PS - Just talk about current season or carry-overs from last season. I don't want this to derail into Oh I RECOMMEND YOU WATCH: abcdefgh.... series.  I'll make the general recommendations/personal toplist(s) thread here: http://spacesharkinc.icla ... -rankings-thread-l5v

I bet there's a healthy size of otakus and casual anime fans in the school of sharks here.

So, let it begin!

Summer 2015 season started pretty recently, so it's hard to pass judgment but ones I'm keeping an eye on or already like are:

- Working season 3 -- JUST DO IT SATOU - Souma Labeouf and others in Wagnaria

- Gate -- all your animu and mango dreams meet reality... it's not as kawaii and/or tsugoi as you think. started reading the manga and things get... kinda real. The depictions of absolutely one-sided massacre, as well as very obvious parallels in slavery, imperialism/colonialism, military histories, etc. is just the beginning.

- Himouto! Umaru-chan  -- I find it annoying and cute at the same time. FeelsBadman for the older brother.

- Mon Musu -- I suspect this series is probably going nowhere other than having more monster girls added to the harem. I remember dropping the manga cuz it got boring pretty fast and same will happen here, probably. From the manga, my fav was Arachne . Prepare yourself for monster girl titties =_=

- Okusama ga Seitokaicho -- this series had me at tossing condoms like confetti. Gave me one of the best laughs I had from an anime in recent memory.  and for those interested, there's 2d titties of a high school girl and MC that's not too afraid of getting a feel in not entirely perverted way . Too bad this series is only like 8min long per episode.

- Gakkou Gurashi -- HOLY SHIT how did I miss this one earlier in the lineup. Easily one of my favorites this season and I don't think I even have to look at how the others turn out. (edited in 7/17)

- Shimoneta -- whole lot of comical lewdness that stems from a commentary on modern sexual culture, otaku culture, and (relatively Japanese-centric) mainstream anti-culture. It's brilliant like the glistening wetness on your hand from your very first climax XD (I tried man, I tried).

Carry-overs from last season:
- Shokugeki -- English for it is Food Wars, I believe. Megumi chan is my waifu. Too bad she's totally poised to be pushed out from shipping with Soma b/c of Erina.

- Arslan Senki -- I thought I'd hate this series but surprisingly liking it. ended up marathoning 13 episodes that are out at time of writing in one day.

DROPPED (by me):
- Akagami no Shirayuki-hime -- snow white in red or something like that in English. medicine woman deal here got me little interested but I can see this just spiraling off into a stereotypical shoujo romance stuff. I mean it already has the makings of knight/prince on white horse saves damsel in distress. However, the leads make just enough effort to fidget around uncomfortably in their given molds (both as character archetypes and characters within the context of the story) that makes me come back to the series but it's still not very interesting. Maybe I'll marathon the series once it's done one day.

- Overlord -- another virtual MMO thing that seems like a different take on it from likes of SAO or Log Horizon, which is a good thing when anime/manga/light novels about virtual mmo and/or gamers seem to be dime a dozen BUT I personally prefer reading something like Legendary Moonlight Sculptor (originally Korean light novel, and yes the translations on baka-tsuki are somewhat poor but richer stories than the others I've encountered in this "genre" so far)

- Rokka no Yuusha -- looks like generic male power-up fantasy more or less. BORING

- Classroom Crisis -- What if we put the traditional Japanese penchant for corporate politics and culture, gifted children beyond 1% of 1%, and way more free reign for said kids than ever is prudent into the same bag? Oh and did I mention the highly alpha, probably going to be super OP MC who's the CEO's bastard or something and also the boss of the featured special kids program/class? conclusion: meh, this one's not really for me. I can see this being somewhat appealing to some of the people in similar age group as the majority of characters depicted though.

I think you made the comment considering what i listed, but just to be sure -
Point of clarification: The list I made is NOT comprehensive. It's just a list of series that piqued my interest in some way, at least enough for me to check them out for first 2-3 episodes. Some of them will probably disappoint me in some way and will get dropped in near future. 
...

Charlotte just didn't grab my attention. Maybe I'll check it out though. Have no idea what it's about.

As for God Eater, what's that all about? I don't know the game you're talking about. Care to elaborate (not so much on the game but what the setting and/or brief description of the characters/narrative is)? If I remember correctly the studio that recently finished the new fate/stay is working on this one?

I get what you mean, about the list of series that piques your interest, oh well c=.

As for God Eater, it's an adaption of the PsP Game, Gods Eater Burst, looks like i was misinformed, 1st episode aired yesterday c=

It's set in Japan, year 2071, where monsters known as Aragami has destroyed most of the world, and an organisation called Fenrir was created to exterminate the Aragami using weapons known as using God Arcs. God Arcs being a hugeeeee gun, but new types would have gun modes and blade modes c=

Not really too sure about the rest, been a while since I've played the game, but ye, it's made by the studio that recently finished Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works. Hoping for some good stuff for God Eater though =)

Charlotte - not getting good vibes from it. reminds me a little of first few (and only) episodes I watched of Death Note. I'm dropping this one

God Eater -- I just watched the first episode and I have to say I'm not seeing anything impressive. Probably just another show that has the MC go on an exponential power curve but with flashy-for- anime-standard graphics/fighting scenes. *yawn

also forgot to mention in my earlier posts:

Kuusen Madoushi Kouhosei no Kyoukan -- makes me cringe. prob gonna devolve into male power fantasy + harem-rom/com-ish crap. Dropping it now is not early enough, lol.

Gakkou Gurashi --
two words: Holy Smokes.

I actually dismissed the series a bit after watching like first half of the episode and got bored with it a bit. I'm so glad I came back to watch it again a little while ago on a whim. It's already a spoiler by making this comparison but... I had a similar experience with Madoka few years back.

Downloaded episodes 1-13 for Shokugeki no Soma, still waiting for it to finish over this season, and I'm doing the same for Ore Monogatari!

Interested in what God Eater will turn out, I hope the dubbed version still has Yuri Lowenthal voicing Soma.

I don't really like dub as well, but if it has Yuri Lowenthal, I am in since I'm a fan.

He also voiced like so many npcs in games, example would be Fallout: New Vegas where they used his lines for like 50% of the npcs in the game lol

this is first I've ever heard of someone actually liking a dub voice actor. 0_o

I generally find dubs very icky too.

There's something unique about him, whether its dub or just voice acting in games.

SO TURNING THE CONVERSATION AROUND -

SHIMONETA aka A Boring World where the concept of dirty jokes doesn't exist.
I just discovered another series on this season's bloc that is a little like next logical extreme of Seitokai Yakuindomo. However, it's got something beneath all the blatant mentions of genitalia, innuendos, sexual gestures, and anything dirty/sexual in general that makes a surprisingly insightful and somewhat tragic/slightly depressing social commentary not just about this extreme fictional society but actually about the current modern society as well in relation to sexual culture (obviously most apt to Japan but it's more widely applicable too as well).

Westerners may find it a little less relatable than other series and they may mistake it for just another somewhat over the top perverted series that doesn't quite go over to territories of hentai, but it is actually so much more than that. If you haven't lived your life in a social setting where stoicism is normal and expressions of your emotions/views are often considered/downplayed as immature/childish, undermining authority and/or your elders, "not manly", etc. than indeed I can imagine this falling short for you.

Definitely keeping an eye on this one. It's easily one of the best series this season in terms of first impressions.

PS- a few "Don't let the cover fool you" series this season Gakkou and now this.

LOL, Seitokai Yakuindomo was already so lewd, now we have something even better.
