“New year, new anime season!”

“New year, new anime season!”, or so goes the ancient saying! It’s a time to rejoice, feed our inner otakus with fresh stuff and binge the hell out of new series! Unfortunately not everything changes and, yet again, I find myself with a buttload of anime from past seasons still on the waiting list XP Not that something like that will ever stop me from adding a few more. I’ll leave my personal choices from the new roster below, let me know if there is any good one that I might have missed.


Tales of Zestiria the X – 2nd Season

“Sorey is a human youth who grew up among the “seraphim” (tenzoku), spiritual beings invisible to human eyes. He believes in the folklore that every human was able to see the seraphim long ago and dreams of unraveling the ancient mystery to make the world a place where people and seraphim can live together in peace. During a visit to the human capital, he becomes embroiled in an incident during which he pulls out a holy sword imbedded in a rock and ends up becoming a “Shepherd,” one who casts away calamity from the world.” – from Anime News Network

Genres: Action, adventure, fantasy

Still haven’t seen all of the 1st season though…


Youjo Senki (Saga of Tanya the Evil)

“On the front lines of the war, there is a little girl. Blond hair, blue eyes, and porcelain white skin, she commands her squad with lisping voice. Her name is Tanya Degurechaff. But in reality, she is one of Japan’s most elite salarymen, reborn as a little girl after angering a mysterious being who calls himself God. This little girl, who prioritizes efficiency and her own career over anything else, will become the most dangerous being amongst the sorcerers of the imperial army.” – from MyAnimeList

Genres: Military, magic

Even tough this isn’t exactly the case I can’t really grasp what’s with the obsession of having little girls on the army/battlefield but alright, whatever rocks your boat XP


Chain Chronicles: Harcceitas no Hikari

“This is the story of the Chain Chronicle, a book that describes everything that happens in the world. The citizens of the remote continent of Yggd once thought that there was nothing beyond their continent. The continent was divided into several regions, each with its own king. Though there were small skirmishes amongst them, a lord, chosen by the kings in conference, always maintained balance, until the evil Black Army arrived. The Volunteer Army, led by Yuri, was no match for the Black Army. During the fighting, the Lord of Black captures half of the Chain Chronicle, as well as the capital” – from Anime News Network

Genres: Shounen, action, adventure, fantasy

I’m a sucker for fantasy themed things XP


Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu: Sukeroku Futatabi-hen

“Ex-convict turned Rakugo apprentice Yotarou has finally taken the name of Yurakutei Sukeroku III, and with his master Yakumo’s permission has attained the lofty rank of shin’uchi. He assumes the name at a critical time for Rakugo, with audiences fewer than ever. At the same time he has started acting as a husband to Konatsu, who is now a single mother. Yotarou thus begins the struggle to fill the role of Sukeroku, both as the future of Rakugo and as a part of Yakumo’s and Konatsu’s lives.” – from MyAnimeList

Genres: Drama, josei, historical

This has one hell of a long name!


Chiruran: Nibun no Ichi

“Strong, intense, and cute! The most laid-back Shinsengumi in history arrives!! An official spinoff series by Hashimoto Eiji (manga) and Umemura Shinya (story) of Chiruran Shinsengumi Requiem. Here’s the laid-back everyday life of the Shinsengumi warriors.” – from MyAnimeList

Genres: Action, comedy, historical

Usually I’m not into chibi stuff but this looks like a fun one


Granblue Fantasy The Animation

“This is a world of the skies, where many islands drift in the sky. A boy named Gran and a talking winged lizard named Vyrn lived in Zinkenstill, an island which yields mysteries. One day, they come across a girl named Lyria. Lyria had escaped from the Erste Empire, a military government that is trying to rule over this world using powerful military prowess. In order to escape from the Empire, Gran and Lyria head out into the vast skies, holding the letter Gran’s father left behind – which said, “I will be waiting at Estalucia, Island of Stars”.” – from MyAnimeList

Genres: Fantasy


Little Witch Academia

“Akko Kagari is an ordinary girl who joins the renowned witch academy for witch girls, Luna Nova Academy. When she was younger, she went to Magical Festa, a magic show hosted by a witch named Shiny Chariot. Akko was so mesmerized and inspired by Shiny Chariot’s performance that she dreamed to someday be a “cool” witch like her. This young and impressionable Akko takes Shiny Chariot’s words as her own motto: “Never forget, a believing heart is your magic.“ As part of a class, Akko and her classmates go into a labyrinth under the Tower of Luna Nova. There, a sealed ancient dragon was unleashed by one of her classmates. Akko tries to stop the dragon, but…” – from Anime News Network

Genres: Adventure, comedey, fantasy, magic

This one may sound like an odd choice for me but after hearing so much about its movie I’m willing to give it a try.



“The blade arts of the “Devil” tasked with striking down evils threatening a peaceful Edo! Heizou Hasegawa, upholding the role of chief officer protecting against crime and arson! In 1783, the heart of the Tenmei era, Hasegawa held the office of chief director of the department charged with sustaining safety in the region, suppressing the most vile of thieves and criminals, an individual largely feared, renowned as Devil Heizou…” – from MyAnimeList

There are plenty more coming out this season (you may want to check the full list) but for me those are the only ones that caught my attention… the only question left is how and when am I going to catch up with it all XPP
