Here’s the post where I watch the first episode of most anime this season and hate my life for it. Hopefully the first few mediocre anime that I watched won’t be indicative of the season as a whole.

Arpeggio of Blue Steel

Screen Shot 2013-10-10 at 2.49.54 PM

Our generic L-like protagonist gets a cute little girl from an unknown person who will obey is every command. She’s some kind of robot and will help him save humanity from the unknown treat that have appeared over the world. The story take place in a world where satellite communication are impossible, where every government in the world have collapsed and where climate change changed the face of the world. I liked the setting of the story but I was left cold for the animation and characters. Maybe (but most probably not)

Humanity have found a way to go to a parallel universe… they send a 14 year old to share the knowledge of manga and anime. what the hell not for me

BlazBlue – Alter Memory

Screen Shot 2013-10-10 at 3.36.54 PM

The first episode of this anime looked very ambitious to me… a nonlinear story line, good animation and characters. But this ambition comes with uncertainty, we, the viewers, are sent into this parallel world with no knowledge of it what so ever. A lot of information seem to be missing from the first episode. At this point in time, it is hard to say if this anime will be good or not. Hopefully it will be interesting enough to make me continue watching. Or it will fall into the category of i just don’t care enoughMaybe

 The premiss of this show was written so they can have 3 girls in miniskirt with no panties on on screen at the same time. I’m usually a fan of dystopian stuff, but the whole episode was boring and really did not do anything for me. Not for me

This one seem weird to me. I’m really not sure who the target audience is… the female protagonist find herself in a house full of vampire who sexually, physically and psychologically harassed her. I do see that such anime could satisfy a certain audience, but it’s not for me.

Freezing Vibration

Screen Shot 2013-10-10 at 6.17.48 PM

Well that was simply boring… and full of untasteful fan-service. Not for me

Ace of Diamond

Screen Shot 2013-10-10 at 6.21.23 PM

I profoundly hate baseball. not for me

Kill la Kill

Screen Shot 2013-10-10 at 6.46.31 PM

That was really impressive… hell of a spin off on the high school anime and awesome animation. I  look foward to the next episode. Yes

Gingitsune

Screen Shot 2013-10-10 at 7.25.33 PM

This line up to be a nice and sweet anime a la Natsume’s Book of Friends. Yes

Hajime no Ippo

My disdain for baseball can only be meet by few things… boxing is one of those. not for me

Sekai de Ichiban Tsuyoku Naritai

Screen Shot 2013-10-10 at 7.50.00 PM

It’s very nice of them to start the anime with a series of frame like this… you know immediately what to expect. not for me

Infinite Stratos 2

Screen Shot 2013-10-10 at 7.53.33 PM

Oh well. not for me 

Nagi no Asukara

Screen Shot 2013-10-10 at 8.28.33 PM

Wow, I was not expecting this. Yes yes yes !

Non Non Biyori 

Screen Shot 2013-10-10 at 9.00.32 PM

I was pleasantly surprised by this anime as well. It seem like it’s gonna be a very tasteful slice of life. It’s rare to see an anime with 4 girls as the main cast that are not overly sexualised. I always like anime in the country side… Yes

 Strike the Blood

Screen Shot 2013-10-10 at 10.26.31 PM

Ledo from Suisei no Gargantia is now a vampire… but seriously, vampire never really work in anime. I think there was some funny moments, but I don’t expect this to keep my attention for long. Maybe (but probably not)

Yowamushi Pedal

Screen Shot 2013-10-10 at 11.00.50 PM

A lot of sport anime this season… this one is more of a sport/comedy. It was all right, not ground breaking but not awful either. I will probably watch a couple of episode, let’s see if they can make me laugh. Maybe

Unbreakable Machine-Doll

Screen Shot 2013-10-10 at 11.27.24 PM

So this is like Pokemon… but instead of having pokemon they have cute little girls who want to have sex with them ? not for me

Tokyo Ravens

Screen Shot 2013-10-10 at 11.52.00 PM

This one is harder to evaluate… a lot of unanswered questions. But was interesting enough, fun characters. Yes

Golden Time

Screen Shot 2013-10-11 at 12.18.32 AM

A school comedy in college… Maybe

Gundam Build

Screen Shot 2013-10-11 at 12.24.24 AM

I think this anime was made for the sole purpose to sell related merchandise. Boriiing… not for me

Log horizon

Screen Shot 2013-10-11 at 12.31.02 AM

Looks like a bad ripoff of Sword art onlinenot for me

Kuroko’s Basketball

Screen Shot 2013-10-11 at 12.55.58 AM

I liked season one, hopefully season two will be just as good (better then those awful english dialogue in episode one…). Yes

 Ore no Nounai Sentakushi ga, Gakuen Love Comedy wo Zenryoku de Jama Shiteiru

Screen Shot 2013-10-11 at 1.38.05 AM

What ? not for me

Super Seisyun Brothers

Screen Shot 2013-10-11 at 1.50.40 AM

I never watched a 4 minutes anime before… but this was very fast paced, funny and had nice animation. I think this is the forth anime this season with popsicle in the first episode, i wonder what this is about. Yes

 Yozakyra Quartet Hana No Uta

Screen Shot 2013-10-11 at 1.59.20 PM

I’m not quite sure what i just watched. But i’m interested. Yes.

Galilei Donna

Screen Shot 2013-10-11 at 2.30.59 PM

I’m getting overwhelm by all the potential good show… this one looked good as well. Hopefully they will be interesting enough to keep me watching. (but seriously, could they not have come up with any other italian last name then Ferrari ?) Yes

Samurai Flamenco

Screen Shot 2013-10-11 at 3.20.32 PM

This show is going in a completely different direction then i though it would. For some reason I was envisioning a very serious anime, but it’s actually a very funny anime instead. (and I totally ship the two main characters) Yes

Meganebu!

Screen Shot 2013-10-11 at 3.30.30 PM

I had a hard time finishing the episode… is this a whole anime based on a school club about glasses ? And can we all acknowledge that this colour pallet is simply outrageous. not for me

Walkure Romanze

Screen Shot 2013-10-11 at 3.41.09 PM

Miniskirt and horses. not for me

Kyoukai no kanata

Screen Shot 2013-10-11 at 4.26.29 PM

Yet another anime that I’m likely to follow this season… unless i get too annoyed with the weak girl with a sword gimmick. Yes

// Well the season does not look so bad after all. I suppose I only got a tiny bit unlucky with my selection order. What I will say, is that the worst shows seem to be getting worst. They have their small little recipe and they just execute it with new character while increasing the number of boobs and panties shots. Oh well, what are the show you guys are looking forward to ?

I suggest that you check out the following shows.

  • Nagi no Asukara
  • Kyoukai no kanata
  •  Samurai Flamenco
  • Galilei Donna
  • Yozakyra Quartet Hana No Uta
  • Super Seisyun Brothers
  • Kuroko’s Basketball
  • Tokyo Ravens
  • Non Non Biyori
  • Kill la Kill

The shows you should avoid.

  • Sekai de Ichiban Tsuyoku Naritai
  • Ore no Nounai Sentakushi ga blablablalba
  • Log horizon
  • Meganebu!
  • Walkure Romanze
  • Gundam Build
  • Unbreakable Machine-Doll
  • Infinite Stratos 2
  • Hajime no Ippo
  • Outbreak company
  • Coppelion
  • Freezing Vibration

  • Diabolik Lovers

I don’t know about those.
