5 Anime to Check Out This Fall Season

As the summer anime lineup came and went, the fall lineup has already begun.  Last season had some strong standouts, like Berserk, Mob Psycho 100, and Tales of Zestiria the X, and I’m seeing even more anime with standout potential for the Fall.  As each series this season reaches into their second or third episodes, it’s a perfect time to release my Top 5 anime so you don’t get caught falling behind.  Keep in mind, this list is in no particular order.  Also be mindful that you can catch all of these shows primarily on Crunchyroll and Funimation, as well as Daisuke.      Occultic;Nine Looking visually reminiscent of the popular RPG series Persona, Occultic;Nine revolves around a teenager, Yuuta Gamon and his blog, which he uses to explain away the paranormal with science, only to have his exploits mystically backfire on him.  Through his exploits, he soon meets a group who confronts him about the occult and paranormal, and before we know it we’re in full swing for some crazy season 10 X-Files type of murder-mystery.   There’s a little fun, a few bland tropes here and there, and one hell of an oppai (the biggest trope of all)….

Cowboy Bebop Coming to Blu-Ray, Digital Download

    At last weeks Otakon Convention in Dallas, Funimation made a slew of announcements that would make any Otaku’s panties drop.  How fitting, amiright?  Spokesmen from Sunrise International announced that FUNinmation studios acquired the rights to many series including additional episodes of Fairy Tail, Tales of the Abyss, both seasons of Code Geass, including the Akito OVA and the Banner of the Stars series.

Hey Warner Bros, Nobody Wants an Akira Adaptation

    Back in 2008, Warner Bros. paid oodles of money to acquire the rights to the anime classic, Akira. Since then they’ve been trying desperately to get the movie off the ground. Hey Warner Bros, allow me to let you in on a little secret; Nobody wants to see an adaptation of Akira!

7 FREE Sci Fi Movies

More often than not the proclamation of “free” comes with strings attached. In this case there’s no catch, only a hand-picked collection of Sci Fi movies for you to enjoy. Okay, I lied, there’s a bit of a catch. You’ll likely have to sit through an ad or three. But hey, that’s the not so hidden “cost” of the internet nowadays. Some of these films I’ve seen and absolutely adore, while others I’ve heard great things about but never had the opportunity to watch them just yet. Either way, I hope you enjoy them!

Iron Man: Rise of Technovore – Trailer

Iron Man’s first foray into anime was a collaboration between Marvel and Madhouse back in 2010 with Iron Man: Animated Series. The 12 episode series was directed by Yuzo Sato based off of the story written by Warren Ellis. Marvel and Madhouse are teaming up again with Iron Man: Rise of Technovore, the direct-to-video follow-up to the animated series. This time around it’s written by Brandon Auman and directed by Hiroshi Hamasaki.

New Japan Photo Craze Better Than Planking

    The latest craze to come out of Japan has finally made it’s way stateside.  For lack of a better term, Dragonballing is the action of taking a picture to emulate your favorite Dragonball attack, while all your friends appear to be blasted or affected by it, by making alligators in the air.  It makes planking look totally fucking stupid, by the way.  Well, it was stupid to begin with. 

RWBY Black Trailer

  I would like to take the time to say, this is everything Samurai 7 wasn’t.  Especially given the greatness of the opening fight sequence, no other fight scene lived up to it throughout the rest of the series.  The Black Trailer, however, lives up to the reputation of the previous trailers, but like the White trailer, it goes a step further, with movement speed going so fast the eye is seemingly incapable of keeping up.  I now know what Krillin experiences when he’s watching Super Saiyan Goku engaged in hand-to-hand combat.  It’s fucking brilliant!
