This summer's line up isn't that bad (those that were expected to be nice, seem nice and the like), but if I had to mention one anime that surprised me the most, it's going to be Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi aka "Sunday Without God" (it's actually aired on Sundays), it's so f*cking deep, I mean seriously, sure I have seen deep anime after their full story and the like, but this ? It's only a few episodes in the story and it's so f*cking deep, I'm not sure if I have ever seen any anime go that deep that quickly, I actually wonder if the rest of the anime will be that good. Certainly a happy surprise (now I have to wonder if they made a really good adaptation, or perhaps as usual, the source (LN) is even better than that ?).

Yes, it's this time of the year, of presenting the upcoming Autumn 2013 Anime Preview (certain changes might be made in time ):
Let's start from the top of the preview list and mention animes possibly worth watching or interesting:
- BlazBlue: After Memory - yes people, it's finally here, the anime adaptation of the BlazBlue 2D HD Fighting game series, I'm not sure how good the anime will be, but the story in this series of games is mind-blowing for a fighting game, yes, it's good here is a little bit of it:
- a new Gundam, the Gundam Build Fighters - is it me or each new gundam seems to be more childissh than the previous one ? I probably won't watch this,
- Kill la Kill - already mentioned in one of my previous posts, so yeah I will probably check this out,
- Valvrave the Liberator Part 2 - yep I will watch it, since it is basically Code Geas in space, more or less, plus I have seen the first season ,
- a remake anime, Yozakura Quartet: Hana no Ulta - this seems quite popular from what I heard, the fact that it got a series, ova series and a remake seems to confirm it,
- Kuroko no Basket S2 - didn't watch the first one that much and I have technically dropped the manga, so...
- Log Horizon - another anime about people imprisoned in virtual reality game,
- Freezing S2 - didn't watch it, but it's popular enough to mention it,
- Infinite Stratos S2 - why did this get a second season ? Sure I watched the first one but it was so-so if not worse, really why ?
- Coppelion - this sounds familiar and interesting,
- White Album 2 - hmmmmmmmm,
- Walkure Romanze - this, might or not might be what it it meant to be, so to confirm what it is, I might check it out ,
- To Aru Hikuushi e no Kouita - this also sounds familiar, might check it out,
- NouCome - this seems to be one of the lolz animes, might be funny,
- pupa - sounds familiar, if it's dark enough, it might be good,
- Phi Brain S3 - I have seen a few episodes of the S1, but for them to roll out a 3rd already... is that good, or is it cheap to produce ?
- Galileo Donna - I'm not sure what this might be,
- Samurai Flamenco - this might be an old-school hero anime, or not , hard to say,
- Magi S2 - I prefer the manga,
- Strike the Blood - people love vampire stories, especially about those dubbed "the world's most powerful vampire", there is also a girl so there will probably some romance,
- Tokyo Ravens - the scanlations must be behind, because the current scanlated chapters are not enough for the anime season, unless they stretch it out... oh well, I might check it out,
- Arpeggio of Blue Steel: Ars Nova - ...well...
Well as everyone can see, there a few blood/vampire anime, a few mecha anime and a few sports anime coming out, for details click the red link or the check the image in the spoiler .
Update: Ver. 3.5

Winter 2013/14 Anime Preview
Winter 2013/14 Anime Preview:
- Nobunagun - well the spirit of Nobunaga become a Machin-gun-like weapon to fight off invaders from another realm...
- Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta - this feels like something I have already seen...
- Pupa - not, well this is a story with an extreme gore and is made by DEEN, so it will probably fail as an adaptation,
- Mahou Sensou - seems pretty interesting, the story about Magic,
- Nisekoi - the manga is seemingly stretching out for awhile now, but hey it's a first? anime adaptation of the author's work,
- Z/X Ignition - this is seemingly based on some kind of card game,
- Hozuki no Reitetsu - sounds like comedy,
- Witch Craft Works - the manga is alright,
- Sekai... - another parody/comedy, about an evil organization led by little girl trying to take over the world,
- Wizard Barristers - ... - as the name implies a about being a Barrister in the world with Magic, so a Barrister of Magicians, sounds fun and pretty original ;P,
- Hamatora - about people with special powers,
- Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shhitai! Season 2 - have been waiting for this , plus I think that a movie from the same author is coming out as well (it has a similar setting),
- Seitokai... Season 2 - they sure pulled out a lot of OVAs between s1 and s2,
- Noragami - I had my eyes on a manga about this for quite awhile (didn't read it yet ),
- Nobunaga the Fool - surprisingly, this seems to be like Star Ocean, it's just that some characters have famous historic names, like Leonardo da Vinci and alike,
- Silve Spoon Season 2 - some people should be happy about it,
- Sailor Moon - they rescheduled this remake last time and might also do it this time.

Spring 2014 anime chart (march -> may)
SPRING 2014 ANIME CHART (MARCH -> MAY):
Wow, quite a lot of big titles are coming this time around. Among them are:
- Soul Eater Not,
- Mekaku City Actors (seriously this looks exactly like Kagerou Days :O),
- Gokukoku no Brynhild,
- Fairy Tail,
- Mahou Shoujou Wars (well this seems to be an original ),
- Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei,
- Black Bullet,
- Hitsugihime no Chaika (perhaps this time it will appear in this season ;p),
- No Game, no Life,
- Sidonia no Kishi,
- Akuma no Riddle,
- Mangaka-san to Assistant-san,
- an Avengers spin-off.
Seriously almost all of those are popular manga or novels adaptations. Final OVA of Gundam Unicorn is also meant to appear in the spring season.

Mushishi season 2 will likely be an instant 10/10.

So no new Gundam yet, huh? GBF is really really good, but there's only 5 episodes on it. That last Unicorn OVA should give me time to catch up before the new series (G-Reco? Origins?)
