediocre seasons!

Nikolita: Lots of second seasons and continuations. I think I’m most excited for Dance With Devils because I’m a sucker for reverse harems, but I hope I will enjoy the other two so I can cover them as well. I’d also like to second Oki’s thoughts on many of these shows seeming like they don’t amount to much more than cliches or tropes. So many of these shows have been done already, and like Oki I don’t want to review something that I think it going to be really shallow or stereotyped. So fingers crossed that the shows I’ve picked will surprise me, and maybe, hopefully a couple of the shows I’m hoping for will be announced next quarter….!

Charibo:  Humm… I’m not really sure what to think about the upcoming shows for this season. There are a lot of sequels of series that I didn’t watch in the first place which means too many episodes to catch up with. Too many  mecha shows and harems with a guy with random powers who can get all the ladies because I don’t know… he’s the main protagonist and he’s got a crazy hair cut ? But I will watch Haikyuu !!, Subete ga F ni Naru: The Perfect Insider, Noragami and One Punch Man for sure. Also, High School Star Musical seems fun to me, I like musical Animes and sweet looking fellows . Maybe I will try out some reverse Harems like Devil Survivors or *cough* Diabolik Lovers 2*cough*, but only if I can get a morphine prescription from my doctor.

    Anything moe and/or slice of life I will watch (I am SO here for the bunny show: if you people haven’t watched the first season of Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu Ka you do not know what sort of warm peaceful fluffy friendly happiness you are missing!)

    I would watch the Monogatari thing, except I’ve never even finished Bakemonogatari, and from the sound of it I’m better off that way, because lots of innocent girls end up going through some sh… bad stuff for no good reason.

    Shinami Maou… oh right, that was the one I gave up on a few episodes in because I decided to wait and watch the uncensored version, and then I never had the motivation to actually track down such a version. I’m not sure it’s worth my time.

    Valkyrie drive gets attention just for flashiness and yuri. I’m contractually obligated to at least give it a look.

    How many “generic school setting but with a slight twist” series are there this season? (I include “magical high school” series in that.) I swear the things are an infestation. Really, I think someone, somewhere, created a “light novel writing made easy” form set in high school where you just fill in the blanks with character names and a few bits of details here and there, and hundreds of so-called authors are using it as their template. Some of them actually do turn into something decent, but there are just SO MANY of them that are just SO SIMILAR that we just get sick of seeing them altogether. Or at least I do.

      Shinmai Maou isn’t worth going out of your way to watch – only about two of the characters are interesting, the rest are fairly bland. I did it just because it was there – it was a good warm-up before blogging Kancolle every Wednesday.

    Pretty much just Gundam, Seraph, and Heavy Object for me so far, which is weird, because all three are pretty much guaranteed to be popcorn shows.

    Also, I miss those halcyon days when yuri shows were subtle and classy, and not booby lolis as far as the eye can see. Not that I didn’t enjoy Kiniro Mosaic, but come on, Japan, can’t you adapt Citrus or Girlfriends or SOMETHING that isn’t just for the dudes?

    Since I hang around here pretty often i guess i will write here as well
    I dont mind a bit harem as long as its not the overkill thingy were all the plot gets replaced for more fanservice, unless intended and focused on it

    Comet Lucifer: loli, mecha, nice artstyle.. definitely going to check it out (and I love loli so sure why not)

    Concrete revolutio: looks confusing and i am not too much a fan of that artstyle but if they can manage it and the flashy randomness wont kill me i will take a look

    Gakusen Toshi Asterisk: took a look at the manga and i kind of enjoyed it and with A-1.. one of the shows i am looking forward seeing

    Garo: first season was enjoyable even with some problems so taking a peek wont hurt.. i guess.. hope?

    Usagi: cuteness overlord, garantee for diabetis.. and since my shows are often overlapping what vantage likes, i maybe should start with season1

    Heavy Object: heard good things and am smelling some hype around this so i will at least watch the first few episodes even though i am not too much of a mecha fan

    Hidan no Aria AA: dont really understand why making a random spin-off when there is still plot left.. but well nevermind.. first few ep wont hurt

    K: for the completeness after watching the movie.. though the pv does not say or show what this one really is about so i dont know if its necessary to watch the movie or not, but seeing its about jungle, i conclude yes its would be wise to watch the movie

    Lance: battle,action,novel,moe, i can take it and some more (wow i should not write everything down whats on my mind just because it rhymes)

    Noragami: 100% watch for bishamon arc

    one punch man: after watching the first episode and all the hype with madhouse as well, yup why not, looks like fun

    Owari: as a mangareader mysefl i definitely have to watch it

    Owarimonogatari: love the monogatari series and since i already watched every part, i think its a must for me

    rakudai: going to watch it, since i know he wont just gather girls for the sake of harem but gets a girlfriend really quick (sorry for spoiling?)

    sakurako: nice artstyle and like mystery so yeah

    shinmai: oh gosh i feel a bit ashamed and embarassed but i enjoyed it

    the perfect insider: because its a mystery so i must check it out at least

    taimadou: because it looks ok and because vantage is vouching for it

    valkyrie drive: that escalated quickly with all the yuri overkill and the bdsm and the middle of the pv, so i might take a look to let my brain go and take a break (nice joke midnight)

    overall it looks like a pretty nice season with a shitload of shows worth to take a look at. CometLucifer, GTA, Noragami, OwariNoSeraph, Owarimonogatari and rakudai the show i am looking forward seeing the most. And like always i hope there is going to be less of the “lets drop some plot for more fanservice, because people like fanservice”
    feeling so sorry for writing so much (-_-‘)

    I’m happy that you guys are going strong, but I think you should give Rakudai Kishi a chance. No it’s not a harem; it’s a romance series, which is done very well in the LN, with actual progression instead of a MC with the density of a neutron star. Give it a shot.

    • September 9, 2015 at 09:25
      Permalink

      That’s exactly why I started off my bit with ‘I haven’t read the novels, so…’ because my reaction to both Asterisk War and Taimadou Gakuen would have been exactly the same (‘lol ecchi harem’) had I not been familiar with the source material. I’ll give Rakudai Kishi a few episodes at least (although sometimes the adaptation screws things up, and it loses a whole lot of new viewers).

    I feel like every season looks lackluster at first glance, but hopefully it’ll rise to the occasion. I think the summer season was actually rather weak, so it would be nice if fall’s season is more enjoyable. I’m REALLY excited for Haikyuu!! 2 though; I never thought a sports anime would make it into my top 5, but Haikyuu!! did. It’s realistic and hilarious, and the ALL characters are lovable. :)) Like you all said, Owari no Seraph season 1 was a disappointment, but I’m still hoping for something good from season 2, hopefully something unique to distinguish it from every other “kill them all” series. The rest of this season is unfamiliar to me, but I’m trying out all the reverse harems/bishounen anime (even though I’ll probably drop them all as well) and all the slice of life/comedy shows.

    Thanks to Arslan Senki, I feel like I need one action series every season. I really want to watch Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen, but I don’t know if the alternate setting prequel is necessary. Hopefully it’s not!

      I couldn’t agree more Haikyuu is definitely one of my favorite shows of all time.+:。(ノ・ω・)ノ゙. All the characters have to deal with their own problems (special mention to Sugawara) reinforced by the fact that they are a team and therefore they need to work together putting their differences and problems aside. And of course, it’s a Comedy Gold Anime . I’ve watched other generic sports anime but I couldn’t find the same vibe that made me love Haikyuu !!! Not really sure why…「(゚ペ)

    First I like your reviews and visit quite frequently and post occasionaly !

    One thing I have learned that anime PV’s and synopsis are sometimes so far off it’s a joke!

    I remember everybody was down on School Live before it even aired and turned out quite popular and one of the miost talked about shows of summer!

    I watched 48 shows for summer / yes I should have dropped a few but it makes my good anime more of a joy to watch !

    I am going to watch a lot of the sequels because I did watch a lot originally !

    BTW I do a Greenlit forum and do a lot of research and yet I will still have to watch most of them to get a feel !

    I do admit Summer 2015 is one of my all time favorites and doubt Fall would be close at all !

    One final thought the season is a lot closer than you think and yet the tired old game of waiting to see where the shows will be ! ( This is one of biiggest complaint about anime ! )

      Oh yeah definitely PV’s and synopsis can be off. I know I was one of the people that turned down Gakkou Gurashi when we did the preview but I regret it because my curiosity got the better of me and I actually started watching it last night and I’m hooked. I’m almost caught up with the new episode right now! And haha it makes me sad. :)

      That’s why now I’ll usually just check out the first episode of something I wasn’t interested in just to see if it’ll change my mind.

      ;) This is why tuning in for the first episode is always worth a while!

    Okay, to be honest I’ve didn’t watch too much anime continuously other than PreCure. But hey one could still give some impression, right. Okay, let’s see:

    – Gochiusa – Same as Kiniro Mosaic, except with maid instead of foreigner. Let’s see it later. Actually first anime that I watched every week after Go Princess Precure. I mean Kiniro Mosaic(Kinmosa).

    – Aikatsu 4 – I’ve read that back in Precure LJ there was an info that Toei will take care of the animation. My impression that the dance is already improved compared to season one, which frankly 3D Dance is very ugly back then. And looks like our new focus will be 2 new idols instead of Akari, Sumire, and Hinaki. By the way I’ve watched some episode of Season 3 and almost no plot going on, only SoL and dancing and singing. Compared to another same kind of anime Pripara, Aikatsu is less quirky, because Pripara tend to add catchphrase and quirk to all of main idol.

    – Kamisama Minarai – Looks like Bandai attempted to make new toy franchise. But hey, nothing wrong with diversification in industry, right. The important thing should be story anyway.

    – Ore ga Ojousama – I’ve had some comments. First, the girl in the middle looks like Honoka from Love Live. Second, will we had headmistress of the school as the antagonist(Princess Evangile VN refrence by the way, with same plot)? Third, why they must kidnapped homosexual with muscle fetish anyway(I’d recommended Masato from Little Busters if you asked me. But he maybe not the best candidate as his look is very intimidating).

    Sorry for Evangile comparison, but in Evangile there was an interesting twist that if the boy is fail to impress the girls, he must be kicked out. You see there was 2 factions in Evangile debating if the school should be integrated or not. Leader of one faction decided to scout a man by herself, and she find protagonist who his condition remind me of Hayate from Hayate no Gotoku. Back to topic, I think the school should not pass the boy as homo if they want to adapt to modern world. I mean first step of normal world should be interaction between man and woman, right? If they so desperately need to pass a boy as homo, then I would like to ask just how much isolated the girl in the school anyway? Is one of their graduate a culprit of murdering a man just because he about to say hello to her?

    – Kindaichi – No Kindaichi and Akechi are not yaoi. Although you may ship them if you interested though lol. Anyway, usually for anime it will have 3-4 episode for one cases, and hell surely will be busy for accepting at least 2 people from one cases, because Kindaichi usually involving asshole victim and serial murder. And the mystery involving tight alibi and closed room. Why I know? Because I’ve read almost all of Kindaichi manga online. It may hard to find mangascan in English though. Just think it like Conan if you confused though(Although you my already know it anyway).

    – Osomatsu-san – I though I saw 4 Nobita alike and thinking it must be Fujiko F. Fujio work, until I saw the writer is not them, but Fujio Akatsuka. Guess he was inspired by Fujio work.(Or maybe at 1960-1970 they use almost same art style, I didn’t know) And by the way RIP for all of these author, since Both Fujio already leave us. Akatsuka is die at 2008, while Fujiko at 1996.

    – Rakudai+Shimai Maou+Taimadou Gakuen – Why we must have a boy with hidden power tossed to a group of girls with super power(or military), may I asked? I know from LN it may be good, but please, I prefer the girls working together instead throw a man too. My reaction it may be good later though, but the preview text may throw off the people who interested in these anime like me though. I’m a man by the way in case you think that I criticize the show like this because I’m a woman.

    – Shingeki! Kyojin Chuugakkou – Attack on Titan AU High School. That’s all. Although usually another anime use high school one instead of junior though for AU settings.

    – Utawarerumono 2 – Started from VN of Utawarerumono 1. To think it become like this. I read that they will make VN based on this anime. But please don’t make it for PS3/Any console system like Tears to Tiara 2 again(Or maybe my plea is already useless). Because to be honest people will always throw an old console everytime a new console arrived and people nowadays most likely using PC to do anything anyway. And let’s face it, will you buy a console to play your favorite game and you know how to connect it to PC? My answer is no. Sorry for my rambling. The story is actually quite good, and even if the protagonist is thrown into harem situation, at least the girls more mild compared to the usual harem situation like Rakudai above.

    – Yuru Yuri San☆Hai! – Will see it later. Like Kinmosa and Gochiusa from the preview though.

    – Valkyrie Drive – Is these woman nutrition in that anime going to the breast? Looks like we might have yuri fanservice action mecha anime here though. I mean every anime must have some fan to certain genre, right? Well, let’s see it later too.

    – Young Black Jack – I remember watching the show back at 2007 when my age is at 17. Black Jack is one of interesting doctor. If you really determined to be cured by him, you better prepare for deep pocket, because Black Jack always charge very high fee to see the patients determined to be operated or not. The cheapest could be around 30 million yen iirc. And one more thing, he may be most skilled surgeon in the world, but medical association decided that he is illegal doctor(probable because politic in medical world thing, since Black Jack at the time accept the operation for the one who the hospital refuse iirc). It will probably had patient of the week pattern though, judging from what I watched 8 years ago.

    I think that’s all from me. Sorry for a wall of text.

    Ugh, really meh season.

    Only really interested in One Punch Man! The Manga was funny because it had such good drawings, the Animations seems to be good enoug also to convey the comedy.

    Moeshows I am absolutly uninterested, and it seemed to be alot of them.

    Harems… I liked them at one point when they were new for me. But now… I can’t see them anymore. And they always ruin the good other genres like Fantasy or Romance )=
    Oh, that sounds interesting…. wait, Harem, nevermind.
    Well, I will look into them, I enjoyed Seiken Tsukai no World Break as a gultiy pleasure. The music was really speaking to me.
    I guess actually I am sorta OK if they keep the Harem light and the Maincharakter is no Pussy. If he is aware, but doesn’t care thats kinda fine for me.
    Well, I am also watching the thing with the Skywizards right now… but that feels like a Parody. (And I like the Music, I never skip the opening or ending). +I like the mainchar :D He knows whats going on, but doesn’t care and is just a chiller.
    Oh well, I guess I still kinda like Harems… NO! I only like the Music and the other themes of the Story. Would be so much better without Harem, but what can you do.

    Hm whatelse….

    The mechas look like my only options, even though I am not really into the Mecha genre. It just often has nice storys besides the Mechas, and the Mechas I can accept.

    *cough* some of the other shows maybe if I find uncensored Versions…. *cough*

    Rakudai Kishi no Eiyuutan is awesome. I have read all the novels/manga. Completely subverts most of the typical harlem tropes, with a transgender girl, badass powers, extremely likeable characters, and pretty decent comedy. Also the summary really doesn’t explain the show. The only con I have is that, despite all it’s self aware humor, it gets really generic and boring with the introduction of another girl. What I’m trying to say here is that you guys better give this one a chance, if the mc’s/best girls antics don’t get you laughing in ep 1 then drop it because the rest of the adaption is going to be crap. Also to summerise the show, blade dance and ( I forgot the name of the anime with the souls becoming weapons) had a baby with the self awareity of Binan. Don’t make the same mistake you did with Yuuki Yuna guys.
