It is that time of the year when we take a look at new Anime titles being released in the season of Fall in the calendar year 2015. These Anime titles are personally hand-picked by ourselves without taking reference from any public rankings or opinions. The Anime titles are divided into two sections, the new series, the sequels, and sorted in ascending alphabetical order.

Take a look and see whether your taste is well-aligned with us or perhaps the other way round. ^^;

Takeru Kusanagi goes to "AntiMagic Academy," a training facility for Inquisitors of Herectics who crack down on the dwindling threat posed by magic users. However, Takeru cannot use guns at all and can only fight with a sword. As a result, he is relegated to the 35th Test Platoon, the motley "small fry platoon" for poor students. One day, Ouka Outori, the ultra-elite pistol master who already has her qualifications for witch-hunts, joins the platoon.
