Sei and his well constructed gunpla continue to get crushed by the evil Sazaki until one day another boy with no common sense shows up to break the conventional rules of plastic model mobile suit piloting. Sei is very much a fan of building models of mobile suits from his favorite mecha franchise, but he just happens to be very bad at piloting them in a simulated battle. Sazaki wants to pilot one of his creations, but he fights in a style that Sei finds unfitting of his creations. He wants someone who can pilot like his father, a 2nd place finisher in the world championship. Fortunately, he finds one in someone in Reiji who can do the job just like his dad.
I will get this statement of fact out of the way quickly. There are 47 series airing in the fall. Only 2 of them are continuations of series that began in the summer. One of them is Kingdom which doesn’t really count. When you have that many shows I think it’s kind of pointless to write a lot on each and every series. I think I wrote about 3000 words on 20 organizations engaging in a competitive business against each other over the course of 9 months. That’s the most distant description I could write of describing sport I could think of by the way.
I’m still going to look ahead to the coming season for the reason that it presents an interesting case. There is a hell of a lot of noise when it comes to looking at what’s being released. Light novel adaptations, sequels, sports anime, game adaptations and combinations of those 4 are the dominant shows. I think one can’t go wrong with a known quantity with this much going on. I don’t blame anyone for that because inevitably there’s going to be a ton of crap. Hidden gems are extremely unlikely because everything is known beforehand in this blogosphere. When a series is announced, it seems like a perception takes effect based on just a few facts about it and its either terrible, great or forgotten entirely. I’m still going to watch most of these to get an impression of where they are coming from and I present these to you knowing that I’m just as biased as everyone else. I’ll try to keep it short since I don’t think you want to 5000 word walls of text.
