Last season I was premature in saying it wouldn’t be fulfilling, though for the most part that has somewhat been truthful all things considered. This season however, I’m sure I’ll have plenty of shows to check out. How many I’ll actually cover depends on the content per episode. I’ll explain as I mention my picks.
Since this post is a premature one and there’s still time for changes to be made in the Spring lineup I will update it as we get closer to said season.
Update: Rage of Bahamut: Manaria Girls delayed. That sucks.
Picks are based on these two charts though one is kinda dated because we know “SHOW By ROCK!! Shorts!!” will air during the Summer.
Pan de Peace: Cute girls baking cute things. This has “shipping gold mine” written all over it.
OG coverage? Yes.
Bakuon!!: Looks like we’ll be getting the motorcycle Girls Club anime before the bicycle one. No complaints here. Hopefully this one will actually be about motorcycle girls and not deviate from it. “Looks at Rolling Girls”.
OG Coverage? Yes.
Sailor Moon Crystal: Death Busters Arc. The first two seasons of Sailor Moon Crystal got mixed results but I personally enjoyed them despite their flaws. I was told that the Death Busters Arc is one of the best in the series. Here’s hoping the writers won’t have the remote on fast forward this time around and take time developing everyone, ESPECIALLY the legendary tag team.
OG coverage? When the legendary tag team debuts, they get yurirific screen time and whenever Sailor Saturn hits on Chibi-Usa…if it happens in this version.
Hai-Furi. I want to go into this anime as blind as possible because the concept of “women working as guardians of the seas” has so much potential to be “made of win”.
OG Coverage? Most likely.
Sansha Sanyou and Unhappy!: Two Girls Club shows. Nuff said. The former has a guy roaming around but I won’t cry foul unless absolutely necessary
OG Coverage? Yes.
Kuma-Miko: Girl Meets Bear. It’s anime starring a miko and a bear. I repeat. It’s an anime starring a miko and a bear. IT’S AN ANIME STARRING A MIKO AND A BEAR!
Flying Witch sounds like a lot of fun show to watch.
OG coverage? The shows look fun to watch but I don’t think fans will be interested in my covering them. Plus I don’t know if they’ll have enough material to discuss here, not yuri material per se but Girls Club material.
Onigiri: Another show about sexy beasts in a fantasy/medieval setting based on a game with lots of them. Most of the ones I’ve seen ranged from decent to enjoyable so I think this one will be the same. That or it’ll be like Bikini Warriors which works too.
OG coverage? Depends.
Aikatsu Stars: Heard this was going to be a new series and it was not necessary to have seen the first series to enjoy. If that’s the case I’ll try a couple of episodes and see if I can fit it into my packed schedule.
Usakame is another Teekyuu! spin-off and will be more of the same so even though I’ll watch it there’s very little material to discuss here weekly.
I didn’t split the shows between MUST WATCH and Curiosities this time because as readers can see, I’m packed. Add to that the fact that I have some upcoming Yuri Visual/Kinetic novels besides FLOWERS to play and review and you can tell I have plenty of material to keep the blog active. Not to mention something historic will happen on February 27th, 2016.
