My initial reaction upon the beginning of the season: SO. MANY. FANTASY. I started 7 new series but dropped some along the way because I wasn’t too keen on continuing them. And I’m putting two shows on-hold at the moment (Ore Monogatari and Denpa Kyoushi). I think I was just not in the mood for shoujo or slice-of-life kinds of shows???
Arslan Senki | Imagine Akatsuki no Yona, but with a male lead and no romance. It’s a nice show and I like watching it, but it doesn’t give me much excitement nor drive me into obsession. Still, I will keep watching this anime since it’s gonna last for another season.
Owari no Seraph | I have been anticipating this anime since last year and I’m glad that it didn’t stray from the manga. This show was enjoyable and I totally approve Nakamura Yuuichi as Guren’s seiyuu! Despite that, I prefer the manga as usual. The anime makes some scenes come across as a little awkward so I’m slightly disappointed with the voice acting… (It’s possible that it only happens to me because so far, I haven’t encountered anyone who complains about it.)
Shokugeki no Souma | FOODGASM. Seriously though, reading the manga has already aroused my appetite multiple times and I can’t believe the anime managed to portray the food so deliciously realistic. Plus, this show is hilarious and I love those funny and adorable chibi expressions. Totally looking forward for the second half of the show!!! <33
Kuroko no Basket (Season 3) | IT HAS ENDED. Gahhh, I can’t believe the day has come for the anime to finish. That zone beyond the zone looks like space and it’s true when people on tumblr debate, “IS THIS STILL ABOUT BASKETBALL???” Anyway, Kurobasu is a beloved series of mine, and yeah I was emotional while watching the finale. Those epilogues are also animated in the last episode and it shows the Generation of Miracles moving on with their own teams and becoming a better person overall. Now, we only need to wait for the new OVA in Fall (and Extra Games chapters…) ;A;
Since I will be watching two spring leftovers next summer, I will limit the number of summer series I will follow. At the moment I’m strongly considering Gate, Akagami no Shirayuki-hime, God Eater and Aoharu x Kikanjuu. Again, I might drop any series so we’ll see how many will last at the end of the summer haha.
