WHAT SIMULCASTING SHOWS WILL I BE WATCHING THIS WINTER?
  • ACCA: 13-ku Kansatsu-ka
  • Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga (Ao no Exorcist: Kyoto Fujouou-hen)
  • Granblue Academy the Animation
  • Little Witch Academia
  • Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid (Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon)
  • Tales of Zestiria the X [2017]
So not a lot... Well, compared with recent seasons. Will be my opportunity to catch up on some titles in my backlog and work through some of those BDs I have sitting there ;).
 

Zin5ki

Railgun
Would it be jejune of me to watch Minami Kamakura High School Girls Cycling Club simply by virtue of the fact it has the longest name when both the transliterated and translated versions are concatenated?
 

Buzzkillington

Combat Butler
I've fallen terribly behind on this season, thinking about it I don't think I've watched anything for weeks (except Princess Mononoke) so I've got a lot to clear before next season starts...

I've been watching Konosuba and enjoying it a lot so will no doubt be watching the second season, LWA is something I'm interested in too but I haven't actually seen The Enchanted Parade so need to watch that as I assume it'll help (I'll probably have to buy that too :/).

As usual I don't really know anything about most of the shows and will wait and see what people I feel I have similar taste to are saying and go from there, hopefully pick up a handful of shows in the end but who knows.

I'll make all these lofty claims about what I'm looking forward to then end up becoming obsessed with Akiba's Trip or something and confuse even myself.

AUKN Staff
Not a lot leaping out at me. Quite a few I've never heard of, mind you, so it could be a case of a few weeks in I'll hear people raving about something and then catch up and watch that. Tends to happen a lot...

Definite watches:
- Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid (Its Kyoani, I have to)
- Demi-chan wa Kataritai
- Konosuba Season 2
- Yamishibai Season 4
- The Ancient Magus' Bride OVA 2
- Amanchu OVA (When able to view...)

Not much compared to other seasons really..

Of Interest:
- Onihei
- Youjo Senki: Saga of Tanya the Evil
- Scums Wish
- ACCA: 13-ku Kansatsu-ka
- Little Witch Academia
- Rakugo (Not seen Season 1 yet)


Film wise, I'd like to see Kizu, SAO, Itoh & Lupin.

I have a broad list of series I'm interested in, but I'll probably whittle it down to a 3 or 4:

-BanG Dream!
-Demi-chan
-Gabriel DropOut
-Handshakers
-Idol Jihen
-Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid
-Little Witch Academia
-Masamune-kun's Revenge
-Schoolgirl Strikers
-Urara Meirochou

Blue Exorcist S2 is a large maybe. I remember not being fond of S1 at all, but that was years ago, and I feel my taste has shifted a lot since then, so perhaps I'll like S2. A S1 rewatch is certainly on the cards before it goes from Netflix.
 

ConanThe3rd

Railgun
Quickly going though Livechart gives me this list;

Yes
  • Masamune-kun's Revenge
  • ēlDLIVE
  • Little Witch Academia (TV) (Though that could be next season because "Netflix LOL")
Maybe
  • Interviews with Monster Girls (needs to be interesting and not just "The adventures of Blando and his monster girl pals" as these are want to be)
  • Tales of Zestiria the X 2nd Season (Need to watch the first)
  • Gabriel Dropout (Depending on how funny it is)
  • Kemono Friends (Design nerd sensiblities)

Plus a couple of OVAs but I never watch those in the season of release so...

This season has the fewest series starting in it of any in quite a while. Hardly anything continuing as well.

Will probably watch/continue
  • Ao no Exorcist: Kyoto Fujouou-hen

Not much sparks my interest this season. Will probably sample a few more shows after they started airing. If not, I can always try to chip away the ever growing backlog of shows to watch :D

Probably just Konosuba Harder and Youjo Senki for me. Might look at Chaos;Child, but I'd rather go back and play the Chaos;Head VN first.

Would have watched LWA if it was on CR, but I am not Netflix enabled, so meh.

Well I finally gave in and got crunchyroll as it has a 14 day free trial and I figured it might save me some money only buying anime I actually really enjoy :p. First impressions aren't amazing, there's a poor selection for the UK & at 1080p the quality degrades rapidly in fast moving screens.

This list makes for depressing reading when I see all the stuff that would interest me but isn't available to the UK. I know I could vpn but I won't pay extra to do that and that means waiting in queues (fake ones in the case of cyberghost.)

Is funimation now a better choice than Crunchyroll nowadays?
