The fall anime season has just begun and here’s what our authors are most looking forward to.

Toshi’s Pick: The Ancient Magus’ Bride

Where to Watch: Crunchyroll, FUNimation (dub)

The Ancient Magus’ Bride is a tale of magic and wonder about a teenage girl who sells herself into magical slavery. But what puts it at the top of Toshi’s list is the way it looks at domestic child abuse and it’s after-effects through the mindset of the anime’s protagonist, Chise.

Sarah’s Pick: Recovery of an MMO Junkie

Where to Watch: Crunchyroll

What excites Sarah about this story following a woman (who’d rather play MMORPGs everyday than work a full-time job) is how the story focuses on the interpersonal relationships between her and her guild members both in game and in the real world. Click through for more.

Ken’s Pick: Food Wars! The Third Plate

Where to Watch: Crunchyroll

What has Ken excited for a third helping of Food Wars! isn’t the amazing food porn but rather the enjoyment that comes from watching what is essentially a shounen fighting anime where battles are decided by wonderful culinary dishes rather than special martial arts techniques. For the complete story, click the link.

Richard’s Pick: Inuyashiki: Last Hero

Where to Watch: Amazon Prime Video

Surprisingly, it’s not the fact that it’s a story by the author of Gantz that has me so excited for Inuyashiki. Rather, it’s the idea of a sad old man becoming a superhero. Add to that the dichotomy between him and a young teen who also gets the same powers and you get a dark morality tale about the true nature of heroes and villains. For my full thoughts, click below.
