You’ve seen the fall preview, so now it’s time to tell you what we plan to cover for the coming season. This is Random Curiosity’s Fall 2013 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.

Fall 2022 Preview

Ahh autumn, truly the season of change. As hot snaps and long summer days give way to changing leaves, colder weather, and the always ubiquitous combo of Uggs and pumpkin spice lattes (god help us all) so to do things change in anime. Change for the ridiculously good. This fall is probably the first overloaded and hype-worthy season in a long time, as not only are we getting major heavy hitting sequel heaven with the likes of Spy x Family, Boku no Hero Academia, Golden Kamuy, and BLEACH, but also receiving some hotly anticipated adaptations and originals in Chainsaw Man, Mobile Suit Gundam Suisei no Majo, Urusei Yatsura, and Legend of Mana. Those names alone not tickling the fancy? Then try on Hamefura successor Akuyaku Reijou, comedic isekai Kage no Jitsuryoku ni Naritakute, Chinese historical Koukyuu no Karasu, and foreign-influenced romcom Renai Flops for size. And hey, if you still have time after all that anime (watch out for stomach aches) don’t forget about round two of the adorably annoying Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai, the man as isekai’d sword in Tensei Shitara Ken Deshita, the 90s maid apocalypse in Akiba Maid Sensou, and latest season in the never boring Mob Psycho 100.

The world may be a dark and dreary place right now, but anime this season is certainly here in spades to help us over the hump and keep us enjoying life. This is Random Curiosity’s Fall 2022 Preview!

Fall 2017 Preview!

With the temperature dropping (finally), it can only mean one thing: it’s time for the fall season of anime! And when a new season starts, it can only mean one thing: it’s time for Random Curiosity’s Fall 2017 Preview! The preview that tries its best to find the gems of the season while giving you ample information to make an informed decision on what to spend your valuable time on. This season is chock full of sequels as well as your typical fare of 4-komas, romances, idol shows, and romcoms. And if you thought I was joking about sequels (or continuations, I don’t discriminate), we have Love Live! Sunshine!! Season 2, 3-gatsu no Lion 2nd Season, Osomatsu-san 2, and Himouto! Umaru-chan R just to name a few. Alongside all of those we also have an adaptation of a prequel (and sequel) to the popular “hero” show Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru, an adorable slice-of-life that combines anime-tropes with maid cafes in Blend S, a painfully accurate description of a point in time most if not all online gamers experience in Netojuu no Susume, and last but not least the return of our guilty pleasure cooking show Shokugeki no Souma: San no Sara. Overall, not too shabby of a season, even if it is a little heavy on the sequels.

Fall 2016 Preview!

Autumn winds are coming, there’s a potentially life-changing election around the corner, and 2016 has proved itself to be a thoroughly bizarre year. But amidst the madness we still have a new season of anime to bring us together, so there’s something to celebrate about! The past few seasons have been varied in genre and source material, and this is much the same. We’ve got a bundle of anime originals, with the WWII-inspired Shuumatsu no Izetta sure to make a strong impression, Classicaloid is bringing Mozart and Beethoven together in a colourful comedy, Flip Flappers looks to be a magical girl show with a bundle of creative talent behind it, and the misleadingly titled Yuri!!! on Ice has a lot to live up to. The Hellsing author’s latest manga, Drifters, is getting an adaptation, and the Occultic;Nine light-novels by the Steins;Gate author are also coming to our screens. There’s also a selection of prestige and award-winning material getting TV anime, with the popular novel and live-action film building expectations for Fune wo Amu, 3-gatsu no Lion is getting adapted by none other than Shaft, and the beloved Natsume Yuujinchou is returning for it’s fifth season. Speaking of sequels, we’ve got plenty: the Brave Witches spin-off is sure to satisfy Strike Witches fans, Haikyuu!!’s third season is set to cover the most important match yet, Kyoto Animation are blessing us with the sound of Hibike! Euphonium 2, and we even got a surprise spin-off announcement in WWW.WORKING!!. It’s a large and varied season that’s sure to offer something for everybody. This is Random Curiosity’s Fall 2016 Preview!
