Upcoming Anime of Spring 2017 – Part 1

Cross-posted from my work at TheDigiQuest.com

Every anime season, I snoop around AniChart and MyAnimeList for those special upcoming anime that will integrate into my weekly routine over the next three months. I prepare a list of everything I predict will be noteworthy and whatever else my silly anime taste picks up along the way. Thus far, each season has been a fairly tight list, consisting of no more than four series that peak my interest. And, while I’ve missed one or two gems, I’m pretty confident in my keen eye. This time, however, Spring is jam-packed with so many anime that I’ll be splitting this list into two posts. So, buckle up anime boys and girls because the Japanese train is about to roll on into the station with a heaping supply of fresh anime.

Winter 2017 Anime – Most Anticipated

Update: This post originates from my website, TheDigiQuest.com.

The new year is upon us and with that comes a steaming hot plate of new anime. For those unaware, we’ve begun the anime winter season which spans from January through the end of March so by the time this list has been posted, the first episodes of each series will be available for your, and my, viewing pleasure. While the winter season is usually one of the slower times of the year, there’s a couple series that I’m really excited for and even one that brings a smile to my face. Last winter was one of my more enjoyable seasons hitting me a sleeper hit like KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on This Wonderful World!, one third of my self-titled 2016 “Fantasy Game Anime Trifecta”. This will be my first anime-related post on The DigiQuest so I hope it proves reader with what to expect from me moving forward. Now, without further ado, let’s look at my most anticipated anime of Winter 2017.

Fall 2016 Anime – Most Anticipated

Update: This post has also been shared with Creators.co (with some formatting variations). What you are viewing here is my original version.

With the summer season wrapping up, the time to scout out the upcoming series coming this fall is upon us. Unfortunately, I’m concerned that the future is looking pretty bleak. A time of year that once stood as one of the biggest seasons, jam-packed with some of the years most anticipated anime, has become a place where random sequel seasons, ecchi harems, and other generic series are given a spot in the limelight. Sure, there are plenty of anime this fall that will appeal to a wide array of people but I’m at the point that I don’t want to watch something for the sake of watching anime, I want to watch something that genuinely looks good and interesting (and no, an anime like Keijo!!!!!!!! / Hip Whip Girl isn’t what I have in mind when I say interesting). This season, there are really only a few standout series that remind you why you get excited to watch anime.

Summer 2016 Anime – Most Anticipated

With the Spring 2016 anime season wrapping up, I decided to prepare a short list of my most anticipated anime for summer, which starts the first week of July. I’ve narrowed down my list to the four series I’m most excited for. Each item will include a description of the series for non-watchers, links for trailers/more information, and why I’m excited for it. These are not all the anime I will be watching this season but a snip-it of what summer has to offer. I had intended to watch all of D.Gray-man and play the Danganronpa visual novels during the spring in preparation for their new sequels but alas I failed. So, on that note, let’s dive into to what I’m most excited for this summer.
