What am I watching? – Summer 2013 edition


The summer 2013 anime season is already in week 3 so I might as well say what I am watching and give some recommendations, just like I did in 2012.

My friend Seb wrote up his mini review of this season and what he is watching on his blog right here.

So I am watching 12 things this season…. WOAH….

  • Free! – KyoAni, hype, swimming, bishounen, hype, naked guys, etc. Its amazing! #nohomo
  • Gatchaman Crowds – It gives me the feeling of Tiger and Bunny, but the main girl is sooooooo crazy, she makes Nyaruko look normal.
  • Genshiken Nidaime – The third season of an anime about otaku in a university anime club. Loved the first 2, loving the manga, definitely a must watch, cause the are referencing new anime and thats just so cool.
  • Gin no Saji – an anime about agriculture, somewhat like Moyashimon. Made by the same guy who made the Fullmetal Alchemist manga, so the artstyle looks very similar.
  • The World God Only Knows Season 3 The Goddesses Arc – If you know the first two or the manga, must watch. If not, go watch the first 2 and read the manga.
  • Railgun S – continuing from the previous season this is a prequel to the Index and Railgun series.
  • Servant x Service – Resembles Working!! a lot and has the best OP of the season hands down.
  • Danganronpa – Mystery anime with a survival game similar to Mirai Nikki, based of a game, should be good.
  • Kimi no iru Machi – The manga was good, had high hopes for the anime, not that great so far…
  • Shingeki no Kyojin – Best series of last season by far, and I would even say that its the best series this year, it has generated way to much hype. The series is very solid and has a good premise. If you dont trust me, here is a link to a first impression video by AnimeZone.
  • Wata Mote – amazing manga, amazing series. Unpopular girl trying to live a normal high school life and is failing, but in a cute way 🙂
  • Monogatari Series Season 2 (Zenmonogatari) – Best show ever: 3rd season. Shaft is doing it again. The animation, the quality, the character development, the plot!

So there you have it. Its a big list, so I have no idea how I am supposed to keep up to date with all of this, AND do well in my studies this semester… Буду стараться, чё!
