Top Ten Hottest Anime Shows for Fall 2013
Article by Ben Huber

We're only a full month into the Fall anime season for 2013 but we're already getting a sense of what we like. Here are the top ten series that caught our eye:

Meganebu!

Meganebu!
This is apparently an anime about five high school boys who all have one thing in common: they wear glasses. Surely this is an adequate setting for a TV anime, right? Animated by Studio Deen and featuring more slices of life than you can handle, this shoujo series will definitely be an anime to keep your eye on... or glasses on?

Pokemon X & Y and Pokemon: The Origin

Pokemon X & Y and Pokemon: The Origin

While there's always a Pokemon anime series running, X & Y features a bunch of new Pokemon from the upcoming games. But the real news is the OVA that will air in October, retelling the original game's story with Red as the main character. If you want the purist Pokemon experience, this TV special will be right up your alley!

Kakumeiki Valvrave 2

Kakumeiki Valvrave 2
The second season of Valvrave continues the epic tale! While this particular writer wasn't a fan, this series was very popular with fans, so it bears mentioning here. If you like teenagers and giant robots, there's plenty of that here.

Monogatari: Second Season

Monogatari: Second Season
The second season of Monogatari continues into the Fall 2013 programming block, so while it's not a brand new series, it's a solid holdover from last season. It follow the student Araragi as he gets involved with a variety of women with... issues. And superpowers. There's a lot going on here, so catch up in the series and get ready for more Monogatari.

Hajime no Ippo: Rising

Hajime no Ippo: Rising
Hey! It's more Hajime no Ippo! This has always been a fairly solid series from Madhouse so if you want more boxing action, they've got you covered. This classic keeps coming back for more, just like Ippo. This time, Mappa also contributes the animation crew.

Ghost in the Shell: Arise - Border:2 Ghost Whispers

Ghost in the Shell: Arise - Border:2 Ghost Whispers
Aside from having the most ridiculous name around, GitS: Arise 2 is also just an OVA. This hour-long special will arrive during this anime season on Blu-ray, so while it might not be on the typical streaming sites, it'll still be a worthwhile item to check. The first installment was a solid (if flawed) OVA, so hopefully the second will improve upon its predecessor's shortcomings.


Kill la Kill

Yozakura Quartet: Hana no Uta

Yozakura Quartet: Hana no Uta

This is not the first time Yozakura Quartet has been adapted into an anime - but it looks like they wanted a another shot. The series features a town where humans and demons co-exist, but to handle supernatural disturbances, who you gonna call? Um, the Hiizumi Life Counseling Office, I suppose. These four teenagers all have unique super powers and use them to maintain order in this mystical town, and it has really sharp art.

Kyoukai no Kanata

Kyoukai no Kanata
The latest original series from the impressive Kyoto Animation! Original anime are always an exciting lot. KyoAni's series will follow a group of students who have supernatural powers, such as controlling their blood or being invulnerable to wounds. It seems to be a darker tone than KyoAni usually takes, so with that element wrapped up in their trademark amazing animation, you can see why many are anticipating this original anime.

Samurai Flamenco

Samurai Flamenco
Another noitaminA show, Samurai Flamenco is from the acclaimed director of Baccano!, Durarara!!, and Princess Jellyfish, Takahiro Omori. It focuses on a young man named Masayoshi who doesn't want to grow up, and becomes a super hero. A police officer learns his secret identity, and then everything breaks loose from there. Omori's previous works make this show one to keep an eye on this season and next.

Kill la Kill

Kill la Kill
Hiroyuki Imaishi, the beloved director of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is back, this time with another other-the-top anime series. Ryuuko transfers to a school where battles occur between the students and explosions are the norm. Her rival, Satsuki, opposes her every step of the way. Fresh off the success of Little Witch Academy, will Imaishi and Trigger be able to reach the stars just as before? We sure hope so.
