Tokyo Ghoul is currently my favorite anime this season, for the very simple fact that it’s been some time since I watched something like this. I love gore type of anime, okay, not the very bloody ones but since I have a track record of favs like Blood+, Ga-Rei Zero, Kara no Kyoukai, Shingeki no Kyojin, Hellsing…you get the drift. I love these type of supernatural genre, even more if it’s vampire related and dark plot.
Not to mention, the opening track for this anime is great and fitting. It’s unravel by TK from Ling Tosite Sigure.
Terror in Resonance/Zankyou no Terror takes second spot in my current list. The first episode was just out last weekend but enough to steal the spotlight from the rest, aside from Tokyo Ghoul. It’s about two teenage boys plotting a terrorist attack on city of Tokyo and somehow got their female classmate, involved as well. What’s more intriguing is not about the current plot really but the past. The boys’ past. I want to know what made them decide to launch a terror attack.
ALDNOAH ZERO lands in the 3rd spot. The director and original creator has worked on Fate/Zero before and you guessed it, composer Hiroyuki Sawano is also working on the the soundtrack. Fate/Zero is one of my favs and I absolutely love the music so I have high expectation for this. However it’s more a mecha anime than supernatural.
It’s focused on the battle between human on Earth and the Martians. Here’s the catch, the Martians were actually humans who had migrated to Mars and established Vers Empire themselves, separating themselves and the advanced technology from their human counterparts on Earth.
I have to say, this season actually showcased quite a lot of promising anime. Last season was a bit of a letdown and I followed only 2. But I find myself watching up to 5-6 this season. Hence, besides the Top 3 I’ve mentioned above, here are the others I enjoy for now.
Akame ga Kill!
Ao Haru Ride
The premier got me confused in the first 3 mins because I thought I was watching Ga-Rei Zero when I saw Yomi and Kagura!!! I miss that show so much. Apparently, it’s just a cameo appearance because the author of the series is the same as Ga-Rei.
Haha that Pocky sticks!
I seriously won’t mind a special episode or some sort for Ga-Rei Zero, where everybody is still alive T_T
