So it’s finally 2019. I want new shows!
I’m picking up 14 shows this season, but with my 3 shows from last season, so in total it’s 17. Might not sound like much, but I will see which shows worth picking up, I will pick them up during the season.
So let’s get this post done with.
3D Kanojo 2
I’m probably the rare ones out there who enjoyed this show. It had quite a few glaring flaws, but it was relatable to me, in a way. The romance is too sweet to resist.
I really can’t wait for more, I was glad that S2 is coming. I really wish I get to see live-action, but looks like I have to wait.
5-Toubun no Hanayome
This is a rather unique setting, and also romance, and also lowkey harem. This is going to be great. Looking at the cast list, oh boy, it’s going to be lit.
Watching the PV looks great. But I am not impressed with Matsuoka Yoshitsugu. That will be the one and only flaw this show is gonna have.
Characters looks great, animation quality looks pretty decent.
Is this my Release the Spyce sequel?
Cast list is a great mixture of veterans and newbies. The PV shows quite a lot of stuff and it does look rather promising.
Silver Link is back, I think I can just sit back, relax and enjoy the character designs and combat scenes.
Date A Live III
I have been waiting for this. I am surprised that J.C.Staff actually picked this up. They have a lot of expectations to meet.
Looking at the PV, character designs so far looked rather on par, but sometimes it does get kind of inconsistent. Another thing about J.C.Staff is that they like to oversharpen animations, and I think it’s actually harming the art of the show.
AIC PLUS+ still is the best looking, judging from the PV, but it might change, we’ll see.
Domestic na Kanojo
This is going to be a sketchy one.
The PV looks rather weird for me, but I’m down for some weird stuff so yeah.
Character designs looks nice to look at, Diomedea is animating, so I’m going to hold my breath.
But this show will definitely be my new guilty pleasure.
Oh boi, another Namori-designed original anime. This might be the actual Release The Spyce sequel right here.
But this time is more of a pure Mahou Shoujo, looks rather cute. I think I’m hooked by just looking at the PVs.
Girly Air Force
Is this Strike Witches but with actual planes and pants?
Satelight is back. Character designs look oddly similar to Conception. Story looks rather simple, hopefully they won’t screw it up too much.
Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai: Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunousen
The PV is very vague, but does intrigue me. A-1 is finally back to making some slice-of-life. Character designs looks rather nice, the cast is great. Kaguya sounds like the next Tanaka Atsuko to be honest.
But we”ll see.
Mahou Shoujo Tokushusen Asuka
The PV looks lit. The combat scenes already pulled me in. The character designs looked rather… Sanzigen? The PV looked like Sanzigen is involved with some of the CGI.
The cast looks pretty nice too. So can’t wait.
I used to play this game, but dropped it a few months later, as the rewards felt undermined and the gameplay do get repetitive.
But hopefully the anime would do something to make me return to the game.
Tate no Yuusha no Nariagari
Oh boi, 4 boys stuck in VRMMO and of course, they hired Matsuoka Yoshitsugu.
Ugh, I will not put my expectations high on this one.
Ueno-san wa Bukiyou
Oh boi, this comedy will drive me insane. Can’t wait. I need some anti-depressants in anime form.
Virtual-san wa Miteiru
Another meme show, oh boy. I really wonder how this will pan out. I am genuinely confused.
Watashi ni Tenshi ga Maiorita!
Is this the Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san or MaidUsa sequel?
I really can’t wait for this too. Now my season is complete, a bunch of combat shows, an epic comedy and a chill show.
I will be watching Index III, Slime and SAO: Alicization too so my season is pretty much on average on the number of shows I’m supposed to watch.
This season looked rather lackluster. Some looks really good, some looks like it’s going to be a failure. I will pick up some more if any of the other shows got my attention
I will write my Fall 2018 wrap up in the coming days. I did pick up some shows midseason so it will be a pretty long post.
I will see you guys then!
