If anybody wonder why I don’t say anything about continuation of best anime from previous autumn season – Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon, they should stop worry now. Here is review of my most anticipated show of this summer.
Another new show of summer season once again take us to Sengoku era of Japan history. But with unpredictable twist – all medieval warlords are now lolis! I bet you don’t see that one coming.
One show of the new season that can easily get past your radar is pun-heavy comedy based on manga by author of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei – Kouji Kumeta.
My next show will probably become hidden gem of the summer season. It is a manga adaptation by Sunrise starring Hana Kanazawa as VA for main heroine. Sunrise in the past year have made bunch of good titles like Tiger & Bunny in previous spring, Horizon in autumn (and second season in this summer), Nichibros in winter and Accel World in this spring. So I think it is safe to assume that Binbougami ga!(God of Misfortune) will not fail miserably. Rather, it can become one of the best comedy of this summer. For me, this anime look a lot like Nyaruko-san, with similar silver-haired, green-eyed heroine and style of humor, but without Nyaruko’s tons of references to other titles and Cthulhu myths.
Another new show from summer season is a visual novel adaptation by Satelight (they previously made titles like Macross, Amagami SS, Aquarion, Infinite Stratos and Symphogear). Muv-luv Alternative is apparently quite popular among VN fans, so it even become the most highly rated title in vndb.org database. This rating is probably justified by high amount of young girls in very skimpy battle suits riding huge shiny giant robots. It’s also key feature of Infinite Stratos so I will make some parallels with it.
The second show of new season that I will try to blog is look like post-apocalyptic comedy.
One of three my most anticipated shows of new season started. And what I should say – everything went better than expected!
