Alright, new season coming up. Although most are looking like sequels, spiritual successors, or spin offs of other series, it may seem boring to those who have not seen the others, but hopefully there are a few good ones out there.
I am going to continue waiting a week to watch the episodes, it worked rather well last season and I enjoyed shows a lot more. Sure I dropped several, but that always happens. I hope this season will be the same. Only since I am doing it from the start, I can find more shows to enjoy by the end.
But the second I am able to get that premium account for Crunchyroll, well I don’t know if I will continue to wait a week or not. I might since it has been going wonderful so far, except for shows I am reviewing, but who knows since I been enjoying them more too also waiting.
Shows I am Reviewing:
Obviously I am continuing Twin Star Exorcists into its Third Cour.
I am not big on ecchi anime. I dropped all of them but one in the last two years. It did not matter if it was a sequel, some to which were my favorites in my early days of anime, or if it was something new. Mostly because it was the same jokes, I felt uncomfortable, or something. But Monster Musume, which I reviewed last summer, and did the manga volume review I was not bothered. I assume this is due to them being adults, no real clichés like all the others, and I got used to the manga.
What does all of that have to do with Keijo!!!!!, well it is a sports ecchi anime. Although it is very ecchi, it also focuses a lot on the sport, since I may have checked out some of the manga to see if I would like the anime.
Anyway, I have the feeling, since they are adults, not many clichés, and no random high school shenanigans like in other anime, I should rather enjoy this since I did enjoy the manga when I checked it out. I did say I would review this back in June. Well, although it is coming out for the fall season.
Expect the first review to be out the day of the second episode, October 13. This is streamed by Crunchyroll. It is also licensed by Funimation with a dub planned, however I will not cover the dub.
I will be reviewing this series over at Anime Corps this season. I figured I would talk about it a bit in detail. More about my thoughts can be found on that post, which is here.
Anyway, I rather enjoyed Steins;Gates, Chaos;Head, and Robotics;Notes. All exist in the same universe and are very very loosely connected. This show is in that shared universe, since they are all by MAGES. But until the previously mentioned three, this is not based on a visual novel, but light novel.
Due to overloading myself last season and doing three shows for weekly reviews and ultimately dropping on one on Anime Corps, I am doing bi-weekly reviews. I am going to cover the first episode normally. But after that I will probably do it for two posts. Instead of covering the plot, I will give my analysis and thoughts for two episodes. That way I will not feel overloaded and not motivated, although in previous cases it was more because of the show then writing (Taboo Tattoo’s case was a bit of both). This is in case it is the writing. I may change this. I am uncertain, all shows I am reviewing are on different days.
I just wished to say that so feel free to check those posts out, I will try to remember to retweet it on twitter for both my personal and the Reviewer’s Corner twitter.
Expect the first episode review out October 15. This is streamed by both Crunchyroll and a week later on Daisuki. This is licensed by Aniplex of America.
First Impressions Post
Since most shows are sequels this season or something like that, I will only be doing two first impressions posts. Except these out sometime in the next week and a half after the second episodes of everything I watched aired.
Tiger Mask W: Streamed by Crunchyroll
Wrestling show and I am not big on wrestling. The only other anime I saw that had wrestling was “Wanna be the Strongest in the World” which was super ecchi. Time to see something that is not and judging from screen caps and what other people saw of the first episode, this will probably be crazy. Not sure until I see it though. Either way I was only slightly intrigued before the season started for this.
Time Bokan 24: Streamed by Crunchyroll
I mean I know this show is aimed at the younger audience. I also know I dropped last year’s Yatterman Night, which was based on the Time Bokan series. This is a reboot of that series. So, I figured why not. I did enjoy Yatterman when I did watch it and it was unintentionally dropped. This one looks like it could be a fun relaxing show to wake up to since that is when it comes out. Might as well try to have fun and try something new.
Shows I am Watching/Plan to
The ones with the asterisk next to them and in italics are ones that will get series reviews more than likely by the end, at least planed on for now.
Each one is listed with where they can be found legally to be streamed in North America. Some have not been listed yet, however others have. Personally although I could skip out on the final three listed, they may be only on two services that have no free streaming option after a week. If this is the case, well I am skipping and will not be covering them. The three are also all licensed by Sentai Filmworks, thus an effect of the CR X FUNI deal.

It is a 2 week free trial, at least in North America. I have not used mine, I am saving it before I actually buy an account.
