That's right kids, it's another light novel adaptation, this time in the form of Kami-sama no Memo-chou (or God's Memo Pad if you prefer), another J.C. Staff series for the summer. This show's story introduces us to a team of NEET (Not in Employment, Education or Training) detectives, which to be honest seems like a contradiction as I'd class working for a detective as being in employment. Anyhow, at the head of this team of detectives is a girl named Alice, a shut-in who solves mysteries from the comfort of her own bedroom by getting other around her to do all of the running around on her behalf.
Should I watch it? While its premise sounds a little like a modern-day Gosick that's trying to appeal to otaku, I am a sucker for mystery series personally so as long as it has strong stories to back it up, so if it can provide some engaging plots I'm on-board for this one. Your own mileage, of course, may vary.
Let's not mess around here - this series is about breasts. In fact, the plot to this manga adaptation is so ridiculous I can't believe I'm writing it, but here goes... Manyuu Hikenchou depicts a world in which breasts mean everything, and only those with big breasts are guaranteed success and prosperity. Enter a clan with a scroll that holds techniques to guarantee the growth of big and beautiful breasts... and I can only imagine what those techniques might involve.
Should I watch it? Good lord, no... in fact, I personally forbid it.
We don't know a huge amount about this particular series at the time of writing, aside from it sharing a director with Revolutionary Girl Utena and the promise of Brain's Base taking up production duties. Mawaru Penguindrum is going to tell the story of three sisters, but gives the impression of being anything but a cliché-driven slice of life comedy or anything of that sort, watch this space.
Should I watch it? An original concept worked on by some big-name staff? Sounds promising to me. Besides, penguins are awesome so anything with one in the title can only be worth watching, right?
Konoe Sobaru is a butler for one of his classmates, and also a seventeen year-old boy... or is he? Once her secret is out, hijinks ensue in this romantic comedy manga adaptation.
Should I watch it? I suppose it was impossible to go an entire anime season without one cross-dressing anime, and this is it this time around - that's probably the only notable hallmark for this series though.
