Hello, I'll look into it and update the thread if necessary since neither the database nor the official site has been updated with that information. Thanks for pointing it out!

Edit: Will leave it as is until there is enough confirmation from official sources to update the database with! Thread updated!

Umm for natsume it should air on the 11th according to this twitter news i saw.
Source https://twitter.com/LiveChart_me/status/841451412454166528

So if its correct info guess you can add that date for it @Snow

The first PV for I-Do made me want to watch it. This new one was an instant turnoff.

Looking forward to all the sequels like Natsume Yuujinchou season 6th season, Attack on Titan season 2, and Starmyu season 2. The only new anime that seem the most interesting to me and the ones I'll most likely keep up with are Oushitsu Kyoushi Haine, Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii desu ka?, and Atom: The Beginning. Anything else that catches my eye and has good reviews/ratings I might just marathon later on.

Here is PV for Souryo to Majiwaru Shikiyoku no Yoru ni... :

Mar 18, 4:58 AM by Baka_Debakar

April 1st is going to be one hell of a day with Attack on Titan and My Hero Academia

Mar 18, 12:21 AM by sim0n2170

Snk, BnHA and Re:creators Saturdays, jesus.
Thank god, because of the time zone, Shingeki no Bahamut is during Friday instead of Saturday because that would be overkill.

Mar 17, 10:11 PM by DatRandomDude

Looks like an extremely strong season, especially for sequels.

Most excited for Rage of Bahamut season 2

Mar 17, 9:59 PM by eXtacy67

Literally two thirds of what I'm waiting for the most is coming out the 1st.

Mar 17, 4:00 PM by Sapewloth

SnK2 and Boku no Hero2, obviously. Sakurada and Zero seems interesting though hope it would be good!

Mar 17, 7:58 AM by Mariecat1

Bleh. Boring looking season. Only watching SnK, Boku no Hero Academia, and Kabuki to start. A few seasons behind on Natsume sadly, which I already know will be my favorite from that list once I get to it.

Mar 17, 4:09 AM by PaladinAlchemist

Holy crap it's spring already? Time just seems to go by so fast now. I guess I'm not gonna get as bored with new animes.

Mar 17, 12:05 AM by Jazzyforcefield

I wonder when SukaSuka PV will come out, one of the main series without a PV yet.

Spring looks pretty good this year in particular the sequels like My Hero Academia, SnK 2, Uchouten Kazoku 2, etc. I'm also looking forward to Kabukibu!, Sakura Quest, Sakurada Reset, Alice to Zouroku, and Zero kara Hajimeru Mahou no Shou.

Mar 16, 9:50 PM by Stark700

snk, atom (huge astro boy here) bnha, and of course that horror anime, cant remember its name

Mar 16, 9:48 PM by LogFront

I actually don't feel like watching SNK S2 while airing - but it's probably difficult to avoid spoilers online so yeah I might just watch it.

Interested in 5 of the coming up shows - especially "Alice to Zouroku" and "Zero kara Hajimeru Mahou no Shou" [But it's a ln adaptation - so I might end up being disappointed.]
As for the seuquels "Natsume Yuujinchou" & "Uchouten Kazoku" are shows I'm really looking forward to.

Mar 16, 8:57 PM by cure_potato

I'm probably going to be watching about 30 of these...Really excited for this season

Mar 16, 8:51 PM by Tokoya

The only sequel that I can actually watch would be SnK 2 but even I have vague memories of it. I still need to catch up with season 1 of SnB and BnH.

Don't know about rest. Some people here seem to be hyping Sakurada Reset. Maybe I will have a look.

Quan Zhi Gao Shou's PV

Mar 16, 7:36 PM by Mirorin

So far for this season I have 29 (had to edit this after thinking of picking 3 more), compared to last season which I had around 10 or 11 titles in total from the lineup (because I don't wanna get into a burnout).

It looks very hyped that's for sure. :T
