When the summer 2015 season was about to air I remarked that it did not look especially interesting to me, and happily that impression was proven wrong. Quite wrong. I was pleasantly surprised by several series and by the season as a whole. However the fall 2015 season not only does not look especially interesting to me but I have had a very strange experience in looking it over several times the past few weeks: not a whole lot looks appealing to my tastes and I find myself with lotsa lotsa hoping to be pleasantly surprised once again. First season in several years that I had no real reads on or anticipation for, and it is more so that the type of anime that looks to be airing may be very good or enjoyable or whatever, but they frankly don’t look terribly interesting to me. :\
No doubt one of the reasons why the upcoming Fall season looks so … bleak … is because of the prevalence of mecha stories. As I have mentioned ad nauseum the mecha genre is just a hard one for me to enjoy. Anyhoo, as before, there are a number of sites that have well developed anime previews, including these: http://static.neregate.com/2015/09/neregate.com-Fall-2015-Anime-Chart-v2.png, http://anichart.net/fall, and https://www.livechart.me/fall-2015/all .
Let’s give the season a look-see then, shall we? ^^
I think the section normally dedicated to my most anticipated series in the coming season containing one OVA and two movies is kinda indicative of the impression it is making on me at the moment. But there is ONE series that I am incredibly hyped about, and that is:
Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka Season Two. The young girl Cocoa arrives at the cafe Rabbit House one day, excited for rabbits. She actually all but lives in that cafe. She meets lots of different girls there, including a tiny and cool girl named Chino, a tough and soldier-esque girl named Lize, a spacey and quintessentially Japanese girl named Chiyo, and the ordinary but dignified Sharo. Season two has Coc
Aria the Avvenire OVA (1 of 3).
Girls und Panzer Movie. I was a big fan of the Girls und Panzer anime series, and the OVAs and the endless manga adaptations are enjoyable as well. For those unfamiliar with the series itself, it is essentially an alternate timeline and history of earth where highschools and even towns or small cities exists on gigantisized Air Craft Carriers and sail around the oceans, periodically putting in at dock. One of the past times of the day is called
. The third of four movies is set in the autumn this time, when Fuu, Kaoru, Norie, and Maon have been promoted to third-year high school students, while Kanae has graduated. Two kouhai already joined the photography club. Even though they bring in new friends, their lively daily life remains unchanged. Yet, the four third-year students are slowly thinking about their own future dreams and paths as they face graduation in about a year. Specifically, the third movie appears to take place during the October bamboo festival and the tagline for the movie is something like: “Little by little and without us noticing, our everyday lives that we had taken for granted are changing.”
Even with this, there are a few series that look like they could be fairly interesting, some because I kinda enjoyed the first seasons, though they were not without their weaknesses. These are mostly shots in the dark, to be honest, but include:
K- Return of Kings.
. The source material for this series is a novel. It
. Here is a summary of the first season: “
In terms of carryovers from the previous season there are only two that I am following, Ushio to Tora (which is really, really good) and Go! Princess PreCure (also one of the stronger PreCure seasons thus far). There are a handful of shorts in the Fall 2015 season which look like they might work out to be interesting, including Komori-san wa Kotowarenai! (the 4koma manga is pretty good), Tantei Team KZ Jiken Note and Onsen Yousei Hakone-chan. Other than that an perhaps the occasional OVA special (like for Nagato Yuki-chan or Himouto! Umaru-chan) not a whole lot looks really engaging to me at the moment. Here’s hoping that I can be equally or even more pleasantly surprised than I was with the Summer 2015 season! At the moment I do not have a clear idea of which series I might take up to blog, but in any event I will definitely be doing the third Tamayura movie and the first Aria the Avvenire OVA. Definitely.
