Summer 2016 Season Previews

Like last season, I'll probably do some follow-up posts focusing on specific series, but for now...let's do the obligatory run through all of the series in the coming season. I know how excited you all are, but if you're too excited to read through everything, the summary is further down as always.

  • Fukigen na Mononokean - I mean...sure, if it's a short.
  • Berserk - I get to use the excuse that I didn't see the original series, right? I'll just pass on this one...
  • Love Live Sunshine - Me? Watch this? I have no idea what you're talking about!
  • Hatsukoi Monster - I'm not sure on this one. I might judge from the first episode.
  • B-Project: Kodou Ambitious - This seems sketchy. Can I just listen to the soundtrack when it's done?
  • Tales of Zestiria the X - So, an anime adaptation of pretty much the only Tales game that I started and was unable to finish? Sign me up! I mean...everyone loves the Tales of the Abyss adaptation, right? Right?? (sigh...I feel like I'm obligated to watch this one)
  • Saiki Kusou no ... Nan - Not even gonna attempt that character (I think it's "psi"). This series looks quirky enough to watch, but I'll pass on blogging about comedy.
  • Puzzles & Dragons Cross - Hahahahahahahaha no.
  • Show by Rock Short - Normally I would watch shorts, but I never saw the original series, so probably not.
  • Taboo Tattoo - Ehh...why not? Let's try this one. I'm totally not being baited in by the mystery tag.
  • Fudanshi Koukou Seikatsu - I have enough trouble watching series about fujoshi...why would a fudanshi be any better?
  • Prism Illya 3 - Nooooooope.
  • Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru - Seems generic enough to ignore.
  • Planetarian - Post-apocalypse world? Sounds fun...I can't remember if this is one of the VNs people love or hate. Is this a trap?
  • Amanchu - meh...
  • 91 Days - More historical series? Well, I watched Joker Game, so I feel like I have to at least try this one.
  • Arslan Senki S2 - Oh yeah, I was gonna watch the first season of this series. Well, if I finish it in time, I might watch this second season, but it's not looking likely.
  • Battery - Not sure about this one. I've never watched a baseball anime and I'm not a huge fan of the sport.
  • Time Travel Shoujo - ...maybe...
  • Active Raid S2 - Nope.
  • Handa-kun - Probably going to be watching this one, but I doubt I'd cover it. I've been reading the Barakamon manga, which has been interesting, so this should be fun. I feel like high school days wouldn't be as interesting, but I don't mind trying it out to see if I'm proven wrong.
  • Shokugeki no Souma S2 - Yes!
  • ReLIFE - More yes!
  • D.Gray-man Hallow - This series feels like it happened so long ago that I forgot it...
  • Ozmafia - ...what? Can I not?
  • Onara Gorou - No...just no. I already know what the comments on this show are going to be and I refuse to be part of it.
  • Servamp - Shoujo...vampires...uhhh
  • Qualidea Code - Seems dangerous, but I might try out the first episode.
  • Amaama to Inazuma - Not too sure about this one. Doesn't look immediately interesting.
  • Nejimaki Seirei Senki - From first glance, it's a pass, but I might try it out.
  • Regalia: The Three Sacred Stars - Can I skip on the mecha this season?
  • Ange Vierge - Card game adaptation? Naaahhhh...
  • Mob Psycho 100 - I'm cool with trying this one out. I doubt I'll be able to cover it since I wasn't able to cover One Punch Man, but watching should be fine...
  • Cheer Danshi - Nope.
  • New Game - I've read the manga for this series, so I'll probably watch it.
  • Rewrite - It seems like I need VN knowledge to appreciate this one, so I'll just be off on the side not watching...
  • Masou Gakuen HxH - Hahahahahahahahaha no.
  • Dangan Ronpa 3 - You know, I don't really know about this one. On the one hand, half of the series is devotes to the characters from the first Dangan Ronpa, which I watched. But the second half is on Dangan Ronpa 2, which is a game that I didn't play. So...maybe?
  • Orange - Meh...I'm curious.


General thoughts – A decent number of manga adaptations that I recognize this season, which makes things fun. I feel like there are a lot more "safe" series this season...where I know enough going in that I feel comfortable watching them. Sigh...I guess I need to take some risks and choose some unknowns, do I?

Probably covered – ReLIFE

Very likely to watch and might be covered – Tales of Zestiria the X, Taboo Tattoo, Planetarian, 91 Days, Orange

Might be watched, but probably won’t be covered – Time Travel Shoujo, Handa-kun, Shokugeki no Souma S2, Mob Psycho 100, New Game
