Now that the fall preview has been released, it’s time to give you a first look at the shows we’ll be blogging this season. This is Random Curiosity’s Fall 2015 blogging schedule.

As always, this is a tentative overview of our plans for the new season. We’ll also be doing introductory posts on many of the shows we’re not covering, so if something catches our eyes, things will be shifted around to accommodate. The schedule will be updated to reflect any changes.

As usual, DO NOT PANIC! (You’re panicking. Stop it.) We’ll introduce plenty of shows before we settle on our schedule. We let ourselves cover 1-3 episodes before a blogging decision is made, and we’ll use them. Here are a few of the shows we’re planning to introduce, in order of premiere date:

…and more. That doesn’t mean any of those, much less all of them, will be picked up for full coverage. It just means that at least one of us is planning to do an introductory post for each one.

In staff news, I cleaned up the legend and took out the writers who are on hiatus. You’ll notice that Zephyr’s name isn’t on the list. He’s going on hiatus as of this season. His hope is to return in spring or summer of next year, though he’ll still be contributing to posts like the season previews, and will likely take care of the year end post for us. In the meantime, I’ve gone ahead and devoured his soul, SOUL EATER-style, and become the new sci-fi blogger. Rar.

A couple of quick notes: (1) We haven’t totally decided who’s going to be blogging One-Punch Man yet, though I went ahead and put it under Samu’s name so y’all wouldn’t freak out. We’ll figure out who exactly will blog it after the first episode. (2) Don’t expect the first Heavy Objects post from me until Sunday at the earliest. Stilts-oniichan is moving this weekend, which’ll have me a bit busy.

That’s all the news I have for you this time. Be sure to check this post periodically for additional series pickups, and as always, thank you for reading.

Updates:

  • 10/09: The fight is over, and one man emerged victorious. Only for him, it took more than one punch. Samu will be covering One-Punch Man.
  • 10/09: You asked for it, and you’re getting it. RC’s new sci-fi blogger (rar) is dipping his toe back into fantasy waters. Stilts will be blogging Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen.
  • 10/09: Holy superhero mish-mash Batman, three announcements in one day? That’s right. Passerby has picked up Concrete Revolutio: Choujin Gensou.
  • 10/10: Takkun’s going back to school one more time. Takaii will be covering Gakusen Toshi Asterisk.

    I had a feeling Onepunch Man blogging was going to take a while to decide, lol. It’s probably the first show since Attack on Titan that has so overshadowed everything else in its season from a hype perspective.

    • September 28, 2015 at 8:20 pmguardian enzo

      There are multiples of us that would never allow OPM not to be blogged here – someone was always going to take it. It’ll shake itself out.

    • September 28, 2015 at 9:58 pmZen

      Ah, Onepunch Man. I found the manga to be pretty funny in the beginning, but it eventually lost its luster for me. I mean when you think about it, it’s just chapters and chapters of the exact same formula over, and over again; ridiculous-comedic enemy(s) causes trouble, gets pwned by Saitama (With a little pseudo-philosophical banter between the combatants thrown in for good measure), ad nauseum, ad infinitum. The whole Uber-OP protagonist pwns all premise is something we don’t get all too often in a market saturated with cookie-cutter power-up shounen, and from a comedic-mechanical standpoint this series is stronger than average. But when a series runs with the same old template formula for something like 90+ chapters (Of OPM’s original webcomic), it eventually inevitably becomes its own cliche- regardless of how fresh the template formula initally was. Onepunch-Man is a one-trick-pony…

  • September 28, 2015 at 7:52 pmJason

    Glad to see that Heavy Object and Gundam are being picked up. A bit sad to see that Owarimonogatari is not but hopefully that’ll change once the season actually starts. If not you guys will still do Monthly Retrospectives, right? Hopefully it’ll be discussed in those if nobody changes their minds and picks it up.

    • September 28, 2015 at 8:23 pmStilts

      As noted below, I just accidentally marked Owari no Seraph instead of Owarimonogatari. Passerby is blogging the latter already.

  • September 28, 2015 at 8:11 pmPotbrick7

    No owarimonogatari?

    • September 28, 2015 at 8:21 pmStilts

      Oh shit, sorry. I marked Owari no Seraph instead of Owarimonogatari. Fixed~

  • September 28, 2015 at 8:22 pmAmiluhur

    I’ve been wondering about whether to pick Gundam Tekketsu no Orphans or not as i’m neither a Gundam fan or familiar with the franchise. But seeing Enzo’s name up there, suddenly gave me this weird feelings that the show will somehow work for me.

    Also, Owari no Seraph getting coverage is the least thing i expect here.

    • September 28, 2015 at 8:24 pmStilts

      Gah! Everyone notices the one goof-up I made before I realized it >_<

      As noted above, Owari no Seraph isn’t being picked up. I marked it instead of Owarimonogatari by mistake.

  • September 28, 2015 at 8:30 pmOri

    Yay for randomc on going back to its roots and picking up a Gundam series. :)

  • September 28, 2015 at 8:33 pmrochichan

    Little sad that Divine isn’t taking Haikyuu (always loved his input and little facts of volleyball) but SUPER excited that Samu took it because he has a Tsukki bias (and second season Tsukki will shine) so I’m looking forward to his posts! :D

    • September 28, 2015 at 8:43 pmStilts

      Fun fact: I’m 92% sure it was Samu’s application that made Divine want to blog about Haikyuu. Or if not his, someone’s,’cause I do believe Div only learned about the series when we were reading through those. Samu is the hidden founding father of RC Haikyuu blogging!

    • September 28, 2015 at 8:53 pmguardian enzo

      I made a play for it. Good series, but mostly I just wanted to see the veins on Samu’s forehead pop out.

      • September 29, 2015 at 4:15 amSamu

        Veins pop they did.

        @rochichan: Thanks! I’m really looking forward to blogging it. I won’t be focusing as much on the logistics of volleyball as Divine did, since I only know as much as the series tells us, so my coverage may be slightly different.

  • September 28, 2015 at 9:15 pmHylarn

    Huh, Concrete Revolutio to getting passed over is a surprise to me. Otherwise about what I was expecting

  • September 28, 2015 at 10:29 pmJayDrink

    Who is this Not Covering person and why do they get so dang many shows to cover? Do they not have a life outside of RC? -.-

    Really though, I couldn’t help but notice Cherrie’s lack of shows.. Is that subject to change as well or is she taking a break this season?

    • September 28, 2015 at 10:46 pmStilts

      Cherr is still around. She’s batting clean up, and will see what she wants to blog as intros are done.

    • September 29, 2015 at 11:41 amCherrie

      I’m here *raises hand =)
      Just terribly busy and as always, I just go through what’s leftover to see what I like. I’ll find something to blog hopefully ^^

  • September 28, 2015 at 10:46 pmChaos2Frozen

    Oh wow Heavy Object is being covered! Thank you base Stilts!

    Shame about Utawarerumono though, Omni covered the original series almost 9 years ago.

  • September 28, 2015 at 11:08 pmSnooSnoo

    YES YES Underwater Ray Romano 2!

  • September 29, 2015 at 4:34 amWanderer

    Stilts has only chosen mecha series so far? …Are you feeling all right? ;)

    • September 29, 2015 at 10:22 amStilts

      I am the new sci-fi blogger! All of SFF is my domain! *froths at the mouth*

      • September 29, 2015 at 9:41 pmKoroshiyaKi

        Watch, everything scifi is going to turn into an ecchi series.

      • September 30, 2015 at 11:20 amStilts

        Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see? No, you clearly don’t know who you’re talking to, so let me clue you in. I do not go to the ecchi. I am the ecchi. A show gets blogged and you think I do it because it’s ecchi? No. I bring the ecchi!

        (I’m not gonna lie, Passerby made the same joke when we were deciding on shows, so I had that response ready >:D)

      • October 2, 2015 at 9:20 amOnePunch_Guy

        Yeah, Stilts. Yeah, ecchi!
        Thank you, Stilts. You are my favorite blogger in randomc.

    • September 29, 2015 at 5:33 pmdaikama

      @Wanderer: Yeah, I was surprised that Stilts went all mecha (so far?) as well.

      @Stilts: Change of pace/something different? Just curious. For some reason I figured you’d pick Utawarerumono, but it is a 2-cour show.

      • September 29, 2015 at 6:42 pmStilts

        Heavy Objects is 2-cour as well, and I picked that up!

        And yeah, I wanted a change of pace. There weren’t any fantasy shows that were REALLY grabbing me (though there are a few I’m still looking into), but some of the sci-fi stuff looked cool, so I figured why not?

        As for Utawarerumono, since I still haven’t seen the first season (I know, I probably don’t have to in order to watch this season, but I’m a weirdo and would prefer to see at least an episode or two), I figured I’d leave it to an intro and see how I’m feeling after my move.

  • September 29, 2015 at 4:57 ampenguuuu

    thanks as always for all your hard work, guys. looking forward to the intro posts to hopefully fish out any hidden gems!

  • September 29, 2015 at 7:35 amKingofConquerors

    Glad to see Subete ga F ni Naru and Sakurako-san being covered, looking forward to your coverage of those passerby and Samu!

    Kinda disappointed to see Young Black Jack being left out in the cold though

  • September 29, 2015 at 2:13 pmboingman

    Good to see that the new Inde…I mean Heavy Object has been picked up.

  • September 29, 2015 at 5:12 pmatomicliberator

    good to know that randomc is still going

    • September 29, 2015 at 5:21 pmLyfe

      I’m sure it’ll still be here when Log Horizon Season 3 comes out(Currently two chapters into Volume 11 atm on the authors website, anime ended at the end of vol 10).

  • September 29, 2015 at 7:08 pmSilivious

    I’m glad Heavy is being covered…but that also brings a question to mind…
    Horizon S3 WHEN!?
    ;-;

    • September 30, 2015 at 11:21 amStilts

      I know :*(

    • September 30, 2015 at 11:30 amLyfe

      If you mean Log Horizon Season 3, probably Fall 2016. I don’t think it’ll be a full season, and given the writers pace, they could adapt Volumes 11 and 12 by that point and what he has written for 13. I’m thinking 13 episodes at most from DEEN. Given that Season 2 sold worse than the first season, and although the show is mostly funded by the network it airs on, they likely won’t want to do a full season again.

      • September 30, 2015 at 1:50 pmSilivious

        I actually meant Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere, a title Stilts loves, and that I do too. XD Hence why he got the mention.

      • September 30, 2015 at 1:53 pmLyfe

        Oh okay, just somewhat confusing as there are two shows with that title that deserve a third season. And he also did cover Log Horizon on here too.

      • September 30, 2015 at 11:48 pmStilts

        I love both! And I hope for more seasons of both. Though I feel like another season of Kyoukaisen is more unlikely than another of Log Horizon. And having no more of either would be sad :(

        *wails to the unforgiving, uncaring heavens*

      • October 2, 2015 at 3:09 pmdamrod

        Stilts, why is a third season of Kyoukaisen so unlikely then?

  • September 30, 2015 at 9:43 amgustave154

    thanks for the schedule guys!! looking forward to reading everyone’s opinions this fall

  • October 2, 2015 at 1:15 pmdamrod

    Kinda weird to have a season without Stilts doing the ecchi shows…
    Who is going to be the ecchi writer this season if Stilts is not the one for that this time?!

  • October 2, 2015 at 1:30 pmichigo

    Cool! All the shows I plan to watch are being covered here. Thank you for the post!

  • October 5, 2015 at 10:51 amFrakyo

    Because Japan… the day has 26+ hours? that’s new.

    • October 10, 2015 at 12:51 amStilts

      We follow the same system that the Japanese broadcasters do. They reason that people don’t wake up at 1am to see a show, they stay up from the night before, so they attach it to the previous day. That’s how we’ve been doing it for years.

    I can’t hear you very well buy vigapro When it comes to gender splits – again in a possible challenge to preconceptions – men were found to be the biggest holiday spenders, allocating at least £918 each – compared with women who were set to spend an average of £830 this year.

    Seconded! Muv-Luv fans unite and help bringing one of the best LN franchises to the English world without fan translations!

    Also, if this project succeeds, it’s very likely that KimiNozo is next!

  • September 30, 2015 at 12:27 pmZephyr

    I’ll poke in here real quick and second the above. ^
