There are a lot of interesting animes on its way to be aired this
spring.

Here is my list of the animes, which I shall try for sure:

- Shingeki no Kyojin Season 2
- Clockwork Planet
- Zero kara Hajimeru Mahou no Sho
- Granblue Fantasy (because I like the doujinshis)
- Re:Creators
- Sekai no Yami Zukan


Movies, if available

- Blame!
- Overlord


"Blame!" is really something. I look forward to that, and I shall buy
the blue ray.

The new edition of the manga "Blame!" is available in English as
Kindle edition, too. I also bought the original new Japanese paperback
edition, which is in DIN A4 format. It's really impressive, but it's a
bit too heavy to have it always with you, so you can read it....






Btw, something to live action movies:

The second season of the live action movie of "Guardian of the Spirit"
actually ep 1 - 7 is available in good quality and translation at the
known places for Japanese TV-dramas.

It is a good show, even if they haven't completly avoided the typical
emotional moralisizing. That's the difference to "Dirk Gently's
Holistic Detective Agency". I've heard there is a second season ot it
in progress. I am looking forward to it.

I am also interested to see, what they have done with "Ghost in the
Shell".

The Japanese version is dubbed with the original voice actors from the
anime.

The Japanese blue ray should be available this month in Japan, I read.

Thanks for the reminder Arne. I've now gone over the upcoming shows and picked those that I will try. There are a couple of sequels that I will try for certain, and a number of "maybes" that I'll try with the hope of finding something unexpected. But for the most part the season looks fairly uninspiring again to me.
