Spring 2018 Previews

Since Beatless is once again in recap mode and most series are ending this week, I think it's time to do a preview. Series are listed in alphabetical order to make them easier to find by title.

  • 3D Kanojo - I've read the manga for this series, but I don't have anything particular to say about it. The series didn't do anything crazy as a romance, but it wasn't bad. I'm curious to see how it will be adapted, as the ending goes a bit crazy. I probably won't write posts about every episode, though, as I know where it's going.
  • Boku no Hero Academia S3 - I watched the last two seasons, so I'll likely watch this season as well. I'm in it for the long haul, I suppose.
  • Butlers - Pass.
  • Caligula - The premise for this show seems interesting. It has the "sci-fi gone wrong" feel to it, which has me curious. It makes sense that the people in the virtual reality world would want to forget that they're in a fake world if they're trying to escape some sort of pain. I think it's funny that the main characters are somehow managing to fail at escapism by trying to go back to the real world.
  • Comic Girls - Again, I've read the manga here and it's pretty standard for a 4-koma. It's not particularly special in my eyes, but I guess I'll watch it.
  • Devil's Line - I'm questioning the horror tag, but this show seems like the kind of supernatural premise that I would normally watch.
  • Dorei-ku The Animation - Uhh...what? Okay, sure. I'll give this a chance. Moral dilemmas are fun, right?
  • FLCL Progressive - Do I have to?
  • Golden Kamuy - Baited by mystery tag? But honestly, the opening to the synopsis makes this series seem like it should be a historical show, so I'm a bit disappointed that it isn't. Still, it seems interesting, especially if it truly isn't planning to use a supernatural aspect to it.
  • Gundam Build Divers - Looks like fun.
  • Hinamatsuri - This premise reminds me a bit of Alice & Zouroku, but the comedy tag suggests that it will be less serious. I can see that working.
  • Hisone to Maso-tan - From the image alone, this show seems like it would be too childish, but I'm willing to try it out if it's going for something more than that.
  • Juushinki Pandora - Well, this premise certainly sounds a lot like Dimension W, but I'm willing to give it a shot. It sounds interesting enough.
  • Kakuriyo no Yadomeshi - This series looks suspiciously like a reverse harem. Seems dangerous.
  • Mahou Shoujo Ore - I get the sense that this series will get a lot of hype, but I'm just not interested.
  • Mahou Shoujo Site - I tried to read the manga for this series, but couldn't really get into it. I might watch it to see if my opinion changes.
  • Nil Admirari no Tenbin - Sure, why not? I need another candidate for romance show in this season.
  • Persona 5 The Animation - I'm still torn on whether I should be writing blog posts about this series. I enjoyed the game a lot, but I had some issues with the themes in it. It might be worth mentioning, but I know that I didn't have much to say in the Persona 4 adaptation. I'm sure this adaptation won't be much different.
  • Piano no Mori - I've actually got nothing on this series. I meant to read the manga, but never got to it. It sounds like a relaxing series that I might enjoy.
  • Saredo Tsumibito wa Ryuu to Odoru - There are enough science terms in this synopsis to catch my attention.
  • Shiyan Pin Jiating - Sure, why not?
  • Shokugeki no Souma: San no Sara - I'm committed at this point.
  • Steins;Gate 0 - I mean...I really don't have a choice here. I kinda have to watch this one.
  • Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online - Do I really want to watch a side story? This series reminds me of the concept behind Soul Eater Not.
  • Tada-kun wa Koi wo Shinai - Another potential romance?
  • Tokyo Ghoul:re - Do I have to? I guess I should watch this series given the hype, but I'm not sure.
  • Wotaku ni Koi wa Muzukashii - I read the manga for this series and I'm definitely hyped. I thought the series was pretty funny in manga form. It had a lot of fun gaming and anime references.


General thoughts – This season looks like it's made for me with all of these sci-fi shows. Either I'm in for the time of my life or I'm in for some real disappointment. Hoping for the best.
