Descriptions are from anichart.net. These are little descriptions and my opinions on soon to be airing anime I will try to watch this season. It seems like a lot of this season’s animes are adapted from video games, which is strange to me. Like last season, there wasn’t a ton of series that I was super excited for or interested in watching. Anyways, here are the six I chose to watch for this season, in alphabetical order.
Chaos Child: Sci-fi
“In the original visual novel, after a magnitude-7.8 earthquake hits Tokyo’s Shibuya ward on November 6, 2009, a black fire spreads and causes mass panic on the day of the earthquake. The sudden disaster that becomes known as the “Shibuya Earthquake” kills 3,851 people and injures 30,927 more. The game is set in a reconstructed Shibuya district in October 2015. A string of mysterious deaths occurs in Shibuya amidst the reconstruction. People begin to take notice as the strange events start on the same day that chaos broke out in Shibuya with a certain incident five years earlier. The events are called the “Return of the New Generation Madness.”
I’m not really sure what this anime will be about, but I’m interested enough to give it a shot.
Gabriel Dropout: Comedy, Supernatural
“The comedy follows Gabriel White, who graduated at the top of the class at angel school and attends a human school on earth in pursuit of knowledge, but then gets engrossed in a web game and decides it’s too much trouble to go anywhere.”
I think this anime will be cute and funny even if it may not have a lot of plot.
Fuuka: Comedy, Romance, Music
“The story centers on a young man named Yuu Haruna who has just switched schools. He’s a bit shy, and he’s constantly glued to his smartphone so he can check Twitter. He meets a girl named Fuuka Akitsuki, who doesn’t even have a cell phone, is free-spirited, and naturally fascinates others. Yuu recently has been getting back in touch via Twitter with his childhood friend Koyuki Hinashi, who is now a popular singer. One day Yuu invites Fuuka to one of Koyuki’s concerts, and there the three meet for the first time. The story follows the love triangle between a love that started through electronics, and a love that didn’t start through electronics.”
I’m not normally one for love triangles, so I’m not sure how I’ll feel about this one. I’m going to give it the three episode test to see.
Hand Shakers: Fantasy?
“They, the receivers of the Revelation of Babel. They, the challengers to God. They, who inevitably throw themselves into battle with their partners. What does God want from them? And did they want powers exceeding that of Gods? The chosen ones, their souls linked, join hands and head for the Ziggurat where the fighting shall ensue.”
There wasn’t much to go on with this description, there wasn’t even a genre listed. I’m going into this blind but I’ll see if it’s something I’m interested in.
Little Witch Academia: Fantasy, Adventure, Comedy
“For young witches everywhere, the world-renowned witch Shiny Chariot reigns as the most revered and celebrated role model. But as the girls age, so do their opinions of her—now just the mention of Chariot would get a witch labeled a child. However, undeterred in her blind admiration for Chariot, ordinary girl Atsuko Kagari enrolls into Luna Nova Magical Academy, hoping to someday become just as mesmerizing as her idol.
However, the witch academy isn’t all the fun and games Atsuko thought it would be: boring lectures, strict teachers, and students who mock Chariot plague the campus. Coupled with her own ineptness in magic, she’s seen as little more than a rebel student. But when a chance finally presents itself to prove herself to her peers and teachers, she takes it, and now it’s up to her to stop a rampaging dragon before it flattens the entire academy.”
I saw the two mini episodes of this show on Netflix and I enjoyed them, so I’m excited for this series. I think it will be cute and funny.
Kuzu no Honkai: Drama, Romance
Hanabi and Mugi are bathed in envious gazers from all around as a beautiful couple with excellent moral conduct. But these two apparently perfect people in an apparently perfect relationship share a secret they can’t tell anyone.
This one intrigued me since I’m the kind of person who can’t not know things (oh that awful double negative). I’ll watch this since it’s different than most romance animes in that the two main characters are already in a relationship.
Others I’m considering: Demi-chan wa Kataritai, Kobayashi-san Chi no Maidragon, Masamune-kun no Revenge, Urara Meirocohu
Let me know what you’re looking forward to!
