First, the sequels:
If you know me, you knew this would be here. Holy shit am I excited. There’s even going to be theater showings in the United States. I even bought the book.
Reasons I’m excited: It’s monogatari and it’s SHAFT
GATE Season 2
I was very pleasantly surprised by GATE last summer. It looked good, sounded good, felt good. I like the characters and enjoyed my time with them, and now I feel like going back for more. All hail Rory Mercury-sama, our true lord and savior.
Durarara x2 Ketsu
I’m a big fan of the Durarara series, and I can’t wait to see how this season wraps up. They added a lot of interesting new characters and gave intriguing changes to the old ones. I just hope it they can wrap up all these loose threads into a satisfying little bow.
Okay, before I go into anything about the “new things”, let me preface that by saying I am going off of very limited criteria. Basically, knowledge of the studio and PVs. So don’t expect anything intelligent or insightful from this. Just like the rest of my blog.
Musaigen no Phantom World
That chick has some nice sweater cows. KyoAni has made some great things, like Beyond the Boundary and Chuunibyo. I really liked Beyond the Boundary. Also, sweater cows.
Boku Dake ga Inai Machi
Looks…interesting, I guess. A-1 Pictures has been hit and miss with me in the past, and just like any other anime I hope this one is a homerun.
Looks…funny. Problem is, it also looks like FUNimation has the streaming rights. I have nothing against FUNimation, but I typically stick to Crunchyroll out of sheer convenience. Also, the studio that’s making it, Feel, did Oregairu 2. I really liked Oregairu 2. So I might just give this one a chance.
Comedy. Shoujo. Slice of life. Sounds good to me. Also, Production Reed did Squid Girl. So, uh…yeah.
The Maybe Pile:
Shoujo-tachi wa Kouya wo Mezasu
I know nothing of Project No.9 and have seen none of their work. This is basically a shot in the dark. Hope it hits.
Prince of Stride: Alternative
I don’t typically watch sports anime, but Madhouse has a really great portfolio. So I might just give this one a try.
