    Welcome to another season preview thread! Less fantasy this time around, but far more in the way of children's card games and the like. Looks as though one or two of the shows on offer could turn out to be classics, but only time will tell~

    (These series are all due to air in the first few weeks of April. If you're looking for something to watch between now and then, maybe check last season's preview thread for some ideas!)


    12-sai.: Chiccha na Mune no Tokimeki


    Genre: shoujo
    Animation Studio: Oriental Light and Magic
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 4, 2016
    Seiyuu: Kakuma Ai, Saitou Souma , Kimura Juri
    Director: Oozora Seiki (Telepathy Shoujo Ran, 12-Sai.)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    The story begins with Hanabi, a sixth-grade girl who is neither an adult nor a child. She deals with issues such as accidentally witnessing her homeroom teacher kissing, and worrying about experiencing physiological changes before her friends. The series depicts a 12-year-old girl's innocent worries and first love.
    Seems cute and innocent enough... but also quite boring. :yawn: The OVAs that are already out are apparently half-length episodes, so maybe this TV series will follow the same format?


    Aikatsu Stars!


    Genre: Idols
    Animation Studio:
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 7, 2016
    Seiyuu: Tomita Miyu, Yamaguchi Megumi, Asai Ayaka
    Director: Satou Teruo


    (Original post by Summary:)
    The series will feature a new protagonist named Yume Nijino. Yume aims to become a top idol, and she enrolls in the Yotsuboshi Gakuen (Four Stars Academy). This academy has a special group called the S4, who are the top four active idols in the school. Yume and the other first-year students aim to become a part of the S4.
    Moving in to replace the previous Aikatsu series just as it ends, keeping up the franchise's unbroken 4-year run, except this time it's a spin-off with a new main character. Meh, not for me.


    Bakuon!!


    Genre: Seinen, Slice of Life, Sports
    Animation Studio: TMS Entertainment
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 5, 2016
    Seiyuu: Ueda Reina, Touyama Nao, Uchiyama Yumi
    Director: Nishimura Junji (Simoun, You're Under Arrest!)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    The story revolves around high school girls who discover the appeal of motorcycles. Sakura Hane is a high school student who looks a little bit like an airhead. On the way to her all-female high school one day, she is worn-out climbing a hilly road with a bicycle, but she sees a girl named Onsa Amano who is riding a motorcycle. Sakura immediately becomes interested in motorcycles, and she and Onsa join the motorcycle club at the school. Then, Sakura sets out to get her license.
    Another high school girls club slice of life anime; motorcycles are an original subject for one of these, though, and if the director's previous work on You're Under Arrest! is anything to go by, expect a lot of fanservice... from the vehicles. I'm curious, but not hugely excited by this one.


    Battle Spirits: Double Drive


    Genre: Action
    Animation Studio:
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 6, 2016
    Seiyuu: Koichi Makoto, Tamura Mutsumi, Hata Sawako
    Director: Sugishima Kunihisa (Yu-Gi-Oh!, Speed Grapher)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    Shunta Mogami loves the Battle Spirits game. One day he is transported by a light from a Battle Spirits card to Spirits World, the origin of all Battle Spirits. He meets a girl named Eto, who claims to have summoned him to Spirits World in order to prevent its destruction at the hands of the revived Evil God-King, who once plotted the destruction of Spirits World before being defeated and sealed away. Together with the confident, green-deck-wielding Yoku Albatrosa, who also came from another world, Shunta sets out to find the twelve God-Kings whose power originally sealed the Evil God-King.
    Children's card game anime haven't changed a lot over the past decade, have they? :p: As with Aikatsu, this will be continuing right where previous series Battle Spirits: Burning Soul left off... don't count on it being subbed, though.


    Beyblade Burst


    Genre: Adventure, Sci-Fi, Sports
    Animation Studio: Oriental Light and Magic
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 4, 2016
    Seiyuu: Inoue Marina, Enoki Junya, Okabayashi Fumihiro
    Director: Akiyama Katsuhito (Inazuma Eleven, *******!!)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    Bart Aoi is a hot-blooded kid who loves to attack and wields a Beyblade named Valkyrie. His close friend Shuu Kurenai is an elite Blader who is a genius but still puts in a lot of effort, and wields the Beyblade named Spriggan.
    Card games too tame for you? How about the 3rd generation of Beyblades? I never watched, played or collected this when I was younger, so I'm not even interested from a nostalgia point of view.


    Big Order


    Genre: Action, Shounen, Super Power
    Animation Studio: Asread
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 16, 2016
    Seiyuu: Morita Masakazu, Mikami Shiori, Harada Hitomi
    Director: Kamanaka Nobuharu (Big Order OVA, Meitantei Conan: Excalibur no Kiseki)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    The story centers on an introverted high school student named Hoshimiya Eiji with a huge secret — he wished for the destruction of the world when he was younger. Fairies give certain people special powers called Orders. What Order Users can do with their power depends on their wishes. 10 years after the Great Destruction, Eiji struggles to come to terms with his immense power.
    The synopsis and tags are relevant to my interests; I'm less excited by Asread being the producer, but then again they did a fine job with Mirai Nikki. I'll certainly be interested to see what direction the story takes.


    Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon: Crystal - Death Busters-hen


    Genre: Demons, Magic, Romance
    Animation Studio: Toei Animation
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 4, 2016
    Seiyuu: Mitsuishi Kotono, Hirohashi Ryou, Satou Rina
    Director: Kon Chiaki (Umineko no Naku Koro ni, Golden Time)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    The season adapts the Death Busters arc from the fifth and sixth volumes of the complete edition of Takeuchi Naoko's original Sailor Moon manga.
    More Sailor Moon Crystal~ I've not been watching these, as I was already watching the first 90s anime when the remakes started, but the trailer looks amazing as expected.


    Boku no Hero Academia


    Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy
    Animation Studio: Bones
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 3, 2016
    Seiyuu: Yamashita Daiki, Miyake Kenta, Yuuki Aoi
    Director: Nagasaki Kenji (No.6, Classroom Crisis)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    Midoriya Izuku was just a regular middle school student in a world where people with superpowers known as Quirks are the norm. However, he dreams of one day becoming a Hero, despite being bullied by his classmates for not having a Quirk. After being the only one to try and save his childhood friend, Katsuki, from a Villain, All Might, the world's greatest Hero, bestows upon him his own quirk, One For All. The story follows Izuku's entrance into Yuuei High School, a school that cultivates the next generation of Heroes.
    This is certainly getting a lot of hype, and Bones are a competent studio. The high school setting, though horrendously over-used, often still works if the place or the lessons are ridiculous enough. Most important question is, how interesting are these powers or 'quirks'? A definite maybe.


    Bungou Stray Dogs


    Genre: Mystery, Seinen, Supernatural
    Animation Studio: Bones
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 7, 2016
    Seiyuu: Uemura Yuuto, Miyano Mamoru, Kamiya Hiroshi
    Director: Igarashi Takuya (Soul Eater, Ojamajo Doremi)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    Nakajima Atsushi was kicked out of his orphanage, and now he has no place to go and no food. While he is standing by a river, on the brink of starvation, he rescues a man whimsically attempting suicide. That man is Dazai Osamu, and he and his partner Kunikida are members of a very special detective agency. They have supernatural powers, and deal with cases that are too dangerous for the police or the military. They're tracking down a tiger that has appeared in the area recently, around the time Atsushi came to the area. The tiger seems to have a connection to Atsushi, and by the time the case is solved, it is clear that Atsushi's future will involve much more of Dazai and the rest of the detectives!
    Hello again Bones! An interesting summary and fantastic trailer, I only hope it turns out to be better than a lot of the other mystery/detective series that have been churned out in recent seasons.


    Concrete Revolutio: Choujin Gensou - THE LAST SONG


    Genre: Action, Super Power
    Animation Studio: Bones
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 3, 2016
    Seiyuu: Ishikawa Kaito, Toyosaki Aki, Uesaka Sumire
    Director: Mizushima Seiji (Ooedo Rocket, Un-Go)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    Second season of Concrete Revolutio.
    ...Hello again, Bones! Amusing how their offerings this season ended up following each other alphabetically like this. Regarding Concrete Revolutio, I personally dropped the first series half-way through, so won't be picking this up.


    Duel Masters VSRF


    Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy
    Animation Studio:
    Japanese Airdate: Apr ?, 2016
    Seiyuu:
    Director:


    (Original post by Summary:)
    The new series will feature talking hamsters, as well as "amazing transfer students" who appear one after another. The video also confirms that Katta Kirifuda, the younger brother of the previous franchise lead Shoubu Kirifuda, will continue to star in the series.
    The 12th Duel Masters anime, continuing (as these usually do) right from where the currently airing VSR is due to end. Though it has a highly amusing summary and even more amusing trailer, nobody subs these things, so I'll be giving it a miss.


    Endride


    Genre: Adventure, Fantasy
    Animation Studio: Brain's Base
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 4, 2016
    Seiyuu: Ono Kenshou, Masuda Toshiki, Miyama Karen
    Director: Gotou Keiji (Kiddy Grade, Uta Kata)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    Endra is an unknown world beneath the surface of Earth, where the giant Adamas shines above, and seven-coloured bands drift across the skies. One day, Asanaga Shun, an ordinary yet positive and bright 15-year-old middle school boy who lives in the Land Above, discovers a mysterious crystal at his scientific businessman father's company, and the moment he touches the crystal, he is transported to Endra. There, he meets the recently captured 16-year-old prince Emilio, who strongly despises the current king, Deruzain, and was imprisoned after seeking vengeance against the monarch.
    This one's an original anime project with no source material, but though the whole 'sucked into a fantasy world' trope is old and tired, I'm still looking forward to this. Brain's Base are a good studio, and this has another good PV.


    Flying Witch


    Genre: Comedy, Slice of Life, Supernatural
    Animation Studio: J.C.Staff
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 10, 2016
    Seiyuu: Shinoda Minami. Suzuki Eri, Kayano Ai
    Director: Sakurabi Katsushi (Gunparade March, Asatte no Houkou.)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    The comical story follows the 15-year-old witch Kowata Makoto and the other boys and girls in her daily life. With her black cat Chito, the somewhat aimless girl moved from Yokohama to live with her second cousin at Aomori in verdant northern Japan.
    Looks like it'll be a fairly relaxing slice of life show, no turning people into frogs or burnings at stake or anything like that. :p: I'm vaguely interested, but I'll see what other, more plot-driven series the season has to offer first.


    Future Card Buddyfight DDD


    Genre: Game
    Animation Studio: Xebec, Oriental Light and Magic
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 2, 2016
    Seiyuu: Mizuno Marie, Saito Soma, Muranaka Tomo
    Director:


    (Original post by Summary:)
    The third Future Card Buddyfight TV series.
    Blah blah children's card game, blah blah continuing straight on from Future Card Buddyfight 100, etc etc. You know how these work by now. The one major difference is, Crunchyroll have been subbing the Future Card Buddyfight franchise, so you may actually get to watch this one if you so choose!


    Gakusen Toshi Asterisk 2


    Genre: Ecchi, Fantasy, Harem
    Animation Studio: A-1 Pictures
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 2, 2016
    Seiyuu: Tamaru Atsushi, Kakuma Ai, Izawa Shiori
    Director: Setou Kenji (Wooser no Sono Higurashi Kakusei Hen, Gakusen Toshi Asterisk)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    Second season of Gakusen Toshi Asterisk.
    I didn't watch the first series, opting instead for its doppelganger Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry, so I shan't be watching this either.


    Gekidol


    Genre: Music
    Animation Studio: Hoods Entertainment
    Japanese Airdate:
    Seiyuu:
    Director:


    (Original post by Summary:)
    A multimedia project that will combine stage theater, anime, and idols.
    Anichart is linking this to the current season, but I've not seen even a rough airdate listed elswhere. Until there's more information available, I don't have much to say about this, except that it's probably not my thing.


    Gyakuten Saiban (Ace Attorney)


    Genre: Comedy, Drama, Mystery
    Animation Studio: A-1 Pictures
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 2, 2016
    Seiyuu: Kaji Yuuki, Nakamura Chie, Tamaki Masashi)
    Director: Watanabe Ayumu (Nazo no Kanojo X, Uchuu Kyoudai)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    A rookie lawyer Ryuuichi Naruhodou stands up to save his defendants by proving their innocence from unusual cases!

    Is the defendant guilty or innocent...? Believing his client's innocence Naruhodou stands in court and battles his rival judges. With the word of "OBJECTION!" and limited evidence, Naruhodou makes a comeback when all odds are against him and seems like there is nothing more he can do. Don't miss out on the comical episodes between him and his mentor Chihiro Ayasato, assistant Mayoi Ayasato, rival prosecutor Reiji Mitsurugi, and numerous unique characters! The anime also depicts the childhood relationship between Naruhodou and his friends. With the skills inherited from his mentor Naruho reveals the truth!
    Figured I'd include the English title for this one, otherwise many game fans might not recognise it! I've never played the games myself, but if this anime impresses me then maybe I will in the future!


    Haifuri


    Genre: Slice of life
    Animation Studio: Production IMS
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 10, 2016
    Seiyuu: Natsukawa Shiina, Amamiya Sora, Tanezaki Atsumi
    Director: Nobuta Yuu


    (Original post by Summary:)
    With Japan having developed as a maritime nation, it becomes necessary to have specialized schools to teach skills essential to protect the sea. The setting is one such all-girls school. The girls who enroll here study to become blue mermaids through classroom instruction and learning practical skills. They live by the motto: In the sea we live, the sea we protect, and by the sea we go. They must excel in their studies and also adopt an international mindset. They are the Elite of the Sea, who are expected to be knowledgeable of the customs and cultures of other countries as well as their own.
    Yet another cute slice of life high school show, sure, but possibly educational about conservation, the sea in general, and about other cultures? If so, maybe this might be worth a look after all.


    Hundred


    Genre: Ecchi, Harem, Mecha
    Animation Studio: Production IMS
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 5, 2016
    Seiyuu: Hasegawa Yoshiaki, Mao, Ookubo Rumi
    Director: Kobayashi Tomoki (Tears to Tiara, Steins;Gate)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    A mysterious life form known as Savage is attacking the Earth, and there is only one weapon that can counter it: the Hundred. To become a Slayer, a master of military arts who wields this Hundred, Kisaragi Hayato enrolls in the marine academy city ship Little Garden. However, Hayato feels a strange yet familiar sense of incongruity towards Emile Crossford, his roommate who somehow knows him from somewhere. On top of that, as soon as he enters the school, he is challenged to a duel by the Queen, the school's most powerful Slayer, Claire Harvey.
    Magic school, generic-looking yet strangely irresistible male lead, immediately challenged to a duel by the school's elite, gratuitous boob-groping ensues? It's the same thing every season, just under a different (and not horrendously long for once) name! Not interested. :no:


    JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond is Unbreakable


    Genre: Action, Adventure
    Animation Studio: David Production
    Japanese Airdate: Apr ?, 2016
    Seiyuu: Ono Daisuke, Ono Yuuki, Sakurai Takahiro
    Director: Tsuda Naokatsu (Inu x Boku Secret Service)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    Fourth story arc of JoJo no Kimyou na Bouken series.

    The coastal town of Morioh is plagued by the "Bow and Arrow," an ancient artifact which manifests latent stand abilities in criminals and ordinary folk alike. At the same time as they are dealing with the huge influx of stand users—both good and bad—in Morioh, high schooler Jousuke Higashikata and his friends are searching for the culprit of a series of homicides.
    FINALLY, not only the first sequel that I'm planning on picking up, but the first series in general this season that genuinely has me excited. More JoJo's Bizarre Adventure can only be a good thing!


    Joker Game


    Genre: Historical, Military, Seinen
    Animation Studio: Production I.G
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 5, 2016
    Seiyuu: Shimono Hiro, Seki Tomokazu, Horiuchi Ken`yuu
    Director: Nomura Kazuya (Sengoku Basara Ni, Robotics;Notes)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    In the year 1937 on the eve of World War II, Lieutenant Colonel Yuuki of the Imperial Japanese Army forms the D Agency, an army intelligence outfit under his command and tutelage. Army General Staff attaches Lieutenant Sakuma to observe the unit's performance. D Agency casts a wide net to find agents beyond Japanese military personnel, and Yuuki establishes D Agency's tenets, which go against IJA doctrine: "Don't kill, don't get killed, don't get captured". With this, Yuuki trains a team of operatives who conduct missions against domestic and foreign powers.
    ...And here's the second series this season that looks amazing. A WWII-era spy show with Production I.G's usually high production standards? Yes please!


    Kaitou Joker 3


    Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Mystery
    Animation Studio: Shin-Ei Animation
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 4, 2016
    Seiyuu: Murase Ayumu, Shimono Hiro, Sawashiro Miyuki
    Director: Teramoto Yukiyo (Kaitou Joker, Kaitou Joker 2)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    Third season of Kaitou Joker series.

    The thief Mysterious Joker doesn't just steal things. An audacious and elusive miracle-maker, he travels the world searching for treasure with his partner and cook Hachi. As they circle the globe, they must avoid traps set by the police and compete in various competitions to reach their final goal, the Timeslip Treasure.
    Ah, Kaitou Joker. Mildly amusing, but nothing special. I have watched both previous series, and would be up for watching a third, but only if there's a shortage of other, really stand-out shows.


    Kamiwaza Wanda


    Genre: Sci-Fi
    Animation Studio: TMS Entertainment
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 16, 2016
    Seiyuu: Yamaguchi Kappei, Kokuryu Sachi, Katou Emiri
    Director: Hashimoto Mitsuo (Bakuten Shoot Beyblade G Revolution, Bakugan Battle Brawlers)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    In a world where everything is programmed and operated by mysterious monsters called Promin, all troubles (bugs) that happen around are caused by Bugmin, bugged Promin. With the help of space dog Wanda, a boy named Yuuto tries to catch as many Bugmin as possible before serious consequences emerge.
    While old franchises are being rebooted en-masse, a new challenger appears! At least, I assume this series is going to want to sell kids something, with Takara Tomy involved. Probably collectable Promin and Bugmin. Anyway, looks nice enough, but I'm a bit too old for it.


    Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn RE:0096


    Genre: Action, Drama, Mecha
    Animation Studio: Sunrise
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 3, 2016
    Seiyuu: Uchiyama Kouki, Ikeda Shuuichi, Fujimura Ayumi
    Director: Furuhashi Kazuhiro (Binchou-tan, Le Chevalier D'Eon)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    U.C. 0096. Three years after Char’s rebellion, Banagher Links, a boy who lives on the manufacturing colony Industrial 7, meets a mysterious girl named Audrey Burne. She claims to seek to prevent a potential war by interfering with the transfer of “Laplace's Box” from the Vist Foundation to a Neo Zeon remnant group known as the “Sleeves”.
    This is a TV airing of the Gundam Unicorn OVA series – I haven't watched that, so will gladly take it in TV-sized portions with the occasional extra scene or two! Should make a nice replacement for Iron-Blooded Orphans, and a nice rival for Macross Δ.


    Kiznaiver


    Genre: Sci-fi
    Animation Studio: Trigger
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 9, 2016
    Seiyuu: Kaji Yuuki, Terasaki Yuka, Maeno Tomoaki
    Director: Kobayashi Hiroshi (Kimi no Iru Machi: Tasogare Kousaten )


    (Original post by Summary:)
    The Kizuna System is an incomplete system for the implementation of world peace that connects people through wounds. Those connected to this system are called Kiznaivers, and when one is wounded, the system divides and transmits the wound among the other Kiznaivers.

    In Sugomori City, a Japanese city built on reclaimed land and with decreasing population, Sonozaki Noriko tells her classmate Agata Katsuhira: "You have been selected to be a Kiznaiver." Thus, he becomes connected to classmates whose lives and personalities completely differ from his.
    A really intriguing idea for a series, as expected for an original work from Trigger! I can think of a lot of interesting ways in which such a system could go wrong...


    Koutetsujou no Kabaneri


    Genre: Steampunk, Action, Shounen
    Animation Studio: Wit Studio
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 8, 2016
    Seiyuu: Hatanaka Tasuku, Senbongi Sayaka, Uchida Maaya
    Director: Araki Tetsurou (Death Note, Shingeki no Kyojin)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    As the world goes through the middle of an industrial revolution, a monster appears that cannot be defeated unless its heart, which is protected by a layer of iron, is pierced. By infecting humans with its bite, the monster can create aggressive and undead creatures known as Kabane.

    On the island Hinomoto, located in the far east, people have built stations to shelter themselves from these creatures. People access the station, as well as transport wares between them, with the help of a locomotive running on steam, called Hayajiro. Ikoma, a boy who lives in the Aragane Station and helps to build Hayajiro, creates his own weapon called Tsuranuki Zutsu in order to defeat the creatures.

    One day, as Ikoma waits for an opportunity to use his weapon, he meets a girl named Mumei, who is excused from the mandatory Kabane inspection. During the night, Ikoma meets Mumei again as he sees Hayajiro going out of control. The staff on the locomotive has turned into the creatures. The station, now under attack by Kabane, is the opportunity Ikoma has been looking for.
    From the staff and studio that brought us Attack on Titan comes a very similar looking series indeed... meh, I'm not complaining. The action scenes should be great, I like the early industrial/steampunk technology, and maybe it'll turn out to be less of a copycat than it looks?

    The manga follows Machi, a middle school student who serves as a shrine maiden at a Shinto shrine and takes care of a bear, who lives on mountain in Japan's northern Tohoku region. The bear, Natsu, has the ability to talk and is Machi's guardian. When Machi explains to Natsu that she will attend a school in the city, he gives Machi a set of trials that she must pass in order to be able to survive city life.
    I was expecting more of a slow-paced slice of life show, judging by the promo art and trailer thumbnail, but the video itself promised a lot in the way of comedy! As usual, if the first episode makes me laugh a lot, I'll likely pick this up.


    Kuromukuro


    Genre: Action, Mecha
    Animation Studio: P.A. Works
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 7, 2016
    Seiyuu: Azakami Youhei, Ueda Reina, Mao
    Director: Okamura Tensai (Wolf`s Rain, Nanatsu no Taizai)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    During the construction of the Kurobe Dam, an ancient artifact was discovered, and so the United Nations Kurobe Research Institute was established. Intellectuals from all over the world gathered to study the object, and the children of those researchers attend Mt. Tate International Senior High School, including the institute head's daughter, Yukina Shirahane. In the summer of 2016, a lone samurai once again awakens.
    P.A. Works can certainly deliver when it comes to animation quality, but their original stories have always been a bit hit-or-miss for me. With this one, the image caught my attention, the synopsis held my attention... and the trailer promptly lost it. Hopefully the first episode will do better than that?


    Kyoukai no Rinne 2


    Genre: Comedy, Romance, Supernatural
    Animation Studio: Brain's Base
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 9, 2016
    Seiyuu: Inoue Marina, Ishikawa Kaito, Nabatame Hitomi
    Director: Sugawara Seiki (D-Frag!, Kyoukai no Rinne)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    The shinigami Rinne Rokudou, and Sakura Mamiya, the girl who can see ghosts, attend the same school. The two spend their days solving the worries of spirits. Rinne is so poor that he is forced to borrow money from Sakura to buy shinigami tools to solve their cases. Rinne and Sakura care for each other, but their relationship is not progressing. However, with the appearance of a new contracted black cat, a beautiful damashigami, and a person with whom Rinne shares a special circumstance, the situation becomes even more chaotic! Rinne and Sakura's after-school time wrapped up in the world of spirits continues!
    I didn't watch the first series. Why didn't I watch the first series? Look at all those cat ears I'll now be missing out on. :bawling:


    Macross Δ


    Genre: Mecha, Military, Music
    Animation Studio: Satelight
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 3, 2016
    Seiyuu: Uchida Yuuma, Seto Asami, Suzuki Minori
    Director: Yasuda Kenji (Shugo Chara!, Ikoku Meiro no Croisee The Animation)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    Macross Delta is set in the year 2067, 8 years after the events of the latest Macross TV series, Macross Frontier. The story focuses on Walküre, a team of talented idols and Valkyrie pilots and the Delta Squadron, a team of experienced Valkyrie pilots as they battle against the Var Syndrome, a mysterious entity that is consuming the galaxy. But both must battle the mysterious Aerial Knights, a group of Valkyrie pilots from the Kingdom of Wind.
    It's actually happening this time~ Airing exactly 8 years after Macross Frontier, something they even managed to work into the plot! I'm ready for more mech fights and idol songs.


    Magi: Sinbad no Bouken


    Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy,
    Animation Studio: Lay-duce
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 15, 2016
    Seiyuu: Ono Daisuke, Fujiwara Keiji, Sakurai Takahiro
    Director: Miyao Yoshikazu (Special A, Magi: Sinbad no Bouken OVA)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    Spin-off of Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic.

    It tells the story of Sinbad's early life, when he captured two of the dungeons.
    I've not watched the OVAs, but presumably that won't matter? I hope not, as a return to the world of Magi would be an excellent addition to my lineup, and Sinbad's an interesting character.

    (Original post by Summary:)
    A shady bus tour of young men and women are headed to an elusive village called Nanakimura. A destination where people can partake in an utopian existence, free of the world's obstacles... or so goes the rumor.

    Heading deep into the mountains, the bus is carrying 30 different individuals, each harboring their own expectations and troubled hearts...

    What they had arrived to was an uninhabited village with lingering, faint scents of life and it was falling apart.

    Just what is the secret of Nanakimura?
    Every season, something slips completely under my radar, right up until I make this thread... I hadn't heard a thing about this, but it sounds as though it could get delightfully creepy! Again though, recent seasons have set a low bar for 'mystery' series, so hopefully it'll at least beat those.


    Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta?


    Genre: Comedy, Ecchi, Romance
    Animation Studio: Project No.9
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 7, 2016
    Seiyuu: Mao, Minase Inori, Toyonaga Toshiyuki
    Director: Yanagi Shinsuke (Rou Kyuu Bu! SS, Momo Kyun Sword)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    Nishimura Hideki is a young man who once confesses to a person he thinks is a girl online, only to find out that the person is actually a boy. He keeps this story secret and swears he'll never trust a girl online again. However, one day a girl online confesses to him, and it turns out she is actually a beautiful girl named Tamaki Ako. Ako cannot tell the difference between the online world and reality, and she is a loner who has trouble communicating. Hideki and his friends from the guild decide to work together in order to help her.
    I'm constantly amazed by how many ecchi anime are adapted from light novels – you'd think manga with its abundance of pictures would be the better medium for fanservice? Anyway... doesn't sound like a complete waste of time, but aside from the amusing name it hardly stands out either.


    Pan de Peace!


    Genre: Comedy, School, Slice of Life
    Animation Studio: Asahi Production
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 3, 2016
    Seiyuu: Kido Ibuki, Toyota Moe, Yamazaki Erii
    Director: Tsuji Hatsuki (Hime-chan no Ribbon, Akazukin Chacha)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    Minami is an airheaded girl who is starting high school and who loves eating bread for breakfast. Baked goods bring happiness everyday to her and her classmates — the reliable Yuu, the pastry-baking Fuyumi, and the independent Noa.
    And here's this season's token food anime~ Though maybe I shouldn't dismiss it offhand – it's adapted from a 4-koma manga, and I usually quite like the multiple, short gags that go with such adaptations. A dark horse, perhaps?

    [EDIT] Turns out this one's a short (5 minute episodes)


    PriPara 3rd Season


    Genre: Music, Shoujo, Slice of Life
    Animation Studio: Tatsunoko Production, Dongwoo A&E
    Japanese Airdate: Apr ?, 2016
    Seiyuu: Wakai Yuki, Akaneya Himika, Kubota Miyu
    Director: Moriwaki Makoto (Tantei Opera Milky Holmes, Hime Chen! Otogi Chikku Idol Lilpri)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    The third season of Pripara
    A lot of sites aren't even listing this or the second series as separate entities from the first, since it's been airing non-stop with little/no changes to staff, studio or the cast. No point in me jumping in part-way.


    Re: Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu


    Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Psychological
    Animation Studio: White Fox
    Japanese Airdate: Apr ?, 2016
    Seiyuu: Kobayashi Yuusuke, Takahashi Rie, Arai Satomi
    Director: Watanabe Masaharu (Wakaba Girl)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    Natsuki Subaru is an ordinary high school student who is lost in an alternate world, where he is rescued by a beautiful, silver-haired girl. He stays near her to return the favour, but the destiny she is burdened with is more than Subaru can imagine. Enemies attack one by one, and both of them are killed. He then finds out he has the power to rewind death, back to the time he first came to this world. But only he remembers what has happened since.
    Generic male lead dragged to a fantasy world, meets girl, gains power. So far, so generic... but where I was expecting the comedy and ecchi tags to be, I see drama and psychological instead! Maybe I can manage another one or two of these series before the format becomes unbearable.


    Sakamoto desu ga?


    Genre: Comedy, School, Seinen
    Animation Studio: Studio Deen
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 8, 2016
    Seiyuu: Midorikawa Hikaru, Sugita Tomokazu, Takahashi Mikako
    Director: Takamatsu Shinji (Gintama, Ixion Saga: Dimension Transfer)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    First year high school student Sakamoto isn't just cool, he's the coolest! Almost immediately after starting school, he began attracting everyone's attention. The girls love him, and most of the boys resent him. There's even a boy in the class who works as a model, but who is constantly upstaged by Sakamoto! No matter what tricks the other boys try to play on him, Sakamoto always manages to foil them with ease and grace. Though Sakamoto may seem cool and aloof, he helps others when asked, such as in the case of the boy in his class who was being constantly bullied. No matter what difficulties Sakamoto encounters, he moves through his high school life with confidence and class.
    I like the premise, and the manga seems to have been quite successful, so chances are good that this'll make my lineup.


    Sansha Sanyou


    Genre: Comedy, School, Slice of Life
    Animation Studio: Doga Kobo
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 11, 2016
    Seiyuu: Wakui Yuu, Imamura Ayaka, Kanazawa Mai
    Director: Kimura Yasuhiro


    (Original post by Summary:)
    Futaba Odagiri is the new transfer student with a super energetic personality; Teru Hayama is the class president with a surprisingly mean personality contrary to her innocent looks; and Youko Nishikawa is from a formerly rich, now extremely poor family who still holds on to her princess attitude. These three unlikely students with clashing personalities become good friends and survive the day-to-day teenage life in a very funny story.
    A 4-koma adaptation that has fun-sounding characters, AND bread to boot? There go Pan de Peace's chances of making my list! Sansha Sanyou looks far more promising.


    Seisen Cerberus: Ryuukoku no Fatalité


    Genre: Adventure, Fantasy, Action
    Animation Studio: Bridge
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 4, 2016
    Seiyuu: Matsuoka Yoshitsugu, Mao, Uchida Maaya
    Director: Kondou Nobuhiro (Kekkou Kamen, Nobunagun)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    On a continent ruled by sword and magic called Kunaaan, there are three kingdoms with a fragile power balance that could spell disaster and war at any moment. Another power, the evil dragon Daganzord, also resides on the continent, and no one is powerful enough to stop him from spreading destruction in his wake. Bairo and Kismitete, and a party of wizards attempted to seal the dragon, but were foiled. This event becomes known thereafter as the Balbagoa Tragedy. Bairo and Kismitete's son Hiiro is saved by Gill, and Hiiro swears to avenge his parents' deaths and trains himself with the sword. When Hiiro turns 16, he sets out on a journey to slay the dragon, and Gill accompanies him, having no choice. Along the way, they meet many types of people and gain companions on their journey.
    Cat ears in a non-sequel spotted! Crisis averted. I also like that it's a good, old-fashioned fantasy story, without any of the RPG-like features that have become popular in recent years. My only worry is the animation – definitely the lowest-budget action series of the season, going by the trailer.


    Shounen Maid


    Genre: Comedy, Shoujo, Slice of Life
    Animation Studio: 8bit
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 8, 2016
    Seiyuu: Fujiwara Natsumi, Shimazaki Nobunaga, Yamamoto Kazutomi
    Director: Yamamoto Yuusuke (NHK ni Youkoso!, B Gata H Kei)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    Komiya Chihiro is an energetic elementary school student who lives with his mom. Chihiro is very good at doing housework and chores, and his mother's motto is No work, no food. After his mother suddenly dies, a man named Takatori Madoka who claims to be his uncle shows up and asks Chihiro to come live with him. Chihiro initially refuses, but when he sees the horribly dirty state of Madoka's rich house he decides to start cleaning it. Then Madoka makes another offer to Chihiro: that he comes to live with him, but in exchange Chihiro will do the housework. Chihiro accepts this deal, but suddenly finds himself in a maid uniform.
    I think it's written somewhere in the small-print on my birth certificate (or was it my soul? :hmmmm2:) that I have to watch this. Or will my preference for action and plot come out on top, in this crowded season? Only time will tell...


    Sousei no Onmyouji


    Genre: Action, Fantasy, Supernatural
    Animation Studio: Studio Pierrot
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 6, 2016
    Seiyuu: Hanae Natsuki, Han Megumi, Murase Ayumu
    Director: Taguchi Tomohisa (Persona 3 the Movie, Persona 4 The Golden Animation)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    Rokuro is from a family of exorcists, but he'd rather be a singer, a soccer player or anything but an exorcist! He's forced to own up to his own incredible potential when new arrival Benio stirs his competitive spirit. But their rivalry gets a twist when they earn the prestigious title of "Twin Star Exorcists"—two supreme fighters fated to marry and birth the ultimate spiritual warrior!
    Hmm, I'm not feeling anything strongly positive or negative from this one. Shame the trailer didn't have more animation to show off. Just as well, my list is large enough already!


    Super Lovers


    Genre: Comedy, Drama, Shounen Ai
    Animation Studio: Studio Deen
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 6, 2016
    Seiyuu: Maeno Tomoaki, Minagawa Junko, Murase Ayumu
    Director: Ishihira Shinji (Ichi the Killer Episode 0, Fairy Tail)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    While spending summer with his mother, Haru meets Ren, a boy newly adopted by his mother. Getting along with Ren isn't easy as Haru's goal is to "civilize" him by the time summer ends. Their relationship slowly improves as Haru spends more time with Ren and in return Ren steadily warms up to him. Can they really become a "family" at the end of summer!?
    Studio Deen do their bit once again to bring shounen-ai to the TV anime market... this one's not for me, think I'll stick to the more innocent-looking Shounen Maid.


    Sword Gai


    Genre: Seinen
    Animation Studio: DLE
    Japanese Airdate:
    Seiyuu:
    Director:


    (Original post by Summary:)
    A woman died a suspicious death in the forest. Beside her, the sword-smith Amon finds a new-born boy with a tragic fate and takes him in. About 10 years later, this boy who is named Gai and who has become Amon's apprentice, loses his right arm in an accident while making a sword. Amon decides to take a sword called "Shiryuu", which is a sword with demonic powers that has been passed down for generations, and fashion it into an artificial arm for Gai. That was the beginning of it all...

    The story of this boy, who has become one with a demonic weapon and is drawn into a cruel fate in which he must face countless battles, can be seen as either the story of "a beautiful weapon and an ugly person" or of "the cruelty of weapons and the beauty of humans". This is a completely new world of comic noir.
    Again, blame Anichart if this doesn't air this season, as nobody else has a clue when it's coming out! Also worth noting is that DLE have never made a full-length episode series before – while this could be their first, it could just as easily be another short. Sounds cool, either way~


    Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge


    Genre: Comedy, School, Slice of Life
    Animation Studio: Silver Link
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 9, 2016
    Seiyuu: Ono Kenshou, Suwa AyakaTakamori Natsumi
    Director: Kawatsura Shin`ya (Kokoro Connect, Non Non Biyori)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    Sighing, leaning on his elbows, sleepy eyes. Tanaka-kun is a boy that basically doesn't try but isn't disliked. This is a laid-back youth comedy about Tanaka-kun and the quiet Oota who can't leave him alone.
    The guy's hardly Sakamoto, is he? The trailer left me feeling as tired and sleepy as he looked! I'm sure it'll be cute and funny and everything, but when it comes to first impressions, there's nothing there to appeal to me.


    Terra Formars Revenge


    Genre: Action, Horror, Sci-Fi
    Animation Studio: LIDENFILMS
    Japanese Airdate: Apr ?, 2016
    Seiyuu: Kenn , Itou Shizuka, Hosoya Yoshimasa
    Director: Fukuda Michio (Hyakko, Mayoi Neko Overrun!)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    With the space program attempting to travel to Mars, 21st century scientists were tasked with warming up the planet so that humans could survive on its surface. They came up with an efficient and cost effective plan of sending cockroaches and mold to the surface so that the mold would absorb the sunlight and the insect corpses would serve as a food source for the mold.

    It is now the year 2577 and the first manned ship to Mars has landed on the planet and the six crew members are ready for their mission. But what they find are giant mutated humanoid cockroaches with incredible physical strength. The crew members are easily wiped out, but not before sending a transmission back to Earth. Now, humanity will send elite warriors to exterminate the mutated bugs and claim back Mars.
    Revenge of the polka-dot head censorship! :zomg: Another series that I dropped, and have no major plans of going back to. PV's fun if you want to hear 30 seconds of people shouting, though!


    Tonkatsu DJ Agetarou


    Genre: Comedy, Music, Shounen
    Animation Studio: Studio Deen
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 10, 2016
    Seiyuu: Yamashita Daiki, Mao, Chafuurin
    Director: Daichi Akitarou (Kazemakase Tsukikage Ran, Fruits Basket)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    Agetarou works at his family's tonkatsu restaurant in Shibuya, but he's not very excited by the work. One day, he takes a delivery to the staff of a night club, and the worker lets him in to enjoy the club for a while. Agetarou finds that he loves the club, with its relaxed people and cute girls, all enjoying the music supplied by the DJ. He continues going to the club, until the night comes when the guest American DJ Big Master Fly puts on a show. Agetarou is inspired by Big Master Fly, and realizes that the groove of being a DJ is very similar to the groove of being a tonkatsu chef. Now Agetarou is determined to master both disciplines, though he is most excited to become a DJ!
    Well this one wins the award for most unusual plot... funny, seeing as it's one of the few that could plausibly happen in real life! :p: I'll definitely have to check this out, but don't know if it'll be for me.

    [EDIT] This one's apparently half length (11 minute episodes)


    Anne Happy


    Genre: Comedy, School, Slice of Life
    Animation Studio: Silver Link
    Japanese Airdate: Apr 7, 2016
    Seiyuu: Hanamori Yumiri, Yasuno Kiyono, Yoshioka Mayu
    Director: Oonuma Shin (Ef - a Tale of Memories., Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    The story centers around class 1-7 of Tennogofune Academy, where all the students with "bad karma" or misfortune seem to have been gathered. Hibari, a student in this class, meets the unlucky Hanako and the perennially unhealthy Botan on her first day of school, and together they try to find a way to turn their school life into a happy one.
    Enjoy laughing at other peoples' misfortune? This could be the series for you! I'm not sold just yet, but let's see how funny the first episode turns out to be.


    Ushio to Tora 2


    Genre: Comedy, Demons, Supernatural
    Animation Studio: MAPPA
    Japanese Airdate: Apr ?, 2016
    Seiyuu: Hatanaka Tasuku, Koyama Rikiya, Komatsu Mikako
    Director: Nishimura Satoshi (Trigun, Binbougami ga!)


    (Original post by Summary:)
    The second season of Ushio to Tora.
    The first series of Ushio to Tora was alright, I quite enjoyed it, though it sat at the bottom of my weekly blog rankings for most of its run. Unless the plot picks up in this second half, I fear that could happen again. Like Kaitou Joker, a safe reserve series to fall back on if the newer shows disappoint.

    The hype has me curious, but other than that there's not much that makes it stand out for me. I'll give the first episode a chance though, to see what all the fuss is about for myself.

    Amazon Prime enters the simulcast market, licensing Koutetsujou no Kabaneri! The article suggests they have worldwide streaming rights, but only confirms it'll be available in Japan and America. Just when the other licensors seemed to finally be acknowledging the UK market as well...

    What? Amazon Prime's entering the UK Anime Market? :lolwut:

    Under the current "Prime TV" category, they list Avatar Seasons 1-3, The Legend of Korra, Monsuno and a tonne of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl series...

    I mean, I'd be very happy if they DID start moving into the anime business, but you'd think they'd expand their current database first

    - Big Order
    - Endride
    - Kiznaiver
    - Re: Zero Kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu
    - Seisen Cerberus: Ryuukoku no Fatalité

    A shorter list than usual, but we'll have to wait and see what Crunchyroll picks up which will define which of the above, if any, I can actually watch

    In what is likely to be a dwindling list after watching the 1st eps, here's my list:
    · Big Order
    · Boku no Hero Academia
    · Bungou Stray Dogs
    · Endride· Flying Witch
    · Gakusen Toshi Asterisk 2
    · Gyakuten Saiben (Ace Attorney)
    · Hundred· JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4
    · Joker Game
    · Kiznaiver
    · Koutetsujo no Kabaneri
    · Kuromukuro
    · Macross Delta
    · Mayoiga
    · Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta?
    · Sakamoto desu ga?
    · Seisen Cerberus
    · Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge

    I'm not particularly excited by much, aside from Sakamoto desu ka? since I have the 1st two manga volumes.
    I've read the first 40 or so chapters of Boku no Hero Academia and found it quite entertaining. I can't see it being the new 'big' shounen like OP & Fairy Tail but it's better than a fair few to come out lately.
    I placed Jojo on the list but I still need to finish off Stardust Crusaders first so it'll depend if I get round to getting that finished first
