Anime of Tomorrow

Anime of the Week (7/15 – 7/21)

Anime of the Week – Sword Art Online
Kazuto must confront a developing political scene among the other gamers trapped in Sword Art Online that is showing a growing animosity towards beta testers like him.                                
July 15 SAO Ep. 2 It seems that in order to protect himself and other beta testers the newbies despise, Kirito is going to role play the anti-hero.
Kokoro Connect Ep. 2 This show has been fairly dry about such a novel concept as a group of friends randomly switching minds and bodies.
Dog Days 2 Ep. 2 A powerful theme is growing—the friend who is overshadowed by bigger personalities, yet longs to be a main character, too.
July 17 Koichoco Ep. 2 This series is finding itself to be a fun, but serious romance with the perfect amount of comedy to give it some personality.
Total Eclipse Ep. 3 This series doesn’t escape the tired, old theme of humanity’s inability to get along even in the face of extinction.
Rinne no Lagrange 2 Ep. 1 Initial impression – the same great enthusiasm
Rinne 2 Ep. 2 I like seeing that this anime’s characters are willing to talk through their problems rather than just endlessly butt heads.
Hakuouki Reimeiroku Ep. 1 Initial impression – your average samurai
July 18 Hyouka Ep. 13 Ever since the second half started this series has had a hard time focusing. Is it a mystery or a romance and to what degree?
Binbougami ga! Ep. 1 Initial impression – weird and scatterbrained (3/10)
Oda Nobuna no Yabou Ep. 1 Initial impression – been there, done that, moving on (3/10)
Hagure Yuusha no Estetica Ep. 1 Initial impression – a good idea that’s not on a solid foundation
July 19 Natsuyuki Rendezvous Ep. 1 Initial impression – a lot of interesting talk
Hagure Yuusha Ep. 2 This show has crossed some lines that shouldn’t be crossed, but it presents itself so well I grudgingly accept it.
Joshiraku Ep. 1 Initial impression – fourth wall…what fourth wall? (4/10)
Campione Ep. 2 I can’t tell to what degree this series wants to be a serious action/fantasy and how much it wants to be a pitiful harem.
Ebiten: Kouritsu Ebisugawa Koukou Tenmonbu Ep. 1 Initial impression – a random lack of focus (3/10)
July 20 Tari Tari Ep. 3 Konatsu has some pretty silly logic, but at least she’s collecting allies who will help her stand up to the vice principal.
Chouyaku Hyakuninisshu: Uta Koi Ep. 1 Initial impression – not sure what I just watched, but it was good
July 21 Accel World Ep. 15 As if I needed another reason to hate Nomi… I like that Haruyuki has a friendly rapport with his other rivals.
