Each anime season, fans around the world get hyped. What they get hyped for differs from person to person. What about me? Well, I’m weird, so what I’m interested in is going to be different than other people. Here’s my anime I look forward to hopefully seeing this fall season (October-December).
Chi’s Sweet Home (New CGI Series)
An anime series about a little boy and his cute kitty? That’s what we have here in this short form series. It’s been done before and my kids really enjoyed watching this. I plan to watch this one with my kids and hopefully they’ll continue to enjoy the silly antics of Chi the kitty and his family.
Crane Game Girls Season 2
— TVアニメ「クレーンゲール」公式 (@cranegamegirls) September 9, 2016
Crane Game Girls is a bunch of nonsense. But, this short form series was a lot of fun watching the girls think they were becoming pop idols, but in fact saving the world with their crane game skills. Yea, I said it was nonsense, but fun nonsense. I look forward to seeing more silliness and antics in the upcoming new season.
Haikyuu Season 3
I enjoyed the first two seasons of the high school volleyball series Haikyuu (see my Season 1 review here). The show about camaraderie in the face of difficulty, of doing your best, and of playing volleyball comes back for a new season. I’m looking forward to seeing how the team does against one of the strongest teams in the nation.
A short-form anime series (3-5 minutes per episode) with side stories from the original Pokemon games. It promises to be from a different perspective than what you’re used to, so we could be seeing some from the perspective of Blue or other side tale trainers (rise of Team Rocket? Who knows). The trailer (shown above) looks promising, so I’m looking forward to what they’ll do next. It’s set in the game universe, not the standard anime universe from my understanding – which is where Pokemon Origins lives too (a fun series retelling the story of Pokemon Red/Blue/Green).
How about you? What anime from this upcoming season are you planning to watch? My list is an odd assortment of short form series and one continuation of a series I really enjoy. Let me know in the comments!
