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.

This show did exactly, what has been expected. The most interesting
part is actually the ending theme. If it is an indication what to
expect, then it looks like as the producers have learnt their lesson
of the Claymore-Anime-Ending-Disaster.

Similar to "Gate - Thus the .....", they go with the anime ahead of
the ongoing manga. That may be bad for the mangaka but good for the
anime.



That there should be a second season was easy to detect, as I wrote
three and a half years ago:

It is just as Yoda said, "Patience you must have my young padawan."
:-)

I don't understand exactly what is going on with this anime, because I
have seen this episode a few weeks ago. Besides that the doujinshis
are probably far better than the anime, but I shall watch it a few eps
more.


> - Sekai no Yami Zukan

I haven't seen the first ep yet. But that shall change soon.

This show fulfilled the promise. The show follows the manga, and I
suspect, that there will be a third season.

The method, they use, is different from others. They only go with the
show to what is already known from the manga. They don't try to jump
to conclusions ahead in the anime.

I appreciate that.

I like these two, because they are easy and calming.


> - Re:Creators

This show needs an article of its own. I shall do that later.


I am watching Clockwork Planet, Shingeki no Bahamut, Sin Nanatsu no
Taiza (Uncensored), and Quan Zhi Gao Shou (The King's Avatar), too.
That is very much this season compared with those of former years. So
I am not always at the actual episode.
