The Fall 2014 Anime season is starting, and that means it's time for a fresh thread!

Previously, on General Anime: The SUmmer 2014 season has some strong contenders, but ultimately seemed a little lackluster. Blue Spring Ride was the most Shoujo of Shoujo shows, but was still excellent, while Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun was a nice surprise for most of us, being one of the funniest shows in a long time. And surprising no one, Sword Art Online II's Kirito remains a special snowflake, bringing a lightsaber to a gunfight and still winning while staring at Sinon's ass.

Coming Up:

Log Horizon Season 2. Nothing else really matters, because we're just living in the Database!

Oh, ok, yeah, there's a whole pile of other stuff coming too, and much of it looks to be fantastic. Jhiday proves he's a masochist by watching and reviewing the first episodes of each new series in his New Anime Thread. I'll have my usual summary of what shows are incoming and links to where they're streaming as they're announced posted here shortly.

Hopefully Iksalem will be along shortly with a new RPGtan for us to enjoy as well. :)

Enjoy the new season folks, looks to be a fun one!

I literally have no idea what I'm going to wind up watching this season. I like the sound of Amagi Park and Wolf Girl & Black Prince, but I really do hope something else pops up, because it's going to be very lonely if everyone else is focusing on Log Horizon and Chaika.

I know Chaika got a lot of attention last season, but it didn't hold mine past the 4th episode. I plan to go back and watch it all at once, but it's not a show I'll watch as it streams weekly.

And not having played or watched any of the Fate games or shows, I'm not interested in that one myself either :)
