[FALL 2016] Anime Lineup

Whew, this season sure is a doozy; a lot of crap to  sift through…


Shows that I think look good and or willing to add to my backlog:

81891

Cheating Craft

  • Unique-ish plot
  • Pretty good artwork
  • Intro episode could have turned away a lot of viewers; shit was PURE exposition via words
  • Only ~12 minutes duration a episode so it’s not asking for a huge investment

81906l

Keijo!!!!!!!! 

  • booty booty booty, rocking everywhere
  • rocking everywhere

81679l

Kiitarou Shounen no Youkai Enikki

  • TV short
  • Elementary comedic tones
  • Cutsie/bloomy artwork
  • I dig the theme/pretense

81399l

Nanbaka

  • Reminds me of a more colorful and lighthearted Prison School
  • The artwork and designs are wild as fuck, saturated, but pretty clean
  • VA cast is very solid
  • Grabbed my attention immediately, looking forward to watching this for sure

81133

Trickster

  • The “least attention-grabbing” hype-looking show I’ve encountered in a while
  • It has the workings for a decent show; diverse characters, action, hints of comedy, surprise/shocks
  • Even after the first episode quick skim, not sure where this show is heading; 50/50(?)
  • Art is on the verge of feeling outdated i.e., circa mid 2000’s

82293l

Bungou Stray Dogs 2nd Season

  • grandfathered in via my pleasant first impressions of the previous (1st) season

[HorribleSubs] Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.51_[2016.01.13_18.25.20]

Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm

  • So…much….moe
  • So….little…time
  • Surprisingly decent art and design
  • I already have a crush on the teacher ❤
  • …harem?
  • It’s like some sort of SOL + rom-com + sci-fi type of concoction
  • Okay, now there’s some competitive sports element to it now(thefuck?)
  • So far, a pointless eye-candy show but the sports thingy… hmmm

[HorribleSubs] Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.59_[2016.01.13_18.28.58].png

Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!

  • I gotta admit, not much substance found in the winter 2016 lineup but damn these shows sure are pretty
  • Well okay, this is some humor I haven’t seen in a while
  • This is like, some ridiculous rendition of [ SAO ] and or [ DanMachi ]; I dig it
  • Characters are good so far; MC isn’t a annoying piece of shit
  • This might be the very first “MMO-like show” to lure me into the genre

Termainé!

The selection process

[HorribleSubs] Ooyasan wa Shishunki! - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_00.08_[2016.01.11_17.59.09].png

Ooyasan wa Shishunki!

  • TV short very short
  • Err, not much of anything to pass critique on
  • Empty, just like my soul
  • Not a single solid-hitting joke at all? That’s a paddlin’

[HorribleSubs] Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_02.23_[2016.01.11_18.03.55].png

Saijaku Muhai no Bahamut

  • Magic/Fantasy thingy– “I guess I can manage…”
  • Stereotypical ecchi/harem elements?– “Well, this is a bonus…”
  • Male lead is an annoying piece of voiced shit so far; oh my god, no wonder why … [ female voice actress ]
  • Ah, I see the harem already… and it’s only been (looks at invisible watch on wrist) 7 minutes
  • Mecha…? “Oh, fuck off…”
  • Hey, that’s some decent animation right there
  • Is this show trying to squeeze all the cliche anime elements in the world into its opening episode?
  • There’s literally only two(2) things that I’m interested in so far but after finding out, I’ll probably drop this shit

[HorribleSubs] Sekkou Boys - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.18_[2016.01.09_10.59.42].png
Sekkou Boys

  • TV short
  • MC is crazy fucking random spaz
  • While the idea of using those sculptures as main focuses are new, I don’t like it and I don’t appreciate the fucking file->import designs

[HorribleSubs] Oshiete! Galko-chan - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.13_[2016.01.09_11.11.55].pngOshiete! Galko-chan

  • TV short
  • Artwork is so-so but forgivable
  • Female lead is a cute lil’ thang
  • 4-Koma style scenes
  • Jokes + gag humor
  • Female lead makes it pretty watchable, just barely though

[DeadFish] Dagashi Kashi - 01 [720p][AAC].mp4_snapshot_08.20_[2016.01.09_11.21.00].png
Dagashi Kashi

  • The fucking eyes in this show… @_@
  • Great hitting humor that constantly jabs at you
  • Characters introduced so far were fun in their own right
  • This is gonna be a great little show, plus it’s based on candy!
  • No gripes so far

[HorribleSubs] Koukaku no Pandora - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.58_[2016.01.09_11.32.00].png
Koukaku no Pandora

  • Moe meets mecha/action/sci-fi…?
  • Idea is jokes but full length episodes? GTFO
  • Has a low-budget feel to it despite the overall setting

[HorribleSubs] Divine Gate - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.13_[2016.01.09_12.44.40]
Divine Gate

  • Action show + sci-fi meets supernatural powers?
  • Hurray for typical character designs in a superpower show
  • Generic superpower show of this season
  • Lots of characters holy shit -> LINK

[BudLightSubs] Luck and Logic - 01 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.59_[2016.01.09_13.02.33].png
Luck and Logic

  • SurprisedLook.jpeg; artwork is not bad
  • So many story elements and genres… what the hell is this
  • Oh, another fantasy/superpower show huh?
  • Okay, so this is mahou shoujo + fantasy + supernatural + god/myth + … comedy?!
  • Has that [Gatchaman Crowds] sort of feel
  • I like the male lead and other characters so far despite harem incoming

Keep, keep, keep
