Spring 2015 Season Watch List

A new season is upon us and after sampling a few shows this is what I’ll be checking out this season.

In no particular order:

FoodWars-GN01

Food Wars: A cooking show where an aspiring middle school cook gets accepted to an elite culinary academy for high school. Looks to be fun to watch, but on the ecchi side. I won’t be letting the 11 year old watch this one.

Is it wrong to try to pick up girls in a dungeon?: Adventuring, dungeons, warriors, girls, gods…Will it be good? Not sure yet, but has potential. Also somewhat on the ecchi side. Another I won’t let the 11 year old watch.

My Teen Romantic Comedy Snafu Too: I loved the first season of this, hopefully the second will be as good. I am fine with the animation studio change thus far.

Kinmoza: English exchange students in Japan. A cute show. Pretty harmless. I think my son has watched at least half of the first season of this already.

Nisekoi

Nisekoi: Raku, Chitoge, Onadera,and Tachibana are back! 2nd season of this harem comedy by Shaft. I really enjoyed the first season and have read a bunch of the manga. We’ll see how much they cover in this season and how much filler they ditch.

Plastic Memories: This looks like an interesting offering about a world where androids (or something like that) have synthetic souls that only have a life span of 9 years before they deteriorate. The show centers around the squad that is going to retrieve the androids at the end of their life span. It has got a good premise. Hopefully it will be a good show.

Punchline-730x614

Punchline: A guy wakes up after a terrorist attack that happened on a bus back in his apartment building to find that another spirit is occupying his body and he can’t return to it. Now he has to find a book with a ritual to get himself back to his body. But there is a twist. In the building where the book is lives several girls. Fine…Right? No, this is anime. Here’s the twist: If he happens to see a girl’s panties, or gets excited, he has such an extreme reaction that he attracts an asteroid to the planet that destroys the earth. This happens…he turns back time and keeps trying to get his body back. Well obviously I won’t let the younger one watch this. I am not sure if I’ll continue or not.

72544

Re-Kan! : A girl who can see and befriends ghosts. The others around her can’t see them for the most part, but accept her for the most part, except for one classmate who refuses to believe in spirits. It is a goofy comedy. The jury is still out about how appropriate it is….there is a perverted cat.

Sound! Euphonium: About a girl who played in the brass band in middle school who decides to join the band club in high school. It looks like a harmless school anime. My largest worry would be whether it will be able to maintain my interest.

Well, That’s it for now. What are you watching?

    Anime can be a minefield for the kids. This season doesn’t change much in that department. Much of this season’s airing anime hasn’t really caught my eye. I will be watching Plastic Memories after being convinced to do so. I look forward to your impressions later this season!

      The minefield is kind of why I started this blog. While there are ratings out there some of them are subjective. What offends each person is different. While my impressions aren’t exhaustive, they are kind of there to let a parent know what is in a show that they may not like.
      Hope you like Plastic Memories. It looks like it has potential.

    Denny imitating Woody Allen’s voice:

    Well you DID say that you like “heavy metal” …
    You know, the TUBA … is “heavy” … and is made of “metal” …

    (Denny backs away slowly) …

    I recently read volumes 1 and 2 of Food Wars and I really like the series. I agree that this show is not recommended for minors. Read the first chapter and you will understand.

    As for Nisekoi, I can’t wait to see Kosaki’s sister Haru and Paul McCoy. Haru is pretty funny in the manga, especially her friend Fuu.

      The first episode of Food Wars made it pretty clear that it wasn’t friendly for younger viewers. With the clothes bursting off the people who ate his food as they hit new levels of ecstasy made it pretty clear it was going to be on the ecchi side. 🙂
      I agree, it should be interesting to see Haru and Paula. In the opening you see all of the manga references to Raku as Haru’s “Prince”.
