Spring 2019 was my off season as it were. Some pretty good shows here and there but not enough to warrant weekly coverage. Besides, I needed a break myself. Hopefully that won’t be the case this Summer because there’s plenty of shows for me to get hyped for. As always the watchlist can change depending on what else is introduced or one of the shows does not deliver.
Picks based on these charts:
Thanks to Dim-chan for pretty much summing up my MUST WATCH list for me by posting his own. There are a some he didn’t mention however.
First let us go over my own Top 2 hype shows before discussing the others in the above collage.
Symphogear XV (5th Season). I don’t need to say anything more. Longtime fans know how much I love this series. That being said, while I am beyond hyped and have very little to personally complain about the past 4 seasons I do have some hopes:
1: No more flashbacks for Christopher and Maria’s Squad. We have seen more than enough of the four ladies’ tragic pasts and need not cover any more nooks and crannies because they have all been dug up by this point. Give them other kinds of story arcs besides overcoming their past demons. I know it’s especially a meme for Christopher but COME ON! No more emotionally torturing the tsundere with major gunns.
2: The Bavarian Illuminati bigwigs will fight instead of other Agents.
3: #7’s triumphant return.
4: THAT finally happens. I mean it’s 5 seasons. I know it isn’t needed at all because we know they’re set for life but it couldn’t hurt to see the magic on screen.
That’s it. Give me that and I’m happy. Just give me these 4 things.
Dumbbell nan Kilo Moteru?
Dream Anime #4: “Starring All-Girl Bodybuilders or a show about muscle babes”. I know there’s a male trainer (Because of course there is) but I was assured by a manga reader that he is no threat. Plus there’s a female trainer as well so hopefully that will help balance things out. Other than that it’s a show about sexy ladies working out and doing everything they can to keep in shape. It will hopefully be as educational as it is sexy.
Now for the rest of my Must Watch.
Machikado Mazoku: The wait will soon be over for we’re finally getting a Manga Time Kirara anime adaptation! This time starring a girl turned into a demon against her will and forced to fight against the local magical girl, all while cursed with an eternal monthly debt. Sign me up!
Sounan Desu-ka? Show about sexy girls stranded on a deserted island forced to learn how to survive in the wild. It’s like Cast Away or Survivor but with hot chicks. Sold! Hopefully the episodes will be 10+ and not 3 minute shorts.
Update: Episodes will be around 15 minutes. Excelente.
RE;Stage Dreamy Days. The requisite idol show of the season. Fingers crossed a certain duo are also set to appear. Otherwise I have my goggles ready.
Granbelm: While this is a MUST WATCH I have no idea what to expect so think of it as teetering between MW and Curiosity. I am super intrigued though.
Joshikousei no Mudazukai: Hopefully it’ll be as funny as Sayonara Zetsubou-Sensei minus the het harem nonsense.
I was going to include Tajina-senpai but that’s currently based on Tajina-senpai herself being super hot. Plus the episodes are supposedly short. We’ll see what happens. It’ll either be a het harem or an ecchi comedy.
Leftovers include Carole & Tuesday, Star Twinkle PreCure and Aikatsu Friends 2!
There you go.
