Spring 2015 Anime Preview, Part 3: Because I said I would

Yes, most of these are out now, but just for this thread, let’s pretend they aren’t.


Mikagura Gakuen Kumikyoku (Mikagura School Suite)


Animation Production: Doga Kobo

Airing: 4/7

Manga: http://bato.to/read/_/218703/mikagura-gakuen-kumikyoku_v1_ch1_by_mikagura-scans

Light Novel: N/A

Me in girl form. Obviously this anime is going to be worth watching.
My kind of girl. Obviously this anime is going to be worth watching.

Still, although the manga is pretty fucking great, I’m bitter about the Vocaloid anime budget being spent on this rather than the real project we all deserve.

Pizza Hutsune Miku

Next season, Japan. Do it for justice.



Hibike! Euphonium (Sound! Euphonium)

Hibike Smilephonium

Animation Production: Kyoto Animation

Airing: 4/8

Manga: N/A

Light Novel: N/A


K-On but slow? Ehh, mochifool me once…



Triage X


Animation Production: Xebec

Airing: 4/9

Manga: N/A

Light Novel: N/A


I really liked High School of the Dead, but Xebec is kinda the worst.

Let’s be real, I’m going to jerk off to this like I’m trying to set a record (and I will), but I won’t recognize it as the achievement it should be.



Ore Monogatari!! (My Love Story!!)


Animation Production: MADHOUSE

Airing: 4/9

Manga: http://bato.to/read/_/140153/ore-monogatari_v1_ch1.1_by_kidu-scans/5

Light Novel: N/A

It’s a love story, but the guy’s ugly and fat. Sorry, but how do they expect me to use my tears as lubricant for this? Ain’t even gonna give the show a shot; prematurely dropped like a pill-induced abortion.



Houkago no Pleiades (Wish Upon the Pleiades)


Animation Production: GAINAX

Airing: 4/10

Manga: N/A

Light Novel: N/A


Yeah, I know this is likely just gonna be another soulless, unnecessary tie-in product (dat Subaru money), but what I thought was going to be the most shallow cash grab last year (Shingeki no Bahamut) ended up being one of the most legitimately entertaining series. With the sheer amount of emotion jam-packed into that PV, I desperately want to look past my doubts. So I will.

If you can fool me with that PV, Gainax, I’m gonna trust you to fool me for the rest of the show. You should try blatantly copying Trigger more often.





Animation Production: Encourage Films, Shirogumi Inc.

Airing: 4/9

Manga: N/A

Light Novel: N/A

I like catgirls as much as any male with a working libido, but… goddamn why can’t Japan make these shows good? Ecchi can have value (see the oft-overlooked Sekirei), but making it soft ecchi with a slice-of-life plot? No, I’m not interested.



Punch Line

Punch Line

Animation Production: MAPPA

Airing: 4/10

Manga: N/A

Light Novel: N/A


This is what the “FLCL so deep” crowd is looking for. As such, I wish it would never air, just to keep those insufferable nitwits down. And while I don’t keep track of VAs, goddamn did they drop the ball on this casting. It’s like I’m listening to a shitty Thai fandub. Hype levels at minimum.



Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo


Animation Production: LIDEN FILMS

Airing: 4/12

Manga: N/A

Light Novel: N/A

God, that PV is just everything I watch anime for. I wish I was being ironic here, but keep in mind I liked Witch Craft Works. Please, Japan, more of this and less slice-of-moe bullshit.




Shows I’m hype for:

  • Gunslinger Stratos
  • Mikagura Gakuen Kumikyoku
  • Houkago no Pleiades
  • Shokugeki no Souma
  • Show By Rock!!
  • Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo

Shows I’m not:

  • Arslan Senki
  • Denpa Kyoushi
  • Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru no Darou ka?
  • Etotama
  • Hibike! Euphonium
  • Kekkai Sensen
  • Kyoukai no Rinne
  • Ore Monogatari!!
  • Owari no Seraph
  • Plastic Memories
  • Punch Line
  • Triage X

Watch me be right on all of these, like usual.

  1. turns out I really liked punchline; and I often agree with your taste, unless you’re watching BL stuff. Did you give it a try? >_>

  2. ” Ain’t even gonna give the show a shot”
