My quadriannual ritual where I give new anime the three-scene rule.
FRAME ARMS GIRL
Apparently it's a card game anime or something.
SHINGEKI NO KYOJIN S2
The OP sucks, and the OP is the only reason to watch this.
Lots of lights and sounds. A girly friendship or something. I don't care.
The point of a side-story that doesn't focus on the OPMC isn't to deliver us the same thing but female.
Not actually about eromanga, it's apparently Denpa Onna or something like that.
It's all dudes. Is this gay? They act like there's a girl around. You. You, the viewer, are the girl. It's in first person.
GRIMOIRE OF ZERO
There has never been a good story based on Magical Racism Is Bad.
Magical girlfriend shonen action with Kana Asumi in the lead and a little effort in the fight scenes. I can dig it.
BOKU NO HERO ACADEMIA
Probably the least creative adaptation I have ever seen.
"Oh look at me, all the other anime do this but we're going to point out it's cliche and then do it."
A beautiful story about a bureaucrat using his drive, talent, and networking skills to save a factory, tragically cut short by the intrusion of a sci-fi plot.
Groundhog Day plot - awesome. Everyone is a boring person -
Victims of Japanese authors' callous overuse of violence and dystopia break into the real world (or is it? really makes ya think) to exact vengeance on their creators. High production values. Rushed plot. Can the studio that brought us Aldnoah Zero take a complex idea with deep implications to a satisfactory end?
lolno but it's pretty to watch.
TSUKI GA KIREI
Apparently some kind of school romance?
I tend to bet on PA Works but I'm not in the mood right now.
Some kind of hot-blooded soccer anime? Everyone in it cares about it a lot though.
SHUUMATSU NANI SHITEMASU KA? ISOGASHII DESU KA? SUKUTTE MORATTE II DESU KA?
In the beginning there was a context-free action scene with sad music. Then there was a delightful rooftop chase. Then there was a montage.
GIN NO GUARDIAN
OUSHITSU KYOUSHI HAINE
There's a school band it looks like?
SHINGEKI NO BAHAMUT: VIRGIN SOUL
I loved the first one but I never finished it.
So there's a magic school, right? And some magic schoolgirls showing off their archetypes, skip ahead, there is a man, being magically abused, for an imagined slight
Why should I care about any of these people
Starting stories with action scenes should be BANNED for our own good
SIN: NANATSU NO TAIZAI
No knights, no fights, no giantess, not what I ordered.
Not nearly enough CGDCT this season.
PICKED UP but if this goes Hanayamata with the drama it will cease to be picked up
Better not be gay.
Retro animation, acts like it's clever?
TWIN ANGEL BREAK
Looks like Futari wa Precure. Does J.C. Staff do that kind of thing? I like the VAs I guess.
Sort of a Dragons Rioting thing?
ALICE TO ZOUROKU
Full-length episodes are long. Old man protecting super girl plot, good camera work.
A short with a reverse trap banchou. All right.
