Weekly Shounen Jump
Now that you’ve seen the winter preview, it’s time to give you a first look at some of the shows we’ll be blogging. This is Random Curiosity’s Winter 2015 blogging schedule.
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.
As usual, DO NOT PANIC! Plenty of introductory posts will be made before we settle on our shows. We allow ourselves to blog 1-3 episodes before a blogging decision must be made, and we’ll use them. Here are a few of the shows we’re planning to introduce, in order or premiere date:
- Kami-sama Hajimemashita ◎
- Shinmai Maou no Testament
- Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata
- THE IDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls
- Death Parade
- THE ROLLING GIRLS
- Seiken Tsukai no World Break
- Yoru no Yatterman
- Junketsu no Maria
That doesn’t mean all (or any) of those will get picked up, or even that they’ll get intro posts. Those are just the ones we’re planning to introduce right now, so I wouldn’t be surprised if a few get added to the schedule.
In staff news, Kairi will be stepping down as of this season. She has been planning to leave after the fall season for a while now, due to her increasingly onerous course load at school, but after she found out that Akatsuki no Yona was 2-cour, she wanted to see if she could finish it out. Turns out her original plan was better. Please thank Kairi for her time writing for us, and wish her luck as she finishes off her education.
On the more positive side, Guardian Enzo and Zanibas will be coming off their hiatuses. Zephyr is back as well, sort of … though his name isn’t by any shows, he will be helping out with ALDNOAH.ZERO again, and if anything catches his eye, he may pounce on it. Divine is also hovering around, in case anything tickles his fancy.
In series news, Samu will be dropping World Trigger after one more episode, to update everyone who never reads these posts. (Which is, I assume, almost everybody.) He plans to continue covering it as part of the Monthly Impressions, starting in January. Zanibas has also decided to finish off Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, which is airing its second cour this season. While he’s well aware of the show’s flaws, there are other parts he enjoys, which is what he’ll be focusing on. Please keep that in mind.
That’s it for now. Make sure to check in on this post periodically for additional pick ups—the post will be added to the side bar shortly. Thank you for reading, and have fun!
- 01/13: Prooof has gotten swamped with real life, so he will no longer be covering the Bleach manga, and will be going on indefinite hiatus. Thank you for everything Prooof, and enjoy yourself.
- 01/16: The drum beats on to that inevitable conclusion—that Cherrie will be covering Death Parade. Psych!
- 01/17: Bleach fans, you’re in luck—though Prooof may be stepping aside, our other orange blogger just couldn’t let the series go. Samu will be covering the Bleach manga.
- 01/18: A remarkably satirical romcom can only be covered by a remarkable blogger! But I’m busy, so Passerby will have to do. He has picked up Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata.
- 01/30: The hype is real, and as far as Takaii is concerned, it’s deserved. Takaii will be covering Kuroko no Basuke 3!
