Weekly Shounen Jump
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.
As usual, DO NOT PANIC! We’ll introduce plenty of shows before we settle on our schedule. We let ourselves cover 1-3 episodes before a blogging decision must be made, and we’ll use them. (Related: All of us die inside when people whine that X or Y show isn’t being covered. And who would want to make us suffer? Don’t answer that question.) Here are a few of the shows we’re planning to introduce, in order of premiere date:
- Chaos Dragon: Sekiryuu Sen’eku
- Aquarian Logos
- Ranpo Kitan: Game of Laplace
- Joukamachi no Dandelion
- Ushio to Tora
- GATE: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakeri
- Durarara!!x2 Ten
- Gatchaman Crowds Insight
- Dragon Ball Super
- God Eater
- Jitsu wa Watashi wa
- Himouto! Umaru-chan
And more. That doesn’t mean any of those, much less all of them, will be picked up for full coverage. It just means that one of us is planning to do at least one post on them, to introduce the series to you.
In staff news, Zanibas will be going on indefinite hiatus as of this season. He just graduated from school and is joining the wonderful world of working adults (I’m just kidding, it sucks), which has left him little time to blog. He hopes to figure everything out and return to blogging when his schedule allows it, but he doesn’t have any idea of when that will happen. Until then, he’s going to continue helping behind the scenes, and might appear for an occasional post if one of needs a week off.
That’s all the news I have for you this time. Be sure to check this post periodically for additional series pickups. As always, thank you for reading. Let’s have another fun season of anime together!
- 07/12: It would be a tragedy if the antics at Wagnaria went uncovered in its final season. Fortunately, Samu isn’t about to let that happen! WORKING!!! has been picked up.
- 07/15: It turns out people are digging Sore ga Seiyuu! after all. Pardon me while I do the I-told-you-so dance. *dances, dances* What was I here for? Oh, yeah—Passerby has picked up Sore ga Seiyuu!
