OG’s Summer 2016 Anime Picks

OG-Logo

It’s that time again where I announce my (95% sure) anime picks for an upcoming season. This time we’ll be taking a look at the Summer 2016 lineup. As always some shows could be added later on based on schedule changes or reliable sources.

My picks are based on these charts:

MUST WATCH

New Game! Poster

New Game!

I’ve always dreamed of a “women’s club” where it’s about older women doing whatever they want to do but I can imagine how hard it would be to not only make that entertaining but appealing to animeniacs so New Game! is the closest thing I’m getting. Besides, this is a show about cute and sexy office women developing video games. How could I not be excited for it?

Regalia The Three Sacred Stars Poster

Regalia: The Three Sacred Stars

I’ve been assured that this show will center around a female cast…and it features mechas so that’s a plus. Now I hope it won’t be as melodramatic as Sora no Method.

Love Live Sunshine!!

Love Live! Sunshine!!

I’ll be one of the very few Love Live! fans out there WON’T be comparing Aqours to μ’s to see if they’re worthy successors or not. I have a strong feeling this show will be wonderful.

Ange Vierge Poster

Ange Vierge

To be honest I’m tired of worrying about whether this show will sneak in a male protagonist or not. Whatever happens, happens because the trailers have done enough to pique my interest.

Illya 3rei

Magical Girl Illya 3rei.

By now we all know what to get hyped for and what will make us cringe on this series so yeah. Not much to say.

Amanchu Poster

Amanchu!

This show looks visually stunning. Besides, a show about cute girls scuba diving from the writers of the Aria series. Sounds good to me.

Show By Rock!! Short!

Should keep us amused as we wait for SBR 2.

Curiosities

Time Travel Girl

I have no idea what to expect but the leading ladies are voiced by K-ON seiyu so it has that going for it.

Fudanshi Kouko Seikatsu and Magical Boys 2

Some shows for Dr Animaniac and I to discuss when able. Maybe Mako-Tachi as well but that all depends on his mood.

Any other anime depend on what trusted associates have to say about them.

About OG-Man

Yuri and Slice of Life are my anime passion.

    My own list (so far):
    – Must Watch –
    Ange Vierge – Like you, I’m just gonna go for it
    Danganronpa (Mirai and Zetsubou) – Played all the games already. So pretty invested in this series.
    Fate Illya 3rei – This is the show’s last chance to do a season right again. I’ve got good hopes for this one based on feedback from manga readers though.
    Love Live Sunshine – Like you, I’m not gonna be comparing them to Muse. Also, really excited to see how they handle Yohane. SOOO much potential for a great character. Not everyday you get someone hit with terrible luck, and instead of complain about it, turn it into something amazing (chuuni). I also really like Chuuni girls xD
    New Game – Read a decent amount of the manga, not missing out on this!
    Regalia – I have good hopes for this one!
    Re Zero – Been watching and enjoying this so far, so cant’ see why i would stop for the second cour
    Show by Rock Short – Please be good!

    Will try out –
    Ammaama to Inazuma – Please don’t go incest…please………
    Kono Bijitsu-bu – Just don’t go harem…PLEASE
    Qualidea Code – Seems interesting
    Time Travel Shoujo – Maybe might be interesting..possibly
    Not touching with a 100 mile pole –
    Masou Gakuen HxH – A show entirely about a guy making girls stronger by arousing them…no…just no

    Surprised you weren’t interested in Mob Psycho. You seem to have liked One punch man enough (it’s by the same author)

      Maybe I’ll check out Re: Zero when able.

      Maybe Inazuma will be like Papakiki.

      I picked up OPM when it ended and because of reliable hype. The same thing could very likely happen with Mob Psycho. I’ll wait and see before checking it out.

    My list:

    New Game: About a girl who takes work as an artist at her favorite game company, the manga is very good and there are many potential yuri pairing, I hope the anime is very good too 😀
    Regalia: The design character from Sora no Method, but don’t compared with Sora no Method because the director is different, I have a good feeling this anime will be yuri mecha 😀
    Ange Vierge: I’ve discussed: https://yurination.wordpress.com/2016/05/16/ange-vierge-2nd-trailer/, so I think Ange Vierge will be yuri harem 😀
    Love Live! Sunshine!!: So far the manga is very good, I hope the anime is very good too and Chika will be harem leader 😀
    Magical Girl Illya 3rei: Really excited for this since the Miyu x Illya is going strong in the manga.
    Time Travel Girl: This is original anime and I think there will be yuri friendship.
    Show By Rock!! Short!: For fill your free time.
    Amanchu!: I heard there is yuri friendship in the manga.

    Wow I am surprised you aren’t taking up Keijo, there are a lot of Yuri undertones in that. Got to love water sports anime.

    No idea which I’ll be watching yet, so I’ll get back to you on that when I make my list, but I’ll definitely be checking out those two you mentioned we might discuss because they should be good. Seems to be a lot of interesting shows coming for the summer at first glance, but I wonder if it’ll overtake this season and all the surprisingly good shows it’s given us? Guess time will tell.

    For me New Game!, Love Live! Sunshine!! and Show by Rock must be watched. As a Slice-of-Life show fan, Amanchu! also looks intriguing.
    So glad that the next season appears as promising as the present.
