Fall and Winter are the seasons that I name “Nagi” (the Calm). These two seasons that span from September 23rd to March 20th are times when chills, dark clouds, rains, and coldness can soothe me to my core. And I am very sad to say that Winter is finally over. Spring comes. Winter anime season have also come to an end. Fourteen anime from both winter shows and Fall 2013 left-overs have all ended. Let me do a recap for these beautiful animations that make me smile for these past 6 months.
Fall 2013 left-overs…
Nagi no Asukara. This beautiful and calming anime is the best among Fall 2013 anime (probably tied with Kyoukai no Kanata). The graphics and sceneries are so amazing. On top of it all, the OP and ED themes that are sung by Ray and yanaginagi made this anime perfect!
Kuroko no Basuke (Season 2). Right after Shingeki no Kyojin that aired in Spring and Summer of 2013, Production I.G continued airing another amazing anime adapted from great shounen manga. Even though they didn’t announce a sequel right away like they did in Season 1, I’m quite sure they’re gonna make a third season in the future. For six whole months (twleve, if SnK is also included), my Sundays were full of adrenaline rush. Let’s see what Production I.G will bring this Spring. Bring it on. I’m ready!
Magi: The Kingdom of Magic. The second season of Magi. This season focused mainly on Magnoshtatt, so the amazing characters from season one only appeared very little. I am hoping they are making season 3!
Golden Time. A little bit of romance and slice -of -life is good.
Tokyo Ravens. A CLIFF-HANGER ENDING! I have a feeling that Season 2 is coming. But, I’m not really sure since there are only several volumes (from the light nove) left unadapted. If a second season is happening, it will take a while.
Log Horizon. An MMORPG anime in which a lot of people trapped inside a game, but unlike Sword Art Online, this anime didn’t give a damn about explaining the players’ condition in real life. I mean, come on. Anyway, they announced a second season to be airing this Fall.
from Winter 2014…
Noragami. PLEASE MAKE SEASON 2! This anime is perfect! The best of Winter 2014.
Hamatora. Also with a cliff-hanger ending, but they announced Season 2 at the end of finale. This anime kind of reminds me of Durarara!!
Chuunibyou! Ren. I can’t help but think that this was too “harem”, but… for the past 2 years, it’s been a nice series. Third season is not likely.
Gin no Saji Season 2. From the author of Fullmetal Alchemist, Gin no Saji is one of the best slice of life manga and anime adaptation I’ve ever seen. Tying with Noragami, THIS IS THE BEST ANIME OF WINTER 2014. I was head over heals when they announced a second season at the end of Season 1 finale in Summer of 2013. But they are most likely not making a third season adaptation. BUT MY FINGERS WILL ALWAYS CROSS FOR GIN NO SAJI!
Tonari no Seki-kun
Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta
Onee-chan ga Kita!
It’s very difficult to move on to these beautiful anime. But I hope Spring of 2014 shows will make me happier.
