We’re still alive and kickin’, but busy as hell. So little me decided to make a post. I know I have missed out both August and September but I didn’t have any time for this. So yeah, let’s start with October and hope that I’ll continue this series later as well!

For October I didn’t pick too much because I didn’t have much that was entertaining enough. You may see two series on this picture but there are actually three series that are actually featured! Let’s just say I didn’t want to ruin the picture since I already had an idea for one.

Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru

Let’s start with Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru. If you don’t know what Touken Ranbu is – it’s a japanese browser game powered by DMM + Nitroplus  who also created the famous browser game Kantai Collection. The game (along with the animated adaption ) is about humanized swords (they’re all men) who were brought into the future to fight against an evil force. The anime tells the story about these swords living their daily life at a certain citadel with their Saniwa (master).

With four episodes, the series is still very fresh but has a lot of popularity among the TouRabu-fanbase respectively. Episodes might be aired every Sunday, and from what I’ve heard, it is available on Crunchyroll but apparently not available for the german audience (too bad).

Yuri!!! on Ice

You said that ice figure skating is boring? Maybe this anime will change your mind. Yuri!!! on ice was the most recognizable one for the Autumn season of this year and admittedly it is not ‘utter’ crap like some people thought it would be. Just as a ‘spots anime’ it contains so much more than the simple ‘figure skating sports’. The characters are based off professional figure skaters and so are their choreographies.

Yuri!!! on Ice is about the figure skater Katsuki Yuuri who had lost the Grand Prix and with that the hope to go ice skating ever again. But then he meets Victor Nikiforov, the russian champion of the Grand Prix and gets coached by him after Yuuri has been filmed copying a choreography of Victor.

The story has much more but I won’t go into detail. Watch the series yourself if you’re interested. It has four episodes so far and can be watched on Crunchyroll via Simulcast.

Haikyuu!!: Karasuno Koukou VS Shiratorizawa Gakuen Koukou

We’re going to end this post with a third series who is really popular. Here we have the third season of Haiykuu!!, a volleyball anime. If you haven’t watched the two last seasons, you better catch up before watching this. Haikyuu!! tells the story about Hinata Shouyou, a volleyball player who might get judged by his short appearance but is mostly recognized by his speed and the height of his jumps. He attends Karasuno High School, the School in which his role model, known as the ‘Small Giant’ used to go and wants to become the Ace of their volleyball team.

The third season is about their match against Shiratorizawa Academy– winning this match makes their possibility higher to attend the nationals. However, Shirazorizawa is known to be a powerhouse that’s actually hard to beat. Okay, I don’t want to tell you more about this. Haikyuu!! in general has over 50 episodes, 25 per season while the third has four episodes and still airing. The series has so much more though, so if you want to take your time and watch it, go for everything you may need. Haikyuu!! has a stage play as well as two OVAs.

That’s much about it. There’s way more to be excited about in the Fall Season, but we will take a better look at it probably in November. For now, I say we’ll see each other until the next post!
