Anime: What you should be watching this season – Spring 2017

posted in: Anime, WYSBW | 0

Okay so, Upon watching most of the things this season, I have come to the conclusion that near everything is trash.

Real talk, there are maybe 2 or 3 new shows that i’ll be following this season, which is super low for me.
Thankfully there are at least some 2nd seasons to very good shows this season – Attack on Titan Season 2 is shaping up to be super interesting already, and My Hero Academia returns for a 2nd season as well.

Least worst of the bunch:

This is actually in the show.

Eromanga Sensei
7 – This seasons ‘I hate onii-chan show’, with manga writing big brother and erotic artist little sister

 

Sakura Quest
6 – This season’s PA Works anime, about a useless girl sent to the countryside to become a tourism ambassador. First episode was ok

 

Renai Boukun
7 – ‘Kiss Note’, whoever’s names are written will fall in love. And by the end of the first episode we already have a harem love triangle thing happening, including a Yuri sis-con, a Yandere and an idiot character. It’s literal trash, but i’ll be damned if it isn’t entertaining trash.

 

Everything else is kind of trash:

Hinako Note
6 – Opening and ending videos consist of adorable anime preteens dancing and making kawaii uguu faces =^_^= , also one of the girls looks suspiciously like konata from lucky star. Shy girl from the country moves to the big city and wants to start a theatre troupe with her friends. Seems to have some potential if you are into cute girls doing cute things.

Tsuki ga Kirei
6 – High school romance show, about a shy boy and girl. Very vanilla and quite realistic so far, which is a good thing because so help me if they get magical sword powers by episode 2.

Zero kara Hajimeru Mahou no Sho (Grimoire of Zero)
6 – Perpetually hunted manbeast meets powerful loli mage. They team up to be persecuted together. Seems watchable, if not particularly new or innovative.

Sagrada Reset
5 – Has potential maybe, town where everyone has powers. One boy has 100% memory, whilst another girl can rewind time up to 3 days. From there they solve crimes or something I think. Episode 2 was kind of dull though,otherwise I might have rated it higher.

Rokudenashi Majitsu Koushi to akashic records
4 – Useless teacher in a magic school. Kind of painful to watch such an irritating character take centre stage, the shows only saving grace is that the school uniforms appeal to a wide range of fetishes

Tsugumomo
4 – Japanese deity comes saves schoolboy and lives with him, probably goes shows up in his class as a transfer student in episode 2. That sort of show.

Sekaisuru Kado
4 – Stories of an “Ace Negotiator”, whatever that means. First episode kind of boring, not sure where it’s going to go.

Fukumenkei Noise
4 – Kind of dull school music/romance story? Has a really awful animation style where the main character ‘sings’ with this face :O and it totally doesn’t match.

Clockwork Planet
4 – A planet made from clockwork, though it looks suspiciously like normal japan but with androids and a strange fixation on gear based furniture. It’s a sudden girl appearance at it’s core, with an extra helping of generic battle show.

Re-Creators
3 – Reverse ‘teleported into a video game’ story, with characters from an Anime teleported into the real world. They still have powers though. First impressions were not very good…

Granblue Fantasy
3 – Generic fantasy show based on mobile game. Interesting character design but not a whole lot else.

Gin no Guardian
2 – Not a goddamn clue. Superpowered schoolkid show again? It tried doing some strange storytelling stuff and I wasn’t interested enough to pay attention so I have no idea if they showed 2 separate shows cut up, or if the schoolboy is somehow linked to the superpower dude fighting monsters in an apocalyptic world.

Kabukibu
1 – “lets make a school club based on crossdressing men who wear makeup and perform theatre”. I’ll be honest I couldn’t be bothered to hit 50% of ep 1.

Oushitsu Kyoushi Haine
1 – “Royal Tutor”, show about some shorty who gets appointed to be the tutor for 5 handsome but asshole princes who all have bad attitudes and annoying quirks, Wasn’t really funny or very entertaining so i’m not sure if it’s a bad comedy or boring serious show. MIght be targeting women?
