Excellent (9-10/10)

Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi

Kamisama-no-Inai-Nichiyōbi

Animation Production: Madhouse Studios

Manga: http://www.batoto.net/read/_/kamisama-no-inai-nichiyoubi-r1510/stubbornone-r345/1-r30254/English

Ignore the PV. They’re trying to make the series look like pedobait, but it’s really not like that at all (at least in the manga).

So skipping the PV, I’m gonna speak to the manga: this shit’s really fucked up. The characters don’t make sense, the plot doesn’t make sense, and the world doesn’t make sense. Think of it as a dark Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita (though slightly less good).

Jesus, I hope they don’t fuck the anime adaptation up.

 

 

Dangan Ronpa

dr

I’m talking about the game, not the anime. Fuck the anime.

Emulator: http://www.mediafire.com/download/4rpsvcfw7dnju6p/ppsspp+%28dangan+ronpa%29.rar  http://www.mediafire.com/download/538lg2v8xat8zkx/ppsspp_(dangan_ronpa).rar

Game torrent (ignore the included emulator): http://fuwanovel.org/application/assets/downloads/%5BFuwanovel%5D%20Dangan%20Ronpa.torrent

Go.

 

 

 

 

Good-ish (7-8/10)

Blood Lad

Animation Production: Brains Base (plzno)

Manga: http://www.batoto.net/read/_/5391/blood-lad_ch1_by_konnichiwa-scans

This is a very shounen series, except the MC isn’t a 13-year-old kid with the personality of a Downsie.

And this chick's smoking~

And this chick’s smoking~

Unfortunately, the series doesn’t really hit on any of the shounen highs I usually hope for when reading this kind of manga (see: the majority of HxH, Bleach’s Soul Society arc, and the entirety of Psyren). As implied earlier, the main character is pretty cool, but the supporting cast and behind-the-scenes schemes aren’t anything to get excited for. The manga starts hitting its stride right around volume 8, but it doesn’t seem like the author left much area for the story to grow, which is worrying.

It’s addicting, but only slightly moreso than mid-tier series like Ao no Exorcist. Shounen fans will enjoy the anime, but it’s not going to convert any new blood.

 

 

WataMote!

watamote

Animation Production: SILVER LINK

Manga: http://www.batoto.net/read/_/23133/its-not-my-fault-that-im-not-popular_v1_ch1_by_hansmaulwurf

It’s a dark comedy about a fujoshi failing at social situations. The manga was entertaining if only for the sheer novelty of having a female protagonist in the role. And by “if only” I really mean “only”.

 

 

Gatchaman Crowds

Animation Production: Tatsunoko Productions

gatchaman_crowds

The only information I have about this show is the above image.

Kinda reminds me of Noein. Sign me up.

 

 

 

 

Okay (5-6/10)

Inu to Hasami wa Tsukaiyou (Dog & Scissors)

inu_to_hasami_wa_tsukaiyou

Animation Production: Gonzo

Manga: Not scanlated.

Tsurupettan sadist? Yandere imouto? Mysteries? Aww yeah!

(I know this show won’t be good, but… Just let me have this.)

 

 

Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou (il sole penetra le illusioni; Day Break Illusion; The Sun Penetrates the Illusions)

Genei-wo-Kakeru-Taiyo

Animation Production: AIC

Grimdark loli fanservice. Well, it can’t be worse than Madoka at least.

 

 

Free!

free

Animation Production: KyoAni

Hardcore fujoshi fanservice, huh? All right, count me in. They practically named Adonis after me, so I’m gonna watch this to laugh at their pleb muscles and feel better about myself.

 

 

 

 

May the Cancer Kill Me First aka School Days-Tier (0-4/10)

Brothers Conflict

it's_not_gay_if_it's_in_a_three-way

Animation Production: Brains Base (ahahahahhaahhahaa)

Manga: http://www.batoto.net/read/_/167980/brothers-conflict_v1_ch1_by_whitelies-fansub

I think this is supposed to be another reverse harem shoujo, but all I got from reading the Spanish scanlation was the impression that it’s shounen-ai an intense desire for Taco Bell.

I give it dos tacos out of five.

 

 

Fantasista Doll

kill me now

Animation Production: Hoods Entertainment

I’m gonna have to put this show on mute when I watch it for my reviews. The voices are almost as unbearable as the character concepts.

And the plot? Little girls summoning little girls to have pillow fights? Leave the creepy pedo shit to Indonesia, please.

 

 

Choujigen Game Neptune the Animation

neptunia

Animation Production: David Production

Manga: http://www.batoto.net/read/_/102021/hyperdimension-game-neptune-megami-tsuushin_v1_ch1_by_evetaku (yes, that EveTaku; fansubs are taking over the scanlating world now)

If the show is anything like the games, it’s gonna be shit.

 

 

Genshiken Nidaime

shitty series

Animation Production: Production I.G

Manga: http://www.mangareader.net/964-58298-1/genshiken/chapter-57.html

Speaking with full honesty, I don’t see how anyone could like Genshiken. I despised the first season.

Actually, I do know why people like Genshiken: it makes them feel smart. So if you have low self-esteem and want to watch a show about people who are worse than you, go for it. Then despair because they’re not real and you’re still as bad as you were when you started the series.

Take the time you’d waste here and do something constructive like reading my posts.

 

 

Kiniro Mosaic

Animation Production: Studio Gokumi

Manga: http://www.batoto.net/read/_/36893/kiniro-mosaic_v1_ch1_by_kirei-cake/2

Kiniro Mosaic

With jokes like these, how can the anime NOT be good?

Yeah, prepare yourself for boredom.

 

 

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya

illya

Animation Production: SILVER LINK

Manga: http://www.batoto.net/comic/_/comics/fatekaleid-liner-prisma%E2%98%86illya-r2728

It’s a Fate/ animation that’s not Zero. Enjoy the terrible.

 

 

Kimi no Iru Machi

fuckfuckfuck

Animation Production: Garbonzo

Manga: http://www.batoto.net/read/_/46885/kimi-no-iru-machi_v1_ch1_by_red-hawk-scans/3

I gave the manga about ten pages before realizing it was just gonna be generic romance shit throughout. Guess I shouldn’t have expected much from the diptard behind Suzuka.

Call me when something interesting happens.

 

 

Gin no Saji

gin no saji

Animation Production: A-1 Pictures

A slice-of-life about farm life/hanging out with horses. Jesus Christ, this sounds more boring than train documentaries.

Man Japan, I hate you sometimes.

 

 

Uchouten Kazoku

slit my wrists

Animation Production: P.A. Works

“lol Japan is so quirky. if i like their quirky shows, that makes me quirky too. and if pplz don’t like these silly animes then theyre just idiots who dont’ know what their talking about.”

I think I’ve got the hivemind reactions down pat.

 

 

Stella Jogakuin Koutou-ka C3-bu

c3-bu

Animation Production: GAINAX (expect quality in all caps)

Manga: http://www.batoto.net/read/_/174794/tokurei-sochi-dantai-stella-jogakuin-koutouka-c%C2%B3-bu_v1_ch1_by_vistrans

I believe this is a prequel to C3. And given how shitty that series was, I don’t have much hope for this one. (No, I’m not sure what prompted the switch from terrible action-ecchi-harem to “girls playing with airsoft guns”, but I assume the connection will be made clear in this series.)

From what I’ve read of the manga, viewers will be subjected to Japanese “comedy” in a slice-of-life, high school setting. Please, contain your excitement.

 

 

Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist

fujo bait

Animation Production: Dogakobo

Manga: http://www.mangareader.net/1489-46977-1/makai-ouji-devils-and-realist/chapter-1.html

Pretty boys dressed in pretty clothes fawning over each other is about as far as this series goes.

It’s a more boring version of Black Butler with even more posturing.

 

 

Love Lab

fuckpillows_the_animation

Animation Production: Dogakobo

Manga: Not scanlated.

I think this is an anime about fuckpillows. You’d think that’d make it a high-quality show, but unfortunately the pillows aren’t hot.

Yes, these things are important.

 

 

Kitakubu Katsudou Kiroku

Kitakubu Katsudou Kiroku

Animation Production: Nomad

Manga: Not scanlated.

It’s a slice-of-life high school girl comedy.

 

 

Gifuu Doudou!! Kanetsugu to Keiji

Animation Production: Studio DERP

Manga: http://www.mangareader.net/gifuu-doudou-naoe-kanetsugu-maeda-keiji-sakegatari/1

kanetsugu_to_keiji

Well, the manga’s pretty awesome — it’s like Sengoku-era Fist of the North Star. Everything seems to be in order there, but let’s see how Studio DEEN handled the animation.

kanetsugu_to_keiji_anime-01

kanetsugu_to_keiji_anime-02

kanetsugu_to_keiji_anime-04

Goddammit.

 

 

Servant x Service

Rozen Maiden Reboot

fuck your shit I'm Kun Kun

Animation Production: Studio DESU

Manga: http://www.batoto.net/read/_/60462/rozen-maiden_v01_ch00_by_bnc-scanlations

Sounds like a top-tier anime to me. Must watch.

>Little girls summoning little girls to have pillow fights

I first didn’t plan to watch this show but, after such a description, I changed my mind. Thanks.

mahay says:

Silver Spoon look promising as the manga won an award and is very popular in Japan. I’m sure it’ll be one of the interesting ones.

I’m expecting Servant x Service to be enjoyable since it was made by the author of Working!!

The fact that there are no harem animes this season is very surprising, but I suppose pandering to the fujoshi is the new trend now.

kayserlein says:

High school DxD?

mahay says:

That’s a sequel. I meant new Manga/VN/LN adaptions.

CraN says:

why waste time and effort raising a new cow when you can still milk the old cow?

rarely_upset says:

shit_taste.gif

To each his own, I suppose.

kayserlein says:

Fuck every comedy that’s going to air. Your previews are the funniest each season.

El Huesudo II says:

I’m interested in Silver Spoon because… I dunno. It seems like Moyashimon but without the retardedness, and I trust the author.

Other than that, all I care about this season is Gatchaman Crowds. I might give Uchoten the 3 episode treatment only because I watched the trailer and I liked what I saw, somewhat. Everything else can go fuck itself.

I was also gonna comment on Dangan Ronpa, but…
“I’m talking about the game, not the anime. Fuck the anime.”
…you took the words right out of my mouth. After the disaster that was Devil Survivor 2, I pity whoever is expecting Dangan Ronpa to be good. It’s like they’re not paying attention at all.

Tempest13 says:

At first I was interested, then I realized I could just play the freakin game and most likely get a much better experience. It sucks that I have to take a risk with adaptations when those should be the safe bets. Free! for anime of the season it is.

wave says:

You forgot Teekyuu 2 for the excellent category.

Dark_Sage says:

That’s a given.

(I don’t include short series in the previews.)

habitat says:

I’m pretty sure c3 bu is not even slightly related to c3 (but I assume you were probably joking). Don’t hate on it just because gainax, it looks promising from the character sheets and the PV.

Slightly related because vivid is subbing this, is vivid a reliable group? I’m not sure what parts of gargantia they worked on, but that turned out pretty well.

BTc says:

Vivid is basically Commie with honorifics

Vagoo says:

I didn’t enjoy Rozen Maiden the first time, but I feel obliged to relive the misery.

Bros Conflict is coming out a week ahead of most of the shows, and the female protag has a lovely character design; so hardgay male harem it is.

Anonymous says:

Hey Sage, are there any other links to that media fire file? It stopped working.

Pelfmiester says:

This is looking to be a crappy anime season from what I can see. Blood Lad is the only one I feel confident about watching. I’ll probably check out ep 1 of Inu to Hasami at least. Nothing else stands out in a good way. Kami-sama isn’t looking interesting to me based on PV, ANN summary, and 8-year-old looking main female.

Dark_Sage says:

I just watched Inu to Hasami. Don’t do it. It’s even worse than I expected.

Just read the Kamisama manga. 20 minutes lost and if you don’t like it, you don’t like it. It’s not as good as my placement indicates, but I wasn’t gonna let the “Excellent” section go by without an actual nomination.

Vance says:

D_S, had you had placed everything in the “Shit” category, you’d eventually win big. This looks like a terrible season.

I didn’t watch Teekyuu the first time around, but I plan on marathoning it and watching the second season, partially because I want to see if CR actually gets the terminology right.

2CE says:

For Teekyu S1, herkz did good. Yes, I watched Commie’s. And I expect that herkz will beat it again. That said, you should consider their release.
