Fall 2014 Anime Preview

As always, I did no research whatsoever. Click to see the full version.

I read some advice about how to write a good season preview, which was all completely wrong, so I had to get this post out as a demonstration. “Step 5: Actually Write the Post” was particularly terrible advice.


Some highlights:

  • Some awesome sequels next season. Psycho Pass, Log Horizon, and Chaika. I’m especially excited for more Chaika!
  • A new Fate / Stay Night?!! Retelling both the TV series and the movie! From Rin’s perspective, too, which should give them plenty of creative license to deviate from the visual novel. I’m still pissed that they haven’t animated Heaven’s Feel, but this is pretty good too. The first TV show sucked so this one pretty much has to be better than the original. Although the Unlimited Blade Works movie was pretty good.
  • Terra Formars was supposed to be good so I checked out the manga. I wasn’t too impressed. Basically a lot of people die after fighting giant cockroach men using insect powers. I can’t figure out what all the hype was about…
  • A new slapstick show by KyoAni, Amagi Brilliant Park. Hopefully it can approach the genius of Nichijou.
  • We also have various mecha and fantasy shows which I’m looking forward to. And a TV series from Studio Ghibli and a new Gundam show from Tomino.

A lot to look forward to next season!

Spring 2014 Anime Preview

As usual, I did no research whatsoever. Click to view the full size image.


Basically, next season looks AMAZING. We have JoJo’s part three. We have Ping Pong, which I heard is supposed to be good. We have at least FOUR AWESOME LOOKING MECHA SHOWS. We have FOUR FANTASY SHOWS that sound promising. We have three crazy game / assassination shows. We have Date A Live II. And the premise for Ishuukan Friends sounds pretty cool.

Judging solely from the premises and individual images, this is going to be the best season we’ve had in years. Please don’t let me be immediately proven wrong.

I cropped off the OVAs and movies since the image was especially huge this year. Highlights:

  • NouCome OVA! Sweet!
  • Final Gundam Unicorn Episode! Awesome!
  • Girls und Panzer Special Episode! Yay!
  • Chuunibyou special episode. Not bad.
  • Tamako Love Story movie. Should be good.
  • Sora no Otoshimono Final movie! Yee-hah!
