Hey guys! With the Spring Season wrapping up – I figured it was time to look ahead at the some of the summer shows coming and what I’m looking forward to.
If you hadn’t noticed, I didn’t really participate in watching anything during the Spring season. The only one I really watched consistently was Attack on Titan. Other than that, I have a ton in my queue to watch from spring but never started. Personally, it seems that nothing really grabbed my attention as a must watch; so a majority of these will end up being binge-watched at some point. Many of you have suggested a lot of Spring anime for me to watch in particular, I’ll have to hold on to those a little bit longer.
The Winter anime season is already upon us. I’ve had a few on my “plan to watch list” on MAL for quite some time, but looking back at it now, there may be a few more I’m adding.
My top 5 anticipated are:
Ao No Exorcist: Kyoto Fujouou-hen
I’ve been a fan of Blue Exorcist for awhile, and am actually surprised to find out that the second arc of the first season was non-canon; so when I saw the latest first episode I was really confused.
Kuzu no Honkai (Scum’s Wish)
The story is intriguing and I had actually started reading the manga recently on a whim and not knowing that it was going to be adapted.
Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu: Sukeroku Futatabi-hen
First season was a real hit for me. Tragic but good. I can’t wait to see what Yakumo is up to – he seems to have always been the character I’ve been attached to on this show.
Masamune-kun no Revenge When I read the premise of the show I just figured this might actually be a good comedy. So I’m giving it a shot
ACCA: 13-ku Kansatsu-ka The art style is what really drew me into this one; and considering it’s from madhouse, I figured what can go wrong with it?
Other’s I’ll be following/checking out:
Chain Chronicle Intrigued by it just because it’s Fantasy.
Fuuka a twitter obsessed kid? I’m in!
Little Witch Academia This one was recommended to me by someone. I know Netflix has the movie, and its from Trigger whose artstyle I rather like. So I’ll be checking this one out too.
Super Lovers 2
I read the manga so….yeah..just gonna leave that one there.
Rewrite: Moon & Terra
even tho I hated the first season I’ll probably check it out just because I started it – ahh the animasochist in me
…debating because i haven’t seen chaos;head yet – and I’m probably going to binge watch chaos;head before this even starts.
Continuations from Fall 2016 that I’m still following:
3-gatsu no Lion
To be honest I need to catch up on this one.
What can I say I’m really a sucker for the sports genre. Despite its crazy weird sometimes off-putting art style – I’m actually enjoying this one even though it’s got all the sports anime cliche’s and tropes on it. I still like this one. I may end up writing a post about it….maybe…a very huge maybe…
What’s everyone else looking forward to this coming Winter season?
I’m still a bit flabbergasted that I was nominated for this since I haven’t had much time to post lately – even though I have a long list of posts lined up! But I’m extremely flattered, excited and thankful I was even noticed! And to the new followers I’m gaining..welcome! You can learn a bit more about who I am in my “About Me” page if you haven’t checked that out. Anyways, thank you thank you again melinanimeland for the nomination!

Seven Things About the Me
I live in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I’m over 30
I’m studying to become a licensed Architect in the state of California
I got to live in Japan for 3 months as part of a study abroad program with my Architecture School.
I’m a Leo; but am actually quite shy – the total opposite of what leo’s embody and am actually quite self-conscious (still trying to figure out who I am – pretty late to the game)
My immersion into anime has exploded a lot more than I expected in the last year or so and has actually been quite liberating for me in terms of accepting myself and raising my nerd flag very high.
Guilty pleasures include: Otome games & BL.
My Nominations (this list is hard because half of these people have been nominated already and I haven’t followed a ton of blogs yet – still being kinda picky!)
levelpotato.net (not really a shameless plug, but my friend runs this blog and I happen to participate in it!)
fullmetalghoul (someone I started following awhile back due to their contributions on anitay.kinja.com)
I was not disappointed the opener’s of my list so far (Ajin is out of the loop for now). But there were a lot of of anime that I did have an eye out for that really took me by surprise! So I wanted to do a quick updated list of the anime that I’ll be following this season. I may not write about all of them; but there are on my radar:
First my top 5 – reiterated:
Haikyuu! Season 3
Bungou Stray Dogs, Season 2
Ajin, Season 2
Sangatsu No Lion
Watashi Ga Motete Dosunda
Other’s that I will be following:
Yuri on Ice
Udon no Kuni no Kiniro Kamari
To Be Hero
Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru
Shuumatsu no Izetta
Now, I don’t typically drop anime’s (despite how horrendous it may end up being) but last season was quite difficult – I ended up binge watching all the horrible ones in one day – talk about masochism.
As an honorable mention, I really want to watch Natsume Yuujinchoubut I figured I should watch that after I catch up on previous seasons first. This one has been on my plan to watch list for a really long time.
