Please, I’d like to hear it,” said Horikita. “If there is some kind of partner selection method, then I think we should confirm it with an upperclassman,” Hirata said. “If it’s the same test from previous years, then the rules probably haven’t changed.

WR ENFORCER THEORY 2YV2 (I put in details so don’t read if you’ve not yet caught up)

2020.09.06 08:47 hmyron11 WR ENFORCER THEORY 2YV2 (I put in details so don’t read if you’ve not yet caught up)

I commented this on one of the threads here but I want to discuss it further with others. I think that it may be interpreted that Nanase is the WR enforcer because of the 2YV2 epilogue but I can’t seem to accept it. She indeed seems to show good abilities and potential. But I really wish it’s just a bait.
This is my own theory: I still think Yagami is the WR enforcer. I want to hold on this theory and gut feel until it is properly stated that Nanase is the WR enforcer. Please correct the details if I was wrong.
  1. I think Nanase is Tsukishiro’s personal soldier. The plan was to expel Kiyotaka in April. (2YV1 prologue). In 2YV1 epilogue, Tsukishiro said that the WR enforcer rebelled/didn’t go according to plan postponing it to Summer. Contrary to that, Nanase clearly already acted. Yagami didn’t act directly but managed to introduce himself to Ayanokouji and go on to partner up with Kushida. I personally think that it was the best move for the WR enforcer.
a. Kushida has an amazingly scary amount of information about the 2Ys.
b. He got info about Kushida’s past so he can exploit her. It is her weakness
c. He might know that Kushida has suspicious connection with Kiyotaka and he can use it against her (their contract)
Regarding him being a schoolmate, I think it’s just an alibi. Don’t you think it suspicious that anyone from her middle school would like to team up with her? She’s a psycho bitch. I’d hide from her if possible. Kushida seemed to fake remembering him. (Kushida knows EVERYONE). Horikita when asked if he knows him said that she didn’t. Horikita has a great memory and intellect. I don’t think she’ll forget someone who has outstanding academic ability (93). That guy would definitely top place in exams. They are just one year apart meaning they spent at least 2 years in the same school.
  1. To support this, Tsukishiro needed to gather a group of first year into a special exam. If Nanase is a white room student, who seems to have a sort of a pride issue against being beneath Ayanokouji. I think he/she would have felt slighted by this. On the contrary, she has been cooperating with Amasawa and Housen. Yagami, on the other hand, went to Kiyotaka and told him about the special exam. Clearly showing signs of being not in favor of it.
  2. Modus operandi. I think Nanase is sloppy. She is way too exposed. She lets her emotions off too much. (There must be a background why she hates him too much tho) Also, I think it is disappointing to fail more than once in your attempt. (No way, they are expelling Kiyo this time) Nanase group failed in the 1st special exam so I think if she is the WR student, it’s already disgraceful. There’s no info on Yagami yet but I think he has hidden himself well if he is the WR student.
  3. Maybe I’m comparing her too much to Kiyotaka but I’d like the WR to be more cunning and superior than what Nanase’s front (if it is) right now. If she’s doing things in the shadows she should do a better job at hiding it like Kiyotaka. (Hiding in plain sight) If she’s going at it directly, she should be more like Nagumo with the arrogance of a superior. I hope you get my meaning. (No holds barred)
  4. I personally think she is a bad WR enforcer. I find her cringey. Her dialogues. Her actions. I find them unfit for a WR student.
EDIT: If anyone believes that Nanase is the WR Enforcer. Please enlighten me. Thanks in advance.

2020.07.11 15:49 fuzzau36 Spoiler: relationship volume 11+

I just want to point out that I love slice of life stuff and cute fun romantic couples. So I could not help grinning and chuckling with how Kiyotaka asked Kei out. Then their entire phone conversation was funny and adorable.
In terms of romantic partners I like Kei the most. Not my favorite character but for Kiyotaka, I think she is the best. However this situation, as fun as it is to read for my slice of life romcom loving self. It also is showing massive and I mean massive character growth for Kiyotaka. The at first emotionless kid who only saw others as tools. Now has a heart of emotion and care. He evens mentions how its new and refreshing to himself. I was a bit shocked at his reactions and responses to Kei who plays the typical girl in love but at the same time calls him out and his lack of experience. Like don't google it, I am listening.
Not only am I excited to see how their relationship will go. And I really hope she stays his girlfriend throughout the story and he doesn't switch. But how he will grow with others now that he has opened himself to feeling more normal emotions since interacting with Sakayanagi, and Manabu Horikita.
Its a long ways away but I hope he graduates dating Kei and if he ever tells her about his past, I bet she would accept it.

Im in year 2 vol 1, i dont like how anayakoji seems to be losing his alpha-ness, he lets people boss him around more and he gets into situations that has no benefits for him at all, like when he agreed to cook for that first year for the sake of her partnering with sudo, because hirokata asked him too, and i feel like horikita is looking down on him, but he treats her more like an equal than a tool now, and i dont like that since horikita is probably my least favorite character, please tell me things will change

2020.05.21 10:18 Eureka1513 What if Ayanokoji and that "best girl" will not end up together, will it rage the base fans the same as the anime?

First of all, I know that many will get angry because of this. I want you to know that I wholeheartedly respect the fact that you love Kei and I don't really want to argue with that fact. This post is long because I know people will swarm so I want to establish why I think there is a possibility of them not being together.
I refer her as the "best girl" because a lot of people love her and to avoid spoilers but I refuse to mention her as the female heroine ( I might get flamed because of this but I explain this why). Now allow me to explain why I think that there is a possibility of Kei and Kiyo might not end up together. If you are 99% certain that Kei and Kiyo will end-up together then please just discard all of what I'm about to say since there is no point in arguing with me. I respect those people who believe it and I won't change my stance that there is a possibility.
First, Not the main heroine. there is no denying the fact that Kei is the male lead's 'romantic partner' whether affixed or not, but that does not necessarily mean she is the main female heroine. The author's writing style in every volume is that the female lead varies and not constant. If you read volumes 1 and 3, anyone can assume that Horikita is the main f lead and volume 2 is Airi whereas other volumes it could be Kei, Kushida, Ichinose, or Sakayanagi. Kei also did only get relevant until volume 4. To say, COTE is not really about Kei and Ayano. The story does not really revolve in them and their 'romantic' relationship is just some part of the story. Her being, not the main heroine is just based on the current volumes and things can change where Kei will become one, and their story becoming the main story.
2nd. To overcome her past. We all know that the first reason why Kei clung to Ayano is the fact that he is strong. Her defect is that he depends on someone to be able to overcome her past. Now, we have seen Horikita overcome her defect, as well as Ichinose and other characters. For Kei to overcome it is to be able to stand on her own and not cling to someone like Ayanokoji. Thou Ayano and Kei being together can still be achieved while Kei overcoming it.
3rd. It is too early. Kei and Ayano being together are just too early. In early novels, Ayano is portrayed to be incapable of various emotions. I think that their love story should be after Ayano has been given a situation or a story in which he is forced to show the capability of such emotion such as love. For this, Kei being a partner of Ayano can still be questioned. And his past is still unknown to Kei.
So my question is if Kei and Ayano will not be together, will that angry the fans to the point of boycotting the LN?
As I have said if you are absolutely certain that Ayano and Kei will end up together then just discard the question since it will not happen.

2019.11.05 17:00 FDB96 Speculation about the future of Class C

In volume 4, the teachers talk about the Dragon group (the class leaders: Katsuragi, Kanzaki, Ryūen, Hirata, Kushida, Horikita) and how Ichinose should be there.
But they also mention that Ryūen should not be considered a leader, but someone specific with a better reputation.
At that time the easiest (and only) option to consider would be Ibuki who "opposed" him.
In addition to being in the same group as Ichinose and Kiyotaka (who controls his classmates) added to Sakayanagi's absence, it makes the Dragon group one of "false rulers".
This also opens the door to other characters such as Manabe (highly doubtful) or Sotomura as the mastermind behind everything.

But a few volumes later a new heroine is introduced ̶A̶l̶b̶e̶r̶t̶ ̶Y̶a̶m̶a̶d̶a̶ Hiyori Shiina that even without having been really relevant in her appearances we are presented characteristics that coincide more with the ideals of the teachers:
-Be an observer of her surroundings: Ibuki's taste for hot drinks and going to the movies, and the amount of sugar ingested by Hasebe.
-Also worried about others like Ishizaki's wounds, or Ichinose post-rumor, besides the fight of the different classes.
-And take initiative: appoint a leader of the women's group, approach and befriend Mii-chan, or confront Hashimoto.
That said, by personality (after all it is socially awkward) and ideology it is unlikely that she will actively participate in the class struggle unless the situation requires it.
But the fact of its constant reappearances is reason enough to say that she will be important in the history. So she can play a role similar to 50% removing the part of the machinations.

But what about the other class members?
Kaneda took the rank of provisional leader mainly due to the status quo. He also takes part in the intelligence challenges as demonstrated in the Island test.
Ishizaki is the only extrovert as far as we know. Albert is just calm.
Ibuki is practically Horikita (has character, personality, presence) without Kiyotaka around or with the Onii-chan complex.
None of them meet the necessary conditions to be called a leader (neither Hiyori) but they all fulfill a specific role, share a common goal and probably none would relate to the other if they were not recognized as "commanders" by Ryūen.
Because of this, in addition to the fact that they have already experienced a crisis, I personally consider it the most solid group (and perhaps closer to the concept of equality that Ayanokouji seeks) since they only need to conform as such and increase their reach in their classmates with the influence of Ryūen.
If they can achieve this, they would no longer depend on a leader and the fragility that it entails as happens in the other classes:
-Class D has many of its members acting on their own only connected by Hirata and Kushida (who at any time will explode). We must also be worried of the changes produced by the new haircut of Horikita.
-Class B has to face the consequences of communism. Apart from Ichinose we practically do not know anyone else, Comrade Kanzaki we do not even know the size of his member, and others like Shibata or Chihiro only appeared two or three times.
-Unlike Ryūen, who controls his classmates through fear, he cuts off the initiative of a potential leader; Sakayanagi let there be an opposition and then sabotage them and dominate through overwhelming.
Even when they are in a safe situation because their points double to the other classes, there is a potential threat due to the personality and goals of Hashimoto and Sakayanagi who at any time leave them aside for higher priorities. Meanwhile, the only one who slightly opposes the slavery system is Katsuragi whose position is weaker than ever since the death of his partner.

Finally it only remains to talk about Ryūen's future.
With the second year starting the policies of Nagumo will make the class fight focus more on individuals involving greater chances of expulsions. Meanwhile Tsukishiro's objectives will involve greater interaction between the different Years.
All this added to the growing prominence of his teammates, and the recent conversation with Kiyotaka about the methods used, leads me to the conclusion that the end of Dragon Boy is approaching.
But first he has to complete the function of being the nexus within your class, then a probable direct confrontation against class A (as well as class B vs class D), to end up being defeated by a Kohai or Kanzaki (it can also be Kiyopon or Horikita) as in Shounen to anticipate stronger enemies. This could happen in the second or third trimester.
In this way, class C would go through a second crisis, which also means new opportunities because its "commanders" would take his role in reaching class A fulfilling his legacy.

PD: My apologies if there are badly written parts.

2018.10.21 08:08 xlilredridinghoodx [Chinese > English] Some words on a character relationship map

I was wondering what the text on the black lines that go to and from the 4 characters in the middle (Ayanokouji Kiyotaka, Horikita Suzune, Hirata Yousuke & Karuizawa Kei) say. (I do know the black lines indicate a kind of friend/partnecolleague relationship but wanted to know the exact details between these 4 characters) Anyway, I hope you can read the text since it is pretty tiny.

2018.10.01 03:55 Hellimi Which girl should be Kiyopon girlfriend?

Greetings internet beings! If you didn't read volume 9 of the light novel, I recommend that you don't read more. I'll write some spoilers.
Youzitsu has beautiful and charismatic girls: Ichinose Honami, Sakura Airi (ok, she isn't charismatic, but is pretty), Karuizawa Kei, Sakayanagi Arisu, Ibuki Mio and Horikita Suzune.
My favorite is Kei. I think she has more chances than other girls because she knows Kiyopon's true personality and accepts him as a whole.
Ayanakoji in the final chapter of Volume 7-5 thought that their relationship could be more than friends if he resolves his problems with the student council, his father and if his class becomes A.
About Ichinose Honami if you read her extra in Volume 9 it appears that something has developed in her heart. But it's just my speculation, because we still don't know who saved her from Sakayanagi's attack. We will need to wait for more translated chapters.
About Sakanagi if you read her SS chapter "That Summer Day" in Volume 8, you'll see how she became interested in Ayanakoji. I think it's more than a desire to defeat Ayanakoji. She thought that she wanted to touch him, hear his voice and break him. She's twisted but I think she will only accept Ayanakoji as her boyfriend and no other man. She's too conceited and will only accepts a genius as her partner for life.
About Ibuki I think something could be developed with her and Kiyopon in the future. I think something could be developed with Shiina Hiyori too.
About Suzune I don't think the author will get Suzune to fall in love with Kiyopon. I hope Suzune and Sudou become a couple.
Maybe Kamuro Masumi too will become interested in our protagonist. She's really pretty! Did you see her ilustration in Youzitsu Wiki? If you didn't you should.
So... Who you will cheer?

2017.06.29 21:01 Nickknight8 The Unofficial /r/anime In Depth Summer Preview Part 3 (N - Z)

Welcome back to the final part of my unoffical summer preview
<-------- Part 2
Nora to Oujo to Noraneko Heart (Nora, Princess, and Stray Cat)
Information: MALANNKey Visual
Studio: ?
Start Date: ?
Episodes: ? (Short)
Genre: Comedy, Ecchi
Nora Handa is a boy who lives with Shachi Yuuri, who was adopted by his mother. With everyone supporting, the two of them grew up healthily even after their parents passed away. Shachi, who likes Nora the most, wakes him up every morning.
Nora spends his happy student life with Michi Kuroki, who is a disciplinary committee, honor student at school and childhood friend of the main character, Yuuki Asuhara, who is a gal but is very bright and can talk his worries to, and more friends at school.
One day, Nora meets a girl who calls herself Patricia at the park on the way to the school. Patricia is a queen at hell, and claims to come here to destroy the life on land. However, she is damaged heavily because she touched the life for the first time. The energy was stronger than her, so Nora needed to tend her. Patricia asked him to tell her about the mysteries of life, and he had to even explain the ero book that he found at the park...?!
Okay so as you can see, very little is known about this show. Hell maybe it shouldn’t even be on here. It’s an adaptation of an adult visual novel. So while this could just be hentai, they claim it’s going to a summer anime airing shorts throughout the season.
The strange this is that we know the director, but not the studio. I imagine we might find out soon, but still I find that really weird. The director is Kenshirou Morii, who seems to be an expert in making shorts, with all of his work being short chibi like shows. However, there is one major exception, as he directed an animated the entire first ED for Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. But I expect just another chibi comedy show with some ecchi elements.

Princess Principal

Studio: Actas, Studio 3Hz
Start Date: July 9th
Episodes: ?
Genre: Action, Adventure
The stage is set during the 19th century London, in its capital where a wall divides the east and west of the Kingdom of Albion. Five high school girls, who enrolled in the prestigious Queens May Fair School, are involved in spy activities that involve disguise, infiltration, car chase, and more. These girls take advantage of their special abilities and fly around the shadow world.
Welcome to show 2 of 2 that I am insanely hyped about.

And while there is less reason for me to do so, since there are some red flags, I can’t help myself. A jazzy, early 1900’s gang warfare with girls who are spys and have powers. Sold! I mean it could’ve been without the powers but still I’m sold! The Pv’s alone have me hooked with the show oozing style. With it being an original, it has more of a chance to fall on its face, but man I’m just incredibly optimistic with this one.
Part of my optimism comes from Studio 3Hz and their last work Flip Flappers. But in their quest to create original works, none of their shows seem to do well financially. So why not make a show involving cute girls and team up with a studio who has had extreme success with that, Studio Actas, aka the ones behind Girls und Panzer. So they’ve got someone with experience in the formula helping them out.
The staff behind the show makes me really excited but also a tad worried. What’s not worrying is the director, Masaki Tachibana. He has worked on a ton of good stuff as a story boarder and episode director, but he really shines as a director, with his 3 previous works being .hack//Quantum, Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, and Barakamon. So he hasn’t had a true dud in my opinion, so I doubt this one will be either.
However, since this is an original, we got to look at script/series composer. Both of those roles are filled by Ichiro Okouchi and boy does his work vary. He’s written for such shows as Planetes, but he was also the script writeseries composer for Kabeneri of the Iron Fortress, which I know will turn a lot of people off of this show. But what he is most known for is being one of the founding creators of Code Geass. So take all of that information for what you will. It makes me approach the show with caution, but it can’t hamper my hype.
Last thing to mention is the music for the show is going to be done by the legendary Yuki Kajiura, who for the uninitiated, has done basically most of your favorite shows. Okay maybe not, but with shows like Sword Art, Madoka, and Fate/Zero under her catalog, she definitely has got around.
So while this show has a very real chance to go off the deep end, I’m still super excited. Its 1900’s spies, how can I not be excited. Well there was Joker game…
Saiyuuki Reload Blast
Information: MALANNKey VisualPV 1PV 2
Studio: Platinum Vision
Start Date: July 5th
Episodes: 12
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Supernatural, Drama, Josei
At last, the Sanzou Party has arrived in India. In this foreign land, where the anomaly's influence runs rampant, their battles only heighten in their violence.
And also awaiting them is their tragic fate from 500 years ago—
What will they find at the end of their long and treacherous journey?
So this is apparently a sequel to a show that had an unfinished manga adaptation back in 2004. And this is apparently part of a manga series from 1997, and its still going with the manga on its second sequel. And apparently the show is about cute boys with guns. And they all seem pretty identifiable. I mean just from the PV I can tell there’s the cool leader, a fun loving one, the violent one, and the smart one. Kinda like the ninja turtles now that I think about it. But to do a sequel after all this time is surprising, but at least it still gives hope to all those people waiting for a second season of their favorite show.
Handling production is Platinum Vision, whose only other work is Servamp. They even had Brains Base help them out with that. And besides that, literally nothing else. They’re brand new to the scene and this will be their first standalone work. Shame it’s a sequel so I couldn’t see how they do on their own.
The director is not new however, as Hideaki Nakano has worked on a ton of stuff before. Was any of that stuff notable or good? It varies, but I’d say his work leans mostly towards the forgettable side. Although he did direct Servamp and a couple other shows involving cute boys, so maybe he’s found his niche.
But yeah, as a 13 year old sequel, not much insight from me.

As he finds himself deeper and deeper in the politics of the ancient world, new enemies and allies surface. Who will prevail? What will Mahmut do if war proves to be inevitable?
Looks like we’re getting another anime set in the Arabian nights. And this time it’s all about war and politics following a young ruler trying to save his kingdom. I mean obviously there are Magi vibes here, but I think this is going a completely different direction from that one. More on the strategy of war rather than magic.
This is Studio MAPPA’s other project this season along with Kakegurui. However, promos for this work have been airing since late last year, so I think its safe to say that a team in MAPPA have been spending a lot of time on this project. The first PV came out over 2 seasons ago, and animators work best when given a lot of time to work. Hell, the second season of Hero Academia is a perfect example of this.
So with a lot of time and being MAPPA’s premier project this season, they brought on Kazuhiro Furuhashi, who recently directed the absolutely beautiful Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn. While Unicorn was breathtaking visually, the story wasn’t my cup of tea. But hey, we got a praised manga as a story source this time, so that shouldn’t be an issue. Now he did have 4 years to direct Unicorn, and that’s a lot more time than usually given for a seasonal show. But hey this show has gotten a lot more time to be developed than other shows. It’s almost like there’s a theme in this entry.
But yeah like I said, this manga has been recommended to me and has seen its praise around the internet. Sure it’s not being praised as anything more than solid, but it seems like a solid base for this anime to work on. And while Arabian nights isn’t my personal cup of tea, and the PV’s didn’t light my world on fire or anything, I still think I’ll be checking this one out. Everything just seems to be in line to make this show a successful one.
Skirt no Naka wa Kedamono Deshita.

Studio: Magic Bus
Start Date: July 3rd
Episodes: ? (5 min)
Genre: Drama, Romance, Ecchi
Kominami Shizuka is a mild-mannered college student who is having trouble adjusting to city life. One day, she meets Kirishima Ryou, another student who projects the image of a cool older sister. The two hit it off, but Shizuka is shocked when Ryou attempts to seduce her. Shizuka initially assumes that Ryou is a lesbian, but Ryou is in fact a man who dresses like a lady.
Okay seriously. I know I half-jokingly said earlier that Nora could turn out to be a form of hentai, but come on. There is fingering in the PV.
So I initially played this off as Yuri, but no! IT’S A TRAP! Crossdresser who is actually a guy. No yuri here folks. Regardless, that seems to be the point of the show. People thinking they are a lesbian couple/lesbian flirting when in reality it’s actually a guy. Well at least those 5 minutes look like they’ll be full of kissing and holding hands.
Fun fact about Studio Magic Bus. They helped work on Legend of the Galactic Heroes. No reason I bring this up, just found it amusing. There last work was 4 years ago, and it was a hentai.
The director is Mitsutaka Noshitani, who although isn’t credited with anything on MAL, has quite the few credits as episode director for a ton of stuff on his ANN.
Look, it’s just porn bait. 5 minute porn bait. Just say no kids.
Teekyuu 9
Information: MALANNKey VisualPV
Studio: Millepensee
Start Date: July 12th
Episodes: ? (2 min)
Genre: Comedy, Sports, Shounen
Ninth season of the Teekyuu anime series.
… is what I would say if I had watched the last 8 seasons. But their all shorts so it’s probably really easy to catch up. Regardless, it’s more of the fun loving cute girl sports anime that I’ve heard about.
Studio and director are all returning for this as well. Fun fact this is Shin Itagaki’s pet project as he does like 50% of the total work on it (or at least that’s what the credits would make you believe). He’s also the director of Beserk (2016). Hey don’t shoot the messenger.
Tenshi no 3P! (Here comes Three Angels)

Studio: Project No. 9
Start Date: July 10th
Episodes: ?
Genre: Music, Slice of Life, School
Kyou Nukui is a first year high school student hikikomori. His hobby is making Vocaloid songs and uploading them online. One day, he receives a message from a fan asking if they could meet up with him. At the meeting place, three elementary school girls were waiting for him. The three of them want to form a band and ask for Kyou's help.
We got our cute girls show for the season folks. A man obsessed with vocaloids gets to manage 3 elementary school girls trying to form a band. You know what that means…

I’ll give them that the loli’s seem cute, but there are red flags for me as soon as a high school male is surrounded by 3 children. Now to give them some credit, this creator and studio has worked on a show called Ro-Kyu-Bu, which is the same concept but with basketball. And to my research I don’t think much creepy stuff goes on. I was kinda scared to dig deeper. Still, they seemed to be sexualized in the PV, so I’m still concerned.
So excuse my poor research earlier, but it appears Studio Project No. 9 is doing double duty this season. And for such a young studio, too! But unfortunately, I still have the same opinion that they haven’t made an above decent show yet.
What really matters is the people behind it, and it seems like Project No. 9’s main guy is at the forfront. Shinsuke Yanagi, who incidentally directed Ro-Kyu-Bu that I mentioned earlier, as well there most popular work And you thought there is never a girl online?. Not the best track record for my book.
So incidentally, with basically everyone returning, this seems like a spiritual successor to Ro-Kyu-Bu. So I guess they’re trying to strike loli gold twice. I tried to see the sales number of the last Ro-Kyu-Bu, and seeing as it did pretty well and got a second season, I just there judgement seems correct.

Studio: Studio DEEN
Start Date: July 22nd
Episodes: 12
Genre: Action, Super Power
After THE REFLECTION, some of the people in all parts of the world are discovered with super powers.
Some become heroes, and others villains.
How did the Reflection happen? What was the cause of it?
With many unsolved mysteries, the world is lead into turmoil.
So in case you didn’t hear, this is the project that motherfucking Stan Lee is behind! I mean that’s a good sign, right? Right!? In all honesty, I’m not too caught up on the dealings with Marvel and their comic books. I also don’t know whether Stan is still considered a good comic maker. Or if he’s still as good as he always was. However, while he created the premise, I looks like he will not have a hand in the actual production of the show.
As for the premise he came up with… its strikingly similar to something. I just can’t put my finger on it.
Okay when you look into the details, its not exactly that similar to Hero Academia. Unlike MHA, only a select few get powers, with in MHA almost everyone gets powers. And this show seems to center around why people got powers, where in MHA its more on being a hero. But regardless, with Hero Academia running alongside it, it’ll have to do something different to stand out from not only MHA, but also other superhero shows as well, as even I have to admit we are overloaded on superhero shows.
Since Stan Lee is only co-creator, we need to look at the other half to get the full picture. Fortunately, he’s also the director, Hiroshi Nagahama. And boy did Stan Lee and DEEN pick up a good one here as he directed Detroit Metal City and almost all of Mushishi and its sequels. He’s the only staff listed, but I think as long as he’s behind it, I feel like the show will make an attempt to stand out. After all, he certainly stood out with his attempt to adapt Flowers of Evil.
Studio DEEN needs no introduction, and unfortunately they are also working on Hell Girl season 4 this season. However, they have grown enough that I think they have enough staff to easily pull it off. They did do Rakugo and Konosuba at the same time after all (Hopefully I’m not bringing back the Konosuba animation argument with this. It was fine and intentional (I think)).
Oh and for a fun fact to leave it on, Marvel actually has their own anime being made this season called Marvel Future Avengers, and its being done by Madhouse. But to make it an actual coincidence, they both are starting on the same date, July 22nd. They might have planned it, but if not, I find the coincidence amusing.
Tsurezure Children (Tsuredure Children)
Information: MALANNKey VisualPV
Studio: Studio Gokumi
Start Date: July 4th
Episodes: ? (15 min)
Genre: Comedy, Romance, School, Shounen
A series depicting various scenarios of young love. These stories range from a boy, crippled by his absolute lack of confidence in himself, cannot even accept the fact that the girl of his dreams actually asked him out on a date, to the near-psychotic girl that pours her own blood into her homemade chocolate in order to win his heart.
Oh god its so adorable.

So originally when I saw that this was a 4-koma manga, I got worried because with it being a romance. But fret not, as these are mini stories about multiple people starting relationships. And holy shit does everything about this scream cute. I mean the psychotic girl in the description is worrying, but I just watch the PV’s again and get the warm fuzzles.
Now I’m giving the credit for this cuteness to Studio Gokumi, as their previous work on Kiniro Mosaic and Yuuki Yuuna proves they can do cute things kinda well.
… Okay I’m not stupid. I know the studio has nothing to do with the cuteness that is a part of those shows. Its just I don’t want to give the credit to the director, Hiraku Kaneko. Why? Cause his previous works of hentai and ecchi shows have shown that his work has a particular fondness for the oppai. Or at least that’s what I’ve heard. This is honestly one of the biggest red flags I’ve seen, enough to make this adorable looking show something I’m a little hesitant to pick up.
However, I’m here to just give you the information. So I again emphasize that despite the adorable PV, there is not a good track record behind this director. So just take that into consideration before picking this one up.
Vatican Kiseki Chousakan (Vatican Miracle Examiner)
Information: MALANNKey VisualPV
Studio: J.C. Staff
Start Date: July 7th
Episodes: 12
Genre: Mystery, Supernatural, Drama, Shounen
Vatican City—Holy Land of the Catholics. Amidst the land, there is an organization that conducts rigorous investigations on "claims of miracles" from all over the world to ascertain their credibility. The organization is referred to as "Seito no Za" (Assembly of Saints) and the priests that belong there are called miracle investigators. Robert Nicholas, an ancient archive and cryptanalysis expert is partnered and good friends with Hiraga Josef Kou, a genius scientist. Together, the brilliant duo investigates the "miracles" and uncovers the incidents and conspiracies hidden behind them.
Today on “sure, that’s an anime”, mystery solving priest use the power of Christ to so mysteries. Maybe, that’s just the impression I get from all the information given.
It seems to be a mystery type of show (obviously), but what I’m most interested in is whether or not it will be episodic. The description makes it seem episodic, but with them emphasizing side characters in the PV it could have an overarching story. All I do know however is that they are some very handsome goth looking detectives. Going after that Black Butler market I suppose. (Also side note since I mentioned it earlier, Junichi Suwabe is in this, so more eargasms.)
J.C. Staff is a large enough studio that them alone won’t account for a shows quality, so we got to look at the director, Yoshitomo Yonetani. He’s been around for a while, so much so that I don’t really recognize much of his work. I do know that one of most recent work was the adaptation of Food Wars, so I guess that’s a feather in his cap.
Honestly, speaking from personal opinion, I’m not the biggest fan of the art style here. However, I am probably not the demographic for this, so if you want goth priests who are mystery solvers, then you got your show for the season.
Yami Shibai 5th Season
Information: MALANNKey Visual
Studio: ILCA
Start Date: July 3rd
Episodes: ? (most likely 4 min)
Genre: Dementia, Horror, Supernatural
Fifth season of the Yami Shibai anime series.
So it’s the 5 season of these 4 minute horror shorts. The last season was in winter. You already know if you’re watching this or not.
Youkai Apartment no Yuuga na Nichijou
Information: MALANNKey VisualPV
Studio: Shin-Ei Animation
Start Date: July 3rd
Episodes: ?
Genre: Slice of Life, Mystery, Supernatural
Inaba Yuushi's parents died in his first year of middle school, and he moved in with his relatives. Though they did care for him, he could tell he was a burden. After he graduated, he happily prepared to move to a high school with a dormitory. Unfortunately, the dormitory burned to the ground before he could move in! Yuushi doesn't want to live with his grudging relatives, but it's rough finding lodging as an orphaned student with little money. He finally finds a room in a nice old building which seems too good to be true.
The catch is that it is a Monster House, a place where humans and supernatural creatures—ghosts, mononoke, etc.—live together. Another high schooler lives there, a cute girl named Akine, and she's completely unfazed by the monsters. In fact, she can even exorcise evil spirits! Yuushi's high school life just got much stranger than he ever bargained for!
So Shin-Ei Animation, following there recent “hits” of Warau Salesman and Trickster, look to strike “gold” again with this light novel adaptation.
But from what I see, it seems like a general adventure-comedy ghostbusting affair. Kid moves out into a house that is haunted, must deal with ghosts with the help of a cute sidekick that totally won’t be a love interest. In fact it reminds me of RIN-NE, just with the roles reversed. And these types of shows usually tend to be episodic, but since this is a light novel I just have a gut feeling there will be an overarching plot. Or not.
The director of this ghostly comedy is Mitsuo Hashimoto, who despite working on a few personal projects and kids show recently, really has a pedigree of shows behind him, with him working on all three Dragonball series and directing 3 of the movies. He also directed the later seasons of Initial D. This is his first none kids work in a very long time, so it’ll be interesting to see how this comedy will play out.
So this is the definition of generic, but hey, like I’ve said before, generic isn’t always a bad thing. The animation did look a little sparse in the PV though, so we’ll see if this will be a “quality” show this season.
Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e (Classroom of the Elite) (TV)
Information: MALANNKey VisualPV
Studio: Lerche
Start Date: July 12th
Episodes: ?
Genre: Comedy, Romance, School
Koudo Ikusei Senior High School is a leading prestigious school with state-of-the-art facilities where nearly 100% of students go on to university or find employment. The students there have the freedom to wear any hairstyle and bring any personal effects they desire. Koudo Ikusei is a paradise-like school, but the truth is that only the most superior of students receive favorable treatment.
Ayanokouji Kiyotaka is a student of D-class, which is where the school dumps its "inferior" students in order to ridicule them. For a certain reason, Kiyotaka was careless on his entrance examination, and was put in D-class. After meeting Horikita Suzune and Kushida Kikyou, two other students in his class, Kiyotaka's situation begins to change.
So I can’t really get a feel for this one, since everything about it seems like it should be a high school comedy about just trying to do your best in school, but the PV gives off this almost drama like tone, like something foreboding is about to happen. I guess the main crux will be just how bad the school treats its lower classman and if there is a sort of injustice to fight against. Also, I hope the MC didn’t get to the “inferior students” class because of some stupid reasons. It also seems clear that it’s about a guy who meets two girls who will change his situation, so love triangle here we come. As a trade off at least the manga is somewhat popular, so hopefully that means that it has something to make it stand out. Maybe the school?
Lerche is coming of Scums Wish and 50 episodes of Assassination classroom, with some decent shows in between, so in my opinion they are riding high right now. Let’s hope this manga they choose to adapt will continue theirs ways of success.
We got Co-directors for this one. The first is Seiji Kishi, who has directed a number of quality shows that it would take me too long to list. However, I think most people will recognize him for his recent directorial work on the springs Tsuki ga Kirei. Our next director is Hiroyuki Hashimoto, who has done a ton of storyboards and key animation for a bunch well known series. His only directorial work is Is the order a rabbit? and depending on your tolerance for cute girls depends on your view on that series.
Overall, I think this shows main goal is to differentiate its school from other high schools. I think that’s the edge this show can bring to the table, and hopefully along with some good characters, we can get a good series out of it. I’ll still be checking it out, as I think it’s got a solid team behind it.
