OK… what else did you think I was going to choose as the lead image for this post? What’s better imagery for heading into the new season than a girl taking her best friend and dragging her off into new adventures? (Not fooling anyone am I?)
Anyhow, hit the jump and let’s take a look at the upcoming sequels.
The shows that I’m watching are in bold, shows my wife and I are watching together are in bold italics,
strikethrough marks dropped shows and (*) marks shows that are watched but not regularly reviewed.
Yama no Susume: Next Summit
Encouragement of Climb: Next Summit
It’s traditional for me to say that these aren’t in any sort of order… And it’s equally traditional to kinda sorta ignore that to some degree. And anyhow, anyone that’s known me for any length of time already knows what my most anticipated show is this season.
I was over the moon when the fourth season was announced. And even higher when it was announced that this time around it wouldn’t be a short – the mountain climbing girls are getting full length episodes!
Only eight of them because the first four are re-caps and side stories, but I’ll take whatever I can get.
(Truth is, the next batch are mostly ordered by airdate because that’s my default sort on livechart.me… I’m just scrolling down the page there as I make entries here.)
Boku no Hero Academia 6th Season
My Hero Academia Season 6
When we last saw Class 1-A, an enormous battle was brewing between the heroes and the Metahuman Liberation Front… And it ain’t gonna be pretty. Anticipation here is a mixture of anticipation and light dread. And some concern over pacing… MHA has an uneven record in that respect to put it mildly. But it’s going to run for two continuous cour rather than being split cour. So no need to insert any kind of break/cliffhanger…
Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai! ω
Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out! Season 2
Another “I have mixed feelings” sequel… But a different set from MHA. Uzaki-Chan was at it’s best when it was just Uzaki and Shinichi bugging the eff out of each other. But not all episodes were of the best. It’s was annoying when the side characters got involved – and this season adds more side characters.
SPY x FAMILY Cour 2
Spy X Family should have been AOTS back in the spring of this year. But it ended the penultimate episode with a season cliffhanger and closed out with a pair of side stories… Which meant it ended up coming in a close second when Ya Boy Kongming! turned in a stunning pair of episodes to close out it’s run.
But I’m not here to talk about Ya Boy, because they haven’t even announced a 2nd season. (Yet.) (I’m hoping.)
Like Yama no Susume, there’s no qualms or second thoughts here. I’m flat out, straight up looking forward to seeing more of these three.
And that wraps up the sequels! Only four because I wanted to get the traditional ten shows in Part II – Original Anime, coming Thurs or Fri. Of course, crossing my fingers and hoping I get 10 because that post isn’t even started yet.
EDIT: Part II (New Series) is up!
So, what are your thoughts on this season’s sequels? Drop a comment and let’s chat!
