Post Reply Is it just me, or is the Spring 2017 lineup EXTREMELY weak?

I hadn't heard about My Hero Academia until just a few days ago, but just finished the season 1 binge and I gotta say it is really good! Season two is in the spring line up, check it out if you think you might be interested!

So, if you can take shows that are 100% pretty boys at all... StarMyu is actually really good. And like... certain other pretty boy shows that I will not name totally stole characters from it, and those characters got way more popular than StarMyu, and I'm sort of annoyed with that, but anyway.

StarMyu season 2 is happening and that is wonderful. I just hope you don't have to have seen the OVAs to get it because of course, the OVAs were never made available outside of Japan.

The Royal Tutor
looks gorgeous (and Keisuke Ueda is in it <3) but the plot could go either way (like the gorgeous looking thing with multiple blond princes in it this past season, but I seem to be the only one with a problem with that show).

Attack on Titan and... Kenka Bancho Otome, but just because of how ridiculous it seems, and that it's full of Tsukiuta seiyuu.

That's 4 things, which is more than I've seen in one season in years. Since AoT season 1, I think, actually.
And I need to watch Eccentric Family s1 and get in on that, so that's 5.

Every season has those "it looks like it will have low ratings and probably will"-type shows. It is also weak on that we haven't seen stories here or on Anime News Network where CR, Funi, or Sentai are each licensing 5+ shows in 1 announcement. That is, we have 2 or 3 news story and each lists at least 3 shows CR is getting.

It's pretty good unless action, character development, supporting characters with personality, and an underdog main character aren't ingredients you'd put into your cup tea. Definitely high on my list of best anime from 2016 and glad to see it come back to the fray this season.

I guess ill check out that and AoT and go from there. It actually feels like this season has a lot of S2's and not so much new stuff

Well it is hard to say, because I don't know what pretty much all but a few of the anime are like because I haven't seen them....

I wouldn't say weak exactly. There is quite a few titles being taken from VN or Manga. So it's a bit early to say if those certain titles are good or bad.

I agree. From all the previews there seem to be very few stand outs for my wheel house. Ive never watched nor liked the sound of Attack on Titan. So My Hero Acidamia and Little Witch Acidamia are the only 2 I want to watch this season.

I will take a look at a few others to see how they turn out. But nothing really stuck as "This sounds good" as compared to the winter season.

Edit: Oh, I guess Dragon Ball is actually anime, and it is this season. So there is that. But I never really include it with the season stuff like I never included Naruto.

Is it just me, or do people literally say this each time a new anime season comes around?

I never said this before but I think it's really weak. It's basically all second seasons of anime that is forgettable. From the perspective of someone who wants to watch a new series all the listed series seem weak in comparison to other seasons. If I find something worth watching I will edit this but I really don't think that's going to happen.

I'm not just talking about crunchyroll im talking about all the anime airing this season. Every new season ill go to anichart, read some descriptions and check out 2-5 anime based on what sounds good. But this season, absolutely nothing sticks out to me, and the only thing ive seen hyped up is Attack on titan and I never watched it. So, I might check that out from the start, but beyond that really what is there that's interesting?

In other words, try shilling your favourite spring 2017 anime to me


Rather let me turn this around and ask you two things:

1) why should it matter if hypothetically it is a "weak" season (putting aside for the moment just how vague or ambiguous that term is and how to define it). If it is then it is. So what?

and

2). why should we bother trying to sell you on anything? Are you going to pay us anything for doing so?

Unfortunately they really do. Every three months for years and years. Like clockwork.
