Since this season of anime is almost wrapping up, I thought it'd be fun to make a sort of preview list of the anime that's going to be coming out in Winter 2016! This is just Part 1, featuring the first eight anime I'm thinking of checking out.
Please let me know what you're looking forward to seeing and also what I'm missing!! I'll make a Part 2 soon!
Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm
(Four Rhythm Across the Blue)
Type: Drama, Harem, Romance, Sci-Fi, School
Here's the gist of the plot I got so far: boy who is good at flying had a bright future in something called the "Flying Circus," but he stopped for some reason, and now he's coming back to it while teaching a girl to fly and will probably end up participating with her but also will fall in love with her (and at least 3 other girls, bc harem). Sounds fun to me!
Snow White with the Red Hair, 2nd Season
Akagami no Shirayuki-hime (赤髪の白雪姫 2)
Type: Drama, Fantasy, Historical, Romance
I haven't watched the first season of this yet, but I'm going to just so that I can watch this one! I've heard the manga is quite good (so hopefully it follows it) and I liked the production company (Bones) work. This looks really beautiful. I'm not going to give a plot synopsis, because reading up for one might ruin something about Season 1 for me and others ^^
Boku Dake ga Inai Machi
Type: Supernatural, Psychological
The main character is a struggling manga artist who has the ability to prevent catastrophes / deaths by traveling back one day in time. One time, he does this and ends up as a first grader, so he begins to try to keep his classmate from disappearing. What will that lead to?
This is originally a manga, but I’m looking forward to its anime adaptation in 2016 as well. I heard there's a live action too but I'll save that for later. The fact it’s a noitaminA show is a plus for me. I usually enjoy most of the shows they air.
Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!
Type: Fantasy, Action, Romance, Comedy
This sounds fun, but also looks kind of awful? I don't know I can't decide. The premise: A guy who just plays games a lot almost dies after a car accident, but instead, a girl who is a "goddess" asks him if he'd like to go to another world instead. He says yes and says the only thing he wants to take with him is her (L O L) and so off they go! Then they're trying to fight a Demon King's army and what not?? It seems very slice of life fantasy/romancy, and I'm down to watch one of those next season. Let's see I guess?
Type: Action, Fantasy, Sci-Fi
The cast list for this show is insane, so even if you don't want to watch it for anything else, watch it for the seiyuu!! The show itself didn't attract me at first, but with that kind of line-up I got curious, you know?
Prince of Stride: Alternative
This is a sports anime based around a game called "Stride," that's something like a 6-man relay race around town. There's a closed down club at the academy the characters go to, but they need at least 6 people to restart the team, so they drag a reluctant new member into their shenanigans.
Luck & Logic
Type: Action, Fantasy
I'll be honest, what first attracted me to this was the main girl (Athena's) outfits! I just really thought they were cute and was down to watch just for that lol. The plot seems to be about a world where a 100yr war ended, and so the Gods needed a new home. They decide they want the humans' home, and more war breaks out. In all this madness, a normal human who is sub-par in his abilities (I'm not sure why) meets a goddess who makes up for those abilities and viola! They "head off to their destinies."
Phantasy Star Online 2 The Animation
This is being made to commemorate the 15th anniversary of Phantasy Star, which is awesome! Thankfully it'll have a totally original story, though, so we have new things to look forward to. But it is pretty weird that they're setting this "on earth" rather than on Phantasy star which makes me think they're trying to get the SAO fans, you know? Idk, even the PV I put above doesn't look super well animated, and usually PVs are better than the actual animation, so I'm worried. Don't kill this Sega!
