Is the season that I will see more anime weekly. HYPE HYPE HYPE!

Sep 16, 1:55 PM by Kinyoubi

Strike Witches 3, Love Live! Nijigaku, CHADblesse, Higurashi remake, Dragon Quest remake, Jujutsu Kaisen, Iwa Kakeru!, Munou na Nana, Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka? S3 ALL in the same season?!

For the first time in FIVE YEARS I will be watching Seasonals. Let's a go!!

Also gonna be retrying DanMachi ;)

Majo no Tabitabi looks pretty hype. Not a fan of Borutoyasha: Inuyasha Next Generations.


WTF? Mahouka is getting a new season? I've been meaning to watch S1 for a long time now! Even Golden Kamuy, which has been in my thousand-anime backlog for years as well.

Maoujou de Oyasumi looks... wholesome. Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear somewhat, not sure if I care or not tho.


I watched GochiUsa S1 when it was airing weekly... So I was 11 watching that in Spring 2014. Still need to catch up with that. Lol


Adachi to Shimamura looks pretty gud.


Ochikobore Fruit Tart? HYPE. D4DJ? Sounds guud.
Osomatsu-san 3rd Season? Another S1 I was watching while airing and never finished.

Hoppy said:
I hope Dai no Daibouken is good (while I can trust the franchise to deliver good console and handheld games, Dragon Quest had a total stinker lately when it comes to anime) the rest of the anime I watch compose of mostly the heavy hitters especially Gochiusa Bloom and Love Live Nijigasaki Gakuen.


It will be good for sure if they fully adapt the manga

This is noting like Dragon quest movie

Sep 15, 11:54 PM by thepath

Good to see many people mention Fumetsu no Anata e (To Your Eternity) above because it really is a huge pity.

Mahouka Koukou Rettousei S2
Ikebukuro West Gate Park
Gochuumon Usagi Desu ka? Bloom
Golden Kamuy S3
Haikyuu!!: To the Top 2nd Season

Most likely going to be watching [Medium Priority]:

Jujutsu Kaisen
Senkyou no Sigrdrifa
Tonikaku Kawaii
Maji no Tabitai
Ochikobore Fruit Tart
Yuukoku no Moriarty
DanMachi III
Adachi to Shimamura

Maoujou de Oyasumi
Guruburu!
Love Live! Nijisaki

Likely to watch [Low Priority]:

Hanyou no Yashahime
Assault Lily: Bouquet
Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Senjou, Aruiwa Sekai ga Hajimaru Seisen
Strike Witches: Road to Berlin
A3! Season Autumn & Winter
Dragon Quest: Dai no Daibouken (2020)

Kami-tachi ni Hirowareta Otoko
Iwa Kakeru!: Sport Climbing
Hypnosis Mic
Munou na Nana
100-man no Inochi no Ue ni Ore wa Tatteiru

Busy season for me, like the usual. Although busier than most and perhaps even the most busy, to be honest.

Sep 15, 10:48 PM by _MushiRock11_

Definitely a bit more busy this season. Sad to see that To Your Eternity got delayed for a good 6 months but there's still some interesting looking stuff. I'm hyped for the new seasons of Haikyuu and Golden Kamuy and I'm looking forward to trying the new Higurashi, Ikebukuro West Gate Park, Jujutsu Kaisen, Akudama Drive, Taisou Zamurai, and Yuukoku no Moriarty.

There's also a few I'm most likely going to try a couple of episodes like Kamisama ni Natta hi, Munou no Nana, Senyoku no Sigrdrifa, Tonikaku Kawaii, and Magatsu Wahrheit: Zuerst but I'm less sure I'll have a good time with them.

Sep 15, 8:46 PM by DatRandomDude

Well looks like my week is going to get busy for next season and I'm excited. :D

Sep 15, 7:12 PM by Mg204

nice. also some skate anime is possibly coming up from Bones https://www.twitter.com/sk8_project
but we'll see on sunday...

Sep 15, 5:40 PM by Korishi

Out of all of the shows here, my most anticipated one is Danmachi Season 3. Given the length of the arc being adapted, I'm hoping it ends up being the most faithful adaptation by JC Staff thus far.

Beyond Danmachi, I'm really looking forward to the 2nd season of Mahouka cause it's been so damn long since the first season. I'll check out the new Higurashi anime since I did want to watch the older ones at some point but now don't feel like I have a reason to. Ikebukuro West Gate Park seems interesting cause reading it's synopsis gives me Durarara vibes. It's cool we're getting more Golden Kamuy so I'll have to catch up on that and I'll also check out Jujutsu Kaisen to see what all the hype is about.

This fall season really is looking to be a solid season imo.

Sep 15, 4:26 PM by AntwanMantilla

I hope Dai no Daibouken is good (while I can trust the franchise to deliver good console and handheld games, Dragon Quest had a total stinker lately when it comes to anime) the rest of the anime I watch compose of mostly the heavy hitters especially Gochiusa Bloom and Love Live Nijigasaki Gakuen.

Sep 15, 3:03 PM by Hoppy

6 shows, with my only off-days being Tues & Wed. pretty nice. I'm in for love live nijigaku, jujutsu kaisen, higurashi, and hypmic. talentless nana and dropout idol fruit tart i'll attempt bc i like the premise and cute artstyles but who knows.

other than these its sequels im not caught up to (danmachi, haikyuu) and stuff im not sold on. at least there's more variety than summer had

Sep 15, 2:25 PM by rubybestgirl

gonna see Dragon Quest, Jujutsu Kaisen and that new PA Works + Jun Maeda original anime

Sep 15, 2:00 PM by deg

You know what sucks? I was thinking of packing at least one show per day of the week, but tuesdays REALLY suck. Saturdays on the other hand...

Sep 15, 1:51 PM by spectrojan

Suck that To Your Eternity was delayed which was my most anticipated show from Fall.

Without it the Fall season seem dry with the exception of Kamuy S3 and possibly Jujutsu Kaisen. Winter season looks much more interesting now in comparison.
