Now that the summer preview has been released, it’s time to give you a first look at the shows we’ll be blogging this season. This is Random Curiosity’s Spring 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.

Re-Kan – Life-Affirming Ghost Stories

Ghosts, friends, smiles, warmth, & girls holding hands. This picture says it all.

A slice-of-life with ghosts. What could have easily been a gag anime with a tinge of yuri became one of the more contemplative, meaningful, and life-affirming series of spring—even though a large part of the cast was already dead.

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.

Punch Line – Panties Will Save the World

Funnily enough, this isn’t really a fanservice/ecchi anime…

Who would have thought it… Punch Line actually made sense in the end!

DanMachi – A Mythical Hero Rises

“The season was a success, guys. Let’s go get drunk.” And so they did.

It didn’t start out especially stunning, but the foundation was solid, and with time it began to distinguish itself from other magical-fantasy-action-harem anime. It’s more than an adventure; it’s a myth in the making. It’s a hero’s tale.
