Bungou Stray Dogs – 14

「戻れない場所」 (Moderenai Basho)
“Nowhere to Return”

It seems like Bungou Stray Dogs will be taking the prequel route with this season, focusing more on Oda than Dazai but still keeping it within the Port Mafia.

Fune wo Amu – 01

「茫洋」 (Bouyou)

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

Ajin – 14

「なんかめんどくさくなってきた」 (Nanka Mendokusakunatte Kita)
“Things Have Become Difficult”

Either the CGI has gotten a little better since the first season or I’ve gotten used to it, because I hardly noticed it.

Hibike! Euphonium 2 – 02

「とまどいフルート」 (Tomadoi Furuuto)
“Hesitation Flute”

It’s a pool episode! Except it’s not your typical pool episode, because it’s all about band drama.

「たのしい創作」 (Tanoshii Sousaku)
“Game-Making Is Fun”

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.
