Fall 2014 Preview: Part 1, Maybe Winter Will be Better

This post was written by Dark_Sage. He is Dark_Sage.


This “preview” will contain shows that have aired already. I’m working almost diligently on the next part of the previews (which’ll be more of the standard you’re used to).

Covered in this post:

  • Tribe Cool Crew
  • Terra Formars
  • Gundam Reconguista in G
  • Denki-gai no Honya-san
  • Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken (I Can’t Understand What My Husband is Saying)
  • Karen Senki





Tribe Cool Crew

Tribe Cool Crew

Animation Production: Sunrise (Aikatsu! season 1, Aikatsu! season 2, Aikatsu! season 3, Aikatsu! movie)

Manga: N/A

This is a serious site for serious adults, so I refuse to feature any kid’s shows.

1st episode: Didn’t watch it/10.




Terra Formars

Terra Formars

Animation Production: Liden Films (Miss Monochrome, Senyuu, Wooser’s Modern Life)

Manga: http://bato.to/read/_/124866/terra-formars_by_utopia/2

If you already saw the first episode and thought the show was pretty stupid…

And I can see why you would.
~No clue where you’d get that impression.~

…I can assure you that this shit tree’s roots go even deeper.

Because you missed out on what these enemies looked like.
Because you missed out on all of this retardage. Yeah, that black thing is the main enemy in the series.

See, the main plot of the story is a bunch of humans get injected with bug DNA to fight giant cockroach people on Mars. And the cockroach people are humanity’s ancestors or something.

Fuck Terra Formars
Oh my god, plot spoilers~

Combine that mess with the anime’s poor pacing and I can safely say that if you’re still interested, you’re probably on a watch list somewhere.

1st episode: 4/10.




Gundam Reconguista in G

Reconguista Title

Animation Production: Sunrise (Valvrave, Steamboy, Sgt. Frog)

Manga: N/A

Reconguista would be considered low budget even by 1960s standards.

Gundam Reconguista in G - Budget
The intro averaged five frames per second.

But combine that with pacing and character interactions that make even Muslims look progressive, and you have something that feels out of place in this universal century.

Yes, the girls are the only ones that get beaten in this show.
And yes, you inferred correctly, these girls are on this ship *solely* to cheer on the space cadets, who are exclusively male, cuz that’s just how the future is.

There’s a reason people hate anime, and other than the pedo magnets, garbage like this is why. Fuck Reconguista.

1st episode: 3/10.




Denki-gai no Honya-san

Bad Anime

Animation Production: Shin-Ei Animation (Crayon Shin-chan, Doraemon, Tonari no Seki-kun)

Manga: http://bato.to/read/_/151727/denki-gai-no-honya-san_v1_ch1_by_display-none/4

I gave the episode 6 minutes before I had to shut it off. Denki-gai has nothing going for it. Nothing.

I can't tell whether she's a shark girl or just inbred.
I can’t tell whether she’s a shark girl or just inbred.

The designs aren’t cute, the character interactions aren’t entertaining, and the setup makes me wish the abortion clinic had finished the job it started on the writer. There is nothing to redeem this show or justify your time investment in it.

Avoid it like anime fans.

1st episode: 0/10.




Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai (I Can’t Understand What My Husband Is Saying)

Danna ga Whatever

Animation Production: Seven (Beyblade Metal Fusion, Ai Mai Mi, Recorder to Randsell)

Manga: http://bato.to/read/_/248685/danna-ga-nani-o-itte-iru-ka-wakaranai-ken_ch1_by_gnit

One of the things I hate most about 4koma adaptations is that they take the four-panel setup and drag the jokes on for minutes, when they’re intended to be consumed in seconds. So anyone whose time has more value than a youtube “personality”‘s life would be far better served by just reading the manga.

You may like Nozaki-kun if you're dumber than the average chair.
You may like Nozaki-kun if you’re dumber than the average chair.

But by firing off the jokes at a machine-gun pace, Danna Husbando dispenses with treating its audience like they’d even be rejected from an Ikea.

This would be a three-minute exchange in most adaptations.
…which is great, considering this would be a three-minute exchange in most adaptations.

Now, despite my hype here, it’s not a good show, but it’s… okay. Certainly not awful, which is about the best you can hope for this season.

1st episode: Watchable/10.




Karen Senki

k senk

Animation Production: Next Media Animation (N/A)

Manga: N/A

Karen Senki is what RWBY would be if Monty Oum was actually Japanese.

Boiling water. Because.
Boiling water. Because *this* cheap CG series ain’t aimed at the middle school crowd.

And even better? There’s a guy who fucks robots.

Karen Senki - Junkshop FTW
Screw Reconguista; this is progress, baby!

I dunno, it’s only 10 minutes long. Watch it if you’re even slightly intrigued in a RWBY that doesn’t suck. I’m sure you’ve spent far longer refreshing Crymore in the hopes of new posts this week.

1st episode: Decently Watchable/10.





  • Tribe Cool Crew : sucks.
  • Terra Formars : sucks.
  • Gundam Reconguista in G : sucks.
  • Denki-gai no Honya-san : sucks.
  • Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken (I Can’t Understand What My Husband is Saying) : only sorta sucks.
  • Karen Senki: doesn’t sucks.

  1. >Certainly not awful, which is about the best you can hope for this season.
    Step it up, D_S. This season is going to be God tier: Fate Stay remake and Psycho Pass 2 alone make this season better than the last 4 or so seasons.

      • That anime doesn’t count, it was shit because DEEN fucked up. Hopefully ufotable will do a better job.

        Then again, if you are the type who likes series like SAO, maybe it doesn’t suit your taste. Give it a try regardless.

  2. Honestly, if anything, UBW will save the season, I enjoyed a lot of shows these past seasons but most of them were pretty bad and nothing really stood out.

  3. Log Horizon 2, Psycho Pass 2, Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works. These 3 series are gonna be great and will be this season’s best, of course.
