OG’s Winter 2017 Anime Picks

Hopefully I won’t get swamped again during the Winter 2017 season. As always whenever I announce my seasonal anime picks the list is subject to change and I shall update it whenever that happens. I won’t split the shows between MUST WATCH and CURIOSITIES this time around as all of these look like they’re right up my alley.

Winter 2017 Anime picks.jpg

Picks based on this chart:


From left to right:

SCHOOLGIRLS STRIKERS Animation Channel: Looks like another super armored girls show. Works for me.

Kobayashi-chan Chi no Maidragon: I’ve said this several times when it comes to KyoAni and this show. All KyoAni has to do, besides wirte a good script, is keep the lesbians on the show openly gay and not do the “KyoAni thing” by making their gayness subtle or ambiguous. Be it romantic or horny, NO HOLDING BACK!

BanG Dream: Another all-girl music club or band themed anime. I like that too.

Urara Meirochou: A girls club show about a group of fortune tellers.

Minami Kamakura Koukou Joushi Jitensha-Bu: Another bicycle girls club show. Hopefully this one won’t suffer a delay halfway through.

nyanko-days: I predict this anime will try to kill me with cuteness.

Gabriel Dropout: Girls club show featuring angels and demons. Heard really good things about this one.

Idol Jihen: Another idol show.

Kemono Friends: More cute chibi animal girls.

Little Witch Academia TV: I’m sure many animeniacs are eagerly anticipating this one.

      Unlikely thatt the trend will end anytime soon so it’s best to find the shows with the strongest yuri vibes while waiting for the ones that don’t hold back on the yuri at all.

    My own list (currently anyway) –

    Akiba Strip – game was pretty fun, maybe since this doesn’t have to have routes, we could some yuritext (the game had a decent amount, so hopefully they can go more all out this time)
    Granblue Fantasy – Game apparently has actual yuri couple/s, so I’ll give it a try
    Idol Jihen – Aidorus!
    Kemono Friends – might be interesting, depending on where they go with it
    Konosuba S2 – (Not ready for Megumin being turned into a piece of the harem pie ;_; )
    Piace: watashi no Italian – Could be amusing
    Schoolgirl Strikers – Waiting for more info first. While it sounds neat, “team leader” could easily be a guy and this could be a boring harem. Heck, it could be a girl and still do that…

    Will Watch:
    BanG Dream! – Looks like it might be another half live half anime project. Should be interesting!
    Gabriel Dropout – Read some of the manga, absolutely loved it!
    Kobayashi – Love the manga, but Kyo-ani….
    Nyanko Days – Read a couple chapters, and it is all levels of my sort of show~
    Urara Meirochou – I like occult sort of stories, so pretty hype for this!
    Ai Mai Mi – Season 2 was a bit off at times, but hopefully season 3 will fully remedy that!
    Little Witch Academia – #StillNeedsToSeeTheOVAs
    Minami Kamakura Highschool Bicycle club – Should be interesting!

    I think you forgot about the next year’s Precure, Kirakira Precure Ala Mode. Though we still have no idea what it is all about.


  4. Ivn says:

    I hope this season is good. So far I’m only intersted in the one with lesbian charizard and witch academia which I hope they dont f*ck up somehow.

    I’ll have to check some of the other PV’s.

    The stuff I’ll be watching for winter is pretty much exactly what you have listed here. The three shows I’m most anticipating are Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, Little Witch Academia and Gabriel Dropout.

    This looks like an interesting list, so I’ll be looking forward to your coverage on them. As for me, my list is TBD, so I’ll get back to you on that at a later date.

    I’m really looking forward to the winter season. And I’m most excited about one: Kobayashi-chan Chi no Maidragon, I totally agree there should be no holding back on this one whatsoever hopefully KyoAni would just let the characters be freely gay, and two: Little Witch Academia TV, how I missed this 😀

    Not a lot really stands out for me next season, I’ve only got 13 so far but out of the shows you listed above, 5 are on my list. Honestly the only show that I’m actually really hyped for has to be Konosuba S2. Nothing else really grabs my attention, but I’m sure there will be some shows that catch me by surprise. Either way, I look forward to another season of your thoughts on the shows you’ll be watching.

    Sounds like KyoAni likes keeping lesbians in the closet. Who knows why in this day and age.

    • OG-Man says:

      On rare occasion they do have a lesbian come out but most of the time they have the audience fill in the blanks. In Euphonium it’s more pandering than giving, which lucky for them is working. Still unsure whether they’ll do the right thing, mess it up or maintain the staus quo of pandering subtlety.

      With Dragon Maid they can’t go the subtle route again, nor can they have the lesbian character lose like they did in Tamako Market.

    My top list:

    Schoolgirl Strikers Animation Channel: Mobile games developed by Square Enix gets a manga adaptation, light novel adaptation and TV Anime adaptation, I’m excited to see yuri pairing: Io x Mana 😀

    BanG Dream: My dream comes true 😀 BanG_Dream! gets TV Anime Adaptation, hopefully the anime will gets good yuri like Love Live! Sunshine!! 😀 Kasumi (MC) x Arisa x Saaya 😀 BanG Dream! gets a manga adaptation, novel adaptation and mobile games too.

    Kobayashi-san Chi no Maidragon: Hopefully KyoAni would just let the girls be freely yuri.

    Urara Meirochou: The manga gets good rating in the Japanese yuri blog, hopefully the anime will gets good yuri like Kiniro Mosaic or GochiUsa.

    Minami Kamakura Koukou Joshi Jitensha-Bu, Nyanko Days, Gabriel Dropout,
    Idol Jihen, Kemono Friends and Little Witch Academia is interesting too 😀

    Wait. What was the other bicycle girls club? Hopefully there’s a bicycle tag here (tons of serious catching up to do with watching, honestly)

    Hopefully the winter anime will be enjoyable although I can only come up with two shows. Probably wait for the other shows to air before deciding on the third.
