Interest: 6/10. I’m not really a fan of romance, but it’s got people like Ami Koshimizu and Megumi Hayashibara, so I think it’s worth a try.

The game takes place in an alternate version of the present where magic-users called Wizards (the player characters) fight against Emulators, strange beings invading the world who are immune to physical attacks.
Interest: 7/10. The animation looks pretty nice, and it has a Shakugan no Shana feel to it.

Air Date: October3

This is the story of the surprisingly tangled loves of three elementary school girls. Kokonoe Rin, old beyond her years, is extrovert and energetic, and has a crush on her teacher, Aoki-sensei. Nor is she the slightest bit reticent about showing it, with embarassing explicitness. Her friends, Kuro and Mimi, likewise have love in their hearts, though they are less willing to display it.
Interest: 4/10. I’m not into CP and pedophilia, sorry.

Placed in a futuristic setting, Dragonaut ~The resonance~ seems to be about a battle royale among various groups of people. Little information is known, but the trailer is impressive..
Interest: 9/10. It’s made by Gonzo, so expect some low quality episodes and an altogether entertaining series. Besides, the seiyuu cast features all of the SOS-Dan.

Tomoya Okazaki is a third year student labelled as a delinquent. Everything seems to be unchanging for his school life until he meets Nagisa, and Tomoya finds that his life is about to change. He starts to have dreams of a bleak world and meets a girl who has the ability to fuse junk together in order to create things, and doing so, creates a body out of junk for him. He is then reborn into this empty world and follows around the girl, the only two existences who are “alive.”
Interest: 8/10. This being another KyoAni work, expect awesome animation. The plot seems kinda vague to me, but I do want to give this series a try, considering that it’s made by KyoAni, the people who brought Haruhi and Kona-chan to life, and that there is still one more season to go before Haruhi 2.

Mobile Suit Gundam 00

Gundam 00

Title in Kanji: 機動戦士ガンダム00 <ダブルオー>

Animation Production: Sunrise

Air Date: October 6
Opening Theme: “DAYBREAK’S BELL” by L’arc~en~Ciel
Ending Theme: “Wana (罠; Trap)” by The Back Horn
Official Website: http://www.gundam00.net/
It is the year A.D. 2307. Fossil fuels on Earth have been depleted entirely, with mankind turning to the next available power source: solar energy. During this time, 3 orbital elevators with solar power generation systems are built, each under control by the Union of Solar Energy and Free Nations (formerly United States of America), the Human Reform League (Russia, China and India) and the Advanced European Union. However, not all countries are able to enjoy the benefits of this system, leading to widespread resentment and war. Arising out of the conflict, a mysterious non-profit military organization known as Celestial Being appears, dedicated to end all warfare using Mobile Suits called Gundam. This begins the stories of Gundam Meisters (pilots) Setsuna F. Seiei, Lockon Stratos, Allelujah Haptism and Tiera Erde as they are thrown into conflict between the 3 superpowers and the other various factions.
Interest: 10/10. SEIJI MIZUSHIMA (FMA DIRECTOR) is doing a Gundam. Must.Watch. Same sound director as FMA, Miyano Mamoru as lead Character, and L’Arc~en~Ciel doing the OP. What more could you ask for?

ef~tale of memories

Mangaka: minori
Animation Production: SHAFT
Genre: Romance
Air Date: October 6
Official Website: http://www.ef-memo.com/
The story revolves around the protagonist Hirono Hiro, a poor high school boy who draws shoujo manga for his living. One cold Christmas night after meeting a very strange woman in church, his bike gets stolen by another strange girl. He runs after her and finds her collapsed on the street. Her name is Miyamura Miyako and her bag got stolen by a man on a motorbike. Soon after, they start hanging out together, enjoying highschool life and whatnot. Hiro’s life is also strongly dictated by Shindou Kei, his childhood friend.
Interest:6/10. The character style is not to my liking, and it’s romance too. Might give it a try though.

Prism Ark

Prism Ark

Title in Kanji: プリズム・アーク
Mangaka: Yuuji Hosono
Animation Production: Front Line
Genre: Mecha, Action, Drama, Military
Air Date: October 7
Opening Theme: “Soshite Boku wa…” by Yui Sakakibara
Ending Theme: “Yuen no Amulet” by momo-i
Official Website: http://www.p-ark.tv/
The world of Prism Ark takes place in the equivalent of our world’s Crusade era in Western Europe. The geography is a little changed and there are stuff like magic and dragons.
The main players are Wind Land, Viella, and the Sablum Empire. Viella of Victaly is equal to Rome of Italy, and the Sablum Empire is equal to the Byzantine Empire. Sabus is the god of Islam and Rerihion is the god of Christianity. Like our world’s Christianity, Viella serves as the headquarters of the Pope and believers of Rerihion.
Wind Land is where the Holy Roman Empire would be. In Wind Land, it is always spring, and the greeting is “Good wind” instead of “Good morning”.
Prior to the events that begin in Prism Ark, Viella has already called several crusades in the name of Rerihion to reclaim the Holy Land. However this was completely stopped after awhile and Rerihion and Sabus believers lived in peace and harmony from that day.
The game begins with the King and Queen making a journey to Viella to get their one year daughter, the Princess of Wind Land, baptized. However, their escort was suddenly attacked by the Sablum Empire, who were supposed to be their good allies. At this battle was the first appearance of the Angels, a imposing being with wings and halo, whose height easily doubled men’s, and came wielding never before seen power.
Afterwards, the King, the Queen, and the Princess were all missing and were assumed either killed from the ambush, or in hiding. Outraged, the Pope immediately re-established the Crusades and ordered one to invade Sablum. From then on, Wind Land and the Sablum Empire were in war. However, this war has not ended years after years and continues on to this day, and still, there are no King or Queen ruling Wind Land…
Finally getting the acceptance notice, Hyaweh travels to the Isle of Rozenberg, which is holded by the Rozenberg Family, the most powerful family in Wind Land, second to the absence Royal Family. In there is the best school for knights wannabes, privately funded by Duke Kizarov Rozenberg, the number one Knight in Wind Land.
However, as it turns out, Hyaweh is actually two whole weeks late and from there on spirals his wacky journey to knighthood in the midst of a devastating war taking place, which will hit home closer than what anyone could’ve imagined.
Interest: 9/10. The plot seems pretty interesting, and the unusual art style is good to the eyes. Btw, this series is seemingly adapted from an eroge.



Title in Kanji: みなみけ
Mangaka: Coharu Sakuraba
Animation Production: Doumu
Genre: Comedy, Slice-of-Life
Air Date: October 7
Official Website:http://www.starchild.co.jp/special/minami-ke/The three Minami sisters (Haruka, Kana and Chiaki) live together, taking care of each other. With nobody to answer to but themselves and each other, the three sisters get up to some very odd shenanigans.
Interest: 9/10. Another Ono Daisuke and Chihara Minori work, and I’m fond of slice-of-life series.

Jyuushin Enbu

Title in Kanji: 機動戦士ガンダム00 <ダブルオー>
Mangaka: Hiromu Arakawa
Animation Production: Studio Flag
Genre: Fantasy, Shounen
Air Date: October 7
Ending Theme: “Kakegae no nai Hito e” by Mai Hoshimura
Official Website: http://www.jyushin.jp/
A period piece, Jūshin Enbu features Taitou, a young man who hates the empire that rules at the time, with his sister Laila as they learn of a mysterious power Taitou holds, unbeknownst to him. Taitou is the incarnation of a mysterious star that grants him a huge amount of power that he has yet to fully master. Joining them is Ryuukou, who has power similar to Taitou, just more honed.
After Taitou’s coming of age ceremony, which required him being beaten by Ryuukou, he is given the Kenkaranpu, described as a conqueror’s sword, which Taitou is not even capable of drawing. Soon after, he and Laila are greeted by a man named Shimei, who wanted to take the sword. After a quick exchange of blows, Shimei explains the source of Taitou’s power, the star Hagun, one of the most powerful Hokushin-Tenkun. When Shimei uses his own sword’s power to cause Laila to stop breathing, Taitou becomes so angry he releases Hagun’s power, draws Kenkaranpu and pins Shimei to the wall by throwing the sword through his stomach. He then turns to Ryuukou and attacks.
Despite his best efforts, Ryuukou could not overcome Hagun’s power. It was only a resuscitated Laila’s intervention (along with a nasty head butt) that brought Taitou to his senses. However, they all soon learn that Shimei had escaped with the sword.
At midnight, Taitou sneaks out to recover the sword. As he is leaving Ryuukou and Laila quickly join him on his journey.
It seems to be rooted in Chinese folklore and history, as well as having an element of fantasy involved.
Interest: 10/10. Hiromu Arakawa, for heaven’s sake. Another creation from the FMA mangaka, and I believe it’s going to be another awesome one.

Mangaka: Masayuki Ishikawa
Animation Production: Telecom Animation Films
Genre: Comedy, Slice-of-Life

“Moyashimon�? is about a college student who can see bacteria/fungus with his naked eyes. He enters Tokyo Agriculture College and enjoys a campus life with strange professors and friends. Bacterias are very cute and manga is filled with facts/knowledge about bacteria.
Interest: 10/10. It has a really unusual premise, and that’s what makes me want to see it more.

    Colder or hotter interior temps could cause harm to the public who frequent the buildings.
    Next, check out the services hours of operation, availability, and emergency services.
    In most cases, people would simply turn their systems off whenever
    they feel that the temperature is already suitable for what they need.
