Spring 2016 Season Previews


One of these days, I'll stop being so lazy and come up with a better way to do this post, but NOT TODAY! As always, the summary will be at the bottom for a TL;DR version, but I like to think that everyone who reads these posts reads the whole thing...helps me sleep at night.

  • Kanojo to Kanojo no Neko: Everything Flows - This one is already out, and it's actually pretty good. It's only four episodes, each 7-minutes long, so it's a very small time investment for a decent and simple story.
  • God Eater - Yeah, yeah...I'll get a post for the final episode of this out at some point. Stop reminding me!
  • Mayoiga - Out of the block of shows that air on April 1, this is probably the one I'll pick (or maybe I'm just playing a cruel April Fools' Day joke). I'm usually a sucker for the utopia/dystopia concept, so that's enough to get me curious (though I'm not sure if the utopia aspect even plays a role in the story other than luring the kids to the village).
  • Uchuu Patrol Luluco - If this is a short series, I might watch it. If not, I'm not entirely sure...doesn't sound too alluring just from this description.
  • : Ushio to Tora Second Season, Kagewani: Shou, Jojo Season...something, Terra Formars Revenge
  • Gyakuten Saiban - I never got into the Phoenix Wright series, so I don't have an immediate interest in this series. Put this one down as a maybe just because it's a popular game series and I'm not against watching it if it's a decent series of mysteries.
  • Gakusen Toshi Asterisk Second Season - Nope
  • Endride - As long as I'm not being dragged into another BL-heavy series >.>
  • Ragnastrike Angels - Oi, if I didn't watch Busou Shinki, which was about small combat girls, what makes you think I'm going to watch a series about enlarged combat girls?
  • Gundam Unicorn RE:0096 - Oh yeah...I still haven't finished the Gundam Unicorn movies...one of these days.
  • Boku no Hero Academia - I might end up covering this as the popular series of the season, but I remember dropping the manga for this because I didn't find it too interesting...
  • Macross Delta and Concrete Revolutio: Choujin Gensou both fall into the category of sequels for which I haven't seen the first season.
  • Kuma Miko - What is with people and bears? I've just never been into bears...
  • Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu - I feel like I've seen this scenario before somewhere...
  • 12-sai - Sounds like a short anime...if so, I'm fine with watching it.
  • Pan de Peace - Please no...seriously, are they just going to talk about bread?
  • Bakuon - Do motorcycles count as cars? Doesn't look too interesting...
  • Seisen Cerberus: Ryouukoku no Fatalite - Sounds like a typical "boy sets out to defeat the demon lord" story...not sure what I'm supposed to be getting here.
  • Hundred - Pass
  • Joker Game - I'll probably watch this out of curiosity, but I don't know if I'll cover it (I'm guessing it will be like Young Black Jack and no one else will be watching).
  • Sousei no Onmyouji - I'm reading the manga for this and it's alright so far. I don't usually like to cover adaptations of manga I've already read, but I might based on how many other shows I'm watching.
  • Bishoujo Yuugi Unit Crane Game Girls - ...what? Just...no...
  • Onigiri - facepalm
  • Bungou Stray Dogs - How many times has this series been on these charts? This is the third time, right? Well, if it actually comes out this time, I'll watch it >.>
  • Kuromukuro - Mecha? Sure, why not?
  • Unhappy - You know what's a great idea? Getting a bunch of people with bad luck together! Surely, their bad luck will only cancel each other out...
  • Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta - Also pass. I read like the first five chapters of the manga and I really want nothing to do with it...
  • Koutetsujou no Kabaneri - I feel like I've seen this series compared to Shingeki no Kyojin (perhaps it was just a comparison of the technology they use). If so, I'm interested enough to watch it.
  • Shounen Maid - IT'S A TRAP!
  • Sakamoto desu ga? - I've read like a chapter of the manga for this series and I know it's hugely popular. I'll probably watch it just so I can read the comments of salty people online who say the manga is so much better...
  • Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge - Another possible short anime?
  • Kiznaiver - Ehh...what could go wrong? The premise reminds me of a Netflix series called Sense8, which I never got around to watching. Anyone else get that sense?
  • Hai-Furi - Nope
  • Flying Witch - Another series where I've read the manga. It started out okay, but just got boring...nothing really happens.
  • Big Order - I've had the manga sitting around in my queue for a while, but never got around to reading it. Might watch this just to see what the fuss is about...

Summary

General thoughts - Nothing really jumps out at me for this season. Most of the series I have listed as potentials are complete unknowns. It feels like there will be more potentials in this season than last season, so I'm going to be optimistic.

Probably covered - Mayoiga, Gundam Unicorn RE:0096

Very likely to watch and might be covered - Gyakuten Saiban, Joker Game, Sousei no Onmyouji, Bungou Stray Dogs, Kuromukuro, Koutetsujou no Kabaneri, Kiznaiver, Big Order

Might be watched, but probably won't be covered - Boku no Hero Academia, Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu, Sakamoto desu ga
