|Oi Summer! You are filled with goddamn heat and humidity. Go away, already! Still, this time I’m getting lots of rain so it’s kinda bearable now. Shows wise, I’m almost amazed with the number of action, adventure, fantasy and sci-fi shows. They are literally taking over with giant mechas and tech concepts, which is fine by me. Though, everyone needs their own RomCom, SoL and Supernatural fix. I’m kinda disappointed with the low number of latter and even variety in comedies but it’s okay as I always have pending Gintama episodes to fall back on. I hope to be dazzled by noitaminA Rendezvous and promising Josei. Let’s see how this season goes~|
|Where has time gone? All I remember from spring is work. Oh and yeah I took a vacation so I had summer early. But man, that feels like so long ago. But yay, summer is finally here! Oh my friend the sun, how I have missed you so so much. Even though I only see you for a few moments of the day due to work, I still do my best to remember how you look like. *Ahem*. Man, this summer is going to be very busy for me. I’m unsure if you’ll see me around much (more than usual hah) but I’ll try to get something in. As for the anime season in general, I’m not really looking forward to much this anime season. I dunno why but nothing really had me going. There’s a few bishies that I have my eye on and a few shows/movies that I’m anticipating, but that’s probably it. Oh well.|
|Summer may mean that school is out, but if anything I’m actually more busy right now than I would be during the school year thanks to my BRIGHT IDEA to tackle studying for medical school entrance exams, volunteering at a hospital and working part-time at my dojo. In a way, it’s a bit of a good thing that the summer season has so few shows that have peaked my interest. I wouldn’t have time to watch everything if this was a repeat of the spring season! Of course, there’s no need to be completely pessimistic as there are always at least a handful of good shows. Maybe we’ll even come across some pleasant surprises!|
|Summer has always had this negative atmosphere for me, simply because of the unbearable, occasionally suffocating heat that likes to stick around for three to four months down here in So Cal. Because of my excessive grumpiness due to this HEAT, I’ve come to strongly dislike a majority of the shows this summer season. Nothing really sparks for me personally, but hey, who knows? I’ve been greatly surprised in the past! Hopefully a good majority of these shows turn out be quite enjoyable so I can have an excuse to stay inside all day with the air conditioner, my best summer friend~.|
|Time to put away Aquarion EVOL and Haiyore Nyaruko-san! for now and kick back for summer time which means random thunderstorms, rain and lots of random hurricane warnings for the Floridians out there…ah well at least I have plenty of anime saved up to watch during those boring times. So readers! What anime series in the summer season has you completely excited? For me personally I can say there are a few that certainly look interesting and of course a few series on this list that look completely dull and boring. I predict this will be the season of Sword Art Online or possibly Rinne no Lagrange season two! HELL YES BRING ON THE ACTION <3|
|Guys, it’s time for all of us to go Have A Summah! We gotta reach out to our favorite DL and streaming sites and grab those summah animes! You can feel it in your fingers and from the glow of your monitor. Whether you like summah anime or not, it’s an undeniable season that can’t be skipped. What’s that? You don’t wanna have a summah? Bad anime? You watch some bad anime, so what, overcome them. Mock them as much as you can, watch them for the lulz, and Have A Summah!|
|Summer sucks, literally and figuratively. First the sun will be hotter than usual. Why do I need a hotter sun again? Is sun even necessary in this hot country (actually, yes)? Second, I have to pack up for a new term because my college will be in another city. Leaving all those artbooks and little figurines I bought is going to make me cry and fall into depression. How will I be able to live without my lesbian doujin under my bed? Third, summer anime usually sucks. Why would I want to watch some misleading pedophilia by SILVER LINK? Who cares if someone loses his sexual desire? Why is DEEN animating dead people again? Because they’re hot LIKE SUMMER? Gosh, looking at the list of summer anime is making me depressed already. Thankfully there will be some decent stuff that will save me from the heat of summer, like Natsuyuki Rendezvous. Maybe I won’t be dying from this year’s summer heat.|
|Summer anime is finally here! …Unfortunately, that means my summer vacation is half over and I now have to compete for space with high school students if I go anywhere. OTL IN LESS DEPRESSING NEWS, there are quite a few shows that I’m looking forward to this season (and this is the crap season)! If you haven’t heard me fangirl enough, I’m extremely excited about Arcana Famiglia coming out (No. You’re not going to hear me shut up about it until it reaches its last episode and then it all starts again if there’s a season 2). Unfortunately (or fortunately?) Hiiro is on hiatus, so this won’t be THE season of otome games turned anime, but on the plus side, Lagrange will be fantastic. Will the rest of the season be as fabulous? That remains to be seen.|
|This year so far has been amazing, and even though the upcoming season doesn’t look as if it’ll live up to winter or spring, there are a few shows I’m very excited to watch! ´▽｀ PA Works is making a return with Tari Tari, some fun new romcoms like KoiChoco are airing, and of course there are plenty of awesome sequels like Lagrange, Horizon, and Yuru Yuri! It seems as though there will be plenty of diversity this summer, so at least there’s a little for everyone. Bring on Summer!~|
|Spring season’s rather large number of good shows put a hold to my plans to reduce the number of shows I watch, but perhaps I can do that for the Summer season. Not many people seem to be excited about it, and I can’t say I am either, though that’s how I usually approach new seasons. It’s almost impossible to predict how shows will turn out based merely on premise and even the production staff (did anyone see this season’s Sankarea coming?), so I try get a feel for the buzz and give almost everything a shot. No sequels for shows I’ve watched, though I’m in the process of watching Moyashimon so that I can watch season 2 as it airs.|
|Sorry for the delayed review but as you can clearly see, all of us have been quite busy with our fourth anniversary and then Aniblog Tourney, the Quarterfinals of which starts today. We hope you support us with your vote, and enjoy our upcoming Summer first impressions starting 2nd July.
Alright, then! LET’s GO NYAAAAAA~
