Oh. We don't have any sports anime this season?


The closest thing to a sports anime this season seems to be bakuon!! which is all about driving and racing mortorcycles by the looks of it.


Ugh. The plot sounds so dumb. And seinen and SoL? Not my type. Thanks anyway

Apr 2, 2016 3:03 AM by takame_kyan

Hope this spring will be better than the last year.

Ushio & Tora is gonna be sequel of the season, and I'm excited for Kyoukai no Rinne as well.

Lots of good stuff this season. Really excited for Boku no Hero Academia, Bungou Stray Dogs, Joker Game, Macross Delta, Sakamoto desu ga? and Flying Witch. All the original series such as Mayoiga and Kiznaiver look really good as well. Everything else will be fun to check out as well :)

I think this season is packed-

Ace Attorney- Hell yeah I'll give this a shot, the game was hella fun.
Terraformars 2- Season 1 and the OVAs were awesome. Love this show. I don't know why people hate on this show.
Joker Game- I'm excited to see a spy show and it kind of reminds me of Baccano which was baller.
Stray Dogs- It's studio bones. It looks great. It's going to be good.

I would rather kill myself than watch Asterisk War. Hero Academia looks dumb. Don't care at all about the Attack on Titan knock off or the other stuff.

Mar 24, 2016 3:00 PM by DaikiClub

Woowww... this season is full of adaptions!! Really looking 4ward to lots of series'!!

So is anyone else just a bit frightened at how quickly asterisk got a second season? I know it was sweet but what has it been 2 anime seasons since e forest season came out damn just when I thought the noragami second season came out fast but this isridiculous. Lol I've never seen a new season pushed through so quickly before.
The second season was announced even before the first season start.

Joker's Game
Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress
Ace Attorney

try out:
Endride
Mayoiga
Seisen Cerberus: Ryuukoku no Fatalités
Re: Life in a different world from zero

Don't think I will watch the anime of Sakamoto, although the manga is quite entertaining and I'm sure a lot of people will like it (manga is enough for me).
Finally a great season for me, so much fantasy-ish stuff that looks good 8)
Also, I will watch the Concrete Revolutio stuff when I'm finally caught up... which will take a while, knowing my watching speed atm (=non-existant, lol)

Mar 22, 2016 1:56 AM by Vanessa

Wow Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Diamond Is Unbreakable is being released sooner than I thought! I can't wait to watch it even though my favorite character's dead. R.I.P. in pieces Dio ;(

Mar 21, 2016 9:19 PM by TheChaoticTyrant

Hm, I noticed I want to watch a lot of stuff, don't know if I will have time.

Will watch:
Kagewani: Shou - The first season was nice enough
Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Crystal Season III: Oh well, I watched the first season and it was kinda bad, but, S and Super S were my favorite seasons...I will probably watch it untill Stars anyway.
Hakuouki: Otogisoushi - It is short and it is Hakuouki
Bungou Stray Dogs - Seems good! Bishounens! yaay
Joker Game - Seems really really nice. Hope it is really gonna be good!

Will try:
Mayoiga - Seems interesting, but it has that weird "flop" vibe. Let's wish the best!
Unhappy♪ - My moe pick. I liked the fact that they are unlucky. Hope Seems fun
Uchuu Patrol Luluca - Seems cute and it is short, why not
Gyakuten Saiban - I didn't play the games, so maybe it is gonna be interesting to see what everyone was talking about
Kuma Miko - Seems cuuuute, DON'T KILL THE BEAR PLS
12-sai.: Chicchana Mune no Tokimeki - Maybe it is gonna be interesting. I had to teach kids for one year for college, so I like to watch this type of shows...
Sakamoto desu ga? - I saw some recommendations saying this is funny
Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge - I'm curious about this one
Flying Witch - Nice slice of life?
Big Order (TV) - Let's see. I liked Mirai Nikki , so

Mar 21, 2016 1:51 PM by taynis

Defo looks the part, looking forward to the start

Like always steering clear of Jump battles and mechas

Mayoiga feels good, Diomedia being the unsettling part
Lots of watchable SOL it seems, loving it
