Like last season, I’ll probably do some follow-up posts focusing on specific series, but for now…let’s do the obligatory run through all of the series in the coming season. I know how excited you all are, but if you’re too excited to read through everything, the summary is further down as always.
- Fukigen na Mononokean – I mean…sure, if it’s a short.
- Berserk – I get to use the excuse that I didn’t see the original series, right? I’ll just pass on this one…
- Love Live Sunshine – Me? Watch this? I have no idea what you’re talking about!
- Hatsukoi Monster – I’m not sure on this one. I might judge from the first episode.
- B-Project: Kodou Ambitious – This seems sketchy. Can I just listen to the soundtrack when it’s done?
- Tales of Zestiria the X – So, an anime adaptation of pretty much the only Tales game that I started and was unable to finish? Sign me up! I mean…everyone loves the Tales of the Abyss adaptation, right? Right?? (sigh…I feel like I’m obligated to watch this one)
- Saiki Kusou no … Nan – Not even gonna attempt that character (I think it’s “psi”). This series looks quirky enough to watch, but I’ll pass on blogging about comedy.
- Puzzles & Dragons Cross – Hahahahahahahaha no.
- Show by Rock Short – Normally I would watch shorts, but I never saw the original series, so probably not.
- Taboo Tattoo – Ehh…why not? Let’s try this one. I’m totally not being baited in by the mystery tag.
- Fudanshi Koukou Seikatsu – I have enough trouble watching series about fujoshi…why would a fudanshi be any better?
- Prism Illya 3 – Nooooooope.
- Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru – Seems generic enough to ignore.
- Planetarian – Post-apocalypse world? Sounds fun…I can’t remember if this is one of the VNs people love or hate. Is this a trap?
- Amanchu – meh…
- 91 Days – More historical series? Well, I watched Joker Game, so I feel like I have to at least try this one.
- Arslan Senki S2 – Oh yeah, I was gonna watch the first season of this series. Well, if I finish it in time, I might watch this second season, but it’s not looking likely.
- Battery – Not sure about this one. I’ve never watched a baseball anime and I’m not a huge fan of the sport.
- Time Travel Shoujo – …maybe…
- Active Raid S2 – Nope.
- Handa-kun – Probably going to be watching this one, but I doubt I’d cover it. I’ve been reading the Barakamon manga, which has been interesting, so this should be fun. I feel like high school days wouldn’t be as interesting, but I don’t mind trying it out to see if I’m proven wrong.
- Shokugeki no Souma S2 – Yes!
- ReLIFE – More yes!
- D.Gray-man Hallow – This series feels like it happened so long ago that I forgot it…
- Ozmafia – …what? Can I not?
- Onara Gorou – No…just no. I already know what the comments on this show are going to be and I refuse to be part of it.
- Servamp – Shoujo…vampires…uhhh
- Qualidea Code – Seems dangerous, but I might try out the first episode.
- Amaama to Inazuma – Not too sure about this one. Doesn’t look immediately interesting.
- Nejimaki Seirei Senki – From first glance, it’s a pass, but I might try it out.
- Regalia: The Three Sacred Stars – Can I skip on the mecha this season?
- Ange Vierge – Card game adaptation? Naaahhhh…
- Mob Psycho 100 – I’m cool with trying this one out. I doubt I’ll be able to cover it since I wasn’t able to cover One Punch Man, but watching should be fine…
- Cheer Danshi – Nope.
- New Game – I’ve read the manga for this series, so I’ll probably watch it.
- Rewrite – It seems like I need VN knowledge to appreciate this one, so I’ll just be off on the side not watching…
- Masou Gakuen HxH – Hahahahahahahahaha no.
- Dangan Ronpa 3 – You know, I don’t really know about this one. On the one hand, half of the series is devotes to the characters from the first Dangan Ronpa, which I watched. But the second half is on Dangan Ronpa 2, which is a game that I didn’t play. So…maybe?
- Orange – Meh…I’m curious.
General thoughts – A decent number of manga adaptations that I recognize this season, which makes things fun. I feel like there are a lot more “safe” series this season…where I know enough going in that I feel comfortable watching them. Sigh…I guess I need to take some risks and choose some unknowns, do I?
Probably covered – ReLIFE
Very likely to watch and might be covered – Tales of Zestiria the X, Taboo Tattoo, Planetarian, 91 Days, Orange
Might be watched, but probably won’t be covered – Time Travel Shoujo, Handa-kun, Shokugeki no Souma S2, Mob Psycho 100, New Game
