Nana's Fall'17 Outlook

Fall is one of those times where it suddenly feels cathartic to sit in a park and gaze at falling red and yellow leaves... until the cool breeze blows dust straight into my face. Life is just so unpoetic when you're not an anime protagonist. That being said, it will soon be time to live vicariously through a brand new season of anime!

It's not revolutionary for darker themes to creep in with action and comedy series during the fall anime season, but there are a few standouts for me. Let's get started!

1. Hoozuki no Reitetsu Season 2

HnR is the anime that I have always been most keen on for a new season. It is definitely one of my favourite anime and I have watched it at least four times. The story centers around Hoozuki, an oni who works under King Enma, AKA the Big Man of Hell. For lack of better description, Hoozuki routinely intimidates and bullies the Great King into doing his work seriously. With a colourful supporting cast of various underworld-dwelling creatures, I highly recommend this slightly morbid comedy to anyone interested in the supernatural and Japanese folktales!

2. Kekkai Sensen & Beyond

KKSS was extremely well-received among my circle of friends despite its deviation from the manga and I am glad a new season has been decided on! If the first season was any indication, we can expect more shenanigans from our motley crue of anime blood benders. Man, I absolutely can't wait to see Zapp's gorgeous self onscreen again!! (ง ˃̶͈̀ᗨ˂̶͈́)۶

3. Osake wa Fuufu ni Natte kara

The "slightly sweet tipsy couple comedy" centers on the 28-year-old senior public relations company staff member Chisato Mizusawa. The story follows Chisato's daily life as she enjoys her husband Sora's cocktails. However, she has secrets that only he knows..? It seems really adorable! I might read the manga beforehand...

4. Kino no Tabi

We're definitely not going to see a let up on light novels being adapted to manga and honestly, why would we? Most, if not all, have been rather successful! Kino is the main protagonist in the series and travels to different countries with her talking motorcycle Hermes. She is skilled in combat, carrying both guns and knives, and is accustomed to life as a traveler. To those she meets, she is invariably polite and answers questions directly. Sounds like my kind of protagonist!

5. Ousama Game

An entire high school class of 32 people receive a message on their cellphones from a person known only as the "King." The messages contain orders that the students must obey, or they risk the punishment of death. With their lives on the line, the students soon find out that the orders are getting more and more extreme as time goes on. While the manga was not as outstanding as others in the mystery/horror genre, I feel like having the story animated with suitable background music might give it a fresh breath of life.

6. Shokugeki no Souma Season 3

A mainstay in my outlook posts, simply because I am an absolute glutton. I love the art, the lighthearted moments, the serious moments... You can say I am weirdly passionate about animated food. Also I gotta admit, Shinomiya is the best looking megane in anime... ever. (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ


7. Dies irae

I am slightly apprehensive about it as it is adapted from a visual novel, but I really like its setting in the anime introduction!

8. Sengoku Night Blood

While I always start off with high hopes for my otome games, I tend to get irritated and lose interest quickly, and unfortunately the same often happens with anime adapted from otome. That being said, I have a serious weakness for Sengoku era themed ikemen and can't help myself from wanting to watch this... ( ˘ ³˘)♥ <- a lost cause (me)

9. Urahara

The poster is so pretty... Not to mention, the aliens and Harajuku, a wacky combo that I am keen to see! (In fact, I am getting mild Tsuritama x magical girl vibes.)

Pretty long list this time! There are lots of interesting anime this season, I hope I have enough time to watch them all! What anime are you looking out for this fall?
