Part 3 features the new series by Oreimo’s Tsukasa Fushimi, Eromanga Sensei, and so by default is the worst part of the preview guide. Fortunately it also features the return The Eccentric Family, which I must admit has been sitting at the top of my backlog for quite some time. There’s also an unusually high amount shows coming back this season that we we wouldn’t normally cover, so let us know if we are missing out on anything good.
Part 2 of our season guide is headlined by the return of another GLORIO favorite, Rage of Bahamut. Unfortunately the rest of this block is looking a bit bland, and I’m predicting the super meta Re:Creators is going to be a big hit for better or worse. But hey, half the fun of a new anime season is finding a show that proves us wrong. Let us know what you plan on checking out.
Another season is almost in the books and once again it’s time to look ahead at new shows. Spring is loaded with returning favorites, so many that I will actually post a list of the ones we are not planning to cover in part 3 of the guide. As for our first part, it’s headlined by the return of GLORIO favorite My Hero Academia. You can also join me in wondering if Akashic Records of Bastard Magic Instructor is the worst title of all time, for anything. Enjoy!
Part 1 of our winter preview guide was pretty bleak and part 2 is not much better. Fortunately there are some glimmers of hope. The most notable is the return Little Witch Academia, Trigger’s magical OVA series now formatted for TV. Aqua tells me Scum’s Wish is also good if you like horrible people doing horrible things, but if that turns out feel free to place 100% of the blame on him. Let us know if anything else looks interesting to you, brave readers, and we’ll see you soon with our first looks in the next few days.
Let’s do a little math. 2016 in general = bad. 2016 anime = good. Using that formula and checking out next season’s shows, 2017 is looking to be a really good year. There will be some good continuing shows a few things that don’t look embarassingly bad, but as a whole the batch of new shows is looking rough. Still, it is our duty to carry on and sort through the trash so you don’t have to, and we always manage to find a few surprises. Take a look at part 1 of our Winter preview guide and let us know if you agree.
We’ve saved the best for last as the third part of our guide seems to have the most interesting looking shows. I’ve got my eye on wacky musical comedy Classicaloid as it seems to fit my personal tastes rather well, but other shows to watch like new Shaft joint March Comes in Like a Lion and MAPPA’s latest, Yuri!!! On ICE, top off a list that seems to have a lot less duds than the previous two.
Part 2 of our Fall guide features Sound! Euphonium season 2, which is possibly the most anticipated show of the season. As for the rest, it’s the usual mixed bag of sex and violence and dumb comedy, but there may be a few hidden gems lurking in this batch. No, I’m not talking about Keijo!!!!! Hip Flip Girl, at least I don’t think so…
