Instead of doing reviews for stuff or combo videos this is a new kind of post for me. This time I am gonna post about the animes that I am interested to watch of Fall 2013. These are strictly my views, so you guys may agree or disagree, but please feel free to give your comments & opinions regarding this post. The animes are in alphabetical order & is not listed as per any other category.
A fighting game anime, as you know from my blog I am a big fighting game fan, and BlazBlue is definitely one of the better games of the new emergence of fighting games. More to boost my expectation is the fact that the game also does have good storyline, which is quite rare in the fighting game genre. It is also from Arc System Works who are also the makers of Guilty Gear, this company is also particularly know for there good sense in background music and over all rocking soundtracks, so I am also hoping for something good in that aspect.
Ok, what's so special about a sports anime you might ask? Aren't they all kind of generic with the protagonist goes through match after match to learn beating all & tries to be the best in the business, has a few rival who him beats at the end etc etc? Well I would say this anime is almost like that, but as I have read through the translated manga I can also tell you not quite, this is a bit different, yes the hero is very much alike most other hard-working shounen heroes, yes other cast members are also quite like typical shounen cast, but despite everything somehow the characters are all quite likeable & one other thing this manga did was made someone like me who never watched a single Baseball game interested in the sports. And there is also the fact that this anime is made by Production I.G. So I expect a top notch animation too.
Though I am not actually that much of a romcom fan but I am interested in this for 3 reasons & 3 reasons only; one, it is done by the writer of Toradora , I really loved that light novel; two, for the fact that this anime is not on a school setting for once, its on a college; three, I started reading the first volume of this light novel (translated, from baka-tsuki, thanks guys, visit this awesome site people & support them) & so far it feels quite unique and enjoyable & the writing style is quite good (the translation is top notch too, thanks to baka-tsuki again).
One of the most hyped shows of this season. And why not, it has got the oh so popular combo of school & action. And its also form Trigger who were behind "Gurren Lagann". I am interested in this for Trigger's involvement cause honestly I had my share of the mentioned combo so if not for Trigger I would have though it might not be anything special.
I will watch this cause I love rpg's, I love them very much & there is so much memory of me spending countless hours on rpgs. So I believe I do deserve to spend hours watching shows based on rpgs too. I do hope this will be good though & that these feels more like playing a game than watching a show. And somehow I am almost quite certain that this show will not live up to my expectations. Oh well, one can dream, can't one?
This is the story of the brother & sister Utsutsu and Yume Hasegawa. One day Yume sees a mysterious red butterfly & her body undergoes a strange metamorphosis, she turns into a creature that eats human. Her brother struggles to find a way to restore her to normal. Tell me that synopsis doesn't interest you? This anime gives me the vibe of psychological horror that I enjoy so much in my TV shows and animes. I really have high hopes for this show, but sadly no one knows when this will air or even if it will.
Btw, I still haven't found any sites to download the translated first volume of this manga, so if anyone can point me in the right direction I will be very much grateful.
These are the shows I am mostly interested in this season. I might also watch Coppelion (seinen+post-apocalyptic, could be good), Kuroko no Basket 2 ( Production I.G. & have heard good things, have to watch the first season before though), Magi: The Kingdom of Magic (the premise is promising, need to watch the first season though),Kyoukai no Kanata (second most hyped show of the season), Yowamushi Pedal (this season I am somewhat feeling like watching sports shows somehow).
So that's about it, hope this season turns out to be a good one & hope to do reviews of some of the shows in the future.
