This list is old, especially because the Sailor Moon reboot was postponed. I’ll update the list when an official lineup is released. For now, my picks are based on Googling.
No personal life schedule comments here. I’m simply sharing my picks for the Summer season. Nothing more, nothing less.
One last thing before I continue, Summer looks like it’s going to be SOOOOOOOOOO OG-TACULAR!
Ongoing shows I’ve liked from the Spring Season will continue into the Summer.
Anyway, the list will be divided between “must watch”, “curiosities” and maybe. No pictures this time because I’m lazy.
–Hyperdimension Neptunia TV. This will be the very first anime adaptation of a source I have actually played. I predict this show, like the game series, will be dropped or criticized by 99% of the aniblogosphere. As for me, I’ve been waiting an entire year for this one. All I ask for is no male leads or hetero harems. Otherwise, I have a ticket to Japan and machete ready. Hopefully Japan is less forgiving of anime adaptations of video games than Hollywood is. Then again, there’s very little to horribly screw up with Neptunia other than what I’ve mentioned.
–Tamayura: More Aggressive. Weird subtitle for a very lighthearted slice of life show like Tamayura aside, I still have to finish the first TV season.
–Milky Holmes 3: The more serious 2 episode OVA wasn’t bad but Milky Holmes is popular for being hilarious, random and insane, which is what I am expecting more of in the 3rd season. Still, how can the gloriously hilarious 2nd season be topped?
–Symphogear G: Personal wishes: 1) Have Hibiki and Miku confess their love for each other and kiss on screen. 2) Pair up Chris and Tsubasa. If you think about it for a bit, the pairing kinda makes sense. Other than that, more awesome musicals, ass kicking and fanservice.
–Servant X Service. It’s from the lady who wrote “Working!”. I do hope there will be another breakout star like the legendary Mini-Goddess, Yamada.
–That Magical Girl Show starring Ilya Einzbern: This show will mark the official anime debut of Luviagelita (Carnival Phantasm doesn’t count.). OG likey the cocky and haughty wrestling aristocratic magician rival of Rin Tohsaka very much. That is the only reason I want to see it.
–Free! I’ve already talked about this one but to sum it up: It’s a Boys’ Club show coming from a studio worshiped for its moe-ness. The so-called fans are outraged, that makes me happy.
–Stella Jougakuin Koutou-ka C3-bu: Sounds like an ECCHIMANIA show, with less fanservice. Hey, it’s a show where cool and sexy ladies kick ass. Fine by me.
BTW Gainax, WHERE THE HELL IS PANTY AND STOCKING 2!? Oh, and for the comments, if you’re going to explain why, do not flood the section with explanations. A simple one is enough.
–Love Lab: This one could end up being yurirific but I am not holding my breath.
–Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou. The #1 curiosity on this list because I am only basing this pick on the girl and her mirror self. That’s it.
–Kiniro Mosaic. A Girls’ Club show starring Japanese and English girls. My cup of tea indeed.
–Silver Spoon. Sounds like one of those rare epiphany inducing SoL shows. Interesting.
–Kitakubu. More anime starring a group of girls doing whatever nonsense they can think of. I can already hear the sound of angry critics running their mouths and clamoring for “the old days”. Poor, uptight fools.
–Inu to Hasami wa Tsukaiyou. It all depends on the quality of the male lead’s suffering. I have a feeling this will be a harem. Anyway, if he is physically and mentally tortured in creative ways, I might give it a shot. The summary doesn’t do much for me. It’s all about the quality of the male lead torture sessions.
