Spring 2013 Anime Picks!
The season starts off strong with many good anime. Sorry for the wait. I did say that there were going to be a lot of them though lol. Here are my picks for the Spring 2013 Anime season:
- Date A Live – Who knew subduing rampart spirit girls could be this simple? Just talk to them for a bit and then date them. Works every time right, right? Well it does in Date A Live, and I couldn’t be enjoying it anymore lol. After reading a bit of the manga and then seeing that an anime was coming out for it, I was very happy. Date A Live is your supernatural, fighting, comedy, harem for the season.

- Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S – The highly anticipated second season the the To Aru Ragun sereies which follows Misaka and her friends as the deal with certain incidents going on in Academy City. This season will focus around The Sisters, but I wont spoil who they are for the sake of those who haven’t watched it yet or just don’t know =)

- Namiuchigawa no Muromi-san – This anime is too hilarious, and I love it. Join Muromi, a mermaid, and her friends in their crazy antics and stories which are very entertaining if you’re looking for a good laugh.

- Haiyore! Nyaruko-san W – Second season of our favorite comedic Nyarlathotep as she defends the Earth from wayward aliens and tries to get Mahiro to love and make love to her constantly Lol.

- Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Bride – The second season of our favorite Master Samurai girls and their general Muneakira-san. This time around Dark Master Samurai appear looking to challenge the dojo and looking for Jubei. The only problem is that Jubei is unable to transform into her powerful alter ego and our main characters are outnumbered Master Samurai Wise. I was looking forward to the second season season of this, and with it’t humor, action, and of course ecchi, I am very pleased lol. Watching it uncensored is the best =^_^=

- Hataraku Maou-sama (The Devil Is A Part-Timer) – What happens when the demon king of another realm ends up in our modern day world? Funny happens, that’s what. Trying to adapt and live in the modern day world is no easy task, especially when you can’t use your powers anymore. Maou, and his general are trying to do their best to survive while living like normal people when the hero of their realm catches Maou attempting to use his powers at his part-time job, and the funny, but troublesome events begin from there. This series is an insta fave lol.

- Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge – Ah “Killing Goods”. Murderous weapons passed down in families for generations until they end up in the hands of our modern day characters. Those and a certain curse placed on a girl of royal origin make up the main plot of this story. I wasn’t sure what to really expect at first when I read the description about the main character having a hair fetish, and a girl with her cursed uncut table hair that could for some reason only be cut with his special pair of scissors (Which happens to be his Killing Goods by the way), but I went into this series and loved watching the first two episodes. Within these first two episodes everything was pretty much explained, and I can’t wait to see where they’re going to go with it.

- Devil Survivor 2 The Animation – As I’m sure you know by now I love the Shin Megami Tensei series, and Devil Survivor 2 is no exception. As demons start to invade Tokyo our main characters dont know whats going on or what to do until they are attacked and forced to fight for survival. According to what I’ve herd the anime is going to have its own original route from the game, and with the way the anime is now I’m sure it will be good.

- Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU) – I started watching this anime and fell in love with it immediately. The character personalities just make this show so great, and it looks like we’re in for a good ride with what the plot is about. The dialogue between the main characters is too funny as well. Check it out for yourself and see what I mean lol

- Hentai Ouji to Warawanai (The “Hentai” Prince and The Stony Cat) – I started reading the manga to this a little while before hearing that anime was being made, and I was very excited. Our main character is a perpetual liar, and pervert as well. He does however want to change this about himself because his habits sometimes get him into trouble. After hearing about a rumor about a cat statue that has the ability to take away unwanted personality traits and give them to someone else who needs them, he decides to try it. After meeting another girl with a similar problem about showing her emotions so freely and wanting to be more grown up like, they make their wishes. They discover the next day that the powers of the cat did indeed work, and they realize that they don’t like the changes. They now have to work together to get their personalities back. The only problem is figuring out who has their old traits and getting them to give them back.

- Oreimo 2 (My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute 2) – The second season of Oreimo. One of our favorite brother sister anime returns and it seems that there will be a lot more life counselling from the looks of it as well as some new developments between characters. Looks like things will be just as lively this time around in the world of Oreimo.

- Photokano – A romance, comedy, harem, and a very good one at that. At first I thought that this series was going to be like the Amagami series, and I was right but also kind of wrong too. First let me say that I’m really liking Photokano so far a lot. The main character isn’t really some shy guy walking around feeling sorry that he can’t get a girlfriend or anything like that. He simply picks up his camera and goes to work so to speak lol. The females in this are wonderful too. Even though the high school scenario thing for a romance anime has been done many times, the characters all kind of have a refreshing taste to them. If you’re looking for a nice light-hearted anime this season then Photokano is for you.

- Majestic Prince – As humanity gains new technology and explores new frontiers, we rely on those trained at a special academy to pilot mechs and protect humanity from the invasion of alien lifeforms known as Urugaru. Our main characters however are part of Team Rabbits – also known as the Fail 5 lol. I’m loving this anime so very much. The main characters are too hilarious as each of them have their own quirks and unique personalities which make up their group.

- Suisei no Gargantia – In the future the Earth has become uninhabitable and mankind has taken to space and formed the Galactic Alliance to continue living. Mankind however is at war with creatures known as the Hideauze. During a battle Ledo is sucked into a wormhole and when he awakes finds himself on a planet which the locals explains to him is the Earth, the birth-place of humanity. This however strikes Ledo as odd due to the fact that members of the Galactic Alliance only know of the planet to exist in stories and believe it is a myth. From watching the second episode of the anime, it looks like things can get serious in this anime real quick. Those who have already watched it know what I mean lol

- Valvrave The Liberator – I’ve only watched the first episode of this series since it started a week after all the others, but I can already say that I will be watching this one as the first episode was great. There is so much emotion and sadness as war breaks out unexpectedly on the main characters colony and many are killed. This seems to be a mix of mecha, and supernatural, but I’ll let you watch the first episode and see what I mean. Boy was the ending of this first episode surprising. I don’t think anyone was expecting that to happen lol

- Attack On Titan (Shingeki no Kyoujin) – In the past hundred years mankind has been able to live in peace behind the stone walls that protect us from the man eating giants, but that all changes once the Titans suddenly appear and start destroying civilization. Definitely do no skip out on this anime this season. It is great.
Wikipedia – Shingeki no Kyoujin (Attack On Titan)
- Karneval – I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into when I decided to give this a watch, but I was pleased with the result. This is looking to be a good series as we follow Nai who is looking for his friend who suddenly went missing, Gareki, who steals and pick-pockets for a living, and the members of an organization known as “Circus” who with their special abilities counter and investigate crimes and keep peace and order among society as well as putting on circus shows for the general public.

- Mushibugyou – Do you hate giant insects as much as I do? Then you’re gonna love Mushibugyou. Join all the giant spider killing fun in this edo period anime where for some reason giant insects are a nuisance to civilization, and our main character is out to be the best exterminator her can by slicing and dicing and saving as many people as he can.
