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.

ImoCho - 01
"A girl named Mitsuki Kanzaki lives with her step-brother Yuya after her mother remarries. One day, Mitsuki is possessed by the self-proclaimed spirit of a young girl, Hiyori Kotobuki. Hiyori (in Mitsuki's body) must fall in love with Yuya to move toward the "Gates of Heaven.""

Toilet humor erotic comedy.

Possession by naughty spirit? A sexorcist is badly needed here, it seems. Maybe that girl with the esoteric book can do something?

Noragami - 01 ("Stray gods")
Yato is a minor deity who lacks even a single shrine. In order to build his own shrine, he scrawls his cell number on the wall of a downtown bathroom telling people he will help them in exchange for a 5-yen offering, becoming a self-styled "delivery god." Hiyori, the daughter of a respectable family, is almost in a traffic accident, but is rescued by Yato. This causes her to become a "hanyou," a soul who can easily lose her body. She chases Yato down, and they begin to work together.

Wannabe-deity searching for something useful to do.

The out-of-body experience when she learns how to kick reminds me of "Ghost" with Patrick Swayze, very nice. Her silver cord lifeline looking like a cat's tail is also a nice touch.
But something is not clear: can other humans see Yato too, or is it only her?

Instant reviews:
Space Dandy 01: goofy space aliens' hunter, who dies at the end of the episode. Or not?
Nobunaga the Fool 01: heroic heroes mashed mish-mash. Go easy with the dope, ok?
Tonari no Seki-kun 01: how to waste time at school. A time-waster?

5 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-01-06 18:50 ID:krb947hr

Nobunagun - 01
"Shio Ogura is a Japanese high school student, who is visiting Taiwan on a school trip when she is suddenly attacked by monsters. Agents known as "E-Gene Holders" from the government agency DOGOO also arrive, who wield weapons infused with the spirits of historical figures. Shio is revealed to also be an E-Gene Holder when the soul of Oda Nobunaga awakens after she tries to rescue a friend."

Shoot 'em-up.

Using only two DNA strands? How normal.
OTOH her partner in wanton destruction is Jack-the-Ripper, so I guess I shouldn't expect diplomacy being used here to solve conflicts peacefully.

The Pilot's Love Song - 01
"The story of love and aerial combat follows a former prince who lost everything to a revolution, and a girl who became the symbol for the revolution. The orphaned prince, now renamed Kal-el, embarks on a one-way journey to discover the ends of the heavens. Aboard the levitating island of Isura, he meets a girl named Claire."

Flying islands and planes and bikes and stuff.

Wait, if there was a revolution, how come there is still a nobility caste system, scorning others?
That big flying armored airship doesn't make sense how it could be airborne... Is the nobility class based upon antigravity/magic secrets? And why are they so overbearing? To prevent the secrets to come in the open?

7 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-01-07 03:00 ID:krb947hr

Witch Craft Works - 01
"Takamiya Honoka is an average student with no real talents or special abilities. In class, he sits next to Kagari Ayaka, the "Princess" of the school. The two never talk to each other and any interaction with her results in him being attacked by her fan club. However, when Takamiya's life is in danger, Kagari arrives to his rescue dressed as a witch. It is revealed that Kagari is what is known as a Workshop Witch within the city and Takamiya is under her protection."

Gender-bendered witchcraft.

Is this from an otome game?
The huge girl is deadpan emotionless, like if to allow the girl-player to self-insert her own emotions. The guy is weak and keeps needing to be rescued by her. And the rest of the cast in that world are lifeless automatons, save for the five witches who want that same guy too.
Hmm... No, it's from a manga.
Ok then I guess the appeal is all about how funnily unpossible the situations are. And yeah, some of the situations were hilarious, in a "It feels good when they stop beating me up" sort of way.

D-Frag! - 01
"Kazama Kenji likes to believe he is something of a delinquent. Moreover, others seem to like to agree that he is. Of course, Kenji's gang finds their way to a group of four not-so-normal girls - Chitose, Sakura, Minami and Roka - and all at once, whatever reputation he may have, is nothing compared to the outrageous behaviour of the girls. Shanghaied into joining their club, what will happen to his everday life from that point on?"

Fragged club activities.

Ok, let's see what this is about...
Zzzh... Mngh? I fell asleep before even watching half the episode. As I don't want to end in a coma, I think I'll stop here.
For the fans.

Hamatora - 01
""Minimum"-- Otherwise known as "small miracles", is a special power that only manifests within a few, select humans. Those who possess this ability are called "Minimum Holders." 2014: Yokohama. The detective duo of Nice and Murasaki, otherwise known as "Hamatora," wait again today for work with their friends at a table at Cafe Nowhere that they use as their agency. Suddenly, a job they receive seems to have a weird connection with the serial killer that their police friend, Art is searching for."

Super-garish detectives.

I like detective work, but those garish colors everywhere... eurgh! It looks shoddy.

10 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-01-09 18:34 ID:krb947hr

Engaged to the Unidentified - 01
"Yonomi Kobeni, an ordinary girl, finds out on her 16th birthday that she is betrothed to Mitsumine Hakuya, a boy the same age as her. Hakuya moves in from the countryside and starts living with her, bringing his younger sister who is still a primary school student with him."

Slice of ordinary comedy.

Whew, that was a breath of fresh air after the other anime, the colors and the animation were so soothing... eh, hold on, only one guy, and he is a half-mute? Where are the other guys? In the ED, maybe? Nope, "only" nine girls and the mum mate there.
The grandpa will show up, maybe? Ah no, he is dead... Maybe a little too soothing.

11 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-01-09 20:09 ID:krb947hr

Fast-forward reviews:
Strange+ 01: First joke was about... Oh, it ended? The joke was never explained.
SoniAni 01: Poor girl, nobody ever told her she was still wearing headphones. So mean.
Robot Girls Z 1-3: Parodies after parodies, parobodies? Zingers galore.

12 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-01-10 06:07 ID:krb947hr

Magical Warfare - 01
"When Nanase Takeshi, a regular high school student, encounters Aiba Miu, a girl from a world of destruction, he winds up getting involved in a grand battle between mages."

School life, with magical battles.

Two guys and two girls? Good balance here, at last.
But, in this world the magical rules are so complicated the characters need to stop fighting to make an infodump every now and then. Thankfully, the bad guys stop attacking too!

13 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-01-10 18:03 ID:krb947hr

There Be Reviews:
ZX IGNITION 01: Trading cards promo piece. Confused and confusing.
Pupa 01: Very short. Horror. For fans.
Hozuki no Reitetsu 01: Daily life of the aide of the king of hell. For viewers who can understand the references and/or appreciate the humor.

Wake Up, Girls! - 01
"The story is set during the "idol sengoku jidai" (idol warring stages period) and follows seven girls who persevere during these tumultuous times."

Idol group anime.

"Wake Up, Girls! - Seven Idols - 01" seems to be the movie, which was very nice, and
"Wake Up, Girls! - 01" seems to be the continuation as a TV series, which is slow moving, less well drawn/animated, and seems to fuddle around.
What happened to the movie's nice scriptwriter?

15 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-01-11 03:54 ID:krb947hr

No-Rin - 01
"When the national idol Kusakabe Yuka suddenly retired from the entertainment business, it shocked the world and it devastated teenager Hata Kosaku. Kosaku was Yuka's biggest fan and her departure left him depressed. His classmates at the Tamo Agriculture School finally are able to get him to leave his room and attend his class, but to everyone's amazement, Kusakabe Yuka (her stage name) comes into the class under the name Kinoshita Ringo as a transfer student."

Idol goes farming.

The farming was not as good as in "Silver Spoon".
The style reminds me of "Baka to Test to Shokanju". Ah yes, same studio.
So, "Idiots and Idol"? Or is it going to be a romantic comedy of sorts?

16 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-01-12 04:27 ID:krb947hr

Sekai Seifuku - Bouryaku no Zvezda - 01 ("World Conquest - Star Plot")
"Zvezda is a secret society that is bent on world conquest. It is led by a little girl named Kate Hoshimiya."

A loli wants to rule the world and is recruiting soldiers.

As the final result seems to be a destroyed world, I'm not sure it was a good idea.
Will this be a parody of the Roman Empire? The British Empire? The Chinese Empire? Some other empire?
Let's see the next episode.

17 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-01-12 04:43 ID:krb947hr

Nisekoi - 01 ("Fake Love")
"Nisekoi follows high school student Raku Ichijou, the son of a leader in the yakuza faction Shuei-Gumi, and Chitoge Kirisaki, the daughter of a boss in a rival gang known as Beehive. They unexpectedly meet when Chitoge hops a wall and knees Raku in the face. After she runs off, Raku realizes he has lost his pendant which was given to him by his childhood sweetheart with whom he made a secret promise. After discovering Chitoge is a new transfer student in his class, he forces her to help him look for the pendant."

Yakuza romcom.

Eew, done by SHAFT. Meaning, very nice art/animation but completely unreal backgrounds. I'll need a few hours until my head stop spinning.

18 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-01-12 22:44 ID:krb947hr

Wizard Barristers - Benmashi Cecil - 01
"In 2018, humans and wizards live together in Tokyo. Police continue to protect order in society, but wizards are tried according to magical law, in special courts defended by wizard barristers. At age seventeen, Cecile has just become the youngest wizard barrister, and begins work at the Butterfly Law Offices. While she hasn't realized it yet, she has tremendous magical potential."

Magical girl.

Quick, call the fashion police, I saw a fashion victim!
What, she is the main heroine? And a lawyer?
No wonder ultra-violence is rampant in that world...

19 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-01-15 21:53 ID:krb947hr

Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha - 01
"Inari Fushimi is a clumsy girl who has a crush on fellow classmate Ko-ji Tanbabashi. One day, after rescuing a fox pup named Kon from falling into a river, Inari is greeted by a shrine god named Uka-no-Mitami-no-Kami, who gives Inari a portion of her power, allowing her to transform her appearance to that of any other human."

Magical girl, with a sidekick.

Ah, similar to Gingitsune/Silver_Fox, another fox deity misusing her allotted divine power... not once, but twice this time. Why don't they have some kind of quality assurance system in the heavens to prevent this kind of recurring problem?

20 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-04-03 23:57 ID:Heaven

Zero-time reviews:
Majin Bone 01: based on a card game, 3D invader beater. Buy-buy, baby.
selector infected WIXOSS 01: card game, mawkish un-story. Consumer gotta consume.

21 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-04-04 16:26 ID:Heaven

Blade and Soul - 01
"Alka is an assassin for the Clan of the Sword. She's on a journey to find the woman Jin Valel, who killed her master Hon. Jin is demon-like woman who controls the Energy of Chaos and kills without feeling - not unlike how Alka has learned to kill in her work as an assassin. On her journey, Alka encounters three strange women, each great warriors in their own right, and grapples with her slain master's wish that she leave the life of an assassin behind."
Done by Gonzo, based on a Korean MMORPG.

Korean storytelling.

Inconsistent characters, vapid schoolyard-like interactions, people dying left and right just "because"... I get the feeling someone whipped up a script on a napkin in a rush during a commute. Probably intended to drive people to play the game instead.
By Gonzo? Their previous work, "Dog&Scissors," was also inconsistent, and was left with no conclusion.
For the fans.

22 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-04-05 17:53 ID:krb947hr

Daimidaler - 01
"Kouichi Madanbashi is a high schooler who possesses Hi-ERo particles, which are used as an energy source for the robot Daimidaler. He obtains these particles by groping females, and uses them to power up the robot in order to fight penguin-shaped robots from the evil Penguin Empire."

Giant robots invasion parody.

If it's dangerous to be in those big machines, why don't they use remote control to pilot one? Is it because it's powered by "Hi-ERo particles", and it needs to be in close range, or something?
And if he needs to continually grope the girl in the cockpit to recharge, why not redesign the place into something more comfortable for battling? A bed, maybe?

23 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-04-05 19:10 ID:krb947hr

Kindaichi Case Files R - 01
"Taiki Matsuno plays a high school boy named Hajime Kindaichi who usually seems dull, but when there is a case, he demonstrates remarkable deductive skills inherited from his famous detective grandfather."

High school detective.

Slow exposition, with everybody tagged like in an investigation, even before the crime has even occurred.
Ok, let's see, who is the most unlikely culprit here? Hmmm... Oh! I can see the ending!

24 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-04-05 20:08 ID:krb947hr

Mahouka - 01 (The irregular at magic high school)"
"In 2095, Tatsuya Shiba and his sister Miyuki Shiba are new students enrolling at the Private Magic University Affiliated High School (First High School). Students are ranked according to their test scores: students with the best grades are designated "Bloom" and enrolled in the Course 1 curriculum, while those with poor scores are designated "Weed" and enrolled in Course 2. Miyuki topped the entrance exams and is selected to be the first years' representative, while Tatsuya is placed in Course 2 due to his low practical test score, despite scoring the highest in the written portion of the exams."

Fabulous rivalries.

Whoa, this is heavy, Doc.
Thick hate everywhere. Is this from CLAMP? I saw the girl from Angelic_Layer, and the guy from Reservoir_Chronicle. And at the end of the ED we see two guys flaunting their guns at each other.
Mmmh... No, but it's by Madhouse studio, which has done several CLAMPed thingies.
Why are things so heavy in the future?

25 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-04-05 23:39 ID:krb947hr

Captain Earth - 01
"The story follows second-year high school student Daichi Manatsu suddenly spies a mysterious circular rainbow floating in the skies over Tanegashima island on television, on the evening before summer vacation begins. Moved by intense foreboding, he heads to Tanegashima, the home of Japan's Tanegashima Space Center, by himself..."

Battling living comets.

Not sure yet.
First part was nicely mysterious and interesting, but second part was giant robot technobabble and sleep-inducing.

26 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-04-06 21:49 ID:krb947hr

Quantum leap reviews:
Kamigami no Asobi 01: Zeus throws a girl into a harem of wolfish gods. Wishful otome game.
Seikoku no Dragonar 01: Parry Hotter and his loli dragon. Sex please, we're British.
One Week Friends 01: One-week-reboot girl. Bed hairs dorama.
Haikyuu 01: Shorty wants to play big. Volleyball anime.
Baby Steps 01: Spock-guy analyzes tennis' skirts. Sports anime.

Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii - 01 (=The World Is Still Beautiful)
"Nike, the fourth princess of the Rain Dukedom, holds the power to call forth the rain. She travels to the Sun Kingdom to marry Sun King Livius for her country, despite her own reluctance in the matter. She soon discovers that the King, who conquered the world in only three years after his ascendance to the throne, is still a young boy!"

Supergirl "solves" kingdom intrigues.

Ok, in the first episode she wanted to do a secret mission to study the situation. But she fubared her recon.
Then, she brawled with friendlies?
Alas, poor Kingdom!

28 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-04-07 00:34 ID:krb947hr

Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou - 01 (=We Are All Pitiful)
"Kazunari Usa will start living far from his parents in a dormitory near his school just to find out that a pervert he meets earlier and his crush are living in the same dormitory as him."

Maison Ikkoku remake of sorts.

The guy blushes like a girl, his crush is a tomboy... A gender-bendered Maison_Ikkoku? But the Maison_Ikkoku's grandma is now the manager, and the busty babe is still boozing. Maybe more like a homage, then.
Has potential.

29 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-04-07 22:23 ID:krb947hr

Revved up reviews:
Oreca Battle 01: card battles. Kids anime.
Hero Bank 01: card battles. Ka-ching!
Dragon Collection 01: It's about... card battles! And "trapped into a game", on top of it.
Mangaka-san to Assistant-san to 01: Research is hard work, like groping breasts, collecting panties and getting trashed by girls. "The plot needs work", you say? What's a "plot"?

30 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-04-08 21:30 ID:krb947hr

Zip-zapping reviews:
Brynhildr in the Darkness 01: Looking for aliens with a girl from the Matrix. Mind-numbing unlogics.
Mahou Shoujo Taisen 01: Sidekicks are so rude nowadays. But what can a poor magical salaryman girl do?
Black Bullet 01: Battling invaders with meek martial arts, a gun out of bullets, a loli spider and no bubblegum? Just Another Day at the Office.

31 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-04-09 20:33 ID:krb947hr

No Game No Life - 01
"The internet is full of rumors about the Neet and Hikikomori genius gamer siblings Sora and Shiro. The two go as far as to refer to the world as a "shit game", but then one day a young man calling himself "God" summons them to a parallel universe. There, God has forbidden war, and "everything is to be settled with games". Yes, even the national borders."

Multiversal gamers.

But, why does the god of another world wants a genius loli who can play chess?
And, what do you mean, "No signal"? You are in a parallel world, you need to dowse for a location with a good magnetic ley line for resonance amplification. Then you can call Mom and say, "I can't go to school tomorrow, I'm in some kind of alternate spacetime!"

32 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-04-10 19:01 ID:krb947hr

Hitsugi no Chaika - 01 (Chaika - The Coffin Princess
"Toru Acura is a 20-year-old retired soldier meandering through life now that the war has ended. He encounters Chaika Trabant, a 14-year-old sorceress carrying a coffin, and follows her in hopes of finding meaning to his life again."

Post-war intrigues.

So far, so good.
Looks interesting, with multiple mysteries.
I'll follow this in the hope of finding what it all means.

33 Name: Sling!XD/uSlingU : 2014-04-10 21:27 ID:krb947hr

Ryuugajou Nanana no Maizoukin - 01 (Nanana's Buried Treasure)
"Disowned by his father, Jugo Yama has run away from home to the island of Nanae. He begins to live by himself, only to discover his room is haunted by the ghost of Nanana Ryugajo. She was murdered ten years ago, and her killer must be found before she can rest in peace. Before her death, Nanana collected things from all over the world and hid them throughout the island."

Treasure hunt.

Nice animation.
But, a ghost... who can eat pudding? ... Oh well.
Who got stabbed in the back... but didn't look at her killer afterwards? ... Oh, well.
Who was very very rich... and no one investigated the one who snatched her fortune? ... Oh. Well!
...I'm guessing this is just the setup, and the real stuff is yet to come up.

Fuuun Ishin Dai Shogun 01: Fighting an invasion of big breasted ninja babes who want your male virginity, your foxy loli and your giant robot? Sure, whatever you say, bro.

Mekakucity Actors - 01 (Blindfold-city Actors)
"Shintaro Kisaragi -- a HikiNEET who shut himself inside his room for 2 years -- has been living his life normally until he met a cyber girl named Ene, who appeared in his computer screen when someone anonymously sent him a mysterious e-mail one year ago. One day, Ene messes with Shintaro's computer, which causes the computer to break and forces Shintaro to enter the outside world for first time in two years."

Living in a mechanical clockwork world.

This is fun.
Very nice voice acting, and good animation.
Ok, the end of the episode makes no sense, so this probably has to do with an ability to rewind time, or something. Or to preview several parallel futures.
Next episode, please.

M3 - Sono Kuroki Hagane - 01 (=M3: That Black Steel)
"There is distorted, deep blackness everywhere. That place, in which blackness swallowed everything and carried everything away, has become known as the Avidya Zone. Strange beings that wholly embody the despair and chaos of humanity. They are known by this name: Imashime. An expedition to survey the Avidya Zone which consumes human spirits. In a complex crossing between the present day in which impending disaster looms and the fate of the past, can eight boys and girls, assembled to confront the Imashime, find the bright future that lies before the Avidya Zone?"

Gritty robotic dark metal school.

Bipedal robots that -have- to be piloted directly? Check.
Schoolyard interactions, filled with hostility? Check.
Most of the episode darker than a Doom corridor? Check.
Evil/mean/stupid adults? Check.
Technobabble, psychobabble, babblingbabble? Check.
Lemme see, what means "Avidya"? "Ignorance of the identity of oneself with Brahman, resulting in imprisonment within the cycle of birth and death."
I think I need more vidya.

Argevollen - 01
"The story takes place in a world where two countries, Arandas and Ingelmia, have been warring against each other for a very long time. Tokimune, a young man belonging to the eighth autonomous unit of Arandas, saves a girl named Jamie when she is attacked by enemy forces. In order to survive, he rides the new weapon Argevollen and fights."

Biped bimanous giant robots.

War, war never changes. It's always about putting a clueless young kid into a super-duper giant robot that he stumbles upon on the side of the road accidentally. And then to find the enemy, and then to get jailed for 40 years because he blew up the money racket of the warmongers.
Good luck, young grasshopper!

Glasslip 01: Slice of sweet nothingnesses, tempests in a teapot. Cock-a-doodle-doo!
Rail Wars 01: Forcing greenhorns to shoot live bullets around in a room full of people? Getting fired for arresting the bad guys? Too close to the truth.

Aldnoah Zero - 01
"In 1972, the Apollo 17 mission discovered a hypergate to Mars on the surface of the moon. Soon, a war breaks out between Earth and Mars, and Martian soldiers begin to descend from the sky, riding steel giants, intent on exterminating humanity."

Apocalypse Zero Now.

Pretty good.
The casus belli looks like a false-flag operation, typical of war hacks nowadays.
But I suspect the princess is still alive somewhere to--... oh wait, Gen Urobuchi is on this? Then sayonara, sweet princess.

"Sakura Chiyo confesses her feelings to her schoolmate Nozaki. Due to a misunderstanding, Nozaki thinks Sakura is just a fan. She then discovers Nozaki's other identity; a shoujo manga artist. As she gets closer to Nozaki, she befriends Nozaki's quirky acquaintances who assist him and serve as inspirations for his manga."

No-romance-allowed shoujo comedy.

Anytime the girl wants to go in love-love mode, the guy throws ice-cold water on her dreams.
For the fans of cold showers.

Zankyou no Terror - 01 (Terror in Resonance)
"In an alternate iteration of the present, Tokyo has been hit by a terrorist attack that has devastated the city, with the only evidence of the culprits being a confusing video uploaded to the internet, which only spreads paranoia throughout Japan. Unbeknownst to the authorities is that the terrorist masterminds who call themselves "Sphinx" are two teenaged boys, who go by the names Nine and Twelve, who apparently should not exist and have decided to wake up the world with their heinous plans of death and destruction with their fingers on the trigger."

Teddy bear terrists.

A wannabe terror job by two kiddies?
Without a corrupt media, replaying the same images over and over for 10+ years?
Without a complicit administration, hushing away the evidence, and selling out an useless security theater?
Yeah, good luck with that.

Rokujouma no Shinryakusha - 01 (Invaders of the Six-Tatami Mat Room)
"Now that he enters his high school career, Satomi Koutaro begins his life living alone in an apartment that only costs him 5000 yen per month, an extremely cheap deal even for this small apartment. There's a catch: the apartment is apparently haunted by a cute ghost that has driven its prior occupants away. Next thing he knows, not only is there a ghost trying to drive him out of his new home, but magical girls and other unique female characters turn this small apartment into a battleground of sorts."

Cursed room service.

Looks like fun.
I'm amazed the TV was not destroyed by all those blasts. That TV must be either holy or cursed. Or both.
Will more oddities show up? No sure, as there is no OP nor ED yet. Ah! But there were nine colored balls in his dream. So, five girls, four more to go. And then, to the final boss!

Gundam Reconguista in G - 01-02
"The series takes place in the timeline after Universal Century, called Regild Century (R.C.), in the year R.C. 1014, and follows the story of a young pilot cadet named Bellri Zenam, who is a member of the Capital Guard, an organization charged with protecting the orbital elevator, the Capital Tower. When the Capital Tower was under attack by a band of space pirates called the Pirate Corps, Bellri encounters and captures a highly advanced mobile suit, the G-Self, and its pilot, Aida Surugan."

Overman King Gundam.

Very lively, but I dunno what's going on yet.
Is that a religious pecking order society? An aristocratic order, maybe? Or a military one? But the discipline is very weak. A patriarchal society? But some pilots were female...
Alright, let's see more.
BTW, cool mecha chocobos.

Ushinawareta Mirai wo Motomete 01: eromance game adaption, in semi-3D, on a razor-thin budget. Plot may be worth a look.
Madan no Ou to Vanadis 01: very idealistic medieval fantasy. The babes are hot, tho.
Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai 01: chain-smoking OL marries a geek, hilarity ensues. Wait what, where's her smoke?

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.

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.

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.

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?
