Spanning back to the 16th of September, it’s a week where one can see there is much upcoming, a tsunami of new series – yet when it comes down to what actually looks worthwhile, there’s only a few raindrops.
Seven Day Summary:
Operation Vivid Red unfortunately isn’t looking too vivid – ironically however, another upcoming series, Date A Live, looks vivid up until one actually watches the PV, a depressing sight which seems to place the series in the league of generic harem. And speaking of tired love stories – Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo has gained another CM, just in case anyone was curious about the heroine’s absence of pantsu, the video provides further reiteration.
Surprisingly, the heavy hitter of harem, To Love-Ru Darkness, is promising just a little more than pantsu.
Yet even with more lackluster media, the world still has some shining hope – another Fate/Zero Blu-ray box CM has been released, and the series is also giving the opportunity for otaku of the motherland to sell their soul with a holy grail backed line of credit. Powering forward, God Eater 2 is coming soon – confirming a 2013 debut, and also showing off its early achieved perfection. The PV for Jormungand’s second season has been released – a mild shift from the first season, although it looks fine overall.
Now for a complete contrast, Hayate no Gotoku’s third season looks outright disastrous.

There wasn’t much story to begin with. I was suprised when it got greenlit for an adaptation with only 20+ chapters of manga to work with, but at least they took some bold risks in terms of visuals and presentation unlike a certain art online series *cough cough*. I mean, you would think that with a name like “sword” art online, they’d take liberties with actual sword designs. They should have went apeshit with their swords, really God Eater Burst the thing up.
