Summer 2016 watching intentions

13 fewer anime starting this season than in Spring. A slightly higher proportion that I will watch but nevertheless the season looks considerably less appealing to me than the last was. Good thing there are a couple of continuing series as well, then. And there are at least a few things that should be good, including some sequels to some decent series.

List after the break

I watched the Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun OVA whilst the internet was down (one of several things that caused me to watch less anime this week). First time I’ve watched an episode illegally in a while. This OVA was certainly different – the whole anachronistic Edo-era setting took me totally by surprise. And was great fun to watch, while somehow managing to mirror the actual story of the series.

Mayoiga – A weak ending to a not overly impressive series. It was worth the watch, I guess, but the resolution at the end felt seriously weak, and there were various things along the way that don’t quite seem right. Plus the fact that there were characters that they went through the bother of introducing and who then did precisely nothing for the rest of the series. Still, like I say it was worth the watch, being an interesting series rather than the gripping one that it initially presented itself as.

Asterisk – now that’s more like how you do an ending. I was a bit confused as to why they were going beyond the end of the festa at first, but now having seen the end of the series I think it’s better that way. At the time of writing (after finishing the series, not on posting this on the blog) there are 62 days until the scheduled release of the first volume of the series in English. I look forward to getting it.

Two stand out series of the week.
The first is Kiznaiver. I could see that the series was the one that had potential, but it just wasn’t using it in the earlier episodes. All that changed in the three episodes I watched this week, though, as it finally got into its stride.

The other is Sansha Sanyou, which I had been a long way behind on. I wasn’t intending to catch up by that much, but when I reached the latest episode I found myself disappointed that there wasn’t more yet. That speaks volumes about the series…

Anyway, about another 80 episodes still to watch, and some series are about to end. Well, technically some already have ended, but I haven’t finished them yet.

Placed on hold:
12-sai.: Chicchana Mune no Tokimeki

I placed 12-sai on hold. It’s the only one of this season’s watches that I can’t watch legally, so I just wasn’t watching it.

That leaves about 110 episodes to watch over the next 3 weeks before the next season starts. Reckon I can do it?
