With the new anime season comes another list of anime that I am excited to check out.  Like always, I will actually make some recommendations a few weeks into the season, but for now, here is my planned watch list.



I am a huge baseball fan and am always looking for another baseball anime to check out.  Battery looks like it will satiate this desire.  The series stars a highly talented pitcher that is unable to play to his potential because he lacks an equally talented catcher.  He’s a bit of a loner and a hothead until he manages to make a friend.  Based on the PVs, it appears that this series will carry a relatively soft style of animation.  It has potential and I can’t wait to check it out.


Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 3rei!

This is a continuation of the highly popular Fate series spinoff.  I’ll admit the last two seasons have been focused too much on fan service.  The manga readers have reassured me though stating that this is the season where the story takes a rather drastic turn.  Those unfamiliar with the series should note that this is a solid magical girl spinoff, with surprisingly high quality animation.  Some of the previous action scenes have been astounding to look at it.  This season seems to be continuing with the trend of the previous seasons albeit with a darker story.


Mob Psycho 100

Created by the same mind behind One Punch Man, Mob Psycho 100 looks to be just as crazy and interesting.  The main character is a powerful psychic that actively suppresses his emotions in order to keep his powers in control, but trouble seems to always find him.  Admittedly, I do not know too much about this series, but the animation looks gorgeous with a similar visual style as One Punch Man and also is likely to be a good watch.



This anime looks like it will be in contention for the show of the season.  It’s too early to tell, but the manga readers continue to express just how good the story is.  A high school girl receives a letter from her future self, asking her to prevent a variety of regretful things from happening to a new transfer student.  It’s a romance show that seems like it will have a ton of emotional moments.  The animation seems to have a very clean look with very nice backgrounds.  Everything seems to be going for it and I hope it can live up to its potential.

That wraps up this relatively short feature for this week.  I’ll be back next week with another review.  I have a huge list of shows that I finished and I’m going to try to write a review for each one.  These are not in order, but here is the list:

  • My Little Monster
  • Cowboy Bebop
  • Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinju
  • Joker Game
  • And You Thought There Is Never A Girl Online?
  • Kiznaiver
  • My Teen Romantic Comedy Snafu
  • My Teen Romantic Comedy Snafu Too
  • Space Patrol Luluco
  • Little Witch Academia
