Winter 2018 Previews

I'm probably doing my evaluation of upcoming anime a bit early, but here it is. For those that don't want to go through every show, there's a summary at the bottom with my general thoughts and which shows I expect to watch. Be sure to let me know which shows you're looking forward to watching.

Side note: I realized that it's probably hard to follow this list in default order, so now the shows will be ordered by title.

  • Beatless - This series seems like a pretty standard setup for an AI story, with the main character probably falling in love with the AI girl. Still, I'm willing to give the series a shot.
  • citrus - Well, I read the manga, so I guess I have to watch.
  • Dame x Prince ANIME CARAVAN - This series looks like a pass.
  • Darling in the Franxx - I'm going to guess that this series will be the hyped series of the season. Mecha and sci-fi fit my typical interests, so I'll likely watch it.
  • Death March Kara Hajimeru Isekai Kyousoukyoku - I haven't read the light novel, but I've read the manga adaptation. I'm not sure it does anything particularly special as an isekai show, but it was entertaining enough to read. I doubt I'll have much to say about it, so I might just watch it on the side.
  • Fate/EXTRA Last Encore - I'm not sure about this. I just went through all of Fate/Apocrypha- wait, Shaft? I'm down for seeing how Shaft adapts a Fate story.
  • Gakuen Babysitters - Seems like a standard fluff show.
  • Gin no Guardian S2 - Do I have to? I know I watched the first season, but it got so weird near the end.
  • Grancrest Senki - Worth a shot.
  • Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens - Hitman battles? Sounds interesting enough to check out.
  • Hakumei to Mikochi - This series seems like another fluff show. Sure, I'll watch it.
  • Hakyuu Houshin Engi - Am I supposed to have watched the original? It seems like I don't have to, but I'm still not sure I'm interested enough.
  • Ito Junji: Collection - Fine, I'll try it (definitely has nothing to do with the mystery tag).
  • Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san - I've read the manga version and I'm honestly not too excited to watch this series. The premise isn't that bad, but it's starting to feel repetitive for me. I'll probably still watch it, though.
  • Killing Bites - Can I not?
  • Koi wa Ameagari no You ni - This series doesn't sound too exciting, but I'm willing to try.
  • Kokkuku - Based on this synopsis, I'm at least interested. This series could be fun.
  • Miira no Kaikata - Pass?
  • Mitsuboshi Colors - I've read a different manga by the same author, but I never could get into this series. I'm not sure about it yet.
  • Marchen Madchen - Uhh, can I use the excuse that I'd never be able to get the special characters right?
  • Nanatsu no Taizai S2 - Didn't watch season 1, so pass.
  • Overlord S2 - Fine...
  • Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san - I read the manga for this series and it's quite fun. I'll be surprised if it isn't a short series, though.
  • Ryuuou no Oshigoto - What could go wrong with a shogi series?
  • Saiki Kusuo S2 - Pass.
  • Sanrio Danshi - Pass again.
  • Shinkansen Henkei Robo Shinkalion - I'm not entirely sure about this series because it seems a bit childish to me.
  • Slow Start - The premise of this series doesn't really excite me, but I might still watch it.
  • Toji no Miko - Another series I'm willing to check out.
  • Uchuu yori mo Tooi Basho - Looks like "cute girls doing cute things" in the South Pole.
  • Violet Evergarden - I'd be happy to watch this series, but I think it's being sucked into the Netflix Black Hole.
  • Yuru Camp - Uhh...I like camping.


General thoughts – I was really pleased with the Fall 2017 season, so I'll probably have overly high expectations for this series. So far, it seems largely unknown. There are some original shows that seem promising, so it might be an experiment for everyone. 3-gatsu no Lion and Mahou Tsukai no Yome will be carried over from Fall for me. I'll probably keep them in a single post like I did in the last season to give myself more room to try stuff in Winter 2018.

(I feel like I should rethink these categories)

Probably covered – Darling in the Franxx, Ito Junji: Collection, Kokkuku

Very likely to watch and might be covered – Beatless, Fate/EXTRA Last Encore, Grancrest Senki, Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens, Marchen Madchen, Toji no Miko

Might be watched, but probably won’t be covered – Death March Kara Hajimeru Isekai Kyousoukyoku, Hakumei to Mikochi, Overlord S2, Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san, Ryuuou no Oshigoto, Yuru Camp
