OG’s Fall 2016 Anime Picks


This post which I wrote months ago is here to remind fans that I’ll be going on vacation from October 10th to November 8th. Around that time I’ll more than likely not post anything but know that upon my return I’ll write halftime impressions for most of the shows listed here…which are A LOT!

The only one I may not write one for or cover afterward is Euphonium 2. I’ll think about it when I get back but most likely the plan will be to review it when it’s done.

Picks based on these two charts:




My #1 hype show of the season. It’s bikini sumo wrestling (-ish)! Nuff said.


Brave Witches

It isn’t the 501st Joint Wing but it’s more magical airplane girls (WITH SOME OF THEM WEARING PANTS THIS TIME!) based on historical airplane pilots kicking Neuroi butt and snuggling with each other during their spare time. BRING IT!


Long Riders

In the Spring 2016 season we got an anime about cute girls riding motorcycles. The next logical step is an anime about girls riding bicycles. To ease some fans’ worries I don’t think this show will be as ecchi nor include religion.

Flip Flappers

Flip Flappers

I have no idea what this show will be about but it stars two cute girls on a crazy multidimensional adventure and that’s good enough for me.


Lostorage Incited WIXOSS

A new WIXOSS show centered around a new cast. Nuff said.

Show By Rock Season 2 Visual

Show By Rock!! 2

Hopefully we’ll get much more Retoree X Cyan material this time. Also I’ll get to see more of the sexy Master Daru Dayu.


Vivid Strike!

This spin-off will amuse us until Vivio decides to (hopefully) continue her own journey sometime next year.


Stella no Mahou

We already got an Office Lady anime about cute and sexy young women developing video games so the next logical step is a Girls Club about cute girls developing doujin games. Heck yes I’m hyped for it!

Mahou Shoujo nante mou Ii Desukara second season

Mahou Shoujo Nante mou Ii Desukara!? 2

More Quiet Girl goodness.

Shakunetsu no Takkyuu Musume Visual Art

Shakunetsu no Takyu Musume.

A ping pong Girls Club show. Sign me up!


Girlish Number

Another show about the life of seiyu. I enjoyed Sore ga Seiyu so I’m down for another one.


Shuumatsu no Izetta

Shuumatsu no Inazuma.

This has been updated with an ANN article. This is a show set in a fictional World War 2 setting starring a witch who will fight to protect her princess. Sounds like a yurirific formula to me.


Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku

Another magical girl show and from what I hear it could be a dark one.



A mystery show featuring cute girls. Unfortunately the episodes will be short.


Soushin Shoujo Matoi

Definitely looks like a fun show that’s right up my alley. We’ll see how good it is and fulfills the Nation.

Idol Memories Poster

Idol Memories.

Last time I saw a futuristic idol show it was AKB0048 and there’s also Idolm@ster Xenoglossia which got mixed results. We’ll see what happens.


Watashi ga Motete Dousunda

A reverse-harem led by a diehard yaoi shipping fangirl. Also there seems to be one girl with a crush on the lead. It sounds both funny and fulfilling.

Sound! Euphonium

Hibike! Euphonium 2

The mixed mega hype and mega dread reaction in the Yuri Nation has all but dried up my enthusiasm for the show. I wanted to tease hyper fans of the show like Loli Tsubasa but even that doesn’t sound like fun anymore. Right now I have a “Whatever happens, happens” mindset for the show. Whether KumiRei becomes canon, remains “shippable” or is destroyed in S2…whatever dood. It’d be cool if the first option happens. Option 2 is great for fans who love to ship the two and option 3…eh. At least the show will most likely be good beyond the romance.

Once again if any changes come up I’ll update the list accordingly.

    About Longriders: It’s ecchi, but I’d say it’s done more skillfully. I don’t know how they’ll handle it in the animated version of course, but I think it should be better than Bakuon on that end. Still, people who are adverse to ecchi, have been warned to be on their guard. Again, I don’t think it’ll be as bad as Bakuon, but you never really know.. Also, They’re all college-age, so no people whining about underage girls! There’s also a much better variety on the “sizes” spectrum, so that’s a nice bonus too. It also seems much more shippy than Bakuon was, so another bonus! Easily one of my most hyped shows of that season~

    Just wanted to add that information as someone who has the manga raws.

    Haha, and i post this just few minutes ago X)
    “Hey, OG, did your see/hear about “Shūmatsu no Izetta”? If yes, well, what do you think? My own opinion that we have very potential pure yuri and mature relationship between Izetta and Fine, i hope. Anime starts around October. Anyway, I just wanted to draw your attention to this.”
    And another my own opinion about “Shūmatsu no Izetta” – just look, how they look at each other with such tenderness lovers and how they hold each other – sisters or friends do not look at each other and do not hold hands so. As if Izetta and Fine wants to say “I love you with all my heart”, and Fine wants to answer “I love you too to the depth of my soul”. Like that )

      Thanks for the tip.


    • OG-Man says:

      So yeah I’m interested in this title. Dunno what to expect but it looks promising.


      • Anoniwys says:

        I’m too don’t know, what to expect and this is because of the two parts:
        1st – We know almost nothing about this anime.
        2nd and main – Fine is a princess and we all know the arranged marriage etc…
        But i really hope that we have there pure and strong yuri. I’m just looking at the two of them, and my heart squeezes from happy! Really, how they look each other! I think, Izetta and Fine wants some private moment – doing science/magic babies etc, you know? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
        Anyway, i really have very high hope about Last witch Izette. Let’s hope together! 😀

        Gotta wait for trailers and more plot info for now.


  3. Brave Witches, Show by Rock!! season 2, more Wixoss, more Nanoha/Vivid (sort of lol), and hopefully announcements for season 2 of Yuuki Yuuna finally being greenlit. That’s what I’m looking forward to this fall.

    And I’m also going to check out Matoi the Sacred Slayer because the trailer looked beautiful. It’ll probably be Gochiusa meets Akame ga Kill though XD

    Since the beginning of the year, i have tried of ignore everything about Strike Witches and Hibike, because the wait is too long so i said myself: “myself, calmdown, keep your heart and soul away from those series. You adore them and everything will be so fine..”. Therefore, i will pretend that i didn’t read this post….i’m gonna walk slowly through my room, my yard and once outside, i will run and scream out loud: I FU*****ING LUV KUMIREI AND I DON’T CARE HOW THAT ENDS, IS THE BEST SHIP EVER!……cof!. So, see you soon….


  6. FantasyGirlKanna says:

    Ohh~! This early list honestly surprised me but there’s nothing wrong with that, at least I know what to expect 😀

    I’m really looking forward to all the “Must Watch” shows. Show by Rock, will Cyan be transported back or vice versa? Vivid Strike means more action and explosions. Brave Witches, more cute girls with animal ears fighting of evil aliens. Long Riders is actually one of the shows I’m really excited about because I’m guessing this is going to be sports and I like that genre. I’m hoping someone would make Car Graffiti JK next, cute girls with cars this time.

    Shuumatsu no Izetta, if I’m not mistaken, is about a witch (the red one in the poster) and a princess. The setting is during war times in Europe and the witch has dedicated herself in protecting the princess…something like that. http://moca-news.net/article/20160715/2016071518000c_/01/ I just had google translate for me 😛 Really really curious about this one :3

    Hibike is…hmm, I’m honestly having mixed feelings about this show. I’m both excited and anxious…I just need to prepare myself for this one. Expect the worse and silently hope for that Option 1 or at least the Option 2.

    • OG-Man says:

      Yup. All the “Must Watch” shows are pretty much what fans of mine would expect me to pick up.
      Really intrigued by Shuumatsu no Izetta.
      Not too concerned about Euphonium 2’s KumiRei outcome myself. Whatever happens, happens.

    Wait, Fall preview already? Summer barely started.

    Aside from that, I kind of wanted to watch Show by Rock 2, but I need to marathon the first season first. I also look forward to the second season of Hibike, but I also want to watch the movie too. But hopefully, things will be better blog-wise… but aside from that, hopefully Fall will have a good number of enjoyable shows…

    Also, have fun on your vacation in October. I already went on mine in early July.

      Yup. To get it out of the way. Also there are already plenty of shows that caught my interest.

      Hopefully you’ll be able to watch the movie at some point.

      Give SBR! a go. It’s enjoyable.

      Thanks. Hope your vacation was a fun one.

    I was also gonna mention something about how this is a bit early for a fall preview, but yeah there are quite a few shows worth talking about.

    A good number of the anime you mentioned here are on my list, but yeah looks like some great potential yuri shows. Other returning favorites (non-yuri shows I mean) during that season too, but overall it’s looking like it’ll be a great season. Looking forward to reading your thoughts on the shows you mentioned.

  11. Hey OG! Do you already ksnow about the Miracle Girls Festival game for ps vita !? I’m with so much hype for it! (I don’t have a PSvita, but i will pray for the PC version along all days!) 😀


  12. Dimdom says:

    My attention was focused on three original anime: Flip Flappers, Shuumatsu no Izetta and Matoi the Sacred Slayer 😀

    I’m also looking forward to Brave Witches and Vivid Strike too 😀

    Don’t forget Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku confirms it’s October 2016 premiere in Japan, it is darker than Madoka but because Hiroyuki Hashimoto (GochiUsa) is attached to direct the TV anime adaptation, so there is hope for better yuri in the anime.

    And Nazotokine seems all-girls cast, it’s about puzzle-solving and Premiere in October (I hope it is not a short anime).

    Fall is very good season, if we get one anime full yuri, it could be the best season in history.

    I hope Citrus or Yagate Kimi ni Naru will be adapted into an anime.

    Wow, we’ve got so many shows to choose in the coming season!
    With Hibike Euphonium 2 and Show by Rock 2 in the same season, it greatly reminds me of 2015 spring season. Although it lacks KinMosa3 (please get well soon, Miss Taneda…), the season will have several SoL and Girls Club shows instead, which I should be liking.

    As of now, Long Riders and Stella no Mahou are the new anime that interest me the most. I’m looking forward to reading your reviews.
