OG’s Summer 2022 Anime Picks

I thought Summer would be a more chill season for me but after seeing the lineup, while not as stacked as Spring, there are plenty of hype shows on my radar. As always schedule subject to change and I will not cover every anime mentioned.

Picks based on these charts:

Chart 1

Chart 2

MUST WATCH

RWBY Ice Queendom Cover

RWBY: Ice Queendom. A RWBY anime set in a different universe from all other RWBY adaptations (main web series, comics, video games). Based on the title and some art Weiss will be central to the plot and if the main trailer is to be believed WhiteRose fans may finally get what they wanted for years in this story. This will be the first RWBY series I plan on covering weekly.

Shadows House Season 2 CoverShadows House 2: The thrilling mystery suspense show that hit peeps by storm in 2021 continues. The cover indicates an especially intimate side-couple will get more screen time. Excited to see what they have to offer along with more EmiliKate goodness.

Luminous Witches CoverLuminous Witches: After several delays the highly anticipated third series in the World Witches franchise finally has a set premiere date this Summer. What makes this group interesting is they are not fighters but healers who soothe the minds and hearts of victims of Neuroi War. Basically Strike Witches X Healer Girl. Dunno if we’ll get crazy visual effects or just cool songs but I’m pumped either way.

Tokyo Mew Mew New CoverTokyo Mew Mew New. This is a personal pick. I have a soft spot for the original Tokyo Mew Mew. I even enjoyed the 4Kids English dubbed Mew Mew Power. I won’t cover it weekly because if it’s anything like the original a lot of it will be an Ichigo het harem. At best if all goes as planned, meaning Mint X Zakuro are either kept intact or HOPEFULLY enhanced, expect a Yuri Quickie at the end and random tweets about the show. Excited to see what they’ll do in this remake/soft reboot/sequel/whatever it will be.

Lycoris Recoil

Lycoris Recoil: The most interesting original of the season, meaning I have no idea what to expect but based on trailers and the description of it being about restaurant that serves food and does various odd jobs from chaperoning to zombie hunting, plus the main cast are mostly ladies with a cool black male owner I’m sold.

Love Live! Superstar S2 CoverLove Live! Superstar!! 2: Fans of the Love Live anime as a whole were truly blessed this year. Not only did we get the awesome Nijigasaki S2 but coming right after is the 2nd season of Liella! The cherry on top as seen in the cover 4 new girls will join the team to complete the traditional series set of 9 members. Excited to see what the new girls will bring to the table, especially the red and blue haired duo. Peeps who looked them up will know what I mean.

Merm4idMerm4id will be part of an upcoming D4DJ special, D4DJ: Double Mix, introducing non-mobile game players to two groups who were mentioned but didn’t do much in the 1st season. This will serve as hype for the upcoming 2nd season in early 2023. Merm4id hype!

KAKEGURUI TWIN CoverKAKEGURUI TWIN: Spinoff starring the 2nd protagonist of the series, Mary Saotome. Hopefully it’s as crazy and gay as the main show. It’ll air on Netflix this August. Whether it’ll be all episodes at once or the usual two cour split between seasons (sometimes two) I’m pumped for more crazy gamblers.

Curiosities

Teppen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CoverTeppen—!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!: Not to be confused with the Capcom game of the same name (minus the 16 exclamation marks). Looks like another comedienne (female comedians) show similar to Joshiraku and Maesetsu!. Dunno how it’ll differ from them but I’m intrigued.

Extreme Hearts CoverExtreme Hearts: Looks like a sports idol anime. As the cover shows they do plenty like basketball, baseball, futbol etc. Will be interesting to see how they balance the sports and idol stuff.

Arsnotoria Anime CoverWarau Arsnotoria Sun: Another anime based on a mobile game. The ladies look nice. Noticed there’s a male group in the game too. If they appear in the anime hopefully they won’t have major roles.

SHINEPOSTSHINEPOST: An idol show with the leads supposedly having a male manager. We’ll see how it goes.

Prima Doll CoverPrima Doll: Girls look cute. That’s all I know about it. We’ll probably learn more as the premiere date approaches.

There it is.

PS: Mysterious Maid, the 2nd anime based on a manga by the creator of Jahy-Sama will get an anime this Summer. My hope is that after it the 3rd series, “Best Oppai in the World”, gets an anime too. If not there’s no justice in this world.

PS 2: I have no interest in watching Jashin-chan Dropkick S3. Stopped caring about the series after the first season.

    Lots to watch this summer!

    I totally forgot about Kakegurui Twin, thanks for reminding me to make sure it’s on my list.

    Also on my list is a two ep BanG Dream special, wondering if you were planning on checking that out as well.

    Even more excited for the Merm4id special now as I’ve been watching the weekly eps of the voice actresses doing behind the scenes stuff.

    Very hyped for another 3 months of Love Live! Can’t wait to see thr new girls in action too!

    I’ll definitely be watching Love Live! Superstar!! 2 and KAKEGURUI TWIN.

    I’ll also be checking out RWBY: Ice Queendom. Especially if we get some White Rose content. I am Starving for some! White Rose is my 2nd all time favorite ship. I stopped watching RWBY after Volume 7, since it was looking like White Rose wasn’t happening. But if it does happen I’ll rewatch the show.

    Well I obviously won’t be watching it there’s a silver lining in mysterious made being animated.
    They ran themselves up against the proverbial wall.
    They cornered themselves.
    They’ve been picking like the least gay of Wakame Konbu’s yuri stories, and like the only het one.
    Let’s see them weasel their way out of this one.

  4. With PRIMA DOLL the girls are similar to the Warforged from Ebberon a D&D setting, and the girls work at a café.

    as a die-hard d4dj, and especially merm4id, fan, i was so delighted they were getting an anime…and then very disappointed it will only be the one special. still, better than nothing! i think people here will be very pleased with the other group, rondo, as well. they’ve gotta be the gayest band in the gayest bushiroad franchise since revue starlight.

    other than that i’m ofc hyped for superstar s2 and keeping an eye on one or two others…

  7. RWBY. Shadows House, LL and Kakeguri Twin are definitely on my list to watch. D4DJ special looks cool too. Some of the others seem interesting as well, but these 4 are definitely on the top of my must watch list. Looks like a good Summer season is ahead!

    The summer is definitely not as packed, but a good amount of what I plan to cover is during the weekend from the looks of it. Maybe not as packed as Spring, especially since I have to return to the office at for three days.

    Also, more Love Live is always good, wonder how the new additions to the cast will fare.
