Spring was a touch weak, wasn’t it? Sure, there was a handful of truly great shows (Hibike! Euphonium, Hello!! Kiniro Mosaic, Kekkai Sensen, Ore Monogatari!!, the end of Stardust Crusaders) but that was barely anything else. I was watching fewer shows than I have in a LONG time. At least Bloodborne was great.
Green = sequel, Orange = not sequel, Red = neither
But let’s look forward, and goddamn Summer’s looking good. And, uh, has technically already started. I’m a bit late on this. But there’s a lot to be excited about, and not just because of all the sequels to shows I love. And Funimation aren’t even licensing anything I particularly care about! Oh, I am feeling so good about this season already!
Anyway, enough beating around the bush – here’s what I’m picking up.
- Chaos Dragon
- Classroom Crisis
- Durarara!!x2 Ten
- Gakkou Gurashi!
- Gatchaman Crowds insight
- Non Non Biyori Repeat
- Senki Zesshou Symphogear GX
Low effort discussion ahead:

Kiniro Mosaic getting a sequel was a bit of a surprise. Sure it was a fun series, but I doubt it would be as fondly remembered were it not for that glorious finale – most of my memories are of it being a bit hit-and-miss, a little too slow, and good-not-great. But thanks to that finale it saw an immediate surge of popularity and sales and now here we are with Hello!! Kiniro Mosaic!
Good news! If you liked the first entry of everyone’s favourite cute-blonde-British-girls-doing-cute-things-in-Japan anime, you’ll undoubtedly love Hello!! Kiniro Mosaic. It is definitely more of the same, but so much funnier and more consistent this time around. The humour is on point for the entire series with every episode being stronger than just about any episode from the first series, and where that amazing finale was needed to make up for some of the shortcomings, Hello!! Kiniro Mosaic is so good that a scene like that would barely stand out.
