Click on the chart above to view my summer preview. I shamelessly copied EmperorJ’s professional and detailed preview format. As you may imagine, I poured hours of extensive research into forming scientific conclusions for what anime will be good next season.
No, seriously, I’m just pulling crap out of my ass. I have no idea how anything’s going to turn out. Everything I know about the next season’s shows I gleaned from the preview images and short blurbs on the chart, so feel free to correct me.
Usually the summer and winter are weaker than the spring and fall, but there are a few series that I think have promise this season. In the worst case, there are sequels to YuruYuri, Dog Days and Moyashimon which should be decent at least. Plus there are MILKY HOLMES and Code Geass OVAs which I’m looking forward to.
As for new shows, the premises with the UN arbitrator for fairies and the ten person body swap both sound good. A body swap with one guy and one girl would be awful, but with ten people I think the group dynamics could keep it interesting. The show with the mafia sounds cool too, I’m imagining it as a cross between Jormungand and Umineko but it will probably not be that good. A few of the other shows sound interesting too.
There won’t be as many great shows as this season, that’s for sure, but that might be a good thing. I could have a chance to catch up on this season’s backlog.
