Autumn Season Inaugural Watch

My Autumn Seasonal Pick

These autumn shows look really good

It’s a been a good long while since I’ve done this type of post. Time, sure has flown by for anime shows airing in Summer.

Next destination, autumn showing. Granted, there might some overlaps with shows I haven’t finished/started from Summer. That’s not what this post is all about though. Going through anime live chart (synopsis taken from anime planet), there are some shows that look good! which I’m looking forward to.

In no order at all:

Blue Lock

After a disastrous defeat at the 2018 World Cup, Japan’s team struggles to regroup. But what’s missing? An absolute Ace Striker, who can guide them to the win. The Japan Football Union is hell-bent on creating a striker who hungers for goals and thirsts for victory, and who can be the decisive instrument in turning around a losing match

Blue Lock

It’s been a good long while since I last watched a football anime (last one being days). I’m definitely watching this alongside Ao Ashi, since the footie fan within me is just bursting to come out again (should read the comments left on Haru’s Otaku Space epi reviews). Not many know this but I used to support my city football team, and even play a video game called football manager that allows me to actually manage any team I want. The flip side, as a sport epi reviewer, I’d love to cover this (there is another sport entry), however I’m already behind two sports shows.

Renai Flops

Asahi Kashiwagi is a student who runs into a series of unusual accidents on the way to school — all in accordance with a vague television fortune he watched that morning, and all culminating with an unfortunate encounter with a girl. Coincidentally, all the girls he meets are new students or teachers at his school.

Love Flops

I’m in two minds about this. From the trailer, it looks pretty generic school rom com, where the main lead ends-up getting a harem. At the same time, I’m curious about how this will go, don’t really have high expectations though. It’s an original work, I guess that’s a mild plus…maybe?

Yowamushi Pedal: Limit Break

Sakamichi is a die-hard otaku; he loves anime and manga, and rides his clunky bicycle over 90 kilometers to Akihabara each week for the latest toys and games. Upon entering high school, Sakamichi is thrilled to meet others that share his passion, but soon discovers that the anime club is defunct and in need of members.

Yowamushi Pedal

I’m very new to this series, and you’re probably thinking “Roki, why you put the first series synopsis down” simple, there isn’t one written for limit break (yet). Just by doing some research on it, Yowamushi is a long one, with multiple entries. So, I’m literally going in blind on this one. And I’m jumping in at a very late point in the series – it would be better to watch from the beginning to get context and familiar with the cast, I’ll be awkward, I’ll be going backwards. As for epi scribbles, this would be the other sport show I’d cover.

Kage no Jitsuryokusha ni Naritakute

Shadowbrokers are those who go unnoticed, posing as unremarkable people, when in truth, they control everything from behind the scenes. Cid wants to be someone just like that more than anything, and something as insignificant as boring reality isn’t going to get in his way!

The Eminence in Shadow

Well, didn’t take long for me to shove in an isekai show. And would you look at that beauty of a title, it could only mean one thing; a light novel adaptation. From the trailer, it does look good. Fast paced action, however I’m tempering my expectations with this one, most likely something enjoyable with some snacks to watch with.

Tensei Shitara Ken Deshita


Reincarnated as a sentient weapon with memories of his past life, but not his name, a magical sword saves a young beast girl from a life of slavery. Fran, the cat-eared girl, becomes his wielder, and wants only to grow stronger, while the sword wants to know why he is here.

Reincarnated as a sword

Well, another isekai show based on a light novel has been picked. This one intrigues me more, simply because there aren’t any OP male characters who are reincarnated, well not as a human at least, but as an equipment. Which is definitely a unique take on the whole isekai genre. From the trailer, I’m not expecting too much from this show, like eminence something to watch with snacks. Surprised with the date given, this show starts pretty early, 28th Sep (according to live chart).

Those are the shows I’ve picked for the autumn seasonal showing. I’ll try to keep up with them. Now over to you peeps, what shows are you plan on watching, let me know and I’ll catch ya on the next post😀

I’m familiar with the Blue Lock manga (read up to chapter 80 something) and I confess I’m looking forward to see it adapted. Ao Ashi’s already taken the spot of the better one (sorry) but it’s a nice event to have two double cour footie anime follow up. We’ve been blessed this year.

I confess I want to get into Yowamushi Pedal but man, there’s a lot to catch up and I just don’t have the time to do it right now. But hey, it gets on my plan yo watch list.

I’m looking forward to your reviews, Roki! And thanks for the shout-out there 🙂

Yeah, we’re blessed (and spoilt) to have two footie anime this year :D. I’ll confess and say I’m pretty much a non-manga reader, so I’m going in to blue lock blind. Yeah, I could tell from your reviews, Ao Aishi will be hard to dislodge when it comes to sports anime.

As with blue lock, I’m pretty much will be going in to yowamushi blind xDD. It does look interesting though. And yeah, jumping in from this entry point, it will be confusing to follow as to what is going.

As for reviews, I appreciate you wanting to see what I think Haru, at the moment I’ve dragged out ace of diamond and birdie wing. I’m also taking a look at how I can make my epi reviews more engaging at least or not make it as dry xDD, putting a 500-word count does limit what I can say. If I recall, Karandi from 100word anime, her word count for epi reviews is 700. So, I’ll be taking in to count of increasing my word count for my epi reviews (and try not to make them dry xDD).
