- Rewrite - From the makers of grisaia adaptations! Possibly 13 episodes! Anime original route! Gotta experience the trainwreck and key fanbase salt. I guess if you rip off FSN plot elements, you end up getting its adaptation quality too :^)


Looks like you don't read much about news and stuff, no worries tho, i gotchu:

https://kagari.moe/

Check the Info Board thing and you'll see that this isn't gonna turn out into another Grisaia "trainwreck"

Also it has been said already by the Key's CEO that the anime will be longer than Little Busters: https://twitter.com/vavasyatyou/status/726474866782674944

I must say, this last season wasn't half bad. Spring 2016 was probably the last decent season (for me) in nearly a year or so. Summer 2016 does not look as good, but there are several series I will be watching.

Will Watch:

Berserk (CGI is bad, they're most likely jumping straight to the Conviction arc and skipping/rushing the Black Swordsman arc, and no Hirasawa soundtrack, yet will still be better than everything else new this season.)

91 Days (This is the series this season with the most potential. It could be a pretty cool mafia/revenge story, or completely stupid. The setting is a plus and it does give a similar feel to Joker Game, and contrary to many, I thought Joker Game was good at what it was trying to do.)

Days (Mappa does soccer. I wasn't a big fan of Overdrive, but I'm at least interested to see what the creator has come up with this time.)

Battery (Noitamina does baseball. I'm pretty sure this is the first baseball anime to air in that timeslot, surprised it took so long.)

Active Raid 2nd Season (It was dumb, but it was a decent time waster.)


Possibility:

Mob Psycho (OPM, was entertaining. This one I'm not sold on.)


Leftovers:

JoJo Part 4 (The only show I eagerly look forward to each week.)

Macross Delta (It's a decent entry into the franchise.)

Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Re:0096 (Watching this has given me a new, more positive, perspective on Gundam Unicorn.)

I'm going to be watching 9 anime this season as below, but may end up dropping a few as always. Love Live is obviously my most anticipated, and is also the case for many male AND female fans in Japan. Rewrite, I hope will not turn out like the underwhelming anime adaptation of Little Busters!/Refrain. D.Gray-man Hallow, is hard to gauge, since D.Gray-man last aired so many years ago. Shokugeki no Souma, just because i've read a significant portion of the manga so far. Prisma☆Illya, since it was somewhat entertaining (anime is an entertainment medium after all). All the others seemed interesting based on their PVs, so i'll at least try them.

● Love Live! Sunshine!!
● Rewrite
● Qualidea Code
● D.Gray-man Hallow
● New Game!
● Shokugeki no Souma Ni no Sara
● Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 3rei!!
● Ange Vierge
● Masou Gakuen HxH

However, i'm more interested in whether any anime can snatch best selling anime of Summer 2016 and also best selling anime of 2016 from Love Live! SunShine!!. I think it would take a surprise mega-hit of Madoka/Osomatsu-san level to do such a thing, or for SunShine!! to fail in entertaining watchers and compelling them to re-watch the anime on BD.

I'm also interested in seeing just how much of a boost in sales SunShine!! gets from the anime, because its CD sales aren't exactly what i'd expect from Love Live! However, I gotta give credit to Aqours for achieving 70,000+ Oricon sales as a rookie seiyuu group, because even Idolmaster hasn't done that before.

Yes you are. You know that 8BIT wasn't responsible for what happened to Grisaia's adaptation, right? You know that it was Frontier's job to provide the necessary budged for a decent lenght of episodes, right? Come on, this is basic knowledge.

And i find interesting how people like to forget how amazing was Grisaia's animation and the great pacing that the first episodes had. Also its funny how Grisaia no Rakuen and Meikyuu's adaptations worked pretty decently, i wonder why? Maybe it has something to do with the original material and a good schedule? hm..

Tensho worked on the visual novel already and this time he's getting enough budged from Aniplex and Key to work with it.

But you're probably just a hater so i don't even know why I'm wasting my time here, meh.

I tried at least, cya.

And you do know that 8bit has plenty of other shows to show how great they are right?

"masterpieces" like Infinite Stratos, Absolute Duo, Comet Lucifer, Aquarion Evol, Shounen Maid, etc. Oh and let's not forget them having their start of quality with very rapey gross hentai.

8bit does not have a single decent work under their belt and all of their works are plagued with the same problems.


And i find interesting how people like to forget how amazing was Grisaia's animation and the great pacing that the first episodes had.

You must be joking. The main complaint for grisaia even before it became clear that the pacing was a mess, was that it looked like an anime from ~2004. The animation was stiff, overall background design and everything was very simplistic. It was a very clearly low-budget adaptation

And I am still laughing at that "good pacing" bit considering even Grisaia's first episodes already removed the only real bits of MC's characterization(his stories), making him into even more of a self insert than he originally was.

Also its funny how Grisaia no Rakuen and Meikyuu's adaptations worked pretty decently

Those adaptations were salvageable. But nowhere near good. Better pacing does not insta-mean better show. The animation was still meh, the directing was still meh, the soundtrack was still meh - Most aspects of production were meh, actually. It lacked creativity and was a very dry work. I mean the source material is nothing to write home about already, but the adaptations failed to capture whatever gravitas the source had and felt extremely by the book and soulless.


Tensho worked on the visual novel already and this time he's getting enough budged from Aniplex and Key to work with it.

Having Aniplex involved does not bode well for anything as they are very intrusive. Aniplex is quite predatory in their business practices.
Having original author involved does not mean the adaptation will be any good. Ex: FSN.

God damn there's so much shit...

Choo choo get on the hype train motherfuckers:
-Shokugeki no Souma S2
-Love Live! Sunshine!!

Definitely watching:
-B-Project: Kodoku*Ambitious
-Rewrite
-Tsukiuta.

Maybe:
-Cheer Danshi!!
-ReLIFE
-Orange

Was going to watch, but it turns out they're shorts so fuck off:
-Fudanshi Koukou Seikatsu
-Saiki Kusuo no Ψ Nan

I was having a bit of a dilemma because there's so much shit, but two of the things I'm interested in are shorts so I'm gonna skip them. I can deal with 5 series, maybe 6 depending on how Cheer Danshi!! is.

Here are my picks and brief thoughts/expectations:

NEW:

1.) Alderamin on the Sky - I read some of the manga for this awhile back. I liked it, but a few characters really bugged me so I put it on hold. I did read spoilers that interested me about later events but the anime may not get to that point.

2.) Amaama to Inazuma - A widowed teacher raises his young daughter while learning cooking from a student. The manga is fantastic. Cute, moving, it will be a strong show no doubt. One of two food focused shows this season. Bonus points for casting the young girl who played Naru's best friend Hina in Barakamon as Tsumugi.

3.) Amanchu! - I'm expecting relaxing slice of life goodness here. It looks to be visually stunning as well.

4.) Ange Vierge - Not expecting much from this. Apparently it's card game based, but the cute girls interest me. XD

5.) Bananya - It's a f**king cat/banana hybrid! Anime of the season confirmed! XD

6.) The Disaster of PSI Kusuo Saiki - It took a long time for this comedy from Weekly Shonen Jump to get an anime as it has over 150 chapters and is still going. I read the first 30 chapters and...pretty good. I liked the gags involving the mc's parents best of all.

7.) Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma, Season 2 - The season's other cooking show. I enjoyed season one enough to catch up to the manga. I only hope this goes 2 cours like season one did. There's plenty to adapt for it.

8.) Handa-kun - The prequel to my pick for 2014's best anime, Barakamon. We follow handsome, young calligrapher Seishu Handa in High School, before he met Naru and the other island dwellers. And there in lies this prequel begun after the original's biggest weakness: No Naru. I'm sure it will still be good. I've read a bit of it, but it won't equal Barakamon. Frankly I wish that got a season two instead. There's more than enough material for one.

9.) Hatsukoi Monster - An absurd premise but could be interesting. The art style screams shoujo, which I don't watch very often.

10.) The Heroic Legend of Arslan, Season 2 - Arslan returns this summer for a quick, 8 episode run. Why only 8? The other 4 weeks are reserved for something else which I'll mention below. I enjoyed Arslan when I finally finished it recently, but how much can we get done in just 8 weeks?

11.) Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru! - A school comedy about an art club with hints of romance? Sign me up! XD

12.) Masou Gakuen HxH - Pure ecchi goodness. Fully expect lotsa t and a style fanservice full of raunchy hentai-light scenarios.

13.) New Game! - Cute girls making video games! I'm loving the manga and no doubt will love this.

14.) Orange - I'm watching this acclaimed dramatic series based on hype alone, which concerns me. As does the premise. I hope I enjoy it.

15.) Qualidea Code - An action series involving magic and...yeah. Don't know much about it.

16.) Regalia: The Three Sacred Stars - See above.

17.) ReLIFE - An interesting premise with an annoying twist or two from the 50 or so chapters I read before shelving it. Can the anime reignite my passion for it?

18.) Rewrite - I know little about this aside from what I've read via the fanbase, who reminds me of the fanbase from the Grisaia franchise, which I enjoyed. They seem pumped and expect multiple cours.

19.) Servamp - See my thoughts for Hatsukoi Monster. XD

20.) The Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of Holy War - Sharing it's timeslot with Arslan, the Seven Deadly Sins returns for a quick 4 episode run this August. Why 4? Season one adapted the roughly 100 chapter first arc. Arc 2 isn't done yet as we're only around 75 chapters after that. I've read these anime-only stories will serve as a buffer between the arcs and were written by the author. My opinions on how much I love the first arc and dislike the second arc(especially early on where these episodes will occur chronologically) are well documented. So sadly, excepting any possible Diane x King cuteness, my expectations are tempered for this.

21.) Taboo Tattoo - I read nearly the first dozen manga chapters last year. It was decent, but I felt like it was gonna get worse later on so I shelved it. I intended to read further before the adaptation began but haven't been able to bring myself to do it. Hope the anime can rekindle my interest.

ON-GOING:

1.) Dragon Ball Super
2.) One Piece - the 2 Toei shonen staples.
3.) Twin Star Exorcists

So that's it. 24 shows for me is a lot, though a couple have odd episode counts and some will no doubt be shorts.

looking at you, hitori no shita! the feels inside of the PV make me think of shiki, which is not bad at all.
may the adaptations of many more (non-japanese) web stories - and my hype of them - continue!

Honestly, there isn't too much that stands out this season, but I'm hoping some of these shows really catch me by surprise like Re:Zero and Tanaka-kun have this season, and like Konosuba did in Winter.

At any rate, alongside the continuing Re:Zero, this is what I plan to watch this season:

Friday 1st July: Berserk (wary about the CGI though)
Saturday 2nd July: ReLIFE, Rewrite (it's Key, so of course I'm hyped, especially if it really does end up being longer than Little Busters was)
Sunday 3rd July: Tales of Zestiria the X
Monday 4th July: Orange (read the first chapter of the manga and really enjoyed it, so I have high expectations)
Tuesday 5th July: Amaama to Inazuma (Sweetness and Lightning)
Thursday 7th July: Planetarian (again Key, so I'm extremely hyped, especially with a movie to follow)
Friday 8th July: Handa-kun (will it be as good without Naru?)
Saturday 9th July: 91 Days, Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyou no Alderamin (Alderamin On The Sky; hate those character designs though)
Monday 11th July: Danganronpa 3: The End of Kibougamine Gakuen - Mirai-hen (Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope's Peak Academy: Future Arc; really want to see how this plays out, though where are Togami and Fukawa?)
Sunday 28th August: Nanatsu no Taizai: Seisen no Shirushi (The Seven Deadly Sins: Signs Of Holy War)

So, ignoring Planetarian and The Seven Deadly Sins (considering they're each only 4 or 5 episodes long), this is what my weekly watching schedule will end up looking like:

Monday: Orange, Danganronpa 3: The End of Kibougamine Gakuen - Mirai-hen
Tuesday: Amaama to Inazuma
Wednesday: N/A
Thursday: N/A (just Planetarian for a few weeks at some point)
Friday: Berserk, Handa-kun
Saturday: ReLIFE, Rewrite, 91 Days, Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyou no Alderamin
Sunday: Re:Zero, Tales of Zestiria the X

Doesn't seem too bad, but I'm somewhat irritated that I have nothing on Wednesday or Thursday yet have four shows to watch on Saturdays. Then again, at least on Thursdays there'll be a couple of broadcast dubs to watch, even after the ones for AssClass and Netoge finish.

Most looking forward to Rewrite and Planetarian and least excited for Alderamin from what I'm watching. Also, my gut tells me that 91 Days could easily be a dark horse this season, but I won't get expectations too high. Oh, and I'm not watching Zetsubou-hen as I've never played Danganronpa 2 so I ultimately won't know or care about any of the characters or understand the significance of anything that is happening; it would just be a waste of time.

This season looks very promising, can't wait till July. Definitely going to pick up Shokugeki no Soma, Love Live!, ReLife, and Rewrite, but I'll probably end up watching a lot of the others.

Alright lets do this shit

Will Watch
Berserk:- The manga is a masterpiece, if this anime turns out to be a good adaptation then I might be able to withstand the terrible visuals.

Love Live! Sunshine!! :- More unbelievably stupid and hilarious drama about cute girls wanting to dance for creepy fat otakus!!!, I liked the first love live so I will watch this

ReLIFE :- More hilarious drama, so far so good.

Rewrite :- Best VN I've ever read, I hope and pray that the anime will be good

Shokugeki no Souma: Ni no Sara :- its soma, do I need to say more??

Tales of Zestiria the X :- Mikleo best grill.

New Game! :- Heard some good stuff about it, its Dogakobo so we will have a first episode with amazing animation.

Orange :- I love Hiroshi Hamazaki's directing style and I've heard good stuff about the manga.

Cheer Danshi!! :- it looks good, the dancing is so well animated and it doesn't seem to have any yaoi vibes.

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 3rei!! :- read the manga, my favorite part is obviously 3rei, can't wait for the anime, also judging from the BD listing it will have 12 eps for its first season so I'm hyped.

Amanchu! :- the PV's atmosphere is great and it looks comfy

Battery :- Noitamina/Aniplex, Horou Musuko's character designer, judging from the PV, this show will focus more on the character interactions than baseball itself.

Mob Psycho 100 :- Death Parade's director, Yoshimichi Kameda, Kenji Kawai, thats all I need


Will try

Days (TV) :- it seems like the type of show that will get boring after 3 eps but I might be wrong

Amaama to Inazuma :- it looks nice but I hate energetic kids so I might not like it that much

Servamp: Aoharu x Kikanjuu's director, that show had some good intense moments and great visuals, this show might be at least a good time waster.

Taboo Tattoo: it might be a cool mindless action series. so I will give it a try

Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru! :- looks pretty adorable, I just hope that it won't get boring after the first two episodes

Qualidea Code :- it looks like shit, it will be shit, but I might be wrong, the director of it is a former Madhouse director (he is from the pre-2011 good Madhouse) and he helped with the Hajime no Ippo Anime so this might be a little bit decent.



This summer seems like a pretty okay season with couple of promising series.

WILL WATCH (continuations of anime I watched are included):

  • Amaama to Inazuma (Usagi Drop/Barakamon meets Koufuku Graffiti/Souma. So this will be quite good.)
  • Amanchu! (Because more JC Staff-produced lighthearted slice of life comedy is a nice thing.)
  • Arslan Senki Season 2 (Even though it's 8 episodes, it's still quite good.)
  • Battery (Let's hope noitaminA doesn't disappoint with this one, because Kabaneri, Bokumachi, and their recent anime were quite disappointing.)
  • D.Gray-man Hallow (Even though this one has 13 episodes while the previous one had a huge 103, I just hope that it doesn't rush things too much and that it doesn't suck in quality.)
  • Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 3rei!! (More serious and has less comedy than the previous three seasons, so that's why it's going to be good. And also there will be more yuri.)
  • Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru! (Has the same feel as Nozaki-kun, especially since the main girl has the same voice as Sakura Chiyo.)
  • Love Live!! Sunshine!! (I hope Aqours is just as good as Muse)
  • Mob Psycho 100 (From the creator of OPM, so that's why it's screams HYPE)
  • Momokuri (TV broadcast, subs for the ONA are too slow and low quality so I dropped it)
  • Nanatsu no Taizai: Seisen no Shirushi
  • New Game! (Because more Dogakobo-produced cute girls doing cute things anime is a nice thing. Also, it has Shirobako vibes so it'll be quite enjoyable.)
  • Orange (I heard the manga's pretty good, so this will be good as well)
  • Rewrite (another adaptation of a Key Visual Arts VN, will probably be darker and more tearjerking than their previous works, despite having "comedy" as one of its genres)
  • Saiki Kusuo no Psi Nan (Imagine if Sakamoto had supernatural powers, so this is quite good.)
  • Shokugeki no Souma Season 2 (Because more food porn is delicious.)
  • Show By Rock!! Short!! (Might as well watch this because S2 might come soon with no specific date yet.)



Will give a try (or maybe drop or put on-hold some if it didn't turn out to be good):

  • 91 Days
  • Bananya
  • Berserk (2016 series) (I hope someone does not complain about the CG and instead focus on the blood and the badass swordfights.)
  • Binan Koukou Chikyuu Boueibu Love! Love!
  • Danganronpa 3 (both Future and Despair arcs)
  • Days
  • Fukigen na Mononokean (Good supernatural anime, but I'm concerned it probably will be fujoshi-pandering)
  • Handa-kun (Even though it won't be as good as Barakamon, it's still good to watch.)
  • Masou Gakuen HxH (I hope it doesn't turn out disappointing and mediocre like your typical high school battle action anime.)
  • Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyou no Alderamin (I have mixed feelings for this, but I hope it'll be good as the show progresses. And also, Madhouse has lost its way.)
  • Qualidea Code (I have mixed feelings for this, but I hope it'll be good as the show progresses.)
  • Planetarian (Another Key Visual Arts VN adaptation. I hope this one does not suck.)
  • Regalia: The Three Sacred Stars (Cute girls riding in mechas sure look nice, though.)
  • ReLIFE (Looks similar to Orange to me, but it won't be that good because it'll have some comedy.)
  • Taboo Tattoo (Another battle action anime that would either be a good thing or a bad thing.)


WILL PASS:

  • Ange Vierge (Typical mobile game adaptation crap, but the girls there are quite cute.)
  • B Project (Fujoshi-pandering "male idols" anime)
  • Cheer Danshi (Fujoshi-pandering "cheerleading" anime)
  • Fudanshi (Quite okay, but not my cup of tea, Also, it's a short)
  • Hatsukoi Monster (Fujoshi-pandering "shoujo romance" anime)
  • Hitori no Shita (This one is co-produced by China, so expect cheap animation and mediocre plot.)
  • Mahou Shoujo Naria Girls (This one could be as bad as JK Meshi or Crane Game)
  • Ozmafia!! (Fujoshi-pandering "male idols" anime)
  • RS Keikaku
  • Scared Rider Xechs (Fujoshi-pandering "sci-fi mecha" anime)
  • Servamp (Fujoshi-pandering "vampire" anime)
  • Tales of Zestiria (Ufotable has lost its way, and their adaptation of God Eater was quite meh. Also, any anime adapted by Ufo that isn't Fate/Kara no Kyoukai are mediocre at best.)
  • Time Travel Shoujo (Good premise, but airs on the mornings so it's targeted towards kids)
  • Tsukiuta (Fujoshi-pandering "male idols" anime)


Will continue to watch:

  • Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable
  • Kuromukuro
  • Macross Delta
  • Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu (because there is another cour of Subaru suffering again and again. Also, the twin blue and red hair colored maids (Ram and Rem) are cute and badass.)


Will still watch, but I feel like dropping/putting it on-hold:

  • Sousei no Onmyouji (How did this Studio Pierrot bullsh*t of a manga adaptation got 50 eps when better shounen series like BNHA and D.GM Hallow got 13?!? Also, the action, comedy, and drama scenes look dull to me and Rokuro acts like a jerk a lot.)

The shows I am looking forward to the most are:
Orange, Tales of Zestiria the X and Mob Psycho 100

I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for Rewrite as well.

On top of my list is Shougeki no Soma season 2. The first series was awesome! Give me lots of excitement!

Woah, there are a LOT of shows this season.

Will Be Watching:
-Amanchu! (HYPE)
-Orange (the manga is so good! I hope this anime does it justice.)
-Saiki Kusuo no Ψ Nan (5 minutes a week won't hurt. I feel bad for the fans, though. They've been played.)
-Mob Psycho 100 (I heard this was better than OPM, plus that PV made it look so epic.)
-Love Live Sunshine!! (even if it's looking like Love Live! season one repeated.)

Might Watch:
-ReLIFE (This looks like the comedy version of ERASED.)
-Danganrompa (I haven't touched danganrompa in years, so I'm on the fence.)
-Handa-Kun (the manga is hilarious and if the anime is done right, it could be the best comedy of the year.)

I'll be giving quite a few things a chance this season.

In terms of sequels/spinoffs/prequels, there's Handa-kun, Shokugeki no Souma, Arslan Senki, and Active Raid. 2 being related to shows I've given a 10, and one of my "guilty pleasures" of Winter coming back (Koukaku no Pandora season 2 never). Should be fun.

My most hyped new show is New Game. Cute girls making video games? Count me in! (Especially with Dogakobo involved (who really have like 3 duds but in contrast several very delightful slice of life/comedy titles)) I know people are hyping Amanchu as the Slice of Life of the season, but if this turns out right, it could be the best slice of life of the entire year for me. (Natsume Yuujinchou season 5 excluded (I really should start work on watching the other 3 seasons of that show))

Rewrite worries me a bit. From what I heard, this VN is extremely fucking long. If this is only 12-13 episodes, I'll expect some Charlotte-tier trainwreck-ery (can't find a better term sorry). Oh well, I hope it'll at least look pretty.

Kono Bijitsu or whatever its called (the one about the art club) must at least fulfill one promise. Meet my expectations as a comedic series. Dagashi Kashi in that regard was rather underwhelming to say the least. The only reason I'm bringing this is up is because Feel is working on this.

Servamp only appeals to me because it's a shoujo without any real romance, at least from the looks of it. Should be nice fluff material if nothing else.

Mob Psycho 100 looks to be one of the greats of the season if executed properly. It has all the makings of a thrill-ride in my eyes.

Momokuri looks like a sweet romance. Don't expect nothing amazing from it, but should be decent at least.

Madhouse makes another anime this year, and it looks to be nothing to write home about. I'll give a shot regardless.

Orange looks cute enough.

Qualidea Code is yet another Owari no Seraph/God Eater/Kabaneri/Attack on Titan-esque show. Not likely to enjoy it much, but some of the staff does stand out. (I believe this is the show the author of Oregairu of all things will have a part in)

Regalia is a mecha anime. In terms of recent mechas, the highest rated one on my list (Active Raid I think has that tag on it but it's not even close to mecha in my eyes) is Bubuki Buranki which I gave a 6. Yeah..... It has cute girls at least.

Taboo Tatto has a neat premise, but this could be a trainwreck if put into the wrong hands.

Tales of Zestria should at least look really pretty. Might be a good time waster, but in terms of story and characters it'll likely be a 5/10 show at best.

Time Travel Shoujo is interesting in being an educational series (and likely not going to have any weird shit like with Bakuon or Dagashi Kashi), but chances are this won't get any remotely good subs available to it.

ReLife has a great premise. I hope it builds on that. Heard the manga is good so that at least should be a good sign. TMS Entertainment animated one of my favorite shows from last season (Bakuon) in addition to a surprisingly good harem (Jitsu wa Watashi wa). Should be one of my favorites this season.

Naria Girls looks to be a nice time-waster. Likely to be a short though.

Hatsukoi Monster has an admittedly interesting, albeit kind of creepy in hindsight, premise. That's all I need to say about it.

Battery's a light novel adaptation about Sports which you never really see. Should be really interesting.

Binan Kokou is also a sequel, but I sort of question why it got a sequel to begin with (wasn't even announced as split-cour like Active Raid either). Either way, season 1 was decent at least so this shouldn't be too bad.

91Days looks extremely fucking interesting. I know I used that term a lot, but this contains several elements not seen in many anime nowadays. Could be great, could be mediocre at best. Who knows?

Amaama is another TMS show that looks to be really cute if nothing else.

Amanchu is what's being hyped as the slice-of-life of the season, but upon first glance doesn't look TOO amazing. But who knows, I could be wrong.

Saiki looks weird, but could be really fun.

DAYS is a sports anime with MAPPA's name on it. MAPPA's a studio that likes to try things not often seen nowadays. (They brought an obscure 90's shounen back from the dead for fucks sake; And had a show about a guy who destroys the earth when he gets horny or something like that)

Ange Vierge has cute girls. That's the only reason I'm bothering with this.

There will be a few I pass on. (That one with the talking fart for sure; And quite a few bishie crapfests that I don't care much for) But overall, its a nice line-up to say the least.

It won't be.

Key's CEO already said that it will be longer than Little Busters (which had 39 episodes without counting the ovas):

And the first episode will be 1 hour long.

He only said that "it will be a little bit long" he didn't compare Rewrite's length to LB's length, we've talked about this many times...

Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 3rei!! - (Really looking forward for 3rei, especially this op shirou.)

91 Days - (Another mystery eh.)
Berserk - (Seems like this one got positive feedback.)
Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru! - (Nice romcom here.)
Orange - (No reason, really.)
ReLIFE - (Already read the manga, and it was good. Might watch for time-killing reason)
Rewrite - (Hype? Never play any VN though, will try.)

I have my eyes on a few big ones (or at least they look promising to me) :D I think Shokugeki no Soma 2, ReLife and Orange are worth checking out :)

Well, this season looks promising, but I can't say if it will be good. I was busy so I couldn't watch anime and follow the news in anime community, so I am not that well-awared of this upcoming anime, so most of them I am gonna try not knowing what to expect.

I am hyped up for:

- Shokugeki no Souma: Ni no Sara
- 91 Days
- Mob Psycho 100
- Orange


I am gonna try these series:

- Re:LIFE
- Rewrite
- Arslan Senki S2 (I actually didn't watch first season, but I'm gonna catch up)
- Tales of Zestiria X
- Handa-kun
- Berserk (2016)
- Battery
- Days
- Fukigen na Mononokean
- Amanchu
- D.Gray-man Hallow (also didn't watch s1)
- Nanatsu no Taizai (I am kinda disappointed that they didn't actually make season 2, but whatever, more Nanatsu no Taizai content xD)

The TV version of Momokuri wasn't included on this list. I think it started on July 1st.

What an awful season. Literally only one decent show and thats Mob Psycho. No wonder people are saying anime is going downhill.
