Summer Season Choices 2016

Shokugeki no Soma Season 2

This starts from where it left off in last years anime season. The Autumn Election finals are under way, with strong characters like Soma and Megumi representing the misunderstood Polar Star Dorm! Who will be the ultimate winner?

Momokuri

In this anime you get a lovely mixture of cute and damn right crazy. This is about a girl called Yuki Kurihara, a second year high school student, who falls in love with Shinya Momotsuki, a boy a year below her. She takes secret photos of him for her ‘Momo-kun Photo Collection’. When the collection hits a hundred, she decides to confess to him. He agrees to go out with her and, the anime follows them as they progress in their relationship.

This Art Club Has a Problem!

This Art Club Has a Problem! is about a group of middle school students who are a member of the schools art club. One member, Uchimaki Subaru, uses his skills to create the perfect 2D Waifu, whilst another member ,Usami Mizuki,  pines over him whilst drawing normal things. The president sleeps all the time on the sofa, whilst a strange foreign student called Colette, pops up every now and again. This anime is random and sometimes hits on dangerously boring.

NEW GAME!

After graduating high school, Suzukaze Aoba gets a job at a gaming company called Eagle Jump. It is not any ordinary gaming company though, as it is the company that produced ‘Fairies Story’, the game that she obsessed over as a child. The anime is about her getting her footing in the company, learning design and making new friends.

Sweetness and Lightning 

Kohei lost his wife six months ago and is now a single father of his young daughter Tsumugi. He can’t cook and has trouble balancing his professional life as a teacher. Over a chance encounter at a flower festival, he meets Kotori, a student in his class. Her mum is a busy professional cook and owns a restaurant, yet she can’t cook herself. The anime is about them learning to cook together with his daughter and, trying yummy food!

Amanchu!

Last but not least is Amanchu, an anime about a young girl nicknamed ‘Teko’, who moves to a new school is a new town. She meets a girl nicknamed ‘Pikari’, who is a diver at the local diving school, of which her grandma owns. Pikari introduces Teko to the wonderful world of diving, accompanied by their new friends at the schools diving club.

Girl Friend Beta

Girl Friend (Kari) started off as a dating simulator Japanese game, that was released on smart phones in 2012. The game became so popular, that an anime was released in 2014. The anime looks at high school, through the point of view of different cute high school girls.

The first character that is introduced is Kokomi Shiina. She is a second year student, who is part of the rhythmic gymnastics club. She goes to school every morning before classes, to train for her competitions. She pops up now and then after the second episode, taking part in the other girls stories. There is also Akane Sakurai, who is part of the broadcast committee. She is the host of her lunchtime radio show.

My favourite combination of girls are Erena Mochizuki and Fumio Murakami. Erena is an outgoing girl who is part of the photography club. She takes photos of girls that she finds cute an interesting. Her best friend is Fumio, who is a quiet girl who manages the library. The episode on how they become friends is interesting and slightly hits the yuri category, in a good way of course.

The last girl that will steal your heart is Chloe Lemaire. She is a French transfer student, that has been living in Japan since her first year at high school. She always spends her time researching Japanese culture in the library and, loves all things Japanese. She makes mistakes in her Japanese, of which her friends often end up correcting her.

As an anime, I love the premise of it. It is a light hearted anime, that shows adorable girls running around leading their lives. The colours are light and beautiful, with lovely and outstanding characters, who shine through. Their character design is ten to none. The only thing you may notice is that all the characters sound the same. You need to persevere through this, as they introduce new characters and break them up as the series goes on.

Overall, I recommend this anime to anyone who is feeling low. It will cheer you up in a second.

 

 

Sword Art Online II

This second season of SAO is the thing to look out for every week! 

Kirito and Asuna start off in the anime living a happy life, They go to school, they play ALFheim online with their friends, they are madly in love. This is until a character in the game called Gun Gale Online shoots people, which results in their real life deaths. Kirito is forced into this world, transferring his stats, in order to discover who he is. Kirito has no idea how to play the game, so he asks a character how to play. This character is called Sinon, who thinks he is a girl due to his long hair. When she later finds out he is not, he gains a rival. 

Sinon is one of the characters you sympathise with in this anime, due to her being so fragile. In reality, she shot a man who tried to rob a post office, so she suffers panic and vomiting whenever she sees a gun. She joined GGO in order to get over this phobia and to become the strongest. 

I hold this anime dear to my heart, as it has inspired me to play video games again (which pleases my gamer boyfriend greatly). It is an anime which inspires and grabs the viewers every week. Every Sunday I am at my laptop ready to go. If you enjoyed SAO 1, you will definitely enjoy this.
