Project #242.5: Fall Anime 2017 First Impressions

Hey everyone, Nitsuj here and welcome to the side blog the blogs between the blogs. Well fall is starting to set in, school is starting back up for a lot of us, and with fall comes new anime which means it’s time for first impressions. For those of you new to first impressions, this is where I take a look at the anime set to come out in the next season. Now, being that these are first impressions that means that I’ve done no research on the anime, I know little or nothing about it, and it’s just me reading the overview of the anime and asking myself: would this be an anime I would watch? If somebody were to come up to me and tell me the overview of this particular anime and I had to decide if I was going to watch it or not what would I choose? Before we get to the fall anime I’ll give my quick thoughts on the summer anime. It’s okay. There weren’t major hits like in the previous seasons but the animes that I’m currently watching are pretty good. If I had to name my three favorite anime this summer it would be Kakegurui, Made in Abyss, and Princess Principal. An honorable mention also goes to Classroom of the Elite. Now with that said, let’s take a look at what’s going down this fall.

List here:

3-gatsu no Lion 2

First up is the second season of this anime that I didn’t watch and know nothing about. Not watching.


Focuses on a group of students who start an anime research club at school and talk about anime while dealing with the student council who keep trying to disband them. Not watching.

Black Clover

Next up is Black Clover one of Shonen Jump’s new Big 3. After being out for a few years now the series will finally get an anime adaption and I’m looking forward to it. Watching it.

Blend S

A girl gets a job at a café where the waitresses are given certain attributes (i.e tsundere, little sister) to embody when serving customers. The main character is asked to be an extreme sadist so she has to learn how to be a sadist. Not watching.

Boku no Kanojo ga Majime Sugiru Shojo Bitch na Ken

A boy takes the leap of faith and confesses to the girl he likes. To his surprise she accepts his confession and the two start dating. The only problem is the girl takes dating seriously and doesn’t understand it. Because of this she keeps suggesting sexual activities. Watching it.

Cardfight!! Vanguard G: Z

The fifth season of Cardfight. Not watching.

ClassicaLoid 2

Speaking of new seasons we have the return of ClassicaLoid. I tried watching this but couldn’t get into it. Not watching.

Code:Realize – Sousei no Himegimi

This anime sounds cool, it centers around a girl who has poisonous skin and kills anything she touches. She lives out her life in isolation until London’s royal guards come to take her away but she gets saved by the original Lupin. Now the two are on a journey to find her father who holds the answers to her mysterious condition. I’m watching this, this sounds awesome.

Dia Horizon

A multimedia project being done by Square Enix. I’ll check it out and see where it goes.

Dies irae

Here’s another interesting anime. In 1945 the Soviet Union conquered Berlin so Nazi soldiers conducted a ritual to bring back the LDO, supermen who could bring about the destruction of the world. It’s now present day Japan and in a city where violence runs rampant a boy keeps having a reoccurring dream of death and men in black cloaks chasing after him. Watching it.

Dynamic Chord

A musical anime which follows the life of bands under a record label. Not watching.

Gintama (Shinsaku)

It’s the fifth season of Gintama. If you like Gintama have fun watching this, I never really got into the series so I’ll be skipping it.

Himouto! Umaru-chan R

Here’s another season I didn’t really get into. Himouto is back.

Hoozuki no Reitetsu 2

A second season of the dark comedy. Me and Yin-Yang will definitely be watching this.

Houseki no Kuni

In the distant future these beings known as Housekis are being targeted by moon dwellers. These Housekis fight to protect themselves from the moon dwellers and each one has been assigned a role that best uses their skills accept for one who gets asked to edit a natural history magazine. I’m intrigued by this, I’ll watch the first 3 episodes and see where it goes.

Imouto sae Ireba Ii.

The anime follows a novelist who is a modern day Pygmalion and longs to create the perfect little sister. He’s surrounded by all sorts of unique individuals such as another writer who loves him, big-sister classmate, best friend who is also a novelist, and his little brother who has a secret. I think I know what the payoff will be but I’ll check this anime out anyway.

Infini-T Force

A full 3DCG anime in order to celebrate the 55th anniversary of Tatsunoko Productions. Not watching.


This anime comes from MAPPA who have been on a roll this year in terms of quality anime and this series looks to continue that trend. It focuses on an old man who despite being good-hearted is disrespected by society as well as his family. He later finds out he has cancer and just when his day can’t get any worse, a blinding light strikes him and he wakes unscathed but notices that something is different. Sounds promising. Watching it.

Just Because!

As a group of third years prepare for graduation a transfer student enters their lives and changes it forever. Not interested.

Juuni Taisen

12 people with the names of the 12 Chinese zodiac members are forced to battle each other where the winner will get one wish granted. A fighting anime huh? This looks like some good action ready to happen. I’ll watch it along with Shizuku.

Kekkai Sensen & Beyond

The second season of Kekkai Sensen. After being pushed back, will we finally get to see the second season? I hope so. Shizuku keeps talking about it and I’m interested in watching the series as well.

Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World – the Animated Series

It’s the return of Kino’s Journey. I’m shocked. I never thought they were going to make a second season. Is it possible that the people at Lerche read my blog about animes that deserve a second season? Did I have a hand in the revival of Kino’s Journey? Man, my blogs reach more people I thought. Definitely watching this.

Konohana Kitan

Focuses on a bunch of fox spirits who work at a hot spring hotel. I won’t watch it but Yume will since it has fox girls in it.

Kujira no Kora wa Sajou ni Utau

A boy meets a girl who will change his destiny. I’m curious. I’ll give it the 3 episode rule and see where it goes.

Love Live! Sunshine!! 2

Second season of Sunshine. Not watching it, never got into the Love Live series. After watching the first season I quickly lost interest in the series.

Mahoutsukai no Yome

This has been one of the most anticipated animes of the year. The anime focuses on a girl who has lived a miserable life filled with abuse and neglect. One day she gets bought by a man with the face of a beast who has strange powers and her life changes forever. Watching it.

Net-juu no Susume

A 30 year old NEET woman plays a net game where she poses as a man meets a dreamy girl named Lily who shows her the ropes. Back in the real world she comes across a dreamy guy who is part of this elite company. I’ll give it to Isis and see what she does with it.

Osake wa Fuufu ni Natte Kara

Follows the story of a woman who likes to drink the cocktails of her husband (I’m sure that’s not the only thing she likes to drink). Not watching.


Second season. Not watching.

Ousama Game The Animation

For my horror fans out there we have this anime where the students receive messages on their cellphones that they have to do or they’ll be punished with death. Watching it.

Robomasters The Animated Series

Based off the world’s biggest robotics competition for students. I might watch it.

Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru

This sounds promising. The series focuses on two bounty hunters who fight dragons and use magic with a little hint of science added into the mix. I’m sure I’ll like it along with Chibi Isis.

Sengoku Night Blood

Based off a video game which focuses on warlords from the Sengoku period. I’m a little bit hesitant to watch this anime because animes based off of games I haven’t played usually lose me. But I do love different spins on Japanese history so I’ll watch it.

Shokugeki no Souma: San no Sara

Third season of Food Wars. Foodgasms for everyone! Watching it.

Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou

It’s the end of the world and only two girls survive. We follow the story of these two girls as they wonder the bleak and empty world with the only thing keeping them sane is each other. Seras will enjoy this.

The Idolm@ster SideM

Based off the Idolm@ster SideM app which focuses on male characters instead of female characters. The AI girls will enjoy this.

MAPPA is at it again with their second anime for the fall which looks like it’ll be a hit as well.

Sword, throws himself into the shadows to fight against this threat having only one clue to this whole conspiracy, El Dorado.
