We're only a couple of weeks away from the new season. Time once again to read through the lists and pick waaay more shows than you can reasonably keep up with :sweat:

At a glance, it seems we have a lot of "franchise" shows this season - Garo, Gundams and a lot of second seasons. But there are some new entries too.
 
Wait, the new Fate is about UBW? And here I thought that the new anime will cover Heavens Feel. I think that will be the only one that I watch.
 
There will a Fate series for UBW and a movie for HF.

The only things, which have my intrest are Log Horizon 2nd Series and this new Garo anime. But I guess I check out both Gundam Series and PP2, when they're fully out.

P.S. Personally more excited for Transformers Prime sequel.

That reminds me I must get around to watching the first Fate/Stay Night anime at some point. :hmm:

There are four 'must see' shows for me - Garo: The Carved Seal of Flames (I wasn't actually very impressed by the teaser but hey, it's Garo), Mushi-shi series 2 part 2, Psycho-Pass 2, and Gundam: G no Reconguista (dependant upon how stand-alone it is as I haven't seen beyond the original season of the franchise yet).

Hi☆sCoool! SeHa Girl is a series of shorts based upon anthropomorphised Sega consoles, so I might check that out just to see if it triggers any nostalgia from playing my Sega Mega Drive as a kid. :sweat:

Anything beyond that is very much dependant on how much free time I have but I have an initial long list of 'maybes' just based on the summaries on the charts. I'll probably watch their trailers closer to the time, maybe give some of them the 'three episodes trial', with an idea of picking up just one more.

^Fate/ anime are trash, I'd recommend not suffering through them like I did.

As for this since I am not caught up with Garo beyond that one hour movie about horror flutes I will not be seeing that right away. The two gundam series I'll eventually watch although I am extremely iffy with G-Reco since Tomino has lost his touch after Victory. The only anime on there I'd watch right away is the new Gargantia OVAs. Cross Ange makes me uneasy.

The Fate/ anime have decent action. Fate/Zero is a depressing dreck.

I'm just waiting for Log Horizon 2 and the 2 Gundams. Not too excited about G-Reco either but at least it looks great.

EDIT: The hell, they made a Rage of Bahamut anime. Oh, and for a second there I thought there was a new Tenchi Muyo.

The Gundam shows
Cross Ange - maybe...not much interest for me this season... :(

Buddy complex ending witha 2 episode special kinda sucks too, just should have made a full season!!! I was spoiled with mecha animes these past 2 seasons :/

No real interest in the Garo ANime, as it apparently, just retells 1st season. Meh.
AT least Akame ga kill should continue. Other shows I'm watching now are all about to end...

Eh, I though the major characters of Fate/Zero kinda deserved what happened to them anyway. Or at least that Waver was the most well-adjusted person, and the only one to make it out in good shape. And most of them needed to have something horrible happen to them since they don't show up in Stay Night.

I don't find the first Fate anime to be that bad, it's decent at best though. If you already watch or play Fate/Stay Night, you'll pretty much expect that the Zero casts will all die except for Kirei and Gilgamesh. Heck, you'll know that Tokiomi and Kariya are going to die just by reading their backstory. Waver not dying is actually a twist.

I'm also interested in that Sega anime though, I'm a sucker for idiotic comedy series. Now, I wonder if Tsuburaya going to follow the trend and make an anime of their Kaiju Moe Gijinka Project.

Well, yeah, it's a given considering how Stay Night begins.

It's more that none of the major characters started out likeable or relatable. And when they actually get some semblance of humanity in them, they die.

That was the initial rumour but the summaries coming out now describe it as being set in the middle ages, with a story about a boy who wants to enlist the aid of the golden knight in order to re-take his father's kingdom. The golden knight isn't a member of the Saigima family either. So it sounds like it will be different.

Me too. I've really liked Mobile Suit Gundam-san, which has been airing this current season. Two minute long episodes that are very funny re-imaginings of scenes from that series. And as I mentioned, I had a Mega Drive as a kid and the 16-bit era was probably where my interest in video games was at it's peak, so anything that can callback to that will be fun.

Apologies for the double post <(_ _)>

Crunchyroll has begun announcing their fall lineup and the first title to be revealed is Terraformars.
 
no sticky for this season?

and well, maybe I was wrong in them continuing ongoing shows while the new season rolls out. Looks like Argevollen is on a break with Aldnoah/Zero, unless it's just taking a week off today. I'll see on Sunday though.

And judging from the last PV for Garo, looks like it is different, so I'll watch it.

So far, my anime for this new season are like this (in order of personal interest): Garo, Build Fighters Try, and Reconguista in G.

Is Anichart even correct on anything? THey have Tatsunoko Productions listed for Psycho Pass 2 even though it is Production IG.

I'll be watching the new Build Fighters series, Terraformars(which I know next to nothing about, it just sounds interesting), and Garo(because I guess I have Garo Stockholm syndrome). I'll also give Cross Ange a try even though I'm about 85% sure it will be terrible.

Also G-Reco in hopes that it will be so bad it's good. I suppose I can't miss out on what may well be the most Tomino piece of fiction ever to be created.
 
saw the first episode of Terraformars, and, idk, I just didn't get that, "I want to see what happens in the next episode" vibe, that and I don't particularly like the the designs

I thought Karen Senki sounded quite interesting based on it's description on the charts, but I've just watched the trailer and all the characters look like they have been lifted straight out of RWBY, and that visual style just grates with me for some reason :disappoin

I think I might give Danna ga Nani o Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken ('I can't understand what my husband is saying') a try if it gets any subs. Apparently it's a series of five minute long skits about an office lady and her otaku husband (who is voiced by Ryutaros).

you mean the 11 minute thing of karen senki? yeah, the animation is something I'm not a fan of, & hopefully that wasn't the actual 1st episode either because...it's just basically a girl in chinese clothing fighting robots that want to kill her. Doesn't give that much of a story right now.

I didn't know there was an 11 minute thing for Karen Senki. I just meant the standard trailer that crunchyroll had put up along with the announcement that they'd be streaming it. Either way it didn't thrill me lol.
