My hype level is out of control! I need more Bloodborne!

I've now watched the first four episodes of Terror in Resonance and it looks pretty legit. The thing that I love about original anime programming is that haughty manga readers can't come in and ruin everything with their "subtle" comments concerning upcoming plot points.
Okay, so I started watching some of this season's shows. Was not in the mood to start lighter ones but that will happen at some point.
Akame ga Kill! was better than I expected but still, I find the mixture of tone quite jarring. I would enjoy it more if there were less wacky fun and moe. The last episode is a good example for that. The impact of Sheele's death were hindered by a close-up on her scissor, which has a cute panda on it. It was effective, it got me good, but little things like that made it a little off putting. On the plus side, it has really good fight scenes. And, unlike in Tokyo Ghoul, it does not have censoring all over it. Which is a shame, because it's the superior one in almost every category out of the two. I can't wait to see more of that one.
Aldnoah Zero and Sword Art Online 2 are good choices.
@bocam: yo man, all that stuff ain't yet in the anime, don't go setting up false expectations. The next series will definitely cover it, but that doesn't come out this fall season. The first season of the anime covers volumes 1-5 of the LN, and all we know is that you eventually lose your memories when you die a whole bunch. Akatsuki is yet to get fucked up and die.
Yeah, straight up not in the season. Why would you bring up something from the manga that isn't in the anime? If you haven't seen the Log Horizon anime you shouldn't assume X plot point from the manga is in the show without knowing it's in there.
They are cousins. Suguhu found out they were just cousins while he was still in SAO.
Can we talk about the latest episode of Sword Art Online 2? People have complained about the series for various reason (some valid and some not), but I think this episode would be hard dismiss. We got some nice backstory on Laughing Coffin and we got to see that Sinon and Kirito are pretty close in terms of trauma.
Well that's one way to fuck everything up with streaming on Twitch. There will be a great migration to another service right?
Madoka had some pretty heavy moments as some people have already mentioned. It's spoilerific to mention any of them, but people know what they are.
The first season of Chuunibyou was sad as hell. You think it's all silly fun and games until you find out the reason for Rikka's delusions.
Ef - A Tale of Memories is also fairly sad. The premise is similar to a few movies. The girl can only keep her short term memory for a short length of time and stuff happens.
So, Vaati made another awesome video on the lore of the DLC
I kind of hope that all the stories of all three of the DLC isn't just 'king brought down by his power hungry queen' though. Still holding out for a fight against a resurrected Manus to round off the series though.
Just saw the video and I was about to post it here. The story of a King being brought down by their queen is PERFECT because it frames the Dark Souls theme of Dark creeping upon the Light.
The Furtive Pygmy did it against the Lords with every shard of humanity possessing part of the Dark Soul. Manus tried it in Oolacile and partly succeeded. The Abyss attacked New Londo, but was contained. You as the Chosen Undead have the choice of linking the flame or ushering in a new age of Dark, but we know that even if you link the flame someone else will come and bring forth the age of Dark.
With the DLC we see that the pieces of Manus have continued the fight and it reinforces the Dark Souls 2 theme of repeating cycles. This will of course lead to a rematch with Manus when it all comes together. That is my hope.
Shanalotte will also have a part to play. I don't really believe the idea that she's in cahoots with Manus. She's plotting with Aldia the Ancient Dragon. She wants you to take the throne, but why? Well find out at the end of the DLC.
@bocam: He used something called Demon Light which, yeah, might as well be nuking them I guess haha.They didn't go into detail. I just referred to it as spiriting away for shits and giggles. Either way, it was awesome.
I was a bit surprised as I didn't know Tatsuya was capable of stuff like that. I know people complain that he's OP, but you don't see many anime protagonists that will outright kill people without having the bad guys kill someone they care about first. The mob dude brought up the point that they didn't actually kill anyone and Tatsuya was essentially all, "Messing with my sister warrants death." I'm also fairly amused by the fact that the students don't know he's a walking precision missile of death.
So its been awhile since I've checked out any anime but I've been hearing good things about Kill La Kill so i figured i'd check it out and jesus I can't handle this shit anymore. Its like I've never eaten spicy food and decided to down some pure capsaicin. I need to inoculate myself with some generic ass anime to work up to this.
I can distill the whole show for you in a certain part of episode 3. Watch this 10 minutes section and if it's too much for you then you can switch it out for a show that's slower. People say that the best way to experience Kill la Kill is to know Gurren Lagann since it borrows heavily from that show (same people made it).
