Weekly Shounen Jump
Now that the fall 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 Fall 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! (You’re panicking. Stop it.) We’ll introduce plenty of shows before we settle on our schedule. We let ourselves cover 1-3 episodes before a blogging decision is made, and we’ll use them. Here are a few of the shows we’re planning to introduce, in order of premiere date:
- Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen
- Komori-san wa Kotowarenai!
- Concrete Revolutio: Choujin Gensou
- Yuru Yuri San☆Hai!
- Ore ga Ojou-sama Gakkou ni “Shomin Sample” Toshite Gets♥Sareta Ken
- Dance with Devils
- Taimadou Gakuen 35 Shiken Shoutai
- Garo: Guren no Tsuki
- Shinmai Maou no Testament BURST
- Gochuumon wa Usagi Desuka??
- Owari no Seraph 2nd Season
…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 at least one of us is planning to do an introductory post for each one.
In staff news, I cleaned up the legend and took out the writers who are on hiatus. You’ll notice that Zephyr’s name isn’t on the list. He’s going on hiatus as of this season. His hope is to return in spring or summer of next year, though he’ll still be contributing to posts like the season previews, and will likely take care of the year end post for us. In the meantime, I’ve gone ahead and devoured his soul, SOUL EATER-style, and become the new sci-fi blogger. Rar.
A couple of quick notes: (1) We haven’t totally decided who’s going to be blogging One-Punch Man yet, though I went ahead and put it under Samu’s name so y’all wouldn’t freak out. We’ll figure out who exactly will blog it after the first episode. (2) Don’t expect the first Heavy Objects post from me until Sunday at the earliest. Stilts-oniichan is moving this weekend, which’ll have me a bit busy.
That’s all the news I have for you this time. Be sure to check this post periodically for additional series pickups, and as always, thank you for reading.
