That dialogue writing

I like this one quite a bit. Kind of surprised that this is a Project No.9 production, have they ever even done anything worth watching? Well, visual quality has never been their problem, so I won't complain. Expecting good things.

Soo another anime about making a game guess first episode was alright. Soo you got a script writer and a female with ambition but didn't really say her job? Guessing it going to be dating Sims like with possible yuri and yaio for humor aspects maybe? On Hulu another exclusive for them as they continue to get new shows rights

Episode 1: Girls Who Chase After Their Dreams

That was actually pretty fun. I could see people seeing this as pretty dry but I thought the characters were interesting enough to keep my attention and continuing with the rest of the series.

Wonder if this will turn into a harem/love triangle of sorts or will it focus more on the game making aspects with slice of life and hints of romance without progressing on that romantic development.

The characters seem fun so far, the designs and animation are pretty good. Also I just realized that the restaurant that Buntaro works at is call Shoryuken. Street fighter reference?

This looks like its going to be a fun series. Always good to have a little slice of life in your queue.


I like this girl

Black haired female character in lolita styled clothes...
Hell yes

Other than that, pretty interesting.

Kuroda, I love you already. I don't care how early it is, I think I've found my best girl of the season.

It looks like it's going to be a pretty fun series, though. Obviously Saekano comes to mind, and while that wasn't exactly a serious anime, this one still looks like it will takes itself a little less seriously. None of the characters have rubbed me the wrong way, yet, either, so I'm looking forward to more. I'm also wondering how plot heavy this is going to be. And I mean that in the literal sense, rather than the metaphorical "plot" sense. I think I'd enjoy a more slice of life format to this show, that follows the characters, more than a plot centric format that focuses on making the game, but that's just me.

This one's a big nope for me. I liked the premise but it seemed like the majority of air was awkward pauses and the character designs are generic.

Shit, so The Anime Network is now monopolizes the stream? Ugh. And they're like Viz that uses Hulu as their default player. Hulu is just getting more and more these days.

all i can say is it looks good but the fact that i'm not in the U.S makes me sad for i have no idea how to stream it legally since it looks like its hulu exclusive

It isn't. From http://www.theanimenetwork.com/Blog/20160107776/pr-winter-2016-simulcasts

Norn9

A boy finds himself transported to a mysterious world where he meets three girls and nine young men on a spectacular flying ship. Based off the popular visual novel game, Norn9 is the can’t-miss high flying adventure of the season. Stream it this Thursday, January 7, 2016 at 8:30 AM EST in the USA, Canada, the UK, Ireland, South Africa, Latin America, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Turkey, the Middle East, and North Africa.

Girls Beyond the Wasteland

Personalities and priorities clash in the classroom in Girls Beyond the Wasteland, a slice-of-life teen drama that pits a boy with no motivation against a girl with ambitions on creating her own romance video game! This romantic comedy will air on Thursday, January 7, 2016 at 9:30 AM EST and will be available for streaming in the same aforementioned territories.

I included the blurb about Norn9 as otherwise "same aforementioned territories" would have made no sense.


One Hulu exclusive probably is Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle, although even that doesn't mean it is only available in the US:

Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle

Finally, based off the popular light novel, Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle tells the story of the dethroned prince of Arcadia as he is once again swept up into dangerous games with ancient mechanical weapons. The only problem? He’s training for these games in an all girl’s school! This simulcast title will start on Monday, January 11, 2016 and will be available for streaming on Mondays at 9:30 AM EST in Canada, the UK, Ireland, South Africa, Latin America, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Turkey, the Middle East, and North Africa.

Note that Canada is included but the US isn't. Know any video services that only stream in the US?

Ep. 1

Has potential, though whether it reaches it who knows. Definitely liking Kuroda since she kinda reminds me of Yukino from Oregairu.

I really hope it goes with the latter, there's enough harem/LT's out there. Not to mention there was already at least one series I can think of that ruined itself via an LT and drama created from it.

I like the main girl(Kuroda), so i'll keep watching for now. Story also by the guy who made Cross+Channel which was a pretty good VN imo.

I enjoyed the episode, found it amusing how someone so serious in appearance could be so passionate about making a game. My favorite parts were when she let her serious demeanor slip, like when eating the ice cream, watching the dolphins, or going on that ride.
Curious as to how the rest of the show will be.

I KNOW, right?!!!


It really goes to show how well it was done, in that so many characters were introduced and we got a nice feel for their personalities and the dynamics between the characters all the while introducing the key conflicts and plot all in one episode.



It was just so well crafted. It wasn't rushed or felt like things were awkwardly placed in for the sake of exposition. Like Bunta himself, it was busy, but focused.

I hear Romeo Tanaka is involved. I've only heard his writing is good from Loomy and other people who have played some of Key's VN's.
