Spring 2017 watching intentions

The season that Amazon killed.

The original version of this, incidentally, had 6 things on the “high expectations” list, the same as Spring last year, and the highest since then in the “will try” list as well. Instead, we’re left with even fewer things than last season, and still plenty of room for more to drop off.

Maybe I should try to just watch the raws… But I always miss stuff when I do that with series that are neither shorts nor things I’m already familiar with.


Continuing from current season: (2)
Aggressive Retsuko
Kochinpa! Dainiki

Will try: (21)

Sequels: (2)
Nobunaga no Shinobi: Ise Kanegasaki-hen
Shingeki no Kyojin Season 2

High Expectations: (2)
Hinako Note – Must watch series.
Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii desu ka? – lots of people have talked about this series. And everything I’ve heard has been positive.

Medium Expectations: (11)
Alice to Zouroku
Clockwork Planet
Eromanga-sensei – this sounds like something I’d enjoy watching. But it’s by the author of OreImo. Which makes me rather sceptical.
Gin no Guardian – It’s already started airing so I guess I’ll just watch this one to decide.
Granblue Fantasy the Animation
Kaitou Tenshi Twin Angel (TV) – I’ll just hope that this series doesn’t need me to have watched the previous ones.
Love Kome: We Love Rice – This might just be stupid enough to be brilliant.
Puripuri Chii-chan!! – looks similar to various series that have been surprisingly entertaining, so I guess I’ll give it a watch.
Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records – This sort of series depends too much on the characters to make any meaningful predictions of how good it will be.
Sakura Quest – I have hopes for this one, but there’s not really enough there to put it as more than that.
Tsuki ga Kirei – insufficient information to form much by way of expectations.

Low Expectations: (6)
Kenka Banchou Otome: Girl Beats Boys – I really don’t know whether to bother with this one. Easiest thing to do though is just give it a chance.
Oushitsu Kyoushi Haine – will give it a try. Not expecting much, though.
Quan Zhi Gao Shou – That’s some crazily impressive animation in that PV. It probably won’t be available, though, and I don’t really know anything about the series itself. Plus being in Chinese means that I’ll have to rely entirely on subtitles, which I’ve gotten out of the habit of.
Seikaisuru Kado – will watch with the expectation of a quick drop.
Sekai no Yami Zukan – as above.
Sin: Nanatsu no Taizai – probably a quick drop, but worth a try.

Won’t watch: (39)

Other: (11)
Akindo Sei no Little Peso – Looks stupid. No thanks.
Ani ni Tsukeru Kusuri wa Nai! – basically just an anime of fighting siblings? No thanks.
Buppu na Mainichi – not available.
Frame Arms Girl – Don’t feel like watching something like this
Makeruna!! Aku no Gundan! – I was going to give it a try, but that PV put me off completely.
Renai Boukun – This sounds like uncomfortable viewing.
Room Mate: One Room Side M – if the one with girls was dropped, why would I expect the one with boys to be watchable?
Souryo to Majiwaru Shikiyoku no Yoru ni… – no comment.
The Snack World (TV) – Don’t like that art style, and reading the background o the series makes me feel that this is not something I could like.
Tomica Hyper Rescue Drive Head: Kidou Kyuukyuu Keisatsu – almost as far away from my interests as you can get.
Tsugumomo – no thanks.
