This year’s 15th issue of Shueisha’s Young Jump magazine is announcing on Tuesday that a television anime adaptation of Yuusuke Murata’s One-Punch Man manga has been green-lit. The cast and staff will be announced within a promotional video at Bandai Visual’s booth at the Anime Japan 2015 event on March 21 and 22. Murata wrote that when he learned about the anime being green-lit, he was so happy that he wanted to immediately post on Twitter, but unfortunately had to hold back and be patient. ONE wrote that he is participating in production meetings for the anime. The series revolves around the titular super hero who has trained so hard that his hair has fallen out, and who can overcome any enemy with one punch. However, because he is so strong, he has become bored and frustrated with winning all his battles so easily. Murata’s manga series adapts ONE’s original web manga of the same name. Murata’s manga is currently running on Shueisha’s free Tonari no Young Jump spinoff website. The series passed the 2.2-million mark in November 2013, the 3.4-million mark last May, and the 4.5-million mark in...

The wraparound jacket band on Kei Toru’s third Rokka no Yūsha manga volume is announcing on Friday that a television anime adaptation of Ishio Yamagata’s original Rokka no Yūsha fantasy light novel series has been green-lit. The story centers around six heroes — except seven appear instead. One must be a fake and the heroes’ enemy. When the Majin awoke from the depths of darkness, the deity of fate chose six heroes and bequeathed them with the power to save the world. Adoretto, a boy who proclaims himself the strongest on Earth, was selected among the Rokka no Yūsha (Heroes of the Six Flowers), and he goes to the rendezvous point — but seven have gathered there. The heroes suspect that someone among the seven is the enemy, and the initial suspicion falls on Adoretto. Yamagata launched the novel series with illustrations by Miyagi in 2011, and Shueisha’s Dash X Bunko imprint is publishing the fifth volume on Friday. Yamagata wrote the orignal Tatakau Shisho light novel series that inspired The Book of Bantorra anime, and Toru has also drawn the Akame ga KILL! Zero...

A lot of people have been making a fuss about Young Black Jack. Black Jack was a manga from somewhere in the seventies and it was very popular back in the day. There are a lot of parodies, movies and series about that character so it’s no wonder that many decades later they’re still pushing out Black Jack content.
The artwork is more than acceptable from what I’ve seen. I’m not sure which studio is working on this since I didn’t do my homework, but it looks rather nice. I mean, the protagonist alone could be picked out of a thousand character line-up. I like that.
This story, unlike the main one, is about Black Jack’s journey as a student if I understood correctly. We will see how this young prodigy will earn his medical degree.
I think it’s safe to recommend this. It’s definitely an amusing watch. A lot of Black Jack fans are going nuts over it so there’s really no point in what I say now. They will be watching this either way.
Plot Summary: Kuroo Hazama, an aspiring young medical student, studies diligently from Dr. Jōtarō Honma, a top surgeon who had saved Hazama’s life when boy Hazama was badly injured by an unexploded bomb. Someday in the future, Hazama will be known as “Black Jack,” a surgeon with unsurpassed skills but without a license.Read More
Yeah, this is ridiculous. Ridiculous, but very watchable. It’s not amazing and I certainly wouldn’t go around telling people to watch this, but the first episode managed to squeeze out a few laughs. That’s enough for me for now.
The story is practically nonexistent. It’s about a somewhat funny dog and his/her owner’s lives.
I suppose it is fun to watch if you have nothing else going on. The first episode managed to make me laugh so I will be giving the second episode a try.
Plot Summary: The manga depicts the life of the pet dog Muco and his owner Komatsu, who lives in his glass-making workshop in the mountains.Read More
I will never understand these series. I thought the first season was absolutely dreadful, I thought the second season was just as dreadful as the first and now I think that the third season will be just as dreadful as the first two seasons. No idea why this because so successful.
I personally just don’t like music anime. It would have to be pretty darn good for me to become a fan.
I simply cannot recommend any of these series. I hate it. I think it’s an absolute waste of time to watch it.
Plot Summary: In order to be more in the eyes of the public, Miss Monochrome begins working to become a top-selling idol. Spacey Miss Monochrome once again runs around the idol show biz world, being tossed around by others.Read More
Is it just me or are there a lot more anime shorts out this season? I don’t like the look of it. Mind you, I suppose this one could be called one of those “watchable” anime shorts that might not completely end up wasting your time.
I honestly don’t know what it’s about. Just a group of girls that mess around, I guess… Nothing really impressive.
I rarely recommend anime shorts to people. That’s why I won’t recommend this as I think it contributes very little. It’s definitely not a good way to spend your time.
Plot Summary: Hacka Doll app delivers a customized feed of news for each user. The user answers some simple questions when launching the app for the first time, and then the app will filter the news that caters to the user’s personal interests. With daily use, the app automatically analyzes and learns which news articles the user reads and recommends to further personalize the feed. The anime personifies the app’s customization engine as three “Hacka Dolls” — the personal entertainment AI and main navigator Hacka Doll #1, the anime expert Hacka Doll #2, and the knowledgeable otaku Hacka Doll #3.Read More
A lot of anime fanatics are nuts about this show. I honestly don’t see it. It’s amusing to watch alright, but it’s by no means one of the best shows out there. I pretty much prefer any of the Gundam series over this one any day of the week.
My problem with the series is the story. You get lost quite easily. A lot of scenes are vague and the outcome tends to be clear before it even happened.
I personally cannot recommend this. Only to mecha fans. I myself like to watch it only when there’s nothing else left to watch or do.
Plot Summary: 2150 A.D. The battle with the Festum, the silicon life-forms from distant outer space, had reached a new dimension. The North Polar Meir that was crushed during the First Azure Operation had dispersed its fragments all over the world. They all started activity on their own as independent Meirs. Most of the Meirs harbored hatred towards humanity and challenged a fight, however, a portion of the Festum chose coexistence with mankind. Amongst the crossfire, the Ryugujima island alone disappeared from the forefront of battle and continued its silence. The island had gained a means to converse with the Meir since their encounter with Misao Kurusu two years ago. The children of ALVISS had been searching for a way to understand the enemy as they prepared for battle. And now, once again, further evolution was about to befall the island. A girl that understands the language of the Festum, and a girl protected by a Festum. When the two meet, the doors to a new universe opens.Read More
Yattaaaaaaaaaa~! Oh joy! Noragami has finally returned once again and not a moment too soon. I loved the first season a lot and knew immediately that it wouldn’t be the last we’d seen of Noragami. Thank god I was right!
The artwork is still as sublime as ever. They’ve really outdone themselves. One could say a lot of things about Noragami, some of it bad, but you could hardly attack the artwork, especially not if you compare it to other anime.
I loved the first season because of its interesting story. There was rarely a dull moment. They seem to pick up right where we left off and we already have a general idea of what we can expect to see this season. I have high hopes.
I absolutely recommend Noragami. Watch the first season if you haven’t already before you start watching this one. I will undoubtedly be writing about this season.
Plot Summary: In the second season of Noragami the main focus is on Bishamon, god of combat. She has many shinki due to her being unable to abandon spirits attacked by Ayakashi. She has a large group of shinki with her as leader, causing her trouble as she sometimes cannot tend to all of them properly, especially when one of them gets sick or is in pain. She has a strong hate for Yato, as a dark past binds the two of them. How will the horrifying events dated hundreds of years ago in combination with current evil happenings affect Yato and Yukine?Read More
They explained a lot about this show at the very beginning. They told us a whole story about what happened and what’s going on, so how can it still be so damn vague? I have no idea what to expect from Heavy Object at all.
I honestly don’t think it’s the artwork here. The mechs, from what I’ve seen thus far, look fairly interesting (not very innovative) and the characters have caught my attention. I also like the setting so far.
I simply have no idea what to expect from this story. It seems like nothing special right now. There are a lot of these mech stories. I wonder how this one will differ from the others.
The problem is that I have no idea to whom I could possibly recommend this as I still have no idea how I feel about it. I will be giving the second episode a chance because it looks alright, but I have no idea if it’s any good yet. You’ll have to give it a chance, I guess…
Plot Summary: “Objects” are powerful, massive weapons that change the course of warfare and are manned by Elite Object pilots. An odd Elite girl named Milinda meets Quenser, a student who aims to become a Object mechanic, with the soldier-in-training Heivia on a snowy battlefield.Read More
This is absolutely not what I expected. I thought this was going to be an action-filled show with a lot of fighting, but after watching the first episode I instantly realized that this is by no means a must-write show.
The artwork is okay. I say okay because it just looks too damn childish. The characters look pretty nice and their outfits, perhaps a little bit boring, look nice as well. But the action, their expressions and those “evil characters” all look way too damn childish. It ruins whatever action there is in my opinion.
The story sounds interesting, but the artwork just kind of ruins it. It’s hard to take this seriously when the characters look and sound that annoyingly childish. Nevertheless, I might be worth watching.
Will I write about this? Definitely not. Will I continue watching this for the time being? Yes. I’ll definitely be giving this a fair try. I suggest you give it a shot as well.
Plot Summary: Yōtarō Hanafusa is a young man who is part of the last remaining order of knights in the 21st century, “Knights of the World.” As he fights as the mysterious Knight Lancer, he must hide his identity behind a mask. One day he meets a girl named Makio Kidōin, and when finding that she lives alone, decides to watch over her.Read More
