Aldnoah.Zero 2. Can't wait.
Aldnoah.Zero 2. Can't wait.
Tokyo Ghoul and Aldnoah 2 are all that's on my radar so far.
I suppose I should watch Aldnoah and Tokyo Ghoul's first season, because absolutely nothing on the show portion makes me go "Yeah that's a watch." =/
Two good returning shows and a bunch of continuations from fall. Hell even if all the new stuff premiering sucks there'll be a half dozen good shows to watch anyway.
Wasn't attack on titan supposed to come out in this block or is that slate for the next go round?
Aldnoah and Kuroko coming out, both should be amazing.
Aldnoah, tokyo ghoul, absolute duo, anantsu, durara and Shinmai maou no testament for me to watch till the end (absolute and shinmatsu im reading the manga, and lightnovel for shinmatsu). Absolute due is very interesting while shinmatsu its classical harem story, but very action packed with magica and demons and fights etc..im generally a sucker for that type of show even if its nothing major. Rest of the show dunno, some ill check (isuca read the manga, juuou, exodus etc) proly will give couple of episode but ya season to come seem bit weak compared to this one.
If Cross Ange is continuing through winter I am going to be set for my mecha needs between that and Aldnoah.
An Ars Nova movie? If I can find it i'll watch.
Other shows that I know are continuing into the Winter 2015 season:
Garo: The Animation
Log Horizon 2
Nanatsu no Taizai
Might be others of stuff I don't watch or probably didn't remember.
Fate/Stay UBW is ending this season with 13, then supposedly 2nd season of it starts in April.
Yuri Kuma Arashi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Yuri Kuma Arashi (ユリ熊嵐?, lit. "Lily Bear Storm") is a Japanese anime television series produced by Silver Link and directed by Kunihiko Ikuhara."
Welp, guess I know what I'm watching.
Garo is still awesome - even more so after this last episode lol. There's still another season of it.
Who's the main character now? Good question!
German is probably the best character in the history of ever
Service with a smile, Tsukimonogatari. You will feel like a dirty pervert.
Damn, looks like both Aldnoah and Kuroko don't premier until 1/10. Both of these are easily better then this entire season (though UBW and Parasyte are strong). Not the biggest sports anime fan but Kuroko just blew everything else I saw in the last five years out of the water in that genre. Haikyuu was good recently but no where near Kuroko. This is going to be a good season.
Some days I believe that all strange things originate in Japan.
Aldnoah the good anime with the annoying nobody who does shit at the end.
The first episode of Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! was amazing! By far the runaway anime of the season.
What type of show is it? Brief synopsis please!
Absolute Duo was only so-so in all categories, not sure that will delivery on any of its genres. Couldn't get through the first episode of either the Kuma or KanColle show, must be a japanese yuri WTF thing. I was reading the Shinmai Maou no Testament manga which actually hasn't gotten that far but it should be decent DxD-like show and now I'm glad I didn't read all of it from the novel.
Parasyte didn't advance the plot too much this week; it's all about the feels and lack of feels.
Haha, I suck then. I usually ignore the title of a show because that doesn't always tell you much about it. So if people have suggestions, I'm all for them.
FINALLY got around to watching Parasyte. Really good so far. I'm on episode 6 now and the kid just got back from the hospital with his father and he looks like a new person again, and the two girls spotted him. They're totally DTF. The gang chick, at least.
Junketsu no Maria was streamed early online, bit of fan service (as is the future plot) but definitely has the medieval witch theme working. Wonder if it will be a mix-up of Witch Craft Works and The Seven Deadly Sins.
Hm, not sure what to think about Tokyo Ghoul 2. Does this first episode follow the manga at all, or will it be a new story?
The second season is a anime original story, not sure if they are going to include much if anything from the manga.
So I caught up with Parasyte. The chick with the ear muffs was definitely the cute one of the group. Stupid, but cute. She was going to be a goer also, if she didn't go and fuck it up by being dumb. Poor Izumi. He now suffers for her being dumb.

[Tokyo Ghoul] Second Season will have Anime-Original Story [Winter 2015] : anime
Reddit post from what was announced about the upcoming season. Sounds like it may include things from the manga but the author himself is writing a new story for the anime? Not sure why, I haven't had a chance to catch the new episode myself yet.
Hmm interesting, i stand corrected then. Well in a way its a good thing, tokyo ghouls ending part of manga was quite a mess sort of, and imho very much rushed. Looking forward to it. Tho it say also tokyo ghoul:re has a totally new main char, as i said havent read it myself yet, but chatter around said it was still kaneki (under a different name/amnesia plot or something like that), guess ill start to read it a bit.

on another note, impressed with death parade.. awesome graphic and animations, and bit strange story (made me think back at nightmare cafe if anyone ever seen it). will keep watching it.
It's a really fucked up story. I was a bit confused with the end, though.
hmmm. i dont think the game result had any impact on the final judgment, but was only to reveal the true nature of them. Or so that is how i percieved it. She kept lying till the end till the moment she thought she had won, and the game show both their true colors. Judgment was bout what they did while they were alive, the guy while acting a bit fucked up in the bar, was a ok person in life, yeh he caused the crash but no purposely.. she was a real bitch so well...
Bout magic, well technically, the bar is a sort of gateway before your soul going to its next place, so supernatural things like that are kinda not so strange? The rules of the game, and the pain they caused and how they caused it was just a way to reveal themself.
Yea, I agree with Nyn about Death Parade. I hope the characters that run the Bar are interesting, because seeing a show each week that is only about revealing the true nature of those who died would be pretty dull. Hoping Aldnoah doesn't disappoint.
Fuck Slaine and his shittyness.
Yeah the Orange Knight thing was already an idea a ways back. But now we have the princess being Best Princess and Slaine can die like a bitch at the end of this season.
So I am a tad confused... How did they re-active the Aldnoah drive in the ship? Am I missing something here?
EDIT: Was it the blood on the piece of paper? It almost seemed like Inaho activated it?
Marvel Heroes - LostVirtue
Playstation Network ID - LostVirtue
Royals have control over the power of aldnoah, but they can grant the ability to use and activate it to the knights. That's why they had the flashback to Inaho giving mouth-to-mouth to Best Princess, because bodily fluid transfer is involved in the process. Whether it was 100% Inaho as a knight or knight + royal blood it doesn't matter they can spin it any way they want since they showed Best Princess' body being clinically alive.
Blood splatter from Princess got on Inaho and entered his wounds is what it looks like. Likewise it could be the kiss making the system think they are "bound" by an oath? Who knows but with the blood splatter convo that popped up when they wondered why it happened im going with that.
Fuck Slaine, let that nigga die - I wonder what excuse he will come up with when she wakes up.
Inaho is such a beast. Glad the badass fight song is back.
eh, I mean I like that Inaho is alive on one hand but the shitty plot armor and the show relying a bit too much on convenience bothers me on the other. Either way just happy its back hah.

Or simply remember from S1 that Slaine told the princess the wrong explanation for the blue sky, which Best Princess mentioned and Inaho corrected her on. Slaine told the new princess the same thing, she repeated it and Inaho knows for 100% that she's fake.
Friend of mine argued with me a while back that season two wouldn't start with a time jump. Fuck you bitch I was right! Liked the episode, really curious to see how it plays out. Mostly curious about what's going to happen with Slaine and whether or not he turns on everyone at some point and is just waiting for the proper moment.
uhmm exodus seem promising. Very good art/animation/graphic, story too early to tell even tho they introduced so many characters in the first episode that made it difficult to understand who is who and what was going on. Will keep watching, plus has mechs !
- Ange - She's definitely in dragon world now. I didn't realize that dragon world and non dragon world were exactly the same, just at different times. Good episode.
- I enjoyed Aldnoah.Zero, but it was definitely whacked out in the beginning. Slaine is pure crazy town, more so than before.
- Log Horizon was decent for what it was. This was only about introducing new characters. I enjoyed the story they told. I have a feeling that Ninja Frog & Akatsuki will become either great friends or rivals. Both will teach each other things.
- I have this sad suspicion that cute blonde chick from Shigatsu died in her sleep and that's why she didn't show up to the recital. I really hope that isn't the case, because I want to hear her perform again.
Ok, those are my summeries from the latest episodes that I actually watch.

Seiken Tsukai no World Break might be good if it has some actual action in it, but otherwise it's subpar. The raw for Nanatsu is out haven't seen subs yet.
I have no idea what to think of Assassination classroom. It's different I'll tell you that.
So in log horizon episode 13 is called, a sweet trap, and the picture on crunchy roll, is the trap...
Just watched the latest episode of Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso. It was very well done. I liked it. Still dislike the dead mother, but it at least puts her in a slightly better light. Crazy bitch.
Anyway, good show. 9 more episodes to go until it's over. The comment at the very end makes me think what I speculated about earlier is going to come true.
You'll probably end up being right. Its tied for best show right now with Parasyte in my eyes. Man the hits in the feels just keep on coming.
Just got in to the monogatari series. Decent stuff.
Shinichi starting to go off the rails a bit. Got to admit though that the baby stuff with tamiyo had me cracking up.
Episode 2 of Death Parade made more sense in my mind. The new girl saw things the same way I did while watching the first episode. I felt that the wife was trying to lessen the pain of the husband, even though his own actions are 100% responsible for their situation.
Aldnoah... If only Inaho had a Orbital Knight's Kataphrakt (or technology that matches them)...
Marvel Heroes - LostVirtue
Playstation Network ID - LostVirtue
He will get one, that's just how these series go. I wish they don't give him one though, watching him own people with sub par tech repeatedly is interesting and fun to watch.
Yea, AZ is starting off just fine. Tokyo Ghoul is shaping up a bit, still introducing characters, so maybe we can look forward to some badassness later on.
I stopped after episode 8 this season, which is sad because I really liked season 1. Maybe when it's done I'll binge it in a day because I really hate to leave it unfinished but ugh....
I too hope Inaho in AZ stays with that shitty ass orange Mech, but he's got the activation ability now tho right? so bleh, wish they woulda given him a terminator cyber eye instead of a real human look a like.
I imagine he's going to eventually have his orange mech wrecked at some point and he'll end up stealing one of the martian's. If he could take Slaine's that could prove amusing.
As far as Log Horizon goes I'm just watching it out of pure habit at this point. Other than Aldnoah, Parasyte and Cross Ange, not much available on Crunchyroll interests me this season.
Ghost in the Shell Singer Origa Passes Away - News - Anime News Network
Voice actress Jenya reported on her official Twitter account that singer Origa (birth name Ol'ga Yakovleva) passed away on Saturday due to lung cancer. She was 44 years old.
Russian-born Origa first came to Japan in 1991 on a home-stay program, and made her major debut in Japan in 1995 under the EMI Music Japan label. She performed theme songs for Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society, Fantastic Children, and Princess Arete. She also performed the hymn singing voice for the character Kanon in Gust and KOEI Tecmo Games' Ar nosurge PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita video game, which shipped in Japan last year.
Origa attended Vancouver's Anime Revolution convention last August as a guest.
So... for years the Dragons have been sending enough of their kind across to die and fuel the entire world. That's either dumb writing or some double crossing is going on. I hope Ange chokes a dragon bitch.
There is a possibility that they need aura back to sustain their way of life as well, so they are attacking to try and get him back thus feeding the energy. But you may be right and it's a double cross with the Dragon advisor to late Prince asshole. Pretty sure she can't go undetected by embryo.
Well, I bet he has one now. Although it is really messed up that he was created solely for appeasing men.
Next week's Parasyte should be fun.
About the dream I can see this going Bleach style (hundreds of eps, takes years off high school to fight shit on another planet/dimension/etc). I don't want an answer from a manga reader, I just want to speculate with those that watch the anime.
Ohh, 3 in 1. That'll be interesting. Can't wait to see how the fight goes.
This season is fucking awful, discounting returning shows or fall spillovers. At this point 3/4 of the shows I'm watching just to waste time.
Few good ones, lots of meh, plenty I have no interest in. There's that group of ~6 harem fantasies and likely only 1-2 will be good action shows.
