[Spoilers] [General Anime Summer 2019] Create a General Anime Thread, with the light God could not know

🌻 Welcome to the Summer 2019 General Anime Thread! 🌻


🌻 These seasonal threads tend to focus on currently airing anime, but you're welcome to post about anything anime or anime-adjacent, old or new. However, in the rare cases where discussion of a particular show becomes too overwhelming or too much of a hot-button topic, it may be preferred to move that discussion to a show-specific thread. We also have a thread specifically for non-current anime.

🌻 Please note that we do not have much of a spoiler policy here - avoid spoiling major things you may know about upcoming episodes if you are familiar with the source material for an adaptation, but otherwise, most anything goes. Try to be considerate, but also expect unmarked spoilers for anything that's aired. If you would prefer a more restrictive policy, you can find one in the thread for non-current anime.

🌻 Using a commonly recognized name for the show you're talking about is helpful - it's not required, but in the past we've had issues with overly-clever names leading to confusion among threadgoers who aren't familiar with any given show.

Useful links:
  • LiveChart lists all the anime for each season, with links to where each can be streamed, along with trailers and official websites and more.
  • because.moe offers easy lookup of where you can stream any anime in various regions.
  • Sakuga Blog delves into the craft of anime and highlights the creators working behind the scenes.

By the way, if you're wondering about the thread title, there's a certain show airing this season that some of us are anticipating very much:

Will our heroine finally get named moves with cut-ins? Will our heroine's friend actually become a rock concert girl?

Well, looking over at anichart it looks like my shortlist of things (assuming I have access) looks like:

DanMachi S2
Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou
Vinland Saga
Tsuujou Kougeki ga Zentai Kougeki de Ni-kai Kougeki no Okaasan wa Suki desu ka?
- what a mouthfull?
Araburu Kisetsu no Otome-domo yo. - Mari Okada script so I'm there
Uchi no Ko no Tame Naraba, Ore wa Moshikashitara Maou mo Taoseru Kamo Shirenai.
Given
- its a music anime
Joshikousei no Mudazukai - I think mostly because Haruka Tomatsu, who I like, is voicing what appears to be the main protagonist. Plus it seems to have enough quirk for me.

Will steer clear of Kochoki: Wakaki Nobunaga. Shows featuring Nobunaga have a bad rep at the best of times, let along this looking like Nobunaga: the Wonder Years.

Probably also won't watch Accelerator. Despite liking the Index-verse, I really never liked Accelerator so a show about him would seem a tough pill to swallow.

I'm real curious about Granbelm:

 


PV1, PV2

It's... magical girl mecha? It's an original, so I have no idea how it'll turn out, but it sure looks good. Notably, it's from the same writer as A Place Further Than the Universe (and many other works). The director previously did Wakaba*Girl and Re:Zero, but I haven't seen either of those.

I'm gonna do what I did the last couple of seasons and give everything that's not a continuation of a show i haven't seen, or a show aimed at little kids and try out the first episode. I expect to drop most of them

Vinland Saga is the one I'm most interested in.

I still need to go back and catch up on what I started the last season though.

This will be an interesting season. A bunch of Isekai shows, which are right up my alley. Though two give me pause...

Isekai with Mom (aka Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks?)-- I read a FanTrans of the first light novel for this a while back out of curiosity, and it's... weird. Definitely catering to the "Oedipus Fetish" crowd, I think. Nothing overt, but a bit creepy. I imagine the anime will only amplify this since we'll actually see Sexy Mom on screen for much of it.

Demon Daughter (aka For My Daughter, I'd Even Defeat a Demon Lord) -- For this one, I expect the anime to be cute and adorable, since I'm not certain how far into the series a 1-cour season will get. But J-Novel has been translating this one, and I read the first bunch of novels, and...

Spoiler: Show
The series kinda pulls an Usagi Drop because the series takes place over a number of years (With a big time skip at one point). The little girl is only his adopted daughter, but she crushes on him hard and it never goes away. And once she grows up... *sigh* It would be one thing if he didn't encounter her till she was in her teens and just took care of her for a few years, but she's like 5 or something when he finds her. So I Find the whole thing kinda creepy. But the first few novels were adorable, which makes it all the more tragic. :/

Araburu Kisetsu no Otome-domo yo. - Mari Okada script so I'm there
It looked interesting anyway, but Okada's script makes it a lock, yeah.

Past that I have no idea. DanMachi, some continuing stuff. I'll probably wait for word of mouth on the rest.

There are no less than four new isekai shows this season :
- Arifureta: From Commonplace to World's Strongest
- Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks?
- Isekai Cheat Magician
- Maou-sama, Retry!

(I initially thought If It's for My Daughter, I'd Even Defeat a Demon Lord was a fifth one, but apparently it's just "normal" fantasy.)

We've also got a "trapped in a deadly videogame" entry with The Ones Within (aka Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchuu]).


Meanwhile, on the "maybe a troubled production" front, there's Try Knights, which still doesn't have an official premiere date at this stage. That it comes from zombie studio Gonzo doesn't inspire too much confidence either...

Oh there's more. Cop Craft is supposed to be this season, should be second week of July. I'm definitely catching this one and hoping it scratches the fantasy police procedural itch left behind when Occult Civil Servants ended its run. It's also an uncommon instance of a reverse isekai too.

====

Demon Lord Retry
is fun as hell, in a way that our isekai protagonist is intentionally designed to not match the setting he ends up in. There will be shenanigans similar to How Not To Summon a Demon Lord.

Very much the season of Isekai. I'm looking forward to three of these, and will probably watch the fourth (Isekai Mom) just to watch the trainwreck that the show is likely to be.

(I initially thought If It's for My Daughter, I'd Even Defeat a Demon Lord was a fifth one, but apparently it's just "normal" fantasy.)
Yup. Not even any levels or stats or anything, IIRC.

We've also got a "trapped in a deadly videogame" entry with The Ones Within (aka Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchuu]).
If this is the same series I'm thinking of, I read a bit of the Manga a while back, and it's not quite a video game, kinda sorta? It was unclear exactly where they were, and there were some semi-magical or mystical shenanigans going on, but it was more of a Reality TV Game Show thing. Basically, capture a bunch of Twitch/YouTube game streamers, and then force them to play games. I'm not even sure how deadly it actually is.
