As always, substantial research went into this, etc. See the chart here.
- Can’t wait for ReLife. It’s one of my favorite manga being published at the moment. Of course, that’s no guarantee the anime won’t suck.
- I hope Berserk will be good. I’m hoping they’ll get to the part with Farnese, who is of course my favorite…
- I’ve heard Planetarian is really good. Of course this is all from people who like visual novels, so…
- 91 Days looks interesting. The last anime set in prohibition era America was Baccano, so…
- Arslan Senki, Shokugeki no Soma, Binan Koukou and Danganronpa sequels should all be good.
- The Nejimaki Seirei Senki manga is great. I feel like it would be harder to screw up an anime adaptation than it would for ReLife, too.
- I’ve heard that Orange is great, although I don’t know anything about it.
- Masou Gakuen HxH and Taboo Tatoo both look good to watch with Classy (by which I mean, they look pretty bad). There wasn’t a single decent classy anime last season so we’ve gone on hiatus…
It will be hard to beat the amazing season that’s just ending, but the next one looks pretty promising! Definitely should be some good shows.
As always, I did a lot of research and considered everything carefully.
But, tragically, my server sucks and I can’t upload big images. I don’t know what’s going. Text-only version this time.
Update: I was able to upload to imgur. See the chart here. Continue reading Spring 2016 Anime Preview
I wrote a season preview a couple months ago but forgot to publish it. Now you can all laugh at how wrong I was about everything.
As always, a lot of research went into this.
I’m excited about the new Gundam and Garo. I’m mildly enthusiastic about Yuruyuri and Owari no Searaph season two. And Concrete Revolutio sounds promising. Otherwise it looks like a pretty disappointing season.
There’s a number of fantasy shows though. At first glance they all look pretty dumb, but hopefully at least one will deliver?
But, as usual, who can tell? I’m assuming that some shows will end up betraying expectations and turn out pretty good like usual.
Of course, I decided whether each show would be worthwhile based solely on a single picture and the text in the chart.

As always, I did no research whatsoever. Click to view.
This season looks amazing. There’s already a number of shows I know are going to be awesome and even more that have the potential to be so.
- High School DxD: omg omg can’t wait!
- Sidonia: also going to be awesome!
- Fate Stay Night, Grisaia, and Yahari Ore are also getting sequels. I’m looking forward to Yahari. Fate Stay Night will hopefully be less boring than the last season… Grisaia… will hopefully continue being Grisaia levels of stupid.
- Denpa Kyoushi is being animated! I enjoy this manga quite a bit. Who knows if it will translate well to anime though. I’m still scarred from what happened to Medaka Box.
- Shokugeki no Soma is also a good manga, although I’ve fallen way behind on it. Should be entertaining.
- Nagati Yuko is also getting her own anime! I loved the movie about her, although I wasn’t a big fan of the original Haruhi series. Let’s hope this is more in line with the movie.
- Hibike Euphonium! should be good, if only because I’m a brass player. Let’s hope they hold their trombones correctly.
- Also looks like there’s a good selection of other fantasy shows, vampire shows, sci-fi shows, and action shows.
I’ll be shocked if there aren’t shows I haven’t mentioned that turn out great as well. Really looking forward to this next season.
