Fall ’16: To-Watch List

I swear this blog is still alive!

I apologize for being MIA for a season and a half. I honestly tried to keep up, but it just wasn’t happening. The only show I ended up finishing from my spring to-watch list was flying witch. It was definitely a favorite for me that season. I did drop Kuromukuro even after investing six weeks of my time I wasn’t convinced that show was for me. Out of my list, I do fully intend to finish Joker Game sooner or later; the rest, I’m still a bit dubious (in other words, most likely not).

For the summer line-up, I tried to watch a bunch of pilot episodes, and sure enough, I narrowed 10 shows to a merely three—namely, 91Days, handa-kun, and Mob Psycho 100. That’s a good enough number, I think. I also haven’t finished them (oops), but I will soon!

As for this season, I challenge myself to actually finish what I’ve started. I do believe that’s mostly going to happen for one of my all-time favorites series, Natsume Yuujinchou.

Spring ’16: To-Watch List

This season have begun, and I’m actually quite excited with the line up this time around! Last season, there wasn’t any new promising shows except Boku Machi and Rakugo (which I will writing up a “final thoughts” review very soon).

Anticipation Rate: 5/5

  • Bungou Stray Dogs – I like the art style. Bones is a consistent studio. I watched the PV, and plot looks absolutely interesting. It’s definitely the type of show that I watch the most, especially with its seinen and mystery genres.
  • Joker Game – I’m not gonna lie, I’m more interested of the fact that Shirow Miwa did the OC design than the plot itself (LOL). I’m a really huge fan of his works, so that was the initial attraction to this series when he announced he designed for JG. Although I’m inclined to believe that this might not be that bad in terms of the story.
  • Kiznaiver – I have close to zero knowledge regarding this series as it is an original by Trigger. The summary looks intriguing, but someone retweeted this over at Twitter saying it’s some new stuff coming out this spring which was how I knew about this. The only thing I knew were the character design visuals, and I liked it very much. OC design again was done by Shirow Miwa (I didn’t know about that ’til now that I’m writing this post!). The staff working on this seems top tier too.

Anticipation Rate: 3/5

  • Boku no Hero Academia – I was half way through volume 1 before I put a hold on it. I have a little problem with the over-bearing texts this manga has, in my opinion. There’s just so much texts and explanation going on that my attention dwindles down as I read through. So I think the anime will compress all that to people like me ;;
  • flying witch – It’s kind of my SoL pick for this season. Read the manga but haven’t kept up with it though.
  • Sakamoto desu ga? – Read 2/4 volumes of its manga. It’s supposed to be really funny, and heard some good stuff about it which is why I initially picked it up.

Anticipation Rate: 1/5

  • Kuromukuro – I want to see what PA Works has to offer this season. Personally, they’re a hit or miss, but more misses.
  • Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge – Another SoL.
  • Kuma Miko – A bizarre show with a talking bear. Why would it not make you check it out?


So what are some of the shows you might be watching this season?
