Now that every show has aired several episodes—and then a couple more, while I took my sweet time putting the post together—it’s time to tell you what we’ll be blogging this season. This is Random Curiosity’s Fall 2016 blogging schedule.

As always, this is a tentative overview of our plans for the new season . . . is what we used to say, but with multiple episodes under our belts, we’re pretty confident in our picks. Will some of them blow up in our faces? Probably. But this is what we’re going with.

Fune wo Amu – 01

「茫洋」 (Bouyou)
“Vastness”

Written as: Extensive Ocean — like the dream-conjured sea waves of a hundred thousand words suffocating an unsuccessful salesman’s comprehension of language.

Girlish Number – 01

「やさぐれ千歳と腐った業界」 (Yasagure Chitose to Kusatta Gyoukai)
“The Apathetic Chitose and the Rotten Industry”

Girlish Number is the bleak, cynical version of SHIROBAKO. It’s an anime about an aspiring seiyuu that shits on light novel adaptations, pokes fun at otaku, and reminds us how messed up this industry is. I never expected to be one of the more thought-provoking shows this season.

Long Riders! – 01

「小さな奇跡」 (Chisana Kiseki)
“A Small Miracle”

More slice of slice than sports anime – like Yama no Susume and Bakuon!! had a college-aged baby.

Udon no Kuni no Kiniro Kemari – 01

「ぶっかけうどん」 (Bukkake udon)
“Bukkake Udon”

It’s the one Seinfeldism I find most indispensable for blogging: “It’s so nice when it happens good.”

Watashi ga Motete Dousunda – 01

「できるかな?リアル乙女ゲー」 (Dekiru ka na? Riaru Otome ge)
“Can She Do It? A Real Life Otome Game”

Whether fujoshi or not, there’s a lot here for anime fans to collectively giggle over.

ClassicaLoid – 01

「ベトとモツと音羽館」 (Beto to Motsu to Otowakan)

3-gatsu no Lion – 01

「桐山零 / 河沿いの町」 (Kiriyama Rei / Kawazoi no Machi)
“Kiriyama Rei / The Town Along the River”

It’s hard to resist poking fun at Shinbou now and then, but even I have to admit that sometimes he just makes it work.

Continue Reading "3-gatsu no Lion – 01"

Occultic;Nine – 01

「たくさんの人 UNDERWATER」 (Takusan no Hito UNDERWATER)

Natsume Yuujinchou Go – 01

「変わらぬ姿」 (Kawaranu Sugata)
“Unchanging Form”

When it comes to me and Natsume Yuujinchou, time is an elastic concept.

ALL OUT!! – 01

「今年の1年はウケるな」 (Kotoshi no Ichinen wa Ukeru na)
“This Year’s First-Years are Hilarious”

That was the sports anime standard, for better or worse.

Continue Reading "ALL OUT!! – 01"

Lostorage Incited WIXOSS – 01

「記憶/裏と表」 (Kioku/Ura to Hyou)

「FIGHT SONG」

Yuri!!! on Ice – 01

「テレビ朝日」 (Terebiasahi)
“Easy as Pirozhki!! The Grand Prix Final of Tears”

Without sounding too extreme, this was one of the best anime episodes of 2016.
