Summer Anime 2015


Akagami no Shirayuki-hime

 

In the kingdom of Tanbarun lives Shirayuki, an independent and strong-willed young woman. Her resourceful intelligence has led her become a skilled pharmacist, but her most defining trait is her shock of beautiful apple-red hair. Her dazzling mane gets her noticed by the prince of the kingdom, but instead of romancing her, he demands she be his concubine. Shirayuki refuses, chops off her lovely locks, and runs away to the neighboring kingdom of Clarines. There, she befriends a young man named Zen, who, SURPRISE, is also a prince, although with a much better temperament than the previous one. Watch as Shirayuki finds her place in the new kingdom, and in Zen’s heart.

Chaos Dragon: Sekiryuu Sen'eki

Charlotte

The story centers around the special abilities that occur among a small percentage of boys and girls in puberty. Yuu Otosaka uses his power without others knowing, and lives a fairly normal, average school life. Before him suddenly appears a girl, Nao Tomori.

However, through mysterious circumstances, the girls find themselves the final survivors in a zombie attack, and continue to live at the school.

Gangsta

In the city of Ergastulum, a shady ville filled with made men and petty thieves, whores on the make and cops on the take, there are some deeds too dirty for even its jaded inhabitants to touch. Enter the "Handymen," Nic and Worick, who take care of the jobs no one else will handle. Until the day when a cop they know on the force requests their help in taking down a new gang muscling in on the territory of a top Mafia family. It seems like business (and mayhem) as usual, but the Handymen are about to find that this job is a lot more than they bargained for.

Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri

The military fantasy series begins when a gate appears in Tokyo's Ginza district sometime in the 21st century. From the gate pours out monsters, knights from middle-age Europe, and other fantasy-like beings, and they kill many of the citizens of Tokyo. This event is known as the Ginza Incident.

God Eater

In the early 2050s, unknown life forms called “Oracle cells” begin their uncontrolled consumption of all life on Earth.

Their ravenous appetite and remarkable adaptability earn them first dread, then awe, and finally the name “aragami”.

In the face of an enemy completely immune to conventional weapons, urban civilization collapses, and each day humanity is driven further and further toward extinction.

One single ray of hope remains for humanity.

Following the development of “God Arcs”—living weapons which incorporate Oracle cells—their wielders are organized into an elite force.

In a world ravaged by mad gods, these “God Eaters” fight a desperate war...

Himouto! Umaru-chan

But with the new school year comes a revision to school policy: Boys are to be admitted into the student body for the first time ever. But on his first day at Hachimitsu, Kiyoshi Fujino discovers that he's one of only five boys enrolled at the school. Their numbers overwhelmed by the thousand girls in the student body, is it heaven or hell that awaits these five (un)fortunates?

Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou

Monsters: they're real, and they want to date us!

Three years ago, the world learned that harpies, centaurs, catgirls, and all manners of fabulous creatures are not merely fiction; they are flesh and blood - not to mention scale, feather, horn, and fang. Thanks to the "Cultural Exchange Between Species Act," these once-mythical creatures have assimilated into society, or at least, they're trying.

Non Non Biyori Repeat

Second season of Non Non Biyori.

Overlord

The story takes place in the year 2138 when virtual reality gaming is booming. Yggdrasil, a popular online game is quietly shut down one day. However, the protagonist Momonga decides to not log out. Momonga is then transformed into the image of a skeleton as "the most powerful wizard." The world continues to change, with non-player characters (NPCs) beginning to feel emotion. Having no parents, friends, or place in society, this ordinary young man Momonga then strives to take over the new world the game has become.

Rokka no Yuusha

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 Yuusha (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.

Shimoneta to Iu Gainen ga Sonzai Shinai Taikutsu na Sekai


The novel's story is set 16 years after the "Law for Public Order and Morals in Healthy Child-Raising" banned coarse language in the country. Tanukichi Okuma enrolls in the country's leading elite public morals school and is soon invited into the Anti-Societal Organization (SOX) by its founder, Ayame Kajou. As a member blackmailed into joining by Ayame, Tanukichi ends up taking part in obscene acts of terrorism against the talented student council president Anna (for whom Tanukichi has a crush).

Character of the month!

Petit Charat "Puchiko"


Anime: Di Gi Charat

Bio:  Puchiko, also known as Capuccino, is Dejiko's five year old sidekick and is a catgirl. Puchiko is quiet (but when she does speak she has unexpected sharp tongue) and has a Type B personality. She has the ability to use an eye-beam similar to Dejiko's but is often too docile to conjure the aggression required to perform such a feat.

Fun Facts: 

Her eye beam results in many things to come out of her eyes, including sludge, when she attempts to use it. 

Puchiko has brown hair and dark brown eyes. She wears a schoolgirl-type uniform plus cat bells in her hair, though they are much smaller than Dejiko's. She wears orange boots, cat ears and tail.

She ends each sentence with nyu.

Anime Recommendations!

In this section users can give their recommendations and ratings for their favorite anime. You can update your favorites every season if you so wish. If you have a recommendation, shoot me a PM with the anime and why you recommend it. 

Whether you are new to anime and want to watch some of the best available, or are a veteran who's looking for some new content, this is the place to keep an eye on.

Ka-pi96: Sword Art Online. Plenty of great action scenes with some very good characters and a nice dose of romance between some of them. The animation quality is very high and the setting is a virtual reality MMO so something familiar for gamers. 9/10 for me.

(Genre: Fantasy, Action, Adventure)

NobleTeam360: Angel Beats. Great anime that has a lot of emotions in it, it's on the short side of 13 episodes, but it does so much in those 13 episodes and I truly felt attached to the characters. Also I find the humor to be quite good, I can say I laughed at least a few times each episode. 9/10 for me!

(Genre: Tragedy,  Action, Fantasy)

Jizz_Beard_thePirate: I say K-on and the reason is that the anime blends Slice of Life, Comedy and Music really well! Both the singing and even the background music during some moments really show an emphasis on music that I havnt seen in any other anime before! Top that with some really funny comedy moments and quite rememberable characterization, you have yourself a truely great anime! I specially love Mio's songs and she is certainly my favorite anime singer without a doubt! 8.5/10.

(Genre: Comedy, Music, Slice of Life)

VanceIX: Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Still the best anime of all time for me. A masterpiece in all aspects. The characters, the story, the animation, all of it was perfect. It was the kind of anime that could send shivers down your back because it was just that good. A tale both tragic yet heart-warming at the same time. Every anime fan should give it a try. 10/10.

(Genre: Science Fantasy, Action, Adventure)

estebxx: Elfen Lied is the reason why I started watching anime, it was so good that I wanted to see if I could find an anime that was better than it, and even though with time I did found some other incredible anime masterpieces, Elfen Lied is still a great classic that everyone should watch.

It centers on Lucy a Diclonii (a mutant) human being with two horns on her head and the ability to control "vectors", transparent telekinetically controlled arms that have the power to manipulate and cut objects within their reach, bullied and rejected since childhood Lucy starts to build up a hatred against society and human beings in general.

The show features themes of social alienation, prejudice, identity, revenge, abuse, jealousy, regret and the value of humanity. It also contains graphic violence and emotional themes that feature characters development through the whole story. There is one word that I would use to describe this anime and that’s UNIQUE. 10/10

(Genre: Romance, Tragedy, Action)

Squeezol: My first recommendation in this thread is "Is The Order A Rabbit?" which is your typical cute girls doing cute things aka moe anime. It's simple yet relaxing, and even feels refreshing because of its theme. The anime revolves around Cocoa and her friends living their lives in and around the Rabbit House, a cafe where all kinds of coffee are served. The animation is super cute, just like the characters, and the music fits the overall European scenery very well. I give this anime a moe out of 10.

(Genre: Slice of Life, Comedy)

Zisbest: An Anime recommendation you ask for? The first thing that came to my mind 'Recommend ToraDora... just do it, darn it' So now I'm here doing exactly so. ToraDora is basically your standard Slice of Life Anime, mixed together with a lot of Humor and Romance.

The plot evolves around the two students Ryuuji and Taiga who essentially want to help each other out to hit on their individual crush. None of their plans work out the way they intended though, so they stumble from one funny moment to the next. Living pretty isolated in the beginning, Taiga continues to form a pretty strong bond to Ryuuji over the course of the 25 episode long Anime. The plot certainly won't get boring.

Now who should watch this Anime? You're into Slice of Life? Certainly. You want humorous situations? Check it out. You can't resist Romance with a Tsundere couple? Why are you still reading this? Personally I'd rate this Anime a solid 9/10 any day.
