Ah, autumn. The leaves turn that orangish-brown, and fall off of the trees. The crisp air flowing out of your lungs touches the cold air, appearing as a small cloud.
…And the fucking snow.
Gotta love Alaska.
Anyways, we’ve got a good crop of anime right at the start of the season, so let’s see who the candidates are!
Gintama: Another one?
Black Clover: From the creators of Naruto and something else is this show about becoming a wizard or something. Looks kinda cool.
Infini-T Force: Imagine if Gatchaman, Casshern, Hurricane Polymer, and Tekkaman all came into a single anime series that would run for a whole season OH WAIT. (Honestly, I only know about Gatchaman and Casshern). It’s for Tatsunoko Productions’ 55th anniversary, so congrats.
Juuni Taisen: Imagine if there was a magical battle that was fought by people representing the Chinese Zodiac. Now imagine that to win, you need to collect a bunch of poisonous jewels from each of the other contestants’ stomachs while simultaneously protecting your own stomach. Oh, and there’s guns and swords and shit. If you just said “What?”, you had my exact reaction to the first episode.
Osake wa Fuufu ni Natte Kara: Something something something drunk girls. I wasn’t going to watch it originally, but there’s a qT that I want to see.
Shokugeki no Soma 3: As a rule, I don’t watch cooking shows, because they make me hungry for food I can’t afford. Just watching anime is kinda breaking that rule; if I also watched this show on top of that, I would be dead from starvation during the first season. Also, there was something about tentacle rape in the very first episode. So yeah.
Konohana Kitan: Cute fox girls doing Hanasaku Iroha things. And I loved HanaIro. Let’s see if the furry in me does as well.
URAHARA: So, I thought I watched the first episode of this. But when I started the second episode, I was so confused, I just turned off my computer and went to sleep. I’ll try again later.
Ousama Game: If you like shows that incorporate the use of common Japanese games you may love this one. Especially of you like supernatural, psychological horror. Blondie got what he got.
Dießirae / Dies irae: Something to do with Nazis and magic.
Kino’s Journey~ The Beautiful World: Already rating this show 10/10. While the second episode was just a retelling of two 2003 episodes, hopefully it will follow the path of the first episode, and give us new tales about Kino and Hermes. If you can’t tell, I love Kino’s Journey.
Girl’s Last Tour: A strangely haunting and interesting anime about two girls in a post-apocalypse. In two episodes, we’ve learned more about the world surrounding them than the actual characters – which may or may not be a good thing, depending on your view.
Blend S: It’s like if Working! crossed paths with a personality maid cafe. Actually, it’s exactly that, with a creepy fetish-hungry manager.
Land of the Lustrous: To really enjoy this show, you’ll have to get past the main art style: complete 3D animation with Anime-style graphics. It’s cool, but painful.
Mahou-Tsukai no Yome (TV): I really enjoyed the OVA’s. Well, OVA; I never saw 2 or 3. But the first episode for the series was great. Highly recommend both the OVAs and the TV series.
Two Car: I actually don’t know anything about this show. It looks like Boobs then Animation by Silver Link featuring KyoAni.
Stupid Fucking Little Sister Bitch Season 2: Also known as Himouto! Umaru-chan R. If the title didn’t tell you my feelings for this show, then nothing will. Ebina best girl.
Sho-Bitch: No, this isn’t an insult to this show – it’s called My Girlfriend is a Faithful Virgin Bitch. It’s a funny show, but I wouldn’t call her a bitch, just socially awkward and sexually frustrated.
3Gatsu S2: I REALLY NEED TO FINISH SEASON 1.
…and of course My Hero Academia S3. But you probably know how I feel about that.
There’s a lot of interesting shows this season – most I’ll probably watch, but there are some on the Shana Project page that I didn’t even list. This season looks really good, so here’s hoping for the best, and for no flops.
Those I didn’t comment on:
UQ Holder; Cinderella Girls Gekijou; Sengoku Night Blood; Tsukipro the Animation; Love Kome S2; Just Because!; Yuuki Yuuna Washio Sumi Arc; Classicaloid 2; Code:Realize; Love Live Sunshine 2; Kekkai Sensen & Beyond; Idolm@ster Side M; Anime-Gataris; and so many more that I didn’t list.
Good luck, Fall 2017 season. We’ll see how you fared in November… and then again in January.
Good night everyone.
