I Think, Therefore I Am (Someone Else)

P.A. Works reunites most of the Angel Beats! team for Charlotte, an original TV anime written by Jun Maeda (Little Busters!). Our smart-ass protagonist has the ability to posesses someone's body for five seconds and he soon meets other teens with less-then-super powers, including the school council president who can turn herself invisible (but only to one person at a time) and a freshmen who moves so fast it appears that he teleports (except he can't stop himself from crashing into walls). See if the silly setup can deliver them feels when the show starts July 4.

The Guild Master Has a Bone to Pick With You

Salaryman Satoru Suzuki was supposed to watch a world die. Instead, he became its ruler. When the popular VRMMORPG, Yggrdasil, closed its servers, he stuck around to the bitter end only to be sucked into the game. Now his pathetic flesh has been replaced by the skeleton bones and black magic that comprise his avatar, the lich lord Ainz Ooal Gown. Prepare to log into darkness when the anime adaptation of web novel Overlord overtakes the airwaves July 7 courtesy of director Naoyuki Itoh ( Iriya no Sora) with scripts from Yukie Sugawara (Sword Art Online) and production by Madhouse.

Presented in Aqourscope

The results are in and Palettes! and Lir lost out to Aqours (pronounced "aqua"), which makes sense given the seaside setting of the show. No word yet on when the series starts but we can look forward to Aqours' first single on October 7.

Season two of Is the Order a Rabbit?, conveniently titled Is the Order a Rabbit?? (note the double question marks), is confirmed for October. The anime has practically caught up with the manga so we may end up with some original episodes that let us pyon-pyon where no heart has pyon-pyoned before.
