  • Try Knights

Symphogear XV and Dr. Stone are my taste for summer

Jun 24, 2:08 PM by AlphaOmegaKnight

4 J.C Staff anime in summer lol, it's pretty clear that J.C no longer care about the quality anymore.

Kinda curious how GEETOYS handles Kawaikereba Hentai demo Suki ni Natte Kuremasu ka? because this studio are chosen to be made the Plunderer anime.

Jun 24, 5:16 AM by MahiaErebeaNegi

I really hope we can get rid of these mediocre isekai adaptations and focus more on adapting series with actual plots and creativity.

Dr stone
Vinland Saga
Ensemble Stars
Given
Bem
Fire Force and
Arabaru are the only ones i'm looking forward too.

Oh well i'll also have fruits basket and kimetsu no yaiba so it's not exactly a weak season for me.

Jun 24, 4:33 AM by fiza_imran

Summer season is better than spring.

Will watch:
Dr stone
Vinland saga
Fire force
Arifureta
Uchimaou
Lord el melloi
Kings avatar s2
Hyped for this season nice lineup.

Jun 24, 1:40 AM by chriskor022

Not gonna lie, the only shows I'm really looking for this season are Fire Force, Dr. Stone, and Vinland Saga. I read the manga of the first these two and they are awesome, while the latter one I don't know much about, but I've seem positive feedback towards it. Maybe also the dumbbel anime, just for ecchi goodness. Also, fuck the isekais.

Jun 23, 3:42 PM by TheGratefulDead

Vinland Saga
Kanata no Astra

im just really glad astra is getting a 1 hour special at the start on july 3rd :3:3 definitely the title im most looking forward to

----------
apart from that i'll probably check out a bunch more
a lot look at least worth checking out
so i'll probably take a peek at the isekais j4f as well as a bunch of other stuff like dr stone and and the entire line up of july 8 lmao and the original anime in general don't look bad

but overall nothing really picks my interest except for Astra and Vinland Saga to excite me

Jun 23, 11:06 AM by Nim0174

July 8 is the biggest day.

Jun 22, 12:25 AM by SkydiverRed

Yeah
Enen no Shouboutai - really like the character designs, and the plot at the very least has potential.
Vinland Saga - good source, good CM, high potential
Given - good source, main concern is staff. high potential

Probably
Lord El-Melloi II Sei no Jikenbo: Rail Zeppelin Grace Note - waver
Try Knights - you know, it looks like the staff isn't even trying to promo it properly but seeing the josei tag just makes me want to give it a chance!

Maybe (most of these are going to be a no probably bc I don't watch a lot per season)
Kanata no Astra - i like space but the characters look generic
Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e - the MC is ugly but its MAPPA
Uchi no Ko no Tame naraba, Ore wa Moshikashitara Maou mo Taoseru kamo Shirenai. - unbearably moe designs, but i like single parent anime
Dr. Stone - heard nothing special about this series, but at least it has a unique visual style
Granblem - Original, so nothing to base assumptions on. Just looks like Madoka/Homura mecha rehash tho
Ensemble stars - i've heard nice things about the game, but the show looks like a low level production (like most idol anime)
Bem - I have a soft spot for Production IG

Summer season looks nice too. I'm excited!

Two to those shows Pvs are better then OPM 2 whole season

Jun 19, 11:02 AM by Mattinator95

The Summer lineup looks better than last year imo.

Dr. Stone, Vinland Saga, Fire Force looks great from the promotional material I've seen far. Yami Shibai is also back again. It seems like a tradition every year. I'm going to cross my fingers and hope Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator will at least be somewhat decent. (the manga is rather underwhelming though)

These shows are now officially dead...

Jun 19, 12:36 AM by Kamiyan3991

I´m definitely gonna watch Nakanohito genome because the manga is damn good and it´s adaptaion deserves a chance. I hope they don´t screw it up.
Also I´m really hyped for Dr.Stone, Bem, Vinland Saga and Enen no Souboutai

Jun 18, 12:50 PM by Romshy

Why not include kid's shows? Looking at the list now most of these can be classified as for children.

Jun 18, 12:45 PM by MindOfOsaka

looking forward to:

Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san 2
Araburu Kisetsu no Otome-domo yo.
Vinland Saga
Kanata no Astra
Uchi no Ko no Tame naraba, Ore wa Moshikashitara Maou mo Taoseru kamo Shirenai.

Really looking forward to Danmachi 2 I wonder if they are going to adapt till vol 7 which is my most favorite vol because at least that's what I think looking at the PV can't wait for Haruhime.

I wonder how many vol of Kawaikereba are they going to adapt well, imo the best way to end this anime is at the epilogue of vol 3 so, that people who are interested in anime can read the novels.

Doesn't really expect anything from Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru? have read 20 ch and very boring at least gotta watch it for its ecchiness.

Have high expectations from Arifureta still wondering if I should start reading LN well, gotta wait for anime first. Cheat Magician looks good too I hope that it'll have some good romance if not then...

Read few ch of Vinland saga didn't really enjoy it so don't know what to expect from the anime. As for accelerator anime not a fan of him but still, I hope that Touma will make his appearance.

I totally forgot Mo Dao Zu Shi 2 was airing this season. Will definitely watch that one as well.
