Yes, I know, it’s a Christmas song. And playing Christmas songs after the holiday season is rather tasteless… But once the title popped into my head, I couldn’t get it out except by using it.
Anyhow, hit the jump and let’s take a look at a few of the shows I’m anticipating for Winter 2018!
Just as a reminder, shows that I am planning on watching are in bold, shows my wife and I are planning on watching together are in bold italics.
A Place Further than the Universe & Yuru Camp
Anyone who knows me well, knows that I’m huge fan of Encouragement of Climb/Yama no Susume: CGHAA, Cute Girls Having an Adventure. (I genre I just made up, and which would also probably encompass Non Non Biyori…)
Universe appears to me more philosophical and Camp more slice-of-life, but both appear to be worth a look see.
Dagashi Kashi 2
Honestly, I may or may not watch this. The first season was good, but by the end it seemed to have run out of steam and gotten a little repetitive. If I do watch it, it will be with little patience.
Ms. Koizumi Loves Ramen Noodles / Rāmen Daisuki Koizumi-san
Food and cute girls… A winning combination for Wakako-Zake and Gourmet Girl Graffiti… Might as well check it out.
Nobody seems to be quite sure what this will be about – but an original production by KyoAni goes straight onto my to-be-watched list. Why? Do I really need to say anything more than KyoAni?
Sure, why not? It looks to have possibilities. Plus, next to Violet, it’s going to be one of the most talked about shows this season. Which is probably an awful reason to watch a show…
Overlord 2nd Season
I watched the first season with equal parts interest and annoyance… It wasn’t bad, but it had some awful pacing and “suddenly this other stuff happens” problems. It was sufficiently good that I’ll at least check out the 2nd season.
Even though I often bounce hard off of boy-band shows, I can’t resist checking out idol shows. I just have to keep my expectations in check, which will be difficult with IDOLISH7 following hard on the heels of SideM.
Seems cute enough… Actually there’s an overload of CGDCT/moe this season, not that there’s anything wrong with that. (Contrary to the opinions of some.)
March comes in like a Lion (3-gatsu no Lion) and The Ancient Magus Bride
As per usual, what I watch depends mostly on who picks up what… And equally per usual I check out a great deal more than what I list here. This is just a quick look at the top of the list.
My Schedule page has been updated, and as always you can check there for a complete list of what I’m watching this season.
Anyhow, what are you looking forward to in the Winter 2018 anime season? Drop a comment and let us know!
