A bunch of weirdo high school girls are so unlucky that they have to be put in a special class to be rehabilitated. One of them gets punched by a cat. I guess it’s kind of fun?
Haru visits his birth mother who lives in the Canadian wilderness and discovers she has taken in an orphan named Ren. Tasked with “taming” the wild and anti-social boy, Haru immediately takes him under his wing.
Impurities from the parallel world of Magano have been slipping into the real world and only powerful exorcists can stop them. Two of these exorcists meet seemingly by chance – a boy who has given up on his training and a girl who has sworn to destroy every last impurity in Magano.
Our final round of previews features the much hyped Trigger original Kiznaiver, some sleepy slice of life shows, and a bus tour gone wrong that sounds like the anime equivalent of Lost. We even have Dogakobo’s next potential successor to Love Lab, although several years later I know better than to get my hopes up for that.
Part 2 of our guide features some potential big hits in the visually stunning Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress and the shonen mass appeal of Twin Star Exorcists. Throw in some super cool pre-war era style with Joker Game, a healthy dose of urban fantasy with Bungou Stray Dogs, and some absurdist comedy with Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto, and this season is looking pretty good… well, except for Netoge, which could turn out to be one of the worst show in years.
A little later than usual, but it’s time once again to check out the hot new shows for next season. Winter had the strongest batch of shows overall that we’ve seen in a long time, so Spring 2016 has some big shoes to fill. Part 1 of our guide gets us off to a good start with the return of Jojo and the adaptation of popular manga My Hero Academia. Macross Delta is also totally happening this time, I promise.
