Tag Archive: Anime

Spring is officially here (well going by the Anime calendar)!

How can I say this?
Several of the “Winter” Animes have come to an end ready for the next crop, but which ones ended?
This is a list of the ones that I have been watching that ended (in no particular order)

  • Schwarzesmarken
  • Hai to Gensou no Grimgar (has this actually finished?
  • Dimension W
  • Mobile Suit Iron Blodded Orphans
  • Durarara (after 3 seasons)
  • God Eater (that got dragged out)
  • Luck and Logic
  • Bubuki Buranki
  • Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri ( I hope this is just a season)
  • Heavy Object
  • Divine Gate
  • Active Raid

UPDATE 02-APRIL-2016: The following have now also finished.

  • Phantasy Star Online 2: The Animation
  • Norn 9 + Norn.
  • Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm

  • Musaigen no Phantom World

There are some still ongoing, but the new season has some good and bad surprises.

Ghost in the Shell has a new VR Video coming out that makes use of the current gen VR apps.

Mobile Suit UC (unicorn) should have the next episode out soon (and dare I guess the next thunderbolt episode should not be to far behind)

A second series of Asterisk wars (Gakusen Toshi Asterisk)

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress (Koutetsujou no Kabaneri) a Steampunk Style anime


Along with  more anime’s that I am yet to pick through.

Will they be any good, it is to early to tell.

Summer 2015 New anime’s.

Looks like some interesting releases for the summer.

Gatchamn Crowds and Miss Monochrome have returned for a second season while the following “New” series start.

Ranpo Kitan: Game of Laplace – Too early to tell how this will fit but looks interesting.
The story takes place at a certain middle school where several murder cases take place. Kobayashi, a boy who goes to this school, meets genius detective Akechi, who comes to the school to investigate. Kobayashi takes an interest in Akechi and, in spite of his friend Hashiba’s worries, he volunteers to be Akechi’s assistant.

In the city of Ergastulum, a shady ville filled with made men and petty thieves, whores on the make and cops on the take, there are some deeds too dirty for even its jaded inhabitants to touch. Enter the “Handymen,” Nic and Worick, who take care of the jobs no one else will handle. Until the day when a cop they know on the force requests their help in taking down a new gang muscling in on the territory of a top Mafia family. It seems like business (and mayhem) as usual, but the Handymen are about to find that this job is a lot more than they bargained for.

Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri
In August of 20XX, a portal to a parallel world, known as the “Gate,” suddenly appeared in Ginza, Tokyo. Monsters and troops poured out of the portal, turning the shopping district into a bloody inferno. The Japan Ground-Self Defence Force immediately took action and pushed the fantasy creatures back to the “Gate.” To facilitate negotiations and prepare for future fights, the JGSDF dispatched the Third Reconnaissance Team to the “Special Region” at the other side of the Gate. Youji Itami, a JSDF officer as well as a 33-year-old otaku, was appointed as the leader of the Team. Amid attacks from enemy troops the team visited a variety of places and learnt a lot about the local culture and geography. Thanks to their efforts in humanitarian relief, although with some difficulties they were gradually able to reach out to the locals. They even had a cute elf, a sorceress and a demigoddess in their circle of new friends. On the other hand, the major powers outside the Gate such as the United States, China, and Russia were extremely interested in the abundant resources available in the Special Region. They began to exert diplomatic pressure over Japan. A suddenly appearing portal to an unknown world—to the major powers it may be no more than a mere asset for toppling the international order. But to our protagonists it is an invaluable opportunity to broaden knowledge, friendship, and ultimately their perspective towards the world

Classroom Crisis
With aims to one day reach out into the stars, humanity has colonized all the planets of the solar system. This story of young high school hopefuls is set in Fourth Tokyo in a Japanese Martian prefecture. Iris Shirasaki is a third year student/aspiring test pilot. Mizuki Sera is her peer/mechanic and Mizuki’s brother Kaito is their homeroom teacher and the young director of the program developing their talents.

Triage X seamed to end unfinished.
Fate/Stay Night looks to have finished.
KInghts of Sidonia (Sidonia no Kishi: Daikyuu Wakusei Seneki) looks to have finished.

Ghost in the Shell Season 3

Well the news is now out. Ghost in the Shell Arise is comming out this year.

From what I can tell, it looks like a prequel. What I can’t tell if this will be for Ghost in the Shell Prequel or a GITS SAC Prequel (slight difference in the two). But who really care’s I hope I don’t have to wait ages before it come to the UK!

Psycho Pass

Psycho Pass

Just watched the first episode of Psycho Pass on Best Animes web site and despite the first episode jumping strait into the action like Ghost in the Shell I’m not sure what to make of it.

Psycho Pass is the latest series from Production I.G. and has alot of the feeling of its other works. As its only had the first episode aired it’s hard to make judgement so will hold off till later in the series.

What’s interesting is that despite listing in the credits Psycho Pass is not to be found on there web site???

for more information http://psycho-pass.com/

Well that’s it for now


End of Seasons

End of Seasons.

Well the following Tv and Anime seasons have come to an end this month.

Gundam AGE
Dr Who
Sword art online (SAO)
Accel World

However we all know that Dr Who will be back at Christmas!
Sword Art Online (SAO) Will be back with the Episode “Return”
Accel World finished with a very open ending but there are 2 OVA’s coming out so we can expect a new series

Now I just wish Bleach Season 8 (complete box set) and the Appleseed XIII Films would come out in the UK!

Ghost Hunt Anime

Well just finished watching the Anime Ghost Hunt
I found this quite enjoyable and too be honest a little scary. For those that remember the TV series Poltergist – The Legacy,
Its is very similar and has just enough scare factor to keep you interested. Its a shame the manga hasn’t got far enough for a secound season because it does deserve one.
In my opinion I would like to see a second series were Mai Taniyama (The leading lady) traveling with Monk and the priestess (Ayako Matsuzaki) to explore and understand her abilities.

If you like Anime and ghost stories this one is (IMHO) my recommendation.
