Impression:

Sid The PV didn’t really tell me much and the summary is rather vague. However, it is a comedy so I’ll at least give it a couple episodes before making my decision.

However, it is Arslan's destiny to be a ruler, and despite the trials that face him, he must now embark on a journey to reclaim his fallen kingdom.

Impression:

Sid Another historical anime, but this one might be interesting. I’m not sure I’m a fan of the age group but if Arslan turns out to be kickass it might not be an issue. I’ll give this one a pickup to see how it turns out.

Unable to watch Kagami throw away his life, his sister Suzune gets him to work at the Ichou Academy she attends. The head of the school's board, Koyomi Hiiragi, assigns Kagami to his new life as a teacher.

Impression:

Sid This one might turn out to be interesting, though it looks just like a harem to me. I’m pretty sure the term “romance” is loosely given. Who knows it might be pretty funny, though the summary suggests something a little worrisome.

Impression:

Sid This could actually turn out to be pretty good, though the story sounds rather simplistic. I noticed a tiny of fan service during the trailer, but nothing too out there. I’m more than happy to give this one a few episodes.

Impression:

Impression:

Sid This actually sounds pretty dang cool. I’m not sure how the disease has anything to do with the multiple universes but I’m excited to find out. Giving this one a pick up for the season.

She remembers an incident she had with Reina at a brass band club contest in junior high school...

Impression:

Sid Judging by the fact they are in bass club and the PV I’m looking forward to some jazzy sounds. I’m also a bit curious as to what type of slice of life this will be. I’ll give a few episodes to start and hopefully continue till the end.

Now someone is threatening to sever the bubble, and a group of stylish superhumans is working to keep it from happening.

Impression:

Then one day her always-absent classmate Rinne Rokudo shows up, and he's far more than what he seems!

Impression:

Sid I didn’t get much from the PV since it doesn’t have any English subtitles, but the summary was enough to make my decision. I think I’ll be watching a couple episodes, but I don’t’ see myself keeping it going till the end.

As the shy head of the Literature Club, Nagato has had a hard time recruiting members. Her close friend Ryoko Asakura supports her in this. Drafting Kyon, she eventually meets up with Haruhi Suzumiya, Tsuruya, Mikuru Asahina and Itsuki Koizumi, and has to put up with their hijinks while trying to romance Kyon. Asakura seems ambivalent about the latter prospect.

Impression:

Sid I’ll probably end up watching this one since I quite liked the Haruhi series/novels. A spin off might not be bad.

Surrounding him are a host of highly idiosyncratic characters: the diehard masochist Kei, the unnaturally strong yet girlish Totono, the exceedingly stylish working stiff Saitou, and the extraordinarily negative Roku. Even the one normal guy has his own issues.

Impression:

Sid It’s hard to base a comedy off a summary so I’ll just have to jump in and start watching. Let’s see if this can give a me a few laughs.

Animation Production: Wit Studio
PV

Summary: The story takes place in a world where an unknown virus has killed the entire human population except for children. Those children were then enslaved by vampires. The manga centers on Yuichiro Hyakuya, a human who dreams of becoming strong enough to kill all vampires.

Impression:

Sid A rather dark summary and exciting action sequence in the PV. Though I can’t say the vampire bite was that scary. This one sounds like it could be one of the better suited for me this season.

Animation Production: Dogakobo
PV

Summary: This story takes place in a future not too far away when androids that look exactly like humans begin to spread across the world.

For this reason, SA Corp. creates a terminal service in order to retrieve Giftia that have gone past their service life. A new employee at the terminal service named Tsukasa Mizugaki forms a team with the Giftia Isla to retrieve the other androids, but...

Impression:

Sid Although the story doesn’t seem all that new I’m actually a sucker for AI-like themed anime. I’m probably going to keep this on watch till the very end unless the first couple episodes are absolutely terrible.

Comedy, Ecchi, Slice of Life
Release Date: April 10, 2015
Animation Production: MAPPA
PV

Summary: The series follows Yuuta Iritatsu, whose spirit has been separated from his body.

Impression:

Sid “Whoa the music is intense, the art is pretty, the story sounds interesting… and there’s the panty shot”. I’m not sure whether this anime will be able to keep my interest between all the pointless ecchi but I’ll give a couple episodes. Hopefully they keep it relatively mild so they pool away from what seems to be like other really great characteristics.

Impression:

Sid A much more series food anime? And one that’s… ecchi? Wait so he’s such a great cook women lose their clothes? Well let’s give it a shot and see how it goes.

Under the leadership of the hospital chairman, a handful of staff members and local teenagers form a group of mercenary assassins, targeting the "cancers" of society and excising those individuals before their wickedness spreads.

Impression:

Sid I hate to drop an action series but after the “well-endowed” comment I’m probably going to have to. The PV didn’t give much and I’m pretty sure I wont enjoy it as I did Samurai Girls since it doesn’t seem to be anything new.

Impression:

Sid I’ll give this a shot. Though I’m not sure how a Vampire Holmes will work out.

The fall season is filled with some pretty interesting, and not so interesting anime. I have to say that I haven’t been very excited to watch any of the new shows with a couple exceptions. Most of my focus will probably be on second season shows this time around. Hopefully you all are keeping up with this season and can let me know what YOU think about the series so far! Per usually this is my on watch, dropped, and worth picking up anime!
