The summer has left us for the fall, the trees are losing their leaves, the days are getting colder and colder with time, and a strange, relaxing feeling of being on the last part of the year invades the surroundings — but we don’t care about that! What we care about is the new Anime Season!

Now to measure the anticipation for each series, in our search for the best and most scientifically-approved method to measure the excitement of the people, we found in an ancient AniTAY warehouse the fabled “Dec-O-Meter: The Law Machine”! Everything that it says is law! So therefore, we must follow its suggestions!

Check out our sequel guide from last season

With nothing more to say, let’s go to the series at hand!

The Law Machine Says: As a lawyer-in-training, I have time for food. Less time for porn. I don’t exactly have time for food porn. So despite this being a mostly indecent decent series, I’m going to give this one a miss. Unless I’m hungry. 2/10

Kekkai Sensen & Beyond

Preview Author: ShadowHaken

Type: Sequel

Studio: Bones

Genre(s): Action, Vampires, Fantasy

About the Series: One day the city of New York gets trapped in an interdimensional incident, where beings with supernatural abilities suddenly appear.The agency known as Libra was then created, in charge of keeping the peace between the humans and the strange supernatural beings. Some time later, Leonardo Watch, a guy who enjoys taking photos, receives the “All-Seeing Eyes of the Gods” in exchange for his sister’s sight. In search of answers, Leonardo goes to former New York, now known as Hellsalem´s Lot, formerly known as New York, and inadvertently joins Libra. These are his misadventures inside the organization, chronicling the various weird problems they face.

The Law Machine Says: Deciding cassation questions regarding the interpretation of law in case law studies would probably be much easier if I had an All-Seeing Eye of God. To add to that, Kekkai Sensen was one of the more memorable episodic series I’ve seen, and I honestly enjoyed every episode. There’s a flexibility to the premise that keeps things fresh. I think Rie Matsumoto’s direction and Kazunao Furuya’s script made the anime surpass the source material, and so their absence is tempering my expectations a bit, but hopefully the show will recapture that same zaniness paired with characters you could emotionally invest in. 8/10

Time to Catch Up: ~5 hours

What You Need to Watch: Kekkai Sensen (12 episodes)

Once it’s just her and her older brother, Umaru sheds all vestiges of her public self, morphing into a lazy, loud-mouthed, gluttonous otaku. Day in and day out, she’ll make her brother’s life hell — but when it comes right down to it, they are still family.

The Law Machine Says: The first season annoyed me, because the jokes were one-note (if you think I’m running this lawyer joke into the ground, then wait until you see Himouto). Doubt that’s going to change. 1/10

The three are determined to fight Rei’s loneliness with familial hospitality, and as such not only can we follow his path as a shogi player, but more importantly we witness his development as a person.

The Law Machine Says: Depending on the person, this is either a stellar portrayal of depression or Emotional Manipulation: The Anime. Lawyer-Dec can’t afford to be overly swayed at the moment, but it’s a Chica Umino series, so yeah, I’ll probably watch this and then cry myself to sleep covered by the mountain of reading I have to do. 6/10

Over their journey, they meet and interact with all manner of people, witnessing both the best and worst of humanity in the process.

About the Series: It’s back, and sure to be packed to the gills with outrageous laughs, dramatic battles and tons of references you only half-understand! Gintama is a popular long-running comedy series focused on a trio of misfits and their friends as they rollick through late 1800s Japan — but after it’s been invaded and conquered by aliens! The series has slowly gotten more and more serious as it’s gone along, but this season will rewind the clock, going back to adapt comedy chapters from the manga that were previously skipped. We’ll have to wait a little longer for the show’s epic conclusion, but this should be plenty of fun in the meantime.

The Law Machine Says: This is apparently the funniest anime on MAL. But I wasn’t exactly thrilled about having 100 pages of Constitutional Law pre-lecture reading material last week, and similarly, I’m not doing 328 episodes of pre-watching. 1/10 [Editor’s Note: hmph]

Preview Author: Gugsy

Type: Sequel

Studio: Pierrot

Genre(s): Comedy, Parody

About the Series: Back in the 1960’s, the Osomatsu sextuplets were all the rage in TV! And to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the birth of their creator, they returned to the small screen last year… but they worry about how their old gags will translate to the present day and whether they will be popular. Flash forward from the black-and-white era to color, and the sextuplets have devolved into some of the laziest, narcissistic groups of brothers ever. They strive to become popular once again, but inevitably nothing will go right for them, often through their own incompetence and jealousy. From some of the creators of the Gintama anime, these sextuplets will surely get into more trouble this season!

The original Yuuki Yuuna series is getting both a prequel and a sequel this season, each 6 episodes long.

The Law Machine Says (for the sequel): I’m not exactly sure how they’re going to continue this, but Yuuki Yuuna is one of the more interesting recent magical-girl subversions, so I’ll give it a chance. It’s only six episodes anyway, so I can get back to my coursework. 5/10

The Law Machine Says (for the prequel):Can I just copy-paste my response from earlier? 5/10. No, wait, because we’re now cutting cours in half for different plots, I ought to double my score to compensate: 10/10. No wait, that’s just 1, so 100/10 = 10 = 20/2 That’s right, a lawyer with rudimentary fractions jokes. It’s the sort of twist Yuki Yuuna would be proud of.

ClassicaLoid Season 2

Advertisement

Preview Author: Grex

Type: Sequel

Studio: Sunrise

Genre(s): Music, Comedy

About the Series: ClassicaLoid is an absurdist comedy about classical music composers who have been resurrected into the modern age. Naturally, since this is anime, most of these composers are extremely exaggerated personalities with only the barest of connection to their actual historical selves, but taken as simply another comedy series, it’s surprisingly entertaining. The wacky and hyperactive style, as well as lack of plot progression, may not be everybody’s cup of tea, but if you’re looking for an excuse to have some good dumb laughs, it might be worth a look.

The Law Machine Says: I did not enjoy the minimal amount of classical music that appeared in Season 1, and I doubt that will change. Cool concept, underwhelming execution. 0/10 [Editor’s Note: hmph again]

Time to Catch Up: ~10 hours

Fate/stay night: Heaven’s Feel - Presage Flower

Preview Author: RockmanDash12

Type: Sequel/Alternate Version

Studio: ufotable

Genre(s): Action, Magic, Fantasy, Supernatural, Shounen

About the Series: Fate/stay night: Heaven’s Feel - Presage Flower is a continuation of the Fate/stay night adaptations by ufotable: it is a movie adaptation of the Visual Novel route Heaven’s Feel, with Presage Flower in particular being the first part of a movie trilogy.
Fate/stay night follows Emiya Shirou as he is dragged into a fight-to-the-death tournament called The Fifth Holy Grail War, where people known as Masters fight with heroes throughout history, known as Servants, for a chance to get the wish-granting Holy Grail. In Heaven’s Feel-Presage Flower however, this all just serves as a backdrop to a more personal story, as Heaven’s Feel has always been a significant subversion in comparison to the rest of Fate/stay night, and we should see some of that come to play near the end of Presage flower. Fate/stay night as a whole is a story about ideals and heroism, what it truly means to be a hero... but unlike the other routes, Heaven’s Feel challenges the core concept of hero and the realities of it. Fans of Zero will be right at home, and everyone else will be here for a ride.

Advertisement

The Law Machine Says: There has never been a great F/S N adaptation. Do you want to know why? Because it is not actually a good story, the characters are not that interesting, and no doubt the exposition scenes will be just as nauseatingly boring as they were in the most recent utofable attempt. Still, this is probably the most dramatic of the routes, so maybe that will improve things. And frankly, in any sane universe, Sakura would probably be entitled to damages, and the State would bring criminal charges. Unfortunately, this is not a sane universe. 3/10

Time to Catch Up: ~31 hours

What You Need to Watch*: Fate/stay night (2006) (24 Episodes), Fate/Zero (26 episodes), Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works (TV) (26 Episodes)

Notes:

-The Fate series order to watch is pretty intimidating for newcomers, so I’d check out Reddit’s Fate FAQ, or other articles like Grex’s How to Watch Fate article to figure out where to start.

- There are many other Fate works and spinoffs that you can watch as well, but they are not directly relevant to Heaven’s Feel.
