Hello once again readers. Gil is here to talk about some more anime. Back in the fall, I wrote an article about the upcoming anime that I was most anticipating for the fall of 2013. Some of it was great and some didn’t live up to my expectations. But its almost time for the Spring anime season to begin and I’m here to give you my top anticipated anime of Spring 2014.
- Mahōka Kōkō no Rettōsei (The irregular at magic high school)
An anime adaptation of Tsutomu Satou‘s Mahōka Kōkō no Rettōsei.
The story takes place in a world in which magic is not a fairy tale, but has existed for nearly one hundred years. In the spring, the Private Magic University Affiliated High School (Magic High School for short) is welcoming its new students, and names the top student with the best grades at the time of their arrival the Bloom (read as “garland” in Japanese), and the student called the Weed is the Bloom’s replacement.
Siblings Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba are designated as the Weed and Bloom, respectively. Miyuki is given the title of Bloom due to her amazing grades, while Tatsuya is given the title of Weed due to his poor practical magic scores. Tatsuya, the young man who always has a farsighted expression, and Miyuki, the young woman who feels far more for her brother than sibling love. Since the day the two entered the gates of the elite school, the establishment’s peaceful days have become chaotic.
- Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii (Even So, the World is Beautiful)
Nike, the fourth princess of the Rain Dukedom and one who holds the power to call forth the rain, travels to the Sun Kingdom to marry Sun King Livius for her country, despite her own reluctance. She soon discovers that the King, who conquered the world in only three years after his ascendance to the throne, is still a child. Furthermore, for trivial reasons, he has demanded that Nike call forth the rain.
- Mekaku City Actors
Shintaro Kisaragi, a HikiNEET who shut himself inside his room for 2 years, had been living his life normally until he met a cyber girl named Ene, who appeared in his computer screen when someone anonymously sent him a mysterious e-mail one year ago. One day, Ene messes with Shintaro’s PC which causes him to go outside for the first time in two years.
- Blade & Soul
Alka is an assassin for the Clan of the Sword. She’s on a journey to find the woman Jin Valel, who killed her master Hon. Jin is demon-like woman who controls the Energy of Chaos and kills without feeling – not unlike how Alka has learned to kill in her work as an assassin. On her journey, Alka encounters three strange women, each great warriors in their own right, and grapples with her slain master’s wish that she leave the life of an assassin behind.
- Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers
Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers is an upcoming series by Marvel Entertainment and The Walt Disney Company.
The story will focus on the Avengers comprised of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, and Wasp. They will join forces with Spider-Man and a group of teens. The heroes will harness their respective fighting skills and superhuman powers to foil Loki’s plans to conquer the world.
These are 5 upcoming anime series that I plan on checking out and hopefully writing about in the future. Some magic and school, some fantasy, and even a Marvel based anime are coming our way!
Thanks for reading and have a nice day.
