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.
