Yeah, yeah. I know this sudden spike of posting is making you dizzy, but it’s more so for me.
If you’d known me or followed my blog, you probably know there is a fortnight’s gap between posts and I rarely make anything else other than reviews. Truth is, it isn’t really because I’m lazy or busy, it’s just that I have absolutely nothing to write about. Guess that’s what they call a writer’s blog, ha!
Ha ha, get it? Writer’s block? Blog?
Smog? Fog? Dog? Morgue?
Anyway, just in case you haven’t gotten into the shows scheduled next month or so, here is an obligatory list of things you absolutely don’t need to know about the next season.
Yay, another season of Aikatsu! 4! Wait, what’s that again? Oh, yeah, it’s a show about…
Sigh, I’d swear that Japan’s obsession with 2-D idols are overboard, we already have so many of them! Love Live franchise, The IdolM@ster franchise, plus a whole lot more of obscure franchises about more idols. Speaking of more idols…
Miss Monochrome Season 3
See what I told you?
That aside, we also have tonnes of sequels…Oh, and vampires.
Diabolik Lovers More, Blood
Oh, good grace. Please, no more…I beg you…
Judging from the trailer and stuff, there seems to be a good deal of…
Absolutely nothing, except for some moe loli goddess jumping around with a wide variety of bright colours splattered distastefully on the background.
Oh, well…Here’s to hoping for another Hestia reincarnation.
Concrete Revolutio: Chounjin Gensou
In some messed up futuristic Japan, there exists superhumans with powers that came into existence through many ways. “With great power, comes great responsibility”, even if your power is turning into a freaking cloud.
Well, the style of the show is somewhat like Kyousou Giga, or Kekkai Sensen on drugs, but whether or not they’ll be as entertaining as either of them remains to be unseen. Speaking of Kekkai Sensen, where the heck is tha —
Speaking of superheroes, this season sees the release of the much hyped anime One-Punch Man.
This show about a man. A true man. He aspires to be the best hero in the world, in fact, he trains so hard that his hair has all fallen off. He does 100 push-ups, 100 sit-ups, 100 squats and 10km runs everyday! He’s the strongest man in the world, and he’s so strong that he could disintegrate his enemies with just one punch.
Dafuq is this?
My gosh, creativity seems to be overflowing in this place. Last season, we had Classroom Crisis, which sounded every bit like that epic, mind-boggling action, horror, mystery, supernatural, mystery anime that was. (Sarcasm, check.)
Nope, it’s not about weightlifting, or a “slice-of-life” featuring a group of labourer cat/dog/rabbit girls. There’s something much, much better.
It’s a sailor uniform. No, it’s a bodysuit. No, it’s actually a sailor uniform plus a body suit! That’s it, guys! This is an embodiment of anime, modern day art as we know it. Oh, look at how perfectly practical it is, with the snowy plains all around, not to mention, it is the perfect embodiment of the cuteness of the sailor uniform and sexiness of the bodysuit!! Guys…this is it…I’m going to nirw–
Gakusen Toshi Asterisk
Ever wondered, what life’s like if an asteroid smashes down on Earth and destroying numerous cities and taking over countless lives, but somehow the asteroid grants you and numerous others superpowers?
You go to school, of course. I mean, that’s the logical thing to do, right?
Garo: Guren no Tsuki
Last year, Studio Mappa gave us the underrated Garo: Honoo no Kokuin, and now, adding to the franchise is Garo: Guren no Tsuki, which by the way, has got nothing to do with the previous Garo adaptation. This adaptation is a period drama set in the Heian period.
Not that I have any idea what that means.
Anyway, I’m looking forward to this show after that awesome Garo: Honoo no Kokuin. Looking good, that’s for sure.
Subete ga F ni naru The Perfect Insider
Another mystery anime, which revolves around some guy with another girl who finds a corpse, and it turns out to be a serial murder case and yadda yadda yadda…
Geez, everybody wanna be Detective Conan, nowadays.
Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru
Hey, kids! Ever wanted to be an anthropologist?
Squeaky kid: What’s that?
It’s a job where you can play with bones and craft them into weapons where you fight the Demon Lord!
Squeaky kid: Cool! I’ve always wanted to be an ant no polo jeans!
No, this show is not a rip-off from the FOX TV Series Bones. For starters, no FBI involved here. This show revolves this high school kid who has an extremely beautiful girlfriend in her 20s. She also love bones very much…
…and the duo goes around solving mysteries…pertaining to bones.
Oh, she’s not even an ant no polo jeans, whatever that means.
There is more stuff going this season, as the Monogatari Series enters its (supposedly) final story arc with Owarimonogatari, as millions worldwide bemoan the loss of the beloved Loli Triangle. Nothing will ever be the same after the loss of —
It gets even more exciting as Haikyuu! (to quote Gigguk : OVERLY FRIENDLY METROSEXUAL MEN TOSSING THEIR BALLS IN EACH OTHERS FACE THE ANIME VOLLEYBALL EDITION) and K Project gets their respective second seasons.
You could say that this Fall 2015 would be dominated by sequels as it sees the release of two sequels of last year and this year’s arguably best shows.
Oh, yes, please! This is the show that featured last year’s husbando of the year:
Yes, this jobless a**-like character is much more popular than you or any of your hikikimori friends could ever be. He’s funny, stupid, self-centered, has a dangerous and mysterious past and most importantly, he has hands so sweaty that they could potential flood the entire world with his sweat alone.
Owari no Seraph S2
Remember this show from this year’s Spring season? It had everything an anime fan could ever want! It has action, it has gripping plot, it has romance, it has an adorable group of underaged girls with superpowers, and finally, it has the word “GAY” written on its forehead!!
Don’t worry, though, peeps. I’m not judging you or anything, it’s just that I think it should be something we could talk about. Cause if you were gay…
Finally, the show we’ve all been waiting for…
The anime so dark and grim…that it would darken your souls…
Shingeki! Kyojin Chuugakkou
Eren! The heck happened to you? Tell me, who did this to you? Was it… Levi? Was it your crazy dad who vanished into thin air, never to come back ever again? Or *inhales deeply* Mikasa?
So, yeah, that’s it! As usual, I didn’t go through the entire list of anime scheduled this fall, but I tried. Trust me, I tried. And for the last time, I don’t feel like mentioning Shinmai Maou no Testament Burst.
Anyway, thanks for bearing with my nonsensical tirade of sorts till the end. Did I miss any of the shows you think I should pay attention to? Be sure to comment and let me know. Also, if you’re interested, do check out my other posts and reviews. Give me more views, I have puppies.
So, I’ll see you guys in the next one. As always, cheerio.
