Hey guys! So I hear the 2017 anime lineup is already out and that it’s starting soon. Figured I’d finally get off my “anime break” now
This season I haven’t watched anything because nothing caught my interest. Even on social media I haven’t heard anything (YOI is still dominating my tl). The only series I’ve heard about is the one with Tanya the Salaryman, but that’s only because my brother likes it and has been telling me to watch it (apparently just one episode will get me hooked)
But other than that, did anyone watch something interesting this season? I know I started Super Lovers but haven’t gotten around to finishing
As for the next season, here’s what I’m planning to watch!
Attack on Titan S2
Ok, so I’m 90% sure I mentioned (somewhere) that I was only a little bit excited about AoT s2 because it’d been SO LONG. That the feelings of excitement were already faded…and yes that’s how I initially felt but then I saw this preview!! Yes, I’m so excited and holy shenanigans this looks great and is it April yet?! I don’t know how much into the manga this is going, but to see those panels animated, I think I’ve got tears in my eyes
If you ask me, this is one of those anime that’s way better than the manga and I’m super excited for it
Boku no Hero Academia S2
It’s all about season 2s this season (haha). And yup, sports festival, you are definitely on my To Watch radar. As much as I love Deku, I’m actually super excited about other characters like Katsuki and Todoroki and even Ochako (though by association since I’m more interested in the Katsu v Ochako fight!)
Again, I’m curious to know how far into the manga they’re going. I’m pretty sure they’ll finish off the sports festival but after that? I know there’s the Stain incident but I feel like that would work better with the later chapters (end of term tests and field trip). Actually, that would make the latter way long wouldn’t it?
I just want it all done!! (lol)
Boruto: Naruto Next Generation
Ok so this one I’m only kind of excited for. I stopped watching Naruto really early in the series, when Sasuke and Naruto battled at the waterfall place. I was SAD ok! My otp was seriously battling. After some years I went back to rewatch random episodes after that and I even checked out the beginning of Shippudden (Gaara being saved, Sasori dying, Deidara dying/defeated/can’t remember, fight against Kisame)
I also went to watch Boruto in theatres and ok, I tend to love anime movies more than their series so that was my judgement (lol).
But for there to be an actual series where NaruHina and SasuSaku is canon and their kids are constantly in my face…I don’t know how I feel. Part of me wants to watch it because it’s part of Naruto but another is like, do you really? Either way, yes I’m checking this out. How long will I stay? Not sure
Ok so it might be obvious as to why I want to check this out…I mean, just look at this cover! Yes, I’m going to watch this for the Bishie!!
At first I thought it was some reverse harem thing (and who knows, it might be, but no, don’t think about it!) but the summary said it was a spin off of One Room. One Room is about three girls who live in one room so this must be about these three guys living in one room right? Yup, my inner fujoshi needs to watch this
It’s a TV short so it’s going to be short. How short, who knows…
Detective Conan Kara Kurenai Love Letter
Case Closed is one of my favorite series ever even though I stopped watching the episodes in order after season 5 (I think that’s as far as the dub got?). I’ve gone back to watch episodes after that, especially the ones with Rachel and Jimmy (not Conan) and I somehow don’t ever get tired of it
I also try to watch as many movies as I can (and buy them when possible). And I know there’s like 20-something movies out and even though they all have a similiar setup I’m still always excited!!
Definitely need to find this and watch it!
So this isn’t listed in the 2017 Spring season but because I’m most definitely going to watch this in April, I figured I’d post it here!
I actually had no idea what this movie was going to be about. I’ve heard the title and how amazing it was, but nobody really mentioned the premise of it. Then I watched this trailer and now I’m a bit more excited, but also worried? I mean, if everyone says it’s great, I have a feeling it’s going to be great. But also switching bodies? I don’t normally like that kind of story
At Least An Episode
Gin no Guardian
OK. So I’m not sure how I feel about this one. I watched the preview for it and I really want to check it out because it looks really cute. But I’m also weary because the only videogame anime I finished was Log Horizon and that was because Shiro wasn’t interested in anyone. Here is a romance.
And no I don’t hate romances but it’s rare that I find one that I like in anime. Will check out at least an episode!
Shingeki no Bahamut: VIRGIN SOUL
The only reason I decided to check this trailer out was because it had “Shingeki no” in the title. I don’t really know what this is about and I’m not interested enough to find out, but I found the animation pretty good so I’ve added it to my list
The preview starts off like a romance/slice of life in some olden fantasy land, but then it hits that part with SCREAMO BAND and I was interested (lol! also I think it’s screamo but I’m not a music junkie, I could be wrong). By the way, the MC in the first few minutes reminds me of Tsukishima (hohoho) but I’m sure he’s not like amazing Tsukki, just something I noticed.
AND there’s dragons, angels (?), knights, magic, and the animation looks good. Not to mention the music
That is all for my To-Watch List and wow, is it just me or are there a lot of girls this season? (Lol). There were a couple others I wanted to check out but they were season 2s (or 6s) and I don’t think I’ll be checking out their previous seasons. Too much work to go back. Virgin Soul being the exception.
But I’m curious, what is everyone else going to be watching this season? Or when April starts if you’re not following the season?
