Shinmai Maou no Testament – 01

「妹ができた日」 (Imouto ga Dekita hi)
“The Day I Got a Little Sister”

Yes, this is a magical-fantasy-action-harem-ecchi anime, but so far it’s executing well on both the concept and its own story. I was optimistic going in, and it hasn’t let me down yet.

「神様またはじめました」 (Kamisama mata hajimemashita)
“I’ve Started the “Being a God” Thing Again”

Every schedule is better off when it’s blessed with a show or two like Kamisama Hajimemashita – ones that are simply a pleasure to watch and easy to enjoy.

Absolute Duo – 01

「焔牙(ブレイズ)」 (Homura Kiba (Bureizu))
“Blaze”

I didn’t come in with high expectations, so I wasn’t that disappointed. I was still disappointed, though.

Yuri Kuma Arashi – 01

「私はスキをあきらめない」 (Watashi wa Suki o Akiramenai)
“Never Back Down On Love”

I think it’s fair to say that Ikuhara Kunihiko’s return to anime was just as wild as expected.

Winter 2015 Preview!

Winter is here, and with it comes another season of anime. This is a light season, with only 31 new series airing. There are some familiar names, including another TV movie-style entry into the Monogatari series, Tsukimonogatari, the speedy return of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, the second half of the trainwreck fantastic spectacle ALDNOAH.ZERO, and more ghoul horror from Tokyo Ghoul. The wildly popular manga Ansatsu Kyoushitsu is also finally getting its anime, as is the perhaps even more popular ship girl video game, Kancolle. This season even features the long-awaited return of Durarara!! That’s just a taste, so read on for the full scoop.

* This preview will be kept at the top for the next while, so be sure to scroll past it, check the slider on top, or the Recent Entries on your right for new posts.

Monthly Impressions – October 2014

Another season, another monthly impressions. This season offers us a wide selection of sci-fi, fantasy and comedy series coupled with carryovers from the summer so there’s bound to be something that catches your eye. This post brings you our initial impressions of shows that we’ve been following for the past several weeks (plus any summer carryovers). If you’re wondering which shows have passed the three-episode rule or which ones you’re missing out on, give this a read through. On the other hand, there may be shows that haven’t met our expectations and you’ll hear about them here as well. We would love to hear your thoughts on shows as well so if there’s anything that we could have missed, feel free to discuss it here.

Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru – 01, 02

「乙女の真心 / ろうたけたる思い」 (Otome no Magokoro / Routaketaru Omoi)
“A Maiden’s True Heart / Noble Thoughts”

Another Studio Gokumi slice-of-life premieres … or maybe not. With a surreal turn, this original series is more than it first appears.

Someone at Studio Ghibli enjoyed working on Ni no Kuni immensely, it seems.

PSYCHO-PASS 2 – 01

「正義の天秤 <299/300> 」 (Seigi no Tenbin <299/300>)
“The Scales of Justice <299/300>”

It’s back! My favorite anime from the past two or so years is finally back with a sequel! I’m excited beyond belief and this post is going to sound like a mix of fan girls and overhype so you’ll have to give me the benefit of the doubt for this premiere at least.
