With Summer anime season not to far behind us, The Fall anime season has already begun
Juuni Taisen/Zodiac Wars
Ousama Game/ King's Game
This season Gore fest, King game follows a group of High School Students who must Follow orders given to them by King unseen but orders are given to them Via text messages. Failure to carry out said orders would result in the student dying in a horrible way. The first half was just to set up characters and the plot. The second half was a outright murder fest. 10 students died in the first episode alone. Kings game is very interesting so im looking foward to see what else it has in store.
Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou/Girl's Last Tour
This follows Maika Sakuranomiya as she struggles to find employment so she can save up to study overseas due to her having a sadistic look to her eyes. On her way to a interview she bumps into Dino a owner of a Coffee shop which the servers have to play a stereotype (i.e Tsundere, imoto, Sadistic ect) after not getting a job (due to her sadistic look in her eyes) Dino see her again and offers her a job in his coffee shop which she takes. So far it not bad and having coffee shop workers play stereotypes like they work at a maid cafe is kinda interesting. So far its a good show.
Pt 2 Coming soon

The late comer to the summer party Owarimonogatari season 2 is the conclusion to the Monogatari anime series. It was a Two day event. Being honest this was a two day OVA. Its technically a OVA. Owarimonogatari season 2 is shorter than any of the other monogatari anime with a whopping 3 episodes.
So the first part continues after the last episode of Kyomimonogatari. Basically Kyomi is set to hell and meet Mayoi there. She is tasked with guiding him out of hell. It turns out all of this was planned by Gaen with the help of Tadatsuru (main bad guy from Tsukimonogatari) to extract Shinobu from him and making him human again. Before leaving hell he takes Mayoi with him back to earth and Tadatsuru tell him the name of the person who hired him to kill Kyomi which was Oshino Ougi.
hitagi rendezvous was basically Kyomi and Senjogehara going on a date. This half was mostly use to set up Ougi dark. The only good part to me was when Ougi enters Kyomi dream and they talk until he wakes up. Im glad they deiced to make Senjogehara have long hair again. Also she has a driver license so that was cool and interesting.
In Ougi dark the first half was Gaen, Kyomi, shinobu(in her kiss shot form) and Mayoi dissucssing plans on how to take out Ougi. Gaen decides to make Mayoi god of the shrine Nadeko once took over when she was possed by the snake in order to restore some kind of balence in that town. Gaen says he original plan was make Shinobu the god of that shrine but plans fell through when Nadeko got involved. Gaen then tells Kyomi Ougi's true identy and that he alone must stop her. It turns out Ougi is Kyomi. Ougi was created to judge Kyomi and all his deeds and actions. Kyomi now knowing this confronts Ougi in the old cram school from bakemonogatari where Oshino Meme was located. Once Kyomi reveals Ougi true identity the darkness shows up to take Ougi. Kyomi ends up saving Ougi and losing a arm in the process.While the darkness is still there waiting to take Ougi Oshino Meme shows up along with Hanekawa. Meme end up making the Darkness go away by acknowledging Ougi as his niece thus acknowledging her presence.
The whole series ends with Kyomi, Senjogehara and Hanekawa graduating High school and Kyomi telling Ougi (who is basically a ghost like oddity now) that no matter how much he change he still gonna be himself.
Hitagi Rendezvou was kinda boring being honest. Yes her interaction with Kyomi was nice but plot wise if it didn't help set up Ougi Dark i would have skipped it.
Mayoi had the most character development she seem more mature in this series. I like the fact that they decided to make Senjogehara have long hair her character seem the same as in other series. Mayori had the most development as a character in my opinion
Weird animation choices were made in this series but it still was good and to be expected from SHAFT
This was a nice conclusion to the series overall. Hanamonogatari is the True ending timeline wise but Owarimonogatri season 2 was a good ending overall. It wrapped up every loose ends nicely and it was good.

See what is airing here and here
Nora to oujo to noraneko heart/Nora, Princess and Stray cat
Musekinin Galaxy Tylor/Irresponsible Galaxy Tylor
This show has been met with a bit of controversy from fan of the Original Irresponsible Captain Tylor. This show takes place 2000 years after the original show and follows a banjo playing guy name Banjo Ukei Tylor and his space dandy cease and deist letter robot partner Yamamoto. The show is only Three minuets and the last three episode sees them meet a girl name Goza 168 sei a princess from a now long gone linage, getting a space ship to travel the galaxy, and meeting Dolly who i guess is possessing the ship they are in. While not a bad short the controversy comes from many fans from the original show which was 26 episodes and ran for 26 min instead of 3 expecting this to be some kind of ending or better ending to the original series than the OVA they gotten long ago. This show isn't really for fans of the original i guess. Its more trying to get new fans to watch the original series.
That it. What are you checking out this season?

Part one here
Keppeki Danshi Aoyama Kun/Cleanliness boy! Aoyama Kun
This follow a soccer player name Aoyama who is a massive germaphobe . He doesn't like being touch by anyone or anything that he deems is dirty. The first episode was funny and wasn't what i expected from this show, mostly giving its technically a sport anime as well, but i like Aoyama character and his interaction with his team mate Zaizen.
Centaur No Nayami/ A Centaur life
Jigoku Shojo Yoi no Togi/ Hell Girl Fourth Twilight
This one is kinda baffling, not plot wise plot wise it follows the same as the last three season. for the most part it looks like Emma Ai the series main protagonist will be challenge by a new girl who sees Emma Ai as not necessary. She seems to be some kind of supernatural being like Emma but on the good side. The last Hell Girl season aired in 2008 so it kinda odd that they would make a Fourth season now in 2017.A perfect time to air the fourth season would have been 2010-11 but that's just me. The fourth season it actually pretty good so far and im actually interested in this good vs evil premise they are offering this season.
Honorable mentions coming soon.
