I am mostly looking forward to Love Live! Superstar!!


That is one of the two that I'm interested in, to see if Liella can grab me. Though they do have a very tough act to follow after the Niji anime.


The other, on the other hand...


G E T T E R... assuming it gets subbed, that is, seems that no-one's announced anything about picking up that passion project of a mecha anime for subbing yet.

Well, this season is just full of isekai animes, moreover pretty dry season of this year. Anyways, I'm looking forward to Kanojo mo Kanojo and Detective is Already Dead

Jun 24, 12:53 PM by PLight09

The season looks so fucking dry lol. Which is good for me since I am behind on most of things from this winter and spring.

That said only thing I really see potential in is Sonny Boy. Another thing I will watch is Kaizoku Oujo (The Pirate Princess). Have low expectations for the writing but I am sure production values will be amazing. If the story somehow ends up kicking ass, then all the better.

Will check out that Vanitas anime but from the promo material it doesn't look like something that I would really like. I'll see I guess.
I will also watch Getter Robo once I finish with the manga.

Looks like it's finally time for me to take a break from anime. About time, after all the amazing seasons we've had recently.

Jun 18, 5:43 AM by Aethyr13

Kobayashi-san is obviously the must-watch of this season for me. Also excited for Love Live. Shiroi Suna no Aquatope looks like it could have potential. I'll give Bokutachi no Remake, Sonny Boy, and Jahy-sama a shot for at least a few episodes. And Kanojo mo Kanojo will hopefully satiate my shitty anime needs.

Jun 17, 5:39 PM by crazymario

It will be a slow season for me.

Major hype for Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon S!!!!

Curious about:

Ore, Tsushima
Kaizoku Oujo

Jun 17, 2:55 PM by CataOrShane

Got 12 of those on my "Plan to Watch" list, going to be another busy season, wonder how many will only last the 3 episode drop test?

But looking forwards to:-

Kobayashi's dragon maid S2
Hamefura X
Tensei Shitara Datta Ken S2 P2

Really stoked for Getter Robo Arc. Here's hoping they do the manga justice, especially with the ending.

Jun 17, 12:55 PM by _Nette_

case study of vanitas babeyyyyyy. otherwise I counted 10 shows I'm definitely watching, and then there's more I'm gonna keep an eye on to see if they're worth it

Jun 17, 10:52 AM by rubybestgirl

Only interested in Vanitas no Carte.

Jun 17, 8:17 AM by SebCyrSC2000

Only interesting in Tantei wa Mou, Shindeiru.

Jun 17, 3:47 AM by Resolution1337

Kobayashi's dragon maid S2
Hamefura X
Genkoku
Tsukimichi
Tanmoshi
