seems like there are more shorts than ever, or CR is just on a shorts binge, which isn't bad but the ones this season just don't seem too interesting.

I count 16 short form anime that will premiere in Japan this season, which means they comprise more than one quarter of the titles.

I've got 4 shows that I'll be watching this season, the rest that I've checked out disappointed me.

I think this season is shaping up to be great. There are some really good shows coming out, including:
-One Punch Man
-Perfect Insider
-Is the Order a Rabbit S2
-Noragami S2
-Beautiful Bones

And then there's quite a lot of shows with potential. In fact, the only bad thing about this season is those 3 magic school harems that are basically the same show.

I haven't dropped anything yet and I've watched almost every new show.

No, it's been a great season in my opinion so far. Sure there is some generic stuff that isn't great but that always going to be there. but I've been having a great time seeing the return of series like Norogami and Monogatari plus new series like Heavy Object, Chivalry of a failed Knight, Concrete Revolutio, and One Punch man. Besides that not even everything I'm going to watch because I'm still waiting for Seraph of the end and I have to make time for Gundam. For me the season has been pretty good.

It's not just you. For North America at least, it looks like HULU scooped Crunchyroll and Funimation. They got the the Gundam title for this year and last year, and chivalry of a failed night. 3 shows that aren't anywhere else: I guess their "partnership" with Funimation is over. Yikes...


Looks like I will be done subscribing here at CR and move to HULU. I am a huge Gundam fan, and I feel like I have been wasting my money here for a year. Since Mushishi and Log Horizon ended, I have enjoyed nothing on CR. Which is to say, last bloody winter.

There's isn't as much this season that appeals to me, but that gives me more free time to get through my giant Backlog. Also there's always no-anime shows to watch too.

There's like 4 or 5 that grab my attention this season so I guess it won't be disappointing for me

Winter season 2k16 (aka late 2015-early 2016) was pretty lackluster, only show i really found myself invested in was Rakugo, as DRRR and Bokumachi sucked all existing life out of me with their disappointment, and Musaigen, while cute filler, was still more of a filler show whose end episodes were surprisingly good.

Not many pending releases really stand out to me, but it's definitely too soon to make the call on whether they're lackluster or not.

I'm surprised that people seem to have not liked the last few seasons. While some of the concepts didn't appeal to me that much and made it hard to care at first, there's been several series that I enjoyed the hell out of.

Anne-Happy might be my favorite this season. Asterisk War was also enjoyable the entire way through. Re: Zero would be another one I really enjoyed, though I didn't think I was going to at first, definitely changed my mind on that one. Some other notables, really I enjoyed a few this season.

Though there were some series I thought were pretty bad, like Cerberus and Big Order. Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji Hoshimiya Eiji

...pretty much.

Oh shit, there's also Bungo Stray Dogs. I have respect for that one.

Food Wars is Showgate, so there is little reason to be concerned. Also, July 2 is 10 days away, so there is plenty of time to announce. Keep in mind the original series is also licensed by Sentai, so it any announcement may have to wait on them.

Dog Days 3 was an Aniplex of Japan title that AoA decided not to license, and sometime before that, AoJ apparently decided they wouldn't license those titles to anyone else. For example, the following season, Nanoha ViVid, another Aniplex of Japan series that wasn't licensed by AoA, apparently was never licensed to any western company.

Haven't been as interested in this season either. I think since I've been so busy with school and work.
