Spring 2015 Anime Plan!


Hello everybody, I hope many of you are doing well in School or work as well as probably enjoying the last bit of spring break. Spring is in the air, unless you’re dealing with Winter’s wraith and all.

Anyways, now that spring is here and all. It`s that time again to announce some new anime to watch for Spring 2015. I’ll be watching 13 series for Spring 2015. It looks like there are some interesting anime for me to watch for spring season or so, so let`s continue shall we.

The first anime I’ll be watching for Spring 2014 is Arslan Senki or The Heroic Legend of Arslan, it’ll begin airing on Apr 5, 2015 on JNN at 5:00 PM JST. It`s produced and animated by LIDEN FILMS, the studio that brought us Terra Formars. The series is adapted from the the manga verion of the novel by FMA creator, Hiromu Arakawa. The premise seems interesting, but hearing the FMA creator attached to it has my interest piqued. The opening theme will be [“Boku no Kotoba de wa Nai Kore wa Boku-tachi no Kotoba” (僕の言葉ではない これは僕達の言葉;These Aren’t My Words. These Are Our Words) by UVERworld] and the ending theme will be [“Lapis Lazuli” (ラピスラズリ) by Eir Aoi]. The OP single will be released on May 13, 2015 while the ED single will be released on Apr 22, 2015.
