It’s time for a roundup of what’s hot in the season. Haven’t started following the watch list? Check out the previous post for a sum-up of what’s coming this season. There are many series run beyond my expectations and it’s an story that I don’t really have much time to follow all of them. Sadly, I will have to pick what’s the most suitable for me and, of course, for the rest of us.
Sora no Otoshimono: Forte (2nd Season) / そらのおとしもの f (フォルテ) (12 episodes)
Second season of the series and I don’t think there are many reasons to stop me from following them all. It’s awesome but it seems not very suitable for all ages :) You are warned. It’s a nice story and it runs out of the circle of normal Harem Anime, it’s fun, exciting and seductive. The Manga seems run slowly in the process and we should not be able to watch the third season in a year of two.
MM! / えむえむっ！ (12 episodes)
At first I thought this is not something I should follow. OK, I admit that I really like the cute girls in the official website and that’s why start my way. Right at the starting point of the first episode, I fell in love with it. The character is cute and again, it’s Jun Fukuyama (福山 潤), guess I just love his voice. There’s no need to talk about the plot of the series and you might just love it since the first beginning. Definitely one of the best of the season and you will never want to miss it.
Bakuman. / バクマン。 (25 episodes)
Once I read the preview I started to like the series but when I watched the first episode, I got a little bit disappointed. Partly because of the success of the unusual propose, partly because of our male protagonist doesn’t seem to work hard for it. But I will stick to it, partly because it ranks the third in the Poll and partly because I still have faith in the plot that it could be extremely attractive soon.
Hakuouki Hekketsu-roku (2nd Season) / 薄桜鬼 碧血録 (12 episodes)
The reason I follow this series is basically that I watched the first season and it’s quite good in all. Though the plot is a little bit old but the overall quality, the music and CVs are quite well. Will recommend to those who watched the first season.
Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai / 俺の妹がこんなに可愛いわけがない (12 episodes)
One of my favorite of the series besides MM!. Quite ironic that I didn’t take it a lot after I read the Manga a few months ago. It’s just terrible (Sorry, the illustrator of the Manga)! But if I started by reading the novel instead of the Manga, probably I would fall love with it. Never mind, and actually I have already fell in love with the series since the first episode. It’s awesome! Recommended to all fans, especially to those who has Imoutos :) Maybe you will find them more cute/not cute.
Yosuga no Sora / ヨスガノソラ (13 episodes)
I assume you have either read the official website or see some posters about this series. It was aired on AT-X, and AT-X, you know what I mean. Thus, this series is not recommended for people under 18 and I have already surprised since the first episode, and of course, the latest episode, there are just too many scenes about Ecchi, guess they may just made another Ecchi Anime instead. The plot is as old as my broken bicycle and the only thing I like is the illustrators behind it.
Otome Youkai Zakuro / おとめ妖怪 ざくろ (13 episodes)
This is quite good a series and it’s a shame that it attracts few attentions. The CV list is one of the most gorgeous ones of the season and the story is somehow interesting. Cannot stop laughing during the first episode and Takahiro Sakurai (櫻井 孝宏) is quite good at his role :)
Shinryaku! Ika Musume / 侵略！イカ娘 (13 episodes)
Another fun series, talking about an IKA transformed to a little girl and how she conquer the world. Wrong, you got it totally wrong. We have three pieces of small stories each episode and laugh all the way to the end. You may want to have a try if you want to relax a bit from your heavy work. Try it out, you will get totally refreshed.
Motto To Love-Ru -Trouble- (2nd Season) / もっとTo LOVEる -とらぶる- (12 episodes)
The Manga of the series has started over again and it turns to be evil than ever before. I will get to know what I mean when you read it. But it’s a good news that the series came back to life again, especially such a great series like this one. Beside the Harem part, the love story or the main line of the story is quite unclear/clear. It’s good to finally have a chance to see how Rito make his decision.
Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai / 神のみぞ知るセカイ (12 episodes)
Actually the series is a little bit below my expectation. The character design is a little bit confused and I mistook the male protagonist as female. And what’s more, I have never see school uniform of this kind before, it’s just, unique. But anyway, the story seems to have a one-episode-per-story pattern and of course one-kiss-per-episode. Though it’s a little bit born but may follow it for while to check it out.
To Aru Majutsu no Index (2nd Season) / とある魔術の禁書目録 (13 episodes)
Second season of the series and ranks on the top of our watch list. It’s definitely a good series and the novel receive warm welcomes. One you cannot miss.
Fortune Arterial: Akai Yakusoku / FORTUNE ARTERIAL 赤い約束 (12 episodes)
Quite a nice Harem Anime above my expectation. The overall quality is fine but the Harem part is a little bit too obvious and makes me a little uncomfortable :)
There are still some series that I followed this Fall, say, Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru (それでも町は廻っている), Star Driver Kagayaki no Takuto (STAR DRIVER 輝きのタクト) and some others that you may want to check out in our guide post.
