It has began! Already watched Free: Eternal Summer today and it was definitely fun to see the show return this Summer.

I'm hoping this season won't disappoint though. There's definitely some titles out there with a lot of potential.

From what I've seen of the charts that have been floating around the 'net, this season is a fairly promising one. Lots of crap as usual, there always is, but this time there's also a large amount of shows that look interesting. I just hope that the new Urobuchi show holds up.

And so it begins.

Bakumatsu Rock is unfortunately not very well animated, and we'll see where the story goes.

I did like that very authentic pizza margherita, though.

The # of "Free" fans really surprises me.

I'm going to hold off on watching Free until a few episodes are out and I can marathon it with a friend. I am looking forward to it though! I'm still waiting for Glasslip too!

Well it damn well should be that would make a kick ass poster.

I enjoyed the first episode of season two WAY too much lol. I pretty much laughed the whole time and the new ending is super cute. I think towards the end of the episode (including the ending) tells what this season is going to be about: what are they going to do after they graduate?

I can't wait for more episodes!

[EDIT: This post is referring to Free!. It was originally in a separate thread dedicated to that series' preview which has now been melded into this one. - Key]

Weird that FUNi just picked up the second season. Maybe they'll pick up the first season and dub it?

Free! 2 ep 1 was thoroughly enjoyable. It does seem a little packed, but it still manages to go at a decent pace. The ED is adorable.

I really like how happy spoiler[Rin now is though]. Pressures as a spoiler[captain] aside.

Looking forward to Glasslip. According to MAL, it's 13 episodes. I hope a complete story is told, like the last 13 or less PA Works anime, Uchouten Kazoku, and not like RDG.

Barakamon looks like it is going to be a real fun series.

Yesterday, I decided to look at MAL to see the number of eps series that I'm interested in are getting.

Was surprised they had SAO2 at 24eps, but a little disappointed that Ao Haru Ride is at 12. That's only because it makes me think Ao Haru Ride will turn out to have one of those "now read the manga" type of endings. Laughing

Oh, and P4 Golden was also listed at 12eps. Make me think I may need to watch the original anime series in order to get the whole story.

I've no idea if any of those are actually confirmed episode numbers, so I will be looking to see if anything changes.

Free was good, but the show is not my cup of tea, so I'll probably drop it at some point. I did like Rin's personality in this more than season 1.

Also, why did they make Rin a male stripper in the ending? It's funny though.

After a loaded spring season, the only show I really have interest in this season is Terror in Resonance. Ok, is it Terror in Resonance or Terror in Tokyo? What's the official localization for that, because I don't want to keep saying it wrong if I am.

Other than that, I'll watch Tokyo Ghoul maybe, but I'm still not all that interested in the premise. I'm going to watch Hanasaku Iroha and Nagi-Asu before deciding whether I should watch Glasslip. I liked Another, Angel Beats! was ok, but I've heard these other P.A. Works shows can be a little on the over-dramatic side.

The official localization name is commonly set by whomever ends up streaming it. I have seen Zankyo no Terror transliterated a couple of different ways, so I'm just leaving it untranslated on my personal chart until CR or Funi picks it up. (And I will be very surprised if someone doesn't.)

Aside from the SAO sequel, my top-priority title of the season is probably Tokyo ESP, though I am also looking forward to the Fate/kaleid liner sequel. And I'm kind of curious to see what Minarai Diva ends up looking like, given the descriptions I've read about it.

EDIT: It has been pointed out to me that Funi does, indeed, have Terror in Resonance and will be premiering it at AX this weekend. They have yet to specify a regularly-scheduled streaming time, however.
