Summer Season 2015 – It’s almost here folks!

THAT’S RIGHT,

it’s time for some anime my good and loyal friends. A new season full of expectations, let-downs, and guilty pleasures.

Me? I’m going to watch a few myself after a short hiatus from East Asian Animation. In fact, I’ll spot-light 3 of my summer picks this season!

Though the pickings may look slim, every season, at least for me, has a few gems that catch my eye. Of course I’m always very skeptical when it comes to the newer anime, as previous seasons have left me dry or traumatized (Devil Survivor 2 episodic posts). Now onto the speculation of course.

Akagami no Shirayuki-hime

Akagami no Shirayukihime

I’m not much of a fan of Shoujo series, and especially not romance ones, but I feel like it’s time to let one slip through my cold and cynical heart and give it a chance. After all, if the title doesn’t bring back fond, fond, nostalgic memories of VHS tapes and Disney, I don’t know what would.

赤髪の白雪姫, otherwise known as Akagami no Shirayuki-hime (translated with this little funny thing) lit. Snow White with the Red Hair or whatever, sue me if I get it wrong.

The premise is nice, but a bit of a stretch of your suspension of disbelief, but truly we are going to be privy to some classical “historic” romance involving possibly the traipse of our young Snow White bumbling into true love.

Honestly, just an excuse to check out the manga some time or other.

(Thanks for the heads up to check this one out, you know who you are!)

Aquarion Logos

Time for some Aqualion, boys. Not too much to say here, I enjoyed Evol, so it’s pretty much a given to check this one out as well. Some CGI, some visual gags and comedy here and there, looking to be something I would possibly watch past the first episode.

Can’t say no to those mecha, now can I!

8/10 – It’s got Mecha.

Gangsta.

Bandai Visual, Manglobe, Seinin. Chef Excellence congratulates this anime with a perfect seal of “10/10” definite watch for myself. I’m always a fan of old fashion gangster type stories, and this one looks to be most excellent.

Following the classic “Japanese take on American organized crime”, it can either be a gritty, yet humorous tale of people getting robbed and bad guys dethroned, or it could just be a pulpy romp through not-Eastern US in the pseudo-20’s/30’s.

10/10 – !!Excellent!!

  1. Gangsta, I was waiting for this one

    • It looks really good, and the character design looked pretty familiar. I checked the designer to see if he had done anything that I’d seen before, but sadly that was not the case. More reason to watch, eh?

      • the most important is “Manglobe” . one of the best animation studios in Japan. Samurai champloo , Ergo Proxy , House of Five Leaves , Deadman Wonderland .yeah ! all my favorite animes. i wish i could buy their works instead of downloading 🙁 🙁 i’m so ashamed of my self 🙁 . but here in my country it is impossible .
