Usually, the “harvesting seasons” of anime is during April/June and November/December. This April, quite a few new anime came out. Although you can find the partial list here, I’ll finish up what Claire hasn’t; here’s the rest of the list of the new Animes coming out this April:

Title: Hero Man

Release Date: April 1st

Frequency: Every Thursday at 6 PM

Description: A co-production of the Japanese and the American animation teams… Dont like it so much.

Story Plot: Joey is a boy who makes his living by working off part time jobs. One day he picks up a toy. He names it Heroman and cleans it. That night, a thunder hits the toy….and a lightening hero evolves….

Expected Rating: 3/5

Title: Maid-Sama

Release date: April 1st

Frequency: Every Thursday at 1:55 AM

Description: It’s like 2nd place in or something in the Shojo (Manga for girls) category. A lot of people of both genders seem to like it though. Honestly, the first 50 chapters of the story was excellent, but it is losing its spice these days. Hope the Anime gets better. Episode 1 was O.K.

Story Plot: The story focuses around a student council president who is respected amongst the female population of the school. She is extremely tomboyish. Always full of energy, she rejects to be like a “Victorian Girl” and takes active roles in the school. However, due to her financial situation, she willingly takes part-time jobs that pay the most; she finds herself working at a cosplay cafe working with “supposedly handsome guys….”

Expectation: 4.5/5

Title: Working!

Release Date: April 4th

Frequency: Every Sunday at 11PM

Description: No one was expecting anything out of this anime until the zeroth episode (a trailer) was released. Its calm atmosphere, smooth plot flow and extreme comedy has gained great prominence from just that one mini-release. Everyone is waiting to see how it progresses…

Story Plot: A boy gets scouted into a part time job (what’s with all these part time jobs) at a cafe. At the part-time job, everyone seems to be nice people, but weird in their own way: A manager who fights with customers, a waitress who orders the chef to do her job, a totally unmotivated chef…etc. The story deals with the everyday comedy life at the cafe with these eccentric people.

Expectation: 4.5/5

Title: Angel Beats!

Release Date: April 2nd

Frequency: Every Saturday at 2 AM

Description: This was the second most ‘waited’ anime of April… Its promotion videos astounded people. Episode 1 was good, but wasn’t as great as everyone expected it to be. How would it turn out…?

Story Plot: Takes place in the afterlife centered around a boy who lost his memories of his life after dying. He is enrolled into the afterlife school, which exists as a middle ground between heaven and earth, where students learn to give up any lingering attachments they still have from life before finally going to heaven. At the school, the protagonist meets a girl who invites him to join the SSS—Shinda Sekai Sensen (Afterlife War Front)—an organization she leads which fights against God…

Expectation: 4.8/5


OK I’ve watched the first two episodes. EPIC. Please stop reading this and go watch. I’ll move the expectation up to 7/5

Title: Extreme Xecutor, Shin Koihime Musou, SD Gundam Sangokushi-Brave Battle Warriors, Saikyou Bushouden- Sangoku Engi

Description: Different adaptations of the Sangokushi (Record of Three Kingdoms), a classic novel…What the… why so many? Leave the story alone!

Expectation: 0

Thank You..

Just a side note, the K-on anime described in Claire’s blog is epic. It is being released in 28 different TV channels PERIOD. Is there any need for further description…
