AOTS – Anime Of This Summer

First of all, thanks for the donations. We’ve invested in some additional hardware to hopefully speed things up. We’ll also be resuming ripping M3 since we figured out a way to rip from Daisuki (after a year or so!).

Back to the main point: this season is pretty good. The only show that stood out last season was No Game No Life. The rest were meh. This season, however, have multiple shows that I deem worthwhile to watch:

  1. Aldnoah.Zero – Despite being an SAO fanboy, I have to say Aldnoah is the best show this season. It’s rare that I actually look forward to the day this show comes out. You should definitely check this out. The characters, the setting, and the score are all very refreshing.
  2. Sword Art Online II – Well, it’s SAO.
  3. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun – This parody of the shoujo genre is hilarious. If you enjoy good anime comedy, check this out.
  4. Ao Haru Ride – Your typical shoujo, but a really good one. The manga is extremely popular in Japan.
  5. Zankyou no Terror – Watanabe-sensei’s (Cowboy Bebop, Sakamichi no Apollon, etc) work. The setting and art seems really good. However, if you live in the US, you might want to stay away from this show. You don’t want the FBI counter-terrorism unit to show up at your door!
  6. Tokyo Ghoul – Blah blah blah. Hype???
  7. Barakamon – Heard this is really good.
  8. Akame ga Kill!/Hanayamata/Locodol  – Your moe shows of this seas– wait, maybe I’m wrong.

tl;dr Watch Aldnoah.Zero.

Another Unforgettable Summer Season (Hopefully)

Summer season has already begun a few days ago, but today is when the majority of the shows will start coming out (ones that matter to me, anyway).

Here are some shows that I’m going to pay attention to:

  • Sword Art Online II – GGO is a great arc, and I think they will also animate Mother’s Rosario, which is the best arc in the SAO series.
  • Aldnoah.Zero – Gen Urobuchi show, and it doesn’t seem like it’ll end up like another Gargantia.
  • Glasslip – Your seasonly P.A. Works show.
  • Akame ga Kill! – This seems to be hyped, but I don’t know why.
  • Tokyo Ghoul – This seems to be hyped, but I know why: manchildren likes these type of zombie shows, and manchildren also like anime

I’ll post an updated list when more shows start airing. The only show last season worth watching as NGNL, unfortunately. Here’s to hope that we get more worthwhile series this season!

P.S.  It’s customary that we beg for money at the beginning of each season so that we can pay for our servers and stuff. I’ve put the donate button up again, so donate if you can, or sit back and enjoy if you don’t want to.
