New anime

Let's see if I can manage to review all the anime series that began in the summer season before the season is done!

Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaete mo Omaera ga Warui!: That translates to "It's not my fault I'm not popular!" Oh dear, yes it is your fault! Sure, going from middle school to highschool is a chance to redefine yourself -- but you gotta make an effort to make a connection with others if you want to be popular...
Alas, our main character has not gotten the message, and the first episode quickly degenerates in a self-pity party. I couldn't find anything fun about it.

Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist: William Twining, rich heir to a Victorian-era industrialist, is the top student at his posh private school. But then it turns out that his uncle (who manages his estate) has gone bankrupt, taking William's fortunes down with him. But then William finds a devil summoning circle and manages to bind a devil to his service. Except he doesn't believe in devils!
Oddly enough, this demon is also called Dantalion, but doesn't remotely look like the goth-loli of that other Victorian demon-summoning anime a few seasons back. It's fun though, and the battles are nicely over the top.

Blood Lad: Fuyumi accidentally wanders into the world of the monsters. There she is accidentally killed after meeting the top monster of that world: a teenaged vampire. He turns Fuyumi into a ghost, so that they can enter the world of the humans together: Staz the vampire really wants to visit there, because they have all the cool stuff!
The concepts are kinda interesting, but it's kinda shouty and incoherent. It didn't convince us.
