EbolaBooze’s Spring/Autumn Anime Selections 2014

Totally muscling all over one of lorekai’s Alpha Nerd-fiefs here. (fite me irl m8ty, u know where I live)

Here are my top picks for shows to watch in the upcoming season in no particular order. (In b4 shit taste)

 

67333lFate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works (ufotable)

Seriously, how can you not be hyped for this? If you’re familiar with the Fate/Stay Night series: Best route, best (two) girl(s).

If you’re not familiar with the series, the premise is that seven Masters summon a legendary hero each to fight and die in a war for the Holy Grail, a nigh-omnipotent wish-grating artefact.

 

 

 

 

 

65881lGrisaia no Kajistsu (8bit)

Yet another visual novel adaptation. Having played though some of this, it’s a tentative recommendation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

67177lShigatsu wa Kimi no Uso [Your Lie in April] (A-1 Pictures)

Given the title, I’m expecting that like the last music-based anime that I picked up there will be feels that I never asked for. Maybe tears. Maybe I should read the manga it’s based on, and save myself the pain.

A young pianist loses his mother, who was also his instructor, and has a mental breakdown that renders him unable to hear his instrument. Two years later, boy meets violinist, and the story begins.

 

 

 

 

 

65447lTrinity Seven (Seven Arcs)

I enjoyed this manga, it’s a fresh take on the romcom magical school story, and the protagonist isn’t typical dense shounen, which is nice.

I have some expectations for the anime.

 

 

 

 

 

 

66879lPsycho-Pass 2 (FUNimation Entertainment/Tatsunoko Productions)

The sequel to the Psycho-Pass series, watch if you enjoyed the first season. Not sure how much they can fit into 11 episodes, but we’ll see.

 

 

 

 

 

 

66289lDanna ga Nani o Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken [I Can’t Understand What My Husband Is Saying] (Seven)

Slice of life, husband and wife story, where the wife is a decent human being, with a job, and actual social skills. The husband…. Well, he pretty much lives and breathes the Japanese equivalent of 4chan. Enough said.

…This sounds familiar.

 

 

 

 

65165lKiseijuu [Parasyte] (Madhouse Studios)

Crazy mindfuck horror, animated? Count me in.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

67047lInou Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de [When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace] (Trigger)

Imagine, imagine if all of your stupid chuunibyou fantasies became reality, and you gained all of the bullshit powers you wished for. You’d want battles, and excitement, and fights to save the world, right?

Nope, you get an everyday life with superpowers. I like this concept.

 

 

 

 

Stay angry my friends.
