So I decided to take a look at what's upcoming in the fall season.
Terra Formars: killer cockroaches from outer space! Right.
Grisaia no Kajitsu: Our Hero is the sole male student at a cloister. Uh-huh.
Inou-Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de: five members of the high school literature club have gained super powers -- only they don't have anyone to fight. Might be fun but probably really stupid.
Ore, Twintail ni Narimasu: Girls with twintails turn out to be key to the fate of the world. What, no glasses girls?
And a whole lot of other stuff that's even worse. I didn't see a single series which looked even moderately interesting.
The only thing of interest is a 3-ep Strike Witches OVA which fits into the continuity between the end of the second series and the movie. The first of the three episodes comes out in September and the others aren't even listed.
I tell you, it's gonna be bleak.
UPDATE: I don't even see anything that looks like it could be worth plundering for the top rotation. Sheesh.
UPDATE: Actually, the Mouretsu Pirates movie hits BD in November, so there's that to look forward to.

I'm going to come out of hiatus for a bit. If you've been watching the comments, I've updated the top rotation with grabs from five series, and I thought I'd write about those five. Spoilers below the fold.more...

I'm going to take a break. But I'll leave you with a catgirl.
Here are five more pictures of Eris I collected from a fan-art site. They're huge, but I can't bring myself to resize them because they're so clean.

Is this what they mean by "world cups"? No?
UPDATE: Well, they sure ain't German, so I guess not.

They're going to refloat the Costa Concordia next week, and if all goes according to plan, they'll tow it to Genoa, where it will be scrapped.
Greenpeace has announced that it's sending the Rainbow Warrior to block the movement to Genoa. They want it to go to a nearer port.
Imagine our joy.
I thought that sucker had been sunk. By the French? Something like that? (Aha; that was the First Rainbow Warrior. This is the third one.)
I've got an idea: How about this one?

I knew she was evil, but I never suspected it went this deep.
Bert was a piker...
Added 55 grabs from the Girls und Panzer OVA. Total number of images is now 3096.
This girl's nom de guerre is Pepperoni and she's third in command of the Anzio team, and commands all the tankettes.

Who is this? She takes over the academyI don't recall anyone ever addressing her by name.
Maybe Sid's sister?

It's the second round of the tournament. Our girls beat Saunders in the first round, but there's much to do. Going into the second round they still only have five tanks, although morale is high. The OVA fills in the Anzio battle, which fits in at the end of episode 7. Until now all we've known is that Ooarai won, but we didn't have any idea what the battle was like.
I downloaded a raw (because I didn't want to wait for a sub) but even without subtitles it wasn't too difficult to figure out what was going on. It was great! A hell of a lot of fun, partly because the Anzio team was a lot of fun.
UPDATE: In the manga, the Renault B1-bis was ready to go for this battle but didn't yet have a crew, so Miho put Yukari (commander), Caesar (gunner), and Aya (driver) in it for this battle. That didn't happen in the OVA; they only had the same five tanks they had against Saunders: Rabbit (M3-Lee), Hippo (STuG-III), Duck (Type 89), Turtle (38t), and Anko (Panzer IV). Turtle was the flag tank again.more...
