Anime fall season has begun and one of my fav shows with it. Kintama is back with whole new episodes. (Gintama fans know the joke here)

Also get new Hayate no gotoku and Medaka Box.

of the new stuff I'm interested in BTOOM, Magi, Code Breaker and Psycho Pass

and of course Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.

So WoW anime fans what shows are on your radar for the new season

Zetsuen no Tempest might be interesting. Same with Magi - The Labyrinth of Magic. I might give Psycho Pass a look.

Overall, nothing that definitively catches my interest.

Jojo is probably my most anticipated.

The comic is just visually amazing and the story itself is pretty surreal at times.

the Jojo version of Vampires is pretty damn creepy.

I am really hoping the Anime will capture the feel of the comic. It's one of those things that is either going to be amazing to watch or a massive disappointment.

I'm really enjoying Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb, I've been looking forward to it for quite a while.

Chuunibyou demo Koi ga shi tai and BTOOOM also look pretty interesting.

Code:Breaker seems interesting, potentially. I haven't read the manga so I'm not sure how it plays out.

After two episodes I'm really interested to see where they go with Shin Sekai Yori.

I'll watch Bakuman 3 because I liked the manga so much, but I won't race to watch it every week.

K has the potential to be absolutely phenomenal, watching that one very closely.

I'm also thoroughly enjoying Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun; not exactly sure why, it just makes me grin.

Magi was fun and I think I'll keep up with that one

but the one that has me hooked most now is Blast of Tempest. Did not expect this one to get me as good as it did. 2 episodes in and I'm already chomping at the bit for the next one

Getting a little irritated with Funimation's simulcasts right now, been weeks and they still haven't fixed whatever is screwing over their system for Canadian subscribers. Hope they get it fixed soon cause they managed to land a lot of shows I'm interested in seeing.

(I know I could get torrents but if a legal version is available I prefer the legal version....but if they don't get this fixed soon, I will go for the torrents)

EDIT: just finished the 2nd episode of BTOOOM. That show has some decent potential, not a nice show though, gonna be real bloody before it's over and the characters have some really messed up backgrounds.

The villain for the second half of Sword Art Online is REALLY easy to hate.

Like, Orson Welles's character in Touch of Evil easy.

Reminded me of Gantz a little bit in that regard.

Just saw the first episode of Psycho-Pass on the Funimation site.

That looks like it will be a good series, though bloody. Future where computer's scan your psychological state and decide if you are a potential criminal or not. Police are given the task of arresting people who's "criminal coefficient" rises above 60.

First episode was pretty nasty and promises to get nastier. If you like the dark and bloody kind of series give it a shot.

I'm somewhat surprised they don't have the show age restricted, too be honest. Not quite on Hellsing level of ultraviolence. Yet. But definitely some heavy subject matter.

Overall a promising first episode, that could go in 9 different directions at this point. While I didn't particularly like the random drop into a big faceoff intro with "fated meeting" dialogue, it does promise to (hopefully) show some serious character development. Because despite being show as the protagonist hero in the intro, the main character is an absolute prat the rest of the episode. I expect some sort of build up to the audience liking or at least sympathizing with him, and hopefully it isn't contrived.

I'm curious as to what happens when a Police officer rises above 60 in that setting. Lets face it, dose not look like a stress free job. How long will our rookie remain on the safe side of the line and how soon dose she become a valid target as far as their system is concerned.

Flip side - went looking for laughs and light heartedness after that so I tried Kamisama Kiss. That was a lot of fun. 17 year old girl finds herself homeless after her parents skip town and the house gets seized to pay dad's gambling debts. Helps some poor guy getting terrorized by a dog so he gives her an address where she can live.

Turns out the guy is a local God who doesn't want to go home, so he transferred his godhood to her, dumping all the responsibilities and work on her.

So now she lives in a shrine that needs a lot of maintenance, with a couple of divine servants and a pissed off familiar, prayers to answer and the target of ghosts and monsters who want to eat her to gain power.

and high school on top of all that

I think Magi will wind up being my go to fluffy show. Lighthearted, well meaning adventure story. At least that's how the first episode looked. Very strong, assuming it sticks on the light, fluffy adventure side.

*Blast of Tempest's first episode leaves me on the fence. It's going to take alot to have the "save the world" and "mysterious girl offers power" schtick to not be more than pretentious ambition.

**Kamisama Kiss is a pleasant surprise. Very funny for what looks like a harem shoujo.

episode 3 had me laughing out loud
"Stop Fighting right now"
"Play Nice with the Fish!"

and yeah she's getting a nice harem of guys; Fox, Tengu and Snake plus what looks like 2 more waiting in the wings to show up.

The whole thing reminds me of a cross between Fruits Basket and Inuyasha, except not nearly as melancholy as either.

...

*chomp!*

I finally got around to watching Ixion saga

good god that was funny. Really fun take on "MMO gamer ends up in real fantasy world"

as for motives for revenge, the Villain there has a pretty good one.

yeah....

yeah I would hunt that hero to the ends of the earth if that was me.

Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun and Shinsekai Yori are both pretty awesome so far. And Hidamari Sketch, of course <3

Also, Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo has been getting surprisingly good, after the so-so first episode.
