UQ Holder thread #12544654

Seriously, /a/, get a grip, it's like Negima ending all over again!

...oh wait.


That thing where the villains are infinitely more likable than the protagonists; which is exactly the reason you are laughing so much.

But, really, Arfoire is love

may actually be really good if they use working models for radiation spread and so on. These ellipses in the manga look awful. What about the mountain ranges? Wind patterns? Come on, do your homework, and this shit will look beautiful. I've always been a sucker for post-apocalyptic city landscapes, anyway.

** Tokyo Ravens

Sounds... well, pretty fucking stupid. But the staff? The name of Kanasaki Takaomi at least promises good comedy.

Walkure Romanze

Sounds like no. We'll see, if I hear something positive about it, I may actually give it a chance.

Galilei Donna

Practically everything that can be wrong with an original anime is wrong here. The title makes you think there will be lots of faux astronomy... the director hasn't done anything in ages... the chara design is kind of bad... sigh. Skip.

Magi, Freezing, IS

S2 of shit is still shit.

Sekai de Ichiban Tsuyoku Naritai! 

The setting seems... eh, not too unoriginal, but? Still doesn't interest me. Also that ecchi there is going to ruin whatever good parts the anime has.

** Yuusha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shuushoku o Ketsui Shimashita

Pointlessly long title? Check. Nobody in the staff seems promising? Check. Setting that can be good, but only if actually used for the setting? Check. Everything sounds like it would devolve into a stupid harem? Check. We'll see.
edit: if they manage to relay this well, then I may actually watch it.

My Mental Multiple-Choice Power Is Completely Ruining My School Romantic Comedy

Oh god this is even worse, the setting that actually kind of interested me in Yuusha ni is missing here. Drop before I've even started it.

* Ginkitsune

May be good, may be bad, I will probably skip it either way.

*** Outbreak Company

Oh god this sounds awful *checks out what else the author has written* fuck this is from the guy with Scrapped Princess will watch 100% for the chance it evolves into an epic fantasy/scifi.

* Coppelion

Seems like srsbsns on first glance. I may check the manga, but I am generally not in the mood for such stuff.

BlazBlue, Hajime no Ippo, White Album, Aikatsu, Gundam

meh. haven't seen the prev stuff in this franchise. wont start from this season exactly.

Golden Time

Could be good *checks what else the author has written* no, I will never suffer through another Toradora, fuck this shit.

Bushi Road

Smells like not.

* Kyoukai no Kanata

Smells like not. Really, KyoAni, stop with this chara design, ok? Pretty please?

> Unbreakable Machine-Doll

What, first glance is not too promising, lessee who works on this... The director of Plastic Little... lessee the pv... OH GOD THAT MUSIC this is going to be great. Just my taste.

* Samurai Flamenco

Staff seems promising. The anime itself, not.

Nagi no Asukara

Feels like another Hanasaku Iroha. Skip.

Ace of Diamond, Kuroko no Basket, Yowamushi Pedal

Do I need to say anything? Not my cup of tea.

** Arpeggio of Blue Steel: Ars Nova

Wha... this shit is strange. Really fucking strange. Will check out, probably.

>> Log Horizon

From the author of MaoYuu the novels? Whoa, we may actually get something that can compare to the series about the Deep. Besides, I am just finishing up with .hack//, I'll be hungry for more virtual reality stuff.

> Non Non Biyori

Doesn't sound bad at all. Will check out. //edit: PV2 > bump up.

> Strike the Blood

Author did Dantalian no Shoka. Silver Link. Will watch.

* Pupa

Deen... eh... this preview... seems like it will be loldeep... but... hmm. May check out.



>>> Valvrave


Yozakura Quartet

I really need to get around to watching this. We'll see if I can get it out of my backlog till then.

Tesagure! Bukatsu-mono


** Miss Monochrome

This actually sounds pretty interesting.
edit: shit, turns out this is just an extended ad for some Miku. Too lazy to even bother reading more...

Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta

This sounds pretty bad. Staff sounds pretty bad too. Skip.

>>> Kyousogiga


>>> Kill la Kill


Diabolik Lovers

Seems like too much of a stupid shoujo reverse harem for me.

Under the line:
>>> x3
>> x1
> x3
(so 7 series that I know I will be watching)
*** x1
** x4
* x5
(so maximum of 16 series that I may watch)

Am I missing anything?

Hello, hello, it's a New World

The anime is good --or, at least, better.

But I already miss Mimiru.

edit: after the curtain fell: well, it wasn't... good.

Even so, it was better than //Sign.

But I still miss Mimiru.

So, am back

So, internet again. Twenty new episodes. Stuff like that.

What was the first thing I did after checking mail/tt/whatever else I check?

Reread Mac Hall.

You know, when thinking up a plot... it's much easier if you just dump a Mary Sue somewhere there (even if just in the backstory). The real world is way too chaotic; so if you want to mimic it, the story needs to be chaotic too. Mary Sues on the other hand provide convolving points for the numerous plot arcs, thus creating a guideline system over the sea of chaos.

Whuh. I just described the theory behind the ta'veren.
