Polluters, beware: SHE’S BAAAACKKK! Nothing can prepare you for the side-splitting insanity of Squid Girl Season 2, except of course for the events that transpired during the first season of Squid Girl.
As you might expect, Squid Girl’s invasion of the surface world does not exactly go as planned. After busting a hole in the wall of a beach house that belongs to a pair of sisters, our heroine must work off the damage bill by taking a job as a waitress. And thus does chaos and comedy ensue in equal measure.
Since Squid Girl’s debut in 2010, the character has become a much-loved cult sensation in Japan and around the globe with anime fans everywhere. Squid Girl Season 2 is sure to continue the fun with more ill-timed spurts of ink and pint-sized plans to wipe out all of humanity.
The story focuses on a tight-knit group of guys – twins Yuta and Yuki, along with Kaname and Shun – who have all been pals since kindergarten. But the addition of a half-Japanese transfer student at named Chizuru changes the chemistry and plenty of drama and subtle humor soon results.
The series is based on a manga by Kiichi Hotta that debuted in 2004. The Kimi to Boku comic is still running to this day and has been collected in a total of nine volumes. Meanwhile, the anime version has just debuted in Japan earlier this October under the supervision of J.C. Staff; a name that fans can associate with such classics as Revolutionary Girl Utena, His and Her Circumstances, and Honey and Clover. Following their example, Kimi to Boku is sure to also graduate into anime history, and into your heart, with top honors.
While Kimi to Boku is the new kid on the Fall anime season block, Season 2 of Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi is a returning favorite. Based on the manga series by Shungiku Nakamura, of Junjo Romantica: Pure Romance fame, Seikai-Ichi Hatsukoi (also known as “The World’s Greatest First Love”) falls into the uniquely Japanese “boy’s love” genre, but is also sure to be of interest to anyone who is interested in a behind-the-scenes look into the manga publishing industry.
Ayase Chihaya is a sixth grader whose dream is for her older sister to become the top model in Japan. But one day, a transfer student, Wataya Arata, tells her that her dream should be about herself. Arata's dream is to become a famous competitive Karuta player. Chihaya is somewhat shocked when she sees how intense the normally reserved Arata gets about the card game.
Arata is a shy boy that is mocked by his classmates but Chihaya befriends him and sticks up for him even at the expense of her good reputation with her classmates. She visits his home one day and watches him play Karuta with intense passion. His skill and speed is so quick that Chihaya’s only goal was to get at least one card. Four years later, Chihaya enters high school and discovers that Arata, who returned to Fukui, no longer plays Karuta. However, she believes that if she continues to play, they will one day be reunited. Therefore, she is determined to start a Karuta club at her high school.
If that doesn't suit your tastes, then I'm sure Hunter x Hunter will stir some excitement.
When a great title like this airs and then ends, we - as fans - hunger, nay, demand another healthy serving of it. Now that it's making its triumphant return, the pangs of our hunger are quenched and satiated...for now.
Gon, a young boy who lives on Whale Island, dreams of becoming a Hunter like his father, who left when Gon was still young. Abundant riches, hidden treasures, fearsome monsters, and exotic creatures are scattered around the world... Gon departs on a journey to become a Pro Hunter who risks his life in search of the unknown.
We’ve got your standard new additions and your returning titles. Then, we’ve got this third category of titles that have come back for a second season, but making its first appearance here on Crunchyroll. To all these new shows, we – with open arms – would like to say welcome! So what are we in store for this season?
Let’s kick things off with one of the most highly anticipated series: Fate/Zero!!
The family restaurant Wagnaria!! Season 2 stands by itself in Hokkaido. One day Sota Takanashi, who loves all things small, meets tiny little Popura, who offers him a job working part time at the restaurant. Attracted to her petite stature, Sota accepts her offer. To his surprise, the restaurant is filled with eccentric characters. Get ready to dish up some wacky comedy together with Sota and his coworkers!
While the first season captured our hearts and made us laugh uncomfortably with every progressing scene, we made us want more. With this second season here, we can have another proverbial second serving of our favorite family restaurant servers and hostesses!
Wagnaria!! Season 2 and all of its wackiness and energy will air every Saturday at 9 am PST.
Then we move over to something different from the first two titles: Majikoi~Oh! Samurai Girls.
And when we mean, different we mean different. Gone is the more serious, shonen action and the wacky relationships evolving out of a light-hearted atmosphere.
It’s one thing to honor your ancestors and keep old traditions alive, but there IS such a thing as taking it to a ridiculous extreme. In Kawakami City, having a samurai ancestor and enormous ‘fighting spirit’ isn’t just an interesting fact, it’s a huge part of how you end up being ranked on the social totem pole. That, in turn, rolls over into the school curriculum. Fortunately, that’s something the local kids like Yamato Naoe have learned to deal with by forming into small ‘bands,’ (that’s the samurai type, NOT music.)
However, while the delicate sexual balance of Yamato’s group seemed fine when there were three girls and four boys, the sudden addition of two MORE girls starts to send everything spinning out of control! Seven’s a band of samurai and nine is a riot as boys, girls and naked blades all come together in MAJIKOI OH! SAMURAI GIRLS!”
Who said that Saturday morning cartoons was a thing of the past?
It’s just grown up, gone across seas and come back to you to shake up your weekends once more.
Question is: what will rock your weekend the hardest?
Returning to the World of the Living, Ichigo spends his days hunting down Hollows with what little Spirit Energy he has left. However, knowing that Ichigo cannot continue this much longer, Rukia soon realizes the time of their parting is fast approaching.
Gon, a 12-year-old boy, fulfills his promise to Mito-san, the woman who raised him, in order to receive permission to set out on a journey to take the Hunter exam and become a Hunter like his father was. While sailing to the examination site, Gon meets Leorio and Kurapika, who are also trying to become Hunters. But the three of them get off to a rocky start...
Sixth grade was when Ayase Chihaya met Wataya Arata, the transfer student from Fukui. The shy and quiet Arata was hiding a surprising talent. He knew how to play the competitive karuta version of Ogura's Hundred Poets. Chihaya is stunned by the intensity Arata displays when playing karuta.
