Summer 2018 Previews

Alright, it's preview time. The new season is upon us, and I've decided to try something new. So instead of scrolling through a giant image with the upcoming shows, I've split the shows up into sections. As always, the summary is at the bottom if you want the quick version.

  • Aguu: Tensai Ningyou - This is kind of a weird premise, but I guess it could be okay. I'm at least a little curious to see where this "gift of genius talent" idea goes. I hope it's not a simplistic case of
  • Angolmois: Genkou Kassenki - I've been liking historical shows more and more in recent seasons, what with Golden Kamuy and Shoukoku no Altair. Why not? Let's give it a go.
  • Asobi Asobase - This show looks like it might be going for something like Nichijou, with the school girls going for crazy gags. It could be interesting, but I'm always wary with comedy. I might try it.
  • Back Street Girls - I've avoided the manga for this series for a while, but I've heard good things about it. I might give it a shot, but I'm not making any promises.
  • Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro - I've read the manga for this series and it's pretty good for comedy. I don't really get as excited as other manga fans seem to get, but I'll probably watch to see how it gets adapted.

Honestly, I feel like skipping basically everything in this screenshot. I've covered FLCL Alternative in a previous season, and most of the others are sequels to shows I haven't watched. * Grand Blue - This series is another manga that I've seen around a lot but haven't read. I might watch it for a chill show, but I'm not making any promises.

  • Hanebado - I like badminton, but do I have to?
  • Happy Sugar Life - Sure, why not? I actually haven't read the manga for this series because I haven't been in the mood for reading horror series recently. But anime plays by different rules, right? I've been curious for a while why this cute-looking show is supposed to be so horrific.
  • Harukana Receive - Really unlikely. Probably a pass.
  • Hataraku Saibou - Well, I took immunology in college, so I might be committed to checking this series out.
  • High Score Girl - I've read the manga for this series, and I'm not that excited for the adaptation. I think the series will play heavily on nostalgia for old games, and I just didn't have that same nostalgia. Plus, the art style of the manga didn't appeal to me, and I still find it really weird that the main heroine doesn't speak. I'm ready to be judged as a lesser video game fan.
  • Hyakuren no Haou to Seiyaku no Valkyria - Sure, why not? A fantasy light novel adaptation sounds like something I'd watch.
  • Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu - I read the manga for this series and I will be watching the adaptation. I'm going to get so judged for this...
  • Island - Another season, another VN adaptation. Have mercy on me.
  • Jashin-chan Dropkick - I've never really been into monster girls, but I could give it a shot.
  • Kyoto Teramachi Sanjou no Holmes - Am I getting baited by mystery tags again?
  • Lord of Vermillion: Guren no Ou - Another maybe. Supernatural powers are sometimes okay?
  • Muhyo to Rouji no Mahoritsu Soudan Jimusho - Consider me intrigued. Applying some form of law to the magical world? Sounds like my kind of show.
  • Overlord III - I thought the last season was fun, so why not?
  • Phantom in the Twilight - We'll see. My instincts are telling me to flee from the reverse harem.
  • Planet With - I'm tempted to watch this series since it's an original mecha series, but the style looks a bit childish. It's on the edge, though, so I might end up trying it out.
  • Satsuriku no Tenshi - This premise looks like it could be interesting.
  • Shichisei no Subaru - Who am I kidding? I'm probably going to check this series out.
  • Shingeki no Kyojin S3 - Sigh...I've done the first two seasons. Am I committed at this point?
  • Sunoharasou no Kanrinin-san - Is this the fluff show of the season?
  • Tenrou: Sirius the Jaeger - I'm not super excited about the vampires vs. werewolves premise, but I might try it out.
  • Tsukumogami Kashimasu - This series doesn't look particularly exciting, but I can sometimes get behind folk story-ish type stories. Could be worth a shot.
  • Yume Oukoku to Nemureru 100 Nin no Ouji-sama - Meh, this show doesn't look particularly interesting.
  • Yuragi-sou no Yuuna-san - I read a bit of the manga for this series, but I couldn't really get into it. I might check it out, but I'm not really sure.


General thoughts – This season looks like a decent mix at first glance. It's pretty light on sci-fi, but it looks like there's some mystery and psychological stuff in its place. Seems like fun?
