[Jas] Fall Anime Preview

[JT's note:  I am slowly coming to the realization it is all but impossible to go through and edit Jas's posts...  what with here random exclamations apparent A.D.D. So, I'm honestly not going to try too hard.  You all are going to suffer with me ;) ]

The leaves are changing, the skies are cloudy, and…and…SWEATER WEATHER HAS ARRIVEEDDDD~~!!!!!1!!! Also, just about as important to note, the new fall animes are debuting on streaming websites all over the place! Here, to tell you how I feel while wearing 12 sweaters is I!!

Let’s get started shall we? If you read my summer anime preview, then you know all about the faces I use to judge shows, but for you newbies I’ll go over the list again!
My rating scale: 
Love it!    ()
Like it!  ()
It’s all right.  (・_・)
Ehhhh. ( ̄~ ̄;
Doubt it.   ( ;)
No way. ( _ )

Look kids, Akito is creepy smirking!
Code Geass: Boukoku no Akito: Well, I’ve seen the orginal Code Geass, and I liked it a lot!! The ending was so depressing though….like all endings end up being. I DON’T LIKE WHEN GOOD THINGS END! ;A; But…enough about old Code Geass…this is new Code Geass with Akito the Exile! (Sometimes I hate Dailymotion….DAMN ADS) The girl is cute :3 Hell, all the girls are pretty cute. Also…pretty wicked sweet mecha fights right from the get go! MMMmmmm I’m liking this so far, yes very much so.  Akito is awesome and so is the girl Lelia/Relia~~~ Also, that ending song…mmmm so nice and relaxing!
This is a type of OVA, and the second chapter is scheduled to be aired sometime in spring of 2013. ;A; SUCH A LONG WAIT NUU!!!

Also guys, this is NOT a sequal or ANYTHING! This is set BETWEEN R1 and R2 of the original!!! Okay? Good. Everyone’s got it.

Will I watch more? () I can’t wait for the next episode to come out in spring! EEEEEEEE~~

I understand your feels
Shinsekai Yori: OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG YES SO MUCH YES!! I can’t even. The beginning was enough to make me want to watch more….legit. Very interesting so far, set in the future, and it follows a group of friends. OH CATS?! CAT SPIRITS?! I have a feeling this is going to be a horror-esque anime, which greatly excites me! After Another, I’ve always wanted more horror animes to come out!

Will I watch more? () UHM YES! So far this seems very promising and I can’t wait to see what comes from it! I love scary things and also things that mention kitties. So far I’m excited for the fall animes! Wheee!

The leads~~
Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun: I like the art so far, and the opening which always a good thing. The characters all look really cute. (Cosplay feels already) The school uniforms are just adorable and bright! Hehehe!! OMG I LOVE HARU~~~ I CAN’T EVEN RIGHT NOW OMG I’M AFNAJKFNKAJFNJKAFNJKASMADL  YES I love Shoujo things and I can totally tell I’m going to love this!!  OMG THIS IS ALREADY SO BEAUTIFUL I WANT!

All the men want her UNF
Hiiro no Kakera Dai Ni Shou: Well, I’ve never seen the first season of this called Hiiro no Kakera, so I don’t really understand what it’s really about. But I can gather it’s a reverse harem already, just from the opening and little intro hahaha! Well at least the men are really cute. I’m a little confused though, I feel like I should watch season 1 first if I want to watch season 2. Well, this episode does give some flashbacks to clear up some confusion. It seems to be rather slow though, not very fast paced at all. I can’t even begin to explain all of these flashbacks…I don’t think I’ve seen a second season first episode with so many flashbacks before.  Also, same villains from season 1 look like they will be in season 2…at least that’s what I’m gathering from the flashbacks. Man I feel like I watched the whole first season in this episode or something….

Will I watch more? (・_・) Well, obviously I’d have to watch season 1 first. I’m not sure if I’m totally drawn in though, the second season first episode has a lot of flashbacks, aka when the lead girl met all the harem guys. Even though I’d like a man harem in real life, animes with them don’t interest me too much. The men are always so clichéd and you ALWAYS know who she is going to pick in like the first few episodes, so it isn’t that fun.

Hayate no Gotoku! (Can’t Take my Eyes off You!): Oh my goodness I do not understand at all what is going on! This is apparently an independent series and is NOT a sequel to the original. I haven’t seen the previously aired series, but apparently that shouldn’t be a big deal….I think. Since this is independent. Though, it would probably be a good idea….hmmm~ (Man these mirrors are HATING on me today :< ) Well, it seems like a comedy with a little romance and a bit of action. It’s not really my style though. The art isn’t really my style either.

Will I watch more? (・_・) I don’t really think so. Maybe in a passing fancy, but it won’t be on my list. If I watched anything it would be one of the previously run prequels before watching this one. Or if I get bored and feel like I want to watch something.

Omg they are just too cute XD
Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!: About…8th grader syndrome? LOL oh my goodness, I’m pretty sure I had that too…back when I was in 8th grade (Oh god that was forever ago) but this looks hilariously cute so far! I just have a thing for girls with eye patches honestly~ hehehe~ oh my goodness, my middle school life pretty much mimics mine, this is glorious! OMG I LOVE THIS!!! I LOVE THIS SO MUCH! THIS IS GOING TO BE AMAZING!!!  LOL COLORED CONTACTTSSS!!!! Literally can this be my life? (I say that about everything) This is going to be super cute though, a slice of life comedy!

Will I watch more? () UHM YES INDEED! My wicked eye has reacted to this show! My eyeeeee!!! Hehehehhehe~ I can’t say no to an adorable girl with an eye patch who has 8th grader syndrome! XD squuueealllllll!!! The fall is certainly gearing up to be a wonderful season indeed!!

My husband *3* ~~ chuuuu
Gintama: IT HAS RETURNED!! I won’t even bother really reviewing this one…cause well……Gin is my husband (and body pillow on my bed) so yeah. Now we all know my feelings on this show coming back with another season. Excuse me while I go cuddle with my pillow. NJgknkangkangjakgnakgnajkgnajgnaksgn my dreams have all come true~~~ DON’T YOU WORRY GIN I LIKE YOU MORE THAN KIN ANYDAY COME INTO MY ARMS!!!!!!!!!!!  YOUR SILVER IS MUCH MORE BEAUITFUL INDEED!!!! *explodes into a firey mass of love*

Litchi DE Hikari Club: So, I’ve read this manga and OMG terrifying and glorious all at the same time! It’s a great read, I recommend it TOTALLY! Go read it! (Well, unless you don’t like horror…then don’t read it) So, obviously when I see that it’s getting an anime I got excited…though it wasn’t at all like what I was expecting. It’s a 2:30 min long chibi-type comedy sketch anime. That really isn’t my style for animes…so I doubt I’ll really watch more of it.

Will I watch more?  (・_・Probably not, though it’s super short and clearly won’t take up much time. Maybe I’ll go back and watch it just for the laughs but it obviously won’t be a fore runner in my viewing list…considering it wasn’t what I wanted it to be at all. D:

Super hot slam downs coming your way!
Zetsuen no Tempest: Magic, hot boys, and a cute girl stranded on an isolated island. I think this is going to be an interesting series! I love the two main boys, mmmmm yes magic wielding men might be my favs! For a first episode it went pretty fast, already put up a cliff hanger that means I HAVE to watch the second episodes. Plus, there is revenge, and I have a soft spot for revenge.

Will I watch more? () I do believe that I will be tuning into this baby in the future! It looks promising and I’m liking all the character designs as of now. Hehehe!

K: Let me tell you something…I hate it when people send me back one letter texts with ‘k’. So….right from the beginning, before I even clicked on the button, that was the only thought in my head.  Gangsters? LOL omg I love hearing English in animes I feel like I actually have to listen to understand what they are saying!! ALSO….adorable Lolita girl!! Eeeeehhhhh~~ Supernatural gangsters?! There are just no normal gangsters nowadays I suppose. I am so confused. I do like the angles they use during the skateboarding scenes though….awesome!

Will I watch more? (・_・)  Uhmmmmm I’m not sure….I can’t tell if I’m going to like it or not. It seems like it’s rather complex….maybe I’ll give it a try, but I’m not sure yet or not. Perhaps, but I’ll have to think about it….though there is a cute cat…..mmmmm cats

Yes you are, you whiny bitch
Btooom!: Okay, the name of this series itself had me interested. It just sounds so funny to say aloud.
[JT's note: Btooom, btooom... Gotcha.]  So, the first few seconds and I feel like I’m watching a war game or something…..oh….well that’s because I am.  So this is pretty much about a popular video game, and the lead character is an antisocial hermit with pretty much no real life outside the game world. Annnnd now it feels like I’m watching LOST or something. Yep LOST. WELL NOW I KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON ALL RIGHT WELL NOW!!! The lead man appears to be a moron……

Will I watch more? () Certainly interesting and a little freaky, with the whole bomb thing. It still reminds me of LOST though…well, only a little bit now. Video games IN REAL LIFE!!!!! Well…I think I will keep watching this. It’s like LOST meets Battle Royale…with video games.

To LOVE-Ru Darkness: Okay, so here is one that I actually DID start watching the prequel! Granted, I never actually finished the prior season though. I loved the character designs, the girls were adorable, but….I just couldn’t get into the story. It’s still the normal harem anime with tons of cute girls and ecchi-ness to be had all around. It’s a little too over the top sometimes and the plot line is rather bland, kinda generic in my opinion…well…like most ecchi animes tend to be. Remember children…there is “mild” nudity in this here show.

Will I watch more? (・_・) I doubt it…I don’t think I can really get into this series. It’s ecchi, so I’m sure some of you out there will like it haha! Granted I do like mild nudity and panties and all, but I like panties with story lines. Soooo…I’m going to be passing on season 2 this time around.

Could you say no to those girls??! 
Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb: Same art as Madoka. Totally MOOOEEEEEE~~~~~ OMG EVERYTHING IS BLINDINGLY ADORABLE!  Girl crushesss~ Just a super adorable slice of life silly anime. No action, nothing super natural, just relaxing moe girls doing moe things and what not.

Will I watch more? ( ̄~ ̄;Nope. I like cuteness, but animes like this really aren’t my style. It is super adorable though! There just isn’t enough going on the really catch my attention…such a shame.

I want my master to be more attractive (burn)
Busou Shinki: Immeditately I started thinking of CLAMP. Kinda like….Chobits meets Angelic Layer. Def WAAAAYYY more like Angelic Layer than Chobits though. But instead of being called Angels, they are called Shinki. I love CLAMP, like more than life itself..but this is not CLAMP, so I feel a little cheated. :I I’m not a huge fan of the art style either really….but maybe I’m just not giving it a chance by not liking it immediately after like the first 4 minutes…. >_> The lead guy is plain/boring looking and stereotype glasses man with a super cute mini chobit/angel oh wait…I mean Shinki. Of course…more mini girls show up. He has like a mini robot girl harem…>_> Yeahhhhh!

Will I watch more? ( _ ) Nope. Nada. I don’t know…I just don’t like it. It really isn’t my style at all. Just…..I don’t know. I didn’t like it when the intro started. I don’t think I’ll be watching this one at all…instead maybe I’ll re-watch me some Angelic Layer.

looks like me everyday
Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo ne: oh my gawd huge title right there! And cue adorable little girl who is just too damn adorable for her own good. I’M HOME BIG BROTHER!!!! And then cue incest moments with mildly uninterested older brother and sexually mischievous younger sister! Oh come on you saw it coming…I mean Onii-chan is in the title for petes sake, we all know what that means. And now cue multiple cute ladies entering the picture aka cue romantic love rivals. Harem time START!

Will I watch more? () Hahahahhahah I don’t even. All I can think of is that this would make a wonderful hentai…cue Fakku reading! LOL Like legit, first 10 min = the intro for most steamy incest hentai mangas. Granted, I’m an only child so I don’t understand sibling things at all bahaha! Well, as far as harem animes go, I do like the whole situation with the little sister thing and the aggressive women in this harem…. Well…perhaps I’ll give this harem one a go-go this season…..perhaps! (For above reasons though I doubt that I’ll actually finish it)

Oh shit son!!!
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (2012): A remake of a popular anime that I’m pretty sure people told me to watch like 1 million times, but I never actually got around to watching the original.  The animation style isn’t something I’m keen on, it’s super Shonen. Also..super creepy ass mask. Oh my goodness I don’t know if I can handle these characters….oh my gaawwwdddd. Dio is just a dick face! A GIANT DICK FACE I DON’T EVEN UNDERSTAND! Everything is so overly dramatic in this.

Will I watch more? ( ;) I doubt it. Like I completely doubt it. I don’t know if I can handle the intense shounen characters and overly dramatic…well….everything about this anime.

Little Busters!: Interesting high school setting in the beginning with a fight breaking out, but like a friendly fight between bros. A group of child hood friends that call themselves ‘Little Busters’ and who you know “vanquish evil” and do other adorable things as children. Lonely little boy joins this group and becomes one of them. The girl is covered in cats…..I like her. I swear there is a cat in like almost every anime this season….I like it. Also, there seems like a nice boy to girl ratio! Comedy runs amok. [JT's note:  Awh...  it has nothing to do with FLCL? :( ]

Will I watch more? (・_・)  “Even cats fall from poles.” Probably the best quote from the entire first episode. Not going to lie. Also, Kyousuke is like my life soul mate or something. Soooo…I find it hard to make an actual judgment on this show based solely on the first episode. Clearly, I think it’s a slice of life comedy about kids getting ready to face the real world after high school and trying to make the most of their time together before they might go their separate ways. But, I’m not sure if I’ll really like it or not yet.

burn, baby, buuurrrnnn
Code:Breaker: Clearly supernatural, within like the first few seconds + hot boy. Whoa now, the lead girl is bold, intense, a little socially behind the times, and cute! She stumbles into something that she shouldn’t and BAM, cue the transfer student with amazing acting skills. This looks interesting and leaves off at a cliffhanger. It leaves a pretty good amount in the dark and revealed just enough to make want to watch more.

Will I watch more? () I think I’m going to HAVE to watch episode 2! I like supernatural things and there seems to be some kind of revenge thing going on with the lead guy. This seems like it will end up being interesting, so I think I’m going to give it a go go go this season!

How to start a confession!!
Sukitte Iinayo (Say I love you): I’ve been keeping up with this currently on-going shoujo manga and I LOVE IT! I actually had my hair cut like the main girl for a while…like legit…I brought in a picture of her from the manga and asked my stylist to cut my hair like it. (She was a little freaked out) So anyways, enough about the manga, let’s look at the anime! Another girl with a …you guessed it…CAT!! :3 So, it’s pretty much about a girl who has been bullied and hasn’t had any friends for 16 years and she has convinced herself that she doesn’t want any friends because then she will only be hurt. Now she’s in high school! So, as in most shoujo, now you cue the attractive most popular guy in school that doesn’t think like the other guys and thinks she is interesting.

Will I watch more? () UHM YES! Loved the manga, can’t wait to see if the anime lives up to it!! I love Mei, she is one of my favorite shoujo girls! Eeeeeee I love her!! I kinda know where she is coming from, it’s not like I got bullied really, but I didn’t have many friends at all as a child and preferred to be aloof. I’m just so excited for the anime!!!!!!!!!!~~~~~

Magi: I cosplayed from this without even reading the manga prior. I still don’t know all that much about it, rather than all the boys look adorable. So this anime is pretty much going to be me learning about the character I cosplayed back during the summer LOL! (I probably shouldn’t be admitting to that) oh my goodness….”Why does this man have boobs?” perfect. Pure perfection. I do believe I am going to enjoy this anime. (Plus, my bestest friend/lover/husband told me to read the manga) OH MY GOD THAT UGO OH MY GOOD LORD I CAN’T EVEN!!!!!!!

Will I watch more? () Oh my goodness, I love the character I cosplayed already, he is freaking adorable.  So interesting! I’m liking where this is going, it certainly seems like it will be a fun anime with action and comedy! BE MY FRIEND!!!

I loved this much ;3;
Bakuman Season 3: I’ve read this whole manga and LOVED IT TO DEATH! I’m pretty sure I cried at one point…I cry more while reading manga than I do at pretty much any other time. Also, I’ve watched seasons 1 and 2 of this anime, just to see if they live up to the manga. It’s doing all right so far :3 If you’ve never seen/heard of Bakuman before, it follows the dreams of two boys trying to become mangka for JUMP. The story was written by the creator of death note, and I adore his art style! It’s realistic, romantic, and hilarious! I really loved the series and the anime is rather good as well, but, well, I always love the mangas more~ XD

Will I watch more? () I’ll probably come back to it later, maybe after it’s finished and watch it all at once. I’ve already read the manga, so I’d like to watch the anime, but with so many new series that I haven’t read or seen before, I’ll give them priority over this one!

Can I just be this girl??
Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo: Cats are like the most recurring theme ever this season…I can’t even. It’s like this isn’t the fall anime list but the CAT anime season list. OH PANTY SHOT FIRST THING IN THE MORNING! Cute panties too. All the characters in this are LOONY! (I’d fit right in) Seems like this is going to be a romance-type anime, set in high school, with a normal boy and a girl who is a little bit strange.  And it seems like each of the characters either has something to do with anime or manga. EECCCHHIII!! Now this is an ecchi anime that I could probably get into!!

Will I watch more? () You know….I think I might. Especially cause of the cats being important and the girl being super adorable and drawing awesome manga. I mean come on, that’s just awesome. Who wouldn’t want that? I would/do. Yep. I like this a lot! I will watch it!

Uchurei!: From the thumbnail itself I don’t think I’ll really like this. I don’t think I can handle the art style. The lines are all wobbly and what not. Also…those facial expressions. It’s like anime tried to go Adventure Time but it just didn’t quite work out the way they planned or something. Also….this is super weird…I mean like…super super super weird. Aliens? Weird creepy aliens. What.

Will I watch more? ( _ ) Nope nope nope. Nope nope nope nope. That’s all I can say about it.

And my mind is in the gutter.....
Girls und Panzer: Und ist totally german, which I speak, so that interested me right off the bat. Whoa. What? Interesting camera angles for sure. School girls in tanks? A pink tank? A yellow tank? What even is this?? Omg random german. Ach ja! Du sprechen bitte Deutsch? Sehr gut! Granted, I can totally tell that the subber is just throwing in random german subs because they are still speaking Japanese. Apparently having little school girls with weapons in like a new fad or something. This reminds me of that other show…Upotte!!? Where the girls were guns. Reading the german subs sure made me smile though! Hehe!

Will I watch more? ( ̄~ ̄;THE POOR GIRL DOESN’T WANNA DO PANZERFAHREN! LEAVE MIHO ALONE! WAHHH!! Anyways. The girls are cute. The story makes 0 sense to me at the moment. The subs have random german words thrown in. Being in a tank makes you a woman. Just so you know. But….nope, I don’t think I can handle this anime. I can’t. LOL NOPE!

Kamisama Hajimemashita: Girl left homeless by her gambling and good-for-nothing-father. She’s cute though! So she saves a beautiful glasses man who tells her to move into this place, but then runs into a SUPER FUCKING SEXY FOX DEMON and becomes a Deity! Interesting!

Will I watch more? () I do believe that I like this….it’s interesting. Also Fox Demon is super sexy and I can’t even handle it!! It looks like it will be adorable…but the site I normally watch my anime on isn’t hosting it…so I’ll have to remember to switch sites to watch it (which I’ll probably forget to do >_> but I’ll try to remember!)

So. Much. Pink. 
Aikatsu!: Moe girls in adorable dresses that are in middle school. The girl becomes what…….an Idol! For a second I thought it was going to be a magical girl and I was going to be a little more excited (I have a soft spot for magical girls) Though it looks like getting dressed = a magical girl transformation pretty much. So the two friends and the one girl’s little brother head to an idol concert for the first time. It mixes CG and traditional animation. Being an idol = a children’s card game XD LOL So they apply for an idol academy.

Will I watch more? ( ̄~ ̄;Uhm, nope. I don’t know, I’ve just had enough idol animes for a while. It didn’t seem like anything special and didn’t catch my attention like AKB0048 had a few seasons ago or anything.

First thing I thought: Scar's child??!?
Jormungand: Perfect Order: This is the second season to Jormungand. Well, let’s start with the normal statement that I haven’t seen season 1, so I pretty much know nothing about this. No one has told me about it either, and all I know is what I just looked up on, which is that it’s about the arms market and a child solider. So obviously I’d have to watch season 1 to really be able to start watching season 2.  It seems interesting though.

Will I watch more? () I’m not sure….I might…but at the same time I can’t really tell if it will be up my alley or not. I like Koko though, she seems really intense….so maybe…maybe at some point I will start watching season 1 and see what this whole thing really is all about!

First car at age, like 10. Normal. 
Chousoku Henkei Gyrozetter: Mecha right off the bat. This is a normal shounen type show, kinda like Yu-Gi-Oh and the like, but with Mecha. The lead is clichéd with silly hair and an obnoxious voice. You learn to drive these automotive cars when you are apparently a child. >_> Yeah. I don’t even know. Yep. He wants to be a hero. Omg no. I don’t think I can handle this one.

Will I watch more? ( ;) Yeahhhh nooooooo. I just can’t get into it. It seems like it would have been a show picked up by Cartoon Network or something. Too clichéd for my liking this season.

Violence is a no-no kids!!
Medaka Box Abnormal: I started watching the first season of Medaka Box, but I quit after only a few episodes. I don’t know, it just didn’t hook me in like others had.  It’s pretty much about a girl who is extremely smart and gifted. Seems like there is a lot of action as well in this. Maybe I should have given it a shot back when season 1 was out? I think I’d need to watch season 1 to acutally understand. Oh man, all these people look redic. XD God those tits. So basically there are three types of students: Normals, Specials, and Abnormals. The lead girl, Medaka is an Abnormal. Hmmm…interesting.

Will I watch more? () Perhaps I’ll watch season 1 all the way through this time around. It certainly seems like it will be interesting indeed. Perhaps I’ll ram my way through the first season so that I can see if the second season is worth it or not.

So that concludes the fall animes that I previewed this season! There were so many! x_x I thought my head was going to explode or something. (Or maybe it already has, what do I know?) So anyways, after all that...let's see what is going on my to-watch list for the fall season!!!

To Watch List:
1. Gintama
2. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
3. Shinsekai Yori
4. Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!

6. Btooom!
