Coming Up-Winter 2016

This year was definitely a great year for all anime lovers out there. Just remember Gangsta, God Eater, Death Parade, One-Punch Man, Noragami Aragoto, Tokyo Ghoul II etc. There were so many! Sure thing, the hopes for 2016 to be awesome are set high because of the anime of 2015. But what will the year 2016 really be like? We don't know for sure, but I took a peak at the Winter Anime Season of 2016
From the thing I saw, there were a couple of anime that  are bringing something new and fresh to the new season. Again some Shounen and Slice of Life, Action Thrillers, Fantasy, Magic, Supernatural...Just as always. Some anime did catch my eye and as the AnimeGirl I thought why not share some info with you out there. In this post an overview on three anime from the WINTER SEASON 2016. Enjoy! 

DIVINE GATE is a action, fantasy, Sci-Fi anime that is produced by a well known Production Studio-PIERROT. The same producers of three of my favorite anime Naruto, Tokyo Ghoul and Akatsuki no Yona. I really can't wait to see this anime. Starting on January 8th, the so called "Divine Gate" will open and the living world, the heavens and the underworld will be connected ushering an area of chaos where desires and conflict interact. To stop the chaos the World Council is formed, and as peace is restored again the Gate becomes just an urban legend. Boys and girls who are deemed fit are gathered  by the World Council and have only one goal. To reach the Gate, of course for their personal objectives. The one that reaches it has the right to remake the world. But what lies beyond the Gate, what is it exactly? 
I am very excited about this anime, and therefore put it as first in this post. It is an action loaded anime with a great animation. The idea of the plot is in my opinion great and from the trailer on YT and the PV on MAL I could see some drama and awesome powers and weapons too. The characters also look good and promise good background stories. So in short, I can't wait to see some action, some drama and a good start in the New Year.  

HAI TO GENSOU NO GRIMGAR is an action, drama, adventure and fantasy anime that will start airing on January 11th. I read the synopsis of this anime and it kinda sounded familiar. Let's see if you can grasp it too. The main protagonist of the anime, Haruhiro, suddenly wakes up in darkness not knowing where he is. The others around him where in a same situation. The only thing they knew were their own names. When the darkness lifted they all realized what their world actually looked like. They were trapped in some kind of...Video Game. In order to survive, Haruhiro formed a party with the others, started learning fighting skills and as a soldier in the reserve force he took his first step into the world of Grimgar. 
Sword Art Online... Sorry I mean Hai to Gensou no Grimgar, is a Toho Company production, a not so well known producer (Another, Akira), still the videos I saw promise an awesome animation. From the picture on the right you can clearly see that we'll have another kind of God Eater animation, which is different but very interesting to look at. But let's be serious, why? Why another SAO. Changing only the weapon style doesn't make it another anime. Still, I am not the type of person that judges a book by its cover. I know SAO is SAO, but I'll give HTGNG a chance too. And don't they dare to ruin the action with another romance. 

AJIN is planed to be a 13-episode-long anime that will start airing on January 16th. It is a dark adventure, horror, mystery, seinen and supernatural anime produced by Polygon Pictures. So what is it about now?
The story is set in a world where creatures called Ajin exist. They are actually humans that cannot die. They firstly appeared on a battlefield in Africa seventeen years ago. Today, more Ajins exist hidden within human society. And as a new and special species that is wanted for experimental and research purposes the government wants to generously pay everyone who manages to catch one of these. 
Our main protagonist in this story is Nagai Kei, an ordinary high school student who is waiting for his summer holiday. But this summer will be everything than ordinary. The first thing that caught my attention was the animation. It is exact the same as the one of God Eater. I tried to find if they had a common producer  but I couldn't find details. However, I am sure that it will be another "Boom" in the world of horror and mystery anime just like Tokyo Ghoul. We shall see...

These are the three anime I really am looking forward to in the season of Winter 2016. There are some other names like: Boku dake ga Inai Machi, Dagashi Kashi, Musaigen no Phantom World, Dimension W, Schwarzmarken, Norn 9 and much more. I hope this won't be the last post in beautiful 2015, if yes...AnimeGirl wishes you a HAPPY NEW YEAR and YEAR FULL OF NEW, GOOD and ENTERTAINING ANIME!

  1. SAO was terrible though. I think that's what the difference between the two is.

    1. Well, I would say that t wasn't that bad but the romance did put all the good stuff in the shadow!

  2. The film flutters to the ground like so much GOP convention confetti, all assertions, few facts and little substance other than the conspiratorial right wing talking points that are D'Souza's bread and butter.
