It’s that time again where I share my seasonal watchlist. As always the list is subject to change depending on whether I lose interest in any of the shows I’m watching or another show catches my interest. Picks are based on the below anime charts:
Oshi ga Budokan Ittekuretara Shinu (Rough Translation: If my favorite Idol goes to Budokan, I might die). My #1 hype show. It appears to be a potential yuri romance between a young adult hardcore idol fan and her #1 idol who may feel the same way for her. Best part for me is this is a sort of age-gap yuri anime WHERE THE YOUNGER GIRL ISN’T A TODDLER! Halleluyer!
BanG Dream 3rd Season. Hopefully S3 won’t have a super long drama arc like O-Tae’s from S2 and Arisa’s tsundere power will be back to full force. Besides those requests I’m ready for more band gays.
22/7. Another idol anime. I’m usually interested in them.
Koisuru Asteroid. Another Girls’ Club anime means another hype anime for OG. This time we have one about stargazing so expect to learn some cool stuff about astronomy.
Show By Rock!! Mashumairesh!! On one hand I’m bummed the third season won’t be following Plasmagica due to Cyan X Retoree’s story not getting a proper conclusion. On the other hand the new lead band look adorable and Cyan appeared in the trailer so it’s not like Plasmagica won’t be there. I’m looking forward to more SBR goodness.
Magia Record (TV.) It’s more Meduka Meguca and while I’m not as excited as most for it I won’t deny my desire to check it out. Besides, mobile game players confirmed there’s plenty to work with.
BTW, NO SPOILERS (As always).
To Aru Kagaku no Railgun T. 3rd season of Railgun and I’m still more excited for the rest of the gang (Uiharu, Saten, Kongo, Misaki, etc) than I am for Mikoto and Kuroko. Entertaining on the battlefield, not so much off of it (for me anyway).
Healin’ Good PreCure. 17th installment of the Pretty Cure franchise. Best believe I’ll be watching it.
There are some shorts about Hulaing Babies, Rebirth and Yuru Camp that I’ll be checking out too. I think Machikado Mazoku has one too.
Itai no wa Iya nanode Bougyo-Ryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu. I said this at the start of my “Average Abilities” coverage. If you want me to watch an “isekai” anime, have it either star or be centered around a group of girls. Yes, I know this party has a male member but I don’t think he’ll be as annoying or lame as M from Gun Gale Online. I could be wrong but my curiosity is piqued.
Runway de Waratte. I know it’s a het show but I’m way too intrigued to let it pass me by. I need to know what it’s like. Again no spoilers.
There you have it. Would have added Nekopara but the male avatar was confirmed being part of the cast so I’m just going to wait for sexy screenshots and hopefully a swimsuit episode. May it live up to the hype of fans of the VN series.
