(Update: Ochikobore Fruit Tart was originally a pick but it got postponed to Fall too)
Because of the madness going on across the globe, that it’s best to not go over here, many Summer anime, specifically ones I’d been eagerly anticipating, were pushed back to Fall. Some even got postponed to Winter 2021 like Vlad Love. The best I can do is, like in the Spring season, use my free time to catch up on shows on my backlog and pick up more Western shows. That’s how I finished watching the excellent She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, binged Steven Universe and picked up Harley Quinn. Expect posts on SU and HQ soon (The latter once season 2 is done). Right now let’s take a look at the few shows I’ll pick up and possibly cover this Summer. As always the list isn’t definitive so there may be potential additions.
Picks based on these charts:
First up we have the long awaited return of the Fishing Girls Show. An unfortunate victim of “you know what” the show got postponed to an unannounced date. Fortunately the wait won’t be long as the show is scheduled to restart its broadcast this July. What that means is unless the West gets Episodes 4 and onward before Japan we’ll have to wait till late July or early August for the show to catch up where we left off.
Now for the new Summer show.
Lapis Re:LiGHTs. Magical idols. Sounds good.
There is a third anime. It’s an Uma Musume chibi shorts show called UmaYon. That alone tells you if it’s worth your time or not.
That’s it. I’m not devotedly watching Railgun 3 and I don’t know when Healin’ Good PreCure will resume airing so for now these are my Summer picks. That means more time for games and leftover shows which is fine by me. Fall, provided there are no more delays, is super stacked so that’s when the blog will be running wild once again.
