Sword Art Online II

Plot: The newest VRMMORPG craze is "Gun Gale Online", a shooter where a player can earn real money in tournaments. When two players are mysteriously killed -- seemingly after being shot by someone within the game -- Kirito is called to investigate. (A-)

Characters: The ones in the spotlight are handled well. (A-)

Art & Animation: Upgrade! -- A

Voice Acting: A

Music: A

Objectionable Content: Profanity, suggestive/sexual material, blood

Other: This can barely be called "Sword Art Online" anymore, since the focus of the new season isn't "Sword Art Online", but, anyway... I guess that's why I'm giving SAO II its own review.

There's some pretty interesting aftermath from SAO brought into the mix in the "Gun Gale Online" arc, and newcomer Sinon has a fun dynamic going with Kirito, while Asuna and other secondary characters take a back seat. Later in the season, however, the other characters take more of the spotlight in two out-of-place story arcs that don't really add to the overall plot or have the sense of urgency that SAO and GGO had.

Overall Score: A

Recommendation: 3/5

The Seven Deadly Sins (Nanatsu no Taizai)

Plot: When the kingdom of Britannia is taken over by the Holy Knights who were supposed to protect it, Princess Elizabeth seeks the aid of the Seven Deadly Sins -- evil knights who were said to have tried to overthrow the kingdom in the past and were supposedly eliminated... (A)

Characters: A

Art & Animation: A-

Voice Acting: A

Music: B

Objectionable Content: Blood, sexual innuendo/fan service, profanity

Other: Based on a manga of the same name. I'd heard good things about it and was curious to give it a try.

The anime is fun and has a good story and good characters, but it can go a bit far with the blood and fan service at times.

Overall Score: A-

Recommendation: 2.5/5

When Supernatural Battles Become Commonplace (Inou Battle wa Nichijou-ke no Naka de)

Plot: Five friends in the literature club suddenly develop superpowers. Six months pass, and they have yet to use their powers to save the world. Instead, they go about their normal day-to-day school lives usually using their powers for gags. (Nothing special here in the way of overall plot. B-)

Characters: B+

Art & Animation: A-

Voice Acting: A-

Music: B+

Objectionable Content: profanity, mild blood, fan service/suggestive themes

Other: This is a kick-back-and-relax kind of show that offers lots of laughs and a little drama.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5

World Trigger

Plot: A gate to a different world appeared in Mikado city. In order to combat the "Neighbors" who poured through and attacked, an organization called Border was established that uses special technology against the invaders. Osamu Mikumo is an agent-in-training of the Border defense agency. When he tries to protect his classmates from an attacking Neighbor, a transfer student named Yuma Kuga jumps in and saves him and reveals that he himself is a neighbor... (B+)

Characters: A-

Art & Animation: Animation can be surprisingly lazy (especially apparent in the first episode's opening exposition), and background art can be sloppy at times as well -- C+

Voice Acting: A

Music: B

Objectionable Content: profanity, mild blood

Other: There is also a manga. The adaptation follows pretty closely thus far.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2.5/5

The Irregular at Magic High School (Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei)

Plot: In a world where "magic" is now quantified and used by means of technology, the magicians' powers are honed in special schools. Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba have just enrolled in Private Magic University Affiliated High School. Miyuki is grouped with the elite in Course 1, while Tatsuya, due to his low test scores, is placed in Course 2 and treated as inferior. But he has a few secrets tucked away that will impact not only the school, but maybe even the country... (An interesting premise, but segments of the story drag while important questions remain unanswered. -- B-)

Characters: B-

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A-

Music: A-

Objectionable Content: Blood, innuendo/fan service, profanity

Other: I personally wasn't very attached to the cast, and as the series goes on, it gets surprisingly bloody.

Like many other anime recently, this one is adapted from a light novel. I've never read the light novel or manga versions.

Overall Score: B

Recommendation: 2/5
