What are your thoughts about Tales of Zestiria the X?

I'm hyped for... nothing. Nothing catches my eye. Sequels everywhere plus some shitty VN adaptions.

I'll try ACCA, Kuzu no Honkai and maybe some guilty pleasure like Urara. There's just no potential for more than three shows max.

You should give Little Witch Academia a chance, the short film was awesome. Im so hard for the new series

Dec 30, 2016 7:43 AM by Neramore

I played Akiba Strip a while ago, im so glad they're going to animate it. Though studio Gonzo was a weird choice, I think a studio like Tigger would have been perfect for this anime. Though, i guess they're busy with witch academia

Dec 30, 2016 7:41 AM by Neramore

honestly im going to watch all of them

for opening :
gintama
masamune-kun
konosuba
ao no exorcist

Dec 27, 2016 6:55 AM by Natsumi_Chai

Feeling extremely lazy so I will list what I'm going to watch

(And here we go again with the entire "Watching shit ton schedule" all over again)



I didn't added Gintama here since this was old but, Gintama is part of the list.

Dec 26, 2016 5:46 PM by Wasshio

Honestly, I couldn't get through the PV for Youjo Senki without giggling a little bit. It looks a little ridiculous.
I will probably watch a few, doesn't look like the most amazing season in my opinion but I hope that will change while watching these. :)

Dec 26, 2016 6:56 AM by douevenliftbruh

Doesn't seem like an interesting season for me, sadly. However, I plan to watch Gintama eventually and then follow up on Gintama's new season.

Dec 20, 2016 2:34 AM by Geekwoglasses

This seems to be my breakdown of what days my shows air.

Sunday - 2
Monday - 0
Tuseday - 0
Wednesday - 2
Thursday - 2
Friday - 1
Saturday - 3

So I might just try out ACCA anyways since I currently have nothing on Tuesday.

Dec 19, 2016 11:36 AM by Hibbington

Mmmmm Little Witch Academia, but, where's Imaishi?, Rakugo will be the best show of the season... Again...

Dec 19, 2016 7:45 AM by jerat

This season does look more promising than this year winter season. I could be picking up 5+ anime this season.

Dec 18, 2016 8:19 PM by keragamming

As far as this list goes, it looks like I'm going to be watching 9 shows so far. I think it's looking pretty good. Excited for Konosuba 2, pretty hyped. Super Lovers is right up there for me, as well.

On a sort of related note, when will we find out who's licensing things?

Dec 18, 2016 7:55 AM by VampireXxBrianna

Man so many interesting shows that I'm going to PTW though ehh still needs to binge the remaining shows from Fall 2016 for me to catch up to Winter

Konosuba is a must

Handshakers and that Dragon SOL by KyoAni interest me for some reason

And Gintama new season deym must need to catch up to this series while I still can

Dec 17, 2016 8:48 AM by Mizunashi

Will watch
