Saekano - 00 (How to Train the Ordinary Girl to be a Heroine)
Story: "A highschool otaku named Aki Tomoya runs into his dream girl one day... only to find that she has the faintest presence to his chagrin! Now with his otaku passions, Tomoya wants to turn the girl into a heroine in the only realm he is familiar with: 2D dating simulation game. To accomplish this objective, he scouts Eriri Spencer Sawamura, his half-foreigner childhood friend equipped with artistic talent, as the illustrator, and Kasumigaoka Utaha, a famous prodigy writer, as the script writer."
Genre: From lofty dreams to humble reality.
Comments: Looking good.
It's a tough job to make the girl you like to become your super-heroine, when she is not interested in the slightest, and all the other girls are better choices.
This a job for... super-otaku!
Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu Love 01 (Cute High Earth Defense Club Love)
"This is the tale of five unlikely heroes who unite under the name of the "Earth Defense Club" alongside a pink wombat-like alien to defend their world and restore love to all; however, does a sinister organization lurk behind the scenes of Binan High school?"
Spazzy magical boys defending the earthlings' food chain, assisted by a non-terrestrial wombat. Is the final boss an anti-nutrition alien porcupine?
Yuri Kuma Arashi 01 (Lily Bear Storm)
"Long ago, a far-off planet known as Kumaria exploded, turning into a meteor shower that fell upon earth. This lead to the bears becoming violent and attacking the humans, who created a wall between them and the bears. Several years later, two bears, Ginko Yurishiro and Lulu Yurigasaki, disguise themselves as humans and enroll in Arashigaoka Academy, where Ginko takes interest in a human girl named Kureha Tsubaki."
Symbolism, symbolism everywhere. And metaphor and circuity and analogies. With syntactic overtones, of course.
For the fans.
Death Parade - 01
"Somewhere is a mysterious bar known as the Queen Dequim, where a lone bartender named Dequim works. Whenever two people emerge from the bar's elevators, those two must participate in a Death Game with their lives on the line, the results of which will reveal what secrets led them there and what their fate will be afterwards."
Slice of between-lives.
Ah, that reminds me of Death_Billiards. Yes, same cast. And the fates were ambiguous.
But here, the fates are clear-cut. Oh wait, "void"? That makes no sense. Translation error? Hmmm... I think I hear "Kannon". And Kannon is the buddhist deity of mercy. So one of them was forgiven? Not sure.
Next episode, please!
Seiken Tsukai no World Break - 01 (Aria of Curse for a Holy Swordsman)
The story is set in a school that brings together "saviors," youths with awakened memories from past lives. Some of them fight with the powers of their own bodies. Others fight with magical powers surpassing physics. A boy named Moroha Haimura enrolls in this school. He is the first person in history with past lives of both powers.
Savior justice warriors.
If they are awakened, they should recall having gone to school lives after lives after lives.
No wonder they fall asleep the first day already, they are repeaters.
The final exams should be given on the very first day, and the flunkees only given remedial classes.
- Sub absolute zero reviews -
Absolute Duo 01: The usual Magical_Academy marinade of the season. Nap time.
Shinmai Maou no Testament 01: Demon-queen/Human-hero story variant.
Kantai Collection 01: Total newbie ship does an Abyssal boss raid head on, wins against all odds and marries the admiral, all in a day. Easy modo.
Sengoku Musou 01: Animated slash video game based on the Warring States. My warlord can beat your warlord, gnap-gnap!
Koufuku Graffiti 01: Slice of cooking life. Food anime.
Unlimited Fafnir 01: Magical_Academy clone. Can one guy alone save his V(alor) in a maelstrom of girls who want the D(ragon)?
Maria the Virgin Witch 01: Slice of witches' life during the Hundred Years' War. Prolly more accurate than history books, which were rewritten by the victors anyway.
The Rolling Girls - 01-02
"Ten years after the Great TokyoWar, each prefecture in Japan has split up into independent nations. Each nation is ruled by a prophet called "Mosa" and an army called "Mob" as they start to compete to take over other countries. Four "Mob" girls from the Saitama clan, Nozomi, Yukina, Ai, and Chiaya, are ordered by their "Mosa" to travel around Japan riding their motorcycles to mediate multiple battles between nations and clans as they emerge."
Magical idol peacekeepers fights.
I watched two episodes and I still don't know what is going on.
Oh well, let's take a ride on the wild side.
Yoru no Yatterman - 01-02: (Yatterman of the Night)
"A long time ago, the Yattermen were heroes of justice who fought against the evil Doronbow Gang, exiling them and bringing peace to the Yatter Kingdom. Several generations later, however, the Yattermen have since become corrupt with power while everyone else has been forced to live in poverty and despair. After losing her mother to the Yattermen's selfishness, Leopard, a direct descendant of the gang's leader Doronjo, reforms the Doronbow Gang with Boyacky and Tonzra's descendants, Voltkatze and Elephantus, to rebel against the corrupt Yattermen."
Good versus Evil.
It seems that the Yattermen have been reborn as Doronbows to readjust the imbalances created by the passage of time. Were the Doronbows reincarnated as Yattermen too?
Assassination Classroom 01-02:
"One day, the moon exploded, leaving it in a perpetual crescent-moon shape. The creature who claims responsibility for the destruction also claims it will destroy the world in March of next year. With powers beyond human comprehension, no military can stand against it. Yet, for some reason, it chooses to take up occupancy as a teacher in the worst class of Kunugigaoka Middle School. The fate of the world rests in the hands of its students, as they have until graduation to figure out how to murder their teacher and collect ten billion yen for saving the world."
Teaching is fun.
The moon got blown, but the supposed culprit - the teacher - doesn't fit the bill.
My guess is that some researcher found an ancient super-lifeform by accident, and it blew the super-prison that was holding him in and that a section of the moon got blown as result. The lifeform wants to pay his debt back to his liberator (who probably died afterwards), and so agreed to teach for a year the worst students on Earth, the End Class.
Could be fun.
Maria and Yuri Kuma seem the most promising.
It's almost September. What are you going to pick up next season? I'm very excited for the baseball anime
【Next's season chart】 http://i4.minus.com/ibpdy6o55LnlmA.jpg
I'm picking up:
Kill la Kill
Pupa looks interesting
Non Non Biyori is very good.
When the hell are pupa, Lupin and Neppu going to air? I've almost forgotten about them
wow I'm stupid
Lupin will air on 15th November, Neppu will air this winter and pupa this fall but I'm not sure when
You know, overall I think it was a good season.

The mod is a lie.
I want to watch that "cute girls eating food" show from SHAFT.
Cross Ange is pretty nice.
we have just started a new non-profit anime video site to benefit childhood cancer research:
Interesting. Audio encoding is pretty terrible, but video is definitely watchable.
I honestly could not understand Team4Mars without the subtitles on the film itself, but I really would not mind a dub with Ken Watanabe's voice. Then again, I always watch sub where possible, so my opinion isn't worth much.
real good cean! real good cean!
what is cool SHIRATAMA-KUN!
I LOVE YOU!!
I LOVE YOU!!!!
SHIRATAMA-KUN is very COOL&CUTE!!
onepiece is boring the most...zzz
but i have a sense kids are attracted to it.
Xi Jinping : I am going to be the king of pirates!
I never have the motivation to watch anime. I enjoy watching it, but it feels like a chore, especially when I think of all those 50+ episode series I have yet to watch.
Does anyone else feel this way?
Japanese, but I also know that feeling
that happens to me sometimes. you should try to force yourself seeing them. in the end you will get a strange but cool feel of nostalgia.
Just watch a long running anime. I watched One Piece when it happened to me 'cause it was a simple shounen that could give me some nostalgia feel. Really helped.
Yes, I'm feeling that today. Fortunately I already watched two episodes that I had to.
I have that all the time. The worst is before the watching, the putting yourself to it. Once you're in you're in for a hour at least. I gotta watch some more anime and read more manga soon
I frequently find myself in the same situation. The worst part is that I know that so many of the series on my backlog would be really amusing or interesting if I could just get around to watching them, or just as bad: that so many shows on my backlog are just going to be average and that I'll feel compelled to watch them anyway since they've been on my backlog for so long.
I like Wakfu, but it's on at 7:30am weekdays so some days i miss an ep due to not waking up early enough ^^
And they play sooo many ads =.
yeah. . .
please answer question. . .
A Japanese slang term (ironically, first employed by otaku) used to refer to the fetish for or sexual attraction to idealized people, usually a fictional perfect young girl.
Since then, moé has come to be used as a general term for a hobby, mania or fetish (non-sexual or otherwise). This is contrasted with otaku, which would be taking the specific hobby, mania or fetish to harmful levels.
clumbsy with long hair and big breasts (extra points if they wear glasses)
they're typically really shy
I think of Miyuki or Mikuru usually
Moe, is a thing that turns guys into pedos
Buddy Complex - 01
Story: "On the first day back after summer break, high-school student Aoba is attacked by a giant robot that appears out of the sky. As he's pursued through the city, his classmate Hina appears in a robot of her own. She rescues him, and tells him cryptically that "Dio is waiting for you," before she disappears. This begins Aoba's new life as the pilot of the Free Treaty Alliance against the Great Zogiria Republic."
Genre: Giant robots wars.
Comments: Single linear timeline hypothesis? Looks like sci-fi from the 60ties.
The characters also look somewhat retro.
From an old manga? Mmh... No, supposedly it's an original creation.
Let me see what happens after the time jump.
- Mincing reviews -
Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji 01: weak M_girl meets weak S_boy, dipped in weak shojo sauce. A wolf who cried woof.
Grisaia no Kajitsu 01: Huge empty school, with only 1 guy + 5 girls. No wonder that world is so barren if they are all hitmen/women.
World Trigger 01: Living near a dimensional vortex is bad, but the local school bullies are even worse. What, fighto? Yeah, yeah.
Sora no Method 01: Friends and aliens reunited after a long time apart. Time to shed a tear, or two.
- Boy-meets-boy reviews -
Donten ni Warau 01: Law-enforcer brothers, under the ominous shadow of a nasty prison in the Meiji old days. So bloody bromantic!
Orenchi no Furo Jijou 01: Manly man meets fabulous merman. Bathtub-sharing BL.
Kaitou Joker 01: Phantom thief, with a ninja doing the cooking. Kid stuff.
Inou Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de - 01 (When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace)
"Six months ago, the five-member literature club all awakened superpowers. Unfortunately this has not led to them having anything else interesting happen in their lives, like epic battles or saving the universe. They go about their ordinary lives, just happening to have superpowers, waiting for the call to battle to finally happen - assuming it ever comes at all."
Chuuni club activities.
Ah, this one has good potential.
The first episode was weak ("This universe originated 13.7 billions years ago"? Not even wrong.), but I have great hope. Let's see how it develops.
- Hankering reviews -
Gugure! Kokkuri-san 01: Playful male silver-haired magical fox? Lonely shut-in girl? Wishful shojo, with a large dose of acid humor.
Trinity Seven 01: Rounding up the usual suspects, one smart alec and his seven witches. At the local magic school, of course.
Akatsuki no Yona 01 + Cross Ange 01: Pampered princess. Rotting kingdom. Coup d'etat. Time for a gruesome reality check and... a tomboy haircut!
- Boldly galumphing reviews -
Hi-sCoool! SeHa Girl 01: Sega showroom, reusing old 3DCG moves.
Garo 01: Witch-hunters are demons eating people and shapeshifting into their human forms. Medieval fantasy... or is it?
Parasyte 01: Guy gets a morphing lifeform into his hand instead of his brain. Resigned, the parasite morphs into a symbiote.
Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai 01: Bookworm is not interested in girls, only books. Alas, this is from an erogame, so... But don't worry, there will be no sex scenes!
Nanatsu no Taizai 01: Goku/Meliodas and Bulma/Elizabeth begin their search for the 7 dragonballs/Taizai. Similar artstyle, too.
- Heavy weights reviews -
Amagi Brilliant Park 01: The usual high-quality KyoAni cocktail of same-characters, with no satisfying endings.
Shingeki no Bahamut 01: Card game adaptation, with a generous budget.
- I_Have_No_Mouth,_and_I_Must_Scream reviews -
Ore Twintail ni Narimasu 01: The world is under great danger, from the invasion of the twintails-stealer aliens! ...Eh, what?
Shirobako 01: How to make an anime: with Initial-D road-racing rage, and lots of donuts!
Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso 01: When bullied piano-man meets violin-girl, world became colored again. But when she bullies him, the colors don't fade. Is love a good bully?
- Jejune reviews -
Girl Friend Beta 01: A promo for some dating-sim? The girls were speaking sooo slooowly, I thought it was a practice-your-Japanese lesson. Beta indeed.
Yuki Yuna wa Yusha de Aru - 01:
"Yuna, Mimori, Fu, and Itsuki are all members of the Sanshu Middle School Hero Club, dedicating themselves to helping those that requested. One day, they are suddenly caught in a ray of light and transported to a strange forest, where evil monsters known as Vertex are seeking to destroy Shinju-sama, which would in turn destroy the world. Using a special app to transform into magical girls, Yuna and the others must now become true heroes in order to protect their world."
Magical girls saving the world app.
Wait, if the whole classroom is in zero-time, the heroes shouldn't be able to move either. Unless there was an EM Field around them. Generated by that cellphone's app they all had to download earlier? But then, when they move around, the cell should reactivate the ones who are near the field, like in The_Legend_of_Zelda:_Skyward_Sword. Unless, the app is shaping the EMF to only follow the owner of the cell?
Fancy. Ok, where can I download it?
What do you think, guys?
I don't like the changes in art and the music kinda sucks too.
The lipstick is weird
How can I contact the moderator of this site to report abuse and illegal activity? Thanks!
I agree. Everything looks weird. I'm always seeing people outside of 4chan posting about it and talking about how cool Sailor Moon Crystal is, but I really don't get it. I think it's some combination of retro+"lol i'm such a nerd, right??".
