The summer season inspires graduation hats, tequila on the beach and days where it´s just too hot to function, but for us weaboo trash and sarcastic bloggersalike, Summer also means a new season of anime and, usually, a fuck ton of nights consisting of marathoning an entire series in 3 and a half hours. So with the Spring season sliding into its final week, we´re gonna start hyping up and kicking down the new season of summer loving.
Akagami no Shirayuki-hime
Snowhite With the Red Hair is a strange title to begin with, but hopefully BONES attempt at cheesy fantasy romance will be a little more succesful than everything Pierrot has done with the infamous Pokemon the Harem, better known as Akatsuki no Yona. I´ve heard about the manga before, and while this isn´t really the kind of romance I get into, I´ll defintely watch it.
Aoharu x Kikanjuu
This one is so up my alley, I´m actually kind of scared to properly look forward to it – pretty boys and guns? this might just be Ouran Highschool with action. One way or another, Brains Base is producing this, so I´m sure it will be decent.
Chaos Dragon: Sekiryuu Sen’eki
Shit, that was some unexpected badass epic music – if only the anime could be like this. Is this a second season of something, or do all fantasy harems with white haired loli just look like one another? I´m not even being sarcastic, I honestly don´t know.
From the people who brought you Clannad, Air, Kanon and Angel Beats, we get Charlotte, an anime produced by P.A Works, which is a terrible choice judging by Little Busters (also by Key) but even more noticeable after watching the PV, because God damn, this is not nearly as beautiful as everything else P.A has done in the past 2 years. What´s with the undetailed faces? backgrounds? movements? They should honestly just collaborate with Kyoani again and all will be good with the world. Regardless, I´ll watch.
Generic highschool hijinks with a pilot twist? at least the protagonist seems to be a female, meaning that maybe she can save the day rather than being the ditzy sidekick pilot who´s too scared to move without the permission of her alledged boyfriend. I´ll skip this one.
Durarara!! continues to shine in its own urban fairytale glory, this season seems to be the climax of the whole entire show, so I´m definitely, definitely excited. I just love Durarara, man, even more than Baccano.
Speaking of hype, Gangsta., produced by the Manglobe kings are here to rock the Summer season with Black Lagoon-esque action, bromance, feelings and a whole lot of heart stomping. I don´t really care what your anime likes and dislikes are, but for the love of god, give Gangsta. a try, it´s probably going to be the best anime of the season, you´ve heard it here first.
Gatchaman Crowds insight
I don´t know wheter this is a remake of the first season or a direct sequel, if it´s the former, I´ll definitely watch it, if it´s the latter, I´ll wait to start and finish the first season. I´ve heard decent things about it, one person claming it´s Durarara!! on acid and another person recommending it to me after I was feeling the void from Kamisama no Memochou. I think I´ll enjoy this.
Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri
A1 Pictures? cute girl with blue hair? weapons? wish fulfilling action? shit, this has got to be Sword Art Online! I honestly don´t care about this kind of show, although I´m enjoying DanMachi for some reason. Regardless, one fantasy anime with girls with big breasts is enough for me to last another year. Skip.
All the frames in this look like moving paintings, and I´m not sure I like it. I´m generally quite keen on Ufotable, they´re not my top studio, but the definitely have quality. God Eater seems to be trying something different though, and I´m not sure wheter or not they´re using CGI as a base and “draw” over it to make it look more 2D. I´m curious, so I´ll give it a try.
Jitsu wa Watashi wa
And the prize for most disgusting looking poster of the season goes to Jitsu wa Watashi wa, produced by ecchi powerhouse TMS Studios. This looks really unntractive, and while it may suit for an okay misfit story a lá Yamada-kun & the Seven Witches, I honestly doubt it will have the charm of the former. Whatever man, whatever.
Joukamachi no Dandelion
What the fuck is this.
Junjou Romantica 3
Rape the animation is back with, well, more rape. With this, Junjou Romantica will have 36 episodes of rape and strange body proportions. This show is utterly disgusting, and I´m definitely going to watch it.
