Summer is upon us... Brace yourself lads...

Ah yes, the cycle has once again begun anew. Many familiar faces have once again appeared, ready to brave the journey. A growing number of rookie adventurers are present as well, anticipating the trials and tribulations to come. 

At the crack of dawn, the gods then descended upon the earth, bringing in tow, gateways to different realms. Some were harsh, others serene. The adventurers watch patiently, as others start choosing their destiny. With various choices of adventure being presented, one man has set upon himself to face a variety of them through. Will he end up victorious or will it be despair that awaits for him at the very end? Oh, the action, the excitement, the thrills and of course not forgetting, the plots.

Anyways, let’s move on from that episode. Hi guys. Summer’s finally here! (It's been a month… Late as ever…) How did spring treat you guys? Well, I had some fun and finally struck gold on Youtube. I literally spend days watching Lost Pause. Hah... Now I'm back to waiting. This video though... 

I may have enjoy it a little too much...

First up is Akagami no Shirayuki-hime and for those who don’t understand Japanese, it’s red hair or god’s white snow princess. Yep, that sounds about right. Haha. Snow White with the Red Hair is quite a nice story to follow. Snow white with hair red as an apple, is herbalist, combining medicinal herbs to create remedies for her townsfolk but standing out isn’t wonderful as people thought it would be. 

I quite like this series. A romance story that reminds me of various others. A casual story to watch, found.

Up next is Aquarion Logos, another addition for the Aquarion series. Hmm… This series is something I’m iffy about. I don’t really know what to describe of it. It wasn’t bad and it wasn’t good either, but I’ll stick to it for a while longer. Wouldn’t hurt to try.

Chaos Dragon: Sekiryuu Sen’eki follows after. Another one I’m not sure about. I find it okay to watch and interesting with the concept of needing to *cough* sacrifice *cough* friends in order to use the power of the red dragon. It sorts of remind me of Danganronpa with the way they show who’s dead after the episode ends.

Following that is Charlotte. I wasn’t sure on what to expect of it especially when they released a short teaser of it as it was accompanying the Angel Beat visual novel trailer. 

Completely clueless. Totally thought that it will be some emotional piece throughout. I know it will be soon. But man, did I enjoy it. I was laughing during most parts. They definitely have imperfect powers.

Next is Classrom ★Crisis. Hmm.. this one is a bit weird for me as I picked it out of curiosity. It was not bad and also not that good. I find it a bit hard to like as I am still considering whether I should stick with it.

Durarara!!x2 Ten is next. The long anticipated 2nd has arrived. It started from where we left off last time with Izaya stabbed by some character. Really can't wait to see how the whole arc fares out.

Gakkou Gurashi! is definitely one of this season where horror has a new face. 

As I've read (more like chance upon) the manga a while back, it definitely made me look forward to it as I really want to see it play out, animated. Come on, that beginning was caught me off guard (when I read the manga obviously).

Following closely is Gangsta. 

I really like the opening for this show. It’s really fun to watch with the action scenes and the backstory of the main characters. It gives off a Black Lagoon type of feel with its characters and the setting, which I really like. Definitely anticipating each episode that comes out.

Next is Gatchaman Crowds Insight. I don’t really know what to say for this. I just want to watch it, as it looks nice.

Following that is Gate: Jietai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri. This is something that I was looking forward since its announcement. I really enjoyed the manga because of its setting and the struggles face from both sides, Japan against the world and the Kingdom against the overwhelming might of Japan. 

Rory, Best Girl
And also because of Rory Mercury. C’mon, it’s a Goth Lolita. Now we just need to wait for Gundams to appear and wreck shop. I wonder what their reaction would be if they had seen the Gundam statue in Tokyo. Haha.. It’s a steel giant! Speaking of which, have you guys heard of the robot match between Japan and America. I wonder who will win? Can’t wait to see it.

This one is an unexpected one but in a good way. Himouto! Umaru-chan is up next. 

I fell in love with it in the first 3 minutes. IT’S TOO KAWAII! KAWAII SUGIRU! The opening is just addicting to listen, which I can’t wait for the album to be released. 

Which version do guys like best?
I immediately look up on the manga and read till chapter 114, awaiting for the next.
Hngh~ So adorable
I am kind of disappointed though as they move the airing date from Thursday to Sunday. I wonder why they did that… Nope wait.. it’s back to Thursday. What the hell is happening..?

Next is another adaptation from a manga and quite a famous one too. Jitsu wa Watashi wa is a rom-com which is a really good read I must say. I kept laughing at their antics (and the tsukkomis about it having a better protagonist). I really find the episodes nice to watch.

Next is something that I’ve develop curiosity about ever since I chance upon it. Joukamachi no Dandelion caught my interest with its summary but I couldn't find any of its manga anywhere online. So I decided to be patient and wait for the anime to come out and it was quite enjoyable. And those sexy legs of hers. Mmm…

The next one not only has legs. It has plot and a lot of it. Kangoku Gakuen is here! This hilarious manga adaptation is just amazing that I can’t even really describe it with the correct words (or maybe my vocabulary is just zilch) I still can’t believe it, that it has gotten an anime adaptation even though I kept replaying the part where the MC get stab by high heels in the… you know.. Ha.. good memories of when I first read the manga. I just kept going.

Next is another manga adaptation and quite a favourite of mine. 

Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou or MonMusu. It wasn’t as close as I expected it to be but it is quite nicely done. 

I really wanted them to animate Lala in it as well but she came out after so it’s okay. Rachnee is best girl.

Following that is the second season of Non Non Biyori. It’s still as adorable as ever as well as relaxing to watch. Seems that they are giving each character an episode just like the first, which I don’t mind. 

Still entertaining to watch.

This next one is one of my favourites this season. Overlord is not your typical “stuck in game world” anime, well to me that is (so convincing). I really like the MC’s character as being this supreme being with max level (like The New Gate) and wanting to spread the his name in order to find anyone who also came from his world. 

I never thought I’ll be siding with a skull type character but I sure am liking it. I’ve read the WN till halfway through chapter 5 eagerly waiting for the next one to be translated.

Rokka no Yuusha is something that caught my interest when I was scrolling through the season’s list in Spring. A twist in “the band of heroes must gather and fight the Maou” setting is really an interesting idea. 

Also like how Adlet Mayer (totally did not look up his name) uses tools and trickery to win his opponents unlike what you see in various heroes with their strength and power. 

Adlet use Flamethrower
It’s refreshing.

Next is Senki Zesshou Symphogear GX. Just here for Nana Mizuki. Haha.. Kidding… Interested to see how they’ll progress from what happened last season. And also to check out new songs they’re going to sing. Mainly the songs.

Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai is next on my list. I totally didn’t picked this out because I repeatedly watched Hentai Kamen or anything. 

Seriously, she must be Hentai Kamen's child
Yup, totally not because of that. I just wanted an anime with a long name for me to watch this season , that’s all. Please, don't accuse me of being such a child for picking this out. 

You activated my trap card
I don’t have any thoughts like that whatsoever.

Yup, totally don’t have those thoughts. Watching To LOVE-Ru Darkness 2nd not because of the fanservice but for its wonderful plot. Come on. I’m watching for the… for the.. for.. for Celine, yes.. Definitely that. Yeah..

Ushio to Tora is another curiosity of mine that I picked up. I have nothing to really say about it as I have not watched it yet. I regards this as a substitute for any that I might drop later. But if I am really curious about it. I’ll watch it soon enough.

Last but not least, Working!!! I really like this anime a lot especially the first season. This season however felt a bit lacking for me for some strange reason. What’s missing I wonder..

That was my list for this season. May add some on the journey there and maybe, try not to drop any as well. But all in all, this season seems fun to watch. The Fall list also looks exciting. Have you guys watched the second PV for One Punch Man? 

It looks awesome. Must wait for it. It’ll be here in a few more months.

Now back to work. I have another pile waiting for me. I hope to be able to go to events this month. Lets see… 2015 EOY Cosplay Festival at Marina Barrage on the 15th to 16th and 2015 International Cosplay Day at SCAPE on the 22nd… There’s also this card games event that’s happening that I forgot when was it.. Do I have work on those day.. Probably... Guh…

Mata ne~
