might be garbage, still better than any other anime airing at summer :) except monogatari, which is a sequel, and a movie, not a TV anime.


Boku no Hero Academia, Re:creator, Knight's & Magic, Fate/Apocrypha, Symphogear AXZ, are all better than boruto


boku no overrated generic shounen, and another shitty fate is not even close to boruto

Jun 29, 6:27 AM by ImAWeebUwU

I will be watching these

Hina Logi: From Luck & Logic (1st episode already aired, and I will watch it because of the cute girls)
Fate/Apocrypha (I'm huge fate fan, and this will be good for sure)
Knight's & Magic
Senki Zesshou Symphogear AXZ
Skirt no Naka wa Kedamono Deshita.
Netsuzou TRap
Shoukoku no Altair
Jikan no Shihaisha
Princess Principal
Hajimete no Gal
Jigoku Shoujo: Yoi no Togi

Shows that I'm might watch depending on how good early episodes

- Kakegurui (PV looks good, high chance that I will watch it)
-Battle Girl High School: Battle Girl Project (cute girls with action, high chance will watch)
-Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun (look like Sakamoto, 50% chance that I will watch)
- Isekai Shokudo
-Nana Maru San Batsu
-Ballroom e Youkoso (I'll just watch 1st epsiode to see what is the hype about this aniem)
-Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni (if it have enough sexual fanservice then I will watch it)
-Nora to Oujo to Noraneko Heart (short echii anime, I will probably watch it)
-THE REFLECTION ( I will watch depending on how good the plot/action)
-Katsugeki/Touken Ranbu (I hope it is noting like the boring gay show called Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru)
-Made in Abyss
- Saiyuuki Reload Blast (did not like the 1st season)
-Action Heroine Cheer Fruits


Shows that I will probably not bother to try

- Dive!! (i hope who made this show get bankrupt. Keijo!!! is miles better than gay shows like Free and Dive)

I finished reading the last released chapter of the kakegurui manga not too long ago and I absolutely love it. So happy to see it getting an adaptation

Jun 28, 7:20 AM by Ceptico

I'm sad when I see animes which are the most in ptw. :(
Ballroom 11th, Made in Abyss 17th, Altair 18th and you have lots of random slice of life before them. :(

I read Ballroom it's probably one of the better manga I've ever read, Altair is renowned etc... , no one enquire about what seems good or not ? :/

Jun 28, 6:25 AM by HaarWyvern

I plan on watching Katsugeki/Touken Ranbu ( since its the anime I been waiting for since 2016 ) but maybe not right away ill probably catch up on it when the character I'm watching it for appears ( depends though we'll see and I'll also be watching Kakegurui because I've been hyped up for it. It looks interesting. Not very interested in the other shows airing- except maybe the new Hell Girl since i watched the first few seasons but im not sure why theyre bringing it back or if itll even be good so I'll wait for other peoples opinions on that and the other animes when they're airing before I go and watch them. For now, though I'll just watch Katsugeki and Kakegurui.

It shows the correct PV for me.

It happens sometimes that PV would show the wrong one even though the bbcode is correct. The second time you load will be showing the correct video.


That's odd. Never mind then.

@Snow

Change 'Katsugeki/Touken Ranbu' PV, for some reason it's a '18if' PV..

Jun 23, 7:54 AM by Katsu-kun

Off-topic but it's been a long time since I visited a Seasonal Anime Preview from MAL and this list is very organized. I don't remember it being this organized. Great job whoever made this list..

Now, on to the topic. Spring is (was) such a strong season so looking at this list, it does feel a bit underwhelming but I don't think this is going to be a disappointing season.

Shows I'm looking forward to
-Owarimonogatari 2nd Season (It'd be a crime against humanity if you skip this shit)
-New Game 2nd Season (Big fan of the series so I'm excited for this one)
-Katsugeki/Touken Ranbu (It's by ufotable. 'Nuff said)
-Kakegurui (Damn, Mystery and Psychological? Potential Anime of the Season right here folks)
-Fate/Apocrypha (Do I even need to explain?)

Shows I'm willing to give a try
-Youkoso Jitsuryoku (Potential Romance Anime of the Season?)
-Isekai Shokudou (Looks fun...I'm going to give this a try)
-Made in Abyss (Look at them cartoonish style...Looks interesting. Also, someone told me that it's going to turn dark)

Thank God, there's two 2 cour series that I'm watching or else this would have become one of the weakest seasons ever.

-Touken Ranbu
-Youkai Apartment
-Saiyuki Reload Blast
-Dive
-Made in Abyss
-Shoukoku no Altair
-Ballroom e Youkoso

Stuff I'm going to try the first episode to see if imma continue:

-Nana Maru San Batsu
-Princess Principal
-Isekai Smartphone
-The Reflection
-Jinkan no Shihaisha

Very excited for hell girl ^^

There are always people every season that say this season will be garbage or the worst season. Kind of a pointless comment to be honest when no one knows anything about any of the new shows being aired. Even if you have read the source material you don't know how good the adaptation will be. Those comments can't be backed up with any sort of evidence so they are predictions at best.

On a more positive note I am looking forward too the following shows the most.
-Kakegurui - I loved Kaiji and you don't see a lot of gambling anime nowadays.

-Fate/Apocrypha - Could be anything from bad to great but I like Fate so the name itself makes it worth giving a shot.

-Touken Ranbu - I love my sword fights and Ufotable shows always look good. I just hope it turns out better than Tales of Zestiria though. The ending episodes of that show were god awful.

-Made in Abyss - This is my dark horse. Looks deceivingly like a kids show but I get the feeling this show will feed the sense of wonder and be a lot more fun than it looks.

I am trying out more than this but these are the ones that stand out to me the most. There are also a lot more leftovers than usual of which Boku no Hero, Shingeki no Bahamut, and Re: Creators are all fantastic imo. So I predict this Summer season will at least be good but maybe not as good as this Spring season.

Jun 17, 9:28 AM by Djengo

Kakegurui seems interesting, I look foward to Fate/Apocrypha and Made in Abyss

Jun 17, 9:11 AM by -Pericles

Only hyped for Tsurezure Children,Ballroom e Youkoso,Owari S2 (hoping it'll be better than the first) and maybe Shoukoku no Altair.

Worst anime season in maybe... ever. Not gonna watch anything, except boruto which will continue from this season... sad.

What a garbage season. Other than monogatari and 1 or 2 more, everything is awful.


Straight ignorance at its finest. Say that after you watch their first episodes.


I'm always right when judging stuff before I watch them, and I will trust myself this time too, rather than waste my time.

Only Aho Girl worth watching for me after it became apparent Tsurezure Children is going to be garbage, maybe Made in Abyss will be good if it doesn't turn grimderp.
