Fall 2014 Anime Chart v2


TV Series

Aikatsu! 3

Aikatsu! 3
Genre:
Music
Release Date: Oct 02, 2014
Animation Production: Sunrise

Summary: The third season of Aikatsu! In place of Ichigo Hoshimiya who was the protagonist in the first two seasons (she will still be in the story as a supporting character), the new season will feature her underclass girl Akari Ozora with her classmates.

Impression:

Sid Haven’t watched the first two and probably never will. Pass.
Hikaru I haven’t seen the previous seasons so that’s a pass.


Akatsuki no Yona

Akatsuki no Yona
Genre:
Action, Romance, Fantasy
Release Date: Oct 07, 2014
Animation Production: Studio Pierrot

Summary: Since Yona is the only princess of a grand kingdom, she has been raised with great care by her doting father and protected by her childhood friend/guard Hak and others. However, her fate changes on her 16th birthday, when her beloved cousin Soo-won murders her father to claim the throne. She flees the castle to Hak’s hometown and begins her new life.

Impression:

Sid It seems like it could be interesting. An action romance is long overdue to watch. Giving this one a shot.
Hikaru I always love stories of women who rise up to a challenge for honor and glory. This is a yes for me!


Amagi Brilliant Park

Amagi Brilliant Park
Genre:
Comedy, School, Romance
Release Date: Oct 03, 2014
Animation Production: Kyoto Animation
PV

Summary: The “slapstick drama” begins with Seiya Kanie, a high school boy who is invited on a date in an amusement park by a mysterious beautiful transfer student named Isuzu Sento. He is introduced to Ratifa, a “real” princess and the park’s manager, and is asked to be the acting manager of this “disappointing amusement park in the Tokyo suburbs.”

Impression:

Sid An anime like this seems quirky and fun; a real hit or miss type. I want to give a couple episodes to see how the comedy pans out.
Hikaru I love KyoAni but this story doesn’t seem that interesting to me yet. A pass for now.


Cross Ange Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo

Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo
Genre:
Mecha
Release Date: Oct 05, 2014
Animation Production: Sunrise
PV

Summary: Due to humanity obtaining the data technology that has evolved to a great amount- called “Mana”- the human race is able to subjugate all wars, starvation, pollution, and other problems on Earth by using its power, which is similar to magic. Earth has obtained the utopia of complete peace and no wants. First princess of the Misurugi Empire, Angelize. As with everyone else, she also had no wants or worries. She was celebrated by the people of the empire, and was supposed to wear the crown. However, she realizes the shocking truth that she is a Norma. “Norma”: An irregular existence that cannot use Mana, and are treated as heretics and as “things” rather than people. Having everything stolen from her, she isolates herself on a remote island. What was waiting for her there was a fateful meeting with a group of Norma girls who know nothing but battle. The girls spend their days riding humanoid robot weapons called “Barameiru” hunting giant dragons that have come from another dimension to invade. Having her name taken from her, what will soldier Ange see at the end of the fight? What can she believe in? What will she obtain? The story of a single girl’s fortitude starts now.

Impression:

Sid I like that it is a group of strong female leads, but the idea of ‘mana’ and ‘Normas’ just reminds me a lot of Break Blade. I guess the big difference is that this is a utopia instead of a land riddled with war. The PV looks neat, but the summary doesn’t seem like something that will hold my interest. I may give this one a shot, but already on the fence.
Hikaru Rarely do we see titles that singularly portray women as strong characters. Another yes!


Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai

Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai
Genre:
Romance
Release Date: Oct 09, 2014

He then meets a second-year girl named Tsugumi Shirasaki through the efforts of a so-called “shepherd” who fulfills people’s wishes. Eventually, more girls join the club thanks to the “shepherd.”

Impression:

Sid Sounds like a poor harem to be honest. I think I’ll give this one a pass for the season.
Hikaru I’ve grown tired of harem. Pass.


Danna ga Nani wo Itteru ka Wakaranai Ken

Danna ga Nani wo Itteru ka Wakaranai Ken

Genre:
Comedy
Release Date: Oct 02, 2014

The protagonist Umio works part-time at “BOOKS Umanohone” along with his senior at work (but not in age) Hiotan. As many dedicated manga fans visit the store, there is always something going on.

Impression:

Sid Always have to give comedy a try. Never hurts to laugh. Unless you’ve had an operation I guess. Still worth it.
Hikaru The first few seconds reminded me of Akihabara! But still, this is a pass. I’m not really into slice-of-life and comedy unless the story is really unique.

Donten ni Warau
Genre:
Action
Release Date: Oct 2014
Animation Production: Dogakobo

Summary: In the eleventh year of the Meiji era carrying swords was forbidden by the government and those known as samurai were slowly fading away.

Since the prison had no other way to access it except by water, the three boys of the Kumo family were assigned to transport the criminals to their new “home”. Although, is that the only thing they were doing…?

Impression:

Sid I can’t really get much from the summary and no preview, but I know that it’s gotten very high reviews on Manga Here. Doesn’t hurt to try out!
Hikaru Time for some action in the Meiji era! I love the character designs and definitely interested in the story.

The first television series in the franchise revolves around Makai Knight Kōga Saejima, who tries to save a girl named Kaoru from her fate of death after being tainted by demon blood.

Impression:

Sid I never saw the series and the story itself doesn’t really give me incentive to watch. I’m going to have to pass on this one unless I see Twitter blowing up about it.
Hikaru Pass for now.

Genre:
Romance
Release Date: Oct 13, 2014

Hikaru Not a fan of game-based anime so that’s a pass.

Impression:

Sid Another harem anime? One guy with a bunch of a girls stuck in a school? I’m giving this one a pass too, just not feeling the drama romance harems.
Hikaru Another harem, another pass.

Animation Production: Sunrise
PV

Summary: Some time has passed since the end of the Universal Century, a history marked by space colonization and space warfare. Humanity’s prosperity, which ushered in a new era known as Regild Century (R.C.), was believed to endure alongside the global peace. It is the year R.C.1014. The Capital Tower is an orbital elevator that rose above the Earth’s surface and linked Earth and space. As the conduit of the Photon Battery energy source to the surface, it is regarded as sacred. Beruri Zenamu is in the middle of training for the Capital Guard (established to protect the Capital Tower), when the tower is attacked by G-Serufu — a highly maneuverable mobile suit with technology that is not from any known country. Beruri, who joins the battle in the maintenance mobile suit Rekuten, successfully captures the G-Serufu. However, Beruri feels something for the space pirate girl named Aiida Reihanton who piloted the G-Serufu. It is the same feeling he has for G-Serufu, even though he supposedly never seen it before. The G-Serufu, which should only be operable under specific conditions, is somehow started up by Beruri. The objective of Aiida and the space pirates who attacked the Capital Tower, and the fate followed by Beruri who was chosen by G-Serufu, will lead to truths that will shake the entire Regild Century era.

Impression:

Inou-Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de

Inou-Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de
Genre:
Comedy, Fantasy, Romance, Supernatural
Release Date: Oct 07, 2014
Animation Production: Trigger
PV

Summary: The five members of the literature club awakened with extraordinary powers half a year ago. Although the members expected to be thrown into a world of super-powered battles at their school, their normal daily routine continued. No secret organizations bent on world destruction, no super-powered wars, no brave heroes or demon kings. However, the members still look forward to the possibilities of adventure, and continued to believe that with each day, they were getting ever closer to those days of fantasy. Their days of romantic comedy and battles with extraordinary powers begin!

Impression:

Sid This actually sounds like it could be pretty funny. What kind of world would it be if you had super powers but no actual use for them? I have to say though I’m more intrigued by the comedy instead of the romance.  Keeping this one on watch.


Kaitou Joker

Kaitou Joker
Genre:
Mystery
Release Date: Oct 06, 2014
Animation Production: Shin-Ei Animation

Summary: In the story, there is nothing in the world that the mysterious phantom thief Joker cannot steal. He goes after one treasure after another in unpredictable capers with seemingly miraculous tricks.

Kiseijuu

Kiseijuu
Genre:
Action, Drama, Horror, Sci-Fi, Psychological
Release Date: Oct 09, 2014
Animation Production: Madhouse

Summary: They arrive in silence and darkness. They descend from the skies. They have a hunger for human flesh. They are everywhere. They are parasites, alien creatures who must invade–and take control of–a human host to survive. And once they have infected their victims, they can assume any deadly form they choose: monsters with giant teeth, winged demons, creatures with blades for hands. But most have chosen to conceal their lethal purpose behind ordinary human faces. So no one knows their secret–except an ordinary high school student. Shin is battling for control of his own body against an alien parasite, but can he find a way to warn humanity of the horrors to come?

Impression:

Sid I was against the idea at first until I read “conceal their lethal purpose” because that gave it an interesting twist. Plus any horror anime should be given a shout out. I’m going to be keeping this one on watch.


Log Horizon 2nd Series

Log Horizon 2nd Series
Genre:
Action, Adventure, Fantasy
Release Date: Oct 04, 2014
Animation Production: Satelight

Summary: Second season of Log Horizon

An earl in the service of the country of Brune, a young archer by the name of Tigre, experienced the Vandis’s power firsthand after being defeated on the battlefield by Ellen. However, Ellen chose to spare his life after witnessing his skills, but in exchange, he is asked to serve her.

Impression:

Sid I wasn’t very taken in by the PV, but war anime tend to have a couple select scenes that are worth watching. I’m on the fence for now, so let’s see how many I pick up before checking this one out.


Magic Kaito 1412

Magic Kaito 1412
Genre:
Adventure
Release Date: Oct 04, 2014
Animation Production: A-1 Pictures

Summary:

Kaito Kuroba, a normal teenage student whose father is often absent. When his father dies under mysterious circumstances, he is made aware of his father’s secret identity; a famous international criminal known as International Criminal 1412: the Phantom Thief, and that he was murdered by a mysterious organization for refusing to aid them in retrieving the “Pandora Gem”; a mystical stone said to shed a “tear” during the passing of a particular comet (often called the ‘Volley Comet’), the consumption of which bestows immortality. He vows to prevent the organization from gaining immortality, and assumes his father’s identity as he begins his quest for the gem. His only clues as to the gem’s location are that it glows red under the full moon and that it is a doublet: a gem hidden within a larger gem. Thus, it would have to be a relatively large one with a bizarre history, and always stored in a place that never receives moonlight. He thus researches and steals famous priceless gems with odd histories from incredibly well-defended areas, and always returns them after the very next full moon.

Impression:

Sid I’m a fan of Lupin III and I know this isn’t like that, but criminal shows are fun. Maybe it will give me a little nostalgia kick.

Unfortunately, Sata may look like a sweet person, but he is actually an ultra-black-hearted sadist. Sata takes advantage of Erika’s weakness and treats her like his dog.

Impression:

Sid Eh this seems like it could give me a couple chuckles. I don’t see it being a side splitter though. If I can at least get a couple laughs in at the beginning I’ll keep watching.

Summary: Tatsumi is a high school boy who lives by himself. One day, a devastatingly handsome merman named Wakasa moves into the bathtub in Tatsumi’s home. Wakasa is a bit self-centered but cute, while Tatsumi is cool but a busybody.

Impression:

Psycho-Pass 2

Psycho-Pass 2
Genre:
Action, Sci-Fi
Release Date:
Animation Production: Production I.G.

Summary: Second season of Psycho-Pass

Impression:

Sid Finally! If you haven’t picked up Psycho Pass yet I suggest doing that ASAP. One of the top action sci-fi series of recent years. Such a cliff hanger ending to the first season too.

Even two years later, Kosei hasn’t touched the piano and views the world in monotone, and without any flair or color. He was content at living out his life with his good friends Tsubaki and Watari until, one day, a girl changed everything. Miyazono Kaori is a pretty, free spirited violinist whose playing style reflects her personality. Kaori helps Kosei return to the music world and show that it should be free and mold breaking unlike the structured and rigid style Kosei was used to.

Impression:

Sid I’m actually curious about this one because of the heavy role of music. I’m not a big fan of drama romances, and I’m hoping that it doesn’t follow the same tropes of girl likes guy, guy likes other new girl, second guy likes first girl, only two people end up happy. I’ll give this a go and see how it turns out.

Now, humanity will send elite warriors to exterminate the mutated bugs and claim back Mars

Impression:

Sid I’ve actually read a bit of the manga. It wasn’t too bad but I’m afraid that the anime is going to be saturated with censorship. I’ll give it a couple episodes and hopefully it’s not just a black screen for 30 minutes.

Impression:

Sid I wasn’t going to start this one up from the first promotional video, then the second one had me intrigued, and finally the third one made me worried. It seems like it could be decent if it’s not bogged down by ecchi moments. Let’s give it a couple episodes to see what path it’s going to go down.

Impression:

Sid The summary is very common, but the preview gave it a little bit of an edge with cool 3D effects on what I assume is the manga. I was kind of hoping that the main characters weren’t in school, but what did I expect? I’ll give it a few episodes to see how the combat and character development is. I’m really not banking on the story being anything extravagant or gripping.
