Summer 2017 watching intentions

A couple of the series on this list may not actually be watched until Autumn, most likely those on HIDIVE.

Continuing from current season: (4)
100% Pascal-sensei
Aggressive Retsuko
Nobunaga no Shinobi: Ise Kanegasaki-hen
PuriPuri Chii-chan!!

Will try: (22)

Sequels: (3 2)
Musashino! – no longer coming out this season.
New Game!!
Teekyuu 9

High Expectations: (3)
Battle Girl High School: Battle Girl Project – placing hopes onto this one. This should be good. It could be great. Don’t let me down, please?
Nana Maru San Batsu – At first sight my instinctive reaction was that this series would be rather meh. But then I got to thinking – you know, this could actually be really good. Only if it’s done right, though.
Tenshi no 3P! – Probably the series that I’m most looking forward to out of the upcoming new series. If it’s done right, this will be at the very least a strong contender for Anime of the Season.

Medium Expectations: (9)
Action Heroine Cheer Fruits – looks fun, but not quite enough information to put in high expectations.
Aho Girl – potential to be great. But not sure if it will get there. Should be worth a watch at least. Probably.
Gamers! – a series I’ve had half an eye on for a while. But only half of one.
Ikemen Sengoku: Toki wo Kakeru ga Koi wa Hajimaranai – this could be (unintentionally) funny
Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni. – this should be fun.
Katsugeki/Touken Ranbu – curiosity about this title from the mass of fanart and stuff, but it also sounds as though it could actually be good.
Koi to Uso – if this turns into an actual love triangle, consider it dropped.
Youkai Apartment no Yuuga na Nichijou
Youkoso Jitsuryoku Shijou Shugi no Kyoushitsu e (TV) – the setting does indeed sound very similar to BakaTest. Not sure if that’s a good or a bad thing, though, and this series will depend a lot on the characters.

Low Expectations: (7)
Hajimete no Gal – Several of the side characters look awful from the PV. Otherwise this would be higher.
Hina Logi: From Luck & Logic – mmm worth a try I suppose.
18if – looks like a very fast drop, but I’d rather make sure of that myself than just not bother.
Isekai Shokudou – I just can’t see how this can be an enjoyable watch. However I’m more than curious enough to give it a try.
Knight’s & Magic – not much of a fan of mecha generally.
Made in Abyss
Piko Tarou no Lullaby Lullaby – Taniguchi Takashi means this is at least worth a shot. Even though this doesn’t sound like one of the better ones of his works. But then again, they never do.

Won’t watch: (27)

Sequel/related series of unwatched/unfinished anime: (10)
Fate/Apocrypha
Hitorijime My Hero
Jigoku Shoujo: Yoi no Togi
Kaito x Ansa
Mori no Yousei: Kinoko no Musume
Musekinin Galaxy☆Tylor – not sure if this really belongs in here or in the “other” category. Either way I won’t be watching.
Owarimonogatari 2nd Season
Saiyuuki Reload Blast
Senki Zesshou Symphogear AXZ (although I do intend to watch the previous seasons)
Yami Shibai 5th Season

Other: (17)
Ballroom e Youkoso – amazon exclusive and I wasn’t particularly eager to watch it anyway.
Centaur no Nayami
Clione no Akari – murdered by amazon.
Dive!! – yeah. From that synopsis it’s easy to tell what will happen, and it’s utterly implausible.
Jikan no Shihaisha – much as I like that jazz music in the PV, I don’t think I’ll have the time to watch this series in the coming season. Maybe if I turned back time at some point I could, though…
Kakegurui – the whole tone of this series seems like something I wouldn’t like.
Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun – sports anime. And football -the most boring popular sport in the world- as well. No thanks.
Konbini Kareshi – Doesn’t sound interesting in the slightest.
Mahoujin Guru Guru (2017) – PV either presents the characters badly or the characters are bad. The same could be said about the comedy, the art, the contents… All in all, no thanks.
Netsuzou TRap – Why the hell would anyone want to watch NTR? It’s only purpose is as a torture device
Nora to Oujo to Noraneko Heart
Princess Principal
Shoukoku no Altair – murdered by Amazon
Skirt no Naka wa Kedamono Deshita. – not for me, thanks.
THE REFLECTION – if I had the normal amount of time I would give this a chance. I don’t, though, so I won’t.
Tsurezure Children – “the near-psychotic girl that pours her own blood into her homemade chocolate” – YUCK.
Vatican Kiseki Chousakan – just doesn’t appeal.

No weekly watching roundups for Summer 2017 + more

Due to my work hours substantially increasing earlier this week and probably continuing over the next few months, I’m having to cut back on certain other things I do with my time, and rearrange others. Amongst other things this will of course be affecting this blog.

Here’s the plan for the regular posts on here over the next few months:
– There will be no weekly watching roundup posts at any point during Summer 2017. Instead, there will be a single season roundup post at the end of the season. There will be no “episodes watched” list on that post as this would be pointless. I may also not give details about many series I watched in that post either.
– Monthly POS ranks will not be posted in this time. These are the regular (more than 2 per year) posts that take the longest to type up, and also the posts that get the least attention.
– Monthly sales figures will be posted as usual, though some of them may be late.
– Weekly light novel releases will be posted as usual, but I will not be adding series to MAL and may not update the posts with changes.
– A watching intentions post should be up for next season tomorrow. Autumn’s post may be late.
