This one’s for the fellas. Ladies, you can watch.
Animation Production: Seven Arcs (Dog Days, Asura Cryin’, White Album)
Manga: http://bato.to/read/_/133153/dog-days_v1_by_cxc-scans (The anime isn’t based on this manga, but if you wanna read a 1-volume adaptation, here it is)
Sink’s (real name, no lies) been transported to a dimension populated with nubile, oversexed animal girls. He finds himself in the midst of a giant pillow fight between two rival factions, and must decide which girl will provide him the honor of sitting on his face — a tough decision for a middle schooler!
This season will focus on that guy from Utwarerumono, Mew Mew Strawberry, and the chick you thought about getting a figure of but then decided not to because “eh”.
If you haven’t seen the other ones, feel free to start here; you won’t be missing anything. (But don’t actually do that, cuz this series sucks.)
Animation Production: 8 Bit (Busou Shinki, Rail Wars!, Walkure Romanze)
If this script would go the exact same way were you to be the main character, either Japan’s gotten really good at reading minds, or you need to get a more unique personality.
Juuou Mujin no Fafner (Infinite Fafner)
Animation Production: Diomedea (Astarotte no Omocha, Gingitsune, Squid Girl)
Manga: http://raw.senmanga.com/Juuou-Mujin-no-Fafnir/01/1/ (raws only)
The world’s strongest assassin, Yuu, just wants to be left alone. But when a bunch of girls with dragon powers appear, he finds himself forced into a government school where all the girls are gathered to fight each other! When he sees a dragon girl bathing naked, she has no choice but to become his wife… and his sister turns out to be one of them too! Who will save all these silly girls from themselves?! Well, Yuu, obviously.
Will Yuu make it through high school life unscathed? Probably not, but I can promise that post-high school life is better. Well, not much better, but better enough.
Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata (Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend)
Animation Production: A-1 Pictures (Valkyria Chronicles, Persona 4 the Golden Animation, Galilei Donna)
Protag-kun wants to make his own anime game. The only problem is that he has no talents of his own. So he’s come up with a master plan:
If this sounds familiar, put down that pirated copy of RPG Maker VX Ace and put this on your watch list. Based on how enjoyable the manga was, you may just get something useful out of it.
Seiken Tsukai no World Break
Animation Production: Diomedea (Campione!, Polyphonica Crimson S, Akuma no Riddle)
Manga: http://bato.to/read/_/256339/seiken-tsukai-no-world-break_ch1_by_extras/2 (I got through all of ten pages. Can you last longer?)
The main character was a badass hero in a past life — wielder of the Holy Sword and the strongest swordsman alive. But in his current life he’s just an ordinary student! Well, an ordinary student in an academy for people with super powers! But still, he doesn’t take school too seriously — and he even dyes his hair — cuz man, he’s just the coolest. Also, all the ladies love him and want to be his sister or — record scratch — his lover! Or… both?! Ooh la la!
In this installment of “we didn’t know the radiation would have this effect”: Seiken Tsukai no World Break. Let’s World Break!
Shinmai Maou no Testament (The Testament of Sister New Devil)
Animation Production: Production IMS (Date a Live II, Inari Kon Kon, that shitty Twintail show that you’ve already forgotten about)
Brown-hair McNoPersonality has found himself in such an awful situation! His dad has remarried and now Brown-hair has to deal with constant sexual advances from his new sisters. Like you, he’s a virgin by choice, but all these cute girls are going to make it tough for him to stay chaste! So unlucky!
Oh, and he’s even unluckier because it turns out his step-sisters are demons… which is going to make it tough for him as the strongest member of the “Hero Clan” to stay out of the millenia-long struggle between heroes and demons! Can’t he just retire in peace?
Well, until this all blows over, guess he’s just gonna have to save the world. Sometimes it’s hard being the generic protagonist.
Animation Production: ARMS (Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero, Sekai de Ichiban, Wizard Barristers)
The main character is just your ordinary high school/middle school boy, with one small twist — he has magical powers he never knew about!
You Shinichiro discovers this after unintentionally finding himself the helper of a girl who’s secretly in love with him — and she’s also a magician! Wow, convenient! He helps her out with the chores and cooking because — get this — she can’t do those things even though she’s a girl! Isn’t that crazy? Also every girl he meets falls in love with him because, man, he’s just such a nice guy!
How many girls can you get by being beta? Watch to find out.
Tokyo Ghoul Root A
Animation Production: Pierrot (The Last: Naruto the Movie, Creamy Mami)
Kaneki Ken is just your ordinary bookworm… until one day when he meets a cute girl and finds himself with magical powers. Now he’s trapped in a struggle between two different worlds, but he can relate to both when nobody else can! What a special fucking snowflake!
In Root A, he’s been awakened to his true strength after he was pushed to the brink of death. But will it be enough to save the now-helpless Rukia?
With this season, Japan’s shown more contempt for its audience than even fansubbers are capable of. Sometimes I wish I had enough self-control to not watch this shit.
