I've erased this post 2 times already, and almost a 3rd.
2nd season of Ajin... I do wonder if they want to 'milk' it like Naruto or end it clean this season or not, as that will determine how the story progresses IMO. Like X-Men, this Ajin phenomenon seems to be growing, the problem isn't just the current one trying to take over.
Fune wo Amu is an adult story, WTF is it doing on this list?!?
about 2 guys working on some dictionary project... ? Rare to see anything about the adult world in this list.. is there another list it belongs on? Is this list, the entire list of anime for the season? Is such adult fare on a different list?
Time Bokan 24 in search of 'true history'... imagine if they dealt with our real secret history instead of what seems like just another mashup on the past in comic manner? Probably wouldn't make it past the censors... but with comedy, this has usually been accepted... court jesters, or the way the classic literature is used in repressive countries to illustrate present problems and simularities, this was big in communist times, as the archetypes never change, only we do.. or some of us.
I see a few reverse harem shows... guess I'm not their targeted audience.
Udon no Kuni no Kiniro Kemari seems very family friendly fare with a twist, could be fun SoL.
All Out! reminds me of that film Rudy a decade or two ago... maybe the short character is used like shorter running backs in American football? Or will be be a mascot and occassional 'secret weapon'? Able to sneak under the others feet?
Flip Flappers... again with the use of alternate dimensions, see that more and more these days as the transition approaches.
Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru... with 'historical revisionists' going back to change history as we know it.. seems an allusion to 4d actions that go on all the time... or so it is said.
Hibike! Euphonium has a 2nd season? did anyone check out the first? Not too often an anime is done with band students.
Of course, these are pretty types, but aren't they always in anime? if not in actual band class?
Long Riders... another one with college students... this seems like progress in Japanese anime! I always wondered why there wasn't more, if not for the most likely reason that at that age, you aren't watching as much tv etc.?
Drifters could be a fun action packed series if the comedy is like previous samurai characters in various comedy animes.
Yuri!!! on Ice sports anime... haven't seen on on the ice, otherwise, it sounds like the usual competition thing.
Girlish Number seems like an fantasy idol version of Sore ga Seiyuu! which i liked, found it to be entertaining while informative about the industry, and it had an aspect of this 'idol' aspect of the industry as well.
Shuumatsu no Izetta, the last witch based in 1940s battlefield? no summary yet, previous looked a little like that old German film... can't think of it... Metropolis... mixed with Nausicaa ... perhaps, hard to tell.... preview, though short, looked different.. and different is good!
Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku seems like the usual magical girl taken into the arena for The Hunger Games... from that summary anyway... could be different.
And speaking of magical girls, ViVid Strike! ... the next one without a plot summary is from the creator of Lyrical Nanoha.... which IMO is one of the best in that genre... still think the mention in series about her being attacked on that other planet would make a good insert series instead of a restart with younger cast. Hard to tell, but it was the drama of those characters situations that made the rest so good.... the abuse of the one by her mother etc. Maybe this is another one like that? Title works well, not only because it's in english, but titles are best kept short for advertising purposes, and most other mentions of the work in any form... and the image used here is good as well, like a good tease affect, even the hair is in motion, the face unseen... something that might have worked well for the other magical girl in HungerGames I just mentioned... Ikusei Keikaku.
Keijo!!!! seems like total fan service... reminds me of inhouse 'wrestling' done with girls in mud pits or jello and/or in bikinis etc.... just add the usual competition sports storyline and I smell hit or lots of T&A anyway!
Luger Code 1951... hard to tell on this one... explotive govt using impressionable genius teen to outwit the 'enemy'... I have to assume the govt is the bad guy and our genius teen only learns that late in the game? Maybe? maybe not, James Bond never has, nor any American super hero.. they stay death, dumb and blind to who they are working for/with. The Japanese don't really do that, though do they? Not seen the war anyway That said, the linguistic aspect sort of reminds me of that film a decade or so ago about the use of the Navajo language as code.... Windtalkers.
ClassicaLoid... sounds like a hodgepodge of various storylines... who knows on this one, good thing it's a comedy.... guess it has to be... or would it be better as a drama???
Sangatsu no Lion sounds family friendly fare again, but of course, our MC is living alone.... only in Japan, right?
Well to be fair... at 17, there have been a few models and actors that have lived that way with their parents approval...
Stella no Mahou... sounds different for this genre.... SoL... comedy about making friends in a club isn't new, just perhaps this take on the club making doujin games... is that really done in high school? just wondering... some schools might have all kinds of clubs in the bigger cities, especially if aligned or close to an industry/business nearby that specializes in this... sort of like training for entry level work nearby. Could be interesting if such real world aspects in the world setup are added in.
Lostorage... has no summary, anyone see the Wixcoss series it's part of?
An OVA of Non Non Biyori... I liked that rural series... typical in many ways, original in some others... and it does come down to those little original bits.
Guess I missed that series, now offering an OVA... anyone see it? I wouldn't be expecting too much really. :unsure=========
Planetarian has a movie coming out?? is it a compilation of the series? September? Will the current series be done by then?... guess it will...
The Red Turtle... ??? it's Ghibli... even their 'misses' are better than most other stuff.
Ajin: Shougeki... is this a film that will comprise most of the upcoming 2nd season like last time?
Kono Sekai no Katasumi ni... (Wiki) In This Corner of the World is a manga series written and illustrated by Fumiyo Kōno which ran from 2007 to 2009 in Weekly Manga Action. It follows the life of Suzu Urano, a young bride with her new family living on the outskirts of Kure City during the Second World War..... could be interesting SoL.
