Fall Anime 2014

I will probably be posting a lot of new stuff in the next few days. These posts seem to always come in waves. It is what it is I guess.

Anyways, 2014 Fall anime time. I've decided to try and view a few more anime series this season. This is mostly because last season I watched so few shows that I actually got bored waiting on them to come out. Of course this may also be why I've been playing so many games as of late, but I'll post about hat later on.

So on with the list of what I'll be watching this season! 

As always the full list can be viewed on Anichart.net.

Due to humanity obtaining the data technology that has evolved to a great amount- called "Mana"- the human race is able to subjugate all wars, starvation, pollution, and other problems on Earth by using its power, which is similar to magic. Earth has obtained the utopia of complete peace and no wants.

First princess of the Misurugi Empire, Angelize. As with everyone else, she also had no wants or worries. She was celebrated by the people of the empire, and was supposed to wear the crown. However, she realizes the shocking truth that she is a Norma. "Norma": An irregular existence that cannot use Mana, and are treated as heretics and as "things" rather than people. Having everything stolen from her, she isolates herself on a remote island.

What was waiting for her there was a fateful meeting with a group of Norma girls who know nothing but battle. The girls spend their days riding humanoid robot weapons called "Barameiru" hunting giant dragons that have come from another dimension to invade. Having her name taken from her, what will soldier Ange see at the end of the fight? What can she believe in? What will she obtain? The story of a single girl's fortitude starts now.

5 years ago, the 200-year-long war between the alliance of six nations and the Gaz Empire came to an end when Emperor Arthur Gaz, the Immortal Emperor of the Gaz Empire, was finally killed by eight warriors known as the Eight Heroes. After the war, the Empire's lands were divided by the alliance, who later formed the Council of Six Nations to bring peace and order to the land. In the present, Toru Acura is a former Saboteur who lives with his sister Akari. Toru is unable to settle in this peaceful era as there is no demand for his Saboteur skills, and he sees no meaning in his life. While out foraging in the forest, Toru and Akari encounter Chaika Trabant, a white-haired girl with a white headband who claims to be a Wizard and save her from a man-eating unicorn. Taking note of their skills as Saboteurs, Chaika hires Toru and Akari for an important task; she is trying to gather the scattered remains of Arthur Gaz from the Eight Heroes, which is why she is traveling with a coffin. Chaika reveals that she is actually Princess Chaika Gaz, the former Emperor's daughter, who managed to escape in the chaos following her father's death and wishes to find her father's remains, so that he may be given a proper burial. However, the trio will face difficulties as the Emperor's remains were divided amongst the Eight Heroes. In addition, his body parts emit strong magical energy which can be harnessed, making them very valuable. Furthermore, Chaika is being pursued by the Post-War Kleeman Agency's Gillette Corps, who have been tasked with capturing Chaika as it is feared that her existence will serve as a rallying point for Gaz loyalists and the possible rebirth of the Gaz Empire, not to mention that the sheer power of Arthur's reunited remains might reignite the war. To top matters off, the protagonists are being targeted by other groups, all of them led by girls who also claim to be Chaika Gaz. Thus begins Toru, Chaika, and Akari's journey throughout the continent.
