So, new season of anime starts this week (Some have already even began) and in what feels like forever, I think I’m about to have more than 2 weekly shows I follow! Fate/Stay Night UBW returns this weekend and you betcha ya I am watching this one episode by episode! And this second part of the show is promising to be twice, if not three times better than the first half of the show. I watched the movie and if it is anything to go with, there is promising to be some great moments in this second half! Contract…enough said!
Nanofate return to us in the form of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Vivio and while I am one of the few, if not the only one, that did not read that manga ( I am not a great fun of diluted series. A’s was a hard pill to swallow when Hayate appeared, the giant bed is what saved StrikerS when I heard that even more characters were appearing in these manga spin offs, I was done) I love NanoFate so… And from what I hear, NanoFate are still married to each other (fuck the curse that affects only girls!!) and Vivio is gotten herself her own Fate so I might bite. Okay, I will bite, this is Nanoha we are talking about here. She does still have screen time, right? NanoFate are still relevant to the story, aren’t they?
Nagato Yuki-chan no Shoushitsu Suzumiya Yuki, I will just point you to my name on twitter! And to those who know of it, I wrote a fic titled just that! I was a very hardcore shipper of Yuki and Haruhi back in the day, which is really mind-boggling seeing as the series doesn’t even remotely support the two. But I did read the novels and there is that one volume where they went skiing and Yuki fell sick! That volume turned me into an animal! I couldn’t stop thinking about those two to the point of starting a fic of them! So of course I am going to watch this spinoff that focuses on Yuki (Just like my dead fic lol) and while I know they will take every chance to set these two up as rivals for Kyon, I will drink up all their interactions with glee. And even if it doesn’t work out with Kyon, which I know it won’t even before the series airs, Yuki still has that deranged lover of hers Asakura Ryouko so we are covered in that area too.
Hello!! Golden Mosaic looks like it will be a fun watch too. And really, with an all girl cast, what could possibly go wrong?
Hibike Euphonium K-ON!!! can’t say the same. Introducing guys in my K-ON!!! Damn it KyoAni, don’t you learn!! And of course they chose to actually put in a relationship card between the members unlike K-ON! and K-ON!! They are going to make us ship those girls with a past and then totally stomp on our hearts like they did with their last movie! That’s still a fresh wound you bastards!
Houkago no Pleiades is also looking good, if they follow the four ONAs from before. I loved those and I totally shipped Subaru and Aoi back then. Hopefully their relationship will still be intact during this long run.
And there you have it, the series that I will be checking out from the get go. Of course there is always a hidden gem and I will find it and watch it too. But for now, I will settle for these.
