Well, here we are again.
Looking forward to Chihayafuru s2, but nothing else looks particularly interesting. Not that Fall 2012 is an easy to follow anyway.

What are you looking forward to, /bun/?

Wow, it's fucking nothing. At least Jojo will still be going.
>> No.43686  
I have to admit, I burst out laughing when I saw the picture of a trainwreck for "Train Hero".

Yeah, only Chihayafuru S2 has me interested. I'll follow Haganai NEXT and Da Capo 3 only because they are 'sequels' to anime I've watched (I'm aware that DC3 can hardly be called a sequel, but well, you know).
>> No.43689

I'll probably watch Sasami-san, AKB0048, Senren Kagura, Puchimas, Youkai Watch, and Minami Ke.
>> No.43693  
Maoyuu Maou Yuusha was recommended to me here some time ago, as I loved the economics aspects of Spice and Wolf and MMY is apparently similar, so I'm looking forward to that.

Other than that, "wow, it's fucking nothing" is a good way to describe it. Wonder if it's just a matter of it being too early to make any sort of judgment or whether we are really getting a legendarily bad season after the wonderful past year.
>> No.43694  
>VIVID RED OPERATION
The next installment of sky girls, strike witches, etc.

If there is the same level of improvement in this new anime as there was from sky girls to strike witches, this will outsell nisemonogatari. That said, it's most likely going to be strike witches with a new theme and new VAs to go with it. WWII is old and busted anyway, modern warfare is getting stale, so the stage is set for the SCI-FI FUTURE new hotness.

>Senren Kagura
>Touhou Ibun
>Cuticle Inaba
>Maoyuu Maou Yuusha
>Kotura

fanservice shit. will watch if subbed

>Train Hero
>Bakumatsu Roman

Interesting Tales, with twists and turns, complex stories, and filled with interesting, unique characters. These shows are going to bomb like none other, and even knowing that will happen, I will still die inside watching their sales stay solidly below the manami line.

>Amnesia
Like the game, only with a female protag, and the hideous monsters have personalities and uniquely colored wigs to differentiate them. After the trauma from that shinsengumi reverse harem shojo a while back, I don't think I've recovered enough to try watching another reverse harem shojo for another while.

>Yama no YURI

It's been a while since a good yuri anime aired. Hopefully it doesn't suck.

>Ai Mai mi

4 cute girls doing cute things in highschool, with the twist that they are mangaka otaku, and the story will go full retarded like that anime with the cat and the life-sized wind up robot and the loli professor when the cast runs out of manga jokes. I'll probably watch the first couple mins as I'll forget the name of the shit by the time it airs before deleting it and removing it from my mental list of shows I'll be keeping up with.

Ok, Sasami-san because SHAFT, Senran Kagura because I want to see if it's terrible. I just picked it because there was so little on the list. Petitmas because I like Idolm@ster. I meant more along the lines of people who follow almost nothing but cute girls shows, and get all kawaii and involved and shit.

I hope I'm not the only one here who was thoroughly disappointed when she did your pic related. I was hoping for a favorite bishoujo where I could her horns, but for them to be tossed aside and forgotten at the end of the episode was just mean.

I mean, sure, the pic of the headpieces was very symbolic in how they were going to leave their jrpg stereotypes behind and start on an epic quest to save both worlds and do a bit of now and then, here and there soul searching in whether ending the war is actually the right thing to do, as well as dealing with the hatred spiral that has grown into a tangible beast with all the slaughtering and killing on both sides..... and I know the OP didn't once show her with her horns so I really should've seen that one coming, but damn it I was really looking forward to a favorite bishoujo character that I could really her horns.

I went into Mondaiji tachi ga Isekai kara Kuru soudesuyo?/Problem children are coming from another world, aren't they? (seriously, is there no shorter name for it?) having no idea whatsoever what to expect from this series. Haven't read any summary, haven't watched any trailers, not familiar with the studio, I just tried it without any expectations.

And it was awesome. Not just as in 'it was really good', the entire episode was just a strange semi-incomprehensible sequence of awesome moments one after another.

I still have no idea whatsoever what to expect from this series, though I'm pretty sure it'll be awesome.

I'm a little torn on Sasami. It has a pretty look to it, and the first episode had some good moments.

Sasami tried too hard.
I know it is adapted from a LN but it felt like they are putting it whatever fad of the week that are popular at moment into it.
Sure I dig the artstyle but goddamm it feels messy and not enjoyable. This is pretty funny since I actually like Haruhi a lots.

On the other hand, this low budget show with zero hype came out of nowhere and grabbed my attention. Too early to call it best show of the season though. Lets hope it doesnt end up like anohana with a godly first ep but mediocrity the rest of the way.

From my perspective Shaft just does the same stuff other studios do but with Shinbou's artsy directing and more-apparent self-awareness. I say "more-apparent" because I think many, probably most, studios have self-awareness about the cliches etc. they employ but they aren't as blatant about it as Shaft. I don't feel there is any willful commentary in Shaft's works, and if there is it's shallow and not anything meaningful.

That said, I enjoy most Shaft shows, and some I've enjoyed a lot. I'll even admit I loved the fuck out of Nisemonogatari (Bakemonogatari not as much), which seems to be the Shaft show that gets the most flak recently. I liked the first episode of Sasami for its bizarreness and hope it will keep it up.

3rd episode opinions time?

Amnesia
Based on an otome game, in case that wasn't obvious from the plethora of guys wrapped up in belts and collars. That being said, it's got a fairly broadly appealing story of the protagonist trying to put her memories back together after some sort of accident. Mysteries abound, and there seems to be some sort of world shift where the people close to her remain the same in appearance, but take on different roles and personalities, and events that she does remember occurring are remembered as occurring in a slightly different manner than the rest of the world. The show makes a good use of awkward silence, especially in episode 3 where fairy boy is absent. It looks like he's coming back next episode though. I guess it's his role as the comic relief character, but I'd rather him just shut up 90% of the time. Anyways, I'm still not really sure what's going on in this series, but the mystery is part of the appeal.

Love Live
Girls form an idol group to save their school from being shut down. Being an idol show, it naturally has the 3DCG dance sequences, which are looking better and better these days. It's rather unfortunate that this aired in the season after Girls und Panzer, as they have basically the same plot, but it's with idols instead of tanks and just isn't quite as awesome. However, it's been a solid "girls giving their best" show so far.

Sasami-san@Ganbaranai
A NEET and her brother/manservant with the power of Amaterasu, along with three sisters who kick the other gods back into line when they mess up the world to make the holder of Amaterasu's power happy. This started off pretty weak, but episode 3 finally got the ball rolling. The art is gorgeous, and it does NEET life fairly well. I'm still not sure where the story is going, but it's at least looking promising now.

Maoyuu
The demon king (queen?) and hero form a secret (love?) alliance and go off to spread the wonders of modern agricultural science to the medieval world. Opposite of Sasami, this started out looking promising, but has every indication of turning into a teenage romance harem. There's still some science and politics that is a little reminiscent of Spice & Wolf, but the demon king is rapidly established as the "hehehe we held hands how romantic! and Oh, hero, i-if you'd like...y-you can lay your head in my lap" ditzy romantic. The hero soon manages to pull the female knight who used to fight with him into living with him, and it looks like his next goal is to bring his female mage to do so as well. Although it's possible the series could get back on track, I expect it to end up at 50%+ harem antics.

Vividred Operation
The latest installment of cute girls using experimental military technology to defend the earth from monsters. Now with hot pants and docking! I'm not going to try and claim that this is some sort of groundbreaking work of art, but it's delivered everything that I wanted from it so far.

Kotoura-san
A more realistic take on what living with ESP would be like. The description of this series in the calendar doesn't do it justice. I hadn't even intended on watching this originally, but after reading some of y'all's initial reviews, I had to give it go. Oh god, poor Kotoura. She hears all the horrible things that people think about, and it absolutely destroys her life and the lives of everyone that she comes into close contact with. Three episodes in, and the brutal onslaught has yet to stop. I just hope she eventually comes out of this all right ;_;

Am I the only one who really disliked ep1, and liked ep2 and ep3 much better? Ep1 was pretty much all fanservice and setup for romantic comedy, and had practically none of the economics/running a country stuff we were promised, which ep2 and ep3 did deliver. (Haven't watched ep4 yet.)

Well, it did a pretty good job of NEET life while she was still a NEET. You know, sitting around and playing video games, doing online shopping, browsing message boards, etc., as opposed to running a detective agency or starting an internet business or something as some shows have been doing lately.

I'd assume they'll stop referring to Sasami as a NEET now that she's rejoining society, although I guess we don't have any definitive evidence until episode 4 is out.

Yes. It got some attention because of the ridiculously overblown suffering in the first episode, but since then its just been shitty generic anime.
Manabe is slightly different from the usual male lead and Kanemoto's voice is good for penis, but other than that it's really not worth watching.

I don't think this series was good enough to warrant an episode-long poignant goodbye. It wasn't terrible but I don't think you could call it particularly great either; it was just plain average and I wish Japan would stop trying to add emotional impact and serious drama elements to these easy-going comedy shows, especially when Shion is the best girl.

You don't seem to understand... to the people chosen by god, being forced to live among the gentiles IS their hell.

just imagine their father's face when he finds out both his daughters fell head over heels with a pure blooded samurai warrior from nippon.

one of these does not belong.
Similar to other brown ethnicities, like brazilians, chinese, and those of the middle east, the black hair and eyes of the japanese are incredibly dominant genes. Only if their mother was half japanese half white would there be a possibility for the daughters to even have a slim chance of getting those traits.
>> No.45161

It's anime. Hair and eye color are completely irrespective of any sort of actual genetics. Not to mention that neither blonde hair nor blue eyes are Jewish traits anyways, so even if you're assuming that genetics applies here and they are 100% Jewish, it doesn't make sense for them to look like that.

Isn't that for the best though? I mean, short of sending them to a nunnery or an all girls school and hoping they go full yuri, any father has to accept at some point that his daughters are going to get dicked. Might as well be the smallest dick possible, right? For minimum penetration and thus minimum defilement?

Amnesia
It was a decent show with a weak ending. Milquetoast protagonist girl has lost her memory and gets thrown through parallel dimensions where she keeps reliving the beginning of August. The world around her is mostly the same, but her relationships with people are always a little different. In each new world, one of the characters becomes her fabulously handsome boyfriend who wants nothing more than to make her happy (it's almost like this was based on an otome game or something), and then she dies some horrible death and gets sent to the next world. In the end there's some weird deus ex machina scene where the fairy king congratulates her on being a good girl and lets her go back to her original world, and there's the implication that she gets to choose which ever guy she wants. They totally cop out and end the series before she picks one, even though it's obvious she's going back to the abusive guy (but he's a really nice guy on the inside!)
The outfits that the characters wear are a bit ridiculous, but they're very distinct and one of the more notable points of the show. The other thing this series does well is silence. The protagonist isn't a real talkative person, and there's lots of awkward moments where she's just standing there with no idea what to say.

Kotoura-san
Great start, gets a bit weak in the second-to-last arc, but recovers for a good ending. Overall, I'd call it a well done retake on the "girl with supernatural power" story. Our psychic protagonist has destroyed her family and alienated everyone around her with her ability to read minds and lack of tact in doing so. However, after transferring schools, she meets Manabe, the hopeless lecher who doesn't care if she can read his mind, and gets drawn into the ESP club, the leader of which is trying to use her to prove the existence of supernatural abilities. Can she maintain her new friends, or will she end up destroying their lives too?
The series as a whole was good, but the arc where they go all Scooby Doo and try to catch the perpetrator who is attacking high school girls didn't even make sense. How was the president going to prove the existence of psychic powers if they were luring the assailant into attacking anyways? Wouldn't catching them in the act eliminate any need of psychic powers to determine their identity?

Love Live!
A very solid idol/school girls trying their best show. The Otonokizaka Academy is going to be phased out of operation unless they are able to attract a high enrollment next year. In order to save their school, three girls get together to form a school idol group with ambitions of entering Love Live!, the national school idol championship. They face various challenges in their attempts to get more members and form an official student organization so they can get a club room, but they eventually get things going and draw a total of 9 girls.
The series is full of singing and dancing and ambitions and high school life. The characters themselves are actually kind of bland, with the sole exception of Nico, the pissy 3rd year who really wanted to be a school idol but got abandoned by everyone else in her club and has spent the last year stewing inside the clubroom, only to see a bunch of upstarts without the first idea of what it takes to be an idol trying to get together their own group. Nico's mild narcissism and insistence of remaining the official leader of the club, despite not really having the personality for it, make the show truly enjoyable to watch.

Sasami-san@Ganbaranai
Overall, I'd call it a decent series. Sasami wants to live the easy life and not be bothered by people, but she also wants to have friends. She begins the series with the power of Amaterasu and gets in wacky adventures either brought about by the power she holds or caused by other gods. There isn't a whole lot of plot continuity between the arcs, some of which are enjoyable, others of which are kind of dumb. In general, the series tends to spend too much time pandering to the otaku/NEET crowd at the expense of content. They built up Sasami's brother as being a character of some importance, but in the end they never actually explained who he was. We did finally get to see his face at least. Based on that, I'm going with him being King Munto until someone comes up with something better. There's also not much resolution on what happened with Sasami's mom.
That being said, the artwork is nice and the opening theme is catchy. The arcs centering around Sasami's conflict with her family are all well done, and the Kagami arc was pretty enjoyable too. It's not what I'd call an amazing series, but it's not terrible either.

Senyuu reminded me of Gag Manga Biyori some, in the dialogue delivery at least, though it wasn't as funny.

Yeah, I've never really cared for short anime, but there are some really interesting ones among the trash. I think it's the short format that allows Gdgd to shine. The show actually bombs frequently, but it only dwells for a couple seconds on each gag before it moves on to the next one. The way it used referential humor also surprised me. I've always looked at reference jokes as very lazy comedy, but Gdgd fairies use them in an incredibly creative way. My favourite thing about the show though, is how unpredictable it is. While there are specific 'corners' to the show, similar to a Japanese variety show, you never know what you're going to get with each episode and I wish the anime industry would do more stuff like this, instead of cranking out shameless 4koma adaptions.

By the way, after I finished Gdgd fairies I checked around if there were any shows similar to it, and I found two more.
Straight Title Robot Anime is partially ad-libbed in a way similar to Gdgd Fairies, but I honestly found it kinda boring.
Peeping Life is a series of completely ad-libbed sketches. The sketches are a lot slower, longer and much more grounded in reality than Gdgd, but I thought it was pretty funny.

There are good and bad short shows, but I always feel good when watching them because amateur studios seem to have fresh ideas and style. Ai Mai Mi, Teekyuu, Boku no Imouto wa Osaka-okan, Senyuu. are all pretty fresh, although probably not for everyone.

I thought Teekyuu was great, Osaka-momma and Mangirl were horribad (though their titles make them sound kinda cool) and I also watched Ishida and Asakura and it was absolute shit. I've yet to watch Senyuu.
Imo, there's a much larger fluctuation in quality for short shows, and also a lower good to bad ratio, but on the flipside, each episode lasts from 30 seconds to 10 minutes so it's not like you're committing to anything.
