Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches Season 2 Release Date

Is it just me or the world will be weird if everything on your life will depend on kisses. YES, kisses. This is what this anime’s unique feature is.

Ryū Yamada is known as a delinquent in his high school; he has been bored of classes after one year of attending school. The story is about a delinquent high school student, Ryuu Yamada, who studies at a private school. One day, while going up the stairs, he slips and accidentally falls down. And to make it worse, he fell down over the class' top student, Urara Shiraishi, and they both ended up unconscious. Waking up from his sleep, he finds himself in bed inside the school's infirmary... ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT HE IS INSIDE SHIRAISHI'S BODY! Unravelling the truths behind this phenomenon, they learned that they could switch bodies anytime with a kiss. Yamada and Shiraishi now lives their once boring life and starts to enjoy school more.

Brought to you by Miki Yoshikawa, assistant of the mangaka famous for his work "Fairy Tail", is a romantic-comedy, gender-bender that you might not want to miss.

Yamada-kun and the SevenWitches.... The story plot is really sticking to the manga title well. It almost feels like a spoiler actually. The story and plot is good with nice suspense and twists but occasionally is too straightforward.

Oh there's one more thing you should be mentally prepared before you read this manga. Do NOT be too shocked at a few same-sex kisses. Cos those kinda put me off a bit.

I could say more, but that would be foolish of me. This is a great manga that I think people should see for themselves. High ratings! And hopes are high there will be a season 2!

My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Season 3 Release Date

In its previous season, this romantic comedy revolves around an antisocial high school student named Hikigaya Hachiman with a distorted view on life and no friends or girlfriend. When he sees his classmates talking excitedly about living their adolescent lives, he thought they were liars. When he is asked about his future dreams, he responds, "Not working." A teacher gets Hachiman to join the "Volunteer Service" club, which happens to have the school's prettiest girl, Yukinoshita Yukino. OTP OTP OTP! That’s what I thought at first. They’re so compatibleee.

In another season, what’s exactly going to happen when Hachiman Hikigaya, an isolated high school student with no friends, no interest in making any and a belief that everyone else's supposedly great high school experiences are either delusions or outright lies, is coerced by a well-meaning faculty member into joining the one member "Services Club" run by Yukino Yukinoshita, who's smart, attractive and generally considers everyone in her school to be her complete inferior?

Yahari Ore isn't the first anime to tackle the anti-social protagonist, but it certainly captures it perfectly with its characters and deadpan writing. Like others have said before, you may go into this expecting a typical rom-com but will instead come out of it lashed by the harsh views of our characters. This however, is why this anime stands out from so many in the genre. It's charming, funny and yet bluntly realistic. Far too often rom-coms get stuck in the fairy tale realm of romance stories, or get too wrapped up in the emotional drama/turmoil that can be present in youthful romance. Those elements are fine. But what about the bitter, and rejected? Or those that aren't allowed to fit in, or who choose not to fit in.

Not everyone of course has had this experience, but it's certainly something that people experience. And so this is what Yahari Ore does best, it gives us a perspective of those in school who have been rejected so much, they decide to play by their own rules, and that of course is excluding everyone else from the game. Afterall, it's much easier to get on by when you only have yourself to rely on.

Yahari Ore is an example of why comedy is such a great asset to art. Comedy allows us to look at aspects of life that aren't always good and allows us to examine the darker aspect of our humanity, and laugh while also getting a better understanding of it. Yes, this is a comedy that is for the most part, snarky, sarcastic and deadpan. But it's also a very interesting perspective on how we treat other people, and how those that don't fit in, (or those that choose not to play the game and try to fit in), deal with a world that heavily relies on being social.

                A third season? Why, not? There are still tons of materials to cover for a season 3, also the original light novel is still on going, so hopes are high for a third season. Not a problem in my opinion for My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU.

Uta no Prince-sama Season 4 Release Date

Ever wonder how life will be easy if dating games would be on real life? I’m pretty sure it will go to chaos. But this anime pretty much uses its origin to be hit in the big screen!

Composer Noriyasu Agematsu of the music group Elements Garden confirmed that a third anime season based on Broccoli's Uta no Prince Sama female-oriented dating simulation games. In the slapstick romantic comedy, the female protagonist goes to a school for the performing arts with boys who are budding idols.

The original Uta no Prince-sama - Maji Love 1000% anime aired in Japan in July 2011, and ended in the September of that year. With those amazing sales which were I think twice the sales of the first season, I would have been surprised if they HADN'T announced this.

I wonder what the staff of this anime will prepare for us on if ever it will have its fourth season. But I’m pretty sure it’ll go well. How about you?

Also, out of curiosity, does the anime follow a certain route from the game? Tokiya seems fo be the most popular character among Japanese gamers. LOL.

Triage X Season 2 Release Date

Tired? Stressed? You will feel better sitting on the couch watching fanservice (and heroic acts too. LMAO). Storylines play no important role in this world where sexual attraction and pleasure conquers all. This anime both include a harem and ecchi.

Triage X is not an ordinary anime. Especially because the group, also consists of girls. All of them suffered in a rough past. Though they are not part of the government nor the police, they kill people who they deem to be corrupt and harming society.

Mochizuki General Hospital boasts some of the most well-trained (and well-endowed) nurses in town. But though these ladies spend much of their day battling sickness, their after-hours are spent fighting a very different sort of disease... Under the leadership of the hospital chairman, a handful of staff members and local teenagers form a group of mercenary assassins, targeting the "cancers" of society and excising those individuals before their wickedness spreads.

Triage X’ set its sight in a city filled with corruption and hidden in the shadows, lays a group of dark knights sworn to purge the city of this disease. Aside from the killing, it does not hurt to have woman with lustful bodies taking over the screen (fanservice style) regardless of their individual importance. Torture is used as an element to add another level of pleasure in the already sweet gratification. That alone is enough to divert a person’s attention away from the great songs and character development in the series.

Its elements are what otakus are waiting for. Hopes are high that there will be second season for this awesome anime!

Knights of Sidonia Season 3 Release Date

The story of this anime is set in the waaaaay ago. In 3394, a thousand years after humans flee from Earth, after it was destroyed by shapeshifting gigantic alien monsters called Gauna, aboard massive spaceships created from the remains of the planet. One such ship is the "Sidonia", which has developed its own human culture closely based on that of Japan, where human cloning, asexual reproduction, and human genetic engineering, such as granting human’s photosynthesis, are done. It is also revealed that the top echelons of this society have secretly been granted immortality. With a population of over 500,000 people, Sidonia is possibly the last human settlement remaining as the fates of the other ships are unknown. How cool is that?

Little is known about the true nature of the Gauna or their motivation for attacking humanity. Each Gauna has a near invulnerable core protected by a huge mass of material known as the "placenta" (胞衣 ena?), most commonly called "Ena". Once the placenta is shed away and the core is destroyed, the Gauna's body disintegrates.

Sidonia is defended by large mechanized weapons called Gardes whose weaponry and mobility is powered by "Heigus particles", armed with a high output cannon for long range assaults and a special spear known as "Kabizashi" for close combat. The tip of the kabizashi is made of an elusive material which has the unique property of being able to destroy a Gauna's core. Later the Guardians are also equipped with firearms whose ammo have the same material of the Kabizashi after a means to artificially mass-produce it is discovered. Most people in the surviving human population are screened and drafted as Guardian pilots at a young age, if they are shown to be capable of piloting them.

For a full-time otaku like me, this is something to be looked forward upon. Its coolness will surely be a hit of it in the anime big screen. I am hoping there will be a third season for this!
