Welcome to the Fall 2013 Season Guide's 2nd part: OVAs and Movies! The only OVA here that will be available in North America legally is Pokémon Origins. All 4 episodes will be streamed on Nov. 15 over at the official Pokémon TV website. Are you guys and gals ready?!

Like what I blurted out in the other article, my first movie choice was Madoka Magica The Movie Part 3: Rebellion because, unlike the other two that were remakes of the series, this one follows up afterwards and focuses on Homura after all that craziness happened in the series' story. My OVA choice is Pokemon Origins because we get to see a story that's really based on the games. Hopefully, it will be fun too. My third choice (No clue, could be either a movie or an OVA) is Majocco Shimai no Yoyo to Nene because of the interesting story it seems to uncover within the trailers. Yeah, Magical Girls, Witches and Pokemon tend to be awesome to me.

Like the anime season, this season's movies and OVA's are pretty good. Quickly glancing at the list of OVA's, I'm most interested in the new Gargantia OVA. I had watched the series before to its completion and I liked it. So watching what happens after does not sound like a bad idea. I'm also looking forward to Pokemon Origins because the movie seems to be putting a different twist on the Pokemon series and I would like to see where this goes. Lastly, I'm looking forward to the new Captain Harlock movie. I haven't seen the original series or the reboot series, but the trailers for the CGI film look really nice. The CGI, for example, looks really well made. Everything from Captain Harlock to the people around him looks really detailed and fluid.

Acura and I are big fans of Gargantia, but I'll let him take that show. I'll choose Free. I never thought I be into Free since it's targeted towards another audience. I tried it last summer because I wanted to try something different. I enjoyed it more than Sunday Without Godbut equally as Blood Lad and Silver Spoon. For movies, I'm going with Case Closed x Lupin III crossover. It has been a while since I watched the shows on TV with those "Rabbit Ears." I'm more attached to Case Closed than Lupin III because some cases really touched me deep such as the Christmas case with the Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer jingle.

Did you check out the Fall 2013 Anime Guide -- AV MOD MATERIAL?

I'm pretty stoked for Madoka. Heard it will air in the US this December if I recalled correctly.

Edit:

Oops, I messed up the Twitter table. It got misaligned. I fix that in the future.
