Expect the recs in a week or so after 2 or so eps of everything has aired. This season looks bleak so far, tons and tons of just awful shows ;w;
So summer season is here, and the biggest question we get is what anime should I watch? With the new season here I am gonna make a list of shows that in my opinion might turn out to be watchable( They could also be crap though! ). Since this is primarily my taste, leave a comment here or on the relevant group announcement with suggestions you think should be here!
New shows this season
In August of 20XX, a portal to a parallel world, known as the "Gate," suddenly appeared in Ginza, Tokyo. Monsters and troops poured out of the portal, turning the shopping district into a bloody inferno.
The Japan Ground-Self Defence Force immediately took action and pushed the fantasy creatures back to the "Gate." To facilitate negotiations and prepare for future fights, the JGSDF dispatched the Third Reconnaissance Team to the "Special Region" at the other side of the Gate.
Youji Itami, a JSDF officer as well as a 33-year-old otaku, was appointed as the leader of the Team. Amid attacks from enemy troops the team visited a variety of places and learnt a lot about the local culture and geography.
Thanks to their efforts in humanitarian relief, although with some difficulties they were gradually able to reach out to the locals. They even had a cute elf, a sorceress and a demigoddess in their circle of new friends. On the other hand, the major powers outside the Gate such as the United States, China, and Russia were extremely interested in the abundant resources available in the Special Region. They began to exert diplomatic pressure over Japan.
A suddenly appearing portal to an unknown world—to the major powers it may be no more than a mere asset for toppling the international order. But to our protagonists it is an invaluable opportunity to broaden knowledge, friendship, and ultimately their perspective towards the world. -from myanimelist page
this show is turning out much better than I expected, I am usually not a fan of military shows but this one seems like it might be more about political power struggles and silly action.
Game of laplace-
The story takes place at a certain middle school where several murder cases take place. Kobayashi, a boy who goes to this school, meets genius detective Akechi, who comes to the school to investigate. Kobayashi takes an interest in Akechi and, in spite of his friend Hashiba's worries, he volunteers to be Akechi's assistant. - from myanimelist page
Honestly I think this one could go either way and only time will tell but I am a sucker for edge.
In the city of Ergastulum, a shady ville filled with made men and petty thieves, whores on the make and cops on the take, there are some deeds too dirty for even its jaded inhabitants to touch. Enter the "Handymen," Nic and Worick, who take care of the jobs no one else will handle. Until the day when a cop they know on the force requests their help in taking down a new gang muscling in on the territory of a top Mafia family. It seems like business (and mayhem) as usual, but the Handymen are about to find that this job is a lot more than they bargained for. -from myanimelist page
Lewd chesty brown girl and possibly op main characters could make or break this show, so far I think its worth checking out.
The story begins with Yggdrasil, a popular online game which is quietly shut down one day; however, the protagonist Momonga decides to not log out. Momonga is then transformed into the image of a skeleton as "the most powerful wizard." The world continues to change, with non-player characters (NPCs) begining to feel emotion. Having no parents, friends, or place in society, this ordinary young man Momonga then strives to take over the new world the game has become. -from myanimelist
Just look at this demon waifu, I suspect this will be the seasons hype show so you might get sick of it pretty quickly.
On the outskirts of Tokyo stands Hachimitsu Private Academy, a storied all-girls boarding school for elite young women full of potential and good breeding. But as the new school year rolls around, one tradition is going out the window: For the first time in the school's long history, boys are being allowed to enroll. But on the first day of school, only five boys make the cut. Kiyoshi Fujino, one of the lucky few, is thrilled by this discovery, his heart leaping with joy at the thought of being surrounded by all those girls, day in and day out. But little does he know of the shocking fate that awaits him. -from myanimelist
Lots of silly faces so this show could also end up as the hype show this season, Lewd dominating females might be too much for me.
Very few adolescent boys and girls have an onset of special abilities. Yuu Otosaka uses his ability unbeknownst to others in order to lead a satisfying school life. And then, a girl named Nao Tomori suddenly appears before him. Their encounter reveals the destiny for wielders of special abilities. - From myanimelist
Its by key, and its got that mega silly humor that they usually put in their stuff see below. bwahahhaha
Sixteen years after the "Law for Public Order and Morals in Healthy Child-Raising" banned coarse language in the country, Tanukichi Okuma enrolls in the country's leading elite public morals school and is soon invited into the Anti-Societal Organization (SOX) by its founder, Ayame Kajou. As a member blackmailed into joining by Ayame, Tanukichi ends up taking part in obscene acts of terrorism against the talented student council president Anna (for whom Tanukichi has a crush on). -from myanimelist
The 2nd show this season that seems like satire on sex-negative culture. this one might not be for me, but the premise is enough for me to give it atleast a few episodes
Monsters—they're real, and they want to date us! Three years ago, the world learned that harpies, centaurs, catgirls, and all manners of fabulous creatures are not merely fiction; they are flesh and blood—not to mention scale, feather, horn, and fang. Thanks to the "Cultural Exchange Between Species Act," these once-mythical creatures have assimilated into society, or at least, they're trying.
When a hapless human named Kurusu Kimihito is inducted as a "volunteer" into the government exchange program, his world is turned upside down. A snake-like lamia named Miia comes to live with him, and it is Kurusu's job to take care of her and make sure she integrates into his everyday life. Unfortunately for Kurusu, Miia is undeniably sexy, and the law against interspecies breeding is very strict. Even worse, when a ravishing centaur girl and a flirtatious harpy move in, what's a full-blooded young man with raging hormones to do?! -from myanimelist
Dragon Ball Super
Takes place a few months after the defeat of majin buu, I am very hyped for this due to nostalgia.
Jitsu wa watashi wa
Meet Kuromine Asahi, "the man who can't lie." On the way home, he learns an important secret. His crush, Shiragami Youko, is actually a vampire!
Can Asahi actually keep her secret?
It's a fun, clumsy, one-of-a kind vampire romantic comedy! -from myanimelist
Seems kinda generic but it could be fun
Anime adaptation of Bandai Namco's PSP action game series "God Eater."
Set in Japan in the year 2071 where the world has been mostly destroyed by mysterious monsters known as the Aragami. An organization known as Fenrir was made to exterminate Aragami using weapons called God Arcs which is made from the cells of an Aragami. Those who specialize in exterminating Aragami are known as God Eaters. Originally God Eaters had one type in which their God Arcs can only keep gun form or blade form, however a new type has been discovered that can switch between gun and blade form. Since then, they have been classified new-types and the previous as old-types. -from myanimelist

Tell me if there is anything good that I missed in the comments below or on the group announcement. I'll add whatever suggestions are popular here in a day or two.
Man I am terrible at maintaining a blog, and I haven't been able to stream much lately due to unstable internet. Slowly a pile of games that have caught my eye have been accumulating so why don't I share them with you ;3.
Disclosure- I have received a review copy of each of these games, more details on each individual game will be located in the disclosure section. I am making a post because I have literally nothing to write about, and figure why not share some of my excitement with you guys, not because the devs told me to or we have some kind of agreement for coverage or any silly thing like that ;3.
Akiba's Trip: Undead and Undressed-
This game looks mega silly. I read the premise when it came out a few weeks back, thought it would be mostly just lewd and dismissed it. I seen some discussion of it, watched some gameplay and changed my mind however and got a review key a few days back so this is probly the prime candidate for what I will be streaming most of this week. I just hope its not too lewd for twitch.
This game could be fun, kinda a arpg with gameplay similar to fight the dragon. I played just the very start of it a few days ago and the devs sent me a few extra keys ( I think its supposed to be most fun with friends) but I have none of those so instead I will do a few giveaways for it sometime this week ;3
The Next Penelope
Looks like a twinstick shooter/racing game. This could be amazing for me as I love this kind of stuff but I have yet to play it so we can only hope.
This one just came out into early access and the devs described it to me as being early/pre alpha so I won't be giving it too much playtime atleast right now. The concept is very cool though, management sims can be hit or miss for me. I will be checking back on this in the future.
I took all these screenshots from the steam store page since I havn't put any significant time into any of them yet. Hopefully I can stream this week! I will see you there ;3
Any games you are looking forward to? Rebirth 2 was awesome very excited for 3, Witcher 3 was amazing but I haven't finished it yet so no curation as of yet. There are some fun indies I have been playing but nothing that's provided me with a high enough cost/playtime ratio to justify curating just yet. So with all these great games that have come out in the past few weeks is there anything left to be hyped for?
check out my amazing roll a ball game ;3
Flight simulator in space. In my first hour of play reminds me alot oh x-rebirth except the ui and stuff actually works good, though it took me about an hour to get the hang of it. On screen navigation is kinda a pain at the start till you get used to the controls enough to feel comfortable with not looking where you are going, also navigating out of warp is kinda confusing but I'm sure there is a better way of doing things than what I did.

As I am sure everyone who stops here quickly realizes, my writing is just plain bad. The number of spelling/grammar errors I make is by no means acceptable on a professional level. A few months back I created a patreon page to give me an incentive to write full game reviews/improve my writing. While the patreon page grew beyond my expectations I still have done very little to improve, or even write at all. This is not a job it is a hobby, but I believe you should try to do your best in all faucets of your life(Including shitposting)
A nice space rogue like with a very appealing art style and some very serious RNG. Fly around trying to reach a certain point while trying to find abandoned spaceships, new parts, and of course consumables to keep your ship moving and crew alive. It reminds me of FTL in alot of ways but instead of combat there are riddles, and aliens to meet. At this point in my play I would say it is worth the price tag of 10bucks but that's up to you to decide.
I am working on changing the strucuture of these little posts to try to include my initial stream but at the moment I am encountering issues, For now if you would like to watch some gameplay footage check out my initial stream here! http://www.twitch.tv/sakuyak/c/6486049
Disclosure!- I recieved a review copy of this game, I do not believe it affects my judgement of the game but you should know anyways ;3 If you want to know more check out the disclosure page of this website.
StarCrawlers is a rpg/dungeoncrawler with turn based combat that has recently released on steam early access. The game currently lacks the main campaign but it has unlimited randomly generated sidequests. The dungeons themselves are also randomly generated. Your party can consist of up to 4 different classes out of the 8 available. At the moment I feel there is some balancing needed for the combat in general but It is enjoyable and each class has its own purpose (though some of them just feel underpowered atm). While technically you could play this game forever, each classes skill trees are not yet complete and you can get your party members up to the highest available skills after grinding for a few hours. Combat follows a timeline system with different moves having different amounts of time + weapon time determining that characters next turn.
So far I am really enjoying this game but the lack of content/direction is a deal breaker for a stamp of approval, but once more content is added I could see this becoming a real gem.
Check out StarCrawlers at the steam store page here!-
