With every new season comes a load of new shows to check out and, as always, today I’ll be sharing with you guys the shows I’ll be keeping an eye on over the Spring 2017 season.
(I’ll take time here to firstly apologise for the lack of content, though. Recently I’ve been ill, stressed and have had a load of university work to do and therefore haven’t been able to make much content nor have I actually been watching much anime. I’m feeling much better though, so content should be coming out again!)

Asai Kei and Haruki Misora work for their school’s club called “Houshi” club, which execute any missions received from the Kanrikyoku. Misora has the ability to reset the world 3 days. This means that all events and any memory of the past 3 days that “could have” happened, never happened. Kei has the ability to “remember” the past. Even after Misora uses her powers to reset the world back 3 days, Kei will retain those 3 days in his memory. Combining their powers, these two solve missions issued by the Kanrikyoku.

They’re just ten of the series I’ll be keeping an eye on during Spring 2017. Of course, I’m still miles behind on Winter 2017’s shows, so I hope to catch up on them before then new season starts, but with university work and summer exams looming, who knows how long that’ll take? :’)

think clockwork planet will be my one to watch
Ooh, well, enjoy that! ^^
You should give it a try ^^”
I’ll watch the first episode and see what it’s like – it doesn’t interest me at the moment, but that could change. ^^
Other than Attack on Titan and the 6th season of Natsume, I haven’t made any decisions yet. I’ll probably try a whole bunch of first episodes again and decide then.
That’s a good way to decide! Any expectations for Attack on Titan?
Trying not to. If it had come out years ago I was super excited to see this story continue. But now it’s like I’ve moved on. I tried to rewatch season 1 in anticipation and realised that this series had lost its momentum for me.
Still, if they’ve done season 2 right they’ll hopefully rekindle that excitement and it will be great.
Ah, I’m glad it’s not just me who’s feeling like that! Let’s hope they’ve done S2 some justice!
Well, it wil; definitely be Attack on Titan that I will be keeping an eye on. I do have to admit that Alice to Zouroku also sounds pretty interesting if I am being honest. Great overview of the coming season 😊
Alice to Zouroku definitely looks interesting! Seems like you have some good choices there! c:
I’ll have a list up on my own blog in a day-or-two… But *Shingeki no Kyojin Season 2* and *SAKURA QUEST* are right there at the top. (Particularly the latter, another girls working show from P.A. Works? Sign me up!)
Seems like a couple of good choices! I’ll be sure to keep an eye on your blog for your choices! :3
