Random Curiosity

Fall 2018 Preview!

Ah, spring is here! Well, it is down here in Australia anyway, where the weather is heating up and the sooty smell of bushfire is already in the air. Fun. In animeland, though, it’s autumn, the season of food and plenty, so accordingly we have a fresh crop of shows ready for harvest. The seeds of sequels sown sooner have since seen sprout, giving us six more episodes of the singular FLCL, a third season of the seminal To Aru Majutsu no Index, and an insane 4-cour streak of Sword Art Online. Still starving for serials? Then Fairy Tale, Tokyo Ghoul, and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure all serve second (or more) seasons. But if you’re sick to your stomach of the same script, you should seek special stimulation. The least straightforward shows of any season are the originals, and Fall 2018 has several across the spectrum, from P.A. Work’s supernatural slice-of-life Irozuku Sekai no Ashita kara to the hard science-fiction of RErideD to… whatever Release the Spyce supposes to screen. But enough of this silliness. As always, our crack team of animethusiasts have taste-tested all of this season’s offerings and are waiting to provide you with samples and suggestions for your informed viewing pleasure. This is Random Curiosity’s Fall 2018 Preview.
