Most of these shows look good. I will watch Boku no Hero Academia 2, Ao no Exorcist, Tales of Zesteria 2, little Witch Academia, Chain Chronicle, Mahoutsukai no Yome 2nd ova, ēlDLIVE, gundam orign 5, Danganronpa 2.5 and maybe Seikaisuru Kado

BnHA 2, Hell Yeah! That PV was so Hype, I can't wait. Hopefully it's 2 cour this time around given that they teased a certain someone at the end of the first season.

Also Yowamushi: New Generation looks awesome, Can't wait for that as well.

Wonder if we'll get more Berseria content in ToZ 2.

I would be hyped by Kizu III... if I would have watched the second movie already :/ Still looks great as hell.

Boku no Hero Academia 2 looks really good visually. Hope it will be as good as the first season.

I would have liked to see more of the Tales of Zestiria 2 PV, but at least FLOW's song sounded cool.

Already know Kizu is going to be amazing. Little Witch Academia I'm reeeeally hoping for, I just saw the movie and loved it, very cute, fun, amazing animation. The only thing I'm scared of is the TV series having watered down visuals since half the fun of the movie was how expressive it was visually.

Little Witch Academia and The Ancient Magus' Bride please come sooner. Little Witch Academia is going to be the bomb, you've heard it here first. I have not been this excited for new releases since Spring 2016.

In general, it looks like 2017 is going to be a rocking year. Lots of other titles I'm looking forward to.

Damn these are a lot of PVs to go and see xD But I've seen few. Pretty hyped for Tales of Zestiria 2, Boku no Hero Academia 2, Ao no Exorcist 2, etc.

Very hyped for Little Witch Academia (TV). I hope it'll be like the first movie because that was quite the entertainment.

Boku no Hero Academia S2 is cool as well.

Dec 4, 2016 4:58 PM by Stark700

Seikaisuru Kado could be pretty kewl, most of the time Toei is at their best when its little 1-cour animes like Kyousou Giga, Mononoke and Kuuchuu Buranko

Blue Exorcist, boku no hero academia, kizumonogatari hype.

Also that Lupin the IIIrd PV really makes me want to give a shot to the franchise one day !

Tales of Zestiria 2 and elDLIVE will be boring as shit
