Joker Game looks very interesting.

I should make a proper review of this somewhere else, but I'll put it here instead because I'm lazy, and I don't know how. Sorry for the rants.

TL;DR Just watch Joker Game.

Amaama to Inazuma - Might not be a bad comedy. I like the voice actor (Its the same from Barakamon, which has a similar cast of characters judging from this PV).
Worth Watching: 6/10

Endride - No. Doesn't make sense from the description. the PV itself doesn't explain half of what's going on (or I'm just bad at reading covers), and it appears as confusing as Bubuki Buranki. I mean, even Concrete Revolutio plot was much easier to understand, just from episode one! Unless you like No. 6, I don't see much to this.
Worth Watching: 4/10

Gakusen Toshi Asterisk 2nd Season - Watched the first season, be a good sport and watch this season too. It has more action IIRC, and the OP doesn't seem as bad. If you've never watched Season one, and don't like cheesy harem, don't watch this. (Heck, 2015 has better options. And there's also Hundred to fill your ecchi/harem needs.)
BTW A-1 Pictures doesn't make action anime as awesome as the others. I didn't like SAO S1 until I watched it with fresh eyes (in which case, I burned my eyes again watching it from my anime club.)
Worth Watching: 6/10

Joker Game - Unless you can't handle blood, gore, or long mystery shows, don't watch it. Everyone else, is welcome to try and gamble with the joker in something I expect to believe a success similar to Psycho-Pass (1st season. 2nd season was a train wreck to me when compared.)
Worth Watching: 9/10

Kiznaiver - I learn nothing from this, but the description says this might be interesting. It reminds me of Kokoro Connect. Studio Trigger also makes nice visuals, like Kill la Kill and ... not much else.
Worth Watching: 7/10

Onigiri - Watching this because I played a bit. Basically, don't watch a video game turned anime, because 60% (I'm guessing) suck like shit. Literally. I dropped some, else never picked any up because of it. I'm literally crossing my fingers hoping this is slightly okay. Plus, simple/dumb harem is nice to kill time/yourself.
BTW, the last good one I remember was God Eater, which wasn't as good throughout the entire season.
Worth Watching: 4/10

Popin Q - I didn't get the PV. The synopsis says a whole 'nother story. All I'll say is, I'll give it a shot (and shoot back a 6/10 for wtfits). If you love Uta no Prince Sama (or something close to it) and want them guys to be girls while dancing, here's your anime..........enjoy. (It also says deep relationship building is included)
Worth Watching: 6/10

Well...I guess 2016 might be a year full of uninteresting awesome anime. Time to go back and watch 2015 stuff. Sorry for this long post.

Joker Game definitively. Just hearing the seiyuu made me so excited !!!!

Amaama to Inazuma the cutness ! I'm quite sure it will be good ^^

Kiznaiver couldn't watch the video either :/

Idk 'bout everyone else but Endride PV looks good to me. I'll be sure watching the anime.

Gakusen Toshi Asterisk 2nd Season
Can't wait for it :D

Joker Game

Not Fucking Available in my COUNTRY!!!!
Aniplex is shit!!!!!!!!!!!!

looking foward to it :D
i didn't play the game before but i knew the game and it was a really good game.

Popin Q
i'm not gonna talk bad about the PV because there is only a girl screaming in the PV, and i don't want to say "that is fucking shit" i like the story after reading the synopsis, the Visual Key looks great too imo, so i'm looking foward to it but WTF WITH THAT PV. A girl just screamed and that's the end LOL!

Gakusen Toshi Asterisk 2nd Season, Joker Game and Entride look good to me

Mar 13, 4:05 PM by thepath

Ehh, Endride looks boring, how sad.. Was expecting more from Joker Game.

Mar 13, 3:42 PM by Katsu-kun

Entride looks alright and Joker Game still looks impressive. Still, the best PV I've seen this week was Swagamoto Sakamoto desu ga?

Mar 13, 3:40 PM by GoldenDevilGamer

The Amaama to Inazuma PV must be one of the cutest things I've seen this year so far. Joker Game looks nice too.
