OG’s Spring Anime 2018 Picks

Another season of anime to check out is upon us. As always yours truly will be taking a look at charts and find out which ones he’ll be watching and/or covering. As always other shows I don’t pick right away may be added to my schedule depending on fan feedback.

Charts used:

Tachibanakan Triangle


Tachibanakan Triangle/Love To Lie Angle: The biggest hope is for each episode to be longer than 7-9 minutes. Other than that I’m super excited for this ecchi yuri love triangle with more yuri on the side.

Amanchu Advance Poster.png

Amanchu! Advance: More wonderfulness from our favorite sexy ambiguously gay half-Muppet couple and their cute and sexy half-Muppet friends…and one half-Muppet otouto.

Comic Girls.jpg

Comic Girls: Another Girls Club show about aspiring mangaka like Doujin Work, ManGirl! and Comic Party before it. Heard really good things about this one. No manga spoilers please.

Mahou Shoujo Site

Mahou Shoujo Site: Another Moepocalypse show, another anime for the uneducated masses of fools to yell “Madoka-ripoff” again. It’s been nearly a decade. Give it a rest…Anyway I’ve seen enough of these to know what to expect. Heard this one was one of the most intense out there. We’ll see how far the anime is willing to go to mess with these girls or downright destroy them.

Usa Musume

Uma Musume: That show about horse girls. The anime trailer didn’t show much yuri potential compared to the one for the mobile game but the cast is mainly horse girls so let’s hope for the best. Did see a male teacher alongside two female ones in the cast but he’s probably an adult not worth stressing over. I have better things to do than worry myself over that crap.

Leftovers I’ll continue covering are Hugtto! PreCure and Toji no Miko.



Most likely not covering any of these but will watch them on the side.

Lostorage Conflated WIXOSS.jpg

Lostorage Conflated WIXOSS: I admit to not yet having finished the first half of this WIXOSS sequel but I’ll get to it before the second half starts.

Cutie Honey Universe.jpg

Cutie Honey Universe: Another modern reboot of an oldie. Hopefully there will be SOME side-yuri like the old show but I’m not holding my breath. It won’t be like RE;Cutie Honey that’s for sure.

Gun Gale Online.jpg

Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online. Dunno what to expect from this one at all. This will be the first ever SAO show I watch as I have zero interest in the main series.

Layton Mystery.jpg

That show starring Professor Layton’s daughter: Should be a fun watch.

I think that’s it. Maybe Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro could be the Pop Team Epic of the Spring season so it could get added depending on the premiere.

    Don’t know how well it’ll reflect the show, but the audio dramas are PREEEETTY yuri. So I expect it’ll show up in this too!. Anyway, my personal list:
    Must watch!
    My Hero Academia S3
    SAO Alternative (Iv’e watched everything SAO so far, and actually like the series. Need to get the games someday…)
    Amanchu! Advance! (this is going to be very sad I think…)
    Uma Musume Pretty Derby (I already explained this one)
    Comic Girls (Much promise this shows!)
    Tachibanakan (Somewhat worried because the manga was not promising, but ah well. I’ll give it a proper try!)
    Aikatsu Friends! (Stars has had some….moments. But I am hopeful for a brand new entry to bring fresh life into things!)
    Kiratto Pri Chan (Idoltime had a….rough start. And Season 3 of Pripara was not what it could have been, but a brand new setting I have faith in!)

    Curiosities/wary of
    Persona 5 Animation – Still playing the game, and haven’t had the best experiences with the persona animes so…yeah
    Caligula Effect – Played a bit of the game, so might be interesting
    Mahou Shoujo Site – I’m really not into the despair kink anymore…
    Chio-chan – It’s….something. Not sure if I want to watch an anime of this, but maybe so
    Shiyan Pin Jiating – Might be interesting.
    Lostorage – First season was disappointment of disappointments, so I have about zero hope for this to be enjoyable, but I’ll give it a try. Extremely wary of this
    Hisone to Maso-tan – Might be interesting
    Last Period – Might be fun

    Continue Watching
    toji no Miko

    I find it interesting that both Aikatsu and Pripara are ending at the same time. I hope this means a fierce rivalry and lots of daring moves that are beneficial to yuri fans!

    Amanchu! Advance: More Teko x Pikari goodness.
    Fun with Angles: Yuri harem? Sure.
    SAOA: I was already planning to pick up the novels soonish, so I’ll grab the anime form too.
    Persona 5: Fun game, will watch.
    Comic Girls: Mangirl! (super awkward title) and Comic Party were fun. I’ll watch another like them.
    Mahou Shojo Site: Worth a watch, even if it is a Sakura-ripoff-ripoff. 😛
    Uma Musume: I might lose track of the characters, based on how many are shown in the above screenshot, but I’ll still probably watch it to the end.

    Continue: Katana Maidens

    Chio-chan: I’m not sure where I stand on this exactly.

    YES, this is what I was waiting for, WOW Mahou Shoujo site is being animated??!! I’ve been reading the manga for a while!! I’m honestly excited AF!! It is quite intense.. I wonder how much will they tone it down?

    Also about the Wixoss one, I love those series with a passion. like fangirling passion lol

    Ahh the ecchi yuri is here too, love to lie angle..please let it be longer than 7 minutes ❤

    I’ll check out the charts too, since you were so kind to post them, thanks a lot!!!

    nobody wants to watch Asasagao to Kase-san? but the manga was well recieved.


    • OG-Man says:

      Of course we all do. Besides, the show is 100 days away meaning it’s still a long ways from premiering. Most likely around the Summer season. That’s why I didn’t mention it on the MUST WATCH section.


  6. B-M says:

    I feel I need to mention that there is apparently yuri in the manga of the “crazy journey to school anime” Chio-chan no Tsuugakuro. So it might be worth checking it out!

    Other than that, my list looks a lot like yours! I’m excited for a couple of non-yuri shows too (Hisone to Maso-tan because dragons), but otherwise the real season stealer is gonna be Mahou Shoujo Site! I’m hyped to see some gory magical girl edge.

    • OG-Man says:

      Interesting. I’ll keep an eye out then.

      Hope the non-yuri shows you picked turn out to be good.


    • Basil says:

      I read Chio, and it’s an excellent manga. Legitimately really funny, and Chio’s relationship with Manana is one of the most entertaining things to watch. There is some yuri (a fair amount really), but as a fair warning, the most recently translated chapter has het implications for the future if that’s a dealbreaker at all.

      But that’s not much of a surprise, because the author draws 18+ doujinshi that focus mainly on het. That said, I’d still recommend it because it’s that enjoyable.

    Mahou Shoujo Site is my most anticipated show of the spring – having read the manga, I can say it is certainly not for the faint of heart.
    My other picks are pretty much the same as yours, with the addition of My Hero Academia’s 3rd season as well.

  9. FantasyGirlKanna says:

    Tachibanakan Triangle very excited for that one….really really excited 😀 The same with more Amanchu, yeah! Comic girls is probably what will replace Slow Start after it’s finished 😛 And…Mahou Shoujo Site I actually never thought of this one having an anime. I read this one before and dropped it cause at that time it was too much for me…though I don’t remember now what made me stop reading it. But I’ll definitely watch this one, I’m probably ready for it this time 😛 Uma Musume…well it’s about time for cute girl horses 😀

    I’ve been seeing Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online all over the whole week and debating with myself of whether I should add it on my list or not since, like you, it’ll be my first SAO (I also have zero interest in the main series LOL). But seeing you have it in your picks I might give it shot too (I somehow considered it a sign :P)

    Winter is yet to be over but I’m already looking forward to Spring 😀

    3 of the 4 must watch shows are on my list (not down for that horse girls tbh) along with SAO and WIXOSS. Should be a good season.


  11. The Otaku Judge says:

    I have watched all the WIXOSS shows so I’ll keep an eye out for the new one.

  12. I”m still way behind on Wixoss since I literally can’t stand the Japanese voices.

    The new series may have a different cast, but it may or may not spoil Destructed.

  13. LuzeriP says:

    My must watch same as yours. Uma Musume, if the story is like the manga, it’ll be yuri potential. A big one.

    Also some non yuri anime I’m planning to see. My Hero Academia, Caligula and Captain Tsubasa. WIXOSS is a maybe since I haven’t finished it yet. And for SAO, I’ll look for the reviews first.

    Love To Lie Angle: Looks interesting, I’m always up for some ecchi Yuri
    Comic Girls: I read a bit the manga when the anime was announced and it was pretty good. Adaptation of 4 komas are usually pretty good
    Mahou Shoujo Site: It’s been a while since I watched a fucked up anime. This seems interesting
    Uma Musume: Some pretty interesting designs. Will probably check out at least the first couple of episodes
    Lostorage Conflated WIXOSS: I have still to watch the previous season and will probably binge watch it with this one since I liked the first two seasons
    Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online: Never watched the main series but this one the poster caught my eye. Will probably give it a try

    Mahou Shoujo Site, I know the manga and is the madness that will made my season Intense.
    The main girls of the poster had a lot development and had a good result in the end.
    SAO Gun Gale Online, is a typical spin of with yuri-ism interaction between the girls, for a curiosity, all the people you see in the poster are girls…yes exactly.
    Amanchu is important to watch since a lot people still think is ”bait” because some misunderstanding, i hope this season keep the thing very well explained.

    I absolutely despise SAO, it’s my lowest rated anime ever, but I’m going to try GGO next season because it doesn’t have the cancer that is Kirito.

    And I’ll also be watching pretty much everything else on this list + a couple others.

    Obviously, I am going to watch Comic Girls since it’s a Kirara series. Also planning to watch Uma Musume because of horse girls, but it will be interesting how the premise will turn out.

    Aside from Cardcaptor Sakura Clear Card being a carry over, I still haven’t decided if I will cover four shows than the usual three. Maybe once the season starts is when I will decide.
