WORKING!!! – 01

「ワグナリア戦線異状なし」 (Wagunaria Sensen Ijou Nashi)
“Waganaria – No Front Line Incident”

It’s hard to believe that it’s been four years since the second season of WORKING!!. Time really has flown by, but I’m happy to report that nothing has changed.

GATCHAMAN Crowds Insight – 00, 01

「inbound / contact point」

A short prologue episode gets us back up to speed, just in time for the first episode to confuse me all to hell again. Too much too fast, Tatsunoko Production!

Charlotte – 01

「我他人を思う」 (Ga Tanin o Omou)
“I Think About Others”

Here we go. The start to what could be the series to watch for this season.

Senki Zesshou Symphogear GX – 01

「奇跡の殺戮者」 (Kiseki no Satsuriku Sha)
“Slaughterers of Miracles”

Talk about starting things off with a bang.

Rokka no Yuusha – 01

「地上最強の男」 (Chijou Saikyou no Otoko )
“The Strongest Man in the World”

I had high expectations going into Rokka no Yuusha, which turned out to be exactly what I thought it would be: a spunky fantasy adventure with some killer mystery at the core, set in an Aztec-inspired world packed with detailed lore and history. Count me in.

GATE: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakeri – 01

「自衛隊、異世界へ行く」 (Jieitai, Isekai e Iku)
“The Self-Defense Force Goes to Another World”

For once, I’m less concerned about what an anime is and more about what it could be.

Aoharu x Kikanjuu – 01

「死なない殺し合いを始めようか」 (Shina nai Koroshiai o Hajimeyo u ka )
“Let’s Start This Deathless Death Match”

I don’t exactly know what I was expecting from Aoharu x Kikanjuu, but I certainly didn’t think it would be this good.

Classroom Crisis – 01

「遅れてきた転校生」 (Okurete Kita Tenkōsei)
“The Delayed Transfer Student”

Not really a romantic comedy, not really a space opera, this first episode of Classroom Crisis refuses to be pigeonholed.

Ranpo Kitan: Game of Laplace – 01

「人間椅子(前編)」 (Ningen isu (Zenpen))

“Human Chair (Prequel)”

Welcome back, NoitaminA – it’s almost like you never left.

Okusama ga Seitokaichou! – 01

「生徒会長の嫁ぎ先」 (Seito Kaichou no Totsugi-saki)
“The Student Council President’s Married-into Family”

A lot flirty, a good bit ecchi … and yet, the short format makes even this simple story seem simultaneously rushed and lethargic, denying us the time it takes to properly enjoy the antics. At least for this first episode.

GANGSTA. – 01

「NAUGHTY BOYS」

GANGSTA. is here to kick off the new summer season. It’s gritty and cruel, and with more sexual violence than I would have liked, but there’s certainly nothing else quite like it right now.

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.

Summer 2015 Preview!

Summer has returned, and like (slightly delayed) clockwork, it’s time for another season preview. There are some strong contenders for your anime watching hours this summer. There are plenty of exciting sequels, such as the perennially popular Durarara!!x2 Ten, the triumphant return (and conclusion) of the aptly named workplace comedy WORKING!!!, the slice-of-life countryside antics of Non Non Biyori Repeat, and the third summer in a row of the magical girl spin-off Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya Zwei Herz!. New adaptations include the Eastern European flavored GANGSTA, the JSDF invasion of a fantasy land in GATE: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakeri, the ufotable video game adaptation of God Eater, and the apocalyptic emotional roller coaster Gakkou Gurashi!. There are even some great promising originals, such as the romantic comedy set on Mars, Classroom Crisis, and the likely Maeda Jun tear jerker in Charlotte. There’s even a very special guest in the long-awaited fantasy of a new Dragon Ball anime, Dragon Ball Super! Some say summer is no good, but if even a few of these pan out, it could be a great season. This is Random Curiosity’s Summer 2015 season preview.

* 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 – April 2015

Spring is finally here and I’m so delighted that the weather has warmed up ~ I love the spring season because not only is it one of my most anticipated seasons, but the workload is generally lighter so I have more time to indulge in my hobbies. Admittedly, this season features a ton of sequels and for good reason – it just shows what a hit the original anime was. For all the new adaptations this season, there’s a lot of potential out there that I urge you to give it a shot. There’s nothing to lose by giving the first few episodes a chance and I hope our impressions below will help you decide what is and is not right for you. As always, your opinions are welcome too!
