With some anime only having just one episode left, the Winter 2016 anime season is about to end. But as the winter anime end, the new Spring season promises some fresh new faces, which we will be following for three months or so.
The new season will introduce some new anime, which some fans will be seeing for the very first time. So what new anime should we watch out for? We take a look at five new titles which may go on to become some of the big spring anime titles too. But remember, these are only the new anime, so spin-off anime like Magi: Sinbad no Bouken, or new seasons like Ushio and Tora season 2 are not included in this list. So without further ado, here are our picks:
Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto
What if you’re so cool that all the efforts by your jealous classmates to bully you would often backfire, and would instead make you look cooler? Well, that’s the synopsis of the upcoming anime, Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto. The anime will follow new student, Sakamoto, who is really cool, to the point where his classmates become jealous of him and hatch up new ways to make him look bad. Personally, I have been following the original manga by Nami Sano, which is totally hilarious, and I am hoping that this anime would be just as funny.
Bungou Stray Dogs
Based on the critically-acclaimed and bestselling manga written by Kafka Asagiri and illustrated by Harukawa35, Bungou Stray Dogs will follow Atsushi Nakajima and one very special detective agency as they try to solve cases which involve supernatural powers, which the police cannot handle. The manga has been praised by fans and critics alike, so no doubt that fans should really be watching out for this one.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
Objection?! No we don’t have any Objections at all to this anime adaptation of Capcom’s bestselling courtroom video game series, and you bet that we are keeping out fingers crossed that the anime will have the same amounts of suspense and drama from the games themselves. Do you guys object?!
Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta?
The title means “And you thought there is never a girl online?,” and the the anime will follow Hideki Nishimura, an online gamer who is traumatized after finding out that the “girl” he proposed to in an online game is actually a guy. However, what happens when a girl, who also happens to be a girl in real life, also proposes to him? Problem is, this girl, named Ako Tamaki, does not know the difference between real life and the games… The plot is certainly interesting, and this one is certainly worth following for all you RomCom or ecchi fans out there.
My Hero Academia
The anime has not yet been aired yet, however, some fans of the manga have already branded it as the “next big Shounen Jump anime,” and for good reason. The anime will be set in a world full of heroes with powers, or “quirks” as they are called, however, the problem is, main character, Izuku Midoriya has no quirks at all, and he is aiming to be a great hero, just like All Might. Will My Hero Academia be able to follow in the footsteps of its great Shounen Jump predecessors like Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Dragon Ball, and Hunter x Hunter? Looks like we are about to find out next season.
So, which new anime are you looking forward to see next month?
