Team’s Impression:
Eva: If incest, forget it. Not my thing.
Vantage: If she’s his twin sister, then she shouldn’t be calling him onii-chan in the first place.
Oki: If incest count me i- I mean what an atrocity! But that girl in the eyepatch is hot………I think I might take screenshots for my hotgirl collective XD
Linzz: I like twincest but only for Rin and Len Kagamine and for no other anime/game/etc2D characters anymore. And I am against moe animation, srsly.

Tenderfoot:I’m just going to say “Nope” to this one. Twins with incest undertones and a harem is just a lot of things I don’t like combined into one.

Eva: Soooo… um… I honestly don’t know what to say about this, so I’ll check it out and see whether I’m interested or not.
Vantage: The last time I tried a show with girls and weaponry (Upotte) it turned out to be the most sexualized thing since…I dunno. Yeah, not riding any hopes on this.
Oki: Hehehe….it sounds like, a lame leopard name. Like, pansy + leopard. Like the insult they would give to a leopard, so …Okay I’m offtopic here, no way ever
Linzz: Even though a part of me which likes mecha says I should watch this… there is this part of me which hates too much moe girls in a series not to watch it. Probably if I get good impression from this one, I might watch it but not possible for me to blog.

Tenderfoot:This looks…like it was made for a very certain type of fan? I’ll watch an episode but I don’t know if it’ll go beyond that. Unless it becomes the opposite of what it looks like it’s going to be. But I won’t cry if it’s not the best thing everrrrr.

Oki: Linzz got it and as she is not the type, like me, to sleep for weeks at a time I’m good. Art style is pretty though- I SHALL WATCH FOR THE HOT GIRLS COLLECTIVE
Linzz: A big yes for this little thing!!!! <333 I was seriously following the manga and then one day I saw that news from Moetron and then BOOM!

Team’s Impression:
Eva: I haven’t watched any of it yet, so pass…. I seriously need to do so though, it’s long overdue.

Oki: I…I want to do it…I want to do it but I’M…I’M SO LAZY I JUST…
Linzz: I didn’t really finished the first season nor did touch the second season either… I stopped half way on the manga… maybe it’s just not my type of series even though I’m so interested on a life of a mangaka. D8

She then goes to class to find there’s a new transfer student, Oogami Rei, who looks exactly like the boy she saw before and wears a black glove only on his left hand. Oogami is a Code Breaker, one who “does not exist”. He is a seemingly cold-blooded killer who follows the principle of “an eye for an eye”, to “use evil against evil”. Convinced that killing is not right, Sakurakouji sets out to stop him and penetrate his icy heart.
Trailer: PV 1, PV 2, PV 3
Team’s Impression:
Eva: It sounds interesting, but I doubt I’ll blog it unless I have the urge to write about it.
Vantage: I’ve read the manga, but stopped for a reason I can no longer remember. It seems very shounen, but as long as it doesn’t turn cliché, we’ll get along very well xD
Oki: Aw shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit son that looks for real – …for….the hot girl collective?
Linzz: I’ve read first parts of the manga but really, reading a too much shounen manga is not good for me, or rather, I’m not really comfortable with it or I dun understand some scenes/panels either. Since this got an anime so I’ll try my luck for it. 8D

Tenderfoot: This could be good. I like how it sounds. Blue fire and characters who wear gloves have always been good to me in the past (mostly only in manga thought) so I’ll give it a shot.

Trailer: PV 1, PV 2
Team’s Impression:
Eva: Can I just say how much I love its website? I’m definitely keeping my eyes poen for this one. Truth to be told, I’ve constantly passed by the manga, but never once have I actually bothered to read it- which is about to change *cue to going off to start reading it*. Hahaha, unless someone else is already familiar with the anime, there’s a possibility that I’ll take part of this one.
Vantage: I’m a bit wary for some strange reason, but it can’t hurt to give it a try.
Oki: It’s always weird when people reference movies that are popular for me. Like when they have grounds in reality. It’s always an interesting take but it’s just not for me…EXCEPT FOR THE HOT GIRL COLLEC-
Linzz: I might watch and follow this on reviews because of Sinbad.

Tenderfoot:I’ve seen a lot of fan art for the Manga, which is apparently all it takes to get me interested in watching an anime…so I’ll be watching it. At least up until episode 146, because I’ve got a feeling this will probably become one of those series. You know, the ones that are like 50 million episodes long.

Vantage: KugiRie plus tsundere, yaaaaay. Never watched the original series, but I might as well give it a go.
Linzz: I wonder if I should. I never get to finish the original series at all. =\

Tenderfoot:I don’t know. I’ve never seen the original so this is a probably not for me. It’s not really speaking to me in a “Watch me” kind of way.

Eva: Isn’t this almost exactly like Transformers except… Optimus Prime: “MEGATRON, I CHALLENGE YOU TO A CHILDREN CARD GAME!!!! IT’S TIME TO D-D-D-DUEL!” /BRB CACKLING, I CAN’T-!
Vantage: Dazzling the stage! GALACTIC PRETTY BOY! TAU-BUUUURRRRRNNN! See look, the middle guy even has a mark to let him apprivoise. Or that might be his shirt.
Oki: No. This…this is just Bakugan. It’s just…no.

Team’s Impression:
Eva: Again, Comedy Romance, sign me up. I never pass this stuff.
Vantage: Eva you can have this. I’ll watch from afar and fanboy when appropriate.
Oki: OH MY GOD I WANT THIS- oh dammit. I HATE YOU GUYS……….oh wait. /takes out shotgun/ I KNEW I WAS FROM THE SOUTH FOR A REASON. MINE.

Tenderfoot:This is probably one of my favorite mangas at the moment. Yeah, it’s kinda your typical shoujo plot but I don’t know, there’s just something about it that makes it stand out from the rest (maybe it’s the art? Who knows) so if the anime manages to replicate that kind feel, I’ll be over the moooooooon. Basically, YES! I’m going to watch this! and if it’s bad I’ll cry.

Now in his second year of high school they still hang out, fight and live together, and enjoy their school life.
Trailer: PV 1
Team’s Impression:
Eva: *On the phone* “Hi I’d like to make an order for a a dozen pack of tissue boxes, I’d like you to deliver it to Vantage at…” Oh yeah I’ll be watching this while attempting to be mentally prepared for all the wounds of all the FEELS and eyes being so swollen from crying every episode.
Vantage: *shotguns with tears already streaming down face* Oh god, it’s Little Busters. Wait, no I should rephrase that. Oh god, LB Refrain. If this adaptation will even do Refrain that is – I kind of want it to, because it’s amazing, but at the same time, the depression from it is going to leave everyone in a quivering wreck of feels. Seeing as this came from a Key visual novel (Kanon, Air, Clannad) I swear, as an eroge player and anime fan I will crash the earth into the sun if JC Staff messes this up.
Oki: Ew I just…naw man I ain’t into that
Linzz: Not for me. XD

Tenderfoot: Clannad did a number on my mental health (also, for some reason I couldn’t get all this mysterious stuff out of my eyes, it was really weird…) so I’m approaching this with caution. Much like one would approach a wounded animal in the forest that you would nurse back to health and frolic with in fields of daisies only to find that your parents were allergic to it and then would make you take it to the animal shelter to give it up for adoption AND I’M GOING TO STOP NOW. Yeah, I’ll watch it.

Vantage: Recent idol shows (Idolm@ster, AKB0048) were amazing partly because of how attached you got to the characters, but I don’t see myself in that situation with this show anytime soon. I thought it was a mahou shoujo show at first
Oki: But it;….it looks so good but it’s probably really stupid and I just- /dies

Linzz: WHY DO I SEE PRETTY CURE?!?! Oh wait- it’s not. lolol

Tenderfoot: Based on an arcade card game about producing idols…yeah…I’m not so sure about that.

Team’s Impression:
Vantage: Oh cool, a KyoAni moeblob. Looks really nice, gonna give it a shot.
Oki: There’s gonna be soooo much porn of this girl. Not by me, and I’m not even that interested, but come on guys. Look at her. Look at her and FORESEE THE PORN.
Linzz: Too moe is not good for me.

Tenderfoot: I’ll reserve judgment until I’ve seen at least two episodes, but only because it’s Kyoto Animation (and I generally like them.) Could be good, but could also be too…”Moe” for me.

Team’s Impression:

Vantage: They’re all bishoujos and I approve – except it just looks so dull =/
Oki: Oh wow this cover only makes me slightly gag.
Linzz: I’m not really into 5 minutes per episodes…

Tenderfoot:I can think of a million things I’d rather do for 5 minutes, so this is probably going to be a no-go for me.

Airing Date: October 2012
Summary: Second Season
Trailer: PV 1
Team’s Impression:
Eva: I really enjoyed the first season, so I’m looking forward to the second- which is surprising because I don’t typically watch these shows because of the gruesome bloodshed. However I don’t think I’d do a very good job blogging it, so I’ll leave it to someone else.
Vantage: Never watched the first season *ducks*
Oki: Naw man I tried to watch the first season wasn’t for me.
Linzz: Eva told me to watch the first season of this so… I’ll list it on my to watch list for now. XD

Tenderfoot: Having gone back and watched the first season, I can say that I like this show enough to watch the second season for sure. It’s got some interesting characters (and the way that they’re designed is so strange that I can’t help but like it), and I’m hoping that they’ll get even more fleshed out in this season. Plus, I kinda love Koko.

Eva: I…I’m going to stay away from this one. The promo poster is creepy enough.
Vantage: What is this…
Oki: This makes me think of Sayanara Zetsubou Sensei…and thus my bias will eat it alive.
Linzz: Wait, isn’t this series falls under what I want? Look at all those genre!!! Although as Eva said the poster is kind of… not my type but I may touch one episode and see how it goes.

Tenderfoot:I’ve really been wanting to watch a “horror” anime of late, so maybe I’ll do this one. It looks weird. I like weird things…hehehe (edit: having gone back and done some research, it looks like this will be little comedic shorts, so…that might be kinda cool?)

Vantage: What is this… (I have this weird feeling of deja vu for some reason).
Linzz: Seriously, the game has good graphics…. I really do like it… so I might if it will have a good start. 4th and 3rd stage actually disappointed me because of those CG races but I’ll try to look at this in a different point of view and oh damn. ANIMAX AGAIN?! I wonder if English subs will be available on the net for this. T^T

Tenderfoot:I’ve never seen Initial D so…yeah. Don’t think I’ll start now.

Airing Date: October 2012
Summary: About one thousand years into the future, civilization has been retrograded and humans are living dispersed within small communities. People in this era have a psychic power called “Juryoku” which materializes things they imagine. In the absence of advanced scientific technology, people are using this power as a major source of energy.
One day, a girl called Saki, along with her friends, finds a small archive robot outside the town. It records the ancient history of humans. It tells them that Juryoku was found in the 21st century and the discovery caused a world war between psychics and non-psychics. The psychics won this war and thus their reign of terror began. 
When the adults in town figure out that the children discovered this forbidden knowledge, they seal their Juryoku and exile them. Saki and the others end up in a forest where they meet a huge hairless bipedal mouse known as a “Bakenezumi” and get involved in a violent war the creatures are currently engaged in.

Oki: Eh.
Linzz: Sci-fi, baby! I might wanna watch you but I can’t put you in my priority list so I leave you to the others… ;A;

Tenderfoot: You had me at “huge, hairless, bipedal mouse.”

Summary: Original TV anime by Studio GoHands and an “innovative creator group” which includes producer Go Nakanishi.
Trailer: PV1, PV Special, PV2PV3PV4, PV 5 (English),
Team’s Impression:
Eva: IT’S SO PRETTY!!! *SWOONS* LOOK AT ALL THE COLORS! Oh my god, I’m absolutely watching this, lets just hope the plot turns out just as good as the animation looks to be. Until it airs, lets all take a moment to appreciate the freaking scenery. Gosh. I’m in love- not to mention the OST is already standing out in such a positive light. I can’t wait to hear the whole thing!
Vantage: The fight scenes look superb. Original anime series tend to outdo a lot of other shows in a season, so I’d be pleased to take this up for blogging.
Linzz: Okay, why did I just noticed GoHand just today?! DAT ANIMATION IS SUPER COOL. If ever I get to like this series, I’m Eva’s back up anytime.

Tenderfoot:I was totally going to write this one off as some kind of reverse harem thing, but low and behold! It looks like it’ll have a plot! and the animation looks A+! and it’s not based on anything! So really what more can you want? I’ll watch it.

Trailer: PV 1
Team’s Impression:
Eva: I didn’t watch the OVA, so I won’t be blogging this. If I’m going to watch it, I’m probably going to watch the OVA first for the sake of it.
Vantage: I watched that OVA thing last Christmas or whenever it was. Yeah the summary makes it sound really cool, but I’m not ready to commit to such a wild card. If it even turns up.
Oki: /snore
Linzz: Toei always gets the series that sparkles my interest. Although I am not sure if I can blog about this one.

Summary: Second Season of Medaka Box.
Trailer: PV 1
Team’s Impression:
Eva: I can’t cover this because I didn’t watch the first season but… *looks at Vantage* He insists that I watch S2 anyways. *SALUTES* Will do man.
Vantage: Ignore Season 1, that didn’t exist. Seriously, it must have put sooooo many people off, because this Medaka Box is literally a whole new kind of show. Watch it, if you didn’t before or dropped it.
Linzz: NOOOOEOEEEESSSS!!! D8 moe big breast omg nooo.

Tenderfoot: This is going to sound like the dumbest reason to avoid watching a show but man, do I HATE the clothing/character/whatever-you-want-to-call-it designs. They…just…I can’t even look at them. It’s irrational, I know. So, long story short, I haven’t seen season one.

One day, he wakes up on a tropical island without remembering how he got there. He sees a figure in the distance and asks for help. However, the figure responds by throwing something at Ryūta — a “BIM” bomb. In that moment, Ryūta comes to realize two things: one, his own life is in danger, and two, he is now in the world of Btoom!
Trailer: PV 1, PV 2
Team’s Impression:
Eva: I’m not really sure…. sounds really awesome but… *SHUDDERS* The trailer freaked me out. Let me know if it wouldn’t freak me out guys.
Vantage: Yesssss, another show about entering game worlds. And the PV looked really good too. Also it had boobs, but Oki will elaborate I’m sure.
Oki: I want to-…oh num nuts.
Linzz: OMG OMG OMG OMG I READ THE MANGA BECAUSE NANO MADE AN ANNOUNCEMENT SHE’S GOING TO SING THE OPENING SONG. And the whole story is so cool and everything else. The manga had a mature/ecchi genre why does the anime doesn’t when the PV actually showed boobies there? D8 Plus if I’m blogging this, I might just rant about how lame the main character is. =\ But he’s cool when he gets serious and forgets that everything around him is real and killing is just nothing. I’m a back up for this just in case and NANO IS SO COOL OMG YOU GUYS SHOULD HEAR HER SONGS MORE LOLOL

Tenderfoot:Here’s what I got from the PV: EXPLOSIONS!! BOOBS!!! GROSS LOOKING DUDE! MOAR EXPLOSIONS!!! OMG WHY WON’T YOUR PINKIES TOUCH!???! To be fair, it does look very cool and like something I’ll probably watch one episode of.

Summary: Second season of Seitokai no Ichizon.

Team’s Impression:
Eva: I can’t remember whether I watched the first season… *checks MAL* … Nope, but the reviews are good so I’ll watch this as soon as I finish watching the first (of course only if I like it).
Vantage: I’ve watched Season 1 and quite liked it, so I might consider blogging S2. On the other hand I might be put off by the change in Chizuru and Mafuyu’s seiyuu…it won’t be the same. We’ll see.
Oki: If no one picks this up…….no i cant even pretend lol
Linzz: I wonder… but no.

Tenderfoot:Yet another show I haven’t seen season one of (I do watch some anime, I swear!)

Airing Date: October 4th, 2012
Summary:  Sakata Gintoki, Kagura, and Shinpachi Shimura continue to scrape a living as freelance jack-of-all-trades at Edo while amidst the several odd humans and aliens that inhabit the peculiar metropolis.

“Sunrise and TV Tokyo’s official websites for the Gintama television anime series confirmed on Sunday that Gintama will return every Thursday at 6:00 p.m., starting October 4. In addition to “Yorinuki Gintama-san” (a repeat of selected Gintama anime episodes), the broadcast will include new Gintama episodes. The main staff and cast will return for the new episodes.”

Trailer: PV 1
Team’s Impression:
Eva: Threw it in here because, well, new episodes. I don’t watch the show anyways, so this is pretty irrelevant for me.
Vantage: No thanks.
Linzz: I didn’t got the chance to watch this. D8 Well, I did ace some 100+ episodes in one go for some series like PoT and KHR but 200+ and getting a continuation… I don’t think so. Maybe after I catch up with Detective Conan. lol

Tenderfoot:While I’ve heard of this show (and read a couple of the manga chaptes) I’ve never watched it and at 201 old episodes, I don’t think it’s physically (or mentally) possible for me to watch all of them before the new episodes start (that’s just one of the many reasons I don’t like really long shows.) But I hear it’s funny?
Possible Bloggers: No One


Overall Thoughts:

 Eva: *EYES SPARKLES* OH IT’S SO GOOD TO BE BACK! I’m all fired up for this season, there’s such a selection of Romantic Comedy that I hope most of them will turn out to be good, or more accurately most of these are shoujo adaptions so I hope they are loyally adapted. The biggest highlight of this season for me is probably obvious: Kamisama Hajimemashita. I’ve been a fan for few years now and I absolutely head over heels for this series and am ecstatic to see it finally animated. Psycho-Pass is something I’m REALLY looking forward to, others like K (K-Project), Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!, Magi, Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo are what I’m quite keen to blog. I see that some other bloggers are more familiar with the adaptions like, Sukitte Iinayo and Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun than I am, so I’m considering to step aside and let them take those two titles, otherwise sharing is always an option.
Vantage: Hmm. Fall usually gives us an amazingly varied choice of shows to watch, and this time is no different. I did notice the lack of the so-ecchi-it-borders-on-hentai show trend that’s been rising lately, so I was very disappointed uhhhh, neutral *cough* Stuff like K-Project, BTOOOM, Psycho-Pass, Shin Sekai Yori and of course, the amazing Little Busters all caught my interest, and I’m sure a fair few of them will be outstanding series. However, I’m going to have less time on my hands next season, both due to RL commitments and with old shows like SAO or Kokoro Connect carrying over, so the number I’ll be able to blog effectively won’t be very high I say this every season don’t I LOL I’ll try my best though, and hopefully you’re looking forward to Fall as much as I am.
Oki: Unfortunately due to life, other bloggers, and other circumstances I can’t cover too many of the AWESOME AS HELL SHOWS COMING UP THIS FALL. But there are two new special to look forward to. Look forward to the Hot Girl Collective- WHERE I SCREENSHOT EVERYTHING ATTRACTIVE THIS SEASON IN 2D. And learning Japanese with Oki. No you won’t be learning anything. I will be. I’m being a weeb and taking Japanese this semester in college and so in an attempt to be a total asshat I will be watching an anime no one else covers raw, and you will all laugh. AND THAT IS HOW IT WILL WORK SEE YOU THIS FALL.
Linzz: I got excited for Fall because there are more than three series I am totally watching and seeing some series that is gonna be worth to watch. I know I am expecting too much for it and I may get some disappointments because of it but WHATEVERRRRRRR!!! I AM EXCITED. I AM EXPECTING A LOT FROM IT. ROBITICS;NOTES, BTOOOM!, ZETSUEN NO TEMPEST, YOU ARE SO GOING UNDER MY WING THIS FALL. Oh did I mention Nano is such an amazing singer? BTOOOM! is so lucky to have both Nano and May’n sing their opening and ending theme respectively. I know how I hate seeing boobies but really, BTOOOM!’s plot got me carried away and ignored those boobies. haha
As for Robotics;Notes, YESSS YOU LOVELYYYYYY I WILL RAPE YOU PER WEEK. I mean, I look forward to it. 8D I wonder if I should really go for Initial D. Since I really did lost interest on it at the last part of 4th stage (son and dad moments). But I am curious to see the 5th stage because of the arcade game was so nice~

Tenderfoot: Over all, this is probably going to be a season where I say “Oh, I’m only going to be watching four shows, ’cause those are the only ones I’m realllllly interested in” but then I end up with twice that number. I’m most excited for Kamisama Hajimemashita and Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun because I LOVE those mangas, and I’m hoping that the anime adaptations do them justice. Otherwise, you’ll probably find me moping in a corner somewhere. I’m also curious about shows like Magi and Psycho-Pass, because I know nothing about them but for some reason they’ve peaked my interest. Other than that, it seems like a lot of second or third seasons for shows that I’ve (sadly) never seen the first seasons of, or shows that, at least at first glance, aren’t really calling to me like little sirens. I have a feeling I’m going to be going out of my comfort zone and will be watching some types of shows that I’ve never really watched before (like Jormungand and Litchi Hikari Club.) I’ve got my fingers and toes crossed that this season will fall on this side of TOTALLY AWESOME instead of being a let down. BRING ON THE FALL SEASON!
