During my yesterday’s long wait I’ve managed to watch all the first episodes from the new animes chosen from the new season and even chose another 3. From the first batch the most promising untill now seems to be Shokugeki no Soma – as promised it made me laugh several times and is quite bonkers! Got to search for the manga later.
Now on to the next three:
Gunslinger Stratos – The animation
“The story revolves on a group of gunslingers, each from the two universes who participate in Operation Stratos, particularly on a group of four childhood friends: Tohru Kazasumi, Kyōka Katagiri, Kyōma Katagiri, and Shizune Rindo, who all must confront their own flaws and differences when they battle their alternate selves in order to survive.” – from wikipedia’s page on square enix’s game, being the anime an adaptation from it
“This story takes place in a future not too far away when androids that look exactly like humans begin to spread across the world. The android production company SA Corp. produced Giftia, a new kind of android that has the most amount of emotion and human-like qualities out of any other model ever seen.
However, due to problems in technology, the androids have a service life, and once they pass that, they… Well, it gets pretty bad. For this sake, SA Corp. creates a terminal service in order to retrieve Giftia that have gone past their service life. A new employee at the terminal service named Tsukasa Mizugaki forms a team with the Giftia Isla to retrieve the other androids, but…” – myanimelist
“Victim of treachery, the army from the prestigious kingdom of Parse is defeated by its traditional enemy, the Lusitania. Its capital, Ecbatana, falls victim to the flames. Alone Arslan, the young heir to the throne, Daryoon, a general who remained loyal, and Narsus, an ex-military strategist retired with his disciple Elam, managed to escape. They will soon be joined by Gieve, a wandering minstrel, Alfreed, heiress to the country of thieves who is infatuated with Narsus, and the beautiful Pharangese, priestess devoted from her birth to the protection of Arslan.
Committed to reclaiming his throne, Arslan will have to fight the Lusitanian invaders and the one who proclaimed himself the only legitimate heir: Hermes, the knight of the silver helm. Thus begins a long and sore struggle for Arslan, a young man who has disliked war for all of his fourteen years, but who nonetheless will aim to free his country from slavery and shatter the collar shackle of aristocracy…” – myanimelist
I’m not so sure about the first two, they seem ok although only time will tell. As for Arslan Senki I’ve started reading the manga once, caught all the scanlated chapters there were and was really enjoying it but, I don’t remember why, forgot to continue reading at some point XP That said I’ll go back and finish the manga and hopefully the anime will be as good
