Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha Vivid Anime Announced!

Hahahahaha.  After posting just yesterday that 7arcs was stupid for not making Nanoha Vivid given StrikerS' sales, 7arcs listens to me, agrees, and announces a Vivid anime!

Are you kidding me?  It's been something like five years since the last Nanoha season.  This timing is immaculate!

This is so fantastic.  Vivid is at least as good as the storylines of the previous arcs.  This will rocket Nanoha up the rankings back to where it belongs again.  The Vivid manga is huge and still ongoing so I hope they do at least a 24 episode season for it.  The possibilities are endless.

Meanwhile, Blizzard has announced the release date for Warlords of Draenor, November 13th, 2014.  Just a few months away now.  The 'level 90' boost so that you can skip everything pre-expansion and get right to the meat of the new content for your chosen character is a great idea too.  The garrison seems like a fun zone for solo players.  Most of all, ten additional levels will be a godsend and send our power levels off the charts.

Between Nanoha and Blizzard, the future is in good hands.

Meanwhile, I can't say Glasslip has lived up to its potential.  There's too much magic and weirdness and too little believable human emotions and interactions.  I can't get over the fact that they're forcing a kid to sleep outside in a tent instead of stay inside the house like his father and mother do.  That's just child abuse and it makes no sense, it would be so easy to prepare a bed for him so what on Earth are they thinking?  I'm tired of Glasslip.  I also think Aldnoah.Zero is getting steadily worse as time goes by.  I hate all the adults in the show, and I hate that the children bother to respect and obey such worthless people instead of forging their own path.  Lelouch created his own army, the black knights.  He didn't just serve someone else's army and do what they said even when they were always wrong about everything.

Aldnoah.Zero may eventually get good again, but more likely it's just like Suisei no Gargantia -- a good beginning and a horrible everything else.  As things stand, neither Glasslip nor Aldnoah belong in my rankings.  They're barely watchable, much less good.  Unfortunately I have nothing to replace them with.  I guess I'll just wait until the fall season, when Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai and Grisaia no Kaijitsu premieres.  Surely those two won't let me down.
