The Fall 2013 Anime Preview Guide

by The Anime News Network Editorial Team, Oct 8th 2013


Welcome to Anime News Network's Fall 2013 Preview Guide! By now you know the drill: our team of critics write up their impressions instantly and they get posted as they go along. Each critic will cover as many shows as they can handle, resulting in alternate takes on most every show (sometimes on more than one episode!). Check back a couple of times every day during the guide and you're likely to see something new!

This is an ongoing guide. Throughout the next week or two we'll be updating as often as possible with new perspectives on new episodes from each of our team of critics. New reviews will be posted as soon as they're written.

Please remember that this is a preview guide. It is designed to give you a taste of the first episode (or the first few episodes) of a show with a preliminary opinion and a few thoughts on whether or not the show has potential. These are not intended to be blanket judgments of these series as a whole. All reviews use the same ratings scale: 1-5, with 1 being the lowest. Shows that are available streaming online will be indicated as such with links.

Click on the critic's name to check out their episode reviews! The newest reviews will always appear at the TOP of each critic's page, so if you're wondering what's new, just click the critic's name and their latest work will pop right up. Scroll down to see earlier reviews. The newest title in each critic's page will also be bolded for your convenience. We have a total of six writers contributing this time; each writer will be added as their first submissions arrive.

For a rundown of all the new shows to expect this season, check out our list here.
