ANIME: SPRING 2017 (WHAT AM I WATCHING?) PART 1 of 2
Most of the animes that will be coming in Spring are already on MAL (https://myanimelist.net/anime/season/2017/spring) or Anime Chart or Live Chart https://www.livechart.me/winter-2017/tv
- Some Sequels I am not going to follow up...
Boruto: Naruto Next Generations - A sequel of Naruto. Well it's his son... I didn't watch the first so I am not going to waste my time on it.
Berserk (2017) - Another sequel of anime I didn't watch but plan to watch so.. . probably a no-go for now.
That's a lot of animes I am going to try... 28 animes plus the 5 I am already planning to watch... There are some that really interest me... read the below information
a) Definitely Going to Watch (All of them are sequels) (5)
Probably the first anime that comes to our mind, is undoubtly Shingeki no Kyojin Season 2 (Or in English - Attack on Titan) - After four years waiting here it comes... I just recently watched the first season (yeah I know...). This anime will be a direct sequel of the first. They are now starting the war on the Titans with the help of Eren, Mikasa, Armin and Levi.
Next we have Boku no Hero Academia 2nd Season... It's also a sequel of the first (I must say I am currently preparing for it watching the first season). It's also a no-brainer to me.
Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata ♭ - A sequel of Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend. It is also a no brainer to watch having watch and enjoy the first season
b) Probably going to Watch
LYS Really looking forward on this anime. Look different... Made from A-1 Pictures, there's nothing to go wrong here...
Synopsis The "new sibling romantic comedy" revolves around Masamune Izumi, a light novel author in high school. Masamune's little sister is Sagiri, a shut-in girl who hasn't left her room for an entire year. She even forces her brother to make and bring her meals when she stomps the floor. Masamune wants his sister to leave her room, because the two of them are each other's only family.
Masamune's novel illustrator, pen name "Eromanga," draws extremely perverted drawings, and is very reliable. Masamune had never met his illustrator, and figured he was just a disgusting, perverted otaku. However, the truth is revealed... that his "Eromanga-sensei" is his own younger sister! To add to the chaos that erupts between the siblings, a beautiful, female, best-selling shoujo manga creator becomes their rival!
Lys This anime looks weird... But the image is great. Xebec is the company doing it. They made Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2199 and Pandora Hearts.
Synopsis One day, a black box suddenly crashed into the house of the high school dropout Naoto Miura. Inside it was a female automaton. The endless cycle of failure and success.
The world that does change and the mankind that does not change. At a time where reality and fantasy are screaming, the encounters of these two make the gears of fate move!

You, will you be a worshipper of the devil lords? These beautiful lords lead humans to the seven deadly sins: pride, envy, wrath, sloth, greed, gluttony, and lust. A revealing fantasy that craves to corruption and happiness starts now.
Shuumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii desu ka?
What do you do at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us?

Five hundred years have passed since the humans went extinct at the hands of the fearsome and mysterious 'Beasts'. The surviving races now make their homes up on floating islands in the sky, out of reach of all but the most mobile of Beasts.
Only a small group of young girls, the Leprechauns, can wield the ancient weapons needed to fend off invasions from these creatures. Into the girls’ unstable and fleeting lives, where a call to certain death could come at any moment, enters an unlikely character: a young man who lost everything in his final battle five hundred years ago, the last living human awakened from a long, icy slumber.
Unable to fight any longer, Willem becomes the father that the girls never had, caring for and nurturing them even as he struggles to come to terms with his new life, in which he feels the pain of helplessly waiting for his loved ones to return home from battle that his 'Daughter' once felt for him so long ago. Together, Willem and the girls gradually come to understand what family means and what is truly worth protecting.

c) Going to Give it a Try
Zero kara Hajimeru Mahou no Sho
LYS Looks great on "paper". Let us hope it is... White Fox is the studio converting this light novel into anime. They are famous for making Steins;Gate or Akame ga Kill! or even Re:Zero -so one thing is for sure, good graphics and good action scenes
Synopsis Year 526 of the Liturgical Calendar.
The world knew that witches existed, and that they practiced the notorious art of sorcery.
Nevertheless, the world did not know anything about the study of magic.
Our story follows a half-man, half-beast mercenary; humans mockingly call his kind the “fallen beasts”. He always dreamt of becoming a human, but one day, he met a witch who would change his life forever.
“Do you desire a human form? Then be my escort, mercenary!”
The witch introduced herself as “Zero”, and explained that she was searching for a one-of-a-kind magical tome that bandits had stolen from her lair. Entitled “The Book of Zero”, the grimoire supposedly contained valuable magical knowledge that could be used to effortlessly bring the world to its knees.
Thus, in order to realize his dream of becoming a human, the mercenary must accompany Zero on her journey—despite her being one of the witches he so loathed.
This is the story of a haughty sorceress and a kindhearted beast.
LYS From a company EMT² which I drop two anime I am not very optimistic but it seems a good plot... In MAL the best score is Nyanko Days (Which I dropped) with 6.85 The first sentence is a parody to Death Note?

This magical and very familiar item belongs to an angel named Guri whose job as cupid is to create couples. However, she accidentally writes down Aino Seiji, a regular high school student, and unless he kisses someone, Guri will die. She convinces Seiji to go kiss his crush, Hiyama Akane, the school's popular girl who turns out has even stronger feelings for him, bordering on obsessive and psychotic. Eventually Akane and Seiji come together but not before Guri decides that she likes Seiji as well. What seems awesome to most guys becomes hell for Seiji who just wants a normal relationship with girls.
