Spring Anime Season 2013   Leave a comment

Well it appears that the list for the Winter Season is out. This season seems to be composed of some sequels and the rest being new series from manga’s or light novels. It seems that I’ll be watching a lot of shows but out of the many shows I’m watching I’ll blog between 2-4 shows from the Winter Season. I will mention a few anime that are carrying on from the Winter Season are Chihayafuru 2. Anyway if you want to get the entire Winter listing please go to MOON PHASE alternatively if you want the specific airtimes check out synobi’s calendar (though be warned its in Japanese), finally if you want to know who is fansubbing which anime go to Fansub Wiki’s Page. I will now tell you a few of the anime’s on the Autumn/Fall Season I will omit the kids shows but they’ll be in the table I just won’t give any information besides that, I will also mention the long running shows that have been airing for a while minus One Piece.

Quick side note: In japan the time is given in 24-hour, relative time format which technically means the times are extended to show which day they primarily belong too. So for example, Thursday morning at 2:00am would become Wednesday 26:00 to show that the episode aired late Wednesday night. Before I forget I’m from the United Kingdom so I write the date differently from Americans and Japanese i.e. date, month, year 02/01/2011. Additionally the clocks will be moved forward so now the time difference between the U.K. and Japan is 8 hours instead of 9 hours.

He also learns that Kotori is the captain of the airship Ratatoskr and recruits him to make use of his mysterious ability to seal the Spirits’ powers and stop them from being a threat to mankind.

Several hundred years ago humans were nearly exterminated by giants. Giants are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of giants. Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a giant in over 100 years. Teenage boy Elen and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a super giant that appears out of thin air. As the smaller giants flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Elen vows that he will murder every single giant and take revenge for all of mankind.

Waking from his artificially induced hibernation, Redo realizes that he has arrived on Earth, the planet on the lost frontier. On this planet that was completely flooded by the seas, people live in fleets of giant ships, salvaging relics from the seas’ depths in order to survive. Redo arrives on one of the fleets called Gargantia. With no knowledge of the planet’s history or culture, he is forced to live alongside Amy, a 15-year-old girl who serves as a messenger aboard the Gargantia fleet. To Redo, who has lived a life where he knows nothing but fighting, these days of peace continue to surprise him.
