    Decided to post my imports early in the month this time! Now to remember to edit it if anything changes… that’s why I usually don’t do it early.

      Have you decided what you will be watching this season?

      PS: Sora No Method was gorgeous.

      • something something says:

        Haha, I’d actually just got done posting a comment about it on the viewing plans post before seeing your comment in the mod queue. Yes, it was insanely good. Just god-tier 10/10 material from the first episode.

        My list should be:

        Already tried: Sorameso, Log Horizon 2
        Waiting on release: Amagi, Yuyuyu, Shirobako, Chaika 2

        Imports should be LH2, Chaika 2, And almost certainly Sorameso. Amagi if it’s good, which I really hope it is.

        • Avatar Zuko says:

          Did you know what Sorameso is being produced by a new studio? It’s called Studio 3Hz, and I can’t believe a newly formed studio did that episode, holy shit. Maybe they have an experienced staff? I don’t know! …E-excuse me while I re-watch the first episode.

          I’m on the fence with Denki-gai, I liked it, but it lacked a little bit of comedic substance, but I’ll keep watching it anyway. Also, the first episode of Gugure! Kokkuri-san was pleasant surprise. Essentially, it’s Barakamon + Natsume Yuujinchou with dry humour and the supernatural genre, which so far has a little to no impact on the series. Ah, Kohina is just simply adorable.

          By the way, do you re-watch the anime that you import?

          • Avatar hpulley says:

            I swear SoreMeso looks like it was made by PA Works but I can’t see anyone on the staff that worked there unless all the names are fake and they’re all refugees from that company. Charadesigns are straight out of NagiAsu. Looks beautiful and it’s really cute but episode 1 almost seems… complete. I just wonder what they’re going to do next other than introducing the other characters we haven’t seen yet from the OP and ED.

            Shirobako IS by PA Works but it has some new people, chara designs from Ponkan8 of OreGairu, GaruPan’s director. So maybe they have had some staff turnover or maybe this is just a subgroup. Not sure.

            Kohina is super adorable, that’s another super cute show, Gugure! Kokkuri-san. Kokkuri-san, Kokkuri-san… oh so cute!

            • something something says:

              Well most animation studios don’t really have major core directing/writing staff that keep reappearing (KyoAni is, as in many areas, one of the exceptions here). I’m not sure how much freelancing PA Works uses, but I assume it’s a lot like other studios (if maybe less than most, given they seem to have a somewhat more consistent visual style across a lot of their shows).

              What’s next? Well they hinted at quite a lot of goings-on in the past between Nonoka and the other friends. And a lot of that is likely going to center on Noel. People are already comparing it to Anohana (group of childhood friends reunites after years, fighting, reconciling, and bonding over an otherworldly being) and that’s definitely the overall approach I see it taking.

              Well and there’s always that huge THING in the sky to explain…

              As for Studio 3Hz, new company, first leading animation production gig. And what a phenomenal episode to start your company out with in that role! This is like hitting a grand slam in your very first at-bat as a pro.

              Of course, shock of all shocks, it’s started ranking on Amazon but not to the instant top-100 ranking I so very much wanted to see. It’s BD-only, though each volume is split between Amazon and non-Amazon versions. Both are currently ranking around 600-700. I know it’s WAAAAY early, particularly for an original anime, but damn if that first episode isn’t enough to get an instant reaction nothing is.

              Now to hope CR announces Shirobako in the next few days before it airs.

              • Avatar hpulley says:

                Yes, by my saying that it looks like PA Works made SoraMeso I mean that as high praise. Visually it was stunning. I just hope they can keep that up for the rest of the season. I hope they don’t follow up PA Works with never resolved love polygons… hopefully none of that in Shirobako either.

                Cross Ange is in the top 100… wonders never cease.

                • something something says:

                  A new Sunrise action/mecha show debuting in the top 100 is pretty much a given, tho. Where they go from there is the real question.

                  Also probably expecting a Mizuki Nana event ticket again like Valvrave (oh hey, there’s a not-awful comparison we can draw between the two!).

          • something something says:

            Yeah I’m super impressed that they managed this as a first episode. Now whether it was all a fluke and it falls apart from here because they invested too much in the opener… I don’t even want to consider it but you never know. ;_;

            Yeah, I got a recommendation just today for Kokkuri-san, and since it’s on CR I guess I’ll try it out, eventually anyway. It had gone totally under my radar so far.

            I almost never rewatch. No time! I might rewatch ~2-3 shows a year, and even then I use subbed BD rips rather than the BDs I purchased themselves (unless it’s a series I need to watch raw anyway for some reason).
