With the new year comes a new anime season and like most seasons it’s hard to tell what will be worth watching without actually watching the first episode so here is my list of things that sound interesting and why I intend to start watching them, whether i finish watching them or not will remain to be seen.
So first off we need to actually know what coming so big thanks to AniChart.net for providing such an awesome list. Remember that every one has different tastes and that not every one likes the same things. And with that onto the list
At the top of the list is D-Frag!
So right off the bat i detect lots of spastic energy emanating from this series and the synopsis seems to confirm this:
Kazama Kenji likes to believe he is something of a delinquent. Moreover, others seem to like to agree that he is. Of course, Kenji’s gang finds their way to a group of four not-so-normal girls—Chitose, Sakura, Minami and Roka—and all at once, whatever reputation he may have is nothing compared to the outrageous behavior of the girls. Shanghaied into joining their club, what will happen to his everyday life from that point on?
Crazy antics in a school setting with a good variety of characters? sounds like my kind of thing!
Let’s see here, the main girl reminds me of Shana, the character design reminds me of Fate Stay Night, there’s magic/action/fantasy and no mushy feelings to get in the way of the action (at least not in the description). Oh, and she also has a gun that glows with magic so technomagic seems like a high probability. Sounds interesting enough to give it a try, only thing left to see is the rest of the characters because from that image one is obviously evil and another is obviously jealous so were still missing our support cast.
I usually don’t watch obviously romantic stuff but the art style seems interesting and trying to find this image revealed that there seems to be plenty of comedy in it so I’m adding it to my list for now and we’ll see what happens once it actually starts.
There are plenty of anime’s that have done the whole “warlords of feudal japan represented/reborn as cute girls”, most notably Koihime Musou, but none that i remember has also thrown in mech style transformations and what appear to be demonic tentacles…welp i’m sold on this, looks like it might be this seasons Gurren Lagan.
This is exactly the type of anime i love to watch. Silly antics of a school counsel at a school that until last year was a girls only school and the council president has no sense of tact when it comes to things of a sexual context and the guy she dragged she dragged into the council for his male input. That just about sums up the first season now lets see what happens.
I’m a big fan of Lupin III, it was one of those 80’s anime that were good enough to warrant a spanish dub and broadcast over here. This is actually the second movie they do and the first one fulfilled my Lupin III crave completely by giving me everything from the original series.
Robot Girls Z
A mini series whose premise is that a group of girls dressed as toei’s 80’s robot heroes promote and defend “photon power” from the “evil Mechanical Beasts” girl team, although sometimes they just do it to vent their stress. What more can i say about this series without actually seeing it.
And that is my list all that’s left to do with relax through to the end of the year and wait for the season to start.
