It is the year 2029, and as many rush to embrace the changes that cybernetic technology bring to mankind, the seedier side of humanity is even quicker to take advantage of it.

7:25 - The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

The eccentric Suzumiya Haruhi wants nothing more than to meet aliens, time travelers and espers… but she’ll have to settle for the everyday Kyon instead! Along with the mysterious Itsuki and the vacant Mikuru, the duo forms the SOS Brigade – a club whose mission is to discover the mysteries of the world. Armed with a razor sharp wit and a skill for manipulation, Haruhi will stop at nothing to have fun at all costs, even at the expense of Mikuru’s dignity!

7:50 - Sakamichi no Apollon: (Kids on the Slope)
Image
Lonely Kaoru Nishimi has lost count of how many times he has moved schools thanks to his father's naval career. Newly landed in Kyushu, he finds most of his classmates instantly antagonistic towards him and suspicious of his elite background. Only two other students seem not to mind who he is – the infamously abrasive Sentarou and the gentle Ritsuko. Unbeknownst to Kaoru they have a passion for jazz, and they're about to pull him out of his stiff, joyless world into theirs of loose, swinging self-expression. Through friendship and frustration, love and despair, Kaoru will learn that life has a wealth of experiences in store for him!

Music,
Historical



8:15 - Slayers
Image
Meet Lina Inverse, a mighty sorceress who fights evil in the name of... greed, gluttony and black magic?! When she meets Gourry, a swordsman whose skill with the blade is rivaled only by his stupidity, Zelgadis, a grumpy sorceror who's been turned into a golem, and Rezo, a priest known for his benevolence (with a dark secret), you know her adventures are just beginning!

THemes:
Comedy,
Adventure,
Fantasy,
Magic



8:40 - BREAK



9:00 - Rideback
Image
Amidst the turbulent revolution of 2025 wrought by the GGP government, Rin Ogata only dreams of becoming a ballerina; like her mother before her, Rin’s grace and agility mean she’s destined for success on the stage. However, an injury and the untimely death of her parents quickly shatter her aspirations and, for once, Rin’s existence seems purposeless. That is, until she enters the garage of a club one day and sits astride a RideBack! The RideBack, a motorcycle with arms and the ability to stand upright, offers Rin a new world of boundless movement! What she doesn’t realize, however, is that this club of RideBack enthusiasts is about to get dragged into the bloody war between the GGP and the terrorists intent on overthrowing them. Life may be more exciting now, but it’s also become very dangerous: will Rin’s natural talents as a pilot be enough in a world where racing is not just for glory, but for survival?

Once a popular all girls' school, Ousai Private Academy is now co-ed due to declining birth rates. Takatoshi Tsuda, a boy newly attending Ousai solely because of the proximity to his house, is quickly forced to become the student council vice president and male representative of the school by president Shino Amakusa. Now looked upon as nothing more than a filthy pig by his female peers, Takatoshi must cope with learning about a whole new side of the opposite gender, hearing plenty of dirty sex and period jokes along the way!

Themes:
Comedy,
School Life,
Parody,
Sexual Content



9:50 - Mirai Nikki (Future Diary)
Image
Yuki is a disaffected middle school boy who has no dreams or goals in life; in fact, the only thing he has is his diary. Writing down everything he observes and documenting every thought, the young boy uses it as an outlet for his imagination. One morning, however, Yuki wakes up to find his cell phone filled with diary entries for the next ninety days. Thinking nothing of it, he continues his morning until he begins to realize that everything on his phone is rapidly coming to pass, and it isn't just mere coincidence. Now, Yuki suddenly finds himself thrust into a survival game against other future diary owners to become the new Lord of Time.

That's a pretty bitchin' first half. And overall not too bad. A very general appeal first half, with a more hardcore niche second half. Nice job :)


I watched the first season of Slayers on Netflix earlier this year, and it's certainly still watchable :) Are you guys going to watch the hilarious English dubbed version?

Yeah. Slayers has to be dubbed. The show really gains a lot from it.

Trust me, we all want that. We only changed the night because they scheduled a class Tuesday nights in Doudna 103. There really aren't any other rooms capable of holding these meetings properly.

A very dub schedule.
Three shows with high amounts of Crispin Freeman.

This schedule is pretty good. Haven't seen Haruhi in quite a while. Are we showing it as it originally aired or are we showing it in the order where it makes more sense? The only series on this line-up I haven't seen is Sakamichi no Appollon. As for the other series, I'm looking forward to the reactions that S.Y.D will get with its mature humor. I read the manga for Mirai Nikki and it a rather unusual mix of kawai and kawaii or cuteness and scary. I can see why its the last show on the line-up.

Haruhi will be shown in the order it was originally aired, way better that way

Also, and I'm surprised no one has said this yet, the thread title is wrong.

Also, the art you used for Slayers depicts characters only seen in Slayers Next (which I think is a better series all around, but both are great). If I had to pick a favorite reason, it is because Crispin Freeman started as Zelgadis, rather than being given the role after Daniel Cronin messed it up for 13 episodes (though in actuality, Daniel Cronin was replaced due to a production hiatus, during which he stopped being associated with Central Park Media).

I'm actually looking forward to this fall. I also predict there may be a couple carryovers.
