Spring 2015

Spring 2015

This is the big one. The one you’ve all been waiting for. This is the hype season.

(I didn’t post the stuff from last season, but, uh, I guess Parasyte, Your Lie in April, Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! all made the list, and I’m now catching up on Log Horizon.)

Maximum Hype

  • Fate/stay night Unlimited BudgetBlade Works. If you haven’t already seen the first season, you do not deserve to be reading this list.
  • Nisekoi (continued).
  • The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan. The “alternate universe” style refocused anime based on a spin-off manga story. I may just own all the official English manga, and be a big Haruhi fan besides. It’s interesting that KyoAni turned this down; it’ll be animated by Satelight.
  • Ghost in the Shell: Arise (TV Anime). Not much detail, but the hype is real. GiTS makes a return to TV, but will it be SaC good?
  • Hello! Kin-iro Mosaic. More silly Engrish in this sequel. Ridiculous cute guaranteed.

Could probably use more hype than it has

  • Plastic Memories. Sci-fi story involving the collection and disposal of end-of-life androids. Has potential to be a touching story if pulled off well. If not, it’s off to the moe android junkyard.

Some Hype

  • Hibike! Euphonium. Reason: KyoAni.
  • Ninja Slayer. Reason: Trigger. But I dunno if I’ll keep up, it doesn’t seem like my fav. genre based on key art.
  • Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha ViVid. It’s been ages since the first two Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha series, and Strikers was such a let down. Will this new refocused anime based on an spin-off manga story pick the series back up again?
  • More Gintama. To be honest, I haven’t actually seen anything but bits and pieces of the series, but it seems like I could probably pick it up now without too much issue. Maybe catch up later

Anti-hype

I’m sure there are people who were looking forwards to them. But they’re not me.

  • Digimon Adventures. I’m sure there are lots of people who will watch and enjoy this. But I’m probably not gonna watch it, and therefore will never know whether I would have enjoyed it.
  • Battle Spirits Burning Soul. Not another trading card game anime.
  • Takamiya Nasuno Desu!. I’m not sure how they’re making another season of Teekyuu, let alone this spin-off series. Although… I’m not really one to say: I watched the entire Teekyuu series on Crunchyroll.

You’re probably hyped about different things than me. That’s too bad, but feel free to let me know what they might be…
