...the Fall 2013 anime season. Two weeks away, it seems.

I haven't had time to watch any previews or anything(will do when I get to work), but the second seasons of Infinite Stratos and Freezing stand out as things I'll have to watch. How about you? Anything you're excited for?

I might check out Unbreakable Machine Doll since I like the manga, but that's about it for this season.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I've only been watching TWGOK, Attack on Titan and Space Brothers over the summer season.

Now that I have time to look at the previews and read the descriptions, there is some lulz to be seen. Though it could only be me.
Arpeggio of Blue Steel wrote:
Seventeen years ago, a mysterious AI navy called the Fleet of Fog conquered Earth's oceans with incredible technology. Fairly recently, a young captain acquired a Fog submarine. Also, the Fog ships have decided to create female avatars.
That last line had me in stitches for some reason. Perhaps because I was reading it in the voice of Kyon. I read all anime descriptions in that voice.
Diabolik Lovers wrote:
A girl with an active sixth sense ends up living with six brothers, who are actually vampires.
Sadly, I'd probably enjoy this.
Gallilei Donna wrote:
A 'battle action adventure' series, about three of Galileo's female descendants, who are on international wanted lists.
Another I could potentially enjoy.
Kyoukai No Kanata wrote:
Based on a dark fantasy light novel. Disturbing events begin to unfold after a half-demon high school boy with healing powers that leave him invulnerable to wounds rescues a girl with the ability to manipulate blood.
Sounds like Wolverine meets someone from Deadman Wonderland. Could be worth a watch if done well.
Log Horizon wrote:
People are stuck in a VR game and can't log out. Yes, you have heard of at least one series with that premise recently.
I'm a sucker for this kind of thing. Not sure if it'll go more SAO, Btooom! or Ixion Saga in its handling of it, but I'll at least have to check it out.
Ore No Nounai Sentakushi Ga Gakuen Love Come O Zenryoku De Jama **** wrote:
NouCome for short. The main character is a boy is cursed with periodically being given mental multiple-choice questions, which have the answers become reality. Around the time the story begins, this power causes a beautiful girl to fall before him.
Between the preview and the description, this is exactly the kind of thing I'd watch.
Outbreak Company wrote:
A NEET is sent to a fantasy world as a moe evangelist.
Could be hilarious.
Pupa wrote:
A girl turn into a man-eating monster, and her brother searches for a way to change her back.
If it goes dark, it could be great.

Second season of Magi for me. Might browse the others and see if anything interests me.

Only one I am really looking forward to is Blue steel love the manga hope the anime does as well as the manga. Might check out strike the blood, read the manga that is out for it. It's a simple vampire story boy becomes a powerful vampire but doesn't really gives two craps about it other then how much it gets in his way. Might just marathon it when it finishes. Good chance at least checking out freezing as long as they skip the Hawaii ark or don't go into it as much as the manga did and get to Alaska with the E Pandoras.

I'm gonna give Blaz Blue a shot, the one game I played actually had a somewhat interesting story so an anime will probably be decently written. Freezing sounds interesting, but apparently it's a second season so I should go find the first? Infinite Stratos 2 will be my guilty pleasure watch (I enjoyed the first season >_<). The Kill la Kill preview looked hilarious so I'll be giving that a shot (and Studio Trigger means my hopes are high). Kyoukai no Kanata has potential, I just hope it's not dumb. Same with Miss Monochrome and NouCome. Finally, I need to finish watching Valvrave and then continue on into the 2nd season.

I'll watch Blaz Blue if it has Makoto.

Another Hajime no Ippo, so I'll probably watch that out of pure obligation. Always enjoyed the fights. Sekai De Ichiban Tsuyoku Naritai! is a possibility as is Kill La Kill. Aggressive prettiness abound, I'm sure. Nothing truly jumps out.

It's okay. Chef don't judge.

More from the end of the previous season than to do with the new one, but the ending to the Goddess Arc of TWGOK was fairly sad. Manly tears, Keima.

So, yeah. Kill la Kill.

WTF did I just watch, and why do I want more even though my brain knows it'll probably get old quickly?

Pure distilled awesome. With fan service (even some partial male nudity for those so inclined!).

Watched the first episodes of Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio Ars Nova as well as Strike the Blood, Freezing Vibration, Outbreak Company. Aoki Hagane changed some things from the manga. What was changed was done is a way that doesn't mess up the story and it makes sense and would fit with the rest of the manga if they don't alter it to much more. After the first episode think I will follow it weekly. If you like subs, naval warfare with a sci-fi twist and cute girls tossed in for good measure so far its worth the watch.

As for Strike the blood some things were changed a little not much and it showed more then the manga. While it is ok I won't be following it every week, just going to wait till it'll it finishes.

Freezing thankfully skips the the Hawaii ark (they couldn't have done it anyway) and alters the Start of the Alaska ark slightly. Think this one as well might be a wait.

Outbreak Company is not all that interesting. A otaku boy is recruited to be a manger for a export company created by Japaneses Government to assist in cultural exchange and export of anime, manga, games. You can see where it's going in the fist 10 mins or so and by the end you got a good idea of how the rest of it will be, Might watch when finish.if I get bored.
