Low Chance

  • The Asterisk War: The Academy City on the Water (Gakusen Toshi Asterisk, lit. “Academy Battle City Asterisk”)

Finally, the anime adaptation of Shomin Sample gets released. I’ve been looking forward to this one. It sounds like a standard harem setup, and is to a certain extent, but the source of humor is completely different. It mostly comes from the protagonist tricking the overly naive female lead into increasingly ridiculous scenarios. Mostly in private, of course.

The new season of Sister New Devil seemed like it was supposed to be a split-cour, but skipped the season that just ended in order to not try competing with Monster Musume and To Love-Ru Darkness 2nd, which was a wise decision. I wonder what it’ll be about this time.

For the record, the reason why Valkyrie Drive is so high up is because the Senran Kagura creator is behind this new franchise. I’m sure the game will be great, but I’m watching this to get a peek at what it’s about.

ARC-V has been dragging a bit lately, but they’ve found the plot again. I hope things get moving quickly.

Also, I only note To Love-Ru Darkness 2nd because its final episodes were delayed until late-October.
