First look at the fall anime seasonFollow

#1 Aug 14 2011 at 10:25 AM Rating: Good
Clicky.

Which ones are you most excited about? I'm personally quite intrigued by the Lupin III reboot, and excited for the Ika Musume sequel. A couple of the OVAs caught my eye as well.

OMG HunterXHunter! Praying I won't be disappointed by the remake.
And Last Exile! <3

Other than that, I don't see anything that immediately pulls my attention or gets me curious.

Hmmm...

Fate/Zero and Shana are the main ones that jump out at me.

Mirari Niiki, Last Exile, and Fate/Zero are what I'll be watching as they air. I might try the HxH reboot, but I think the old manga story is too fresh in my mind.

A lot of good expected series this season, but I'm not sure we'll have any surprises.

We're finally getting the third season of Shana. Mardock Scramble is also cool.

And WTF at a Scryed recap OVA.

I don't really watch much anime at all, and not usually 'til after a series is over, but I'll probably be watching the new series of Last Exile.

I will definitely watch the new Last Exile, too. And I think I just may check out Lupin III 2011. The original was alright for it's time, if a little campy.

12 episodes into Lucky Star and I decided to drop it. The humor seemed to be the very typical SoL dry and deadpan style. Most of the "jokes" just seemed to be references to other things. Konata acts out the Timotei hair commercial, if you have seen this commercial you will realize she is acting it out, that is the joke. Konata acts out the Haruhi dance, if you have seen this dance you will realize she is acting it out, that is the joke.

It's a great series for producing youtube clips and memes, but as a show alone it didn't stand up much.

I think at least part of the reason for its popularity is that it stars an Otaku who likes everything the audience likes and does everything the audience wants her to do. Konata is the ultimate fan **** the ultimate waifu.

Bored with Ika Musume? BLASPHEMY Smiley: mad

We only watched it 1-2 episodes at a time, though, so maybe that's why we didn't get bored.

As for what I'm looking forward to... I didn't like the Fate/Stay Zero novel that much, so I'm not sure how much I'll enjoy the anime. Lupid III reboot = very yes, though.

I've seen Hunter x Hunter, Phi Brain, and Fate/Zero so far.

Based solely on the first episode, Fate/Zero has been the best so far. If you liked Fate/Stay, then you're in for more of the same with some delicious backstory revelations. Type Moon may deal in cliches, but they do an outstanding job of making me not care. For shounen fare this season, Fate/Zero is probably your fix.

Hunter x Hunter didn't wow me with its first episode, though having read the manga I do know that the beginning is the weakest point in the entire series. Having had a previous anime adaption, it seems to be going the same route as Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood in rushing through the materiel that's been already covered. Hopefully this will not be the case. The most recent arc may have been the greatest, but there's no reason not to take your time laying a solid foundation.

Phi Brain is sending out Yugioh vibes.Forget children's card games; children's puzzle games are the real srs bizness. It may not be good, but it looks to be entertaining.

Mirai Nikki was last night. There's a speedsub available somewhere, though I'm waiting on a higher quality release.

Edit: Okay, broke down and watched it. Really liked the manga, after all. Anyway, nothing unexpected except about ten minutes in (10:31 if you must know. Pic **** Saved.) Yuno is making what appears to be an eraser penis. Obviously that isn't what she was actually doing, but it sure as **** looks like it at first glance. Smiley: laugh

Anyway, most of us read the manga and this is the first episode so yeah. Well animated, the voices are decent, and apparently Deus' jaw works afterall and it wasn't just a mask. Okay, maybe I'm the only one that thought that. For what it's worth, the speedsub I watched wasn't horrible, though a couple of errors. Completely watchable, the most glaring error being in the karaoke at the end that was completely out of sync.

Mirai Nikki and Persona 4 both started off well. I haven't played P4, but I did play P3: FES, and I was almost squealing with joy at how well it covers the basic gameplay (Velvet Room song, similar music for the world, calendar moving the days up, etc). Mirai Nikki was good although I don't remember Yukiteru freaking out quite so much around Gasai at the beginning. I need to reread the manga...

What exactly is Persona 4? I've heard about it, but can't really seem to get a grasp on the content. I might just have to watch the first episode to see if it's any good.

Persona 4 is a Turn based RPG on PS2. Its unigue as it has much sim aspect to it where your main character goes to school and you 'roleplay' his interactions, making friends and building your social status, These social links in game empower your ability to make persona (Mystical beasts)stronger.

Its like Dating Sim meets final fantasy with dungeons being randomly put together. It does a great job of immersing into the game as your get to know every character very well, even NPCs on some instances.

I guess that kind of explains it.

Persona 3 and 4, as far as the games are concerned, had amazing music. P4's music is at least following suit. Also, the day change is the same as the game, which made me chuckle. Aha, and a status screen.

While on the topic, I'd kill for P4P.

Just watched a little of Maken-Ki. HI2U Ikkitousen with Bleach's Full Bring™. That was about seven minutes in, no less.

Finally got around to watching Mirai Nikki. First of all, it's hard to feel the same chills I did when reading the manga, knowing everything that happens. It's definitely not a series you want spoiled. Still, it's a good story and one I like very much, and I'll be watching the anime at the very least for nostalgia.

I didn't care for the introduction change, as it hints at the wrong details, and does so a little early. I also think Mirai Nikki is another manga that is difficult to translate to an anime because still images are so important to conveying the feel of a scene.

I did find the after credits scene to be hilarious.

So the first bit of Mirai Nikki, I found kinda lulzy Him seeing into the future with his imaginary god, but then it quickly got weird.

And then the episode ended, and all I can say is... wat?


I'll keep watching it, seems interesting.

The manga is really good and **** One of the few I've read that was somewhat difficult to predict the direction it was heading. Though, if you do read it you'll end up ruining the anime for yourself.

Persona 4's second episode was fine; the character types are reminded me a lot of the characters in Persona 3 (already thinking of them as Junpei and Yukari). I also remembered that I read the first few manga a loooong time ago, so I knew what would happen in this episode already. D'oh! Oh well.
