Fall 2014 Preview!

Say good-bye to the hot summer temperatures with a refreshing fall breeze and a slew of new anime for your viewing pleasure. There are some big hitters making their triumphant return, like Fate/Stay Night diving into its Unlimited Blade Works route and Log Horizon starting its second season. Some crazy slice-of-lifes making their fall debut include the mermaid-related Ore no Furo Jijou and the Akiba based bookstore Denki-Gai no Honya-san. There’s also a bunch of your typical fare to fill in the cracks, like Kyoto Animation’s slackstick drama Amagi Brilliant Park, a Sunrise original called Cross Ange: Tenshi to Ryuu no Rondo, A-1 pictures’ part-medieval part-shounen Nanatsu no Taizai, a high school based fantasy known as Inou-Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de from Studio Trigger, and Studio Ghibli’s first foray into television with Sanzoku no Musume Ronja. One’s taste in anime can be really subjective, but I think this season’s offerings provide enough for anyone to find something they’ll like. So what are you waiting for? Start scrolling!

Hunter X Hunter 2011 – 147

「スクイ×ト×ミライ」 (Sukui x to x Mirai)
“Salvation × And × Future”

I suppose the only surprise by now would be if Hunter X Hunter didn’t surprise me. So I guess this episode was unsurprising…

Haikyuu!! – 24

「脱・“孤独の王様”」 (Datsu, “Kodoku no Oosama”)
“The Former, ‘King of Solitude’”

As far as this adaptation of Haikyuu is concerned, this episode is the finale. The past five episodes depicting Karasuno’s match against Aoba Jousai have culminated to this third set, win-by-two moment, and it ends in a way that’s not as surprising as one would think. Or at least, not as surprising to me as it may have been to some other viewers.

Barakamon – 10

「だっちいこで / みんなで行こう」 (Dacchi Ikode / Minna de Ikou)
“Let’s All Go Together”

If this week’s episode is any indication of what’s to come, I think I’m going to die from loss of electrolytes next week.

ALDNOAH.ZERO – 11

「ヴォスタリスクの攻防 -Wind, Snow and Stars-」 (Novuosutarisuku no Kobo -Wind, Snow and Stars-)
“Battle of Novosibirsk -Wind, Snow and Stars-”

That was one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever seen.  And I watch anime!

Tokyo Ghoul – 11

「衝天」 (Shoten)
“High Spirits”

One thing’s for sure – either Tokyo Ghoul has a second season announcement in its back pocket or this is one of the greatest rush jobs in anime history.

Shirogane no Ishi Argevollen – 11

「拳(いかり)」 (Kobushi (Ikari))
“Fist (Rage)”

If there’s one thing that Argevollen’s done well so far–whether inadvertently or intentionally–it would be how it’s almost impossible to tell what’s in store every episode.
