Thank fuck that autumn season is over. I ended up keeping with a grand total of 5 shows, and only 3 of them could be considered particularly great. I think that’s the lowest number I’ve been watching since my very first season. Admittedly, Owarimonogatari and of course One Punch Man meant it wasn’t a season without notability, but there really wasn’t anything else worth mentioning.
The upcoming winter season is looking to be VERY different. I’m picking up a large number of shows again and it feels pretty good I have to say. Of course they don’t all look amazing, but by setting low enough expectations at least a handful should be pleasantly surprising! And there aren’t even that many sequels, which is always fun to see.
Here’s what I’ll be picking up:
- Boku Dake ga Inai Machi
- Bubuki Buranki
- Dagashi Kashi
- Dimension W
- Durarara!!x2 Ketsu
- Haruchika: Haruta to Chika wa Seishun Suru
- Luck & Logic
- Mahou Tsukai Precure!
- Musaigen no Phantom World
- Prince of Stride: Alternative
- Reikenzan: Hoshikuzu-tachi no Utage
- Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu
And as always, some thoughts.
