[Watch List] Summer 2017

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.

WINTER 2017 – Watch List

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:

5-MOST-ANTICIPATED.png

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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:

2017_lineup

  1. Chain Chronicle
    Intrigued by it just because it’s Fantasy.
  2. Fuuka
    a twitter obsessed kid? I’m in!
  3. 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.
  4. Super Lovers 2
    I read the manga so….yeah..just gonna leave that one there.
  5. 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
  6. Chaos;Child
    …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:

  1. 3-gatsu no Lion
    To be honest I need to catch up on this one.
  2. All Out!!
    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!

Fall 2016 – Update

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:

  1. Haikyuu! Season 3
  2. Bungou Stray Dogs, Season 2
  3. Ajin, Season 2
  4. Sangatsu No Lion
  5. Watashi Ga Motete Dosunda

Other’s that I will be following:

fall2016-top-11

  1. Days (continuation)
  2. Yuri on Ice
  3. All Out!
  4. Drifters
  5. Udon no Kuni no Kiniro Kamari
  6. Occultic;Nine
  7. To Be Hero
  8. Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru
  9. Shuumatsu no Izetta
  10. Nanbaka
  11. Bloodivores

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 Yuujinchou but 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.

Which anime’s caught your attention so far?
